And when he tried to tell me a code to put into my phone, I had to keep asking him to repeat it more slowly again and again. 41 he lost his patience and shouted at me: “Just give me the phone!” I was shocked. People couldn?t be 42 to repeat themselves, so they kept trying to do things for me that I was 43 to finish by myself. I lost control, feeling 44 and awkward. Being deaf for the day was extraordinarily 45 . I had to work so hard to “ 46 ” with my eyes, get people?s attention and use my other 47 to make up for my lack of hearing.

第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分）
阅读下列短文，从每篇短文后所给各题的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡 上将该项涂黑。 A Coach Mike Huff doesn?t just build basketball programs and basketball teams. Coach Huff teaches life lessons to build good people. Coach Huff has not just been a great coach but he?s been a helpful, caring, and generous mentor (导师). However, I?m not the only one who has gotten to gain the benefits of knowing a great man and basketball coach like Coach Huff. To learn more about ways he?s been a positive influence on others' lives, I talked to his son, one of his former players, and Coach Huff himself. My friend Rashaad once said, “Coach Huff taught me responsibility and leadership. You need to own up to your mistakes, whether they happen in the classroom, locker room, or on the court. He taught me that to be a man you need to admit that you mucked up. ” Coach Huff has been teaching basketball and life lessons to kids ever since he started coaching. When I asked Rashaad what his dream was, he said he wanted to do whatever he could to stay around sports. Coach Huff has helped him do that by always inviting Rashaad to be a counselor at the basketball camps run by Coach Huff. When I asked Rashaad why he wanted to coach, he told me that he loves making guys better players and better people. Rashaad also said that he likes being a point of guidance to young kids who are having trouble. To me, it sounds like Rashaad?s dream is to be Coach Huff. I'd now like to talk about Coach Huff as a basketball coach. Ever since 1983, he?s coached everything from middle school to JV college worldwide. He?s even coached AAU. He?s tasted success in all kinds of forms. According to his son, Jay Huff, it?s because “His players can?t help but like his coaching style. He works you hard，but doesn?t overwork you. He teaches you well and lets your own will to win take you the rest of the way.” Through basketball, Coach Huff has built strong relationships and become a mentor to many young men. Anyone who has been taught by Coach Huff, including myself, will know that his great coaching skills translate into him being a great life coach. Rashaad said, “He always knows the right things to say. If you are willing to let him into your life just a little, he becomes someone you can always talk to.” Coach Huff creates memorable moments on and off the court with his players. 51. It can be learned from the first paragraph that Mike Huff _____ . A. is the author?s father B. has touched many people?s lives C. has started many basketball programs D. is a basketball coach as well as a professor 52. The underlined phrase “mucked up” in the second paragraph probably means “______”. A. made a mess B. didn't care at all C. needed some help D. were strong-minded 53. Why did Rashaad want to become a coach? A. His dream was to be Coach Huff. B. He wanted to follow Coach Huff?s advice. C. He liked playing and teaching basketball very much. D. He hoped to offer children help in basketball and in life. 54. According to Jay Huff?s words in the third paragraph, Coach Huff?s players speak highly of Huff?s _____ . A. lifestyle B. hard work C. way of coaching D. success in different fields B A blood test that can predict whether someone may attempt suicide has been developed by scientists in a breakthrough which could prevent hundreds of deaths. American researchers have found that variations in a single gene can be used to predict if someone is likely to take their own life. Researchers at John Hopkins University, in Baltimore, Maryland, found that the gene SKA2 stopped functioning correctly in people at risk of suicide. The SKA2 gene is found in the prefrontal cortex (前额
【英语试卷 第 4 页 （共 9 页）】 ? 15—08—10C ?
