第二部分 阅读理解 (共两节, 满分 40 分)
第一节 (共 15 小题; 每小题 2 分, 满分 30 分) 阅读下面短文, 从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中, 选出最佳选项, 并在答题卡上将该 项涂黑。 A Almost five years ago, I announced to my loved ones I was to become a Mrs. Naturally. I then began to wonder about the perfect wedding dress, hoping that it would fit me. Even at the age of 23, I had gone through my share of dieting. I am an emotional eater and I knew that at 5 feet 5 inches tall and 180 pounds, I wasn’t at my healthiest. My mother had been doing Weight Watchers for some time and was rapidly seeing results
without starving herself. She shared her books with me and explained the program: estimate your daily target based on your weight and other factors, write down everything you eat and move! The longer I stuck to it the more I noticed a difference in the way I enjoyed food. I soon began to like eating fruits and vegetables for snacks instead of chocolate bars and chips. My mother and I went on walks together and kept each other in check. Unsurprisingly, I lost twenty pounds soon and looked amazing in my wedding dress. I buy healthy foods, replace ice cream and faithfully keep a food journal. I exercised and take evening walks. Because I have a hard time reaching for something healthy by myself, I bought a Weight Watchers cookbook and use it to prepare our meals. I use small plates and bowls to trick myself into believing there is more food than the serving size. It’s been hard to discipline myself not to eat badly. But when I find myself having a desire for strawberries instead of chocolate, I know it’s all worthwhile. 21．The author successfully lost twenty pounds ____________． A．by walking and eating less every day C．with the help of her mother 22．What is the third paragraph mainly about? A．How to prepare healthy food． B．What the author does to keep healthy． C．The role exercise plays in keeping fit． D．The ways of eating less food． 23．We know from the last paragraph that the author ____________． A．likes strawberries most C．can’t resist chocolate B．finds keeping a healthy diet easy D． has formed healthy eating habits B One of the most popular American singers of the twentieth century was Elvis Presley. He made the rock’ n’ roll music popular all over the world. He sold millions of records and made many successful films, and he helped change the direction of popular music in the 1960s. Elvis Presley was born in a poor family in 1935. His parents were simple country people who often took him to church ,where he learned to sing, and he never forgot the kind of songs that he used to sing in church as a child. When he was young, Elvis moved from Toledo to Memphis in Tennessee, where he attended high school, but he was not a good student. His only real interest was singing. He began to sing in the style that is called “country and western”. In 1955 he recorded some songs for his mother ’s birthday. The people at the recording studio liked his singing and his music. It was country and western music, but it also sounded a little like the music which black people used to sing in the American South. It was called “blues”. Shortly after that, Elvis met Tom Parker, who became his manger and arranged concerts for him across the United States and new recording as well. Soon Elvis became famous around the country. Later Elvis went to Hollywood and began to appear in films such as Love Me Tender and King Creole. But Elvis found it difficult to live with success, Like many other famous people, he began to take drugs and his health started to suffer. When he died at an early age of 42 in 1977, millions of his fans B．by only eating fruits and vegetables D． under her doctor’s direction
were shocked, “The King Is Dead!” the newspaper said. But today his memory and his music live on and will always be remembered as the King of Rock’ n’ roll. 24. From the passage, we can see ____________. A. the church songs didn’t help Elvis develop his own style. B. . Elvis didn’t get any help from his parents C the church songs helped Elvis develop his singing D. Elvis forgot his church music at a later age. 25. Who was Tom Parker? A. Elvis’ manager. C. A manager of a bank. 26 What caused Elvis’ death? A. Tom Parker ’s help. C. His parents’ death. B. His singing too much. D. His taking the drugs. B. A famous singer. D. Elvis’ best friend since childhood.
