Do American children still learn handwriting in school? In the age of the keyboard, some people seem to think handwriting lessons are on the way out. 90% of teachers say they are required to teach handwriting. But studies have yet to answer the question of how well they are teaching it. One study published this year found that about three out of every four teachers say they are not prepared to teach handwriting. Some teachers are teaching handwriting by providing instruction for 10 to 15 minutes a day, and then other teachers who basically teach it for 60 to 70 minutes a day —which really for handwriting is pretty much. Many adults remember learning that way—by copying letters over and over again. Today’s thinking is that short periods of practice are better. Many experts also think handwriting should not be taught by itself. Instead, they say it should be used as a way to get students to express ideas. After all, that is why we write. Handwriting involves two skills. One is legibility, which means forming the letters so they can be read. The other is fluency—writing without having to think about it. Fluency continues to develop up until high school. But not everyone masters these skills. Teachers commonly report that about one fourth of their kids have poor handwriting. Some people might think handwriting is not important any more because of computers and voice recognition programs. But Steve Graham at Vanderbilt says word processing is rarely done in elementary school, especially in the early years. American children traditionally first learn to print, and then to write in cursive, which connects the letters. But guess what we learned from a spokeswoman for the College Board, which administers the SAT college admission test. More than 75 percent of students choose to print their essay on the test rather than write in cursive.
1. Which of the following is WRONG for traditional handwriting in the USA?
A. The students are taught by practicing a long period. B. The letters are repeated many times.
C. Handwriting includes two skills. D. To write in cursive is taught first.
2. The underlined word “legibility” in Paragraph 3 means _____. A. easy to read
C. unexpected D. unreadable
3. The best title for the passage is _____. A. How to improve handwriting in school
B. Right or wrong: the death of handwriting C. Handwriting involves two skills
D. Handwriting lessons are on the way out
4. The author’s attitude towards whether still to learn handwriting in school is _____.
B. objective C. critical
2. A 3. B
1. 细节理解题。根据第二段可知，传统的书法教学重复很多遍并且持续时间长，因此 A、B 两项内容正 确；根据第三段第一句话可知 C 项内容正确；根据最后一段第二句话可知 D 项内容错误。
2. 词义猜测题。根据下文“which means forming the letters so they can be read”可推测画线词的 意思是“清楚，易读”。 3. 主旨大意题。作者对美国书法教学的现状作了叙述，没有自己的主观评论，故选择 B 项。A 项没有涉 及；C 项只是其中一部分内容；D 项只是一部分人的观点。 4. 观点态度题。纵观全文，作者只将美国书法教学的现状和不同人的观点呈现出来，并没有发表自己的 见解，因此作者持客观的态度。

You can also take a tour of the coffee farms that produce the world famous Kona coffee, which is organic and all natural. Kona vacation rentals are popular because many of these look out over the Pacific Ocean, and are close to excellent beaches. Whether you Hawaii vacation includes Hawaii beaches, staying at a resort or booking one of the Kona vacation rentals, this area is one of the best of all islands to stay. Iao Valley Iao Valley beauty has inspired Hawaiians to gather here to honor the agriculture god, Lono, during an annual festival called the Makahiki Festival. For over a hundred years visitors have been coming to the valley to enjoy the scenic beauty of this lush(青葱的) valley.

If tourists create too much traffic, the inhabitants become annoyed and unhappy. They begin to dislike tourists and to treat them impolitely. They forget how much tourism can help the country’s economy. It is important to think about the people of a destination( 旅游目的地) country and how tourism affects them. Tourism should help a country keep the customs and beauty that attract tourists. Tourism should also advance the wealth and happiness of local inhabitants. Too much tourism can be a problem. If tourism grows too quickly, people must leave other jobs to work in the tourism industry. This means that other parts of the country’s economy can suffer. On the other hand, if there is not enough tourism. People can lose jobs. Businesses can also lose money. It casts a great deal of money to build large hotels, airports, first-class roads, and other support facilities(配套设施) needed by tourist attractions. For example, a major international class tourism hotel can cost as much as 50 thousand dollars per room to build. If this room is not used most of the time, the owners of the hotel will lose money. Building a hotel is just a beginning. There must be many other support facilities as well, including roads to get to the hotel, electricity, sewers(下水道)to handle waste, and water. All of these support facilities cost money. If they are not used because there are not enough tourists, jobs and money are lost.

As a high school student, I consider English a very important subject. In order to learn it well, apart from English class, I took an active part in English corner and other afterclass English activities, which benefit me a lot. In the English corner, I meet many friends, who share the same interest with me. Besides, sometimes, some foreigners are glad to join us. By talking with them, my oral English improved a lot. I also find it useful to keep English diaries. I keep on doing it these years and it is helpful to my English. As a saying goes, practice makes perfect. Only by practice will we make more progress. Finally, some good English study websites contribute a lot to my improvement. Through these websites, I can read some classic English passages, poems and stories. What’s more, I can learn some learning skills and methodologies, which play an important part in my study process. All in all, all roads lead to Rome, but I believe hard work pays off.
