Go-To Mentor Text Sources

Where do we find all of those mentor texts? Let us help by sharing the sources we head to first when looking for texts to guide and inspire our students!

Of course, the greatest source of all mentor texts is your own authentic reading life — what you read for pleasure, your beach-reading, the articles you click while you scroll through Twitter. Read with an eye toward what you might teach your student writers to do like the writers you are reading.
