1.What kinds of characters are popular in modern society?
2.What qualities should a good teacher have?
3.Do you think parents' character can affect young people’s development?
4.Would you like to develop a specific personality in the future?
1.Impatience is the most obvious trait in the fast paced contemporary society. It is a pity that the corporal punishments of children for misbehaviors become harsher and much more commonplace. This immediate response with violence to indiscipline risks leaving behind a shadow of a childhood which may lead to misanthropy. What’s more, the crazy tempo of life also gives rise to a large number of workaholics who grab sandwiches and rush through lunches and have set aside no time for family bonding. If left unfettered, these two situations will become worse.
2.As pillars of the education system, teachers are commissioned with the vital task of providing education to youngsters. Qualified teachers should have a good personality and an appropriate teaching method. A good teacher’s proper behaviors, attitudes and comments on social issues will absolutely set examples for students who accordingly can develop their correct philosophy of life and build up indispensable quality, such as teamwork, tolerance and perseverance. In terms of teaching approach, teachers should tap students’ potential and motivate them to learn more efficiently and effectively because the nature of education is about inspiring instead of cramming.
3.Parents play a significant role in children’s character building because juveniles will imitate adults consciously and subconsciously. This can be proven by the fact that many criminals suffer domestic violence in childhood and in their growth when they encounter difficulties and frustrations, they have no other way but resort to force. By contrast, if parents are loving and caring, kids will follow examples and when their peers take away their toys or, when they grow up, their jobs, they will try to understand, forgive or have a talk with the one they may not like.
4.In the future, I want to be more of a team player. In the past years of education, I was taught to be the number one in every field, be it sports ability or academic scores. To stand out from the peers means scholarships and a better career prospect. In spite of the potentials brought into full play, I might become a little bit too aggressive to cooperate with others in order to achieve a same goal. If competitiveness goes too far, athletes may push their body past natural limits and go away from health, while students can commit suicide as a consequence of failing the exams.
