(1)（教育类） I decided to go back to school in the fall of 2008 after not being happy with my current job and financial status. I obtained my Associates Degree in May 2002 in Commercial Arts. After graduation, I had trouble obtaining a job in that field. For years, I was going from one job to another feeling unfilled, and I was not satisfied with the instability.
I decided to go back to school for either International Business or Psychology. I weighed the pros and cons of both professions and Psychology won. I like helping my friends and family, when they go through hard situations in their life by giving them sound advice and being honest with them. Also, I was interested in “the mind”. I was searching for online schools because my work schedule at my current job would not allow me to attend a regular class. I was nervous about starting online classes because I heard mixed stories from other friends who were taking online classes. I decided to do it anyway to experience something different. I wanted to find an online school that was affordable and reputable. Through my search, I discovered Walden University, which is specially for working adults who want to obtain a bachelor’s degree or higher. The process of getting accepted was easy, which included writing an essay on why I wanted to attend their school, transferring my previous credits, etc. I am currently enrolled in the Bachelors program for psychology, and I am paying for college via financial-aid loans and grants. This experience has been interesting yet trying as sometimes it was difficult to balance work, school and home life. I learned a lot about psychology and myself. For example, I like writing about current events, relationships and traveling. I thought my English composition was ordinary, but after taking a few classes at Walden University, I improved my English composition and it made me feel confident enough to start writing professionally so I became a freelance (自由撰稿) writer. Currently, I am only three classes away from obtaining my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology! It was one of the best decisions I made in my life. 1. What did the author study originally when he was in college? A. Psychology. C. International Business. 2. A. He decided to study International Business at first. B. He wanted to study two majors. C. He liked Psychology better. D. He chose his major with the help of his friends. 3. Why was the author nervous about starting online classes? A. Because he heard some negative remarks about it. B. Because he was worried that he didn’t have enough time to study. C. Because he feared he would fail the entrance exam. D. Because he was afraid that he didn’t have enough money. 4. Which of the following best describes the author’s learning experience? A. Dull and challenging. C. Interesting and challenging. (2)(科普类) Recently, a study showed that changes found in astronauts’ eye tissue might cause vision B. Interesting and easy. D. Dull and easy. B. Commercial Arts. D. English Composition.
What do we know about the author from Paragraph 2?
problems, and possibly even blindness. As well as threatening the health of astronauts, this could influence long-distance missions into space. Larry Kramer of Texas Medical School in Houston and his colleagues carried out MRI scans on 27 NASA astronauts after they had spent an average of 108 days in space. About half of them had some problems in their optic nerve (视神经) or eyeball. The changes match those seen in people with idiopathic intracranial hypertension, a rare condition in which the pressure of blood is abnormally high in the brain. People with the condition experience headaches, nausea (反胃) and vision problems including blindness. In space, the changes are probably caused by living in free fall. “It is not because of the sunlight in space or the spacecraft’s function,” says Kramer. “One likely reason is that blood which normally pools in the legs is shifted toward the skull (头颅骨), raising pressure.” The findings are similar to the results of a survey of 300 astronauts carried out in 2011. The damage in vision was reported by 29 percent of astronauts on short-term missions, and 60 percent on long-term missions. “If astronauts are exhibiting these changes after only 100 days in space, what will happen on a three-year flight to Mars?” asks Jason Kring, who studies human performance in extreme conditions at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida. “Deteriorating vision could seriously damage astronauts’ ability to carry out routine mission tasks, including monitoring displays and navigating the rocky landscape of Mars,” says Kring. “This possibility, combined with what we already know about how micro-gravity affects muscles and bones, paints a dark future for human space flight unless we start to develop effective measures.” Kramer says that NASA has the matter in hand. In the wake of the study, all astronauts now have regular brain scans. This includes those yet to travel into space, providing a baseline (基线) from which any changes would be obvious. He also believes it might be possible to identify astronauts’ risk of eyesight damage from medical data before sending them into space. 1. The author mentions idiopathic intracranial hypertension in Paragraph 3 in order to . A. show that the condition is common for astronauts B. explain the symptoms of astronauts’ vision problems properly C. stress the importance of astronauts’ vision problems D. compare the difference between patients and astronauts 2. The underlined word “Deteriorating” in Paragraph 7 can be replaced by “ A. Concentrated C. Worsening 3. What can be inferred from the passage? A. Staying for a long time in space will lead to blindness. B. Scientists’ research in space will be banned soon. B. Strengthening D. Accurate ”.
C. Space flight makes astronauts’ bones function better. D. NASA has started to care for astronauts’ eyesight. 4. What is the main idea of the passage? A. Space flight may be bad for astronauts’ eyes. B. Scientists are doing research on astronauts’ eyes. C. Some scientific problems exist in astronauts’ eyes. D. Measures should be taken to protect astronauts’ eyes. （3）科普类 Since the development of the Internet, men and women have frequented the information superhighway for the purposes of research and social networking. Recently, developments in fourth-generation networks and associated communication devices such as smart phones and smart tablets such as the BlackBerry PlayBook have allowed social networking technology to take a giant leap forward. In this fast-paced world it is often difficult to stay in contact with friends, family, and coworkers, due to the fact that work and education often cause people to move to a number of different locations after spending only a short time in each place. Many people have accepted the fact that family members may only see each other a few times a year. Smart phones are equipped with their own wireless fidelity (无线保真) connections, which allow them to connect to Internet-based social networking sites. The BlackBerry PlayBook allows users to make hands-free telephone calls while on the go, and it has a host of other interesting functions. At the same time, PlayBook users can still surf the same old websites, and check e-mail through the Internet connection. However, instant messaging and e-mail are quickly becoming outdated because of the PlayBook’s video chat capabilities.

