（A） Sheryl Wakefield’s family used to live in six houses grouped together on a quiet country road in the middle of the southern US. Now all of their houses have gone and Wakefield’s sister and niece
are dead. They were killed as tornadoes (龙卷风)blew through their small town of Carbon Hill in Alabama, US, between November 8---10. Her sister and niece died when a tornado lifted their small mobile house into the air and threw it upon a tree. Now all that is left is the bent metal frame, which was wrapped (包裹) around the tree. ―Everybody’s house is just gone. My son doesn’t even know where his house is,‖ Wakefield said through tears. ―It is gone . It is just gone. Seven people in Carbon Hill were killed, 250 homes were destroyed and the town no longer has a grade school. It is now just a pile of bricks without a roof. It was only three months ago that Carbon Hill’s high school burned down. In Mossy Grove, Tennessee, clothes flapped in the wind, power lines swung in the air and cars were destroyed after the winds threw them around like toys. Over half of the houses in this small town were just a pile of bricks after the tornadoes passed through at up to 224 kilometers an hour. Susan Henry escaped unhurt: ―Yesterday, we had a nice brick house and four cars. Today we do not even own a toothbrush (牙刷)。 At least 36 people in five states were killed as more than 70 tornadoes moved along a path of destruction (破坏) from Louisiana to Pennsylvania. More than 200 people were injured. Dan McCarthy who studies storms said unusually warm weather, followed by a front of cold air, had caused the tornadoes. Tornado warnings were given in the worst-hit (灾情最严重的) areas. In Alabama, 46 tornadoes warnings were given in 12 hours. 61. Wakefield’s sister and niece were killed _____. A. in a car accident C. in a heavy rain B. in a strong wind D. in their house
62. Carbon Hill’s high school was burned down in_____. A. January B. March C. August D. June
63. In Mossy Grave more than _____ percent of the houses have been destroyed after tornadoes. A. 20% B. 70% C. 50% D. 10%
64. The tornadoes were caused by _____. A. Dan McCarthy who studies tornadoes B. warm weather , followed by a front of cold air C. a wind moved along a path of destruction D. a pile of bricks blown by a strong wind （B）
In our country, power stations that make electricity are often built on rivers. Cool water that is used in making electricity becomes warm as it runs through the station. Then the heated water is returned to the river. When large amount of warm water is poured into a river, the river itself is heated. The temperature of the water may be raised only a few degrees. Yet these few degrees can change the animal and plant life in the river. Heat causes a loss of oxygen (氧气), bacteria (细菌) in the river can not break down waste matter. The river is no longer clean. In the coming years, new power stations will be built. Many will be run by nuclear (核) energy. A nuclear power station heats a river even more than a power station run by gas, oil, or coal. In some states, laws are being passed to protect the rivers. Certain rivers will be called ―warm-water rivers‖ Power station will not be allowed to raise their temperature above 68°F. The temperature of ―warm-water rivers‖ will not be raised above 83°F. Power stations will have to cool the water they pour into rivers. 65. It can be inferred from the passage that _____. A. fish must have oxygen C. plants need warm water 66. What does the passage mainly discuss? A. The change caused by heating rivers. B. How do nuclear power stations use electricity. C. Why must we build new power stations D. How important is the water temperature for the fish. 67. Why are the laws being passed to protect the rivers? A. We must save all the water we can do to make electricity. B. People are catching too many fishes in our streams and rivers. C. Without laws, warm water poured into rivers could kill the fish. D. With laws, the temperature of ―warm-water rivers‖ can not be raised above 68° F 68. From this passage we know that _____. A. we will have to stop building new power stations. B. a nuclear power station is more harmful than an ordinary one in polluting a river C. nobody cares about the temperatures of our rivers. D. bacteria are harmful. （C） B. bacteria must be removed from rivers D. the warm water is cleaner than the cool water
In some ways, the United States has made some progress. Fires no longer destroy 18,000 buildings as they did in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, or kill half a town of 2,400 people, as they did the same night in Peshtigo, Wisconsin. Other than the Beverly Hill Supper Club fire in Kentucky in 1977, it has been forty years since more than 100 Americans died in a fire. But even with such successes, the United States still has one of the worst fire death rates in the world. Safety experts say the problem is neither money nor technology, but the indifference(无所谓) of a country that just will not take fires seriously enough. American fire departments are some of the world's fastest and best-equipped. They have to be. The United States has twice Japan's population, and 40 times as many fires. It spends far less on preventing fires than on fighting them. And American fire-safety lessons are aimed almost entirely at children, who die in large numbers in fires but who, against popular beliefs, start very few of them. Experts say the wrong is an opinion that fires are not really anyone's fault. （失误） That is not so in other countries, where both public education and the law treat fires as either a personal failing or a crime(罪行). Japan has many wood houses; of the 48 fires in world history that burned more than 10,000 buildings, Japan has had 27. Punishment for causing a big fire can be as severe as life imprisonment.（终身监禁） In the United States, most education dollars are spent in elementary schools. But, the lessons are aimed at too limited a number of people; just 9 percent of all fire deaths are caused by children playing with matches. The United States continues to depend more on technology than laws or social pressure. There are smoke detectors in 85 percent of all homes. Some local building laws now require home sprinklers (喷水装置). New heaters and irons（熨斗） shut themselves off if they are tipped. 69. The reason why so many Americans die in fires is that _____. A. they took no interest in new technology B. they did not pay great attention to preventing fires C. they showed indifference to fighting fires D. they did not spend enough money on fire equipment 70. It can be inferred （推断）from the passage that______. A. fire safety lessons should not be aimed only at American children B. American children have not received enough education of fire safety lessons C. Japan is better equipped with fire equipment than the United States D. America's large population leads to more fires
71. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? A. There has been no great fire in the USA in recent 40 years that leads to high death rate. B. There have been some great fires in the USA in recent 40 years leading to high death rate. C. There has been only one great fire in the USA in recent 40 years that led to high death rate D. The fire in Kentucky in 1977 made only a few people killed. 72．In the USA people depend on _____ to prevent fire. A. laws B. social pressure （D） English is the native or official language of one-fifth of the land area of the world. It is spoken in North America, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. In South Africa and India it is one of the official languages. More people study English than any other language. In many countries, the textbooks in universities are in English. Many university classes are taught in English even though the native language is not English. English is the language of international communication. It is the language of international business, research, and science. More than three-fourths of the world’s mail is written in English. More than half of the scientific research journals are in English. Most other languages have borrowed many English words. Why did English become the international language? In the middle of the nineteenth century, French was the international language. Then Britain became very powerful in the world. England started colonies (殖民地) in North America and India in the seventeen century. By 1900 England also had colonies in other parts of Asia, Africa and the South Pacific. The people in the colonies had to use English. Slowly it became more important than French internationally. After the Second World War, the United States became very powerful, and even more people began to learn English. Is English a good international language? It has more words than any other language. The grammar is simpler than in the other major languages. However, English spelling is difficult. Foreigners all have trouble spelling English. So do native speakers! Since 1880, people have invented over fifty artificial (not natural) languages. No one speaks them as a native language. However, none of them has ever become popular. Some people do not want to study English, but it is the international language. There is no way to change that now. 73. English is the native language of _____. A. South Africa B. Australia C. All of Canada D. Malaysia C. technology D. life imprisonment
