Topic sentence

How do I create a topic sentence?

Your topic sentence should clearly state the writing choice that you’ll be analyzing. Ideally, this directly connects to one of the writing choices you mentioned in your thesis.

Here’s an example of a topic sentence:

In order to get the audience on his side, Reagan directly aligns himself with his audience.
