One of my favorite 31 to do this is by developing my own helping rituals（习惯）. These little acts of 32 are opportunities to be of service and reminders of how good it feels to be kind and 33 . We live in a rural area of the San Francisco Bay Area. Most of what we see is 34 nature. One of the 35 to the beauty is the litter that some people throw out of their windows as they are 36 on the rural roads. One of the few 37 to living in the rural areas is that public services, such as litter collection, are less 38 than they are closer to the city. A helping ritual that I practice 39 with my two children is picking up litter in our surrounding area. We’ve become so accustomed to doing this that my 40 will often say to me in pleasant voices, "There's some litter, Daddy, 41 the car!" And if we have 42 , we will often pull over and pick it up. It may seem strange, but we actually 43 it. We pick up litter in parks,
on sidewalks, practically anywhere. Once I even saw a (n) 44 picking up litter close to where we live. The man whom I didn’t know smiled at me and said, "I 45 saw you doing it, and it seemed like a good idea." Picking up litter is only 46 of an endless supply of possible helping rituals. You might like holding a door open for people, visiting and 47 lonely elderly people in nursing homes, or shoveling snow off someone else’s driveway. Think of something that seems effortless 48 helpful. It’s worthwhile, personally rewarding, and sets a good example. Your acts of kindness can 49 others to do the same things. And everyone 50 from this. 31. A. things B. activities C. ways D. places 32. A. kindness B. education C. instruction D. amusement 33. A. polite B. curious C. challenging D. helpful 34. A. dirty B. beautiful C. different D. simple 35. A. explanations B. answers C. changes D. weaknesses 36. A. running B. walking C. driving D. jumping 37. A. reasons B. disadvantages C. principles D. days 38. A. available B. important C. satisfying D. dangerous 39. A. generally B. casually C. regularly D. deliberately 40. A. friends B. parents C. colleagues D. children 41. A. stop B. start C. repair D. speed 42. A. faith B. time C. money D. material 43. A. enjoy B. need C. see D. get 44.

