毕圣洁:8月SAT北美考场回顾——附考试点评及参考文章

  ▼下面上考情

  加试

  这次考试中,选择不考作文的同学碰到了加试。加试时长20分钟,从阅读、语法、数学的三种题型中选择一种,其中,大部分同学遇到的数学部分,都是允许使用计算器的。加试不算分

  阅读

  阅读整体难度一般,但行号题有变少趋势,比如第一篇除了询证和词汇题之外其他细节题几乎全是靠关键字定位,其他部分的细节题即使有行号,也问的比较细,需要不断对比找出答案。这次8月阅读部分对大家的阅读能力和把握关键位置的能力有更高要求。这也很可能是接下来新SAT阅读的趋势,在接下来的复习中,大家要注意训练定位能力。

  历史双篇依旧是相对难度较高的一篇,一直建议阅读能力不是特别强,或者不是要追求特别高分的把双篇放在最后做;科学三篇难度从易到难排列,重点句还是那些经典位置,但是整体还是问得细,题目和选项文字长,与近期真题难度接近。

  文章顺序为:文学作品-历史文献(对比文章)-自然科学-社会科学-自然科学

  ▼下面依次来看

  01文学作品

  文章来源:Paul Laurence Dunbar的“The Sport of the Gods”

  内容简介:

  写Kitty觉得Martin对大家非常严厉,她觉得十分愤怒和不公平,但还是会服从他的instructions。在她唱歌的过程中十分紧张,唱到一半的时候Martin笑了,她就觉得自己唱得肯定非常差,后来她的朋友告诉她其实她唱得很不错。Martin的笑也是对她的肯定。

  文章节选:

  "Now, now," he would shout,"the left foot on that beat. Bah, bah, stop! You walk like a lot of tinsoldiers. Are your joints rusty? Do you want oil? Look here, Taylor, if I didn't know you, I 'd take you for a truck. Pick up your feet, open your mouths,and move, move, move! Oh!" and he would drop his head in despair."And to think that I've got to do something with these things in twoweeks--two weeks!" Then he would turn to them again with a suddenreaccession of eagerness." Now, at it again, at it again! Hold that note,hold it! Now whirl, and on the left foot. Stop that music, stop it! MissCoster, you'll learn that step in about a thousand years, and I 've got ninehundred and ninety-nine years and fifty weeks less time than that to spare.Come here and try that step with me. Don't be afraid to move. Step like achicken on a hot griddle!" And some blushing girl would come forward andgo through the step alone before all the rest.

  【点评】

  小说分为人物心理历程和多人物互动型文章,该文应属于人物互动型,主要把握人物性格特点、人物互动语言描写、动作描写,用时间和空间转移进行分区理解

  02历史文献(对比文章)

  文章来源:Who Should be Allowed to Vote?

  Passage 1作者:James Kent

  Passage 2作者:David Buel

  内容简介:

  两篇文章都是关于Constitution的一个要求:只有拥有财产的男性才能够获得选举权。Passage 1的观点表示赞同,主题句出现在全文首句:The tendency of uninversal suffrage, is to jeopardize the rights ofporperty, and the principles of liberty. Passage 2则表示了反对的观点,主题句出现在第二段首句:I contend, that by the ture principle of our government, porperty,as such, is not the basis of representation.

  【点评】

  女权主义又一次回归,还是老话题参政运动,只要攻克长难句,其实历史文献并不难读,只需要掌握每一派别人们的基本观点,并在阅读过程中着重把握即可

  【参考文章】

  OG1-3的历史文献

  03自然科学

  文章来源:Memory in Plants

  文章作者:P.H.

  内容简介:

  植物是否具备记忆力?研究者观察含羞草为例子,测试从高处丢下来,观察叶子是否会收拢。实验结果表明含羞草能够通过记忆学会不收了叶子作为防御措施。文章还描述了两种不同的实验,以表明不同的含羞草叶子打开的程度不一样,另外在遇到其他威胁的时候,含羞草还是有相应的反应的。

  文章节选:

  More than a century ago Bengali polymathSir Jagadish Chandra Bose posited that plants could feel, learn and remember,and more recent studies have confirmed they can store and recall biologicaldata. But research by Monica Gagliano of the University of Western Australia(UWA)and three fellow scientists goes much further. This study, published in Oecologia,offers proof that plants not only learn from experience, but remember what theyhave learned over relatively long periods.

