They Say/I Say Chapter 8

Key:

In my writing, I tend to use “and” much more than any other transition word. Another pattern I notice in my writing is that I repeat many of the key¬†terms over and over again throughout my paper. I rely on repetition more than other devices discussed in this section of reading. When talking about a topic I tend to explain my ideas in new ways rather than expanding the ideas further. Adding more unique transition words and limiting pointing terms would overall make my writing stronger and more clear.

Yellow- Transitions

Blue- Pointing Terms
