It was my seventh year teaching first grade. One mid-March day, the kids were at break 41 classes, in expectation of the coming carnival at noon when something terrible happened, on a child’s level 42 —someone stole the Twinkie out of Abby’s desk. Irritated, I stopped all morning work, 43 its return. No Twinkie appeared. Five hours passed, but the class still sat with their heads down, listening to me 44 on the importance of honesty and being responsible for one’s own mistakes. I was really sweating it out. Was I 45 ? No, my heart told me. All we needed was the 46 . My afternoon aide arrived. A mother of four, she 47 to take the kids one by one into the hall for questioning. When the time came for 48 to be questioned, it was over within a minute. He came back into the classroom, tears filling his eyes, hands shaking, hanging onto the doorway 49 he’d collapse if he let go. He took deep breaths, trying not to cry. “I 50 the Twinkie. I’m sorry,” he said in a small voice. Then he covered his face with his hands in 51 . I was livid(脸色铁青). We had been lied to for more than five hours, with nothing 52 . Something must be done, so let the ones who 53 throw the first stone. “Does anyone have anything to say to Peter?” I asked. There was silence for at least a minute. Perhaps the kids were 54 their words… Then, one little girl 55 her hand. She stood straight and said in a strong voice, “We forgive you, Peter.” The words echoed through our heads. Forgiveness... one of the last things Jesus taught us as he was dying on the 56 . Forgiveness. Suddenly, all twenty-eight kids raced to Peter and 57 him with hugs and pats on his back, cheers, and laughter. It was like the prodigal son had returned home. I learned that day how forgiveness 58 . How good it feels to say, “I forgive you,” and how 59 it is to hear that you are forgiven. And the Twinkie? Abby never did eat it. She gave it back to Peter with a 60 hug and smile. 41.

A. broad B. sunny C. quick D. warm 第三部分 阅读理解(共 15 小题;每小题 2 分, 满分 30 分) 阅读下列短文, 从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中, 选出最佳选项, 并在答题卡 上将该项涂黑。 A Most job applicants have a general list before a job interview—updating a résumé, ironing a professional suit, rehearsing an explanation for those two years spent after college. However, if tidying up the Facebook profile isn’t on that list, maybe it should be. According to a new study conducted by Harris Interactive for Career Builder.com, 45 percent of employers questioned are using social networks to screen people looking for jobs this year---more than double from a year earlier, when a similar survey found that just 22 percent of employers were researching potential hires on social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn. The study, which questioned 2,667 managers and human resource workers, found that 35 percent of employers decided not to offer a job to a candidate based on the content uncovered on a social networking site. The report showed that Facebook was the most popular online destination for employers to do their online sleuthing(侦查), followed by LinkedIn and MySpace. In addition, 7 percent followed job applicants on Twitter. More than half of the employers who participated in the survey said that provocative(挑衅) photos were the biggest factor contributing to a decision not to hire a potential employee, while 44 percent of employers aimed at references to drinking and drug use as red flags. Other warning signs included bad-mouthing of previous employers and colleagues and poor online communication skills. While most of these may seem like obvious blocks, what consists of alarming behavior to a particular employer? Would photographs of a trip to the beach be considered inappropriate? To be on the safe side, it’s probably wise to use the new privacy settings offered by Facebook to keep everything but the most innocuous (无伤大雅的) content away from the public eye. 61. Your general list before a job interview should include all the following EXCEPT __________. A. rehearsing what the employer would say to you B. preparing appropriate clothes C. tidying up your information on social networks D. a written form of your education and previous jobs 62. Why should the job seekers use the new privacy setting offered by Facebook? A. To keep everything from being seen by others. B. To allow photographs of a trip to the beach seen on line freely. C. To keep the employers from seeing the inappropriate content. D. To allow the employers to see the inappropriate content. B These young men were a different kind of prisoner from those we had seen before. They were brave, hostile(怀敌意的)and aggressive they would not take orders, and shouted “Amandla!” at every opportunity. Their instinct was to confront rather than cooperate. The authorities① did not know how to handle them, and they turned the island upside down. During the Rivonia Trial, I remarked to a security policeman that if the government did not reform itself, the freedom fighters who would take our place② would some day make the authorities miss us. That day had indeed come on Robben Island.

