Writing Lesson of the Month Network

...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!


Showing vs. Telling!

As part of the NNWP's Mentor Text of the Year Program, this group shares ideas for inspiring students to show details (not simply tell them) to the reader.

Share how you use "Live Writing" or "Show, Don't Tell" here

Our Mentor Text of the Year Program is back for its fourth year.  Last year, we focused on writer's notebooks, and this year we'll be focusing on showing writing.


Starting in September 2011, teachers from around the globe who are participating in this annual network will begin exchanging lessons, mentor texts, student samples, and classroom ideas.


If you already have used Live Writing by Ralph Fletcher or Show, Don't Tell by Josephine Nobisso, feel free to begin sharing below!
