三、阅读理解（共20小题；每小题2分，满分40分） The Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center is in Baltimore, Maryland. It is named after one of the most important African-American jazz and ragtime ( 拉格泰姆音乐 ) musicians of the 20th century. Before his death in 1983, Eubie Blake was believed to be the only musician still living who had played ragtime music. Eubie Blake was born in Baltimore in 1887. He began playing the piano when he was about five years old. He was playing professionally by the age of sixteen. In 1921, he and Noble Sissle w rote the musical play Shuffle Along. It was the first Broadway musical written, produced and performed by all African Americans. Shuffle Along ran for more than five hundred performances. The musical helped launch the careers of several African-American performers, including singers Josephine Baker and Paul Robeson. Eubie Blake wrote other Broadway musicals during his eighty-year career. He also wrote more than 350 songs. The original songs are still on display at the Eubie Blake National Jazz In stitute and Cultural Center. The Center opened in 1978. It was part of an effort to bring cultural arts to young people in the inner city of Baltimore. At the same time, Eubie Blake and his wife Marian were negotiating an agreement with the Maryland Historical Society. They wanted to donate several historically important objects. These included original sheet music and audio recordings of several Eubie Blake songs. They also included personal letters written by Blake and old pictures of him and other famous musicians. And they included the original government document proclaiming February fourteenth, 1973 as Eubie Blake Day in Baltimore. Thousands of people visit the center every year, especially young people. 36. What is the passage mainly about? A. The Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center. B. The great achievements of a famous African-American musician. C. The ragtime music in American history. D. An effort to bring cultural arts to young people in Baltimore.
37. Shuffle Along is mentioned in Paragraph 2 because _______. A. it is the first musical play written by Eubie Blake B. it is the most famous musical play in Broadway C. it is the first Broadway musical ever to be made D. it is a milestone for many African Americans 38. The Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center was built to _______. A. honor all African-American musicians B. preserve the original works of Eubie Blake C. make cultural arts known by young people D. train young African-American musicians 39. We can infer from the second paragraph that _______. A. Eubie Blake was born into a musician’s family B. Eubie Blake began his career at the age of 21 C. several African-American people got their success from Shuffle Along D. Josephine Baker and Paul Robeson contributed the most to Shuffle Along 40. The last paragraph implies that _______. A. Eubie Blake’s original works were not valued at first B. the Center is not popular with young people C. Eubie Blake kept the most historically important objects himself D. Eubie Blake’s achievements were admitted by the government B There is no doubt that teens today are extremely busy. Homework piles up and e xtra-curricular (课外的) activities are time-consuming. Teens have to take part in a sport or activity after school, and they are up until 10:00 or later doing homework. Getting teenagers involved in voluntary opportunities can give them a sense of accomplishment that is not connected with sports or school. Teenagers are often in their own little world. Helping them get involved in voluntary opportunities is the perfect way for them to open up a new world and give their time to a good cause. Th e key to getting teens involved in voluntary work is to find an opportunity that will fit into their schedule and to find something that interests them. Also, keep it close to home. If you have to drive a long distance to volunteer, it’s less likely to be accomplished. My son has helped out with the local library’s reading program now for two summers. It is close to home and the schedule is very elastic. We go in and choose days that work with his schedule and he volunteers for about 2 hours at a time. He is responsible for helping kids get signed up for the summer reading program and helping them record the hours they read. It is only a one-week time commitment, but it is very rewarding. When teens volunteer, they often see that there are others more needy than themselves. They also learn time management. Your teen will become a more rounded, less self-centred individual.
Colleges see thousands of students applying for admission every year. If your teen has shown the dedication to volunteer in the community, it could give him the advantage for college admission or scholarship opportunities. So, volunteering is good for their present and their future! 41. What is the text mainly about? A. The heavy loads teens facing toady. B. The benefits of volunteering for teens. C. The author’s son’s volunteering experience. D. The requirements of volunteering. 42. The author of the text probably _______. A. never thought his son would volunteer B. tries to limit his son’s volunteering time C. supports his son in volunteering D. is concerned about his son’s study 43. We can infer from the last paragraph that _______. A. colleges are more likely to choose one with volunteering experiences B. volunteering can help a teen stand out as an excellent student C. scholarship opportunities are only offered to excellent students D. one can’t become an excellent student without volunteering experiences 44. The underlined word “elastic” in the fourth paragraph can be best replaced by _______. A. inde pendent B. tight A. Whether it can suit my interest. B. Whether it can improve my grades. C. Whether it is near or far from my home. D. W hether it can give me a sense of accomplishment. C It seems lately that more and more of my friends are facing some seemingly insurmountable (难 以对付的) challenges in their lives. A few have lost their jobs and some have failed marriages. Or too many have health issues. I don’t know if it is desperation that causes them to turn to me for advice. But it is difficult to offer words of hope when all they feel is hopeless. They expect answers, or a roadmap to get them back on their feet again. I have often struggled with what to say. Mostly because I have faced many of the same challenges in my own life, I remember how empty I felt after someone cheerfully offered words like, “Things will get better!” “It’s always darkest...” etc. Now, as an inspiration writer, being thought of as a resource of hope or a good (or bad) example of what to do in life, I have even more people contacting me. C. demanding D. flexible 45. Which of the following will NOT be considered if you want to find a voluntary opportunity?
So, what do I say?
