Use linking words and phrases to connect reasons to your claim

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about the use of drones with a focus on using linking words and phrases to connect their reasons to 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.
