During college I had a professor, Dr.G, who helped me understand what the teachers in High School failed to teach. This way of writing an essay was not crated by Dr. G, but he inspired a way to write an essay faster. Dr. G pointed out the main problem with essays is organization. Hopefully this will help anyone in high school whom has yet to write a proper essay. Also I wrote this because most of my teachers said an essay is "beginning, three topics, end." I find it to be useless and a waste of time. If you get this as an answer from a teacher this ible is like a breath of fresh air.

Step 1: Start With a General Outline

I know everyone says "use an outline." What many forget to mention is DON'T BE DETAILED. Just a few words will do. For example,

topic: dogs
1. friend/companion
2. entertainment
3. reminder to walk 

The picture above is an example from a narrative essay I wrote. it's enough to understand what will be told, but not enough to know exactly what happened.

Done, an Informal Outline. after the informal outline is done move on to the next step.

I had expect more when I read the title of your article. But I still haven't get these things through: What is a model for a well-organized outline (like length of each subtopics, idea development, so on)?
I've always make the detailed structured outline, so it becomes the essay. The length of each topic will depend on how much information you have, and how long the essay needs to be. for example, if I need to write a 10+ page essay I have to dig more and may even preform a study on the subject at hand to get enough. while, a 2 page paper could be made from a article in a magazine. For Idea development I just write anything that comes to mind, about that subject, until something just resonates with me. I hope I have answered your questions. <br>
Thank you for sharing your own experience with me. I will keep that in mind, and i wont forget to say that your information is very helpful for me.:-)
