Extended Essay: Outlines

What goes in the essay outline?

There are two types of outlines: Analytical outlines and Investigative outlines.

Both outlines act as a coat hanger, on which you hang your ideas, evidence, and arguments.

Both outlines use Primary Sources and Secondary Sources.

Both outlines persuade the reader and refer back to the Research Question (RQ).
