    3. 3. The following is a list of guidelines to follow while writing your hook: <ul><ul><li>The hook must be stated as a prompt for students to respond to prior to, during and at the closure of a unit of study </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The hook is open ended- no correct or incorrect answer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Question: When is war justifiable? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Statement: Communities provide protection. </li></ul></ul></ul>
