cause and effect writing
Cause and effect writing is a type of analysis and you can concentrate on either causes or effects in your thinking and writing. you should remember that a cause answers the question, Why? and an effect answers the question, What? We can also consifer that cause and effect shows the relationship between two things when one thing makes the other thing happen. If you can put the two things into a sentence using "if.... then...", then you have the requirements for cause and effect. Let's see the following example:
If you throw a ball up, then it will fall back down.
In this case, throwing the ball up is the cause for it to fall down.
When we write cause and effect statements, we use words and phrases that are called connectors of result. They are "so," "therefore," "consequently," "as a result," and "for this (these) reason(s)." Let's see some examples as follows:
1. She saved her money for many years, so now she can buy a good computer.
2. Tom studied politics; therefore, he became a lawyer.
Cause and effect writing usually asks why , and then answers it. Remember to include both the question and the answer in your essay.
There are two main ways to organize cause and effect compositions. One way is the group approach. In this way, you talk first about all the causes together as a group, then you talk about all the effects as a group. The other way to organize cause and effect writing is the alternating chain approach. In this way, you first discuss a cause and its effect. Then you discuss another cause and its effect, and so on.
The preparatory stage of writing cause and effect essay suggests your determining causes and effects. There may be too many causes for you to cover in your essay and you are to choose the main for presenting them in the scope of your writing. You should explain the reader that there are some other minor reasons not covered in your essay.
It is important to decide whether you are writing to inform or to persuade the reader and accordingly choose your writing style.
You should concentrate only on the most recent and direct causes (effects). Using supporting information will strengthen your essay. Feel free to provide the reader with facts, give examples. You may finish your cause and effect essay with a call for action.
