LC: To write a shared conclusion for a discussion text

Today, we are going to write our final paragraph for our discussion text - the conclusion. In the conclusion we need to sum up the arguments 'for' and 'against' and leave the reader to make up their own mind - we must not give our own opinion.


Whilst we are writing the conclusion, we can add some of our cohesive devices so that our writing is clear and flows naturally.


  • in conclusion
  • after reading both sides of the argument
  • however
  • moreover
  • finally
  • to sum up
  • bearing all of this in mind
