Research papers can be daunting. Sometimes even the idea of starting to think about writing a paper can stop you from even starting. One way to get over the writer’s block is to create an outline. An outline is just the building block of your paper. It is where you start to put your ideas down on paper in some type logical order to help guide you in your research and writing of the course project.
Outlines are an important and underutilized writing tool. A strong outline creates a “road map” that can be used to keep your topic and message on track. The length of your outline will be determined by the components of your proposal topic.
For this class, the course project is based on an outline that you will create and submit in the FINAL PROJECT only (Module 05). This week you will have an opportunity to create a practice outline that is based on a library article that is provided. In this assignment, read the provided article and create an outline of it. The next step will be for you to write your own outline (using the format listed below) to help you write your course project. The course project outline will be a part of the final course project grade.
Remember, you will be writing two outlines in this course. The first one will be here in this assignment; this is an outline of a library article.
The second one will be done separately and will be specifically about your course project topic. You will submit the second outline as a piece of the final project in Module 05.
For this assignment, follow a traditional outline format using the information below as a guide:
