It was her giggling
(
咯咯的笑
)
that drew my attention. Note taking really wasn’t all that
funny.


Walking over to the offender, I asked for the

11

. Frozen, she refused to give it to me. I
waited, all attention in the classroom on th
e quiet

12

between teacher and student. When
she finally

13

it over, she whispered, “Okay, but I didn’t draw it.”


It was a hand
-
drawn

14

of me, teeth blackened and the words “I’m stupid” coming out
of my mouth.



I managed to fold it up calmly. My mind,

15

, was working angrily as I struggled not to

16

. I figured I knew the two most likely candidates for drawing the picture. It would do them
some

17

to teach them a lesson, and maybe it was high time that
I did it!


Thankfully, I was able to keep myself

18

.


When there were about six minutes remaining, I showed the class the picture. They were all
silent as I told them how

19

this was for me. I told them there must be a reason

20

and
now was their

chance to write down anything they needed to tell me. Then I let them write
silently while I sniffed in the back of the classroom.



As I

21

the notes later, many of them said something like, “I’ve got nothing against you.”
or “I’m sorry you were hurt.
” Some kids said, “We’re

22

of you.” But two notes, from the girls
who I

23

were behind the picture, had a list of issues. I was too

24

, too strict…


Reading those notes, I realized that over the course of this year, instead of

25

my
students, I
had begun commanding them to

26

. Where I thought I was driving them to
success, I was

27


driving them away.


I had some apologies to make. But the next day in the classroom, one boy and one girl each
handed me a card. The one

28

by all the boys e
xpressed sincere regret for the ugly joke. The
one from the girls asked for

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C、D)中选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上
将该项涂黑。

A

Everyone knows about straight
-
A students. We see them frequently in TV situation
comedies
and in movies like Revenge
(
报复
)
of the Nerds. They get high grades, all right, but only by
becoming dull laborers, their noses always stuck in a book. They are not good at social
communication and look clumsy while doing sports.






How, then, do
we account for Domenica Roman or Paul Melendres?

Roman is on the tennis
team at Fairmont Senior High School. She also sings in the choral group, serves on the student
council and is a member of the mathematics society. For two years she has maintained A’s
in
every subject. Melendres, a freshman at the University of New Mexico, was student
-
body
president at Valley High School in Albuquerque. He played soccer and basketball well, exhibited
at the science fair, and meanwhile worked as a reporter on a local tel
evision station. Being a
speech giver at the graduation ceremony, he achieved straight A’s in his regular classes, plus
bonus points for A’s in two college
-
level courses.



How do super
-
achievers like Roman and Melendres do it? Brains aren’t the only an
swer. “Top
grades don’t always go to the brightest students,” declares Herbert Walberg, a professor of
education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who has conducted major studies on
super
-
achieving students. “Knowing how to make the most of your in
nate
(
天生的
)
abilities
counts for more. Much more.”







In fact, Walberg says, students with high IQ sometimes don’t do as well as classmates with
lower IQ. For them, learning comes too easily and they never find out how to get down.







Hard work isn’t t
he whole story, either. “It’s not how long you sit there with the books open,”
said one of the many
-
A students we interviewed. “It’s what you do while you’re sitting.” Indeed,
some of these students actually put in fewer hours of homework time than their l
ower
-
scoring
classmates.







The kids at the top of the class get there by mastering a few basic techniques that others can
readily learn.

31. What can we conclude from the first paragraph?



A. Most TV programs and films are about straight
-
A students.



B. People have unfavorable impression on straight
-
A students.



C. Everyone knows about straight
-
A students from TV or films.



D. Straight
-
A students are well admired by people in society.

32. Some students become super
-
achievers mainly because
________
.



A. they are born cleverer than others



B. they work longer hours at study



C. they make full use of their abilities



D. they know the shortcut to success

33. What will be talked about

after the last paragraph?



A. The interviews with more students.



B. The role IQ plays in learning well.



C. The techniques to be better learners.


D. The achievements top students make.

34. What can we infer from the passage?



A. IQ is more impor
tant than hard work in study.



B. The brightest students can never get low grades.



C. Top students certainly achieve all
-
around developments.



D. Students with average IQ can become super
-
achievers.

On 8
th

March this year, events marking International Women’s Day (IWD) were held i
n many
countries around the world. In most countries the events have a political tone: they tend
to
celebrate the advances women have made towards economic, social and political equality with
men, and to press for change in those areas of life where there is still progress to be made.

In other countries, meanwhile, 8
th

March is traditionally more abo
ut expressing an
appreciation of women: it is a day on which men give presents to their wives, girlfriends and
mothers, and it therefore has some similarities with St Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.

Back in 1911, the first IWD events in Austria, Denmark,

Germany and Switzerland were
certainly political. They were protests by women against forms of

gender

discrimination that
would now be unthinkable in most parts of the world: almost nowhere were women allowed to
vote, and Finland was the only country with

any female members of a national parliament. The
general expectation worldwide, across different continents and cultures, was that women would
spend their lives largely in the home, devoting themselves to looking after their husbands and
children. The rat
e of women who had paid employment was far lower than today, and when
women did go out to work they typically earned very little, meaning they were economically
dependent on men.

