LexTips: Subject Sentence

Posted on: June 9, 2009

The subject sentence is the first sentence in a paragraph. It announces to the reader what the idea or subject is and may also indicate how the paragraph is organized.

As you analyze your work and take steps to improve it, ask yourself these questions:

  • What is the key idea (subject sentence) in each paragraph?
  • Within each paragraph, is the subject sentence first?
  • Do your paragraphs flow in such a way that they develop the material properly?
