首先，老师建议同学们要提准备好一些电影类话题的常用素材，包括单词短语，以及一些电影的名字（title）、剧情梗概（main plot）、主角（main character）和主题（theme）。
例如，同学们可以先准备好两类不同的电影作为举例的素材（每一类可以准备1-2部电影），一类是根据真实事件改编的电影（movies based on true facts and events），另一类是虚构电影（fictional movies）。
1、Some people prefer to see movies based on true facts and events, rather than completely fictional movies about imaginary people and places. One reason for this preference is that movies based on actual events allow viewers to learn from other people’s real-life experience. Do you agree or disagree with this viewpoint? Why?
2、Many film makers made movies based on books. When a movie is produced based on books, some people prefer to read books before watching films, other people choose to watch movie first. What do you think?
3、Do you agree that in movies and/or TV programs good men should be rewarded and bad men should be punished?
4、Some movies are serious, designed to make the audience think. Other movies are designed primarily to amuse and entertain. Which type of movie do you prefer?
5、Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is better to relax by watching a movie or reading a book than by doing physical exercise.
6、Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Movies are only worth watching when they can teach something in real life.
7、Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People can learn as much by watching movies as they can learn by reading books.
8、Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Movies and TV made in your country are more interesting compared with movies and programs made in another country.
案例 · 分析
同学们在审题时不妨将题目看成是二选一，在“movies based on true facts and events”和“fictional movies about imaginary people and places”之间进行衡量并作出选择。
本道题目如果选择agree，那么就将“movies based on true facts and events”作为论述主体，强调为什么有人更喜欢看此类电影。
Movies inspired by true life stories can drive social change. Movies have the ability to teach audiences about experiences outside their own perspective, inspire empathy, and raise socially, even politically charged questions and issues. For example, The Day After Tomorrow, which was released in 2004, helped increase awareness on climate change. In the movie, the world is about to enter a new Ice Age with a series of weather-related disasters, and the world population begins trying to evacuate to the warmer climates of the south. The main character Jack, a paleoclimatologist who discovers this massive climate shift, makes a daring attempt to rescue his son and his friends who are stuck in New York City. This movie has put a great effort to raise public awareness of global warming as a serious environmental threat. People started to debate critically online and promoted many campaigns for a low-carbon lifestyle. Therefore, It is better to watch movies based on true stores.
