III. 任务型阅读 Social change is more likely to occur in societies where there is a mixture of different kinds of people than in societies where people are similar in many ways. The simple reason for this is that there are more different ways of looking at things present in the first kind of society. There are more ideas, more disagreements in interest, and more groups and organizations with different beliefs. In addition, there is usually a greater worldly interest and greater tolerance in mixed societies. All these factors tend to promote social change by opening more areas of life to decision. In a society where people are quite similar in many ways, there are fewer occasions for people to see the need or the opportunity for change because everything seems to be the same. And although conditions may not be satisfactory, they are at least customary and undisputed(没有争议的)。 Within a society, social change is also likely to occur more frequently and more readily in the material aspects of the culture than in the non-material, for example, in technology rather than in values; in what has been learned later in life rather than what was learned early; in the less basic and less emotional aspects of society than in their opposites; in the simple elements rather than in the complex ones; in form rather than in substance; and in elements that acceptable to the culture rather than in strange elements. Furthermore, social change is easier if it is gradual. For example, it comes more readily in human on a continuous scale rather than one with sharp dichotomies(分别). This is one reason why change has not come more quickly to African Americans as compared to other American minorities, because of the sharp difference in appearance between them and the white people. Topic (1)_____________that determine the ease with which (2)_______________change occurs.
(a) Different points (5)__________ (b) Disagreements interest (c) Different beliefs of in (a) People have got (6)_____________to the conditions in society. (b) Nothing seems to be (7)___________
Social change is more (8)_______________to occur in (a) the material aspects; 模块五学案 (b) what people learned when they were (9)_______________; (c) (10)____________basic and emotional aspects of society.

Do you and your friends act in a caring way towards one another? Do you respect them and do they respect

you? But most of all, do you value relationships and love spending time together? Friendship is more than just hanging out together at lunch and gossiping about other people. True friendship is when two people have respect for each other, and really care about each other’s feelings and dreams. You need to be able to be honest with your friends. Friends share with each other important things that they would not share with others. Friends also stick up for(支持) each other and enjoy spending time together. As you grow and become mature, your friends may change, but that does not mean that you have to do away with your old friends. Your relationships may change though. Pay close attention to different types of friends you have had — the way your friends treat you, what sort of things you can talk about, and the things you like to do. Soon you will see what qualities in a friend are the most important to you. Whatever it is that you value most, make sure that your needs, as well as your friends’ needs, are met. If you are feeling ignored or mistreated by a friend, you need to think more about your relationship. Friendship should bring you joy but not misery. Find out what you want out of a friendship, and try not to be overtaken by those around you who are not yet mature enough to commit to(全心全意地投入) a true friendship. 1. Charles Caleb’s words imply that ____. A. one may fall ill without friendships B. people who have close friends are healthy C. we should value good friendships D. everyone is dependent on their friends 2. In the writer’s opinion, the most important thing real friends should do is that they _____. A. cherish friendship and enjoy spending time together B. shouldn’t be selfish but generous to one another C. are honest to one another and share the same interests and opinions D. often judge the quality of their friendship and try to improve it 3. The writer may prefer ____. A. traveling with friends B. gossiping with friends C. being loyal to friends D. treating friends badly 4. According to the writer, in our life _____. A. we may have different types of friends during different periods B. friends are like passers-by who come and leave now and then C. it will take a long time to judge who may be our friends D. our friends may have different needs from ours 五．任务型阅读 Teaching kids to fish sometimes puzzles us parents. Now I’d like to give you a few tips. First of all, start them young. Get them in a boat, or on a pier(码头), or on the bank at as young an age as you possibly can. Obviously this means being extremely conscious about their safety. Whatever you do, DON’T plan on any fishing yourself. If fishing is going to happen, the fishing will be done by

the kids with your help! This lets you pay attention to them and not ignore them while you fish. Next, make sure you plan the first trips to someplace where you can actually catch a lot of fish. At this point, it doesn’t matter what kind or how big, just make sure they can catch some. A small child’s patience is very short, and waiting 30 minutes for a bite will turn them off in a hurry. You may need to go to a small pond where the fish are dying to eat bread balls. Any type of fish will do. Remember, this is for them, not for you. As they fish, cheer for every fish they catch. Make a really big deal out of it. Take pictures. And if it’s possible, take some home to clean. Let the child help you clean with a table knife, so he can’t get hurt. Make sure he makes and sees the connection from catching to cleaning to cooking. As soon as you have the fish cleaned, it’s into the kitchen to start cooking. Let him flour and cornmeal the fish. Let him see the fish cooking, and talk about how good they are. Then when it’s ready, make sure you brag（吹嘘） on the fact that he (or she ) caught these fish, and “aren’t they good?” In this way, I’m sure your kids will be interested in fishing and good at fishing. Start them young ·Be aware of (1)_________ ·Plan a fishing trip for the (2)_________ not for yourself. ·Choose places where the kids can catch fish easily because a small child’s patience doesn’t (4)_________ long. ·Regardless of the kind and (5)_________ of fish. ·Make a big deal out of it. ·Take pictures. ·Take some home and let the child help to clean with a table knife to avoid (6)_________ hurt. ·(8)_________him to flour and cornmeal the fish. ·Let him see the fish cooking. ·Talk about how good they are. ·Make them (10)_________ in and good at fishing.

