When a thought has found words
Poetry (诗歌)is the forgotten child of literature. Few people read it for pleasure. In Western high schools, poetry is s 1.taught because it is considered to be out of date and have little to do with the life of today's students.
In China, however, poetry is s2. an important part of the curriculum (课程). Recently, the Ministry of Education has i3.the number of old Chinese poems for students to memorize and recite, from 14 to 72. Why is it important to learn poems?
First of all, poetry is a necessary part of learning traditional Chinese c4.. It is a path to understanding your history and your society. It is also the key to understanding the thoughts and feelings that are c5. to everyone but that we may be unable to express—the joy of Li Bai dancing with the moon, for example. Everyone has feelings of joy, love, loneliness, sadness and even anger, and a good poem can put those feelings into w6.and bring us self-understanding.
Poems can also express beauty. In a few short 17. even something common can become beautiful. Here is a poem called Fog by Carl Sandberg: The fog comes/ on silent haunches (弓腰)/ and then moves on. Yes, fog does move smoothly, silently and like a cat, and Sandberg c8. that feeling and image (形象),and makes it beautiful.
Of course, to really enjoy poetry, it has to be read aloud. After all, a poem is really just a song without music. Most a9.poetry, like Homer's Epics (《荷马史诗》)and China's Book of Songs (《诗经》),was spoken for hundreds of years before it was w10.. The American poet Robert Frost said, "Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words."
Stay Home Studying
17-year-old Liu Yu was a high school student in China. She planned to go back to school on February 17 to prepare for the 2020 college entrance examination. However, the Ministry of Education told people in late January that the spring term for all schools would be put off because of the serious disease in China. So Liu Yu, like all the other students, had to stay at home.
However, Liu and her classmates didn't fall behind their plans and began studying full-time again-only from home. It may have become the largest online teaching experiment the country has ever seen.
To go with students' new learning environment, a "cloud platform(云平台)" was started using on February 17. It provided students with education resources covering all school subjects. But some students had difficulty going to the website or using smart phones. A TV channel by China Education Television started airing classes on February 17. So students could have classes and study online or on TV at home.
But the online platform and TV channel don't just offer school knowledge. Students can also learn how to protect themselves from the disease and psychological health during this period, according to the Ministry of Education.
For some students, the chance to study from home has had some unexpected benefits. Yuan Siyi, who lives in Hubei province, used to get up before 6 am on school days, but since starting online courses, she got more hours of sleep every morning. "I like online teaching because I have more freedom at home, "Yuan told TEENS. She began her all-day courses on February 3.
However, online teaching and learning has its weaknesses compared to studying in a traditional classroom. "My motivation(动力)to study is stronger when my classmates are around me and all working very hard," Yuan said.
According to the Ministry of Education, online courses are just a short-time way of learning during the disease. When the new term begins, schools will return to classroom teaching.
