The lead-out is where you conclude the paragraph and its corresponding argument. It also provides an opportunity to emphasize your unique voice as a scholar. To generate the lead-out, writers ask themselves questions such as What is the lasting impression I want this paragraph to have? Ultimately, what is this paragraph’s argument about? What is the overall significance of the idea presented?
A strong lead-out sentence wraps up your paragraph neatly for the reader. Often, though, your writing won’t end with just one paragraph. Check out this helpful video from the Walden Writing Center for some tips and tricks on how to use your lead-out to create transition as you move into the next paragraph.
