This is a packet of three worksheets to guide 7th-10th grade students in revising a fiction or nonfiction narrative lead. The first sheet has students analyze their existing lead, as well as related standards and 4-point rubric. The second sheet guides students in gathering constructive peer feedback about their existing lead. The third sheet asks students to create a revised lead based on the peer feedback they received, and explain changes they made to their original lead.
This product is best used after students have drafted a narrative lead, and after you have exposed students to different styles or types of narrative leads (i.e., dialogue, flashback, descriptive/ imagery, etc.). I worked through the first two pages with my students in part of a single class period (around 20-30 minutes) and then gave students 2-3 additional days during workshop or at home to revise their leads on page 3.
