It’s the end of your essay, and you have one last task: Finish it off. Whether you’re writing a research paper or an admissions essay, the conclusion is where all of the information comes together and makes sense as a whole. So how do you write a good conclusion? Here are some tips:
Restate Main Argument
Now that you’ve had a chance to reflect on the main argument of your essay, it’s time, to sum up, your findings. You should summarize the evidence you have presented and restate the main argument of your essay. This will help ensure that readers can easily understand what you were trying to say in their own words.
“The best way for businesses to increase profits is by providing high-quality products at low prices.” (Main Argument) * “In order for consumers’ needs to be met, companies must focus on creating value rather than just making more money.” (Conclusion)
Review of Evidence and Support
The final section of your essay should be devoted to summarizing the main points and supporting evidence in the body of your paper. You can do this by re-stating what you have already discussed, providing a summary of those points, or restating them again with additional information that you have learned since writing your original draft.
In addition to simply restating what has been said before, it’s important for you to reinforce each point with additional examples or quotes from key sources (books, websites) related specifically to these arguments. This creates consistency throughout both parts of your essay—the introduction and conclusion—and makes it easier for readers who may not remember everything about what was discussed earlier on in the text but still want some context when reading through each section again later on after having finished reading all parts together as one whole piece the first time around during editing stage.
Final Thoughts and Call to Action
You’ve finished your essay, and it’s time to wrap things up. The conclusion of a paper is the place where you summarize your arguments, and make a call to action. It’s the last chance to make your case for why you think your topic is important—and it’s also a great place to incorporate all those ideas from throughout the paper so that readers can see how everything fits together.
- Summarize the main points of your essay in a clear and concise manner.
- State your argument clearly and concisely.
- What is your call to action? How will readers benefit as a result of reading this article?
What is the main takeaway? If readers take away just one thing from your article, what would it be? What does it all mean?
An effective conclusion can help you achieve better grades.
The conclusion of your essay is the last paragraph, and it’s an opportunity to summarize what you’ve said in the body of the text. It’s also where you restate your thesis statement, review evidence and support for that thesis statement, and more.
Here are some tips for writing effective conclusions:
- Conclusions are very important because they summarize what you’ve written about in previous paragraphs. If readers aren’t able to easily grasp what was discussed earlier in a discussion or how those concepts relate to one another (or if they don’t understand why we’re discussing something), then they won’t be able to fully understand or appreciate everything that came before it either! So be sure not just focus on summarizing but also connecting back up with what came before so that readers can connect further down their own paths as well.”
When you’re writing a conclusion, you should also be sure to review the evidence and support for your thesis statement. This is especially important if readers are unfamiliar with the topic at hand or if they feel like they haven’t quite grasped what was discussed earlier in a discussion or how those concepts relate to one another.
The Bottom Line
In conclusion, I would like to remind you that this is not an exact science. You might find that your conclusion looks different from mine, but it should still be clear, concise, and engaging. Remember that the most important part of writing involves making sure that your words are chosen wisely and then laid out in a logical manner so they flow well with each other when read aloud by an audience.
