General

restate the thesis
Restate the thesis
  • Summarize the thesis without repeating yourself
  • The most specific part of the conclusion
  • Should include a transition to indicate that this is your concluding paragraph
the lead out
The Lead-out
  • Just like the lead-in only backwards
  • Makes the topic larger to become more general and less specific
  • Smoothes out the conclusion paragraph
the clincher
The Clincher
  • Last sentence of the last paragraph
  • Give the paper finality
  • Similar to an attention getter because it should make the reader think and leave an impression
  • Most general part of the conclusion paragraph
