This assignment reviews what makes a hook strong or weak.
Part I has five questions that ask students to, given the thesis statement and topic provided, determine whether each hook strong or weak.
Part II has five questions that ask students to look at hooks that disagree, or are in opposition to, the thesis and determine whether they are strong or weak.
Use this assignment to help students recognize strong and weak hooks given a topic and thesis statement. I use this to help students hone their skills after studying the organization and expectations of the ACT writing section.
This assignment aligns with the introductory paragraph lessons available on www.NoRedInk.com
