Mentor Texts and the Common Core

Central PA Literacy Council

National Writers and Speakers, Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli!

How can we use mentor texts as vehicles to address aspects of Common Core including rigor, close reading, and writing? Issues of stamina, endurance, and motivation will be discussed as key components to reading and writing successes. Mentor texts for opinion writing and development of point of view will be shared. Participants will have opportunities to reflect on classroom practice.

Here is a quick youtube video from Lynne and Rose! (
