Having read your essay, we should understand this main thought with fresh and deeper understanding, and your conclusion wants to reflect what we have learned.
There are some cautions we want to keep in mind as we fashion our final utterance.
Here is a brief list of things that you might accomplish in your concluding paragraph(s).* There are certainly other things that you can do, and you certainly don't want to do all these things.
They're only suggestions: Here is the concluding paragraph of George Orwell's famous essay, "Politics and the English Language." If you would like to read the entire essay from which this conclusion is taken (and check out, especially, the beginning), click HERE.
Adapt the order to suit the needs of each particular essay.
The conclusion is the final place to show the connections between all the points made in your essay.*The list of things that you might do in a concluding paragraph is taken from the University of Richmond's online document, Writing Conclusions (with the gracious permission of UR's Writer's Web coordinator, Joe Essid).No new information that is relevant to the focus of the essay should be introduced here.If you simplify your English, you are freed from the worst follies of orthodoxy.You cannot speak any of the necessary dialects, and when you make a stupid remark its stupidity will be obvious, even to yourself.Writing, just as much as reading, is a process of self discovery.Do not, in any case, simply restate your thesis statement in your final paragraph, as that would be redundant.It is also important to judge for yourself that you have, in fact, done so.If you find that your thesis statement now sounds hollow or irrelevant that you haven't done what you set out to do then you need either to revise your argument or to redefine your thesis statement.If you wish to make a new point, it should be in a body paragraph. (For strategies on rewording, the principles of paraphrasing can help.) Often the thesis statement is revisited near the beginning of the conclusion.As in the introduction, it is essential to revisit your thesis statement in the conclusion. The rest of the conclusion expands out, giving the reader an idea of the relevance and implications of your answer: As with the introduction, this order of elements is not set in stone.
