The subject of the English Writing Prize was kept a 43 until the start of the exam so I could not 44 reading it. When the headmaster 45, I was looking out of the window.

Poverty, hard work, and even the fact that Father March was away with the Union armies could not down the spirits of Meg, Jo, Amy, and Maumee, as the March girls called their mother. The March sisters tried to be good but had their share of faults. Pretty Meg was often displeased with the schoolchildren she taught; boyish Jo was easy to become angry; golden-haired schoolgirl Amy liked to show up; but Beth, who kept the house, loved and gentle always.

3

The happy days passed and darkness came when a telegram arrived for Mrs. March. “Your husband is very ill,” it said, “come at once.” The girl tried to be brave when their mother left for the front. They waited and prayed. Little Beth got scarlet fever (猩红热) when she was taking care of the sick neighbor. She became very ill but began to recover by the time Maumee was back. When Father came home from the front and at that joyful Christmas dinner they were once more all together. Three years later the March girls had grown into young womanhood. Meg became Mrs. Brooke, and after a few family troubles got used to her new state happily. Jo had found pleasure in her literary efforts. Amy had grown into a young lady with a talent for design and an even greater one for society. But Beth had never fully regained her health, and her family watched her with love and anxiety. Amy was asked to go and stay in Europe with a relative of the Marches. Jo went to New York and became successful in her writing and had the satisfaction of seeing her work published there. But at home the bitterest blow was yet to fall. Beth had known for some time that she couldn’t live much longer to be with the family and in the spring time she died. News came from Europe that Amy and Laurie, the grandson of a wealthy neighbor, had planned to be married soon. Now Jo became ever more successful in her writing and got married to Professor Baer and soon afterwards founded a school for boys. And so the little women had grown up and lived happily with their children, enjoying the harvest of love and goodness that they had devoted all their lives to. 56. The members of the March family were Father March, Mrs. March and their _______. A. Four daughter’s B. five daughters C. son and four daughter’s D. son and five daughters 57. Who was the most successful in career (事业) among the March girls? A. Jo B. Beth C. Amy D. Meg 58. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A. The march Family B. The March Parents C. The March Girls D. The March Relatives 59. It can be inferred from the passage that the March family had ______. A. both happiness and sadness B. wealthy neighbors C. more girls than boys D. a lot of rich relatives B The first reality TV show in the world was called Expedition Robinson and it was shown in Sweden in 1997. Half the population of the country watched the final event and a new kind of TV program was born. Two years later in Holland, the first series of Big Brother was filmed. Again, it was a great success and the final program was watched by 15 million people. Now more than 20 countries around the world have Big Brother or Expedition Robinson on their TV screens. The ordinary people who take part in the programs are known by millions of people in

their own countries and reality TV has become big, big business. For the TV producers, reality TV is a dream comes true because many of the programs cost nothing to make. At some point, the television viewers are asked to telephone the program to vote or to apply to take part in the show. It is the cost of these telephone calls that pays for the shows. One of the most popular shows is Pop Idol. In the show a group of attractive young people are made into pop stars. TV viewers vote for their favorite person on the show. The winner makes a record and millions of copies of the record are sold. His or her pictures are published on the covers of magazines or on the front pages of newspapers, and then, they are quickly forgotten. But not everyone is happy about reality TV. In Portugal, two TV channels got into trouble because they showed too much of the personal lives of the people in the shows. In France, reality TV is called “rubbish TV” and the TV studios of Big Brother were attacked three times in one week. In Greece, Big Brother was described as “against human rights and civilization”. 61. Those who take part in the reality TV shows are usually _____. A. common people B. pop TV stars C. attractive people D. famous film stars 62. Who would pay for the cost of the reality TV shows according to the passage? A. TV producers who make reality TV shows B. TV actors who take part in reality TV shows. C. TV viewers who telephone reality TV shows D. TV companies which broadcast reality TV shows 63. It can be concluded from the passage that ______. A. everyone is happy about reality TV. B. reality TV will do well in many countries. C. all the people in Europe are in favor of reality TV D. reality TV will not be broadcast in any countries. C I II The opening ceremony of this famous yearly competition will begin at 11:30 a.m. There will be music groups, rappers and children’s chorus. 12:25 p.m. sees the introduction of the eaters who come from all over the world. At 12:40 p.m. the historic 12-minute all-you-can-eat competition will begin. The world record stands at over 50 hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes. Will anyone beat the record this year? Viewing is available on a first-come-first- served basis. Television crews are invited to use a two-tiered stage three meters from the main stage. The area in front of the main stage is kept for photographers and television Few periods in history are as exciting as the time when the Vikings (北欧海盗) were known --- and sometimes feared --throughout Scandinavia, the British Isles. Russia,all the Mediterranean, Africa and even America. Frojel is a family-based society, which aims to relive and describe the Vikings from a harbor---Frojel , on the Swedish island of Gotland. Frojel was one of the richest trading centers in the Viking world. The members of the society aim to recreate the clothing, weapons, tools, jewellery, games, food and furniture of the long-gone period. They want to enjoy an escape to a simpler , more relaxed time, 5 with like-minded people. They will also use the items they have made to relive that

64. According to Advertisement 1, the famous yearly competition is ______. A. a music competition B. an eating competition C. a cooking competition D. a pleasure-taking competition 65. People who come to watch the competition earliest may _______. A. gets the best watching position B. get the best food. C. watches whatever they want to D. take good pictures 66. The best title for Advertisement 2 would be _______. A. The Vikings B. Reliving of the Vikings C Frobel D. A Viking Reliving Society 67. From the advertisement we know that Frobel used to be ______. A. a Viking club. B. a family-based society C. a European island D. a trading center D In a recently published book, I came across some exercises with interesting names such as fishbone diagrams, lotus flowers and clustering. As I used these exercises in my classes, I noticed that students were interested. They said more and wrote more. They enjoyed expressing their ideas and sharing them in groups. They were no longer passively waiting for the bell, but actively taking part in the lesson. I find that creativity can act as a way to increase participation and improve fluency. Creativity has become a popular word in recent years. Scholars in arts, psychology, business, education and science are all working to get a deeper understanding of it. Robert J. Stemberg is a creativity specialist and Yale professor of psychology. He defines creativity as “the ability to produce work that is both new (original) and appropriate (applicable to the situation)”. This definition is useful, as we want our students to use language in a new way and to use it correctly and properly. Mot scholars say there are two types of creativity: big “C” creativity and small “c” creativity. Big “C” creativity refers to genius level thinking that results in artistic masterpieces and scientific breakthroughs. Small “c” creativity refers to everyday level thinking that can be used in any situation our emphasis is on the latter. While it goes without saying that any of our students could go on to be the next Picasso or Edison, our aim is to help students produce more ideas and use language in a new way. 68. The underlined words “waiting for the bell” in the first paragraph probably means______. A. longing for a phone calls B. hoping to have a bell

6

C. expecting the end of the class D. waiting to speak in the class 69. It can be inferred from the passage that the author thinks the exercises in the book were _____. A. popular B. useful C. scientific D. creative 70. When you use a familiar word in a new way, you are ________. A creative in the sense of big “C” creativity. B. creative in the sense of small “c” creativity... C. not creative in the sense of big “C” creativity... D. not creative in the sense of small “c” creativity. 71. The main purpose of the passage is to _________. A. show how useful the book is. B, explain what creativity C. discuss how one can be creative D. tell what reaching aims at E A new eight-kilometer road is under construction that links the port area with motorway system. It is expected to carry 20,000 trucks and cars a day, which greatly reduces the overcrowded traffic in the center of the city. As part of the project, two four-kilometer road tunnels are being built below the central area of the city, one for traffic to the north and the other for the traffic to the south. The two tunnels are about 20 meters below the surface and are 12 meters wide, providing for two lanes of traffic in each direction. In the upper part of the tunnel two air-conditioning pipes remove the waste gas of trucks and cars and keep the quality of air inside the tunnel. The lighting is at the top of the tunnel, practically at its highest point. There will also be electric signs at frequent intervals. They show traffic conditions ahead and can be seen clearly by drivers. The wall is made up of four main elements, which include a waterproofing covering and, on the inside of the tunnel, a concrete lining. Each tunnel is roughly round and the lower part of the tunnel is somewhat flat. The surface of the road lies on the base, which is made of concrete and steel. The drainage system, just below the road surface on one side, removes any extra liquid, particularly water. In the event of fire, the fire main, which is made of steel, pipes water to many fire hydrant stations at regular intervals along the length of the tunnel? The fire main is at the side of the tunnel and at the level of the road surface. Other systems in the tunnel will include emergency phones. 72. Each of the tunnels under construction is _____.

