    College students constantly hear the praises of education. We have all become used to believing that a college education is always a guarantee (保证) of an easier life. I was nine years old when my fourth-grade teacher presented me with a task, to write down all of the things I wanted in my life. I filled my paper with things like: own a big house and have servants; be rich and have a good job. The next day my teacher handed back my paper and in red ink she wrote: “GO TO COLLEGE.” For a long time, I was completely sure that once I got an education, BAM! Life would be easier.

    However, education cannot promise all wishes, dreams, and desires (strong wishes). Society must refuse to accept the foolish idea that a college education's main purpose is to satisfy our desires and secure success. Like most challenging things, education is a gamble(赌博)in which results depend entirely on people’s ability to look past their wants to see the realism and reason behind their wants.

    For instance, my first year of college, I took a sociology class. In class, we were taught that Third World countries were poor. We learned that our quality of life would be almost impossible for an average person in those countries. I began to examine my own desire to be rich. To always go after money felt selfish when knowing others had none at all. Learning about other society's financial situations forced me to look beyond what I wanted.

    Through the process (过程) of education, everything once desired is tested. Wanting something is no longer enough; it’s more important to examine why we want it and whether we really want it. When my desire for money changed, everything changed. I stopped longing for money-driven careers and stopped valuing the people who had them. I began to examine the things I purchased and my reason for wanting them.

    Education is a tool to be used to develop and advance our desires, so we can discover the things that are truly significant in life. Education is a source to expand our society to see beyond the superficial(表面的)attraction and the “quick fixes”, leaving the belief of an effortless life behind in order to desire a meaningful one.

    32. The author’s fourth-grade teacher probably agreed that ______.

    A. the author was an ambitious student

    B. the author should set more realistic goals

    C. a college student would lead an easier life

    D. a college degree was the key to the author's dreams

    33. Why does the author mention her sociology class?

    A. To share her learning experiences with readers.

    B. To support her new understanding about education.

    C. To express her feeling of being sorry for people in Third World.

    D. To stress the importance of taking a sociology course.

    34. With a college education, the author ______.

    A. disliked rich people            B. lost interest in career

    C. desired more material things       D. stopped always looking for more wealth

    35. What’s the main idea of the passage?

    A. College education promises an effortless life.

    B. College education tests and guides our life desires.

    C. College education offers solutions to social problems.

    D. College education turns young people into gamblers.

    Papa, as a son of a dirt-poor farmer, left school early and went to work in a factory, for education was for the rich then. So, the world became his school. With great interest, he read everything he could lay his hands on, listened to the town elders and learned about the world beyond his tiny hometown. "There's so much to learn," he'd say. "Though we're born stupid, only the stupid remain that way. " He was determined that none of his children would be denied (拒绝) an education.

    Thus, Papa insisted that we learn at least one new thing each day. Though, as children, we thought this was crazy, it would never have occurred to us to deny Papa a request. And dinner time seemed perfect for sharing what we had learned. We would talk about the news of the day; no matter how insignificant, it was never taken lightly. Papa would listen carefully and was ready with some comment, always to the point.
    Then came the moment—the time to share the day's new learning.

    Papa, at the head of the table, would push back his chair and pour a glass of red wine, ready to listen.
    "Felice," he'd say, "tell me what you learned today. "
    "I learned that the population of Nepal is .... "
    Silence.

    Papa was thinking about what was said, as if the salvation of the world would depend upon it. "The population of Nepal. Hmm. Well . . . . " he'd say. "Get the map; let's see where Nepal is. " And the whole family went on a search for Nepal.

    This same experience was repeated until each family member had a turn. Dinner ended only after we had a clear understanding of at least half a dozen such facts.

    As children, we thought very little about these educational wonders. Our family, however, was growing together, sharing experiences and participating in one another's education. And by looking at us, listening to us, respecting our input, affirming our value, giving us a sense of dignity, Papa was unquestionably our most influential teacher.

    Later during my training as a future teacher I studied with some of the most famous educators. They were imparting what Papa had known all along—the value of continual learning. His technique has served me well all my life. Not a single day has been wasted, though I can never tell when knowing the population of Nepal might prove useful.

