Looking for a great mentor text to use with your students so you can lift the level of their narrative writing? If so, then all you need is this craft table and a copy of Meredith Boelts' Book THOSE SHOES, and you're ready to have over ten successful writing conferences with your students. I've dissected Boelts' Book and have created wordy teaching points so you can truly help your students to see what craft moves Boelts made (at least, the ones I think she made) and how they can do the same thing as a writer.
Say goodbye to the days of "Good writers show, they don't tell," and say hello to the days of using precise language to really help students understand what crafting strategies, like "show don't tell" really mean.
I hope you'll take a moment to review this product after you've purchased it. Thank you, in advance, for your time.
