Support claims using specific, relevant evidence

In this lesson, students practice supporting the claim of an argument supporting space exploration by using specific, relevant evidence from credible sources. The students practice taking important evidence to support a claim from credible written sources. 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.
