Don’t you think there’s something to learn from the tortoise?‖ Sonny opened his eyes wide, ―Do you mean next time when I’m entering for the 60-metre race I should wish that Billy, Tony and Sandy would all fall asleep halfway?‖ I was shocked, ―But the tortoise didn’t wish that the hare would fall asleep!‖ ―He must have wished that,‖ Sonny said, ―Otherwise how could he be so foolish as to race with the hare? He knew very well the hare ran a hundred times faster than he himself did.‖ ―He didn’t have such a wish,‖ I insisted. ―He won the race by perseverance, by pushing on steadily.‖ Sonny thought a while. ―That’s a lie,‖ he said. ―He won it because he was lucky.

Societies all over the world name places in similar ways. Quite often there is no official naming ceremony but places tend to be called names as points of reference by people. Then an organized body steps in and gives the place a name. Frequently it happens that a place has two names: One is named by the people and the other by the government. As in many areas, old habits died hard, and the place continues to be called by its unofficial name long after the meaning is lost. Many roads and places in Singapore are named in order that the pioneers will be remembered by future generations. Thus we have names such as Stamford Road and Raffles Place. This is in keeping with traditions in many countries ---- in both the West and the East. Another way of naming places is naming them after other places. Perhaps they were named to promote friendships between the two places or it could be that the people who used to live there were originally from the places that the roads were named after. The mystery is clearer when we see some of the roads named in former British bases. If you step into Selector Airbase you will see Piccadilly Circus ---- obviously named by some homesick Royal Air Force personnel. Some places were named after the activities that used to go on at those places. Bras Basah Road is an interesting example, ―Bras Basah‖ means ―wet rice‖ in Malay(马来语). Now why would anyone want to name a road ―Wet Rice Road‖? The reason is simple. During the pioneering days, wet rice was laid out to dry along this road. A few roads in Singapore are named by their shapes. There is ―Circular Road‖ for one. Other roads may have part of their names to describe their shapes, like ―Paya Lebar Crescent‖. This road is called a crescent (月牙) because it begins on the main road, makes a crescent and comes back to join the main road again. 66. We learn from Paragraph 1 that _____. A. the government is usually the first to name a place B. many places tend to have more than one name C. a ceremony will be held when a place is named D. people prefer the place names given by the government 67. What does the underlined phrase ―die hard‖ in Paragraph 1 probably mean? ______________. A. Change suddenly. B. Change significantly. C. Disappear mysteriously. D. Disappear very slowly. 68. Which of the following places is named after a person? ______________. A. Raffles Place. B. Selector Airbase. C. Piccadilly Circus. D. Paya Lebar Crescent. 69. Bras Basah Road is named _______. A. after a person B. after a place C. after an activity D. by its shape 70. What can be inferred from the passage? ______________. A. Some place names in Singapore are the same as in Britain. B. Some places in Singapore are named for military purposes. C. The way Singaporeans name their places is unique. D. Young Singaporeans have forgotten the pioneers. C The practice of students endlessly copying letters and sentences from a blackboard is a thing of the past. With the coming of new technologies like computers and smart phone, writing by hand has become something of nostalgic (怀旧的 )skill. However, while today’s educators are using
more and more technology in their teaching, many believe basic handwriting skills are still necessary for students to be successful---both in school and in life. Virginia Berninger, professor of educational psychology at the University of Washington, says it’s important to continue teaching handwriting and help children acquire the skill of writing by hand. Berninger and her colleagues conducted a study that looked at the ability of students to complete various writing tasks---both on a computer and by hand. The study, published in 2009, found that when writing with a pen and paper, participants wrote longer essays and more complete sentences and had a faster word production rate. In a more recent study, Berninger looked at what role spelling plays in a student’s writing skills and found that how well children spell is tied to know well they can write. ―Spelling makes some of the thinking parts of the brain active which helps us access our vocabulary, word meaning and concepts. It is allowing our written language to connect with ideas.‖ Berninger said. Spelling helps students translate ideas into words in their mind first and then to transcribe (转 换) ―those words in the mind written symbols on paper or keyboard and screen,‖ the study said. Seeing the words in the ―mind’s eye‖ helps children not only to turn their ideas into words, says Berninger, but also to spot (发现) spelling mistakes when they write the words down and to correct then over time. ―In our computer age, some people believe that we don’t have to teach spelling because we have spell checks,‖ she said. ―But until a child has a functional spelling ability of about a fifth grade level, they won’t have the knowledge to choose the correct spelling among the options given by the computer.‖ 71. What makes writing by hand a thing of the past? ______________. A. The absence of blackboard in classroom. B. The use of new technologies in teaching. C. The lack of practice in handwriting. D. The popular use of smartphones. 72. Berninger’s study published in 2009 ___________. A. focused on the difference between writing by hand and on a computer. B. indicated that students prefer to write with a pen and paper. C. found that good essays are made up of long sentences. D. discussed the importance of writing speed. 73. Which of the following best shows the role of spelling? ______________. A. Spelling improves one’s memory of words. B. Spelling ability is closely related to writing ability. C. Spelling benefits the translation from words into ideas. D. Spelling slows down finding exact words to express ideas. 74. What does ―mind’s eye‖ in paragraph 5 mean? ______________. A. Window. B. Soul C. Picture. D. Imagination. 75. What conclusion could be drawn from the passage? ______________. A. Computers can help people with their choice of words. B. Spell checks can take the place of spelling teaching. C. Handwriting still has a place in today’s classrooms. D. Functional spelling ability develops fast in the fifth grade. 非选择题部分（共 30 分）
