Cause and Effect Essays
In continuation of our topic on different types of essays (see “five paragraph essays”) we’ll dwell on cause and effect essays. As always, the meaning is hidden in the name of the type of essay, thus the writer must present the reason (the action or fact which caused something) and the result (the effect this action of fact had, influence or impact). To illustrate the above mentioned, we’ll give an example of topics of cause and effect essays: “The impact of hurricane Catherine on local economy”, “The influence of new legislation of educational system” etc.
The general advice is to start the research paper by giving the example of the situation, the fact, the event – anything which serves as a reason and has visible or even minor consequences will do. The writer must describe this fact or situation.
The next step is to illustrate the consequences, the results this situation has, the effects it causes. A rough list is good only for a graft. The essay must present the effect in details, with persuasive arguments. It’s also necessary to define the purpose of writing an essay: the style is different if you want to persuade someone in something or just present the information. If your objective is to convince of something, the effects (or results of given situation) must be described in details. Otherwise you may be brief.
