A topic sentence is the most important sentence in a paragraph. Sometimes referred to as a focus sentence, the topic sentence helps organize the paragraph by
summarizing the information in the paragraph. In formal writing, the topic sentence is usually the first sentence in a paragraph (although it doesn't always have to be).

Purpose of the Topic Sentence

A topic sentence essentially tells what the rest of the paragraph is about. All sentences after it have to give more information about the sentence, prove it by offering facts
about it, or describe it. For example, if the topic sentence concerns the types of endangered species that live in the ocean, then every sentence after that needs to expound
on that subject.

Topic sentences also need to relate back to the thesis of the essay. The thesis statement is like a road map that will tell the reader or listener where you are going with this
information or how you are treating it.

Topic Sentences and Controlling Ideas

Every topic sentence will have a topic and a controlling idea. The controlling idea shows the direction the paragraph will take.

Here are some examples:

Topic Sentence: There are many reasons why pollution in ABC Town is the worst in the world.
The topic is pollution in ABC Town is the worst in the world and the controlling idea is many reasons.

Topic Sentence: To be an effective CEO requires certain characteristics.

The topic is To be an effective CEO and the controlling idea is certain characteristics.
Topic Sentence: There are many possible contributing factors to global warming.
The topic is "contributing factors to global warming" and the controlling factor is "many reasons."

Topic Sentence: Fortune hunters encounter many difficulties when exploring a shipwreck.
The topic is exploring a shipwreck and the controlling idea is many difficulties.

Topic Sentence: Dogs make wonderful pets because they help you to live longer.
The topic is "dogs make wonderful pets" and the controlling idea is "because they help you to live longer."

Topic Sentence: Crime in poverty-stricken areas occurs as a result of a systemic discrimination.

The topic is "crime in poverty stricken areas" and the controlling idea is "systemic discrimination."

Topic Sentence: Teen pregnancy may be prevented by improved education.

The topic is "teen pregnancy may be prevented" and the controlling idea is "improving education."

Topic Sentence: Cooking requires a number of different skills.

The topic is "cooking" and the controlling idea is "many different skills."

Topic Sentence: It is important to be ready before buying a house.

The topic is "before buying a house" and the controlling idea is the importance of being ready.
Topic Sentence: Graduating from high school is important for many different reasons.
The topic is "graduating from high school" and the controlling idea is "many different reasons."
Topic Sentence: Having a first child is difficult because of the significant adjustments in your life.
The topic is "having a first child" and the controlling idea is "significant adjustments in your life."
Topic Sentence: Remodeling a kitchen successfully requires research and a good eye.
The topic is "remodeling a kitchen" and the controlling idea is "requires research and a good eye."

As you can see, the topic sentence provides a focus for the reader or listener. It tells what the paragraph is about. The controlling idea helps the audience understand what
you are saying.

Topic sentences can be about almost anything, as long as they set the tone for the paragraph and relate back to the thesis or the main idea of the paper.


How Can I Keep a Meaningful Journal?

Spencer Jensen

Transcript of How Can I Keep a Meaningful Journal?