    25.  What do we know from the first paragraph?

    A.   The author's father was born in a worker's family.

    B.   Those born stupid could not change their life.

    C.   The town elders wanted to learn about the world.

    D.   The poor could hardly afford school education.

    26.  The underlined word "it" in the second paragraph refers to "  

    A. one new thing       B. a request       C. the news D. some comment

    27.  It can be learned from the passage that the author      .

    A.   enjoyed talking about news          B.       knew very well about Nepal

    C.   felt regret about those wasted days    D . appreciated his father's educational technique

    When you leave school, you can breathe a sigh of relief and leave learning behind, right? Wrong! Learning should last a lifetime. You exercise your body to stay strong, and you should exercise your mind to stay sharp.

    An English idiom says, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” But scientists have discovered that isn’t true. Older people can learn, and they should, in order to keep their brain active. Now a new trend has begun in several states in the US that encourages learning. Adults can attend One Day University. They can spend a Saturday or Sunday hearing four 70-minute lectures. Each one is given by

    a top university professor. One of the original participants said, It’s like a health club for the brain.” Also, universities like MIT have made all of their

    courses and lectures available online for free. Libraries offer learning programs too.

    With so much available, there is no excuse not to learn!

    Learning is a habit. Don’t leave it behind after you leave school. On the

    website lifehack.org, author Scott Young mentions several things to help you.

    Always have a book. It doesn’t matter if you read fast or slow. Just read. If you read just one book a week, you’ll read 52 over the course of a year. Think of the knowledge you’ll gain.

    Practice it. As you read, do something with what you’ve learned. Don’t just enjoy the mental exercise. Use the knowledge. If you read about painting, try it!

    Make a “to learn” list. Compose a “to learn” list for yourself. Maybe you want to speak better English, play the piano, or cook French food. Whatever interests you, put it on your list and then make the time to do it.

    Teach others. Whatever you learn, teach someone else. You’ll not only help others but also understand what you’ve learned.

    41.    What’s the best title for this passage?

    A.   Make learning last a lifetime.

    B.  What you should do after leaving school.

    C.   Several tips on learning.

    D.  A new trend in learning.

    42.    What does the underlined part in Paragraph 1 mean?

    A.   You don’t need to consider what you have learnt after graduation.

    B.  Leaving learning behind is what you should do after a break.

    C.   You can relax as you have escaped from the hard life of studying.

    D.  You should have a good rest and then go on learning.

    43.    How many ways of learning for adults in the US are mentioned in Paragraph 2?

    A. One.                         B. Two.                         C. Three.                       D. Four.

    44.    Which of the following is NOT a suggestion made by Scott Young in the passage?

    A. Keep learning as a habit.                                  B. Always have a book.

    C. List what you want to learn.                              D. Teach others what you learn.

    45.    From the passage we learn that                           .

    A.   we should read as fast as possible to gain more knowledge

    B.  we should use the knowledge we have gained from books

    C.   we can gain every kind of knowledge through books

    D.  the main purpose of gaining knowledge is to teach others

    A New Mind-set

    With teenagers at home, tempting foods were always around Mary Saltsman. But she made one change a week and the weight started to come off --- 18 pounds so far. And she’s thrilled about another positive benefit: Her kids have started imitating her healthy eating habits.

    A New Way of life

    Debra Outlaw’s ChangeOne journey began 116 pounds ago. Now, she is much healthier and more in control of her eating. “Staying with the plan consistently is key,” she says. “With dedication and perseverance, every temptation does not become a war.

    Conquering Snacks

    Snacking was getting Michael Krauss in trouble. “I’d open a bag of chips and just start in on them without even thinking about what they tasted like,” he said. “I never even took time to think about whether I was hungry.” On ChangeOne, he spent two weeks getting snacks under control. Once he did, he started to see results on the scale right away: After four weeks, he was down 13 pounds.

    Feeling Good About Herself

           Frustrated with her inability to lose weight and keep it off, Gail Davis wanted to try a weight-loss program. “I never had any faith in gimmicks (骗人的玩意儿) or fads,” she says. So she tried ChangeOne and now, 50 pounds lighter, she’s thrilled with her results. 

