2017年7月5日托福独立写作范文：Students aged 13-18 are taught different subjects by different teachers while younger students are taught by only one teacher all day long. Some people suggest it would benefit young students to be taught by different teachers. Do you agree with this view? Why or why not? (17.07.15A)
As far as I am concerned, the method proposed by some people that students aged under 12 should be taught by different teachers offers a practical solution for educating these kids in a better way. There are one major problem with the traditional method - one teacher in charge of all the subjects.
Chances are that being taught by only one teacher would bore students aged under 12 both in a physical and mental way. From 6 to 12 years old, as children continue to grow, we can notice new and exciting abilities that they develop. While children may progress at different rates and have diverse interests, typically, they are becoming increasingly interested in talking to others. It is true that different classmates of the same or opposite gender are perfect targets for these young students to mix or play with, their teacher, an adult they see throughout each school day, also ought to be someone of a novelty. If all the subjects are taught by only one teacher, then dislike or even aversion towards would gradually arise in some students. A small proportion would simply dislike this teacher’s physical appearance while others may likely have an emotional aversion to the teacher’s teaching style.
For instance, the teacher may be considered by not a few students as “roaring like a lion” whenever he scolds his students. Despite the fact that the teacher believes discipline serves as a deterrent so as to make students take his work seriously, his roaring teaching method would certainly frighten students. In this case, it is fairly difficult for this teacher to change his method or for students to adjust to this strict teacher. After all, one-size-fits-all approach seldom works. Instead, hiring new teachers to bring freshness to these kids would be a better solution. Since they are able to encounter different teachers through the course of the day, they can certainly get along well with these teachers in spite of one certain teacher’s strictness. This is also partly because there would be one or two nicer teachers whose appearance can neutralize that teacher’s shouting influence.
As is stated above，younger students’ being taught by only one teacher has a serious weakness, and this problem can be addressed by letting different teachers in charge of different subjects. Apparently, these teachers can provide different specialized training for different subjects, thereby laying a solid foundation for the primary education.
There is quite a strange phenomenon that students who are under teenage are treated differently just due to their “particularity”. It is true that the teachers of younger students are given special mission but, contrary to the opinion from most people, I insists that younger students can be better educated if they have different teachers.
The first benefit is that they can experienced various teaching method from different teachers. Under the schooling of single teaching method, students’ mind will be limited deeply, which decrease their creativity and cut off the possibility to further development. Worse still, if the only teacher go something wrong, there will be no chance to correct the mistakes due to absence of comparison. On the contrary, if several teachers show different personalities and characters to students, they will know comprehensively about the world, the people and themselves. Time and time again, they will be arguably equipped with the skills to tell right apart from wrong. Since our civilization allows diversification, the growth that younger people are expected with should also be diversified.
Given the professional knowledge in different fields, teachers should also be asked to do what they truly major in. We always expect that a man should be generalists rather than specialists, but the fact is the formers usually do the things worse and, in other words, less professionally than those specialists do to some degree. Similarly, the teachers who are skilled in logical thinking like math and science may be poor at art and music. With the help of those teachers, students surely receive better education and learn deeply in each subject, despite their interest and preference. Clearly, professional events suit those professionals.
Some may claim that as a result of their young age, younger students are more likely to have close relationship with the one who they think are reliable. However, is that good news? Kids who are always regarded over-dependent to someone are under overprotection actually. Relying on certain and being afraid of learning new things from other “strangers” largely reduce their process to view the world, which stop them from being mental mature and being independent. After all, regardless of their young age, students are not toddlers anymore.
All in all, given their comprehensive development in knowledge and personality , students should be surround by many teachers who have their own traits. (390 words)
