Some people think that parents should read or tell stories to children. Others think that parents need not do that as children can read books or watch TV or movies by themselves. Discuss the both views and give your own opinion. 2017年7月15日大陆A类考题
其次，确定题目中给出让我们讨论的家庭教育的方式是reading or telling stories to children，我们就要思考为什么这么做必要。
然后，明确题目中给出的对比讨论对象children can read books or watch TV or movies by themselves，思考这么做的利弊。
有了以上的分析，我么可以确定这篇作文的写作方向：analyze the importance of reading or telling stories to children by parents，并可以因此明确文章的结构是有侧重的论证结构，写作重点是主体段落的立论段和让步段。
While people argue that children today are able to receive information and get entertained by themselves through a variety of resources, such as books or TV programs or movies, I tend to believe in the importance of reading or telling stories to them by parents.
第一个立论段我们提出的分论点是：reading or telling stories to children encourages family bonding.
家庭生活是一个热门话题，有一道常青考题就是让考生分析the increasing sense of alienation in the family.
Reading or telling stories to children encourage family bonding. In this day and age of busy schedules, there is an increasing sense of alienation in the family, as many working parents tend to spend the majority of their time in the office or even work overtime at home to ensure an advantageous position in the face of stiff competition. Therefore, reading together is simply an enjoyable and easy way for parents to take time out and focus on the family. Children usually feel wanted and loved by listening to the stories from parents, and open-heart and sincere communication can be generated naturally in this case.
第二个立论段我们提出的分论点是：reading or telling stories molds children into becoming readers, and this significantly increases children's potential for academic success as well as lifelong success in general.
虽然现在科技发达，信息获取及娱乐方式多种多样，但reading or telling stories给孩子带来的益处是不可取代的。
Furthermore, reading or telling stories molds children into becoming readers, and this significantly increases children's potential for academic success as well as lifelong success in general. Children are more likely to have a better command of language in an early age by learning the pronunciation and vocabulary from parents. It also builds listening skills, increases a child’s attention span, and develops the ability to concentrate. Also, children can be inspired to express themselves more confidently and easily in spoken and written terms.
On the other hand, some claim that children could read stories from books or watch them on TV or in movies. They believe that children should have the freedom of making decisions and judgments. This would be much easier for the parents who are too busy nowadays, but what is worth mentioning is that children today are easily influenced by the poor behaviors and violent images in the mass media, and considering their inborn features of being curious, the accompany and guidance of parents is quite essential.
主体部分的让步段，也可称之为驳论段，需要论证children read books or watch TV or movies by themselves.
To sum up, I believe that, it is always better for the parents as well as the children, if parents read or tell stories to their children, which could ensure quality family time and benefits the literacy and intellectual development of children in a long term.
Some people who have been in prison become good citizens later. Some people think that they are the best people to talk to school students the danger of committing a crime. To what extent do you agree or disagree? 2018年7月28日大陆A类考题
一方面，这道题目只是有committing a crime这个表达，但不属于犯罪类话题；清醒的同学应该判断出属于未成年的教育与保护类话题(请对比上文详解的第一道题目)。
所以，这道题目在写作时我们会用到很多相关的表达，比如students’ behaviors，good members of society等。
有了以上的分析，我们这道题提出的文章中心观点就是：It takes more efforts to prevent potential juvenile delinquency than relying on rehabilitated lawbreakers.
本题为了论证的清晰和力度，我们先讨论题目中提到的解决方案：People who have been in prison and become good citizens later tend to have better understanding of the severe consequences of violating the law and have a unique perspective of sharing the lesson with others to deter potential crimes… (具体论证见范文)
紧接着，立论段我们提出未成年的教育更在于parenting和schooling：Teaching students how to distinguish between the right and the wrong and how to behave well should be the main responsibility of parents and teachers.
因此，文中给出了父母和学校老师具体做的作用：In order to achieve this end, parents should help students know what is important in life, what role they will play in their world and how they are expected to behave. Teachers should teach them how to cooperate with others and how to contribute to the life of their community.
There are many problems with students' behaviors today, and therefore people claim that students should be reminded of the hazard of committing crimes. While some believe that it should be carried out by rehabilitated lawbreakers, I think it takes more efforts to prevent potential juvenile delinquency.
Some people think that employers should not care about the way their employees dress, but the quality at work. To what extent do you agree or disagree? 2018年1月13日大陆A类考题
我们提出的观点是侧重支持dress code at work；并在立论段论证了观点：A dress code is important because employees are representing the company or the organization, and it guarantees the smooth progress of work.
然后，在让步段我们很客观的说明了：Employees have seen a shift towards a more casual dress standard, even in industries that were previously very formal.同样，在这里我们也使用具象思维，给出了具体的工作场所。
最后，我们强调了雇主应该很好的和员工沟通，因为dress code是可以提高the quality at work。
所以说，这道题目并不难，复习到位，真的很容易搞定。但是很可惜，不少迷糊的考生直接把dress code和the quality at work理解成了对立面。
Dress codes are sets of standards that companies develop to help provide their employee with guidance about what is appropriate to wear to work, and they have been in effect, in all walks of life, for decades. While it seems that today many people have second thoughts about them, I believe they are put in place for a reason.
Some people think that individuals are more dependent on each other, while others think that individuals are becoming more independent. Discuss both views and give your own opinion. 2016年11月5日大陆A类考题
Some people think that there is a growing level of individuals’ dependency on those around us, e.g., families, friends and work colleagues. However, I do not think that this is the case.
Independence has become more predominant due to modern technologies increasing our exposure to global events. We are therefore becoming more educated and well informed, and as a result, we are able to be more open minded than in the past. This exposure is further encouraging us to have more life enriching experiences such as travelling and studying abroad which promote a stronger sense of independence within us.
文章第一个立论段首先提出的是：Independence has become more predominant due to modern technologies increasing our exposure to global events.
意思是科技开阔了我们的视野，让我们了解全世界。具体论证提出了人们如今可以通过出国读书和旅行来丰富自己的阅历，这一切其实是promote a stronger sense of independence within us.
An increasing level of independence can also be noted through the way people choose to perform everyday tasks, such as shopping, banking and even business transactions. Instead of meeting others face to face, many daily tasks today can be accomplished on our own with the access to the Internet. Thus, many of us can arrange daily routines according to our personal needs and habits.
然后，文章第二个立论段提出了：An increasing level of independence can also be noted through the way people choose to perform every tasks, such as shopping, banking and even business transactions.
意思是人们可以灵活选择从事日常事务的方式，并因此论证得出了结论：Many of us can arrange daily routines according to our personal needs and habits.
It is true that there are still existing factors that lead people to remain dependent. Higher demand of life and the resulting increases in the cost of living prevent some especially young adults to possess individual assets such as accommodation and transport. In this case the individual is more prone to seek assistance from families and friends.
Higher demand of life and the resulting increases in the cost of living prevent some especially young adults to possess individual assets such as accommodation and transport.
However, I believe that the independent thinking that is expanding in modern times through greater global exposure will outweigh the hurdles of higher living costs and will ultimately create a gradual increase in the level of individual independence.
最后，我们总结强调中心观点：There is a gradual increase in the level of individual independence.
