Add dialogue to develop a character

In this lesson, students practice revising a draft about adopting a cat with a focus on adding dialogue to develop characters. 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.
