Introduce a claim, not an opinion

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about school breakfasts with a focus on introducing a strong, relevant claim instead of an opinion. 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.
