WritingFix: Using Song Lyrics as Mentor Texts...our iPods Across the Curriculum Project

WritingFix: Using Song Lyrics as Mentor Texts...our iPods Across the Curriculum Project | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

Rob Stone:


So what would a lesson for students look like if it was inspired by something shared from the teacher's iPod? The purpose of this page is to answer that question. It contains many writing across the curriculum lessons created by many amazing teachers from nearly all curriculum areas. Each lesson is tied to the writing process, the writing traits and a “mentor text” which, in each poetry lesson below, is the song and its lyrics. Read, enjoy, and give some of them a try. We will consistently be adding great lessons to this page. Perhaps yours will be one of them.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Inspired ideas from writing teachers working in the classroom. Share and enjoy.
