This is a power point to go along with the introduction to great beginnings in the Empowering Writers series. If you do not use Empowering Writers, this is still a fantastic resource when trying to teach your students how to spice up their beginnings in narrative writing.
All 4 techniques are listed together on a notebook paper background to model how to take notes. Then each is broken down with an example about Dottie the fire dog.
I found this incredibly helpful when introducing my students to these techniques!