The city is in my blood. But I live in the country, and have been forced to deal with things that are difficult. One thing I’ve always had trouble with is birds. How could anyone enjoy staring out of the window for hours at these creatures? My mother had always been one of those ridiculous birdwatcher types. She tried to raise her children to have respect for wildlife, but with little effect on me. One evening, a bird had been sitting on the same perch (栖息处), as if frozen, for ten minutes. My mother got a ladder and took the bird from his perch. She inspected him. It seemed that his tongue was hurt, and that he was unable to drink from the feeder. My mother handed him to me while she went inside for an eyedropper (点眼药器). Never in my life had I felt as frightened as when I was holding that tiny life in my hands. I placed the eyedropper inside the long beak. At first, the bird only trembled, but finally he managed to swallow. After a few minutes, he glided (滑翔) to a tree nearby and returned again. He flew to the tree and then back to me again and again. It didn’t take me long to realize that he was sending me a message, a sort of “SOS”. I walked toward the tree, where I found the tiny creature trembling in the evening air. I slowly reached into the grass to pick up the bird. “Please, be okay.” He had asked me for help. Now he owed me a favor in return and I was asking him to stay alive. However, what I saw was another dead bird lying besides the bird. It must have been a very sad picture: a child wiping her face with her one free hand, while the other palm was cupped around a tiny, dying creature. Fate was taking its own course. Its pulse was hardly noticeable, and the body was growing colder. .
I realized there were some things I could change and some I must simply accept. In either way, the two worlds sometimes collide (碰撞) and strangers must ask for, and be willing to receive, help from others. Without this, survival is not only impossible, but meaningless. 1. From the first paragraph, we can infer that the author C. was forced to feed birds by her mother . A. often stares at birds through the window B. isn’t accustomed to living in the country D. finds respect for wildlife ridiculous 2. What was the matter with the bird according to the second paragraph? A. He was almost frozen to death. B. He had fallen from the perch and gotten injured. C. He couldn’t use his tongue. A.

To look for food to feed the dying bird. D. To ask for help for the dying bird. 3. Why did the bird fly to the author again and again?

