I was busy preparing the traditional Thanksgiving turkey when the doorbell rang. I opened the front door and saw two small children in rags huddling together on the top step. "Any old papers, lady?" asked one of them. I was busy. I wanted to say "no" until I looked down at their feet. They were wearing thin little sandals(凉鞋), wet with heavy snow. "Come in and I'll make you a cup of hot cocoa." They walked over and sat down at the table. Their wet sandals left marks upon the floor. I served them cocoa and bread to fight against the cold outside. Then I went back to the kitchen and started cooking. The silence in the front room struck me. I looked in. The girl held the empty cup in her hands, looking at it. The boy asked in a flat voice, "Lady, are you rich?" "Am I rich? Pity, no!" I looked at my worn-out slipcovers( 椅套 ). The girl put her cup back in its saucer( 茶 碟)carefully and said, "Your cups match your saucers". They left after that, holding their papers against the wind. They had reminded me that I had so much for which to be grateful. Plain blue china cups and saucers were only worth five pence. But they matched. I tasted the potatoes and stirred(搅动)the meat soup. Potatoes and brown meat soup, a roof over our heads, my man with a regular job, these matched, too. I moved the chairs back from the fire and cleaned the living room. The muddy marks of little sandals were still wet upon my floor. Let them be for a while, I thought, just in case I should begin to forget how rich I am. 1. The writer let the two children come in and served them well because________. A. she wanted to sell old papers to them. B. she wanted to invite them to her Thanksgiving party. C. she showed great pity and care on them. D. she had the same experience as them in the past. 2. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?
A. The girl thought the writer was rich just because she wanted to make the writer happy. B. The writer had thought she wasn't rich because her supplies were not expensive. C. If cups and saucers match well, they are a best pair even though cheap. D. After hearing what they said, the writer seemed to understand what a rich life was. 3. The writer left the muddy marks of little sandals on the floor for a while to________. A. show that she was a kindhearted lady. B. remind her that she shouldn't forget how rich she was. C. leave room for readers to think about what being rich is. D. prove that she had understood what meant being rich. 4. It can be inferred from the text that whether you are rich depends on________. A. how much money you have made. B. what attitude you have had towards life. C. the way you help others. D. your social relationship. B. Extracts (摘录) From Information Booklet For Car Ferry Passengers CAR DECKS Car drivers are advised to use the handbrake before leaving their cars, to lock all doors and to take with them all belongings that may be needed during the crossing. CURRENCY EXCHANGE We regret that there are no facilities aboard for the exchange of cheques of any kind but most European currencies together with Euro cards and various types of international credit cards are accepted for payment in restaurants, shops, cinemas, etc. and to carry out other transactions (交易) on board. PASSENGER FACILITIES ON BOARD The following are a small selection of those available. PROMENADE DECK(散步甲板): Here you can enjoy a pleasant stroll, go for a jog, or sit or lie back in the sunshine in adaptable reclining seats(躺椅). We would however suggest passengers that decks may be slippery in wet or freezing weather. VIEWING BRIDGE: This is situated below the Captain's Bridge and offers a view over the bow of the ship. The viewing bridge is reached from the promenade deck via the foremost stairway. A LA CARTE RESTAURANT: This serves the same breakfast buffet as the main dining room. Scandinavian(斯堪的纳维亚的) and international specialties are available at lunch and dinner times. No reservations required. DUTY-FREE SHOP: This is a supermarket offering Scandinavian and international goods, foodstuffs, spirits, tobacco goods, sweets etc. OPENING TIMES: The opening times of the various shops, restaurants and other facilities are shown on the relevant entrance doors as well as on the boards in the main halls on Decks 4. 5. Which of the following car ferry passengers might have trouble or difficulty on the ferry? A. A British standing on the viewing bridge below Captain's Bridge. B. An Australian taking with him all his belongings in the car. C. A Canadian with only banknotes from his own country.
