Here is a typical template for cause and effect in ielts writing test. Hope it could help :)
Paragraph1: Describe all the causes
One underlying cause of the problem is...
Another reason leading to this situation is...
Apart from X,Y also needs to carry a good part of the blame....

Paragraph 2: Describe effects
One of the most serious effects of drug use is...
The second adverse impact is
Drug use also causes....

And here is the way that you could develop your paragraph:
In general , there are 4 ways to develop a paragraph:
+ Using Facts, statistics.
+ Using examples
+ Using personal experiences
+ Using explanation

Eg: Facts and statistics:

Traffic acccidents are a serious problem in Vietnam (topic sentence). According to the newest research in Vn news, each year more than 10,000 people lose their lives in road accidents in this country. (supporting ideas using statistics).

Eg: Explanation:

Also, cooking takes a lot of time (topic sentence). While the food might not actually be on the stove for very long, you also have to consider the time that is spent shopping for the food, cleaning and chopping it, and cleaning up the kitchen it is cooked.(supporting ideas using explanation).

What you should do is try to combine these 4 ways in the most flexible way.Im looking forward to seeing your essay soon

pick one

Hi Kimberly, I see that you are supposed to "pick one." Please tell us a little more about the assignment. do you mean that you are trying to pick a topic? What does the teacher ask you to do?

If you want to try to write the essay, we can make corrections and try to improve it.

I'm not very sure about what you exactly mean by your problem. Try to include more details about your topic.

But maybe you can start with your childhood experience. Why do or why don't you like to go to school at a early age. And then say "as time went" and talk about your feeling now.
