My Thesis
“While smoking ban can have a negative effect on some businesses, smoking should be banned in public places because of health risks to non-smokers.”
I plan to support my thesis by looking at the view from both sides of the argument. Many businesses are affected by smoking bans (loss of customers, income, etc.). I also plan to argue the fact that second-hand smoke causes many health risks and concerns. I will provide supporting details along with some supporting graph details comparing things like restaurant users who preferred a smoking environment, and comparison to men and women who indicated that a non-smoking enhanced/greatly enhanced the enjoyment of their meal, to name a few.

Example of outline:
I. Main point 1 in a complete sentence.
A. Subpoint 1 in a complete sentence.
1. Supporting example 1 in a complete sentence.
2. Supporting example 2 in a complete sentence.
B. Subpoint 2 in a complete sentence.

asked by Jen
  1. #1. You cannot support ONE SIDE of an argument well by evenly looking at both sides of the topic. You need to focus most of your paper on supporting your thesis.

    #2. Without knowing what the main points and supporting examples are, there's no way to tell if your paper will work or not.

    Write the actual outline, and then someone will be able to help.

    Read this completely and carefully to find out how to construct an argument effectively:
