What Mentor Texts could Strengthen this Lesson?
Suggest a mentor text for the following essential question:

Hey teachers! What published work would you use to teach younger writers to carefully choose three good reasons to explain before they do their actual writing? Click here to tell us the name of the mentor text, to share a brief description of the text, and to explain how you'd use the book to inspire better writing from your students. If we feature your idea at this page, you'll earn a resource for your classroom!

A Mentor Text suggestion for "Top Three" Activity: After sharing Judith Viorst's classic, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, I ask, "What are the three most important reasons that Alexander is having a bad day? I let the students talk before we start playing the Top Three Game at WritingFix. They mostly have different answers about the mentor text, which is good, I say...just as long as they can explain a very good reason for their three choices. The same type of reasoning needs to be encouraged to get students to develop the best ideas for this writing assignment.

--Corbett Harrison, Nevada teacher
