Conclusion ideas and rules


Various ways to end an essay:

  • Summarize your ideas
  • Issue a call to action--encourage the reader to believe and act on your opinion
  • Make a prediction
  • Conclude with a story that briefly gives an example of your opinion

Things to avoid in concluding:

  • Do not introduce new ideas
  • Do not restate your thesis in the exact same way
  • Do not write "In conclusion"
  • Do not tell the reader waht you've told them--"I have proven"

Here are some links to help you
