If you have time and opportunity, show it to your instructor to revise. Otherwise, you may estimate it yourself.
A. Identify Topic: put it in your own words to show your individual understanding
B. Main Points: What are the main ideas you want to convey or need to convince your audience?
C. Arrange your main points in a logical order and list them in the outline
D. Create sub-points beneath each major idea
E. Evaluate your outline. Look over what you have written. Does it make logical sense? Is each point suitably fleshed out? Is there anything unnecessary?