The explorers, from a company called Odyssey Marine Exploration, found the sunken remains of a centuries-old treasure ship they have nicknamed the Black Swan. Divers have so far brought up more than 500,000 gold and silver coins from the wreck. Odyssey Marine Exploration is based in Tampa, Florida. The company makes money by selling treasure to numismatists(银币奖章收藏家) and other collectors. But before Odyssey can profit from the incredible coin discovery, it has to establish ownership of the coins. Already, the government of Spain has claimed that the ship may have belonged to Spain. If so, Spain says the coins belong to Spain, not Odyssey Marine Exploration. Odyssey has yet to release the type, date, or nationality of the coins. And it won't reveal the location of the shipwreck either. The company is keeping the treasure at a secret location in the United States. Experts say it is hard to know for sure how much money the treasure is worth. Some reports suggest that it could be worth as much as $500 million! If so, the Black Swan would be the most valuable shipwreck ever found. Odyssey says there are still artifacts (古董) down with the wreck. John Morris, one of the founders of Odyssey, says the company is working to figure out more about the Black Swan. Two archeologists oversaw the recovery of the treasure. "Our research suggests that there were a number of Colonial period shipwrecks that were lost in the area where this site is located," Morris said in a press release. The company is not saying if they know the true identity of the ship. Some news reports have suggested that the Black Swan could actually be the Merchant Royal, a British ship that sunk in 1641 with thousands of pounds of gold and silver, many of which were Spanish coins. Morris said that Odyssey would share part of the loot if courts decide that other countries, such as Spain or Britain, have a legal claim to it. In the meantime, Odyssey plans to return to the wreck to recover even more artifacts and riches. 59. According to the article, what is Black Swan? A. The name given to a sunken ship found by Odyssey. B. The real name of the treasure ship found by Odyssey. C. The treasure found by Odyssey.
- 18 -
D. The exploration ship owned by Odyssey. 60. It can be inferred that the government of Spain has claimed the ownership of the ship because_________. A. the coins are found in their territory B. the sunken ship belonged to Spain C. the coins are mostly Spanish ones D. the shipwreck was found by a Spanish company 61. Odyssey's research shows that __________. A. more shipwrecks could be found in the area where they found the treasure B. the shipwreck could be the Merchant Royal C. both Spain and Britain have a legal claim to the treasure D. The shipwreck is an ancient British ship 62. Which is the best title to the article? ___________ A. Mystery About the Black Swan B. Where is the location of the Shipwreck? C. Treasure Beneath the Rolling Waves of the Atlantic Ocean D. Deep-sea Debate: Who Owns Treasure from Old Shipwrecks? 五．任务型阅读 There are a number of languages spoken throughout the world. Every person knows at least one language, which he learns in his childhood and is routinely used for speaking and writing. However, many people are fond of learning two or more languages, so they try to be bilingual, which means that they try to have the knowledge of two or more languages. And being bilingual can bring a person a number of benefits in various aspects. For example: A person can get cognitive(认知的) benefits from it. The bilingual people have two or more words for each idea and object. Therefore, a bilingual person can develop a creative thinking. The bilinguals are aware of which language should be spoken with which person in a particular situation. So they are more sensitive(敏感的) to the needs of the listener than the people who only use one language: Being bilingual also improves and enriches a person's mental development. Being bilingual has a positive effect on a person's character. The bilinguals are able to switch between different languages and talk to different people in various languages. It increases a sense of self-esteem( 自尊). Being bilingual creates a powerful link in different people from different countries. A bilingual education offers better curriculum(课程) results. The bilinguals tend to show a higher performance in examinations and tests. The bilinguals find it quite easy to learn and speak three, four or more languages. Being bilingual offers potential employment benefits. It offers a wider choice of jobs in various fields. The bilinguals can get a great many career opportunities in transport, tourism, public relations, marketing and sales, banking, translation, law, teaching and so on.

