The Triple Whammy is a great way to write a topic sentence, or thesis. We start with an opinion statement, then we support our opinion with three different reasons. After getting your Triple Whammy approved by the teacher, continue to write one paragraph to explain each of your three reasons. Finish your essay with a concluding paragraph that reviews your opinion, and the three reasons you gave to support it. Remember, "We've got grit! We don't quit!"