  【点评】

  从目前SAT阅读考试来看,科学类文章基本可以分为实验体、科普体和假说体。而实验体和假说体基本上每次必考。实验体结构简单,只需要学生做好读书笔记,把实验对象、实验步骤、实验目的等9个阶段标出来,辅之以逻辑和细节就能做对题。

  OG2P5

  04社会科学

  文章来源:Why so cynical

  文章作者:Detief Fetchenhauer and David Dunning

  内容简介:

  研究人与人之间的信任,安排了两组人做实验。一方选择另外一方作为自己信任的人,把自己手上的前交给对方。被选择信任的人得到交给他的钱后,可以选择将钱变多,分一半给选择自己的人或者自己独吞。实验表明,被选择的人往往会感激选择自己的人,把钱分一半给对方。但是选择的人往往不相信自己选的人会给自己钱。(人与人之间的信任是如何崩塌的)

  文章节选:

  They under estimate how often othersrespond generously to requests for help (Flynn& Lake, 2008) andoverestimate how much others’ attitudes and actions aredriven by selfishconcerns (Miller, 1999). To be sure, there is contrary evidence showing thatpeople can be roughly realistic in anticipating the altruism of others(Balcetis & Dunning, 2008; Balcetis, Dunning, &Miller, 2008; Epley& Dunning, 2000, 2006), but an increasing body ofevidence suggests thatwhen people are contemplating whether they should relyon the kindness ofstrangers, they suspect those strangers will prove more selfish than actuallyis the case.

  【点评】

  这次的这篇社科文成为了考试的难点,抽象的概念加逻辑严密,题目偏重细节,选项迷惑性大,需要不断回看,都使得学生们很容易就蒙了。读文章过程中要注意逻辑和细节的笔记,做题要多回看,不然很容易错题。

  05自然科学

  文章来源:The deadly dynamics of landsilde

  文章作者:Sigma Xi

  内容简介:

  讲述的是一块会滑动的石头,石头为什么会滑动呢?文章内给出了两个解释:一个解释是说空气使得这块石头滑动了,但是后面又否定了。第二个解释是说因为是水,并且认为这个解释的可能性更大。

  文章节选:

  Approximately 17,000 years ago, a volume ofrock equal to a cube about a half-mile on a sideroared out of a steep canyon inthe San Bernardino Mountains in southern California. It originated 1,500 feetabove the canyon bottom. Rocks in theslide, already fractured at the start ofthe event, shattered on impact withthe canyon bottom, forming intricatethree-dimensional jigsaw puzzles. Whenthis event, known as the Blackhawk slide,exited from the canyon, it ran outacross a nearly flat valley floor for five miles.Amazingly, the pieces of the jigsaw puzzles stayed together as the slide zoomedalong at nearly 75 miles an hour.

  【点评】

  假说体也是考察考生分类信息、提取信息、把握逻辑的一类文体,学生们不仅要把每一个假说分清楚,还要把我假说之间的相互关系。

  【参考文章】

  OG5P5

  语法

  这次考试难度偏容易,基础语法点考察的题目偏多,而涉及文章阅读部分的考察题目较少,主要把语法的基础点都掌握好,拿到高分甚至满分不是难事。

  数学

  数学题目也偏容易,大家只要做到细心即可。目前反映“题目中有个别不确定”的同学,基本都是碰到了生词。

  写作

  作文部分的阅读难度不高,相对好写。

  文章题目:Can't find skilled workers? Start an apprentice program

  原文链接:http://www.ncpa.org/sub/dpd/index.php?Article_ID=24016

  文章内容:

  01

  One key element to a competitive workforce almost entirely overlooked inthe U.S. is apprenticeships. These days, American businesses typically wantsomeone else—trade schools, community colleges, universities or even thefederal government—to train their future employees. If potential future jobseekers haven't been provided with the training they need, many businessesexpect job seekers to take all the responsibility on themselves, often takingon serious debt without any guarantee of future employment.

  02

  Worse, in the face of greatercompetition, many American employers are slashing training budgets and runningemployment software that rejects every applicant who doesn't already have theperfect combination of training and experience to perform the job on day one.Then employers lament that job applicants don't already know how to do the jobsthat they want them to do. So shortsighted is this attitude that someconstruction companies that don't support apprenticeship programs complain thatcompanies that do have such programs aren't training enough new workers. Yes,you read that right.

  03

  This sense of entitlement contrastssharply with attitudes in some of the world's most competitive countries, wherebusinesses are highly involved in preparing future workers throughapprenticeships. In Switzerland, 70% of young people age 15-19 apprentice inhundreds of occupations, including baking, banking, health care, retail tradeand clerical careers. In Germany, 65% of youth are in apprenticeships; inAustria 55%. All three countries have youth unemployment rates less than halfof America's 16%.

  04

  Last year, Greece, Italy, Latvia,Portugal, the Slovak Republic and Spain all asked Germany to help them set upsimilar systems. In 1997, Britain introduced a program called ModernApprenticeships, based on the German model, and enrollment has increased everyyear. It now stands at 858,900. In 2012, the U.K. added apprenticeship programsfor commercial pilots, lawyers, engineers and accountants that are consideredthe equivalent of a college education.

  05

  The U.S. is headed in the oppositedirection. The number of apprenticeship programs has fallen by one-third in thelast decade. With only 330,578 registered apprentices in 2013, the U.S. hadless than 40% of the number in Britain, a country one-fifth as populous.
