  例子是文章必不可少的内容,更可以说是整个文章的核心,没有例子的文章是不敢想象的。SAT作文例子的应用需要细节化,这一点通过SAT写作的评分标准有所体现。要注意,空洞的论述远不及有说服力的例子,把注意力集中到举出例子和写好例子上是事关重要的。  很多中国考生对这个问题并不是很理解,美国人怎么能用一个个人例子就来论证全文呢,毕竟这在中国同学看来是不可思议的。环球教育建议考生搜集一些自己很感兴趣的人或者是事件的相关资料,比如你对苏格拉底很感兴趣就去维基百科上阅读相关资料,然后动手去把这个人的简单传记写出来,越详细越好。
  SAT写作经典例子之征服者威廉
  William the Conqueror 1027 -- 1087 King of England; born c. 1027, in Falaise, Normandy, France. He was an illegitimate child of Robert I, Duke of Normandy, who died in 1035 while returning from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. At only eight years of age, William became the new Duke of Normandy. Violence and corruption plagued his early reign, as the feudal barons fought for control of his fragile dukedom. A few of William’s guards died and his teacher was murdered during a period of severe anarchy. With the help of King Henry I of France, William managed to survive the early years.
  The king knighted William, still in his teens, in 1042. Taking a new stand on political events, William finally gained firm control of his duchy (although his enemies commonly referred to him as “the Bastard?due to his illegitimate birth). By 1064, he had conquered and won two neighboring provinces-Brittany and Maine. In the meantime, the childless King of England-Edward the Confessor, whose mother was a sister of William’s grandfather-promised William succession to the English throne. However, when Edward died in 1066, his brother-in-law and most powerful of the English lords, Harold Goodwin, claimed the throne of England for himself (despite an oath he made to William to support his claim). The Witan, a council of English lords that commonly took part in deciding succession, supported Harold. William, angered by the betrayal, decided to invade England and enforce his claim.
  William assembled a fleet and an army on the French coast, but due to unrelenting north winds, their advance was delayed for several weeks. In the meantime, the Norwegian army invaded England from the North Sea. Harold, who had been preparing for William’s invasion from the south, rapidly moved his army north to defend England from Norway. After defeating the Norwegians, Harold unwisely marched his troops back down to meet William, without a rest. On October 14, 1066, the two armies met in the famous Battle of Hastings. King Harold and his two brothers were killed in the battle, and since no one of stature remained to raise a new army, William’s path to the throne was clear. He was crowned King of England on Christmas Day.
  There were several revolts in the next five years, which William used as an excuse to confiscate English land and declare it his personal property. He then distributed the land to his Norman followers, who imposed their unique feudal system. Eventually, Normans replaced the entire Anglo-Saxon aristocracy. William, however, retained most of England’s institutions and was intensely interested in learning about his new property. He ordered a detailed consensus to be made of the population and property of England-which was compiled in The Domesday Book (now an invaluable source of historical information and still in the Public Record Office in London).
  William died in 1087 in Rouen, France. He had four sons and five daughters, and every monarch of England since has been his direct descendent. Although he never spoke English and was illiterate, he had more influence on the evolution of the English language then anyone before or since-adding a slew of French and Latin words to the English dictionary. The introduction of skilled Norman administrators may be largely responsible for eventually making England the most powerful government in Europe.
  SAT写作经典例子之莫扎特
  Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart(27 January 1756 - 5 December 1791), was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. He composed over 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, piano, operatic, and choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers.
  Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood in Salzburg. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty; at 17 he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position, always composing abundantly. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of Mozart's death. The circumstances of his early death have been much mythologized. He was survived by his wife Constanze and two sons.(天才儿童,重视天赋,培养,个人兴趣)
  Mozart learned voraciously from others, and developed a brilliance and maturity of style that encompassed the light and graceful along with the dark and passionate. His influence on subsequent Western art music is profound. Beethoven wrote his own early compositions in the shadow of Mozart, of whom Joseph Haydn wrote that "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years." (对后人的影响)
  SAT写作经典例子之物理学家欧拉
  Mathematician, born in Basel, Switzerland. He studied mathematics there under Jean Bernoulli, and became professor of physics (1731) and then of mathematics (1733) at the St Petersburg Academy of Sciences. In 1738 he lost the sight of one eye. In 1741 he moved to Berlin as director of mathematics and physics in the Berlin Academy, but returned to St Petersburg in 1766, soon afterwards losing the sight of his other eye.
  He was a giant figure in 18th-c mathematics, publishing over 800 different books and papers, on every aspect of pure and applied mathematics, physics and astronomy. His Introductio in analysin infinitorum (1748) and later treatises on differential and integral calculus and algebra remained standard textbooks for a century and his notations, such as e and ? have been used ever since.
  For the princess of Anhalt-Dessau he wrote Lettres ¨¤ une princesse d'Allemagne (1768--72), giving a clear non-technical outline of the main physical theories of the time. He had a prodigious memory, which enabled him to continue mathematical work and to compute complex calculations in his head when he was totally blind. He is without equal in the use of algorithms to solve problems.
  中国同学的文章中总是充斥着大量的名人名言,大段的排比等等很炫的一些手段,可以凸显自己信手拈来的一股豪气。但是这些东西到了美国人这边就纯粹是扯淡了,没有实际意义的东西。他们更看重真的东西,比如同学们老师们对你的看法,具体的场景,具体的语言动作等等。所以,考生们一定要将例子或素材具体化,可以针对性的区看一些名人的传记而不是去盲目记忆,评分老师更看重你作文的深度。以上就是环球教育SAT为考生总结的写作例子。
