Question 1: How can a reverse outline assist you in the writing (revision) process? Do NOW Question 2: On a scale of 1-4 (1= very hesitant; 4 = very confident), how confident are you in your ability to revise your work in terms of the quality of your research? Explain your reasoning. I would say 3 because… Transition: We will learn about a revision technique known as the “reverse outline.” It is particularly effective once you have drafted out a piece of writing and want to focus on its structure as you revise. Activity #1: How is a reverse outline organized? Directions: Annotate the source as you read by making notations in the margins. and highlight. Reverse Outlines: A Writer’s Technique for Examining Organization Many writers use a reverse outline to check their work. Reverse outlining is a process whereby you take away all of the supporting writing and are left with a paper’s main points or main ideas, sometimes represented by your paper’s topic sentences. Your reverse outline provides a bullet-point view of your paper’s structure because you are looking at the main points of the paper you wrote. Experienced writers, especially when writing longer papers about a complex subject, need ways to test their drafts for the logical sequence of points: its structure. A reverse outline allows writers to read a condensed version of what they wrote, and provides one good way to examine and produce a successful paper. A reverse outline can help you: ● Determine if your paper meets its goal ● Discover places to expand on your evidence or analysis ● See where readers might be tripped up by your organization or structure 1. Start with a complete draft to have a fuller picture of the plan you carried out. You can use a partial draft to review the organization of the paragraphs you have written so far. 2. Construct the outline by listing the main idea of each paragraph in your draft in a blank document. If a paragraph’s topic sentence provides a succinct version of the paragraph’s argument, you can paste that sentence into the outline as a summary for that paragraph. Otherwise, write a one-sentence summary to express the main point of the paragraph. 3. Number your list for ease of reference. An example of a reverse outline For example: say you are writing a paper for an engineering class in which you are exploring the concept of how humans learn to trust technology through individual consumer choices, and your research involves analyzing several television commercials for Apple computers and products. 1. Ever since Apple’s 1984 Super Bowl commercial, customers have seen Apple as creating technology that appeals to our individuality. 2. Over time, Apple has introduced a variety of devices that appeal to our sense of individuality and in our need to connect with other individuals and to our world. 3. With the introduction of the iPod in 2001, Apple began exploring ways to win consumer trust in technology by focusing on how humans can determine the ways they choose to use the technology they purchase. 4. With the opening of Apple stores, Apple began to offer yet another way to explore our trust issues with technology through talking to friendly individual sales people in clean, well-lit stores. 5. In 2007, Apple rolls out the “Hi, I’m a Mac, and I’m a PC” TV commercials thus showing the funny side of Apple ads. Take a look at this reverse outline above. What do you see? Most sentences address some aspect of how human trust evolves with Apple’s technological developments, and these choices are individual choices. However, sentence (5) stands out: Why? Sentence (5), based on the topic sentence, only treats the humor without connecting the way humor can help us alleviate some of our trust issues with technology as individual consumers. What can you do? As the writer, you may need to revise the paragraph to directly connect with the paper’s argument, or, if you determine that the paragraph is serving an important part of your paper’s argument, then you may merely need to revise topic sentence (5), perhaps like this: ● Topic Sentence #5: In 2007, Apple rolls out the “Hi, I’m a Mac, and I’m a PC” TV commercials, and by promoting their funny side, Apple ads help another generation of consumers get over their “trust issues” with Macs by personifying the choices they make as individual personality types and the technologies they are willing to trust. Activity #2: Can we apply the reverse outline for our background paper? Directions: 1. Review your draft of the background paper and consult the sample reverse outline you just read about the engineering essay to begin revising your essay. 2. You should aim to write one sentence for each paragraph you wrote in the background paper.
