Since I had taught in America for many years, I had no 36 about my ability to hold their attention and to 37 them my admiration for the literature of my native language. I was 38 when the monitor shouted, “ Stand up ! ” The whole class 39 as I entered the classroom. I was somewhat 40 how I could get them to sit down again, but once that embarrassment was over, I quickly 41 my calmness and began what I thought was a fact-packed lecture, sure to gain their respect --- perhaps even their admiration. I went back to my office with the rosy glow （满面红光）which came from a sense of 42 . All my students 43 diaries. 44 , as I read their diaries, the rosy glow was gradually 45 by a strong sense of sadness. The first diary said, “ Our literature teacher didn’t teach us anything today. Her next lecture will 46 be better. ” Greatly surprised, I read diary after diary, each expressing a 47 theme. “ Didn’t I teach them anything ? I described the whole framework of Western thought and laid the historical background for all the works we’ll study in class,” I complained. “ How 48 they say I didn’t 49 them anything ?”
After a long term, I gradually learned that my ideas about 50 were not the same as those of my students. I thought a teacher’s job was to 51 questions and provide enough background information so that students could 52 their own conclusions, while my students thought a teacher’s job was to provide exact information as 53 and clearly as possible. What a great 54 ! However, I also learned a lot, and my 55 with my Chinese students has made me a better American teacher, knowing how to teach in a different culture. 36.

Besides B. Therefore C. Thus D. However 45. A. replaced B. held C. controlled D. caught 46. A. surely B. naturally C. obviously D. possibly 47. A. normal B. special C. similar D. disappointing 48. A. shall B. should C. will D. would 49. A. explain B. tell C. provide D. teach 50. A. teaching B. learning C. culture D. literature 51. A. discover B. consider C. raise D. answer 52.

Colorful flower shop near the road attracted his attention. He stopped his car, got out and took a closer look at some of the flowers displayed. Every bouquet(花束) had a beautiful “Mother’s Day” greeting card attached to it. He thought about his loving mother who lived two hundred miles away. He chose a nice bouquet of pink roses, signed the greeting card and requested the shopkeeper to deliver it to his mother the same day. Just before he got into his car, he noticed a small, cute girl standing next to the shop. She was counting the money in her hand. She seemed a little upset. He went up to her and asked, “Can I help you?” She replied, “I want to buy some red roses for my mother. But I have only one dollar whereas the bouquet costs two dollars.” He smiled and asked her to go together to the shop. He bought a big bouquet of red roses for the little girl. After leaving the shop, he offered her a ride. She was excited and said, “Yes, please take me to my mother.”
She showed him the way, which finally led to a cemetery(公墓). She got off from his car, gave him a hug and said, “Thank you, Uncle.” Then she ran to her mother’s grave, knelt down and placed the bouquet on the freshly dug grave. The man was speechless for a minute. He immediately made a U turn and drove back to the same flower shop. He took the bouquet of pink roses from the seller and drove down two hundred miles to meet his beloved mother. He handed over the bouquet to his mother, gave her a tight hug and said, “I love you, Mom.” She kissed him on his forehead and asked, “Why did you drive down all the way? You could have simply delivered the bouquet to me and wished me over the phone.” He said to himself, “This is a Mother’s love. At any point in time, mothers think only about our comforts and well being.” 56. What did the man ask the shopkeeper do? A. To arrange flowers on the shelves neatly. B. To send the greeting card to his mother. C. To keep the colorful flowers in shade. D. To send a bouquet of roses to his mother. 57. It can be inferred from the text that__________.

