Ending your Essay

  • By Professor Allison Knox, Elgin Community College

Take Your Reader Back Home

  • Bring back the imagery from the attention getter
  • We live in a society today where everyone plays an important role to keep a stable society. As citizens, we each live in a particular “class.” A majority of people make up the middle class, while fewer are considered to be lower or upper class.
  • Since I just hinted at the
  • actual ads, maybe in the
  • conclusion, I could actually
  • describe part of one . . .

Don’t Leave Reader Stranded!

  • Remind the reader what you have covered and where you have been.
  • Acceptance of the good and bad moments in my life has led me to some success and has helped me become the independent and determined person that I am today.
  • Now, in my conclusion,
  • I need to remind my
  • readers that I have
  • shown both
  • independence and
  • determination
  • Some go on to lead happy lives without further education. Some, like me, seek second chances. . .

Conclusion should REFLECT the Introduction

  • Introduction
  • Body
  • Conclusion
  • Start broad
  • Narrow to
  • thesis
  • To Do in Small Groups:
  • Re-read the intro and conclusion “Phonics First” in Sticks and Stones.
  • Find the thesis statement in the intro
  • Find the restatement of the thesis in the conclusion.
  • Re-read the Intro and Conclusion for “Only She”
  • Where does the Conclusion reflects ideas or imagery from the Intro?
  • Where is the Thesis Statement restated or implied?
  • To Do in as a class:
  • The American Heritage Dictionary defines “anxiety” as a “state or cause of uneasiness and apprehension; worry.” I define anxiety as teenagers; giving my teens the freedom to make decisions. Many of my nights are sleepless, yet my days are buoyed by the hope of being a “good enough” mom. Sometime I wonder if am am going to survive parenthood at all. I feel I am drowning in a sea of anxiety. After all, family life is not what is used to be. I find that our current American culture creates an alarming atmosphere in which to raise teens.
  • Start conclusion
  • with
  • restatement
  • of thesis
  • Then review
  • examples from
  • BODY that
  • show the
  • anxiety
  • Close conclusion
  • with new definition
  • or some reference to
  • definitions used in intro
