Create noun phrases using modifiers

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft with a focus on creating noun phrases by adding modifiers to existing nouns. 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.