Su Hue is studying at Cambridge, UK. She has bought a bicycle and is worried about security (安全). Her friend, Kate, found this article and sent it to her. Introduction A lot of crime is against bicycles. About 150,000 bicycles are stolen every year and most are never found. You can prevent this happening by following a few careful steps. Basic Security Do not leave your bicycle in out-of-the-way places. Always lock your bicycle when you leave. Secure it to lampposts or trees. Take off smaller parts and take them with you, for example lights and saddles (车座). Locks Get a good lock. There are many different types in the shops. Buy one that has been tested against attack. Ask for a recommendation from a bike shop. Marking Security marking your bike can act a deterrent to a thief. It can also help the police find your bicycle. It should be clearly written and include your postcode and your house or flat number. This will provide a simple way to identify your bicycle. Registration There are a number of companies who will security mark your bicycle for you. They will then put your registration number and personal details on their computer database. Then if your bicycle is found it will be easy to contact you. Finally Keep a record of the bicycle yourself: its make, model and registration number. You can even take a photograph of it. This will prove the bicycle belongs to you. 56. Which part of the text gives you information on how to lock up your bicycle when you leave it? A. Locks. B. Marking. C. Registration. D. Basic Security. 57. The underlined phrase “act as a deterrent to a thief” means ______. A. helps you recognize your bike

15

B. help the police find your bicycle C. stops someone stealing your bicycle D. stops you worrying about your bike 58. The article advises you to keep a record of your bicycle _______. A. in the bike shop and your computer B. in the police station and a security company C. in a security company and your university D. by yourself and in a security company 59. The main purpose of this article is _________. A. to tell you what to do if your bicycle is stolen B. to suggest ways of keeping your bicycle safe C. to give you advice on where to buy a good lock D. to say why you shouldn’t keep your bicycle in a quiet place

Professor Barry Wellman of the University of Toronto in Canada has invented a term to describe the way many North Americans interact (互动) these days. The term is “networked individualism”. This concept is not easy to understand because the words seem to have opposite meanings. How can we be individuals (个体) and be networked at the same time? You need other people for networks. Here is what Professor Wellman means. Before the invention of the Internet and e-mail, our social networks included live interactions with relatives, neighbors, and friends. Some of the interaction was by phone, but it was still voice to voice, person to person, in real time. A recent research study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project showed that for a lot of people, electronic interaction through the computer has replaced this person-to- person interaction. However, a lot of people interviewed for the Pew study say that’s a good thing. Why? In the past, many people were worried that the Internet isolated (孤立) us and caused us to spend too much time in the imaginary world of the computer. But the Pew study discovered that the opposite is true. The Internet connects us with more real people than expected — helpful people who can give advice on careers, medical problems, raising children, and choosing a school or college. About 60 million Americans told Pew that the Internet plays an important role in helping them make major life decisions. Thanks to the computer, we are able to be alone and together with other people — at the same time! 60. The underlined phrase “networked individualism” probably means that by using computers people ________. A. stick to their own ways no matter what other people say B. has the rights and freedom to do things of their own interest

16

C. does things in their own ways and express opinions different from other people D. is able to keep to them but at the same time reach out to other people 61. According to the Pew study, what do many people rely on to make major life decisions? A. Networks. B. Friends. C. Phones. D. Parents. 62. It can be inferred from the Pew study that _______. A. people have been separated from each other by using computers B. the Internet makes people waste a lot of time and feel very lonely C. the Internet has become a tool for a new kind of social communication D. a lot of people regards the person-to-person communication as a good thing 63. Which would be the best title for this passage? A. We’re Alone on the Internet. B. We’re Communicating on the Internet. C. We’re Alone Together on the Internet. D. We’re in the Imaginary World of the Internet.

Thinking
? ? ? Some scientists claim that we humans are the only living things that are conscious (有意识的) — we alone are aware that we are thinking. No one knows how consciousness works — it is one of science’s last great mysteries. All your thoughts take place in the cerebrum (大脑皮质), which is at the top of

18

? ? ? ? ? ? ?

your brain, and different kinds of thought are linked to different areas, called association areas. Each half of the cerebrum has four rounded ends called lobes (脑叶) — two at the front (frontal and temporal lobes) and two at the back (occipital and parietal lobes). The frontal lobe is linked to your personality and it is where you have your bright ideas. The temporal lobe is where you hear and understand what people say to you. The occipital lobe is where you work out what your eyes see. The parietal lobe is where you record touch, heat and cold, and pain. The left half of the brain controls the right side of the body. The right half controls the left side. One half of the brain is always dominant (in charge). Usually, the left brain is dominant, which is why 90% of people are right-handed.

68. Which part of your cerebrum is most active when you are making a telephone call? A. The frontal lobe. B. The temporal lobe. C. The occipital lobe. D. The parietal lobe. 69. Which of the following statements is true? A. One’s personality has something to do with the frontal lobe. B. Bright ideas come from the parietal lobe. C. The occipital and temporal lobes are at the back of the cerebrum. D. The occipital lobe is in charge of sound. 70. From the passage, we know the reason why around 10% of people are left-handed is that ________. A. their frontal lobe is usually dominant B. their temporal lobe is usually dominant C. their right brain is usually dominant D. their left brain is usually dominant

Some people bring out the best in you in a way that you might never have fully realized on your own. My mom was one of those people. My father died when I was nine months old, making my mom a single mother at the age of eighteen. While I was growing up, we lived a very hard life. We had little money, but my mom gave me a lot of love. Each night, she sat me on her lap and spoke the words that would change my life, “Emmons, you are certain to be a great man and you can do anything in life if you work hard enough to get it.” At fourteen, I was hit by a car and the doctors said I would never walk again. Every day, my mother spoke to me in her gentle, loving voice, telling me that no matter what those doctors said, I

19

could walk again if I wanted to badly enough. She drove that message so deep into my heart that I finally believed her. A year later, I returned to school — walking on my own! When the Great Depression (大萧条) hit, my mom lost her job. Then I left school to support the both of us. At that moment, I was determined never to be poor again. Over the years, I experienced various levels of business success. But the real turning point occurred on a vacation I took with my wife and five kids in 1951. I was dissatisfied with the second-class hotels available for families and was angry that they charged an extra $2 for each child. That was too expensive for the average American family. I told my wife that I was going to open a motel (汽车旅馆) for families that would never charge extra for children. There were plenty of doubters at that time. Not surprisingly, mom was one of my strongest supporters. She worked behind the desk and even designed the room style. As in any business, we experienced a lot of challenges. But with my mother’s words deeply rooted in my soul, I never doubted we would succeed. Fifteen years later, we had the largest hotel system in the world — Holiday Inn. In 1979 my company had 1,759 inns in more than fifty countries with an income of $ 1 billion a year. You may not have started out life in the best situation. But if you can find a task in life worth working for and believe in yourself, nothing can stop you. 71. What Emmons’ mom often told him during his childhood was ______. A. caring B. moving C. encouraging D. interesting 72. According to the author, who played the most important role in making him walk back to school again? A. Doctors. B. Nurses. C. Friends. D. Mom. 73. What caused Emmons to start a motel by himself? A. His terrible experience in the hotel. B. His previous business success of various levels. C. His mom’s support. D. His wife’s suggestion. 74. Which of the following best describes Emmons’ mother? A. Modest, helpful, and hard-working. B. Loving, supportive and strong-willed. C. Careful, helpful and beautiful. D. Strict, sensitive and supportive. 75. Which of the following led to Emmons’ success according to the passage? A. Self-confidence, hard work, higher education and a poor family. B. Mom’s encouragement, clear goals, self-confidence and hard work. C. Clear goals, mom’s encouragement, a poor family and higher education. D. Mom’s encouragement, a poor family, higher education and opportunities.

