This chapter explores the importance of bringing an argument to a clear conclusion. It shows students how to construct a conclusion which goes beyond a mere summary of points already made in the middle. It emphasises the importance of producing a synthesis of materials, highlighting the main points made in the argument of the essay, so that the conclusion brings the argument directly to bear on the essay question itself. This chapter also points out some common mistakes which students make in writing conclusions, and uses real student examples to show what works and what does not work so well in writing a conclusion to a sociology essay.
