Everyone acknowledges the importance of a first impression, but in writing, what about the final points that you make? A conclusion paragraph in an essay should boldly mirror the points made in the introduction paragraph, while still leaving the reader something revelatory to think about (a.k.a. “the big takeaway”.) Its unspoken message should be, “I am competent. I am in control. And I am professional.”
ESL students can learn to make this kind of powerful final impression with the techniques featured in the “How to Write a Great Conclusion Paragraph” Power Point presentation.
Appropriate for any level of ESL student at the middle, secondary, and higher education grade levels, this digital resource will model for the language learners how to compose their own conclusion paragraphs by simply flipping the structure of the introduction paragraph.
The bright colors and creative clip art featured in this presentation provide a fun backdrop for the ESL students as they read about the four steps to follow when writing a conclusion paragraph.
