MENTOR TEXTS: A New Page on The Literacy Cookbook Website!


As a result of popular demand, I’ve added a new page to The Literacy Cookbook Website: “Mentor Texts.” This page (found under “Reading” and “Writing” because it applies to both!) curates excellent models of writing that I come across and that you recommend to me.

Check it out! And I hope you will help me add to this page! I would like to include ALL genres.

Please send recommendations to me at Please include the URL and a brief explanation of how/why you have used this particular text. Together, we can turn this into a tremendous resource!
