Epic Paragraphs Need Epic Conclusions

The final line of every paragraph needs to be epic. Boost your grade by making your conclusions epic.

No weak Links here…

Imagine that this is the question you need to answer:

Which member of the Avengers contributed the most in the fight against Ultron?

From here, I planned to write about the Hulk and his heroics, and settled on this Statement:

The Hulk is the most valuable member of the Avengers in the final battle against Ultron.

How you can write a great link.

This is where you bring it all together. Linking is a little more complicated that just saying “THIS is what I just said”, but that can be a helpful place to start. Let’s see how that looks:

Because the Hulk is heroic, and brings Black Widow to the fight, he is the most important member of the Avengers.

Make your point clear, but "tone it down" a little.

Well… it is the point I’m trying to make, but it’s so blunt – like a verbal punch from the Hulk himself.

When you go to write a Linking sentence you’re not just looking to repeat something you’ve already said just for the sake of it.

A good Link is able to point out what your Analysis does to support your argument.

The Linking sentence I came up with a moment would work, but take a second and see what I’m joining together…

In this sentence, I’m linking the Example back to the Statement, not my Analysis. Here’s what it should look like:

The additional fighting power supplied by the Hulk, through both his own combat and that done by Black Widow, is essential to the Avenger’s plan to overwhelm Ultron, and without the Hulk’s valuable contribution, the Avengers may not have been successful.

^This^ is what is an epic paragraph statement looks like.
