free write warm up
  • What do you think is the state of race relations/equality in America today, the anniversary of the March on Washington?
reverse outlines

We usually think about outlines as a beginning step in the writing process, but we can also use them to help us break down an essay and look at its overall organization and structure.

Sometimes, we get so caught up in what we’re working on, we can’t see the flaws.

A lot of professional athletes, for example, watch footage of their performances after games to analyze their moves and make plans for future practice.

Reverse outlines

What we’re going to do is break the essay back down to it’s simplest form.

I have given you a sample essay. We’ll read it together, and then in pairs, I’ll assign you a paragraph.

Each pair will find the main idea for the paragraph and come put it up on the board.


What this activity accomplishes is to get your head out of the details of your paragraphs so you can just look at structure.

For homework, I want you to do this activity on your own essay draft. When you turn in your completed essay next week, please turn in your rough draft with my comments, the reverse outlining that you do, and your final draft.


For this first assignment, I have asked you to rely on the course text for your supporting evidence.

  • You still have to cite all of your sources, in text and in a works cited page.
  • You are using sources that are in a collection with an editor. I have provided examples on the next slide.

All of the handouts we’re using this semester come from this book:

    • Ousborne, Jeff. Reading in Pop Culture: A Portable Anthology. Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2013. Print.
  • Essays in Pop Perspectives (and the handouts, but using the proper book)need to be cited like this:
    • Bernstein, Nell. “Goin’ Gangsta, Choosin’ Cholita.” Pop Persectives: Readings to Critique Contemporary Culture. Ed. Laura Gary-Rosendale. Boston: McGraw-Hill, 2008. 125-132. Print.
  • Anything from the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay (the third essay), should look like this:
    • Chabon, Michael. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. New York: Random House, 2012. Print.
