用笔记下阅读文章中的supportingideas对于我们听力部分有很好的促进作用，听力讲座中的反驳可以绕开阅读文章中的supporting details，但怎样也绕不开supporting ideas。找到了阅读文章的各个要点后，考生可以对听力讲座的分论点进行预测，虽然不会太精确，但是可以指出一个大概的分方向。
As you read:
Take notes on your scratch paper.
Look for the main idea of the reading passage. The main ides often has to do with some policy or practice or some position on an issue. Or it may have to do with proposing some overall hypothesis about the way some process or procedure works or should work or how some natural phenomenon is believed to work.
See how this main idea is evaluated or developed.
You do not need to memorize the reading passage. It will reappear on your computer screen when it is time to write.
Note points in the passage that either support the rain idea or provide reasons to doubt the main idea. Typically the main idea will be developed with three points.
In an effort to encourage ecologically sustainable forestry practices ,an international organization started issuing certifications to wood companies that meet high ecological standards by conserving resources and recycling materials .Companies that receive this certification can attract customers by advertising their product as eco-certified. Around the world .many wood companies have adopted new ,ecologically friendly practices in order to receive eco-certification. However, it is unlikely that wood companies in the United Stated will do the same .forseveral reasons.
ideas应该是被提炼出来的看法，而不是一些起支撑作用的信息。因此，自查details的方法就是它是否支持thesis statement。有的时候supporting ideas是thesis statement的一部分(下面这段文章就是一个典型的例子)，有的时候supporting ideas从不同方面支持thesis statement。但是如果提取的是details，就没有这样直接的逻辑关系，则不必做笔记。
First, American consumers are exposed to so advertising that they would not value or even pay attention to the eco-certification label. Because so many mediocre products are labeled “new” or “improved” , American consumers do not place much trust in advertising claims in general.
Second ,eco-certified wood will be more expensive than uncertified wood because in order to earn eco-certification, a wood company must pay to have in business examined by a certification agency. This additional cost gets passed on to consumers—American consumers tend to be strongly motivated by price ,and therefore they are likely to choose cheaper uncertified wood products. Accordingly, American wood companies will prefer to keep their prices low rather than obtain eco-certification.
Third, although some people claim that it always makes good business sense for American companies to keep up with the developments in the rest of the world .this argument is not convincing. Pursuing certification would make sense for American wood companies only if they marketed most of their products abroad. But that is not the case –American wood businesses sell most of their products in the United States, catering to a very large customer base that is satisfied with the merchandise.
Supporting Idea 1
exposed to so much advertising→do not place much trust
Supporting Idea 2
more expensive→company, pay→pass on to consumers→choose cheaper
Supporting Idea 3
only if, market, abroad, ∠businesses, sell most in US
