Learning Objective:
Today I will
identify and use transitions and
conjunctions to connect ideas..
•Transition=change, move into or over
•Conjunction= to merge, connect with
What are we going to identify and
use today?
Transitions and conjunctions to
connect ideas.
I worked on this PointPoint.
I at my lunch.
How do we connect
both sentences?
We connect sentences by using conjunctions!
I worked on this PowerPoint,
while I at my lunch.
It is important to know how to correctly use
transitions and conjunctions to connect
ideas because it will help you write better
sentences!
It is also important because it can help you identify
transitions and conjunctions to connect ideas
because It will help you identify if any sentences are
written incorrectly.
What are other reasons it is important to
correctly use independent and dependent clauses?
It will be tested!

Transitions
Transitions are words that help make
your writing more coherent. They create
connections between:
- one clause and another clause
- one sentence and another sentence
- one group of sentences and the next group of
sentences
Joining Two Independent Clauses
One way of joining two independent clauses is with a
semicolon, a transition, and a comma.
; furthermore,
Marcos is a great
swimmer
he’s very good at scuba
diving.
Marcos is a great swimmer ;furthermore, he’s very good at scuba
diving.
Connecting Two Sentences
You can use a transition and comma to tell the reader the
logical relationship between two sentences.
In fact,
Marcos is very athletic.
he plays three sports at
school.
Marcos is very athletic. In fact, he plays three sports at school.
Placement of Transition
Rather than placing the transition at the beginning of the
second sentence, you may place it in the middle of the
second sentence after the subject with two commas.
Marcos is very athletic.
transition
He, in fact, plays three sports at school.
subject
Transitions in Longer Writing
When writing a paragraph or a larger piece of
writing,you can use a transition to show the reader
the logical relationship between one group of
sentences and another group of sentences.
This is useful when you want to let the reader
know that you are changing from one idea to
another idea.
Example- Longer Piece of Writing
Transition
connects ideas
in paragraph 2
to ideas in
paragraph 1.
