Tired of rote drilling and grammar instruction? Mentor sentences are a great way to model strong grammar and complex writing structure. This worksheet uses contemporary pop-culture references and encourages students to be creative. This worksheet can be used for whole group instruction or as independent work. The student-responses are always entertaining with this worksheet!
This activity can is free, but is a smaller component of my fabulous Writing Style: Unit Bundle! With twenty-two pages and ten activities, this bundle has everything you need to improve writing style, and includes lessons on concision, register, replacing "to be" verbs, omitting "I", periodic sentence structure, transitions, and quote integration. I use these lessons in both my high school and college English courses. As a result, I always see an improvement in student writing.
