Chronology writing

What happened?

This structure follows time with a sense of the sequence of events, one following another. You relate or recount what happened. This may, naturally, often be used in history. Chronology can be expressed visually as a 'timeline' which shows the sequence of events during a certain period, as a calendar does. A similar structure may be used to tell the plot of a novel or film. There will often be occasions when you need to use this structure, but you will also need to do more than this and go on to think about and explore further what you have recounted. Chronology writing might well appear at the beginning of an assignment, to give the background to the rest of the piece. Beware of spending too long on chronology writing in any one assignment because the task usually demands more than this.
