Writing With Mentors is officially out in the world and making its way to your mailbox as I type!
Over the last two days we wrapped up our marathon Tweet-a-thon — 14 days of sharing hot-off-the-presses mentors texts that will inspire, engage, and teach your students myriad writing techniques and elements of excellent craft! Here are the texts we came up with for the last two days. THANK YOU to all who shared with us, joined in, and inspired us!
We put your names in a randomizer to pick three winners. They are: @doodlinmonkeyboy (Jay Nickerson), @kellytumy, and @Shelfietalk (Kim and Jill, I guess you will work out some kind of sharing agreement? :)) Please shoot us an email with your details, and Heinemann will send you a copy of the book!
Over the next few days, we will be working to get all of these mentor texts in to the Dropbox and getting back to our regularly-scheduled posting lives — sharing with you the teaching questions that keep us up at night, new discoveries, and experiments in our classrooms.
