There is so much information within these pages! I'm definitely going to put this to good use. In order for kids to become better writers, they need to see and learn how to do it, how others do it, through real writing. Only then, is learning authentic. I cannot wait to read this over the summer and use my learnings to help them become mini-authors over the coming year! The book also comes with a CD that includes a vatiety of texts in the following genres: poetry, narrative fiction, narrative nonfiction, informative/explanatory, and argument/opinion. Students are asked to close read the mentor text, analyze the strategy used, and apply it to their own writing. With the huge variety included, kids will be equipped with tools to survive any type of writing assignment, activity, or challenge. Highly recommended! Thank you!
