虽然ACT写作部分为选择性的,但确有不少学校都要求提供,这个满分为6分的写作,也确实能折射出考生的一定能力和水平,毕竟美国大学学习包含大量的写作.现发布一篇ACT官方认为可以得满分的作文如下:

The Senior Itch—the incurable chaffing we all crave to scratch. The cure? Graduation. As we progress through our high school years growing with wisdom and maturity, we all yearn for freedom. Yet what we desire most is not always what is best for us. Although most won't want to admit it, extending our high school career to five years would make an important and beneficial impact on our future. With the four years that are currently provided, there is not enough time for motivated students to accomplish their goals before college. Merely being accepted by a selective college or university requires much pre-planned effort that is literally unavailable to students already concerned with grades and other activities. Colleges look most thoroughly at how an applicant used his or her four years of high school. Leadership roles, a dedication to an organization, and a well-rounded, involved student is appealing to the most elite educational institutions. Often, students desire leadership positions in numerous extra-curricular organizations, but face limiting regulations on the number of offices they may hold at one time. Even if a school doesn't limit students' involvement, students eventually reach the limits of what a 24-hour day can hold. Too often, students cannot participate

as much as they want in as many extra-curriculars as they want because there just isn't time. With an extra year of high school, those involved in more than one activity could successfully find the time to contribute to and to lead each one. Colleges would see a longer, more developed individual's resume that included a time for each of their interests. The organizations would benefit from stronger student participation and the students would be recognized for their true efforts as well. Because they struggle to gain leadership roles and become the well-rounded students colleges desire, the task of maintaining a respectable grade-point-average during high school is a struggle for many students. It is difficult to be involved in activities of interest while still keeping high grades. However, colleges don't consider this when they seek applicants with high grade-point-averages in their admissions pool. Elongating the span of high school would allow more students with both grades and activities on their agenda to spend more time focusing on each separate interest. Rather than feeling forced to crunch a large block of "weighted" classes together in hopes of elevating their GPA, students would find more time to spread out their difficult classes and make the most of every single year. With less pressure and more time, grades would improve for all dedicated

students, as would the enjoyment of studying those subjects and the

increased retainment of what we learned in those classes. Education aside, many high school students find that four years is not enough time to accomplish their varied goals. For instance, a student may desire a job in addition to school. The money they earn may help pay their way through college. With such a short preparation period before college, they can hardly be expected to make a successful life for themself without the proper funds. Also, many students are

interested in community service prior to attending college, but find they do not have enough time in the four-year high school period. Colleges are drawn to students with a rich assortment of community service and evidence of responsibilities such as holding a job, but students have a hard time finding the hours to put into these tasks. High school is the foundation of the rest of our life. Like money in the bank, the investment of an additional year when we are young can make all the difference. With the additional time, motivated students would be able to become more involved in their schools, boost their grades, and find the time for a job and community service. Colleges admire these attributes, and for the sake of high-schoolers' acceptance into these institutions, more time should be provided for their

endeavors. High school students work hard toward their future. Another year would help ensure their success.

官方评语: This essay demonstrates effective skill in responding to the writing task.

The essay takes a position on the issue (extending our high school career to five years would make an important and beneficial impact on our future) and offers a critical context for discussion (Yet what we desire most is not always what is best for us). Complexity is addressed as the writer

anticipates and responds to a counter-argument to the discussion (Even if a school doesn't limit students' involvement, students eventually reach the

limits of what a 24-hour day can hold). Development is ample, specific and logical, discussing most ideas fully in terms of the resulting implications (Colleges would see a longer, more developed individual's resume that included a time for each of their interests. The organizations would benefit from stronger student participation and the students would be recognized for their true efforts as well). Clear focus on the specific issue in the prompt is maintained. Organization of the essay is clear though predictable. Most of the essay demonstrates logical sequencing of ideas (It is difficult to be involved in activities of interest while still keeping high grades. However, colleges don't consider this when they seek applicants with high grade-point-averages in

their admissions pool. Elongating the span of high school would allow more students with both grades and activities on their agenda to spend more time focusing on each separate interest). Transitions are used throughout the essay (Although, Even if, However, Rather than) and are often integrated into the essay (Because they struggle to gain leadership roles and become the well-rounded students colleges desire, the task of maintaining a respectable grade-point-average during high school is a struggle for many students). The conclusion and especially the introduction are effective and well developed. The essay shows a good command of language, with precise and varied

sentences and word choice (The Senior Itch—the incurable chaffing we all crave to scratch. . . . Merely being accepted by a selective college or university requires much pre-planned effort that is literally unavailable to students already concerned with grades and other activities).

