Rough Draft outline Below is the proper format to use when writing your rough draft outline. This rough draft outline should be typed up before you turn it in.

You will need to look at the requirements for each paragraph of the research paper before you can come up with the proper sections. Each paragraph is asking for something specific for you to write on. As a result, each one of your main sections should be the main topic for each of the paragraphs. See the example below.
