Chapter 1 Section 2 Outline example
The purpose of an outline is to have a quick reference for the information you read in the section,
chapter, book, whatever. The point is that you have written down key ideas, definitions, or summarized
topics so that you remind yourself of things you should have gotten out of the reading. The organization
can be formal- roman numerals used for major sections, A, B, C used for subtopics within those major
sections, 1, 2, 3 after that, then a, b, c; or you can be informal and use subject headings with bullet
points of key concepts. The point is to get the major ideas and definitions ordered in a way that makes
sense for you, ut still gets the information that you need. The following is an example of Chapter 1
