Social media could cause bad feelings (P2)

邯郸市第一中学 许蕾蕾
I. Warming up

 

 

Social media is a form of electronic communication, such as websites for social networking and microblogging, through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages and videos, etc.

Discussion:
How does social media affect our daily lives?

II. Skimming
Read the text quickly and answer the question.
1. What is the main idea of the article?
A study showed that there may be a link between the rise of suicide rates among young US people and social media.

III. Scanning
Read the text carefully and answer the following questions.
1. Why does Jean Twenge believe that the rise in social media use is to blame for the rise of suicide rates among young US people?
Key: It’s thought that social media posts of people showing off their apparently good lives could be having a negative impact on young people.

2. What does Esther Rantzen think could be the reason for the large number of calls Childline received from young people in 2016?
Key: She thinks the reason for this is social media, as virtual reality conveys the impression that everybody is gloriously attractive, wonderfully funny, liked by like-minded people, which can intensify the loneliness and isolation of a child or young person, who is made to feel inadequate because they may not have someone they can turn to and trust.

3. How will young people benefit if they stay away from social media according to Samantha Price?
Key: They will sleep better, concentrate and therefore learn better and feel better.

VI. Language study
Translate the sentences. Pay attention to the sentence structures.
1. It’s thought that social media posts of people showing off their apparently good lives could be having a negative impact on young people.
• It’s thought that “人们认为” ; it 为形式主语,真正的主语为that后的从句。
• apparently 显然地。
• have a negative impact on 意为对...有负面影响
句意为:人们认为,那些在社交媒体里显摆自己过得很好的人的帖子可能会给年轻人带来消极影响。

2. This problem isn’t unique to the US. In the UK, Childline, a round-the-clock telephone helpline, dealt with over 22,000 calls from young people in 2016, reported the Daily Mail. That’s about one every 20 minutes.
• a round-the-clock telephone helpline 为childline的同位语
句意为:这个问题并不是只在美国存在。在英国,儿童热线,一个24小时的热线电话,2016年处理了超过22万通来自年轻人的电话,大约每20分钟一个。

3. The fact is that this can intensify the loneliness and isolation of a child or young person, who is made to feel inadequate because they may not have a single person they can turn to and trust.
• that 引导表语从句
• who 引导非限定定语从句
• because 引导原因状语从句
句意为:事实是这可能会加剧孩子或者年轻人的孤独感,使他们感觉不好,因为他们会觉得没有一个人可以求助或者信任。