The new law, which came into effect yesterday, updates a law enacted（颁布） in 1988 that
- 25 -
focused on supplying water to needy areas, but didn’t pay a great deal of attention to environmental protection. The previous law, for example, gave local authorities power over waterways in these areas, but didn’t pay attention to the sources of those rivers and lakes. So, Shanghai was responsible for cleaning and protecting the lower reaches of the Chang Jiang River but had no say in how the river’s upper reaches, which feed into Shanghai, are maintained. The new law will make it easier to control the amount of waste that ends up in local rivers and reduce inefficient use of waterways, said Zhang Jia-yi, director of the Shanghai Water Affairs Bureau, on the bureau’s website commenting on law yesterday. Zhang said the new law focuses on the efficient use of water sources and emphasizes the harmonious(和谐) development of China’s population, its economy and environment. Zhang also emphasizes the city will crack down on companies and individuals that pollute the city’s water sources. The bureau sets up a special force to investigate(调查) water pollution in March. So far this year, the bureau has published more than 3 million in fines on various polluters, Zhang said. 1. The best title for the news report should be ______. A. A new Law Is Born B. A New Water Law to Protect Rivers C. Is it Necessary to Protect the Rivers D. Make Full Use of Water Sources 2. The underlined phrase “crack down on” means _____. A. bring up carefully B. speak highly of C. deal with seriously D. destroy completely 3. Which of the following is NOT true? A. The law in 1988 is suitable for the new requirements. B. The new law will stop waste being poured into the Chang Jiang River. C. A lot of polluting units have been fined this year. D. The new law and the old one are the same in protecting the environment. 4. We can infer from the passage that _____ . A.the problem of protecting the water sources wasn’t paid much attention to B. no laws were carried out to manage the water sources in Shanghai. C. the new law mainly emphasizes how to make use of the water sources. D. companies or individuals that polluted the water sources didn’t get fined. 【B】 During recent years, floods and flash floods have caused billions of dollars in damage each year. They are among the most common and widespread of all natural disasters. Even more importantly, they’re No.1 weather-related killer. A flood can happen anywhere along the Mississippi, in New England, even in the desert.
- 26 -
The following are some fascinating facts about floods and flash floods. A flood （commonly called river flood） high flow of water from a river or similar body of water, is happening over a period of time too long to be considered a flash flood. Flooding is caused in many ways. Winter or spring rains, together with melting snows, can fill rivers too quickly. Heavy rains from hurricanes or other tropical（热带的）systems can also produce river flooding. The Mississippi River Flood of 1993 was caused by repeated heavy rain from thunderstorms over a period of weeks. Flash floods are quickly-rising floods which are usually the result of heavy rains over a short period of time, often only several hours or even less. They can also be caused by ice jams 冰塞） （ on rivers related to a winter or spring melting, or occasionally even a dam break. The constant influx（汇集） of water finally caused a great overflow to begin, powerful enough to sweep vehicles away, roll big stones into roadways, uproot trees, level（夷平） buildings, and knock bridges down. The speed of the rising of water is the most frightening. Do remember: Move to higher ground and stay away from low areas during heavy rain. Stay out of flooded areas. Never allow children especially to play or walk in flowing water. Never drive your car into water of unknown depths. 5. What is the best title for the passage? A. The power of floods B. The damage of floods C. The occurrence of floods D. The facts about floods 6. The last paragraph is mainly about ______ . A. flood safety tips B. the reasons for floods C. the waste water systems D. the swift flood waters 7. According to the passage, people are afraid of _____ most during flash floods. A. the constant influx of water B. the sudden occurrence of flash floods C. the quick rising water D. the great damage of flash floods 8. According to the passage, flash floods are ______. A. great floods resulted from heavy rains in a short time B. floods rising quickly from heavy rains in a short time C. quickly-rising floods in a long time D. floods happening over a long time 自我课后反思】 ： 【自我课后反思】 我的错题集： _____________________________________________________________________________

I seek friends whose qualities illuminate() me and train me up for love. It is for these people that I reserve the glowing hours, too good not to share. When I was in the eighth grade,m I had a friend. We were shy and “too serious” about our studies when it was veconing fashionable with our classmates to learn acceptable social behaviors. We said little at scchool, but she would come to my house and we would sit down with ppwncils and paper, and one of us would say: “Let’s start with a train whistle today.” We would sit quietly together and write separate poems or stories that grew out of a train whistle. Then we would read them aloud. At the end of that school year, we ,too, were changed into social creatures and the stories and poems stopped. When I lived for a time in London, I had a friend. He was in despair(绝望). But our
- 31 -
friendship was based on the idea in each of us that we would be sorry later if we did not explore this great city because we had felt bad at the time. We met every Sunday for five weeks and found many excellent things. We walked until our despair disappeared and then we parted. We gave London to each other. For almost four years I have had remarkable friend whose imagination illuminates mine. We write long letters in which we often discover our strangest selves. Each of us appears, sometines in a funny way, in the other’s dreams. She and I agree that, at certain times, we seem to be parts of the same mind, in my most interesting moments, I often think “Yes, I must tell---” We have never met. It is such comforting companions I wish to keep. One bright hour with their kind is worth more to me than the lifetime services of a psychologist(心理学家), who will only fill up the healing(愈合的) silence necessary to those darkest moments in which I would rather be my own best friend. 1.In the eighth grade, what the author did before developing proper social behavior was to _____________. A.become serious about her study B.go to her friend’s house regularly C.learn from her classmates at school D.share poems and stories with her friend 2. In Paragraph 3, “We gave London to each other’ peobably means ___________. A. our exploration of London was a memorable gift to both of us B.we were unwillling to tear ourselves away from London C.our unpleasant feelings about London disappeared D.we parted eith each other in London 3.According to Paragraph 4, the author and her friend _____________. A.call each other regularly B.have similar personalities C.enjoy writing to each other D.dream of meeting each other 4.In the darkest moments, theauthor would prefer to ______________. A.seek professional help B.be left alone C.stay with her best friend D.break the silence 【B 】 According to the definition of “create”, ordinary people are creative every day. To create means “to bring into being, to cause to exist”------something iachof us does daily. We are creative whenever we look at or think about something in a new way. First, this involves an awareness of oursurroundings. It means using all of our senses to become aware of
- 32 -
our world. This may be as simple as being aware of color and texture, as well as taste, when we plan a meal. Above all, it is the ability to notice things that others might miss. The second part of creativity is an ability to see relationships among things. If we believe the expression, “There is nothing new under the sun,” the creativity is remaking or recombining the old in new ways. For example, we might do this by finding a more effective way to study or a better way to arrange our furniture, or we might make a new combination of camera lenses and filters to create an unusaual photograph. The third part of creativity is the courage and drive to make use of our new ideas, to apply them to achieve some new results. To think up a new concept is one thing; to put the idea to work is another. These three parts of creativity are involved in all the great works of genius, but they are also involved in many of our daily activities. 1.Which of the folowing activities is NOT a creative one according to the passage? A. To prepare a meal. B. To arrange the furniture in a peculiar way. C. To buy some books from a bookstore. D. To “write’ a letter with the computer. 2.The author holds the opinion that________________. A.creativity is of high demand B.creativity is connected with a deep insight to some extent C.creativity is to create something new and concrete D.to practise is the only way to cultivate one’s creativity 3. “There is nothing new under the sun.” implies that___________. A.we can seldom create new things B.a new thing is only a tale C.a new thing can only be created on the basis of original things D.we can scarcely see really new things in the world 4.What does the author think about the relationship between a new thought and its being put into practice? A.It’s more difficult to create a new thought than to apply it in practice. B.To fine a new thought will definitely lead to the production of a new thing. C.One may come up with a new thought,but may not be able to put it into peactice. D.A man with an excellent ability of praactice can easily become an inventor. 5.The best title for this passage is ________________. A.How to Cultivate One’s Creativity B.What is Creativity C.The Importande of Creativity D.Creativity ------A Not Faraway Thing