Good afternoon, everyone. On the morning of April 29, 2007, from 10:00 to 11:00, hundreds of millions of students from primary, middle schools and universities all over China joined in a national student sports program. Eleven million students in Jiangsu took an active part in this program. The Ministry of Education calls on students to exercise for an hour every day, in the hope that they will have good health to work fifty years and enjoy the whole life. Personally, I think it a good idea for us senior 3 students to have daily exercise. Although we take an hour a day for exercise, it is well worth it. Taking exercise helps us build up our body

Based on my performance, I was 49 admitted and went on to 50 with the academy’s highest honors.” “After that, I established myself as the first full-time solo percussionist.

And if you don’t know for sure, it’s very likely that you can find out. There may be a watch on your wrist; there may be a clock on the wall, desk, or computer screen; or maybe you’re riding in a car that has a clock in the dashboard(仪表板). Even if you don’t have a timepiece of some sort nearby, your body keeps its own beat. Humans have an internal clock that regulates(调节) the beating of our heart, the pace of our breathing, the discharge(排出) of chemicals within our bloodstream, and many other bodily functions. Time is something from which we can’t escape. Even if we ignore it, it’s still going by, ticking away, second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour. So the main issue in using your time well is, “Who’s in charge?” We can allow time to slip by and let it be our enemy. Or we can take control of it and make it our ally. By taking control of how you spend your time, you’ll increase your chances of becoming a more successful student. Perhaps more importantly, the better you are at managing the time you devote to your studies, the more time you will have to spend on your outside interests.

29

The aim of time management is not to schedule every moment so we become slaves of a timetable that governs every waking moment of the day. Instead, the aim is to permit us to make informed choices as to how we use our time. Rather than letting the day go by, largely without our awareness, what we are going to discuss next can make us better able to control time for our own purposes. 56. The underlined word “ally” in Para. 3 most likely mean somebody or something that is ______. A. your slave and serves you B. your supporter and helps you B. under your control and obeys you D. under your influence and follows you 57. The author intends to tell us that time ______. A. could be regulated by a timepiece such as a clock or a watch B. could be managed by the internal clock of human bodies C. should be well managed for our own interest D. should be saved for outside interests 58. In the next part, the author would most probably discuss with you ______. A. how to keep up with the times B. how to make up for lost time C. how to have a good time D. how to make good use of time B We experience different forms of the Sun’s energy every day. We can see its light and feel its warmth. The Sun is the major source of energy for our planet. It causes the evaporation(蒸发) of water from the oceans and lakes. Sunlight also provides the energy used by green plants to make their own food. These green plants then provide food for all organisms(生物) on the Earth. Much of the energy that comes from the Sun never reaches the Earth’s surface. It is either reflected or absorbed by the gases in the upper atmosphere. Of the energy that reaches the lower atmosphere, 30% is reflected by clouds or the Earth’s surface. The remaining 70% warms the surface of the planet, causes water to evaporate, and provides energy for the water cycle and weather. Only a tiny part, approximately 0.023%, is actually used by green plants to produce food. Many gases found in the atmosphere actually reflect heat energy escaping from the Earth’s surface back to the Earth. These gases act like the glass of a greenhouse in that they allow energy from the Sun to enter but prevent energy from leaving. They are therefore called greenhouse gases. When sunlight strikes an object, some of the energy is absorbed and some is reflected. The amount reflected depends on the surface. For example, you’ve probably noticed how bright snow is when sunlight falls on it. Snow reflects most of the energy from the Sun, so it contributes to the low temperatures of winter.

30

Dark-colored surfaces, such as dark soil or forest, absorb more energy and help warm the surrounding air. 59. According to the passage, the root cause for weather changes on the Earth is ______. A. the atmosphere surrounding the Earth B. water from oceans and lakes C. energy from the Sun D. greenhouse gases in the sky 60. Only a small part of the Sun’s energy reaches the Earth’s surface because most of it is ______. A. absorbed by the clouds in the lower atmosphere B. reflected by the gases in the upper atmosphere C. lost in the upper and lower atmosphere D. used to evaporate water from the oceans and lakes 61. We learn from the passage that ______. A. all living things on the Earth depend on the Sun for their food B. a forest looks dark in winter because it absorbs solar energy C. only 0.023% of the energy from the Sun is made use of on the Earth D. greenhouse gases allow heat energy to escape from the Earth’s surface C Gallery Policies for Visitors to National Gallery of Art, Washington Vis itors must present all carried items for inspect ion upon entry.

College, career, and life itself got in the way. In fact, Jack moved clear across the country in pursuit of his dreams. There, in the rush of his busy life, Jack had little time to think about the past and often no time to spend with his wife and son. He was working on his future, and nothing could stop him. Over the phone, his mother told him, “Mr. Belter died last night. The funeral is Wednesday.” Memories flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly remembering his childhood days. “Jack, did you her me?” “Oh, sorry, Mom. Yes, I heard you. It’s been so long since I thought of him. I’m sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago,” Jack said. “Well, he didn’t forget you. Every time I saw him he’d ask how you were doing. He’d reminisce(回忆) about the many days you spent over ‘his side of the fence’ as he put it,” Mom told him. “I told that old house he lived in,” Jack said. “You know, Jack, after your father died, Mr. Belter stepped in to make sure you had a man’s influence in your life,” she said. “He’s the one who taught me carpentry. I wouldn’t be in this business if it weren’t for him. He spent a lot of time teaching me things he thought were important? Mom, I’ll be there for the funeral,” Jack said. Busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belter’s funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and most of his relatives had passed away. The night before the had to return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to see the old house next door one more time, which was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories. Every picture, every piece of furniture? Jack stopped

35

suddenly. “What’s wrong, Jack?” his Mom asked. “The box is gone,” he said. “What box?” Mom asked. “There was a small gold box that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a thousand times what was inside. All he’d ever tell me was ‘the thing I value most’,” Jack said. It was gone. Everything about the house was exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box; He figured someone from the Belter family had taken it. “Now, I’ll never know what was so valuable to him,” Jack said sadly. Returning to his office the next day, he found a package on his desk. The return address caught his attention. “Mr. Harold Belter” it read. Jack tore open the package. There inside was the gold box and an envelope. Jack’s hands shook as he read the note inside. “Upon my death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It’s the thing I valued most in my life.” A small key was taped to the letter. His heart racing, and tears filling his eyes, Jack carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold pocket watch. Running his fingers slowly over the fine cover, he opened it. Inside he found these words carved: “Jack Thanks for your time! Harold Belter.” “Oh, My God! This is the thing he valued most?” Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then called his assistant and cleared his appointments for the next two days. “Why?” his assistant asked. 66. Why did Jack think Mr. Belter died years ago? A. College and career prevented him from remembering Mr. Blazer. B. Jack was too busy with his business and family to think about Mr. Belter. C. Jack was too busy realizing his dreams to think about Mr. Belter. D. His present busy life washed away his childhood memories. 67. Jack’s mother told him on the phone about Mr. Belter EXCEPT that ______. A. Mr. Belter often asked how Jack was doing B. Mr. Belter’s funeral would take place on Wednesday C. Mr. Belter had asked for Jack’s mailing address D. Mr. Belter had pleasant memories of their time together 68. Why did Belter send Jack his gold watch? A. Because he was grateful for Jack’s time with him. B. Because he had no children or relatives.

36

C. Because he thought he had to keep his word. D. Because Jack had always wanted it during his childhood. 69. Why did Jack say he needed some time to spend with his son? A.

He came to realize the importance of the time with his family. 70. Which of the following is the most suitable title for this passage? A. The Good Old Times B. What He Valued Most C.

