Nonfiction Mentor Texts
Teaching Informational Writing Through Children's Literature, K-8
In their first book, Mentor Texts (now in its second edition), Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli demonstrated how teachers can use children's literature to guide and inspire student writers of narrative fiction and poetry. Now they have turned their focus to nonfiction, identifying a wide range of mentor texts and showing how these models illustrate the key features of good writing.
