Their parents believe in them and their abilities and try to persuade them with the support and examples they need. Positive-minded parents are 36 in themselves and their own skills. They remain calm and focused during 37 times. This will provide the child with the 38 he/she needs to become the same type of individual ---secure in himself/herself and his/her abilities. In an article titled “Why Positive Parenting?” psychologist Laura Markham states that 39 positive parenting “kids reap the rewards of good behavior— good grades, self-esteem and 40 from peers. It becomes part of their self-image, and they automatically act to 41 that self-image.” Children with positive parents are more 42 to be motivated to do well in their personal lives and academic environments. Being able to self-direct themselves towards goals will give them the 43 that will push them to excellence. 44 parenting increases children?s chances of learning how to 45 challenges and reach objectives without coddling. Markham said she believed that love, not physical 46 or force, “becomes a more effective motivator over time.” A child raised by a parent with a positive attitude has a 47 to become an optimist. According to author of the “The Optimistic Child”, raising children is about identifying and expanding their 48 and virtues and helping them live these positive traits to the 49 . A parent?s goal is to produce well-adjusted, independent children. Positive parenting encourages children to learn how to do activities on their own. Mistakes and 50 become opportunities to develop a stronger character and learn new skills. Positive parents encourage their children to try again when their 51 fail. Their children will learn to 52 the good or the lesson in a difficult event or 53 outcome. Parents who

Despite the windfall, Jump, a longtime teacher at Central Fellowship Christian Academy in Macon, Georgia, has no plans to quit the work she considers her calling. She spoke with us about her secrets for creating units that kids and fellow teachers can?t resist. How did you get the idea of selling your work online? Deanna Jump: I?ve always created my own activities and units, and I?ve always shared them with my fellow teachers. A few years ago, we were in our weekly team meeting, and one of my team members said, “Your stuff is so good. You?ve got to put it on Teachers Pay Teachers.” She gave me the link, and I got started. That was 2009. The first year, my sales were really slow. I made about $300. At the time I thought that was great. How has the income changed your life? Deanna Jump: We teachers in America don?t make a whole lot of money, so I really consider it a blessing. I have a brother who?s a quadriplegic. For about 13 years, he was stuck at home unless he had a doctor ?s appointment. With my first big check, we bought him a van so our mother could take him to the movies and the park. I try to be careful with the money. I gave some to my community. But I still drive a Kia. I still live in the same house. What advice would you give fellow teachers who might want to sell their lessons? Deanna Jump: Stay true to yourself. My teaching style is reflected in my units. I don?t try to say, “Okay, how would this teacher over here to do it?” and try to create something for her. Also, be a teacher first, and a seller second. Be careful to make sure that you don?t say, “Oh, my goodness, I haven?t put anything out for two months.

I need to get something out.” I never think like that. But so many people do. I create things with my students in mind. 56. The underlined word “windfall” in Paragraph 1 probably means _________. A. top secret B. good stuff C. great difficulty D. sudden gain 57. Deanna Jump?s lessons __________. A. brought her great fame B. were put online by her colleague C. sold well as soon as they were put online D. were created with the help of her colleague 58. Deanna Jump will probably share her lesson plan if _________. A. she is in need of it B. it?s successful in her classroom C. it?s expected to be a good seller D. she adopts a new teaching style B When we analyze the salt salinity (盐浓度) of ocean waters, we find that it varies only slightly from place to place. Nevertheless, some of these small changes are important. There are three basic processes that cause a change in oceanic salinity. One of these is the subtraction (减少) of water from the ocean by means of evaporation (蒸发). In this manner, the salinity is increased, since the salt stays behind. If this is carried to the extreme, of course, white salt would be left behind; this, by the way, is how much of the table salt we use is actually obtained. The opposite of evaporation is precipitation, such as rain, by which water is added to the ocean. Here the ocean is being diluted (稀释) so that the salinity is decreased. This may occur in areas of high rainfall or in coastal regions where rivers flow into the ocean. Thus salinity may be increased by the subtraction of water by evaporation, or decreased by the addition of fresh water by precipitation. Normally, in hot regions where the sun is very strong, the ocean salinity is somewhat higher than it is in other parts of the world where there is not as much evaporation. Similarly, in coastal regions where rivers dilute the sea, salinity is somewhat lower than in other oceanic areas. A third process by which salinity may be altered is associated with the formation and melting of sea ice. When seawater is frozen, the dissolved materials are left behind. In this manner, seawater directly beneath freshly formed sea ice has a higher salinity than it did before the ice appeared. Of course, when this ice melts, it will tend to decrease the salinity of the surrounding water. In the Weddell Sea, the densest water in the ocean is formed as a result of this freezing process, which increases the salinity of cold water. This heavy water sinks and is found in the deeper portion of the oceans of the world. 59. This passage mainly tells us about_______. A. the analysis of the salinity of ocean waters B. the causes of the variation in oceanic salinity C. the importance of the changes in oceanic salinity D. the different forms of salts in ocean waters 60. It can be known from the passage that increase in the salinity of ocean water is caused by______. A. melting of sea ice B. precipitation C. evaporation D. supplement of salt 61. Which of the following is not the cause of the decrease in the oceanic salinity? A. Precipitation. B. Rain and snow. C. Formation of ice. D. Addition of water by rivers. 62. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. Oceanic salinity has great effect on sea life. B. Many factors combine to cause changes in oceanic salinity. C. The movement of the water is related to the amount of salt. D. The temperature of the water has much to do with the oceanic salinity.

