A topic sentence should give the reader a pretty good idea of what the rest of the paragraph is going to be about. It is normally the very first sentence in a paragraph.
One example from The Scarlet Ibis is, "When he was two, if you laid him on his stomach, he began to move himself, straining terribly." This sentence gives the reader a basic idea about what will follow in the rest of the paragraph -- a description of what happens when the narrator's brother is laid on his stomach
