Conclusions could also show the results of something. Think about a science experiment. After you conduct the research, you gather all of the results. Once the results are gathered, then you ask what the data or information shows. Once you decide what the data shows, then this means you have come to a conclusion or a final result.
Since your conclusion is at the very end, it is the very last part that the reader or listener will hear or see. The conclusion is your final thoughts and words on the subject of which you are speaking. It reminds the audience or reader of your argument and main points. More importantly, the conclusion is your chance to convince your audience or make them passionate about your topic by making them feel something.
In writing, conclusions can come at the end of main, supporting points. These conclusions are usually a sentence at the end of a paragraph. These sentence conclusions summarize the point being made in the paragraph. Another kind of conclusion comes at the very end of a paper or essay. This conclusion is usually a paragraph in length (3-5 sentences) and it wraps up the entire paper. The conclusion at the end of the paper reminds the reader of all of the main points and it reminds the reader what they should be thinking about when considering the topic given. Sentence conclusions and final conclusions both summarize.
Here are tips for a good conclusion:
- Review your topic
- Remind the audience why your topic is important
- Review your opinion on the subject and your main points to support your opinion
- Move the audience’s emotions or convince them to do something
Stories can have conclusions too. We usually think of conclusions in stories as the ending. While the conclusion usually makes us feel good because the story is complete, the conclusion does not always have to be happy or solve all the problems in the book. Regardless, the conclusion is the ending of a story.
You might recognize a conclusion by a clear transition phrase that notes the beginning of a conclusion. Some common transitions for conclusions include:
- In summary,
- In conclusion / to conclude,
- To summarize,
- In brief,
- In the end,
A conclusion also means that you need to completely form an opinion about a topic by thinking about information and making decisions about the topic. Forming an opinion means that you are drawing conclusions from information. Imagine that you want to go get food from a restaurant. When you get to the restaurant, you see that the parking lot is empty and there are no cars around. You can see through the windows that the lights are off. From these two pieces of information, you can draw the conclusion that the restaurant is closed.
You can think of conclusions in two different ways. In writing, a conclusion is a summary of the main point(s) or the argument overall. These conclusions in writing are meant to remind the reader of what they should have learned as they read. In terms of thinking, conclusions are decisions and opinions we form after thinking logically about information.