C Call it the learning paradox: the more you struggle and even fail while you?re trying to learn new information, the better you?re likely to recall and apply that information later. The learning paradox is at the heart of “productive failure,” a phenomenon identified by researcher Manu Kapur points out that while the model adopted by many teachers when introducing students to new knowledge providing lots of structure and guidance early on, until the students show that they can do it on their own makes intuitive sense, it may not be the best way to promote learning. Rather, it?s better to let the learners wrestle with the material on their own for a while, refraining from giving them any assistance at the start. In a paper published recently, Kapur applied the principle of productive failure to mathematical problem solving in three schools. With one group of students, the teacher provided strong “scaffolding”--instructional support and feedback. With the teacher ?s help, these pupils were able to find the answers to their set of problems. Meanwhile, a second group was directed to solve the same problems by collaborating with one another, without any prompts from their instructor. These students weren?t able to complete the problems correctly. But in the course of trying to do so, they generated a lot of ideas about the nature of the problems and about what potential solutions would look like. And when the two groups were tested on what they?d learned the second group “significantly outperformed” the first. The apparent struggles of the floundering (挣扎的) group have what Kapur calls a “hidden efficacy”: they lead people to understand the deep structure of problems, not simply their correct solutions. When these students encounter a new problem of the same type on a test, they?re able to transfer the knowledge they?ve gathered more effectively than those who were the passive recipients of someone else?s expertise. In the real world, problems rarely come neatly packaged, so being able to discern their deep structure is key. But, Kapur notes, none of us like to fail, no matter how often Silicon Valley entrepreneurs praise the beneficial effects of an idea that fails or a start-up company that crashes and burns. So we need to “design for productive failure” by building it into the learning process, Kapur has identified three conditions that promote this kind of beneficial struggle. First, choose problems to work on that “challenge but do not frustrate.” Second, provide learners with opportunities to explain and elaborate on what they?re doing. Third, give learners the chance to compare and contrast good and bad solutions to the problems. And to those students who protest this tough-love teaching style: you?ll thank me later. 63. Why does the author call the learning process a paradox? A. Pains do not necessarily lead to gains. B. What is learned is rarely applicable in life. C. Failure more often than not breeds success. D. The more is taught, the less is learned. 64. What does Kapur disapprove of in teaching? A. Asking students to find and solve problems on their own. B. Developing students ability to apply what they learn. C. Giving students detailed guidance and instruction. D. Allowing students a free hand in problem solving. 65. What do people tend to think of providing strong scaffolding in teaching? A. It will make teaching easier. B. It is a sensible way of teaching. C. It can motivate average students. D. It will enhance students confidence. 66. What kind of problem should be given to students to solve according to Kapur? A. It should be able to encourage collaborative learning. B. It should be easy enough so as not to frustrate students. C. It should be solvable by average students with ease.

