如果你贊成題目立場，你可以以 “Firstly / To begin with / First / My first (and most important point) is + Topic Sentence” 為引子，輔以現實生活的例子或相關的數據來加強你的論點。
在寫完第一個論點之後，記得開啟新的段落，使用提示字眼 “Secondly / Second / Next / Furthermore…” 提醒讀者你已經轉向下一個論點。
示範：Whether students should get tattoos or not？的第一個正方論據
Firstly, getting a tattoo can be a form of self-expression for students. Tattoos can represent a person's beliefs, values, and personality, and they can be a way for students to express their individuality. By getting a tattoo, students can create a unique piece of art that is personal to them and can serve as a symbol of their identity. Moreover, as society becomes more accepting of tattoos, they may even be seen as a positive attribute in some industries, such as the creative arts or fashion. By allowing students the freedom to express themselves through tattoos, we are promoting creativity and individuality, which are important values in our society.
1 個敵方論點 (Counter-argument)：
議論文最重要的是要提供全面的論據，因此必須兼顧反方的論點，而不只是關注我方的論點。在轉換到反方論據時，可以使用以下轉折詞：“However / Nonetheless / On the flip side”，以提示讀者現在您將要談論反方的論點。
Some people argue that...
However, it could be argued that...
On the other hand...
Despite this, some may claim that...
Admittedly, there are some who believe that...
1 個駁論 (Rebuttal)：
在 Rebuttal 部分，可以使用以下提示詞：
Nevertheless / Nonetheless / Despite this...
However, it is important to note that...
While this may be true, it is also important to consider...
Although it may seem that..., in reality...
It is easy to see why one might believe..., but upon closer examination...
示範：Whether students should get tattoos or not？的反方論點和駁論
On the other hand, some may argue that tattoos can have negative effects on a student's future. Some employers may view visible tattoos as unprofessional or inappropriate, and this could limit job opportunities for students with tattoos. While it is true that tattoos may not be accepted in all industries, it is important to note that times are changing and tattoos are becoming more mainstream. In fact, many businesses and industries are now embracing tattoos as a form of self-expression and creativity. Furthermore, with advancements in technology, tattoos can now be removed or covered up if a student does change their mind in the future. Overall, the benefits of allowing students the freedom to express themselves through tattoos outweigh the potential negative consequences, and we should trust students to make their own decisions about their bodies and futures.
