According to the Oxford English Dictionary,the term “couch potato”  first appeared in print in a December,1979 edition of the Los Angeles  Times.Since then,it has become a familiar term for a person who spends a lot of time sitting,and little time exercising.Although there does not seem to be any particular reason why the term “couch potato” is used rather than “couch tomato”,a person may become a “couch potato”because living this way is said to make you round like a potato.The term is also said to have something to do with the high-calorie (卡路里) food like potato chips.

People now would say “couch potato” whenever they talk about overweight and obesity (肥胖).Indeed,“couch potatoes” are believed to have heart disease risks,which can be avoided by regular exercise.

It is true that technology and modern life in general make us sick,fat,lazy and physically/mentally soft.The more time people spend using technology,particularly televisions and computers,the less time they will spend being physically active.

“Couch potato” kids are a particular concern.Media reports repeatedly claim that children today are fatter than their elder generations,but less athletically skilled,less interested in physical activities and more addicted (上瘾的) to “junk food” and technology such as televisions and computers.The message is clear:today's children are fat because they are lazy and eat too much.Moreover,because technology is becoming more sophisticated (复杂的),children are less able to resist (抵抗,忍得住) technology's attraction,and are more likely to spend more time using technology,less time doing physical activities and,therefore,more likely to be fat.

【语篇解读】 随着科技的发展,当今社会出现了“couch potato”这一新现象。

4.The first paragraph is mainly about ________.

A.why “couch potato” is used as a term for a person

B.when “couch potato” is used as a term for a person

C.how “couch potato” is different from “couch tomato”

D.what kind of person looks like a potato

5.The development of technology also makes us sick because ________ by using technology.

A.we are more likely to have heart disease risks in  modern life

B.we spend less time doing exercise

C.we needn't do many things by ourselves any  more

D.we spend all our time watching TV and playing  computer games

B [细节理解题。从第三段最后一句可知,我们运用高科技的时间越多,锻炼的时间就变得越少。]

6.It's kids' ________ that people are particularly concerned about.

A.food  B.study

C.health  D.hobby

C [细节理解题。根据最后一段第一句“‘Couch potato’kids are a particular concern.”及下文可知,“Couch potato”kids指的是那些肥胖的孩子,而“肥胖”与健康问题有关。]

7.According to the passage,the author may suggest that ________.

A.scientists should stop their technology research

B.parents should take better care of their children

C.kids should be stopped from using new technology

D.people should spend less time using technology

D [推理判断题。从短文中我们可以得知,科技的发展使人们把更多的时间用在了看电视、玩电脑上而大大减少了锻炼的时间,造成了“couch potato”之类的问题,所以作者可能是在建议人们少花点时间在看电视、玩电脑上,即using technology。]


Kyle Schwartz,a new teacher at Doull Elementary  School in Denver,teaches a third-grade class.Most of  her students come from underprivileged homes,as 92 per cent are entitled (给予权利) to free or reduced school lunches,she said.

“As a new teacher,I tried to understand my students' real lives and how to best support them.I just felt like there was something I didn't know about my students,” she said.To solve this problem,she asked her students to complete the sentence:“I wish my teacher knew...”

While some children used the notes to jokingly complain(抱怨) about homework or to ask for more playtime,Ms Schwartz said some of the answers were “heartbreaking”,as children showed their hard lives.One student told Ms Schwartz that he did not have any pencils at home,while another said that they hadn't seen their father for six years.And another student wrote,“I wish my teacher knew sometimes my homework is not signed (签字) because my mom is not around a lot.”

She posted them to Twitter in March with the hashtag  “I  Wish My Teacher Knew”.Teachers  on Twitter soon noticed how successful Ms Schwartz's trick(策略) was for reaching out to students,and began sharing similar notes they received alongside “I Wish My Teacher Knew.”

Ms Schwartz said that since she encouraged her students to share their secrets,students have been supporting each other more,and she hopes the method will connect students and their families with the proper resources (资源) they need to live comfortably.She added that the results have been surprising,and the student that said she didn't have anyone to play with has since been invited by classmates to join them on the school playground.

Taking notes is very important in high school.If  you don't take notes,you may find it difficult to go  over the lessons.__11__ You need to get some skills in  order to take perfect notes.Here are some tips to help  you.

Try not to overdo it.Some students like writing  down every word.__12__ If you want to write down every word,you may miss the most important points.Some people learn well by listening carefully,writing  down a few key points,and then going over the material after class when they have more time.So just make  sure that you've written down the most important points.

Ask your teacher to repeat something.__13__  If you've missed something or the teacher is going too fast,you can raise your hand and ask your teacher to repeat it.Chances are if you missed something,one of your classmates might have missed too.So there's nothing wrong with asking for something to be repeated.

__14__ Reviewing or recopying your notes when you get home can help you remember what you have learnt during the day.Do the notes you've taken match up with (匹配) your textbook? You can also compare your notes with a friend.This helps you remember the most important points and can help when preparing for a test or an exam.

Review your notes from time to time.If you don't review your notes,you may forget what you have learned.But if you review your notes regularly,you'll remember well what you've learned.This can help you a lot when you have to take a test or an exam.__15__

F.You don't have to stay up late to go over your notes.

