signal words
Signal Words
  • Let the reader know you are about to wrap things up
  • Use words/phrases like:
    • In conclusion
    • Finally
    • Last(ly)
    • In closing
    • To conclude
rephrase the thesis
Rephrase the Thesis
  • The key word is rephrase. Write the thesis in a different way.
  • Example:
    • Original thesis: Every child should have a pet because pets provide companionship, teach compassion, and encourage responsibility.
    • Rephrased thesis: Companionship, compassion, and responsibility are three things that we can give to our children in the form of a warm, cuddly, and furry friend.
come full circle
Come Full Circle
  • End where you began: look back at the hook you used to introduce your essay and give some thought to how you might tie the end of your essay to the beginning.
  • For example: if you began with an anecdote, you might refer to that anecdote again in the conclusion.
introduction
Introduction
  • You are in control. You are the leader, and the success or failure of your realm depends on your ability to think, adapt, plan ahead, and execute. Are you an international diplomat, the CEP of a major corporation, or a field general leading troops into battle? You may be some day, but right now you are a child playing a game of chess. Chess has proven benefits for young people. It exercises their brains, improves their academic performance, and teaches them positive social skills.

Conclusion
  • Lastly, though some parents think it is the computer that is the key to preparing their children for the rigors of the 21st century, others turn to chess and its promise of increased brain power, increased success in school, and increased social skills. These parents know that the ancient game of kings and queens might just help their child someday become a success—perhaps even as a future diplomat, a CEO, or field general.
