Establish and maintain a consistent, neutral tone

In this lesson, students practice revising an informational draft about Earth Day with a focus on maintaining a consistent, neutral tone. 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.
