Eksamensøving i samfunnsfaglig engelsk
Dette er en øvelsesoppgave til eksamen, som svarer på forskjellige oppgaver laget av faglærer i samfunnsfaglig engelsk, og som simulerer et eksamenssett.
Første oppgave går ut på å gjøre rede for virkemidler som er brukt i artikkelen: "British Voters Must Have the Final Say on Brexit" av Tim Farron.
Oppgave to går ut på å skrive et kort sammendrag av boka "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" av Stephen Chbosky, og forklare hvorfor denne boka gjorde inntrykk.
Den siste oppgaven handler om skolesystemet i USA og Norge, som blir sammenlignet med andre.
Some people may say that education is the main key for a successful life. It gives you the opportunity to study something you are interested in, and it opens to multiple job possibilities. One finds universities in almost every country; however, universities are not free. Students are often forced to take up big loans to get their dream degree. The result of this is that in some places in the world, people cannot afford getting an education, and therefore they become dropouts. Norway and USA are both countries that offer different kinds of degrees, but their education system are built up differently. Which of these two countries give students the best education?
During high school in America, students have the chance to apply for scholarships. Some scholarships support academic skills, sport skills, charity and voluntary work, and kids with parents in the military (internationalstudentguidetotheusa.com). These scholarships give great opportunities for students, but few, if any of the scholarships given can cover all the university expenses.
Furthermore, Universities are not cheap. Some of them can cost as much as $400,000 for four years (unesco.org). That is 10 times the average income during a year for an adult in Norway! In other words, the parents and the student must save up a lot of money for him or her to attend a college or a university. Saving up this much money is not possible for everyone. Poor students might have to rely on good grades or good sports skills to get the chance to attend a college or a university. Should the family's income decide whether the student can get a university degree or not?
1.3 million High school students do not graduate on time yearly (edweek.org), and research proves that teacher quality is one of the most significant factors related to student achievement (Kopkowski, Cynthia). Is it the teacher's job to make sure every student is up to date on the syllabus, and is it the teacher's fault if the student does not graduate from High school? The school offers a special need class that is designed for students who are struggling with reading and math (unesco.org). This class has a teacher who is specialized on kids with special needs, and will therefore make sure they understand the syllabus, and get the help they need. Most of these kids are from poor families, and do in many cases, not get help with schoolwork at home (own experience during my exchange year). Study shows that a student living in poverty is 13 times less likely to graduate on time (Sparks, Sarah D). Maybe the American school system should focus on finding a solution that can help poor students through school.
For the students who can afford universities, they do not really have to choose their major until the beginning of the third year of school (studyusa.com). Before the student choose the major, he must take a certain number of courses in the specific field he wants to major in (studyusa.com). This may help the student get a peek into what he is getting a major in, and it can help the student see if this is something he likes or not. It can switch...
