From The Writing Revolution, Because-but-so is a sentence stem strategy for supporting written responses to specific questions or topics.
The teacher provides students with sentence starters as well as the instruction to use one of three conjunctions to substantiate the sentence starters. Students may choose any of the three conjunctions because, but, or so, to add additional details or ideas to the sentence.
