A study found a(an) __36___ result in young children: the more stories read to them, the __37__ their ―theory of mind,‖ or mental model of other people’s intentions. ―Deep reading‖ —as __38__ to the superficial reading we do on the Web — is an __39__ practice, one we should take steps to __40__ as we would a historic building or a significant work of art. Its __41__ would put in danger the intellectual and emotional development of generations growing up online, as well as literature that can be __42__ only by readers whose brains, quite __43__ , have been trained to understand them. Recent research has demonstrated that deep reading is a __44__ experience, different from the mere decoding of words. __45__ deep reading does not, strictly speaking, require a __46__ book, the built-in limits of the printed page are uniquely conducive(有助于) to the deep reading experience. A book’s lack of hyperlinks, for example, __47__ the reader from making decisions — Should I click on this link or not? — __48__ her to remain fully immersed in the narrative. The deep reading of books and the information-driven reading we do on the Web are different, both __49__ the experience they produce and the __50__ they develop. A growing body of evidence suggests that online reading may be less __51__ and less satisfying, even for the ―digital natives‖ for whom it is so familiar. When readers are enjoying the experience the most, the __52__ of their reading actually slows. The __53__ of fast, fluent decoding of words and slow, unhurried progress on the page gives deep readers time to enrich their reading with __54__, analysis, and opinions. It gives them time to establish an close relationship with the author, the two of them engaged in an extended __55__ like people falling in love. 36. A. different B. similar C. efficient D. unbelievable 37. A. quicker B. stronger C. keener D. higher 38. A. contradicted B. equal C. opposed D. relevant 39. A. interesting B. endangered C. authentic D. unconscious 40. A. preserve B. prevent C. reserve D. promote 41. A. practice B. existence C. appearance D. disappearance 42. A. recited B. read C. covered D. appreciated 43. A. differently B. similarly C. literally D. strangely 44. A. distinctive B. difficult C. valid D. reasonable 45. A. Since B. Because C. However D. Although 46. A. conventional B. complicated C. convenient D. confidential 47. A. limits B. bans C. frees D. protects 48. A. forcing B. allowing C. requiring D. encouraging 49.

56. SEG has a group of schools for people who are interested in ______. A. hotel and tourism B. food and health C. sports and arts D. science and technology 57. To know more about SEG, one can choose all the following but ______. A. calling the group B. emailing the group C. visiting a campus D. faxing the group B (REUTERS/Jason Lee) Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of China’s central bank, a high-level Chinese official on Sunday made the government’s first admission that the country’s economic slowdown was not going as planned. He told a meeting of regional leaders that his country’s growth rate had tumbled "a bit too much." "China's inflation is also declining, so we need to be very careful to see if the disinflation trend will continue, and if deflation will happen or not," said Zhou, His remarks were made at the Boao Forum for Asia, an annual conference on the island of Hainan in southern China. Zhou added that China could "have room to act" by taking "quantitative measures" and setting interest rates. For many, the way he described China’s health was no surprise. The country’s economy has not been growing this slowly since the 1990s. Companies in debt are seeing sickly profit margins.
Banks are carrying loads of debt, too, and the housing market is slowing. China’s official 2015 GDP growth target is 7%, but that seems shaky. Acknowledging that significant intervention has to be on the table is a big deal for China. Everyone has known for years that this slowdown was coming because the government is purposely transitioning its economy from one based on foreign investment to one based on domestic consumption. It is a brutal process, but the government knows it is the only way the country will become the self-sustaining superpower it wants to be.
(Barlcays)Until now, while the Chinese government had acknowledged the slowdown was
rough, it had assured the world that the situation was under control. Just a few weeks ago, Chinese officials were saying they would be monitoring deflation but still were not that keen on intervening with policy measures. Now it seems they are warming to the idea. In January, China’s headline consumer price inflation hit 0.8%, then it bounced back up to 1.4% in February. March probably isn’t looking that great either from the People’s Bank of China’s point.
