Introduce a topic and clearly establish a purpose

In this lesson, students practice writing an introduction that gives some information about the topic and makes the purpose clear. 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.