Decide on a Specific, Convenient Time and Place to Write

Write Stories and Record Experiences
Record How the Lord has Blessed Us
Record Reality-The Good and the Bad
One of the first steps to keeping a journal is to figure out the basics.
When and how am I going to keep a journal? Some people like to keep their journal on a computer and some in a actual, paper journal.
Some write topically, and some write in day to day experiences.
Set a regular schedule for yourself. It's good to have a daily, or at the very least weekly, opportunity to write, so we can write while the experiences and
thoughts are still fresh in your mind. Make sure you include the important details, and remember the old saying: 'Failing to plan is planning to fail.'
Count the Fs
How many Fs are in this sentence?
Finished files are the result
of years of scientific study and plenty of frugal planning
How many did you get?
There are seven! Many people ignore the Fs in 'of'. Somehow, there is something in those little words that makes them easily overlooked. Similarly, some
people overlook the importance of writing in a journal.
Don't make that mistake!
One thing that is helpful is to write down stories and experiences things that have happened to all of us. For example, most of us could write a personal
experience based on these questions:
-When was a time the lord answered your prayers?
-When was a time you did a service to somebody?
-When was a time that your testimony was strengthened?
-When was a time that a scripture helped you through a problem?
-When was a time your followed a prompting from the holy ghost, and how did it bless you?
Hey Guys!
Think keeping a journal isn't manly enough for you? check out the Manly Book of Experiences, and start recording in it to show your posterity you were a
true man.
Write Feelings
One way to make our journals more meaningful is to write down how we feel, not just what we did. A journal that sounds like a robot-"Got up, got dressed,
went to school, took test." -Lacks meaning. Compare to this journal entry:
"I took my dreaded algebra test today, Man, math is tough for me. But guess what? All my studying paid off and I pulled an A! I'm glad I didn't give up on
this's paying off." Writing how we feel helps future readers get a taste of our lives. Writing down feelings can happen in a lot of ways. For
example, Try writing journal entries based on these questions:
-When was a time you felt afraid?
-How do you feel about your family?
-When was a time you were embarrassed?
-What does it feel like for you to be led by the Holy Ghost?
-When was a time you felt like you were in the presence of a prophet
-when was a time you felt loved?
-How are you feeling today, right now?
Taking time to write down our thoughts and feelings will often spark other insights into your life experiences that you may have forgotten. Lets make sure
we don't get so caught up in writing about the facts of our day-to-day life that we forger to record how we feel about life.
One thing we can always write about is how the lord has blessed us. President Wilford Woodruff said, "Should we not have respect enough to God to make
a record of those blessings which [God] pours out upon us...? I think we should."
President Henry B. Eyring suggested:
"As you start to write, you could ask yourself, 'How did God bless me today?' if you do that long enough and with faith, you will find yourself remembering
blessing. And sometimes, you will have gifts brought to your mind which you failed to notice during the day, but which you will then know were a touch of
God's hand in your life. '
Tonight, ask yourself, "How did God bless me today? pause and think about this, and write what comes to mind."
Sometimes we are tempted to record only the good, positive events of our lives, leaving out anything that would appear less than perfect. Maybe we are
trying to make ourselves appear more than we really are. We need to keep in mind that "Truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were."
Most of our lives are not all sunny days and blue skies. If we record our journals to make them appear as such, Then those who read them down the road
wont get a true feel for the events that shaped and molded us, nor will they be able to learn how to overcome their own adversity by learning from us.
President Spencer W. Kimball, one of the great journal-keepers of our time, said, "Begin today and write...your goings and your comings, your deeper
thoughts, your achievements, and your failures, your associations, and your triumphs, your impressions, and your testimonies. We hope you will do
this...for this is what the Lord has commanded, and those who keep a personal journal are more likely to keel the lord in remembrance in their daily lives."
And, to Recap;
-Write feelings.
-Decide on a specific time to write.
-Write stories and and record experiences
-Record how the Lord has blessed you.
-Record reality-the good and the bad.

wikiHow to Write a Journal Entry

Three Methods:Sample EntriesJournaling for YourselfJournalism for SchoolCommunity Q&A

A journal can be a chronicle of your daily activities, a summary of your most intimate thoughts, or simply a way to keep yourself on-track while you
complete an assignment. To write a journal entry for yourself, consider writing about the events of your day, secrets you need to get off your chest, or
random trains of thought. To write a journal entry for school, read the assignment carefully, reflect on what you've learned, and write your analysis of the
information being reviewed. The exact rules of why, when, where and how you write are probably yours to determine in either case, but these points are
usually good places to start.

Journaling for Yourself

Find something that can become your journal. You can use a notebook, legal pad, blank book, word processor, journaling application like Red Notebook, or you can
also buy journals with locks at Staples or whatever you like for your journal. Just make sure that it contains blank pages you can write on, and that the pages are bound
up so they won't scatter and get lost.

Find a writing tool. If you chose to use a word processor in Step 1, you can skip this step. If you're using an actual book, locate a pen you like. (You can use pencil to
write in your journal, but it will fade dramatically over time.) Some journal-keepers have a particular brand of pens that they prefer, or they favor a certain style (such as
gel pen over ballpoint). Either way, your writing implement should feel comfortable in your hand and help you write at a pace you enjoy.

