Writing an Effective Lead....
Transcript of Writing an Effective Lead....
Challenging Statement A quote by the person you are writing about gets the reader interested right away in that person. Example of a quotation lead: "It is better to be alone than in bad company," George Washington once said. He was not only our first president, but a wise man as well... An action immediately draws the reader into the excitement of that person's life... Action lead example: Click! Clack! Click! Went the keyboard as Bill Gates typed furiously... A question gets the reader to read on, hoping for an answer... Question lead example: Did Henry Ford REALLY invent the first car? Starting with a historical arguement gets the reader to think deeply about that person... Challenging Statement Lead Example: Chistopher Columbus was not the hero many people think he was... A Few Last Things About Leads... They are usually only one sentence long... How do you know a lead is good? Have someone read it and tell you what they think. Try writing all 4 types of leads for your report. Then choose the best one.... (Yes, it's that important!)