Scientific investigations(调查) are almost always carried out by teams of people working together. Ideas are shared, experiments are designed, data are analyzed, and results are evaluated and shared with other investigators. Group work is necessary, and is usually more productive than working alone. Several times throughout the year you may be asked to work with one or more of your classmates. Whatever the task your group is assigned, a few rules need to be followed to ensure a productive and successful experience. What comes first is to keep an open mind, because everyone’s ideas deserve consideration and each group member can make his or her own contribution. Secondly, it makes a job easier to divide the group task among all group members. Choose a role on the team that is best suited to your particular strengths. Thirdly, always work together, take turns, and encourage each other by listening, clarifying, and trusting one another. Mutual support and trust often make a great difference. Activities like investigations are most effective when done by small groups. Here are some more suggestions for effective team performance during these activities: Make sure each group member understands and agrees to the task given to him or her, and everyone knows exactly when, why and what to do take turns doing various tasks during similar and repeated activities; be aware of where other group members are and what they are doing so as to ensure safety; be responsible for your own learning, though it is by no means unwise to compare your observations with those of other group members. When there is research to be done, divide the topic into several areas, and this can explore the issue in a very detailed way. You are encouraged to keep records

37

of the sources used by each person, which helps you trace back to the origin of the problems that may happen unexpectedly. A format for exchanging information (e.g., photocopies of notes, oral discussion, etc.) is also important, for a well-chosen method not only strengthens what you present but also makes yourself easily understood. When the time comes to make a decision and take a position on an issue, allow for the contributions of each member of the group. Most important of all, it is always wise to make decisions by compromise and agreement. After you’ve completed a task with your team, make an evaluation of the team’s effectiveness — the strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and challenges.

Good listening can always show respect, promote understanding, and improve interpersonal relationship. Many people suggest that parents should listen more to their children, so they will understand them better, and find it easy to narrow the generation gap; teachers should listen more to their students, then they can meet their needs better, and

42

place themselves in a good relationship with their students; students should listen more to their classmates, thus they will help and learn from each other, and a friendship is likely to be formed. What I want to stress is that each of us should listen more to others. Show your respect and never stop others till they finish their talk; show you are interested by a supportive silence or a knowing smile; be open-minded to different opinions even though you don’t like them. In a word, good listening can really enable us to get closer to each other. (151) Thank you for your listening!

The requirements for high school graduation have just changed in my community. As a result, all students must 36 sixty hours of service learning, 37 they will not receive a diploma. Service learning is academic learning that also helps the c ommunity. 38 of service learning include cleaning up a polluted river, working in a soup kitchen, or tutoring a student. 39 a service experience, students mus t keep a journal(日志)and then write a 40 about what they have learned. Supporters claim that there are many 41 of service learning. Perhaps most imp ortantly, students are forced to think 42 their own interests and become 4 3 of the needs of others. Students are also able to learn real-life skills that 4 4 responsibility, problem-solving, and working as part of a team. 45, students c an explore possible careers 46 service learning. For example, if a student wonders what teaching is like, he or she can choose to work in an elementary school classroom a few afternoons each month. 47 ther e are many benefits, opponents (反对者) 48 problems with the new requiremen t. First, they 49 that the main reason students go to school is to learn core su bjects and skills. Because service learning is time-consuming, students spend 50 ti mes studying the core subjects. Second, they believe that forcing students to work without 51 goes against the law. By requiring service, the school takes away a n individual's freedom to choose. In my view, service learning is a great way to 52 to the community, learn new skills, and explore different careers. 53 , I don’t believe you should force peop le to help others —the 54 to help must come from the heart. I think the best 55 is one that gives students choices: a student should be able to choose six ty hours of independent study or sixty hours of service.

When groups of men and women watch a movie toget her, the men usually end up telling the women to shut up. Men can either talk or watch the screen -- they can’t do both -- and they don’t understand that women can. Besides, women consider that the point of all getting together is to have a good time and develop relationships -- not just to sit there like couch potatoes sta ring at the screen. During the ad breaks, a man often asks a woman to explain the plot and tell him where the relationship between the characters is going. He is unable, unlike wom en, to read the subtle body language signals that reveal how the characters are f eeling emotionally. Since women originally spent their days with the other women and children in the group, they developed the ability to communicate successfully i n order to maintain relationships. For a woman, speech continues to have such a

51

clear purpose: to build relationships and make friends. For men, to talk is to relat e the facts. Men see the telephone as a communication tool for sending facts and information to other people, but a woman sees it as a means of bonding. A woman can spen d two weeks on vacation with her girlfriend and, when she returns home, telepho ne the same girlfriend and talk for another two hours. There is no convincing evidence that social conditioning, the fact that girls' mother s talked them more, is the reason why girls talk more than boys. Psychiatrist Dr Michael Lewis, author Social Behavior and Language Acquisition, conducted experim ents that found mothers talked to and looked at, baby girls more often than baby boys. Scientific evidence shows parents res the brain bias of their children. Since a girl’s brain is better organized to send and receive speech, we therefore talk to them more. Consequently, mothers who try to talk to their sons are usually pointe d to receive only short grunts in reply. 56. While watching TV with others, women usually talk a lot because they ______ __. A. are afraid of awkward silence with their families and friends B. can both talk and watch the screen at the same time C. thinks they can have a good time and develop relationships D. has to explain the plot and body language to their husbands 57. After a vacation with her girlfriend, a woman would talk to her again on the phone for hours in order to ________. A. experience the happy time again C. recommend her a new scenic spot B. keep a close tie with her D. remind her of something forgotten

58. What does the author want to tell us most? A. Women’s brains are better organized for language and communication

52

B. Women love to talk because they are more sociable than men. C. Men do not like talking because they rely more on facts. D. Social conditioning is not the reason why women love talking. 59. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A. Women Are Socially Trained to Talk C. Women Love to Talk B. Talking Maintains Relationships D. Men Talk Differently from Women

B It was the first mow of winter —an exciting day for every, child but not for most tether. Up until now, l had been able to dress myself for recess(课间休息), but t oday I would need some help. Miss Finlayson, my kindergarten teacher at Princess Elizabeth School near Hamilton, Ontario, had been through first snow days ,tony times in her long career, but I think struggled still remember this one. I managed to get into my wool snow pants. But I straggled with my jacket becau se it didn’t fit well. It was a hand-me-down from my brother, and it made me wo nder why I had to wear his ugly clothes. At least my hat and matching scarf wer e mine, and they were quite pretty. Finally it was time to have Miss Finlayson hel p me with my boots. In her calm, motherly voice she said, "By the end of winter, you will be able to put on own boots. “ I didn’t realize at the time that this was more a statement of hope than of confidence. I handed her my boots and stuck out my foot. Like most children, I expected the adult to do and the work. After mush wiggling and pushing, she managed to get first one into place and then, with a sigh, worked the second one on too.

A.Single. D Have you ever noticed the color of the water in a river or stream after a heavy r ainfall? What do you think caused this change in color? It is soil that has been w ashed into the river from the riverbank or from t}le nearby fields. Components of Soft Soil is made up of a number of layers(层), each having its own distinctive color and texture.The upper layer is known as the litter.It acts like a blanket.limitin g temperature changes and reducing water loss.The topsoil layer is made up of s mall particles of rock mixed with rotten plant and animal matter called humus(腐 B.Weekly. C.Off-peak Daily. D.Ten—trip Saver.

殖质),which is black and gives the topsoil its dark color.This layer is usually rich in nutrients,oxygen,and water.Below the topsoil is the subsoil,a layer that co ntains more stones mixed with only small amounts of organic matter. This layer is lighter in color because of the lack of humus.Beneath the soil lies a layer of bedr ock. Soil forms from the bottom up.Over time bedrock is attacked by rain, wind,fr ost, and snow.It is gradually broken down into smaller particles in a process call ed weathering.Plants begin to grow,and rotten materials enrich the topsoil.Most of the soil in Eastern Canada.for example.Was formed from weathered rock tha t was exposed when the ice disappeared l2.000 years ag0. Water beneath the Soil Surface water collects and flows above the ground in lakes. ponds. and rivers. O nce in the soil or rock,it is called groundwater.Gravity pulls groundwater through the soil in a process called percolation(渗透).Eventually the water reaches a laye r called the water table.Under this is bedrock through which water cannot percol ate. As water percolates downward,it dissolves organic matter and minerals from th e soil and carries them to deeper layers.This causes a serious problem because p lants require these nutrients for growth. Soil pH Soil can be acidic.neutral.or basic.The pH of the soil is determined by the n ature of the rock from which it was formed.and by the nature of t}le plants that grow and rot in i t. The acidity of rain and snow can lower the pH of the groundwater that enters the soil.By burning fossil fuels such as coal,oil and gasoline,humans have bee n contributing to higher levels of acidity in many soils.When fossil fuels are burne d.gases are released into the air and then fall back to earth as acid rain.Acid s oil increases 出 e problem of carrying nutrients to lower soil levels.As nutrients are removed,soil is less fertile.Plants grow more slowly in acidic soil,and also beco me easily attacked by diseases.

