Cause and effect papers often make predictions based on known facts, trends, and developments. Prediction moves from the known and observable into the unknown and possible. Prediction tries to answer questions like these: What are the possible or likely consequences? Are these results likely to have great impact on my life or the lives of others? Are these results likely to have great impact on shaping public policy, society, or history? What preconditions would have to exist before my predictions could come about?
What a wonderful support for writing teachers! It is important to also think about how text structure plays into reading. By being immersed in the genre of informational text as readers and then as writers, students will begin to see these structures and how using them benefit the readers they write for — the symbiotic relationship between the two is one of the toughest kinds of thinking for kids to discover, yet, it is the most powerful in creating independent writers whose learning then becomes generative. “Reading with the eyes of a writer” allows students (and adults!) to use effective writing techniques in any genre.