People should help others even strangers. C. People cannot accept what they cannot change. D. The human world is different from the animal world. （5）科普说明类 For many years, scientists have wondered how Chrysopelea paradisi, known as the “flying” snakes, can stay afloat (漂浮的) as they leap from one tree to another, sometimes covering a distance of as long as 79 feet. Now a new study has explained that it may be all to do with the way they move. The report was published by Virginia Tech scientist, Jake Soeha who has been studying the flying snakes for a number of years. He began his research by first focusing on its launch technique. He discovered that the snakes first make themselves completely flat and then move side to side; they glide (滑动) rapidly at a speed of between 26-33 feet per second, before leaping off. Once they take off, their bodies actually tilt (倾斜) at about a 25-degree angle relative to the airflow created by their flight. When they first leap, the snakes start to drop altitude to pick up speed. With the front of their bodies held stiff, they start a strange air-gliding dance, by moving from side to side. This turns their entire body into one big wing, allowing them to glide across long distances. The findings are not only exciting because they solve the puzzle of how the snakes are able to fly, but also because the same principles could be used to build small flying instruments. 5. What did the author learn from her experience?
The flying snakes that are native to South and South East Asia spend most of their lives in trees in the lowland tropical forests. They grow between 2-3 feet long and are about as wide as a human finger. As would be expected, the smaller and lighter ones are more able to “glide” for longer distances than the bigger and heavier ones. They are not the only wingless animals that can fly -- there are flying frogs that use similar gliding techniques to make their way across forests. 1. The new study shows that these snakes can fly because of A. the places they live C. the life habits they have 2. passage? a. The snakes first make themselves completely flat b. They glide rapidly at a speed of between 26-33 feet per second. c. Then they move side to side. d. After taking off, their bodies actually tilt at a certain angle. e. They start to drop altitude to pick up speed at their first leap. f. They turn their entire body into one big wing. A. a-f-d-e-c-b 3. B. a-c-b-e-d-f C. a-c-b-f-e-d D. a-f-d-b-c-e Which of the following is TRUE about the findings of the study? A. It made the scientists excited and puzzled. B. It popularised flying snakes. C.

