As I looked closer at this girl, I saw that she was kind of perched (困在) on her wheelchair. I then 4 she had no arms or legs, 5 small red dots. As the couple wheeled her up to me I was looking down at the register. I turned my head toward the girl and gave her a wink (眨眼). As I took the money from her grandparents, I looked back at the girl, who was giving me the cutest, largest 7 I have ever seen. All of a 8 her handicap was gone and all I saw me into her world — a was this beautiful girl, whose smile just melted me and almost instantly gave me a completely new sense of what life is all about. She took me from a poor unhappy college student and 9 world of smiles, love and 10 . a head, neck and torso (躯干). She was wearing a little white dress 6 at the cash register (收银机) in the gift shop, I saw an elderly

That was ten years ago. I'm a successful business person now and whenever I came down and think of the trouble of the world, I think about that little girl and the remarkable 11 about life that she taught me. 1. working 2. couple 10. warmth 11. lesson 3. wheelchair 4. realized 5. just / leaving 6. with 7. smile 8. sudden 9. brought

3 It was a very cold evening, an old man was waiting for a ride across the river. He saw several horsemen pass by but he didn?t ask for any help. The wait seemed __1__(end). Then came another rider, the old man __2__(catch) his eye and said, “Sir, would you mind doing me a favor?”

Stopping his horse,he replied, “Of course.” Almost __3__(freeze), the old man could not get __4__ the ground. The horseman helped him onto his horse. He took the old man not just across the river,__5__ to his home. “Sir, you didn?t even ask the other riders for help, why? What __6__ I had said ?no? and left you there?” the horseman asked. The old man looked at him straight in the eyes and said, “I looked into their eyes, I found they didn?t care,__7__ told me it would be useless, but when I looked into __8__, I saw kindness.” These words touched the rider deeply. “Thank you for __9__ you?ve said, I hope I will never be too busy to help others.” with that, Thomas Jefferson, the __10__(three) president of the US, turned his horse around and went away. 1.Endless 2.Caught 3.Frozen 4.Off 5.But 6.If 7.Which 8.yours 9.

One day I was in a taxi and we headed ⑵ the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car drove out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his 39 , slide sideways,and at the very last moment our car stopped and ⑶ the other car by just inches!The driver of the other car looked around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just ⑸ and waved at the guy. And I mean he was really friendly. So I asked, "Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital ! ” This is my taxi driver taught me what I now call "The Law of the Garbage Truck". He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger,and full of disappointment. As their garbage ⑹ up,they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally; Just smile,wave,wish them well,and move on. Believe me. You'll be happier. Don't ⑺ their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home,or on the streets, Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. The mark of your success is how quickly you can refocus on what's⑻ in your life. Roy Baumeister,a psychology researcher from Florida State University,found in his extensive research that you remember bad things more often than good things in your life. You store the bad memories more easily, and you ⑼ them more frequently. So, Love the people who treat you right. Ignore the ones who don't. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you ⑽ it! When you follow “The Law of the Garbage Truck",you take back control of your life. You make room for the good by ⑾ go of the bad. Have a Garbage-Free Day!Have a marvelous,garbage-free day! The seeds you plant today ⑿ the harvest you reap tomorrow. 1. ruin 2. for 3. brake 9. recall 10. take 11. let 4. missed 5. smiled 12. determine 6. piles 5 Lucky to have him I never had a father, though in my neighborhood that's not unusual. I know some kids just like me. You have to watch yourself. There are fights and killings all the time. I have friends who 1. up in jail or pregnant. I could have ended up that way, too, 2 Mr Clark and my mom wouldn't let that happen. Mr Clark worked long hours, 3. sure I did my work. My grades rose. In fact, I did so well that in sixth grade, I entered the gifted class, and Mr Clark was the teacher. I felt so 4. to have him for a second year! He took our class to see The Phantom of the Opera. Before the show, he 5. us to dinner at a restaurant and taught us not to talk 6. our mouths full. We didn't want to let him 7. ,so we 7. take 8. important

