How to make the conclusion not as redundant? How to “tie it all together?”

Here is a roadmap that I use with my students in regards to the conclusion:

V. Conclusion

A. Restatement of thesis that digs deeper into the overall intended meaning of the text than the one in the introductory paragraph (Try not to begin your conclusion paragraph with “In conclusion”).

B. Reflection on examples and main ideas in body paragraphs, significance of these strategies, AND how they are linked to your thesis.

C. State if these were effective in conveying the claim/thesis/purpose.

D. Closing thought - closing out the main purpose of the text being analyzed.
