第三部分 阅读理解（共 20 小题：每小题 2.5 分，满分 50 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项。 A While you are online there are plenty of perfectly legal sites where you can listen to music for free. This gives you the chance to listen to music before buying it, discover new music, and create great online playlists that you can share with others. The Sixty One The Sixty One is devoted to showcasing obscure or unknown artists of all genres. There’s a range of musical styles from classical to rock and roll, folk to jazz, and everything in between. Don’t expect to find big name musicians on here; you’re more likely to find the musicians playing at local coffee shops than bands you hear on the radio. You can find fantastic music that you never would have heard of otherwise. Pow Wow Pow Wows are th e Native American people’s way of meeting together, to join in dancing, singing, visiting, renewing old friendships, and making new ones. This is a time method to renew Native American culture and preserve the rich heritage of American Indians. PowWows.com has 2 online radio stations that play Native American Music 24/7 free! Here you can listen to your favorite artists and drum groups on your computer or mobile device and add your music to our station. Playlist Playlist has an enormous library, so you can create playlists with almost any musician you can think of. They have both some lesser known artists and big names, so you have a really good selection. The worst
part: Due to licensing laws, many of the songs on Playlist are now restricted to certain countries. So unless you live inside the US, it is likely that you might not be able to find all of your favorite songs. Pandora Pandora is an intelligent Internet radio site. Basically, as you listen, you can give each song a thumbs up or thumbs down. You can create your own radio station that only plays music you like. The best part: It listens to your opinion, so that after a while it’s only playing music you like, but the list is always changing and expanding. My Space Combine a major social networking site with thousands of artists around the world. Each musician has their own page, which normally has a playlist of several of their songs. But it has a huge range of musicians ranging from huge stars to the up-and-coming, and you can listen to the music and interact with the rest of the page. 51.

B I was waiting in a check-in line at Arlanda International Airport. The man ahead of me was quite a big guy. As an airport baggage handler checked through a customer at the roadside, he accidentally knocked over the man’s luggage. He quickly collected the fallen bags and apologized for his mistake. However，the traveler burst into anger, shouting at the baggage handler for his carelessness. The baggage handler calmly apologized and smiled all the time. The customer continued to berate(痛斥) the man, even as he turned away and headed for his gate. Through it all the baggage handler smiled and remained calm. The other customers in line witnessed the incident and admired the baggage handler’s professionalism
and self-control. ―I have never seen such restraint and humility,‖ one of the customers sighed, ―How do you keep your cool when somebody is attacking you so viciously?‖ ―It’s easy,‖ the baggage handler answered. ―He’s going to London, but his bags are going to Tokyo.‖ I won’t recommend that we use revenge to relieve stress. But let me tell you about one of my friends who has found a way to go through most of his life unaffected by the turbulence that disturbs most people. He is one of the calmest people I’ve ever known and he describes how he keeps his cool no matter how turbulent a situation becomes. He says, ―I look at it this way. A traffic jam has no power to make me angry. It just stops my car. And that’s the way I try to look at most of what happens to me.‖ With that philosophy, this guy goes through life with a calmness I can only envy. My friend likes to say things like, ―A rude customer has no power to make me angry; he just fusses.‖ And, ―A mistake I made has no power to make me upset; it’s just a chance to do better.‖ He shows how we can truly find calmness in the midst of chaos. 56. The airport baggage handler remained calm during the customer’s berating because ______. A. he was good at selfcontrol B. he wanted to show his professionalism C. he wanted to revenge the customer D. he knew well the airport rules 57. What is the author’s attitude towards the baggage handler? A. Appreciative. B. Disapproving. C. Concerned. D. Sympathetic. 58. Why does the author tell us about his friend? A. To tell us what is true calmness. B. To explain a special philosophy. C. To show his envy to the friend. D. To advise us to have good manners. 59. What does the underlined word ―turbulence‖ mean? A. an uneasy or a disturbing state of mind B. a confusing or uncontrolled situation C. a person that makes people angry D. violence that hurts people 60. Which of the following could be the best title for the passage? A. A Clever Baggage Handler B. Restraint and Humility in Life C. A Philosophy for Everyone D. Calmness in Chaos C Some American high schools are for students with special interests, like science or the arts. New York City even has a program for those interested in the food service industry, called Food and Finance High School. New York also has what are called international high schools, or internationals, for immigrant students. They must be new learners of English who have been in the United States less than four years. The first school opened in nineteen eighty-five. The city will begin the new t erm next month with ten. New York works with a nonprofit organization, the Internationals Network for Public Schools. Support
