A quick way of writing using the heading model is to pick your headings before you begin to write. This will give you a topic outline in which to create your document. Put these headings in the most effective order depending on your purpose.
At the Beginning: State what you want to get done. What to do?
Examples of Possible Headings: conclusion, recommendation, request, bottom line, executive summary
In the Middle: Give a simple explanation or a list of key points. Why/how to do it?
Examples of Possible Headings: explanation, background, chronological events, reasons, alternatives, analysis, instructions, clarification, attachments, deviations, requirements, test results, benefits, risks, objectives, schedules, responsibilities, changes, questions, problems, solutions, agreements, unresolved issues, discussion summary, pro/con
At the End: Suggest/request urgency that drives Paragraph One. When to do it?
Examples of Possible Headings: deadline, timeline, or schedule with explanation, reason, or consequence
The Heading Model can consist of four or more of these topics. Use these topics as a menu of possible headings for each of the four or more paragraphs.