In these young men we saw the angry revolutionary spirit of the times. I had had some warning. On a visit with Winnie a few months before, she had managed to tell me through our coded conversation that there was a rising class of discontented youths③ who were violent and Africanist in beliefs. She said they were changing the nature of the struggle and that I should be aware of them. The new prisoners were shocked by what they considered the inhuman conditions of the island, and said that they could not understand how we could live in such a way. We told them that they should have seen the island in 1964. But they were almost as sceptical of us as they were of the authorities. They chose to ignore our calls for discipline and thought our advice weak and unassertive(不果断). It was obvious that they regarded us, the Rivonia Trialists④, as moderates⑤ (温和派) . After so many years of being branded a radical revolutionary, to be seen as a moderate was a novel and not altogether pleasant feeling. I knew that I could react in one of two ways: I could scold them for their disrespect or I could listen to what they were saying. I chose the latter. Then some of these men, such as Strini Moodley of the South African Students Organization and Saths Cooper of the Black People’s Convention, came into our section, _________. Shortly after their arrival on the island, the commanding officer came and asked me as a favour to address the young men. He wanted me to tell them to behave themselves, to recognize the fact that they were in prison and to accept the discipline of prison life. I told him that I was not prepared to do that. Under the circumstances, they would have regarded me as a follower of the authorities. (---adapted from “Long walk to freedom: The autobiography of Nelson Mandela”) 63. We may infer from the passage all of the following EXCEPT that ___________. A. an angry massive revolution was probably on its way B. these young men were willing to cooperate in face of difficulties C. many were concerned about the influence these young men could make D. the author ’s activities were strictly monitored 64. One sentence is missing in the blank of the passage regarding the author ’s following reactions. Which of the following reactions do you think he would have? A. I tried to calm them down and talked them into behaving. B. I reported to the officers about their dissatisfaction. C. I asked them to tell us about their movement and beliefs. D. I just turned a deaf ear to the young men. 65. Several phrases have been underlined and numbered in the passage; which two of them actually refer to the same people? A.①② B. ②③ C. ③④ D. ⑤① C The event that stands out in my memory happened one morning in 1983 when I was 14 years old. I was at home with my mother, getting ready for the afternoon session of school. I was doing my homework when I heard raised voice. At first I thought nothing of it---customers in the motorcycle shop directly below us often became unruly and loud, but I soon realized this was different. “Quick! Remove the motorcycle from the shop.” someone yelled. Then a thick burning smell filled the air. When I opened the front door of our flat to investigate, a thick cloud of smoke, billowing up from the ground floor, greeted me. The motorcycle shop had caught fire. My mum, who had been working in the kitchen, hurried to the living room. We rushed out

of the door and along the corridor through the smoke. We were heading towards the stairway at the far end of the corridor when Mum stopped in her tracks. She turned around and headed back the way we came. I had no idea what she was doing, but I followed suit. Mum had suddenly remembered the Korean lady in her 70s who lived next door to us, who we called Makcik. Mum began banging on her door, but to no avail. As the smoke thickened around us, I could see many of our neighbors---some still in their pajamas----running for safety. “She would have run for safety like everyone else!” I cried. Mum refused to give up. “I know she is still inside,” she said as she pounded the door. “Go downstairs, Shaji. Go now!” However, frozen with fear, I stood rooted to the spot. By then, both of us were coughing and our eyes were stinging. Time seemed to stand still, though we were probably there for only two or three minutes. Just as I was beginning to choke, the door opened. Makcik stood there, totally confused. Mum was right---she had been unaware of what was happening. Grabbing her hand, Mum led Makcik downstairs and outside to a safe spot where people had gathered to witness the fire. The firemen had just arrived and set about fighting the blaze, which was reaching up to the second floor above the motorcycle shop. Comprehending the gravity of the situation, Makcik broke down. Holding my mother’s hands tightly, and with tears flowing down her cheeks, she spoke to Mum. I could not hear what she said, but there was no mistaking her gratitude. I learned later that Makcik was sleeping when the fire broke out. I dread to think what would have happened if Mum had not turned back for her. Soon the firemen put out the billowing flames. There were no deaths and injuries, though the motorcycle shop was completely destroyed. Although the fire had damaged our corridor badly, it was put out before it could spread into our flat. Our home had been saved, though everything was covered in soot and an awful smell hung in the air. And, sadly, my pet lovebirds were dead. I felt terrible for not saving them in my haste. However, the thought of Mum’s courageous act in saving a human life brought great relief. Years later, I asked Mum about this incident. She said that she was familiar with Makcik’s daily routine and was certain she would still be sleeping. When I asked if she was scared, Mum replied, “When a loved one is in danger, the thought of fear never crosses the mind.” During my school days, whenever I wrote an essay about courageous deeds, I always focused on soldiers risking their lives to save others. It never occurred to me to write my mum who had, in her determined way, saved our elderly neighbor. Today I know better. Maria Thomas, a timid and modest lady, someone who would not be mistaken for a superhero, had turned out to be my real hero. 66. It can be inferred from the passage that _____. A. the author knew nothing about the Korean lady living next door B. no damage was caused because the fire was put out immediately C. firemen made no attempt to rescue those trapped in the building D. makcik survived the big fire owing to my mum’s timely rescue 67. Receiving no response from Makcik, Mum refused to leave because _____. A. she was sure that the fire wouldn’t threaten her life B. she knew for sure Makcik was indoors, sleeping C. she was informed that Makcik was in desperate need of help