There are few errors to distract the reader.


第二篇:“我”与美国高考——SAT第一名与ACT满分学生经验谈 3000字

CHENGDUEDUCATION

关注在美国考了第一名的少年,是要炒作美国状元吗?不,不是!编者是以一种借览的心态向校长和老师展示另一种学习和成长状态。

在武汉的徐柠汐,备考SAT时的不被理解,与成功后媒体的追捧、学校的嘉奖形成鲜明的对比。同时对比鲜明的田亚男,按母亲的话来说“不是个中国标准的好学生。”

与美国高考“我”

—SAT第一名与ACT满分学生经验谈——

SAT考第一,不意味我会被录取

10多本书。(摘自《信息时报》)

趣就去了!”他会抽时间给社区的初中孩子

补数学或是到医院做义工。总之,花在学习上的时间是少之又少。学习的秘诀在于专心

那田亚男有什么学习秘诀?

“学的时候就其他什么都不想了,专心地学。”想了半天,田亚男总结出这样一个“秘诀”。妈妈举了个具体例子:“他学习的时候,你喊他他是不会答应的,就好像根本没听到一样,已经完全沉进去了!”

田亚男说,他希望能被麻省理工学院的生物化学系录取。“我想寻求新的东西。“美国全球高考第一名”是个中国小姑娘!武汉外国语学校17岁的高中生徐柠汐一夜成名。徐柠汐表示,目前还无法证实自己考了第一,美国方面没有通知她,对于最后会不会录取她,她自己也没有把握。

记者:中美两国有着不同的文化背景差异、教育模式也相差甚大,是什么原因促使你挑战这样一种考试?

徐柠汐(以下简称徐):高一结束时,学校组织我们去英国一个学校进行暑期夏令营,看到中国和国外的差距太大了,感觉自己的人生观受到很大的冲击,回来后就作了这样的打算。

记者:挑战美国高考对于中国孩子来说还是有较大难度的吧?准备了多长时间?

徐:的确是有些难。去年11月份我下定决心备考后,就到处找资料,幸好爸爸有位朋友过年要从美国回来,就帮我带了几本书,我自己又到网上书店去购买了一些。从去年6月全面备战到今年10月14日考完。美国高考是申请美国名校学习及奖学金的重要参考依据。

记者:感觉美国的高考与中国的高考有什么不同?

徐:美国高考(SAT考试)全部用英语进行,考试分两部分,第一部分考题包括美国语文———英语(包括选择题和作文)和数学两科,满分共计2400分;第二部分考试是选考科目,包括物理、化学、历史等多科,我选了数学、物理和历史。

美国的语文有很多选择题,如果真正掌握了考试的方式,在应考上并不难,这比起中国高考的语文要容易得多,中国的语文作文和阅读占了很大分量,这也是中国孩子高考语文不容易得高分的原因。但因为美国语文试卷是全英文的,文化差异和理解成为一个障碍,在做题时并不是很容易,但好在自己做了很多功课,仅考试前就做了20多套题,因此游刃有余。

美国高考的数学、物理等理科非常简单,他们的覆盖面很浅,比如涵数,只要知道概念就可以了,我们国家的高考要求相对要深一些,数学习题还要研究很多刁钻的题型。

美国高考的历史相对于中国孩子来说要难一些,因为他们考的是美国历史和世界史,世界史是从古代一直到现代,中国孩子大多没有学过美国历史,世界史也只是学了现代部分。要想重新系统的学习并备考是十分困难的,只能到图书馆中去找资料,看大量的书。仅这一门课,自己就看了

美国高考ACT得满分

在成都出生的田亚男及其家人透露学习

秘诀

20xx年4月27日,《芝加哥星报》

头版头条刊登了这样一条消息———《ACT获满分的学生—完——美》。新闻讲述了17岁的LucasTian在ACT考试中得到了36分的满分。ACT发言人克里斯汀说:“这样的成绩万中无一。”这样的成绩足可申请包括哈佛、耶鲁等名校在内的任何美国高校。

