Product Description
Directions: A cause is an action or event that leads directly to another event. An effect is the direct outcome of an action or event. One effect often becomes the cause of other effects, resulting in a chain of interrelated events. Studying these cause-and effect relationships can help you understand how and why things happen

Here is how you do it:
1. Scan the title and text of the election to get an idea of the events that are being described.

2. Look for clue words and phrases that identify causes. These include words like because, due to, since, and therefore. In addition, look for clue words and phrases that identify effects, such as brought about, led to, as a result, in effect, and consequently

3. Sometimes, causes and effects are not signaled by clue words. Read “between the lines” of the passage to identify implied causes and effects

4. Notice that an effect may be the cause of another event. This begins a chain of causes and effects.
