Writing Arguments

Steps to Writing an Argument

Write Your Conclusion

Your conclusion should state your conviction compellingly. 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.

Write a conclusion that strongly states your position on the topic and revisits important points from your introduction.
