第二部分 阅读理解(共两节，满分 40 分) 第一节（共 15 题，每题 2 分，满分 30 分） A Going green seems to be fad (时尚) for a lot of people these days. Whether that is good or bad, we can't
really say, but for the two of us, going green is not a fad but a lifestyle. On April 22, 2011, we decided to go green every single day for an entire year. This meant doing 365 different green things, and it also meant challenging ourselves to go green beyond easy things. Rather than recycle and reduce our energy, we had to think of 365 different green things to do and this was no easy task. With the idea of going green every single day for a year, Our Green Year started. My wife and I decided to educate people about how they could go green in their lives and hoped we could show people all the green things that could be done to help the environment. We wanted to push the message that every little bit helps. Over the course of Our Green Year, we completely changed our lifestyle. We now shop at organic(有机 的)stores. We consume less meat, choosing green food. We have greatly reduced our buying we don't need. We have given away half of what we owned through websites. Our home is kept clean by vinegar and lemon juice, with no chemical cleaners. We make our own butter, enjoying the smell of home-made fresh bread. In our home office anyone caught doing something ungreen might be punished. Our minds have been changed by Our Green Year. We are grateful for the chance to have been able to go green and educate others. We believe that we do have the power to change things and help our planet. 21. What might be the best title for the passage? A. Celebrating Our Green Year. B. Protecting the Planet. C. Keeping Open-Minded D. Going Green. 22. It was difficult for the couple to live a green life for the whole year because_________. A. they needed to perform unusual green tasks B. they didn't know how to educate other people C. they were unwilling to reduce their energy D. they were expected to follow the green fad 23. What did the couple do over the course of Our Green Year? A. They ignore others' ungreen behavior. B. They tried to get out of their ungreen habits. C. They chose better chemical cleaners. D. They sold their home-made food. 24. What can we infer from the last paragraph? A. The government will give support to the green people. B. Some people disagree with the couple's green ideas. C. The couple may continue their project in the future. D. Our Green Year is becoming a national campaign. B “A very disruptive (调皮捣蛋的) six-year-old child kicked my legs and clawed at my hand,” said one teacher. “I broke up a fight and was kicked between my legs,” said another. Many people have heard stories like this. But the situation is more worrying still and it involves parents. Every child, regardless of the circumstances into which they are born, has the right to achieve their potential, regardless of their parents’ wealth and class. And we recognize that, as a nation, it is a long way to achieve this goal. But with rights come responsibilities and what worries people is that we are in danger of neglecting the latter. Far too many children are behaving badly at school, even to the point of being violent to staff. This is terrible enough, but it is hard to be surprised since many children are just mirroring the behaviour of their parents. Too many are starting school unable to hold a knife and fork, unused to eating at a table, and unable to use the lavatory(卫生间) properly. We are in danger of becoming a nation of families living separate lives under one roof. The bedroom,
once a place to sleep, has become the living space for the young. Spending hours in front of computer screens, on social networking sites or being immersed (沉迷于) in computer games, children and young people spend little time with their parents. Parents are unable to monitor just what their children are watching. Schools cannot right the wrongs of society and teachers cannot become substitute parents. Both parties need to work together. Parents must be helped and given confidence to take back control. They are responsible for setting boundaries for their children’s behaviour and sticking to those boundaries. They are responsible for setting a good example to their children and for devoting that most precious of resources---time---so that children come to school ready and willing to learn. 25. In the opinion of the writer, what problem do people ignore? A. The violence in the school B. The pressure of students’ learning C. The right to achieve students’ potential D. The responsibilities of the students. 26. The underlined part in paragraph 4 means________. A. parents care little about children’s life at home B. parents and children live in their separate rooms C. children don’t live with their parents in the same house D. children live a different life from that of parents at home 27. The writer’s attitude to the behaviours of parents may be_______. A. unconcern B. understanding C. dissatisfied D. tolerant C ◇ Share Flats Happy Valley big flat, 1 room ready for use immediately. Quiet and convenient, fully furnished, park view. $6, 800 including bills with maid. Female nonsmoker. No pet.

