Use participial phrases to add detail

In this lesson, students practice revising a narrative draft about fishing with a focus on adding participial phrases to give more detail about their nouns. 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.
