Jr./Sr. Seminar, Modern Mexico
Outline of Research Paper
The assignment due on Octboer 10 is to develop an outline of your research paper. Reinforcing your thesis statement or research questions, the outline should help give you a good sense of the scope, shape, and main questions or arguments of your work.
The outline should be about a page long, and should start with a reiteration of the research questions or thesis. You should then indicate the major topics with which your paper will deal in the order you plan to discuss them. For each of these major topics give a brief, general explanation of exactly what you hope to cover under that heading.
