第三部分:阅读理解 (20小题;每小题1.5, 满分30)

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(ABCD)中,选出最佳选项。

A

When I met him, I had a lot of anger inside of me. I’ve lived my whole life in Spanish Harlem, but in my neighborhood, there are shoot-ups all the time. I know kids who have been shot or beaten up. I have friends who ended up in prison. I could have ended up that way, too, but Mr. Clark wouldn’t let that happen.

Mr. Clark worked long hours, making sure I did my work. My grades rose. In fact, the scores of our whole class rose. One day, he took our class to see The Phantom of the Opera, and it was the first time some kids had ever been out of Harlem. Before the show, he treated us to dinner at a restaurant and taught us not to talk with our mouths full. We did not want to let him down.

Mr. Clark was selected as Disney’s 2000 Teacher of the Year. He said he would draw three names out of a hat; those students would go with him to Los Angles to get the award. But when the time came to draw names, Mr. Clark said, “You’re all going.”

On graduation day, there were a lot of tears. We didn’t want his class to end. In 2001, he moved to Atlanta, but he always kept in touch. He started giving lectures about education, and wrote a bestselling book based on his classroom rules, The Essential 55. In 2003, Mr. Clark took some of us on a trip to South Africa to deliver school supplies and visit orphanages (孤儿院). It was the most amazing experience of my life. It’s now my dream to one day start a group of women’s clubs,

helping people from all backgrounds.

56. Without Mr. Clark, the writer _________.

   A. might have put into prison                B. might not have won the prize

   C. might have joined a women’s club   D. might not have moved to Atlanta

57. The Essential 55 is ___________.

   A. a show     B. a speech              C. a classroom rule  D. a book

58. How many students’ names were finally drawn out of a hat by Mr. Clark?

   A. None        B. Three                   C. Fifty-five               D. All

59. In the passage, the writer intends to tell us that ___________.

   A. Mr. Clark went to South Africa because he liked traveling

   B. Mr. Clark helped to set up a group of women’s clubs

   C. a good teacher can raise his or her students’ score

   D. a good teacher has a good influence on his or her students

60. What is the writer’s attitude towards Mr. Clark?

   A. He speaks highly of Mr. Clark.

   B. He looks down upon Mr. Clark.

   C. He doesn’t show his attitude towards Mr. Clark.

   D. He takes a neutral (中立的) attitude towards Mr. Clark.

B

The evidence for harmony may not be obvious in some families. But it seems that four out of five young people now get on with their parents, which is the opposite of the popularly-held image (形象) of unhappy teenagers locked in their room after endless family quarrels.

An important new study into teenage attitudes surprisingly shows that their family life is more harmonious than it had ever been in the past. “We were surprised by just how positive (肯定的) today’s young people seem to be about their families,” said one number of the research team. “They’re expected to be rebellious (叛逆的)  and selfish but actually they have other things on their minds: they want a car and material goods, and they worry about whether school is serving them well. There’s more negotiation (商议) and discussion between parents and children, and children expect to take part in the family decision-making process. They don’t want to rock the boat (捣乱). ”

So it seems that this generation of parents is much more likely than parents of 30 years ago to treat their children as friends. “My parents are happy to discuss things with me and willing to listen to me,” says 17-year-old Daniel Lazall. “I always tell the when I’m going out clubbing. As long as they know what I’m doing, they’re fine with me.” Susan Crome, who is now 21, agrees. “Looking back on the last 10 years, there was a lot of what you could call negotiation. For example, as long as I’d done all my homework, I could go out on a Saturday night. But I think my grandparents were a lot stricter with my parents than that.”

Maybe this positive view of family life should not be unexpected. It is possible that the idea of teenage rebellion is not rooted in real facts. A researcher comments (评论), “Our surprise that teenagers say they get along well with their parents comes because of a brief period in our social history when teenagers were regarded as different beings. But that idea of rebelling and breaking away from their parents really only happened during that one time in the 1960s when everyone rebelled. The normal situation throughout history has been a smooth change from helping out with the family business to taking it over. ”

61. What is the popular if the teenager today?

A. They worry about school.

B. They dislike living with their parents.

C. They have to be locked in to avoid troubles.

D. They quarrel a lot with other family members.

62. The study shows that teenagers don’t want to __________.

   A. share family responsibility   B. cause trouble in their families

   C. go boating with their family  D. make family decisions

63. Compared with parents of 30 years ago, today’s parents ____________.

   A. go to clubs more often with their children

   B. are much stricter with their children

   C. care less about their children’s life

   D. give their children more freedom

64. According to the writer, teenage rebellion __________.

   A. may be a false belief                         B. is common nowadays

   C. existed only in the 1960s            D. resulted from changes in families

65. What is the passage mainly about?

   A. Negotiation in family.                 B. Education in family.

   C. Harmony in family.                      D. Teenage trouble in family.

C

  It was a winter morning, just a couple of weeks before Christmas 2005. While most people were warming up their cars, Trevor, my husband, had to get up early to ride his bike four kilometers away from home to work. On arrival, he parked his bike outside the back door as he usually does. After putting in 10 hours of labor, he returned to find his bike gone.

  The bike, a black Kona 18 speed, was our only transport. Trevor used it to get to work, putting in 60-hour weeks to support his young family. And the bike was also used to get groceries (食品杂货), saving us from having to walk along long distances from where we live.

  I was so sad that someone would steal our bike that I wrote to the newspaper and told them our story. Shortly after that, several people in our area offered to help. One wonderful stranger even bought a bike, then called my husband to pick it up. Once again my husband had a way to get to and from his job. It really is an honor that a complete stranger would go out of their way for someone they have never met before.

