Essay Writing : Cause and Effect
What is a Cause and Effect Essay?
THESIS:
Cause and effect essays help a reader examine the reasons of a situation or event that occurs and the outcomes that are involved as a result.

The basis of cause and effect writing is to show that certain actions cause certain results or effects.
You can approach the topic two different ways. You can set out to prove that certain known causes will have a certain effect. Or you can approach it from the other direction, setting out to prove that a particular effect was due to certain causes.

Ex. Cause
- Why do people over eat?
Ex. Effect
- What happens as a result of overeating?
Cause and Effect REMINDERS

An effect is the result of something that happened.
