Pre-class (3) And added to all the aforementioned paradoxes you have a small army of child prodigies who were graduated from college when they were 15, and are now obscure clerks in accounting departments. And you have a small arm of men who were too stupid or indolent to get into or finish college and who are today presidents of the firms that hire the prodigies.

Step one: Ben Flies a Kite (1) 1. Reading the article in teams. The students are asked to read the text together in teams. They may discuss the problems if any at this time. 2. Check the team-reading. Ask each team to read one part of the article together. Pay attention to their pronunciation and intonation. 3. Explanation to the article. (Notes)
Step one : Ben Flies a Kite (2) Notes: 1). If only Ben could proved it! This means ‘How wonderful it would be if Ben could prove it.’ The subjunctive ‘could prove’ is used to express a wish. We use the past tense form here when we are actually speaking of the present. e.g. If only I could fly! If only we had more time! If only I knew how to do it!
Step one: Ben Flies a Kite (3) 2). Perhaps he could prove it by flying a kite during a thunderstorm. The preposition ‘by’ has the idea of ‘by means of’. Other examples: He earned his living by doing odd jobs. He escaped by disguising himself as one of the guards.
Step one: Ben Flies a Kite (4) 3). Ben thought the wire could attract the lightening. Attract vt. to cause to draw near or adhere; direct to or toward itself or oneself: 吸引 e.g. She was attracted by the novel advertisement. Vt. To arouse or compel the interest, admiration, or attention of: 招引 e.g. Flowers attract many bees.
Step one: Ben Flies a Kite (5) 4). I’m afraid it’s not going to work. ‘Work’ here means ‘ have the desired effect’, ‘do the job it is supposed to do’. It can be used of a machine, a telephone, some apparatus or of a plan, a scheme, a method. e.g. They tried different methods, but none worked. No matter what he did, the machine would not work. I didn’t think your idea would work, but actually it did.
Step one: Ben Flies a Kite (6) 5). He cried out, taking his hand away quickly. The participle phrase ‘taking his hand away quickly’ is used here as an adverbial to denote an action that happens at the same time as ‘crying’. This is found chiefly in written English. Other examples: Entering the room, he found he didn’t know anyone present. He waved and cried out, trying to attract the attention of passing cars.

Often he sat up in his room reading most of the night in order to return a book before his employer noticed it was missing. ‘Sit up’ means “ stay up after the usual time for going to bed’ 迟睡；熬夜 e.g. The doctor sat up all night with the patient. 医生彻夜守护病人。 The students sat up late watching TV yesterday evening.
Step two: The Education of Benjamin Franklin ( 3) 2).

Vt, prohibit 禁止 Forbid smoking on trains. Forbid, forbade, forbidden
