Full Description

In this step-by-step guide, Carl Anderson shows you how to put teaching with mentor texts at the center of the way you teach writing in your elementary classroom. You’ll learn how to find just-right mentor texts for your students, analyze them for multiple craft and convention teaching points, and teach with mentor texts with your whole class, in small group lessons, and in writing conferences.

Classroom video, annotated mentor texts and student writing samples, and teaching and planning tools will give you what you need to teach effectively with mentor texts.
