This Lesson Plan 10: Beginnings lesson plan also includes:
Lead young learners through the process of crafting a beginning for a novel. After an illustrated explanation of the four classic beginnings (at the beginning, at the inciting incident, en media res, or at the end) class members are divided into four groups and each group is charged with developing one type of beginning. Groups share their efforts and then writers draft four possible beginnings for their own novel. A beginnings worksheet is referenced but not included.
