Lesson Summary for 6 February 2014

Key Learning Points

When finding points for essays,

  • cannot be too specific or too general
  • some overlapping with other points is fine, but not too much
e.g. certain things --> undesirable material --> pornography
       areas of our lives --> leisure --> relationships/work/school
In this case, "undesirable material" and "leisure" are the best choice to use as points.

1. Parents often believe that it is better to be safe than sorry. Do you consider young people to be too protected?

  • the word "too" means that: it is excessive, has a negative connotation
  • the words "young people" are the focus for the question
The first sentence is a statement, not a question, hence there is no need to argue your stand about it.

Key questions:
In what ways? What is considered too protected?

2. "The way we dress reveals who we are." What are your views?

  • the word "what": we are asked to state whether this is the case, not why it is/should it be the case (question prompt)

  1. Jing Yi, your learning points for the lesson are unclear. There is no need to summarise the content matter of the lesson. We are more interested in the skills as they are transferable to other contexts.
