Conclusion Paragraph

The conclusion paragraph connects the introduction and body paragraphs. It needs to bring a sense of closure to the composition. The conclusion paragraph can "make or break" the composition's effectiveness. If the paragraph finishes weak, the reader may not remember the main comparisons made earlier.

Summarize the Main Points and Restate the Position
The writer needs to summarize the main points and restate the overarching comparison about the two subjects to help remind the reader.

Tie It Together
This last sentence concludes the composition and ties it all together. A good strategy is for the concluding sentence to tie back to the "hook" in the introduction paragraph. The concluding sentence should be much more than just a restatement of the "hook", and the reader should be able to understand its connection to the thesis statement comparison about the two subjects. As one suggestion, a quotation can be an effective concluding sentence when tied back to the "hook".
