Add structure to a narrative by thinking about beginning, middle, and end

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about writing narratives with a focus on the beginning, middle and end narrative sequence. 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.
