Due Attention Should Be Given to Spelling（北京新东方学校 李艳华）
They say “mind breeds physiognomy”, which implies the importance of one’s appearance. Similarly, a correct and neat spelling of a composition can not only reflect a success of the composition but embodie the decent disposition of the writer as well . Unfortunately , a great number of students pay little attention to their spelling though their composition turns out quite good either in content or in logic, thus leaving the teacher in a dilemma whether to give a high score or not.
Tracing the reasons hidden behind, we can easily find it is mainly because some students are unaware of the importance of the spelling. In their minds, the content absolutely outweighs the form so the attention to spelling can be pleasantly spared. Objectively speaking, in the examination, the limited time and urgent situation make students have no more effort to care about their spelling and the fact is that they have to write as quickly as possible to finish it on time, leaving some characters vague or incorrect.
Just as is said above, spelling, in a sense , mirrors the content, so a direct result of the bad spelling is the low academic score in the exam for it is hard to expect a text full of undistinguishable words to receive a good appreciation. Further, once the habit of lax spelling was formed, in a long run the quality of being negligence could also be gradually shaped, which would undoubtedly exert negative impact for our future work and life.

Almost every child, on the first day he sets foot in the school building, is smarter, more (36)curious, less afraid of what he doesn’t know, better at finding and (37)figuring things out, more confident, resourceful, persistent, and (38)independent than he will ever be again in his schooling--or, unless he is very (39)unusual and very lucky, for the rest of his life. Already, by paying close attention to and (40)interacting with the world and people around him, and without any school-type (41)formal instruction, he has done a task far more difficult, complicated and (42)abstract than anything he will be asked to do in school or than any of his teachers has done for years. He has solved the (43)mystery of language. He has discovered it. Babies don’t even know that language exists-- (44) and he has found out how it works and learned to use it appropriately. He has done it by exploring, by experimenting, by developing his own model of the grammar of language, (45) by trying it out and seeing whether it works by gradually changing it and refining it until it does work. And while he has been doing this, he has been learning other things as well, (46) including many of the concepts that the schools think only they can teach him, and many that are more complicated than the ones they do try to teach him.
