I created this minilesson to go along with my Introduction Expert writing badge, which helps “gamify” and motivate students to write more. The Introduction Expert Badge encourages students to write introductions for their pieces. You could also use this product without the badges to teach about writing introductions. This lesson covers writing an introduction with a hook and a topic sentence and follows a gradual release approach.
This product includes projectable pages for the minilesson, practice activities to complete with a partner, and a page to introduce independent practice.