【A 】 The winter holidays are a special time at the White House. Each year, about 44,000 people come to see the holiday decorations or to attend holiday parties at the President’s home in Washington, D.C. I was able to attend a press preview of the holiday decorations recently, which was hosted by First Lady Laura Bush. This year’s theme for the decorations is “All Things Bright and Beautiful.” The decorations are all made of fresh flowers, garlands(花环), and fruits. The flowers will have to be changed every few days to keep the look fresh. The main Christmas tree is in the Blue Room. It’s an 18-foot fir tree—tall enough that the chan-delier(吊灯) had to be removed to make room for it. Fresh white lilies(百合), crystal garlands, and white lights decorate the White House Christmas tree. The room smells of pine and lilies. Mrs. Bush was asked whether she called the tree a holiday tree or a Christmas tree. “We know that Americans celebrate the season in a lot of different ways,” she said. “We’ll have a party and a reception here at the White House later during the month. But I think we’ve always called this the White House Christmas tree.” Another centerpiece of the decorations each year is the gingerbread house(姜饼屋), made by chief Thaddeus Dubois.“This is his second gingerbread house,” Mrs. Bush said. “And this year Dubois painstakingly(辛苦地， 辛勤地) made it special.” The gingerbread house was made with 100 pounds of gingerbread, 150 pounds of white and dark chocolate, and clear, poured sugar windows. A strand of white lights inside the Gingerbread White House made it glow. 1. Mrs. Bush chose “All Things Bright and Beautiful” as the theme for the decorations to __________. . A. highlight nature’s beauty B. show the great wealth of the family C. express her love of the country D. differ from other people’s ideas 2. Which of the following can probably be used to describe the White House after the decorations? A. New and clean. B. Elegant(高贵的) and beautiful. C. Smelly and shaky. D. Luxurious(豪华的) and serious.
- 38 -
3. The passage is mainly about ______. . A. how Americans observe Christmas B. decorating the White House for holidays C. the differences between a holiday tree and a Christmas tree D. how to select a present for the White House 【 B 】 In 1990 Peter Salovey Ph. D and John Mayer Ph. D coined the term Emotional Intelligence. Their research has opened many people’s eyes to the fact that EQ or emotional quotient holds the key to one’s happiness and well being, and helped us to realize that our emotional makeup can be so much more important than our mental, or what we refer to as IQ—intelligent quotient. IQ is essential for learning and mental development and EQ is much more important for happiness and success. Some time ago a study done in the United States proved that doctors who were impatient and did not exhibit much care towards their patients were more likely to be sued (起诉) for malpractice(渎职), whereas doctors who were caring and attentive to their patients were less likely to be sued even if they made a critical mistake. A woman wrote to newspaper recently telling about her brother. He was apparently a genius but did not get along with people, quit every job he started, and eventually became a taxi driver. These are just a few examples of people with high IQ but low EQ. We have all known people who did not complete college, but who have become very successful in business. We call them street smart. We also know people who, on the whole, are positive, communicative, pleasant and supportive—these people enjoy a high level of EQ. Many people wish to improve their EQ for the purpose of becoming happier, more successful, and at the same time more balanced, individuals. The remarkable thing about EQ is that it can always, at any age, be improved, unlike IQ, which remains more or less fixed in adult life. Now psychologists start workshops focusing on showing people how to increase their EQ. This enables them to accomplish their dreams and desires, rid themselves of negative patterns and shows them that once they master their inner world, their outer world becomes much better. 1. In the second paragraph, the author gives us two examples to show that _____________. . A. doctors in the United States are often involved in cases B. working as a taxi driver in the United States requires high EQ C. those with high IQ are often engaged in the low-rank work D. those with low EQ have a harder time surviving in life 2. Which of the following can’t be used to describe the people with a high level of EQ? A. They are positive, communicative, pleasant and supportive. B. They are optimistic and untroubled by difficulties. C. They are impatient and show little care towards others. D. They may be very successful in business.
- 39 -
3. It can be inferred that predicting future successes, ______. A. a person’s brainpower might actually matter less than a person’s character B. a person’s IQ might be more important than a person’s EQ C. IQ plays an important role as well as EQ D. both IQ and EQ are the key points that should be considered 4. Which of following is NOT true according to the passage? A. People with high IQ are likely to gain knowledge quickly. B. At work EQ gets you hired easily and IQ gets you promoted. C. Having a high IQ will help us in some ways but having a high EQ might help us even more. D. People’s EQ could be raised much more than their IQ. 【自我课后反思】 自我课后反思】 ： 我的错题集： _____________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________ 我的疑惑： _____________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________

