I. 完形填空(共小 20 题;每小题 1 分, 满分 20 分, 用时 10 分钟) In the fall of 1985, I was a bright-eyed girl heading off to Howard University, aiming for a legal career and dreaming of sitting on a Supreme Court bench.

A year later came our second adopted boy. 7 , the following year ,we adopted son number three , In 2003, I gave birth to another boy. You can 8 how totally occupied I became, raising four boys under the age of eight. Our home was a complete zoo — a joyous zoo. Not surprisingly, I never did 9 it back to college full-time. But I never 10 my dream either. I had only one choice: make it work. That meant taking as 11 as one class each semester. The hardest part was feeling 12 about the time I spent away from the boys. They often wanted me to 13 home with them. There certainly were times I wanted to 14 . But I knew I should set a(n) 15 for them to follow through the rest of their lives. In 2007, I graduated from the University of North Carolina. It took me over 21 years to get my college degree! I am not 16 just single-minded.

II. 阅读理解 (共20 小题; 每小题2 分, 满分40 分; 用时35分钟)

A
While you may be doing everything right, ignoring just one or two steps in the process may keep you from getting a job, especially in this fierce market. Here is a checklist that covers some of the major links in the job-search chain. THE RESUME — Make sure it is up-to-date and tailored to the types of jobs you are seeking for. Have someone else look at your resume. If you cannot afford a career coach, give your resume to friends or family members to scrutinize. Have copies of your resume printed so that you are ready to hand them out at interviews. COVERING LETTERS — Maybe you’ve set up a few basic styles in advance, but that’s not enough. Each covering letter should be designed to suit the job for which you are applying. THE WARDROBE(衣橱) — Check your wardrobe to ensure that you have the appropriate professional dress, including shoes, ready for interview. NETWORKING — Don’t isolate yourself from others for days. Network through e-mail messages, phone calls, appointments and meetings keep you in touch with the outside world and prevent you from becoming depressed. APPLICATION — A glance at huge online job sites isn’t usually the best way to find a job. You are more likely to succeed through the people you know via networking. THE FOLLOW-UP — It is quite common to apply for job and never hear back from the company. Take measures, such as following up with a phone call a week or so after you apply. If you know someone at the company, check whether that person will put in a good word for you. INTERVIEWS — If you’ve got plenty of interviews but no return calls or job offers, take a look at your interviewing skills. This is one area where investing in a career coach may pay off. But if you can’t afford one, try to find a job group or service that conducts free mock (模拟) interviews. SUPPORT SYSTEMS — Finally, recognize that looking for job is rather difficult. Even at the best of times, a job hunt is often about rejection, and that can be hard to endure. Staying in touch with family, friends, professional networks and fellow job seekers can help you to maintain a positive attitude and a sense of perspective. 21. The author ’s purpose of writing this text is to ______. A. suggest graduates should find suitable jobs B. tell people how to improve their interview skills C. teach people how to get ready for an interview D. give people some tips on searching for jobs 22. The underlined word “scrutinize” in Paragraph 2 can be replaced by ______. A. check B. use C. rewrite D. criticize 23. What should you do if you don’t receive any calls after lots of interviews? A. Ask a fellow job seeker to help you. B. Carefully review your interviewing skills. C. Rewrite your resume as soon as possible. D. Go to the managers’ offices to find out why. 24. It is implied in the text that ______. A. people often pay no attention to writing their resume B. the interview is the most difficult step for interviewees C. your social network may help you a lot in your job hunt D. a career coach often offers free mock interviews to interviewees

another reason: to see the wind turbine, which supplies 5% of the store’s electricity. It along with other facilities, such as exterior walls coated with heat-reflective paint, makes this Wal-Mart a green giant. The laws of economics suggest that Wal-Mart, with 5, 200 stores worldwide, influences everything including the price of all kinds of goods. It throws its weight behind environmental responsibility, and the impact could be amazing. “One little change in product packaging could save 1, 500 trees,” says Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott. “If everybody saves 1, 500 trees or 50 barrels of oil, at the end of the day you have made a huge difference.” Scott wants Wal-Mart to do its part too. He has promised to cut the existing greenhouse-gas emissions over the next few years and promised to construct new stores that are more efficient. He wants Wal-Mart’s fleet (车队) of more than 7, 000 trucks to get twice as many miles per gallon by 2015. Factories that show Wal-Mart they’re cutting air pollution will get preferential treatment in the supply chain. Wal-Mart says it’s working with consumer-product manufacturers to reduce their packaging and will reward them if they do so. Some people may doubt it is a bid to attract attention from Wal-Mart’s controversial labor and health-insurance practices. But it’s not just window dressing, because Wal-Mart sees profits in going green. Scott says, “This is a business philosophy, not a social philosophy. We don’t go where we don’t think there’s a great interest in change.” Like Bill Gates, who started his charitable foundation, Scott happens to be promoting Wal-Mart’s image at a time when his company’s reputation is declining. He acknowledges that he launched the plan partly to shield (保护)Wal-Mart from bad press about its contribution to global warming. “By doing what we’re doing today, we avoid the headline risks that are going to come for people who did not do anything,” he says. “At some point businesses will be held responsible for the actions they take.” Meanwhile, should Wal-Mart succeed at shrinking its environmental footprint and lowering prices for green products, both the planet and the company will profit. 28. We can infer from the passage that ______. A. Lee Scott is Wal-Mart’s CEO B. there are 5, 200 stores in the world C. Wal-Mart has a great influence on the world market D. Wal-Mart has more than 7, 000 trucks all over the world 29. What does the underlined sentence “This is a business philosophy, not a social philosophy.” mean in the fourth paragraph? A. Wal-Mart predicts huge profits in its green activity. B. Wal-Mart’s green activity is just window dressing. C. Wal-Mart aims to solve its health-insurance practices. D. Wal-Mart doesn’t have any social responsibility at all. 30. What will Wal-Mart probably do in the future? A. Reduce air pollution in its present stores. B. Give favorable treatment to its consumers. C. Ask the factories to reduce their packaging. D. Demand the fleet of trucks to use more fuel than before. 31. What is the main idea of the last paragraph? A. Provide the background of the green plan. B. Stress the purpose of Wal-Mart’s green plan.

