Essay 3 Conclusion: So What?

Many writers find conclusions to be challenging.  Often, a writer simply restates the introduction, leaving the reader with little to think about after the essay.  Or, sometimes a writer continues to introduce new ideas in the conclusion, thereby leaving the reader–and the essay–hanging.

For this week’s blog activity, record your working conclusion to Essay 3.  In a separate paragraph, explain what conclusion strategy you are using and why.  For more on strategies, see the handbook (p. 47), and The UNC’s Writing Center Handout on conclusions: http://writingcenter.unc.edu/handouts/conclusions/.

Please post conclusions by Wednesday, October 10, at 10 PM, CST.  Provide feedback to 2 of your peers by Friday, October 12, 10 PM, CST.  Check back over the weekend to see what your peers and I have written about your conclusions.  Remember: writing “this looks good” neither helps the writer nor earns you full points for this activity.
