Teaching informational writing through children`s literature, K-8
The authors' first book, Mentor Texts, demonstrated how teachers can use children's literature to guide and inspire student writers of narrative fiction and poetry. Now, they have turned their focus to nonfiction, identifying a wide range of mentor texts and showing how these models showcase the key features of good writing. The book guides teachers through a variety of projects, samples, and anecdotes that demonstrate how to help students become more effective writers of good nonfiction. Information on how to select appropriate mentor texts from among the sometimes overwhelming offerings of children`s literature complement this valuable book.
