This is a short workshop to introduce or re-introduce students to transition words as a writing tool.
The worksheet contains definitions, usage, and examples.
There is also a cloze (fill in the blanks) exercise for students to apply their knowledge immediately.
Students can keep the worksheet for use as a reference tool when writing.
***The presentation is saved as .ppt, and pptx AND pdf.***
1. Show Ss the presentation and elicit their ideas for the function of the transitions shown on screen (e.g. "comparing"). The function (heading) will fly in after prompting.
2. Repeat this for each function.
3. Have students fill in the blanks of their cloze exercise.
4. Reveal sample answers on screen, and discuss possible alternatives.