D. she was convinced that Makcik was too scared to move 68. What does the underlined part “to no avail” most probably mean? A. to one’s disappointment B. worse still C. without success D. in one’s absence 69. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. My mother: a superhero B. The fire: an unforgettable experience C. The firefighting: a thrilling story D. My neighbor: a narrow escape D Thirty-five years ago, a hundred tennis-playing children were tested for general athleticism. One girl was rated by the psychologist leading the analysis as “the perfect tennis talent”. The girl’s name? Steffi Graf, who went on to win 22 grand slams(大满贯). I was reminded of Graf’s inborn sporting talent during a conversation with the geneticist Matt Ridley. We were discussing the common argument that greatness, even genius, is the result of 10,000 hours of dedicated practice. If nurture (培育) is so important and nature such an irrelevance, then an unavoidable question follows: how many people, of all those born in 1756, had the potential, if they were given the right opportunities, to be as good as Mozart? Or how many women, of all those born in 1969, had the potential to become as good at tennis as Graf? According to the logic that a genius hides in all of us, the answer must lie somewhere between “most” and “many”. Ridley’s answers were a bit different: four Mozarts and about 30 Grafs. But his answer rang true. The surprise here is that the idea of talent finds itself attacked by those who believe in nurture alone. Acknowledging a role for genes, any role, can feel almost immoral. When I was quizzed about the genetic arguments in my book “Luck”, the interviewer sounded surprised --even though he agreed --- that I dared to take on the anti-genes industry. Some people suggest that it is a short jump from recognising the existence of genetic talent to believing in eugenics (优生学). Personally, I’m pretty confident we can distinguish between the two. The role of inborn talent in sport is actually becoming powerful out on the pitch. In the late 1970s and 1980s, professionalism wasn’t yet popular in tennis. John McEnroe enjoyed going for a burger much more than going to the gym. It fell to the underrated Ivan Lendl, a less talented all-round player than his rivals, to dedicate his whole life to the pursuit of self-improvement. To protect his joints, Lendl pioneered aerobic training on bikes rather than road running. He even built a similar court at the US Open, in his own back garden. Less gifted than McEnroe, Lendl relied on being fitter and more prepared. He used nurture, if you like, to make up for a shortfall in nature. And it worked. Lendl overtook his rivals and spent 270 weeks as the world number one. One up for nurture. But what if all the top players hire nutritionists, masseurs (按摩师) and specialist coaches? That is what happened within 20 years. The point was that for 302 weeks between 2004 and 2009, the world number one was Roger Federer, widely rated the most talented player ever. This view hardly needs support, but if you’re sceptical, perhaps you can take his greatest rival’s word for it. “His DNA”, Rafael Nadal says, “seems perfectly adapted to tennis.” During the amateur age and the early decades of professionalism, it was possible to gain a significant edge through absolute hard work. But when a sport becomes fully professional and global, and nurture equals, nature once again has the upper hand. In youth sport, evidence is increasing that the 10,000-hour practice, based on a questionable experiment of the early 1990s, is now doing serious harm. First, it has misled kids who end up depressed and confused because they did not, after all, become the new Tiger

www.xiangpi.com

橡皮网在线组卷系统

Woods, despite putting in the hours. Secondly, it has strengthened the false beliefs of another type of tiger: the mother variety. Parents increasingly view forcing their children into extreme athletic training as a reasonable pension plan for themselves. Expect future tensions here. Thirdly, specializing is proving to produce opposite effects, either entirely irrelevant or actively harmful. When teenagers are still growing and muscles developing, they are better off having a broad sporting education—just as their minds develop better on a varied diet of academic subjects. None of this denies the importance of hard work. All sporting stories rely on the subtle interaction between nature and nurture. But success relies just as much on finding your right lock for your key, as it does on perseverance. 70. What can be inferred from Paragraph 2 to Paragraph 4? A. All of us can be genius through practice. B. Greatness is grown rather than born. C. Nurture accounts for Graf’s greatness. D. Nature matters a lot in achieving one’s potential. 71. The interviewer felt surprised that _____. A. some people are against the idea of the talent B. the writer denied the genetic role C. genetic talent exists along with eugenics D. the writer worked in an industry of anti-genetics 72. The purpose of using examples of John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl in Paragraph 6 is to show that _______. A. nurture can compensate for the lack of talent B. inborn talent is vital to winning sport C. both McEnroe and Lendl were the great players D. Lendl was less talented but more prepared than MeEnroe 73. The underlined phrase “has the upper hand” in paragraph 8 possibly means _____. A. is less important B. gives some support C. has an advantage D. is easily available 74. What’s the harm of 10,000-hour practice? A. All the kids’ hard work was in vain. B. Kids’ mental growth may suffer from early specialization. C. Both kids and parents may become new tigers. D. Parent-child relations may become tense. 75. What’s the main idea of the passage? A. Success depends on the balance between nature and nurture. B. Nurture outweighs nature in sporting. C. All the world-class tennis players have great talent. D. Talent plays a decisive role in athleticism. 第四部分 任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 l 分,满分 l0 分) 请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 词。 注意:每个空格只填一个单词。 Around the world, more and more young people are failing to find stable jobs and live independently. A new study from IIASA population researchers explains why. The number of young people who fail to transition from childhood to independent adulthood is growing – more and more young people find themselves without full-time jobs, relying on their parents, or staying longer in school. These changes can be traced changes in the

