ELAR: Mentor Texts & Sentences in the K-2nd Classroom

Tired of teaching grammar and it just not sticking?

In this self-paced, online learning course, you will learn about using children’s literature to teach students the skills and strategies published authors use. You’ll also learn a routine for using authors’ sentences as models for grammar and conventions that students can use in their own writing.

Here are a few of the learning experiences you can expect while working your way through the modules in this course:

  • Defining mentor texts & sentences
  • Reading like a writer to plan mini-lessons
  • Building stacks of mentor texts
  • Using a mentor sentence routine
