Your topic sentence explains to the reader what your eleven sentence paragraph is about. Every good topic sentence:
States your arguement or topic, and
is brief and to the point
Notice how every sentence in the chunk supports the topic sentence.
Every eleven sentence paragraph has 3 main ideas. The main idea supports the topic sentence. You will write three types of sentences to support the main idea:
Main Idea
Fact/Example
Support
The main idea sentence introduces a thought that supports your topic sentence.
The fact/example sentence supports your main idea sentence with a fact, quote, or statistic. This is a detail that cannot be argued against.

Example main ideas for the topic sentence "Middle school students should wear uniforms to school."

Uniforms save money
Uniforms help focus on school work
Uniforms reduce the risk of gang violence.
We will first need to introduce the main ideas using main idea sentences.
One reason middle schoolers should wear uniforms is to save money.
Another reason middle schoolers should wear uniforms is to help them focus on their school work.
The last reason middle schoolers should wear uniforms is to prevent gang violence in the school.
Next, we will support our main idea sentence with a fact or example.
For example, parents will not have to worry about buying name brand clothes for their students, because they can not be worn to school.
When sitting in class, students can focus on the lesson instead of whether or not their new jeans look cool.
Many gangs wear specific colors to represent membership.
Finally, we will explain why our example supports the topic sentence:
Instead they can buy the less expensive uniforms, and save their money for bills and food.
This will help the students get better grades.
Nobody will know who is in a gang, because everybody will wear the same colors.
Now, write your own main ideas. You may create your own topic sentence, or use one of mine.

How to Write an
11 Sentence Paragraph

What is an eleven sentence paragraph?
An eleven sentence paragraph is exactly what it sounds like: a paragraph with eleven sentences. The most important thing to remember about an eleven sentence paragraph is that EVERY SENTENCE SERVES A SPECIFIC PURPOSE!!
The eleven sentence paragraph follows a specific outline:
A. Main Idea
I. Topic Sentence
C. Main Idea
B. Main Idea
1. Fact/Example
2. Support
1. Fact/Example
2. Support
1. Fact/Example
2. Support
We will call this a "chunk" because it is a chunk of information.
D. Clincher
The clincher sentence is the last sentence in your paragraph. Its purpose is to leave the reader with a lasting impression.
Some examples of clinchers would be:
Continue using PowerPoint if and be left in Prezi's dust.
All middle schoolers, from Hawaii to New York, will benefit from uniforms.
If the driving age were to be raised to eighteen, future generations would be protected for years to come.
Finally, put all of your sentences together!
. Middle school students should wear uniforms to school. Money is one reason they should wear uniforms. For example, parents will not have to worry about buying expensive name brand clothes for their students because they cannot be worn to school. Instead they can buy less expensive uniform clothes and use their money for bills and food. Another reason middle school students should wear uniforms is to help them to focus on their school work. While sitting in class the students can focus on the lesson instead of whether or not their new jeans look cool. This will help them to get better grades. The last reason middle schoolers should wear uniforms to school is to prevent gang violence. Many gangs wear specific colors to represent membership. With uniforms, nobody will know who is in a gang because they will all wear the same colors. All middle schoolers, from Hawaii to New York, will benefit from uniforms.
Don't forget to indent!
