Organization refers to the order you want to put your ideas in a paper. The organizational pattern you use should fit your subject and purpose.
Time order – presents a sequence of events
Space Order – presents, most typically, a description of a person, place or thing.
Logical Order – presents ideas in most effective way, either from general to specific, for example, or least important to most important.
In much of your writing, you will use a combination of the following logical orders, along with perhaps special and time order.
