Write an academic essay where you show a clear relationship between cause and effect, with a topic chosen from your major field of study, your work life, or your personal life. Here are some examples of topics from your textbook and from successful student papers:
Causes of symptoms or conditions (medicine and health—autism, ADHD, cancer, sports-medicine related
injuries and treatment)
Causes of student success or failure, effects of teaching methods or tools (online learning, adult learners, returning students, homeschooling)
Causes of business growth and failure, marketing, business trends
Causes and effects of climate change, ecological change, scientific phenomena
(adapted from Russell 196)
You may have other ideas and are not sure how to use them in a cause and effect essay, so feel free to ask and have a topic approved or get ideas as to how to shape your topic into a cause and effect framework.
