Description


Sometimes a student's best teacher is another student

If ever there were a book to respond to the pressure to increase students' test scores, this is it. You see, Gretchen Bernabei and Judi Reimer have had amazing success using mentor texts by students to teach writing well in any genre. Now, they "hand over their file drawers" and pair 101 student essays with one-page lessons on topics such as how to:

  • Choose a structure across genres
  • Extract thesis statement and main points
  • Support points with details
  • Use rhetorical devices and grammatical constructions
  • Write from the point of view of a fictional character
