The purpose of outlining is to organize your ideas so they can be easily read by the audience. 

Tou must complete the Research Paper Outline Document.  First, fill in your thesis statement.  Next, think about how you can logically organize your research.  Once you have categorized your research, create topic sentences that relate to your thesis statement.  Finally, fill in the evidence that relates to each topic sentence.  You can do this by using direct or indirect quotations.
