Outlining is one way to organize information.  
When outlining, use Roman Numerals, capital letters, numbers, and lower-case letters.
--Use Roman Numerals (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, etc.) to identify major subtopics of your overall topic. 
--Use capital letters (A, B, C, D, E, etc.) to identify the minor subtopics of each major subtopic. 
--Use numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.) to identify the major details of the minor subtopics. 
--Use lower-case letters (a, b, c, d, e, etc.) to identify the minor details of the major details.
When outlining, indent to show detail.
