How to Write a Summary for Narration --读写任务之记叙文的概括
真题重现(2013 十校联考) Augest6,2012 Sunny Half of my summer vocation has passed. It ’s supposed to be the time for me , a senior-one student,

to relax, read novels, chat with friends and, anyway, not to worry about getting up at 7a.m. for class. Even before the vocation, I had been arranged to attend different “enrichment” classes to improve my main subject. My mum did ask for my opinion whether I would like to go to such classed. But could I refuse? My negative reply would cause a long persuasion, which I would not face. Besides, the teachers made summer homework lists as we were sent off for vocation. The reason sounds persuasive--- to keep us studying during the long break so we wouldn’t forget our lessons. I found that the joy of my summer vocation had been stolen. But do I blame my mum or my teachers? Of course not. Though I don’t like listening to my mum’s lessons about society competition, I still understand that I should do well in study. What bothers me is that I don’t feel like sitting in the classroom focusing my mind on the teachers’ lectures. My mind is staying outdoors, tasting the freedom of the blue sky, the power of sunshine and the comfort of gentle wind? not only scores or certificates.

Text 1

One morning, Mr Hare was running on the road. Suddenly he saw Mr Tortoise, who was also running on the road towards him. Mr Hare ran up to Mr Tortoise and laughed at him. Mr Tortoise got angry and wouldn't take failure lying down, so he suggested having a race to see who could first get to the big tall tree by the roadsides. Mr Hare agreed with him without hesitation. The race began. Mr Hare and Mr tortoise started from the same line at the same time. When Mr Hare was far ahead of Mr Tortoise and even couldn't see Mr Tortoise, he thought that Mr Tortoise fell behind and couldn't catch up with him. So he stopped and lay down to have a nap. But soon he fell asleep. At the same time, Mr Tortoise kept on running and running. When Mr Hare woke up, he found Mr Tortoise had already sat under the tree and was smiling at him! [写作内容] 1)以大约 30 个词概括短文的要点; 2)以大约 120 个词写一篇记叙文,描写你或你的朋友因骄傲而落后的一次经 历,并包含以下内容: a)谈谈这则故事给人们的启示; b)叙述你或你的朋友因骄傲而落后的一次真实或虚构的经历; c)谈谈这次经历对你或你的朋友思想态度的影响。 Text 2 Last weekend, when I was taking the elevator in my apartment building, a man with a large dog came in. The dog seemed very fierce and kept barking at me. What is more serious is that it was not bound to any rope. The big dog licked my shoes and I was really frightened. However, the owner was not regretful at all and he even didn’t say sorry to me. I was really angry about the uncivilized behaviour. While it is true that people have right to keep pets, they still have to consider other people’s feelings. For example, when they walk the dog outside, they, at least, have to bind the dog to a rope and keep it under control. As I know, in some western countries, it is illegal to walk the dog without a rope to bind it . I think measures should be taken to prevent this kind of uncivilized things happening again.

Text1 The folktale mainly tells us that in a race Mr Hare proudly thought he would be sure to beat Mr Tortoise and so he lay down to have a nap. As a result, he lost the race.
Text 2 Having suffered the fright of a big dog from a stranger, who behaved extremely impolitely, the author strongly argued for the prevention of this bad-mannered behaviour.
