Establish a situation at the beginning of the story

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about narrative writing with a focus on establishing a situation at the beginning of a story. 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.
