Parts of a conclusion

  • Restate your topic and why it is important

  • Restate your thesis/claim

  • Address opposing viewpoints and explain why readers should align with your position

Weak conclusion

My room is one of the quietest, most beautiful, and most spacious rooms I have seen. Within the confines of my room, I can work, I can think, I can rest. It is, indeed, a place of refuge in a noisy, crowded, and often ugly world.

Strong conclusion

As mentioned above, the Earth's natural environment has often presented dangers to explorers. Dangerous animals, vast oceans, and violent weather have presented risks to humans. However, the new frontier of outer space, with its vacuum, meteors, and lack of water, presents unique challenges to people who desire to explore it

Steps to follow for a successful conclusion

summarizes the topic sentence (in words different from those used earlier) and

2. restates the thesis (again, in different words).

3. The conclusion should include the most important idea from your paper, the one you most want readers to remember.
4. "returns" to the material in the introduction–the imagery, metaphor, or analogy found there, for instance

5. satisfying conclusion may also contain one last anecdote to illustrate the thesis. Choose a technique that seems appropriate to your subject matter and the tone of your paper.

How to make this strong

  • stress the importance of the thesis statement

  • give the essay a sense of completeness

  • leave a final impression on the reader
