Washington Square

Book Introduction When a handsome young man begins to court Catherine Sloper, she feels she is very lucky. She is quiet, gentle girl, but neither beautiful nor clever; no one had ever admired her before, or come to the front parlour of her home in Washington Square to whisper soft words of love to her. One day… Book summary In New York in the 1840s young ladies are not free to marry where they please. Catherine must have her father’s permission, and Dr. Sloper is a rich but grim man. He knows Morris’ trickery, so he does not want Catherine to marry him. Finally, Catherine’s father is right and she understands that Morris marries her is for money. Issue to be discussed 1. Whose thoughts are these? Who are they thinking about and when? Then find words in the story which mean the opposite of the words in italic. 2. Do you agree (A) or disagree (D) with these statements? Explain why. (1) Dr. Sloper: “You are good for nothing unless you are clever.” (2) Mrs. Penniman: “My dear Austin, you are making a great mistake if you think that Catherine is a weak women.” (3) Mrs. Almond (about Morris Townsend): “He will make Catherine a bad husband.” (4) Catherine (about her father): “And I think he despises me …Of course it isn’t my fault, but neither is it his fault.” (5) Morris Townsend (to Catherine): “Yes, you are rich, you are free. Marriage had nothing to offer you.” 3. Do you think that Washington Square is a good title for this story? Would you prefer one of these titles instead? Why? ...

未來

『未來就是因為不知道什麼模樣,所以才充滿希望。』 有一個故事是這樣的。 阿三、阿德和阿樂,正在砌一堵牆。有一個走過的路人問他們說:「你們在做什麼啊?」阿三沒好氣的說:「我們正在砌一面牆。」阿德說:「我們正在建一幢房子。」阿樂笑得很燦爛說:「我們正在建造一座城市。」 過了幾年以後,阿三的工作仍是造房子的工人,他現在正在砌一面牆。而阿德呢?他現在坐在辦公室裡,畫著建築設計圖。阿樂,則變成他們倆的老闆。 許多的真實經驗告訴我們,孩子不能輸在起跑點上,於是,從小的時候開始,就必須學習許多的才藝和功課。我們深怕孩子被我們忽略了他某一個部分的才能,被我們埋沒他某一項多元智慧的發展。我們總是希望孩子好還要更好。因此,不辭辛苦也不厭其煩的給孩子許多的功課。一遍又一遍,要求再要求,進步再進步。 有一個老師曾說一個故事,媽媽回到家看到小華在看電視,就跟小華說,快去寫功課啊!小華很聽話,進去房間完成回家功課,他滿心歡喜的做完功課之後,回到客廳,想要看他最喜歡的哆拉A夢。媽媽看見小華就跟他說,功課寫完啦!那就複習一下今天老師教的。小華有點不甘願的回到房間,將今天老師教的國語、數學複習一遍,複習完了,又很開心的回到客廳,坐在舒服的沙發上看電視。這時,媽媽看見小華,又跟小華說,複習完啦!那就做做預習啊!明天的課表拿出來!小華從這樣的事件中,學習到的是〝事情做完了,千萬不要讓媽媽看到,否則永遠有做不完的事情!〞 孩子未來的城市,需要我們在他還小的時候替他選擇一塊又一塊的磚,幫助他建造人生的第一面牆。等他長大一點,我們開始學著陪他選擇要建房子的磚、陪伴他,當砌牆的時候,牆突然倒下來的失敗。鼓勵他、激勵他、給他加油,卻不再替他建房子。 因為,那是屬於他的城市。 教育仿若建造房子一般。 教育者就像造房子的工人。當您替孩子選擇他的未來時,你看見的是一面牆、一幢房子還是一座城市。...
