Hey everyone! So, this is the LAST of my writing with mentor texts lessons. I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much I enjoyed making and using them this summer with my 7th graders. If you try any of the lessons, drop me a line and let me know how they went. I’d love to hear from you!
This lesson is great because it’s such a fun way to get your students’ feet wet with argument writing. The kids get a kick out of it and don’t even realize how much it helps them get a jump start on the tricky genre.
