Here is this week's Mentor Text, "Fish Story" by Rick Bragg. Remember the idea is to read, examine, and then IMITATE (that is, make a few mentor sentences you own sentences).
You guys did a BEAUTIFUL job with your first Mentor Text writing prompt, You Won't Remember But I Will (stay tuned for student essay publication!), and the work you did in that assignment -- using the essay's structure to communicate your own ideas -- is the guiding principle of MTM.
Have questions? Please ask!
More next week, of course, but until then...check out dystopian fiction!