"Widening PPI deflation and soft CPI inflation, especially after adjusting for seasonal effects, point to persistent deflation risks," Barclays wrote after February's number came out. "In our view, the monetary policy needs to be more 'proactive' in order to deal with the cyclical challenges in the near term." 58. Which of the following illustrates ―growth rate had tumbled‖ in Paragraph 1? A. setting interest rates B. economic transition C. bounce of CPI D. FIGURE 1 59. We can infer from the passage that one of the solutions to the slowdown could be _______ if needed. A. monitoring deflation B. expanding foreign investment C. making new policy measures D. reducing domestic consumption 60. Which of the following could be the best title for the passage? A. Zhou's admission is a big deal and a little bit irresponsible. B. The Chinese government has admitted that things aren't going so well. C. China should be more active in its struggle against inflation. D. China's economy has been growing fast since the 1990s. C Alan, 17, was randomly shot and killed by a gang member. His father, Keith, and his mother, Donna, were filled with anger as they followed the all-consuming ongoing investigation into the killing. A close couple, friends of Keith and Donna's, dropped in one evening and said to them, "You have to accept this loss. Your son is gone and none of this is going to bring him back. All
you need now is acceptance." Keith got angry with his friend and asked, "What part of Alan's death don't you think I accept? Believe me, I hate to be in so much pain." Acceptance is not about liking a situation. It is about acknowledging all that has been lost and learning to live with that loss. It would be too soon for Keith to be able to accept the situation. He can acknowledge the reality of the loss, but it would be unrealistic to think he should have found some peace with it by then. The gang member who killed Alan was sentenced to life in prison, and Keith and Donna went back to their own lives. But Keith actually had a new loss to deal with, an emptiness, which made the absence of his son's loss even louder. It is important for people to understand that gradually, in your own time, you can begin to find some peace with what has happened. In situations such as murder, it is vital to understand we have a legal system, not necessarily a justice system. Acceptance is a process that we experience, not a final stage with an end point. No one else could know how much acceptance Keith was capable of or how time would affect his process. After five years, Keith felt he had found as much acceptance as was possible. Then he was notified that the shooter was up for his parole ( 假释 ) hearing. Keith was once again filled with anger. The proceedings were brief and parole was denied. Keith was struck by how quickly it happened and by the tears of the shooter's father. For the first time, Keith realized that there were victims on both ends of the gun. Keith walked over and shook his hand. At that moment, something happened: Keith’s anger was replaced by a curiosity. He wanted to know what this other father's life was like and what led him to the same place. Over the next few years, the two men worked together helping gang members stop the violence and find their place in the world. Keith's acceptance was a journey deeper than ever expected. And it happened over many years, not many months or days. Not everyone will or can fully embrace those who have hurt us, as Keith did, but there is always a struggle that leads us to our own personal and unique acceptance. 61. Alan’s parents were very angry at their son’s death because _______. A. he was innocently killed B. he was a member of a gang C. their friends brought the truth back to them D. the murders were soon released 62. Which of the following gives the true meaning of ―acceptance‖ according to this passage? A. Acknowledging the reality. B. Seeking justice for what has been lost. C. Embracing the pain that has made you hurt. D. Finding some peace with what has happened. 63. What personality can we infer from the passage about Keith? A. Tolerant. B. Timid. C. Irresponsible. D. Just. 64. The journey of acceptance is _______. A. necessary but unrealistic B. uniquely characterized C. full of curiosity and violence D. not long but unexpected D Unlike other men of his time, Irish writer Oscar Wilde was showy, outspoken and
unconventional. At the height of his fame, he was betrayed by his lover Lord Alfred Douglas and had to serve two years hard labor for being himself. He died three years after he came out of prison. The work Wilde is remembered for was written over a period of less than 10 years. The Happy Prince and Other Tales was published in 1888. That volume marks the beginning of Wilde’s true creativity. However, academic criticism of Wilde’s work has too often dismissed his fairy stories as lesser works, a minor bit of sentimentalism(多愁善感). Today, since JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, children’s literature has been repositioned as central, not secondary, shifting what children read, what we write about what children read, and what we read as adults. At last we seem to understand that imagination is ageless. Wilde’s children’s stories are splendid. In addition, it seems to me that they should be revisited as a defining part of his creative process. ―The Happy Prince‖ starts a new note in Wilde’s writing: loss. Fairytales always involve reversals of fortune. This works in both