You’ve flown halfway around the world; you’ve sniffed out (发现) this place that nobody in Falongland or Thailand seems to have ever heard of; so what on earth is there to do here? You consider this question as you sink into an old wooden beach chair that holds you above the sand. It was a long journey from Bangkok to Huaplee. By the time you found the bus station and got yourself sorted out (平静), it took almost as long as the flight from Falongland. Huaplee is located just south of Hua Hin, about two hundred kilometres from Bangkok, down the west side of the Gulf of Thailand. Not many tourists find this place, and the ones that do wonder if finding it has been their purpose all along. There’s an apparent laziness that surrounds you here. It’s what this place offers, and it’s free of charge. The small waves that tap the shoreline seem to slow everything down. You settle into your beach chair in preparation for a long rest. You sit there and watch the sea. It’s early afternoon, so the cook comes out and asks what you’d like to eat this evening. Before long he’s rushed off to the market to buy the ingredients for whatever it was that you ordered—every meal fresh and to order. No menu here. There is no poolside noise here but just that wonderfully warm, clear blue sea. There’s no street noise. The only sounds are the murmurs of nature. For now you just count your blessings, listing them in the sand with your toe. You don’t have to worry about being late for work. You don’t have to do anything. The beach to your right stretches off to the horizon, slowly narrowing to nothingness only to re-emerge again on your left, now steadily widening until it covers the chair beneath you. Sand to your left and sand to your right; it’s unbroken, endless. No start, no end, just sand, sun, and peace. Step off it, and you re-enter the world of traffic, stress, work, and hurry. Normally you’re the type who can’t sit still for more than ten minutes, but you’re on Huaplee Lazy Beach now and, in the right frame of mind, it stretches all the way around the world. “How could it take me so long to find it?” you wonder. 32. When the author first went to Huaplee Beach, ______. A. he found it unworthwhile B. he failed to sort himself out C. he became sensitive to smell D. he had difficulty in finding it 33. What is special about the food service at Huaplee Beach? A. No menu. B. Free food. C. Self service. D. Quick delivery. 34. In the author ’s opinion, a tourist can enjoy Huaplee Beach most when he ______. A. sits in a beach chair B. forgets his daily routine C. plans a detailed schedule D. draws pictures in the sand 35. What does the author imply by his question at the end of the passage? A. He shouldn’t have counted his blessings. B. He should have understood the wonder of nature. C. He shouldn’t have spent so much time on the trip. D. He should have come to the place earlier.

Amiya Olden could have been a poster child for a reading crisis that affects nearly 2 million Michigan residents older than 16: They read below a sixth-grade level, which makes it difficult to

find jobs and to improve their lives. Among them, Amiya is one. Amiya Olden remembers well the day she graduated from Denby High school. She handed her diploma to her mother, who read it to her. “Then when someone asked me to read it, I could remember the things she read, and I knew what I had to say,” recalled Amiya Olden. “When we would go out to restaurants with my aunts, and that’s when I really would get upset. I would see words on the menu but I couldn’t read!” But don’t feel sorry for her. She changed her life by reaching a point where she’d read enough. Two summers ago, she took charge of her life when she walked into Pro Literacy Detroit to improve her reading. Nineteen months ago, she was reading at a second-grade level; now at a fifth-grade level. Olden now splits her days between her classes at Pro Literacy and the library, where she checks out books and reads them. She says she hopes her improved reading skills will help her find a good job. And she has advice for others, who have trouble reading. “Don’t give up on it,” she said. “Even though it can be challenging and you might get frustrated sometimes, practice does help. If you really want to be able to go somewhere, go out to a restaurant and you have to read signs and things like that, you want to know what you want to eat and where you want to go. . . If you want to succeed in life and grow, you have to read. More importantly, you have to feel confident that you can.” 36. Amiya’s mother read the diploma to her so that ______. A. she could show off before her daughter B. they both could remember the particular moment C. she could encourage her daughter to improve her reading D. her daughter could remember the content of the diploma 37. Amiya attends Pro Literacy Detroit to ______. A. get another diploma C. find a good job in the training center 38. From the passage we can see in Michigan ______. A. the reading crisis affects only poor people B. most students can’t graduate from high school C. the job market pays too much attention to reading D. many people can’t find good jobs due to poor reading 39. Which of the following is true of Amiya? A. She is 16 years old now. B. A good job has been offered to her. C. She is an adviser for those with reading difficulty. D. Most of her time is divided between her classes and the library. 40. With the study at Pro Literacy, Amiya is now ______. A. puzzled B. discouraged
