Paying for good (P2)
江苏省常州市北郊高级中学 林晨钰

I. Lead-in

What do you think of Mr Shen’s actions?

II. Free talk
How can we encourage people to return lost property they find to its owner?

Let’s look at a new regulation announced in Guangzhou!

III. Reading
Q1: What is the new regulation?
People who hand in lost belongings will get 10 percent of the item’s value as a reward from public security authorities and the owners are encouraged to give the finder certain fees.

Q2: How has the public reacted to the new regulation?
People have different views and there have been heated debates about the regulation.

People’s opinions:
People who are against it:
It could take away the nobility of the act and degrade people’s moral character.
Zhang Xusheng: Good deeds should be done out of selflessness.

Wang Yidi: There is no conflict between nobility and reward.

People who welcome it:
It could encourage more people to do the right thing and benefit both finders and owners.

Reading strategy
To scan for people’s opinions, we should pay attention to words such as:
say, think, believe, applaud, welcome,     against, for, however, also...

Why are Japan and Germany mentioned in the text?
To show that similar practices have been adopted around the world to reward those who return lost items to their owners.

IV. Discussion
How can we make our statement more persuasive?
•List facts
•Give examples
•Arouse empathy
•Provide specific data
•Quote from reliable sources

V. Further thinking
Do you think it’s OK to ask for a reward for returning lost items? Why or why not?
Pros (for)                                     
•Those who do not pocket lost property and try to return it to the owner should be rewarded.
•The finder has made an effort to protect the lost things, sometimes at the cost of his or her own time and money. The finder’s honesty and effort deserve a reward.
•Giving a reward encourages more people to help others.

Cons (against)
•It is widely believed that returning lost things to their owner is a traditional virtue.
•Honesty is a traditional virtue that we should carry on.
•It could make people indifferent and cold. It should be every citizen’s duty to return lost things to their owners.
•People could come to expect an unreasonable reward.

VI. Writing
1. A clear structure: topic sentence & supporting details
•List facts
•Give examples
•Arouse empathy
•Provide specific data
•Quote from reliable sources

2. Sentence patterns
•Participle phrases (非谓语)
•Inversion (倒装)
•Emphasis (强调)
•Noun clauses (名词性从句)
•Attributive clause (定语从句)
•Adverbial clauses (状语从句)
•With + O. + O.C. with独立主格结构

Possible version
In my opinion, the finder shouldn’t ask for money for his or her good deed. Honesty is a traditional virtue that we should carry on. Grateful words from the owner are far more valuable than financial rewards because they can bring lasting happiness. However, the government and local community should provide an appropriate reward, which could save the finder’s embarrassment and encourage good deeds. In this sense, I am in favor of Guangzhou’s new regulation to reward those who return lost property.
