A PowerPoint presentation; covers the main types of connectives / transitions; and then works through a very abbreviated version of Chaucer’s “Steward’s Tale” to exemplify a variety of connectives / transitions as paragraph openers. Gives opportunities for students to identify connective / transition type; and discuss how these can be used to aid cohesion within a text.

I would not use this source. It may be sensitive for younger students since it talks about a woman having an affair...

Wow! This really gives children the opportunity to understand the impact of connectives on their writing especially in how to start their paragraphs.

Thank you for the resource. Although I didn't use the resource as it was too young for my adult learners the information it contained helped me create one that was suitable. Thanks once again and I will keep the PP for use at a later date when teaching

They will - correctly - point out that some of the 'wrong' answers in this game not only make sense, but enhance the meaning of the tale in an interesting way. You can still use it with more able groups, but more as a discussion opener.
