Often a cause creates an effect, which causes another situation. That is why I usually like to call this a "speculating about causes" essay, because we can't always definitively determine the absolute cause, but we can always speculate and argue for the most important causes, or the most important effects that we see in a situation.
Okay so cause and effect essays are written in different formats, but let me say in my college profession for the essays to be written were to be in APA format, and it is interesting when researching and writing whether it is from information you have researched or if it free lance.
It can encourage students to believe that they are capable, but it can discourage them by making them think that they don't need to work hard, or that if they don't achieve a high grade on everything, they have failed.
Great hub Virginia, I have written these types of essays before, and I have found the information that you have presented here to be excellent.
The elocution or a speech competition is one of the most common competitions for school students.
It helps improve your child's speech, social and leadership skills when they have to stand up on that stage, and deliver a speech that makes the audience want to hear more.
I like to research topics before writing and also note taking is effective.
The cause is what causes the situation and the effect is what you have to take into consideration to the cause as we all know it. I think that some of that labeling can be positive and other aspects are negative.
Cause and effect essays trace the start of a situation to a discussion of its results. My students have come up with most of these topics through the years and now this is my most visited article so they must have done a good job! They are good to write about to do research and clear up one's own viewpoint, but they also get people talking, and also spark very needed discussion. Cause and effect papers are among the most interesting to read. Hi Gertrude--These two words are ones that are often confused. However, you are very right to point out that APA and Chicago and other formats are used in different types of courses.I voted this hub "up," "useful," and "interesting." I am bookmarking this hub for future reference. Affect also means "to produce an effect upon" as well as "to influence." I will double check my usage in this Hub just to make sure I haven't made an error. I think considering cause and effect is sometimes a bit confusing because it depends on where you view the start of the situation.
