    topic sentence

    Is a topic sentence the same as a sub topic? I am trying to write a proper essay to obtain a good mark. I would appreciate a quick and accurate response. Thanks

    Re: topic sentence

    The topic sentence usually occurs early and sets the stage for the entire essay. Subtopics follow and support the topic sentence.
