Note: You may create and / or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of these assignments. Use this outline to take your notes or to paste relevant points/facts from your references. Be sure to add the appropriate citation if you make notes from any outside source. Conduct your research of the main topics (see bold type below) and extract key topics, ideas, facts to support the development of your plan. Place your notes below each section and include the citation with each note. Finally, arrange your notes in a logical, supporting order. When you have completed your research, you can simply use your notes to write out your plan. Whenever you use information from your notes, you will already have the appropriate citation available. Rather than copying and pasting, use the main concepts of your research and then paraphrase those concepts in your own words.