from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has helped the network expand. The network says the graduation rate was seventy percent last year in the four New York schools open long enough to have graduating classes. That, compared with twenty-three percent for English language learners in all of the city schools. Over all, New York officials recently reported that the city’s four-year graduation rate, reached fifty-two percent last year. At the same time, they reported that the city’s dropout rate fell below fifteen percent. The Internationals Network says its schools have an average dropout rate of just five percent. Claire Sylvan is the executive director of the group. She says students drop out mainly because their families need them to work or because parents arrange marriages for girls. The Internationals Network mainly helps find teachers and trains them in the teaching method of the internationals. Claire Sylvan says the teaching approach is to have students use their different strengths to help each other. They work in small groups, but she says they are not grouped by ability. She says the students discuss issues, then produce a product like a paper, a play, a poster or a report. They learn English as they work. 61. The international high school in New York is __________ A. for immigrant students with special interests B. for new immigrant students who have been living in New York less than four years C. for new learners of foreign language from around the world D. for new young learners of English language living in the US less than four years 62. The international high schools in New York _______ A. have been opened for less than 20 years and set a good example B. can bring great profit for the Internationals Network for Public Schools C. will expand from having one school to having ten D. have given great support to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation 63. Which of the following shows the graduation rate of the schools of the International Networks last year in the four New York schools? Graduation rate Dropout and other
64. One of the reasons why some students drop out of school is that _____. A. their parents can’t afford to pay for the education B. they have to help their parents with the work C. girls are forced to make money for their families D. they have trouble in passing all kinds of exams 65. Claire Sylvan would agree with all the following statements EXCEPT _____.
A. with the help o f the network, the students can find right teachers. B. students use their different strengths to help each other C. students can be divided into different classes according to their ability D. students can discuss with each other and finish their work by themselves D Most people I meet want to develop more harmonious and satisfying relationships. But we may not realize that this can only be achieved by partnering with two new and strange allies(盟友)： uncertainty and confusion. Most of us aren’t trained to like confusion or to admit we feel hesitant and uncertain. In our schools and organizations, we place value on sounding certain and confident.
As life continues to speed up, I believe our changing world requires less certainty and far more curiosity. I’m not suggesting we let go of our beliefs, but that we become curious about what someone else believes. As we become open to the disturbing differences, sometimes we discover that another’s way of interpreting the world is actually essential to our survival. For me, the first step in becoming curious is to admit that I’m not succeeding in figuring things out by myself. If my solutions don’t work as well as I’d like, I take these as signs that it’s time to begin asking others what they think. I try to become a conscious listener, actively listening for differences. There are many ways to listen for differences. Lately, I’ve been listening for what surprises me. This isn’t easy — I’m accustomed to sitting there, nodding my head as someone voices his opinions. But when I notice what surprises me, I’m able to see my own views more clearly, including my assumptions. If you’re willing to be disturbed and confused, I recommend you begin a conversation with someone who thinks differently from you. Listen for what’s different and what surprises you. Try to stop the voice of judgement or opinion and just listen. At the end, notice whether you’ve learned something new. We have the opportunity many times a day to be the one who listens to others and the one who is curious rather than certain. When we listen with fewer judgements, we always develop better relationships with each other. It’s not differences that divide us. It’s our judgements that do. Curiosity and good listening bring us back together. As I consider partnering with confusion and uncertainty, I’m learning that we don’t have to agree with each other in order to think well together. There is no need for us to be joined at the head. We are already joined by our hearts. 66. According to the passage, when communicating with others, most of us try to behave____. A. hesitantly and confusedly B. honestly and harmoniously C. responsibly and actively D. confidently and convincingly 67. According to the author, in order to cope with our changing world, we should ______. A. reconsider traditional beliefs before accepting them. B. learn to interpret other people’s behavior. C. become more curious about other people’s opinions.
