Edit writing by using "its" and "it's" correctly

In this lesson, students practice editing a draft about homophones with a focus on spelling "its" and "it's" correctly. 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.
