We will be using the book ORAL MENTOR TEXTS:  A Powerful Tool for Teaching Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening by Connie Dierking, Sherra Jones.    Participants who have registered AND  have paid by March 16th will receive a free copy of the text.  All other participants will be responsible for purchasing their own copy.

               Oral Mentor Texts shows you this simple, effective new way to teach, reinforce, and practice skills and strategies with all Students.  These teacher-created stories support a wide range of literacy goals as you: harness the power of oral language to enrich comprehension, help writers internalize narrative structures and craft elements, support English learners and struggling readers and writers to meet literacy standards, including speaking and listening.
