ENC101: Lecture 14 – Transitions Transitions Example of unclear transition: The characters in Book A face a moral dilemma. In the same way, the characters in Book B face a similar problem. “Today, an increasing number of males are concerned about physical appearance. Young females have experienced a great degree of psychological and even physical stress from body-image pressures present in modern society (Mavro 312). According to scholar Lynn Luciano, the greater economic power people have nowadays has caused a “significant expansion of the male body-image industry,” including grooming, magazines, fitness, and fashion products (26). It seems that when males enter the workforce, after high school or college, is when body image pressure is at its greatest.” How to make change: o Bad construction: Idea1. Idea2. Idea3. o Better: Idea1. Given that Idea 1, Idea 2. Given that Idea 2, Idea 3. o “Today, an increasing number of males are concerned about physical appearance. This concern is similar to what young females have experienced a great degree of psychological and even physical stress from body-image pressures present in modern society (Mavro 312). However, according to scholar Lynn Luciano, the greater economic power people have nowadays has caused a “significant expansion of the male body-image industry,” including grooming, magazines, fitness, and fashion products (26). Thus, because this pressure is connected to economic power, it seems that when males enter the workforce, after high school or college, is when body image pressure is at its greatest.” Techniques Transitions are words/phrases that help make your writing more coherent (between clauses, sentences or groups of sentences). Transitions function as sign posts in our writing and allow readers to build a mental map of your paper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
