Steps to Writing an Argument

Write Your Conclusion

Your conclusion should summarize your point of view convincingly. Review your main points and tell your audience what action you would like them to take; address and resolve the main points from your introduction. Remember that while this is the end of your paper, it’s not the end of the discussion.  Here are some general steps that you can consider when writing your conclusion:

  • Briefly restate the topic’s importance

  • Restate your point of view,

  • Mention the opposing viewpoints to help make your argument more compelling.