Set up a routine. You might want to bring your journal with you wherever you go, so that you can write down your thoughts as they strike you. You could choose a
particular time each day to sit down and clear your head. Whatever you decide, make it a habit. Journaling as part of a routine will make you more likely to stick with it.

Choose a setting that's conducive to writing. Place yourself in an environment that makes you feel like writing, whether it's the privacy of your own room or a busy
coffee shop. If you're not sure where you like to write, try out a few different locations at different times during the day.

Date your entry. This may seem a real drag, but this is the only real rule when it comes to keeping a journal. Youll be amazed just how useful having each entry dated
can be.

Start writing. As you begin your journal entry, write down your thoughts as they occur to you. If you're stumped, start out by discussing what you did during the day, or
any major epiphanies you've had lately. These topics might lead you to other interesting topics about with you can write.
o Try to see your journal as "thinking on paper." Your thoughts don't need to be perfectly constructed or written with the right grammar and punctuation.
Instead, try to think of your journal as a space where you can write out and organize your thoughts and feelings.
o Don't feel self-conscious. Unless you're planning on showing your journal to someone else, remember that it's just for your eyes and don't worry about
what other people think. Feeling free to express yourself is a vital part of keeping a meaningful journal.

Be creative. Try incorporating different styles of writing into your journal, such as lists, poems, screenplays or stream-of-consciousness writing. You could also include
artwork such as sketches, drawings and collages.

Know when to stop. You might stop writing as soon as you feel like you've exhausted your thoughts, or after you've reached a certain page limit. Whatever you choose,
stop before you feel completely drained - remember, you want to have enough energy to come back to your journal and write again.

Reread what youve written, if you can. Either read it directly after making the entry or set aside a time to read your past entries. You can potentially gain a lot of
insight from going over your journal.

Keep writing. The more dedicated you are to your journal, the more valuable it becomes. Find ways to make journalism habit, and keep doing it.

Method 2
Journalism for School

Understand the assignment. Have you been assigned to keep a journal of your personal experiences, or a journal of your thoughts as you read a certain book? Whatever it is, make sure you read and
reread the assignment so that you understand it well.

Stick to a schedule. You'll probably need a set number of entries in your journal in order to pass the assignment. Instead of trying to write them all the night before the journal is due, try to keep a
schedule. If you forget to write your entries, set an alarm on your phone, or ask someone else to remind you periodically.

Date each entry. Start each journal entry by noting the date. If you want to note what time it is when you start writing, you can do that, too.

Start writing the entry. One or two lines beneath the date, start writing your journal entry. Here are some suggestions to consider if you're writing the journal for a school assignment:
o Reflect on what you've learned. How do you plan to apply it to your own life?
o Quote pieces of the book or assignment that were meaningful to you. After you've included the quote, write why you like it.
o Discuss your thoughts or impressions about the assignment. For instance, if you're supposed to write the journal as you read a book, you could talk about your reaction to a certain
character or chapter.

Write in first-person. Because a journal is meant to be a personal narrative, you should probably write it from a first-person perspective. That means using "I", "me", "mine" or "my" in your sentences.

Make sure each entry is long enough. If your assignment specifies how long each entry is supposed to be, stick to that number. If not, shoot for about 200 to 300 words per entry.

Conclude each entry with a closing thought. As you're wrapping up your entry for the day, it might be nice to summarize your thoughts in a sentence or two. For
instance, you could start with "What I've really learned today is..." or "I'd like to spend more time thinking about..."

JOURNAL - A daily written record of (usually personal) experiences and observations. It is actually a Diary.

January 12, 2012

Today I started my research on Lewis Carroll for our Authors Research Paper. Im glad I chose Lewis Carroll, because Alice in Wonderland has always been
one of my favorite books. Im excited to learn more about him as I do more research.

January 14, 2012

Today I found a lot of books at the library on Lewis Carroll and read some more interesting things I had no idea about! The thing Im most interested in
right now is the real Alice that his Alice books are based on.

January 21, 2012

My paper has been coming along great so far! Im not worried so much about structure right now, because Im still doing research and think that once I
know exactly where I want my paper to go, itll basically write itself.
