Writing with Mentor Texts Series - Lesson #4

Friends, I've got Lesson # 4 for you today!

It uses the book The Youngest Marcher: The Story of Audrey Faye Hendricks, a Young Civil Rights Activist.  The lesson I taught using it is about "unpacking heavy sentences," a phrase I first heard from the legendary Ralph Fletcher. It's a tricky lesson for middle school students to master, so the next lesson will talk about this, too!

Now that we are a few lessons in, I'm eager to hear what you think! Leave me a comment below or on my Facebook page :)