listened to him attentively. None of us were surprised when Mr Clark was selected as Disney's 2000 Teacher of the Year. When he learned he'd won, he said he would 8. three names out of a hat; he would go to Los Angeles to get the 9. with those students. But 10. it came time to draw names, Mr Clark said, “You're all going.” He got donations to fly all 37 of us out to Disneyland in California and put us up at the Hilton. People were 11 ,but Mr Clark really cared about us. There's no way I can imagine most teachers doing that. No way. But he saw something in us that 12. else saw. On graduation day, there were a lot of tears. We didn't want his class to 13. . In the new school year, we were all happy when Mr Clark 14. up in our class once again. He's been a constant in our lives. In 2003, Mr Clark took some of us on a trip to South Africa to display school supplies and visit orphanages. It was the most amazing 15. of my life. It's now my turn to one day start a group of women's clubs, helping people from all backgrounds. 1. end 2. but 3. making 4. lucky 5. treated 6. with 7. down 8. draw 9. reward 10. when 11. amazed 12. no one 13. end 14. show up / turn up 15. experience 6 War, money and power are a few things that countries and people are concerned about. ⑴ I agree that those things are important, I believe that everyone should start to ⑵ more on a growing problem—global warming. Global warming will not only affect our country and our generation, but also the entire world and future generations. It is occurring because the weather has been a lot ⑶ over the past few years, which ⑷ in the melting(融化) of the ice in the Antarctic. This will soon cause water levels to ⑸ and flood parts of the world. Many people ignore this problem because they feel as if they can't do anything about it and have more important things to worry about. If we all ⑹ so, then our ozone layer( 臭 氧 层 ) will be ⑺ and the planet will no longer be able to make life continue to exist. We should do our best to limit the use of our planet's ⑻ resources (资源) and keep our air clean. ⑼ , future generations will ⑽ from our mistake. Some might feel that they can't ⑾ global warming from continuing. But if every single person does his or her⑿ in keeping the air clean, then it will become a worldwide effort. Sure, there are some things that cause pollution and that we won't be able to fully change. This may include cars burning oil, but we can at least adjust some of these things. People can start carpooling, taking the bus, riding their bikes, or even just ⒀ . If everyone takes ⒁ now, I believe we can start seeing remarkable results within a few years. 1.Although 2. focus / concentrate 3. warmer 4. result 5. rise 6. think / do 7. destroyed 8. natural 9. Otherwise 10. suffer 11. stop / prevent / keep 12. part 13. walking 14. action / measure 7 When I come ⑴ a good article in reading newspapers, I often want to cut and keep it. But just as I am about to do so, I find the article on the⑵ side is as much interesting. It may be a discussion of the way to⑶ in good health, or advice about how to behave and conduct oneself in society. If I cut the front article, the opposite one is likely to suffering ⑷ , ⑸ out half of it or keeping the text without the title. Therefore, the scissors(剪子)would stay before they start, or halfway done when I find out the regretful result. Sometimes two things are to be done at the same time, both worth your attention. You can only take up one of them, the other has to wait or be ⑹ up. But you know the future is unpredictable—the changed situation may not allow you to do what is left ⑺ . Thus you are ⑻ in a difficult position and feel sad. How ⑼ that nice chances and brilliant ideas should gather around all at once? It may happen that your life changes greatly on

