Revise an introduction to clearly introduce a claim

In this lesson, students practice revising an introduction of an argument supporting space exploration, with a focus on introducing reasons to support the claim and acknowledging opposing claims. A video models the thought process writers use to apply the targeted skill and improve their draft. The video prompts students to pause periodically and interact with the items on the Student Practice Sheet.
