#托福作文咩第 10 期 Day 9#
Recent years have witnessed a rapid development and profound transformation in education. Students have been able to access a more effective and novel way to study in the school. Some sociologists claim that it is better for children to have field lesson than only staying in a classroom. As far as I am concerned, the interpretation can be fully approved and I am going to elaborate my viewpoint below.
First, doing field trip is conducive to a better understanding of knowledge that students have learned. Staying in a classroom, children cannot acquire an accurate and complete comprehension of subjects since they are unable to see and touch what they have learned. For example, my biology teacher used to bring us to do some field researches so as to make us understand the lessons more deeply. In that case, we always have opportunities to closely watch the shapes of various kinds of leaves and smell the different fragrances of flowers. All class have accessed to the vivid and direct information of vegetation which gives us an impressive impression that we will hardly forget.
Second, doing field trip does better in stirring up students' inquisitiveness about study. Interests should be developed and boosted through a process of perceiving beauty by self-experience. Almost everything we do not know well will turns out to be more simple and understandable after observing it in the nature. As for me, I am a big fun of colleting butterfly specimen. Believe it or not, I was seldom aware of this creature before taking biology class. It was a sunny day and my biology teacher took us to a nearby garden to conduct a research on distinguishing different kinds of butterflies through their colorful wings. I learned for the first time that there existed such fabulous insects in the nature and soon got immersed in them. Since then, I have been trying my best to collect as many varicolored butterflies as I can and this becomes a part of my life.
Admittedly, studying in classroom does also have some advantages. Students may avoid being bitten by some insects or injured during the field trip. Staying in the classroom can be safe. However, these problems can be easily solved by wearing some comfortable shoes or protective clothes. Meanwhile, teachers are able to impart a few notes on security before conducting the field practice. Thus, the benefits of field lesson can still not be compared and should be fully aware of.
To put it in a nutshell, it is my opinion that going on field trips is necessary for students’ education. Not only can it conduce to a better understanding on knowledge but also stimulate students’ curiosity on study. In other words, this education type will do more help to students than staying in a classroom.
