Homework课外作业

Mary: You look kind of unhappy. Do you want to talk about anything?

like he hates me or something.

lot to learn from this teacher.
玛丽:我敢肯定没那么严重。你这是第一年上英语作文课吧?也许你要从老师那里学很多东西。
Tom: Yeah, that may be, but then why does him only show me my errors and never say anything about what I might have done
right? It seems kind of unfair, and a little unkind.
汤姆:也许吧,但他为什么只是指出我的错误,却从来不说我文章的好的方面呢?这好像有点几不太公平,而且也太不近人情了。

1.“kind of“在这里的意思是“有点儿,有几分“,在口语中应用较多,通常置于动词、形容词或副词前,与“sort of“同义。例如:The police kind of suspected that he was not telling the truth.(警察有点怀疑他没有说实话。) He was kind of sad because his best friend moved away.(他最好的朋友搬走了,他有点儿伤心。)
2.“all over (sth.)“的意思是“遍及(某物),到处“。例如:They said they had cleaned up but there were bottles all over the place. (他们说他们打扫干净了,可是这个地方还到处都是瓶子。)Scientists from all over the world will gather here.(世界各地的
科学家都将聚集在这里。)
3.“give up“的意思是“放弃“,例如:She gave up her job and started writing poetry.(她放弃她的工作开始写诗。)

4.文化洗礼

美国学生的课外作业

一般人都认为美国学生快乐,是因为作业少,有时间玩。但事实却并非如此,美国学生的课外作业其实也很多,学生没有被压垮,是因为这些作业给他们带来了快乐,他们乐此不疲。
课外作业的根本意义不在于简单的重复和低水平的思考,而是要训练学生的思维能力和灵活程度。课外作业不是学生负担过重的罪魁祸首,没质量的课外作业才是元凶。
美国式作业总是不拘一格,最大秘诀在于贴近生活。譬如设计小镇宣传、评论总统的政府工作报告、评判儿童电视节目的优劣、讨论比萨斜塔会不会倒、探索中国飞速发展的原因和影响、比较各种防晒霜、分析薯片松脆的原因、解析9•11受害者的经济补偿…实在富有创意,不得不让人为美国老师的创造力和想象力喝彩。
美国式作业让学生在生活中用上课堂所学知识,他们对知识的理解就会特别深刻,更积极学习,会综合自己所有的知识,深入探索。而那些死记硬背的“知识“就像是一车车运进城里的原材料,或许有用,但由于被孤零零地丢在城市角落,长期不用,慢慢就会被遗忘和废弃。
