Inside The Classroom: Mentor Texts For Writer's Workshop

This resource supports teaching language skills by looking at well written sentences, rather than poorly written sentences. Included are 20 printable student sheets, lessons, and teaching ideas. Why not put well-written sentences in front of students and ask them what they notice is working? The worst that will happen is that we are exposing them to sentences full of correct grammar, mechanics, spelling, subject/verb agreement, punctuation, and much more!