74. England started a colony in India in the _____.
75. The writer concludes that _____. A. it is necessary to invent a new language. B. English is an international language whether you like it or not. C. English is much better than other languages. D. English should be spoken all over the world. V. 改错： 10% The day before the speech contest English teacher talked to me. She said that she and my classmate all wished me success, but it didn’t matter that I would win or not. When I was on the stage the next day, I felt very nervous that I shook like a leaf. There were so many people present! Suddenly I caught a sight of my English teacher in the crowd. She was smiling but nodding at me. I remembered her words and calm down. I did a good job and won the first prize. Now my picture and prize is hanging in the library. Whenever I see them, I will think my dear English teacher. 1. _________ 2. _________ 3. _________ 4. _________ 5. _________ 6. _________ 7. _________ 8. _________ 9. _________ 10. __________

Who can take LIPITOR: ●People who cannot lower their cholesterol enough with diet and exercise ●Adults and children over 10 Who should NOT take DIPITOR: ●Women who are pregnant, may be pregnant, or may become pregnant．Lipitor may harm your unborn baby． ●Women who are breast-feeding．Lipitor can pass into your breast milk and may harm your baby． ●People with liver（肝脏） problems POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF LIPITOR Serious side effects in a small number of people: ●Muscle （肌肉） problems that can lead to kidney （肾脏） problems, including kidney failure ●Liver problems．Your doctor may do blood tests to check your liver before you start Lipitor and while you are taking it． Call your doctor right away if you have： ●Unexplained muscle pain or weakness, especially if you have a fever or feel very tired ●Swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat that may cause difficulty in breathing or swallowing ●Stomach pain Some common side effects of LIPITOR are: ●Muscle pain ●Upset stomach ●Changes in some blood tests HOW TO TAKE LIPITOR DO： ●Take Lipitor as prescribed by your doctor． ●Try to eat heart-healthy foods while you take Lipitor． ●Take Lipitor at any time of day, with or without food． ●If you miss a dose（一剂）, take it as soon as you remember．But if it has been more than 12 hours since your missed dose, wait．Take the next dose at your regular time． Don't: ●Do not change or stop your dose before talking to your doctor． ●Do not start new medicines before talking to your doctor． 56.

A．To teach patients ways for quick recovery． B．To show the importance of a good lifestyle． C．To give information about a kind of medicine． D．To present a report on a scientific research． B Sports can help you keep fit and get in touch with nature. However, whether you are on the mountains, in the waves, or on the grassland, you should be aware that your sport of choice might have great influence on the environment. Some sports are resource-hungry. Golf, as you may know, eats up not only large areas of countryside, but also tons of water. Besides, all sorts of chemicals and huge amounts of energy are used to keep its courses（球场） in good condition. This causes major environmental effects. For example, in the dry regions of Portugal and Spain, golf is often held responsible for serious water shortage in some local areas. There are many environment-friendly sports. Power walking is one of them that you could take up today. You don’t need any special equipment except a good pair of shoes; and you don’t have to worry about resources and your purse. Simple and free, power walking can also keep you fit. If you walk regularly, it will be good for your heart and bones. Experts say that 20 minutes of power walking daily can make you feel less anxious, sleep well and have better weight control. Whatever sport you take up, you can make it greener by using environment-friendly equipment and buying products made from recycled materials. But the final goal should be ―green gyms‖. They are better replacements for traditional health clubs and modern sports centers. Members of green gyms play sports outdoors, in the countryside or other open spaces. There is no special requirement for you to start your membership. And best of all, it’s free. 60. Which of the following is the author most probably in favor of? A. Cycling around a lake. B. Motor racing in the desert. C. Playing basketball in a gym. D. Swimming in a sports center. 61. What do we know about golf from the passage? A. It is popular in Portugal and Spain. B. It causes water shortages in some areas. C. It pollutes the earth with chemicals and wastes. D. It needs water and electricity to keep its courses green. 62. The author writes the passage to_______. A. show us the function of major sports B. introduce different types of environment-friendly sports C. discuss the major influence of popular sports D. encourage us to go in for green sports C Andy rode slowly on his way to school, day-dreaming about the fishing trip that his father had promised him. He was so busy dreaming about all the fish he would catch that he was unaware of everything else around him. He rode along until a strange sound drew him to the present. He came to a stop and looked curiously up to the heavens. What he saw shocked and terrified him. A huge swarm(群) of bees filled the sky like a black cloud and seemed to be heading angrily towards him. With no time to waste, Andy sped off in the opposite direction, without knowing how to escape the swarm. With a rapidly beating heart, he sped down the rough road. As the bees came closer, his
