本次六级考试写作题目依旧为抽象题目，考察类型为论述型文章。三卷的话题分别是“Why should students develop communication skills?”、“Why should students develop creativity?”、“Why should students take challenges?”。以上主题均与学生的个人成长有关，并在已经预设“should”的前提下要求考生列举理由。因此，考生须注意切勿落入“正反讨论”的习惯模式中，而应当按题目要求为正方观点提供理由。
Why student should be encouraged to develop creativity
The pace of change in the world is accelerating rapidly and it will continue to change with the development of new technologies. This means that the way we live and work in the past might no longer be appropriate in the coming future. In order to succeed, a powerful way to empower ourselves is to develop creativity.
First, being creative helps us become a better problem solver in all areas of our life and work. When trying to find the solution to a problem, thinking creatively allows us to look at the situation from different angles, which opens up the possibilities. Second, being creative helps us better deal with uncertainty. In a constantly changing world, nobody can fully predict what the future holds. New challenges pop up every day, and the old ways of doing things are probably useless. Being creative is how we get unique ideas and how innovators set themselves apart. Third, being creative helps us develop confidence. Being creative comes with many ups and downs and a high risk of failure. Engaging in the creative process is a great confidence builder, because you discover that failure is part of the process.
In conclusion, creativity is no longer just seen as what artists and musicians possess. It’s a crucial skill for professionals in all fields. It is high time that we took actions to develop creativity. Only in this way can we be successful in this constantly changing world.
上文首段开头即使用了常见模板The pace of change in the world is accelerating rapidly and it will continue to change with …. 该句概括描述了当今社会“快速变化”的现实背景，亦为展开讨论的大前提。其后，This means that … in the past might no longer be appropriate in the coming future.表明“社会变化”影响，亦即展开讨论的小前提。最后引出观点句，即In order to succeed, a powerful way to empower ourselves is to … 在此文章中，模板中的powerful way即为creativity。
主体段整体结构较为简洁和清晰，以first, second和third分别引出三个理由，且理由间呈并列逻辑关系。理由一中，When trying to find the solution to a problem, …使用了时间状语从句与伴随状语相结合的复杂结构，提升了句式难度，同时省略不确定的主语，适当简化表达；… thinking creatively allows us to look at the situation from different angles, which opens up the possibilities.使用了非限定性定语从句，避免了前后两个简单句的尴尬。理由二中，… nobody can fully predict what the future holds.使用了宾语从句，且the future holds sth.是加分表达，意为 “未来蕴藏着某物”。理由三中，Being creative comes with many ups and downs and a high risk of failure.使用come with表达“前者的发生导致后者”的含义，可用以替换常见的因果连词。
结尾段中，… creativity is no longer just seen as what artists and musicians possess.一句使用了被动语态与宾语从句，意为“创造性不再被看作是艺术家和音乐家的特质”。结尾It is high time that …意为“该是时候做某事”，此亦为表“倡议、呼吁”含义的通用结尾模板。
