It is always wonderful to have 36 students visit us and share the successes they have achieved. And those glorious moments, when we can instantly see the influence we have on a student, fuel us to continue making connections hoping to 37 in the life of every child. As a music teacher for twenty-seven years, I have always known that music 38 the soul. It can 39 all kinds of barriers to reach students in a very special way. It can be the 40 for each child to find their light. I would like to share a story about it. For a few years I was blessed with the opportunity to teach 41 students one afternoon a week. One of my most 42 students was a five-year-old girl called Vanessa, who had difficulty walking, and could not speak. We 43 sat on the floor for our music lessons and Vanessa liked to sit on my lap. One of her favorite songs was “John the Rabbit.” It was a call and response song where I sang the call and the students 44 twice while singing the repeating phrase, “Oh, yes!” Vanessa liked to 45 her hands together with mine and clap with me. We probably performed that song during every class, Vanessa and I clapping together. But she 46 said or sang a word. One day late in the school year, when the song was finished, Vanessa turned around, looked me dead in the eye, clapped her tiny hands twice and said the words “Oh, yes!” I opened my mouth in ___47___ and for that moment I was the one who could not speak. When my heart 48 started beating again, I looked over at the assistant teacher to find her also 49 . Through music, we had made an awesome connection. Several years later, I passed Vanessa on the street in town. I stopped my car and waved to say hello. She waved back with a big 50 on her face and then clapped her hands twice,
imitating the song we had 51 so many times in our music class. This precious little girl, 52 her connection with music, left an impression on me that will last forever. Every child has the 53 to learn and grow. It is up to us as educators to 54 the way to reach each and every one of our students. We all must find each child’s 55 . 36. A. late B. former C. recent D. present 37. A. make it B. make sense C. make a mess D. make a difference 38. A. touches B. saves C. abandons D. feels 39. A. get across B. cut down C. take over D. break through 40. A. means B. direction C. process D. companion 41. A. disabled B. normal C. outgoing D. junior 42. A. awful B. elegant C. memorable D. sensitive 43. A. partly B. hardly C. nearly D. mostly 44. A. sang B. whispered C. yelled D. clapped 45. A. strike B. put C. hit D. shake 46. A. ever B. never C. still D. even 47. A. horror B. delight C. astonishment D. embarrassment 48. A. immediately B. completely C. slowly D. finally 49. A. scared B. breathless C. speechless D. clumsy 50. A. greeting B. smile C. expression D. affection 51. A. performed B. operated C. trained D. recorded 52. A. upon B. through C. from D. beyond 53.

No, I didn't set a foot on your house, but from the condition of your dog, I can imagine what it looks like... The word" rubbish" comes to mind. I found her along a road, with a heavy chain wrapped around her neck, still attached to rotten boards from her doghouse. Not only did I know that most of the town people had already ignored her, judging by the place where I found her, but I knew that if she had gotten into the woods, the "cross" that she dragged behind her would have wrapped itself around a tree until starvation or thirst killed her. She has a beautiful name now. Already in the first week she has come to look more like she should. Her eyes sparkle and she has learned to wag her tail in greeting. She has stopped flinching (畏缩) when I make a sudden movement, because she knows now that I won' t beat her. In fact, she rarely leaves my side. She's even become brave enough to bark at a cat and today I looked out of the window as she attempted to play with other dogs. No, it’s clear that she does not miss you or her former life on a chain. It' s not clear yet whether she'll remain here or whether I'll find her a loving home where she can count on more individual attention than I can give her, but one thing is certain, this is a bit of stolen" property" which is never returning to you. So sue（起诉）me, accuse me, plead with the court that she is rightfully yours... I' m convinced that this is the best" crime" I've ever committed.
