Draft an Effective Conclusion

This Draft an Effective Conclusion video also includes:

Edith Wharton’s depressing tale, “Mrs. Manstey’s View” provides the text for a series of videos that show how to write an argumentative literary essay. The narrator of this segment models how to craft an effective conclusion, not by restating the points in the essay word for word, but by identifying and integrating the most important claims made in the argument, and by convincing the audience that this premise is the best interpretation of the topic. Although designed as part of a series, the video could be used alone. Consider following the video with a guided practice exercise that asks class members to apply these principles to a story they have read. Included in the resource are copies of the slides and the text of the anchor story.
