Lesson 1 | A view to the whole: reading and outlining

Sketch a roadmap of the whole

Outlining a text consists of...

  1. Discerning the the major themes and where those themes intersect and shift.
  2. Marking the points that divide the major themes.
  3. Giving all of these units a descriptive title.
  4. Drilling down further to discern and label the smaller subunits.
