Different kinds of plans

■ A simple plan. Only the main points are jotted down in an order that best serves the argument and information sharing of the paper.

■ A complete plan. Below the main points of the simple plan, you can list more specific points. Generally you do not have to be over-specific, but this is a way of making sure that the detailed points you want to make are not forgotten.

■ A question plan. In these you write down the questions that you are trying to answer at each stage of your work. This form helps you to understand the reader's position and may help focus the plan and organize your strategy.

■ A sentence plan. A simple sentence summarising the main point of each paragraph and section. These give you direction, and can sometimes form the first or 'topic' sentences of your paragraphs.
