Outline Template
A full sentence that gets the audience’s attention.
This full sentence introduces the topic by stating the thesis.
This part shows your credibility to speak on the topic and/or makes the topic
relevant to your audience
Finally, this sentence provides a preview the three main points.
This sentence makes a declarative statement and serves as the first of three main
A. This subpoint is one full sentence and serves as the evidence to support the
claim made in your main point. It should come from one of the sources and
include an APA in-text citation that looks like (Abendschein, 2017).
B. This second subpoint provides more support to the main point. It too needs to
come from one of your sources and include an in-text citation (Dewes, 2016).
Transition: A transition statement connects main points one and two and makes the
speech flow together.
The second main point is logically related to the first.
A. Subpoint One of your second main point follows the same guidelines
discussed in subpoints of your first main point (Barth, 2020).
B. Subpoint Two of your second main point follows the same guidelines
discussed in subpoints of your first main point.

Transition: A transition statement connects main points two and three and makes the
speech flow together.
Main point three is your third claim about the topic, based on insights gathered
from your research.
A. Subpoint One of your second main point follows the same guidelines
discussed in subpoints of your first main point.
B. Subpoint One of your second main point follows the same guidelines
discussed in subpoints of your first main point.
Transition: A transition statement continues the flow of the speech by signally to the
audience that you are moving on from main point three to the conclusion
The first part of the conclusion reviews the thesis/central idea
The second part of the conclusion reviews the three main points from the speech.
Finally, the concluding device provides closure to the speech by leaving your
audience with an impactful statement, question, quote, etc.
