Using Mentors to Teach Writing

Using Mentors to Teach Writing (K-12)

In this workshop, teachers will explore how to use published works to teach the craft of writing to students. We will learn how to read like a writer and use this skill to build an effective, engaging writing curriculum for students. We will practice our own "noticings" of craft, try these techniques in our notebooks, and discuss the implications of this work for our own teaching. Please bring writing materials and a favorite text (e.g., a story, book excerpt, poem, article, or picture book) that you wish to share with the class.
