Transitions Placemat

“The Placemat” is educator Larry Weinstein’s transitions document, available through this link.  (Click the only image on the page once you’re in Weinstein’s site to get to the actual placemat.)

It’s a document that, due to its placemat-like size, is difficult to reproduce here.  If you save it and then open it with one of your computer’s paint or photo programs, you can rotate this and resave it.

Why do all this?  Well, it’s an amazing guide to the different moves writers make through transition work.  It has lists of transitions that work with rhetorical modes as well.
