Weak Conclusions

  The Seven Deadly Writing Sins

The following are four tips for maintaining clarity in a religion paper:

  1. Include topic sentences with every paragraph.

    Topic sentences should be mini-thesis statements that serve to focus the entire paragraph. Every sentence in the paragraph should support the topic sentence.

  2. Use cohesive devices.
    a. Pronouns
    b. Synonyms
    c. Word Repetition

  3. Use transition words and phrases between paragraphs and sentences.

  4. Include concluding sentences in many paragraphs.
