"Does anyone have any great suggestions for great mentor texts (possibly excepts from novels?) that are not picture books? I love picture books, but my students (Special Ed) need benchmark texts that won't make them feel "babyish."…"

Miracle's Boys by Jacqueline Woodson is an excellent resource for a mentor text. It is rich in voice, a lot of dialect, symbolism, metaphors, as well as choices that people make. This book also has many quotable lines that can touch off discussions as well as be a focal point for a story or essay. She also wrote a book in verse named Locomotion. This book explores a similar circumstance with a diffferent outcome. I reminded me of Love That Dog by Cheech.

In previous years my go to text was Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli.
