Organization: Using Sequence Words
Revise this example:
I opened the package. I poured out the cake mix. I cracked open an egg. I added water. I mixed the ingredients together. I poured the mix into a pan. I baked the cake.
Use sequence words to show the order of your ideas. Add details if you wish.
- Have I used order words like first, next, then, and finally?
- Did I use a variety of transition words like however, because, also, and for instance?
- Have I shown how ideas connect from sentence to sentence?
- Does my organization make sense from paragraph to paragraph?
