Now that you have written the last word of the paper body your work seems done. But wait! What about conclusion? You cannot leave the reader without reminding them what it was all about, without summarizing in a nutshell the gist of your paper. A good conclusion lingers in mind long after reading is finished. Just like impressive and unexpected final scenes can overturn the impression made by a movie, so a strong conclusion can make a reader change his mind, so something or think twice about a problem he never noticed before.
Sounds great, but how to write a perfect conclusion paragraph? We will help you to get through this drudge with honor. But keep in mind one more opportunity: you can entrust us with creating a whole paper including a conclusion, or ask for introduction or conclusion only if you are short of time. Just tell us your need and we will take care of it. Reflection, research, argumentation or what’s not – you will get the best work with equally great and impressive conclusion.
Now back to our brief guide.
Why Write A Conclusion When There Is A Whole Paper Above?
An essay needs conclusion because this part reiterates the thesis thus reminding a reader about the major idea of the paper, and lists the most important arguments that you want your reader to remember. But a conclusion is more than that. It is a final hit that you take at your aim. And it can take different and elaborate forms that stir imagination and make your essay exceptional, even if its major parts did not contain any outstanding and thrilling facts.
Conclusion Paragraph Framework And Types
Conclusion has its inherent structure that helps make it coherent and persuasive. Remember, that introduction and conclusion put together cannot exceed 10% of all paper word count, co a conclusion will be brief. But even three sentences can make lasting impression if they are ‘right’ sentences. Thus a conclusion may include:
Reiteration of a thesis.
- Reworded thesis itself
- Its connection to mentioned facts and their strong persuasive power (yes, it is permitted to say, for example, that all mentioned facts clearly support and illustrate the main argument of the paper).
Listing of the most impressive facts
- Ideas and factual evidence (in generalized form)
- Some striking statistics
- Name of a famous scholar or a scholar who supports you viewpoint with research
Suggestions for further research or application
- Where new research should go
- What gaps are left
- What aspects are particularly valuable and need to be studied
The final hit
The most impressive conclusions end in some elegant trick, not just stop abruptly. You may use some set phrasing to underscore what you said (like ‘history will be our judge”), use ideas from other science or area to support your claim (like ‘when a problem is finally brought to light, it is already a step towards its solution’), or just express your sincere hope or fear (if the format permits). This humane and interesting ending will make your conclusion memorable and strong, and the paper will look not like a student’s task but like a powerful piece of a journalist or a writer set to change the world. Or at least it will stand out against standard piece written by classmates.
Now let us get to some examples of conclusions in different styles of writing.
- ‘And today, as I sit and look at the sea, I recall not the storms, and adventures, and seasickness that befell me every time the ship hit a wave. I recall not foreign lands, strange people and even stranger plants and animals. I recall that generous gift of a bowl of milk that I needed so much in my weakness, a gift from a girl I never saw before and would never see again, a girl whose name I could not ask, but whose kindness and warmth reminded that we are people, all the same of suffering flesh and compassionate souls. Do today I see not seas that divide, but the routes to places where people live their daily lives just like we do, no matter their skin color and clothing’.
- ‘Now that origin of AIDS is discovered, and some treatment is found, it is easy to give up and say that there are other diseases to be cured, and money is very limited. AIDS can be prevented, after all. But if we recall how the fight for AIDS research and cure was led, and how much efforts it took to attract resources and attention to it, then questions arise about who decide what to cure and what to leave alone. Epidemics in Africa show too clearly that our skills are still far from perfect or even sufficient, and that funds are streamed into causes profitable but beneficial to few. That’s what has to be cured first. The rest of curing process will be only the matter of time, then.’
- ‘The story of Ulysses has become a commonplace, and today many will somehow recall that he traveled away and then returned home. But it was Joyce, and it was his time of postmodern and feminist writing that enabled the re-examination of the very concept of journey. He was the first to say that even a trip to a butcher at the corner can last a lifetime, and be filled with events worth the longest book. And Joyce showed it, showed the depth of each moment like no one before. And he did it in style, in many different styles that still serve the same purpose. This is why, along with Wolf, his works are the Bible of postmodern, and the Bible of delving into the moment, exploring it, and drawing as much experiences from it as Ulysses drew from his round-the-globe voyage.”
