Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: All university students should take basic science courses regardless of their fields of study.
As the so-called cradle of knowledge and talents, universities are often placed with too much expectation as if they can reshape a student into a person with omniscience after years of university study. Facts always go against the grain however. Then we can hear almost the same voice from the media, “we need a more comprehensive course structure to cover every spot of how the world functions”. Yet with a second thought, does the word really make sense, or does the society really expect university graduates to be in that way? Hopefully not. Therefore, I am fully against the idea of introducing basic science into university course system and advocate a more practical sense to view university education.
First of all, a reasonable definition of university is a place where people can get professional knowledge in the field they choose. For the first day a student entering into the university, s/he embraces the dream to become a specialist in a specific area. With that goal rooted in mind, s/he selects major related courses, attends useful seminars or wo
Some people say that teachers and parents should decide what assignment or activities children should do after school. Others say that children should make these decisions on their own. Which view do you agree with and why?
Nowadays, some claim that kids should choose what to do after school by themselves because parents and teachers could not know what children really like. However, in my opinion, both teachers and parents should be responsible for children's mental and physical health, so they are entitled to make decisions about children’s after-class activities.
To start with, parents and teachers have abundant life experience, so they can give some really useful and helpful suggestions to students, which can help them learn things more efficiently and effectively. After all, children need to be cultivated to form good habits. Take my little brother Bob for example. Bob is a boy who loves to read books a lot, and he regards author as his future career. However, what he does is only to read some novels for several months because he knows little about how to improve writing skills. Fortunately, his
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People in the past are more interested in improving their neighborhood (the area where they live) than now.
As science and technology advance, the connection among people is actually loosened. More young people prefer to play video games on computer rather than communicate with friends or families. The relationships between neighbors are not so closed. As far as I am concerned, the reasons can be explained as follows.
To begin with, because of pressure at work or study, people have no time or energy to deal with the relationships with other. It is obvious that people rush to their work place or school in the early morning and come back late in the evening. They even have no time to relax or have a rest at weekends. Since they pay all their attention and conc
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? While parents have the responsibility to educate young people about healthy eating habits, schools should also be responsibile for this.
Whenever flipping through pages, turning on the televisions or logging onto the internet, we can see extensive press coverage concerning healthy. As a matter of fact, especially for young people, a good eating habit is to human’s health what the foundation is to a skyscraper, water is to fish and the heart is to a human. It’s clear that parents are responsible for the young to develop healthy eating habits. From my standpoint, I think that school which plays a crucial role in the young’s life should also pay attention to their eating habits.
To begin with, it is beneficial for young people to develop a healthy
Someone thinks that scores should be the sum total of the scores of many assignment while others think that the scores should be the results of 1 or 2 exams. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
On contemporary society, scores serve as a decisive factor in one’s future. Thus, someone holds that the present marking system has its deficiency and appeals to the relevant people to perfect the Grading System. In my opinion, I agree with proposal for the following reasons.
First and foremost, the present Grading System cannot objectively reflect the truth. It is not fair for someone who performs well but accidently fails to the 1 or 2 exams because they will lose the chance to be admitted to their desired universities. Take my experience as an example. I was the top student in my senior high school and got the high marks in every month exams but
