What is an outline?
  • An outline is a part of the writing process
    called Pre-Writing.
  • It is a list that outlines all of the information
    that you would like to include in your paper.
  • The list helps you to put all of your information
    in order before you begin writing.

It is the best way to get your mind
UNJUMBLED
when writing any major paper!

How does it do that?
  • An Outline Organizes The Major Parts Of Your
    Essay
  • Your Thesis Statement-The sentence that tells
    your reader your ultimate point and what they
    should expect.
  • You Major Points-The facts that you are using to
    prove your main point.
  • Your Supporting Details-The examples, facts,
    quotations, etc. that further explain and back up
    each major point. You should have several for
    each Major Point.
  • Your Transitions-The statement or information you
    will use to transition form one major point to
    the next. This stops your paper from sounding
    jumpy or disorganized.
  • Concluding Thoughts-Any thoughts that you would
    like to include at the close of your paper to
    wrap things up and tie it all together. NEVER
    INCLUDE NEW FACTS OR INFORMATION IN YOUR
    CONCLUSION!
