2013——2014 学年度宁县夏季期末联考

高 二 英 语 试 题(卷)
本试卷分为第 1 卷和第 II 卷,满分 120 分,考试时间 100 分钟。

第一卷
第一部分 阅读理解共两题, (满分 40 分) 第一节(共 15 小题;每小题

2 分,共 30 分) 阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个(A, B, C 和 D)选项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项 涂黑。 A Sometimes you?ll hear people say that you can?t expect someone else to love you until you love yourself. Either way, you?ve got to love yourself first and this can be tricky. Sure we all know that we?re the apple of our parents? eyes, and that our Grandmas think we?re great talents and our Uncle Roberts think that we will go to the Olympics. but sometimes it?s a lot harder to think such nice thoughts about ourselves. If you find that believing in yourself is a challenge. it is time you build a positive self-image and learn to love yourself. Self-image is your own mind?s picture of yourself.This image includes the way you look, the way you act, the way you talk and the way you think . Interestingly , our self-images are often quite different from the images others hold about US.Unfortunately, most of these images are more negative than they should be.Thus changing the way you think about yourself is the key to changing your self-image and your whole world. The best way to defeat a passive self-image is to step back and decide to stress your successes. That is, make a list if you need to, but write down all of the great things you do every day. Don?t allow doubts to occur in it. It very well might be that you are experiencing a negative self-image because you can?t move past one flaw or weakness that you see about yourself. Well , roll up your sleeves and make a change of it as your primary task. If you think you?re silly because you aren?t good at math, find a tutor.If you think you?re weak because you can?t run a mile, get to the track and practice.If you think you?re dull because you don?t wear the latest trends, buy a few new clothes. But remember, just because you think it doesn?t mean it?s true. The best way to get rid of a negative serf-image is to realize that your image is far from objective, and to actively convince yourself of your positive qualities. Changing the way you think and working on those you need to improve will go a long way towards promoting a positive self-image. When you can pat(拍) yourself on the back, you?ll know you?re well on your way. Good luck! 1.You need to build a positive self-image when you _________. A.dare to challenge yourself B.feel it hard to change yourself C.are unconfident about yourself D.have a high opinion of yourself 2.According to the passage, our serf-images _________. A.have positive effects B.are probably untrue C.are often changeable D.have different functions

3.How should you change your serf-image according to the passage? A.To keep a different image of others. B.To make your life successful. C.To understand your own world. D.To change the way you think. 4.What is the passage mainly about? A.How to prepare for your success. B.How to face challenges in your life. C.How to build a positive self-image. D.How to develop your good qualities. B In modern society there is a great deal of argument about competition. Some value it highly, believing that it is responsible for social progress and prosperity , others say that competition is bad; that it sets one person against another; that it lead to unfriendly relationship between people. I have taught many children who held the belief that their self – worth relied (依赖) on how well they performed at tennis and other skills. For them, playing well and winning are often life – and – death affairs. In their single – minded pursuit (追求) of success, the development of many other human qualities is sadly forgotten. However, while some seem to be lost in the desire to succeed, others take an opposite attitude. In a culture which values only the winner and pays no attention to the ordinary players, they strongly blame competition. Among the most vocal are youngsters who have suffered under competitive pressures from their parents or society. Teaching these young people, I often observe in them a desire to fail. They seem to seek failure by not trying to win or achieve success. By not trying, they always have an excuse: “I may have lost, but it doesn?t matter because I really didn?t try.” What is not usually admitted by themselves is the belief that if they had really tried and lost, that would mean a lot. Such a loss would be a measure of their worth. Clearly, this belief is the same as that of the true competitors who try to prove themselves. Both are based on the mistaken belief that one?s self – respect relies on how well one performs in comparison with others. Both are afraid of not being valued. Only as this basic and often troublesome fear begins to dissolve (缓解) can we discover a new meaning in competition. 5.What does this passage mainly talk about? A.Competition helps to set up self – respect. B.Opinions about competition are different among people. C.Competition is harmful to personal quality development. D.Failures are necessary experiences in competition 6.Why do some people favor competition according to the passage? A.It pushes society forward. B.It builds up a sense of duty. C.It improves personal abilities. D.It encourages individual efforts. 7.The underlined phrase “the most vocal” in Paragraph 3 means . A.those who try their best to win B.those who value competition most highly C.those who are against competition most strongly D.those who rely on others most for success 8.Which point of view may the author agree to?

