Introduction Paragraph Writing - Алеша vs Владимир

Introduction Paragraph Writing

Предложите друг другу по три формулировки для написания вводной части эссе.

Первая сторона:

Parents should select their children's friends carefully to make sure those friends reflect proper values.

Вторая сторона:

I do not think that parents should select their children's friends because it would be harmful to children. Parents should be interested in their children's friends but let their children pick their own friends.

Learning about the past has no value for those of us living in the present. Нужно сузить тезис, дополнив каким-либо уточнением. См. образец

To be successful learning about the past has no value for those of us living in the present.

I do not think that learning about the past has no value for those of us living in the present. Knowledge of the past keeps us from repeating of its mistakes.

Best friends have no secrets from each other. Нужно сузить тезис, дополнив каким-либо уточнением. См. образец.

Best friends should have no secrets from each other because secret is a sign of distrust that destroys friendship.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/11/04 08:44

I do believe that best friends should have no secrets from each other because secret is a sign of distrust that destroys friendship. I also do believe that secret is not a sign of distrust and does not destroy friendship.

Not all learning should take place in the classroom, because knowledge gained from personal exrerience is far better than knowledge gained from classroom teacher instruction.

AlexAlex, 2017/11/04 16:14, 2017/11/04 16:21

I do agree that not all learning should take place in the classroom. But I do not agree that the knowledge gained from personal experience is far better than the knowledge gained from classroom teacher instruction. I think both kinds of knowledge have their pros and cons.

Parents should not have the right to refuse to vaccinate their children because the refusal puts children's health at risk.

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/11/06 15:32

I do not agree that parents should not have the right to refuse to vaccinate their children because, though children's health is more important than parents' rights, parents are responsible for their children's health and they know better their children's health state to decide if vaccination is harmless or not to their children.

It is necessary to block the development of the AI, because it leads to unemployment.

AlexAlex, 2017/11/06 18:31, 2017/11/06 18:33

In my opinion it is not necessary to block the development of the AI because of potential unemploymen it can cause. Firstly, history shows us that it's impossible to stop progress. And secondly, AI along the way will create many new jobs.

I believe that homeschooling is much better than public school system as the latter is like a prison, it traumatizes children's psyche and causes disgust for learning.
