PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 28 slide PowerPoint will help your students write more effective leads (fiction or non-fiction writing). Getting started is often the most difficult part of writing, for students. This lesson has students look at books, make judgments about the lead and apply what they learn to their own writing. Included as well, is a slide of lead options that you can print off for students to refer to later in the year, when they are beginning a piece of writing. Students practice a little bit with classifying types of leads and I've also included a few leads from popular novels for discussion.

This is a great PowerPoint presentation. I like the graphic organizer you included. This will allow the students to do some hunting for different leads. I can easily project this on the smart board and have the students fill in examples as they find them. Thanks for being so accommodating, too. I appreciated it!!

Thanks my students complain when there are too many words on one slide. This powerpoint is wordy - but nice price and great ideas so worth it. Thanks for sharing.
On  September 24, 2012Krystal Mills answered:
Thanks for your comment. You must mean that the last 2 slides are wordy, because the others have one or two sentences on them. Those last 2 slides are actually meant to be printed off and used as student references, as I mentioned in the opening description of the product. If you would like those last 2 slides spaced out over multiple slides, I can make that change and update the product.
