Module 2 My New Teachers
“阅读+七选五+完形”组合练——练题型 (限时:35 分钟) Ⅰ.阅读理解 (2016·沈阳市高三质检)I have been teaching animal behavior at the Boulder County Jail in Colorado for 10 years. The course is one of the most popular in the prison. Prisoners have to earn the right to attend the course and they work hard to get in. One reason why the course is so popular is that many prisoners find it easier to connect with animals than with people, because animals don't judge them. They trust animals in ways they don't with humans. Yet, they hold a misunderstanding of how animals treat one another. Many admit that their own “animal behavior” is what got them into trouble in the first place. I teach that though there is competition and aggression in the animal kingdom, there is also a lot of cooperation (合作) and sympathy. Many of the students want to build healthy relationships, and they find that the class helps them. I use examples of the social behavior of group?living animals such as wolves as a model for developing and maintaining ( 维 持 ) friendships among people who must work together for their own good and also for the good of the group. It's clear that science inspires the students here and it also gives them hope. I know some students have gone back into education after their being set free while others have gone to work for humane (人道的) societies or contributed time and money to conservation organizations. One went on to receive a master's degree in nature writing. Science and humane education help the prisoners connect with values that they otherwise would not have done. It opens the door to understanding, trust, cooperation and hope. There's a large population of people to whom science could mean a lot, if only they could have access to it. The class helps me, too. I get as much out of it as the students and it has made me a better teacher. 语篇解读: 本文是一篇夹叙夹议文, 讲述了作者作为一名教师, 在一所监狱讲授 animal behavior 的经历和收获。 1.The author's course is welcomed by the prisoners because ________. A.they consider animals their best friends

B.they are curious about the animal kingdom C.they feel it easier to get along with animals D.they are more familiar with animal behavior 解析:选 C 细节理解题。根据文章第二段的第一句可知,犯人感觉相对于人而言 与动物更容易相处,故选 C。 2.The author used wolves as an example to ________. A.provide the prisoners with more knowledge B.explain the cruel side of group?living animals C.help the prisoners realize the importance of teamwork D.inform the prisoners that animals get people into trouble 解析:选 C 细节理解题。根据第四段中的“I use examples of the social

behavior of group?living animals ... the good of the group.”可知,作者以狼 为例是为了帮助犯人明白合作的重要性,因此选择 C。 3.We can infer from the text that some prisoners ________. A.have turned over a new leaf B.are required to attend the course C.are willing to learn working skills D.prefer humane education to science 解析:选 A 推理判断题。根据倒数第二段的内容可知,很多犯人出狱后有很大的 改变,因此选 A, turn over a new leaf “改过自新”。 Ⅱ.阅读七选五 (2016·包头市高三统一考试)__1__.
