53 AR-5-1 Debate Suppose your parents think that you and your brother/sister are spending too much time on the Internet, neglecting your schoolwork and normal daily life, and isolating yourselves from the real world. You want to convince them that your time on the Internet is not wasted, and the Internet has in no way isolated you from the real world. A debate is therefore called for between you and your parents.

54 AR-5-2 Step 1 Form teams Make groups of four people. Two of them will be the “parents” and the other two will be their “children”. Step 2 Have a pre-debate discussion The “parents” and the “children” prepare their arguments and supporting facts respectively. Step 3 Carry on the debate The debate will be carried on within each team, that is, the “parents” and the “children” in the team will present their arguments to each other. The debate will go on until one side fails to respond. One or two groups may be invited to give examples in class. Debate

55 AR-7-main Writing Practice 2. Example 1. Inductive generalization 3. Homework

56 AR-6-1 Inductive generalization In developing a paragraph by means of the inductive generalization, the writer presents particular instances of a like kind and leads them into valid generalization which serves as his topic sentences. Thus, in the inductive pattern, the topic sentence is likely to appear late in the paragraph, often at the end. The result may be referred to as a periodic paragraph, which, like a periodic sentence, cannot be considered structurally complete at any point before the end.

57 AR Example As an early-morning pastime, Susie, my tortoise-colored kitten, would frequent the utility room, swing open the small metal door on the gas heater, and peer at the mechanism inside. During the daytime her favorite toy was not the usual ball of the yarn, but a small musical top. And late at night, when there was sometimes a gentle tapping in the study next to my bedroom, the cause proved the same: in the darkness a soft little paw was playing feline rhythms on the key of my typewriter. For a kitten, Susie had an unusual interest in mechanical things.

58 AR What is the conclusion? 2. How does the author draw this conclusion? 3. Analyze Text A and explain how the author uses the technique of induction. For a kitten, Susie had an unusual interest in mechanical things. By three examples of the kitten’s interest. Open-ended. Example

68 Article1-S A VIRTUAL LIFE seems more rejecting than I’d imagined it would be. Time itself becomes fluid -- hours become minutes, or seconds stretch into days. Weekends, once a highlight of my week, are now just two ordinary days. After too long on the Net, even a phone call can be a shock. My boyfriend’s Liverpool accent suddenly becomes impossible to interpret after his easily understood words on screen; a secretary’s clipped tone

69 Article2_S For the last three years, since I stopped working as a television producer, I have done much of my work as a telecommuter. I submit articles and edit them via and communicate with colleagues on Internet mailing lists. My boyfriend lives in England, so much of our relationship is also computer-assisted. If I desired, I could stay inside for weeks without wanting anything. I can order food, and manage my money, love and work.

70 Article3_S In fact, at times I have spent as long as three weeks alone at home, going out only to get mail and buy newspapers and groceries. I watched most of the endless snowstorm of ’96 on TV. But after a while, life itself begins to feel unreal. I start to feel as though I’ve become one with my machines, taking data in, spitting them back out, just another link in the Net. Others on line report the same symptoms. We start to feel an aversion to outside forms of socializing. We have become the Net critics’ worst nightmare.

71 Article4_S What first seemed like a luxury, crawling from bed to computer, not worrying about hair, and clothes and face, has become a form of escape, a lack of discipline. And once you start replacing real human contact with cyber- interaction, coming back out of the cave can be quite difficult. I find myself shyer, more cautious, more anxious. Or, conversely, when suddenly confronted with real live humans, I get overexcited, speak too much, interrupt.

72 Article5_S I constantly worry if I am dressed appropriately, that perhaps I’ve actually forgotten to put on a skirt and walked outside in the T-shirt and underwear I sleep and live in. At times, I turn on the television and just leave it to talk away in the background, something that I’d never done previously. The voices of the programs are comforting, but then I’m jarred by the commercials. I find myself sucked in by soap operas, or needing to keep up with the latest news and the weather. “Dateline,” “Frontline,” “Nightline,” CNN, New York 1, every possible angle of every story over and over and over, even when they are of no possible use to me. Work moves into the background. I decide to check my .

73 Article6_S On line, I find myself attacking everyone in sight. I am bad-tempered, and easily angered. I find everyone on my mailing list insensitive, believing that they’ve forgotten that there are people actually reading their wounding remarks. I don’t realize that I’m projecting until after I’ve been embarrassed by someone who politely points out that I’ve attacked her for agreeing with me. When I’m in this state, I fight my boyfriend as well, misinterpreting his intentions because of the lack of emotional cues given by our typed dialogue. The fight takes hours, because the system keeps crashing. I say a line, then he does, then crash! And yet we keep on, doggedly.

74 Article7-S I’d never realized how important daily routine is: dressing for work, sleeping normal hours. I’d never thought I relied so much on co-workers for company. I began to understand why long-term unemployment can be so damaging, why life without an externally supported daily plan can lead to higher rates of drug abuse, crime, suicide. To restore balance to my life, I force myself back into the real world. I call people, arrange to meet with the few remaining friends who haven’t fled New York City. I try to at least get to the gym, so as to set apart the weekend from the rest of my week. I arrange interviews for stories, doctor’s appointments -- anything to get me out of the house and connected with others.

