WHAT IT IS:

From The Writing Revolution, Because-but-so is a sentence stem strategy for supporting written responses to specific questions or topics. 

HOW IT WORKS:

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.

Example starters:

  • We learned about animal habitats…
  • 7 is the correct answer…
  • Breaking down lipids for energy produces water…