   People say that a smile can be passed from one person to another, but acts of kindness from strangers are even more so. This experience has had a spreading effect in our lives because it strengthened our faith in humanity (人性) as a whole. And it has influenced us to be more mindful of ways we, too, can share with others. No matter how big or how small, an act of kindness shows that someone cares. And the results can be everlasting.

66. Why was the bike so important to the couple?

   A. They used it for work and daily life.             B. It was their only possession (财产).

   C. It was a nice Kona 18 speed.                         D. The man’s job was bike racing.

67. We can infer from the passage that __________.

   A. the couple worked 60 hours a week

   B. people were busy before Christmas

   C. the stranger brought over the bike

   D. life was hard for the young family

68. How did people get to know the couple’s problem?

   A. From a stranger.                                     B. From a newspaper.

   C. From TV news                                        D. From radio broadcasts.

69. What do the couple learn from their experience?

   A. Strangers are usually of little help.                   B. One should take care of their bike.

   C. News reports make people famous.               D. An act of kindness can mean a lot.

70. From this story, we can see humanity is __________.

   A. selfish                                                      B. commercial

C. kind                                                           D. cold-hearted

D

Of all systems of symbols, language is the most highly developed. It has been pointed out that human beings, by agreement, can make anything stand for anything. Human beings have agreed, in the course of centuries of mutual (相互的) dependency, to let the various noises that they can produce with their lungs, throats, tongues, teeth, and lips systematically stand for certain happenings in their nervous system. We call that system of agreements language.

    There is no necessary connection between the symbol and that which it stands for. Just as social positions can be symbolized by feathers worn on the head, by gold on the watch chain, or by a thousand other things according to the culture we live in, so the fact of being hungry can be symbolized by a thousand different noises according to the culture we live in.

     However obvious these facts may appear at first glance, they are actually not so obvious as they seem except when we take special pains to think about the subject. Symbols and the things they stand for are independent of each other, yet we all have a way of feeling as if, and sometimes acting as if, there were necessary connections. For example, there are people who feel that foreign languages are unreasonable by nature: foreigners have such funny names for things, and why can’t they call things by their right names? This feeling exhibits itself most strongly in those English and American tourists who seem to believe that they can make the natives of any country understand English if they shout loud enough. Like the little boy who is reported to have said: “Pigs are called pigs because they are such dirty animals,” they feel that the symbol is inherently (内在地) connected in some way with the things symbolized.

71. Language is a highly developed system of symbols because human beings _______.

      A. have made use of language for centuries

B. use our nervous system to support language

C. have made various noises stand for any events

D. can make anything stand for anything by agreement

72. What can we conclude from Paragraph 2?

A. Different noises may mean different things.

B. Our culture determines what a symbol stands for.

C. The language we use symbolizes our social positions.

D. Our social positions determine the way we are dressed.

73. In Paragraph 3, the underlined words “take special pains” probably means “______”.

A. try very hard                       B. take our time

C. are very unhappy               D. feel especially painful

74. The example of the little boy is used to show that ____________.

   A. adults often learn from their young

   B. “pig” is a dirty word because pigs are dirty

   C. words are not connected with the things they stand for

   D. people sometimes have wrong idea about how language works

75. What does the writer of this passage think of language?

   A. appreciative                                B. depreciative

   C. neutral                                         D. unknown

第五部分:任务型阅读(共10小题,满分10分)

认真阅读下面短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入最恰当的单词。注意:每空只填一词。

Telephone, television, radio, telegraph and the Internet all help people communicate with each other. As a result, ideas and news of events spread quickly all over the world. For example, within seconds, people can know the results of an election in another country. An international football match comes into the homes of everyone with a television set. News of a disaster such as an earthquake or a flood can bring help from distant countries within hours. Help is on the way. Because of modern technology like the satellites that travel around the world, information travels fast.

How has this speed of communication changed the world? To many people, the world has become smaller. Of course this does not mean that the world is actually physically smaller. It means that the world seems smaller. Two hundred years ago, communication between the continents took a long time. All news was carried on ships that took weeks or even months to cross the ocean. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, it took six weeks for news from Europe to reach America. This time difference influenced people’s actions. For example, one battle, or fight, in the War of 1812 between England and the United States could have been avoided. A peace agreement had already been signed. Peace was made in England, but the news of peace took six weeks to reach America. During these six weeks, the large and serious Battle of New Orleans was fought. Many people lost their lives after a peace treaty had been signed. In the past, communication took much more time than it does now.

There was a good reason why the world seemed so much larger than it does today.

Dear Editor,

    The students of Class 3 held a discussion about whether students should live in the dormitory or not last Wednesday afternoon. Different students have different opinions.

Some students hold the view that students should live in the dormitory while studying at school. The reasons are as follows. First, living in the dormitory can help to develop our ability to do on our own. Second, we can learn how to get along with others while living together in the dormitory. At the same time true friendship can be cultivated. Third, time can be used to the full and a good habit of study and life can be formed, benefiting our future development.

However, others think students should not live in the dormitory while studying at school. First, the time we can use freely is very little, which is not beneficial to our personality. Second, time is not enough when the study burden is heavy. Finally, if we go home , we can get concern from parents and communicate with parents.

As for myself, I think students should live in the dormitory while studying at school. Besides the reasons mentioned above, when we meet with difficulties, we should come over them ourselves.

Besides, by living in the dormitory, we can learn how to live independently.
