And according to a survey by social networking site badoo. com, they all best illustrate(举例说明) the word “cool”. But just what does it mean to say someone is “cool”? Most would answer that it is something to do with being independent-minded and not following the crowd. Yale University art professor Robert Farris Thompson says that the term “cool” goes back to 15th century West African philosophy(哲学). “Cool” relates to ideas of grace(优雅) under pressure. “In Africa, ” he writes, “coolness is a positive quality which combines calmness, silence, and life. ” The modern idea of “cool” developed largely in the US in the period after World War Ⅱ. “Post-war ?cool? was in part an expression of
war-weariness. . . it went against the strict social rules of the time, ” write
sociologists Dick Pountain and David Robins in Cool Rules:Anatomy of an Attitude. But it was the American actor James Dean who became the symbol for “cool” in the hugely successful 1955 movie Rebel Without a Cause. Dean plays a tough guy who disobeys his parents and the authorities. He
always gets the girl, smokes cigarettes, wears a leather jacket and beats up bullies(欺凌弱小者). In the movie, Dean showed what “cool” would
mean to American young people for the next 60 years. Today the focus of “cool” has changed to athletics stars. Often in movies about schools, students gain popularity on the athletics field more than in the classroom. This can be seen quite clearly in movies like
Varsity Blues and John Tucker Must Die. But many teenagers also think being smart is cool. Chess and other thinking games have been becoming more popular in schools. “Call it the Harry Potterization of America—a time when being smart is the new cool, ” writes journalist Joe Sunnen. 1. Barack Obama, Lady Gaga and Steve Jobs are mentioned in the first paragraph to ________. A. introduce the topic B. draw our attention C. tell us what they have in common D. tell us what is “cool”
2. If you were considered “cool” in Africa in the 15th century, you ________. A. thought and acted differently from the majority B. had a calm and quiet attitude towards life C. didn?t observe rules and authorities D. had all kinds of “bad” manners 3. The heroes in Varsity Blues and John Tucker Must Die are likely to be those who ________. A. do very well in their studies B. are very skilled at sports C. are good at chess and other thinking games D. have supernatural powers like Harry Potter 4. Which of the following is NOT true according to the article？ A. It is generally considered “cool” to be independent-minded and not to follow the crowd. B. “Cool” was used as early as the 15th century. C. Disobeying one?s parents and the authorities is considered “cool” among American young people nowadays. D. Getting the first place in an exam can also be considered “cool”. 5. What does the article mainly talk about? A. The origin of the word “cool”. B. The kinds of people who are “cool”.

If used and completed in a right way, anyway it can benefit most students at school. Homework encourages students to review and practice the materials before the next class or test. Even under no pressure, they can understand materials by teaching themselves. If homework hasn?t been assigned, students may always ask their teacher for schoolwork later. Or, they have to memorize lessons mechanically. Even some can feel ashamed of what occasional questions cannot be answered in class when they skip out on homework. In fact, homework can be a powerful problem-solving aid to teachers. They can use the assignment to judge how effectively they teach their students in class.
No doubt, all students are different, and they can learn better through their own different methods. If really so, teachers need a unique challenge to offer a lesson plan which provides the greatest benefit to all their students. Some students learn better through hands-on activities, some through reading, some through hearing its explanation, but others still learn more from doing homework by themselves. In brief, homework can be a great benefit for most students in a general view. 【写作内容】 1. 以约 30 个词概括上文的主要内容。 2. 以约 120 个词谈谈你对中学阶段作业的看法，内容包括： （1）谈谈作业对学生学习所产生的影响； （2）你或你的朋友是如何对待作业的，并说明理由； （3）你对如何用作业促进学习和培养良好习惯方面的建议。 【写作要求】 1. 作文中可以使用亲身经历或虚构的故事，也可以参照阅读材料 的内容，但不得直接引用原文中的句子。 2. 作文中不能出现真实姓名和学校名称。 【评分标准】 概括准确，语言规范，内容合适，语篇连贯。

Ⅳ.【参考范文】 Homework can be a great tool and a magic key for students and teachers respectively. It encourages students to learn lessons, and helps the teachers judge their teaching. Different students learn differently, but homework can be beneficial. Obviously, homework can help middle school students consolidate what has been instructed in class, prepare for the next class, use reference materials and explore further subjects. Doing homework is a good learning method, which can increase their knowledge and improve their abilities and skills. However, homework is just to satisfy schoolbooks. So, sometimes I complete part of homework. As we attend other activities, such as sports and events, we should have time to watch current news, read newspapers and extra books, and chat with peers. Undoubtedly, homework becomes an important part of education.
Students have their homework every night until they leave school! So I suggest homework should be set in order to strengthen what is taught in class and develop good work habits. Also, regular homework practice should prepare for assessments and build confidence and self-esteem.
