Writing   Your Conclusion Workshop

  

 

Prepare

As you prepare to write your   second discussion for this week, take a few moments to do the following: Read the Ashford Writing        Center (AWC) articles on Introductions and        Conclusions and Essay Structure. Review the grading rubric for this discussion.

 

Reflect

Before drafting your initial post,   take time to reflect on your closing argument. Does your conclusion   reemphasize the important points that you have made in your essay? Have you   summarized your main points and rephrased your thesis statement? Do the final   lines of your conclusion leave your readers with something interesting to   consider?

 

Write (due Thursday, Day 3) In 200 to 300 words, share        your concluding paragraph. Your conclusion should reiterate the position        of your paper by summarizing your main points and rephrased thesis        statement. In a final paragraph, share your original thesis statement. In a separate paragraph,        identify and explain the following: What is your conclusion’s         closing argument? In addition, note any         questions you may have regarding your conclusion (e.g., rephrased         thesis statement, summarized main points, etc.) so your classmates can         assist you.  

 

Respond to Peers (due Monday, Day 7) In 125 to 200 words each,        discuss and critique the concluding paragraphs of at least two of your        classmates. Please identify, analyze, and discuss the following: Rephrased thesis statement Main points of the argument         (e.g., are the main points summarized?)
