Help me create a topic sentence for my topic
Im writing a paper on the origins of World War I, and I want to talk about how the alliance system, political rivalries, and militarization contributed to the start of the war. If these are going to be my three main topics, what could my topic sentences be for each section? Could you give me three potential topic sentences to use in my paper?
There are a number of ways of going about creating topic sentences. One option is to use your first and most important topic as an introduction to the three topics. For example, you could say, Of the three factors contributing to the start of World War 1, the alliance system was the most important. There is also a more direct option. In this case the topic sentence would be something like: One of the most important causes of World War 1 was the alliance system. If you take this approach the other two topic sentences are quite simple. The second topic sentence would be something like: A second important cause of World War 1 was political rivalries between nations. This makes the third topic sentence even easier. It would be something like: A third important cause of World War 1 was militarization. If you want to make these topic sentences slightly more complicated you could add a word like geopolitical to make them a little more specific. For example, the first topic sentence could be: One of the most important geopolitical causes of World War 1 was the alliance system.