directions: beggars become kings, palaces collapse into shelters, the spoilt son swallows bitterness. Wilde’s own reversal of fortune from fame and money to poverty and imprisonment shares the same rapid drama. Fairytales are also and always about transformation of various kinds – frogs into princes, coal into gold – and if they are not overly moralistic, there is usually a happy ending. Wilde’s fairytale transformations turn on loss. ―The Happy Prince‖ is the story of a gilded(鎏金的) and jeweled statue on a column high above the town. One day, a Swallow rests at the feet of the Happy Prince, who tells him of all the suffering he can see. He asks the Swallow to take the ruby(红宝石) from his sword and give it to a poor family. The Swallow does so. The Prince begs him to stay and to strip him bit by bit of all his gold and jewels to distribute to others. The weather is getting colder and the Swallow knows he should fly to the sun. But as he takes the Prince’s jeweled eyes, he realizes that he must stay, for now the Prince is blind. Winter comes. The Swallow dies at the feet of the Happy Prince, no longer sparkling with jewels and gold. The Mayor has the statue pulled down. As the workmen melt down the Prince they find they cannot melt his heart. They throw it on the rubbish pile next to the body of a swallow. I don’t think anything could be closer in description than this to the criticism of Wilde and his talent by a society fascinated with appearances and indifferent to imagination. Wilde believed in the soul. The soul is often described as a bird – and if Wilde is the Happy Prince, then the Swallow is his soul, that returns to him and will not leave him. _______ gift and sacrifice is another theme of Wilde’s fairy stories. In ―The Nightingale and the Rose‖, a Nightingale colors a white rose red with her own heart’s blood so that a poor student will have the most beautiful flower in the world to give to his beloved. His beloved rejects him and his rose, and the rose is thrown in the gutter(排水沟), where it is broken by a cart-wheel. As Wilde says in his letter to Douglas: ―Having got hold of my life you didn’t know what to do with it… and so you broke it.‖ Reason and logic are tools for understanding the world. We need a means of understanding ourselves, too. That is what imagination allows. When a child reads of a Nightingale who bleeds her song into a rose for love’s sake, or of a statue who feels the suffering of the world more keenly than the Mathematics Master who scoffs (嘲笑) at his pupils for dreaming about Angels, the child knows at once both the mystery and truth of such stories. We have all at some point in our lives
been the overlooked idiot who finds a way to kill the dragon, win the treasure, marry the princess. 65. What has caused people to reevaluate Wilde’s fairytales? A. Wilde’s fairytales are well written. B. The Happy Prince and Other Tale marks the beginning of his true creativity. C. Children’s stories are regarded as important as other literary works. D. Unlike other fairytales, Wilde’s stories have sad ends. 66. Which is closest in meaning of the underlined word ―note‖(paragraph 4)? A. Message. B. Theme. C. Tone. D. Attention. 67. Wilde’s focus on loss because of _______. A. Douglas’ betrayal B. avoidance of being moralistic C. the rise and fall of his life D. his belief in the soul 68. The missing words in paragraph 8 should be ―_______‖. A. Indifference to B. Applause for C. Reflection on D. Condemnation of 69. What does the author think is the most valuable feature of Wilde’s fairytales? A. Sentimentalism. B. Imagination. C. Loss. D. Sacrifice. 70. What does the author mean in the last paragraph? A. It is necessary for children to read some fairytales. B. Fairytales should be read differently from serious works. C. Everybody goes through a period of fantasy in his life. D. Fairytales constitute an important part of one’s growth.
II 卷 （非选择题，共 35 分）
第四部分：任务型阅读(共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分) 请注意阅读下列短文， 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。 每 个空格只填 1 个单词。 For years, you’ve dreamed about hopping on a plane and disappearing into the horizon. You’ve bought your ticket. You’ve packed your bags. And your parents have finally built up the courage to let you go. Congratulations! When you travel alone, the only person you need to think about is you. Taste the opportunity of complete freedom, and make your own route. There’s nothing wrong with caring only about yourself and seeking out the opportunities you want to experience, as long as you respect others and their freedom to choose. When you travel with family or friends, you often play a certain role. It can be the irresponsible little brother, the spoiled sister, or the shy friend. Now all that can change. Who do you want to be? Step outside your comfort zone and try on a different role. Don’t hide behind a mask or give into social expectations. When you fail to plan, you have to suffer the consequences. You need to imagine different situations, and try to think of possible solutions to them. Of course, a perfect plan doesn’t guarantee a smooth trip. Things happen on the road. That’s life. Experiences teach you the delicate art of forward thinking. You prove to yourself that you can take on new challenges and deal with problems as they arise. Yes, it’s difficult and you will have to live with your mistakes. But better make mistakes
