Administrative Policy Writing
Have a Topic Sentence
provide: “If you flood readers with details first,
they become impatient and may resist hearing your message. A
good topic sentence draws the audience into your paragraph.”
You have to be intentional about writing topic sentences
because it is
to the way we think.
often we think about a topic in a haphazard way.
or we start with a conclusion, and then think of the reasons or
necessary background information later.
The topic sentence is not your conclusion. Rather, it is the
general subject-matter to be developed in the paragraph. The
ultimate conclusion of the paragraph may be near the end.
