I know that this is a common practice for my colleagues in this class, but I have had a hard time starting the practice. I have a few questions:
1. How do you find the time to find mentor texts? It seems like it would be a very time consuming practice, there are so many options!
2. How do you qualify a mentor text? What makes a "good" mentor text?
3. How often do you use mentor texts when teaching writing?
I would love answers to any or all of those questions. Help a sister out!
