蓝心雾 发布于:

     为了填补长久以来博客的空白,就拿本学期的几篇paperwork充充数啦!这是一门中文老师授课的高级中文课CHINE599,学习的是美国社会与文化(阅读材料以及video电影是英文的,上课讨论和课后作业中英皆可)。




更喜欢德国海报S.H.I.T.

      普通的美国高中生B不好好学习,毕业的时候被八个大学拒绝,在家长的压力下想出个歪招,居然编造了这么个大学,并找到一个废弃的建筑装裱之后哄骗家长,谁知这个虚拟大学却招来了大量的学生------都是找不到大学上的高中生!本来想退了学生的钱并且道歉,可是一个小神经病角色却在他之前发言:“你们知道吗,当我接到这封录取通知书后,平生第一次听到爸妈说我们以你为骄傲!”这样一句话,立马引起在场所有人的共鸣,也震撼和激发了B;于是,他口风一转,突然华章异彩地说了一番更加激动人心的演讲--

“Shouldn’t we all get a chance to say yes to?……We say yes to you, we say yes to your hopes, we say yes to your dreams, we say yes to your faultsWelcome to South Harmon Institution of Technology! Welcome to S.H.I.T!!!

     看到这里,我也感到身上热血沸腾。This is really a great movie. 有深度,有广度,一连串妙语连珠的电影台词,嬉笑怒骂皆成文章;但又头头是道,蕴含真理,让人信服,一点点地揪着人心。比如开头父亲的训斥:“Society has its rule. First rule is go to collegeIf you want to have a happy and successful life, go to college! If you want to be someone, go to college! If you want to fit in, go to college!” 这段话有点意思,像推销广告一样;也很Chinese, 似曾相识啊。记忆中的中国父母与老师们不也天天念叨着小升初、初升高,再到高考吗?


     再看假校长在电影中和B父母面谈时关于教育的评论,真让人哭笑不得:"大学是青年男女拓展视野,形成世界观的时期,是他们尝试新事物和新思想的时期,并且是他们漫长旅程的开始,从一个无知的少年成为一个肩负责任的成年人--听上去是不是狗屁不通?!哈哈~听着,我们向这些孩子抛出一大堆诱人的字眼,吸引他们来上学,并让他们自以为因此可以获得美好前程,我们都知道自己所做的是培养下一代的买主和卖主,皮条客和妓女,向他们灌输的东西会使他们一生自责,优柔寡断!!!" 他对学生们的演说,粗俗,却不平庸:“What is learning? It’s paying attention. It’s opening yourself to this big ball of shit that we call life! What’s the worst thing that can happen? You get bite in the ass. Well, let me tell you my ass look like a hamburger meat, but I can still sit down!!”如此风格犀利,鞭辟入里的话,怎不让人兴奋,怎不太让人有冲动,去 make a difference?


     假校长说道American education is shit, 难道中国教育就不是?比较一下假校长所言,在中国,learning是什么?education又是什么?在网上看到一段精辟的评论—— Good to quote,but list the source “…com” or according to … 一下子找不到来源了


   “教育是什么?小学的时候告诉我们,我们接受教育是为了成为共产主义的接班人;初中告诉我们是为了成为有用之才;高中告诉我们是为了幸福地活着……MD,越听越clamp了……


     教育,是要让我们成长的。人不会停止发展,不会停止成长,所以,也不会停止接受教育。但教育并不是一定要规规矩矩坐在教室里,听老师讲课,一边打瞌睡,一边记录某些可能一辈子都用不上的奇怪名词。是让自己的灵魂成长、起飞、出航,而不是困死在某个扼杀人性的角落里痛苦挣扎…… ”


      Chinese education is more bullshit!看了这部电影,心里舒畅了不少,敢骂敢恨,假如现在人在中国,估计还骂不出来吧。感觉压抑多年了,甚至现在仍然压抑,只想看课本办事、听师长教诲,人云亦云,糊里糊涂过下去也无所谓。不就是上学吗?上就是了,学就是了。


      可是B说什么——"哈哈,我告诉你,一直以来我们被人传授知识,但是今天我们反行其道,我们要问学生他们要学什么" 这么可以这样?假如这样的学校存在的话,这样的一个梦想存在的话,那我们曾经的学生时代成了什么,不就有点可笑了吗?不知道美国是不是真有这样的学校存在;对,电影或者只是将大学兼容并包、自由开放、激发潜能的精神拿出来夸张了一下而已,天底下,中国的天底下会有哪所学校实践这样的精神呢?就好比我们已经宣传多少年“德、智、体、美、劳”了;可是诚实的中国学生们,别告诉我你就真的“全面发展”了。student-school share governence have K-State students somewhat make the school that way? yes, that’s what student government in KSU for.


