their names? There can be many reasons. Hanna changed her name to Anne because she thought it would be easier for people to remember. On the other hand, Joseph is thinking about changing his name to an unusual name because he wants to be different. People have a lot of reasons for changing their names. Film stars, singers, sportsmen and some other famous people often change their names because they want names that are not ordinary, or that have special sound. They choose the “new names” for themselves instead of the names their parents gave them when they were born. Some people have another reason for changing their names. They have moved to a new country and want to use a name that is usual there. For example, Li Kaiming changed his name to Ken Lee when he moved to the United States. He uses the name Ken at his job and at school. But with his family and Chinese friends, he uses Li Kaiming. For some people, using different names makes life easier in their new country.

After his father died in 1970, five-year-old Arnel had to work in a small shop to help his family. The boy insisted on going to school and his mother finally sent him to a nearby public school. “I was happy to study but my life became harder because I had to wake up earlier to do all my jobs before I went to school,” says Arnel. Worn down by all the work, he was ready to give up by the time he reached the fifth grade. Then his teacher?s words changed his life and made him study harder. Arnel finished high school at the top of his class, received a scholarship ( 奖学金) from the Philippine Normal University in Manila and got a degree in education in 1985. He took a job teaching math at a Manila private school and did volunteer teaching at the school?s adult
class in the evening. “The adults were from poor families and had to work when they were very young,” he explains. “It was touching to see how they tried to get a high school education at their age.” As time passed, he realized that helping needy students was his true calling. In 2004 he left his well-paid job and returned to Rosario. “My goal was to educate street children for free.” He began holding classes under a large tree. Slowly, more and more street children became interested in his teaching. “I taught them the basics of reading, writing and math,” says Arnel. He worked harder, walking to nearby villages, where he would give classes in parks or on playgrounds. To make ends meet, he began teaching children from rich families. In June this year Arnel borrowed a bicycle with a large sidecar from a neighbour. The sidecar holds a small wooden desk, textbooks and school supplies, and a blackboard set to the front bears Arnel?s words: “Education can be found anywhere. It is a road to progress.” The bicycle allows Arnel to visit faraway areas. He sets up an outdoor classroom and invites teenagers to his class three days a week. Many of the children have been out of school for years. Arnel also offers adult education to help out-of-school young people learn high school lessons. He does not receive any money but accepts school supplies and food for the students. He says, “I want to bring education to as many children and adults as possible. Everyone should have a chance.” 30. Who decided Arnel should go to school at first? A. His mother. government. 31. Why did Arnel return to his hometown to teach the street children? A. Because there were no schools in his hometown. B. Because he didn?t want to teach rich children only. C. Because he considered it?s his duty to help the poor. D. Because the country?s education should be improved. 32. How does Arnel make his living? A. By serving rich families. C. By receiving his family?s help. B. By accepting school supplies. D. By offering lessons for adults. B. He himself. C. His teacher. D. The
A. Teacher on Wheels C. Road to Progress
B. Classes for the Poor D. Students in the Street

She was the only woman tough enough to make me read Beowulf and think for a few stupid days that I liked it. From 1938 to 1942, she taught me English, history — and a lot more than I realized. I shall never forget the day she scolded (批评) me into reading Beowulf. “But Miss Bessie,” I complained, “I ain?t much interested in it.” Her large brown eyes became sharp. “Boy,” she said, “how dare you say ?ain?t? to me! I?ve taught you better than that.” “Miss Bessie,” I said, “I?m trying to join the football team, and if I go around saying ?it isn?t? and ?they aren?t,? the guys are gonna laugh me off the team.” “Boy,” she replied, “you?ll play football because you have guts (勇气). But do you know what really takes guts? Refusing to lower your standards to those of the crowd. It takes guts to say you?ve got to live and be somebody fifty years after all the football games are over.” I started saying “it isn?t” and “they aren?t,” and I still joined the team without losing my friends? respect. Negroes, as we were called then, were not allowed in the town library, except to sweep floors or clean tables. But with the help of some nice whites, Miss Bessie kept getting books out of the white library. That is how she introduced me to the Bront?s, Byron and Keats. “If you don?t read, you can?t write, and if you can?t write, you might as well stop dreaming,” Miss Bessie once told me.
So I read whatever Miss Bessie told me to, and tried to remember the things she insisted that I store away. It could be embarrassing to be unprepared when Miss Bessie said, “Get up and tell the class who Frances Perkins is and what you think about her.” Forty-five years later, I can still recite her “truths to live by”. Miss Bessie noticed things that had nothing to do with schoolwork, but were essential to a youngster?s development. Once a few classmates made fun of my worn-out hand-me-down overcoat. As I was leaving school, Miss Bessie patted me on the back of that old overcoat and said, “Carl, never worry about what you don?t have. Just make the most of what you do have — a brain.” No child can get all the necessary support at home, and millions of poor children get no support at all. This is what makes a wise, educated, warm-hearted teacher like Miss Bessie so essential to the minds, hearts and souls of this country?s children. 7. The underlined words “towering presence” in the first paragraph means _______. A. Miss Bessie was strong enough to influence her students B. Miss Bessie was watching the students all the time C. the students thought she was tall and heavy D. the students felt nervous in front of her 8. What can we infer from the passage? A. Carl?s friends came from poor families. B. Carl hated to read Beowulf in public. C. Miss Bessie wanted Carl to be a better man. D. Miss Bessie didn?t want Carl to play football. 9. Miss Bessie asked Carl to read a lot because _______. A. his parents were too poor to afford books B. he was not allowed into the library C. the whites didn?t want the blacks to read D. she expected him to have a goal in life 10. Which of the following would be the best title of the passage? A. Dreams Go with Education B. An Unforgettable Lesson C. Unforgettable Miss Bessie D. Reading Makes a Full Man
