About this excerpt:

Strong finish

This student has an effective combination of facts about his subject coupled with his perspective on the matter. Although we cannot see his essay in full, we can assume that if the quality of the whole essay matches the quality of the conclusion as presented here, it would have done very well (and in fact it did; he was awarded an A for this assignment).

Look out for the features of this conclusion that portray this student's perspective. Note that he does not need to use any first-person language to reveal his voice.
