Outline Academic Essay
Edited by Hotelier, Rushell, Eng, priya and 1 other
Hello! Thank you for watching VisiHow! Today, we will be discussing with you a three-part series on how to create an outline for an academic essay. This is the first part. We will be discussing the introduction.
- 1To begin, our paper does need a title.The title does not necessarily need to be created before we begin writing. If we are not good with coming up with titles for our paper, we can usually create the title in the middle or after we have written the entire paper. It's one of the last things we can actually do. We just have to keep in mind that we don't have to come up with the title before we begin the writing process.Advertisement
- 3At the beginning of our essay or outline, we need an introduction.Before writing the introduction, we need to write the capital letter "A", slightly indented. We need to write an exciting opening. We need something that's going to keep the reader interested in learning more. We want him to get past the introduction and read the rest of our paper. An exciting opening can be a story, a statistic or figure, or a historical event. The opening can take many forms, depending on what the topic of the paper is. The opening needs to capture the attention of our audience with the statement.
- 5After we've made the thesis statement, we can put the letter "C" and provide a brief overview on our supporting points.These will be the points that we've selected to enhance the information that we've provided in the thesis. What we want to do is to make our argument and then give a number of points stating the reason for the argument. The number of points may depend upon how long the paper is. Generally, three supporting points are enough. In longer papers, we can go more into detail that is more convincing for our argument. We provide more support with detail than with points, which may crowd the paper.
This does conclude the tutorial on how to begin outlining an academic essay with an introduction. This is the first part out of three parts. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please leave them in the space below.

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today, we're working on a 3 part series on how to outline an academic essay. This is part 2 of 3 that will given about the body of your essay. We're going to begin part 2 after the introduction. The introduction was part 1, which is Roman numeral I.
- 3This will be for "Point 1", "Point 2" and "Point 3".If we have a longer paper, for instance we have done papers form 5 pages to up to 25 pages in length, generally, we do not continue to add supporting points. This might overcrowd the paper, but we do go into more detail with the supporting points that we have for a shorter paper, which will enhance our argument.
- 4We can provide our supporting details by indenting slightly on the line below each point, and making a lowercase "a" and "b" for each point.We can even have 3 points by adding a lowercase "c" here as well. It depends on how detailed we would like our outline to be. This is intended to help us better organize and structure our academic essay to make the writing process easier.