67.The layer of soil that provides necessary nutrients for plant growth is called. A.1itter B.topsoil C.humus D.Subsoil

68.According to the text.Which of the following is NOT true? A.Soil forms from weathered rock on the earth surface. B.The deeper layer of soil is darker in color than t}le surface soil. C.Air pollution is partially responsible for acid soil. D.Groundwater tends to carry away nutrients for plant growth. 69.We can infer from the passage that the water table lies A.Between the topsoil layer and the subsoil layer B.In the subsoil layer above bedrock C.Between the subsoil layer and bedrock D.In the bedrock layer beneath the subsoil 70.The underlined word “dissolve” is used to express the idea that organic matter and minerals from soil are .

Communication Principles How you see yourself can make a great difference in how you communicate. “Ever y individual exists in a continually changing world of experience of which he(or sh e)is the center”.Many communication scholars and social scientists believe that pe ople are products of how others treat them and of the messages others send the m.But every day we experience the centrality of our selves in communication.A student.for instance,may describe a conflict with a teacher as unfair treatment: “I know my teacher doesn’t like the fact that I don’t agree with his opinions. and that’s why he gave me such a poor grade in that class.”The teacher might say t he opposite. Each person may believe that he is correct and that the other person’ s view is wrong. The concept of serf originates in communication. Through verbal and nonverbal symbols, a child learns to accept roles in response to the expectations of others. Y ou establish self-image。The sort of person you believe you are,by how others th ink of you.Positive,negative,and neutral messages that you receive from others all play a role in determining who you are.Communication itself is probably best understood as a dialogue process.Our understanding of communication comes fro m our interactions with other people.In a more obvious way.communication invo lves others in the sense that a competent communicator considers what the other person needs and expects when selecting messages to share.So,the communica tion begins with the self,as defined largely by others,and involves others,as def ined largely by the self. Communication Occurs almost every minute of your life.If you are not commu nicating with yourself(thinking,planning,reacting to the world around you),you are observing others and drawing inferences from their behavior.Even if the other person did not intend a message for you.you gather observations and draw spec ific conclusions.A person yawns and you believe that person is bored with your m essage.A second person looks away from you and you conclude that person is no t listening to you. third person smiles(perhaps because of a memory of a joke h A e heard recently) and you believe that he is attracted to you.We are continually picking up meanings from others’ behaviors and we are constantly providing behav iors that have communicative value for them. More often than not, you may have hurt someone accidentally and you may have tried to explain that you did not mean that. You may have told the other person

59

that you were sorry for your statement.You may have made a joke out of your r ude statement.Nonetheless,your comment remains both in the mind of the other person and in your own mind.You cannot go back in time and erase your mess ages to others. Communication cannot be reversed(倒退), nor can it be repeated. W hen you tried to re—create the atmosphere,the conversation,and the setting,no thing seemed right.Your second experience with a similar setting and person mad e far different results.

Paragraph 0utline Supporting Details Communication begins with the self ●we are always(71) ▲ in communication with others. Communication ●Experiences of others help children learn to accept roles. (72) ▲ others ●Messages from others help you(73) ▲ who you are. ●Needs and(74) ▲ of others should be considered. ●We are communicating with ourselves by thinking,planning and reacting to the outside world. ●We are always(76) ▲ other people by observing even if they do not intend any message for you. ●We are constantly collecting meanings from others’(77) ▲ . ●We are constantly(78) ▲ meanings by what we do. ●People are somewhat products of others’ treatment and message s.

The mouse is a most effective device used by people to communicate with a com puter. For most people, it’s almost impossible to operate a computer without a mouse, le t alone surf the Internet. A well-chosen mouse is really handy, flexible and conven ient in controlling the screen. With the functions of inserting, deleting, moving and copying, it enables us to edit test, browse web page and download what we wan t. It can even bring us a flood of music, movies and PC games. Just imagine, all this can be done with a cute mouse. A convenient tool can certainly make our work easier, but it doesn’t always help i n a positive way. Too much ready information on our fingertips leaves little room for knowledge pursuing. Too many ready answers make us less excited in finding truth. Relying too much on mouse clicking makes us lazier and less creative both mentally and physically. (153 words

第三部分:阅读理解(共 15 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 30 分) 请认真阅读下列短文,从短文后各题所给的 A、 C、 四个选项中, B、 D 选出最佳选项, 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Usually, when your teacher asks a question, there is only one correct answer. But there is one question that has millions of current answers. That question is “What’s your name?” Everyone gives a different answer, but everyone is correct. Have you ever wondered about people’s names? Where do they come from? What do they

71

mean? People’s first names, or given names, are chosen by their parents. Sometimes the name of a grandparent or other member of the family is used. Some parents choose the name of a well-known person. A boy could be named George Washington Smith; a girl could be named Helen Keller Jones. Some people give their children names that mean good things. Clara means “bright”; Beatrice means “one who gives happiness”; Donald means “world ruler”; Leonard means “as brave as a lion”. The earliest last names, or surnames, were taken from place names. A family with the name Brook or Brooks probably lived near brook(小溪); someone who was called Longstreet probably lived on a long, paved road. The Greenwood family lived in or near a leafy forest. Other early surnames came from people’s occupations. The most common occupational name is Smith, which means a person who makes things with iron or other metals. In the past, smiths were very important workers in every town and village. Some other occupational names are: Carter — a person who owned or drove a cart; Potter —a person who made pots and pans. The ancestors of the Baker family probably baked bread for their neighbors in their native village. The Carpenter’s great-great-great-grandfather probably built houses and furniture. Sometimes people were known for the color of their hair or skin, or their size, or their special abilities. When there were two men who were named John in the same village, the John with the gray hair probably became John Gray. Or the John was very tall could call himself John Tallman. John Fish was probably an excellent swimmer and John Lightfoot was probably a fast runner or a good dancer. Some family names were made by adding something to the father’s name. English-speaking people added –s or –son. The Johnsons are descendants of John; the Roberts

72

family’s ancestor was Robert. Irish and Scottish people added Mac or Mc or O. Perhaps all of the MacDonnell’s and the McDonnell’s and the O’Donnell’s are descendants of the same Donnell. 56. Which of the following aspects do the surnames in the passage NOT cover? A. Places where people lived. C. Talents that people possessed. B. People’s characters. D. People’s occupations.

57. According to the passage, the ancestors of the Potter family most probably _______. A. owned or drove a cart C. made kitchen tools or contains B. made things with metals D. built houses and furniture

58. Suppose and English couple whose ancestors lived near a leafy forest wanted their new-born son to become a world leader, the baby might be named _______. A. Beatrice Smith C. George Longstreet B. Leonard Carter D. Donald Greenwood

59. The underlined word “descendants” in the last paragraph means a person’s _____ A. later generation’s C. colleagues and partners B. friends and relatives D. later sponsors B It is reported that conservation groups in North America have been arguing about the benefits and dangers of wolves. Some groups believe wolves should be killed. Other people believe wolves Must be protected so that they will not disappear from the wilderness(荒野) For Killing Wolves In Alaska,the wolf almost disappeared a few years ago,because hunters were killing hundreds 0f them for sport .However.1aws were established to protect the wolves from sportsmen and

73

people who catch the animals for their fur.So the waif population has greatly increased. Now there are so many wolves that they are destroy yang their own food supply. A wolf naturally eats animals in the deer family. People in the wilderness also hunt deer for food. Many of the animals have been destroyed by the very cold winters recently and by changes in the wilderness plant life.When the deer can’t find enough food,they die. If the wolves continue to kill large numbers of deer,their prey(猎物)will disappear some day.And the wolves will.too.So we must change the cycle of life in the wilderness to balance the ecology.If we killed more wolves,we would save them and their prey from dying out.We’d also save some farm animals. In another northern state,wolves attack cows and chickens for food.Farmers want the government to send biologists to study the problem.They believe it necessary to kill wolves in some areas and to protect them in places where there is a small waif population. Against Killing Wolves If you had lived long ago,you would have heard many different stories about the dangerous wolf.According to most stories,hungry wolves often kill people for food.Even today,the stories of the“big bad waif'"will not disappear. But the fact is wolves are afraid of people.And they seldom travel in areas where there is a human smell.When wolves eat other animals,they usually kill the very young.Or the sick and Injured .The strongest survive .No kind of animal would have survived therough the centuries if the weak members had lived.And has always been a law of nature Although some people say it is good sense to kill wolves,we say it is nonsense! Researchers have found wolves and their prey living in balance.The wolves keep the deer population from

74

becoming too large, and that keeps a balance in the wilderness plant life. The real problem is that the areas where wolves can live are being used be people.Even if wilderness land is not used directly for human needs.the wolves can’t always find enough food .So they travel to the nearest source, which is often a farm.Then there is danger.The“big bad wolf”has arrived!

