Discussion Text Pros and Cons of Computers for Students

By admin Categories : Discussion text


Belajar bahasa Inggris text Kali ini kita belajar lagi teks ber-genre discussion text tentang pros and
cons of computer for students pro dan kontra komputer bagi siswa. Masih ingat apa itu teks
discussion? Bagaimana teks berjenis argumentative ini berbeda dengan analytical
exposition dan contoh hortatory text? Sekali lagi cara termudah membedakan jenis teks adalah
dengan melihat generic structure nya.
Apa itu generic structure? Dan bagaimana struktur ini membedakan antara jenis teks yang satu
dengan yang lain? Bagaiamana stuktur ini membedakan contoh discussion text dengan contoh teks
genre yang lain? Secara sederhana, generic structure adalah cara penulis menyusun paragraf per
paragraf menjadi satu kesatuan yang utuh terhadap penyampaian pemaknahan tulisannya.

Perbedaan penulis menyusun generic structure sangat dipengarui oleh tujuan atau fungsi dari teks
tersebut. Misal teks berjenis narrative yang bertujuan untuk menghibur dan mengajarkan tentang nilai,
tentu berbeda cara penuyusunan teks tersebut dengan tulisan berjenis discussion yang bertujuan
membuka wawasan pembaca terhadap sebuah issue atau phenomena.

Untuk membedakan teks discussion dengan jenis lainnya, kita perlu mengetahui kesepakatan umum
tentang generic structure seperti pada artikel sebelumnya what is discussion text?. Namun untuk me-
review lagi, text jenis ini selalu akan tersusun dari paragraf-paragraf sebagai berikut:
Paragraf pertama akan terdiri dari: Penyampaian masalah ( presenting issue)
Paragraf selanjutnya berisi: Menujukkan alasan yang mendukung (showing arguments for)
Paragraf selanjutnya memberikan keseimbangan dengan: Menyampaikan alansan yang
menolak (giving arguments against)
Paragraf penutup berupa: Pemberian saran dari penulis (recommendation)

Jadi kalau sebuah essay nampak disusun seperti pengaturan diatas, dengan mudah bisa kita katakan
itu adalah sebuah contoh discussion text. Untuk lebih jelasnya, lihat essay sederhana berikut!

Pro and con of Computers for Students
Do you know that most schools and colleges strongly recommend students to have computers to help
them achieve better results of learning. With computer connected to Internet, students can learn
English online. They can make reports easily by using word processing software. They can play
game to get of boredom. However, a computer can also give negative impacts for a student.
One thing that makes a computer useful is that students can use it to finish some assignments from
schools. By connecting to Internet, they can easily surf and find any materials related to their lessons
and assignments. They have unlimited resources from all over the worlds. Online libraries are open. A
lot of book are free to download and read online. Finding friends from related field of study is not
difficult anymore. They can work together to boost their best achievement. What more benefit is they
can do all of that just by sitting on the a chair of their rooms. What amazing world it is, isnt?
Although a computer has many benefits, it should be considered deeply. A computer certainly does
not promote students to do and move more. A computes make students have less physical activities.
Even not few of them forget to have lunch while they are playing certain game. They just sit in front of
monitors. They are caught up in the mystique of the smart machines. In short, students who usually
work with computers tend to have a few physical activities and exercises.
So what should students do? Should they avoid using computers? Of course No. Computer will
make even greater benefits if physical activities are also promoted to done by the students.

Many young children love to use the Internet and to play computer games. Are
these activities good for children or are they harmful? Discuss this issue in 4
paragraphs.

Should Children be Allowed to Use Computers and the Internet?

The computer is a useful machine and nowadays it is important to many people.


Children especially love to use the computer and they are spending more and
more time on it. They get many benefits from the computer but it can also be
dangerous for them.

On one hand, children learn a lot of things from computers and the Internet. They
learn about people in different countries, they play games that help them learn
to read and write and they get information for school projects. They can read
stories on the computer and save information. The Internet connects them to
other people. When a child is bored he can go on the computer. Computers make
children smart.

On the other hand, the computer can have a negative effect on children. They
may see bad things, like videos and chat rooms that are meant for older people.
This can cause the children to have bad behaviour and to hate school. It takes up
a lot of free-time and it keeps them from homework and they no longer want to
pray and read the Quran and sit with their families. Also, sitting at the computer
for a long time is harmful to the eyes, making them red and harming the sight.

In conclusion, there are both good and bad things about computers and the
Internet. Parents should take good care when their children are using the
Internet. They should supervise their children to make sure they do not go to bad
web sites. I think it is good if children use it for a short time, so parents should
not let the children sit at the computer for too long. They should teach their
children to use the computer in a good way. I advise people to use computers
well so that they will give us a great country and a great world.

that you should use to study, but you just play the game. They also spend
money to play the game if at home they are not provided with internet
connection. On the game online often appears many sexy model which not
necessary to be seen by them, it can make poisoning students mind. You

your mind from the busy school day, but you must manage your time, and