D. A German going for a walk on promenade deck. 6. According to the information given, the promenade deck can be used for _____. A. exercise and relaxation B. enjoying the view over the sea C. taking exercise in all kinds of weather D. spending the night 7. Passengers to the A La Carte restaurant _______. A. can enjoy a buffet free of charge. B. needn’t reserve a place for lunch or dinner. C. can have the full menu whenever they like. D. can sit wherever they like when they come in. C. In a class this past December, after I wrote some directions on the board for students about their final examination, one young woman quickly took a picture of the board using her smart phone. When I looked in her direction, she apologized: ―Sorry. Was it wrong to take a picture?‖ ―I can’t read my own handwriting,‖ the young woman explained.―It’s best if I take a picture of your writing so I can understand the notes.‖ That remark started a class-wide conversation about taking a picture instead of taking notes. For those in the photo-taking camp, motivations extended beyond their inability to comprehend their own handwriting. Some took pictures of notes because they knew their phone was a safe place to store material. They might lose paper, they reasoned, but they wouldn’t lose their phones. Some took photos because they wanted to record exactly the manner in which I had noted information on the board. Others told me that during class they liked to be able to listen to the discussion attentively. Yet the use of cameras as note takers, though it may be convenient, does raise significant questions for the classroom. Is a picture an effective replacement for the process of note-taking? Instructors encourage students to take notes because the act of doing so is more than merely recording necessary information—it helps prepare the way for understanding. Encouraging students to take notes may be an old-fashioned instructional method, but just because a method has a long history doesn’t mean it’s out of date. Writing things down engages a student’s brain in listening, visual, and kinesthetic（触觉的）learning—a view supported by a longstanding research. The act of writing down information enables a person to begin committing it to memory, and to process and combine it, establishing the building blocks of learning new concepts. Taking a picture does indeed record the information, but it deletes some of the necessary mental engagement that taking notes employs. So can the two be equally effective? I’m not sure how to measure the effectiveness of either method. For now, I allow students to take notes however they see fit—handwritten or photographed—because I figure that some notes, no matter the method of note-taking, are better than none. 8. The woman apologized in the class because she_________. A. took a picture of the board B. missed the teachers’ directions C. had the bad handwriting D. disturbed other students’ learning
9. Students refuse to take notes by hand because__________. A. they are unable to take notes B. they are more likely to lose notes C. they are interested in using their phones D. they have a good memory of teachers’ instructions 10. According to the passage, taking notes by hand__________. A. requires students to think independently B. is unsuitable for students to learn new ideas C. helps students actively participate in learning D. proves to be an old and useless learning method 11. What might be the best title for this passage? A. A modern way of note-taking in class. B. Will note-taking by hand in class be replaced? C. An interesting thing happened in class. D. The importance of note-taking. D. At a primary school in a small town in the east of South Carolina, second-grade teachers Garneau and Lynne are assured that separating elementary-age boys and girls produces immediate academic improvement in both genders（性别） ． David Chadwell, South Carolina’s expert of single gender education says, ―Boys and girls learn, hear and respond to their surroundings differently．We can teach boys and girls based on what we now know．‖ Male and female eyes are not organized in the same way, he explains．The organization of the male eye makes it sensitive to motion and direction．―Boys understand the world as objects moving through space,‖ he says． The male eye is also drawn to cooler colors like silver and black． It’s no accident that boys tend to create pictures of moving objects instead of drawing the happy colorful family, like girls do in their class． The female eye, on the other hand, is drawn to warmer colors like red, yellow and orange．To attract girls, Chadwell says, the teacher doesn’t need to move as much as in boy’s class．Using descriptive phrases and lots of colors in presentations or on the blackboard gets their attention． Boys and girls also hear differently．―When someone speaks in a loud tone, girls understand it as yelling,‖ Chadwell says．―They think you’re mad and can shut down．‖ Girls are more sensitive to sounds．He advises girls’ teachers to watch the tone of their voices．Boys’ teachers should sound more forceful, even excited． A boy’s nervous system causes him to be more cautious when he is standing, moving, and the room temperature is around 69 degrees Fahrenheit．Stress in boys, he says, tends to increase blood flow to their brains, a process that helps them stay focused．Girls are more focused when seated in a warmer room around 75 degrees Fahrenheit．Girls also respond to stress differently．When exposed to threat and conflict, blood goes to their guts（肠道）, leaving them feeling nervous or anxious． These differences can be applied in the classroom, Chadwell adds．―Single gender programs are about making the best use of the learning．‖

Several reasons may account for the phenomenon. Firstly, with more and more vehicles running in the street, too much carbon dioxide is given off. What’s worse, trees and grasses are cut down to make room for factories, making it impossible for us to take in fresh air every day. Meanwhile, so
many skyscrapers also contribute to the temperature rise. As far as I’m concerned, we should attach great importance to the problem. If possible, we can walk to school or ride bikes. And the government is supposed to take effective measures. Only in this way can we live in a healthy environment.
