No school I have taught in has ever ignored spelling or considered it unimportant as 16 basic skills. There are, however, vastly different ideas about 17 to teach it, or how much priority it must 18 (give) over general language development and writing without holding him back with the complexities of spelling? 19 spelling becomes the only focal point of his teacher’s interest; clearly a bright child will be likely to “play safe”. He will tend to write only words within his spelling range, 20 (choose) to avoid adventurous language. That’s why teachers often encourage the early use of dictionaries and pay attention to content 21 than technical ability. I was once shocked to read on the bottom of a sensitive piece of writing about a 22 (person) experience:” This work is terrible! There are too many spelling 23 (error) and your writing is illegible. “It may have been a sharp criticism of the pupil’s technical abilities in writing, but it was also a sad reflection on the teacher who had omitted to read the essay, 24 contained some beautiful expressions of the child’s deep feelings. The teacher was not wrong to pay attention 25 the errors, but if his priorities had centered on the child’s ideas, an expression of his disappointment with the presentation would have given the puple more motivation to seek improvement. 第二部分： 阅读（共两节，满分 50 分） 第一节：阅读理解（共 20 小题; 每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下面短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上 将该项涂黑。 （A） When you put down your pens at end of the college entrance exam, 12 hard years of study will have come to an end.

second. And that does not include cost of paying for air time. Which is more valuable, the program or the ad? In term of money – and making money is what television is all about – the commercial is by far the more important. Research, market testing, talent, time and money --- all come together to make us to buy a product. No matter how bad we think a commercial is, it works. The sales of Charm went up once the ads began. TV commercials actually buy their way into our head. We, in turn, buy the product. And the ads work because so much time and attention are given to them, Here are some rules of commercial ad making, If you want to get the low middle – class buyer, make sure the announcer has a though, manly voice. Put some people in the ad who work with their hands, If you want to sell to upper class audience, make sure that the house, the furniture, and the hair style are the types that the group identifies with. If you want the buyer feel superior to the character selling the product, then make that person so stupid or silly that everyone will feel great about himself or herself. We laugh at commercials. We don’t think we pay that much attention to them. But evidence shows we are kidding ourselves. The making of a commercial that costs so much money is not kid stuff. It’s big, big business. And it’s telling us what to think, what we need, and what to buy. To put simply, the TV commercial is a form of brainwashing. 31. TV commercials are more important than other programs to television because ______. A. they bring in great profits B. they require a lot of money to make C. they are not difficult to produce D. they attract more viewers than other programs 32. the purpose of all the efforts made in turning out TV commercial is ______. A. to persuade people to buy the product B. to show how valuable the product is C. to test the market vales of the product D. to make them as interesting as TV movies 33. From the rules set for making commercial ads, we can see that_______. A. the lower – middle – class buyer likes to work with his hand B. the more stupid the characters, the more buyers of the product C. ad designers attract different people with different skills D. an upper – class buyer is only interested in houses and furniture 34. It is believed by the writer that _______ A. few people like to watch TV commercials B. TV commercials are a good guide to buyers C. TV commercials often make people laugh D. people do not think highly of TV commercials 35. What does the author actually mean in the last paragraph?

