Mentor Texts for Poetry (Grades 4+)

The practice of utilizing mentor texts during writing instruction provides opportunities to introduce powerful literature to your writing community.  Using poetry as mentor texts invites writers to communicate ideas and understandings in playful, yet powerful ways.  During the session we will consider  

-thinking routines to foster appreciation of poetry and text in verse as a writer

            -collaborative structures to process ideas and share thinking 

            -flexible poetry writing opportunities that encourage reluctant writers

            -teaching and learning resources to utilize poetry for a greater range of learning opportunities