than not to have lived at all. You learn to be kind and forgiving to yourself. After all, you’ve got to like your own company. You learn to nurture and protect your confidence, because you know it’s one of your most valuable assets. Fear of heights. Fear of spiders. Fear of being alone and unloved. We’ve brought some heavy luggage on board. I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news: You’re not alone with your fears. Others have them, too. It’s what makes us vulnerable and human. Find comfort in this. The bad news: There’s not a fast cure to overcome your fear. There’s no pill to swallow. There’s no app to download. The reward is worth the struggle. Your fears are stubborn and they will return. You must fight back every single time. Traveling invites you to experience the unknown. To make the most of what the world has to offer, you better have an open mind. This is your key. Without it, you won’t go far. The world is full of imagined barriers. You break them down by evaluating your own prejudice. You’re quick to judge, but fortunately travel brings awareness to your ignorance. When the luggage limit is low and your bag is full, you know it’s time to say goodbye to a few things. This can be difficult at first, but after a while it becomes a welcoming routine. Besides, you can buy it again, if you have to. In the end, relationships and memories matter most. You don’t need souvenirs to live a rich life. Sure, less is more when you travel alone, but some things are hard to live without. Say your passport and money for example. These are your personal belongings and you need them. Observe your surroundings and be careful in large crowds and tourist areas. You will build new relationships on your journey, even if you’re shy. It doesn’t take much. It can be a friendly smile, a helpful hand, or a shared fear. Indeed, nothing brings people closer than fear. It’s tempting to check your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts when you’re traveling. You don’t want to miss what’s right in front of you! Take the chance to get to know someone. Things You will Learn About Traveling Alone Be (71) ____________ and play a different role Plan ahead Develop (74) ____________ and face fears Learn to be (77) ____________ Travel with (78) ____________ Make new friends ? ? Think only about yourself so long as you show respect for others. Forget what others (72) ____________ from you. Take this chance to get to know yourself and show the world your true colors.
The more (73) ____________ you are, the more you will be able to enjoy your trip. ? ? When you travel alone, remember others (75) ____________ your fears, in which you may find comfort. When you are alone, there’s no (76) ____________ out but to overcome your fears.
When you travel alone, you test your assumptions and challenge your beliefs. Remember that the best way to change your mind is to open it. ? ? Less stuff means less trouble. Be alert and keep your belongings (79) ____________ at all times.
Resist the (80) ____________ to check your accounts at all costs. Your new friends can teach you things about life that you can’t get from your phone.
第五部分：书面表达(满分 25 分) 阅读下面短文，然后按要求写一篇 150 词左右的英语短文。 Big or small, rejection affects us all. Harry Potter was rejected. So was The Twilight Saga. If authors J. K. Rowling and Stephenie Meyer hadn’t kept trying with publisher after publisher, we’d all have missed out on some great adventures. Rejection doesn’t have to be about the big thing like not getting into your top college, not making the team, or not getting asked to the prom (舞会). Everyday situations can lead to the feeling of rejection, too, like if your joke doesn’t get a laugh, if no one remembers to save you a seat at the lunch table, or if the person you really like talks to everyone but you. Feeling rejected is the opposite of feeling accepted. But being rejected (and we will all be at times) doesn’t mean someone isn’t liked, valued, or important. It just means that one time, in one situation, with one person, things didn’t work out. Rejection hurts. But it’s impossible to avoid it altogether. In fact, you don’t want to— people who become too afraid of rejection might hold back from going after something they want. Sure, they avoid rejection, but they’re also 100% guaranteed to miss out on what they want but won’t try for. 【写作内容】 1. 以约 30 个词概括上文的主要内容。 2. 以约 120 个词就―How to deal with rejection‖这一话题发表你的看法，内容包括： (1) 讲述一次你被拒绝的经历； (2) 你当时的感受； (3) 你认为应该如何正确面对拒绝。 【写作要求】 作文中可以使用亲身经历或虚构的故事， 也可以参照阅读材料的内容， 但不得直接引用原文 中的句子。 【评分标准】 概括准确，语言规范，内容合适，语篇连贯。

Although rejection makes us feel hurt, we can never avoid it, or we’ll certainly miss out on things we want. Three years ago, I competed with my classmates for an important role in an English show to be held in my school. I was so eager to participate in it that I practiced hard in my spare time. However, I was turned down in the last round. I felt really disappointed and deeply hurt because my friends made it but I failed. Personally, if we can deal with rejection well, it will have a minimal effect on us. First, we should have a positive attitude toward rejection; that is to say, we ought to acknowledge it and keep reminding ourselves that rejection is always a possibility. Second, we can tell our family or friends what happened and how we feel about it or even cry if we want to — it’s a natural way to release our emotions. Last but not least, we should consider rejection as an opportunity for self-improvement and try our best to get accepted next time. 听力原文： Text 1 W：Do you want some iced coffee? M：No way!

