Write an essay of three to four typewritten, double-spaced pages (at least three full pages) on a topic of your devising that employs a pattern of cause and/or effect. You may write more than four pages if you choose, but see me if your draft runs to more than five full pages;
probably you will need to reduce the scope of your essay. If you wish, you may concentrate on causes or on effects or on both. Review the material in the textbook on developing a thesis and organizing an essay (Chapters 1-3).
