20110115_ Do schools kill creativity(2)

Can students really be creative at school?

[Steve & Hazel]

@It’s a big issue.

Lose interest and imagination

 [Chip & Winnie]

@Conversation B
P: Besides, people are different and don’t all learn in exactly the same way.
E: What do you mean?
P: Well, for example, teachers once thought the choreographer for Cats, Gillian Lynne, had a learning disability
E: And did she?
P: No! Her teachers assumed that she did because she couldn’t sit still. Fortunately, her doctor realized she just needed to express herself through movement.
E: What happened?
P: Her parents enrolled her in a performing arts school. Instead of having all of her creativity suppressed, she was able to excel in her field and in life.
E: That’s a great story, but I really think our school has to follow certain guidelines.
P: Yeah, maybe. But the classrooms still don’t all have to be structured exactly the same way. The same format every day causes students to lose interest and imagination.
E: Our classes aren’t all like that, though. Ms. Wynn uses lots of creative methods to teach us English.
P: You’re right. She fosters creativity and gets us excited about learning. I hope her teaching style is
contagious!

K: So, Rachel, are you going to have a that picnic this weekend?
R: Oh. Don’t even ask. We decided to cancel it because everyone is sick, and besides the forecast calls for rain.
K:
Beside the forecast? What’sbeside the forecast?
R: No, Ken (Laughter). Not
beside. I saidbesideswith an s in at the end.
K: Oh.
Besides. So it’s likemoreover.
R: In some ways, yes, both words are used as a transition from one point to
the other another. As for the their difference, why don’t we have Studio Classroom’s editor- in-chief, Doris, explain it for us?
K: Ok.
D: The main difference between
besidesandmoreoveris that when it’s withbesides, the statement after it argues the same thing as the statement before it. Whereas, moreoveris often an introduction as of a new point of or statement.
K: I think I know what she means. Can you give me an example, Rachel?
R: Sure. I just said
that the picnic is cancelled because everyone is sick, besides the forecast calls for the rain.
K: So, both statements argue that the picnic should be cancelled.
R: Right. The second statement that
besidesintroduces serves to support all to or strengthen  the first statement.
K: Ok. What about
moreover?
R:
Moreoveris simply an introduction as of a new point which may or may not argue the same  for as the first statement. For instance, we can saythe government is telling people to save the electricity, moreover, it’s promoting the use of solar energy.  
K: So this is
the a case wherebesidesdoesn’t work.
R: Right. And as you can see, we can use
moreoverin almost all cases. But we can only usebesidesin certain cases.
K: I see. Well, I hope people won’t be sick
for too long.
R: Me too. I really want to have that picnic.

L(1-5)-3.5
In some ways, as for, call for, whereas

s
發的是[e]為短元音,前面加an
the other
表示兩部分中的另一部分,another表示三者以上當中的另外一個,還可用來表示再、又

one…the other…一般用來表示總數為二中的「另外一個」,the other是特指
another…
一般用來表示總數大於等於三中的「另外一個」,another是泛指
one/some…others…/other +
名詞複數,表示「另外一些」,othersother+名詞複數是泛指
如果你想表達特指的「另外一些」(表示在一個範圍內的其他全部),那麼就可以用the other+名詞複數,或者the others
聽寫力,from one point to another,從一個論點轉到另一個論點,並不是特指,所以用another
用哪個是看你想怎麼表達意思

表示具體的一段時間,習慣用介詞for
