In the wilderness, animals are also much harder to track and monitor. Zoos make
research less time-consuming and expensive. Long-term follow-ups are easier too,
since even with monitors, wild animals often are killed or disappear. In zoos, research-
ers can observe an animals entire life span.
Overall, I feel that properly managed zoos provide excellent opportunities for
education and research, and are therefore very useful.
16 In the future, students may have the choice of studying at home by using tech-
nology such as computers or television or of studying at traditional schools.
Which would you prefer? Use reasons and specific details to explain your
choice.
If I had a choice between studying at home using computers and television or
studying in a traditional school setting, Id choose the traditional setting. Maybe its
just what Im used to, but I dont think that technology can replace teachers and class-
rooms.
After all, technology can fail. Computers go down and computer programs crash.
Televisions break, and the electricity can suddenly go off. In those situations, whos
going to teach me? If Im at school, and the television or the computers stop function-
ing, theres a teacher to step in and change the lesson plan. Teachers can draw on their
teaching experience and be creative. Computers and television cant.
Id also miss the chance to interact with other students if I werent going to
school. I think learning to play and work with other people is one of the most important
lessons we learn in school. It prepares us for life, and for working with other people.
Being with other people also helps us discover who we are.
Another concern I have about studying at home is getting distracted. Its strange,
but I think being home alone is more distracting than being at school with a lot of peo-
ple. At school, were all focused on the same subjects. At home, it would be so easy to
turn off the computer or the television and go to do something else. I might tell myself
that its okay to play a computer game now and make up the study hours later. Chances
are, Id never make up the study hours.
Im all in favor of using technology in the classroom. I think computers and tele-
vision are great ways for students to have access to a lot of information. I just dont
think they should be the only tools I have as a student. I also need teachers and other
students to help me get a complete education.

If I had a choice between studying at home using computers and television or
studying in a traditional school setting, I’d choose the traditional setting. Maybe it’s
just what I’m used to, but I don’t think that technology can replace teachers and class-
rooms.

Televisions break, and the electricity can suddenly go off. In those situations, who’s

teaching experience and be creative. Computers and television can’t.