D Imagine, day, one getting out of bed in Beijing and being at your office in Shanghai in only a couple of hours,and then,after a full day of work,going back home to Beijing and having dinner there. Sounds unusual,doesn't it? But it's not that unrealistic,with the development of China’s high—speed railway system. And that’ not a11. s China has an even greater high—speed railway plan—to connect the country with Southeast Asia,and eventually Eastern Europe. China is negotiating to extend its own high· -speed railway network to up to 17 countries in 1 0 to 15 years,eventually reaching London and Singapore. China has proposed three such projects.The first would possibly connect Kunming with Singapore via Vietnam and Malaysia. Another could start in Urumqi and go through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan,and possibly to Germany.The third would start in the northeast and go north through Russia and then into Western Europe. If China’s plan for the high-speed railway goes forward,people could zip over from London to Bailing in under two days. The new system would still follow China’s high—speed railway standard.And the trains

78

would be able to go 346 kilometers an hour,almost as fast as some airplanes. China’s bullet train(高速客车),the one connecting Wuhan to Guangzhou,already has the World’s fastest average speed.It covers 1,069 kilometers in about three hours. Of course,there are some technical challenges to overcome.There are so many issues that need to be settled,such as safety,rail gauge(轨距),maintenance of railway tracks.So,it’s important to pay attention to every detail. But the key issue is really money.China is already spending hundreds of billions of Yuan on domestic railway expansion. China prefers that the other countries pay in natural resources rat err than with capital investment.Resources from those countries could stream into China to sustain development. It’11 be a win-win project. For other countries,the railway network will definitely create more opportunities for business,tourism and so on,not to mention the better communication among those counties. For China,such a project would not only connect it with the rest of Asia and bring some much-needed resources,but would also help develop China’s far west.We foresee that in the coming decades, millions of people will migrate to the western regions, where the land is empty and resources unused. With high-speed trains, people will set up factories and business centers in the west once and for a11.And they’11 trade with Central Asian and Eastern European countries. 67.China’s new high-speed railway plan will be a win-win project because A.China will get much-needed resources and develop its western regions B.China and the countries involved will benefit from the project in various ways C.China will develop its railway system and communication with other countries D. the foreign countries involved will develop their railway transportation,business and .

One funny idea is that animals might have a built-in compass(指南针). Our earth itself is a big magnet(磁体).So a little magnetic needle that swings freely lines itself with the big earth magnet to point north and south. When people discoverer d that idea about thousand years ago and invented the compass,it allowed sailors to navigate (航海)on ocean voyages, even under Cloudy skies.

80

Actually the idea of the living compass came just from observing animals in nature. Many birds migrate twice a year between their summer homes and winter homes. Some of them fly for thousands of kilometers and mostly at night.Experiments have shown that some birds can recognize star patterns. they can keep on course even under cloudy skies. But How can they do that? A common bird that does not migrate but is great at finding its way home is the homing pigeon.Not all pigeons can find their way home.Those that can are very good at it,and they have been widely studied. One interesting experiment was to attach little magnets to the birds’ heads to block their magnetic sense—just as a loud radio can keep you from hearing a call to dinner.On sunny days, that did not fool the pigeons.Evidently they can use the sun to tell which way they are going.But on cloudy days,the pigeons with magnets could not find their way.It was as if the magnets had blocked their magnetic sense. Similar experiments with the same kind of results were done with honeybees. These insects also seem to have a special sense to direction. In spite of the experiments , the idea of an animal compass seemed pretty extraordinary.How Would an animal get the magnetic stuff for a compass? An answer came from an unexpected source.A scientist was studying bacteria that live in the mud of ponds and marshes.He found accidentally little rod-like bacteria that all swam together in one direction—north. Further study showed that each little bacterium had a chain of dense particles inside,which proved magnetic.The bacteria had made themselves into little magnets that could line up with

81

the earth’s magnet. The big news was that a living thing,even a simple bacterium,can make magnetite.That led To a search to see whether animals might have it... By using a special instrument called magnetometer, scientists were able to find magnetite in bees and birds, even in fish. each and In animal,except for the bee.the magnetic stuff was always in or closer to the brain. Thus.the idea of a built—in animal compass began to seem reasonable.

第三部分:阅读理解(共 15 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 30 分) 请认真阅读下列短文,从短文后各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中,选 出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A We know the famous ones—the Thomas Edisons and the Alexander Graham Bells —but what about the less famous inventors? What about the people who invented the traffic light and the windshield wiper(雨刮器)? Shouldn’t we know who they are? Joan Mclean think so. In fact, Mclean, a professor of physics at Mountain University in Range, feels so strongly about this matter that she’s developed a course on the topic. In addition to learning “who”invented”what”, however, Mclean also likes her students to learn the answers to the”why” and ”how” questions. According to Mclean,”When students learn the answers to these questions, they are better prepared to recognize opportunities for inventing and more motivated to give inventing a try.” So,just what is the story behind the windshield wiper? Well,Mary Anderson came up with the idea in 1902 after a visit to Mew York City.The day was cold and stormy, but Anderson still wanted to see the sights ,so she jumped aboard a streetcar. Noticing that the driver was struggling to see through the snow covering the winshield,she found hersefe

94

wondering why there couldn’t be a buolt-in devic for cleaing the window. Still wondering about this when she returned home to Birmingham, Alabama, Anderson started drafting out solutions. One of her ideas, a lever(操 作杆)on the inside of a vehicle that would contral an arm on the outside, became the first windshield wiper. Today we benefit from countless inventions and innovations,It’s hard to imagine driving without Garrett A.Morgan’s traffic light. It’s equally impossible to picture a world without Katherine J.Blodgett’s innovation that makes glass invisible, Can you picture life without clear windows and eyeglasses? 56.By mentionong “traffic light”and “windshield wiper”,the author indicates that countless inventions are A.beneficial,because their inventors are famous B. beneficial,though their inventors are less famous .

C.not useful, because their inventors are less famous D. not useful, though their inventors are famous

57.Professor Joan McLean’s course aims to_____. A. add colour and variety to students’ campus life B. inform students of the windshield wiper’s invention C. carry out the requirements by Mountain University D. pre[are students to try theie own invention 58. Tommy Lee’ invention of the unbreakable umbrella was _________. s A. not eventually accepted by the umbrella producer B. inspired by the story behind the windshield wiper C. due to his dream of being caught in a rainstorm

95

D. not related to Professor Joan McLean’s lectures 59. Which 0f the following can best serve as the title of this passage? A B C D How to Help Students to Sell Their Inventions to Producers? How to Design a Built-in Dervice for Cleaning the Window? Shouldn’t We Know Who Inventd the Windshield Wiper? Shouldn’t We Develop Invention Courses in Universities?

96

60.Which of the following is discouraged by the Friends organization? A.To bulid massive complexes for public amusement.