Threat to Asia Grows NEW DELHI-Just a few years ago. Mala was a typical middle-class Indian housewife. She cooked, cleaned and looked after her two small children. Last year, her life took a tragic turn. Her husband died of AIDS; she was found out HIV-positive(爱滋病病毒检验呈阳性反应) and her mother-in-law took her children away from her, saying they would get the disease. “When friends dropped for a visit, she would introduce me, saying, ?She is my son?s widow. She has AIDS ,?”said Mala. AIDS is now described as “explosive(炸 药)“ around the world. A study of a hospital in the port city of Durban in South Africa, where the world?s biggest and Africa?s first AIDS conference opened last Sunday, found that almost half the beds in medical wards(病房) were occupied by AIDS patients. South Africa has one of the world?s fastest growing HIV infections(传染), with 1,700 people infected daily, adding to the 4.3 million, or 10 percent of its population, living with HIV. Until now, Asia has been more successful in holding the AIDS virus(病毒) than Africa, where the disease has killed about 12 million people . AIDS is now threatening to surround many of Asia?s poverty-stricken countries.Countries in Asia, such as Cambodia, and Thailand, have HIV infection speeds over 1 percent. But the low speeds hide huge numbers of affected people,because of the population base. In India, for example, 3.7 million are infected, more than in any other country except South Africa. In China, an estimated 500,000 people, mainly drug users, live with HIV/AIDS. Gordon Alexander, a senio advisor for UN AIDS in India, estimates (估计) that the number hit by AIDS in Asia will climb about eight million over the next five years from about six million. In many Asian countries, the battle against HIV is a social and cultural one against public discussion of sexual health put a nationwide media campaign into action to limit the speed of HIV through unsafe sex. Brenton Wong, an official for Singapore?s Action for AIDS, says the actual HIV incidence in the city state of 3.9 million people is at least eight times higher than official data.”Shame and deny is still very, very common so people are afraid to get tested and many times won?t even tell their families if they test positive,” said Wong. 9. What does the underlined word “she” refer to? A. Mala B. Mala?s mother C. Mala?s mother-in-law D. Mala?s sister 10. According to the passage, the main reasons that AIDS spread in Asia is through_______. A. blood B. unsafe sex C. love D. drugs 11.__________is the second largest country which has more HIV infection all over the world. A. China B. South Africa C. India D. Thailand 12. Why are people afraid of being infected by AIDS? a. Because people who have AIDS are looked down upon. b. Because they will suffer a lot. c. Because they will die sooner or later. A. ab B. ac C. bc D. abc D What should you think about when trying to find your career? You are probably better at some school subjects than others. These may show strengths that you can use in your work. A boy who is

