Compositions, essays or papers all have the same basic layout. There is an introduction, a body and a conclusion. The introduction pulls the reader into the piece, the body supplies the evidence for the thesis and the conclusion brings the paper to a close. The conclusion is as important as the other parts of the paper and must be strong. Strong conclusions bring a paper to a close and help the reader transition out of the piece.
1.Answer the question, “So what?” Readers need to know why they should care about the points made in your paper. Your paper is important; demonstrate this in your conclusion by telling readers why they should care about your point of view.
2.Synthesize the paper in the conclusion. This means you will pull the points in the paper together to prove that all main ideas lead to the same conclusion.
3.Restate the thesis from the introductory paragraph. This action brings the paper full circle.
4.Redirect your readers to consider an insight or global position for your paper. Help your readers see your thesis and main ideas as useful to themselves and the real world.
5.Propose a course of action in the conclusion. If the paper topic is “Effects of Electric Cars,” prepare a conclusion which suggests how Americans should deal with electric cars in the future.
