This is a superb resource for students' writing classes. The sheet lists with numerous examples varies types of different lead or opening techniques that can be used for both fiction and nonfiction writing. These techniques go beyond the obvious normally taught to young writers and provide strong mentor samples for students to imitate. The resource would be a perfect addition to the writer's notebook. Perfect from 5th-8th grade.