    Little Changes Make a Difference

    “The secret for me was making the little changes one at a time and not thinking I had to change my diet and schedule all at once in a drastic way. I have lost 29 pounds, and now walk at least 6 days a week.”

    For more information about ChangeOne, please call 1-999-5649852 or visit us on the World Wide Web at http://www.ChangeOne.com.

    69. Who lost 13 pounds in weight after four weeks according to the passage?

    A. Mary Saltsman.                     B. Debra Outlaw.               C. Michael Krauss.     D. Gail Davis.

    70. What is the “ChangeOne” probably?

    A. A weight-loss program.   B. A healthy diet.               C. A kind of medicine.        D. A training course.

    71. The passage most probably is  ___________.

       FinallyI entered the university. Because of my careful savingsI did not have to work during the school years. Then summer came and it was time to work harder than ever. I continued working as a waitress at nightinstructed tennis camps several mornings a week and worked as a secretary for a few hours in the afternoons. I even decided to take a class at a community college. This class at the community college saved me $650.It was an extremely tiring summer and made me anxious to return to my relatively easy life at the university.

        During my second and third years of undergraduate schoolingI decided to work about five hours per week in the campus admissions office answering phones. This provided a little spending money and kept me from drawing my savings out .The overall situation looked  hopeful as I approached my senior year as long as I could make as much money as I had the previous summer. I wanted to go to Israel to study for 3 weeksbut I hesitated in making this decision because it would cost me $1,600 more to get the credits in Israel. About two weeks later my mom called to tell me that I had $1,600 in the bank that I had forgotten aboutOne of my concerns about this trip was not only the costbut the loss of time to make moneyhoweverI made as much that summer in the ten weeks when I was at home as I had made during the fourteen weeks when I was at home the summer before. The way everything worked together to make this trip possible was one of the most exciting things that have ever happened to me.

    This experience has shaped me in many important ways. The first thing that I learned was the importance of a strong work ethic. Working long hours did a lot to develop my character and helped me learn the value of a dollar. It also made me learn how to search for creative ways to settle difficult situations.

    I have many new teachers in high school, but Lori Runkle, my English Language and Composition teacher, is my favorite teacher.

    Ms. Runkle enjoys getting to know more about students, so I have many chances to talk with her after class. I have always wanted to become a journalist (新闻记者). Since Ms. Runkle used to be a journalist back in the United States, she has introduced many helpful journalistic writing skills to me.

    Although she is my teacher, Ms. Runkle and I are more like friends. She often invites my classmates and me to take part in different activities outside of school. For example, I went to listen to a journalist’s speech, which helped me better understand current events (时事).

    Not only does Ms. Runkle talk with me outside of school, she is also a great teacher in the classroom. English Language and Composition is a really hard subject for a second language learner. We felt worried in the beginning, but Ms. Runkle really makes an effort to help us out. In class, Ms. Runkle always encourages students to question everything to keep us active. One part of class I love the most is when groups of students are required to give speeches on events that are happening in the world. It requires a lot of deep thinking and I really learn quite a lot from it.

    I love Ms. Runkle very much. She not only helps me to get good scores, but also acts as a good friend and always gives me advice on life.

    When a child is told he is "uncool", it can be very painful. He may say he doesn't care, and even act in ways that are opposite of cool on purpose. But ultimately, these are simply ways to handle sadness by pretending it's not there.

    Helping a child feel better in school had to be careful. If you say, "Why are you worried about what other children think about you? It doesn't matter!" children know that it does matter. Instead, an active way may be best. You could say, "I'm going to do a couple of things for you to help you feel better in school."

    If a boy is having trouble making friends, the teacher can help him. The teacher can arrange things so that he has chances to use his abilities to contribute to class projects. This is how the other children learn how to value his good qualities and to like him. A teacher can also raise a child's popularity in the group by showing that he values that child. It even helps to put him in a seat next to a very popular child, or let him be a partner with that child in activities, etc.

