This lesson works well with developing writers to help them learn to incorporate transition words into their writing. Students begin by manipulating sentence strips to illustrate how changing the transition words in a piece of text changes the overall meaning. Then they complete a chart that helps them to understand that there are a variety of transition words, and they are used for specific purposes and to signal different relationships between ideas. This material was remixed based on Transition Words and Phrases by DPI Writing Strategies. The remixed lesson was created to be used with adult learners.
