III. Introduction to a Reading Skill(15minutes)

Reading for the Main Idea in a Paragraph

the first sentence of a paragraph,

in the middle

at the end of a paragraph


New

Example

Main Idea

1. Approaching the theme

Consequently, we work hard at the task of saving time. We produce a steady flow of labor-saving

devices; we communicate rapidly through faxes,

phone calls or emails rather than through personal

contacts, which though pleasant, take longer—

especially given our traffic-filled streets. We,

therefore, save most personal visiting for after-work hours or for social weekend gatherings. (Para. 5)

We work hard at the task of saving time.


New

Example

Main Idea

1. Approaching the theme

“We are slaves to nothing but the clock,” it has been said. Time is treated as if it were something almost real. We budget it, save it, waste it, steal it, kill it, cut it, account for it; we also charge for it. It is a precious resource. Many people have a rather acute sense of the shortness of each lifetime. Once the sands have run out of a person’s hourglass, they cannot be replaced. We want every minute to count. (Para. 2)

“We are slaves to nothing but the clock,” it has

been said. Time is treated as if it were something almost real. We budget it, save it, waste it, steal it, kill it, cut it, account for it; we also charge for it. It is a

precious resource. Many people have a rather acute sense of the shortness of each lifetime. Once the sands have run out of a person’s hourglass, they cannot

be replaced. We want every minute to count.

(Para. 2)

It (= Time) is a precious resource.


New

Example

Main Idea

1. Approaching the theme

Americans believe no one stands still. If you are not moving ahead, you are falling behind. This attitude

results in a nation of people committed to researching,

experimenting and exploring. Time is one of the two

elements that Americans save carefully, the other being labor. (Para. 1)

2. Exploring the sentences

almost real. We budget it, save it, waste

it, steal it, kill it, cut it, account for it;

we also charge for it. It is a precious

resource. (Para. 2)

figurative language

Metaphor, Parallelism


New

2. Exploring the sentences

Translation

人们似乎是把时间当作一个差不多是实实在在的东西来对待的。 我们安排时间、节约时间、浪费时间、挤抢时间、消磨时间、缩减时间、对时间的使用作出解释; 我们还要因付出时间而收取费用。时间是一种宝贵的资源。

3. Reflecting on the ideas of time

  • Rush

  • Swallows may have gone, but there is

  • a time of return; willow trees may

  • have died back, but there is a time

  • of regreening; peach blossoms may

  • have fallen, but they will bloom again.

  • Now, you the wise, tell me,

  • why should our days leave us,

  • never to return?

  • If they had been stolen by someone,

  • who could it be? Where could

  • he hide them? If they had made the escape

  • themselves, then where could they stay at the

  • moment? (translated by Zhu Chunshen)

燕子去了,有再来的时候;

杨柳枯了,有再青的时候;

桃花谢了,有再开的时候。

但是,聪明的,你告诉我,

我们的日子为什么一去不复返呢?

——是有人偷了他们罢:那是谁?

又藏在何处呢?是他们自己逃走了:现在又到了哪

里呢? (朱自清《匆匆》)


New

3. Reflecting on the ideas of time

A leisure lifestyle is of course far

cheaper than a luxurious one.

To enjoy life of leisure, one would

only need to have the sensibility of

an artist. To while away a whole

afternoon in a fully relaxed state,

doing absolutely nothing.

Now, that's an art.

By Lin Yutang “The Importance of Living”

享受悠闲生活当然比享受奢侈生活便宜得多。要享受悠闲的生活只要一种艺术家的性情,在一种全然悠闲的情绪中,去消遣一个闲暇无事的下午。

(林语堂 《生活的艺术》)


New

3. Reflecting on the ideas of time

Globalization VS Cultural Integration

We are working for life, not living for work.

Slow down our pace,

cherish the time with

our family, and

our friends.