皮层)of the brain, and is involved in preventing negative thoughts and controlling abnormal behavior. If there isn?t enough SKA2, or it is changed in some way, the body cannot control levels of cortisol (皮质醇). Previous research has shown that people who attempt suicide or who take their own lives have large amounts of cortisol in their systems. A test could allow doctors or psychologists to place patients on “suicide watch” and disable their access to drugs or equipment which they could use to end their own life. The research was reported in The American Journal of Psychology. “We need to study this in a larger sample but we believe that we might be able to monitor the blood to identify those at risk of suicide. After all, suicide is a major preventable public health problem, but we have been stymied in our prevention efforts because we have no steady way to predict those who are at increased risk of killing themselves,” says study leader Dr Zachary Kaminsky, an assistant professor of psychological and behavioral sciences. “With a test like ours, we may be able to cut down suicide rates by identifying those people and intervening early enough to head off a catastrophe.” The blood test managed to predict those with the most severe risk of suicide with 90 per cent accuracy. They could also spot if someone had already attempted suicide with 96 per cent accuracy, simply by looking at the levels of SKA2. 55. What's the purpose of the blood test? A. To predict people?s characters. B. To help cure those who lack SKA2. C. To see whether people get infected by illness. D. To predict whether someone may attempt suicide. 56. According to the text, those who attempt suicide _____ . A. have too much SKA2 B. have variations in the gene SKA2 C. have fewer abnormal behaviors than others D. have fewer amounts of cortisol in their systems 57. The underlined word “stymied” in Paragraph 3 probably means “_____”. A. taken away B. held back C. cheered up D. turned down 58. What is the author?s attitude towards the blood test research? A. Objective. B. Passive. C. Cautious. D. Doubtful. C Forget milky drinks, hot water bottles or curling up with a good book. The real secret to a good night?s sleep may be where you sit at work. Researchers found that workers forced to toil in windowless rooms had a poorer quality of life and more erratic (不稳定的)sleep patterns than those with access to daylight. The findings, published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, suggest better designed offices could improve the physical and mental health of workers. “We suggest that architectural design of office environments should place more emphasis on sufficient daylight exposure for workers in order to promote health and well-being,” said Dr Ivy Cheung of the Department of Neurology, Northwestern University, Chicago. “Office workers with more light exposure at the work place also tended to have better sleep quality, more physical activity and a better quality of life.” One in three Britons suffers from poor sleep, with stress，computers and taking work home often blamed for the lack of quality sleep. However, the cost of all those sleepless nights is more than just bad moods and a lack of focus. Regular poor sleep raises the risk of serious medical conditions like obesity (肥胖), heart and diabetes and can even shorten life expectancy. Researchers recruited 49 office employees, just over half of whom spent the day in mostly windowless environments, while the rest enjoyed frequent exposure to daylight through windows. Each one was quizzed on sleeping patterns, physical activity and general lifestyle. The results showed those with the most work-time light exposure slept an average of 46 minutes more per night than their light-deprived colleagues. They also scored better on a sleep quality basis and reported fewer night-time disturbances. Scientists also found they were more likely to exercise, having got a good night?s sleep. Independent sleep expert Dr Neil Stanley said the body needs exposure to daylight to keep its sleeping patterns on track. “Light is essentially the thing that tells our bodies to be awake and dark tells them to go to sleep.
【英语试卷 第 5 页 （共 9 页）】 ? 15—08—10C ?
The problem with office lighting is that it is not made up of ?blue? light , which is the wavelength of light you get from the sun and which controls your body clock. So you could have a very well lit office but it does not have the same effect because it's artificial and does not contain blue light.” 59. What is the text mainly about? A. Poor sleep is harmful for health. B. More and more people have poor sleep. C. People should blame the office for their poor sleep. D. Having a very well lit office is a good way to improve sleep quality. 60. According to Paragraph 3, people with poor sleep tend to blame the following EXCEPT A. stress B. poor health C. computers D.extra work 61. According to the text, we can infer that if people sleep well, they will _____ . A. have the same sleep pattern B. enjoy less sunlight C. be more likely to do exercises D. have more friends 62. Where does this text probably come from? A. A health report B. A personal interview. C. A magazine review. D.A workplace investigation. D The honorable 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary contains about 700,000 words, but the editors recently realized they were missing one: Doh! It's an idiom used by the cartoon character Homer Simpson to show regret and is one of some 250 entries being added today to the dictionary, which is widely considered the leading dictionary on the English language. “Doh” is now defined as “Expressing frustration at the realization that things have turned out badly or not as planned, or that one has just said or done something foolish,” according to the new entry in the dictionary. The Simpsons only popularized the term; it was actually used extensively in the 1950s, the OED found. Although it is often spelled “D'oh”, the dictionary chose to leave out the apostrophe (撇号). Other newcomers to the dictionary include “cheesy”, which means second-rate or inferior; “six-pack”, meaning strong abdominal muscles (腹肌), and “Bollywood”, which refers to the Hindi film industry based in Bombay, India. “We'll have terms from various fields or sources,” says Jesse Sheidlower, who is head of the project for North America. The OED?s staff of 50 editors has been studying popular culture looking for new words and usages that deserve an entry, as part of its 8-year-old $ 55 million updating project. It is the first complete revision of the dictionary since it was completed in 1928. “The principle we get new entries is to have readers look around the world for things that seem new or significant,” says John Simpson, chief editor of the OED. Contributors have included a Nobel prize winner and a patient at a madhouse, among thousands of others. “We have about 200,000 example sentences coming into the department each year. ” Simpson (John，not Homer) and his colleagues cut that list down to the few that seem to have gotten a solid evidence in popular usage. He says his job also gives him an excuse to watch a lot of action films and soap operas to look for more new terms. “Many terms are much older than you think they are， ” says Sheidlower. “Phat”, for example， makes its first appearance in the OED today as a slang term meaning cool. But it has been African-American slang since at least the 1960s, OED researchers found. The word even appeared with its present meaning in Time magazine in 1963. The dictionary contains some surprises for people who think they are using the latest words. 63. Which of the following statement is NOT true about the word “Doh”？ A. It was originated by the cartoon character Homer Simpson. B. The OED keeps its original meaning but changes its original spelling. C. Its popularity returned with the appearance of the Simpsons.
