It is that simple. Just help a friend study for a test, or volunteer at a nursing home . I learned this after a long, hard search. I was feeling really down because my long4ime friend had died. Then I started a six-week volunteering at a nursing home all day every Saturday. My routine was to serve the meal and clean up. After that, I would wait for the head nurse to tell me what to do. One day I was told to go to Room 117 to make sure the patient was all righL. In the room I found a boy of eight sitting in his bed watching a movie. I was shocked to see a child in this seemingly forgotten nursing home for the old. He was so small and weak that you had to look closely to find him. He motioned for me to sit down. I grabbed his medical chart from which later I found out he had a terminal illness. We started to talk, and I found out that his family rarely visited, and all he did ever7 day was watch TV. I wanted to cry for him, and for my lost friend. As we talked, he had a smile on his face, and I asked him why. "The entire two hours I've been here you've never lost that smile. With this horrible disease, how do you still manage to stay happy?" He thought for a moment, and then said that too many people are dead even before they die. They walk around feeling that God has cursed (诅咒) them and that they have nothing to live for. The boy said that he would not be like that. He wakes every morning thankful to see another sunrise. He keeps his window open so that he can smell the flowers and feel the heat of the sun. He also said that he has hope. "Too many people haven't seen much of that around here," he said," Life is full of hope and we need to live life before it is gone. " I don’t know what happened to him. I assume he passed away, but his lesson lives on. I now wake up and live each day to the fullest. The key to life is not money or fame, but the lessons we learn from it. 56. The nursing home in the passage is mainly for _ A. the elderly B. the homeless C. the disabled D. the abandoned 57. The boy stayed happy mainly due to .
A. wonderful TV programs B. his positive attitude C. good medical condition D. others' encouragement 58. The writer participated in the volunteering job in order to .

The Purpose of Boredom Being bored can encourage people's creativity-partly to escape the horrible, frustrated. And meaningless feeling of boredom-recent studies find. It could even be true at work. Psychologists at the University of Central Lancashire had participants copy numbers out of the telephone book for 15 minutes,while others went straight into a standard creativity task. Both groups were asked to come up with as many different uses as they could for a plastic cup. The group that felt more bored came up with more uses. Dr. Sandi Mann, one of the study's authors said. " Boredom at work has always been seen as something to he removed. hut perhaps we should be welcoming it in order to encourage our creativity. What we want LO do next is to see what the practical implications of this finding are. Do people who are bored at work become more creative in other areas of their work-or do they go homeand write novels?" In a later study, Dr. Sandi Mann found that creativity was reduced when people were still bored but didn't have the chance to daydream. While we tend to think of boredom as something; that certainly leads to trouble-drinking, gambling. and antisocial behavior, this research suggests differer possibilities. More than anything, the feeling of boredom is a 8trong signal that we are stuck in some kind of rut and we need to seek out new goals. In the study above, this research led participants to new ideas. Usually peopl e will do anything to avoid being bored. as it's such an aversive experience. But creative people, like writers, sometimes talk ahout seeking out boredom. Here is the comedy writer Graham Linehan talking about boredom Lo The Cuardian. "I have to use all these programs that cut off the Internet,force me to be bored, because being bored is an essential part of writing, and the Internet has made it very hard to be bored. The creative process requires a period of boredom ,of being stuck. That's actually a very uncomfortable period that a lot of people mistake for writer's block, but it's actually just part of a long process. " So, when you start to feel bored , instead of g7ancing at your smartphone.,try being bored for a bit. Who knows what creative thought might come of it? 63. From the study of Dr. Sandi Mann, we can learn thaL . A. boring tasks make people creative B. daydreaming may increase creativity C. plastic cups can be used very creatively D. copying numbers might be very interesting 64. The underlined word "aversive" in Paragraph 8 probably means _ A. common. B. unpleasant C . unusual D. personal 65. According to Craham Linehan. _ . A. glancing at a smartphone is a solulion. B. he is forced to feel bored by the Internet C. the boredom period is a block for writers D. being stuck for a period benefits him a lot