Hardly anything has pleased me more than the day when I stole your dog. I need only look into her beautiful brown eyes to know that she'd defend my decision with her life. If we have one prayer, it is that you will not replace her, and if we have one special day to celebrate together, it is the day I stole your dog and the day she stole my heart. 56. What's the author's attitude towards the former owner of the dog? A. Puzzled. B. Angry. C. Shocked. D. Satisfied. 57. It can be inferred from the passage that____________. A. the dog is not lovely B. the dog tried to find a kind master C. the dog was treated badly by its former master D. the author will be charged with stealing the dog 58. What did the author think of his theft? A. He was afraid of being punished. B. He thought he had to do it. C. He believed that the law would allow him to do so. D. He did it with pride. 59. All the following statements show us the dog’s recovery from her nature except ____ A. not missing her former master B. barking at a cat C. playing with other dogs D. waving her tail to make greetings B Culture is one of the most challenging elements of the international marketplace. This system of learned behavior patterns characteristic of the members of a given society is constantly shaped by a set of dynamic variables: language, religion, values and attitudes, manners and customs, aesthetics, technology, education, and social institutions. To cope with this system, an international manager needs both factual and interpretive knowledge of culture. To some extent, the factual knowledge can be learned; its interpretation comes only through experience. The most complicated problems in dealing with the cultural environment lie in the fact that one cannot learn culture—one has to live it. Two schools of thought exist in the business world on how to deal with cultural diversity. One is that business is business the world around, following the model of Pepsi and McDonald’s. In some cases, globalization is a fact of life; however, cultural differences are still far from converging (会合). The other school proposes that companies must adapt business approaches to individual cultures. Setting up policies and procedures in each country has been compared to an organ transplant; the critical question centers around acceptance or rejection. The major challenge to the international manager is to make sure that rejection is not a result of cultural myopia(近视) or even blindness. Fortune examined the international performance of a dozen large companies that earn 20 percent or more of their revenue overseas. The internationally successful companies all share an important quality: patience. They have not rushed into situations but rather built their operations carefully by following the most basic business principles. These principles are to know your adversary(对手), know your audience, and know your customer. 60. According to the author, the model of Pepsi__________. A. is in line with the theories that the business is business the world around B. is different from the model of McDonald’s C. shows the reverse of globalization D. has converged cultural differences
61. The two schools of thought__________. A. both propose that companies should adapt business approaches to individual cultures B. both advocate that different policies be set up in different countries C. both admit the existence of cultural diversity in business world D. both A and B 62. This article is supposed to be most useful for those _________. A. who are interested in researching the topic of cultural diversity B. who have connections to more than one type of culture C. who want to travel abroad D. who want to run business on International Scale C Pacing and Pausing Sara tried to befriend her old friend Steve's new wife, but Betty never seemed to have anything to say. While Sara felt Betty didn't hold up her end of the conversation, Betty complained to Steve that Sara never gave her a chance to talk. The problem had to do with expectations about pacing and pausing. Conversation is a turn-taking game. When our habits are similar, there's no problem. But if our habits are different, you may start to talk before I'm finished or fail to take your turn when I'm finished. That's what was happening with Betty and Sara. It may not be coincidental that Betty, who expected relatively longer pauses between turns, is British, and Sara, who expected relatively shorter pauses, is American. Betty often felt interrupted by Sara. But Betty herself became an interrupter and found herself doing most of the talking when she met a visitor from Finland. And Sara had a hard time cutting in on some speakers from Latin America or Israel. The general phenomenon, then, is that the small conversation techniques, like pacing and pausing, lead people to draw conclusions not about conversational style but about personality and abilities. These habitual differences are often the basis for dangerous stereotyping (思维定式). And these social phenomena can have very personal consequences. For example, a woman from the southwestern part of the US went to live in an eastern city to take up a job in personnel. When the Personnel Department got together for meetings, she kept searching for the right time to break in --- and never found it. Although back home she was considered outgoing and confident, in Washington she was viewed as shy and retiring. When she was evaluated at the end of the year, she was told to take a training course because of her inability to speak up. That's why slight differences in conversational style --- tiny little things like microseconds of pause --- can have a great effect on one's life. The result in this case was a judgment of psychological problems --- even in the mind of the woman herself, who really wondered what was wrong with her and registered for assertiveness training. 63. What did Sara think of Betty when talking with her? A. Betty was talkative. B. Betty was an interrupter. C. Betty did not take her turn. D. Betty paid no attention to Sara. 64. According to the passage, who are likely to expect the shortest pauses between turns? A. Americans. B. Israelis. C. The British. D. The Finns. 65. We can learn from the passage that ______. A. communication breakdown results from short pauses and fast pacing B. women are unfavorably stereotyped in eastern cities of the US C. one's inability to speak up is culturally determined sometimes
