Topic Sentence Paragraphs

posted: 2.21.07 by Barclay Barrios

Have students review the material in the handbook on topic sentences, paragraphs, and transitions. Then ask them to take all topic sentences from their current draft and copy/paste them into a new document to make a paragraph composed of these topic sentences. Ideally, this paragraph will be readable with some basic flow. Use these topic sentence paragraphs to open a discussion of transitions, topic sentences, and paper organization.
