It does not matter much at this stage what order they are in - you can sort that out later. Under each main point, jot down 2 or 3 sub points that go into a bit more detail about that particular aspect of your essay.
Look at what you have read for each of the main points of your essay and work out how you can talk about it in your own words, or in a more informative way. Look at your essay research notes and decide for yourself if the writers have made claims which, in your opinion, lack substance. If necessary, compare different claims and write down which of them is more valid, in your opinion, and explain why to your reader. Remember that each paragraph needs to lead into the next. This smooths out the structure and helps the essay to flow better.
