Scholastic Scholars - Unit 4 / Week 3
Sequencing is the order in which relationships among ideas happen in a text. Sequence can also mean the steps people follow to do something.
You can identify explicit sequence relationships because clue words such as first, then, next, after, and last tell you the order of the events.
If the sequence is implicit, there may not be any clues words. You will have to figure out the order of the events on your own.
Words such as while, meanwhile, and during can show when events happen at the same time.
