With a partner, create an outline of the final section of Angelos’ article, “Up on Stage.” If you have differences of opinion about how to structure the outline you should preserve them, but you should spend a few minutes at the beginning of the exercise discussing possibilities with your partner before going to work on the outline. If you wish, you may collaborate (work together) throughout the process. As we discussed, remember that the organization of an outline is more than merely listing major points – the structure you use to organize those points and the phrasing you use for each point will shape how the outline represents the text.
