Get with your partner(s) and quickly decide: Which is the best lede from your assignment from last night?
The worst ledes are...
The best ledes are...
For next time
Critique each other’s profile’s ledes and nut grafs along the following lines:
What kind of lede is it?
Does it highlight the main character in the story?
