Here is another note from Corbett Harrison on Writing Fix. Enjoy!!
You know me--I'm all about having a mentor text when I present just about every writing lesson. Go visit the mentor text page at my personal website if you want to read my philosophy that developed from this regular practice of mine: http://corbettharrison.com/mentortext.html
Great News for those looking for easy-to-access writing lessons: WritingFix has a quick-reference bibliography page for EVERY lesson that uses a picture book or chapter book as a mentor text. A lot of WritingFix users have never used this page. You can scan all the books cited by author or title, and if you spot a book that you know is in your classroom or school library, there's a direct link to that book's lesson at WritingFix. You can quickly see ideas our writing teachers had for their favorite mentor texts using this page.
I just posted this blog page that will direct you to how to find the bibliography of mentor texts at http://writinglesson.ning.com/profiles/blogs/why-writingfix-should-be-saved-reason-2
Instead of finding a lesson and having to buy the mentor text,this convenient page was designed to let you locate lessons based on the books that may already be sitting on your bookshelves at school. It was also designed to be a place to send your school's book order person when you were shopping for new titles to stock your school library with.