In addition to self-awareness, imagination, and conscience, it is the fourth quality — independent will — that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in agreement with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to actively carry out the program we have developed through the other three qualities. The human will is an amazing thing. Time after time, it has overcome unbelievable difficulties. The Helen Kellers of this world give dramatic(给人深刻印象的) evidence to the value, the power of the independent will. But as we examine this quality in the context of effective self-management, we realize it’s usually not the dramatic, the visible(可见的), the once-in-a-lifetime, up-by-the-bootstraps(自立 自强的) effort that brings lasting success. This special ability comes from learning how to use this great quality in the decisions we make every day. The degree to which we have developed our independent will in our everyday lives is measured by our personal honesty. Honesty is, fundamentally, the value we place on ourselves.
- 50 -
It’s our ability to make and keep promises to ourselves, to “walk our talk.” Effective management is putting first things first. While leadership decides what “first things” are, it is management that puts them first, day-by-day, moment-by-moment. Management is discipline (training to be self-controlled), carrying it out. Discipline obtains from belief—belief in a set of values, belief in an overriding(最主要的) purpose, to a long-term or short term goal that must be carried out. In other words, if you are an effective manager of yourself, your discipline comes from within; it is a function of your independent will. You are a follower of your own deep values and their source. And you have the will, the quality to control your feelings and moods rather than depend on others or have your work half done.

That answer is different for everyone．For some ” meaningful work might be helping others organize their office． others it may mean making a For million dollars． What really matters is how you see it．What is meaningful work to you? Take out a piece of paper and answer these questions．How do you define meaningful work? When do you feel like you are really making a difference? What work have you done so far that feels the most meaningful? Write down whatever comes to mind． It is very easy to start judging yourself as being selfish．Stop! Allow yourself to be honest．The fact is when Picasso painted, he was doing it because he liked to paint． was not thinking．Oh He “ I hope this brings joy to others’ lives． He painted because he wanted to．When Beethoven ” composed, he did it because he loved music．Even scientists searching for a cure for cancer are immersed in their work because it fascinates them． It is easy to downplay the importance of work that feels meaningful．I remember Tony Robbins told a story of talking with the owner of a major company．The man said to Tony, “I wish I could do what you do because it makes such a difference in people’ lives． Tony said, “You’ s ” ve got to be kidding!

The answer lies in not one but several causes．One possibility is the fact that woman have greater career options．In the past, women who chose to work outside the home had two basic choices: nursing or teaching．Today, more women than ever are in the work force, but their options have greatly increased．There are women doctors, lawyers, firefighters and police officers．In fact, women today are found in nearly every field of work．Nursing has been left behind, as women move on to jobs with higher pay and greater status．A woman or man in the nursing field is often looked down upon as “merely a nurse” ．Teachers may be also at fault．Many high school students are actually being steered away from nursing, told by teachers that they are“too bright to be a nurse” ． Americans are living longer than ever and requiring more medical attention．In fact, the number of elderly patients has almost doubled in the past twenty years．Obviously a larger population requires more nurses．AIDS and other diseases have caused more and more people to need nursing care．Usually fatal diseases mean long drawn-out hospital stay, that is to say, more nurses are needed to care for these patients．It is estimated that the demand for nurses will be doubled the supply in the coming ten years． 13．What does the second paragraph mainly talk about?

Edmund Halley was an English scientist who lived over 200 years ago . He studied the observations of comets (彗星) which other scientists had made . The orbit of one particular comet was a very difficult mathematical problem . He could not figure it out . Neither could
- 67 -
other scientists who dealt with such problems . However , Halley had a friend named Newton, who was a brilliant ( 有 才 华 的 ) mathematician . Newton thought he had already worked out that problem , but he could not find the papers on which he had done it . He told Halley that the orbit of a comet had the shape of an ellipse (椭圆) . Now Halley set to work .He figured out the orbits of some of the comets that had been observed by scientists . He made a surprising discovery . The comets that had appeared in the years 1531, 1607, and 1682 all had the same orbit . Yet their appearances had been 75 to 76 years apart (相隔). This seemed very strange to Halley. The different comets followed the same orbit . The more Halley thought about it , the more he thought that there had not been three different comets , as people thought . He decided that they had simply seen the same comet three times .The comet had gone away and had come back again . It was an astonishing idea ! Halley felt certain enough to make a prediction of what would happen in the future . He decided that this comet would appear in the year 1758. There were 53 years to go before Halley’s prediction could be tested . In 1758 the comet appeared in the sky . Halley did not see it , for he had died some years before .