panic increased. Andy knew that he was allergic to bee stings(蜇). The last sting had landed him in hospital —and that was only one bee sting! He had been forced to stay in bed for two whole days. Suddenly, his father’s words came to him. “When you are in a tight situation, don’t panic. Use your brain and think your way out of it.‖ On a nearby hill, he could see smoke waving slowly skywards from the chimney of the Nelson family home. ―Bees don’t like smoke,‖ he thought. ―They couldn’t get into the house.‖ Andy raced towards the Nelson house, but he knew he could not reach the house in time. The bees would catch up with him soon. Suddenly, out of the corner of his eyes, he spotted a small dam used by Mr. Nelson to water his vegetable garden. He got off his bike and into the cool water, disappearing below the surface. After holding his breath for as long as he could, Andy came up for air and noticed the bees had gone. Dragging himself out of the dam, he struggled up the hilly slope(坡) and rang the doorbell. Mrs. Nelson took him inside and rang his mother. ―You’ll really need that fishing break to help you recover,‖ laughed his mother with relief. ―Thank goodness you didn’t panic!‖ But Andy did not hear her. He was dreaming once again of the fish he would catch tomorrow. 63. Why did Andy fail to notice the swarm of bees earlier? A. He was riding to school. B. He was listening to a strange sound. C. He was going fishing with his father. D. He was lost in the thought of the fishing trip. 64. How did Andy avoid the bees in the end? A. He asked Mr. Nelson for help. B. He hid himself under the water. C. He rushed into the Nelson house. D. He rode off in the opposite direction. 65. Which of the following is NOT mentioned about the swarm of bees in the passage? A. They crowded like a black cloud. B. They shocked and terrified Andy. C. They made Andy stay in hospital. D. They were coming towards Andy. 66. Which of the following can best describe Andy’s escape from the bees? A. No pains, no gains. B. Once bitten, twice shy. C. Where there is a will, there is a way. D. One’s mind works faster in an emergency. D To what degree can a computer achieve intelligence？The answer to this question may lie in a newly-developed US computer program called Smarter Child and the Internet. If you ran into Smarter Child online, you would be surprised at this kid’s huge memory. It can recite many facts. For example, Smarter Child knows every baseball player in every team this season. He knows every word in the dictionary and the weather in every major city areas across the US. However, if you ask Smarter Child other questions, you get strange answers. A question about Smarter Child’s age returns. ―One year, 11 days, 16 hours, 7 minutes, and 47 seconds!‖ Asking where he lives gets, ―In a clean room in a high-tech building in California.‖ Smarter Child uses the vast information on the World Wide Web as his memory bank. To answer questions about spelling, for instance, Smarter Child goes to American Heritage Dictionary online. For the weather, he visits www.intellicast.com. Some scientists believe that by joining the many systems of the Internet, an artificial being with the combined knowledge of, say, Albert Einstein, Richard Nixon and Britney Spears could be born. However, if Smarter Child wants to think and learn on his own like the boy-computer David in the movie A. I. Artificial Intelligence, he must overcome two problems. The first is that computers find it difficult to read web pages because the files are labeled in different ways. That’s why programmers need to tell Smarter Child where to look for the weather. It would be a much more difficult task to let him find it himself. Another problem is that while Smarter Child can process information more exactly and faster than any human, he lacks common sense—a basic grounding of knowledge that is obvious to any young child.
67．From the text we can infer that www.intellicast.com is a website A．where we people can find Smarter Child B．which is specially designed to help Smarter Child C．where weather forecasts are made D．which is about artificial intelligence 68．It is probably most difficult for Smarter Child to . A．learn the ability to tell right behaviors from wrong ones. B．tell us how to spell a difficult word C．provide us with a famous poem by Shakespeare D．tell us how the American government is run 69．The underlined ―it ‖ in Paragraph 6 refers to ________. A．where to look for the weather B．Smarter Child. C．a much more difficult task D．to read web pages 70．Which of the following is the best title for the passage? A．A New Web Child B．Intelligence Development C．Smarter Child D．The Future of Internet 第 II 卷 （共 55 分） (请将答案填写在答案卷上)

Two sisters, Mildred Hill, a teacher at the Louisville, Kentucky Experimental Kindergarten, and Dr. Patty Hill, the headmaster of the same school, together wrote a song for the children, named Good Morning to All. As the local expert on spiritual songs, and as the organist( 风 琴 师 ) for her church, Mildred combined her musical talents with her sister’s knowledge in the area of Kindergarten Education, Good Morning to All was sure to be a success. The sisters published the song in a collection called ―Song Sto ries of the Kindergarten‖ in 1893.Thirty-one years later, after Dr. Patty Hill became the head of the Department of Kindergarten Education at Columbia University’s Teacher College, a gentleman by the name of Robert H. Coleman published the song, without the sisters’ permission. What was worse, he added a second lyric, the familiar Happy Birthday to You.[来源:学科网 ZXXK] Mr. Coleman’s addition of the second lyric made the song famous and popular and, eventually, the sisters’ original first lyric disappeared. Happy Birthday to You the one and only birthday song, had altogether replaced the sisters’ original title Good Morning to All. After Mildred died in 1916, Patty, together with a third sister named Jessica, discussed the issue together and took Mr. Coleman to court. In court, they proved that they, indeed, owned the melody(曲调). Because the family legally owns the song, they can earn royalties(取版税)on it, whenever it is sung for commercial purposes. 61. Why was the song Good Morning to All successful? A. Because both of the two sister liked music a lot. B. Because the two sisters are experts on music and education. C. Because both of the sisters are passive and patient. D. Because the two sisters are teachers of kindergarten. 62. What do the underlined words later soured mean (in Paragraph 1)? A. The song was completely changed in the end. B. The song later had a sad development story. C. The son didn’t become popular years later. D. The song is meant for commercial use later. 63. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. The Hill family got a lot of money eventually.