【英语试卷 第 6 页 （共 9 页）】 ? 15—08—10C ?
D. The OED?s definition of it makes no reference to the Simpsons. 64. The 250 new entries added to the dictionary are taken from ____ . A. cartoon characters B. entertainment industry C. popular culture D. non-professional terms 65. John Simpson and his colleagues cut down on the number of new words based on the principle of _____ . A. economy B. originality C. significance D. popularity 66. According to the last paragraph, what surprises will the dictionary bring to people? A. There will be the newest and most popular words in the dictionary. B. People will realize they are not as fashionable as they imagine. C. There will be helpful words for those who want to follow the fashion. D. People will realize they are not as knowledgeable as they think. E From the moment a child is born, his parents spend time and money helping him be excellent. They read to him every night, teach colors and numbers early, and supervise his homework once he enters school. They know that a good education is important to his success. But what about emotional intelligence? Emotional intelligence has been linked to excellence, but can it be taught? Donna Housman, PhD, a clinical psychologist and the founder of the Beginnings School in Massachusetts, says it can. Social-emotional learning (SEL), which she says improves emotional intelligence， is the foundation of her school?s program. “What we have uncovered from research and nearly 30 years of introducing and incorporating (并入)the building blocks of emotional intelligence into our course is that when children are able to become aware of their emotions and those of others and learn how to manage their emotions more constructively and effectively, they are better able to attend and focus on learning,” she says. An emotionally intelligent child can control his impulses (冲动)，so he?s less likely to get angry. An emotionally intelligent child is resilient (适应力强的). He can manage life?s ups and downs and care for and protect his emotions. He also knows how to read people?s social cues (暗示). Housman says social-emotional learning creates the “building blocks” children need to develop their emotional intelligence. These building blocks include the ability to recognize emotions and identify the ones they're feeling, an awareness of how to connect feelings to behaviors, and the ability to appropriately express emotions and control their feelings. The Resolving Conflict Creatively Project is a long-running program in more than 400 US schools that teaches K-8 students ways to deal with conflict and other social skills. A report on the project?s impact at four New York City school districts showed that teachers observed 71 percent less physical violence in their classrooms and 66 percent fewer incidents of teasing and offending after carrying out the program. Another report showed that in Atlanta schools that adopted the project, student violence went down, self-respect went up, and fewer students dropped out or were suspended (休学). Both studies showed students were better able to accept differences among their fellow students and use proper ways to deal with conflict in academic and nonacademic situations. Although some educators argue against carrying out this type of the programming because it takes valuable time away from main academic materials the findings suggest that SEL programming not only does not detract (降低)from academic performance but actually increases students' performance on standardized tests and grades. 67. Which of the following would Donna Housman agree with? A. Emotional intelligence has been linked to good parenting. B. Building blocks are increasingly critical to one?s success. C. Students can deal with emotions wisely after getting trained. D. Focusing on learning contributes good emotional intelligence. 68. What does the author stress most in the third paragraph? A. The importance of emotional intelligence. B. Suggestions on making progress in SEL C. Patience?s role in bringing good results. D. Ways of controlling one?s emotions.

69. We can learn that the Resolving Conflict Creatively Project ____ . A. lasts nearly 30 years B. aims at academic performance C. does good to both the teachers and K-8 students D. reduces bad behaviors at school after schools? using it 70. Why do some educators argue against the SEL program? A. They consider it has nothing to do with students' academic performance. B. They think it takes up the precious time intended for key courses. C. The SEL programme emphasises students' academic performance. D. They have a more advanced approach.
