Master Academic Writing: Learn about two parts of the topic sentence of a paragraph: a topic + a controlling idea

The topic sentence of a paragraph consists of two essential components: the topic and the controlling idea. The topic, which is the overarching subject of the paragraph, provides the reader with a clear understanding of what the paragraph will discuss. The controlling idea, on the other hand, narrows down the focus, presenting the writer's specific stance, opinion, or main point regarding the topic. Together, these elements form a concise and informative statement that guides the reader through the paragraph's content.
