在SAT北美考试中,作文考试也是考试的重点内容。那么如果我们想要写出更优秀的作文。那么真题的练习以及相应的范文学习,对于我们的备考帮助更大。那么具体的北美SAT写作的高分范文内容有哪些呢?下面小编为大家整理了详细的内容,供大家参考!

  从 2018 年 5 月的亚太和北美 SAT Essay Writing 的选文来看,CB 最近选择的英美报刊文章难度明显有所增加。

  以这篇 5 月北美考题为例,文章的论述不是各位考生所熟悉的方式,文中明显的 statistical evidence、 experts’ testimony 几乎不见 ,同时 research results from credible sources 并不是直接为文章的 central claim 服务,不少同学准备好的“模版”几乎没有用武之地;

  此外,文章没有以往考试中的 emotional appeals ,所以想要靠简单的摘选几个 word choice 来评价作者使用的 persuasive and stylistic elements 也无从下手。

  所以,再次强调,读懂文章是第一步!写作靠模版的方法万万不可!很多同学认为 OG 四篇范文搞懂了就可以了,事实证明, CB 不见得完全按照 OG 所选择的文章思路出题。

  以下是对这篇文章的整体解读,供各位备考同学参考:

  1、The scientific evidence ongenetically engineered food, which has been around for two decades, indicates that it is as safe for human consumption as any other food.

  A California bill that would require the labeling of bioengineered food — whose DNA has been modified in the laboratory to introduce certain traits — caters to a scare campaign that is not based on solid evidence.

  这一段主要是在引出话题。作者开宗明义地指出:转基因食品是安全的,而这一,而加州最近的法案并不是基于科学研究。请注意,作者这里的用词: 转基因食品在作者口中为Bioengineered food,这里的措辞不妨可以评价一下。

  2、If a consumer has personal concerns about genetically modified food, there are other ways to avoid it. Trader Joe's, for example, has announced that food sold under its label contains no genetically engineered ingredients.

  There are apps and Internet sites to inform consumers about other foods. And companies that do not bioengineer their foods are certainly free to say so on their labels. But the science does not support mandatory labeling.

  这一段是在说反对转基因食品并没有侵害消费者的选择权,作者用 Trader Joe’s 说事儿,Trader Joe’s 是美国最受欢迎的零售商,在美国家喻户晓。(这里再次提醒考生:北美考的文章经常涉及美国社会、历史等背景知识;所以,笔者并不推荐赴美考试,尤其是写作部分来说,弊大于利)。

  此外,在正确读懂这篇文章的时候,同学们需要调集一些背景知识,比如关于“转基因食物”相关问题,社会主要争论的背景知识需要了解的,否则这篇文章看懂不易)

  3、State Sen. Noreen Evans (D-SantaRosa) has said that her bill doesn't make judgments about whether genetically engineered food is inherently good or bad but merely informs consumers.

  Yet the wording says otherwise. It's full of negative declarations about such food, with no mention of the positives. "United States government scientists have stated that the artificial insertion of genetic material into plants via genetic engineering can increase the levels of known toxicants or allergens in foods and create new toxicants or allergens with consequent health concerns," the bill says.

  It doesn't note that hundreds of studies, many by independent scientists who took no industry money, have found no credible evidence that bioengineered food has actually done any of those things, or is dangerous in any way to human health.

  Reviews by the American Medical Assn.,the Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization and the National Academy of Sciences have all concluded that genetically engineered food appears to be as safe as any other.

  这一段很重要。作者提出了矛盾焦点:转基因食物是否安全,作者引用了多家机构的研究成果,证实转基因食物是安全的,从科学角度驳斥了加州议员 Noreen Evans。

  以上就是关于“2018年10月SAT北美作文”的内容,希望通过上述内容的学习,大家能够更好的掌握SAT写作的高分秘诀,在接下来的考试中,能够取得高分。
