Conclusions should be around 3-6, you are basically wrapping everything up so you want it short and sweet.
The Problem: You don’t know how to write a proposal paper. It proposes an idea (often a solution to a problem) and presents evidence to illustrate why and how the idea should be implemented.
In other words, readers need to see the problem as real and worthy of their attention.Your paper might also need to include other elements, such as a discussion of solutions that have been tried but have failed or a list of resources that will be used to implement your proposal.If you’re doing any outside research (and you probably should), you’ll also need to consult your professor to see how your resources should be cited.I’ve already mentioned this several times, but it bears repeating—again. In this case, you’re writing to college administrators.If you’re trying to convince the administration that it should eliminate Friday classes, don’t write about how you just want to go home Thursday night or that you’re too tired on Friday morning because you usually stay out all night on Thursday.On the other hand, if you present statistics about how often students miss Friday classes and present a survey of students regarding their grades, attendance, and engagement, administrators might take a closer look at whether they should offer Friday classes.As you’re discussing the problem, don’t forget the importance of audience.Your introduction then moves on to your proposed problem—students are not allowed to keep pets in their dorms. This proposal is much more feasible, and administrators might actually want to hear your reasons for not offering classes on Friday.You wrap up your introduction with your proposal to let students keep any type of animal, even a pony or a koala bear, in their rooms. And if your proposal is implemented, think of how great it would be knowing that you’d never have to take a Friday class again!Sample Conclusions Writing a Basic Conclusion Making Your Conclusion as Effective as Possible Avoiding Common Pitfalls Show 1 more...
