Badke Appendix 1

Once my research question came to mind, the hardest thing to begin is an outline. Writing a few scribbles and jotting down a few ideas and personal knowledge related to my question did not make the outline come about, it only made a bunch of ideas get jotted down. In the High School years, I usually wrote my research paper first and went along with an outline. Realizing how unorganized my paper came about, I noticed that an outline at the beginning would have made the paper much easier. Even if I have my ideas jotted down, my organization was the next thing to do. While I was organizing my outline, the order seemed to be fine, but when I wrote the paper, the outline did not make sense. To me, the relation between an outline and the actual paper has to be on point!

    It’s true that an outline is suppose to help you write your paper, however, the reason why some people find it unhelpful is because everyone has a different writing style. The purpose of an outline is to help you focus on what to write about next. Sometime I like doing my paper without an outline because I can just throw in my ideas. But then after rereading it, my paper would look out of focus. I remember in high school I wrote 2 research papers and the first one I wrote was without an outline. When my teacher handed it back graded, she commented on it that it was disorganized. The second paper I handed in was with an outline and I followed the outline and my essay was organized unlike the first one. So through what I have been through, an outline does really help.
