Winter-swimming has become popular in Beijing. Three years ago, few people would go swimming in the city waters. But now there is a Winter-

swimming Enthusiasts’ Club(冬泳爱好者协会)and it has more than 2, 000 members. The oldest is 84 years of age and the youngest is only 7. The members are from all ways of life. They may be workers, peasants, soldiers, teachers, students....

Words:310 难度系数:★★★ 建议用时:8 分钟 I once had my Chinese MBA students brainstorming on “twohour business plans”.I separated them into six groups and gave them an example: a restaurant chain.The more original their idea, the better, I said.Finally, five of the six groups presented plans for restaurant chains.The sixth proposed a catering(餐饮) service.Though I admitted the time limit had been difficult, I expressed my disappointment. My students were middle managers, financial analysts and financiers from stateowned enterprises and global companies.They were not without talent or opinions, but they had been shaped by an educational system that rarely stressed or rewarded critical thinking or inventiveness.The scene I just described came in different forms during my two years’ teaching at the school.Papers were often copied from the Web and the Harvard Business Review.Case study debates were written up and just memorized.Students frequently said that copying is a superior business strategy, better than inventing and creating. In China, every product you can imagine has been made and sold.But so few welldeveloped marketing and management minds have been raised that it will be a long time before most people in the world can name a Chinese brand. With this problem in mind, partnerships with institutions like Yale and MIT have been established.And then there’s the “thousandtalent scheme”: this new government program is intended to improve technological modernization by attracting top foreigntrained scientists to the mainland with big money.But there are worries about China’s research environment.It’s hardly known for producing independent thinking and openness,and even big salary offers may not be attractive enough to overcome this. At last, for China, becoming a major world creator is not just about setting up partnerships with top

western universities.Nor is it about gathering a group of welleducated people and telling them to think creatively.It’s about establishing a rich learning environment for young minds.It’s not that simple. 【解题导语】 这是一篇教育类夹叙夹议文,讲述了作者通过教学发现教育中存在的问题。 5.Why does the author feel disappointed at his students? A.Because there is one group presenting a catering service. B.Because the six groups made projects for restaurant chains. C.Because all the students copied a case for the difficult topic. D.Because the students’ ideas were lacking in creativeness. 解析:选 D。推理判断题。根据第一段和第二段的信息可知,“我”对学生们缺乏创新意识和 批判性思维感到很失望。 6.Which of the following scenes is NOT considered as lack of creation? A.Papers were often downloaded from the Internet. B.Students often said that copy ing is a preferable business strategy. C.Students combine knowledge and critical thoughts to solve a problem. D.Case study debates were written up as well as recited. 解析:选 C。细节理解题。由第二段特别是最后三句可知,学生综合运用所学知识和批判性思 维来解决问题是创新。选 C 项。 7.The underlined word “scheme” in the fourth paragraph means ________. A.timetable B.theme C.project D.policy
[来源:学_科_网 Z_X_X_K]

解析:选 C。词义猜测题。由第四段中的“this new government program”可知 scheme 表示“计 划,方案”,故选 C 项。 8.Which is the best title of the passage? A.Look for a new way of learning B.Reward creative thinking C.How to become a creator D.Establish a technical environment 解析:选 A。主旨大意题。整篇文章讲述中国教育中存在的问题并由此引发的思考——有了更为 自由宽松的学习环境,才能有创造性的研究。 *************************************************************结束

***************************************************************结束 第四部分:阅读理解(共 20 小题,每小题 2 分,满分 40 分)阅读下列短文,从每题所给的 四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出最佳选项.

(A) E-book is short for electronic( 电子的) book. It is usually read on personal computers. Some mobile phones can also be used to read e-books. Earlier e-books were written for a specific(专业) group of readers and were about only a few subjects. With the development of the Internet, knowledge and answers to a lot of questions mainly come from e-books. This is why the e-book business is increasing quickly. E-books have many advantages. First, they save time. We don’t need to go to a bookstore to buy books, besides, we can find the topic we want to know about on the Internet, and then we can quickly get many e-books on similar topics. Second, e-books save money. Some e-books cost a little money, and there are millions of e-books on the Internet that we can get for free. Third, more trees are saved because e-books don’t need to be printed(印刷) on paper. Fourth, e-books make reading more convenient. You can carry a whole library of hundreds of books with you in a small computer

or any e-book reader (电子阅读器) without worrying about their weight. But e-books have certain disadvantages. They need a personal computer or an e-book reader and the information can be lost if its file format (文件格式) is not supported (支持)or changed in the reader’s computer. However, e-books provide us with a new way of reading. That is good. 56. Why is the e-book business increasing quickly? Because _________. A. earlier e-books are about only a few subjects. B. people don ’t like to read any paper books any more. C. most e-books have been written for a specific group of readers. D. the development of the Internet makes e-books more useful. 57. How many advantages do e-boo ks have according to(根据) this article? A. Three B. Four C. Five D. Six

58. Which of the following is true according to this article? A. E-books can’t be read on mobile phones. B. All the e-books on the Internet cost lots of money. C. E-books can make reading more convenient. D. You can’t read e-books without a personal computer. 59. What is the disadvantage of the e-books?

A. You’ll lose the information if its file format is not supported. B. You can carry hundreds of books in an e-book reader. C. You can buy cheap e-books anywhere. D. You can read e-books at any time. 60. The author mainly tells us __________. A. you don’t need to buy paper books in a bookstore if you read e-books. B. the information can be lost if its file format is changed. C. the development of e-books can help save the environment. D. e-books provide us with a new way of reading.

Ask a bachelor(单身汉) why he resists marriage even though he finds dating to be less and less satisfying. If he is honest he will tell you that he is afraid of making a commitment. For commitment is in fact quite painful. The single life is filled with fun, adventure, excitement. Marriage has such moments, but they are not its most distinguishing (显著的) features. Couples with infant children are lucky to get a whole night’s sleep or a three-day vacation. I don’t know any parent who would choose the word fun to describe raising children. But couples who decide not to have children never know the joys of watching a child grow up or of playing with a grandchild. Understanding and accepting that true happiness has nothing to do with fun is one of the most liberating realizations. It liberates (释放) time: now we can devote more hours to activities that can genuinely increase our happiness. It liberates money: buying that new car or those fancy clothes that will do nothing to increase our happiness now seems pointless. And it liberates us from envy: we now understand that all those who are always having so much fun actually may not be happy at all. 60. According to the author, a bachelor resists marriage chiefly because ________ . A. he is reluctant to take on family responsibilities B. he believes that life will be mor e cheerful if he remains single C. he finds more fun in dating than in marriage D. he fears it will put an end to all his fun adventure and excitement 61. Raising children, in the author’s opinion is ________ . A. a moral duty C. a rewarding task B. a thankless job D. a source of inevitable pain

62. From the last paragraph, we learn that envy sometimes stems from (起源于) ________ . A. hatred C. prejudice B. misunderstanding D. ignorance

63. To understand what true happiness is one must ________ . A. have as much fun as possible during one’s lifetime B. make every effort to liberate oneself from pain

C. put up with pain under all circumstances D. be able to distinguish happiness from fun
