  1. Writing Conclusions “Whatever you are, be a good one.”  (Abraham Lincoln, 1809-65)

  2. To write a successful conclusion you must do three things: • Restate your position, • Summarize your reasons, and • Make one final plea for your position Note: It is best to follow this particular order to write a effective 50 to 60 word conclusion. Creator, José J. GonzálezSTCCSpring 2002

  4. general INTRODUCTION For years there has been a huge debate about smoking. Do you think that smoking should be banned?
