Fifteen years spent in the field of education has provided me with many treasured moments. One of the most unforgettable 36 when I was teaching second 37 , 10 years ago. In May I decided to plan something special for the children: a Mother’s Day tea. We had put our heads together to 38 ideas of how to 39 our mothers. We practiced singing songs, memorized poems and wrote cards. We decided to hold our tea the Friday before Mother’s Day. I was surprised and 40 to learn that every mother was planning to attend. I 41 invited my own mother. Finally, the big day arrived. Each child 42 up at our classroom door, expecting the arrival of his or her mom. 43 it got closer to starting time, I looked around and my eyes quickly found Jimmy. His mother hadn’t shown up and he was looking 44 . I took my mother by the hand and walked over to Jimmy. “Jimmy,” I said, “I have a bit of problem here and I was 45 if you could keep my mother 46 while I’m busy.” My mom and Jimmy sat at a table. Jimmy 47 my mom her treats, presented her with the gift I had made, just as we had 48 the day before. Whenever I looked over, my mother and Jimmy were in deep 49 . Now 10 years later, I work with students of all ages, educating them about the environment. Last year, I took a senior class on a field trip, and there was Jimmy. I had the students complete an outline of the day’s 50 and an evaluation of our trip. Then I collected the students’ booklets and checked them to see if 51 was completed. When I came 52 Jimmy’s page, he had written “Remember our Mother’s Day tea we had in second grade, Mrs. Marra? I do! Thanks for all you did for me, and thank your mother, too.” I told him I really enjoyed what he had written. He looked rather embarrassed and 53 his own thanks and walked away. Suddenly he ran back and gave me a big hug. “Thanks again. No one even knew my mother didn’t 54 it.” I ended my workday with a hug from a teenage boy who had 55 stopped hugging teachers years ago. 36. A. lasted B. happened C. experienced D. described 37.

explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5．Then you ask me a question, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $5．" Again, the engineer politely refuses and tries to get to sleep． The programmer, now somewhat anxious, says, "OK, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $50!"

Undergraduates with part-time jobs are a third less likely to get a first or upper second-class degree than other students, harming their career chances. Students from the poorest backgrounds were most likely to take jobs during term because they could not depend on help from their parents. The report, commissioned (委托) by the Department for Education and Skills, also found a clear relation between fear of debt and employment in non-graduate jobs. Students from poorer backgrounds are known to be more unwilling to be in debt than those from middle class families. The study of 8,600 people who graduated in 1999 was made by Peter Elias, of Warwick University, and Kate Purcell, from Bristol Business School. They found that twice as many first-class degrees were awarded to students who did not work during term compared with those who did. Between 35 and 38 percent who worked during term achieved a lower second, compared with about 28 percent of those who did not. Professor Elias said that the increase in school fees next year to ￡3,000 would have to be

monitored (监控) carefully for its effect on poorer students. "Higher education is going to be a harder struggle for those who do not come with all the advantages," he said. He suggested that universities could get in touch with employers to provide work experience on good salaries to choose students during holidays, so that they did not have to work during term. 60. What's the main idea of the passage? A. Students at university like to take part-time jobs to support themselves, B. Term-time jobs at university lead to poorer examination results. C. The school fees are becoming higher and higher at university. D. Students at university have much difficulty getting first-class degrees. 61. Why did lots of students take term-jobs at university? A. No one would lend them money to continue their study. B. They wanted to improve themselves by taking part-time jobs, C. Their families were poor and couldn't afford the high expense. D. They thought earning money was more important than studying. 62. Students who took term-jobs at university ____. A. had no possibility to study better than those who didn't B. couldn't graduate from school normally in the future C. might have trouble in finding a job in the future D. were more independent than those who didn't in the future 63. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. Poor students can't take part-time jobs all the time at university. B. Employers have the duty to help poor students solve the money problem. C. First class degrees couldn't be given to the students whose families were poor. D. High school fees are one of the important reasons why students have to take term-jobs. C The twentieth century saw greater changes than any century before. Changes for the better, changes for the worse, changes that brought a lot of benefits to human beings, changes that put man in danger. Many things caused the changes, but, in my opinion, the most important was the progress in science. Scientific research in physics and biology has vastly broadened our views. It has given us a deeper knowledge of the structure of matter and of the universe. It has brought us a better understanding of the nature of life and of its continuous development. Technology in the application of science has made big advances that have benefited us in nearly every part of life. The continuation of such activities in the twenty-first century will result in even greater advantages to human beings; in pure science—a wider and deeper knowledge in all fields of learning; in applied science--- a more reasonable sharing of material benefits, and better protection of the environment. Sadly, however, there is another side to the picture. The creativity of science has been employed in doing damage to mankind. The application of science and technology to the development and production of weapons of mass destruction has created a real danger to the continued existence of the human race on this planet. We have seen this happen in the case of nuclear weapons. Although their actual use has so far occurred only in the Second World War, the number of nuclear weapons that were produced and made ready for use was so large that if the weapons had actually been used, the result could have been the ruin of the human race, as well as of many kinds of animals. William Shakespeare said, “The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.” The above brief review the application of only one part of human activities—science seems to prove what Shakespeare said. But does it have to be so? Must the ill always go together with the

