SAT写作素材库——STEREOTYPE(一)

【历年真题】20095月真题4

Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below.

 

People define themselves by work, by what they “do.” When one person asks another, “What do you do?” the answer always refers to a job or profession: “I’m a doctor, an accountant, a farmer.” I’ve often wondered what would happen if we changed the question to, “Who are you?” or “What kind of person are you?” or even, “What do you do for fun?”

Adapted from Stephan Rechtschaffen, Time Shifting

 

Assignment: Are people best defined by what they do? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and example taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations.

 

这道题的讨论中心是stereotype。这一直是一个在各类海外考试中讨论的热点话题之一。

关于stereotype的话题,有些以对于性别的偏见入手,有些以对于国籍种族的偏见入手,有些从不同年龄段入手,而这道题,以个性和共性之间的关系入手。西方社会非常看重individuality是一件众所周知的事情。

 

在解题之前,我们先看一下对于stereotype的定义:

The definition of stereotype

A stereotype is a thought that may be adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of doing things, but that belief may or may not accurately reflect reality.

 

Examples of stereotypes:

Cultural and ethnic

List of anti-cultural, anti-national, and anti-ethnic terms

 

SAT中相关的考题还有很多,如:

Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below.

A person does not simply “receive” his or her identity. Identity is much more than the name or features one is born with. True identity is something people must create for themselves by making choices that are significant and that require a courageous commitment in the face of challenges. Identify means having ideas and values that one lives by.

Adapted from Thomas Merton, Contemplation in the World of Action

Assignment: Is identity something people are born with or given, or is it something people create for themselves? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations.
