Use infinitive phrases to answer "what?" and "why?"

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about how to make a quesadilla with a focus on using infinitive phrases to answer the questions "What?" and "Why?" 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.
