Ⅰ.阅读理解 The summer before my senior year of high school,I was eating in a cafeteria with some other high school students,and one girl asked me,“Do you live in a teepee(圆锥 形帐篷)?”It was such a silly question that,at first,I thought she was joking!I said,“Are you serious?”She said,“Oh,wait,I’m sorry.Is that something I shouldn’t ask?”She wasn’t trying to be rude,so it didn’t bother me.I just said,“No,I have a house with electricity and running water.I’m not disconnected from the world!”But the truth is,I did grow up differently. I’m a Native American,and I’m from a reservation in California.A reservation is a place that’s reserved for Native American tribes(部落) by the federal government. People often have misconceptions about what living on a reservation means.In reality,though,my life probably looks a lot like yours.But there are ways that my life has been different.The reservation is an hour from town,and there’s a big connection to the land.Our house is surrounded by a mountain,a river,and a farm.We have 23 animals including 10 chickens.It’s not just for show!We collect eggs from the chickens,use manure(粪肥) from the animals to fertilize soil,and pick fruits and vegetables from our garden. I’ve also learned how to hunt and fish.When hunting for deer,my tribe has two rules:1)Never shoot a female deer,because she might be pregnant;2)If you kill a deer,find a way to use all of it. Going to college has been a big change for me.There were only 25 people in my graduating class,and now I go to school with thousands.On my reservation,I was surrounded mostly by Natives,and at college,the Native population is only 0.07%.It’s intimidating but also exciting. I’m studying to become a vet—there aren’t any on my reservation.If an animal gets sick,you have to drive an hour to get them help.My goal is to open a veterinary clinic that will help my reservation develop. 1.Why did the girl ask the author if she lived in a teepee? A.Because she was silly. B.Because she liked teepees. C.Because she was just curious. D.Because she was being rude to the author. 2.Life on the reservation where the author grew up is . A.pretty hard B.very boring C.close to nature D.just like city life 3.The two rules mentioned in Paragraph 4 are . A.quite eco-friendly B.frequently broken C.very unreasonable D.difficult to understand 4.The underlined word “intimidating” in Paragraph 5 can best be replaced by “ ”. A.tiring B.annoying C.interesting D.frightening Ⅱ.七选五 Chuck was in my high-school English class.1. So,when he told me he had been accepted into the journalism program at the University of Missouri,I wasn’t surprised. During the first year at college,Chuck stopped by school a few times.We talked about our work together several years before.We had raised money together for twenty-
three sick and abandoned babies.2. It was an activity that in some ways changed our formal relationship into a friendship. In his second year in college,it was discovered that Chuck had lung cancer and had only a short while to live.So he left school and came home to be near to his loved ones. About six weeks later,Chuck died.3. The youngest of nine children,Chuck was talented and full of promise.More importantly,he was a good person,a just man. When I went to his funeral(葬礼),his father asked to speak with me.He told me that before Chuck’s death,he chose six items to bury with him.4. He told me that Chuck had always kept the piece because he liked the message I had written to him at the bottom of the last page.In that little note,I affirmed( 肯定) his talent as a writer and I encouraged him to be responsible for the gift. 5. His taking my note with him forever offered me a great opportunity for influencing students’ lives.I felt inspired with a sense of purpose that was greater than ever:teachers have the power to affect hearts and minds for a long time. A.He was a writer of great promise. B.Chuck helped to raise several thousand dollars. C.Whenever I forget my purpose,I think of Chuck. D.It was a great loss for everyone,especially for his family. E.My spirits were lifted up as Chuck was filled with the joy of life. F.One of them was an essay he had written in my class some years before. G.I was touched and grateful to Chuck who gave me a special gift that would change my life.
