important points about paragraph

Filed under: Extra — anlactunay @ 7:08 AM

These are the important points about paragraph:
1. A good topic sentence
• is a complete sentence with a subject, a verb, and a controlling idea.
• is neither too general nor too specific. It clearly states the main idea of the paragraph but does not include specific details.
• is usually the first sentence in the paragraph.
2. Good supporting sentences
• explain or prove the topic sentence.
• are specific and factual.
• can be examples, statistics, or quotations.
3. A good concluding sentence
• signals the end of the paragraph.
• summarizes the important points briefly or restates the topic sentence in different words.
