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 hanging up with the teacher. 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. 1.The coffee shop is mostly run by____________. A. all the students B. all the teachers
C. students with special learning needs. 2. When does the coffee shop close? A. In the early morning. C. At 9 a.m. 3. The Dixie PIT program was introduced in order to A. raise money for school affairs B. do some research on nutrition C. supply teachers with drinks D. develop students’ practical skills B
D. some special-education teachers B. At 9:20 a.m. D. in the afternoon .
Picture the scene: You come home after work feeling too exhausted to cook –only to find a delicious meal worthy of a Michelin-starred restaurant waiting for you. It sounds like a fantasy, but it could be about to come true thanks to a robot chef developed by British scientists. Those scientists have come up with a set of robotic arms so smart that they are capable of cooking meals all by themselves. The device will be sold from as early as 2017 as part of a purpose-built high-tech kitchen. Scientists at Moley Robotics spent almost 18 years developing the hands. According to its creators, the arms can chop, stir, whisk and baste well enough to recreate almost anything you would care to eat, whether it is a simple home-cooked supper, or a complicated creation designed by a world-class chef. The hands move a little slowly, hovering strangely above the work surface whenever they are not busy, but they imitate human movements closely enough that they can do things such as wiping a spoon on the edge of a pan to prevent drips. Mr Oleynik, who is leading the project, said, ―All the things which are possible with the hand are possible here. There is no limitation. A lot of people want to go to Michelin-starred restaurants, but they are quite expensive and may be quite far from the home. This is an opportunity for people to enjoy very good food, and for a reasonable price. ‖ The only cuisine that is off the robot’s menu at the moment is sushi, which requires extremely steady pressure and nimble fingers to make, but the team plan to conquer that as well by the time it goes on sale. 4. People go to Michelin-starred restaurants in order to______. A. appreciate car tires. B. enjoy delicious meals C. see the new robot chefs D. escape from work 5. What does the underlined word ―they‖ in Paragraph 2 refer to? A. British scientists B. The robot chef’s arms C. Cooks at restaurants D. Household wives
6. Which kind of food CAN’T the robot chef cook at present? A. Bread B. Beef C. Sushi D. Sandwich 7. What can we infer from the passage? A. Hands of a robot chef can perform exactly like a cook. B. Robot chefs are available at shopping malls. C. Michelin-starred restaurants are suitable for many people. D. It is uncertain when the robot can cook all kinds of food. C A tender woman, or an independent one, which one would you prefer? A recent research shows that most people would choose the latter. This type of woman is called a nühanzi (―tough woman‖). Experts believe these characteristics have social and psychological roots among young females in China. Su Hao’s friends all call her a tough woman, because she can finish tough tasks usually carried out by men. For example, she carries 10-litre water to her dormitory on the 5th floor. ―I depend on no one but myself,‖ she says. According to a recent survey by China Youth Daily, tough women have become rather common in society. Of the 21,265 respondents, 78.5 percent said they are familiar with a tough woman. About 50 percent said they like women with tough characteristics, while less than 29 percent expressed the opposite view. Why are tough women gaining popularity? Shen Meng, a psychological consultant, believes the fierce competition in society is contributing to this trend. ―Women are often in a disadvantaged position compared to men,‖ Shen says. ―In order to survive, they have to be independent, strong and tough.‖ Liu Xiaolin, professor of psychology at Wuhan Mental Health Center, believes tough women are brought up this way. They are often on close relationship with their fathers, who teach their daughters to be brave and decisive,‖ he says. As a result, these women are more likely to be psychologically healthy and more tolerant to stress, according to Liu. Though Liu believes that this is a good trend, Hu Shenzhi, a psychologist at the Guangdong Sunflower Counseling Center, says the popularity of tough woman indicates an unclear line between gender identities, which can lead to relationship problems. ―Some women with characteristics that differ from the traditional female image may have a difficult time finding Mr Right,‖ he says. ―Even if they get married, their manly characteristics might cause family conflicts. 8. Which of the followings doesn’t belong to the characteristics of a tough woman? A. She is independent of others in daily life. B. She is soft and tender to others. C. She is more tolerant to stress. D. She can solve problems usually for men. 9. How many respondents like tough women? A. about 10,600. B. about 16,700. C. 21,265. D. about 6,200 10. Why are there more tough women nowadays?
A. Because tough women are more lovely. B. Because more women want to be independent. C. Because girls often love fathers more. D. Because of the fierce competition in society. 11. What problems may tough women have in their life? A. It’s difficult for them to be friends. B. They often suffer gender confusion. C. They may have difficulty with marriage. D. They have different characteristics form traditional female images. D Our ―Mommy and Me‖ time began two years ago. My next-door neighbor and fellow mother, Christie, and I were out in our front yards, watching seven children of age 6 and under ride their bikes up and down. ―I wish I could take one of my children out alone,‖ said Christie. Then we worked out a plan: When Christie takes one of her children out, I’ll watch her other three. And when she watches two of mine, I’ll take someone out. The children were extremely quick to accept the idea of ―Mommy and Me‖ time. Christie’s daughter, McKenzie, went first. When she returned, the other children asked her tons of questions. McKenzie was smiling broadly. Christie looked refreshed and happy. ―She’s like a different child when there’s no one else around,‖ Christie shared with me quickly. With her mother all to herself, McKenzie didn’t have to make an effort to gain attention. Just as Christie had noticed changes in McKenzie, I also discovered something different in each of my children during our alone times. For example, I am always surprised when my daughter, who is seldom close to me, holds my hand frequently. My stuttering （口吃的） son, Tom, doesn’t stutter once during our activities since he doesn’t have to struggle for a chance to speak. And the other son, Sam, who’s always a follower when around other children shines as a leader during our times together. The ―Mommy and Me‖ time allows us to be simply alone and away with each child ---talking, sharing, and laughing, which has been the biggest gain. Every child deserves to be an only child at least once in a while. 12. What is the text mainly about? A. The advantage of spending time with one child at a time . B. The experience of the only child being with mother. C. The happy life of two families. D. The basic needs of children. 13. Right after McKenzie came back, the other children were _____________. A. happy B. friendly C. regretful D. curious 14. What is one of the changes the author finds in her children? A. The daughter acts like a leader. B. Sam holds her hand more often.
C. Tom has less difficulty in speaking. D. The boys become better followers. 15. The author seems to believe that ___________. A. having brothers and sisters is fun B. every child needs parents’ full attention C. it’s tiring to look after three children D. parents should watch others’ children 第二节 （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为 多余选项。
