Ideas are insightful and show critical analysis of the topic.All parts of your outline should be cited and should be written in complete, Standard English sentences.This outline forms the framework for your paper, so the more specific and detailed your outline, the less work you have on your first draft.Make sure to work from this basic outline as you write your paper. If your paper alters in form as you write, stop and change the format of your outline, so that you are still working from an outline.
