One by one, graffiti-covered walls are being changed into outdoor art. So far, more than 1,800 murals (壁画) have been painted. Philadelphia now has more murals than any other American city.
The walls that were once ugly with graffiti (涂鸦) are now covered with beautiful pictures of historical heroes and modern art, thanks to the Mural Arts Program (MAP). Its work makes schools and public places attra ctive, and its citizens very proud. The program began as part of Philadelphia's Anti-Graffiti Network. Jane Golden is the MAP's artistic director. “When people ask me what our program is about,” she says, “I answer them with one word: hope.” Each year, the MAP offers youth art programs and works hops. Some one-time graffiti writers even help paint MAP murals. The MAP's work, says Golden, is all about developing a sense of community (社区)．When a neighborhood requests a mural, the MAP works with the people there to develop a message. Some messages have been “Safe Streets,” “Love and Care,” and “Peace Walk.” The MAP receives up to 50 requests for murals each week. Last year, the workers painted 140 murals. “The making of a mural enters people's collective memory as an extraordinary, pleasant moment in neighborhood history,” says Golden, who began as a muralist in Los Angeles. 25．What can be the best title for the text? A. Love, from Graffiti Writers to Muralists B. MAP, a New Company in Philadelphia C. Jane, an Excellent Mural Artist D. Hope, One Wall at a Time 26. What is the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia aimed at? A. Helping the young find jobs. B. Protecting the neighborhood. C. Fighting against graffiti. D. Attracting more visitors. 27．How does the MAP decide on the message for a mural? A. By having discussions with people in the community. B. By seeking advice from the city government. C. By learning from the young graffiti writers. D. By studying the history of the city. 28. Which of the following words best describes the work of the MAP? A. Difficult. B. Dangerous. C. Experimental. D. Successful.
阅读七选五 Muzak The next time you go into a bank, a store, or a supermarket, stop and listen. What do you hear? 36 It's similar to the music you listen to, but it's not exactly the same. That's because this music was especially designed to relax you, or to give you extra energy. Sometimes you don't even realize the music is playing, but you react to the music anyway. Quiet background music used to be called “elevator (电梯) music” because we often heard it in elevators. But lately we hear it in more and more places, and it has a new name “Muzak”. About one-third of the people in America listen to “Muzak” every day. The music plays for 15 minutes at a time, with short pauses in between. It is always more lively between ten and eleven
in the morning, and between three and four in the afternoon, when people are more tired. 37 If you listen to Muzak carefully, you will probably recognize the names of many of the songs. Some musicians or songwriters don't want their songs to be used as Muzak, but others are happy when their son gs are chosen. Why? 38 Music is often played in public places because it is designed to make people feel less lonely when they are in an airport or a hotel. It has been proven that Muzak does what it is designed to do. Tired office workers suddenly have more energy when they hear the pleasant sound of Muzak in the background. 39 Supermarket shoppers buy 38 percent more groceries. 40 They say it's boring to hear the same songs all the time. But other people enjoy hearing Muzak in public places. They say it helps them relax and feel calm. One way or another, Muzak affects everyone. Some farmers even say their cows give more milk when they hear Muzak! A. Some people don't like Muzak. B. The music gives them extra energy. C. Music is playing in the background. D. Factory workers produce 13 percent more. E. Muzak tends to help people understand music better. F. They get as much as $4 million a year if their songs are used. G. Muzak is played in most of the big supermarkets in the world. 短文改错 Last Sunday morning, when I was having a walk in the park near my home, I came across a crew make a new film with one of my favourite actor.

She was really small for her age of 12. The boys in my class often 41 about her and laughed their heads off. She would open a book, pretending to read, with tears dropping on the open page. All I knew was that she was an orphan (孤儿) from Africa. She had just been adopted by a family in town who 42 that the best way for her to learn American ways of life was to be with American kids. I looked down at this 43 girl and promised myself that somehow I would help her. But how could I help her 44 in with us? There had to be a 45 .

Could you help me, Suzy?” On the day of the talent show, Suzy's 52 w ere everywhere — all over the hall and all over the school, each one different. “And finally,” said Mr. Brown, the schoolmaster, at the end of the show, “we have a(n) 53 award. I'm sure you've all noticed the wonderful posters.” Everyone nodded. “One of our own students 54 them.” I could hear everyone whispering. “Who in our school could draw 55 well?”
Mr. Brown waited a while before saying, “ 56 this student worked so h ard on the posters, she deserves a 57 , too. Our mystery (神秘) artist is our new student — Suzy Khan!” Mr. Brown thanked her for all the wonderful posters and gave her a professional artist's set. “Thank you,” she cried. I 58 , at that time when I was looking at her excited face, she'd probably never 59 anything in her whole life. Everyone started to 60 their hands. Suzy Khan gave them a shy smile and the applause was deafening. I knew then Suzy was going to be all right. 41. A. j oked B. cared C. forgot D. worried 42.
