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?
  • " ... The most important reason why Germany hated the treaty Of Versailles was the loss of territory..." discuss

    "In conclusion I believe that it was a combination of 4 main factors, the Diktat which basically meant that all the other things had to happen, the War Guilt Clause which would have caused irreparable damage to their ego, the loss of land that left them weak and vulnerable and the reparations which crippled them economically. It was a combination of these three factors which destroyed Germany."

  • "Britains foreign policy changed between 1900-1907" - Assess the Truth in this Opinion.

    "In Conclusion, the statement "Britain's foreign policy changed between 1900-1907" is essentially true but only to a certain extent. Britain's foreign policy grew. They still employed the same Imperial foreign policies but due to complications to retain their colonies they needed assistance from others. With the threat of Germany, as well, Britain needed to be secure. Under Kaiser Wilhelm II the German navy expanded rapidly and this made Britain anxious about the security of her island. Britain has a very small army and if their navy was matched there could be serious consequences. The thought of invasion encouraged the government to take measure to neutralise the threat by forming closer ties with other powers but Lansdowne figured he could protect Britains Empire at the same time."

  • "The breakdown of the Concert of Europe was mainly caused by disagreements amongst the Powers over the issue of intervention." Discuss the validity of this statement.

    "In conclusion, mutual agreement on basic objecttive is very important if congresses are to be successful. When deciding the use of concerted efforts to solve international probelms, the Allied powers and Britain had different views regarding the intervention of internal affairs of other states. They did not compromise and at last caused the breakdown of the Concert of Europe. However, the importance of insincerity of the Powers, disorganization of the congresses and the death of Castlereagh should not be neglected too.
