Outline for a code of ethics paper

I attached project 7 infomation.

Unit IV Outline
The Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper is a significant project for this course. To stay on track, this assignment asks you to create an outline. Please review the Course Project in Unit VII, titled Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper. An outline is a great way to organize the ideas that you want to communicate within a paper, or any form of writing.
For your outline, include the following:
1. Identify the topic. The topic of your paper is important. Try to sum up the point of your paper in one sentence or phrase that is original and topic focused, well developed, and thought provoking. This will help your paper stay focused on the main point.

2. Identify the main categories. What main points will you cover? The introduction usually introduces all of your main points, should flow logically, and is effectively linked to the main topic. Then the rest of paper can be spent developing those points.

3. Create the first category. What is the first point you want to cover? If the paper centers around a complicated term, a definition is often a good place to start. For a paper about a particular theory, giving the general background on the theory can be a good place to begin.

4. Create subcategories. After you have the main point, create points under it that provide support for the main point. The number of subcategories that you use depends on the amount of information you are going to cover; there is no right or wrong number to use as long as each point is compelling or persuasive in support of the main category. Keep in mind there are 15 content areas to the course project.

By convention, each category consists of a minimum of two entries. If your first category is Roman numeral I, your outline must also have a category labeled Roman numeral II; if you have a capital letter A under category I, you must also have a capital letter B. Whether you then go on to have capital letters C, D, E, is up to you, depending on the amount of material you are going to cover. You are required to have a minimum of two of each numbered or lettered categories.
Example:
I. First main category
A. First subcategory
B. Second subcategory
II. Second main category
A. First subcategory
B. Second subcategory