B. Mr. Coleman got a lot of money from the song. C. The Hill sisters got support from the court. D. Mr. Coleman published the song secretly. 64. What’s the main idea of the passage? A. The origin of a famous song. B. The addition of a famous song. C. The life of the two sisters. D. The story of a family’s fame. B It was the final examination for an introductory English course at the local university. The examination was two hours long, and exam papers were given to the students. The professor was very strict and told the class that any exam that was not on his desk in exactly two hours would not be accepted and the student would fail. Half an hour into the exam, a student came rushing in and asked the professor for an exam paper. ―You’re not going to have time to finish this,‖ the professor stated coldly as he handed the student a paper. ―Yes, I will,‖ replied the student. He then took a seat and began writing. After two hours, the professor called for the exam papers, and the students filed up and handed them in. All except the late student, who continued writing. Not until half an hour later, the last student came up to the professor who was sitting at his desk preparing for his next class. He attempted to put his exam on the pile of exam papers already there. ―No, you don’t, I'm not going to accept that. It’s late.‖ The student seemed not to believe what the professor said and appeared to be angry. ―Do you know WHO I am?‖ ―No, as a matter of fact I don’t,‖ replied the professor. ―DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?‖ the student asked again. ―No, and I don’t care.‖ replied the professor with an air of superiority. ―Good,‖ replied the student, who quickly lifted the pile of completed exam papers, put his in the middle, and walked out of the room. 65. The student was late for his exam and ________. A. the professor asked him for reason B. he didn’t finish the paper on time C. the professor refused him to take D. he had to wait for the next exam 66.

D. to threaten the professor not to collect his paper 68. What’s the best title of the passage? A. A Special Examination. B. A Strict Professor. D. A Clever Student. C Crosstalk, a traditional form of comic storytelling, is making a comeback in China’s teahouses and theaters. Audiences can laugh the night away every Saturday at the Qianxiangyi Teahouse in Tianjin, entertained by the apprentices (学徒) of Hou Baolin, Ma Sanli or Yin Shoushan -- all leading crosstalk artists of years past —for only 20 yuan (US$2.40). The success in Tianjin has also given mo tivation to the rejuvenation (复活) of crosstalk in Beijing and other places. Although the art form originated in Beijing in the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911), Tianjin became a place where rising stars developed their styles and new pieces were tried out. The city was famous for the quality of its crosstalk performances. ―We only want to bring the traditional pieces back to the audiences, helping them to learn their charms and definitions,‖ said Yin Xiaosheng, head of the Zhongyou Arts Troupe. Known in Chinese as xiangsheng (literally, "face and voice"), crosstalk was the main form of comedy throughout most of the 20th century. In the old days in Tianjin and elsewhere, temple fairs and markets were the main places for crosstalkers to perform, although they occasionally also appeared in teahouses or theaters. Usually crosstalk pieces draw on every aspect of Chinese culture, from history and folk tales to contemporary social issues. Although there are hundreds of pieces in the traditional works, they are constantly rewritten to suit the times and the audience, while new works are written as well. This is one of the features that have made crosstalk a populist(平民化) art form throughout its history. ―Crosstalk was in the doldrums with competition from other art forms, especially TV,‖ sa id Wang Xiaochun, headmaster of the Northern Storytelling Arts School of China (NSAS). ―But it has regained its status with crosstalk fans, especially young people, growing aware of its rare qualities.‖ The reawakening of interest in the traditional art is going beyond merely watching and listening for many. ―More and more students are coming to NSAS to study crosstalk, including some girl students,‖ said Wang, ―They are sure that crosstalk will have a strong market.‖ 69. From the passage, we can know the crosstalk originates(源于) from ______. A. the TV shows B. the teahouse and theater C. the cinema D. the temple fairs and markets 70. Crosstalk makes a comeback mainly because_________. A. it is one of the most popular traditional art forms B. the pieces mainly cover folk tales and social issues C. the pieces are changing with times and audience D. it is performed by some leading crosstalk artists 71. Which is the opposite of the underlined word ―doldrums‖ (in the last paragraph)?
C. A College Course.
A. Boom. B. Variety. C. Harmony. D. Period. 72. From the pa ssage we can predict the future of crosstalk lies in______. A. making up a variety of traditional pieces B. having advantages over other media C. young people’s the awareness of its value D. the competitive and big markets for art D This brief book is aimed at high school students, but speaks to anyone learning at any stage of life. Its formal, serious style closely matches its content, a school-masterly book on schooling. The author, W. H. Armstrong, starts with the basics: reading and writing. In his opinion, reading doesn’t just mean recognizing each word on the page; it means taking in the information, digesting it and incorporating it into oneself just as one digests a sandwich and makes it a part of him. The goal is to bring the information back to life, not just to treat it as dead facts on paper from dead trees. Reading and writing cannot be completely separated from each other; in fact, the aim of reading is to express the information you have got from the text. I’ve seen it again and again : someone who can’t express an idea after reading a text is just as ineffective as someone who hasn’t read it at all. Only a third of the book remains after that discussion, which Armstrong devotes to specific tips for studying languages, math, science and history. He generally handles these topics thoroughly and equally, except for some weakness in the science and math sections and a bit too much passion regarding history. Well, he was a history teacher ? if conveyed only a tenth of his passion to his students, that was a hundred times more than my history teachers ever got across. To my disappointment, in this part of the book he ignores the arts. As a matter of fact, they demand all the concentration and study that math and science do, though the study differs slightly in kind. Although it’s commonly believed that the arts can only be naturally acquired, actually, learning the arts is no more natural than learning French or mathematics. My other comment is that the text aged. The first edition apparently dates to the 1960s—none of the references(参考文献)seem newer than the late 1950s. As a result, the discussion misses the entire computer age. These are small points, though, and don’t affect the main discussion. I recommend it to any student and any teacher, including the self-taught student. 73. According to Armstrong, the goal of reading is to________. A. gain knowledge and expand one’s view B. expresses ideas based on what one has read C. understand the meaning between the lines D. get information and keep it alive in memory 74. The author of the passage insists that learning the arts_________. A. is as natural as learning a language B. demands real passion C. is less natural than learning math
