How would you like an easy way to earn $2,500? All you have to do is to sit around and wait for your meals. There’s a catch, however. You have to stay in a chicken cage with a stranger for a whole week. There are no books or television or radio for amusement. You can’t leave until the week is up. And a camera will be recording your every move. Two people actually took the job. The idea came from Rob Thompson, a video artist. He wanted to make a film about the way animals are treated. His goal was to raise people’s

awareness of the living conditions of animals that are raised for food. He decided to pay $5,000 out of his own savings to two people who were willing to live like chickens for a week. To Rob’s surprise, quite a few people answered his advertisement. He had interviewed and selected Eric, a 24-year-old restaurant worker, and Para, a 24-year-old chemist. The plan was for them to spend seven days together in a chicken cage that was six feet long and three feet wide. A camera would record their experiences, which would take place in an art museum. The week was long and difficult. They slept on a hard wooden floor. They couldn’t stand up without hanging their heads. They ate vegetables and drank water from a garden hosepipe. Their only privacy was a toilet surrounded by a curtain. There were no sinks, mirrors, or toothbrushes in the cage. Their only inspiration was the two framed checks that hung on the wall outside the cage. Visitors who came here were warned, “Do not feed the humans.” Finally it was over, and Para and Eric appeared from their cage. They had survived the week, and they each had a $2,500 check in their hands. When Rob Thompson opened the cage, Eric came out, changed into clean clothes, and ate a chocolate bar right away. “It’s great to be able to stand up,” he said. Para just changed her clothes and left. After a week of visitors and reporters watching her, she didn’t want to talk to anyone. 21. What kind of person is Rob Thompson? A. He is curious about people’s personal life. B. He is kind-hearted to animals. C. He hates people around. D. He likes to help poor people. 22. The underlined word “catch” probably means__________. A. unsolved problem B. surprising wonder C. unbelievable fact D. hidden difficulty 23. What made it most difficult for the two to stay in the cage? A. They didn’t know each other. B. They couldn’t lie down to sleep in the cage. C. They didn’t have meat to eat. D. They had to do almost everything under others’ eyes. 24. Rob offered the money because he wanted___________. A. to see if there were any people who would like to live in a cage B. to show the public how terrible animals’ life could be C. to make more money by publishing the recorded videotapes D. to improve housing conditions of working people like Eric 25. Which of the following would be the best title for this passage? A. Easy Way to Earn $2,500 B. Do Not Feed the Humans C. Living Like a Chicken D. Getting Along Well Anyway B Dear Mom, It's now two months since your passing. I survived your funeral, made it through my first motherless Mother's Day and am slowly re-entering everyday life. But I need to tell you, Mom, that it's not easy. I never thought we were terribly close. We actually spent more time butting our Irish heads together than not. Affection was not part of our history either. The turn of your cheek (脸颊) as I kissed you was all our physical interaction. But one thing we always could do was talk. Usually from opposite ends of the wire, mind you, but nonetheless we talked.

