DO – Be Powerful

In conclusion paragraph could be a difficult paragraph to write effectively but, it is worth investing some time in as it is your last chance to convince or otherwise impress the reader. Take this opportunity to restate your thesis with certainty; in the event that you present your argument as “obvious” then your reader may indeed do the same.

As you did in the introduction, try not to copy whole phrases word for word although you can reuse the same key words in the conclusion. Instead, attempt to utilize this last paragraph to really show your talent as a writer when you are as artful in your rephrasing as you possibly can.

Taken together, then, the overall structure of a five essay that is paragraph look something like this:

Introduction Paragraph

  • An attention-grabbing “hook”
  • A thesis statement
  • A preview associated with three subtopics you can expect to discuss in the physical body paragraphs.

First Body Paragraph

  • Topic sentence which states the very first subtopic and opens with a transition
  • Supporting details or examples
  • A reason of how this example proves your thesis

Second Body Paragraph

  • Topic sentence which states the second subtopic and opens with a transition
  • Supporting details or examples
  • An explanation of how this example proves your thesis

Third Body Paragraph

  • Topic sentence which states the third subtopic and opens with a transition
  • Supporting details or examples
  • An explanation of how this example proves your thesis

Concluding Paragraph

  • Concluding Transition, Reverse “hook,” and restatement of thesis.
  • Rephrasing main topic and subtopics.
  • Global statement or call to action.