(C) A few minutes ago , walking back from lunch I started to cross the street when I heard the sound of a coin dropping . It wasn’t much but , as I turned , my eyes caught the heads of several other people turning too . A woman had dropped what appeared to be a dime . The tinkling sound of a coin dropping on sidewalk is an attention-getter . It can be nothing more than a penny . Whatever the coin is , no one ignores the sound of it . it got me thinking about sounds again . We are surrounded by so many sounds that attract the most attention . People in New York City seldom turn to look when a fire engine , a police car or an ambulance comes screaming along the street . When I’m in New York , I’m a New Yorker . I don’t turn either . Like the natives . I hardly hear a siren (警笛) there . At home in my little town in Connecticut , it’s different . The distant loud noise of a police car , an emergency vehicle or a fire siren brings me to my feet if I’m seated and brings me to the window if I’m in bed . It’s the quietest sounds that have most effect on us , not the loudest . In the middle of the night , I can hear a dripping tap a hundred yards away through three closed doors . I’ve been hearing little creaking noises and sounds which my imagination turns into footsteps in the middle of the night for twenty-five years in our house . How come I never hear those sounds in the daytime ? I’m quite clear in my mind what the good sounds are and what he bad sounds are I’ve turned against whistling , for instance . I used to think of it as the mark of a happy worker but lately I’ve been connecting the whistler with a nervous person making noises . The tapping , tapping , tapping of my typewriter as the keys hit the paper is a lovely sound to me . I often like the sound of what I write better than the looks of it . 36．The sound of a coin dropping makes people _________ A．think of money B．look at each other C．pay attention to it D．stop crossing the street 37．How does the author relate to sounds at night ?

I have tried never to let my profession stand in the way of being a good parent. I no longer consider myself the center of the universe. I show up. I listen. I try to laugh. I am a good friend to my husband. I have tried to make marriage vows(誓约) mean what they say. I am a good friend to my friends, and they to me. Without them, there would be nothing to say to you today. So here's what I wanted to tell you today: Get a life. A real life, not a desire of the next promotion(提升), the bigger paycheck, the larger house. Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. And remember that love is not leisure(空闲), it is work. Pick up the phone. Send an e-mail. Write a letter. And realize that life is the best thing and that you have no business taking it for granted. It is so easy to waste our lives, our days, our hours, our minutes. It is so easy to exist instead of to live. I learned to live many years ago. Something really, really bad happened to me, something that changed my life in ways that, if I had my choice, it would never have been changed at all. And what I learned from it is what, today, seems to be the hardest lesson of all. I learned to love the journey, not the destination. I learned to look at all the good in the world and try to give some of it back because I believed in it, completely and totally. And I tried to do that, in part, by telling others what I had learned. By telling them this: Read in the backyard with the sun on your face. Learn to be happy. And think of life as a deadly illness, because if you do, you will live it with joy and passion as it ought to be lived. 41. The best title of this passage probably is A. Love your friends B. Live a real life C. Don't waste time D. Be a good mother and wife 42. How did the author form her view of life? A. By working and social experience. B. Learning from her friends. C. Through an unfortunate experience. D. Because of her children and husband. 43. The underlined sentence "It is so easy to exist instead of to live" in the fifth paragraph probably has the same meaning as

Most of them are quite nice and are always there to give us a hand when we need one. Not so long ago, you might think the teacher was The Teacher and was almighty(万能的) and the students were there to learn and nothing else. Now there is some kind of interactivity between the students and the teacher. To my mind, teachers are here to teach us their knowledge and to listen to what we have to say. Indeed, students aren’t afraid to tell them what they think any more. However, this doesn’t mean that they don’t control their troops, it is just because times and methods have changed. Our teachers are now closer to their students and have created some kind of soft climate that allows us to be in class without a feeling of obligation or what so ever. Nevertheless, we can but notice that the “power” is still in the teachers’ hands. If something goes wrong it is up to him or her to react properly and to carry out punishment if it is necessary.

第二节 读写任务(共 l 小题，满分 25 分) The Possible Version: Cherish the relationship Modern relationship between teachers and students is much better than that in the past, which is more relaxing and pleasant, but it doesn’t mean that teachers have lost the power over their students. Nowadays, getting along well with teachers is much valued than ever before. We need to respect them and appreciate their efforts, while at the same time we need to do our basic responsibilities well, such as attending class on time, being well prepared for class with completed assignments and being fully concentrated in class. Actually, having a good relationship with teachers makes it easier for us to get along smoothly with our study at school. As far as I am concerned, my teacher was my good friend, so I would turn to him whenever I had any trouble and he always gave me a hand timely. It has a strong effect on my good relationship and it is worthwhile for everyone to cherish.
