Work on your conclusion over the weekend.
The goal of your conclusion isn’t to introduce any new ideas, but to sum up everything you’ve written. Specifically, your conclusion should accomplish three major goals:
- Restate the main idea of your essay, or your thesis statement
- Summarize the three subpoints of your essay
- Leave the reader with an interesting final impression
Instructions for writing your conclusion:
1) Look back at your thesis statement. Think of synonyms for the points in your thesis. Now replace those words
using synonyms so that the statement means exactly the same as stated in the introduction but without useless
2) Divide this statement into two sentences.
2) Now add a "final thought" that would leave your readers thinking about your paper. That final thought must contain
the word "should."
Example: "Society should consider the negative impact of accepting accusations with no physical evidence."
