Cause and Effect Essay
Write a 500-750 word essay using cause and effect as a method of development. Please do NOT use sources for this essay. Choose a topic you know enough about without having to look for information because we do not cover proper research methods and documentation until the next lesson, and it must be done correctly. Make sure your thesis is complete as you have done with the prior essays.
Determine exactly what point you are going to make and write it down in precise terms. Remember, you are going to be writing about the causes that lead up to a specific event or situation. Think about why you want to make this point. Develop a thesis statement. Then choose examples and details that count for something, those that move the reader toward some goal. Your details about the events that take place should ultimately lead up to the effect or the end result.
