Avoid adding new information so the reader is not confused or distracted from the argument that was made.
Avoid writing too much. A conclusion should just be a brief overview of the main points made and the thesis.


How do I integrate a source?

Start by introducing the source by stating the author followed by the name of the article or vice versa. For example: In the article "Over the Moon," Jane Doe states...

Or
As Jane Doe, author of "Over the Moon," states......

The above step can either be done at the beginning or middle of the sentence. For example:

Jane Doe, author of "Over the Moon," states that cows can fly.
Or
Cows can fly according to Jane Doe, author of "Over the Moon."
