II．阅读（共两节，25 题，满分 50 分） 第一节: 阅读理解 （共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中，选出最佳选项，并在答 题卡上将该项涂黑。 A No poem should ever be discussed or "analyzed", until it has been read aloud by someone, teacher or student. Better still, perhaps, is the practice of reading it twice, once at the beginning of the discussion and once at the end, so the sound of the poem is the final thing one hears of it. All discussions of poetry are, in fact, preparations for reading it aloud, and the reading of the poem is, finally, the most telling "interpretation" of it, suggesting tone, rhythm, and meaning all at once. Hearing a poet read the work in his or her own voice, on records or on film, is obviously a special reward. But even those aids to teaching can not replace the student and teacher reading it or, best of all, reciting it. I have come to think, in fact, that time spent reading a poem aloud is much more important than "analyzing" it, if there isn't time for both. I think one of our goals as teachers of English is to have students love poetry. Poetry is "a criticism of life", and "a heightening（提升）of life". It is "an approach to the truth of feeling", and it "can
save your life". It also deserves a place in the teaching of language and literature more central than it presently occupies. I am not saying that every English teacher must teach poetry. Those who don't like it should not be forced to put that dislike on anyone else. But those who do teach poetry must keep in mind a few things about its essential nature, about its sound as well as its sense, and they must make room in the classroom for hearing poetry as well as thinking about it. 26. To have a better understanding of a poem, one should___________. A. discuss it with others C. copy it down in a notebook A . Saving you when your life is at risk C. Expressing one’s true feelings students____. A. to understand life C. to become teachers B. to enjoy poetry D. to become poets B. analyze it by oneself D. practise reading it aloud B. Criticizing life D. Heightening life
27. Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a function of poetry?
28. According to the writer, one of the purposes of teaching English is to get
29. What does the last sentence in the third paragraph imply? A. More stress should be laid on the teaching of poetry. B. The teaching of poetry is more important than any other subject C. One cannot enjoy life fully without an understanding of poetry. D. Poetry is the foundation of all language and literature courses. 30. The phrase “make room” in the last paragraph could be best replaced by_____. A. build a booth C . leave a certain amount of time B Robert Todd Duncan was born in 1903 in the southern city of Danville, Kentucky. His mother was his first music teacher. As a young man, he continued his music study in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1930，he completed more musical education at Columbia University in New York City. Then he moved to Washington. For fifteen years, he taught music at Howard University in Washington. At that time, not many black musicians were known for writing or performing classical music. Teaching at Howard gave Duncan the chance to share his knowledge of classical European music with a mainly black B. provide equipment D. set aside enough space
student population. He taught special ways to present the music. These special ways became known as the Duncan Technique. Besides teaching，Duncan sang in several operas with performers who were all black. But it seemed that he always would be known mainly as a concert artist. However，his life took a different turn in the middle 1930s. At that time, the famous American music writer George Gershwin was looking for someone to play a leading part in his new work Porgy and Bess. The music critic (评论家) of the New York Times newspaper suggested Todd Duncan. Duncan had almost decided not to try for the part as he knew it would not be easy to get it. But he changed his mind. He sang a piece from an Italian opera for Gershwin. He had sung only a few minutes when Gershwin offered him the part. He became famous because of the part in Porgy and Bess. Todd Duncan gained fame as an opera singer and concert artist. But his greatest love in music was teaching. When he stopped teaching at Howard，he continued giving singing lessons in his Washington home until the week before his death. 31．What is this passage mainly about? A．What Robert Todd Duncan loved most. B．How Robert Todd Duncan became famous. C．Robert Todd Duncan and his works of music. D．A brief introduction to Robert Todd Duncan. 32．According to Paragraph 2，while teaching at Howard University， Duncan________. A．discovered special new ways to write music B．opened doors for other black classical singers C．had the chance to know many famous black musicians D．became known for writing and performing classical music 33．What happened to Duncan in the middle 1930s? A．He gave up teaching at Howard University. B．He was introduced by the New York Times in detail. C．He was asked to be in charge of the opera Porgy and Bess. D．He was given a big opportunity to become an opera singer. 34．We can infer that Robert Todd Duncan didn’t at first want to try for the part mainly because________. A．he was too busy to do it
