实验范文 Example Writing:
Do movies and television influence the way people behave? Certainly they do, and who will argue otherwise? Here, refuting two common fallacies, our logical claims intend to focus on the assumption that there are more good effects than ill effects on the audience, including children and teenagers, of course.
Fallacy No. 1: Myths about Evils. Largely being fiction about myths for entertainment, most films and television programs are meant to influence people in the positive context. Some are designed to make the audience think; others are designed primarily to amuse; and probably none are designed to encourage evil-doing. Besides the emotional impacts, reducing stress and killing free time, there is something deeper about them that shape our minds and hence change our behaviors. In light of this, our participation in that kind of popular media may help alter the consciousness of society, either for good or ill, depending on the myths portrayed. Accordingly, it is groundless to think that we are always exploited negatively by the entertainment seen on the screen.
Fallacy No. 2 about Rising Crime Rates. Because of cinema's persuasive power, it is easy to blame movies and television (along with other media outlets) for imprudently showing violent scenes against a landscape of rising crime rates. At this point, we should consider, for a moment, that the like of many of those criminal minds had existed long long before cinema was ever invented. This means that the message of cinema today is far from leading the average person, young or old, to commit a crime, and that a good film or TV program usually has a unique ability to influence the popular culture with a "moral" ending (like poetic justice) tinkering around inside our brains that are supposed to be able to distinguish right from wrong. In fact, there are no evidence to prove the direct relationships between crime rates and cinema consumption. Is anybody so naive as to believe that most criminals may enjoy watching television more often or, on the contrary, most innocent people may not go to movies as often? Who is kidding who?
On the whole, it makes sense to think that the impacts of movies and television should be considered as more positive than negative on the audience of all ages, young people in particular. To paraphrase Walt Disney: "Movies can and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood". Therefore, the bottom line is how to incorporate logical behaviors in all our films and TV series. (Essay created by Jeenn Lee Hsieh, email@example.com )

》猫头鹰复习讲义：电视+电影 （参考谢振礼发表的多篇实验解答，包挂原创范文8036 暴力电影，5129 电影风行，5020 严肃电影。）答题的心图：开头三句话：主题 焦点 指标。结尾三句话：指标 焦点 主题。猫头鹰一向实验大胆提出立场，申论主题。这一篇原创‘电影电视’（编号5460）写法一边倒，支持自己的立场：影视的影响，正面远多于负面。反正论说文并没有既定的标准答案，仅仅要求符合答案标准，也就是评分标准。说穿了，托福写作（或雅思写作）的游戏只不过是【英文造句】+【逻辑论证】。
3. 指标--开头第三句【话分两头】：从主题的焦点，刻意地一分为二，引出主体（承+转）两段的指标，作为招牌句‘topic sentence’。两段分别论证。
--自圆其说：结尾三句话：1. 指标 2. 焦点 3. 主题。
