Topic Sentence

  • A topic sentence can come anywhere in your paragraph, be it at the beginning, middle, or end of the paragraph. Wherever the placement will be the main purpose of topic sentence is the same, topic sentence should state the main idea of the paragraph.

Topic Sentence:

  • States the main idea
  • Focus the limited subject to one point that can be covered in the paragraph
  • It is more general than the sentences that develop it

Supporting Sentences

  • Supporting sentences forms the body of the paragraph; it answers the questions that can be formed from the topic sentence. This explains the topic sentence that provides specific details like facts, examples, incidents or reasons.

Concluding Sentence

  • If you watch documentary or any events in the television to make it look good they always provide a very good conclusion that highlights the events main idea. Concluding sentence recalls the main idea of the paragraph and then provides a strong ending to the paragraph.
  • A well written conclusion should not be dull or a repetition of the topic sentence, it should be a fresh insight like the one we call clinchers.

Sample Paragraph

On my recent movie viewing of Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, I learned a great deal about Johnny Depp's acting performance. Johnny Depp, like the other actors have their own signature and uniqueness on how they portray their role. Actors perform well by portraying and thinking that they are the character who they are playing. This is the same for Depp but he also has a unique way of living the character he is playing during the scenes, he acts on his own, adds character and charm and makes it more real by being the character itself. These characteristics of Depp have convinced critics that there is no other actor that can justify the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.
