Mentors Cycle 3: Published Authors as Mentors
Day 6: Using one book for multiple purposes
Challenge: Find a book you and your students love. Read it intently. Emulate Lucy Calkins and Katie Wood Ray as you identify all of the things you could teach your students about writing from the this text.
What was different about reading with the intent to learn more about writing?
What do you see as the advantages of using extra words to explain craft moves to your students?
What do you like about the craft table, similar to the one shown in Appendix C, that you may use to create one of your own?
What changes would you make?
