Your topic sentence is just your main idea. To write a strong topic sentence, you have to know what your point is going to be! Write a list of all the different facts or se…ntences you can think of about your assignment, and choose the one that you find most interesting. Writing is always easiest when you write about something you like. This will be your topic sentence. Check to be sure that you have used the correct grammar and punctuation. It should end up being a statement such as "WikiAnswers is an information website," or "Answering a question on WikiAnswers is simple." A topic sentence makes a statement about a subject and the rest of the paragraph explains or gives examples of the topic sentence. A strong topic sentence should say something, make a point. Now, if you mentally change your topic statement into a question, you can come up with a good "answer" from which you can create supporting sentences. If your topic sentence is, " South Korea is a country in north east Asia", then readers would expect the rest of the paragraph to say some thing about South Korea. Maybe more about it's location, it's neighbours. So you could end up with a paragraph like this: South Korea is a country in northeast Asia. It is located on the southern portion of the Korean peninsular. South Korea's neighbours are China to the west, Japan to the east and North Korea to the north. On the west side of the peninsular is the Yellow sea and on the east side is the Sea of Japan. The East China Sea and the Korean Strait are at the tip of the Korean peninsula.
Topic Sentences: Introduce the paragraph topic and limit it to what can be written in a single paragraph. Are the most general and most important sentence. Contain co…ntrolling ideas (ideas that will be explained, defined, clarified or illustrated in the sentences which follow the topic sentence) Are never just a fact. "I came to Canada in 1993." is a simple fact. With personal opinion only are weak. Avoid the use of "I like" and "I think." Avoid a topic sentence that says, "I like dogs better than cats." The Best Topic Sentences: Contain a "provable" opinion using facts from reliable sources. May also state an "intent." E.g. "The seven steps to making a good spaghetti sauce, one with the finest aromas, will be explained in detail here." The topic sentence should be like a heading for the paragraph; pretend its a newspaper article and you wanna make a heading

The topic sentence or thesis sentence is just the sentence which states your main idea. Usually, your teacher will assign a topic, and you just have to come up with a paragrap…h or essay about that. Write the topic on your paper. Now, make a list of everything you know about that topic - look things up in your textbook or using a search engine if you need to ! You must decide which of these things is most interesting to you - your paper will be much easier if you write about something that you find interesting. That statement will be the topic of your writing; make it into a complete sentence with correct grammar and punctuation. You might try writing a question about the topic that you want to learn about or to explain - change the question into a statement and you have your topic sentence. ** see the related questions below **
