This week, you will work on using your notes, mind map & flow chart to create an outline of your conflict. Remember outlines are limited to only 1 page, must be bullet points of ideas (not complete sentences). This is the “pre-writing” of your essay but you cannot have any sentences or paragraphs pre-written for your essay.
The outline will help you organize the points and supporting details you plan to use in your essay. And what information will go into each paragraph.
Below you will see the format of the 5-paragraph essay. Use this to help structure your outline. You should find this already in the Summative Research Notes Template document you have. If not, go back to the original template and copy/paste this into YOUR notes.
You can watch this Brainpop video to help you with creating outlines.
You will be allowed to use this 1-page outline during the summative essay writing assessment!
