Last week at Two Writing Teachers we shared ideas about teaching writing with mentor texts. This is the blog series for you if you are looking for inspiration or advice on using all sorts of mentor texts in your classroom including published books, student work, digital media, and teacher-created texts.
In case you missed it, here are last week’s posts.
Tuesday, May 3: Reading Like a Writer, Step-By-Step by Elizabeth Moore (that’s me!)
Wednesday, May 4: Student-Written Mentor Texts by Deb Frazier
Thursday, May 5: How to Choose and Mine Mentor Texts for Craft Moves by Stacey Shubitz
Friday, May 6: Digital Mentor Texts for Blogs by Kathleen Neagle Sokolowski
Saturday, May 7: Create Your Own Text by Dana Murphy

In addition to last week’s posts, we invited readers to leave a comment for a chance to win our very own Stacey Shubitz’s new book Craft Moves: Lesson Sets for Teaching Writing with Me
Thank you to everybody who read, commented, and participated in our wonderful community of teachers and writers this past week. We used a random number generator to select five lucky winners from all who left us a comment during the series, and they are (listed by username): Maria, Mary Gunn, Bob Cadloni, kathyschuitema, and Tracy Meredith. We’ll be in touch with them soon.
Enjoy the book, everybody!
