Chronological, Sequential, and Consecutive Order
I have found that by teaching my students that they may order nonfiction texts in three different ways – chronological, sequential, and consecutive order – really helps their comprehension of the material. Here is how I cover the three ordering topics:
Chronological order usually refers to how things happen in order of time. The segments of time may go forward or backward. This pattern works well when telling a story. History is told in chronological order. Also explaining how something happens or works is chronological order. Chronological order may recount a series of events that happened over time. This structure is organized from one point in time to another.
