Mentors Cycle 1: Students as Mentors
Day 5: Topic choice mentors
Challenge: Look through your present students’ notebooks (or your files) and search for interesting notebook entries that might appeal to other students who don’t know what to write about. Make fifteen to twenty copies of each entry. Place each entry’s photocopies in a plastic sheet protector in a binder so you can pull a copy out and hand it to a student who may need some inspiration.
How will you familiarize yourself with the notebook entries you save?
Will you categorize them by topic, genre, or something else?
Will there be any types of entries or topics that you will not use as mentor texts?
