Administrative Policy Writing
Topic Sentence Example
If the conclusion were placed first, the paragraph would be harder to
It would introduce too much information to process:
the idea of this B&E company
Also leading with the conclusion is frustrating for the reader. The
reader must take it as true and read the entire paragraph. The reader
has to maintain that trust until the end of the paragraph.
At that point, the reader might have to
to the first sentence,
read it again, and decide if your conclusion makes sense.
Donít require your reader to put in this extra effort. Use a topic
sentence that logically leads to a conclusion so the reader can see how
you got there on the first reading.
