Presentation: Mentor Texts and Digital Writing

Here is a version of the workshop I gave yesterday at the New England Reading Assocation’s conference on using mentor texts to inspire student digital composition. We had a great session, with lots of sharing and writing and questions. My last topic — gaming as a form of mentor text — sparked some interesting curiosity about how to bring that passion of some students into the classroom setting for writing and learning. We didn’t have answers, but we did have a lot of wonderment. That’s a start!
