    • Research—Gather Articles
    • Read Articles—Get an idea of what is being discussed about the topic
    • Determine Thesis—Write your argument
    • Determine Outline—Write an outline detailing the sections of your argument.
    • Find Notes for your essay—Find sections, sentences, phrases, paragraphs which can serve as evidence in each section of your research paper.
      • Determine in which part of the outline those notes will most likely be used.
      • Copy (quote or paraphrase) the section onto your note card and label the note card with the section of the outline and the author and page number of the article from which you used the notes.
    • 6        Order the notes and draft your paragraph.
