PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teaching the intricacies of outlining can be difficult. This 30-slide PowerPoint focuses on teaching students how to organize information for a research paper. Using a sample thesis on modern technology, this lesson presents the idea of "hierarchy" and shares four steps to creating an outline. A section on parallelism is included at the end of the PowerPoint.

This listing is for one PowerPoint lesson on outlining for research and writing. Be sure to click on the preview to see examples of the slides.

Outlining is a skill that directly supports development of the skills noted in CCSS ELA Literacy Standard 2 in Informational Text , which asks students to determine the main idea of a text, chart its development, and explain its relationship to other ideas.

This item has been tried out in my own middle-school classroom, and students had a much easier time writing their own outlines, thanks to this information.

If you are interested in a PowerPoint lesson that targets outlining for notetaking on informational texts, please check out my listing for Outlining for Notetaking from Informational Texts. I've definitely noticed a benefit to re-teaching outlining just for the purpose of notetaking ... and my colleagues in other content areas have appreciated this when they ask students to outline a chapter or article!

Want them both? I've bundled both PowerPoints together for you here: Two-PowerPoint Bundle: Outlining for Notetaking and Outlining for Research
