Kids love losing themselves in stories, so what better place to help them find language mentors? Through engaging mentor text, this session will explore diverse, multicultural picture books as a source for language models. Along with direct instruction of language constructs, mentor texts are a terrific way for ELs & Standard English learners to notice how language is used by real-life authors to make meaning, as they prepare to use language for their own authentic purposes.
