FOCUS SKILL: SEQUENCE
Writers put events into a logical sequence, or order of events. Also, a strict sequence of events is more important in some selections than in others. Writers may include words and phrases that indicate time and order to help make the sequence of events clear. Examples of time and order words include first, next, then, later, and finally.