66. What is the author's attitude towards boredom? A. Critical. B. Cautious. C. Positive D. Unclear. D Cheerleading is the fastest growing girls' sport, yet more than half of Americans do not believe it is a sport. Actually, competitive cheerleading is a sport. A sport is a “physical activity against/with an opponent, governed by rules and conditions under which a winner is declared, and the primary purpose of the competition is a comparison of the relative skills of the participants. "Because cheerleading follows these guidelines, it is a sport. Competitive cheerleading includes lots of physical activities. Like gymnasts, cheerleaders must learn to tumble (翻滚) . They perform lifts and tosses. This is where the "flied' are thrown in the air, held by "bases" in different positions that require strength and cooperation with other teammates. Just as basketball and football have guidelines for competitive play, so does competitive cheerleading. The whole routine has to be completed in less than 3 minutes and 15 seconds and the cheerleaders are required to stay within a certain area. Competitive cheerleaders' goal is to be the best. Just like gymnasts, they are awarded points for difficulty, creativity and sharpness. The more difficult a mount, the sharper the motions, the better the score. Cheerleading is a team sport so without cooperation, first place is out of reach. Cheerleading is the number-one cause of serious sports injuries to women. Emergency room visits for cheerleading are five times the number of those for any other sport, partially because they do not wear protective gear. While many athletes are equipped with hip pads or helmets, smiling cheerleaders are tossed into the air and spiral down into the arms of trusted teammates. The fliersmust remain tight at all times so that their bases can catch them safely. Also, because cheerleading is not yet recognized as a sport by many schools, neither proper matting nor high enough ceilings are provided to ensure safety. Instead, the girls use whatever space is available. More recognition of competitive cheerleading as a sport would decrease the number of injuries. So why do many Americans not think cheerleading is a sport? Some people argue that cheerleaders are just "flirts in skirts" with their only job to entertain the crowd, but cheerleaders today work just as hard as other athletes. Hopefully, cheerleading will become as well-known a sport as football and basketball, and even appear in the Olympics since cheerleaders are just as athletic and physically fit as those involved in the more accepted sports. 67. What does the underlined word "bases" in Paragraph 3 refer to? A. Strength and cooperation. B. Lifts and tosses. C. Supporting teammates. D. Physical activities 68．Gymnasts are mentioned in the passage to _ A. explain the dangers of cheerleading B. show their similarities with cheerleaders C. suggest cheerleaders learn to do gymnastics D. present the guidelines of gymnastic movements 69．It can be leamed from the passage that cheerleading A. is a good sport for all people
B. lacks necessary guidelines to follow C. is more than a form of entertainment D. enjoys greater popularity than other sports 70. This passage is written mainly to A attract more girls to cheerleading B draw people's attention to cheerleading C call for more recognition of competitive cheerleading as a sport D criticize some Americans who do not think cheerleading as a sport ABCD 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的七个选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为 多余选项。
That someone has gone to college and perhaps even earned a postgraduate degree in education does not mean he is or will be a good teacher. The measure of a good teacher is found in the results he sees in his students. Also, the attitude towards teaching, the school in which one teaches, students and parents will greatly affect those results. Their attitude must be positive. The teacher must approach education is doing will affect the world. They must have an attitude of belief in their the natural ability in learning of their students. Their attitude must be one that is open to continuous and constantly be learning more about the subjects that they teach with a belief that what he students regardless of then ever-ending learning;. Teachers must 73 And even if a teacher is a history teacher (not too many current events when studying, say, ancient history) they need to stay up-to-date on any current discoveries that perhaps haven't been known in the past. For example, in the USA, there has been a long held belief that Christopher Columbus " discovered" America. However, many are refuting (驳斥) the so-called "facts" today basing on new findings. 74 The farmer doesn't expect a harvest to appear immediately after he plants the seeds. He does, however, "see" the harvest in his mind. The s ame is necessary for the teacher.They know the harvest will come but today is a day to plant seeds and cultivate the crop, which can't be achieved within days. Their attitude must be one of perseverance. It's not always easy or fun to be a teacher. 75 Much of a teacher's stress comes from having to deal with the administration of schools,and facing students of different characters. It can be a pain sometimes. Teaching is a "calling", not just a vocation. You must have the vision to look into your students' eyes and see their futures. Not only is teaching an investment in children's lives, but, it is an investment in the future of our world. Therefore, it is rewarding. A There are times when it is difficult. B Their attitude must be one of patience. C Here are some attitudes of great teachers. D Those who take a negative attitude can't make it. E Here are some suggestions about how to be a great teacher. F Their attitude must be one of investments in children's lives. G They need to be reading the latest discoveries in their field.

四、One possible version: We had a special Teachers’ Day this year. Several days before Teachers' Day, some of my classmates and I had a group meeting in order to decide how we could celebrate it. My classmate came up with the idea of making a short video, so a few hours after the meeting we went outside and filmed it in front of the school entrance. The evening before Teachers' Day, I edited t he movie on my computer and added some music. When we eventually showed everybody the video on Teachers' Day, our teacher was very moved and the r est of the class really enjoyed it.
