your own words, what do you want to write about?
will be your main point?
information will be included in the introduction?
3-4 supporting topics that you think will be effective for your argument.
(What ideas, categories, examples will be used to support your thesis?)
5. What will be the best sources, for
this topic? What keywords will you use for your research? Will you interview or
survey people? Will you rely on personal experience?
will each sub-topic be linked together so that your essay flows in a
direct and focused manner? Is a “straight-forward” essay format
appropriate, or should you break the content into sub-chapters?
elements from the body will be revisited for the conclusion? What expanded
thought will be used to finish the essay so that there is final closure
and understanding of your main idea?
