Outline checklist:

Make sure to review all reading materials in this Module before working on your outline. This assignment grade heavily depends on your mastery of the outline format (headings, numerical format, in-text citations, bibliography, etc.), outlining principles, outline format, and the quality of the content (introduction, body, and conclusion). Review Informative Speech Outline.pdf. The outline assignment requirements are specific and slightly different than the example in the reading assignments. Make sure to follow this sample outline as the model. Develop a full-sentence outline on the approved Informative Speech Topic. A good outline for this assignment runs between 4-6 pages.
Apply the three outlining principles (Coordination, Subordination, and Division) in the Body of the Speech. Follow either APA or MLA format and include a complete bibliography.
Review the grading rubric. All work will be graded only once. Make sure to read the instruction and the requirements carefully.
