summary JUSTIFIC LUCCA THE DOG By Keith Gay Read the examples of the six different leads that you can use to begin your own narrative Good writers brainstorm many kinds of leads to determine which style works best for their story Circle examples of strong vocabulary in the examples below and write WHY the stronger one is a better lead on the lines below ATION Name Dialogue This lead begins with dialogue Date Lucca a lovable Golden Retriever lived with his family on Brooks Court in Oakland STATION FIVE California Lucca was moderately well behaved He sat and rolled over on command and he would JUSTIFICATION The HEART of Your Essay even reach out for a handshake with a friendly passerby on the street during his daily walks However there was one area where Lucca was definitely NOT well behaved Recently Lucca had developed the troublesome habit of barking loudly whenever someone would approach the front door of the family home Lucca would bark so noisily that it would wake the family s newborn baby It didn t matter if it was the mail person Lucca had seen delivering mail every Tuesday afternoon for the last two years or a complete stranger Lucca s deafening barks were out of control whenever anyone Boring Last summer I went to Washington D C for vacation Student Directions Justification is the heart of the EB Writing Approach It is the section of your Response to Literature where you thoughtfully analyze how why the evidence you chose supports both the premise and the claim Stronger Please fasten your seatbelts and ensure your chair is in the upright position the flight attendant s voice bellowed over the intercom We are now beginning our descent into Washington D C I strained my neck toward the window hoping to get a glimpse of the White House as we landed Little did I know at that time that this would be the best vacation of my life This is key to writing strong justification Sentence 1 Clearly explain how your evidence supports the premise Sound Effect Sentence 2 Clearly explain how your evidence supports the claim This lead immediately draws the reader into the story by starting with an onomatopoeia stepped foot on the front steps In all fairness to Lucca the barking had begun only after the baby had In this activity you will be provided with a claim premise and a piece of evidence Your task is to write justification for why that evidence supports both the premise and the claim Boring Last night there was a storm arrived home from the hospital and it truly did seem as if Lucca was merely protecting the baby One An example has been provided for you Stronger Woooooosh The powerful and ominous wind came roaring through my open bedroom window ferociously knocking over the glass lamp on my nightstand day Luca s family decided that enough was enough and they enrolled Lucca in obedience school MPLE TEACHER EXA After 5 weeks of intense training Lucca graduated from The Canine Manners Academy and peace once again returned to

the kitchen counter and raced toward my mom who was patiently waiting with my backpack at the front door It was 7 30 am and I didn t want to be late on my first day of Junior High Justification This evidence demonstrates that Andrew is not only a person who is willing to help others but also who sees the best in people and wants them to succeed The fact that Andrew wants the best for Alexis
