Cause and Effect Essay Outline/Writing: What motivates the author to write? Select any of the authors whose work was read in class to base your analysis(You can choose your related topic).
– Keep in mind
Choose an event or condition that you think has an interesting cause and effect relationship. Introduce your topic in an engaging way. End your introduction with a thesis that states the main cause, the main effect, or both. Organize your essay by starting with either the cause-then-effect structure or the effect-then-cause structure. Within each section, you should clearly explain and support the causes and effects using a full range of evidence. If you are writing about multiple causes or multiple effects, you may choose to sequence either in terms of order of importance. In other words, order the causes from least to most important (or vice versa), or order the effects from least important to most important (or vice versa).Use the phrases of causation when trying to forge connections between various events or conditions. This will help organize your ideas and orient the reader. End your essay by drawing a conclusion based on the information presented. You may find it helpful to think of the conclusion as an answer to the question: “so what” or as a continuation of the statement “and so. . . “. In some cases, may be appropriate to issue a call to action in your essay’s conclusion.
Using the Cause Effect Extended Draft Outline Template that you completed for last week’s assignment, you are now ready to compose the full and final cause and effect essay. Be sure to read this week’s lesson and Chapter 9 in your text for information about developing your body paragraphs and revising your introduction and conclusion.
Successful assignments will do the following:
Focus on either one effect that emerges from multiple causes or one cause and multiple effects that arise from it.
Follow a clear pattern of either explaining the single cause or the single effect, with your body paragraphs, then, including an expansion on (with descriptions, examples, and logic) the several causes or the several effects.
Include a thesis statement at the end of the introduction that conveys the overall goal of the cause/effect relationship and provides relevance for your reader.
Include details to establish the ways in which your causes and effects and powerfully related.
One of the most common difficulties students experience while writing a paper is organization. After you have generated some ideas for your essay, you will want to create an outline. Use this information to create an outline for each of your essays before you write your initial draft. Remember that outlines are subject to change as the ideas in your essays evolve. Simply use the outline as a way to get you started.
Outlines will vary depending on the exact goal of the piece, but every outline should contain the following elements:
A. Interest-catcher that relates to your thesis
B. Sentence that connects your interest-catcher to your thesis
C. Your thesis, which identifies the topic and reveals the central claim you are making about the issue
D. Overview of your main points (optional)
A. Topic sentence introducing the focus of the paragraph in some clear way
B. Specific example(s), facts(s), etc. that support your point. Use properly cited quotes, paraphrases, or summaries.
C. Your explanation and analysis of example(s) (Avoid 1st and 2nd person pronoun usage)
D. Summative sentence
E. Remember to provide transitions for your reader.
III. Body Paragraph(s) Discussing Opposition
(This could also be addressed before your supporting points. There are
other possibilities for organization, but it takes great care to make the flow of thoughts understandable to the reader, so we will just start with these.)
A. Topic sentence identifying opposing viewpoint
B. Explanation as to why you disagree (Avoid 1st and 2nd person pronoun usage)
C. Examples, facts, etc. that support your reason for disagreement
D. Summative sentence
E. Remember transitions into the next paragraph.
A. Sums up what you talked about in your body paragraphs
B. Reiterates your thesis in different words
C. Drives home any final thoughts or call for action
Remember that this is just a rough guide, not a strict formula.
