Micro Mentor Texts : Using Short Passages from Great Books to Teach Writer’s Craft
At a time when students’ attention is being pulled in many directions, writing expert Penny Kittle shows us the power of helping them to focus in and communicate clearly. She does that through the study of “micro mentor texts,” excerpts from acclaimed books, and the decisions authors make to craft those texts so they deeply engage readers.
Her book includes dozens of short texts and mini-lessons based on them—as well as many practice opportunities for students and demonstration videos for you.
