Ah, the dreaded outline. Most of us hate the outlines our English teachers made us write. However, when done correctly, outlines can do most of the writing for us.
There are many types and formats when it comes to outlines, but no single format is perfect or the “right” one. The outlines you use should:
-be easy to use
-help you structure and organize your paper
-be effective tools in planning your essay.
