Parts of the Conclusion
There are TWO parts to your conclusion...
Restate your Thesis
When you restate your thesis, you are simply rewording or rewriting your original thesis. Use the SAME format for the thesis that we used in the introduction.
Why do we need to restate the thesis?
Leave your Reader Thinking

Leave your Reader Thinking
Leave them with a quote that proves your side of the argument
Give them an action they could take to support your cause
