Structure and Type of Your Outline
  • THERE ARE TWO MOST COMMON TYPES OF OUTLINES THAT
    ARE USED FOR DIFFERENT PAPERS AND DIFFERENT
    PURPOSES.
  • These are sentence outline and topic outline.
  • The first one is composed using complete
    sentences so it is frequently used for more
    thorough examination of subjects.
  • The second type of outline provides sub points
    and headings in short phrases, therefore it is
    more generalized than the first one.

Structure and Type of Your Outline
  • It is used when the subject includes many
    subsections which need to be studied.
  • Consult your professor on the type of outline you
    should use for your topic.
  • In some cases they recommend to combine them.
  • There are many professors that require writing
    main sections in short phrases and subsections in
    sentences as well.

Elements
  • THE OUTLINE PROVIDES NUMERICAL DEFINITIONS FOR
    ITS ELEMENTS.
  • Series of letters and Figures are to be used.
  • There are several levels which have to be
    represented by different numerals.
  • FOR EXAMPLE, the elements of the first level are
    marked with Roman numerals I, II, III, IV, V and
    so on. The next level uses capital letters for
    representation A, B, C, D, E and so on.

    ITS ELEMENTS.
  • The third level has to be identified by using
    numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on.
  • There might be additional levels in some papers,
    they use different markers.

9
Elements
  • REMEMBER ABOUT THE LENGTH OF YOUR PAPER.
  • FOR EXAMPLE, if your research has to be put on
    more than ten pages, the outline SHOULD BE no
    less than three pages.
  • In case when your paper has four or five pages,
    you need to make a one-page outline.

10
Components of Effective Outlines
  • IT IS RECOMMENDED TO USE SUBJECTS FOR MAIN
    HEADINGS THAT ARE EQUAL IN THEIR IMPORTANCE.
  • The same technique has to be applied for
    subheading as well.
  • Remember that your MAJOR HEADINGS should convey
    more generalized information and the SUBHEADINGS
    should focus on description of details.

11
Components of Effective Outlines
  • FOR EXAMPLE, if you are writing about your
    childhood, use The most exciting experience from
    childhood for your MAJOR HEADING and Trip to
    France when I was 9 years old as a SUBHEADING.
  • Before writing your outline you need to review
    all information for including in the
    introduction, the body and the conclusion.
  • DO NOT START IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT TO INCLUDE.
