Conclusions

The last section of a piece of writing.  Can be one paragraph to several pages in length.  Conclusions reflect on and consider the possible implications of your argument and findings. They may also raise questions for future consideration and/or explain the importance of your findings. Keep in mind this word of advice from one writing student : If you are reading  an essay and at the end of the whole thing you read basically the same thing as what the essay started with, youre going to be really annoyed.
