6-4 Paper 2: Cause and Effect Essay First Draft "A very small cause, which escapes our notice, determines a considerable effect that we cannot fail to see, and then we say that the effect is due to chance." ~ Henri Poincare, mathematician, theoretical physicist, engineer, and a philosopher of science. Although Mr. Poincare may be regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians who has ever lived, we will not be following his lead in our forthcoming essays by declaring that an "effect is due to chance." Rather finding sound evidence to answer the whys and what ifs regarding your topic will be absolutely necessary to the success of Paper #2: Cause and Effect Essay. As we have discussed in recent lessons, a cause and effect essay tells how one occurrence (the cause) leads to other occurrences (the effects), OR it tells how multiple causes lead to one effect. To clarify, a cause and effect essay can do one of two things: 1. It can analyze the ways in which one or more effects result from a particular cause. 2. It can analyze the ways in which one or more causes lead to a particular effect. In essence, a cause and effect essay explores a relationship between entities. As you plan your paper, be vigilant with regard to maintaining a clear focus; exploring two many causes as well as too many effects in one paper can blur the purpose of your writing and confuse the reader. In addition, remember to avoid false logic. For example, many people lament that as soon as they run their cars through a car wash, it begins to rain. Obviously, this is an error in logic; washing one's car does not cause rain. Oversimplification can also be problematic. Most important matters have more than one cause. Likewise, most weighty occurrences have more than one effect. For example, a paper exploring the causes of poor nutrition would analyze several causal factors. Or, a paper examining the many effects of technology on education would discuss multiple effects. ______________________________________________________________________ __________________ Objectives Students will: ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ Apply elements of Cause & Effect Analysis Differentiate between causes and effects Identify the purpose of a cause & effect essay Avoid oversimplification and errors in logic Incorporate the appropriate tone based on topic and audience of an essay Develop and organize supporting points to prove a thesis. Think critically about a topic and explore ideas in writing. Construct an appropriate, substantive thesis. Use transitions effectively to enhance the sequencing of examples ______________________________________________________________________ __________________ Instructions 1. In Paper 2, you will utilize all of the elements of a cause and effect essay covered in our course material and develop a paper that teaches the reader something about the causes and effects of your topic. Your topic will focus on a problem or issue but should NOT be a topic that requires "major" research. Remember that when using sources other than your own ideas, you must attribute those sources. See "Sentence Starters" f or help in integrating the words and ideas of others. Possible Topics: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Choose from #1 or #3 described on 489 of Subject & Strategy, or: Effects of Pollution The Changes in the Ocean The Civil Rights Movement and the Effects Causes and Effects of the Popularity of Fast Food Restaurants Internet Influence on kids Popularity of Sports in US Effects of professional sport on children Growing up with a single parent Effect of school bullying on children Putin politics against the neighboring countries Music effects on human body Dating at a young age What causes some women to repeatedly get involved in destructive relationships Earthquakes and potential dangers they bring Social media effect on young people Growing up in poverty • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Stress impact on health Impact of drug use on human body The influence of my favorite movie/book on me How war in Syria effects US What impact smoking has on a pregnant woman Telling lies.

A certain law that personally affects your life or your family's lives A disease or disability you have A bad habit you have A major decision you made Succeeding in something; A change you made; An obstacle you overcame; How does online shopping cause people to spend more money? What are the effects of divorce on children? What are the effects of owning a pet on one’s health? What are the effects of growing up in a single-parent household? What are the effects of grandparents raising a child? 2. Establish your focus: You do not want to simply summarize, report on, or describe your topic. You want to focus on examining the causes and/or effects of your topic. Refer back to the previous lesson in which the structure of a Cause & Effect Analysis was outlined. As noted above, your supporting points should derive primarily from your personal experiences and observations. You want to contribute to a discussion about your topic with your unique supporting points. 3. Determine your purpose: Will your essay be informative, speculative, or argumentative (see page 450 in Subject & Strategy if you need clarification)? 4. Formulate a thesis: Your thesis, the main point of the paper, will be directly influenced by the focus you choose. Your thesis statement should clearly present a cause and its effects, an effect and its causes, or a complex causal chain of events. Thesis example: The recent trend toward longer school days is having negative effects on student learning. 5. Remember that each cause or effect should be supported by an exploration of reasons and evidence. 6. How to begin and end: One possibility for an introduction is to offer a personal story that shows what you are writing about so that the reader will clearly see the paper’s topic. For example, if you are examining ADD medication, you will start by telling a story that explains your personal connection (if and when you took the medication). Your conclusion will end with a prediction or a final commentary. For example, after you examined the causes and effects of ADD medication, what is your final opinion about kids taking the medication? If you examine the causes and effects of “the problems with teens today,” do you think the problems will ever get resolved? If so, how? Or do you think is issue is something that will stay the same or get worse? Again, explain your answer. Also, refer back to Lessons 4-1 and 4-3 for a review of strategies for introductions and conclusions. 5. Submit your completed Word document to this assignment. Paper 2 should follow MLA conventions, including heading, page numbering, and MLA parenthetical citations where necessary.
