The Bad Seed by Jory John is an excellent mentor text for multiple skills. It works well for sequencing events, visualizing, characterization, summarizing, writing ideas, and most importantly, character in the classroom. The Bad Seed provides a great springboard for discussions on positive and negative behaviors. The "Bad Seed" shows negative behaviors, but it also shows how the seed becomes a good seed too. You can discuss with your students how the other seeds show support and help him improve.
