#托福作文咩第 10 期 Day 9#
An old Chinese saying goes, 'It takes ten years to grow trees but a hundred years to rear people '.With the remarkable progress of the society, enormous changes have occurred in the field of education. There has historically been plentiful of debate about education. For example, which has better influence on children, in terms of field trips or classroom teaching. Personally speaking, it is more reasonable to choose to learn things in the real situation. My reasons and examples are given bellow.
First of all, field trips contributes to students' good understanding of knowledge. Teaching in the classroom imparts the knowledge through the simple method, including the book and video. But if they can learn it in the real scene, students can overcome the limitation of the classroom to observe the objects themselves. It can deepen the understanding of the knowledge of smell, touching, sound or appearance more than reading from books. For example, if they can have history class in the museum or memorial, children will learn more aspects of that period of history from the showed historical relics and pictures. Museums with various ages and themes cannot only give the information in different points of view, but also increasing the interest of students who have less attention to the history class. That is to say field trip teaching has more advantages than the classroom teaching.
Secondary, field trip teaching is better at stimulating students' delight in knowledge. There goes that interest is the best teacher. If field trips can do better in stirring up kids' inquisitiveness, it is admitted that it's a better scholastic method. As my recollection, we went to Anti Japanese Memorial Hall in a history class. We really felt we were in that battle by looking at the gun the soldiers used and the articles for their daily use. Plus, we experienced the 3D-simulated war game which touches us greatly about the ruthless of war to educate us to cherish the peace. This class arouse my curiosity of history to a large extend. The interest to study is well raised up by field trips are proved in such example. Therefore, it is more crucial for students to learn from field trips rather than the classroom.
Some people believe that classroom education does better than field trips. Since they may too excited about the objects observed or activities attended, students are most likely to forget the core aim of gaining knowledge. However, it is of such interest in attracting them that can help them to remember the process of leading them to review the information themselves after class. Field trips teaching, which benefits more to kids, has more incomparable merits.
In short, field trips teaching helps students to gain a better understanding of knowledge. Plus, it is better at stimulating students' delight in information of books to drive learning initiative. All of above benefit the achievement of aim of imparting knowledge, which is confirmed good for kids' development.
