Explain how the evidence supports reasons and proves claim

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about respecting wild animals with a focus on explaining how their evidence supports their reasons and therefore proves their claim. 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.
