This PowerPoint lesson teaches students how to write the last stage of a literary essay: the conclusion. It scaffolds all the steps of the conclusion and provides specific examples of strong and weak work. While the examples given refer to Romeo and Juliet, I have used this PowerPoint with students who range in grade (from 9-12) and ability (applied-gifted). In general, it provides a very concrete approach to what is, for some students, an otherwise daunting task.
