  2014年10月25日香港地區的SAT考試已經過去,筆者在第一時間拿到了作文真題,并對該題目做了簡要的解析,后附范文一篇,希望對2015年1月24日參加考試的考生有所助益。

  Assignment: When a project is not going on well, is it better for people to continue or just simply quit?

  首先我們先從題目本身入手,具體分析一下其解題過程。

  這次作文題目中我們能夠很容易地找到考查的主題,即堅持還是放棄。首先通過主題我們可以發現,該題目屬于SAT??荚掝}之一:成功的條件。并且題目難度比較小,為SAT作文常規話題,在以往的考試中出現過多次。如:

  2009.11 Is it better for people to stop trying when they feel certain they will not succeed?

  2009.1 Is striving to achieve a goal always the best course of action, or should people give up if they are not making progress?

  2008.12 Is persistence more important than ability in determining a person's success?

  2006.12 Is it better for people to be realistic or optimistic?

  有了對題目準確的定位之后,我們需要在腦海中搜索能夠跟題目匹配的素材,也就是準備過的例子,通過例子來確定自己的中心觀點。之后,在下筆之前需要對文章的結構進行梳理,補充例子與中心論點之間的具體論證過程。

  對于一篇重點考查學生批判性思維,且在正反兩個觀點中進行選擇的文章來講,我們需要對兩個觀點進行思路梳理,尋找有效的推論。

  如果選擇“在事情進行不是很順利的情況下堅持下去”,那么我們可以結合現實尋找支持這一觀點的理由,即任何事情的進行都不會一帆風順,只有堅持下去才能有成功的可能,正所謂“山窮水盡疑無路,柳暗花明又一村”。除了這種正向論證方式之外,對于二選一類型的觀點論證題我們還可以進行反向論證,即找出反面觀點的缺陷或不合理之處,那么反向論證思路可以是:輕言放棄和半途而廢往往會斷送一個人成功的道路。

  同理,對相反觀點的支持也可以采用上述方式。正向:我們在實現某一目標的過程中,由于認識的深化和環境的變化等因素的影響,可能會發現并確定這一目標不可實現或者并不適合自己,反而有更適合自己的新的目標,那么這時候放棄就意味著減少無謂的浪費,將精力放在更恰當的目標上去。反向:當某一目標進行地不順,并預示著失敗時,如果一味地堅持,那么結果不會是令人滿意的。

  根據以上思路,附上范文一篇。

  “To strive for a goal is to persist in trying; to persist in trying is to encounter hardships and adversities; to encounter hardships and adversities is to repeat disappointment and dismay; but the reward for a determined and resolute goal pursuer is that he is likely to leave a name more reputable and admirable than that of the rest of the world.” Resounding as these words are, they serve as not only an admonition but also an encouragement for those who are contemplating retreating from a project that is not going on well. Whether it is tough or smooth, a goal set should never be easily given up.

  Many highly successful people are just ordinary individuals who kept on trying, and who did not give up when obstacles arose. Such an assertion could be aptly exemplified by Niels Abel, an eminent mathematician who had struggled for many years before his proving of the impossibility of solving the quintic equation by radicals was finally recognized. For over 250 years, all the mathematicians believed that such equation could be solved for roots. Therefore when Abler voiced his different opinion, he was immersed in ridicule and reproach. The rejection from all other professors aggravated Abel’s already terrible financial condition. Hopeless though it seemed, he never yielded, but determined to correct the wrong theory and reveal truth to the whole world. He not only continued his research, but also traveled to many countries and met different mathematicians to proclaim his findings and to gain their support. Although unrecognized during his lifetime, Abel made significant contribution to mathematics: under his guidance, the prevailing obscurities were cleared and new fields were entered so that modern mathematics can reach an incredible standard. It is Abel’s persistence that avoids our being misguided by the wrong erroneous theory.

  Not wanting to face failure, many extremely talented people give up in the struggle to meet their goals when difficulties advent, thereby allowing their sparkle to be dimmed. Such is the case with Gregor Mendel, who did not strive for the recognition of his theory when meeting the denying of most of his temporaries. Cultivating great passion in the discipline of genetics, Mendel dedicated himself to the study of heredity by his pea experiments which were based on precise observation, careful calculation and detailed analysis. The eight years’ hard work gave birth to what is titled Mendel's Laws of Inheritance. However, when Mendel presented his theory, he not only was discriminated by the authoritative scientists of the Bruen Science Association for his divergence from the mainstream research direction, but also encountered skepticism due to his first attempt at combining biology, statistic and mathematics in researching. Regrettably, Mendel himself did not persevere in his study, but invested his energies elsewhere, which led to the burying of his profound work until the turn of the 20th century. Had Mendel persevered, genetic field might have benefited from his research thirty years earlier.

  Seen from the above examples, it can be said that the biggest difference between people who succeed at any difficult undertaking and those who do not is probably not ability but persistence. Thus “Never give up” should be listed as one of our priorities when we are faced with adversities.

  總之,25日的作文考試難度不大,符合SAT一貫的出題方式,只要我們能夠熟練運用準備過的素材,再對兩方觀點進行有深度的剖析,梳理有效的理由,就能很好地應對這道題目。
