Order still doesn’t matter Sometimes the issues are presented with the effects sited first… … then the causes are offered as explanation CAUSE EFFECT

Sometimes the issues are presented with the effects sited first…

… then the causes are offered as explanation

Cause/Effect Example (2) Effect: The future of gorillas in the wild is at risk. Scientists predict that at the present rate of decline, in 30 years all the world’s wild gorillas will be gone. Cause: Gorilla meat is a dietary staple for nearly 12 million people in Africa.

One idea is presented first, followed by a similar or different way of seeing things.

Compare/Contrast Example (1) Seurat painted scenes of everyday life full of realistic people and objects with soft edges and lines. He wanted his art to capture “feelings” of the moment. Picasso, on the other hand, used distorted images and strange colors to create mood.

Compare/Contrast Example (2) Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system, much larger than Earth. It is mostly made of hydrogen. It rotates more quickly too. A day on Saturn is only about 10 Earth hours long. But it takes about 30 of our years to make one full trip around the sun.
