Five Ways To End A High School Research Paper Successfully

When studying in high school you may be required to write a research paper. If you have looked online for information about how to write such a paper, then you should be aware of the fact that such papers may differ considerably according to the stage of the educational system that you are studying at. For example, a high school research paper may require far less work than one written at college or university.

Therefore, you should check to see exactly what instructions you have been given, before writing your work. However, the following suggestions should help you to end your paper successfully.

  1. Writing a conclusion according to the style of paper you are writing
  2. Your ending will almost certainly include some form of conclusion. The conclusion that you write will very much depend upon the style of paper that you are creating. For example, a persuasive paper will require a conclusion that looks at any argument that you have made, and will attempt to justify any point of view that you have argued for or against.

  3. Drawing on information in previous sections
  4. When writing your conclusion, you should be sure to draw on any information that you have included in previous sections. In fact, the idea of a conclusion is to bring together any different points made earlier on in your paper, without actually introducing any new information.

  5. Including a bibliography or appendix section
  6. As well as a conclusion, it might be the case that you need to include a bibliography or appendix. Whilst these are generally required for papers written by older students, you may also be required to include them for high school papers - if in doubt then check with your teacher. A bibliography will include details of any resources that you have cited and used, whilst an appendix section may include any other relevant materials that is referred to but not included in the body section.

  7. Checking the conclusion is relevant to the hypothesis or any questions asked in the introduction
  8. If you have already written the introduction before writing the conclusion then you should double-check to see that it is still relevant to the conclusion that you are writing, and that it refers to any hypothesis or questions that were asked.

  9. Checking what you have written is accurate
  10. Finally, you will need to proofread and edit your work, to ensure the accuracy of any spelling and grammar, as well as any facts or information that you have included.
