Pg. 2: 15 questions, two are for students to make up their own sentences using transitions
Pg. 3: Key
This worksheet is not a simple multiple choice; students have to actually write out sentences on page one, and fill in the blanks on page two. I've used it for years to help students get an understanding of what a transition is. Although it is only two pages it made a real difference with my at-risk/low students.
Correct use of transitions is essential for the writing portion of state tests. How significantly it affects scores may not be obvious until one focuses on teaching transitions. Both the essay portion and the short answer sections of writing tests will show improved scores with better understanding and use of transitions.
