PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Tuesdays with Morrie is the story of the impact that a teacher had on the life of his student. As you teaching Tuesdays with Morrie, your students are likely reflecting on the people who have made a positive impact on their lives. The My Mentor Essays asks students to put their true stories on paper. No prep is required on your part.

Students are asked to describe their mentors vividly in a 5-paragraph essay that includes an introduction, characterization, an anecdote about the student’s interaction with the mentor, and a conclusion.

This resource includes:
• Introduction to My Mentor Essay
• Essay instructions
• 2 pages for brainstorming/outlining essay content, with prompting questions to help students draft
• Example essay
• Rubric (144 points possible) that allows you to grade quickly and efficiently while enjoying each essay

The My Mentor Essay is aligned with Common Core. All documents are saved as .doc files so they can be easily modified by you to suit the needs of your classroom. The My Mentor Essay is practical for other non-fiction writing units and works well as a prompt for college admissions and scholarship essays.

This resource is also available as part of the Tuesdays with Morrie Unit Plan, which includes a chapter questions and a research project.
