Mentor Writing Teacher Tips
⚫I usually make packets of these for my students to keep in their writing notebooks.
⚫However, you can project the larger page with mentor excerpt on SMART BOARD or overhead. You can use as whole group (warm-ups, workshop activity), teacher workshop, independent activity or partner activity.
⚫I have provided the mentor text with a page of activities that can be used, or with the mentor text and the students have to notice things in the excerpt (such as: adjectives, punctuation, and more).
⚫Many times we do one together as a class and they do the other independently where I can check their understanding.
⚫I have them use the skills we focus on to strengthen their writing they are currently working on.
Mentor Writing Texts Used
⚫Public Domain Poetry [Robert Frost, Robert Louis Stevenson, etc.]
⚫Public Domain Text for longer Excerpts [Peter Pan, etc]
