Chapter 9: Towards the Well-Researched Paper

Try This!


Take the three-storey thesis you developed earlier in this chapter and create an outline based on it. Remember that this outline is not final or binding; it is like a test, a way of discovering whether your current argument has the depth necessary to fill out a six-to-eight-page essay. Don’t worry about research at the moment, but keep it in mind by creating  “research-related considerations” placeholders like those in the sample outline.
