She came to this country with her family on a tiny ship during World War I when she was only 8 years old. During the trip she survived stormy seas，little food, and an attack by a German U-boat. After getting here，her large family worked hard to build a new life in America. They never had much money but were rich in love. One day，when I was about 5 or 6 years old, my parents and brothers went on a trip. It was just me and Nanny in the house for the weekend. Nanny seemed so happy to be taking care of me all by herself. She made me a special breakfast that first morning. However, all I could do was to complain about how the food was not how Mom always made it. Nanny quietly put down the plate and went into the living room. I followed a minute later and saw that she had tears in her eyes. It was the first time I had ever seen my strong and proud grandmother cry and I was the one who had caused it. I walked over to Nanny, climbed on her lap, and for the first time in my short life I did something else too. I
apologized without being told to and asked Nanny to forgive me. She smiled, rubbed my head, and told me I was a good boy even though I didn’t feel like one then. That memory just like my Nanny’s love will stay in my heart forever. It is a sign of both strength and wisdom. Asking for forgiveness helps us to learn, to grow, and to love. 60.

As far as the origin of rap music is concerned, most people agree that it is from Afro-American and Latino Street culture of New York City. Not only in this city but in the surrounding areas there is the influence of African people and their culture. Rap is a vocal (口头的) style in which the performer speaks rhythmically and in rhyme, generally to a beat. The term of rap music is the same with hip-hop music typically-consisting of a rhythmic vocal style called rap. If we see it carefully, then we will definitely notice that the music usually is sung at higher pitches (调). Most of the time rap music is associated with chorus. Though rap music was primarily an American music style with African influence over its music and lyrics, recently it has been spread to almost the entire world. There is hardly any country or nation where rap music cannot be seen in some form or another, and it is one of the most popular music styles among the youngsters. However, when it comes to its history, it is believed that hip-hop or rap music started in the early 1970s，and gained much popularity throughout the world during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The history of rap music and hip-hop music is full of controversies (争议) and bans, as the lyrics sometimes relate to drugs and crime; even most famous pop stars and hip-hop musicians and singers were found to be associated with the controversies in their life. For that reason, no matter how popular this music style was or still is, it has always had a bad reputation in the eyes of mainstream society. 64. The passage is mainly about _____. A. when rap music started B. how rap music develops C. what rap music is like D. why rap music is popular 65. The characteristics of rap music are _____. A. solo, rhymes，beats and pops B. speaking, rhythms，beats and solo C. repeating, speaking, pops and chorus D. speaking, rhymes, beats and chorus 66. Rap music is now one of the music styles mostly run after by _____. A. the teenagers in Africa B. all kinds of people in the world
C. the youngsters all over the world D. the young people in the US 67. Rap music is often not well thought of by the mainstream because _____. A. it comes from the lower class B. it has a short history C. it is associated with crimes and drugs D. its music is full of controversies D Children today would rather toy with new technologies. The role of children has changed as well as that of teens. The world has truly evolved (进化）throughout the years. Today，a typical day in the life of a five year old is entirely different from what it once was. A few decades ago children used to work. They did the kind of work parents do today. Today there are shows on which children are putting pounds of makeup on and have flashing things all over their bodies. This makes a child want to paper over all of their imperfections. They think they have to look perfect all the time. Teens have changed as well. My grandma got married when she was thirteen. Girls who had an arranged marriage had no time to play because they were expected to cook, clean，take care of the kids, and do housework every single day. Today，we go to school every morning, maybe participate in some after-school activities, and possibly go to work for extra cash. Then we go home and do homework, and eat. After all of this we have to find the time to socialize by texting, talking on the phone, or logging on to social networking sites. We enjoy ourselves a lot. The generation before us complains about how they did not have the things we have now. They say we are not appreciative and do not value life or just do not care about our futures anymore. Let's make a change! The youth have the power to work on whatever they believe in and make a difference in the world. Take advantage of your resources. It is never too late to make a positive change in our world. 