Background Information (1)
  • What is love?

Background Information (2)
  • Love is a temporary madness.
  • It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides.
  • And when it subsides you have to make a decision.
  • You have to work out whether your roots have
    become so entwined together that it is
    inconceivable that you should ever part.
  • Because this is what love is.
  • Love is not breathlessness,
  • it is not excitement,
  • it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal
  • That is just being "in love" which any of us can
    convince ourselves we are.

Background Information (3)
  • First love is only a little foolishness and a lot
    of curiosity.
  • Falling in love consists merely in uncorking the
    imagination and bottling the common-sense.
  • Falling in love is awfully simple, but falling
    out of love is simply awful.
  • Bitterness imprisons life love releases it.
  • Bitterness paralyzes life love empowers it.
  • Bitterness sours life love sweetens it.
  • Bitterness sickens life love heals it.
  • Bitterness blinds life love anoints its eyes.

Background Information (4)
  • Ebbets Field Brooklyn Dodgers 1913-57.
  • Cramped but colorful Ebbets Field, in the
    Flatbush section of Brooklyn, was home to the
    Dodgers in their lean times and glory years,
    until the franchise was transplanted to Los
    Angeles. Built by Dodger owner Charlie Ebbets for
    the 1913 season, the widely anticipated park
    opened without a press box, and no one brought
    the key to the bleachers for the first game.

Background Information (5)
  • Originally the double-decked grandstand stood
    only along the foul lines, leaving the left field
    corner 419' distant, and center 477'.
  • The grandstand was extended to left and center in
    the 1930s, however, making the park a hitter's
    paradise. The left-field power alley was 351' and
    center became a very comfortable 388', made even
    shorter by the upper deck, which hung over the
    playing field. The right field wall was a sight
    in itself.

Background Information (6)
  • A patchwork collection of local advertisements, a
    scoreboard, and a large black screen that was in
    play, it was 38' high and abutted Bedford Avenue.
    The screen made up the top 19', sending balls
    rebounding at unpredictable angles, while the
    wall itself was concave, angled in the middle.
    The large black scoreboard featured the famous
    Abe Stark "Hit sign, win suit" advertisement on
    the bottom, and a Schaefer beer ad on top which
    gave the official scorer's ruling on hits and
    errors by lighting up the appropriate letter (h
    or e).

Background Information (7)
  • Renowned for its laughable Dodgers in the 1920s
    and 1930s, Ebbets Field was also known for its
    vocal and boisterous fans. Hilda Chester would
    attend each game with her clanging cowbell, while
    the Dodgers Sym-Phony, a collection of musically
    inclined fans, played other instruments. In the
    1940s, the Reds' Lonny Frey hit an
    inside-the-park home run when his drive to right
    hit the screen and fell straight down, coming to
    rest on top of the lower half of the wall, 19'
    above the field.

Background Information (8)
  • And on October 3, 1947 Cookie Lavagetto broke up
    Bill Bevens's World Series no-hit bid with two
    out in the ninth.
  • By 1957, however, Ebbets Field had grown too old
    to satisfy Dodger owner Walter O'Malley, and in
    1958 Brooklyn's beloved Dodgers were in Los
    Angeles. Only 6,673 fans attended the final game,
    and the park was demolished in 1960. The Jackie
    Robinson apartment complex now stands on the
    site. (SCL)

Text Analysis (1)
  • Summary of the Text
  • This essay tells about a story of a father and a
    son. The son was reluctant to be seen walking
    with his crippled father , for he was ashamed of
    the unwanted attention from other people. The
    father, however, didn't care much about how
    others behaved towards them. Nor did he complain
    about his life. Instead, he kept on working and
    tried to participate in as many activities as he
    could. Not until the son grew up and lost his
    father forever, did he realize how positive and
    courageous his father was and how sorry he felt
    toward his father and how

Text Analysis (2)
  • unworthy he used to be. Finally, he came to know
    about the fact that it was his father who set the
    pace in his life and taught him the importance of
    having a good heart.