Tian出生在成都,他还有个中国名字———田亚男。“就是亚洲男人的意思。”爸爸田光龙希望他为亚洲人争光。他的爸爸是从双流县走出去的青年科学家,妈妈曾是武侯区五十中的数学老师。五年级后反感妈妈辅导

田亚男在接受采访时说,他教数学的妈妈从小就辅导他,所以他的功课总是在同学前面。“我以前的确是每天辅导他。中国很多家长都这样做。”妈妈的话中透出无奈,“但自从五年级后,他就很反感了。”

田亚男开始不按时回家。放学后,孩子们约好打篮球他也跟着去,晚上,妈妈罚他站在外面好好反省。“半小时后出去看,人都不晓得跑哪去了。”原来,小朋友一声招呼,田亚男又跑去玩了。“中国的教育观念和方法已不再适合他了。”从此,妈妈再也没有给田亚男补过课。每天下课,他都可以和同学一起游戏玩耍,或是参加学校的兴趣俱乐部。

不是个中国标准的好学生

五年前,田亚男一家移民到了美国。在美国,田亚男的成绩仍然保持全班第一。

初二时,他第一次参加了SAT考试。SAT满分是2400分,田亚男当时考了1200分,上州立大学不成问题。

今年2月11日,美国有287000名高三学生参加了ACT考试(注:美国的高中是四年),田亚男得了36分的满分。那一次,全美国有23个学生获得满分。

但按照中国人的标准,他实在不是个好学生。一放学就跑回家打电子游戏。电视剧也是他的最爱,最喜欢看的是烹调和体育类节目。天气好时,篮球场就是他流连忘返的地方。他有时会绘画,有时做做木工活。“嘿,说不定我会成为一个好木匠。”田亚男对爸妈说。

“他喜欢富有创造性的工作。”妈妈说,在美国,孩子只为兴趣而奋斗,工资高不高、工作体不体面都不管。”年前,田亚男给自己找了份工作———卖运动鞋。“觉得有兴

作为生物化学家,你就可以研究新疫苗或新药。”(摘自《成都商报》)

美国高考:

美国高考有两种形式,分别是ACT(AmericanCollegeTest)和SAT(ScholasticAssessmentTest),两者都可以一年考多次。

美国高校在录取新生时通常都要求申请者向学校提供其SAT或ACT考试成绩。据了解,SAT和ACT考试,分别由教育测量服务中心和美国大学测验社组织。两类考试都是一种着眼于对学生学习能力、性格取向和适应性测验的配置性考试。

全美有3500余所大学接受SAT成绩,有3300余所大学接受ACT成绩。名校普遍只承认SAT,ACT被承认的范围只是大多数普通高校。通常来说,SAT在美国东部高校中认同度较高,ACT则在西部高校获得较多认同。

SAT与ACT比较:

在美国,各大学都会建议申请者参加SAT或ACT考试。SAT和ACT都主要适合想到美国就读大学的高中生。

一般来讲,SAT考试注重于学生智力水平的测试,成绩更能够体现学生的智力水平和潜在的学习能力。和SAT不同,ACT考试与中学教学的关联程度稍高一些,更像一种学科考试,更强调考生对课程知识的掌握,同时也考虑到了对考生独立思考和判断能力的测试。

从难度上看,ACT比SAT更容易一些,尤其对中国考生来说,选择ACT考试可能更容易在短期内获得相对满意的成绩。

SATI、II考试共包括10部分:三部分阅读、三部分数学、三部分写作和一部分测试题;测试题部分打分方式和其他部分一样。ACT考试包括4部分:英语、数学、阅读和科学推理。

在考试内容方面,SAT的数学包括基础的几何和代数;ACT包括三角法。阅读方面,SAT的阅读包括短句填写、一短一长两篇评论文章和阅读理解;ACT阅读则包括四篇。在英语水平测试方面,SAT的写作主要包括一篇作文和问题回答。ACT主要是语法测试。

在SAT考试中,如果学生随意填写答案,要被倒扣分,ACT则不会。并且考试中心会把学生参加的所有SAT的成绩寄送

到大学,而学生可以有选择性地只将参加

ACT的最好成绩寄给学校。
