Logically group ideas in argumentative writing

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about food waste with a focus on organizing ideas logically into 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.