    There are things that parents can do at home, too. Be friendly when your child brings others home to play. Encourage him to invite friends to meals and then serve the dishes they consider "super". When you plan trips, picnics, movies, and other shows, invite another child with whom your child wants to be friends.

    What you can do is to give him a chance to join a group that may be shutting him out. Then, if he has good qualities, he can start to build real friendship of his own.

    11A child who has been informed of being "uncool" may _____.

    A. care nothing about it

    B. develop a sense of anger

    C. do something uncool purposely

    D. pretend to get hurt very much

    12A teacher can help an unpopular child by _____.

    A. seeing the child as the teacher's favourite

    B. asking the child to do something for partners

    C. forcing other children to make friends with the child

    D. offering the child chances to show his good qualities

    13How can parents help their child fit in better?

    A. By cooking delicious food for him.

    B. By being kind to his schoolmates.

    C. By forcing him to invite friends home.

    D. By taking him to have picnics in the park.

    14Which of the following is TRUE?

    A. Children don't care about others' comments on them.

    B. It's only a teacher's work to make children popular.

    C. Parents should take their children out for picnic and shows more often.

    D. Inviting children's friends to family activities is good for them to make friends.

           Our education system was invented. There were no public systems of education before the 19th century. They all came into being to meet the needs of industrialism. So the most useful subjects for work are at the top and you were probably driven away from what you did as a kid at school--things you liked--because you would never get a job doing that. Is that right? Don’t do music. You’re not going to be a musician. Don’t do art. You’re not going to be an artist. In addition, the whole system of public education around the world is a process of university entrance. And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they’re not because the thing they were good at wasn’t valued at school.

    I think we can’t afford to go on that way. In the next 30 years, more people worldwide will be graduating through education than since the beginning of the history. Suddenly, degrees aren’t worth anything. When I was a student, if you had a degree, you had a job. But now you need a Master’s degree where the previous job required a Bachelor, and now you need a Ph.D. for the other. It’s a process of academic inflation (膨胀), and it indicates the whole structure of education needs changing.

    All the great teachers I’ve ever met and worked with are people who can inspire interest and curiosity and light up people’s imaginations with the interests they themselves have for a particular field of work. I mean, teaching is not only a process of giving people direct instructions and information they have to memorize, it is much more than that.

    I believe our only hope for the future is to rethink the fundamental principles on which we are educating our children. And our task is to educate their whole being so they can face the future. By the way, we may not see this future, but they will. And our job is to help them make something of it.

    25. Things little kids like to do are not taught at school because they _____.

           A. are not useful for making a living

           B. are not challenging enough for students

           C. don't meet the expectation of parents

           D. don't fit in classroom teaching

    26. The author develops the second paragraph mainly _____.

           A. by classification        B. by process

           C. by example            D. by comparison

    27. In the author’s view, a good teacher should _____.

           A. be imaginative

           B. be knowledgeable

           C. create their own ways of teaching

           D. encourage people to develop their interests

    This weekly four-day physical activity schedule will get your kids excited about being active.

    Tuesday

    When the kids get home from school, don’t let them go straight to the TV and get settled in. Encourage them to get moving and get off the couch(沙发) by giving them a pedometer(计步器). Pedometers are the most fun when parents also use one because that turns stepping, walking and running into a game to see who can get the most steps.

    Thursday

    The kids have done a great job so far this week, but now they long for a little more TV time. Instead of turning on cartoons, let them watch fitness movies made just for kids. These movies encourage watchers to get up and dance along to kid-friendly music.

    Saturday

    Get the whole family out of the house together and over to a park. Bring lots of sports equipment, pack a healthy picnic and have a family competitive sports day. Kids and adults get into groups and play against each other in tennis, basketball or soccer. After everyone has played hard for a couple of hours, stop for a picnic and then if your family isn’t too tired, go back and play some more.

    Sunday

    Every child loves to play video games and there is no better time to allow kids to play them than on Sunday when no homework is due. But don’t let them play a game that forces them to sit down for hours. Dance games with a floor mat(垫子) to help kids follow the dance moves are popular to kids.

