On the contrary, both their knowledge and experience are enriched. We feel that there are many disadvantages in streaming(按能力分班) pupils. It does not take into account(考虑) the fact that children develop at different rates. It can have a bad effect on both the bright and the not-so-bright children. After all, it can be quite discouraging to be at the bottom of the top grade. Besides, it is rather unreal to grade people just according to their intellectual ability. This is only one aspect of their total personality. We are concerned to develop the abilities of all our pupils to the full, not just their academic ability. We also value personal qualities and social skills, and we find that mixed-ability teaching contributes to all these aspects(方面) of learning.
In our classrooms, we work in various ways. The pupils often work in groups: this gives them the opportunity to learn to co-operate, to share, and to develop leadership skills. They also learn how to cope with personal problems as well as learning how to think, to make decisions, to analyze and evaluate(评估), and to communicate effectively. The pupils learn from each other as well as from the teacher. Sometimes the pupils work in pairs; sometimes they work on individual tasks and assignments, and they can do this at their own speed. They also have some formal class teaching when this is appropriate. We encourage our pupils to use the library, and we teach them the skills they need in order to do this efficiently. An advanced pupil can do advanced work: it does not matter what age the child is. We expect our pupils to do their best, not their least, and we give them every encouragement to reach this goal. 36. By “held back” (Para. 1) the author means “________”. A. made to remain in the same classes B. forced to study in the lower classes C. drawn to their studies D. prevented from advancing 37. The author argues that a teacher’s chief concern should be the development of the students’ ______. A. personal qualities and social skills B. total personality C. intellectual ability D. learning ability and communicative skills 38. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the third paragraph？ A. Group work gives pupils the opportunity to learn to work together with others. B. Pupils also learn to develop their reasoning abilities. C. Group work provides pupils with the opportunity to learn to be capable organizers. D. Pupils also learn how to take part in teaching activities. 39. The author’ s purpose in writing this passage is to _______. A. argue for teaching bright and not-so-bright pupils in the same class B. recommend pair work and group work for classroom activities C. offer advice on the proper use of the library D. emphasize(强调) the importance of proper formal classroom teaching B When asked to point out one or two things that are most important to themselves, many put friends ahead of homes, jobs, clothes and cars. A true friendship carries a long history of experience that determines who we are and keeps us connected. It is a treasure we should protect. Unfortunately, the better friends you are, the more probably you’ll have disagreements. And the result can be what you don’t want－an end to the relationship. The good news is that most troubled friendships can be mended. First, don’t let your pride get in your way. Most of us can forgive each other when differences are brought out in the open. Second, apologize when you’re wrong – even if you’ve been wronged. Over the course of a friendship, even the best people make mistakes. Sometimes, it may be best if the wronged person takes the lead and apologizes. When you apologize, give your friend a chance to admit that he has been wrong. Third, see things from your friend’s point of view. And finally, accept that friendships change as our needs and lifestyles change. Making friends can sometimes seem easy. The hard part is keeping the connections strong during the natural ups and downs that have an effect on all relationships. My suggestion: Consider friendship an honor and a gift, and worth the
effort to treasure and nurture（培养）. 40．What would be the best title for the text? A. Easy Ways to Make Friends C. How to Mend a Troubled Friendship A. who has been mistaken for another C. who has treated friends badly A. we have much in common C. we treat our disagreements wisely A. Stick to our own points of view. C. Make an apology first.
B. Ups and Downs in Friendship D. How to Take the Lead in Making Friends . B. who has been blamed unfairly D. who has admitted his mistakes . B. we know our friends’ mistakes D. we have known one another for long B. Avoid making mistakes. D. Change our lifestyles.
41．The “wronged person” underlined in the text refers to a person
42．According to the text a friendship can last long only if
43．What should we do if we follow the author’s second suggestion?
C During the 19 century scientists found that when certain parts of the brain of man were injured, he would lose the power to do something. And so people thought that each part of the brain did a different job. But modern research has found out that this is not so, for it is not easy to say exactly what each part of the brain does. In the past fifty years, there has been a great increase in the amount of research done on the brain. Chemists and biologists have discovered that the way the brain works was not so simple as people in general may think. Chemists tell us that, 1, 000, 000 chemical changes take place in the brain every second. Some recent researches also suggest that we can remember EVERYTHING that happens to us. We may not be able to recall the things we’ve heard and seen, but they are all kept there in the storehouse of the mind. Earlier scientists thought that the power of one’s brain got weaker and weaker as one grow older. But it is now thought that it is not true. As long as the brain is given plenty of exercise, it keeps its power. It has been made sure that an old person who has always been active in the mind has a quicker mind than a young man who has done some physical work without using much of his brain. The more work we give our brains, the more work they’re able to do. 44. Now the scientists have found that __________. A. a certain part of a man’s brain does a job B. if a man’s brain is injured, he can’t do anything C. it’s difficult to conclude what each part of a man’s brain does D. the brain is more powerful than any other parts of a man’s body 45. Some recent researches suggest that __________. A. a man’s brain can store all the things in the world B. no one can recall everything he has heard and seen C. not everyone can recall all the things he has heard and seen D. anybody has a house of the mind 46. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. The older a man grows, the stronger his brain gets. B. The younger a man is, the more quickly his brain works.
C. The more active his brain is, the more quickly his brain works. D. The more work a man does, the more quickly his brain works. D Life is difficult. It is a great truth because once we truly understand and accept it, then life is no longer difficult. Most do not fully see this truth. Instead they complain about their problems and difficulties as if life should be easy. It seems to them that difficulties represent a special kind of suffering especially forced upon them or else upon their families, their class, or even their nation. What makes life difficult is that the process of facing and solving problems is a painful one. Problems, depending on their nature, cause us sadness or loneliness or regret or anger or fear. These are uncomfortable feelings, often as painful as any kind of physical pain. And since life causes an endless series of problems, life is always difficult and is full of pain as well as joy. Yet, it is in this whole process of solving problems that life has its meaning. Problems are the serious test that tells us success from failure. When we desire to encourage the growth of human spirit, we encourage the human ability to solve problems, just as in school we set problems for our children to solve. It is through the pain of meeting and working out problems that we learn. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Those things that hurt, instruct.” It is for this reason that wise people learn not to fear but to welcome the pain of problems. 47. From the passage, it can be inferred that __________. A. everybody has problems B. we become stronger by meeting and solving the problems of life C. life is difficult because our problems bring us pain D. people like to complain about their problems 48. The writer probably used just one short sentence in the first paragraph to __________. A. save space B. persuade readers C. make readers laugh D. get reader’s attention 49. The main idea of Paragraph 3 is that __________. A. Most people feel life is easy. B. the writer feels life is easy C. the writer likes to complain about his problems D. most people complain about how hard their lives are 50. The underlined saying from Benjamin Franklin “Those things that hurt, instruct” suggests that __________. A. we do not learn from experience B. we do not learn when we are pain C. pain teaches us important lessons D. pain cannot be avoided 四、单词拼写 （共 10 小题；每小题 0.5 分，满分 5 分） 51.

Some students think it’s a good idea to keep pets because many old people who live alone at home can get some comfort from pets. Besides, getting along well with animals will make our life interesting. People who owns pets will have more chances to walk, thus giving them a time to communicate with others. On the contrary, the other students are against the idea. In their opinion, if too many people keep pets at home, it is bad for the environment. What is worse, some pets may make too much noise and even attack people. In addition, it costs a lot of money
to keep pets. I like animals, so I don’t think it’s bad to keep pets at home. But we must take some measures to prevent them from polluting our environment.
