Grade 9 ELA Module 4, Unit 1, Lesson 27

Crafting a clear and cohesive conclusion to any piece of writing is crucial. A good conclusion restates the central claim posed in the introduction, briefly summarizes the supporting claims, and presents a new way of thinking about the argument. Class members examine two model concluding paragraphs, and discuss the factors that makes one more effective than the other. Individuals then begin to draft their concluding essay paragraph.
