Description

Conclusions can be tough to write, but they are so critical to an essay: the equivalent of a dessert after a meal, leaving a final impression on the reader.

This *EDITABLE* 45-minute lesson introduces students to conclusion paragraphs through a relatable metaphor and the analysis of two sample paragraphs as mentor texts. Students then learn about the “recipe” for an effective and engaging conclusion before attempting to write their own.

Applicable to ANY informative or argumentative essay, this handout is a ready-to-go formative assessment, letting students safely try to write their own paragraph using a short, manageable checklist of criteria. These paragraphs become quick grading for you later!