97

B.To prevent possible damages to the National Park. C.To help protect and improve the Park for all to enjoy. D.To sponsor publicationsand projects in local school. 61. One of thebenefits for members of Friends is to A. have Friends’goods free of charge B. visit any place not open to the public C.take part in work parties if they want to D.give talks in their fields on current issues 62.The purpose of this poster is to invite more people to_______________. A. raise money for the Friends organization B. join the Friends organization and be members of it C. work as managers for Pembroke shire National Park D. enjoy the landscape of Pembroke shire National Park C According to the US government, wind farms off the Pacific coast could produce 900 gig watts of electricity every year.Unfortunately,the water there is far too deep for even the tallest windmills(see picture)to touch bottom. An experiment under way off the coast of Norway,however,could help put them anywhere. The project, called Hywind,is the world’s first large-scale deepwater wind turbine(涡轮发电机).Although it uses a fairly standard .

98

152-ton,2.3-megawatt

turbine,Hywind

represents totally new technology. The turbine will be fixed 213 feet above the water on a floating spar(see picture),a technology Hywind’s creator,the Norwegian company StatoilHydro,has developed recently. The steel spar, which is filled with stones and goes 328 feet below the sea surface, will be tied to the ocean floor by three cable(缆索);these will keep the spar stable and prevent the turbine from moving up and down in the waves.Hywind’s stability(稳定性)in the cold and rough sea would prove that even the deepest corners of the ocean are suitable for wind power. If all goes according to plan, the turbine will start producing electricity six miles off the coast of southwestern Norway as early as September. To produce electricity on a large scale, a commercial wind farm will have to use bigger turbines than Hywind does, but it’s difficult enough to balance such a large turbine so high on a floating spar in the middle of the ocean. To make that turbine heavier, the whole spar’s to design a new kind of wind turbine, one whose gearbox(变速箱) sits at sea level rather than behind the blades (see picture ) Hywind is a test run, but the benefits for perfecting floating wind-farm technology could be extremely large. Out at sea, the wind is

99

often stronger and steadier than close to shore, where all existing offshore windmills are planted. Deep-sea farms are invisible from land, which helps overcome the windmill-as-eyesore objection. If the technology catches on, it will open up vast areas of the planet’s surface to one of the best low-carbon power sources available. 63. The Hywind project uses totally new technology to ensure the stability of _______. A. the cables which tie the spar to the ocean floor B. the spar which is floating in deep-sea water C. the blades driven by strong and steady sea wind D. the stones filled in the spar below the sea surface 64. To balance a bigger turbine high on a flatting spar, a new type of turbine is to be designed with its gearbox sitting ____________. A. on the sea floor C. at sea level B. on the spar top D. behind the blades

65. Wide applications of deepwater wind power technology can ____________. A. solve the technical problems of deepwater windmills B. make financial profits by producing more turbines C. settle the arguments about environmental problems D. explore low-carbon power resources available at sea D Shay asked, “Do you think they’ll let me play?” Shay’s father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son, mentally and physically

100

disabled, were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence. Shay’s father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay could play, not expecting much. The boy looked around and said, “We’re losing by six runs (分) and the game is in the eighth inning (局).I guess he can be on our team and we’ll try to put him in to bat in the final inning. Shay struggled over to the team’s bench and put on a team shirt with a broad smile and his father had a small tear in his eye and warmth in heart. The boys saw the father’s joy at his son being accepted. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay’s team scored a few runs but was still behind by three. In the top of the final inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously joyful just to be in the game and on the field. In the bottom of the final inning, Shay’s team scored again. Now, Shay was scheduled to be next at bat. Would they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game? Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was almost impossible. The first pitch (投) came and Shay missed. The pitcher again again took a few steps forward to throw the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in , Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher. The pitcher could have easily thrown he ball to the first baseman and Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game .Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the head of the

awkwardly ran towards second.By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the smallest guy on their team,who had a chance to be the hero for his team fir the first time,could have thrown the ball to the second baseman, but he understood the pitcher’s intentions and he too intentionally

threw the ball high and far over the third baseman’s head. All were screaming, Shay, “ Shay, Shay, the way Shay.” Shay reached all third base when one opposing player ran to help him and shouted, “Shay, run to third.” As Shay rounded third, all were on their feet, crying, “Shay, run home! ”Shay ran to home, stepped on the home base and was cheered as the hero who the who won the game for his team. That day, the boys from both teams helped bring a piece true love and humanity into this world. Shay didn’t make it to another summer and died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making his father so happy and coming home and seeing his mother tearfully hug her little hero of the day! 66.Not expecting much, Shay’s father still asked the boy if Shay could play, mainly because the father _________.

Why Difficult? When we wrong someone we know, even not intentionally, we are generally expected to apologize so as to improve the situation. But when we’re acting as leaders, the circumstances are different. The act of apology is carried out not merely at the level of the individual but also at the level of the institution. It is a performance in which every expression matters and every word becomes part of the public record. Refusing to apologize can be smart, or it can be stupid. So, readiness to apologize can be seen as a sign of strong character or as a sign of weakness. A successful apology can turn hate into personal and organizational harmony—while an apology that is too little, too late, or too obviously strategic can bring on individual and institutional ruin. What, then, is to be done? How can leaders decide if and when to apologize publicly? Why Now? The question of whether leaders should apologize publicly has never been more urgent. During the last decade or so, the United States in particular has developed an apology culture—apologies of all kinds and

104

for all sorts of wrongdoings are made far more frequently than before. More newspaper writers have written about the growing importance of public apologies. More articles, cartoons, advice columns, and radio and television programs have similarly dealt with the subject of private apologies. Why Bother? Why do we apologize? Why do we ever put ourselves in situations likely to be difficult, embarrassing, and even risky? Leaders who apologize publicly could be an easy target. They are expected to appear strong and capable. And whenever they make public statements of any kind, their individual and institutional reputations are in danger. Clearly, then, leaders should not apologize often or lightly. For a leader to express apology, there needs to be a good, strong reason. Leaders will publicly apologize if and when they think the costs of doing so are lower than the costs of not doing so. Why Refuse? Why is it that leaders so often refuse to apologize, even when a public apology seems to be in order? Their reasons can be individual or institutional. Because leaders are public figures, their apologies are likely to be personally uncomfortable and even professionally risky. Leaders may also be afraid that admission of a mistake will damage or destroy the organization for which they are responsible. There can be good reasons for hanging tough in tough situations, as we shall see, but it is a high-risk strategy.

Deputy Agriculture Secretary Kathleen Kerrigan sees an epidemic (流行病) sweeping across America’s farmland. It has little to do with the usual challenges, such as flood, rising fuel prices And crop-eating insects. The country’s farmers are getting older, and there are fewer people standing in line to take their place. National agricultural census (普查) figures show that the fastest-growing group of farmers is the part over 65. Kerrigan is afraid the average age will be even higher when the 2012 statistics are completed. Kerrigan, a former college professor, is making stops at universities across the country in hopes of encouraging more students to think about careers in agriculture. Aside from trying to stop the graying of America’s farmers, her work is made tougher by a recent blog posting that put agriculture at No. 1 on a list of “useless” college degrees. Top federal agriculture officials are talking about the posting, and it has the attention of agricultural organizations across the country. “There couldn’t be anything that’s more incorrect,” Kerrigan said. “We know that there aren’t enough qualified graduates to fill the jobs that are out there in American agriculture.” In addition, a growing world population that some experts predict will require 70% more food Production by 2050, she said. “I truly believe we’re at a golden age of agriculture. Global demand is at an all-time record High, and global supplies are at all-time record lows,” said Matt Rush, director of the Texas Farm Bureau. “Production costs are going to be valuable enough that younger people are going to have the opportunity to be involved in agriculture.” The Department of Agriculture has programs aimed at developing more farmers and at increasing interest in locally grown food. The National Young Farmers’ Coalition has also been pushing for state and federal policy changes to make it easier for new farmers.

Ryan Best, president of Future Farmers of America, has been living out of a suitcase, traveling The country and visiting with high school students about careers in agriculture. The 21-year-old Best Hopes his message—that this is a new time in agriculture—will motivate the next generation to turn Around the statistics. “Never before have we had the innovations (创新) in technology which have Led to agriculture in this country being the most efficient it has ever been,” he said. “There’s really a place for everybody to fit in.” 59. What is the new challenge to American agriculture? A. Fewer and older farmers. C. More natural disasters. B. Higher fuel prices. D. Lower agricultural output.

