  尽管跟新SAT两年来的共处,爱恨情仇不谈了,咱们也算是比较了解其品性的熟人了。虽然CB有偶然运用旧题的缺点,但像这次这般彻里彻外地运用亚洲区的考试旧题,仍是跌破了许多的人的眼睛,圈内许多人都在传这次1600分会大面积迸发。不过本文只做回想,不做批判。


8月25日SAT北美考试回忆


  此次8月北美SAT考试,除了写作为新题之外,美国东部考区,运用了2017年10月亚太的试卷;美国西部考区,则彻底重复了2017年3月北美试卷。本会将做东部考区的试卷的回想,内容较长。预祝咱们冲击1600分!

  SAT写作部分

  标题偏简略,一切的剖析办法都比较常规,整体文章偏简略。

  标题: Are Urban Trees Worth It?

  作者: Scott Steen

  来历: Guardian News,September 30,2014

  这次选用的论题又是考生遍及了解的环保论题,从文章难度来说,文章简略易懂,几乎没有生词;从写作思路来说, 与2016年11月那篇同为环保论题的“Bad for birds, bad for all” 以及2018年3月北美考题 “Our Failing Weatherinfrastructure”论说办法类似;从剖析要素来说,数字、比方、比照以及emotive language很丰厚,信任许多同学都能感到顺心应手。

  1 Some people don’t love trees as much as they used to. After the severe storms we have had this year, including Hurricane Sandy, city trees can seem like a dangerous liability. Are urban trees worth the risk they pose to houses, cars and people when a violent storm comes through?

  2 Urban environments are tough on trees. Street trees are often boxed in without enough room for healthy roots or they don’t have a sufficient water supply to sustain them. Branches on street trees can be broken by buses or trucks that travel or park too close, or they can be damaged by overly aggressive pruning. The damage often goes unreported, and the trees weaken. High winds can bring those branches — or the trunk itself — down on cars, houses or power lines.

  文章用广大读者了解的Hurricane Sandy作为引子,用一个rhetorical question来引起读者考虑;紧接着,作者引出了市政当局的过错做法。

  3 But there is another side to it, too. Trees are green infrastructure. Unlike gray infrastructure — concrete and metal sewers, pipes, bridges, sidewalks — trees are an investment that increases in value throughout their lifetime, which can last a lot longer than concrete.

  这一段通知咱们市政当局对树的出资是有回报的。

  4In Baltimore, Md., it’s estimated that a single tree provides $57,000 in economic and environmental benefits over its lifetime. In a single year, Baltimore’s canopy provides

  $3.3 million in energy savings.

  5Portland, Ore., is planting 83,000 trees as part of its five-year, $55 million Grey to Green program, to help solve its sewage and stormwater run-off problems.

  6In Austin, Texas, it’s estimated that the city’s trees have the potential to store up to 100,000 tons of CO2 per year.

  7The state of Indiana’s street trees provide approximately $79 million annually in environmental and economic benefits. In the capital, Indianapolis, this equals $6.6 million in benefits just from street trees alone.

  第4-7段引用了许多比方和数字,阐明晰美国全境,许多州都很注重绿植,各州都有很多出资。

  8The list of other benefits trees in cities provide is long — from removing CO2 from the air, cleaning water and providing habitat for wildlife. But in urban environments, the benefits to people individually and society as a whole extend to social, physical and economic well-being.

  9People are happier and healthier in cities with more trees. Greener urban areas are connected to healthier and more social interactions between adults and children, as well as lower levels of graffiti, property crimes and violent crimes. According to one major study, public housing buildings surrounded by trees had 52 percent fewer total crimes, 48 percent fewer property crimes and 56 percent fewer violent crimes than buildings with few trees. Tall, dense trees with soft ground surfaces can reduce city noise by 50 percent or more.

  10Cities trees have also been shown to have significant health benefits. Research on more than 3,000 inner-city children in the United States showed that those who could easily reach a greenspace had less stress and a lower body mass. Among children living in neighborhoods with street trees, there is a lower prevalence of early childhood asthma.

  第8-10段在说绿植带来的benefits, 这儿再次引用了很多的facts和数据。

  11But just as our urban trees are working for us, we need to work for them. As trees in urban forests get larger and provide greater benefits, like any infrastructure, they also get older and may require greater care to keep both them and us safe. Cities must provide adequate funding, crews and staff to keep our trees healthy. But in terms of the services they provide to the city, they are one of the few infrastructure investments that also grows in value.

  第11段 用but一词,标志着logical turning point, 呼吁城市市政要注重绿植的价值,添加拨款,雇佣专业人员。

  12Eighty percent of the U.S. population lives in urban areas. Over the next 50 years, the population in cities is projected to increase substantially. Urban forests will become even more critical to ensure healthy and livable communities.

