What will happen if you watch TV instead of studying? Why did your favorite shirt shrink in the wash? As you ponder these questions, you are considering the “causes” and “effects” of events. Thinking and writing about causes and effects helps you explore the world from two angles. When you wonder about causes, you are looking for answers about why something happens. Looking at effects helps you understand the results that follow a certain cause. History, science, and the news often focus on causes, effects, or both. You might, for instance, watch a TV documentary about the causes and effects of volcanic eruptions. Learning to identify causes and effects will help you to make sense of the world around you.