good? Are we biologically programmed for war? 64. Which of the following best shows the structure of the passage? A． ① ② ③ ④ ⑤ ⑤ ⑤ ②③④⑤ B． ① ② ③ ④ C． ① ② ③ ④ D． ①
（①=Paragraph 1,②=Paragraph 2, ③=Paragraph 3, ④=Paragraph 4,⑤=Paragraph 5） 65. From the fourth paragraph, we can infer that ______. A. a great many nuclear weapons were actually used for war B. a large number of nuclear weapons should have been used for war C. the author is doubtful about the ruin of human beings by nuclear war D. the author is anxious about the huge number of nuclear weapons on the earth 66. The underlined word “mingled” most probably means______ A. simple B. mixed C. sad D. happy 67. What do you think the author is most likely to suggest if he continues to write? A. Further application of science to war. B. More reading of William Shakespeare. C. Proper use of science in the new century. D. Effective ways to separate the good from the ill. D Usually, when your teacher asks a question, there is only one correct answer. But there is one question that has millions of correct 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 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 a 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 gray hair probably became John Gray. Or the John who 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 family’s ancestor was Robert. Irish and Scottish people added Mac or Mc or O. Perhaps all of the MacDonnells and the O’Donnells are descendants of the same Donnell. 68. Which of the following aspects do the surnames in the passage NOT cover? A. Places where people lived. B. People’s characters. C. Talents that people possessed. D. People’s occupations. 69. According to the passage, the ancestors of the Potter family most probably _______. A. owned or drove a cart B. made things with metals C. made kitchen tools or containers. D. built houses and furniture. 70. Suppose an 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 B. Leonard Carter C. George Longstreet D. Donald Greenwood 第二节 七选五 (共5小题；每小题2分，共10分) How to prepare a lecture Being invited to give a lecture is an honor． means that people regard you as an authority on It a given field, subject, or issue． means you are worth listening to． 71 It insights．This is why it is important for you to prepare your lecture well． 1．Think of a good topic． You most likely will be assigned to talk about a certain topic． that's the case, you only need If to make an outline and do some research．But in some cases, you will have to think of your own topic．Although it gives you more freedom to do it, thinking of a topic can be tricky． pick a topic that is timely and socially relevant． 2．Make an outline for the lecture． Start by listing down the points that you will discuss, and then fill in each point with subpoints．If necessary, make a research about your topic． 3． 74 73 But if in so doing you end up with a very long outline, figure how you can shorten the topic or cut where cutting is needed． Statistics, figures, medical information, historical accounts, and similar information should all be checked and it will save your credibility as an authority on the subject you are talking about． 4．Add humor． Don't engage your audience in a dragging soliloquy （独白） ． and are not nonsense, racial, and offensive jokes． A．Check your lecture for accuracy．

情景 Early in the morning, we gathered at the school gate and set out to the Bird Nest by bus. Half an hour later, we got there. Soon after we took our seats, the field and track competitions began. In the field some athletes were competing in the long-jump while a young woman was jumping over a bar in the high jump. About 10 athletes were running in a 200-metre race and they were rushing towards the finish line. All of them tried their best to compete for the honor of representing their countries in the Olympic Games. Standing in the audience area, we couldn’t help cheering for all the athletes. The competitions were so exciting that we enjoyed every minute of them. After that, we went around the Olympic Park and took some pictures in front of the Water Cube. We also bought some souvenirs to remind us of the unforgettable experience. 开放 I think the picture implies a very important rule of doing things — we always need a balance between speed and quality. As we can see in the picture, two men are competing against each other in building walls. One man has built up an obviously higher but twisted wall, while the other’s work is completely vertical, strong and solid though lower. It isn’t difficult to see examples of how often higher speed is set up as a target. “The faster, the better” has become a motto for us due to the fiercely competitive environment of our society. However our work has no value at all if we ignore the quality of it just like the man building the twisted wall. As students, we are required to do things at high speed. It’s definitely helpful to keep in mind that no matter how fast we need to achieve something, quality may never be ignored.
