To Kill a Mockingbird Essay​ - Writing Conclusions REVIEW 


 
 
A CONCLUSION DOES THESE JOBS: 
● Reviews and summarizes your ​thesis​ and ​topic sentences​. 
● Considers again the ​importance​ of your thesis in light of the information you’ve 
presented. 
● Can offer a ​call to action​ or other u
​ niversal ending which applies TKM to the 21st 
century and its importance to modern audiences. 
 

 
ORGANIZE A CONCLUSION LIKE THIS: 
 
THESIS RESTATED 
DO NOT copy your thesis from your introduction. Rephrase it with synonyms, new words, 
unique re-wording, or just with a different flare. This is to help your reader think about your 
thesis with a new perspective as you leave the essay. 
 
BRIDGE  
START veering away from Harper Lee, Scout, Jem, Atticus, the book,, the time/context, get 
bigger and broader. Say something that starts just referencing a universal thematic topic. 
 
INSIGHT  
Look at how you generated interest to start the essay. 
Write a few sentences thinking about the same ideas, but now your reader knows about 
your text, so - without adding new CDs - you can use that text as you think about those 
ideas again. 
 
CALL TO ACTION/UNIVERSAL “ZOOM OUT” 
Let’s assume your reader got interested, read your whole essay, agreed with your thesis 
and all of your support, and is totally on board with you. 
 
Now what? How can they use what they’ve learned from this text and your writing about 
this text as they go back into their normal life? How will this text and your thesis benefit 
them? What should they do next? 
 
A FEW HINTS: 
Don’t add any new information or CDs in your conclusion. It’s about wrapping up. 
Don’t forget transition words, especially to start the conclusion. 
 
MLA FORMATTING: 
 

Your name.
My name.