60. Why is Kerrigan visiting universities across the country? A. To draw federal agriculture officials’ attention. B. To select qualified agriculture graduates. C. To clarify a recent blog posting. D. To talk more students into farming careers. 61. According to Matt Rush, American agriculture will provide opportunities for younger people because__________... A. the government will cover production costs B. global food supplies will be even lower C. investment in agriculture will be profitable D. America will increase its food export 62. What do the underlined words “to turn around the statistics” in the last paragraph mean? A. To re-analyze the result of the national census. B. To increase agricultural production. C. To bring down the average age of farmers. D. To invest more in agriculture.

C
Medical drugs sometimes cause more damage than they cure. One solution to this problem is to Put the drugs inside a capsule, protecting them from the body—and the body from them—until they Can be released at just the right spot. There are lots of ways to trigger (引发) this release,

116

including changing temperature, acidity, and so on. But triggers can come with their own risks—burns, for example. Now, researchers in California have designed what could be a harmless trigger to date: shining near-infrared light (NIR, 近红外线) on the drug in the capsule. The idea of using light to liberate the drug in the capsule isn’t new. Researchers around the globe have developed polymers (聚合物) and other materials that begin to break down when they absorb either ultraviolet (UV, 紫外线) or visible light. But tissues also readily absorb UV and Visible light, which means the drug release, can be triggered only near the skin, where the light can Reach the capsule. NIR light largely passes through tissues, so researchers have tried to use it as a Trigger. But few compounds (化合物) absorb NIR well and go through chemical changes. That changed last year when Adam Salutary, a chemist at the University of California, San Diego, reported that she and her colleagues had designed a polymer that breaks down when it Absorbs NIR light. Their polymer used a commercially available NIR-absorbing group called O-nitro benzyl (ONB). When they catch the light, ONB groups fall off the polymer, leading to its Breakdown. But ONB is only a so-so NIR absorber, and it could be poisonous to cells when it Separates from the polymer. So Salutary and her colleagues reported creating a new material for capsules that’s even better. This one consists of a long chain of compounds called cresol groups linked in a polymer. Cresol contains reactive(易反应的) components that make it highly unstable in its polymeric form, a feature Salutary and her colleagues use to their advantage. After polymerizing the cresols, they cap each reactive component with a light-absorbing compound called Bah. When the Bucks absorb NIR light, the reactive groups are exposed and break the long polymer into two short chains. Shining additional light continues this breakdown, potentially releasing any drugs in the capsule. What’s more, Salutary says, Bah is 10 times better at absorbing NIR than is ONB and is not poisonous to cells. 63. According to the passage, which of the following could be the best trigger? A. Temperature change. B. NIR light. C. Acidity change. 64. Why is ONB unsatisfactory? A. It breaks down when it absorbs NIR light. B. It falls off the polymer and triggers drug release. C. It has not come onto the market up till now. D. It is not effective enough and could be poisonous. D. UV light.

117

65. Which word can be used to complete the following process of changes? A. protected B. formed C. exposed D. combined

D
Franz Kafka wrote that “a book must be the ax (斧子) for the frozen sea inside us. ”I once Shared this sentence with a class of seventh graders, and it didn’t seem to require any explanation. We’d just finished John Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men. When we read the end together out loud in class, my toughest boy, a star basketball player, wept a little, and so did I. “Are you crying?” one girl asked, as she got out of her chair to take a closer look. “I am,” I told her, “and The funny thing is I’ve read it many times.” But they understood. When George shoots Lonnie, the tragedy is that we realize it was always Going to happen. In my 14 years of teaching in a New York City public middle school, I’ve taught Kids with imprisoned parents, abusive parents, irresponsible parents; kids who are parents Themselves; kids who are homeless; kids who grew up in violent neighborhoods. They understand, more than I ever will, the novel’s terrible logic—the giving way of dreams to fate (命运). For the last seven years, I have worked as a reading enrichment teacher, reading classic works Of literature with small groups of students from grades six to eight. I originally proposed this idea to My headmaster after learning that a former excellent student of mine had transferred out of a selective high school—one that often attracts the literary-minded children of Manhattan’s upper classes—into a less competitive setting. The daughter of immigrants, with a father in prison, she perhaps felt Uncomfortable with her new classmates. I thought additional “cultural capital” could help students Like her develop better in high school, where they would unavoidably meet, perhaps for the first Time, students who came from homes lined with bookshelves, whose parents had earned Ph. Do’s. Along with Of Mice and Men, my groups read: Sounder, the Red Pony, Lord of the Flies, Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth. The students didn’t always read from the expected point of

118

view. About The Red Pony, one student said, “it’s about being a man, it’s about manliness.”I had never before seen the parallels between Scarface and Macbeth, nor had I heard Lady Macbeth’s soliloquies (独白) read as raps (说唱), but both made sense; the interpretations were playful, but serious. Once introduced to Steinbeck’s writing, one boy went on to read The Grapes of Wrath and told me repeatedly how amazing it was that “all these people hate each other, and they’re all white.” His historical view was broadening, his sense of his own country deepening. Year after year, former students visited and told me how prepared they had felt in their first year in college as a result of the classes. Year after year, however, we are increasing the number of practice tests. We are trying to teach students to read increasingly complex texts, not for emotional punch (碰撞) but for text Complexity. Yet, we cannot enrich (充实) the minds of our students by testing them on texts that Ignore their hearts. We are teaching them that words do not amaze but confuse. We may succeed in Raising test scores, but we will fail to teach them that reading can be transformative and that it Belongs to them. 66. The underlined words in Paragraph 1 probably mean that a book helps to __________... A. realize our dreams C. smooth away difficulties B. give support to our life D. awake our emotions

67. Why were the students able to understand the novel Of Mice and Men? A. Because they spent much time reading it. B. Because they had read the novel before. C. Because they came from a public school. D. Because they had similar life experiences. 68. The girl left the selective high school possibly because__________... A. she was a literary-minded girl C. she couldn’t fit in with her class A. creatively B. passively B. her parents were immigrants D. her father was then in prison C. repeatedly D. carelessly

69. To the author’s surprise, the students read the novels__________... 70. The author writes the passage mainly to__________... A. introduce classic works of literature B. advocate teaching literature to touch the heart C. argue for equality among high school students D. defend the current testing system

第四部分: 任务型阅读(共10 小题;每小题1 分,满分10 分)
请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。 注意:请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。每个空格只填一个单词。 “Happiness Advantage” Effect In July 2010 Burt’s Bees, a personal-care products company, was going through enormous Change as it began a global expansion into 19 new countries. In this kind of high-pressure situation, Many leaders bother their assistants with frequent meetings or flood their in-boxes with urgent Demands. In doing so, managers lift everyone’s anxiety level, which activates the part of the brain that processes threats and steals resources from the prefrontal cortex ( 大脑皮层), which is Responsible for effective problem solving. Burt’s Beas’s then-CEO, John Wolfgang, took a different approach. Each day, he’d send out an E-mail praising a team member for work related to global marketing. He’d interrupt his own Presentations to remind his managers to talk with their teams about the company’s values. He asked Me to further a three-hour session with employees on happiness in the course of the expansion effort. As one member of the senior team told me a year later, Wolfgang’s emphasis on developing positive Leadership kept his managers actively involved and loyal as they successfully transformed the Company into a global one. That outcome shouldn’t surprise us. Research shows that when people work with a positive mind-set (思维模式), performance on nearly every level—productivity, creativity, involvement— Improves. Yet happiness is perhaps the most misunderstood driver of performance. For one, most People believe that success comes before happiness. “Once I get a promotion, I’ll be happy,” they Think. Or, “Once I hit my sales target, I’ll feel great.” But because success is a moving target—as Soon as you hit your target, you raise it again—the happiness that results from success does not last

120

Long. In fact, it works the other way around: People who have a positive mind-set perform better in The face of challenge. I call this the “happiness advantage”—every business outcome shows Improvement when the brain is positive. I’ve observed this effect in my role as a researcher and Lecturer in 48 countries on the connection between employee happiness and success.
