How To Write A Good Conclusion Paragraph

How to Write a Good Conclusion Paragraph

Parents, does your student need assistance with writing a concluding paragraph? Our teachers can help. Sign up for either our Middle School Essay Writing or High School Essay Writing course for 1-on-1 guidance.

How to Write A Conclusion

In a conclusion paragraph, you summarize what you’ve written about in your paper. When you’re writing a good conclusion paragraph, you need to think about the main point that you want to get across and be sure it’s included. If you’ve already written a fabulous introductory paragraph, you can write something similar with different wording. Here are some points to remember:

Use your introductory paragraph as a guide. You may have started by saying, “There are three classes at school that I absolutely can’t wait to go to every day.” You can start your conclusion by saying, “Gym, Math, and Art are the three classes I try to never miss.”

If it’s a longer paper, a good place to start is by looking at what each paragraph was about. For example, if you write a paper about zoo animals, each paragraph would probably be about one particular animal. In your conclusion, you should briefly mention each animal again. “Zoo animals like polar bears, lions, and giraffes are amazing creatures.”

Leave your readers with something to think about. Suggest that they learn more with a sentence like, “We have a lot to learn about global warming.” You can also give them something to do after reading your paper. For example, “It’s easy to make your own popsicles. Grab some orange juice and give it a try!”

Summary: How to Make a Good Conclusion Paragraph

Remember that it’s important to wrap up your writing by summarizing the main idea for your readers. This brings your writing to a smooth close and creates a well-written piece of work.

What is a conclusion paragraph?

A conclusion is what you will leave with your reader

It “wraps up” your essay

It demonstrates to the reader that you accomplished what you set out to do

It shows how you have proved your thesis

It provides the reader with a sense of closure on the topic


A conclusion is the opposite of the introduction

Remember that the introduction begins general and ends specific

The conclusion begins specific and moves to the general

Essay Structure

So, if we use shapes to demonstrate the essay’s content, it would look like this:


Thesis statement

Body of Essay

Rephrased thesis statement


What to include

Your conclusion wraps up your essay in a tidy package and brings it home for your reader

Your topic sentence should summarize what you said in your thesis statement

This suggests to your reader that you have accomplished what you set out to accomplish

Do not simply restate your thesis statement, as that would be redundant

Rephrase the thesis statement with fresh and deeper understanding

Your conclusion is no place to bring up new ideas

Your supporting sentences should summarize what you have already said in the body of your essay

If a brilliant idea tries to sneak into the final paragraph, you must pluck it out and let it have its own paragraph in the body, or leave it out completely

Your topic for each body paragraph should be summarized in the conclusion

Wrap up the main points

Your closing sentence should help the reader feel a sense of closure

Your closing sentence is your last word on the subject; it is your “clincher”

Demonstrate the importance of your ideas

Propel your reader to a new view of the subject

End on a positive note

Your closing sentence should make your readers glad they read your paper

Strategies for an effective conclusion

Play the “So What” Game.

When you read a statement from the conclusion, ask yourself, “So what?” or “Why should anybody care?”

Ponder that question and answer it

Basically, I’m just saying that education was important to Douglass

So what?

Well, it was important because it was a key to him feeling like a free and equal citizen

Why should anybody care?

That’s important because plantation owners tried to keep slaves from being educated so that they could maintain control. When Douglass obtained an education, he undermined that control personally.

Return to the theme or themes in the introduction

This brings the reader full circle

If you begin by describing a scenario, you can end with the same scenario as proof that your essay is helpful in creating a new understanding

Refer to the introductory paragraph by using key words, or parallel concepts and images that you also used in the introduction


Include a brief summary of the paper’s main points, but don’t simply repeat things that were in the paper

Pull it all together

Show your reader how the points you made and the support and examples you used fit together

Include a provocative insight or quotation from the research or reading you did for the paper

Propose a course of action, a solution to an issue, or questions for further study

Point to broader implications

A paper about the style of writer, Virginia Woolf, could point to her influence on other writers or later feminists

Concluding strategies that do not work

Beginning with an unnecessary, overused phrase

These may work in speeches, but they come across as wooden and trite in writing

“in conclusion”

“in summary”

“in closing”

“as shown in the essay”

Stating the thesis for the very first time

Introducing a new idea or subtopic in your conclusion

Making sentimental, emotional appeals that are out of character with the rest of the paper

Including evidence (quotations, statistics, etc.) that should be in the body of the paper

Ineffective conclusions

“That’s My Story and I’m Sticking to It”

Restates the thesis and is usually painfully short

Does not push ideas forward

Written when the writer can’t think of anything else to say


In conclusion, Frederick Douglass was, as we have seen, a pioneer in American education, proving that education was a major force for social change with regard to slavery.

“Sherlock Holmes”

State the thesis for the first time in the conclusion

Writer thinks it would be more dramatic to keep the reader in suspense and then “wow” them with the main idea, as in a Sherlock Holmes mystery

Readers want an analytical discussion of the topic in academic style, with the thesis statement up front

“America the Beautiful”

Draws on emotion to make its appeal

Out of character with the rest of the paper

“Grab Bag”

Includes extra information thought of or found but couldn’t integrate into the main body

Creates confusion for the reader

Conclusion outline

Topic sentence

Fresh rephrasing of thesis statement

Supporting sentences

Summarize or wrap up the main points in the body of the essay

Explain how ideas fit together

Closing sentence

Final words

Connects back to the introduction

Provides a sense of closure

Why Hiring A Lawyer To Write A Strongly Worded Letter Is Almost Always A Bad Idea

I understand why.

They think that if I write a letter, their employer will be scared and give them some version of what they want. That’s not an unreasonable assumption. It just happens to be wrong.

