We have already talked about how to write an introductory paragraph, excellent body paragraphs for an essay or topic and steps of essay writing. In the article below I am going to tell you how to write the best concluding paragraph.
How to Write the Best Concluding Paragraph
The conclusion is just like the result of an exam. When you take an exam then you will see the main result of it, the same case conclusion is like wrapping up a gift then sending it somewhere. When you conclude your writing it’s like wrapping up your writing with a strong sentence.
How to write your conclusion
- Super So What
Thesis: You are not going to repeat your thesis exactly as you had in your introduction paragraph, but what you are going to do is say the same thing again as a way to make sure that the reader is getting your point. You are going to paraphrase it this time as you are making the same point new language.
Why thesis is important in the conclusion? This is your last chance to drive home the point that you are trying to prove. This like the closing arguments in a court case and you are the lawyer.
Summarize: In the second part, you are going to summarize your arguments and you are summarizing the main points you made to try to prove your thesis and you are going to paraphrase those argumentative sentences a little bit as well.
Don’t repeat what you have written in your arguments, because it’s going to sound repetitive and boring to the reader. Just try to provide a new twist on it or different way of saying the same thing. In addition, you can include the main ideas from your topic sentences or include specific sentences if they are really powerful.
Super So What: This is the so what for the whole essay. This is one thing that you want the reader to take away from reading your whole essay. The super so what should answer them why do I even care about your essay.
This is going to be the last line of your essay you want to end strong and after that you do not say anything else.
