Cause and effect helpful websites & articles
« on: October 01, 2008, 04:28:00 PM »
First, here are words from William Shakespere, which I thought is very beautifully written (it has its rhymes), and shows a logical relationship between cause and effect.
You could show your Ss to open up your discussion on cause and effect.

 ?Find out the cause of this effect,
Or rather say, the cause of this defect,
   For this effect defective comes by cause.?


Second, I found these websites very helpful organizing cause and effect essay unit.

And, the follwing website has a cute picture to distinguish "affect" and "effect", and nice explanation for ESL students.

Lastly, after the overview of CE essay, my class will discuss about the hot current issue in US these days, "financial crisis", in which we could find causes and effects (mainly domino effect). I found several articles to give Ss some background about this issue, and adapted a lot to Ss' level. Here are they.. :D
