Comprehension Strategies: Determining Cause and Effect

Good readers are able to recognize the cause and effect relationship in a text. After a brief lecture on how to recognize this comprehension strategy, eighth graders discuss several examples and then complete a practice exercise. Consider extending the lesson by reading together an informational text that employs this structure or having class members craft a short cause and effect paragraph.