    21. Parents are advised to use a pedometer together with their kids because _______.

    A. they can give their kids some advice about walking

        High school students have always spread gossip (传言) in the halls, on the walls and on the phone. Now it’s on the Internet, too. On various message boards, kids write about whom they hate, whom they think have fallen in love with each other and record other often hurtful things that may or may not be true.

         Sixteen-year-old Jessica remembers once when some kids at her school wrote cruel things about her on the web. “They were just making fun of me,” she says. They said she’s really ugly, she’s this, she’s that, blah-blah-blah.

         Jessica’s 11-year-old sister, Emma, admits she’s used the web to write bad things about another girl, though she regrets it now. “After a while, you may feel like, how could I have been so mean? Or, why did I do that?” she says.

         Experts say gossip on the Internet can be more harmful than the old fashioned kind. It lasts longer and is taken more seriously. And, unlike ugly words on the bathroom wall, there’s no way to get rid of it.

          If your kids are victims(受害者) of online gossip, Dr. Commanday suggests putting the gossip in to perspective (正确看待). “Point out to them how what’s being said on the screen differs from what everyone knows about you as a person,” Dr. Commanday says.

          You can also try what worked from Emma: keep your kids off the offensive (冒犯的) website! “When she was using it all the time, her name was there all the time. People were writing things about her,” explains Patti Thrift, Emma’s mother, “Since she has no longer had access to that, she’s no longer a topic of conversation.”

    13. From the examples of Jessica’s sister, we can learn that ______.

    A. ugly girls like to spread gossip online   B. ugly girls easily become victims of online gossip

    C. gossip-makers can regret what they do  D. online gossip is mainly some jokes on others

    14. According to the passage, why is online gossip more hurtful?

    A. It is written words.         B. It cannot be removed easily.

    C. It is much uglier.           D. It is easier to believe.

    15. The purpose of the passage is to ___________.

    A. give some tips on how to prevent hurt of gossip on the Internet

    B. list the difference between the old fashioned gossip and gossip on the Internet

     C. advise students to keep away from the Internet

     D. introduce different kinds of hurt students might meet with

           Parents will do anything for their children. Whether it would be the food, clothes, or the place they live, parents will always make sure their children have the best of everything. One of the biggest concerns that parents currently have is educating their children. They are faced with lots of difficulties when it comes to education for their young ones. Choices include private school, charter school, public school or homeschooling.

           Fortunately for parents, there are a variety of different strategies that a parent can take in order to increase their child's skills and overall intelligence. According to Ross A. Thompson, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of California at Davis, a child's brain will actually reach 90% of its full size by the time they start kindergarten.

           Researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago concluded that playing a musical instrument directly affected the brain stem, the lower section of the brain. Moreover, children that learn an instrument at an early age tend to continue it when they are older. And numerous studies show that a well balanced meal is essential for a child's mental and physical health. It is recommended that parents teach their children two languages at once. Research suggests that a second language should be taught when children are in preschool. Other studies state that three to four years of age is the perfect time. Clearly, any age under four would work perfectly fine for a child.

           The average child will learn how to read between kindergarten and second grade. Many parents can give their children a jump start by teaching them to read before they start school. Children could have an adequate background of the alphabet and sounds of words before attending school. This can be done by simply reading to them whenever you want. The more comfortable they get, the easier the process will be.

    32. From the first paragraph, we can infer that       .

           A. parents find it hard to satisfy their kids' various demands

           B. parents meet a new challenge when raising their kids

           C. parents have more choices in offering education to their kids

           D. parents get actively involved in the process of their kids' growth

    33. What suggestion may the researchers in the passage make?                         

           A. To train kids as early as possible.

           B. To try as many means as possible.

           C. To help kids develop as fully as possible.

           D. To use as many available resources as possible.

    34. What does the third paragraph mainly discuss about?

           A. The proper time to teach children to learn languages.

           B. The effective ways to help develop children's brains.

           C. The vital factors to have a great effect on children's health.

           D. The practical steps to arouse children’s interest in study.

    35. We can replace the words “jump start” in the last paragraph with             .

           A. inspiration        B. introduction     C. suggestion             D. promotion

    EVERYONE’S talking about it in American high schools. Whether they are hip-hop fans or just students or just students or teachers who listen to good music of any genre(类型), they all have one thing in common: an obsession with Hamilton, a hip-hop musical about the forgotten founding father of the United States on the $10 bill. What makes this musical so different from all the other ones?

