Often the most difficult aspect of a paper, crafting a conclusion is crucial for closing out any form of writing assignment.
Conclusions look different depending on the genre of work. Here are some examples:
Things to Focus on:
- A summary can be helpful, but don’t overdo it. Focus more on synthesis than summary (UNC)
- Creativity! Put a spark of ingenuity into a conclusion, focusing on broader implications.
- Draw ideas from the introduction. If you can introduce a subject well, starting broadly and moving toward specificity, you are also capable of doing the opposite leading into a conclusion.
