  托福独立写作题目

  Do you agree or disagree with the statement:

  These days, children spend more time in doing homework or participating in organized activities related to school or sports. However, they should be given more time to do whatever they want.

  1

  Spending plenty of time doing homework or engaging in activities organized by schools, children may feel jaded, and this is why some propose allowing them to allocate their time however they like. Should we adopt this proposal? No.

  2

  It would be unfair to completely deprive children of the pastimes they like, as it is not conducive to tapping their potentials. Explicitly, children with poor academic performances may be top game players, and children who show little interests in activities organized by schools may be passionate about other walks of life like racing cars. In this sense, forcing them to spend time on homework or school activities is certainly counterproductive, and contrarily, encouraging them to explore their interests in a wider range allows for more possibilities. Not to mention, tremendous time spent in solving complex mathematical problems or memorizing obscure poems stretches students too thin, leading to burnout. In which case, giving students time to do whatever they want enables them to unwind, energizing them for the next school day.

  本段解析:

  经典的让步反驳段,先认可让他们做自己喜欢的事确实有其可取之处, 因为学业不佳的学生可能别的领域有天赋,学校活动参加不积极的学生可能想参加别的活动。让他们做自己喜欢的事可能有利于他们成长。而且,家庭作业之余也要劳逸结合不是。

  重点词汇:

  * Pastime n.消遣,娱乐方式

  * Tap potential 激发潜能

  * Stretch sb. Too thin 使人紧张压迫

  * Burnout n. 筋疲力竭

  * Energize v. 使活跃,给...提供东路

  However, we should be aware that most children are prone to misbehave, either because they are too young to be self-disciplined, or because the temptations to which they are exposed are too strong. To be more specific, children may indeed be gifted with computers, but it’s not unlikely they will be addicted to engaging games featuring the true-to-life visual and thrilling plots rather than complicated programming skills or circuit of the chips, which obviously associates with higher return. This is where school activities have an edge that under the instructions of teachers, the addiction to games is less likely and a goal-oriented study can instead be ensured. In addition, if given more time to do whatever they want, they would run out of energy before school days, in which case their mind may wander off in class, let alone devoting to the classes wholeheartedly. As a result, doing homework would become too hard, and a satisfactory academic performance, the stepping stone to elite universities and prosperous careers, could hardly be achieved.

  本段解析:

  对上段落内容进行反驳,小孩子难以自律,也难以抵抗诱惑。让他们任凭喜好做事可能影响接下来的学业,也可能将自己的兴趣时间错付了。

  重点词汇:

  * Be prone to 有...的倾向

  * true-to-life visual n. 逼真的视效

  * wander off 走散

  * A stepping stone to 跳板, 敲门砖

  At this point, it is crystal clear that giving children more time to do whatever they want, albeit justifiable at first glance, is not viable after a closer look.
