Inspiring Student Writing with Mentor Texts & Sentences

April 13, 2018

Providing a model for student writing, whether it is through a mentor text or even just a mentor sentence, can give students direction and improve the quality of their writing. This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about using mentor texts and sentences to inspire student writing. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the purposes of using mentor texts and sentences as models for student writing. Teachers also shared where and how they find mentor texts and sentences to engage their students. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
