Current Video: Conclusion
A report’s conclusion should do more than repeat information – it should demonstrate how all your research and key statements tie together to form a complete and compelling story. Watch Chelsea as she explains the importance of this section of a report.
>> CHELSEA: This section is the end of your paper, so it will rap everything up. This is where you'll give a summary of your research and talk about what you learned while doing your project. Don't just use the conclusion to repeat things from the rest of your paper. Instead, use this section to make it all come together; the research you did, the points you made. Show the reader how they all fit into one complete story. The conclusion is also your last chance to leave an impression on the reader, so make sure your delivery is strong and maybe even a little dramatic, but not too dramatic, unless your paper's for drama class.
