Choose strongest reasons to support your point of view

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about opinion writing with a focus on ensuring that they use strong reasons to support their point of view. 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.
