  • Distinguish between cause and effect. To determine causes, ask, "Why did this happen?" To identify effects, ask, "What happened because of this?"
  • Develop your thesis statement. State clearly whether you are discussing causes, effects, or both. Introduce your main idea, using the terms "cause" and/or "effect."

Find and organize supporting details. Back up your thesis with relevant and sufficient details that are organized. You can organize details in the following ways:

    • Chronological. Details are arranged in the order in which the events occurred.
    • Order of importance. Details are arranged from least to most important or vice versa.
    • Categorical. Details are arranged by dividing the topic into parts or categories.
  • Use appropriate transitions.
