8 Ways You Can Write Conclusion For Your Essay

Wazzup Pilipinas!

What is a conclusion? Except for restating a thesis and summarizing the vital points of your writing, a conclusion is intended to make a good final impression that will stay with your reader after they have finished reading your essay. Moreover, a well-written conclusion is your last chance to underline the importance of your writing and to close the discussion with a definitive statement. No wonder, this part of the essay is a significant one and, therefore, should be approached with the utmost seriousness. However, to write a strong conclusion is not that easy, at least until you learn several simple ways to do it right. Here they are:

1. “So what” strategy
A really good conclusion has to provide the reader with the clear answer to the “So what” question. Just like any other academic paper, your essay should be meaningful, and your writing should make sense, so ensure your last paragraph does provide the answer to this question.

2. Restated thesis
Almost any essay needs a restated thesis to be included in the first sentence of the concluding part. However, it does not mean that you should copy your statement from the introductory paragraph. Instead, you need to reintroduce it using a different language.

3. Sense of completeness
A well-written conclusion should tie all your ideas and points together and present them in a cohesive manner. In other words, make sure the last paragraph of your essay conveys a sense of completeness and wholeness.

4. Transition to another topic
One of the great ways to conclude an essay is to provide a smooth transition to another topic, no less important than the discussed one. Such an approach will emphasize the importance of your work and will leave your reader thinking in a new direction.

5. A call to action
What do you want your readers to do after they have finished your essay? Provide a solution to the discussed problem or call to action. Show your readers how they can use the information from your essay and what they should do with it.

6. Power of conciseness
The concluding paragraph should consist of only 5-6 sentences or even less, so don’t include any new ideas and irrelevant or unnecessary information in it. Keep it short and concise.

7. Personal commentary
Some essays, especially those with a certain personal connection, can be concluded with the author’s commentary. Therefore, if your assignment requirements allow you to apply such an approach, end your essay with a relevant anecdote from your life, your personal position, convictions, etc.

8. Apology
Don’t apology for your thoughts and ideas. Even if you think that your conclusion is not something that other people will like or understand, you need to resist the urge to apologize. After all, it’s your point of view, and it has the right to exist.

No matter what method of writing conclusions you choose, make sure it is relevant to your type of essay. If you have any doubts, you can always ask to show you the right direction. Hope, this will help you get the better grade!