Here are three reasons it’s not a good idea to hire a lawyer to write a single letter.

1. Your Employer Knows This Game.

Unless it a smaller or new employer, this is very likely not its first rodeo. This is particularly true if the company has a general counsel or an outside attorney.

Your former company many have received a dozen or more such letters. And you know what it has learned? That many of these letters contain empty threats. If the company just ignores the letter or perhaps takes the time to respond denying all claims-or even makes threats that the company will take legal action against you-the problem goes away.

So, what does the company do when it receives a strongly worded letter from your lawyer, the one that you paid good money for? The company ignores it or uses the opportunity to (figuratively) poke a stick in your eye by writing a nasty letter back.

2. It’s Never Just a Letter.

Rarely is it the case that an employer backs down after a single letter. The first letter is the opening salvo.

Next, the company will respond, usually in writing, to your attorney. To solve the problem, the attorney you hired will probably need to call the opposing counsel back or perhaps write another letter. This process could go back and forth literally for months. During that time, for your attorney to effectively solve the problem, she will need to talk to you, review documents, and potentially research case law.

But what happens when the company responds but all you’ve done is hire a lawyer to write the letter? The lawyer will pass the letter along to you. You can then try to take matters into your own hands, but this is what will happen. You’ll write the company back. The company, thinking that you are perhaps still represented by an attorney, will refuse, through its lawyer, to talk to you about substance. Why? It is against the rules of ethics for a lawyer to talk to someone represented by another lawyer.

Of course, you can get around this problem by telling the company that you no longer have a lawyer. Then it can talk to you. The problem is, now you really have no leverage. The company lawyer now knows that-because you only hired a lawyer to write a single letter-that you do not have the will or resources or will to fight this out. Game over.

Attorneys and law firms develop professional reputations. Is the firm or the attorney you hired known as a fighter, reasonable, knowledgeable on the law-or something less than that? This is particularly true within a practice like employment law. Lawyers who practice employment law primarily see a lot of each other and so get a sense of how individual lawyers “play ball.”

If your attorney is willing to “just write a letter,” chances are that this is not the first time he or she has done so. That can mean bad news for you. The value of a letter from a lawyer is the threat of a lawsuit, even if the lawyer never explicitly threatens to sue.

Imagine this conversation between a company president and his attorney:

Attorney: We just received a letter from a lawyer representing that accountant we fired claiming that we have exposure under the Equal Pay Act because we paid her less than our other male accountant. She wants a year’s severance.

President: [Fuming.] Yeah, well. I didn’t think she was nearly as good. [Sigh.] I don’t want to roll over on this one, but I also don’t want to spend a lot of time fighting this out either. I’m not opposed to doing what we need to do to make this go away. Do you think she’d really sue, or is this one where we can call her bluff?

Attorney: Hard to say. She’s hired Arden Smith, a lawyer I know. In fact, I’ve got a case in the Eastern District with her right now. So, I know that she’s willing to pull the trigger. Arden’s not a stick-up artist. The good news is, though, that she’s pretty reasonable. If you give me some settlement authority, maybe start with three months of severance to start, leaving a bit of gas in the tank for another round or so, I’m pretty sure we can get this done.

President: Sounds good. I don’t need the distraction.


Attorney: We just received a letter from a lawyer on behalf of that accountant we fired claiming that we have exposure under the Equal Pay Act because we paid her less than our other male accountant. She wants a year’s severance.

President: [Fuming.] Yeah, well. I didn’t think she was nearly as good. [Sigh.] I don’t want to roll over on this one, but I also don’t want to spend a lot of time fighting this out either. I’m not opposed to doing what we need to do to make this go away. Do you think she’d really sue, or is this one where we can call her bluff?

Attorney: I don’t think so. She’s hired Bob Smith, a lawyer I know. He used to practice with his sister, Arden, but he hung out a shingle last year. Now he seems to have a practice where he mostly churns out demand letters. I’ve gotten a few from him in other cases, but I’ve never actually seen him pull the trigger. I hate to say it because I Iike him personally, but professionally he’s pretty much a stick-up artist. My recommendation is that we just let this one ride. Chances are we don’t even hear from him again. If we do, I can send him a strong letter back. Then he’s almost sure to back down.

President: Sounds good. I don’t need the distraction of fighting a lawsuit. But I don’t want to pay her a dime if I don’t have to. Let’s just not even bother to respond.

Moral: If the lawyer you hire is known for crying wolf, the letter he or she writes on your behalf won’t even be worth the paper it is printed on.

There are exceptions that prove the rule. The rare instances in which I agree to write a single letter for a client have three factors in common.

First, I have some history with the company successfully resolving similar issues. That gives me credibility that can make a single letter work. The company knows me and knows that-at least in most circumstances-I’m prepared to follow through.

Second, the “ask” is simple, like “release her from the noncompete” or “return his personal laptop that he left in the office.” This makes it less likely that there will be a need for a lot of back and forth.

Third, the client is prepared to live with whatever the outcome is from the letter-win, lose, or draw.

However, even when those factors are present, it’s rare that I agree to just write a letter. I’d rather be Arden than Bob.

Summing It Up

Resolving a dispute with your employer requires a personal and financial commitment. In most circumstances, employers will be more than happy to pay their attorney to try to push you around-at least for a bit.

Hiring an attorney to write a single letter is almost never enough to produce results. If you’re going to fight, be prepared to fight. That doesn’t mean you have to run off and file a lawsuit, but it does mean that you should be prepared to go a few rounds with your employer. If you’re not, that’s fine. Rather than waste money by trying to dip your toe in the water in a dispute with your employer, use your energy to find a new and better job.
