The purpose of the capstone outline is to help you collect and organize your thoughts in order to compose your Capstone Paper. Using the Ashford Writing Center example, create a seven- to ten-paragraph outline of your Capstone Paper. Each paragraph must follow the format for a traditional APA outline. In the Writing Center, use the sample outline (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. as a template for your outline. Be sure to include a title page and a reference page in APA format with your outline. The outline must also include an opening paragraph, your thesis statement, and a concluding paragraph.
The paper must be at least three pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least six scholarly resources, three of which can be found in the Ashford University Library, to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