your preference of one choice to the other. In fact that is what⑽ is like: we are often faced with the two⑾ sides of a thing which are both desirable like a newspaper cutting. It often occurs that your ⑿ is drawn to one thing only before we get into another. The ⒀ may be more important than the latter and give rise to divided mind. I ⒁ remember a philosopher's remarks, “When one door shuts, another opens in life.” So a casual⒂ may not be a bad one. 1. across 2. opposite 3. keep 4. damage 5. leaving 6. given 7. behind 8. struck 9. come 10. life 11. opposite 12. attention 13. former 14. still 15. choice 8 A boy was walking home from school when he saw a large, tempting (诱人的) apple on one of the branches of an apple tree ⑴ out over a tall fence. The boy wasn?t much of a fruit-eater, preferring a bar of chocolate if given the choice, ⑵ , as they say, the forbidden fruit can be tempting. Seeing the apple, the boy wanted it. The more he looked at it, the ⑶ he felt and the more he wanted that apple. Stretching as high as he could, but even at his tallest height he was unable to touch it. He began to ⑷ up and down, as high as he could, at the top of each jump stretching his arms to get the apple. Still it remained out of ⑸ . Not giving up, he thought, if only he had something to stand ⑹ . His school bag wouldn?t give enough height and he didn?t want to ⑺ the things inside, like his lunch box, pencil case, and Gameboy. Looking ⑻ , he hoped he might find an old box, a rock, or, with luck, even a ladder, but it was a tidy neighborhood and there was nothing he could use. He had tried everything he could think to do. ⑼ seeing any other choices, he gave up and started to walk ⑽ . At first he felt angry and disappointed thinking about how hungry he had become from his efforts, and how he really wanted that apple. The more he ⑾ like this, the more unhappy he became. ⑿ , the boy of our story was a pretty smart guy, even if he couldn?t always ⒀ what he wanted. He started to say to himself, “This isn?t helpful, I don?t have the apple and I?m feeling miserable as well. There?s nothing more I can do to get the apple—that is unchangeable—but we are supposed to be able to ⒁ our feelings. If that?s the case, what can I do to feel better?” 1. hanging 2. but 3. hungrier 4. jump 5. reach 6. on 7. damage /break 8. around 9. without 10. away 11. thought 12. However 13. get 14. change 9 I remember as a small child when we would have these gatherings where someone would come up and ask, “What are you going to be when you grow up?”? Well, it started out being a cowboy or some super hero. Later it was a fireman, policeman, lawyer ... As I grew older my dreams of the future 1 become a teacher(牧师) as my father. 3 . When, at last, I was in college, I made up my 2 I studied and prepared for that life. I reached 4 to in the

However, for many, there is a “thief” which goes around stealing our 5 come as a parent, a relative, or a friend, but the greatest thief is, so many times, just 6 We find ourselves just about reaching the top, and this “small” 7 8 . Sometimes, the thief will .? inside says, “You will never make

.” “You can?t possibly do this.” And on and on the “small” voice predicts some kind of failure. Failure,

though, is exactly how dreams are realized. It is one of the most important tools we have, because it teaches us

invaluable 9

. And, when we learn these lessons well, we are ready 10


The message I always gave my children was that you are able to do anything your heart desires. Remember the saying, “Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.” There are 11 “overnight” successes, but with 12 , it will come. Imagine yourself in the life you dream of living. it from you—especially yourself.? Then in your heart, believe it will happen for you. Then work, work, work. You get the picture.? So, be true to your dream, and don?t let anyone 13

It can break ⑴ all kinds of barriers(障碍)to reach students in a very special way. It can be the ⑵ for each child to find their light. I would like to ⑶ a story about it. For a few years I was blessed with the opportunity to teach disabled students. One of my most memorable students was a fiveyearold girl called Vanessa, who had difficulty walking, and could not speak. We ⑷ sat on the floor for our music lessons and Vanessa liked to ⑸ on my lap(大腿). One of her favorite songs was John the Rabbit. It was a call and response song where I sang the call and the students ⑹ twice while singing the repeating phrase,“ Oh, yes !” Vanessa liked to put her hands together with mine and clap with me. We probably performed that song during every class, Vanessa and I clapping together. But she ⑺ said or sang a word. One day, when the song was finished, Vanessa turned around,⑻ me in the eye, clapped her tiny hands twice and said the words “Oh, yes!” I opened my mouth in ⑼ and for that moment I was the one who could not speak. When my heart finally started beating again, I looked over at the assistant teacher to find her also ⑽ . Through music, we had made an awesome connection. Several years later, I met Vanessa on the street in town. She waved with a big ⑾ on her face and then clapped her hands twice, imitating the song we had ⑿ so many times in our music class. The little girl, ⒀ her connection with music, left an impression on me that will last forever. Every child has the ⒁ to learn and grow. It is up to us to discover the way to reach each and every one of our students. We all must find each child's ⒂ . 1. through 2. way 3. share 4. mostly / usually 5. sat 6. clapped 7. never 8. looked 9. surprise 10. speechless 11. smile 12. practiced 13. through 14. ability 15. light
