3/6 and 3/7 – Mentor Texts Search

For these two days, we’re going to focus on FINDING mentor texts.You don’t have to do anything with them yet, just FIND them.

mentor text – a text you find so compelling that you want to figure out what makes it so great so that you can incorporate those skills into your own writing.

In general, I advise that you’ll want to find at least

  • 3-4 different poems (mark which ones in your poem collection)
  • 1-3 stories/novels (write down title/author/book title in your notebook)
  • 2 pieces of creative non fiction (mark which ones in your essay collection)

We’ll spend most of today and tomorrow on the hunt. I’ve culled lots of options for us from lots of genres, so I hope it will be fruitful.
