When you write a cause-and-effect essay, you can use a variety of organizational structures to help the reader understand your information. They include:
- block format (to group causes and/or effects together)
- chain format (to show how the effect of one action can be the cause of the next action, and so on)
You can also use more complex vocabulary and grammar, such as adverb clauses and the passive voice, to make your writing more concise, precise, and academic.
Composition strategies, such as strong conclusions with predictions or implications, help your readers recognize the consequences of the ideas you share.
Finally, as you already know, writing is a process that requires many steps and revisions. Remember: “Good writing is rewriting.”
