Will network classrooms replace traditional classrooms?
With the popular visitation of the internet, network classrooms are gaining more and more popularity. As a new teaching pattern, network classrooms have become an effective compliment to traditional classrooms. So some people propose on question “Will network classrooms replace traditional classrooms?”
As to this question, the opinions vary from one to another. Some people think it quite possible for network classrooms to take the place of traditional classrooms. First, network classrooms needn’t have face-to-face communication, and are not limited by time and place, which facilities both teachers and students. Secondly, network classrooms release teachers from repeating the same contents. Since the video or audio material can be played time and again.
However, many people have opposite stand points. They say that with online courses students like direct communication with teachers and their confusion can not be solved instantly. In addition, the computer system can not be guaranty to work staidly all the time. Personally, both network classrooms and traditional classrooms are necessary for students. If traditional teaching patterns and motor ones like network classrooms can be combined together, more fruitful education is sure to be realized.
A Letter of Apology
Dear Mr Wang,
I'm writing you this letter to apologize for my failing to hand in the paper on time. I'm very sorry for the convenience brought by my delay. Please accept my sincere apology with gratitude. The reason for my delay was the time was knocked down by a cold. Moreover,I had no way out because I was too weak to write a single word. Therefore,it is not in my power to finish the paper on time. I hope you will understand me and excuse me for my delay. However, I would do my utmost to finish the paper and hand it in as soon as possible. In my opionion,the importance of punctuality cannot be emphasized too much. So I assure you that I will hand in my homework on time from now on.
Nowadays more and more lectures are held on college campuses. These lectures are usually on different topics,such as arts,life, psycology,the economy,world issues. Lectures have become an important part of college campus life. Undoubtedly college students have benefited a lot from various lectures. Above all, the lectures broaden the students' knowledge horizon and cultivate their interest in different fields.
What's more, some lectures teach students practical knowledge and skills,such as how to make up and how to become self-confident. Besides,lectures make the life of college students colourful and enjoyable.
With these merits,lectures are a good complement to required classes. However,if a student spends too much time attending lectures, his regular study might be affected. Therefore,in my opinion, college students should attend good lectures on condition that they do their class work as well.
Does a Student Need Private Tutoring?
A recent investigation shows that about 70 percent of middle school students in cities have private tutors. Such a popular practice indicates that parents are attaching greater importance to their children's education. However, private tutoring has both advantages and disadvantages.
On the one hand, many parents have not enough ability or time to help their children in study. Private tutoring is a good solution to this problem. In addition, private tutoring is usually one-to-one, so the teacher can know the weak points as well as the strong points of the pupil, and thus teaching is, in most cases, directly to the point.
On the other hand, private tutoring has its own disadvantages. For one thing, it takes up so much of the pupil’s time that he can hardly find enough time for rest and entertainment. For another, some tutors, busy “shuttling” from one family to another, tend to be unable to concentrate on their teaching duties as tutors.
Considering the above-mentioned, I think the disadvantages of private tutoring outweigh its advantages. In my opinion, greater emphasis should be laid on classroom teaching and practice, on the improvement of teaching quality and on the tapping of the pupil’s potential. Only in this way can a new generation be healthily brought up..
