    Hi Gertrude--These two words are ones that are often confused. Affect also means "to produce an effect upon" as well as "to influence." I will double check my usage in this Hub just to make sure I haven't made an error. Thanks!

  • Gertrude McFuzz 3 years ago

    These are great topics. I just have one comment. Sometimes you use "effect" when you should use "affect."

    affect = influence - usually a verb

    effect= result - usually a noun

    effect= cause - not used that often - verb

    Sumnerswett--I teach MLA format because that is used by most American colleges in their English departments. However, you are very right to point out that APA and Chicago and other formats are used in different types of courses. I think considering cause and effect is sometimes a bit confusing because it depends on where you view the start of the situation. Often a cause creates an effect, which causes another situation. Sometimes it is hard to pull them apart. That is why I usually like to call this a "speculating about causes" essay, because we can't always definitively determine the absolute cause, but we can always speculate and argue for the most important causes, or the most important effects that we see in a situation.

  • Sumner Swett 4 years agofrom Owls Head Maine

    Okay so cause and effect essays are written in different formats, but let me say in my college profession for the essays to be written were to be in APA format, and it is interesting when researching and writing whether it is from information you have researched or if it free lance. I like to research topics before writing and also note taking is effective. The cause is what causes the situation and the effect is what you have to take into consideration to the cause as we all know it.

  • Kimberly Lake 4 years agofrom California

    Great topics! Voted up and shared.

  • Virginia Kearney 4 years agofrom United States

    Leidy--That is a great essay topic. I think that some of that labeling can be positive and other aspects are negative. It can encourage students to believe that they are capable, but it can discourage them by making them think that they don't need to work hard, or that if they don't achieve a high grade on everything, they have failed.

  • Seth Tomko 4 years agofrom Macon, GA

    A good and diverse collection of topics. I'll be sure to have my students check out some of these for their own essays.

    Choosing the Right Cause and Effect Topic

    The first rule of thumb is, the student should always choose a topic they are familiar with. Choosing a topic, they are familiar with means the student does not have a learning curve to work with. This is to mean the student already has some information on the topic and as such, are not likely to go out of topic on the same. At the same time, they are likely to bring some element of intrigue to their cause and effect essay. The ability to create an interesting cause and effect essay is crucial, given that much of the information is rather factual. It is important the top choice does not hamper the ability of the student to create an interesting piece. Presenting blunt facts is likely to render the readers bored before they complete the paper.

    Purposes of a cause and effect essay

    Cause and effect essays are some of the most common pieces, students will be required to write. This are essays that help the students to develop their analytical skills, at the same time, the cause and effect essays help the students to form connections between the different aspects they will find in nature. By definition this is an essay where the student will be required to write about how things happen and results that come up after the initial action has taken place. This means the student has to organize their ideas based on what happens when a set of conditions are right and when an initial action takes place. They then have to connect the initial action, sets actions or conditions to the results come at the end.

    For example, a student will be required to answer a prompt requiring them explain what exactly happens to a child’s health that starts smoking cigarettes. This is a crucial element, when it comes to analysis, as the student will have to connect the act of smoking to the health impacts the bad habit will have on the health of the sad child.

    Other than making logical connections between information about a cause and the resultant effect, this type of essay also helps the student to make logical conclusions. Making logical conclusions is highly associated with high analytical skills on the part of the student. They are supposed to make the connections, and from the interrelation of the information, make a conclusion. The other aspect associated with cause and effect essays and why they are common in class, is to develop the ability of the student to present information to the readers in a coherent manner. It is one thing to have comprehension skills and another to present the ideas learnt to an audience and a professional tone without bias.
