Writing sophisticated 'leads' and 'kickers' (endings) is a skill that many middle school students struggle with when crafting engaging nonfiction.
This engaging step-by-step video aimed directly at students - models EXACTLY how students can write ENGAGING LEADS that connect to their endings (kickers) for their fiction work. This video expertly explains three lead and kicker techniques (Statistic/startling fact, Anecdote, and rhetorical question). All examples are modeled using short samples of writing.