D. try to develop more harmonious relationships with others. 68. What does the passage advise you to do when you hear different ideas? A. We should let go of our beliefs. B. We should admit that we are not succeeding in figuring out things. C. We should be accustomed to sitting there and listening. D. We should listen and find out the valuable points 69. What do the underlined sentences in the passage imply? A. We should listen more and judge less. B. We should make decisions based on sound judgement. C. Differences among people separate them. D. It is important to seek common ground and reserve differences. 70. Which of the following best describes the author’s attitude to uncertainty and confusion? A. Favorable. B. Resistant. C. Curious. D. Doubtful.
第 II 卷（非选择题，共 35 分）
第三部分：写作 第一节 阅读表达（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下面短文，并根据题目要求用英语回答问题（请注意问题后的字数要求） 。 How do you keep a library when you’ve got no room for your books? With rising rents and record numbers of young people having to move with their parents, it’s clear that we are a moving generation. As a student in Leeds I moved three times in four years; in London it was seven times in three years.
Regularly having to load our possessions into laundry bags and boxes takes a lot of our finance and energy, but the effect on our book collections is rarely considered. Keeping a collection of beloved books in a damp flat with no shelves, which you’ll probably have to move out of in six months’ time, is a challenge. Deciding which books to keep and which to reject becomes increasingly difficult. Do you hold on to the books you know you’ll reread or do you keep the to-be-read pile intact (完好无损的) ? Donating books to a charity shop or local school may be virtuous, but when you haven’t had time to read them since your last move, it becomes depressing. There’s a copy of Much Ado About Nothing I’ve been moving around with for nearly a decade because it is the only piece of Shakespeare in the marketplace. ―Just buy a Kindle!‖ you might argue — but for many people, books are more than just books. They offer us an emotional connection to the past, to the person who gave them to us. They are a way to brighten up a dark flat, they are a link to home; they are the hardest thing to move and the most enjoyable thing to unpack. So what if you are already facing your second move this year and can’t bear the thought of pensioning off more of your beloved books? You start reading more. Read all the books in your current bedroom and work out if they’re worth the trip; give away as many books as you can; leave books with trusted friends to be reclaimed at a later point. Start looking at your books creatively. 71. Why has the moving generation appeared? (no more than 15 words) 72. While moving, why do people often ignore their book collections? (no more than 10 words) 73. What makes the author keeps a copy of Much Ado About Nothing? (no more than 10 words) 74. What does the underlined phrase pensioning off in the last paragraph mean? (no more than 3 words) 75. What would you do with your books when you have to move? Give a persuasive reason. (no more than 25 words) 第二节 书面表达（满分 25 分） 76. 天津市养宠物的家庭越来越多，对此， “天津中学生英语报”组织了一场讨论：城市内是否 可以养宠物。请参考下图的各类信息，介绍讨论情况，并说明自己的观点和建议。 注意： 词数不少于 100 字； 可以适当增减情节，使行文连贯； 开头已经写好。 支持养宠物 反对养宠物 你的观点

Some students think it is a good idea to keep pets because old people who live alone at home can get comfort from pets. Besides, animals can act as guides for disable people and companions for kids. All in all, getting alone well with animals will make our life interesting. On the contrary, other students are against the idea of keeping pets. In their opinion, many people will have their pets producing shit wherever they like, thus polluting the environment. What’s worse, pets can make lots of noise and even attack people. I like animals, so I don’t think it is bad to keep pets at home. But we must take some measures to prevent them from polluting our environment or causing other trouble.
