[by:www.tingvoa.com - VOA英语网] [00:00.00]喜欢VOA英语网,就把tingvoa.com复制到QQ个人资料中!unit 8 [00:02.77]Creativity [00:06.12]Part Two [00:09.29]Listening-Centered Activities [00:13.64]Listening I [00:17.32]Exercise 1 [00:20.81]Directions: [00:24.30]Listen to the passage and fill in the following table. [00:29.70]In China, education is considered a race [00:35.28]Students have to begin as early as possible [00:40.03]and have to proceed as quickly as possible along the trace [00:45.61]The education system is considered to be successful [00:50.98]when many students have reached the finish line as quickly as possible [00:57.38]In America, we recognize the race too [01:02.93]but we feel that the students should have a chance to wander much more [01:09.59]even if not all of them reach the finish line [01:14.70]As a result of their wandering, [01:19.06]some of the participants may have more to offer by the end of the race. [01:24.89]The advantage of the Chinese way [01:29.14]is that more students become proficient and reach the finish line [01:35.29]The disadvantage is that they have less to say or to show once they get there [01:42.56]The disadvantage of the American way is that many students never finish the race [01:50.27]The advantage is that some who do go "all the way" [01:56.39]have very interesting and original things to say when they get there. [02:03.44]Exercise 2 [02:06.76]Directions: [02:10.14]Listen to the passage again and discuss the following question. [02:16.33]Listening II [02:20.22]Exercise 1 [02:23.71]Directions: [02:27.60]Listen to the passage and fill in the blanks. [02:32.50]Many people mistakenly think that creativity [02:38.90]is the ability to think thoughts that no one else has ever thought [02:46.03]In fact, creativity is just a way of looking at the ordinary in a different way [02:55.36]Alex Osborn, one of the pioneers in the study of creativity and imagination, [03:03.82]discovered that almost everyone is more creative than he thinks [03:11.30]We usually don't recognize our good ideas as creativity in action [03:19.80]For example, in a large mid-western city [03:25.20]a group of thieves had invented a very efficient system [03:31.36]They could go into a clothing store, [03:36.76]take all the clothes away and be out of the store before the police arrive [03:43.06]Then a young man had an idea [03:47.56]He told stores to change the way they hung the clothe [03:53.71]He told them to place some hangers with the hook facing in [04:01.02]and some with the hook facing out [04:05.52]The next time the police arrived, [04:09.37]they found the young thieves removing the clothes one at a time [04:15.42]Everyday creativity is just looking at things from a new point of view. [04:23.16]Exercise 2 [04:26.58]Directions: [04:30.00]Listen to the passage again and discuss the following questions. [04:36.84]1)What do you think of the young man's solution? 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20121227/99794.html