B Do you often find yourself crying in arguments? Does it feel like you just can’t stop your emotions defeating you completely when you are in the middle of a heated discussion with someone, and you particularly want to make clear strong points and express yourself effectively? Many people think that someone who bursts into tears during an argument or a quarrel is 9 / 17 trying to handle the situation by bringing emotion into it. But the person who wells up tears during some heated discussion is not in control of those tears. They just can’t control blushing（脸 红） or stop themselves breaking out in a sweat if they feel nervous. The body has a number of such automatic responses that switch on without your decision that you want to respond like this. These instinctive behaviors have evolved over millions of years to protect us. Basically, our brains make associations between things that seem similar, which is important for automatic responses. For example, a snake is a potentially dangerous creature, and you can see why it might be useful if, whenever you see a snake, you will run like crazy. And you can see why it might still be useful if you see a flexible stick and get the same reaction. However, these very simple associations can sometimes be really unhelpful. It’s not useful to try to calmly argue an important point with someone, and suddenly find tears running down
your cheeks. Tears can generally make you seem weak, or foolish, and less credible. Who’s going to take what you say seriously if you’re crying? But if these reactions are not under your control, what can you do about it? The good news is that although you can’t control automatic reactions directly, you can unlink unhelpful associations. And that means that an unwanted reaction won’t get started, and so won’t happen. Besides, you can try the following: Begin to notice a change in how you feel about previous times when you were defeated by emotion; Develop a growing sense of confidence and optimism about how things will go in the future. 56. According to Paragraph 2, what’s the author’s opinion on crying? A. It is a natural response to stress. B. It should be thought highly of. C. It is harmful to people’s health. D. It is a useful way to end arguments. 57. What matters when people are making some automatic responses? A. Firm determination. B. Great imagination. C. Rich knowledge. D. Different personalities. 58. What can we infer from the passage? A. Arguments should be avoided. B. Social activities are vital for mental health. C. Automatic responses don’t always make a difference. D. Tears can help people handle arguments more calmly. 59. According to the last paragraph, in order to control automatic reactions in arguments, people can try _________. www.myschoolnet.cn? A. explaining strong points patiently B. ending arguments as quickly as possible C. pretending to be determined and credible D. learning to be hopeful about what will happen later 60. The main purpose of the passage is to give advice on _________. A. how to overcome our fears B. how to avoid tears in arguments
C. how to express our feelings clearly D. how to communicate with people crying C My parents lived to be ninety-three and ninety-four. Mother lived longer and kept her mental sharpness until a few days before she died. Dad suffered from dementia （痴呆） probably for the last six months of his life. It’s hard to say how long because his dear wife knew how to cover his forgetfulness or sometimes strange behavior up for him. There were times, however, when mother became totally frustrated with the changes she saw taking place and she would blame him for doing things on purpose just to make her angry. He loved juicy fruit gum, but she kept it hidden from sight and rationed（定量供应）it because he could chew five or six sticks in an hour and ask for another package. “I have to watch him like a hawk.” she said. Even though they lived in an assisted-living facility, my father would not bathe himself and would not let any staff person help him. So mother adjusted his shower temperature, washed his back, brought him a dry towel, and helped him dress. With her heart failure and the need for oxygen full time, this chore wore her out, both physically and emotionally. Then he started getting up in the middle of night. He would go into their bathroom, which was actually a part of their bedroom, turn on all the lights, and shave. Mother could not convince him to return to bed until he finished. As a result, mother couldn’t get enough sleep at night. I don’t have any answers that might have made their last months together any easier. Since they were very private people, sometimes it was hard to know what was really going on. When I stopped by their place, mother would talk nonstop as usual and daddy would smile a lot, like what he used to do. I took along food they enjoyed to them, like smoothies or milkshakes. Mother loved orchids and they thrived under her care so she usually received one for any special occasion. Daddy would often let me brush his “angel hair”, as mother named it, and I might help her fasten jewelry. All of these little things were ways to say “I love you”, but we didn’t often discuss some of
the truly important issues related to my daddy’s declining health. I tried to respect their privacy and treat them with the dignity they deserved. I think they both tried to protect me, their daughter. I guess that’s what parents do. www.myschoolnet.cn? 61. The writer didn’t know much about her father’s dementia, because _______. A. she didn’t visit her parents much B. her father hid his conditions carefully C. her father’s conditions weren’t serious D. her mother kept her father’s dementia a secret 62. What the writer’s mother said in Paragraph 2 shows that ________. A. her mother was very strict with her father B. her mother had to pay full attention to her father C. her father liked eating juicy fruit gum very much D. her father often made her mother angry on purpose 63. Which word can best describe the writer’s mother according to Paragraph 3? A. Exhausted. B. Crazy. C. Considerate. D. Bored. 64. Seeing her father smile a lot, the writer ________. A. found it unusual B. knew he was pretending C. considered her father normal D. wanted to talk nonstop with him 65. What can we conclude after reading the passage? A. The writer’s family isn’t filled with love. B. It’s not easy to care for someone with dementia. C. It’s hard to say the writer cares about her parents. D. The writer knows how to make others’ lives easier. D We all know that good study habits are essential to success. We probably can reduce the academic dishonesty by promoting good study habits among students. Letting the students know how important good study habits are when they come to school. Still, even procrastination(拖延) can be overcome by proper study habits, and improving study habits is the key to better studying. Good study habits are a great tool to have in the toolbox of life. Many of the tips for success for online students are the same as those for students in a classroom. Consider asking the school's student union to take on a study tips project.
Following a few simple study tips can help students effectively learn new concepts and theories. A good way to stay organized is to use folders (文件夹) so that your child can keep his / her assignments. Once children reach the grades where homework and tests are part of the curriculum, there are many things parents can do to encourage good study habits. An effective way is to study before and while they do their homework. Being organized and having homework routines are the most important things in helping your child develop good habits for life. Learning, however, is a process which settles into certain steps. Students with learning problems, however, may still have generally inefficient and ineffective study habits and skills. Becoming aware of your child’s learning style will help you understand why they sometimes get frustrated with common study methods. Effective study habits are a very important part of the learning process. Good study habits are all about keeping to a daily routine and giving all subjects equal treatment. If your child's study habits are weak, take a “study skills” course or have someone show him/her good study habits. The problem is that those high-school study habits are hard to shake. Hard work and good study habits are two characters to be nurtured (培养). Motivation and study habits are obviously very important as well. 66. What does the author mainly want to tell us in Paragraph 1? A. The features of good study habits. B. The definition of good study habits. C. The importance of good study habits. D. The relation between good study habits and success. 67. What can the school's student union do for students? A. Organize teaches to help students learn effectively. B. Work out a few simple study tips for them to follow. C. Ask them to use folders to keep their assignments. D. Offer help before and while they do their homework. 68. It is important for parents to be aware of their children's learning style because________ . A. every child has his/her own learning style B. it is the only way to learn about their children C. all learning is a process which settles into certain steps D. it helps to know exactly what problems their children have
69. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that ________． A. parents should pay equal attention to every subject B. bad study habits are easy to develop but hard to get rid of C. taking a "study skills" course is helpful to form good study habits D. hard work and motivation are two major factors in nurturing good study habits 70. The text is mainly written for _____. A. parents B. online students C. educational workers public 第Ⅱ卷（本卷共 2 道题，共 35 分）
第一节：阅读表达（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下面短文，并按照题目要求用英语回答问题。 Manufacturers, sellers, and advertisers love to tell us that advertising will save us money. They are always convincing us that placing ads in and on everything from video games to toilet paper will save consumers money through the theory that the advertising pays the cost of part of the item or the service, allowing the seller or provider to charge less than they otherwise would. Nonsense! A couple of years ago, I plan to buy a Kindle (电子读书器). I decided to choose the one with the ads or “Special Offers” as Amazon called it, due to the overall purchase price, which was lower, and the promises of money-saving offers, and in addition, I would have to accept the basic ads. Well, things were good for about six months. I did indeed receive some offers such as $10 off a $50 purchase, or the opportunity to buy certain books for only $1. Then the offers dried up when the Kindle Fire came out. Suddenly the majority of the special offers were restricted(限于) to Kindle Fire owners. Not there are very few offers for them, either. The only things I now receive are true ads: Things for me to look at, but which hold no value for me at all. The advertising I ever allowed because I thought it was supposed to be a benefit to me is no longer benefiting me. Frankly, it makes me mad. I fell for the “Advertising will save you money” strategy that so many sellers like to throw around. I did my research and thought that it would be different with the Kindle. But it wasn’t. Once they needed to sell a different product, those holding the older product got left behind. And now that they need to cut profit margins （利润率） , even those holding the newer product are not receiving the offers that came in the “heyday （全盛期） ”
of the special offers. Sure, you pay bit less for the model that displays ads, but beyond that the money-saving aspect is long gone. 71. What would happen to us, according to advertisers, if they didn’t place ads in and on everything? (no more than 11 words) 72. Why did the author choose to buy the Kindle with the ads? ( no more than 10 words) 73. What did the author realize through the experience of buying the Kindle? (no more than 9 words) 74. What do the underlined words “dried up” probably mean in the third paragraph? (no more than 6 words) 75. For what purpose do you think the author writes the text?

welcoming speech.

After that, a volunteer activity will take place in the nearby community, making it an opportunity for American students to know more about China and improve the friendship with Chinese students. How do you like the arrangements? If you have any better idea, please don’t hesitate to tell me.
