第三部分：阅读理解 (共两节，40分) 第一节 (共15小题；每小题2分，共30分) 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将 该项涂黑。 A San Diego Summer The summer after my second year in high school, I finally had the opportunity to live with my super-cool sister in San Diego for three weeks. It was going to be great! I would lie on the beach in the sun. Perhaps I would surf a little or ride my bike around Coronado Island. Meanwhile, I would spend every morning, Monday through Friday, teaching YMCA (Young
Men’s Christian Association) kids how to play tennis…for FREE. Since college wasn’t too far off, and since I had practically zero hours of community service, my volunteering at the YMCA was smart. I like tennis and I even kind of like little kids. Anyway, life was going to be amazing for those three weeks. On my first day at the YMCA, I was shocked by the smallness of the children. The kids could barely grasp a racket(球拍), let alone swing one. This is when it occurred to me how potentially terrible the situation was—a group of thirty small children with rackets in hand and only four coaches. The odds were definitely against us. Luckily, the kids did not have blood on their minds, and they were relatively obedient and cooperative. It soon became painfully obvious that I was the only “coach” actually coaching. Rather ironic when one considered that I was the only one of the four NOT being paid. I must admit, however, that despite all of my efforts these children were not getting much. I had to keep telling myself that while I couldn’t enjoy the fruits of my labor at the moment, I would be reveling in the benefits once college application time came. Thus, I soldiered on. As I returned home the day before the opening of school, I had complete peace of mind. Although I did not spend every day at the beach as I had initially hoped to do, I did accomplish several things and I felt as if I were a better person because of my three weeks in San Diego. 56. Before going to San Diego the author was full of ______. A. expectation B. confidence C. doubt D. curiosity
57. The author taught YMCA kids to play tennis because she ______. A. loved small children and was active as a volunteer B. must do community service to be admitted to college C. wanted to earn some money to pay for her college fees D. would like to do something for others as a sincere Christian 58. The underlined words “I soldiered on” reflect the author’s ______. A. desire to join the army B. love for teaching tennis C. control for young learner D. determination not to give up 59. According to the last paragraph, we can predict that the author will ______ in the future. A. become a teacher B. move to the beach C. play tennis professionally D. help others more willingly

