What the Outline Should Look Like
A formal outline is typed and follows a specific format. Your teacher may request either a topic outline (short phrases) or sentence outline (full sentences with conventional punctuation).

For the subculture paper outline, you will use a proper heading and MLA 2009 format and employ a topic outline (short phrases).

The parts of an outline are typically labeled using this order:

I. Main idea
A. Subtopic
1. Detail of subtopic
2. Another detail
a. Related idea about the detail
b. Another related idea
(1) Supporting fact or related matter
(2) Perhaps another supporting fact
(a) Micro-detail
(b) Another micro-detail
B. Second subtopic
1. Detail of second subtopic
2. Another detail
a. Supporting information for this second detail
b. Added supporting information related to second detail

In general, you may find that you will have different amounts of details for some topics and subtopics than for others. That is acceptable; just seek to keep your descriptions in balance, not overemphasizing some topics at the expense of others.

When you have a part I, there should be at least a part II, and possibly a part III.

When you have an A, there should also be at least a B, and so on. Usually no element should occur singly; when one supporting point is listed, there should be at least one more at that level.
