Lecture: 

Against

l 1. 虽然可以稳定价格,但着总价格的减少的原因是政府投入了资金,这些资金来自税收,所以间隔减少的这个幅度最终买单的是人民

l 2. 不能帮助弱国,当贫困国家出现粮食危机需要进口的时候,他们会发现进口的价格低于本地粮食价格,因而不能保护当地农民的利益

l 3. 不能增加就业,农业补贴只能用于一部分农作物,比如crops,当农业补贴加大,那么为了提高生产力,crop的生产方式会高度机械化,所以不用人工劳作。而且,种植其他品种的企业会没有优势,从而倒闭反而加深了就业问题。

Essay question

A/D: Younger school children should be required to study art and music in addition to studying math, language, science and history.

话题提示

 

Sample answer

Education, especially elementary education, has always been the topic of discussion in our times. One indisputable fact is that the quality of younger children’s education is in consistence with the future of a certain country. Therefore, when it comes to what course younger children should study, people varying in personalities and backgrounds view the same issue from different angles. However, from my own perspective, it is advisable to require younger children to study art and music apart from math, language, science and history.

 

For one thing, it is necessary for younger children to study the basic courses including science, math, language and history in that these courses can equip them with various skills needed in their daily life. For example, the numeracy skills acquired in the math lessons will enable them to buy pencils and erasers in the stationery stores without being cheated. By learning science, younger children will understand the natural phenomenon such as the formation of snow and rain, which will in turn stimulate their interest in learning science. The language course will teach them how to express themselves in a proper and polite way. Learning history will not only make them keep in minds the significant events happened in the past but also foster a sense of belonging and gain a better understanding of their own culture.

 

For another, it is also essential for children to study art and music because art and music play a crucial role in stimulating their imagination and develop their potential capabilities. According to a survey conducted by the Psychology Department of Boston University, those who received music or art education in their early age are more likely to have creative thinking than their counterparts who did not. What’s more, the early age is a critical period of education in which children acquire something quickly and efficiently. If a child has a talent for music, the music education in his early age will definitely enlighten him and help him become a master in the future.

 

Admittedly, some opponents may point out that studying all these courses in such an early age will put a heavy academic burden on children and thus have a negative effect on the healthy development of children. However, those opponents are ignorant of the fact that studying art and music is not a heavy burden but an effective way to relieve the stress brought by the basic courses such as math and history. Therefore, judging from what has been discussed above, it is safe for us to draw the conclusion that younger children should study art and music while studying math, language, history and science.
