## Section4.3Outlining

• Do each of your claims follow a purposeful pattern or sequence?

• Is this pattern chronological? Logic-based? In order of importance? Compare-contrast?

• Are you giving your audience everything it needs to fully understand your argument?

• Does the order of your claims merely list points or does it culminate toward a larger argument?

• Does your argument naturally follow from the claims you presented, in the order you presented them?