www.xiangpi.com

global labor force and education according to a new study published today in the Finnish Yearbook of Population Research. “Young adults are doing increasingly worse economically, in spite of living in wealthy regions of the world,” says IIASA population expert Vegard Skirbekk. “At the same time, older adult age groups have been doing increasingly better.” Skirbekk, along with IIASA researchers Warren Sanderson and Marcin Stonawski conducted the study in order to examine the common factors that help young people transition to adulthood. They call the problem, “Young Adult Failure to Thrive Syndrome.” While the phenomenon had been recognized in individual countries, including Italy, France, Spain, and Japan, explanations have often focused on recent causes such as government fiscal (财 政的) difficulties. But the new study shows that failure to thrive can be traced to global economic and demographic(人口统计的)shifts beginning in the 1980’s. The study finds that failure to thrive can be tied to three major economic factors worldwide. First, an increasingly globalized labor force means that workers can move more easily between countries. Second, education levels have soared around the world, meaning many more workers are available for skilled positions. Third, more women have joined the labor force. All these factors mean more competition for jobs, particularly for young people who have little practical experience. In addition to changes in labor supply, technological changes have both created and destroyed jobs, with a trend towards fewer industrial jobs and more service sector jobs. “These changes mean that even as economic conditions have improved for some in the population, young people are worse off today than they were 20 years ago,” says Sanderson. The researchers say that such economic disadvantages also have an effect on demographic questions such as fertility(生育)rates and family formation, as many young people cannot start families until later in life for lack of enough money.

Never before have Chinese readers had such easy access to a wide selection ranging from classical Chinese poetry to the top titles on Amazon’s best-sellers list. However, while the supply of books has exploded in China in recent decades, people’s interest in them has not kept up. According to a survey result published by the Chinese Academy of Press and Publication in April, Chinese people read 4.39 books per capita in the past year, a figure that trails far behind major developed countries; for example, the average American read 7, the average French and Japanese person 8.4, and the average South Korean 11. And, on average, Chinese people allocated just over 15 minutes a day to reading, compared to almost 100 to watching television and over 45 for using the Internet. An amazing number of the Chinese are turning away from reading books. Zhang Lijia, a freelance writer based in Beijing, thinks the days when friends got together to discuss the books they were reading are gone. “People are too restless, too utilitarian (功利的),” she reflects. “You need some peace in mind in order to be able to sit down with a book.” Zhang’s opinion is echoed by a number of longtime professionals in the book industry. “Best sellers in China today consist mainly of child-rearing manuals (育儿手册), cookbooks, health and fitness guides, test-preparation books, thrillers, and romance novels.” said He Xiongfei, a well-known publisher of popular books. “Some of them buy books, but this is just for the purpose of killing time or for test preparation. They are looking for things they think are useful to them. They are not reading.” He added. 【写作内容】 以约 30 个词概括上文的主要内容,然后以约 120 个词就“阅读的意义”这一话题发表你 的看法,并包括以下要点: 1. 你认为现在中国人不如以前喜欢阅读的原因是什么? 2. 你觉得阅读重要吗?为什么? 3. 以你或他人的经历举例论证你的观点。 【写作要求】 1. 在作文中可以使用自己亲身的经历或虚构的故事,也可以参照阅读材料的内容,但

Some of them read just to kill time or prepare for the tests rather than enjoy the reading itself. As far as I am concerned, Chinese people don’t read as much as they used to for the following reasons. For one thing, people are so occupied with heavy work and life that they find it hard to enjoy reading quietly; for another, people in China only read when they need something for practical use or something relaxing to keep them away from working pressure. I personally believe that reading is of great significance in our life. It not only provides a source of satisfaction and pleasure, but also serves as a foundation of information and knowledge. Besides, people can read to develop thinking skills and broaden the horizon as well. I benefit a lot through reading English novels. Not only has it brought me much fun, my language proficiency has also been enhanced.
