iii. live together in pods
B. Dolphins in zoos (captivity)?
i. Zookeepers steal the babies and raise them in aquariums
ii. This is done so spectators (visitors to the zoo) can watch them perform tricks

i. "Dolphins are naturally wild animals that should be kept in their natural habitat and be allowed to live freely. Keeping dolphins in captivity harms their well-being and is dangerous to their development."
II. Why is it important for dolphins to maintain their freedom
A. Dolphin's ability to display emotion (both positive and negative)
i. Dolphins smile when happy and cry when sad
a. Proven that they smile more in the wild than in captivity (Williams 2006)
ii. Crying increases the most when babies are taken away from their mothers (Peterson 2003)
B. Dolphins live longer lives in the wild (Williams 2006) This outline only represents my introduction (1st paragraph) and the beginning of my 2nd paragraph. I have a lot more to say to prove my thesis statement, but I just wanted to show you an example of how to start your outline. The steps to help you through this process can be found on Ms. Madrigal's Web Backpack. Don't worry, Ms. Madrigal will be there to guide you through the entire process. Good luck! www.kslib.info A=Abstract. It's just a short summary of the actual article F=Full Text. It's the entire article. Look for the F. If you find one with an A, and it's really good, don't discard it because it might be possible to find it with the help of the librarian. Academic Search Premier is a great database. Check out the different databases in this section to see which ones best suit your needs and how many results are found. In my search for "dolphins in captivity" there are 169 hits in the EBSCO Academic Search Premier database. On Ms. Crawford's Web Backpack, there are links to the EBSCO Host Databases, the Encyclopedia Britannica, the ABC-CLIO Databases, and the SMSD Online Catalog. Check out her website for helpful links and information.
