A cause-and-effect essay (or causal analysis) fully explains the
causes or effects that are the focus of the essays thesis and presents them in a logical order.
For your cause-and-effect essay, you will write a research paper using the cause-and-effect pattern of development. Use in text citations
You may write in first-person or third-person point of view. You’re
writing for an audience unfamiliar with your topic, so your goal is to use language your readers are familiar with and can relate to; be sure to define any technical terms you use.