12.A [根据“If you want to write down every word,you may   miss the most important points.”可知,作者认为想把每一个字都记下不是什么好主意。]

13.G [根据第三段的“If  you've missed something or the   teacher is going too fast,you can raise your hand and ask   your teacher to repeat it.”可知,有的同学害怕在课堂上打断老师,但如果你遗漏了重要的知识,或者老师讲得太快了,你可以举手让老师重复。]

14.D [根据“Reviewing or recopying your notes when you   get home can help you remember what you have learnt   during the day.”可知,作者建议当天回家后就要复习那些笔记内容。]

15.F [根据“This can help you a lot when you have to take a   test or an exam.”可知,定期复习笔记能帮助考试,你不再需要熬夜看笔记了。]

【语篇解读】 文章介绍了瑞典商人修建的冰屋旅馆的一些细节。

36.Built [考查非谓语动词。句中it指the world's first igloo hotel和动词build是被动关系,指旅馆被建用过去分词表被动,故填Built。]

37.will be [考查时态。根据时间状语In two weeks' time表将来指两周后,所以动词用将来时,故填will be。]

38.replacing [考查动词形式。look forward to中的to是介词后面加动词的­ing形式作宾语,故填replacing。]

39.so [考查副词。句中包含so...that句型表示“如此……以至于”,此处指如此成功以至于他设计了现在的冰屋,故填so。]

40.which [考查关系代词。此处是非限制性定语从句修饰前面的the present one用which引导,故填which。]

41.was removed [考查时态语态。当雪冻结后底座就被移开。本段是过去时且the base和remove是被动关系。故填was removed。]

42.With [考查介词。此处指冰屋没有窗户,with表示“有”,故填With。]

43.than [考查连词。此处指住在冰屋不像是放松的旅馆休息更像是生存测试。more...than“更像是”,故填than。]

44.well [考查固定短语。as well as“也”是固定短语,此处指也是生存训练好的开始。故填well。]

45.popularity [考查名词。此处由The和of限定用名词,指冰屋的受欢迎度超过了对它的怀疑。故填名词popularity。]


假如你是Miss Wang,收到高一新生李华的来信,信中提到他在学习和生活上的一些困惑,请你根据以下李华遇到的困惑写一封建议信:

困惑 建议

1.高中学习科目繁多,学习内容难度较大; 1.制定学习计划:课前、课中、课后;



2.难以融入新的环境; 1.结交新朋友;






Dear Li Hua,

I am sorry you are having trouble in adapting to high school life._________________________________________________________________











Best wishes.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Wang



I_am_sorry_you_are_having_trouble_in_adapting_to_high_school_life.Here are some tips that will help you solve your problems.

First of all,making a proper studying plan such as previewing the courses before class,keeping yourself focused in class,and reviewing after class,which would be helpful to improve your study.Besides,it's a good idea for you to make some new friends so that you can fit in with the new environment quickly.In addition,you'd better take part in after­class activities,which will help you to organize your spare time properly.

I hope you can find these suggestions useful.






There was once a_man went out to look for a job.As he was passing his neighbour's house,an important piece of paper fell out of the man's pocket.

His neighbour happened to be looking out of the window.Seeing the piece of paper fall,he thought,“What a disgrace!That guy deliberately let that fall_out_of his pocket.He's trying to mess up the front of my house,and he's being sneaky about it,too!”

But instead_of going out and saying something,the neighbour planned his revenge.

That night,he took his waste­paper basket and went to the man's house.The first man also happened to be looking out of the window,and saw what happened.Later,when he was picking up the papers dumped on his porch,he found the important piece of paper he had lost.It was torn into dozens of pieces.He thought that his_neighbour had not only picked his pocket,but had had the cheek to mess up his doorway with rubbish.

He didn't want to say_anything.Rather,he started plotting his revenge.That night he phoned a farmer to make an order of ten pigs and a hundred ducks.He asked they be delivered to his neighbour's house.

Of course,the next day,his neighbour had quite a bit of trouble trying to rid himself of so many animals and their accompanying waste.

Sure that this had been a wicked trick pulled by his neighbour,as soon as the second man had_gotten_rid_of the pigs and ducks,he again started planning his revenge.

And so it went on.

They continued trying to get their own back on each_other,and each time their acts of revenge got bigger and more ridiculous.The dropping of that single piece of paper ended up with a rock band,a fire siren,the driving of a lorry into a garden fence,the throwing of a hail of stones at windows,the firing of a canon,and finally the dropping of a bomb which destroyed both men's houses.





Paragraph 1:

Both ended up in a hospital,and had to spend quite some time sharing a room there.________________________________________________________________




Paragraph 2:

Then came the moment for the two to leave the hospital._____________________________________________________________





Paragraph 1:

Both ended up in a hospital,and had to spend quite some time sharing a room there.At first the man and his_neighbour refused to say_anything to each other,but,one day,tired of the silence,they got to talking.As time passed,they became friends,until one day they finally dared to discuss the piece of paper incident.The two realized that it had all been a misunderstanding,and that if they had talked to each other on the first occasion—instead_of jumping to conclusions about bad intentions—then none of this would have happened.Even better,they would still have their houses.

Paragraph 2:

Then came the moment for the two to leave the hospital.Both were determined to turn over a new leaf.After all,what was of greater importance than revenge,in their common understanding now,was to forget and forgive.Let bygones be bygones.Actually,the fact that the two neighbours were talking,and had become friends,helped them greatly to recover from their wounds,and to work together to rebuild their houses.
