Write a Cause and Effect Essay.

Prompt: Choose ONE of the following topics for your essay:

1. What impact does frequent violence (either from war or street violence) have on a community?

2. What effect does social media have on real-life communications?

3. What are the effects of modern technology on children?

4. What are causes and effects of changing a major in the middle of one’s studies?

5. What causes a person to become an excellent student?

Write a 500 word essay (not an email or letter) based on the writing prompt.

You must choose ONE of the essay options I have provided for this assignment. If you submit an essay that does not respond to one of the prompts, your essay will not be accepted as an appropriate response to this writing assignment; instead, you will be asked to write another essay that does respond to the prompt you were assigned.

The first draft of your Exploratory Essay (500 words minimum) is due on Wednesday, September 25, 2019. The final draft is due Sunday, September 29, 2019.
