The full sentence outline format is essentially the same as the Alphanumeric outline.
The main difference (as the title suggests) is that full sentences are required at each level of the outline.
Remember: This outline is based on the five–paragraph model.
Expand or condense it according to your particular assignment or the size of your opinion/main idea.
When you build a thesis statement that works for you, ensure that it addresses the assignment.
Finally, you may have to rewrite the thesis statement so that the spelling, grammar, and punctuation are correct.
Like with the previous paragraph, include any evidence–a quotation, statistic, data–that supports this point after the Assertion. Show the reader how this entire paragraph connects back to the thesis statement. Your strongest point should be revealed in the final body paragraph.
Also, if it's appropriate, you can address and refute any opposing viewpoints to your thesis statement here.
