Mentors Cycle 1: Students as Mentors

Day 9: Talking about writing with unlikely mentors

Challenge: Identify past students or students from other classes who you would like to invite into your classroom to discuss their writing process with your students. Similarly, schedule some time for your students to talk about their writing process with their peers.

What did your students learn by listening to another young writer talk about his or her writing process?

How do you think it helped to get another student’s perspective?

Did you glean anything from the student who shared that you can incorporate into your full-class teaching?
