MORE ABOUT CONCLUSION
What is a conclusion?
The conclusion is the final section of an essay. It summarizes the points made in the essay and restates the thesis statement in different words.
While the introduction is often considered the most important part of an essay, the conclusion is often the trickiest part to write. The goal of the conclusion is to summarize all of the major points of the essay without repeating them word for word.
Articles, opinion pieces, blog posts, research papers, and other types of writing also include conclusions to tie all the points together and emphasize their importance.
Why is conclusion important?
The first records of the word conclusion come from around 1300. It ultimately comes from the Latin verb conclūdere, meaning “to end an argument.”
Just like with introductions, your teacher will likely tell you that the conclusion should only be as long as it needs to be to do its job.
To write a good conclusion, you often begin with a transition and restate your thesis using different wording from the introduction. Next, you’ll repeat the main points you made in the body using the same wording and without introducing any new information or arguments. You can then end your conclusion with a thought-provoking statement or a call to action that demonstrates the importance of the essay’s topic.
The most important job of the conclusion is to tie everything together and to avoid rambling or repeating things that have already been said.
Did you know … ?
Because the conclusion comes last in an essay, writers often write it last. This can make writing the conclusion easier because you know what your introduction and body say.

While most students aren’t fans of writing conclusions, they often see them as the finish line of essay writing.
