What is a “Mentor Text Moment” resource?
These lesson sets are geared toward helping teachers present rigorous language arts curriculum to their students by using read aloud picture book texts! In addition to thinking deeply about texts, these resources stress citing evidence to prove understanding. Mentor texts are excellent examples of literature and the elements you notice in them can then be reinforced throughout students’ other reading and writing. This resource can help and is based upon Kevin Henke's book "Sheila Rae the Brave".
Let this resource help you push your students’ thinking!
--Holistic scoring rubric (2 formats)
-Suggestions For Use
-Vocabulary/language “highlights” to help with English Language Learners or struggling readers
-Writing reflection “Pausing Points”
(2 formats—clippable for readers’ notebooks
and as stand alone pages)

Remember, our increasing rigorous curriculum requires students
to think deeply about sophisticated texts! This will not
happen without modeling. Using this resource
with a read aloud text can help you model some
of these higher level comprehension expectations.
