Transitional Device

A. Subject Name: English

B. Lesson Reference No: 4

C. Lesson Title: Transitional Words or Phrases

D. Lesson Description:
Transitional devices are like bridges between parts of your paper. They help you easily interpret ideas and carry over a thought from one sentence to another, from one idea to another, or from one paragraph to another with words or phrases.

E. Learning Outcome:

At the end of the lesson you are expected to:
  • enumerate the different transitional devices used to add, compare, etc.
  • identify the appropriate transitional device to be used in given sentences or paragraphs.
  • write a paragraph using transitional devices.

F. Learning Presentation:

Learning Object 1 - The word "transition" means passing over. Thus transitional guides are connectives (symbols,words, phrases; sometimes whole sentences and paragraphs) that make possible a smooth "passing over" from one idea to the next.

Learning Object 2 - There are several transitional words or phrases, and each category leads you to make certain connections or assumptions about the two areas that you are connecting. Some lead you forward and imply the "building" of an idea or thought, while others make you compare ideas or draw conclusions from the preceding thoughts.

G. Learning Activity:

Activity 1 - Try to identify the transitional devices used in this exercise.
Activity 2 - Click the transition words below for more practice activities.

H. Learning Evaluation:

Check your skills through this test.

I. Assignment:

Write a paragraph (with 8-12 sentences) about your visit to a new place. Use transitional devices correctly. Post it in my forum.
