The Freytag Pyramid is the familiar plot outline for breaking a story into its parts.  I've included a link explaining it.  If you are being asked to write an outline to go along with a literary analysis, I would assume the outline would be to delineate the story, and not your essay.  In this case, use the pyramid shape to identify the setting, rising action, climax, etc.. of the story.
