Title: Making a Formal Outline


1
Making a Formal Outline
  • English 9
  • Mrs. Zaso

2
Formal Outline
  • A short skeleton of a longer paper that
  • Provides overview of organization
  • Prepares paper structure
  • Shows relationship of ideas

3
Why Outline?
  • Tests strength and logic of your ideas
  • Organizes your information
  • Recognizes your main points
  • Identifies gaps in research

4
Preparing an Outline
  • Roman Numerals Main points
  • (I, IV, X, etc.)
  • Capital Letters Subdivision of main points (A,
    B, C, etc.)
  • Numbers Next level of subdivision (1, 2, 3,
    etc.)
  • Lowercase Letters Final level of subdivision
    (a, b, c, etc.)

5
Preparing an Outline
  • Use a complete sentence at ALL levels
  • Use parallel language
  • Animals and humans do not share identical DNA.
  • B. Modern technology can effectively test
    products.

6
Preparing an Outline
  • Each line should contain ONE idea ONE sentence!
  • Each subdivision should contain ONE idea ONE
    sentence!
  • Subdivisions should SUPPORT or provide DETAIL to
    the main idea.

7
Keeping it Balanced
  • If you have a I, you must have a II
  • If you have an A, you must have a B
  • If you have a 1, you must have a 2
  • If you have an a, you must have a b

8
Sample Outline (Framework)
  • I.
  • A.
  • 1.
  • 2.
  • B.
  • II.
  • A.
  • 1.
  • a.
  • b.
  • 2.
  • B.

9
Outline Framework
  • All outlines will NOT look the same
  • Previous slide is a SAMPLE, not a GUIDELINE
  • Main ideas and subdivisions will vary by topic
    and amount of information

10
Help Yourself!
  • Be clear and concise!
  • Stick to the point!
  • Organize nowless work later!