（7）时文报道类 喝瓶装茶是否还有益健康呢？科学家最近发现，瓶装茶中所含的茶多酚非常低，加上它 们的含糖量很高，因此瓶装茶远没有冲泡的茶水健康。
A study revealed that bottled tea contained very low levels of polyphenols (多酚类) compared to brewed (冲泡的) tea. In fact, the researchers found that in order to get the same benefits found in a single cup of brewed tea, in some cases the consumer would have to drink 20 bottles of bottled tea. Shiming Li, Ph.D. explained that consumers understood the health benefits from drinking tea. However, there is a huge gap between comprehending it and the actual amount of healthy nutrients they get from bottled tea. Bottled tea is not only poor in levels of health-improving ingredients for which tea is famous, but it often contains high quantities of sugar and other substances, many of which are what consumers may be trying to avoid. Li and his team measured the polyphenol levels in six brands of tea bought from supermarkets. Half of them contained “almost no antioxidants” while the rest had small quantities of polyphenols, which would most likely carry few health benefits, especially when the high sugar content was taken into consideration. The six teas contained: 81, 43, 40, 4 and 3 milligrams of polyphenols per 16-ounce bottle, compared to 50 to 150 milligrams found in 1 average cup of home-brewed black or green tea. Although bottled-tea makers do list polyphenol content on their labels, the amounts may be incorrect as there are no industry or government standards for measuring or listing the polyphenolic content. A regular tea bag may contain up to 175 milligrams of polyphenols. However, the polyphenol content drops when the bag is immersed into hot water. As manufacturers of bottled tea change their processes, polyphenol levels may also vary. Li said, “Polyphenols are bitter, but to target as many consumers as they can, manufacturers want to keep the at a minimum. The simplest way is to add less tea, which the tea polyphenol content low, but tastes smoother and Li used high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) study and he hopes this study will encourage similar use of bottled-tea makers to provide consumers with better nutritional information. 1. 2. The underlined word in Paragraph 2 means A. following B. understanding From the passage, we know that bottled tea B. tastes better than brewed tea C. does more harm than good D. should be banned 3. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Bottled tea does not match up to government standards. B. HPLC is widely used in analysing bottled tea. . C. practicing . D. requesting in HPLC bitterness makes sweeter.” his by
A. has a lower polyphenol content level than brewed tea
C. The polyphenol level of bottled tea can be improved. D. The polyphenol level increases if tea is brewed in hot water. 4. From the passage, we can infer that most customers A. do not know the benefit of drinking tea B. misunderstand the health benefits of bottled tea C. are offered detailed nutritional information D. are blinded by bottled tea makers (8)(流行时尚说明文) 现代科技产品和流行时尚给人们带来方便的同时也带来一系列健康问题 Do you have back pain or difficulty with your eyesight? If you do, you are likely to have a problem of posture, which can be solved if you ask a help from a doctor promptly. The conference on posture held in Rome this year has brought out the fact that an Italian out of four have posture problems. Back pain is certainly the typical disease deriving from a wrong posture, which can also cause other problems: sight problems, for example, which affect above all children. You might think that women are most affected by these problems, as they are more used to following the trends of fashion, which imposes the use of heavy bags, flat pumps or high-heeled shoes, but the latest conference of the Italian Society of Orthopedics and Traumatology has brought out the fact that men also have bad behavior. About two millions Italian men suffer from backache. Besides wrong shoes and the habits of keeping the wallet in the back pocket for a long time, hi-tech products can cause some serious problems: laptops, iPads, smartphones…all these electronic products together can weigh up to 5 kilos, while the maximum weigh to carry on shoulders should be 3 kilos. The handiness of modern netbooks can have negative consequences, as you can use them when you are lying down. However, it would be better to use them while seated, keeping your back straight and your shoulders relaxed. If you do not disregard the problem and you intervene in it in time, you can start having a right posture, perhaps doing posture correction exercises and more sport. A global posture re-education , a healthier lifestyle and a series of little devices might solve your back problems. 1.According to the meeting in Rome . A. back pain can be removed easily. B. 25% of the Romans suffer from back pain. C. all of the children have sight problems. D. a quarter of the Italians have a wrong posture. 2.From the second paragraph we can know that the trends of fashion can . A. bring the problem of back pain to women. B. make women more beautiful C. refer to the use of heavy bags and pumps. D. Help men to change their behavior. 3.Which of the following will probably lead to back pain? a. carrying something too heavy b. wearing high-heeled shoes for a long time c. being seated in a straight way .
d. using laptops in a wrong posture. e. sleeping all the day A. a , b , c B. b , c , d C. c , d , e D. a , b , d 4.According to the writer the posture problems happen A. only in Italy B. simply in Rome C. in the whole world D. just in China 5. The author writes this text mainly to tell us . A. wrong posture is the cause of many problems. B. the development of science. C. the happiness of our social life D. the modern lifestyle and devices.
(9)（家庭教育议论文） 父母的爱有时影响孩子的感情和成长 Many Chinese parents think as long as the child is watched by people, there is no danger. But from the start, when the child is born, he needs to communicate with others, especially the communication with parents. Many children in our country are growing up in the environment which lacks a sense of security and love. They want to get back the love lost in childhood but never catch it. On the one hand, Chinese like saving faces; on the other hand, they want to encourage their children to be aspirants(有抱负的人). They often say how hard somebody else is studying, how good their grades are, and what prize they get. This comparison is the worst thing especially when they say it before many people. Each time you compare your children to others, you will only bring them much disappointment and pain. Parents should knock at the door when they go into the room of their children. They should get permission before they move something of their children. Parents should first communicate with their children and consider their decisions. Parents should respect their children, and consider them as adults. This respect should begin from changing diapers. Before changing diapers for the children, parents should tell them. Children who do not be respected also do not know how to respect others. Many parents have high hopes for their children, and force them to the way that they think is right, even if the kids do not fit, or do not like, such as playing the piano or going abroad. Under this kind of pressure, children become unhappy and the quality time becomes a struggling period. When children recall their childhood, all memories are unhappy, which is indeed the failure of some parents. 1. The underlined pronoun “they”(in paragraph 1 )probably refers to “ ” A. The families B. The parents C. The children D. The teachers 2.Which of the following probably makes the child disappointed？ A. Parents mustn’t enter the room if not permitted. B. Children’s decision is more important than parents’. C. Parents should show respect to their children. D. Children usually don’t know how to respect others. 3. In order to build a good parent-child relation, parents should . A. help choose the way for their children B. let their children choose the road of life
C. pay for their children to receive further study D. try their best to meet the needs of their children 4. According to this passage we can know that Chinese children’s childhood was A. unforgettable B. unsuccessful C. pleased D. unhappy

