What kind of paper do you have to write?  If you could share that, we can suggest ideas for a thesis.

If you need main points for an essay on "The Lottery" first start by explaining the ritual, explain which characters perform the ritual, who runs the ritual, etc. Then analyze the characters who are in the ritual and the town (simply state who they are, their reputation in the town, their job, etc.). Then finally, the third point of your outline could consist of themes in the story and examples of how the theme is demonstrated in various instances in the story, that way no matter what you are asked to analyze, you have information on it.