    “Everybody is so excited about it.” Mark Madama, associate professor of musical theater at the University of Michigan, said, “It is something for the students. Hip-hop music is what they listen to when they are walking down the street and all of a sudden, now that is also the music that is in musical theater.”

    The full title of the show is Hamilton: An American Musical, and it tells the stories of Alexander Hamilton’s life: from a homeless orphan to Washington’s right hand man(得力助手), from an unknown to war hero. The idea of a Broadway musical about a founding father with hip-hop music has gotten enough attention on its own.

    One of the most amazing details of this phenomenon is that most of the students have never even seen it. Nazareth High School junior Maddy Schierl has never seen the show live but said she still relates to it deeply. “There is so much emotion in the music that I feel like I have experienced the show’s essence(本质)without even having to see it,” Schierl said.

    Students and teachers are finding other ways to fall in love with Hamilton, whether they do it through listening to its music, watching short videos on YouTube or even studying it in the classroom. Katja Stonebraker, who teaches AP US history at Cary-Grove High School, described the musical as “ a teacher’s dream”, Stonebraker plans to use Hamilton more in the future because of the interesting perspective it tells Hamilton’s story from.

    “ You see these old dead guys, and they are who you have to memorize and learn,” Stonebraker said,-But I think Hamilton makes history real and relatable.”

    28. The underlined word “obsession” in Paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to ______.

    A. strong enthusiasm   B. great respect  

    C. lack of interest      D. total surprise

    29. Hamilton is a musical that appeals to students because_______.

    A. its story is closely related to students’ lives today

    B. it uses hip-hop, which is very popular among students

    C. it has been specially designed to satisfy students’ tastes

    D. it tells interesting stories from the life of a founding father of the US

    30. The example of Maddy Schierl is used to ______.

    A. prove that Hamilton is very popular among students

    B give an example of people’s comments about Hamilton

    C. explore the controversies behind Hamilton’s popularity

    D. show that people can connect to Hamilton without seeing it

    31. Which of the following statements would Stonebraker probably agree with?

    A. Hamilton tells Hamilton’s story vividly and from a different viewpoint.

    B. Hamilton is the best teaching material she has ever used

    C. Every student will become more interested in history after seeing Hamilton.

       D. There will be more musicals about historical figures in the future.

    My parents moved to Mississippi when my brother and I were small children, and we were separated from our Oklahoma grandparents by some 600 miles. This geographic distance allowed us to only visit our grandparents once a year, either at Christmas or during summer vacation.

    Most of my classmates lived near their grandparents, and I would routinely hear stories of extended families (大家庭) regularly spending time with one another, fishing at grandpa's house or going over to grandma's for her famous fried chicken. We were disappointed that we did not get to spend more time with our grandparents, but our love for them remained deep and strong.

    We always expected a road trip to Oklahoma. We would count the days, and when Day I came, the entire family would pile into the car at four o'clock in the morning. Crossing the Mississippi River into Louisiana, the landscapes  (风景) changed. Crossing the Red River in Oklahoma, we were in a foreign world.

    Every trip to see my grandparents can't be without bringing delight. We jumped out of the car in their driveway to be met with bear hugs. My grandparents wanted to know everything about their grandchildren, and we would sit for hours and tell story after story. Grandma had a meal planned, and you could bet she fixed her grandsons' favorite foods. Of course the best part of the visit was that we were able to do whatever we wanted without punishment from our grandparents. Grandma and Grandpa always had presents for us, neat scenic trips planned and lovely surprises, such as the time we got to go to a local restaurant and eat the world's largest hamburger.

    32The family don't visit the grandparents often because ______.