Due to weather conditions and the difficulty of controlling animals, he said, only one-eighth of his planned shots were actually filmed. Regardless of arduous conditions, Lee was able to push an excellent lead performance from Sharma, a newcomer who originally accompanied his brother to the studio before landing the role of Pi himself. “By the end of it, I didn’t feel like I was acting anymore,” Sharma recently told a Hollywood reporter. “I was an instrument, of sorts, and Lee pulled the emotion through me. It just went in and came out.” The film isn’t perfect, though. The New York Times said there’s “a clunky(笨拙) moment of exposition at the end that feels entirely too on-the-nose. ” But we know what to expect from Lee, one of the most successful Chinese directors in Hollywood. One thing is for sure: he never disappoints. 60. The film Life of Pi was hard to make partly because _______. A. Lee was not familiar with 3-D B. it’s difficult to deal with animals C. there were too many shots to be filmed D. computer-generated effects were hard to produce 61. It can be inferred that Sharma ______. A. was not really acting in the film B. was turned into a machine by Lee C. had never expected to get the role of Pi D. went to Ang Lee to ask for the role of Pi 62. The underlined word “arduous” (in Paragraph 5) means _________. A. difficult B. excellent C. stable D. unfamiliar
63. We can learn from the last paragraph that ______. A. the ending of Life of Pi was quite disappointing B. Lee is a Chinese director who often confuses audiences C. Life of Pi tells people that life is full of clunky moments D. the New York Times was a little unsatisfied with the ending

The picture shows us a touching moment when a little girl comes to greet her working mom happily. Realizing her mom must be very tired after a day's work, the little girl helps to remove the bag from her shoulder. In response, the mom kneels down to show how thankful and delighted she feels. All this reminds me of my mother who has been doing whatever she could to let me have the best. But, totally engaged in my own study, I seldom pay attention to what mother needs and feels, and always thinks studying well is the only thing I could do in return. Now I know I can do my bit to help with the everyday washing, bedroom cleaning, or at least prepare breakfast myself, so as to share mother's daily burden. The picture convinces me it is even more important to be a good daughter than a "good" student. 例 2： （龙岩市质检） 目前，社会上出现父母为孩子包办一切的现象。这种现象引发诸多问题；如：孩子缺乏 独立处理问题的能力； 缺乏应对社会竞争的能力； 缺乏社会责任感……你怎样看待这种现象？ 请根据以下要求， 写一篇题为“How Should Parents Help Children to Be Independent?”的短 文。 短文应包括：1．反映这种现象；2．谈谈这种现象造成的后果； 3．发表你的看法或提出你的建议。 注意：1．字数 120 左右。 2．开头部分已给出， 不计入总词数。 How Should Parents Help Children to Be Independent? Children are the apple of parents’ eyes, which is particularly true in single-child
families． However, Some parents go so far as to arrange everything for their children, from their daily life, their education, to their future. Such a phenomenon may bring about a lot of problems. Firstly, children may become too dependent on their parents and unable to deal with problems on their own. Secondly, they lack sense of social responsibility. What’s more, whenever facing the fierce social competitions, they feel at a loss and, as a result, can’t find a way out. As far as I am concerned, on one hand, parents should give their children enough freedom to make their own decisions and respect their opinions. On the other hand, parents should encourge their children to find their own ways to solve problems in life. 例 3：（2011 湖北卷）请根据以下提示，结合你校园生活中的一个事例，就与人合作这一话 题，用英语写一篇短文。 Working in groups at school is an opportunity to learn about team work． Teamwork shows us how other people’s roles fit the purpose of the group, and it teaches to be patient and how to respond to different people． 注意：①无须写标题，不得照抄英语提示语； ②除诗歌外，文体不限； ③内容必须结合校园生活中的一个事例； ④文中不得透漏个人姓名和学校名称； ⑤词数为 120 左右。 Years of school life has taught me a lot of things, of which teamwork is the most important for me.