D. It should be difficult enough but still within their reach. 67. What can be expected of this tough-love teaching style? A. Students will be grateful in the long run. B. Teachers will meet with a lot of resistance. C. Parents will think it too harsh on their kids. D. It may not be able to yield the desired results. D John Blanchard stood up from the bench, straightened his Army uniform, and studied the crowd of people making their way through Grand Central Station. He looked for the girl whose heart he knew, but whose face he didn?t, the girl with the rose. His interest in her had begun thirteen months before in a Florida library. Taking a book off the shelf he found himself intrigued, not with the words of the book, but with the notes penciled in the margin. The soft handwriting reflected a thoughtful soul and insightful mind. In the front of the book, he discovered the previous owner?s name, Miss Hollis Maynell. With time and effort he located her address. She lived in New York City. He wrote her a letter introducing himself and inviting her to correspond. The next day he was shipped overseas for service in World War II. During the next year and one month the two grew to know each other through the mail. Each letter was a seed falling on a fertile heart. A romance was starting Blanchard requested a photograph, but she refused. She felt that if he really cared, it wouldn?t matter what she looked like. When the day finally came for him to return from Europe, they scheduled their first meeting —7:00 PM at the Grand Central Station in New York. “You?ll recognize me,” she wrote, “by the red rose I?ll be wearing on my lapel.” So at 7:00 he was in the station looking for a girl whose heart he loved, but whose face he?d never seen. I?ll let Mr. Blanchard tell you what happened: A young woman was coming toward me, her figure long and slim. Her blonde hair lay back in curls from her delicate ears; her eyes were blue as flowers. Her lips and chin had a gentle firmness, and in her pale green suit she was like springtime come alive. I stared at her, entirely forgetting to notice that she was not wearing a rose. As I moved, a small, attractive smile curved her lips. “Going my way , sailor?” she murmured. Almost uncontrollably I made one step closer to her, and then I saw Hollis Maynell. She was standing almost directly behind the girl. A woman well past 40, she had graying hair tucked under a worn hat. She was more than plump, her thick-ankled feet thrust into low-heeled shoes. The girl in the green suit was walking quickly away. I felt as though I was split in two, so keen was my desire to follow her, and yet so deep was my longing for the woman whose spirit had truly companioned me and upheld my own. And there she stood. Her pale, plump face was gentle and sensible, her gray eyes had a warm and kindly twinkle. I did not hesitate. My fingers gripped the small worn blue leather copy of the book that was to identify me to her. This would not be love, but it would be something precious, something perhaps even better than love, a friendship for which I had been and must ever be grateful. I squared my shoulders and saluted and held out the book to the woman, even though while I spoke I felt choked by the bitterness of my disappointment. “I'm Lieutenant John Blanchard, and you must be Miss Maynell. I am so glad you could meet me; may I take you to dinner?” The woman?s face broadened into a tolerant smile. “I don't know what this is about, son,” she answered, “but the young lady in the green suit who just went by, she begged me to wear this rose on my coat. And she said if you were to ask me out to dinner, I should go and tell you that she is waiting for you in the big restaurant across the street. She said it was some kind of test!” It's not difficult to understand and admire Miss Maynell's wisdom. The true nature of a heart is seen in its response to the unattractive. “Tell me whom you love,” Houssaye wrote,

请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。 注意：每个空格只填 1 个单词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。 China is the top country of origin for international students in the USA, with more than 274,000 Chinese students reportedly accounting for 31 percent of all international students at USA universities. Many Chinese parents save up a lot of money for their children to purse an overseas education. Is it worth spending big to study abroad? You?re welcome to leave your views. Futsanglung (UK) Sadly too many Chinese parents think a foreign education is best for their kids and expense is no problem. I often feel this is a mistake as the education a Chinese child gets in a foreign country is very different to what they are used to and they often struggle. Hopefully this will change. Chinese universities will improve and more bright kids will study in their home land in the future. Arsa (Russia) I went to study abroad when I was 17. I went to UK from Russia. First year was a total waste. I was away from parental control for the first time and as it happens I met plenty of Russian students in my college and we spent most of our time shopping, hanging out at cafes and clubbing. We studied sometimes but it wasn?t until two years later that I realized that my English hadn?t improved. I had trouble understanding my lecturers and my assignments kept coming back with poor scores. I changed my mindset entirely and started studying hard. I ended up staying in UK for 10 years. It opened a lot of doors and introduced me to great people, so I?m all for studying abroad. But Chinese students do tend to stick together which does nothing for their English, or network building ─ biggest reason why you?d want to go abroad in the first place, besides getting a fancy certificate. Chuck14 (Canada) Here in Canada I work with Chinese students who come here to go to high school. My wife and I find homestays for these students and watch over them and their homestay families for the entire time they are here. The student is not prepared properly to go into a stranger ?s home and struggle with language and cultural barriers. We work to make it as easy for the student and their family as much as we can. One thing we emphasize to each student is the enormous opportunity they have to be immersed into a native English speaker ?s home. Many times the student will feel lost for a while and stay shut in their room usually qq?ing or skyping back home to their friends. We see this as normal behavior for a while at least. Some students have planned out their futures with education and experience from abroad to take back to China. Others do not, I?m afraid, and obviously the experience will do them no good for their future. Although it is natural for all Chinese students to hang out together, so many of them miss out on the English opportunity in their homestay. We also encourage our homestay families that they seize an opportunity to experience China through their student. The experience alone is valuable

for any teenager growing up and so I think it should continue. Truth (US) There is a perception (or misconception) that American education is the best in the world. Chinese parents, who highly value education, therefore push their kids to American colleges. Increasingly, they are also sending their children overseas earlier, at junior or high school level. American education teaches critical thinking and creativity. Chinese education is based too much on memorization. This style of thinking, however popular, is not correct. The non-quantifiable forms of learning come from a student?s innate interest and appetite for the subject. Many great entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Steve Jobs never finished college. So much for the vaunted higher education.

As Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the US, said, ?We grow great by dreams.?” “All big men are dreamers.” They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire on a long winter?s evening.

He emphasized the importance of dreams and suggested that people should have dreams and never give them up. What is known to us is that a dream is of great importance to one?s growth and success. Once you decide what your dream is, you know where to go, and which way to take. Now my dream is that I?ll try my best to be the study winner. Now everything I do is close to my dream. I feel life is filled with hope and is colourful, and I have enough confidence to realize my dream. Of course, the path from where you are to where you want to get is not always smooth and straight. Therefore, an optimistic, positive mind is necessary in the process of your seeking your dream. In a word, only if you have a dream will you have the chance of realizing it. 录音材料 Text 1 W: Why is the floor so wet? M: No sooner had I gotten into the shower than the phone rang. Text 2 W: The book is so interesting. M: If you like it, I can lend it to you. I borrowed it from the library one week ago and there are still two weeks left. Text 3 W: Let?s get something to drink and then go to see the elephant. M: But the dolphin show starts in two minutes. I really want to see that. We can get a cup of tea afterwards. W: Good idea. Text 4 W: You look happy. M: I am. I had my performance evaluation today. W: So it went well. M: The manager said my interpersonal skills are great. I work well with others. Text 5 M: Did you get a present for Molly?s birthday? W: Yes, she loves to listen to Johnny Holden?s music. And she?s got all his CDs. Then I saw this book that

introduces Johnny Holden?s life, so I got her this. M: Great idea! Text 6 W: Did you get the injury playing football, Jim? M: Yes, one of the boys kicked my foot instead of the ball. W: The best thing for you to do is to rest your leg for 48hours. M: When can I get back to school? W: You can go back in 4 days, but you?ll need to avoid sports for a month. Text 7 M: Hello. W: I have just been to collect your new basketball shirt from the school. M: Yeah, what do they look like? W: I don?t know if you like them as much as last season?s－you had white ones then, remember? And the yellow picture on it made it easy to see you guys on the basketball field, didn?t it? But this year they are just plain, no picture. Same color, anyway. I can bring them to your house to see what you think. M: OK. W: But it?s a bit late to change them, I guess Text 8 W: Hello, Dan. I was sorry to hear that you had an accident last week. How did it happen and how are you feeling now? M: Well, I was riding on my bicycle along the street when a taxi driver suddenly made a sharp turn in front of me. I could not stop my bicycle in time and I was knocked down. Fortunately, I only got a broken arm and a broken leg. The doctor said that I would have to stay in hospital for at least a week. W: Do your arm and leg hurt now? M: Yes, my leg hurt badly, but I can bear the pain. The only thing that I?m worried about is my classes. You know, our teacher said next week we would have our mid-term exams. W: Well, don?t worry about the exams. I can help you. M: Thank you, but I don?t really want to stay here that long. Anyway, thank you for coming to see me. Text 9 M: I have with me this evening Louise Graham, a group leader at Ravensfield Outdoor Adventure Center for children. Louise, how long have you been here? W: Well, before I first went there, two years ago, I thought I?d probably only stay for a year, but after six months or so I really started to enjoy the job. So I?ve been there ever since. To be honest, I was lacking in self-confidence, and when I first arrived, I was a bit worried about making mistakes. I was frightened I might put children in danger because of my inexperience. M: What?s the best thing about your work? W: One thing I like is seeing them have so much fun, even if sometimes their behaviors isn?t perfect. And I can suggest activities that haven?t been tried before. But there are always some children who haven?t quite got as much ability as others, and for me the most rewarding part of the job is getting them to succeed in things they haven?t managed to do before. It?s hard work though. Sometimes you are on duty at night. M: Mm, what do you think about that? W: Well, I can say I look forward to starting work at 10:00 p.m., but the kids have to be looked after 24 hours so someone has to do it and all the staff take turns.

Last year it was early holiday posters; but this time the exhibition will be of railway posters. The exhibition opens on Monday. Admission is free, and the exhibition is open from ten until five every day. If you can spend some time there, I?m sure you will enjoy yourself. There?s a special feature at the Arts Center this week. It?s the very first performance of a new play. The Rose Garden, by a local writer, Alan Brown. This is Alan?s first stage play, but many of you have enjoyed his films on television. The play will be on Saturday. Be sure to book your seats as soon as possible, if you have not done yet. If you like his film very much, I believe this play won?t let you down. There is also a film, Detective in the shadows, being shown this Sunday at the Arts Center Cinema. Book the tickets in advance just in case that you can?t get a ticket the very day you come to see the film. The place to go to make reservations is the Tourist Center.
