JA's classroom is a website where the students I teach can find the resources they need. This is the place to come for any lost worksheets, PowerPoint presentations that you can only half-remember, audio files to listen to again, and the prep instructions you forgot to write down! It’s also the place to look for links and lesson plans if I am unable to take a class or when you have been absent from school and need to find out what you missed. It also includes extension and revision materials, as well as other general information about Language, Languages, and Language Learning. Colleagues and pupils from other classes are welcome to use these resources too.

Key Connectors – TIME

Here some key connectors that you should use in your own writing. I have based my examples when writing about the text “An Inspector Calls”.

  1. Until – Everyone was happy until the Inspector arrived.
  2. Afterwards – Sheila was happy at the start, but afterwards she felt guilty.
  3. Meanwhile – Eva was living in poverty; meanwhile the Birlings were very comfortable.
  4. Straightaway – Gerald understood straightaway when the Inspector showed him the photo.
  5. Later – The young people understand their responsibility later in the play.
  6. Before – The play is set before the First World War.
  7. Now – Looking back now we can see that Birling is arrogant and wrong.
  8. By the time – By the time the Inspector leaves, everyone is in a state of shock.
  9. Since – Since Eva lost her job, her life has been miserable.
  10. During – The play was written during a time of great social change.
  11. Next time – The next time the audience sees Eric, he drinks even more.
  12. Earlier – Earlier in the play Sheila seemed to be very immature and silly.
  13. Whenever – It is always very tense whenever the Inspector is on stage.
