在平时的练习中,积累一些sat写作素材对SAT作文备考很有必要。积累并不是一味的记忆和重复,而是要在理解素材的基础上灵活运用素材,从而在考场上灵活转化为自己的语言为文章增色。一起来看看这篇关于名人事例的sat 写作素材吧。

  Christopher Reeve 因在70年代成功塑造无所不能的超人形象而一夜走红,却于1995年的一场事故中严重摔伤。十年轮椅上的生活不能不说是一种痛苦和折磨,但Christopher是一位真正的勇士。他置信终有一天自己可以脱离轮椅,站起来拥抱妻子和孩子,因此勇敢地和病魔斗争。同时,为了帮助其他和他同病相连的人,他大力资助瘫痪医学研究中心。

  Christopher Reeve starred as “Superman” in 1977, making his name well-known worldwide. However, he became a real “superman” after an accident in 1995 which made him paralyzed from neck down. Believing that he never belonged to a wheelchair, Christopher Reeve did intense exercise everyday to keep his body strong in order to receive future treatments. No matter how slim the chance was for him to stand up, Christopher never wavered in his determination. Not only had he set a good example for others by fighting off a number of serious infections but also he had used his name to benefit others by establishing organizations, such as Christopher Reeve Foundation and Reeve-Irvine Research Center, which helped speed up spinal cord research and improve disabled people’s living conditions. Although he died of heart attack without recovering from paralysis in 2004, he taught others the importance of courage, persistence and optimism.

  这个例子能用到的题目包括 “adversity” “optimistic” “lucky” “hero” “ help others” “strive”等。例如:

  2005 年10月 “Is success in life earned or do people succeed because they are lucky?”

  2006 年 1月 “Can any obstacle or disadvantage be turned into something good?”

  2006 年4月 “What do you think motivates people to do their best?”

  2006 年12月 “Is it better for people to be realistic or optimistic?”

  2006 年12月 “Is happiness something over which people have no control, or can people choose to be happy?”

  2007 年6月 “Is there a value in celebrating certain individuals as heroes?”

  2007 年10月“Is identity something people are born with or given, or is it something people create for themselves?”

  2008 年1月“Is the effort involved in pursuing any goal valuable, even if the goal is not reached?”

  2008 年12 月“Do we only help others in order to help ourselves in some way?”

  2009 年1月“Is striving to achieve a goal always the best course of action, or should people give up if they are not making progress?”

  2009年 6月“Is it best for people to accept who they are and what they have, or should people always strive to better themselves?”

  2009年11月“Do society and other people benefit when individuals pursue their own goals?”

  以上题目之所以可以用“超人”的故事作为论据,就是因为在面对“misfortune”(不幸地瘫痪) ,遇到“something over which people have no control”(灾难)的时候,Christopher采取了“optimistic”(不接受现实,积极改变)的态度,因此他 “choose to be happy”(选择努力去获得幸福)。尽管最终“the goal is not reached”(他没有能打败病魔),他做出的努力非常宝贵。他树立了榜样,于是“society and other people benefit”(他为医学研究做出了贡献,帮助了其他人), 他成为人们眼中的 “hero”。
