  1. CAUSE AND EFFECT By Helena Sánchez & Claudia Rodríguez

  2. What does cause & effect mean? • A cause is the reason something happens • An effect is the thing that happens as a result of a cause • Ex. Since I babysat during the summer I was able to buy a new bike. • How was she able to buy a new car? (effect) • She babysat during the summer. (cause)

  3. Cause & Effect Key Words • Hence • So • Since • In order to • Produced • Thus • As a result of • Consequently • As a consequence • Was responsible for • Led to • Due to

  4. Hint #1 • Look for key words that show cause/effect relationship. • Sometimes there will be a cause/effect relationship, and these words will not be used. • When you can´t find the key word, then the relationship is “implied”.

  5. Key words hint #1 • For this reason • In response to • Resulted in • Therefore • Word “cause” • Word “effect”

  6. Hint #2 • If possible try to replace the cause/effect relationship words so that you can use the word “because”. • The most important linking word is the word “because”. • If you can change our sentences around so their meaning doesn´t change and you can add “because” to the events, you can probably have the correct cause/effect answer.

  7. Adding Because Hint#2 • Ex. Alex didn`t study for his test. He knew that he had to pass the test. Alex wasn`t surprised when he failed the test. • Ales failed his test because he didn’t study. • Cause: He didn´t study • Effect: He failed the exam.

  8. Hint#3 • Ex. Ben was running late for school, but it was a beautiful morning, so he wanted to walk. Ben saw his neighbor chasing his wild, little puppy. Ben knew he had to help. • Why was Ben late? (effect) • 1st Cause: He walked to school. • 2nd Cause: He helped his neighbor. • Both of these are events/causes

  9. Hint#4 • Sometimes cause/effect linking words are “understood”. • This happens when writers leave out key words that define a cause/effect relationship. • Sometimes cause/effect relationships are only “implied” and must be inferred by the reader (look for details and use logical reasoning or common sense).

  10. Hint#4 • Ex. Kate got up early enough to get ready for school, but she knew she didn`t do her English homework. She dreaded going because her teacher would be very disappointed. • Why would Kate not go to school) • It is implied that she would not go to school (effect) since she didn`t turn in her English homework.

  11. Hint#5 • Avoiding Post Hoc Reasoning: • Do not assume that just because even A precedes event B, event A caused even B. This illogical assumption is called post hoc reasoning. This error leads you to confuse coincidence with causality. • Do not confuse words like because, therefore and consequently(indicating a causal relationship), with words like subsequently, later, and afterward (chronological relationship words)
