    evaluating a good topic sentence

    Hello everyone..
    When we will write a paragraph, we have to pay attention to our topic sentence, because it summarizes the content of a paragraph we make. So, anyone knows how to make a good topic sentence? How can we say that it is a good topic sentence or not? is there any rubrics to evaluate it? Your answer will be very helpful to me. Thank you.

    A topic could be a word, a phrase and not necessarily a sentence.

    IMO, a title/topic should give a good indication of the contents of a written piece of work.

    In my opinion, the good topic sentence must be informative & interesting so that the reader will be enthusiastic in reading your paragraph of writing.
