 PARAGRAPH WRITING:

1. Disadvantages of being a working mother.

Mothers should be strongly discouraged from working outside the home. First, women have traditional roles as housewives and housekeepers. They should stay home, doing housework and looking after their husbands and children. In extended families where more than two generations live together, women are also the main care­givers for elderly people. Secondly, working mothers do not have enough time. Men’s work finish at the office, but women’s work is extended to their households. After an eight-hour working day, these exhausted women have to do household chores, take care of their husbands and children without having time to relax. Finally, working mothers can not be good workers. Tiring and boring chores at home negatively affect women’s tasks in their working place. They can not concentrate or work effectively as those who do not have to worry about taking kids to school, picking them up after school and doing housework. Clearly, mothers should not be encouraged to work outside the home.

2. Typical characteristics of Vietnamese people.

A typical Vietnamese person is hard-working, skillful, and devoted to the family. The most prominent characteristic of most Vietnamese is that they work really hard. In fact, in addition to the eight working hours at a job, they still spend time on different household chores. Moreover, Vietnamese people are also well-known for many skills. Both men and women can cook tasty meals and decorate the house. A visit to the family in Viet Nam will be a good chance to experience how good they are at all these tasks. Finally, Vietnamese are really devoted to the family. Their biggest concerns are always about family matters like jobs, hobbies, and health of all family members. That is why the majority of Vietnamese people immediately rush home after work to be with their children and take care of them and the other people in the family. In short, these characteristics are typical of the majority of Vietnamese people.

Not only does Linda Greenlaw do one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, but she also does it extremely well. She has been described as “one of the best captains on the entire East coast” and that, in one of the leading countries in fishing industry, is praise indeed.

Linda was born and brought up on Isle au Haut, a tiny island ten kilometers off the coast of Maine, USA. She fell in love with fishing as a child, and she worked on fishing boats during her summer break from college.

Her first opportunity to go on a deep-sea fishing trip came when she was nineteen. Alden Leeman, a man she’d never met before hired her for thirty days on his sword fishing boat. The trip was a success and eventually Alden offered Linda her first boat to captain in 1986, which probably made her the only woman ever to captain a sword fishing boat.

So, why did she take up sword fishing in the first place? Linda says that not only does she like the way she feels on a boat, but she also gets passionate about catching a fish. More than anything she’s proud of being a fisherman, even more so than she is of being a best-selling author.

Linda has published four books to date, the first of which, The Hungry Ocean, was top of the New York bestseller list for three months. In it, Linda tells the story of one fishing trip and narrates the adventures she experienced on board with her five- man crew, including bad weather, sickness, mechanical problems and, of course, the fish.

But the world of fish and fishing is a man’s world and it’s not easy to find a word to describe Linda Greenlaw. In her own words, she says: “I am a woman. I am a fisherman not “a fisherwoman”, “fisherlady” or “fishergirl”.

Choose the best answer for each question:

Question 1: Linda is………….

A. American B. British C. Canadian D. Hungarian

Question 2: Linda took up sword fishing because ………….

A. she fell in love with a fisherman. B. she loves boats and catching fish.

C. all her family are fishermen. D. she needed to earn some money.

Question 3: Linda prefers to be described as a………….

A. a fisherlady B. a fisherman C. a fisherwoman D. a fishergirl

Answer the questions:

Question 4.How old was she when her first opportunity to go on a deep-sea fishing trip came?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Question 5. How many people were there on the fishing trip in The Hungry Ocean?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Unfortunately, at the current time, 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 15-49 have reported experiencing physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner within a 12-month period and 49 countries currently have no laws protecting women from domestic violence. Progress is occurring regarding harmful practices such as child marriage and FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), which has declined by 30% in the past decade, but there is still much work to be done to complete eliminate such practices.

Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large. Implementing new legal frameworks regarding female equality in the workplace and the eradication of harmful practices targeted at women is crucial to ending the gender-based discrimination prevalent in many countries around the world.

Finding Innovative Applications of Technology

  While technology, in and of itself, does not always spur innovation in the classroom, there are countless innovative ways to use technology to better teach and engage students. Here are some examples:

  Robots in the Classroom – South Korean schools have experimented with robot teachers. This makes lessons more interesting and entertaining for kids and enables teachers from anywhere in the world to be “present” in the classroom.

  Mobile Technology – Smartphones and other mobile devices are increasingly used in education. Mobile apps let teachers conduct digital polls, enhance verbal and presentation skills, and incorporate technological skills with core competency lessons.

  3D Learning – Kids enjoy 3D games and movies, so why not use this technology to help them learn? GEMS Modern Academy in Dubai does just this, providing students with a 3D lab that offers interactive multimedia presentations.

  Assisting Special Needs Students – Assistive technology is especially useful for students with learning disabilities. For example, phonetic spelling software helps dyslexic students and others with reading problems to convert words to the correct spelling.

During the nineteenth century, women in the United States organized and participated in a large number of reform movements, including movements to reorganize the prison system,ban

the sale of alcohol, and, most importantly, to free the slaves. Some women saw similarities in the social status of women and slaves. Women like Elizabeth Cady, Stanton and Lucy Stone were feminists and abolitionists who supported the rights of both women and blacks. A number of male abolitionists, including William Lloyd Garrison and Wendell Philips, also supported the rights of women to speak and participate equally with men in anti-slavery activities. Probably more than any other movement, abolitionism offered women a previously denied entry into politics. They became involved primarily in order to better their living conditions and the conditions of others.

When the Civil War ended in 1865, the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution adopted in 1868 and 1870 granted citizenship and suffrage to blacks but not to women. Discouraged but resolved, feminists influenced more and more women to demand the right to vote. In 1869 the Wyoming Territory had yielded to demands by feminists, but eastern states resisted more stubbornly than before. A women’s suffrage bill had been presented to every Congress since 1878, but it continually failed to pass until 1920, when the Nineteenth Amendment granted women the rights to vote.

Question 14: What is the main idea of the passage ?

A. Abolitionists B. The Wyoming Territory

C. Women’s suffrage D. The Foundation and 15th Amendments

Question 15: The word “ban” in paragraph 1 refers to _______.

A. publish B. prohibit C. promote D. encourage

Question 16: According to the passage, why did women became involved primarily in politics?

A. To support Elizabeth Cady Stanton for president.

B. To be selected to public office.

C. To amend the Declaration of Independence.

D. To improve the conditions of life that existed at the time.

Question 17: The word “ it ” in paragraph 2 refers to _______

A. bill B. congress

Mobile technology can help students open the door to new horizons, making their learning flexible, motivating and speedy. It is not difficult to understand why more and more schools are encouraging mobile learning in the classroom. Smartphones, tablet computers, e-readers, netbooks and laptops, etc. are gradually becoming great learning tools for students.

Mobile devices make learning flexible. School computer labs with desktops are wonderful but they are not handy. Students cannot use them in the school yard during the break time or in the school canteen while they wait for lunch. Mobile learning devices are different. They are light, portable and convenient. Students can carry these devices with them wherever they want and whenever they like.

Mobile learning is motivating. Students are more excited and inspired to study when they work with different types of apps. These apps not only help them understand the materials better but also motivate them to study harder both in and out of the classroom. Motivation and inspiration can lead to good results, and good results can lead to more motivation and inspiration.

Mobile learning makes education speedy. Without having to leave the school building, students can instantly get information or materials necessary for their study. This can be done easily thanks to mobile devices with Wi-Fi. The Internet brings the whole world into the classroom and it takes students just a few seconds to access this wonderful world of knowledge and information.

Mobile technology is already here.
