During this step, find common themes in the works you read, and organize the works into categories. Begin to develop a subject level outline with what studies you’ve found, and consider expanding or limiting your search based on the information you found. Write some brief paragraphs outlining your categories, how in general the works in each category relate to each other, and how the categories relate to each other and to your overall theme.
