Guide to Outline a Critical Essay
This outline is divided into five parts. The first part describes the procedure for writing a critical essay. It should be read by those who have never written one before while the second and third parts are for experienced writers only.
The fourth section provides some extra details that are specific to this essay. They are given in parentheses at the appropriate place in the outline, but they can also be found under " Details ."
In your introduction you might refer briefly to: (details) Then you usually start with an introductory paragraph of three or four sentences which makes it clear why you think this topic is important and how it relates to other things you've studied (e.g., compare/contrast, etc.). For example:
Then you can go on to state the main points of your essay in a few lines each. Even if you are writing about two or more topics, it's best not to write separate paragraphs for them; instead, present all your points together in one paragraph.

Then – in the body paragraph(s) – you build up the support for your argument by first presenting your position and then discussing it through the use of evidence.
In conclusion, you can offer a summary of what you wrote in the body paragraph(s) so that your audience can easily relate what they have just read to what was discussed and defended earlier on in this section, while at the same time stating how your argument relates to other debates in this area of study or beyond (what other scholars agree with you about or not).

If you have no idea how one should be formatted properly try to look into some books dealing with academic writing (most university libraries have a copy). If information about formatting is not included in the assignment sheet seek help from someone who knows how to do it accurately (e.g., use Google or Bing for further research) and/or ask your teacher for additional instructions.