    Athey seldom have a vacation       

    Bthey have a bad attitude to them

    Cthey are all busy with their work    

    Dthey live far away from each other

    Aoften felt deep sorrow            

    Bwould call his grandparents

    Cfelt a bit jealous at heart          

    Dwould feel sorry for his poor life

    34Whenever the author and his brother met their grandparents, they ________.

    Awere all full of great excitement     

    Bfound they were in a foreign world

    Cshared cooking skills with each other 

    Dseemed not to be familiar with each other

    35What can we infer from the author's story?

    ADistance can't break the bond of love.

    BPhysical separation hurts the heart deeply.

    CDistance leads to the most beautiful scene.

    DFamily life is filled with love and understanding.

    Bringing up children is hard work, and you are often to blame for any bad behavior of your children. If so, Judith Rich Harris has good news for you. Parents, she argues, have no important long -term effects on the development of the personality of their children. Far more important are their playground friends and neighborhood. Ms. Harris takes to hitting the assumption, which has dominated(支配) developmental psychology for almost half a century.

    Ms. Harris's attack on the developmental psychologists "nurture" argument looks likely to reinforce(加强) doubts that the profession was already having. If parents matter, why is it that two adopted children, brought up in the same home, are no more similar in personality than two adopted children brought up in separate homes? Or that a pair of identical twins, brought up in the same home, are no more alike than a pair of identical twins brought up in different homes?

    Difficult as it is to track the clear effects of parental upbringing, it may be harder to measure the exact influence of the peer(同龄人) group in childhood and adolescence. Ms. Harris points to how children from immigrant homes soon learn not to speak at school in the way their parents speak. But acquiring a language is surely a skill, rather than a characteristic of the sort developmental psychologists hunt for. Certainly it is different from growing up tensely or relaxed, or from learning to be honest or hard -working or generous. Easy though it may be to prove that parents have little impact on those qualities, it will be hard to prove that peers have vastly more.

    Moreover, mum and dad surely cannot be ignored completely. Young adults may, as Ms. Harris argues, be keen to appear like their peers. But even in those early years, parents have the power to open doors: they may choose the peers with whom their young associate, and pick that influential neighborhood. Moreover, most people suspect that they come to resemble their parents more in middle age. So the balance of influences is probably complicated. Even if it turns out that the genes they pass on and the friends their children play with matter as much as affection, discipline and good example, parents are not completely off the hook

    28According to Ms. Harris,______.

    Aparents are to blame for any bad behavior of their children

    Bchildren's personality is largely shaped by their friends and neighbors

    Cnature rather than nurture has a significant effect on children' s personality development

    Dparents will affect greatly the children's life in the long run

    29The developmental psychologists think    .

    A. children are more influenced by their peers

    B. identical twins raised in the same home are different in personality

    C. twins raised in two separate families are different in personality

    D. upbringing has a less significant effect on childrens personality development

    30According to Paragraph 3, we know that    .

    A. it is easier for children to gain a language at home

    B. it is harder to follow the effects of parental upbringing

    C. immigrant children avoid speaking the same way as their parents at school

    D. it is proved that peers have a greater effect on childrens qualities

    31What does the author mean by saying parents are not completely off the look at the end of the passage

    A. Parents should control the situation.

    B. Parents should give their way to children.

    C. Parents should spend more time on children.

    D. Parents should take on their responsibility.

    Usually, when your teacher asks a question, there is only one correct answer. But there is one question that has millions of current answers. That question is “What’s your name?” Everyone gives a different answer, but everyone is correct.

    Have you ever wondered about people’s names? Where do they come from? What do they mean?

    People’s first names, or given names, are chosen by their parents. Sometimes the name of a grandparent or other member of the family is used. Some parents choose the name of a well-known person. A boy could be named George Washington Smith; a girl could be named Helen Keller Jones.

    Some people give their children names that mean good things. Clara means “bright”; Beatrice means “one who gives happiness”; Donald means “world ruler”; Leonard means “as brave as a lion”.

    The earliest last names, or surnames, were taken from place names. A family with the name Brook or Brooks probably lived near brook(小溪)someone who was called Longstreet probably lived on a long, paved road. The Greenwood family lived in or near a leafy forest.