At first, I did most of the duties myself while other students cared little about class activities. As a result, I was tired out and depressed. Then I turned to my teacher and he advised me to cooperate with others. Thus I began to recognize the strengths of my classmates and have everyone do their part in class. It is working in teams instead of on my own that has freed me of trouble and made my work more efficient.

During the basketball game yesterday afternoon, Su Hua and Li Jiang bumped into each other, trying to catch the ball. Then they started shouting and yelling, and it turned into a horrible quarrel. To be honest, it was Su’s fault but Li was also to blame—they were not calm enough and both said some really mean things. They cared too much about winning and losing. As a matter of fact, blocking, pushing and bumping are just part of a tough game. To avoid such conflicts, we should be kind to one another, which is essential to enjoying a harmonious life. It is also a virtue to forgive and forget, especially in such a competitive and stressful society. Instead of blaming each other, we should communicate more and put ourselves in others’place. Don’t be self-centered and try to be considerate. We must learn to handle conflicts calmly and wisely.

With a loving character, LiHua is such a kind and helpful person as we cannot praise too much. Whenever there is a trouble, his timely encouraging words always push us forward. Yet what has impressed us most is his unconditional love to those unprivileged children. Knowing that some children had little access to reading materials, he started to donate books as early as junior high. Two years ago, he volunteered to teach English and painting in a small village during the summer vacation, which has inspired some other students to join in and thus helped open up a new world to those children as well. Proud enough, we strongly support Li Hua as the Touching Figure of 2011, for his selfless love that touches our heart, his perseverance that inspires us to keep going forward and his action that suggests even the smallest efforts can make a big difference to those in need. Thank you for listening. 例 7 (厦门市质检) 假定你是某中学生英语报的小记者，请根据漫画及内容要求写一篇英语 短文投稿。 内容要求：1. 描述漫画内容；2．发表个人感想。
注意： 1．短文标题已给出，不计入总词数； 2．考生可适当发挥，使文章内容充实、连贯； 3．词数120左右； 4．文中不能出现考生的具体信息。 Show More Concern For Others Most conflicts start because of inconsiderate behavior. As is shown in the picture, the lady downstairs gets mad at the loud noise coming from upstairs. Meanwhile, the happy but selfish neighbors enjoy their time, skipping rope, dancing or singing. This picture presents us with a common phenomenon in our daily life. It is rare that any of us in society lives by ourselves—we are a member of a group, which requires us to learn to be considerate and live in harmony with others. Besides, I strongly recommend that we deal with conflicts in a positive way. If I were the lady, I would choose to have a face-to-face talk with them and never take sleeping pills. I do believe that, if everyone had more concern for others, the world would be a pleasant place to live.
二、话题：个人情况、日常活动、兴趣与爱好、文娱与体育 、文学与艺术 例 1： 2004 北京卷 某学校对中学生课余活动进行了调查， 结果如下。 请根据图表 1 提供的信息描述学生每 天的课余活动，并针对图表 2 中任何一个数据中反映的情况写出你的一个看法。
生词：图表 chart Chart 1 shows the daily average amount of time the students of the school spend on different after-class activities. The students put the most time － 93 minutes－ into their homework, and next in line is watching TV, which takes up 46 minutes. They put in about the same amount of time listening to music and working on the computer, 34 minutes and 30 minutes each. While 25 minutes is spent on sports, only 12 minutes goes into housework. As is shown on Chart 2, only 10% of the time is taken up with sports activities. I think the school should encourage the students to do more exercise after class. This way, they may be healthier and more energetic. 例 2： (06· 湖北) 受某英文报的委托，你最近对高中生的英语阅读兴趣做了一次调查。请根据以下信息， 用英语为该报写一篇 100 左右的短文。短文的标题及首句已为你写好。 调查内容：在新闻、故事、科普、学习方法四种英文文章中，学生最喜欢哪一种。 调查范围：湖北省的 10 所中学 调查对象：高中生 调查人数：1000 调查方式：访谈 错误!调查结果： （见下图）
【参考范文】 Reading Interests of Senior Middle School Students Recently a survey has been done to find out the reading interests of senior middle school students. In this survey, one thousand senior middle school students from ten schools in Hubei Province were interviewed. They were asked which they liked reading most among the four categories of English articles: news, stories, popular science articles and articles about learning methods. The survey shows that more than half of the students like to read news most. Twenty-six percent of the students say that English stories are their favorite. Only seven percent of the students are most interested in reading articles about learning methods. However, the number of students who enjoy reading popular science articles doubles that of those who prefer reading articles about learning methods. 例3： 【江苏省泰州市田家炳实验中学2012届高三下学期2月调研英语】书面表达 (满分 25分) 每年的 4 月 23 日是“世界读书日”。尽管在科技日益发达的今天，人们获取知识与信息 的途径有很多，我们还是鼓励更多的人阅读。 请以 Reading—A Bright Way to A Better life 为 题写一篇英语短文，要点必须包括下表中的信息。 阅读的好处 1、操作灵活，便于获取信息；扩大 视野…… 2、提升自身素养，利于人际交流…… 3、更好生存的手段…… 阅读需要 选择内容 良好习惯 长期坚持 你 1、喜欢阅读的内容（概括）…… 2、坚持阅读的体会……