31. Once you can get a part-time job in NOVA ELECTRONICS, _______. A. you have to work at least 4 hours a day B. you should write a letter to Mrs. G Chan C. you will get no more than $6 598 each month D. you will be given 14 days off each year besides weekends D If you could take a large snapshot (照片) of everyone in the United States today, it would contain six minion more females than males. In this country, women outlive men by about seven years. Throughout the modern world, cultures are different, diets are different, ways of life and causes of death are different, but one thing is the same--- women outlive men. It starts before birth. At conception, male fetuses(胎儿) outnumber female by about 110 to 100; at birth, the rate has already fallen to about 105 boys to every 100 girls. By the age of 30, there are only enough men left to match the number of women. Then women start taking a lead. Beyond the age of 80, there are nearly twice as many women as men. “If you look at the top ten or twelve causes of death,” said Deborah Wingard, a disease expert at the University of California at San Diego, “every single one kills more men.” She listed out one sad fate after another – heart disease, lung cancer and so on. Each kills men at roughly twice the rate of that it does women. More than a century ago American men surpassed and outlived the women. But in the 20th century, women began living longer, primarily because pregnancy（怀孕) and giving birth to children had become less dangerous. The gap grew steadily. In 1946, for the first time ever in the United States, females outnumbered males. Parts of the reasons are self-made. Men smoke more, drink more and take more life-threatening chances than women. Men are murdered (usually by other men) three times as often as women are. They commit suicide at a higher rate and have more than twice as many fatal car accidents as women do. Men are likely to be involved in alcohol-related deaths. But behavior doesn’t explain away the longevity gap. Today, some scientists studying the gender gap believe that the data point to one conclusion: Mother Nature may be partial(偏袒) to women. Every living thing is assembled according to instructions on its chromosomes (染色体), and humans have 23 pairs of them. But in males, one of these is a weak non-matching pair, expressed by “xy”. The agreement pair in females is “xx”, and its genetic “backup” power is sometimes listed as a clue to woman’s superior restoring force. If the male’s single “x” chromosome isn’t perfect, it is possible for a serious genetic disorder to appear. Some blood diseases, for instance, are diseases caused by a shortcoming in a single gene on the “x” chromosome. They are far more common in males than females. 32. What may the underlined word “outlive” in Paragraph1 mean? A. Become stronger than. B. Live longer than. C. Be wiser than. D. Be born more earlier than. 33. What can we infer from the second paragraph? A. Female fetuses are more than male. B. The female are surpassing the male with age increasing. C. By the age of 30, the female are more than the male. D. Over 90, men are more than women in the United States. 34. How many exact diseases are mentioned as examples killing twice men than women? A. Two. B. Three. C. Ten. D. Five. 35. The best title for this passage is _____
A. Why women live longer than men C. American men once lived longer than the women 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分10分）
B. Women are different from men D. Men smoke and drank more than women

When all of the research has been completed and all of the sentences are structured well, but the paper still lacks some pizzazz（活力） ，it can be boring to grade. If you are searching for ways to help your students find their voices, why not try making students themselves the topic of the writing? 36 Who are you? One of the most difficult questions for students to answer is: “Who are you?” _ 37__ In doing this, through writing, students will start to see their personalities differently and, hopefully, be able to add a feature to their writing. Dear John 38 Encourage them to write to a famous person they’ve always admired, and then the one they absolutely hate. Explore how their language changes between the two letters. When students know their audiences, it is much easier for them to add the kind of personality their audience wants to see． 39 When students write about what matters most to them, they will often give you the best writing you’ve ever seen. You’ll get those when you ask questions that hit home. When students have something to say about a given topic, it can be easier for them to get their ideas down and then work on their writing style. Get the words on paper, and then edit them The most valuable lesson students can learn is to write first, and edit later. Have students write for five minutes about their topics. If they can get their ideas down on paper, that’s 90% of the battle. 40 This can help them realize that, once they have the ideas down, the rest is just fine tuning（微调）. Once they have this skill mastered, it’s easy for them to start adding their own personal voices to their papers. A.What matters to you? B. What style is taught in class? C. When they write about themselves, students’ voices often shine through. D. Writing letters is a great way for students to explore their writing style. E. Have your students explore who they are and what makes them unique. F. Voice is that magical quality which is able to make a creative writing idea sing! G. After that, have them edit these ideas into a really strong introductory paragraph. 第三部分 英语知识运用 第一节：完形填空 （共 20 小题；每题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） Tony Tomei was well-known in Los Alamos, N.M. for his heroic action when the forest fires swept thr ough last May.
