Causal Analysis
Your project this time is to write a causal analysis (not casual, which is different). Causation, sometimes called cause / effect, is tricky and requires a close reading eye as well as a resistance to a too-simple explanation. Causes are sometimes clear, but they are just as likely to be hidden or working in combination with other causes. Cause / effect analyses often use “Why” questions: why did this happen and what are the consequences? Or “How” questions: how does one thing shape or determine some other thing? For more on Causation, run the Voicethread in this week’s folder.
Typically in a cause-effect essay, you’re working with one of one thing and several of another, either one cause with multiple effects (Twitchy dies and different people grieve in different ways.) or one effect that has multiple causes (The war, the incarceration, Twitchy’s reasons for joining the Army, even the racism of the military that puts the 442 in the most dangerous places—all lead to his being in the path of that bullet.). For Essay 3, you’ll be doing the first kind of analysis, with one big cause and multiple consequences: Extrapolating from the experiences of our 14 narrator characters, explore the consequences of World War II and the incarceration of Japanese Americans on San Francisco’s Japantown.
As with any new writing assignment, you’ll want to re-read / browse through the entire novel with just your writing project in mind, though it’s safe to say the beginning and the end will be your most fruitful hunting grounds. What was Japantown like before the evacuation and what’s it like in that last chapter? What might Japantown have been uninterrupted and what promise is there for its future? Some of this simply requires evidence lifted from the text; some will be more speculative: What might Keiko contribute to rebuilding Japantown? What might Mas have contributed to Japantown had the war never happened? Beyond individual lives, what community structures were destroyed? What is it possible to rebuild? What’s gone forever?
After gathering your evidence and drafting your ideas, begin shaping your thesis: one strong statement, likely at the end of paragraph 1, articulating your argument. Remember that a thesis is genuinely debatable—a reasonable person might reasonably offer a different analysis than yours. One essay may be more pessimistic than another, or one essay may focus on tangibles like property while another focuses more on cultural preservation.
You may also find it useful to let the characters be more representative and less individual. What happens to a community when their superheroes are damaged by war? What happens when unfair treatment inspires young men to become lawyers? What happens to a community when its most vibrant dreamers decide to live far far away? Who comes home? Who can never come home? Who chooses to never come home? What kind of Japantown is present and possible?
It should be easy this time to avoid summarizing the plot. Still, be sure your paragraphs are all headed by strong topic sentences: a claim about Japantown followed by discussion that includes some evidence, and a final bit of commentary before shifting to a new paragraph / next claim.
It’s possible to write this essay using only Chee, but if you have other sources you want to use, you may. Just be sure to introduce and document everything carefully. And even if Chee is your only source, include a bib.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
