Drafting Body Paragraphs

That's just the style. Learners begin with a mini-lesson about formal writing style. They then use what they learned about formal writing to begin the body paragraphs for their End of Unit 1 Assessment Prompt: Adversity in the Middle Ages. To conclude the lesson, scholars share one of their paragraphs with partners.