Adult males can measure more than 9 feet in length and weigh between 770 and 1430 pounds. The polar bear has a strong body while their heads are narrow with small, rounded ears. Polar bears can be found in northern Canada, Greenland, Norway and Russia, and there have been reports that polar bear tracks have been found as far north as the North Pole. The 5 000 000-square-mile range of the polar bear circles the Arctic and contains pieces of open water where seals are easily caught. Polar bears live on the annual Arctic sea ice that provides a platform from which they can hunt. They hunt seals on the sea ice by breaking into seal dens in the sea ice. The dens aren’t visible from above, but seeing is less important than smelling to a polar bear----with their sharp sense of smell, polar bears can sense the breathing holes of seals in their dens beneath the snow and ice. As the southern edge of the Arctic ice cap melts in summer, polar bears are forced to stay on land and spend their summers fasting(禁食), living off body fat stored from hunting in spring and winter. With about 22 000 polar bears living in the wild, the species is not endangered at the moment, but its future is far from certain. Climate change is causing the disappearance of sea ice
from which polar bears hunt seals. Sea ice in the Arctic is melting earlier and forming later each year. People have reached an agreement that controls the hunting of polar bears and directs each nation to protect their habitats, but it does not protect the bears against the biggest man-made threat to their survival: global warming. If current warming trends continue, scientists believe that polar bears may disappear within 100 years. 63. Polar bears search fro seals mainly through their ________. A. eyes B. ears C. noses D. necks 64. The underlined word “dens” in paragraph 3 most probably means” _______”. A. the skin of the wild animals B. the home of wild animals C. the breathing hole of seals D. water of the deep sea 65. Which of the following statements is true? A. A polar bear measures at least 9 feet long. B. Polar bears can be found in both the North Pole and the South pole. C. Polar bears stop hunting in summer because seals are hidden at that time. D. Polar bears may die out as a result of climate change. D Have you ever felt like a fool for having said too much? Anita Chow had one of those moments. A few weeks ago, she applied for a job with a company. Chow said she is usually quiet, but during the interview she tried hard to act against her nature. She smiled a lot and talked in a lively manner. When asked why she wanted to work in the company, she said the job would enable her to meet a lot of interesting people. Then she added jokingly: "Who knows? I might even meet my future husband. " Chow wanted to beat herself up the moment she stepped out of the interview room. "It came out so wrong," she says. "Now the interviewers will think of me as one of those women who don't have any career ambition and just want to get married and settle down.” Saying too much or oversharing happens to every one of us. In the time of social media, sharing every detail of your life is almost expected and encouraged. But it isn't all social media’s fault. "Experts say oversharing often happens when we are trying subconsciously to control our anxiety," according to a Wall Street Joumal column. Chow's is a typical case of “self-adjustment" aimed at fighting her own anxiety. It happens like this: When having a conversation, we want to sound amusing and interesting. So we use a lot of mental energy trying to manage the other person's impression of us. The effort required to do this leaves less brainpower to think over what we say and to whom, says The Wall Street Joumal. This explains why we sometimes suddenly say embarrassing things to people we want to impress most, whether it's a first date, the boss or our future in-laws. It leads to embarrassing situations and is the perfect material for comedy movies. So how do you stop yourself from saying too much? Simple: stop and think before you open your mouth. 66. In the interview, Chow showed her______. A. lively manner B. career aim C. unusual ability D. rich experience 67. From Paragraph 3, we can know that Chow_______. A. gave the wrong answer B. regretted her performance
C. wanted to get married D. hoped to settle down 68. Experts say Chow's overtalking was actually to_______. A. show off her knowledge B. prevent herself from being anxious C. create a pleasant atmosphere D. follow her nature as it is 69. The embarrassing situations in the conversation are caused by lack of_____. A. consideration B. determination C . interest D. motivation 70. Which of the following can match the author’s opinion? A. Practice makes perfect. B. Once bitten, twice shy. C. Well begun is half done. D. Think twice before you act. 第 II 卷（共计 55 分） 第一部分：七选五(每小题 2 分, 满分 10 分) 根据短文内容, 从短文后的选项中选出能填入 空白处的最佳选项, 并在答题卡上写出答案。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Smiling is a great way to make yourself stand out while helping your body to function better.
