Mentor Text: What is It? How Do I Use It? What Do I Sticky?

Mentor texts are widely used in classrooms today. These resources provide teachers with a wide variety of options for content-based teaching across the curriculum. Strategies involved in this process can include the use of sticky-notes, stop and jots, and graphic organizers. But where do you start? What does this type of instruction look like in the classroom? Be prepared to apply mentor text-supported strategies that actively engage your students in the learning process.

Mentor Text: Across the Curriculum (Participants must attend Part 1 in order to register for Part 2)

Mentor texts used as components of the instructional process allows teachers to cover a wide variety of content using well-written pieces of quality writing. While the current primary focus of Mentor Text tends to be on strengthening writing abilities, carefully selecting content-specific text can also provide students with a more indepth understanding of a content-based concept, e.g., social justice, problem solving, or the scientific process. Learn how to integrate content covering subjects that tend to receive less attention due to time constraints. Using Mentor Text allows educators to hone their teaching “lens” and become more purposeful and reflective practitioners.
