This 28 slide PowerPoint will help your students write more effective leads (fiction or non-fiction writing). Getting started is often the most difficult part of writing, for students. This lesson has students look at books, make judgments about the lead and apply what they learn to their own writing. Included as well, is a slide of lead options that you can print off for students to refer to later in the year, when they are beginning a piece of writing. Students practice a little bit with classifying types of leads and I've also included a few leads from popular novels for discussion.
