Annotated Bibliography
The subtopic portion of your outline will be dictated by the type of topic you have chosen.
If your topic is of a historical nature, a chronological development pattern might be your best bet.
If you are analyzing a topic and the issues surrounding it, you may want to choose the climactic/ascending
order pattern, which will start with the smaller factors or arguments and build toward the most important
factor or argument.
If you are comparing or contrasting, you can discuss all elements of Part A first and then all elements of Part B
(longitudinal pattern).
Or, if your topic is too complicated for this approach, you can discuss both A and B together, subtopic by
subtopic (cross-sectional pattern).
