This is a 70-80 minute lesson plan to help young writers develop an interesting and effective “hook” to their writing. Students can find hooks in most fiction and non-fiction texts. They can apply this strategy to most of their writing: narratives, reports, response to literature, response to informational texts, poetry, persuasive texts, and essays.
This lesson plan includes:
A lesson plan utilizing the 5Es
A description of the 5 basic hooks
A list of modification and alternative application ideas
A student reference sheet to keep in their writing journals
A student chart, for collecting hook examples on
A worksheet for practice or assessment
Examples of student work
I use this lesson every year with my students--I've used in grades 3, 4, 5 and have shared with teachers in grades 2-6