D. requires great efforts 75. What is a shortcoming of Armstrong’s work according to the author? A. It lacks new information. B. The style is too serious. C. There is too much discussion. D. Some ideas are slightly wrong. 76. This passage can be classified as________. A. an advertisement B. news report C. a feature story D. a book review zxxk E No poem should ever be discussed or ―analyzed‖, until it has been read aloud by someone, teacher or student. Better still, perhaps, is the practice of reading it twice, once at the beginning of the discussion and once at the end, so the sound of the poem is the last thing one hears of it. All discussions of poetry are, in fact, preparations for reading it aloud, and the reading of the poem is, finally, the most telling ―interpretation(解释)‖ of it, suggesting tone, rhythm, and meaning all at once. Hearing a poet read the work in his or her own voice, on records or on film, is obviously a special reward. But even those aids to teaching can not replace the student and teacher reading it or, best of all, reciting（背诵）it. I have come to think, in fact, that time spent reading a poem aloud is much more important than ―analyzing‖ it, if there isn’t time for both. I think one of our goals as teachers of English is to have students love poetry. Poetry is ―a criticism of life‖, and ―a heightening （提升） of life‖. It is ―an approach to the truth of feeling‖, and it ―can save your life‖. It also deserves a place in the teaching of language and literature more central than it presently occupies. I am not saying that every English teacher must teach poetry. Those who don’t like it should not be forced to put that dislike on anyone else. But those, who do teach poetry must keep in mind a few things about its essential nature, about its sound as well as its sense, and they must make room in the classroom for hearing poetry as well as thinking about it. 77. What is the better way to have a better understanding of a poem? A. Discussing it with others. B. Practising reading it aloud. C. Hearing the poet read out. D. Analyzing it by oneself. 78. According to the author, one of the purposes of teaching English is getting students A. to like poetry B. to criticize life C. to enjoy life D. to teach poetry 79. The underlined word ―make room ‖( in the last paragraph) probably means ____. A. to build a booth B. to provide equipment C. to leave a certain amount of time D. to set aside enough space 80. The passage is mainly about _______.zxxk A. teaching poetry B. discussing poetry C. reading a poem D. reciting a poem

I had an interesting dream last night. I dreamed that I took part in a race. At first, I could not
run very fast and fell behind. But I didn’t lose heart and kept running(跑). All the students on the playground cheered me on, ―Come on! ’’ I was so encouraged that I ran faster and faster till I caught up with all the other runners. I felt as if flying(飞) like a superman. In the end, I got to the finishing line first and I won the race. I felt very proud of myself. Many of my classmates(同学) threw me up into the air. Just at that time I woke(醒来) up and found myself still in bed!
Recently I went to the cinema to see a film named Let the Bullets Fly I think the film doesn’t let the audience down and of course it’s one of the most Chinese entertaining movies this year. The film, directed by Jiang Wen who also plays the role in the film, is set in the western part of Sichuan in the 1930s or 1940s. Many famous performers, including Hong Kong star Chow Yun-Fat and local favorite Ge You, gather together to make the film and they give an amazing performance in the film. While seeing the film, I’m impressed by its striking plot and smart dialogues as well as humorous lines. zxxk However, some people complain that it is hard to understand the plot of the film, and some even think the film is dull and full of violence. Personally, the film is well worth seeing and it is a real hit/masterpiece. Especially some of Jiang’s fans prefer to queue up to buy tickets for the film. 南安一中 2010—2011 学年高二年上学期期末考 第二部分：英语知识运用（共两节, 满分 45 分） 第一节：单项填空（共 15 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 15 分） 从 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项。 21．In recent years, ______ global warming is becoming ______ concern for people all over the world． A．the; the B．不填；不填 C．不填；a D．the; 不填 22．It really seemed ages ______ the police came to the scene of the accident and rescued the injured people.

Well before classes start, students and teachers order Lattes, Cappuccinos and Hot Chocolates. Then, during the first period, teachers call in orders on their room phones, and students make deliveries. By closing time at 9:20 a.m., the shop usually sells 90 drinks. ―Whoever made the chi tea, Ms. Schatzman says it was good,‖ Christy McKinley, a second year student, announced recently, after chatting with the teacher on the line. The shop is called the Dixie PIT, which stands for Power in Transition. Although some of the students are not disabled, many are, and the PIT helps them prepare for life after high school. They learn not only how to run a coffee shop but also how to deal with their affairs. They keep a timecard and receive paychecks, which they keep in check registers. Special-education teachers Kim Chevalier and Sue Casey introduced the Dixie PIT from a similar program at Kennesaw Mountain High School in Georgia. Not that it was easy. Chevalier’s first problem to overcome was product-related. Should schools be selling coffee? What about sugar content? Kenton County Food Service Director Ginger Gray helped. She made sure all the drinks, which use non-fat milk, fell within nutrition guidelines. The whole school has joined in to help. Teachers agreed to give up their lounge (休息室) in the morning. Art students painted the name of the shop on the wall. Business students designed the paychecks. The basketball team helped pay for cups. 56. What is the text mainly about？ A. A best-selling coffee. B. A special educational program. C. Government support for schools D. A new type of teacher-student relationship. 57. The Dixie PIT program was introduced in order to . A. raise money for school affairs B. do some research on nutrition C. develop students’ practical skills D. supply teachers with drinks 58. How did Christy McKinley know Ms. Schatzman’s opinion of the chi tea？ A. She once met her in the shop. B. She heard her saying it with others. C. She went to her office to deliver the tea. D. She talked to her on the phone. 59. We know from the text that Ginger Gray . A. starts the guidelines for coffee shops B. sees that the drinks meet health standards C. teaches at Dixie Heights High School D. manages the Dixie PIT program in Kenton County B EBay will launch an online group gift-buying service today designed to make it easier for several people to chip in, buy and pay for gifts using their social-network and e-mail contacts． EBay North America Vice President Christopher Payne says it is going to be a major step forward in social commerce, which is the still-small practice of selling products through social networks．Online retail experts aren't as certain, but eBay says the new tool makes it easier for friends and relatives to chip in （凑钱） for gifts because it eliminates the headache of collecting contributions．It can also be used for family members to pitch in to buy, say, an expensive child seat for a mother． Anything on eBay that's available immediately, rather than up for bid, can be purchased this way starting today at groupgifts．eBay．com．If members of an extended family wanted to buy a gift for one member, one person would choose a gift — or have one recommended by eBay — and invite family members to chip in using Facebook or e-mail．Those who wanted to join in would choose an amount to contribute （or agree to pay a requested amount） and pay using either PayPal or a credit card．They could also add a personal note． If enough people don't chip in, the organizer can ask people to contribute more or choose a less expensive gift． "I see myself using this most in cases when I typically might not buy someone what they want
