Template of Outline for Argument
Thesis Statement–For your argument essay, you need to make sure you are addressing both your side of the argument and the opposition’s. Your thesis statement should be developed and detailed. It should be clear from reading your thesis statement what you intend to discuss in your paper. Example: 
Instead of: “I believe that the drinking age should be lowered to 18.”
Use this: “While MADD argues that the drinking age should remain 21-years-old in the United States, each state should consider lowering the drinking age to 18 because 18-years-old are considered adults in every other way.”
I. Topic Sentence–Include a specific topic sentence for what you plan to use in your paper. Your topic sentence should help to prove/support your thesis statement. The topic sentence should also be a statement and not a question. 
A. Quote/evidence to support the topic of this paragraph. You need to have a quote or other evidence for each of your body paragraphs. You should have at least two, but you can have more than two. 
B. Quote/evidence to support your topic. (When you have an A, you need a B). 
II. Topic Sentence–Again, when you have a I, you need a II. Also, remember, all of your body paragraph should prove/support your thesis statement. This helps to ensure your stay on one topic throughout your paper. Make sure you focus on your thesis statement. 
A. Quote/evidence to support the topic of this paragraph. Make sure you format this properly as an in-text citation. It will help both you and me. It will help me see that you understand how to format, and it will help you when you go to write your paper. 
1. You can include more details if you would like. 
2. If you do, you need to make sure you have a 1 and a 2. 
B. Quote/evidence to support the topic of this paragraph. 
C. Quote/evidence to support the topic of this paragraph. 
III. Topic Sentence–When you are creating your outline, it will help you if you use the outlining formatting that is built into most programs, including Microsoft Word. “Creating an Outline in Microsoft Word 2016” by Simon Sez (Video 6:52) will help you to develop your outline to make sure you have it aligned properly. 
A. Quote/evidence to support the topic of this paragraph. 
B. Quote/evidence to support the topic of this paragraph.

C. Provide the counterclaim with rebuttal here: (This section needs to contain a well-developed paragraph(s)

VI. Conclusion of your essay – You do not need to include a conclusion paragraph in the outline, but you will have to have one for the final draft. Read more about it on the Canvas page regarding Drafting, Revising, and Editing

Works Cited
You need to include the sources that you are citing in the outline, which should include all of the sources that you intend to use for your essay. 
As you have been working on them over the last couple of assignments, please be sure that you have them presented correctly here: in MLA 9 formatting, in alphabetical order, and with a hanging indent.
