Read the following paragraphs and write a topic sentence that expresses the main idea of each.
For example, if it is a sport, then some people wonder why cheerleaders must also be concerned with the neatness and uniformity of their appearance. In addition, since cheerleading does not require an opposing group of cheerleaders, some people question whether it can be considered a sport.
Need Help Please.....!!!!

I see only one paragraph.
What do you think the MAIN IDEA (remember, that's singular!) of this paragraph is?

There's more paragraphs, I think the main idea is Cheerleaders.

"Cheerleaders" is one word, not a complete sentence. What is the OVERALL idea about cheerleaders in that paragraph.

people question whether cheerleading is a sport.

Yes, right. Be sure to put a capital at the beginning and a period at the end.

Ok, I need help with this one also.
Some writers like to brainstorm their ideas on a scrap paper before sitting down to write. Others are less intimidated by a blank computer screen or piece of paper, and prefer to dive headfirst into a project. Many students find it useful to begin their work with an outline of ideas that are later developed into complete sentences. A highly unsuccessful method approaching a writing assignment is to wait until the last minute, ask for an extension, and then plagiarize.

What is the OVERALL idea that every sentence in that paragraph is explaining?

Some writers like to brainstorm their ideas different ways.