But now it is being considered quite seriously by many nations, especially since scientists have warned that the human race will outgrow its fresh water supply faster than it runs out of food. Glaciers(冰河) are a possible source of fresh water that has been overlooked until recently. Three quarters of the Earth’s fresh water supply is still tied up in glacial ice, a reservoir(水库)of untapped fresh water so large that it could maintain all the rivers of the world for 1,000 years. Floating in the oceans every year are 7,659 trillion metric tons of ice stored in 10,000 icebergs that break away from the polar ice caps, more than ninety percent of them from Antarctica.
- 71 -
Huge glaciers that stretch over the shallow continental shelf give birth to icebergs throughout the year. Icebergs are not like sea ice, which is formed when the sea itself freezes, rather, they are formed entirely on land, breaking off when glaciers spread over the sea. As the y drift away from the polar region, icebergs sometimes move mysteriously in a direction opposite to the wind, pulled by subsurface currents. Because they melt more slowly than smaller pieces of ice, icebergs have been known to drift as far north as 35 degrees south of the equator in the Atlantic ocean. To move them to parts of the world where they are needed would not be too difficult. The difficulty arises in other technical matters, such as the prevention of rapid melting in warmer climates and the storing of fresh water in great volume. But even if the icebergs lost half of their volume in moving， the water they could provide would be far cheaper than that produced by removing salt from sea water. 1.What does the underlined sentence mean in the text? A.Nowadays, scientists think too much of glaciers. B.People has been using fresh water from glaciers recently. C.Scientists used to consider glaciers as a source of fresh water. D.Scientists didn’t realize that we could get fresh water from glaciers. 2.Which is NOT the reason why scientists think glaciers are a possible source of fresh water? A.There is a huge amount of water stored in glaciers. B.It is easy for people to use the water from glaciers. C.Icebergs are not too much influenced by the temperature. D.It is not too difficult to transport icebergs to regions which lack water. 3.Which is NOT true according to the text? A.Icebergs once moved35 degrees north from Antarctica. B.Every year about 9,000 icebergs break away from Antarctica. C.Scientists tried to use the water from glaciers long time ago. D.Before human beings have nothing to eat, they will run out of fresh water. 4.What can we learn from the last paragraph? A.people often get fresh water by removing the salt from water. B.People have built large containers to store water from glaciers. C.Scientists have found ways to keep icebergs from rapid melting. D.If half of the icebergs melt, it won’t be economic for people to get water from them. 【B 】 In 1993,New York State ordered stores to charge a certain amount of money on containers for drinks. Within a year, millions of aluminum(铝) cans and glass and plastic bottles had been returned. Plenty of companies were eager to accept the aluminum and glass as raw materials for new products, but because few could figure out what to do with the plastic, much of it was buried with rubbish in the landfills. This was not limited to New York. Unfortunately, there were
- 72 -
too few uses for second-hand plastic. Today one out of five plastic bottles for soft drinks is recycled in the United States.The reason for the change is that now there are dozens of companies across the country buying used plastic bottles for soft drinks and turning them into fence posts, paint brushes,etc. As the New York experience shows, recycling means more than simply separating valuable materials from the rest of the rubbish.. Waste remains waste until somebody figures out how to give it a seccond life--- and until arrangements to save money give that second life value, Without markets to collect used materials for recycling, throwaways actually reduce prices for used materials. Making landfill space smaller, and rising costs for burying and burning rubbish are forcing local governments to look more closely at recycling. In many areas, the East Coast especially,recycling is already the least expensive waste-management choice. For every ton of waste recycled, a city doesn’t need to pay for getting rid of throwaways, which , in parts of New York, is a large amount of money, and saves more than $100 per ton. Recycling winds up the local economy by creating more jobs, reducing the cost of pollution control and supplying industries with more cheap refined materials. 1.What does the underlined word “this” refer to? A.Extra pay for drinks. B.Using second-hand plastics. C.recycling of aluminumand glass. D.treating plastics as rubbish. 2.The key peoblem in dealing with returned plastic containers was _______________. A.to sell them at a good price B.how to turn them into useful things C.how to reduce their recycling cost D.to lower the prices of used materials 3.Recycling has become the first choice to get rid of rubbish mainly because ____________. A.local governments find it easy to manage B.recycling interests the jobless C.recycling causes little pollution D.other measures cost much more 4.It can be concluded from the passage that ___________________. A.rubbish can cover the shoutage of materials B.local governments in the US can expect big values from pollution control C.recycling is a good way to be suggested to deal with waste D.landfills will still be widely used to get rid of throwaways V..根据所给首字母写出单词的正确形式，使句子完整通顺，每空一词 根据所给首字母写出单词的正确形式，使句子完整通顺， 根据所给首字母写出单词的正确形式 1.China’s economy has been growing s________________in the past 20 years. 2.The teenagers rushed to the shop where the MP3s are cheap,r_____________ in price between $50 and $100. 3.Upon his a____________ at the village, the doctor began to operate on the wounded soldiers.

