Live Webinar: Teaching With Our Mentorship Texts

The texts from the Learning Network mentors aim to demystify the writing process using examples that students can learn and emulate. We shine a light on journalism from all sections of the New York Times to show students real-world narrative, argumentative, and informative writing, then break down the “craft movements” that make each piece so successful. We also have a series of mentoring videos, in which students who have won our previous writing competitions tell us how they made their phrases sing.

In this interactive webinar, editors and teachers from The Learning Network will discuss and demonstrate how these mentoring texts can be used to inspire powerful writing for students.

Together we will …

  • Discuss the role and benefits of using mentoring texts to improve student writing.

  • Explore the mentoring texts The Learning Network and The Times have to offer.

  • Show you how to find your own mentor texts across The Times sections.

  • Practice the writer’s movements through exercises that you can immediately bring back to your classroom.

This webinar will last approximately one hour and will include a live Q&A. New York educators can receive CTLE credit. All participants will receive a certificate of completion.
