  ACT官方发布了2015-16年度的官方样题。72C取代了去年的67C,成为新一年度的官方样题。

  官方样题的72C原型来自于2014年6月考试用题72C,但是仔细比较后,新的72C在数学、科学、写作方面与老72C有不同程度的改进。数学部分替换了个别题目;科学部分由之前的7篇文章精简为6篇文章,但总题目保持40个不变。

  最大的变化来自于写作。此次发布的新72C写作题目为改革后的“三观点”题目。这也是继官网的“Intelligent Machines”之后,第二个官方发布的写作题目。对于备考ACT写作的同学和研究ACT教学的老师来说,是一个非常珍贵的题目。

  下面就来看一下新72C的写作题目吧。

  Public Health and Individual Freedom

  Most people want to be healthy, and most people want as much freedom as possible to do the things they want. Unfortunately, these two desires sometimes conflict. For example, smoking is prohibited from most public places, which restricts the freedom of some individuals for the sake of the health of others. Likewise, car emissions are regulated in many areas in order to reduce pollution and its health risks to others, which in turn restricts some people’s freedom to drive the vehicles they want. In a society that values both health and freedom, how do we best balance the two? How should we think about conflicts between public health and individual freedom?

  Read and carefully consider these perspectives. Each suggests a particular way of thinking about the conflict between public health and individual freedom.

  Perspective One

  Our society should strive to achieve the greatest good for the greatest number of people. When the freedom of the individual interferes with that principle, freedom must be restricted.

  Perspective Two

  Nothing in society is more valuable than freedom. Perhaps physical health is sometimes improved by restricting freedom, but the cost to the health of our free society is far too great to justify it.

  Perspective Three

  The right to avoid health risks is a freedom, too. When we allow individual behavior to endanger others, we’ve damaged both freedom and health.

  Essay Task

  Write a unified, coherent essay in which you evaluate multiple perspectives on the conflict between public health and individual freedom. In your essay, be sure to:

  analyze and evaluate the perspectives given

  state and develop your own perspective on the issue

  explain the relationship between your perspective and those given

  Your perspective may be in full agreement with any of the others, in partial agreement, or wholly different. Whatever the case, support your ideas with logical reasoning and detailed, persuasive examples.
