雅思大作文题目

孩子们都该学历史课吗?

Some people think it is important for all children to learn history at school. Others believe that other subjects like science and mathematics are more relevant to children’s development today. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

解析&审题

本次考试题目是2013年5月18日的原题重现。关于学生在学校到底该学什么科目,类似的题目在雅思考试中也是经常出现。


本题大家应该抓获关键词和关键问题。关键词是“children”,关键问题是“是不是所有孩子都应该学习历史”和“科学和数学这些课程是不是更重要”,因此我们的讨论应该体现出我们对关键词的认识,以及对关键问题的回答。


对于孩子的教育而言,我相信大家的观点都是孩子的教育要体现全面性(如果本题问的是大学教育,那就要另当别论了,因为大学教育注重的应该是专业性)。


基于这个认识,我们就可以分别论证历史课以及数学课对于孩子的价值。


我们当然可能有千言万语,但在短短的250字空间内,我建议大家抓住重点论述即可,比如历史课的价值是让孩子们有更宽阔的视野,而数学科的价值则是让孩子学到更加实用的知识。围绕这两点展开,就是本作文的两个主题段落了。


以下请看唐老师的高分范文。

老师笔记

01


History has long been a typical part of students’ list of required courses throughout their school years. But, does history deserve a place as important as science and mathematics in the curriculum?


长久以来,历史一直是学生们在校必修课程清单中的一个典型部分。但是,在课程中历史是否应该与科学和数学同等重要?

解析

(1) 本段引出话题,然后提出接下来即将讨论的问题。

(2) Typical 典型的

(3) Required course 必修课

(4) Deserve 值得;应得


02


To begin with, history does play an inspirational role in a well-rounded education. That role is for students to develop a sound awareness of the past of their own country and of the wide world, with illuminating insights into the present and the future. However, how will children learn about history if they do not even study it in school? In a certain sense, the removal of history as a core subject from school curriculum would turn out to be a tragedy for children’s education. It would be frightening to imagine that many children are likely to leave schools without a bit of knowledge of history as a source of inspiration.


首先,历史确实在全面教育中起到鼓舞人心的作用,即通过对现在和未来的有启发性的见解,让学生对自己国家的过去和世界的过去有一个良好的认识。然而,如果孩子们甚至都不在学校学习历史,他们将如何得知历史呢?从某种意义上讲,将历史作为一门核心学科从学校课程中删除,对儿童教育来说将是一场悲剧。想象许多孩子离开学校时可能没有一点历史知识作为灵感来源,这将是令人恐惧的。

解析

(1) 本段论述历史在学校教育中的作用,突出其振奋人心的价值。

(2) Inspirational 给人灵感的

(3) Well-rounded education全面的教育

(4) A sound awareness of… 对……的良好意识

(5) Illuminating 有启发性的

(6) Removal (n.) 移除;排除在外


03


My point, however, is not to argue in favor of history and against other subjects like science and mathematics. Rather, the latter two disciplines are commonly considered as more valuable than history since they are more immediately relevant to children’s development. As compared with history, science and mathematics usually can provide learners with such concrete knowledge regarding the number, distance, speed, and size of things in the universe. That is to say, these two courses are viewed as more practical, and therefore more valuable not only in school but also later in life.


然而,我的观点并不是要偏向历史,而反对科学和数学等学科。相反,后两个学科通常被认为比历史更有价值,因为它们更直接地关系到孩子的发展。与历史相比,科学和数学通常能为学习者提供关于宇宙中事物的数量、距离、速度和大小的具体知识。也就是说,这两门课被认为更实用,不仅在学校,而且在以后的生活中也更有价值。

解析

(1) 本段讨论科学和数学这些课程的重要性:突出其实用价值。

(2) In favor of 偏爱……;喜欢……

(3) Discipline 学科

(4) Immediately 直接地

(5) As compared with 与……相比较

(6) Concrete knowledge 具体的知识

04


In conclusion, history is as important as science and mathematics, although in different ways. History makes children more open-minded, while science and mathematics make them more practical. If it is the responsibility for schools to train all-rounded students, then both history and science and mathematics should remain compulsory subjects.


总之,历史与科学和数学一样重要,尽管原因不同。历史使孩子们思想更加开阔,而科学和数学使他们更加实际。如果学校的责任是培养全面的学生,那么历史、科学和数学都应该继续成为必修科目。

解析

(1) 总结前文的主要观点,并提出自己的看法。

(2) Open-minded 思想开阔的

(3) All-rounded 全面的

(4) Compulsory subject 必修科目

History has long been a typical part of students’ list of required courses throughout their school years. But, does history deserve a place as important as science and mathematics in the curriculum?
