Use description to develop a story

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about adopting a cat with a focus on adding description to develop the story. 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.
