As D's attitudes toward high school

"When we talk about our high school life what we like to focus on" is a interesting discussion among students in As D class. Since most of students in  As D will go to America of college, thus students' attitudes toward high school may differ from that of As A.

Specifically,  students are  more  concern about environments; such as environments of self-study, teaching and  Xiasha district.

 

According to Luke's words, the nearby construction creates noises during the day which certainly affect our self-study class. Moreover, the dust pollution makes the air around the school become muddier. Frank adds that because of the construction, basketball courts were destructed last year so that students in international campus must play basketball in the main campus's court.

 

Students in AS are always complaining about lunch time; Especially a quick meeting was added into our schedule in this semester which put all five classes in the morning together without a long break. As a result, students have to run for food; If students arrive at the cafeteria late, they may have no meal to eat.

 

From my perspective, there are plenty of things that school is able to improve, not only of students' study environment, but also of students' life. 

People should listen more classical music than pop music.

The development of modern music induce the prosperity of music industry, for the sake of serving the demand of new music from people. Music became easier to compose due to the advanced technology, whereas it also became less worthy in some zealots' mind. 

 

This essay aims to analysis the trend of popular music, information about music industry and elements of a good music in professionals' mind. 

 

Those top songs on the billboard have one thing in common: easy-remembered  lyrics and melodies, and  those songs are truly easy to become earworms. And I want to explain the earworm effect and  how it relates to our insipid music.

THESIS: People should listen more classical music than pop music.

 

1st paragraph: 

        1. Why clasical music is better for humans----eg. The Mozart effect; A term that has been applied to the controversial conclusions from various research groups thatlistening to Mozart’s music may make a person more intelligent. The effect, if real, has been attributed to short-termimprovement in performing mental tasks that require spatial-temporal reasoning.(From Segen's Medical Dictionary) http://www.howtolearn.com/products/mozart-effect/ 

 

        2. one example of pop music is metal, and it brings negative effects on teenagers.  http://medicalxpress.com/news/2011-10-heavy-metal-music-negative-impacts.html  http://www.ehow.com/list_6568180_negative-effects-heavy-metal-music.html  

 

2nd paragraph

         1.Pop music reduce people's creativity and appreciation. http://www.agorajournal.org/x9352.html --the "music" so quickly and cheaply produced in today’s popular culture is merely an orgy of meaningless tunes lacking in originality and content. https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20120926/08252920518/so-what-can-music-industry-do-now.shtml  

         2. Earworm effect 

         http://www.gold.ac.uk/music-mind-brain/earworm-project/

             symphony is too complicated for people to play in there head completely, whereas pop music usually has a main melody and easy-remembered lyrics which are more likely to cause earworm effect.

How will the world look like in 20-100 years?