C The Lionfish Invasion! Lionfish are popular saltwater aquarium(水族箱) fish all over the world, especially in the United States. Nowadays, they also live in Atlantic waters off the East Coast of the United States. These lionfish are what scientists call an invasive(侵入的) species(物种) or an “alien invader.” Local divers off the coast of North Carolina were not expecting to see what they found one day in August 2002—the beautiful lionfish, common to the warm waters of the western Pacific, but unknown of the Carolina coast. They provided the first solid evidence that lionfish were in the Atlantic. A year later, scientists documented 19 lionfish sightings at eight locations along the North Carolina continental shelf. Then, lionfish were observed off the coasts of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, and even as far north as Long Island, New York! Between 2000 and 2003, lionfish sightings were reported at 16 different shipwrecks and natural hard bottom locations. During a summer 2004 research expedition, NOAA(The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) scientists collected 155 lionfish at 19 different locations off the North Carolina coast alone. The jump in numbers and distributions over such a short time strongly indicates that the lionfish is reproducing in the Atlantic Ocean. If this is true, it’s the first time that a western Pacific fish has populated the U.S. Atlantic coast. These lionfish were likely released on purpose when people no longer wanted them! The swift and warm Gulf Stream, which transported the floating lionfish eggs from Florida northward, helped the lionfish’s Atlantic journey. In Florida waters and along the continental shelf near the Gulf Stream the temperatures are very similar to the lionfish’s native waters. However, from north Florida upward, the waters along the coastline are too cold in the winter for lionfish to survive. Scientists expect them to survive the winter only at water depths greater than 120ft because this is where the Gulf Stream has influence all year long. Very importantly, the types of predators(食肉动物) and competitors present in the Atlantic are very different from the native range of the lionfish. Generally, the lionfish have not been found to endanger marine ecosystems because they were not likely to survive long.
63. Scientists call the lionfish an “alien invader” because the lionfish ______. A. have damaged the native species B. are able to live in a new environment C. came from one place and spread to another D. will attack other species with their poisonous teeth 64. How does the author support the reproducing of lionfish in the Atlantic in Para.3? A. By analyzing causes. B. By providing figures. C. By raising questions. D. By expressing opinions. 65. Which of the following is the main idea of the passage? A. Lionfish got into the Atlantic Ocean in 2002. B. Lionfish will not live long in the new environment. C. Lionfish is a popular aquarium fish in the United States. D. Lionfish has been populating the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
66. What is the author’s attitude towards the lionfish invasion? A. Serious. B. Disapproving. C. Optimistic. D. Indifferent.
D Why Laughter Matters Although most people believe that laughter is one of the nature’s great treatments for a whole range of mental and physical diseases, it is still a serious scientific subject that researchers are trying to figure out. “Laughter above all else is a social thing,” says Baltimore neuroscientist, Robert Provine, who has studied laughter for decades. “All laughter groups laugh ‘ha-ha-ha’ basically the same way. Whether you speak Mandarin, French or English, everyone will understand laughter. There is a pattern generator(发生器) in our brain that produces this sound.” Laughing is our first way of communicating. Babies laugh long before they speak. No one teaches them how to laugh. They just do. People may laugh at a prank(恶作剧) on April Fools’ day. But surprisingly, only 10 to 15 percent of laughter is the result of someone making a joke. Laughter is mostly about social responses rather to a joke. Deaf people laugh without hearing and people on cell phones laugh without seeing, showing that laughter isn’t dependent on single sense but on
- 10 -
social interactions. And laughter is not just a people thing. Chimps tickle(挠痒) each other and even laugh when another chimp pretends to tickle them. Jaak Panksepp, a Bowling Green University Psychology professor, studies rats that laugh when he tickles them. It turns out rats love to be tickled—they return again and again to the hands of researchers tickling them. By studying rats, scientists can figure out what’s going on in the brain during laughter. Northwestern University biomedical engineering professor, Jeffrey Burgdorf has found that laughter in rats produces a chemical that acts as an antidepressant(抗抑郁药). He thinks the same thing probably happens in humans, too. This would give doctors a new chemical target to develop drugs that can fight depression. Even so, laughter itself has not been proved to be the best medicine, experts said. Margaret Stuber, a professor at University of California, studied whether laugher helped patients. She found that distraction(分心) and mood improvement helped, but she could not find a benefit of laughter alone. “No study has shown that laughter produces a direct health benefit,” Provine said, largely because it’s hard to separate laughter from just feeling good. But he thinks it doesn’t really matter: “Isn’t the fact that laughter feels good when you do it enough?”
67. The most important finding of Robert Provine’s research is that ______. A. laughter makes a person feel good B. laughter depends on different senses C. laughter is a quality people are born with D. laughter is a social response shared by all creatures 68. According to the passage, scientists studied rats in order to find ______. A. if they can laugh B. if they like laughing C. what laughter in rats produces D. how rats react while being tickled 69. What can we learn from the passage? A. Patients will recover if they laugh enough. B. Laughter is a means of communication as well as language. C. A new medicine has been developed based on the laughter research. D. Scientists can know what is happening in a human brain when he laughs.

第二节 (共5小题；每小题2分，共10分) 根据短文内容，从短文后的七个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。 Seeing with Sound According to a British news report, some blind people may finally get a chance to “see”. __71 Dr. Peter Meijer, a scientist at Philips Research Laboratories in the Netherlands, has developed a new system called the vOICe. The three middle letters in vOICe stand for “Oh, I see.” Meijer’s groundbreaking technology may change the lives of visually impaired (视力障碍) people all over the world. A wearable setup of vOICe system consists of a head-mounted camera, stereo headphones and a notebook PC. The system translates visual images from a camera into complex sounds. __72 The program is based on the theory that people can hear certain sounds and learn to translate them into meaningful mental images. Everything has its own unique sound. 73 The height of an object or person could be determined by pitch(音调). And a built-in colour identifier speaks out colour names when it is turned on. What the vOICe users had to learn is which sound went with which object. Meijer says that he is counting on the brain’s ability to adapt. __74 Within two weeks, most people who experiment with the vOICe system are able to identify objects such as walls and doors. They are also able to identify certain situations, including

whether the lights in a room are on or off. time.
Meijer thinks that translating will eventually
become automatic for many users of the vOICe, bringing a form of vision to them for the very first
A. Brighter areas sound louder than darker areas. B. It then sends these sounds to a person through headphones. C. However, they are not learning to see with their eyes; they are learning to see with their ears. D. The vOICe system is aiming to treat blindness by translating images from a camera into audio signals. E. Meijer supposes that the brain is interested in the information “content”, but not the information “carrier”. F. To evaluate the new system’s effectiveness, a number of visually impaired people were chosen to test the vOICe. G. Over time, some users have even learned to “watch” television or “recognize” the outlines of buildings as they walk. 第四部分：书面表达 (共两节，35分) 第一节 情景作文 (20分) 假设你是红星中学高二（1）班的学生李华。你校英语报正在开展以“人间真情”为主题 的征文活动。请根据图片的先后顺序，将2012年7月21日北京暴雨当晚父亲和你开车回家时发 生的故事记述下来，向校报投稿。词数不少于60。
