Unit Six

Section A: When Allie Left Home

Ⅰ. Main idea

     This is a personal-experience story that each student, who will leave his family to the college, and his parents may experience. Especially the period before the child is going to leave, the situation become more tense that it’s like there’s some invisible boundary between the child and parents. Mother feels very upset for not being able to communicate with her child very well and she tries to improve the tense relationship. Actually, it’s not only her problem, and it’s a common one that each family may face. Eventually, they cross the boundary. The solution is just a pamphlet in which some suggestions are proposed special for parents.

Ⅱ. Structure

Part I (para. 1-6): The relationship between the child and her mother became strained before the child leaving for college.

Part IV(para. 7-12): Mother tried to find every way to solve the strained relationship between them, but it doesn’t work..

Part VI (para. 13-14): The problem is solved and they were reconnected again.

Ⅲ. Text Learning

2.Her face, once so open and trusting, is almost hostile now.

Meaning: Her face, which was so honest and frank and trusting in the past, is almost showing a strong dislike now.

4. I would show up occasionally at school, sign her out of class, and take her somewhere —out to lunch, to the movies or sightseeing.

Meaning: I would appear sometimes at school, sign a written request to take her out of class, and go with her to some place —to have lunch, watch movies, or visit some interesting places.

5.Some say the tighter your bond with your child, the greater her need to break away, to establish her own

identity in the world.

Meaning: Some people say the closer your emotions are tied with your child's, the greater her need to escape, to find her existence in the world.
