How to Create a Skeletal Outline for your work

Step 1: Know Your Main Point
Oftentimes the best place to start your writing is with your
thesis statement
, which is the main argument of your essay.

It should be: - Your opinion, not a fact
- Clear and concise
- Relevant to the rest of your paper
Basic Formula for a thesis:
{
My Opinion} because {Point A}, {Point B}, and {Point C}
Basic Structure of an Essay
{Intro. and Thesis Statement}
Saying:
"The roads were icy and slick today. "
= Not a thesis statement.
Instead:
"School should have remained closed
for the entire day because the roads were icy,
the air was frigid, and travel was difficult."
Points A, B, and C are often your main points of evidence in support of your argument and they can double as wonderful topic sentences for your paper.
