[54]다음을 주제로 하여 자신의 생각을 600700자로 글을 쓰시오문제를 그대로 옮겨 쓰지 마십시오.(50)
일을   과정을 중시하는 사람이 있는가 하면 일의 성공 여부만을 따질  과정 자체의 의미는 가볍게 여기는 사람이 있다이러한 가치관의 차이는 개인과 사회에 적지 않은 영향을 미친다아래의 내용을 중심으로 ‘결과를 중시하는 가치관의 문제점 대한 자신의 생각을 쓰라.
1. 일의 과정보다 결과를 중시하는 이유는 무엇인가?
2. 일의 결과만을 중시하면 어떤 문제가 생기겠는가?
3. 이러한 문제를 줄일  있는 방법은 무엇인가?

When doing things, there are people who value the process, and others only consider whether the matter is successful or not, and despite the meaning of the process itself. Such differences in values ​​have a lot of influence on individuals and society. Focus on the following content and write your own opinions on the "problems of values that emphasize results".
1. Why is the result more important than the work process?
2. What problems would arise if we focus only on the results of work?
3. How can you reduce these problems?

Writing mindset
The title of this session is actually not new, but it mentions values, individuals, and social content. These tips must be considered when writing. The three areas that need to be written are also very clear. It is important to understand when reviewing the question that this is not an essay question on the two-sidedness (excellence and shortcomings) of a thing. The subject has already defined such values as having problems and needs to be addressed. So you only need to explain the problem point.

(Introduction) reasons for the formation of values that value results → (this theory) problems of this value → (conclusion) solution

Grading
1) Whether the content is related to the topic, whether it is rich and diverse
2) Whether the composition of the article is logical and organized
3) Whether vocabulary and grammar are used appropriately and diversely

Sample writing
경쟁 사회가 도래하면서 과거와는 달리 일의 과정보다는 결과만을 강조하는 풍조가 곳곳에서 생겨나고 있다이는 비단 기업뿐만 아니라 교육예술  다양한 분야에 존재한다이러한 현상은 경쟁만이 강조되는 사회적 분위기와 무관하지 않다경쟁을 부추기는 사회가 되면서 사람들이 과정에 집중하기보다는 결과만을 중시하여 타인과의 소통이나 협력은 소홀히 하고 오로지 경쟁에서 이기는 것에만 관심이 집중되어 있는 것이다.

With the advent of a competitive society, unlike the past, the trend of emphasizing results rather than processes breeds everywhere. This is not only found in enterprises, but also in various fields such as education and art. This phenomenon is not unrelated to the social atmosphere that only emphasizes competition. As society becomes more advocating competition, people pay more attention to results than they do, and they ignore communication and cooperation with others and are only interested in winning in competition.

이러한 이유로 사회는 점점 삭막해지고 일을 하는 과정을 통해 얻을  있는 보람이나 의의가 사라져 일에 대한 의욕이 떨어질 뿐만 아니라 쉽게 흥미를 잃게 되는 결과를 초래하게 되었다앞으로 이러한 현상이 계속된다면 사회 속에서 상대를 경쟁자로만 인식하게 되어 좋은 결과를 내기 위해 수단과 방법을 가리지 않게 되고 심지어는 불법적인 일조차 서슴치 않는 일이 계속해서 발생할  있다.

For this reason, society becomes inhuman, and the value and meaning gained through the process of doing things will disappear, and people will not only lose their desire to do things but also easily lose interest in things. If this phenomenon continues in the future, society will identify each other as competitors. In order to obtain good results, there will be no means and methods, and even illegal things will not hesitate to do so, and such things will continue occurring.

그렇기 때문에 우리 모두가 이러한 문제의 심각성을 자각하고 결과보다는 일의 과정 속에서 동기와 목적을 얻고 상대를 경쟁자로 여기는 것이 아니라 소통과 협력을 통해 결과를 만들어   일에 대한 진정한 의미와 보람을 갖게  것이다점점 빠르게 변화하는 사회 속에서 과도한 경쟁에서 벗어나 천천히 여유를 가지고 스스로를 돌아볼  과정과 결과가 조화를 이루는 사회를 만들어   있을 것이다.

Therefore, we all need to be aware of the seriousness of this problem. We must obtain motivation and purpose from the process of doing things. Instead of treating each other as competitors, we must get results through communication and cooperation. In a society that is gradually changing rapidly, getting rid of excessive competition, slowly finding your own calmness, and then returning to self-review, we will find that we can build a society in which both processes and outcomes are harmonious.

[Writing Tips]
* It is very important to seriously review the question and also pay attention when writing:
1. In the big essay, you shouldn’t copy the content of the question. Therefore, you should introduce or propose it in a different way when writing. Don't copy the subject content in the original form.
2. The topic asks for the issue of a certain phenomenon (values). Therefore, it is necessary to introduce this phenomenon at the beginning, and then explain the reason, instead of explaining the reason at the beginning. The final test is actually the expression and thinking power.
3. When you explain the problem, you can extend it from the individual to the society, and carry out the progressive explanation. When you propose the solution, you can start from these two aspects.
