Why Is Writing So Difficult?

Why Is Writing So Difficult?

佚名 2006-4-23 其它英语写作
  [Why Is Writing So Difficult?] On the very first day of my very first class as a teacher, I asked my students a very NAIVE question: Why is writing such a difficult thing to do?
The complaints came bubbling out of my students, and I was not prepared for the volume or substance of their GRIEVANCES. In a lather, I spent the entire class hour writing their concerns on the blackboard. When the black board was filled, we wrote more complaints on pages torn out of my notebook, which I thumb-tacked to a wall of the classroom. When the hour was up, we all sat numbly still, staring at this overwhelming sea of bad news. After the students had filed MEEKLY out of the classroom, I wrote down the contents of the blackboard in my notebook, collected the pages we had tacked to the wall, then went back to my office where I locked myself in. Suddenly, teaching students how to improve their writing seemed like an impossible task.

In many ways it is impossible, because the learning never ends. There is no such thing as the perfect writer because there is always something more to learn, another skill to master. Even now, no matter how hard I work to strengthen my writing, there is always something I can't do as well as I would like. My GRAMMAR skills are still weak and I still struggle to find the best structure for each of my writing efforts. Until very recently, my writing was horribly disorganized.

But my writing has improved and most of that growth can be ATTRIBUTED to this embarrassing confession: I started to practice the process skills I had been preaching to my students. I started to listen to my own advice.

Writing is so much more than simply taking a piece of paper and a pencil and SCRIBBLING away. There are so many things I need to take into consideration before I make my scribbles.

I have repeated the exercise I did in that first class in every writing course I have taught. I find it interesting that there are a few core complaints my students have about writing which show up on the blackboard every time I do the exercise. What I would like to do now is introduce these core GRUMBLINGS to you and talk about how this course and this computer program intend to make these concerns more manageable. Do you recognize these? Do you HARBOR some of the same complaints about writing?
 

  第2篇 托福英语作文经验—What To Follow
  〖预览〗写作是测试语言能力的重要方式,TOEFL考试自1987年起增加了写作测试,原因是美国的大专院校普遍反应单纯的客观题测试不能全面综合地反映考生的英语语言能力。目前大多数美国院校要求申请入学的学生提供TWE(Test of Written English)即写作考试的杉ǎ话阋笫窃?分以上,而一些名校的要求会高达满分6分,由此可见,托福作文的成绩会在极大程度上影响申请者最后进入的学校和取得奖学金的数额。   据有关资料统计,我国考生的托福写作成绩平均在3.5分左右,作文已成为广大考生在留学路途中一个难以突破的瓶颈。有没有可能在短期内提高写作成绩呢?答案是肯定的。本文不仅要帮助考生在短期内突破写作瓶颈,而且要提高考生的写作技巧和写作……【全文阅读:托福英语作文经验—What To Follow
