Outlining: A good model

Click here to listen.

What you are about to hear is about as clearly outlined as you can get! As you watch President Barack Obama speak about education, listen for the main idea, topic sentences, and sub-topics.

  • What are the examples he provides to support his point?
  • What is his thesis?
  • What information does he demonstrate in his conclusion to summarize the information?
  • What transitional phrases did he use to introduce each new topic?

When you can outline clearly, the coherence of your speeches and essays will follow.
