Answer Key/Rubric

  1. Student defines conclusion as an ending section that brings the narrative text to a satisfying, logical end.   Students recognize that new information should not be introduced in the conclusion and that in a narrative text, any conflicts should have been resolved before the conclusion.

  2. Students will recognize easy-to-use conclusions that can be effective in any type of writing.  Some easy conclusions in a narrative text include:
  • A funny twist of events (irony)
  • Introducing an unexpected event (especially useful in suspenseful narrative texts)
  • A full resolution of the conflict
  • A reflection on a lesson learned
  1. Student will identify which easy-to-use conclusion might be most effective for their writing.  Depending on the task, the conclusion will vary.  For example, in a funny story, an unusual twist at the conclusion might be fitting.  In a suspenseful narrative text, an unexpected event or cliff hanger could be used.

  2. Student will create a conclusion using one of the easy-to-use conclusions or can write a different type of conclusion.  The conclusion will clearly and satisfyingly bring the narrative to a resolution and will provide a logical ending based on details and events presented throughout the narrative.
