Read the Learning Resources on outlining and make sure you understand them before starting your outline for Paper 1. Putting thought and effort into your outline is an investment in the organization of your ideas for your paper. Using your thesis blueprint—the claim and three warrants—develop a full alphanumeric outline for your five-paragraph essay.
Instructions for Week 3 Discussion:
- Prepare your outline as a Word document.
- Create a post in the discussion forum with a subject line that includes your name and the story you are working with (e.g., Tracy’s outline on “Recitatif”).
- Review at least two of your peers’ outlines and post your feedback. Share your thoughts about their thesis. Point out any areas of confusion or questions.
