说写作 --书面表达品经典

经 典 例 文 下面的图表反映的是某高中 2010 年与 2013 年学生健康 状况调查的部分数据,请你用英语为某报写一份报告,反映 你校四年间学生健康状况的变化情况,分析其中的原因,并 提出一些改进措施。

范 文 背 诵 Health A recent survey shows that the health of the students in our school has been going from bad to worse in the past three years. The number of shortsighted students has increased from 77% in 2010 to 93.5% in 2013, while that of overweight students from 38% to 57.2%. Nearly 15% more students don't have enough unhealthy. sleep because of more homework. students become mentally Besides, over 21% more

It seems to me that the reasons for this lie in heavier burden of study and more homework, thus making students unable to spare any time to take exercise or have enough sleep. To improve students' health, we call for less homework. Only in this way can students get plenty of sleep and be more healthy. Proper diets and exercise should also be paid attention to so that they won't easily put on weight. With their heavy burdens removed, students can then keep in normal mental health.