B．he was not interested in it C．he was not confident enough D．he didn’t want to become famous 35．Based on the passage, what did Robert Todd Duncan love most? A．Singing in concerts. B．Writing music. C．Singing opera. D．Teaching music. C Since we are social beings, the quality of our lives depends in large measure on our interpersonal relationships. One strength of the human conditions is our possibility to give and receive support from one another under stressful conditions. Social support consists of exchange of resources among people based on their interpersonal ties. Those of us with strong support systems appear better able to deal with major life changes and daily problems. People with strong social ties live longer and have better health than those without such ties. Studies over types of illnesses, from depression to heart disease, show that the presence of social support helps people defend themselves against illness, and the absence of such support makes poor health more likely. Social support cushions stress in a number of ways. First, friends, relatives and co-workers may let us know that they value us. Our self-respect is strengthened when we feel accepted by others in spite of our faults and difficulties. Second, other people often provide us with informational support. They help us to define and understand our problems and find solutions to them. Third, we typically find social companionship supportive. Taking part in free-time activities with others helps us to meet our social needs while at the same time distracting(转移注意力) us from our worries and troubles. Finally, other people may give us instrumental support — money aid, material resources, and needed services — that reduces stress by helping us resolve and deal with our problems. 36. Interpersonal relationships are important because they can _______. A. make people live much better B. smooth away daily problems C. deal with life changes D. cure types of illnesses
37. The researches show that people's physical and mental health _______. A. lies in the social medical care systems which support them B. has much to do with the amount of support they get from others C. depends on their ability to deal with daily worries and troubles D. is related to their courage for dealing with major life changes 38. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined word “cushions” ? A. takes place of C. lessens the effect of _____. A. instrumental support C. social companionship A. Interpersonal relationships. B. Kinds of social support. C. Ways to deal with stress. D. Effects of stressful conditions. D The house was quiet at 5 a.m. and Tim’s mother was asleep. Only the sound of the big freezer broke the quiet. He’d dreamt of the cave last night. The purring (轻微 颤动声) of the freezer had been the sea. Tim pulled on a sweater and put some apples into his schoolbag. It was too early for breakfast. He’d eat after he’d been through the cave, sitting on the rocks and staring at the sea. He wished he had a proper pack. His schoolbag would have to do. What else? Sandwiches——but his mother might wake up if he started pulling out bread for sandwiches. She’d want to know why he had to leave so early. He settled for some biscuits, and left a note stuck at the table: Gone to Michael’s. Back tonight. Tim. The sky was high and soft and light outside, though the sun still wasn’t up. Even the highway up the hill was quiet as he made his way down the street. The wind from the sea was fresh and sweet. The sandhills still breathed heat from yesterday’s sun, though the top of the sand was cool. He ran down to the beach impatiently, but there was no one, just dry sand dancing in the early wind and seabirds marching up and down watching the waves. The light changed suddenly. The first rays of sunlight stretched across the sea. B. informational support D. the strengthening of self-respect B. makes up D. adds to
39. Helping a sick neighbor with some repair work in spare time is an example of
40. What is the subject discussed in the text?
The sun was pushing its way over the edge of the world. Over the first rocks, along to the point, Tim glanced back. The beach was still empty. The sun sailed higher in the sky. He could see the cave now, even darker in the morning light. The sand turned silver then dark gold as the water flowed away from it. He had to force himself to go closer. Why was it so much more mysterious now? But it would be silly to go back now after so much trouble. He needn’t go in all the way… 41.What did Tim do at the beginning of the story? A. He left the house quietly. B. He had breakfast at home. C. He left a note on the freezer. D.

ABCAA 基础写作 Dear Editor, I’m writing to tell you the result of a survey I have done among my classmates on whether middle school students should do part-time jobs as it has also been a hot topic among us students. Nearly two-thirds of my 62 classmates has ever done or are doing part-time jobs, working as shop assistants, waiters in fast food restaurants or librarians. About half of them take up part-time jobs to help solve financial problems for their families. Others give up their leisure time because the jobs provide them with good chances to enrich their social experience and put what they have learned in class into practice. The other students do not do part-time jobs because under great pressure, students of senior three can not afford the time for the jobs which are poorly paid. Besides, their parents wouldn’t allow them to do that. Yours sincerely, Yang Li 读写任务 A boy was ashamed of his mother’s scar on the face. Knowing by accident it was caused when she tried to rescue him from a terrible fire at the risk of her life, he was touched and regretful. Children are said to be a gift from God for parents. Therefore, most parents are grateful for this great gift and never hesitate to sacrifice for their children. My friend, Tom, is disabled from birth, who can only move in a wheelchair. His parents devote all their love to him though most of their friends and relatives try to persuade them to give birth to one more child, which may at least ensure their happy life in their late years. Considerable difficulties are involved in looking after a disabled one, but Tom’s parents make every effort to ensure he can live as happy a life as any normal child. Their devotion and selfless love make Tom an active, confident boy and a top student in school, the most promising one to be admitted to Beijing University. Tom’s story is but one of the moving stories between parents and children. No one can deny that parents are the ones who love us most and deserve our deepest love. As children, we should always be thankful to their love and be ready to love them in return. 19. fastened 24. who 41-45. ACCCD 20. a 25. closer 46-50. BEAFD
