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"
