  • The conclusion should bring together how you developed the points to show how you fully supported your stance in the thesis statement.
  • Bear in mind that the structure of a paper, the thesis statement, the introduction, and the conclusion should all work together. Before you begin writing, I recommend that you write an outline to organize your ideas. Doing this will help you write a logical, well-organized essay.
