Cause and Effect Diagrams

Cause and Effect diagrams, also called sequence of events diagrams, are a type of graphic organizer that describe how events affect one another in a process.

The student must be able to identify and analyze the cause(s) and the effect(s) of an event or process. In this process, the student realizes how one step affects the other.

There are many models of cause and effect events, including:
 Disjointed Events - in which each cause has one effect. One Cause Leading to Multiple Events - in which one cause has multiple effects. Multiple Causes Leading to One Event - in which multiple causes have one effect (a fishbone diagram can be used for these). Chain of Events - in which one event causes another, which triggers another, etc., like the domino effect. Cycle of Events - in which a cyclic causes/effects are repeated, like a feedback loop. More Complex Events - in which multiple causes and effects interact.

 Cesar Chavez: 4 Causes --> 1 Effect Fishbone Diagram PrintoutChart an effort like that of Cesar Chavez's non-violent fight for migrant farm worker rights. Use a cause-and-effect graphic organizer to structure the way you might fight for social justice. Sample answers, the desired effect is better working conditions/salary for migrant farm workers. The causes used to get the effect could be: Lobby legislators (write letters to congress, draft a petition and get signatures on it), Create a group to bargain with owners (get members to join, write an agreement with the terms you desire), Organize strikes (organize strikers, determine when, where, and why strike should occur), and Start boycotts (determine what should be boycotted, contact newspapers and local news).
