托福写作部分一共分为两大任务，task 1考察考生对阅读材料和听力材料的信息整合能力，task2考察考生对某一特定话题的独立观点表达，具体任务特点不同，我们的应对策略也不同。托福写作task 2又被称为托福独立写作，话题涉及的领域多样，生活类是考察频率比较高的类别之一，下面我们来看一篇生活类话题拓展的真题解析：Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Children should only study and play rather than help with household chores.
Responsibility 1: Study
1. Some people hold the opinion that study is a free option, which is a misunderstanding indeed, because everyone has the responsibility to self-cultivate as a member of the society.
2. Children should learn to be a well-behaved person, which is closely related to the future of the society.
Responsibility 2: Family Duty
孩子不仅是社会的一员，更是家庭的一员，要成为一个良好公民的前提是能够胜任家庭成员，做力所能及的家务事是培养孩子责任感的一个有效手段(effective means)，不仅如此，做家务可以训练一些基本技能(basic skills)。
1. Engaging in some household chores is an effective means to cultivate children’s senses of responsibility.
2. By sharing household tasks, everyone gains. Children can help their parents with simple tasks such as picking up their own rooms, putting away their own laundry, starting dinner occasionally, or taking care of younger siblings.
Responsibility 3: Skills
做家务可以训练一些基本技能(basic skills)，比如分类技能(classification skills).
1. Very young children learn motor skills and classification skills when they pick up their toys and put them away.
2. Cleaning and cooking may seem dull, but knowing how to do them well makes life a lot easier
