A reverse outline is something you do after you have drafted a piece of work or a section. It is a very helpful way to see if what you have written makes sense, if one thing follows from another and if it is all in the right order. It also helps you see if your paragraphs have a main point or not, or if they really are paragraphs.

This post from The Writing Lab at Purdue University explains what reverse outlines are and how to do them.
