Chapter 12: What Have I Accomplished? Conclusion and Final Assessment

Try This!


After you have revised your essay, write a concluding paragraph that uses one of the above strategies and contains your fully complex final argument. This may mean going back to your introduction and adjusting it so that the strategy in your conclusion matches the one used in the introduction. When you are finished, write a different version of your conclusion using a different strategy. Which one do you prefer? Which one does a better job of situating your argument in a scholarly discussion? Which one does a better job of providing a final argument for your essay? Which one is most appropriate to the genre of academic discourse in which you are participating?
