Connect ideas in informational writing

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about invasive species with a focus on using transitions to connect ideas across and within paragraphs. 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.
