Winter Mentor Text for the Content Areas

I love using Mentor Text for teaching in the content areas. I have a passion for project-based learning, so I frequently use fiction and nonfiction books throughout the project. By implementing mentor text, you can set the mood for introducing the unit, making meaningful connections to real life, and teaching important concepts. 

I've joined my friends with the Reading Crew to share our favorite Winter Mentor Texts Ideas for the Content Areas. You can download amazing free lessons to add to your curriculum.
