Cause & Effect
What is Cause & Effect - Part I
We are going to look at an essay format called Cause & Effect. It is a format many people use because it allows you to show relationships between an action and what caused the action.
Since you have the writing process down, moving to the more complex format of cause & effect will not be too hard. There are a few more things to remember than other paragraph types, but it's nothing you can't handle!
1. Make a copy of the printable. The printable talks about cause & effect as a paragraph type, but you will use it as an essay format. The information is the same.
2. The video will explain the concept. It is very important to read the printable after you watch the video. This is how you will remember new, unfamiliar things about cause & effect.
3. When you think you understand the basics of cause & effect, go on to the next lesson. The printable you have for this lesson will be used for the next lesson as well.