27. What was Elvis’ music style like most? A. Only country and western. B. Not only country and western but also a bit “blues”. C. Both western and church music. D. Only country and blues. C For most teachers, a day never seems long enough to get all the planning, teaching or paper correcting done. Parent volunteers, if available, can do a lot of help. Teachers can benefit from such help. New books can be marked Computers can be turned on or shut off properly. Teaching equipment can be cleaned and stored away. The list of jobs that parent volunteers can do is endless. Some schools even provide a coordinator(协调者) to introduce these volunteers to teachers. It is important to make sure volunteers feel useful and are given a variety of tasks to do. When a volunteer realizes there is no real contribution to make, he or sh e will not come back. Sometimes being given too many boring repetitive tasks drives volunteers away, too. A teacher who wants to use the service of volunteers successfully should give time to the planning of tasks. Make a list of possible tasks for the volunteer to do. The tasks can be kept in a notebook. Information such as class schedule, names of students and school rules could also be included in the notebook. When the volunteer arrives, the teacher may not immediately have an opportunity to explain tasks. The volunteer can then check the notebook and pick a job on his or her own decision. It is obvious that the class benefits from having adults. Children often behave better with the volunteer near them. Some volunteers work one-on-one with children or with small groups, helping children get needed attention. The volunteer can complete paper correcting or other tasks listed above, freeing the teacher for more teaching time. Meanwhile, parent volunteers do need to understand that any information about children is to remain confidential. They should be coached on appropriate methods in a school system. They especially need to be careful of what they say.
28. The first two paragraphs imply that ________. A. teachers should ask parents for help in class B. parents are unavailable to teachers in most schools C. parent volunteers are really needed in schools D. being a parent volunteer is popular in many schools 29. In order to keep parent volunteers interested, ________.[来源:学科网] A. tasks given to them should be considered ca refully B. teachers shouldn’t give them premising tasks C. schools should pay them for their good services D. a coordinator is necessary in every school 30. Why should a teacher list possible tasks in a notebook? A. Parent volunteers are interested in the tasks listed. B. It is necessary for parent volunteers to know all the tasks to do in class C. The teacher wants parent volunteers to choose jobs on their own. D.. It is helpful for parents to get involved in their jobs quickly. 31. Which o f the following statements is True according to the text? A. Parents can enter any classroom if they like. B. Any information about children should be kept secret. C. Parent volunteers shouldn’t ask for special training. D. Parent volunteers can help all children get needed attention. D China has a long tradition of respecting education. But its present education is not that respectable. According to the Hurun Reported, which conducted one-on-one interviews with 980 wealthy Chinese people with net assets of more than 60 million yuan($9.5 million) in 18 mainland cities from May to September, about 14 percent of them said they had either already moved overseas or had applied to do so, and another 46 percent said they planned to emigrate within three years. All cited the higher-quality education available for their children overseas as the reason. Such a mindset has resulted in a growing number of Chinese students studying abroad.To be fair, our primary and high schools are a leader in content throughout the world. The Program for International Student Assessment last year offered a feather in the cap for our education. Participating in the program administered by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, teenagers in Shanghai were far in advance of their ages from 64 countries, including the United States, in reading literacy, mathematics and science. So why does education in this country leave so many wealthy parents cold? Children in China have no say in what they learn. They normally learn by rote(死记硬背) and are forced to study the subjects that help them in examinations for a school of a higher grade, especially the college entrance exams. Studies conducted by the China Youth and Children Research Center show that more than half of Chinese Secondary school students study over time and they don’t get enough sleep. And more than 70
percent of the students in primary and middle schools take after-school tutoring classes, which is considered a heavy burden on children. And this situation turns many parents into devils like “Wolf Father” Xiao Baiyou in Guangdong province, who supported his children’s learning with verbal abuse and physical violence. Xiao doesn’t pale in comparison to Tiger Mother Amy Chua in the United States. He is satisfied with his parenting skills, as he has sent three of his four children to Peking University, one of China’s most influential higher learning institutions. Such ways of stimulating children to learn are certainly scary enough to make those Chinese parents with deep pockets choose a foreign school for their kids. As long as exams-oriented education continues, parents will look overseas for a better way to educate their children. 32. How many of the wealthy Chinese interviewed were in favor of moving overseas? A. 14% of them. A.A hope. B 32% of them. B. An escape. C. 46% of them. C. An honor D. 60% of them. D. A challenge. 33. What does “a feather in the cap” in Para. 4 most probably mean? 34. Education in China is criticized in this passage for the following weaknesses EXCEPT ___. A. Forcing children to take college entrance exams B. Burdening children with after-school tutoring classes C. Making children learn by rote memorization D. Depriving children of sleep with too much study 35. What is the author’s opinion of “Wolf Father” and “Tiger Mother” parenting style? A. Supportive B. Satisfactory C. Stimulating D. Scary 第二节 (共 5 小题; 每小题 2 分, 满分 10 分) 根据短文内容, 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 （温馨提醒：请将此题答案直接填在试卷第 9 页答题卷上） How to get motivated You must think positively no matter how big a challenge is.
