Transcript of "Concluding Sentences "

  1. 1.  Concluding sentences are important because they provide an opportunity for you to recap the importance of each body paragraph before moving on to another supporting topic.
  2. 2.  Option 1: A concluding sentence may restate the main idea using different words.  Example: Clearly, the negative health risks associated with the use of marijuana indicate that this drug should remain illegal.
  3. 3.  Option 2: A concluding sentence may summarize key points made in the paragraph.  Example: Because of its popularity, widespread abuse, and profitability, the US should decriminalize marijuana and profit from its use.
  4. 4.  Option 3: A concluding sentence may profess a hope for the future.  Example: Finally, because marijuana has more value than recreational value, it may be one day recognized as a respected healing tool.
  5. 5.  Option 4: A concluding sentence may formulate an opinion on the topic.  Example: Because of the dangers associated with a dependence on marijuana, it clearly should not become more readily available to the public.
  6. 6.  Option 5: A concluding sentence may give advice on the topic.  Example: Consider writing a congress representative to ensure marijuana’s benefits can be more readily accessible to those in pain.
  7. 7.  Never announce your concluding sentence.  Bad: This paragraph highlighted why you should consider supporting the decriminalization of marijuana.  Better: Decriminalizing marijuana would offer greater comfort to ill patients in times of distress.
  8. 8.  Consider using transitional phrases to begin your concluding sentence.  In conclusion, because of the dangers associated with a dependence on marijuana, it clearly should not become more readily available to the public.  Finally, because marijuana has more value than recreational value, it may be one day recognized as a respected healing tool.  Lastly, consider writing a congress representative to ensure marijuana’s benefits can be more readily accessible to those in pain.  Examples: to conclude, in the end, lastly, at last, last but not least, as a final point, finally, in conclusion