good at mathematics can use that in an engineering career. A girl who spells well and likes English may be good at office work. So it is important to know the subjects you do well in at school. On the other hand, you may not have any specially strong subjects but your records show a general satisfactory standard. Although not all subjects can be used directly in a job, they may have indirect value. A knowledge of history is not required for most jobs but if history is one of your good subjects you will have learned to remember facts and details. This is an ability that can be useful in many jobs. Your school may have taught you skills, such as typing or technical drawing, which you can use in your work. You may be good at metalwork or cookery and look for a job where you can improve these skills. If you have had a part-time job on Saturdays or in the summer, think what you gained from it. If nothing else, you may have learned how to get to work on time, to follow instructions and to get on with older workers. You may have learned to give correct change in a shop, for example. Just as important, you may become interested in a particular industry or career you see from the inside in a part-time job. Facing your weak points is also part of knowing yourself. You may be all thumbs when you handle tools; perhaps you are a poor speller or cannot add up a column of figures. It is better to face any weakness than to pretend they do not exist. Your school record, for instance, may not be too good, yet it is an important part of your background. You should not be apologetic about it but instead recognize that you will have a chance of a fresh start at work. 13. We can infer from the first paragraph that ________. A. learning better at school shows power in your job B. the better you are at school subjects, the more helpful they are in your career. C. learning each subject well is an ability in many jobs. D. we should think about how to find our career 14. From the passage we learn that if a student?s school performance is not good, he will _____. A. have no hope in his future work B. be hopeful to find a suitable job C. regret not having worked harder at school D. have an opportunity of a new beginning in his future work 15. The underlined phrase “be all thumbs” (in Paragraph 3) probably means “_________”. A. heavy- handed B. the best C. important D. skilled 第二节. 七选五。(每小题 2 分,满分 10 分。)从所给的选项(A,B,C,D,E,F,G)中选出能填 入空白处的最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。其中有两项是多余选项。 (16) ____You probably think you will never be a top student. This is not necessarily so, however. Anyone can become a better student if he or she wants to. Here?s how: 1. Plan your time carefully. When planning your work, you should make a list of things that you have to do. After making this list, you should make a schedule of your time. First your time for eating, sleeping, dressing, etc. Then decide a good, regular time for studying. (17) ____ A weekly schedule may not solve all your problems, but it will force you realize what is happening to your time. 2. Find a good place to study. Look around the house for a good study area. Keep this space, which may be a desk or simply a corner of your room, free of everything but study materials. No games, radios, or television. When you sit down to study, concentrate on the subject. 3.Make good use of your time in class.( 18) ____ Listening carefully in class means less work later. Taking notes will help you remember what the teacher says.

When you get home from school, go over your notes, review the important points that your teacher is going to discuss the next day, read that material.(19)_____ If you do these things regularly, the material will become more meaningful, and you?ll remember it longer . 5.Develop a good attitude towards tests. The purpose of a test is to show what you have learned about a subject. They help you remember your new knowledge. The world won?t end if you don?t pass a test, so don?t be over worried. (20)_____ You will probably discover them after you have tried these. A. There are other methods that might help you with your studying. B. Don?t forget to set aside enough time for entertainment. C. Take advantage of class time to listen to everything the teacher says. D. No one can become a top student unless he or she works hard. E. Maybe you are an average student. F.

Having taught in the US for 17 years, I had no 21 about my ability to hold their attention and to 22 on them my admiration for the literature(文学)of my mother tongue. I was shocked when the monitor shouted, “23 !” and the entire class rose as I entered the room, and I was somewhat 24 about how to get them to sit down again, but once that awkwardness(尴 尬)was over, I quickly 25 my calmness and began what I thought was a fact – packed lecture, sure to gain their respect – perhaps 26 their admiration. I went back to my office with the rosy glow which comes from a (n) 27 of achievements. My students 28 diaries. However, as I read them, the rosy glow was gradually 29 by a strong sense of sadness. The first diary said, “Our literature teacher didn?t teach us anything today. 30 her next lecture will be better.” Greatly surprised, I read diary after diary, each expressing a 31 subject. “Didn?t I teach them anything? I described the entire philosophical framework(哲学体系)of Western thought and laid the historical 32 for all the works we?ll study in class,” I complained. “How 33 they say I didn?t teach them anything?” It was a long term, and it 34 became clear that my ideas about education were not the same as 35 of my students. I thought a teacher?s job was to raise 36 questions and provide enough background so that students could 37 their own conclusions. My students thought a teacher?s job was to provide 38 information as directly and clearly as possible. What a difference! 39 , I also learned a lot, and my experience with my Chinese students has made me a 40 American teacher, knowing how to teach in a different culture. 21.A.worry B.idea C.doubt D.experience 22.A.impress B.put C.leave D.fix 23.A.Attention B.Look out C.At ease D.Stand up 24.A.puzzled B.sure C.curious D.worried 25.A.found B.returned C.regained D.followed
