Linking paragraphs

This scaffold shows how you can begin paragraphs by using connecting words. The

    connectors or conjunctions are used to signal first a positive point of view then, in the

    following paragraph, an opposing point of view. You do not always have to put the link

    words at the beginning of the paragraph.

    You could find these linking words useful in your writing.

To compare: for example, therefore, consequently, also, because, since.

    To contrast: for example, on the other hand, although, yet, however, but.
