The conclusion is the last paragraph. It should not introduce any new information; it should simply be a summary of your introduction, with a restatement of your thesis. You must have at least two academic references. At least one should be one of your textbooks, if not both. Know what is considered academic and what is not. See below for how to format references. If you follow this template and the rubric, you will do very well on your paper!
