Abstract

Readers are pragmatic and want to know the bottom line. The use of strong topic or thesis sentences will grab the reader’s attention and help the reader understand the significance of the information in each paragraph. The writer does not want to waste an opportunity or just tread water in a thesis sentence by merely stating a fact. This article discusses teaching ideas and exercises for drafting effective thesis sentences.
