In order for our students to feel valued in our classrooms they must be represented in the books we share with them. Whether it is the characters on the pages of our read alouds, the families, cultures, and settings represented in our novels, or the author's experiences that inspire the picture books we share, our students need to feel represented and heard. Our mentor texts can be more than simply books we use to teach writing strategies and skills. These texts can also be springboards of ways to discuss the issues of our time with the students who sit before us, looking for ways to make a change for peace and justice.