D. one should receive training to build up one's confidence 66. The underlined word "assertiveness" in the last paragraph probably means ______. A. being willing to speak one's mind B. being able to increase one's power C. being ready to make one's own judgment D. being quick to express one's ideas confidently D Books are not Nadia Konyk’s thing. Her mother, hoping to attract her, brings them home from the library, but Nadia rarely shows an interest. Instead, like so many other teenagers, Nadia, 15, is addicted to the Internet. She regularly spends at least six hours a day in front of the computer. Nadia checks her e-mail and reads careful through myyearbook.com, a social networking site, reading messages or posting updates on her mood. She searches from music videos on youtube.com and logs onto gaiaonline.com, a role-playing site where members exchange identities as cartoon characters. But she spends most of her time on quizilla.com or fanfiction.net, reading and commenting on stories written by other users and based on books, television shows or movies. Her mother, Deborah Konyk, would prefer that Nadia read books for a change. But at this point, Ms. Konyk said, “I’m just pleased that she reads something anyway.” Children like Nadia lie at the heart of a passionate（狂热的）debate about just what it means to read in the digital age. As teenagers’ scores on standardized reading tests have declined, some argue that the hours spent surfing the Internet is the enemy of reading — reducing literacy, destroying attention spans and a valuable common culture that exists only through the reading of books. But others say the Internet has created a new kind of reading, one that schools and society should not discount. The Web inspires a teenager like Nadia, who might otherwise spend most of his leisure time watching television, to read and write. Even talented book readers like Zachary Sims, 18, of Old Greenwich, Conn., carve the ability to quickly find different points of view on a subject and talk with others online. Some children with dyslexia （诵读困难） other learning difficulties, like Hunter Gaudet, 16, of Somers, Conn., or have found it far more comfortable to search and read online. 67. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 1 means ____________. A. Nadia prefers not to be a writer B. Nadia doesn’t like to buy books C. Nadia treats reading books as a piece of cake D. Nadia shows no interest in reading books 68. To act as a character, Konyk will log onto _______________. A. gaiaonline.com B. youtube.com C. quizilla.com D. myyearbook.com 69. The example given in the last paragraph are used to prove _________. A. reading online is the enemy of reading books B. reading online may cause difficulty in learning C. it is convenient and comfortable to read online D. there is no pleasure to enjoy reading online 70. What might be the most suitable title for the passage? A. Are you tired of reading books in the information society? B. Do you like reading books? C. What does reading mean in the digital age? D. Are you reading online?
第二卷（非选择题，共 35 分）
第四部分 任务型阅读（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 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 1 个最恰当的单词。 注意：每个空格只填 1 个单词。 Simply increasing physical activity levels alone is unlikely to reduce body weight in young children, and therefore will probably not prevent obesity (肥胖), although it may set the stage for a healthier lifestyle, the results of a study conducted in Scotland suggest. Instead, a combination of increased physical activity and other lifestyle changes like sticking to a healthy diet may be needed to stop the trend of obesity. “Many children are obese, even at preschool age,” Dr John J. Reilly from the University of Glasgow and his colleagues note in the British Medical Journal. Considering the general lack of evidence on proper ways to prevent obesity in this age group, Reilly’s team had 545 children from 36 nursery schools in the “Movement and Activity Glasgow Intervention (干预) in Children” or MAGIC trial. The trial was specifically designed to see if an increase in activity could reduce body mass index (身体质量指数). Each week for 24 weeks roughly half of the preschoolers, who were an average of 4.2 years old, participated in three 30-minute active workouts while at nursery school and their parents were encouraged to increase the child’s activity levels at home. The other half of the children, serving as contrasts, followed their usual nursery school schedule. According to the researchers, the physical activity intervention had no significant effect on body mass index of the children. However, compared with contrast children, intervention children show greater gains in body movement skills, which, the researchers say, may increase confidence in physical ability, perhaps increasing the opportunities of future participation in physical activity or sports. In a word, Reilly and his colleagues suggest that “successful interventions to prevent obesity in early childhood may require changes not just at nursery, school, and home, but in the wider environment. Changes in other behaviors, including diet, may also be necessary.” Topic Whether exercise alone can 71______________ obesity in young children. Researchers People researched Dr John J.

Nowadays more and more people are sending their children overseas for further study, even at middle school age. 38% of the people investigated agreed to this. They think their children can receive better education and learn a foreign language as well. And they have more golden opportunities to develop themselves. What is the most valuable is to learn to depend on themselves and to broaden their horizons and improve their understanding of the world. However, over 62% of the people, especially some educationists and parents, are not in favor of this, for they think studying abroad costs over ten times as much money as in China, besides, children are too young to take care of themselves. Many parents worry about the safety of their children. What’s more, they might follow bad examples. In my opinion, measures should be taken by the government to set up various schools and colleges to meet the needs of the people.
