Transcript of Chronological Order

In this lesson, you'll discover that some authors write about things in the order in which they happened.
Chronological Order
What does Chronological Mean?
It helps to know that the Greek root chron means “
time
” and logical means “
valid or true
.”
So chronological means “
in true time order
” or sequence.
We do everything in sequence, one step at a time.
First
, you wear your clothes, then you wash them, dry them, fold them or hang them up, and put them away.
Authors often use words like first, second, next, last, before, after, then, now, later, or finally as signals that the events in a story are being told in a
sequence
.
Example 1
Before
the concert, we were excited because we had awesome front row seats.
Then
the show began, and for awhile, it was great. But soon I couldn’t even hear the music over the screams of the audience!
After
the concert, when we could hear again, we had pizza and listened to some quiet rock!
Remember!
Sometimes the author doesn’t use
signal
words, and readers must figure out the sequence from details in the text.
Example 2
I’m so glad to be home now, where it’s quiet!
Yesterday
I went to a concert and it was unbelievable…not in a good way. The music and the crowd were so-o-o loud! At the
beginning
, I thought I was lucky because I got front row seats. Boy was I wrong!
Example 2 Explained
The sequence of getting front row seats for a concert, suffering through the loudness of music and concertgoers, and coming home are the same, but they aren’t spelled out in
step-by-step
order.
Final Notes!
The ability to recognize chronological order can help you
understand
what you read. A sequence chain can help you organize the events in a selection and help you remember what you read.

Get front row seats go to concert
Music and crowd loud go home to quiet


Besides using
time
order, an author may sequence things by ranking them in order of importance, speed, size, age, and so on.
