#托福作文咩第 10 期 Day 9#
As is known to all, education is the bed rock of a country’s long term development. With the development of society, people begin to pay more and more attention on education. An increasing investment of time and fund has also been spent on education. This encourages reforms and innovations on the ways of education. There has always been plentiful discussion about education.
For instance, which is a better way to educate our children, to study in the classroom or to go on a field study? From my own opinion, field study does more benefits on students’ education. Here are my reasons.
To begin with, field study is conductive to students’ better understanding of what they have learned. Studying in the classroom, students can only learn with the aid of text book. It seems dull and boring, as well as bad effect. But if we put our lesson to the outside, students can get rid of the classroom’s constraint. They may touch the things they’ve learned through their senses, such as appearances, sounds and tastes. It contributes their understanding a lot. For instance, a Chinese class which is teaching “Account of Inebriate Pavilion”, if teachers only read the text book to the students, students may not get a good comprehension on the beautiful scene and Ouyang Xiu’s thoughts indicated in the article. They may only depend on their poor imagination. However, if the class is taught in Inebriate Pavilion, there would be a totally difference. Teachers can make every scenery written in the article to match the mountains, rivers around. It benefits the students’ understanding a lot. This way is more vivid than classroom based only on textbook and impress students more. Consequently, comparing with studying in the classroom, field study is of great help to students’ better understanding of what they have learned.
Next, field study is more likely to arouse one’s curiosity of studying. As the old saying, interest is the best teacher. If the field study performance better on exciting the students’ interests, this method benefits children more than studying in the classroom. During my junior time, my chemistry teacher always put classes in the lab so that we could practice those experiments on our textbook and observe the phenomena of them. Experiment made everything in the chemistry class like an exploration. This practice helped me a lot. I got fascinated with chemistry. From my junior to senior high, chemistry was my best subject. I always got a full score. Relatively, I was not interest with those class without field study. I performance fair on those ones. This example illustrates that field study can truly improve students’ interests in study. I believe that many of the students have the same experience with me. Therefore, comparing with studying in the classroom, field study does more benefits on children’s education.
Some people may believe that studying in the classroom has more benefits on students’ education than field study. They hold the opinion that field study has possibility to cause children to override theoretical learning. As a matter of fact, if the teacher can combine textbook learning and practice well, this circumstance can be avoided. Field study has advantages which studying in the classroom can’t compare with so that field study does more help on students’ learning than studying in the classroom.
Briefly, field study is of great help to students’ better understanding of what they have learned. It also innovates their interest on study better and pull up their activity on study. These are more beneficial to realize the purpose of knowledge’s spreading through education. Consequently, it contributes a lot to children’s education.
