Change indirect to direct speech in a narrative

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about narrative writing with a focus on changing indirect speech into direct speech. 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.
