### 主体段 1
主题句：Some people believe that History is one of the most important subjects for the following reasons.
递进解释 + 正反对比：First, a nation’s history, which is an invaluable part of humans’ knowledge and wisdom, records the country’s achievements, cultural memory and shared values of its people. And learning History enables one to have a profound understanding of current social issues. Besides, there is a saying that “Forgetting history means betrayal”. Leaving behind the history of a nation deprives its people of their cultural memory and sense of identity.
### 主体段 2
主题句：The opposing idea is that learning Science and Technology is more important, or more useful, than learning History, for which I give my support.
平行列举 + 递进解释：The first reason is that, in the modern era, Science and Technology has been a fundamental part in everyone’s life. People keep in touch through mobile phones and social networking websites, do shopping and order meals online on a daily basis, and work at home by collaborative software. Those who ignore or undervalue Science and Technology may not work or live efficiently and productively. What’s more, as the primary productive force, Science and Technology plays a critical role in the economic and industrial development and is irreplaceable by any other subject, including History.
点明立场 + 汇总理由：In my perspective, despite that both the subjects should be learned to obtain a better understanding of human society, the education of Science and Technology is worth more investment since it is indispensable in improving people’s living quality and is the fundamental drive for a country’s economic and social development.
