A topic sentence can also be used in a paragraph to make sure the reader understands what the information in the paragraph will be about. A thesis statement is usually used in an expository writing piece. A thesis statement shows the writers opinion or position on a topic and lets the reader know what the writer will be proving or providing support for through out the writing piece.
