I will start with an introduction, stating the purpose of the article. After that, I will briefly discuss the history of programming languages.
Then, I will give a brief review of iteration with loops, including while loops and do-while loops.
I will end with a conclusion.

Creating an outline for a research paper
Creating an outline for a research paper can be very difficult because you don’t know what you are creating the outline for. You may not even know what the thesis is. You may not even know what you need to write about! Creating an outline for a research paper is more than just creating an outline for any other kind of paper. With an outline for a research paper, you are establishing the direction for your whole paper. Research papers are long and require organization in order to stay on topic and avoid meandering.
Create an outline for a research paper on Organizational Behavior (OB):
I: Introduction (OB)
A: What is OB? What is the scope of OB? What are the main concepts of OB? What are the theories of OB? What are some historical perspectives of OB? How did OB evolve over time? Who are the contributors to OB? (include references)
II: Body (OB)
A: Section 1.1: Theories of OB (you could do this section by referencing all theorists or you could do each theorist separately) Section 1.2: Historical perspectives of OB (you could do this section by referencing all historians or you could do each historian separately) Section 1.3: Main concepts in OB Section 1.4: Other types of OB Section 1.5: References to key literature in OB
