Foreword by Lester Laminack How do you choose mentor texts for your students? How do you mine them for the craft lessons you want your students to learn? In Craft Moves, Stacey Shubitz, cofounder of the Two Writing Teachers website, does the heavy lifting for you: using twenty recently published picture books, she creates more than 180 lessons to teach various craft moves that will help your students become better writers. Stacey first discusses picture books as teaching tools and offers ways to integrate them into your curriculum, and classroom discussions. She also shares routines and classroom procedures to help students focus on their writing during the independent writing portion of writing workshop and helps teachers prepare for small-group instruction. Each of the 184 lessons in the book includes a publisher's summary, a rationale or explanation of the craft move demonstrated in the book, and a procedure that takes teachers and students back into the mentor text to deepen their understanding of the selected craft move. A step-by-step guide demonstrates how to analyze a picture book for multiple craft moves. Using picture books as mentor texts will help your students not only read as writers and write with joy but also become writers who can effectively communicate meaning, structure their writing, write with detail, and give their writing their own unique voice.

Like the legendary London Bridge, Diana Lively has been transplanted from England to the Arizona desert. Also, she seems to be falling down. Trained as an architect, top in her class, she makes dollhouses. Widowed young and beautiful, she distrusted people who were kind to her, and married Ted, the one man who wasn’t. Maybe it’s a good thing that Diana Lively’s life is suddenly out of her control. Billionaire American Wally “The Ammo King” Gold also lost a spouse young, and in memory of his beloved Anglophile wife, Wally wants to fund Arthurian Studies at Oxford—and also to bring back to Arizona an expert consultant for his King Arthur Theme Park. Ted Lively, Arthurian scholar, fond of sherry and pretty undergraduates when he can take time off from belittling his wife, most definitely does not want to go and live among the barbarians of Arizona. But Oxford, eager to please Wally, gives him no choice. So the Livelys are off to Phoenix, where Diana pictures deadly scorpions, tarantulas and snakes, and Ted bewails the loss of his children’s perfect accents. And yet, in this most unlikely place, in the most surprising ways, Diana is about to discover that the happiness she thought was lost forever can shower down on her again, can flood her dry life like a lake in the desert, and make it bloom.
