Student Learning: Academic analysis

The concluding sentence

Here is a video by Mark Roberts from YouTube.

Video source: Smrt English
Video length: 1m:54s

This video explains the importance of a concluding sentence:
  • its role in the paragraph
  • words or phrases for starting your final sentence
Mark has some good ideas, but we think his examples are a little informal for academic writing. Can you think of more academic signals for a concluding sentence? Return to index
