HOW DO I MAKE MY TOPIC OUTLINE?
Break down your subject. You should have 4 to 7 subcategories (not counting the introduction and conclusion) that you will need to address as you take on your paper. As you research, you may want to add new topics to your outline and that’s fine, but you want to keep an updates outline for yourself as you work to help organize your research and thinking about the topic.
You also need to think about the appropriate order in which you will want to address these sub categories within your subject. In general, you should think about organizing subtopics chronologically and additionally you want to address broader more introductory or background topics first and the most specific topics at the end.
Example One (can not use example)
Subject: Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii
Introduction – general introduction of subject or issue
General Intro – Kilauea, what is it?
Hawaiian Islands Effects of climate on weathering
Big Island Formation
Conclusion – Summary of main ideas and a place to include your opinion.