Text Analysis (3)
  • The author presents the story with a general
    point and then continues to support his general
    point with examples. This is one of the commonest
    way of presenting ones ideas or points of view.

Text Analysis (4)
  • In paragraph 11, the author tells us that
    although the father was crippled, he still
    managed to participate in some activities through
    his son. Then the author went on to support this
    general point with three examples. The first
    example is when the son played ball, the father
    played too. The second example is that the son
    joined the navy and the father joined too,
    though the author did not tell us how that his
    father joined the navy. The third example is
    that when the son went home

Text Analysis (5)
  • on leave from the navy, the father would make him
    visit his office. And in this way the father was
    telling others that he could do the same as his

Text Analysis (6)
  • Paras. 1-5The son was embarrassed to be seen
    walking with his crippled father, but the father
    subjected himself to the shame and stress without
    bitterness and complaint.
  • Paras. 6-7 The son now realizes that his father
    treated others with a good heart.
  • Paras. 8-11 The fathers attempt to experience
    things directly and indirectly.

    the son feels regret for his reluctance and
    relies much more on his father for his balance of

    writer starts with a general point and then
    presents a number of examples to support his
    point. Look at one of the paragraphs.

Development by Examples (2)
  • I now know he participated in some things through
    me, his only son. (a general point) When I played
    ball, he played too. (example 1) When I joined
    the Navy, he joined too. (example 2 )And when I
    came home on leave, he saw to it that I visited
    his office. Introducing me, he was really saying,
    This is my son, but it is also me, and I could
    have done this, too, if things had been
    different. Those words were never said
    aloud.(example 3)

Development by Examples (3)
  • Supporting a topic sentence with examples or
    illustrations makes a general statement specific
    and easy to understand. An illustration is a
    case, a specimen, an instance. Vivid
    illustrations light up abstract ideas and make
    them clear, interesting, memorable, or
  • Illustrations may be a single example or a series
    of examples.

Development by Examples (4)
  • This term several useful and interesting courses
    have been offered. An Introduction to European
    Culture, for instance, gives us a lot of
    background knowledge of the history of European
    philosophy, literature, and arts. From time to
    time we see slide shows of famous paintings and
    hear tapes of famous pieces of music, and they
    make the lectures all the more interesting.
    American Society and Culture is another course
    that attracts a large audience. The teacher, who
    visited the United States not long ago, discusses
    new trends and

Development by Examples (5)

    history and traditions. We like these and other
    courses very much, because they help us not only
    to improve our English but also to broaden our

Development by Examples (6)
  • Knowledge often results only after persistent
    investigation. Albert Einstein, after a lengthy
    examination of the characteristics of matter and
    energy, formulated his famous Theory of
    Relativity, which now acts as a basis for further
    research in nuclear physics. Using plaster casts
    of footprints, fingerprints, and stray strands of
    hair, a detective pertinaciously pursues the
    criminals. After years of work Annie Jump Cannon
    perfected the classification of the spectra of
    some 350,000 stars. Investigations into the
    causes of polio have

Development by Examples (7)
  • provided us with the means for prevention and
    cure of this dreaded disease only after many
    years of research. As students, we too are
    determined in our investigation to find, retain,
    and contribute to the store of human knowledge.
  • ------ Earl Rudolph

Development by Examples (8)
  • Try to write your own paragraph, which starts
    with a general point that has been listed below.
  • Science and technology change our life greatly.

Development by Examples (9)
  • Sample
  • Nowadays, people can reach each other at anytime
    at any place only with a mobile phone at hand.
    And you need not wait for several days for your
    letter to reach to your friends. What you need to
    do is to type the letter on the computer, tap the
    key and within one minute your friend receives
    it. With the advancement of media and
    communication technology, people are able to know
    what is happening at a place far from their home
    and the world is really becoming a global village.