M：Let’s see…oh, it’s 7:30! I’m late for my dinner appointment. Thanks for asking me what time it was. I’ve gotta run! Text 6 W：Sir, I’m sorry to bother you, but can I ask you a question? M：Uh…sure. No problem. W：Can you tell me where you bought that jacket you’re wearing? M：It was a gift, but I think my sister got it at Barney’s.(6) W：It’s really elegant. And I love the color. M：Thanks! Yeah, it’s probably my favorite jacket. W： I think my brother-in-law would love a jacket like that. You don’t happen to know how much it cost, do you? M：No, I’m sorry, I don’t. But I’d be surprised if it was less than $400. Barney’s tends to be pretty expensive. (7) W：Yeah. But it’s worth it for the high-quality clothes there. Text 7 M：This is a great party, Vanessa! (8) W：Well, thanks of coming, Thomas! It’s great to see you. So, do you see anything you like?(8) M：I think your paintings are really interesting. (8) But I thought you mostly worked with colored glass. W：I do. And as you can see, I have a lot of pieces of glass on display. But I’ve been getting back into painting. It was my first love; you know…that and sculpture. M：Why don’t you have any sculptures for sale? W：Oh, maybe I’ll have some for my next show! M：So…I have one thing to ask you, but it’s a little embarrassing. W：What is it? M：Well, there are a couple of paintings I like, one for my boss and one for my wife. But I’m not sure I can afford them both. W：Since you’re a friend, I’ll give you 50% off for the two. That way, you can buy both pieces.(9) Text 8 M：What are you doing, Carla? W：Oh, just having a little snack－grapes, cheese, and biscuits. M：Those grapes look good. I hope you’re not giving them to my dog, though…(10) W：Uh, why not? M：Because they are really bad for dogs. Along with chocolate, they are the most dangerous thing you could give to a dog. Buster could die if he ate too many.(10) W：Oh-oh… M：Did you give him some? W：Yeah…he really seemed to like them. M：He’s a dog! He likes everything! I can’t believe this! How many did you give him? W：I don’t know…a few, maybe. M：What does that mean? More than four? W：Probably more like nine or ten.(11)
M：Oh, no! Get your keys and let’s go. W：Where are we going? M：To the animal doctor! Buster needs to get his stomach pumped. It’s the only way to get rid of the grapes. He might need some medication, too. W：Oh, no! I’m so sorry, Randall! M：Just get in the car and drive fast, OK? And bring your wallet…this is going to come out of you pocket!(12) Text 9 W：Mickey, I just saw the most amazing deal online! We can go to Mexico for a weekend for $700! M：Wow, that is a good deal. But is that per person or for both of us? W：Total! We can get half off the plane tickets, which are normally $500 each.(13)And there’s a special deal on a hotel right on the beach for $100 per night. M：Great! When can we go? W：Well, that’s the thing. We can’t just go anytime. M：What do you mean? W： These special deals have some restrictions. For example, you can’t fly on a Friday or a Sunday with the discount fares. And the hotel is not available on Fridays.(14) But we can just fly down to Mexico on Saturday morning, stay two nights, and then come back on Monday afternoon. (15) M：What am I supposed to do about work? W：Well, you’d have to get the day off… M：That’s impossible. I already took my month of vacation so we could go to China. My boss will definitely say no. W：Well, you could lie to him and tell him you’re sick… M：Uh, not a chance…I’m trying to get a promotion, and if my boss found out that I lied to him, he’d fire me for sure. It sounds wonderful, honey. But I think we should just go for a regular weekend some other time.(16) Text 10 I was born before my sister Stacy－two minutes and fifty-eight seconds before her, to be exact! I’ve always been really proud to be the older one, and I remind Stacy about it every chance I get. We are twins, but we don’t look the same. There are some twins who look alike and others who don’t. And our personalities couldn’t be more different. I’m outgoing and loud,(17)and I play sports whenever I can. My sister is quiet and shy, and she prefers to read books. Personally, I feel lucky that our parents were down to earth, and didn’t try to do silly things like dress us up in the same clothes when we were little. We grew up in the Midwest－our parents were both professors at the University of Chicago.(18)As kids, my sister and I developed our own language that only we could understand. It made our parents so angry, and that only made us use it more!(19) I don’t remember very much of if now, but there are one or two sentences that we can still use to talk about our parents! I can still remember that day my sister and I left for colleges on opposite sides of the country－her to Harvard and me to Stanford. Both places seemed really far away. I felt like our lives would change forever, but they didn’t. We’re now in our mid-thirties, and we’re never been closer!(20)