    Other early surnames came from people’s occupations. The most common occupational name is Smith, which means a person who makes things with iron or other metals. In the past, smiths were very important workers in every town and village. Some other occupational names are: Carter — a person who owned or drove a cart; Potter —a person who made pots and pans.

    The ancestors of the Baker family probably baked bread for their neighbors in their native village. The Carpenter’s great-great-great-grandfather probably built houses and furniture.

    Sometimes people were known for the color of their hair or skin, or their size, or their special abilities. When there were two men who were named John in the same village, the John with the gray hair probably became John Gray. Or the John was very tall could call himself John Tallman. John Fish was probably an excellent swimmer and John Lightfoot was probably a fast runner or a good dancer.

    Some family names were made by adding something to the father’s name. English-speaking people added –s or –son. The Johnsons are descendants of John; the Roberts family’s ancestor was Robert. Irish and Scottish people added Mac or Mc or O. Perhaps all of the MacDonnells and the McDonnells and the O’Donnells are descendants of the same Donnell.

    28. Which of the following aspects do the surnames in the passage NOT cover?

    A. Places where people lived.            B. People’s characters.

    C. Talents that people possessed.        D. People’s occupations.

    29. According to the passage, the ancestors of the Potter family most probably _______.

    A. owned or drove a cart                   B. made things with metals

    C. made kitchen tools or containers      D. built houses and furniture

    30. Suppose(假设) an English couple whose ancestors lived near a leafy forest wanted their new-born son to become a world leader, the baby might be named _______.

    A. Beatrice Smith                           B. Leonard Carter

    C. George Longstreet                       D. Donald Greenwood

    31. The underlined word descendants in the last paragraph means a person’s ______. 

    A. later generations                         B. friends and relatives

    C. colleagues and partners                 D. later sponsors

    Parents and kids today dress alike, listen to the same music, and are friends. Is this a good thing? Sometimes, when Mr. Ballmer and his 16-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, listen to rock music together and talk about interests they both enjoy, such as pop culture, he remembers his more distant relationship with his parents when he was a teenager.

    “I would never have said to my mom, ‘Hey, the new Weezer album is really great. How do you like it?’” says Ballmer. “There was just a complete gap in taste.”

    Music was not the only gulf. From clothing and hairstyles to activities and expectations, earlier generations of parents and children often appeared to move in separate orbits(轨道).

    Today, the generation gap has not disappeared, but it is getting narrow in many families. And parent—child activities, from shopping to sports, involve a feeling of trust and friendship that can continue into adulthood.

    But family experts warn that the new equality can also result in less respect for parents. “There’s still a lot of strictness and authority(权威) on the part of parents out there, but there is a change happening,” says Kerrie, a psychology professor at Lebanon Valley College. “In the middle of that change, there is a lot of confusion among parents.”

    Family researchers offer a variety of reasons for these changing roles and attitudes. They see the 1960s as a turning point. Great cultural changes led to more open communication and a more democratic(民主的) process that encourages everyone to have a say.

    “My parents were on the ‘before’ side of that change, but today’s parents, the 40-year-olds, were on the ‘after’ side,” explains Mr. Ballmer. “It’s not something easily achieved by parents these days, because life is more difficult to understand or deal with, but sharing interests does make it more fun to be a parent now.”

    52. The underlined word “gulf” in Para.3 most probably means _________.

    A. distance                     B. interest                C. similarity        D. cooperation

    53. The change in today’s parent-child relationship is _________.

    A. more confusion among children.

    B. less respect for parents from children.

    C. new equality between parents and children.

    D. more strictness and authority on the part of parents.

    54. By saying “today’s parents, the 40-year-olds, were on the ‘after’ side.” the author means that today’s parents _________.

    A. can set a limit to the change.        

    B. follow the trend of the change.

    C. fail to take the change seriously.

    D. have little difficulty adjusting(适应)to the change.

    55. The purpose of the passage is to _________.

    A. describe the difficulties today’s parents have met with.

    B. discuss the development of the parent—child relationship.

    C. suggest the ways to handle the parent—child relationship.

    D. compare today’s parent—child relationship with that in the past.
