Leads for a Most Embarrassing Moment Narrative

exploring leads in your writers notebook
before writing a draft

Student Writer Instructions:

In The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963, we read about Byron's embarrassing moment when he kisses a frozen mirror.

After studying different ways of writing leads, you will plan to write your own story about a personal embarrassing moment.

There are lots of things that embarrass us in life. Some are huge. Some are more minor. Even though this lesson is called "Most Embarrassing Moment," you can write about a more minor embarrassment, as long as you tell the story well.

A good story follows a great introduction. A good story uses lots of memorable and interesting details.
