Effective writers take the time to plan and organize their thoughts before sitting down to write. One of the most effective methods of planning is outlining.
In Module 03, your assignment is to create an outline. You will take the paragraph you wrote in Module 02 and turn it into a five paragraph essay in Module 04. This week you need to develop an outline which lists each step and the details for each step of your process. This outline will be a framework for building your essay.
An outline includes a brief description of what you want to include in each of your paragraphs.
Please click on the link to open the blank Outline Template below to complete this assignment. You may also use the included example to help guide you. There is also a video in the Weekly Support Materials that teaches you how to complete an outline. Remember that you are using the same topic you wrote about in Module Two, but now you are including additional details to describe each step of your process.
Remember that your submission will also be graded for proper grammar, spelling, mechanics, and formatting.
Submit your completed assignment by following the directions linked below. Please check the Course Calendar for specific due dates.
Save your assignment as a Microsoft Word document. (Mac users, please remember to append the “.docx” extension to the filename.) The name of the file should be your first initial and last name, followed by an underscore and the name of the assignment, and an underscore and the date. An example is shown below:
