Then list headings for your main sections and use Roman numerals starting with the Introduction. You will then have other headings to highlight the major points (use Roman numerals). You will create subheadings for all of the major headings in the outline, except the Introduction. Then end with the Conclusion, which will summarize and restate the thesis statement. At the end of the paper, you will have a Reference Page with proper APA reference citations.
