LOVE this strategy and am so glad you shared it with the English Department! In my classroom, when students were writing more academic pieces, it really helped them to have the Good Beginnings sheet to look at a mental spring board to help get writing. Many of our students still struggle with what to do when they are staring at a blank page - dedicating time to discussing in class what, exactly, makes a good beginning and having a friendly reference sheet available really helped our writing flow throughout the year. Your strategies really were such integral parts of our Junior English PLC - thanks for the collaboration!
