Occasionally a great classroom mentor text is about a topic we're very fond of here at WritingFix: how to write better. A mentor text on this topic deserves to be brought out again and again (and again) in a school year.
Our Mentor Text of the Year program chooses a different book each year that shares advice on writing from a published writer. Teachers users of WritingFix are invited to purchase the text, incorporate it into a writing lesson, then share how they used the book at our Mentor Text of the Year Network. Our favorite ideas submitted to the network will be published here at WritingFix, and teachers whose ideas are published will be sent a complimentary copy of one of the Northern Nevada Writing Project's Print Publications.
