The requirements for high school
graduation have just changed in my community.
As a result, all students must _____(21)
sixty hours of service learning, ______ (22)
they will not receive a diploma（毕业文凭）.
Service learning is academic learning that also helps the community.
of service learning include cleaning up a polluted river,
working in a soup kitchen, or tutoring（辅导） a student.
a service experience,
students must keep a journal（日志）and then write a
about what they have learned.
Supporters claim(声称) that there are many
of service learning.
Perhaps most importantly, students are forced to think
their own interests and become
of the needs of others.
Students are also able to learn real-life skills that
responsibility, problem-solving, and working as part of a team.
students can explore possible careers
For example, if a student wonders what teaching is like,
he or she can choose to work in an elementary school classroom a few afternoons each month.
there are many benefits, opponents (反对者)
problems with the new requirement.
First, they _____(34)
- deal with
- look into
- point out
- take down
that the main reason why students go to school is to learn core（核心）
subjects and skills.
Because service learning is time-consuming, students spend
time studying the core subjects.
Second, they believe that forcing students to work without
goes against the law.
By requiring service, the school takes away an individual's freedom to choose.
In my view, service learning is a great way to
to the community, learn new skills, and explore different careers.
I don' t believe you should force people to help others the
to help must come from the heart.
I think the best ______(40)
is one that gives students choices:
a student should be able to choose sixty hours of
independent study or sixty hours of service.
Choice encourages both freedom and responsibility,
and as young adults, we must learn to handle both wisely.