Unfortunately, in many parts of the world man has not realized that the third of these services is the most important. In his eagerness to draw quick profit from the trees, he has cut them down in large numbers, only to find that without them he has lost the best friends he had. Two thousand years ago a rich and powerful country cut down its trees to build warships, with which to gain itself an empire. It gained the empire but, without its trees, its soil became hard and poor. When the empire fell to pieces, the country found itself faced by floods and starvation. Even though a government realizes the importance of a plentiful supply of trees, it is difficult for it to persuade the villager to see this. The villager wants wood to cook his food with, and he can earn money by making charcoal(木炭) or selling wood to the townsman（城市居民）. He is usually too lazy or too careless to plant and look after trees. So unless the government has a
- 79 -
good system of control, or can educate the people, the forests will slowly disappear. This does not only mean that the villager’s sons and grandsons have fewer trees. The results are even more serious. For where there are trees their roots break the soil up—allowing the rain to sink in and also hold the soil, thus preventing it being washed away easily, but where there are no trees, the soil becomes hard and poor. The rain falls on hard ground and flows away on the surface, causing floods and carrying away with it the rich topsoil, in which crops grow so well. When all the topsoil is gone, nothing remains but a worthless desert. 1. The purpose that the writer wrote this article is to ______. A. tell people the use of wood B. tell people the function of tree roots C. warn that man mustn’t destroy forests any more D. explain how trees help to prevent drought and floods 2. In the writer’s opinion,_____, or the forests will slowly disappear. A. measures must be taken B. people shouldn’t draw benefit from the tree C. government must realize the serious results D. unless trees never be cut down 3. According to the article we know it is _____ to prevent the forests from slowly disappearing. A. necessary but impossible B. necessary but difficult C. impossible and unimportant D. difficult and impossible 4. In the last two paragraphs the writer wanted to make it clear that _____ . A. where there are no trees, the soil becomes poor but soft B. where there are many trees, there are more floods C. where there are no trees, the land might become desert slowly D. floods will make the land become desert 【B 】 When the famous dancer Fred Astaire was interviewed for a job by a Hollywood producer, the movie “expert” turned him down, saying, “Can’t sing. Can’t act. Dances a little.” Here’s another stupid mistake. When the great scientist Albert Einstein was at school, his teachers considered him rather dull. And a final story, the famous Polish pianist Paderewski was told by a teacher that he’d never be a success as a performer because the middle finger on each hand was too short. What lessons can be drawn from these three experiences? First, true genius (天才) cannot be suppressed(压抑). For some reason or other it works its way out. Second, early judgements of a person’s abilities may be unfair or just wrong. Third, when there is a real determination to succeed, obstacles(障碍) fall by the wayside.

The famous motto “ad astra per aspera” can be translated as “To the stars through hardships.” Astaire, Einstein and Paderewski proved their critics wrong. 1. Which of the following best expresses the main idea of the passage? A. Fred Astaire was a famous dancer. B. True ability will always make itself known. C. Some people never get discouraged. D. Albert Einstein proved his teachers wrong. 2. When Paderewski’s teachers told him he’d never be a success, they were ____. A. being humorous B. cheerful, though concerned C. somewhat hesitant D. seriously mistaken 3. “Ad astra per aspera” is used in the passage _____. A. as a motto for the three men’s lives B. to show the value of Latin C. to send the reader to the dictionary D. to point out that genius is always recognized early 4. The writer of the passage thinks that the reader _____. A. knows that the three men were successes B. someday dreams to become like one of the men C. sympathizes(同情) with the poor teachers of the three men D. knows that Fred Astaire was an actor famous for performing Shakespeare’s plays 【C 】 Seven out of 10 people have tried to learn a language at some point in their life and most wish they could speak one more fluently, a survey found. And nine out of 10 people want their children to learn foreign languages at primary school, said the poll for the OCR exam board(牛 津剑桥皇家考试委员会). Languages are no longer compulsory （义务的） pupils aged 14 and for over. But the government wants all primary school pupils in England to learn a language by the end of the decade. A survey of 1,000 people was carried out, which is organised by the National Centre of Languages. The study suggested people in London were the most likely (78%) to have studied another language, Scots were next at 74%, followed by the northeast of England (71%). In the west of England, more than six in 10 have knowledge of another language. Barrie Hunt from OCR said: “People are often very negative about Britain’s grasp of foreign languages but in reality the number who can speak a second language is impressive. The great joke is that many of these people will have no formal qualification to show their family, friends and employers what they can do, whether they are fluent or just able to hold a short conversation in another language.”
- 81 -
He said OCR had set a new language scheme called Asset Languages to encourage people of all ages to learn languages in bite-sized amounts and get a qualification in them. The scheme also provides assessment for community languages spoken at home, such as Chinese, Urdu and Punjabi. Isabella Moore from the National Centre of Languages said: “Employers want evidence of good communication skills, confidence and outward-looking attitudes, so a language qualification is an important addition to anyone’s resume.” 1. It can be inferred that _____. A. foreign language study is popular in UK B. foreign language study is a must for people of all ages C. it is especially easy for British people to study languages D. students of over 14 no longer study foreign languages 2. Which of the following has the fewest to have studied a foreign language? A. People from Scotland. B. People from the northeast of England. C. People in London. D. People from the west of England. 3. Which statement is TRUE according to the text? A. A language qualification is the only evidence of a high-quality employee. B. Speaking foreign languages is the most important skill required in employment among all. C. A language qualification is very difficult to get in UK. D. Many people in UK don’t have a qualification although they can speak foreign languages. 4. What’s the best title for the text? A. An Interesting Survey B. UK Loves Languages After All C. Language Teaching in UK D. Better to Get a Language Qualification

