Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Shadows 3 - Section 2: Interact with text/concept



If students seem to have difficulty understanding the concept of cause and effect, try demonstrating some simple cause/effect relationships.  For example,  roll an pencil acroos a desk so that it falls off.  Have students tell you the cause(you pushed a pencil) and the effect(it fell off of the desk).  This allows them to focus on just one or the other.  I generally do several sessions where I provide the cause and the students come up with the effect.  

When they are able to generate the effect  from a given cause, I then switch and give them the effect and they have to generate the cause.