“What can I do, Bob? I’ve lost my job. What do you suggest?” “Begin again.” “He walked out on me. My whole world just ended. What should I do?” “Begin again.” It almost sounds too simple. I imagine in the darkest hours of one’s life those words would seem useless or uncaring. But it is indeed the answer. All life challenges bring about an ending—and the chance for a beginning. A failed marriage does not mean you are through with love or being loved. It means there are others just like you needing to be loved. Find them. A life-threatening disease does not mean giving up. It means starting a new path to recovery and discovering within yourself the ability to fight back and win. And if you are a person of faith, even death does not mean it’s over. It means “to begin again”. 46. What is the best title for this passage? A. Begin again. C. A wise answer. B. A good piece of advice. D. A new path to recovery.
47. Which of the following can be inferred from the text? A. One should never give up hope though life is hard. B. The author’s answer is very simple and useless. C. In fact, the author doesn’t know what to do with life challenges. D. All challenges will lead to an ending and desperation. 48. The expression “walked out on” means _______. A. had pity on C. went away from A. easy C. unrealistic B. put up with D. got on with B. impossible D. effective
49. From the passage we can conclude that the suggestion on life challenges is _______.
50. Which of the following matches the writer’s suggestion on life challenges? A. A scientist did an experiment for many times and gave it up at last. B. A young man was refused by many companies and he started his own. C. A student failed the final examination and was lost in great despair. D. A man had a great loss in his business and jumped down from a building. D A new study says if a mom is apart from her children, talking on the phone will help as much as a hug. If you’re a parent who spends long hours on the job, you probably feel guilty for spending so much time away from your kids. But the results of a new study show that a mother’s voice alone can
be just as comforting to an anxious child as physical contact. In an experiment, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison asked a group of girls between the ages of 7 and 12 to solve math problems in front of judges — a stressful situation for anyone. Before the girls were set to give their answers, the researchers measured their levels of two hormones (荷尔蒙): cortisol, which goes up during stressful situations, and oxytocin, the “love” hormone, goes down. After they were finished, some of the girls got to meet up with their mothers right away. The moms came in and hugged the girls. Another group of the girls didn’t see their mothers, but received phone calls from them, on which their mothers told them how well they’d done. The final group had no contact with their mothers, but instead watched a cartoon movie, March of the Penguins. Finally, the girls’ hormone levels were measured again. Although the movie was interesting, it did nothing to ease the children’s anxiety — but, surprisingly, both the physical contact and phone calls from their mothers had the same influence on easing the girls’ stress levels. So, no matter how old you are, if you’re feeling stressed about something in your life, a phone call to Mom might be just the key to help you feel better. 51. What’s the main idea of the text? A. A mother’s voice can comfort her anxious kids. B. Mothers should often hug their kids. C. Mothers should spend enough time caring about their kids. D. Scientists discovered why kids become stressed when having tests. 52. If a girl is under stress, _______. A. she can’t solve math problems B. she will have high levels of hormone C. oxytocin will remain at a high level D. cortisol will increase with oxytocin down 53. Which of the following is the right order in which the study was carried out? a. The girls solved math problems. b. The girls’ levels of hormones were measured again. c. The girls were divided into three groups. d. The girls’ leve ls of hormones were measured. A. a, c, d, b B. d, a, c, b C. c, a, d, b D. d, c, a, b 54. From the text, we can infer that _______. A. parents should believe in their kids B. kids should learn how to ease anxiety C. girls are not good at solving math problems D. the girls who had watched the movie remained worried 55. The writer’s attitude toward the result is _______.
A. negative B. puzzling 四、书面表达（共两节，满分45分）
第一节 阅读表达（共5小题；每小题3分，满分15分） 阅读下面短文，并根据短文后的要求回答问题（请注意问题后的词数要求）。  Research shows that teenagers today are not healthy. Why? The list of the reasons is quite long and boring, but some of these “bad” aspects of their lives should be mentioned.  First of all, teenagers are “addicted” to “junk” food, as their best friends are hamburgers, pizza or chips. Teenagers don’t eat what it is best for their physical development and don’t want to pay attention to a healthy way of eating. On the contrary, it’s also the case of the girls who ________ so as to lose weight. They get to suffer from starvation just to be skinny as the models they read about in magazines or newspapers.  Secondly, young people nowadays do not spend much time outdoors, walking in the park, going camping or climbing. In fact, TV, computer games, DVD or music are much more interesting. Just imagine mother calling her son to lunch and him shouting, “No, no, I’m watching my favorite program! I’ll eat later.” He really doesn’t care that later he’ll eat alone, that he won’t have anyone to talk to. In this way communication between the members of the family decreases to a great degree until it disappears completely.  Thirdly, there is also the case of the “dangers” that make the parents worry: alcohol, drugs, smoking. They are always worried when their children go to a disco or to a party, as they know how easily teenagers are tempted to try something new, just for fun.  Teenagers ought to take more care of their health as the environment is becoming more and more dangerous. If they aren’t aware of everything that surrounds them, they won’t be able to fight them and stay as healthy as possible. 56. List three reasons that cause the teenagers to be unhealthy. (no more than 12 words) ① ______________ ② ________________ ③ ________________ 57. Fill in the blank in Paragraph 2 with proper words or phrases. (no more than 5 words) _____________________________________________________________ 58. Which sentence in the passage is the closest in meaning to the following one?