I called you every day. Our routines rarely varied. I'd ask about your lunch. You'd review CNN news. We'd talk about your grandchildren. Occasionally, you'd mention neighborhood happenings. Then I'd wish you good night and say good-bye. For the last 15 years, that was our routine. Occasionally, the pattern changed. I would guiltily miss a day. In that case you would call me. If I wasn't home, you refused to leave a message. You would just hang up muttering "damn machine." Eventually, you accepted modern technology and spoke. Your standard message, "You know who I am. You know my number. Bye!" It was always hard to say which was more frustrating -- your hang-ups or your messages. In the fall of 1995, you fell ill. Time and a careless lifestyle were seeking their revenge (报复). Doctors predicted the worst. "Not my mom," I thought. Little did they know about the strong-willed Irish woman lying in their hospital. You survived and returned home. The daily patterns of our phone calls continued. You were indestructible (不可战胜的). Or so it seemed to me. Three years later you again traveled to the hospital. Again the doctors predicted the worst. "Not my mom," again I insisted. “You people still don't know who you are dealing with.” Again you won the battle and came home, only this time to my home. Your advancing diseases would no longer allow you an independent lifestyle. Health officials warned me against bringing you into my home. They felt you were too tough a patient to handle. "Not my mom!" I decided living together would make up for the time we missed while I was growing up and you were working. On a rainy Thanksgiving Eve, I wrapped you up and brought you to my home. In March, five days before St. Patrick's Day, you died. You basically stopped eating and slowly wasted away. Nothing I could say or do made a difference. We argued regularly about diet and nutrition. I had to say to you, “You know you are killing yourself.” You calmly responded that you didn't have a death wish. You just weren't hungry. Now you are gone. I wish every day for the chance to call you, to talk about nothing, to argue about everything. I think were I not your daughter, I would have judged you a truly remarkable woman. Unfortunately, the characteristics that made you strong as a woman and successful as a career person are the same traits (特征) that put us in opposition as mother and daughter. Your death allows me now to see that so clearly. It is also totally strange. I just miss you and wanted to talk. Love, Christy 26. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 2 probably means the mother and daughter _______. A. conflicted with each other when they were together B. got along well with each other most of the time C. hugged each other to show affection when they met D. kissed each other on the forehead more often than on the cheeks 27. In the letter, the writer describes the following aspects of her mother EXCEPT ______. A. she loved her children very much though she might have seldom showed it B. she tended to reject new things because of her character C. she lived alone because she hated to communicate with others D. she was calm in the face of aging and death 28. What mainly caused the mother’s illness? A. The daughter’s neglect (忽视) of her in everyday life. B. Too much workload and too little rest. C. Aging and too careless a way of life.

D. Little nutrition and unhealthy diet. 29. Which of the following can describe the character of the mother? A. Easy to get along with. B. Loving but tough and strong-willed. C. Unloving and cross. D. Prejudiced and proud of herself. 30. Why does the writer write this letter to her mom? A. To make a brief summary of her mother’s life. B. To show her dissatisfaction with her mother’s careless way of life. C. Because she misses her mother and regrets not having staying with her more time. D. Because she realizes having treated her mother unfairly upon her death. 四、 任务型阅读 When difficult people express themselves orally, they generally want at least two things: they’ve been heard and they’ve been understand. As a good communicator should be a good listener, five steps are advocated toward good listening. The first step is cooperating (合作) . How does a difficult person know that you’re listening and understanding? In fact, it’s through the way you look and should while he is talking. You may help him to fully express his thoughts and feelings. You do this by nodding your head in agreement, making certain sounds of understanding. When the person begins to repeat what’s been said, it’s signal of step two: turning back. It means that you repeat back some words he is using, sending a clear signal that you’re listening carefully and that you think what he is saying is important. Having heard what he has to say, the next step is clarifying. At this point, you start to gather information about what is being communicated. Ask some open-ended questions, which will allow you to figure out what intention he is hoping to satisfy. The fourth step is to summarize(概括)what you’ve heard. This allows you to make sure that both you and the difficult person are on the same page. When you do this, two things happen. First, if you’ve shown that you’re making an effort to understand completely. This increases the possibility of gaining cooperation from him. Having listened carefully, you’ve now arrived at the point of confirming with the person that he feels that his thoughts have been fully voiced. Ask if he feels understood. When enough sincere listening, questioning, and remembering are brought together, understanding is usually achieved and a difficult person becomes less difficult and more cooperative. Topic (1) to understand Reason Difficult people hope they have been heard and(2) when they express themselves. (3)_____ ◆ (4) in agreement and make some sounds of understanding while a on difficult person is speaking. listening ◆ Repeat some(5) that you have heard. ◆ Collect information about the person’s expressions and find his(6) . ◆ Give a(7) of what the person has said. ◆ Confirm that the person gains (8) from speaking his thoughts. Result Commen t A difficult person will be(9) to cooperate with if understanding is achieved. You may unlock the doors to difficult people’s(10) ___after you listen and understand