In the age of high technology, reading deserves to be paid attention to. To begin with, it is the most flexible way of getting information. Many people think it not only helps them better understand society as well as nature, but also broadens their horizon. Additionally, reading, to some degree, is of great benefit to interpersonal communication apart from self-improvement. It can also enrich our life and bring people pleasure. What’s more, reading is also regarded by many as a means of better survival.
However, not every book is worthy of being read. Some may mislead readers. So keep in mind that choosing a good book is like making a good friend. Besides, reading is supposed to be done in a proper period of time, for example, in our spare time, thus not disturbing our work or study. As long as we insist on reading, we can get improved gradually. Personally, I appreciate reading classical literature in my spare time, which provides me with a thorough understanding of life and society. Through practicing reading between the lines and beyond the lines, I find my comprehension ability stably improved. Perhaps in the near future, I’m not merely a reader but also a writer. 例 4： (江苏省宿迁市 2007—2008 学年度高三年级第三次调研测试) 假设下面是你们学校对学生课外阅读情况所作的调查。请根据下面的图表为某报社写一 篇有关这次调查的报道，并适当发表你自己的看法。 图 学生阅读各类书籍的比例 表 没看过文学名著的原因 原 因 百 分 比（%） 48 20 12 20

【参考范文】 Recently our school has had a survey on reading. It shows that 45 percent of the students spend their time reading textbooks after school. 30 percent of the students choose to read cartoons in their leisure time. However, only 10 percent enjoy reading literature. Why are so many students unwilling to spend some time in reading serious works? According to the survey, 48 percent of the students say they have no enough time because they have too much homework to do. Some complain that literature works are so thick that they have hardly enough patience to finish them. Others who only concentrate on how to get high scores simply admit that reading literature won’t help them at all with their exams. In fact, as far as I’m concerned, books play an important role in our life. Literature works help us learn the customs and cultures in the past and at present, at home and abroad. It provides us with good examples of writing. 例 5： 【2011· 江苏南通第三次模拟】 书面表达 (满分 25 分) 假设最近某校就同学们的习惯养成问题展开了广泛的讨论。请你根据下表所提示的信 息，用英语写一篇题为 A good habit, a successful life 的短文，发表在该校的网站上。 1．及时预习； 2．认真听课； 良好的学习习惯 3．独立作业； ……

Good habits of learning, such as previewing what you will study, listening to teachers attentively in class, completing given assignments by yourself and reviewing what you’ve learned in time, will help you acquire more knowledge and improve your skills. Meanwhile, good habits of living will make you develop soundly, both physically and mentally. Therefore you must attach importance to healthy food, constant exercise, reasonable schedules and eyesight protection. Good habits contribute to our success. Once a good habit is formed, it will give us power to control ourselves. While we are making efforts to form good habits, we should try to kick bad habits. Though bad habits are hard to get rid of, yet we all know where there is a will, there is a way. If we insist on behaving ourselves properly, we are sure to remove them. Do remember good habits will give us a successful life. 三、 话题： 旅游和交通、热点话题、 社会法规 例 1：（山东省平邑县高考补习学校 2010 届高三 1 月阶段性质量检测） 假如你班在“珍爱生命，拒闯红灯”教育活动中，召开了一次主题班会。请你根据下表内 容，用英语写一篇短文。 行人（passer-by）闯红灯的危害 妨碍交通，影响车辆的正常行驶 容易引发事故，危及他人和自身的生命安全 。。（自己设想） 。。 对行人闯红灯的处罚措施 批评教育，让其一是到闯红灯的危害性 当场给与警告并罚款