     这样一个梦想,似乎曾经离我们那么的近。中学时代,大家都拼命地把头埋到书里,两耳不闻窗外事地过着离群居所的日子,渴望地就是能在大学里过会民主自由、有点思想内容的日子。可是结果呢?虽然我并没有亲身经历中国的大学,可是从周围人口中得知——“日子废在网络里了”“好无聊啊,除了谈恋爱好像没什么有意思的了”“那些铜臭味重的教授实在……”——那些常提在口头、写在书上的口号与宣言,成了从来没有实现在手上的梦想,甚至在中国电影里都没有突破(广电局的压迫)!然后,现实里,大家可爱的校长还有亲切的教育部长当然永远不会这么说,他们只会在开学典礼上或公共场合说一些他们也不完全相信的鬼话而已。vivid description


     再回到影片主题上来—“accepted”,双重含义--被college录取,与被心理上认可。不错,我们看这部电影是为了找出中西文化的不同,可是我发现的是更多的相同之处。教育不应该谋杀学生的创造力与激情,不应该有名牌大学书香门第的刻板印象,而是根据每个人的天分和兴趣,选择适当的方向和内容。在这种时候,我们可以发现,原来美国的孩子也要会面临和我们一样的问题。因为作为人,都需要有认同感。可是同样的教育弊端,中西方究竟做出了怎样的反应呢?至少美国人在质疑,美国人会承认,美国人敢于自嘲。而在中国政治色彩浸染下、传统文化熏陶下的我们,一旦回到现实,便继续妥协;电影里皆大欢喜,我们皆小欢喜。good to see “common” between two cultures

     Accepted, by whom? B在法庭对峙上说的那句好—“I don't give a shit! Who cares about your approval? We don't need your approval to tell us that what we did was real. And it's too bad that you judge us by the way we look and not by who we are”不错,认同,仅来自他人是没有用的,连自己都不认同,还需要什么书面证明的录取通知呢?self-acceptance,self-recognition,self-love → study with self to yourself

 

     因为喜欢,便摘录了B在法庭上的经典台词,实为经典——  good to learn some classic expressions → hese are very American language.Trt to use them .


Well, what about you parents?

Did... Did the system really work out for you?

Did it teach you to follow your heart, or to just play it safe, roll over?

What about you guys?

Did you always want to be school administrators?

Dr. Alexander, was that your dream?

Or maybe no, maybe you wanted to be a poet.

Maybe you wanted to be a magician or an artist.

Maybe you just wanted to travel the world.

Look, l... l... l... I lied to you.

I lied to all of you, and I'm sorry.

Dad, especially to you.

But out of that desperation,

something happened that was so amazing.

Life was full of possibilities.

A-A-And isn't that what you ultimately want for us? As parents, I mean, is... is that, is possibilities.

Well, we came here today to ask for your approval,

and something just occurred to me.

I don't give a shit! Who cares about your approval?

We don't need your approval to tell us that what we did was real

And it's too bad that you judge us by the way we look and not by who we are.
Just because you want us to be more like them when the truth is we're not like them.
Why? Why can't we both exist? Huh?
You can have your grades, and your rules and your structure and your ivory towers,

and then we'll do things in our ways.
Why do we have to conform to what you want?

'Cause there are so few truths in this world that when you see one ,you know it.

And I know that it is a truth that real learning took place at South Harmon.

Whether you like it or not, it did.

'Cause you don't need teachers or classrooms or... or fancy highbrow traditions, or money, to really learn.

You just need people with a desire to better themselves,

and we got that by the shitload at South Harmon.

So you can go ahead,

sign your forms,

reject us and shoot us down, and do whatever you gotta do.

It doesn't really matter at this point

Because we'll never stop learning,

and we'll never stop growing

and we'll never forget the ideals that were instilled in us at our place.

'Cause we are S.H.I.T. Heads now

and we'll be S.H.I.T. Heads forever

and nothing you can say or do or stamp can take that away from us!

So go!

Go ahead!
