Topic Sentences and Signposting. Topic sentences and signposts make an essay's claims clear to a reader. Good essays contain both. ... They show the relationship of each paragraph to the essay's thesis, telegraph the point of a paragraph, and tell your reader what to expect in the paragraph that follows.
