Imagine that you are doing a project on why Zetland teenagers like IT classes. You have found some data on the subject – the results of the opinion polls (see the table below).
Comment on the data in the table and give your opinion on the subject of the project.
The opinion poll question:
Why do you like your IT classes?
Number of respondents (%)
Interest in the subject
Opportunities for creative projects
Academic success (getting good grades)
Write 200-250 words.
Use the following plan:
– make an opening statement on the subject of the project;
– select and report 2–3 facts;
– make 1–2 comparisons where relevant and give your comments;
– outline a problem that can arise with IT classes at school and suggest a way of solving it;
– conclude by giving and explaining your opinion on the importance of IT education for teenagers.
Low grades/ low(-level) academic achievement
To solve the problem, parents should offer extra lessons in the areas which their children find problematic (where they have some study problems) by hiring an IT teacher as a tutor.
To solve the problem, it is advisable that parents should help their children create and stick to a daily study habit in a homework environment as free from distractions as possible.
Not enough practice in class
To solve the problem, schools should have after-school clubs or recommend online resources where schoolchildren can practise on their own.
To solve the problem, schools can ask companies to help them buy newer computers for their classrooms.
An effective solution to this problem involves schools maintaining their old computers on a regular basis. This practice will make school computers work better and last longer.
To solve the problem, schools may consider recycling outdated computers in an environmentally friendly way and using the funds to buy new ones.
