English 10: Essays 
Conclusion Techniques 

November 21, 2001

The conclusion is your last chance to make an impression on the reader of your essay. Often, students hurry their conclusions, especially on a test essay. Learn the techniques below to make writing the conclusion an easier and more satisfying task.

 Remember to restate your thesis in a new, reworded sentence to begin your conclusion. Essay's restated Thesis: "The difficulty and confusion caused by various issues make life a challenge for our children."

Summary (most common, but a bit boring)

[Thesis restated] Children are faced with difficult issues in the media, with their peers, and in their families. These facts are important for adults to realize. With luck, our children will grow into well-adjusted adults.

Final Quotation

[Thesis restated] Often, what children need most is a compassionate listener. The Educators for Social Responsibility put it this way: "Just by listening to children you are providing reassurance. By your ability to hear calmly, even their wildest concerns, you communicate that their fears are not too frightening to deal with."


[Thesis restated] Remember, however, that it is sometimes easy to find out what your children are thinking. For example, whenever I drive a car full of teenagers, they treat me as a chauffeur. While I negotiate the city streets, I listen. It is surprising sometimes what you will hear! Keep that in mind when you want to know what is important for your children.

Warning or Remedy (or both, together)

[Thesis restated] If they do not receive help and assurance from their elders, then our children face their difficulties alone. Ignoring the problems, or wishing they would go away is a recipe for disaster. Instead, set aside time each week to talk with your children, find out what's on their minds, and let them know that you care. It could be the most valuable time you have ever given them.


Write your conclusion using two different methods. Do not use the summary method! Choose from the other three techniques demonstrated on this page.
