Quick Overview

"Teaching Cause and Effect" contains a set of instructional methods that teachers can use to help students engage in higher order reasoning, thinking about a relationship in which one thing either leads to another or results from another.

* Required Fields



Research on "Teaching Cause and Effect" included studies involving almost 200 students enrolled in seventh and eighth grad social studies and science classes. Participating students represented those identified as having learning disabilities, those who were low achieving, average achieving and high achieving.

Students in the experimental group were better able to learn the steps designed to analyze a cause-and-effect relationship and apply the steps as they analyzed a cause-and-effect relationship. In addition, students in the experimental group were better able to identify the causes of an event, identify the effects of an event, identify connections between causes and effects and summarize the importance of the causes and effects.

Finally, two other findings are of interest. First, a correlation was found between knowledge of the strategy steps and the ability to analyze a cause-and-effect relationship. Second, when students who learned this strategy took quality notes, they were better able to analyze a cause-and-effect relationship.