  更多的理由,企图压服市政当局要加大出资。

  13With extreme weather occurring with greater frequency, city governments must start investing in urban forests now to mitigate problems in the future. This investment includes long-term, consistent maintenance plans; funding to support jobs for maintenance crews and specialists to monitor and care for trees; and strong ordinances and codes to ensure that planners and developers incorporate trees and greenspace. If we care for our cities’ trees, they will give back to us tenfold. It’s an important investment in our future. Are they worth the risk? Well, we can’t live without them.

  呼吁市政当局要加大绿植出资,并供给了一些solution, 用rhetorical question结束,提示咱们忽视这个问题的价值。

  SAT阅览考试部分

  A卷:

  这套卷子的SAT阅览部分整体难度中等偏下,十分友爱,没有难度特别高的华章。

  Passage 1 小说类:

  一位母亲带自己的孩子去接近大自然,去看蝴蝶,后来看到大群的蝴蝶集合,母亲想让孩子自己探究,没想到孩子探究得比较粗犷,但母亲没有责怪之意。

  Passage 2 社科经济类:

  解说布雷顿森林系统,一种金融系统,某位英国人提出,可是由于美国太强,不能为英国谋得太多利益,然后被美国人改改拿去用了。

  Passage 3 自然科学类:

  某种能吸收地底下金矿的植物,从它的树叶确实检测到了较高黄金含量。可是并不能用这种树来挖掘金矿,由于含量太低,重金属对植物有害,所以它不可能吸取太多。可是能够用来确定地下是否有金矿。

  Passage 4 前史类:

  两篇文章各种表达了对林肯废奴的看法。第一篇先批判林肯废奴仅仅为了他们白人自己,可是后来供认林肯的奉献。第二篇,对林肯一向持期待和必定的情绪。

  Passage 5 自然科学类:

  冰块移动引起的地质地貌改变,还讲到了对气候的影响。

  B卷:

  这套卷子的SAT阅览难度适中稍难,呈现了2篇Science文章(其间1篇仍是paired passage),1篇Social Science文章,1篇History文章,还有一篇文学类文章。其间History的文章是Emerson之于政府和个人联系的论说,也可算作Social Science政治类文章。由此可见,Science类型的文章占比进一步加大!

  Passage 1: 文学类文章,小说,难度稍易

  节选的是小说中第一章刚开端的部分,描绘了Briony这个孩子的一些性格特点和喜好。比方十分爱整齐,喜爱藏隐秘,11岁开端写自己第一个故事等。将这个女孩栩栩如生的描写出来。标题多为细节题。

  Passage 2: 社科类Social Science文章,难度适中

  本文叙述了一个概念 - metaphor(隐喻办法),以及它对人心思发生的印象和作用。文章最初举了一个metaphor的比方,说假如没有去过一个城市,而另一个人对这个城市的描绘是脏乱差,这个隐喻办法就会在咱们脑子中根深柢固,即使发现是不准确的,也很难被去除。文章随后用科学试验的比方,持续经过数据去阐明metaphor对人心思发生的影响。比方是描绘一个城市的违法,用两个不同的词汇描绘,一个描绘违法是“像猛兽暴虐城市”,一个是像“病毒散播城市”,然后让受访者挑选解决方案,凶猛型的“添加警力和监狱”和温文型“教育并拔擢经济”,成果彻底不一样。

  Passage 3: 科学Science类,难度稍高

  本文叙述的经过研讨动物骨头标本的一种试验办法,来揣度恐龙的年纪,以及它们体重和年纪的联系。文章给出了不同恐龙种族,如暴龙等,它们年纪和体重的联系图。本篇触及多道图表题。

  Passage 4: 前史政治History类,难度稍高

  文章阐述的是Emerson对政府和个人之见联系的见地,也就是民主主义和本位主义之见的对立。感兴趣的同学能够阅览一下原文。

  Passage 5: 科学Science类,难度适中

  第五篇文章是Paired Passage。两篇文章,都是讲火星的。第一篇讲火星上在亿万年前,科学研讨标明发现有湖泊 (warm little pond) 的存在。文章介绍了这个湖的地点,巨细,而且论说由于这个湖的存在,具备了生命的基本条件,提出了一个理论想象。 而第二篇则提出,火星上有水源而且有较长时刻孵化出史前生命这个传统观念,可能是过错的。研讨标明火星有可能是在极短的时刻内遭遇了地球从未经历的大改变,水源消失,没有足够的时刻是的生命孵化。


  以上给我们分享的是关于SAT考试备考战略的问题,期望能够为我们供给协助,我们在SAT备考中也能够参阅一下这些备考战略,为我们的SAT备考供给更多的主张,预祝我们获得抱负的SAT考试成绩。
