--Penny Kittle, author of Write Beside ThemIn Writing with Mentors, high school teachers Allison Marchetti and Rebekah ODell prove that the key to cultivating productive, resourceful writers-writers who can see value and purpose for writing beyond school-is using dynamic, hot-off-the-press mentor texts. In this practical guide, they provide savvy strategies for:--finding and storing fresh new mentor texts, from trusted traditional sources to the social mediums of the day --grouping mentor texts in clusters that show a diverse range of topics, styles, and approaches --teaching with lessons that demonstrate the enormous potential of mentor texts at every stage of the writing process.In chapters that follow the scaffolded instruction Allison and Rebekah use in their own classrooms, youll discover how using mentor texts can unfold across the year, from inspiration and planning to drafting, revising, and going public in final publication.

Along the way, youll find yourself reaching every writer in the room, whatever their needs. Our hope in this book, they write, is to show you a way mentors can help you teach anything you need or want to teach in writing. A way that is grounded in the work of real writers and the real reading you do every day. A way that is sustainable and fresh, and will serve your students long after they leave your classroom.
