My writing class is working on cause/effect essays. For now, I’ve restricted them to one or the other. I’d like to have them write a chain reaction essay, but I just can’t think of one that I could show them a video of and have them write their essays on the same process.
I was thinking of Chernobyl or perhaps Union Carbide — something I could show them an hour or so of video over and that they could write about. I’d like for it to be something positive, but I can’t imagine finding a video of the chain reaction of something like Head Start, though I haven’t tried.
