Transitional Paragraphs for Understanding

posted: 3.21.07 by Barclay Barrios

Ask students to review the material in the handbook on clarity and transitions, and also ask them to come to class having identified a passage in the current reading that they found particularly confusing. In small groups, students should share their passages and then pick one to work on. The groups will then insert a paragraph before this passage that uses transitions and acts as a transition to help everyone else in the class understand the movement of the author’s argument in this place.
