Planning Your Cause-and-Effect Essay

1. Think about the relationship between events. Are they really linked by cause and effect? Just because one event follows another in time doesn’t necessarily mean that the first event caused the second.

2. Explore causes and effects. Does a single cause have one effect or many? Is an effect the result of multiple causes or only one? Is there a causal chain in which a cause produces an effect, which becomes the cause of another effect, and so on?

3. Identify your audience. What do they already know about the events you’re describing? What background information or explanation of terms will you need to include in your essay?

4. Gather supporting information. What details will support your analysis of causes and effects? What sources of information can you draw on—observation, research, or your own imagination and reflection?
