Outline- The skeleton of your essay. There is no specific way you must follow to put your outline together. Complete sentences Topics and phrases The outline serves to ORGANIZE your ideas. Creating an outline saves you time, later, in the writing process.
Introduction You use the introduction to welcome the reader into your writing. Hook- reader grabber. State your thesis statement and subtopics.
Body Paragraphs The number of paragraphs in the body of your essay will be defined by the number of subtopics for your thesis statement. For each subtopic (each paragraph) you will add from 3-4 details.
Conclusion This is the closing of your essay. You want to let the reader know that you are done talking. You may re-state your ideas. (highly recommended) In the conclusion you state your final opinion. You DO NOT introduce a new topic at the end of your essay.
