Directions: In this section, you will hear a passage three times. When the passage is read for the first time,you should listen carefully for its general idea.

Finally, when the passage is read for the third time, you should check what you have written.

When most people think of the word "education," they think of a pupil as a sort of animate sausage casing. Into this empty casing, the teachers(26) stuff "education."

But genuine education, as Socrates knew more than two thousand years ago, is not (27 )the stuffings of information into a person, but rather eliciting knowledge from him; it is the 28 of what is in the mind.

"The most important part of education," once wrote William Ernest Hocking, the (29) Harvard philosopher, "is this instruction of a man in what he has inside of him. And, as Edith Hamilton has reminded us, Socrates never said, "I know, learn from me." He said, rather, "Look into your own selvers and find the (30) of truth that God has put into every heart, and that only you can kindle (点燃) to a( 31)."

In a dialogue, Socrates takes an ignorant slave boy, without a day of (32), and proves to the amazed observers that the boy really "knows" geometry--because the principles of geometry are already in his mind, waiting to be called out.

So many of the discussions and (33) about the content of education are useless and inconclusive because they(34) what should "go into" the student rather than with what should be taken out, and how this can best be done.

The college student who once said to me, after a lecture, "I spend so much time studying that I dont have a chance to learn anything," was clearly expressing his ( 35 ) with the sausage-casing view of education.
