Cause-Effect Essay Extended Draft Outline Template

 

Note: Part I will be work toward developing your ideas. Parts II-IV will be the portions of your actual essay for next week: your full introduction paragraph, your rich, full-sentence outline of your body paragraphs, your full conclusion paragraph. Next week, it is Parts II-IV that you will use as the pieces toward composing your full essay in all-paragraph form.

 

 

  1. Getting Your Ideas Worked Out

 

Fill in the blanks in the following sentences for your brief initial blueprint:

    1. I have chosen to construct my essay using a single (insert either cause or effect here).  My single (choose here cause or effect) will be (name your actual specific, narrowed, single cause or effect here i.e., The effect is quitting smoking. or The cause is Moving back into my mother’s basement.).
    2. Because I chose (choose cause or effect here) for my main idea, my three body points will be (causes or effects- choose which).  Those three (causes or effects- choose which) are as follows (for instance, if quitting smoking is the effect, list the three most meaningful causes here that led to the quitting, and if, for example, the cause is moving back into my mom’s basement, I would list the three most powerful and engaging effects that have resulted from it):

 

      1. [insert here]
      2. [insert here]
      3. [insert here]

 

 

 

  1. INTRODUCTION

 

In this section of your planning, draft a possible introductory paragraph (the very first paragraph of your cause/effect essay for next week). Remember that the introduction should engage the reader, offer some overview of your topic, and end in a thesis statement. Because the thesis statement normally serves as the transitional point between the introduction and body, draft your tentative thesis as the last sentence of the introduction.

 

[Insert full introduction paragraph, with attention-grabber, introduction of main ideas, and thesis statement here. Your thesis statement must include one main cause and several effects or one main effect and several causes, pulling together what you did in part b above into a single statement.]

 

  1. THE OUTLINE

 

Using specific details, create a brief outline of at least three points (with an eye toward each being a rich, detailed paragraph in your essay next week), stating whether your outline is in one cause/multiple effects form or one effect/multiple causes form) and using your sub-categories to fill in rich details and analysis.

 

  1. [Note your first main point here in a complete sentence. Be sure this point supports your choice of form above- If you are using the overall organizational plan of one cause and multiple effects, then I, II, and III in this outline will each be a powerful cause for that effect.  If you are using one effect and multiple causes, then I, II, and II in this outline will each be a powerful effect of that cause]
    1. [Insert here: Based on your topic sentence above, list a sentence of support, being as detailed, engaging, and energetic as possible, making your reader see the relevance and importance of these ideas, details, and images. “A.” here will be your first sentence of support for your topic sentence “I.” Remember, too, to consider appealing to your reader through logic, emotion, and authority.]
    2. [Follow the same instructions as above, but now please write your second support item for this paragraph. Remember to employ granular, specific details and examples.]
    3. [Follow the same instructions as above, but now please write your second support item for this paragraph. Remember to employ granular, specific details and examples.]

 

  1. [Insert your second main point here in a complete sentence. Be sure this point supports your choice of form above- If you are using the overall organizational plan of one cause and multiple effects, then I, II, and III in this outline will each be a powerful cause for that effect.  If you are using one effect and multiple causes, then I, II, and II in this outline will each be a powerful effect of that cause.]
    1. [Insert here: Based on your topic sentence above, list a sentence of support, being as detailed, engaging, and energetic as possible, making your reader see the relevance and importance of these ideas, details, and images. “A.” here will be your first sentence of support for your topic sentence “II.” Remember, too, to consider appealing to your reader through logic, emotion, and authority.]
    2. [Follow the same instructions as above, but now please write your second support item for this paragraph. Remember to employ granular, specific details and examples.]
    3. [Follow the same instructions as above, but now please write your second support item for this paragraph. Remember to employ granular, specific details and examples.]

 

  1. [Insert your third main point in a complete sentence. Be sure this point supports your choice of form above- If you are using the overall organizational plan of one cause and multiple effects, then I, II, and III in this outline will each be a powerful cause for that effect.  If you are using one effect and multiple causes, then I, II, and II in this outline will each be a powerful effect of that cause.]
    1. [Insert here:  Based on your topic sentence above, list a sentence of support, being as detailed, engaging, and energetic as possible, making your reader see the relevance and importance of these ideas, details, and images. “A.” here will be your first sentence of support for your topic sentence “III.” Remember, too, to consider appealing to your reader through logic, emotion, and authority.]
    2. [Follow the same instructions as above, but now please write your second support item for this paragraph. Remember to employ granular, specific details and examples.]
    3. [Follow the same instructions as above, but now please write your second support item for this paragraph. Remember to employ granular, specific details and examples.]

 

  1. CONCLUSION

 

In this section, draft a possible concluding paragraph for your cause/effect essay (the final paragraph of your essay for next week). Your conclusion should summarize the overall findings and link to your purpose with a restatement of the thesis. 

 

[Insert full conclusion paragraph, with transition, reiteration of overall point without restating the thesis word for word, and a look to the bigger picture, to leave your reader thinking about larger and/or future and/or personal implications.]