because of price," says Nitzan Shaer of Boston, who was part of an online test of the site． EBay, with its 200 million products, millions of sellers and mobile commerce proficiency, is a logical place to pull together the products, groups of buyers and payment tools, Payne says． At least 12 sites, such as FrumUs． com and eDivvy． com, facilitate （便于,利于） group purchases but don't sell products．Although a handful of retailers, including Victoria's Secret and 1-800-Flowers, sell products through Facebook, Payne says he expects social commerce will take off as rapidly as shopping using mobile devices．EBay did more than $600 million in sales on mobile devices last year and expects mobile sales to increase to $1．5 billion this year． Although one in five consumers surveyed said they'd used Facebook for shopping in the past year, 88% said they would not be buying holiday gifts through a social network, mobile phone or smartphone．Of these, 26% were reluctant because of security or privacy concerns, and 20% were unclear about the benefits of using phones or Facebook to shop． 60．What procedure should be followed if your extended family intends to buy your grandpa an 80 th birthday gift? ①Asking family members to contribute more money if enough members don’t chip in ②Choosing a gift at groupgifts．eBay．com ③Paying using PayPal or a credit card ④Contributing or agreeing to pay a requested amount of money via Facebook or e-mail A．②-①-③-④ B．①-③-②-④ C．②-④-①-③ D．②-③-④-① 61．Where can we most probably read this text? A．In a research paper B．In a travel magazine C．In a microblog D．On a website 62．What does the underlined ―it‖ mean in the 2nd paragraph? A．The online group gift-buying service B．People’s social-network and e-mail contacts C．A major step forward in social commerce D．The still-small practice of selling products through social networks 63．It can be inferred from the text that ______． A．through eBay’s new tool, 200 million products on eBay are available to online shoppers B．social commerce can eliminate the headache of collecting contributions C．eBay’s new tool will gain mass adoption by online shoppers D．with the help of eBay’s new tool, FrumUs．com and eDivvy．com will also sell products C Sydney Airport International Terminal—Arrival Area SPECIALTY RETAIL Newslink: Two separate Newslink stores cater to all your reading needs including newspapers, magazines and the latest bestsellers.

B. your thirsty problem in Blue Sky Cafe and your hunger problem in Macdonald’s C. your hunger and thirsty problems in the Blue Sky Cafe D. your hunger and thirsty problems in the Macdonald’s D Many children first learn the value of money by receiving an allowance (pocket money). The purpose is to let children learn from experiences at an age when financial mistakes are not very costly. The amount of money that parents give to their children to spend as they wish differs from family to family. Timing is another consideration． Some children get a weekly allowance． Others get a monthly allowance． In any case, parents should make clear what，if anything．the child is expected to pay for with the money．At first, young children may spend all of their allowance soon after they receive it. If they do this，they will learn the hard way that spending must be done within a budget．Parents are usually advised not to offer more money until the next allowance． The object is to show young people that a budget demands a choice between spending and saving．Older children may be responsible enough to save money for larger costs，like clothing or electronics．Many people who have written on the subject of allowances say it is not a good idea to pay your child for work around the home．These jobs are a normal part of family life． Paying children to do extra work around the house， however， be useful． can even provide an can It understanding of how a business works． Allowances give children a chance to experience the three things they can do with money．They can share it in the form of gifts or giving to a good cause. They can spend it by buying things they want．Or they can save it. Saving helps children understand that costly goals require sacrifice．You have to cut costs and plan for the future．Requiring children to save part of their allowances can also open the door to future saving and investing．Many banks offer services to help children and teenagers learn about personal finance. A saving account is an excellent way to learn about the power of compound interest． Compounding works by paying interest on interest．So，for example，one dollar invested at two percent interest for two years will earn two cents in the first year. The second year, the money will earn two percent of one dollar and two cents, and so on．That may not seem like a lot, but over time is adds up． 67．Giving an allowance, parents should consider all the following EXCEPT _. A．how much the child should get each time B．whether the child has made a budget C．where the money really goes． D．how often a child can get it 68．The underlined words“compound interest”in the passage probably mean _. A．increasing curiosity to learn how to make more money B．stronger power to hold one’s attention to saving money C．money paid by the bank on your original money and the gain from it D．you parents’ money from working in the bank 69．The author of the passage holds the opinion that_______. A．what children learn by handling allowances may be beneficial in the future B．children can learn to set up their own business with their allowances C．keeping allowances in the bank is the best choice for children D．it is not a good idea to pay children for housework at home 70．What is the best title for the passage? A．Be Generous to Pay Your Children． B．Be Wise to Avoid Financial Mistakes． C．Saving Allowances Does Good to Children． D．Allowances Help Children Learn about Money． E America’s greatest technological achievement, the Hoover Dam, now has a companion piece, a bridge held up by the longest arch in the Western Hemisphere（半球）. The Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, which opened this month and connects the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada, crosses the vast chasm（峡谷）890 feet above the Colorado River that is controlled by the dam. The striking 1,900-foot-long structure will improve traffic in the region and help protect the dam from being destroyed. It is the seventh highest bridge in the world, behind four in China, one in Papua New Guinea and one in the US state of Colorado. ―The Hoover Dam is the greatest civil engineering achievement in America’s history,‖ said the
bridge project manager Dave Zanatell. ―Our goal was not to outdo or outshine it. Our goal was to, in a respectful way, do something that would be great for our generation and that would stand besides Hoover Dam in a respectful and quality way that would become a part of Hoover’s legacy（遗产）.‖ Just as the Hoover Dam was built in the heart of the Great Depression（大萧条）and was seen as an example of the nation’s can-do spirit, some hope this project can also provide some uplift. The bridge is surprising: at 1,050 feet, its support arch holds up a roadway that lies on 300-foot-long concrete pillars（柱子）, some of the tallest in the world. It contains 16 million pounds of steel. The idea of the bridge came into being in the 1960s because the top of the Hoover Dam has been a narrow two-lane road that is the fastest route from Arizona to Las Vegas and then the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Access to the dam from each direction is a dangerously winding route, but massive trucks and passenger vehicles shared it for decades. During the day, when thousands of tourists travel to the dam from Las Vegas three times as many accidents as on a normal road will happen. The bridge has a sidewalk on the side facing the dam. The wall on both sides is 54 inches high, so walkers can take photos there. 71.Which of the following is true of the Hoover Dam? A. It was completed recently. B. It was built during the hard times. C. It has the longest arch. D. It’s the seventh highest dam in the world. 72. What is one of the purposes of building the bridge? A. To protect the dam. B. To save the cultures. C. To outdo the dam. D. To develop the tourism. 73. The underlined word ―uplift‖ in Paragraph 4 means _____. A. lift of the heavy object B. support in money C. spiritual encouragement D. instruction in technology 74. Which of the followings shows the right position of the bridge and dam?