As we can see, some passers-by don’t obey traffic rules and jaywalk frequently. This blocks traffic, seriously affects drivers and causes accidents to happen, endangering the safety of passers-by and drivers. In a word, jaywalking produces negative effects and does not help develop good social behavior. It is really a pity to see all this in our society. To deal with the situation, the government has taken some measures. When caught jaywalking, the passers-by are criticized so that they will become aware of the dangers of doing so, or they are fined on the spot. Sometimes the traffic police will report jaywalkers at their workplace and expose them to the public. However, it will still take a long time to stop passers-by from jaywalking. We should start from ourselves right now.

More than 200 old trees will be removed to make way for the underground in a city, which has caused wide public concern and a heated argument. Some people argue that with the population increasing, our city needs the underground to develop further. The old trees should be removed and planted in other places. Besides, more young trees will be planted in the city. However, others say that the old trees are imortant to the city, for they provide shade and help clean the air. More importantly, the old trees have exisited for many years and have become a unique part of the city. And no one can be sure the old trees will survive after being removed. Personally, I think our city should develop on condition that valuable ancient things are protected well. 例 3： (江苏省盐城中学 2008 届高三上学期期末模拟考试) 可持续发展已成为全球共识， 如何实行可持续发展是摆在世人面前的重大课题。 请就下面表 格所提供的内容进行陈述并谈谈你的看法。 自然资源日趋减少，环境问题依然严重，人的环保观念淡 薄，贫富差距越来越大。 1． 制定了相关的法律法规 2． 投入大量资金改善环境 3． 对 民众进行教育 4．加强了国际间相互合作。 ……

The present situation is worrying. First, natural resources are becoming less than before. Second, as some people are not aware of the importance of the environmental protection, the problems with it remain extremely serious to some degree. The gap between the rich and the poor has the tendency to become wider and wider. To our great joy, many countries have taken action. On one hand, they have made relevant laws and regulations and put large amounts of money to the environmental protection. One the other hand, popularized education as well as international cooperation is being carried out.

In the picture, we can see a man walking on the road of life, facing many choices and wondering which way to take. In our daily life, we often have similar situations and have to make decisions independently. In order to make a decision that we won’t regret, we should follow these two principles: thinking before acting and never missing any opportunities that arise. On one hand, we should have an objective judgment about ourselves while maintaining a clear idea about the world around us. On the other hand, opportunity is open to everyone and we should make good use of it when it comes. “Opportunities are only for the prepared minds.” In my opinion, as high school students, we should value our time in school and get prepared for the future. When faced with choices, we should remember that using the mind and taking advantage of good opportunities will lead to success.

25% 使网上聊天更 快捷方便 幽默 33% 充满智慧 没有思想性，太简单； 7% 没有被大多数人接受； 过多使用会使人不解， 甚至误 解
One possible version: At present, Internet slang, such as “GG”, “MM”, “Xia Mi”, has become popular among the teenagers. According to a survey conducted by our Students’ Union, students’ opinions on this issue are divided. Most of the students are in favor of Internet slang. About 35% of the students hold the view that Internet slang is vivid and fashionable. Another 33% of them enjoy its humor and intelligence. And a quarter of the students believe it makes chatting on the Internet more convenient. However, there are 7 % of the students thinking Internet slang lacks depth of thought and is too casual. In addition, it is hard for most people to understand and accept this kind of slang. If it is used too much in a passage, it may make readers confused, and even cause misunderstanding. In my opinion, living in the Information Age, if we are not familiar with Internet slang, we are likely to fall behind.
