You and a partner should choose three questions.

For each question, go through the steps of outlining the essay.

You’ll need 6 sheets of paper and a partner. The activity listed below is for one of your three questions attempted. You’ll do this three times, once for each question you chose.
On a piece of paper:

  1. brainstorm everything you know about the subject for one minute

  2. look at your list and create two categories based on the needs presented by the question

  3. title the two categories

  4. title the whole essay

On another piece of paper, create an outline that shows:

  1. The opening sentence of each paragraph (Thesis paragraph and two main body paragraphs)

  2. a list of facts you’ll be using to prove in each of the main body paragraphs

  3. the entire opening paragraph

  4. a dash next to each fact with the significance of each

Share your work with another pair, seeing how quickly they can guess your questions.
