Mentor Texts: The 6 x 6 Primary Traits Guide--our on-line Mentor Text Bibliography
The following list of books are cited in one of the NNWP's popular print guides.

"As a first grade teacher, I feel most of the trait resources available to me are actually written for teachers who teach several grades above me. Your [6 x 6 Traits] guide is a wonderful exception. Your thirty-six lessons are clever and inspiring. I only wish I had time to teach every one of them!" (Catherine K., Pennsylvania teacher)

Earn a free copy of the 6 x 6 Guide by publishing a student writer from your class at WritingFix or contributing an original lesson to us.

A Bibliography for Teachers Interested in the Going Deep Guide: In 2008, the Northern Nevada Writing Project (sponsor of this free-to-use website) published a 158-page resource for teachers: The Six by Six Guide, which contained thirty-six trait-inspired lessons from kindergarten and first grade teachers.

We get a lot of requests from teachers and librarians who are thinking about purchasing the Six by Six Guide but would like to know what mentor texts are cited in the book's thirty-six lessons. On this page, you will find a list of all the mentor texts cited in the lessons.

Some of the lessons cite just one mentor text, but some cite several. A few of the books listed below are optional texts to the lesson.

If you only own a few of the mentor texts on this page, don't fret. The truth is thirty-six is a huge number of lessons--more than anyone could be expected to teach in a lifetime of teaching. If you have just a few of the books below, you are ready to begin using this traits guide.

Remember, if you want to see a few of the lessons from the guide before deciding whether or not to purchase this resource, be sure to visit our Primary Traits Homepage, where you'll find six of the guide's lessons posted for free!