68. The role of children and teens has changed mainly because _____. A. new technologies are developing and widely used B. they don't have to work hard as their parents did C. their world has truly evolved D. they look perfect all the time 69. The underlined phrase (in the 2nd Para. ) probably means to _____. A. put up with B. make up for C. put aside D. cover up 70. We can learn from the text that nowadays teenagers _____. A. do housework as their parents did B. are having a social life in richer ways C. are seldom satisfied with what they have D. don't appreciate and value life 71. The author's attitude towards changes of teen’s life is _____. A. critical B. neutral C. optimistic D. complaining E Snow falls in the Earth’s extreme North and South throughout the year. However， the heaviest snowfalls have been reported in the mountains of other areas during winter. Snow is even known to fall near the Equator (赤道)， but only on the highest mountains. Snow contains much less water than rain, but much of the water the world uses comes from snow. Melting snow provides water for rivers, electric power stations and agricultural crops. In the western United States, mountain snow provides up to seventy-five percent of all surface water supplies. Snowfall helps to protect plants and some wild animals from winter weather. Fresh snow is made largely of air trapped among the snow crystals (晶体). Because the air has trouble moving, the movement of heat is limited. Snow also influences the movement of sound waves. The surface of the snow takes in, or absorbs, sound waves. As snow grows older or if there have been strong winds, it can become hard and flat. Then, the snow，s surface will help to send back sound waves.
Snow may be beautiful, but it can be deadly. It is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people. Many people die in traffic accidents on roads covered with snow and ice or from being seriously stuck in the winter storm. Others die from heart attacks caused by too much physical activity out in the cold. People may not be able to avoid living in areas where it snows often. However, they can avoid becoming victims of snowstorms. People should stop driving and stay at home until the storm has passed. People living in these areas should carry emergency supplies in their vehicle. These include food， emergency medical supplies， and extra clothing to stay warm and dry. 72. Mountain snowfall _____. A. is heavier than that in the South and the North Poles B. has never occurred near the Equator of the earth C. brings less of the water the world uses than rain does D. provides up to seventy—five percent of water supplies worldwide 73. Snow protects plants and wild animals from cold weather by _____. A. supplying much more air B. limiting heat movement C. absorbing strong winds D. sending back sound waves 74. Snow can be deadly mainly because it can _____. A. cause road accidents B. make people stuck in winter storms C. lead to heart attacks D. make people victims of snowstorms 75. What will the text probably tell us following the last paragraph? _. A. How to drive during snowstorms B. Where we can get emergency supplies C. How to prevent heart attacks out in cold D. Why we should stay warm and dry in winter
第 II 卷(非选择题，共 35 分） 第四部分：写作(共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节任务型读写 (共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分)阅读下面短文，根据所读内容在表格中的空白处填入 恰当的单词。 注意：每个空格只填一个单词。 True friends are rare to come by these days. Even if you believe you’ve connected with someone, how do you really know he is a true friend? And often you will find that someone who you thought you could trust may have let you down. There are ways you can know if a friendship is true and how you can hold onto that friend. A true friend is someone who will be there for you no matter what happens. Through good times and bad times，they will stand by you. They will accept you for who you are without trying to change you，and they will be there to help you grow in new ways. Trust is another important aspect. A true friend will keep your secrets. They will be honest and be someone you can depend on. They will listen and be someone you know you can talk things over with，even if they may not have advice to share with you. Friendship is a two-way street though. To find true friends and keep them, you must in turn be the same as well. Be there for them in their hard times and share the good times with them. Be someone your friends can depend on as well and offer them the same things they give to you. A friendship will fall apart fast if only one person is giving and putting all the effort in. If you are the only one making an effort, be honest. There will be barriers in the road but that is the test of true friendship. If it can survive those barriers， will be it stronger and better than ever. St Thomas Aquinas said, “There is nothing on this earth more prized than friendship" and it holds true.