75. The text is mainly about ______. A. the Hoover Dam B. American western development C. a tour along the Colorado River D. a recently built bridge 第二卷 第四部分 写作（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节 短文填词（共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下面短文，根据以下提示：1）汉语提示; 2)首字母提示；3）语境提示，在每个空格内填 入一个适当的英语单词，并将该词完整地写在右边相对应的横线上。所填单词要求意义准确、拼 写正确。 Boys and girls, Our club aims to help Senior 2 students learn to take a positive attitude towards the problems we are f with, so that we can 76________ keep in high spirits to ________ up the challenge of study pressure. 77__________ There will be a variety of colorful _______(活动) on Saturday afternoons. 78________ Firstly, we will invite experts ________(定期) to give lectures on 79_____________ psychological problems, to _______ you can turn to seek for advice on 80_____________ how to r______ anxiety.

There are serious （严 肃的）papers for those who want to know about important happenings everywhere, both at home and abroad．There are popular newspapers for those who prefer entertainment(娱乐) to information． The London newspaper that is best known outside Great Britain is probably the Times．It began in 1785, and has a high reputation (名声) for believable news and serious opinions on the news． It calls itself an independent （独立的）paper, which means that it does not give its support to a particular political party. Its leading articles give the opinions of the editors, not those of the owners of the paper． Letters to the editor are printed in the newspaper ．These parts of the Times are always interesting． Most of the letters are serious subjects． from time to time there will be long letters on the But subject which is not at all serious, perhaps on a new fashion (时装) of dress, or the bad manners of the young people, compared with the manners of thirty years ago． 46．If you want to get pleasure, please buy yourself ＿＿＿＿． A. a serious newspaper C. any independent paper B．a foreign newspaper D．a popular newspaper
47．The Times is an independent paper because ＿＿＿＿＿． A．it gives special support to all the political parties B．it supports no political parties C．the editors' opinions are not examined by the owners of the paper D．it is not controlled by the British Government 48．The underlined word “vary” in the passage probably means “＿＿＿＿＿”． A．improve C．are different B．compete with each other D．keep in touch with each other
49．Which of the following is NOT true? A．The subjects of the letters to the editors are serious at all times．
B．The amusing parts of the paper are letters to the editors． C．The manners of the young people thirty years ago were often polite． D．Sometimes pieces of writing on the latest fashion in clothes can satisfy your interest. B In earliest times, men considered lightning （闪电）to be one of the great mysteries（神密） of nature． Some ancient people believed that lightning and thunder were the weapons(武器) of the gods． In reality lightning is a flow of electricity （电流）formed high above the earth． A single flash （闪烁） of lightning 1.6 kilometers long has enough electricity to light one million light bulbs． The American scientist and statesman, Benjamin Franklin, was the first to show the connection between electricity and lightning in 1752． In the same year he also built the first Lightning Rod (避雷 针)． His device（发明物） protects buildings from being damaged by lightning． Modern science has discovered that one stroke of lightning contains more than 15 million volts(伏 特)． A spark（火花） between a cloud and the earth may be as long as 13 kilometers, and travel at a speed of 30 million meters per second．Scientists estimate (估计) that there are about 2,000 million flashes of lightning per year． Lightning hits the Empire, State Building in New York City 30 to 48 times a year． In the United States alone it kills an average of one person every day． The safest place to be in case of an electrical storm is in a closed car． Outside, one should go to low ground and not get under trees． Also, one should stay out of water and away from metal fences． Inside a house, people should avoid open doorways and windows and not touch wires or metal things． With lightning, it's better to be safe than sorry.? 50．Lightning is actually ＿＿＿＿＿． A．weapon A．scientists B．electricity B．ground C．light C．lightning rod D．mystery D．gods 51．People once thought that lightning came from ＿＿＿＿＿＿． 52．Benjamin Franklin ＿＿＿＿＿＿． A. made the first lightning rod C. invented electricity A．Swimming pool B．built the Empire State Building D．prevented lightning from hitting cars B. A high place C．Under a tree D．A car C For years scientists have been worried about the effects of air pollution on the earth’s natural conditions. Some believe the air inside many houses may be more dangerous than the air outside. It may be one hundred times worse. Indoor air pollution can cause a person to feel tired, to suffer eye pain, headache and other problems. Some pollutants (污染物) can cause breathing disorders, diseases of blood and even cancer. Most scientists agree that every modern house has some kind of indoor pollution. People have paid more attention to the problem now. It is said that when builders began making houses and offices they did not waste energy. To do this they built buildings that limited the flow of air
53．＿＿＿＿＿＿is the best place to be in during an electricity storm．
between inside and outside. They also began using man-made building materials. These materials are now known to let out harmful gases. As the problem became more serious, scientists began searching for a way to deal with it. They discovered a natural pollution control system for building--- green plants. Scientists do not really know how plants control air pollution. They believe that a plant’s leaves absorb or take in the pollutants. In exchange the plant lets out oxygen through its leaves and small organizations on its roots. Scientists suggest that all buildings should have one large plant or several small plants inside for every nine square metres of space. Studies of different plants show that each absorbs different chemicals. So the most effective way to clean the air is to use different kinds of plants. Having green plants inside your house can make it a prettier and more healthy place. 54. Some kind of indoor pollution can be found in ________. A. every modern house C. all kinds of houses B. every old house D. all kinds of offices
55. The indoor air pollution is caused by ________. A. the limit of the flow of air between inside and outside B. the building way that the builders want to save energy C. the building things that are made of man-made materials D. the man-made building materials and the limit of air-flow 56. The reason why we should use different kinds of plants to clean the air is that ________. A. plants can let out all kinds of pollutants indoors B. plants may take in more oxygen which people need C. plants can absorb all kinds of harmful indoor chemicals D. plants can make our houses prettier D Do you like to eat out? Do you like to eat quickly? Do you like inexpensive food? Some people go to fast-food restaurants for these reasons. In the past, people usually went to diners（小餐馆）for these reasons. In fact, many people in the States still go to diners today for the same reasons. A man named Walter Scott had the first ―diner‖ in 1872. It wasn’t a real diner. It was only a food cart(手推车). People on the street walked up to the cart to buy food. These carts served late-night workers who wanted a cup of coffee and a late-night meal. The meal was a sandwich or boiled eggs. In 1887, Samuel Jones built the first diner big enough to allow the customers to come inside. However, they did not sit down. Later, people built diners with counters and stools, and people sat down while they ate. Before long, many diners stayed open around the clock. In other words, people were able to eat in diner at any time. Diners changed in other ways, too. The original menu of sandwiches and coffee became bigger. It included soup, favorite dishes, and a breakfast menu. In addition, diners soon became permanent(永久的) buildings. They were no longer carts on wheels. Diners today look similar to the diners of the early 1900s. They are usually buildings with large windows. Inside, the diners have shining counters with stools, booths, and tables and chairs. People can eat all three meals in a modern diner.
