154 Outlining Learning the Skill
When studying written material, outlining helps you identify main ideas and group together related facts. In writing, it helps you put information in a logical order.  There are two kinds of outlines–formal and informal. An informal outline is similar to taking notes. You write only words and phrases needed to remember ideas. Under the main idea, jot down related but less important details. This kind of outline is useful for reviewing material before a test. Click the mouse button or press the Space Bar to display the information. SW Skill Builder 2

155 Outlining Learning the Skill (cont.)
A formal outline has a standard format. In a formal outline, label main heads with Roman numerals, subheads with capital letters, and details with Arabic numerals. Each level must have at least two entries and should be indented from the previous level. All entries use the same grammatical form. For example, if one entry is a complete sentence, all other entries at that level must also be complete sentences. SW Skill Builder 3

156 Outlining Learning the Skill (cont.)
When outlining written material, first read the material to identify the main ideas. In textbooks, section heads provide clues to main topics. Next, identify the subheads. List details that support or explain subheads underneath the appropriate subhead. SW Skill Builder 3
