After completing the quiz, Incorporate the following words into a narrative (be creative). You must use the words in the order they appear. 1.since 2. consequently 3. because 4. therefore 5. due to (the fact that) 6. for this reason 7. seeing that 8. as a result (of this)
Share Narratives and Make an Inference After writing and sharing your creative narratives, what can you infer about the writing? Can you guess what skill is being introduced?
That’s Right!! Skill Focus: Cause and Effect Cause-and-effect relationship is both a way of thinking and a format for writing. Analyzing and emphasizing cause-and- effect writing develops critical thinking skills.
The eight key words used to create the narrative are transition words creating a cause/effect organizational pattern. Can you identify which word is associated with cause and which is related to effect? 1.since 2.consequently 3.because 4. therefore 5. due to (the fact that) 6. for this reason 7. seeing that 8. as a result (of this)
The plot of “A Sound of Thunder”, also written by Bradbury, is based on a theoretical cause-and-effect chain that might look something like this: A Sound of Thunder Reading Skills: Cause and Effect Time-traveling human steps on butterfly in past. Butterfly population declines. Entire ecosystem is upset. Humans evolve in different environment. Modern civilization is altered.
Work with a partner to create a cause and effect graphic organizer using evidence from F451. You must use direct quotes and page numbers. Pair Practice-- Cause and Effect
Individual Practice--The Metamorphosis of Montag Directions: Chart Montag’s change from a “happy,” thoughtless fireman to a rebel reader. Use direct quotes and explain Montag’s change. Evidence of ChangeJustification of Effect on Montag Ex: “And then, very slowly, as he walked, he tilted his head back in the rain, for just a few moments, and opened his mouth…” Ex: In the short time he spends with Clarisse, he is affected. She teaches him to consider his own feelings and appreciate the beauty of nature
Exit Slip Carla was a diffident young woman, and this characteristic often held her back. She hesitated to express her ideas at work, although her ideas were as good as, if not superior to, those of her coworkers. When her friends discussed what movie they might see that night or what restaurant they would eat at, Carla always went along with the crowd. The result was that her own favorites were overlooked, and she sat through a few films in which she had little interest and ate some meals that she actually disliked. She even found it hard to end a phone conversation when she needed the time for another activity, or to refuse a friend a favor, however inconvenient it might be. 1.List a cause/effect key word from this passage 2.Justify how this word creates a cause/effect organizational pattern. 3.Create another appropriate cause/effect statement appropriate for “Carla”.