III. 阅读理解 【A 】 The State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH) sent the letter to the auction house on February 17, but only announced it in a statement Tuesday. “(In the letter) we requested they stop the auctions and hope the parties (to the auction) understand and respect this proper request from Chinese people,” the statement said. Christie’s will auction the two bronze sculptures of the heads of a rabbit and a rat on Wednesday. They are expected to fetch between 16 million and 20 million euros (US$20.8 million to 26 million). A spokesman for the SACH said Christie’s had replied to the letter, but he declined to discuss the content of the reply. The statement said many people in China and abroad were working hard to return the sculptures to China and the SACH had voiced the widespread request of Chinese people. “The SACH will follow developments.” A group of 81 Chinese lawyers and three foreign lawyers were organizing a campaign to stop the auctions. The Association for the Protection of Chinese Art in Europe (APACE) filed a motion 动议） the Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris 巴黎大审法院） Thursday, seeking （ at （ on an injunction （勒令） stop the auction. The court rejected the motion Monday. The heads were to among 12 animal head sculptures in the Old Summer Palace of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795) in Beijing. They were looted（掠夺）when the palace was burned down by Anglo-French allied forces during the Second Opium War in 1860.

“We believe there is a common understanding in the international community that looted cultural objects should be returned to their own countries. This is a basic cultural right of people in the origin countries,” the SACH statement said. Objects taken by foreign invaders since the 1860s, including many valuable objects from the Old Summer Palace, should be returned to China, it said. “The Chinese government is strongly against auctioning these cultural heritage items.” Meanwhile, the Chinese lawyers would “make every effort” to halt the auction at the Christie’s, said Li Xingfeng, a member of the group of lawyers, in Beijing. But he refused to elaborate（详细描述）on what they would do. “If they were sold, we would start legal proceedings against the buyer,” he said. “We hope to raise public attention in Europe to the fate of numerous Chinese works stolen in the past,” Ren Xiaohong, one of the group and and representing the APACE in Paris, said Monday. 1. Which of the following serves as the best title for the passage? A. Christie’s will auction two bronze sculptures of China. B. Chinese government writes to Christie's to stop auction. C.

The slump (暴跌) has been blamed on recent reports of eggs contaminated with melamine being exported to Hong Kong from a farm in Dalian, Liaoning province. Xiao Ying, a doctor from Beijing’s Chaoyang district, said he is becoming increasingly worried about where to get his protein, following food safety scares involving two of his staples, milk and eggs. The Dalian government yesterday issued a statement saying the melamine found in the eggs exported to Hong Kong might have come from contaminated poultry (家禽) feed. Officials from the city’s quality supervision, inspection and quarantine bureau have conducted a series of tests on the eggs produced on Sept 6 by Hanovo Foods (大连韩伟食品有 限公司), the statement said. Initial findings suggest the contamination came from the poultry feed, it said. A total of 72 batches of eggs from Hanovo have been tested, but only those produced on Sept 6
- 85 -
were found to be tainted, it said. The company said earlier that it had recalled seven containers of eggs from Hong Kong and that two others bound for the region had been sealed and prevented from being shipped. China Daily tried to contact Hanovo yesterday, but the company was unavailable to comment. Wu Beiwen, a resident of Dalian, said: “I just don’t buy eggs these days. I doubt the ones produced by other companies are safe.” “I’m a bit disappointed with the country’s food industry,” she said. At a Carrefour store in the city, a sales assistant who refused to give her name, said that although the management had not issued a statement to take Hanovo eggs off the shelves, the products had not been selling well. By Zhu Chengpei, Wang Hongyi and He Bolin Updated: 2008-10-30 07:31 4. According to the passage, we can infer that “melamine” can be _______.

Xiao Ying get his protein mainly from milk and eggs. B. Eggs from Hanovo were all found to be tainted. C. Hanovo company made comments about the tainted eggs. D. A Carrefour store decided to take Hanovo eggs off the shelves. 6. According to the passage, the article is from ______. A. a newspaper B. a magazine C. a book D. a website 7.

IV.任务阅读： 任务阅读： 任务阅读 Third-generation mobile phones, known as 3G, are the next big step for the telecom industry. Data speed in 3G networks is much quicker than that in present technology. This means users can have high-speed Internet access and enjoy video and CD-quality music on their phones. “Mobile data is not a dream; it’s not an option but a requirement,” said Len Lauer, head of a US communications company, Sprint PCS, at a 3G conference in Bangkok earlier this month. With 3G, you can forget about text messages telling you yesterday’s news; a 3G phone can receive video news programs, updated four times a day. Internet access will also be much quicker, making it easier to surf the Web on your phone than on your computer at home. Face-to-face video calls Don’t worry about getting lost. 3G phones offer map services so you can find a new restaurant just by pressing a few keys on your handset. However, the most impressive part of 3G technology is video calling. With live two-way video communication, you can have face-to-face talks with friends and family on your mobile phone.
- 86 -
Many European countries have already launched the service. In May 2000 the US Government issued five license to run 3G wireless services, while the first 3G phones arrived in Italy in March this year. International telecom companies can’t wait to sell 3G in China, the world’s largest mobile telecommunications market. But they will have to be patient. At the moment, China is busy testing its 3G-based technologies, networks and services. This will be followed by a trial period before the phones can finally hit the shops. “We need to create a pool of 3G customers before the large-scale commercial launch of the service,” said Fan Yunjun, marketing manager for Beijing Mobile. “We expect that the 3G licenses will be issued late next year.” Third-generation mobile phones (3G mobile phones) (1) a.
