Effect introductions

What we did in class, today – Using the model effect essay, we reviewed how to write the introduction to an effect essay:

  1. Attention getting opening sentence(s) – quotation, anecdote, or explanation/statistic
  2. Background information – Focus on cause of the effects
  3. Thesis sentence – Includes topic, pattern of organization, and list of effects

Class video – The class was not recorded because the memory card was full.


  1. Complete your introduction and research examples for the body.
  2. Read at least three Empower3000 articles and do the corresponding Activities before midnight on Friday, March 21.

What we will do in class on Tuesday, March 18 – We will write the body of the paper and the conclusion in class.
