Text level connectives - cohesion

Text level connectives - cohesion

A powerpoint presentation, covers the main types of connectives (based on Literacy / KS3 framework documents), and then works through a very abbreviated version of Chaucer’s “Steward’s Tale” to exemplify a variety of connectives as paragraph openers. Gives opportunities for children to identify connective type, and discuss how these can be used to aid cohesion within a text.
