Nonfiction authors often use a text structure known as SEQUENCE to organize their information. Events are presented in chronological order, or the order in which they happened. To describe the relationships between events in a sequence, authors may include words and phrases such as first, then, and years ago. Sometimes authors skip over certain events in order to keep the story moving. In these instances, readers can use text clues to make INFERENCES, or to figure out what has happened on their own. In "Double Dutch," the author uses a sequence of events to tell the story of the Snazzy Steppers. The arrangements of the events in time order helps readers understand how the events are connected.
