Mentor Text: What It Is and How to Use It Effectively
Mentor texts are a valuable way to allow students to integrate literature and student writing. Participants will be exposed to a variety of reading material, helpful texts, and student samples to help with the understanding of what mentor text is and how best it can be used. Participants will also participate in writing exercises that can translate into a positive classroom experience.