A century later, gender inequality in employment

particularly pay inequality

is still one of
the hottest issues IWD tries to draw attention to: it remains common, of course, for women to
earn less than men for doing exactly the same job.

Limited educational opportunities (there are many countries in which girls generally stay
few
er years in school than boys) and domestic violence towards women have also been
highlighted by events surrounding IWD in recent years.

And yet, as the IWD website notes,

________
. As just one example, to return to the issue of
women elected to office, the

change over the last hundred years has been significant. Since 1911,
when the small group of women in the Finnish parliament (nineteen of them, to be exact) were
the only females in public office worldwide, the governments of more than fifty different
cou
ntries h
ave been led by women. In 2011, at least one country in every continent has a female
leader, including high
-
profile examples such as Brazil (Dilma Rousseff), Germany (Angela Merkel)
and Australia (Julia Gillard).

44. According to the passage, which

of the following is true
?

A. 100 years ago, women were not allowed to work outside.

B.
IWD is equal to St Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day in some countries.

C. Finland was the first country with female employment.


D. Pay inequality was once a hot issu
e in
IWD.

45. Which of the following is the missing sentence in the first line of the last paragraph?


A. distinctive
differences
do exist between men and women


B. the achievements are beyond people’s expectations

C. there’s still a long way to go to
achieve the set goals

D. alongside the ‘negatives’ there are plenty of ‘positives’

46. We can conclude from the passage that
________
.


A.

the progress in gaining equality in the last century seems to be too slow


B. the concept of equal pay for equal work

is completely accepted in practice


C. much has been achieved in gender equality, but still there is space for improvement


D.
one or two female leaders can’t stand for women’s social status on the whole

I’m telling you,

this is going to be th
e biggest development in animal

)

since Hayes pioneered the field way back in 2014.

Everybody’s
going to want a piece of my discovery!

Everyone!

Even United States of Earth Defense!

I’m going
to be the richest man alive!

I can see you don’t share my excitement yet. Just wait, old friend. Accompany me to my lab,
and we will see who has the last laugh. You’ll be begging me to take you on as a lab assistant
after I...Oh, here we are. You first, my good man. You see, I had alr
eady come up with the perfect
cybernetic engine, able to copy any life form. The question was, which creature would be the
best show of my discovery? I’ve used a life form nobody’s considered for cybernetics. It is
powerful, graceful, intelligent, and best

of all people love it. I chose the tiger!

Go on, have a glance! Ha! Don’t look so shocked, Johnson. I leave it powered down when I’m
not testing it. It is rather great, though. Yes, all the latest technology, including claws

uts through steel like its wet cardboard. The process that I
used to get its mind in the computer will be enough to ensure me fame and fortune.

Huh? It did move, didn’t it? I guess I left it on yesterday. No, don’t look so nervous

I can shut

off its main power with this remote
(
遥控器
)
right here. Nothing to worry about. I really don’t
think it’s regarding you as a meal. Be reasonable, old...Oh, God! Johnson! The remote, where is it?
Where?!

Ah, there we go! Too late to save Johnson, though. What
a pity. Better safe than sorry. There!
God, what a mess. Even worse, I can’t call the police now; the bad publicity would overshadow
my breakthrough, and certainly frighten the investors. I’ve got to get rid of the body secretly,
somehow. I could bury it,
but I might be seen. I could burn it, but the smoke would be very
doubtful. What to do?

What to...

What’s the author’s attitude towards his invention?

Six Ways to Improve Reading Comprehension

Help your child keep what he reads

a crucial skill
,

especially as he gets older and needs to
gain important information from textbooks.

1
.

Have him read aloud. This forces him to go slower
,

whic
h gives him more time to process
what he reads. Plus
,

he’s not only seeing the words
,

he’s hearing them
,

too.

2
.
Provide the right kinds of books. Make sure your child gets lots of practice reading books
that aren’t too hard. He should recognize at least 9
0 percent of the words without any help.
Stopping any more often than that to figure out a word makes it tough for him to focus on the
overall meaning of the story.


3
.
________
.

To gain meaning from text
,

your child needs to read quickly and smoothly

a
sk
ill known as fluency. Rereading familiar
,

simple books gives your child practice at decoding
words quickly
,

so he’ll become more fluent.

4
.
Talk to the teacher. If your child is
having great trouble with

comprehension
,

he may need
more help with his
reading

for example
,

building his vocabulary or practicing phonics skills.

5
.
Supplement class reading. If his class is studying a particular theme
,

look for easy
to
read
books or magazines on the topic. Some prior knowledge will help him get better prepar
ed and
make his way through tougher classroom texts.

6
.
Talk about what he’s reading. This “verbal processing” helps him remember and think
through the themes of the book. Ask questions before
,

during
,

and after a reading session. For
example
:

•Before
:

“Wh
at interests you in this book? What doesn’t? ”

•During
:
“What’s going on in the book? Is it turning out the way you thought it would? ”

•After
:
“Can you summarize the book? What did you like about it? ”


56
.
Fill in the blank with a proper topic for the th
ird suggestion.

(Please answer within 10 words.)

Which sentence in the passage can replace the following sentence?

What has been learned in advance can assist him in understanding what
he will learn in his
lessons.