75 Article8-S But sometimes being face to face is too much. I see a friend and her ringing laughter is intolerable -- the noise of conversation in the restaurant, unbearable. I make my excuses and flee. I re-enter my apartment and run to the computer as though it were a place of safety. I click on the modem, the once-annoying sound of the connection now as pleasant as my favorite tune. I enter my password. The real world disappears.

76 After too long on the Net, even a phone call can be a shock. My boyfriend’s Liverpool accent suddenly becomes impossible to interpret after his easily understood words on screen; a secretary’s clipped tone seems more rejecting than I’d imagined it would be. Time itself becomes fluid -- hours become minutes, or seconds stretch into days. Weekends, once a highlight of my week, are now just two ordinary days. Article1_S_Popwin_My… What does the sentence imply? The author has become more familiar with the virtual world than the real world. A VIRTUAL LIFE

77 In fact, at times I have spent as long as three weeks alone at home, going out only to get mail and buy newspapers and groceries. I watched most of the endless snowstorm of ’96 on TV. But after a while, life itself begins to feel unreal. I start to feel as though I’ve become one with my machines, taking data in, spitting them back out, just another link in the Net. Others on line report the same symptoms. We start to feel an aversion to outside forms of socializing. We have become the Net critics’ worst nightmare. Article3_S_Popwin_We.. Paraphrase the sentence. We have got into a situation that critics of the Net describe as most dreadful.

78 What first seemed like a luxury, crawling from bed to computer, not worrying about hair, and clothes and face, has become a form of escape, a lack of discipline. And once you start replacing real human contact with cyber- interaction, coming back out of the cave can be quite difficult. I find myself shyer, more cautious, more anxious. Or, conversely, when suddenly confronted with real live humans, I get overexcited, speak too much, interrupt. Article4_S_Popwin_And… 1.What does “cyber-interaction” mean? 2.What does “cave” here refer to? 3.Paraphrase the second part of the sentence. “Cyber-” is a prefix which means “of the computer”. “Cyber-interaction” means the contact via the computer. “Cave” here refers figuratively to the isolated life of the virtual world. Returning to normal society from the isolated life of the virtual world can be quite a problem.

79 I constantly worry if I am dressed appropriately, that perhaps I’ve actually forgotten to put on a skirt and walked outside in the T-shirt and underwear I sleep and live in. At times, I turn on the television and just leave it to talk away in the background, something that I’d never done previously. The voices of the programs are comforting, but then I’m jarred by the commercials. I find myself sucked in by soap operas, or needing to keep up with the latest news and the weather. “Dateline,” “Frontline,” “Nightline,” CNN, New York 1, every possible angle of every story over and over and over, even when they are of no possible use to me.

Give the Chinese equivalents for “Dateline”, “Frontline”, “Nightline”, “CNN”, “New York 1”. “ 每日新闻 ” 、 “ 一线新闻 ” 、 “ 夜间新闻 ” 、 “ 有线新闻电视网 ” 、 “ 纽约 一套 ” 。

81 Article5_S_Popwin_What … I constantly worry if I am dressed appropriately, that perhaps I’ve actually forgotten to put on a skirt and walked outside in the T-shirt and underwear I sleep and live in.

Work moves into the background. I decide to check my . What does this sentence mean? It means work becomes less important.

82 On line, I find myself attacking everyone in sight. I am bad-tempered, and easily angered. I find everyone on my mailing list insensitive, believing that they’ve forgotten that there are people actually reading their wounding remarks. I don’t realize that I’m projecting until after I’ve been embarrassed by someone who politely points out that I’ve attacked her for agreeing with me. When I’m in this state, I fight my boyfriend as well, misinterpreting his intentions because of the lack of emotional cues given by our typed dialogue. The fight takes hours, because the system keeps crashing. I say a line, then he does, then crash! And yet we keep on, doggedly. Article6_S_Popwin_when… Why does the author misinterpret her boyfriend’s intention? Because the typed dialogue lacks the emotion that is expressed and implied in the real dialogue.

83 I’d never realized how important daily routine is: dressing for work, sleeping normal hours. I’d never thought I relied so much on co-workers for company. I began to understand why long-term unemployment can be so damaging, why life without an externally supported daily plan can lead to higher rates of drug abuse, crime, suicide. To restore balance to my life, I force myself back into the real world. I call people, arrange to meet with the few remaining friends who haven’t fled New York City. I try to at least get to the gym, so as to set apart the weekend from the rest of my week. I arrange interviews for stories, doctor’s appointments -- anything to get me out of the house and connected with others. Article7_S_Popwin_I… What does “story” here refer to? “Story” here refers to any descriptive article in a newspaper or an event, a situation, etc. suitable for such an article.
