- students tend to merely reiterate essay points in their conclusion

Or they tend to introduce new information as a last thought on their topic. Both of these common errors can be avoided – using conclusion-writing-tasks that pack a punch and end speeches on a memorable note.
All materials here are CCSS aligned for upper grades.
Students will begin their conclusions
by summarizing and reviewing their thesis and stating its supporting points, against five world-class speeches.
In addition to affirming connections within their speech,
students will emphasize their topic’s connection to the interests of their audience They will complete their conclusions with a memorable takeaway that will remain with the audience.
Conclusions will allow students to pack a punch by highlighting the most important points in their speech
Students see examples of how conclusions can …
1). - restate problems, and summarize solutions.
2). – appeal to an audience’s sensibilities through an emotional story.
3). – offer a lesson that an audience can apply to their lives.
4). – motivate the audience for a call to action.
5). – recap the main ideas and summarize the key points.
Students will experiment with these tactics
and then write their speech’s final paragraph.
