Global Revision Workbook Step Four


An effective conclusion synthesizes the paper’s argument for the reader. It can also explain the larger significance of the paper and/or suggest further questions to explore.

In this step, you’ll test your conclusion for how well it

●    synthesizes the paper’s argument

●    explains the larger significance of the argument

Watch the video below to begin.

Now revise your conclusion, then copy and paste into the worksheet the part of your conclusion that synthesizes your argument along with the part that tells the reader about your argument’s larger significance.

Submit Your Work

When you’re finished with this last task, make sure you save your worksheet. Your instructor may ask you to submit it along with your revised draft or in preparation for a conference. As always, make sure you carefully follow your instructor’s directions for submitting your work.
