The flip book could be used to "try out" different types of introductory hooks for a particular piece of writing. The titles on the flaps would show the strategy that is being used with each hook

I love this lesson. Can you please tell me what titles you would give to the various pages of the flip book?

This sounds like a great lesson. The Hook Hunt worksheet that is mentioned within the lesson is not responding. Is there any way to get a copy of this worksheet to see if it is important to the lesson? Thank you
