Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Journey's End - Compare and contrast Osborne, Stanhope and Raleigh as people and as soldiers.

    "After considering all three characters I feel that Osborne's calmness and wisdom strongly compliments Raleigh's enthusiasm and energy. Stanhope appears to balance the situation with his bold character. He organises Osborne, Raleigh and the other officers to the best of his ability but as a result he needs Osborne to support him through difficult circumstances. Raleigh respects and looks up to Stanhope and Osborne and learns how to deal with war through them. I found that the three characters work well together in the play and they keep the audience interested and involved at all times. Zara Lightowler 3 4"

  • To what extent do you believe that R.C Sherriff successfully presents the experience of the life in the trenches and of how class attitudes persisted through it?

    "In conclusion it is my belief that R.C. Sheriff did a good job in portraying the horrors of the war which he and I his comrades suffered. He also showed the class attitudes throughout the play. He did this in many ways including the way in which he used the character Hibbert to show the way effect of the war on humans. All of them being extremely effective. Joshua brown 4c"

  • Explore Raleigh and Stanhopes relationship and compare their characters

    "In conclusion, Stanhopeâs character clashed with Raleighâs character causing conflicts in their relationship. Their conflicts were all mostly started by Stanhope as he was worried that Raleigh would tell everyone at home of his state since he was a drunk and changed a lot from when Raleigh had last seen him. A softer side of their is only seen at the end of the book but it does suggest that they had that side to their relationship regardless of their characters clashing with Stanhopeâs paranoia and Raleigh endless hero-worshipping g of Stanhope.
