Cause and Effect PowerPoint presentation - to practice or introduce the text structure of cause and effect - with single cause and a single effect, a sequence of causes and effects, and situations with more than one cause or more than one effect.
A selection of graphic organizers helps students to identify and organize the causes and effects. The PowerPoint includes plenty of practice with first sentences and then paragraphs along with graphic organizers for students to use to practice identify causes and effects.
Practicing with each specific text structure helps students to really understand how the structure works and prepares them to better identify it in their own reading later.This presentation supports the reading standards related to making inferences and using text structures.
A fill-in student note sheet, along with a completed one for students who might need it, is provided on the last two slides. Print it out ahead of time for students to complete as they view the slides.
