Vary sentence lengths

In this lesson, students practice revising an argumentative draft about studying foreign language with a focus on varying sentence length and structure by using conjunctions to combine sentences. 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.
