do you agree or disagree with the following statement? teachers should not make their political or social views known to students in the classroom

How many words? How long?

One Possible Solution: (Nothing is perfect! Please take this as an example only!)

This resource hasn't been reviewed. Therefore, it might need lots of improvements. The reason this happened is we are implementing more features for this website. Therefore, you need to use it with caution.

Teachers play important role in our life. Because, they train our children and teenagers and, of course, our children imitate the attitudes and behaviours of their teachers. Even though, some people may didgree that teachers should not make their social and political views in the classroom, I strongly agree with idea presented in the question. Because, mentioning as such issues in the classroom will probably distract the students and take the valuable and precious time of class.

First, I strongly believe that students are overwhelmed by political and social issues if they recieve too much of them. In other words, our students are not still mature enogh to be involved in such kinds of issues and as a result, they can be easily distracted. For example, I remember that in first year of high school, in Tehran, we had a geography teacher, mr. hashemi, that always spoke about various political parties in the class. During the ellection period of presidents, he tended to talk a bout democrat candidates in class. In reality, he advertised that political party and student carefully listened to him. One of my friend completely absorbed in ellection and lost his focus. He under the influence of our teacher stated advertising democrat party in the school and nabourhood, day and night. Consequently, he could not study his lesson suitably and could not pass the finals. This example taught me that stating political views is no at all a great idea.

another reason is that by stating as such views, the teachers in fact kill the valuable time of class. This time can be used to teach important tips to students or it can be used to answer the problems of students. For instance, in third year of high school, our math teacher tended to speak about social problems such as bankrupcies, burgulars, murders, rapists and so many other moral issues. I can asset that we always lost almost 30 minutes precious time of class. consequently, he always stared teaching late, and if we did not understand any thing, we were not be able to ask question, because there was no time and as a result he easilly ignored our questions.

in sum, even though stating political and social views in class may have some benefits, I strongly disagree with this idea, because it is really distractive and waste the valuable time of class. I strongly recomend that teachers should take care while stating as such issues beacuase it may have severe consequences.

1) Introduction is a must. You don't believe you could get a good grade without introduction, do you?

2) Body: 3 paragraphs are also necessary. Three is a magical number. It can do wonders to your overall band score.

3) Conclusion. You do not want to infuse your examiner with a feeling of incompleteness.

This is how your essay is graded

There are 4 components: Task Response, Coherence and Cohesion, Lexical Resource, Grammatical Range and Accuracy.

Task Response means to what extend your essay covers the topic. For example, if the topic is "The advantages and disadvantages of globalization", you would have to write about both aspects not just only advantages or just only disadvantages.

Coherence and Cohesion means how well your paragraphs and sentences are connected. If your first paragraph is about advantages of globalisation, you should start your second paragraph with phrases such as "Despite the advantages, there are many disadvantages we should be aware of". Otherwise, your essay is just a list of items which are not related to each other.

Lexical Resource means vocabulary and different types of sentences, simple and complex. You should be able to demonstrate your capability in using English.

Grammatical Range and Accuracy means spelling and grammar of sentences. You should be able to spell the words correctly, do not forget articles “a” and “the”, punctuations is also important.

One more important thing to know: the four criteria are equally weighted. It means that if you forgot about “Coherence and Cohesion” in your essay, you will loose 1/4 of your essay points.
