1. Cause/Effect Essay
This assignment is an exercise in critical thinking/causal analysis, writing in 3rd person (he, she, it, etc.) and in learning the essentials of APA citation and references. This third essay will describe a breakdown in communications and the direct causes—and possibly the indirect and remote causes—of that breakdown and its further effect(s). Your specific topic will be to analyze the Seinfeld episode ‘Jerry Seinfeld Season 6 Episode 8’ on the link in Week 3. If you have subscription to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc., you may also watch it there. Ask for Jerry Seinfeld, Season 6 Episode 8, The Mom and Pop Store.
The voices will sound strange in this online copy, but you will be able to understand the dialogue. After enjoying this episode, consider one or more of the breakdowns in communications experienced one or more of the characters. The essay should clearly trace how the breakdown was a specific effect for a character or characters and what the further effects were of the breakdown. You should focus the thesis so that it can be effectively described in a 400-word essay. You may use more than one communications breakdown, as long as you correctly write a thesis to cover more than one example, and you stay in the 400 word essay requirement.
The essay should have an introduction that effectively catches the reader’s attention, states the title and general idea of the Episode, and previews the cause/effect analysis. The main body of the essay should describe the cause(s) of the communications breakdown(s) in vivid detail so the reader has a clear understanding of why the cause(s) led to the initial and further effects. You should also detail the effect(s) in the body of the paper. The conclusion should review the cause(s) and make clear why the effect(s) happened. Conclusions may generalize or universalize the thesis.
You will have to reference and in-text cite the YouTube site. When you quote a character’s line, when you state the name of the episode, or when you paraphrase what a character said, you will have to cite in text to refer to the reference at the end. NOTE: If you have watched the episode elsewhere, such as Netflix, you will have to change the Reference for the ‘Retrieved from’ line.
Using Citation Machine to help in formatting, the reference looks like this, and you may copy this exactly:
The Mom and Pop Store, Season 6 Episode 8. Retrieved from
The in-text citation will look like this, and you may copy this exactly: (Seinfeld, n.d.)
You do not need to use any other sources for this essay. Concentrate on the analysis. If you decide to use an additional source for support however, you MUST add it to the reference list and correctly cite it in-text.
