Welcome to Projectable Lessons from The Writing Diner! Teach your students how to use interesting leads in a piece of writing. This lesson is a culmination of some sustained work on leads. This is a very important lesson because it is an important step in helping students understand that writing is not a passive process, but, rather, an active one. This lesson will help student writers understand how they need to choose the best and most appropriate kind of lead for a piece of writing. This lesson is part of a series of lessons that will help students create effective leads for their writing and will also help them to become active thinkers while independently writing. The lesson is connected to the book, The Writing Diner, by Tim Hargis.
