In this lesson, students practice adding transition words and phrase to signal when a shift in time or place occurs in the story. The students practice identifying when these shifts occur, and then adding appropriate transitions to clarify the shifts. A video models the thought process writers use to apply the targeted skill and improve their draft. The video prompts students to pause periodically and interact with the items on the Student Practice Sheet.