Today, many people eat in fast-food restaurants such as McDonald’s and Burger King. However, the diner remains an American tradition, and thousands of people still enjoy eating there. It was popular a century ago, and it is still popular today. 57.A man named Walter Scott had the first ―diner‖ in 1872. Why is the word ―diner‖ in quotation marks(引号)？ A. Because it is spelled differently from ― dinner‖ B. Because the first diner was not what it is now C. Because diner was a new word D. Because it is special. 58.What meals did the first diners serve? A. Only breakfast B. Only lunch C. Only night-meals D. All of the above 59.Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. Diners existed before a fast-food restaurant. B. The menu included more food than sandwiches and coffee. C. Burger King is a fast-food restaurant. D. Sandwiches became bigger. 60.The main idea of the passage is that ______________. A. The diner is a traditional , popular place to eat in the United States. B. Samuel Johns built the first diner big enough to allow the customers to come inside. C. American diners serve many types of f ood 24 hours a day to their customers. D. Diners are different from fast-food restaurants in many ways. E Laptop(便携式) computers are popular all of the world. People use them on trains, airplanes, in airports and hotels. These laptops connect people to their workplace. In the United States today, laptops also connect students to their classrooms. Westlake College in Virginia will start a laptop computer program that allows students to do schoolwork at anywhere they want. Within five years, each of the 1500 students at the college will receive a laptop. The laptops are part of a $10 million computer program at Westlake, a 110-year-old college. The students with laptops will also have access to the Internet. In addition, they will be able to use e-mail to ―speak‖ with their teachers, their classmates, and their families. However, the more important of the laptop program is that students will be able to use computers without doing to computer lab. They can work with it at home, in a fast-food restaurant or under the trees---- anywhere at all. Because of the many changes in computer technology, laptops use in higher education, such as colleges and universities, is workable. As laptops become more powerful, they become more simila r to desktop computers. In addition, the portable computers can connect students to not only the Internet, but also libraries, and other resources. State higher-education officials are studying how laptops can help students. State officials also are testing laptop programs at other universities, too. At Westlake College, more than 60 percent of the staff use the computers. The laptops will allow teachers to use computers in their lessons. As one Westlake teacher said, ― Here we are in the middle of Virginia and we are given students a window on the world. They can see everything and do everything.‖
61.The main purpose of the laptop program is to give each student a laptop to ---------. A. use for their schoolwork C. work at home A. They don’t really talk C. laptops have speakers A. all teachers use computers C. it is an old college in America B. access the Internet D. connect them to libraries B. They use the computer language D. None of the above reasons is correct. B. 1500 students have laptops D. Students there can do everything
62.Why is the word ―speak‖ in the second paragraph in quotation marks?
63.Which of the following is true about Westlake College?
64.A window on the world in the last paragraph means that students can ----------. A. attend the lectures on information technology B. travel around the world C. get information from around the world D. have free laptops 65.What can we infer from the passage? A. The program is successful C. The program is too expensive B. The program is not workable D. We don’t know the result yet

Here are our main ideas about it. All of us think we can do a lot in our daily life to live a low-carbon life. First, we advocate saving water and power. For example, turn off lights and electrical appliances if possible and spend less time watching TV or surfing the Internet. Don’t have water running all the time while cleaning our teeth, face, clothes, and so on. Second, we should sort out the rubbish and recycle as much as possible. Besides, we suggest saving and recycling all kinds of paper as well as usi ng handkerchiefs instead of tissues so that
we can prevent more forests from being destroyed. More importantly, when going out, we had better walk, ride bikes or take buses as often as possible. In my opinion, we should also plant as many trees and flowers as we can in our school, around our houses, along side of streets and roads, etc. It can not only satisfy our eyes and minds but clean the air and reduce noises. We all believe that if everyone does a little for our society it will become more and more beautiful. Best wishes, Yours sincerely, Li Ping

Listening to the radio, watching television, and watching movies are good ways to improve your listening skills. You can improve your speaking skill by talking to native speakers of English whenever possible and by speaking aloud to yourself when you are alone. Reading and writing also need a lot of practice. You can improve your reading skills by reading English language newspapers and magazines. Writing to friends in English and keeping a diary are good ways to practise writing. Hope you have a good time during your stay here for the course. Thank you.

Coming next is the lack of physical exercise. 40% of the students surveyed won’t obey their parents or teachers. In addition, still fewer claim not to have enough communication with others. As far as I am concerned, we students should balance our physical exercise and studies. Just as a saying goes: ―All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,‖ without a sound body, one cannot achieve anything. However, too much attention has been paid only to studies. Therefore, I suggest we should be given less homework and more time for out-of-classroom activities to solve all the problems. Only in this way can we lead a happy and healthy life.

Some people think that advertisements do not give much information but only try to persuade you to buy. They create a demand for goods that are not really needed, Besides, advertising adds to the cost of goods. Further more. they are ugly to look at and spoil the environment.

He did an experiment, using a number of men students at a university who all had normal hearing.
