Preview an essay in the introduction

In this lesson, students practice writing an introduction that previews the essay in a draft about lions with a focus on using main ideas from the body 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.
