The other day, my sister and I were sitting in the restaurant, trying to have a conversation, but her children, four-year-old Willow and seven-year-old Luca, would not stop fighting. The arguments-over a fork, or who had more water in a glass-never stopped.
Then my sister reached into her handbag, produced two shiny iPads, and handed one to each child. Suddenly, the two were quite. They sat playing games and watching videos, and we continued with our conversation.
After our meal, as my sister stuffed the iPads back into her bag, she said, “I don’t want to give
them the iPads at the dinner table, but if they keep them occupied for an hour so we can eat in peace, I often just hand them over. I am afraid that it’s bad for them. I do worry that it makes them think it’s OK to use electronics at the dinner table in the future.”
Dr. Gary Small, director of the Longevity Center at the University of California, Los Angeles says that the brain is highly sensitive to stimuli（刺激物），like iPads and smartphone screen, and if people spend too much time on one technology, and less time interacting（互动）with people like parents at the dinner table, that could prevent the development of certain communication skills.
“Conversations with each other are the way children learn to have conversations with themselves, and learn how to be alone,” said Sherry Turkle, a professor of science, technology and society at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She fears that children who do not learn real interactions, which often have imperfections, will come to know a world where perfect, shiny screens give them a false sense of intimacy（亲密）without risk. However, they need to be able to gather themselves and know who they are. So someday they can form a relationship with another person without a panic of being alone. “If you don’t teach your children to be alone, they will only know how to be lonely,” she said.
4. What did Willow and Luca fight about?

Facial expressions carry meaning that is determined by situations and relationships. For example, in American culture (文化) the smile is in general an expression of pleasure. Yet it also has other uses.
A woman’s smile at a police officer does not carry the same mea ning as the smile she gives to a young child. A smile may show love or politeness. It can also hide true feelings. It often causes confusion (困惑) across cultures. For example, many people in Russia smiling at strangers in public to be unusual and even improper. Yet many Americans smile freely at strangers in public places (although this is less common in big cities). Some Russians believe that Americans smile in the wrong places; some Americans believe that Russians don’t smile enough. In Southeast Asian cu lture, a smile is frequently used to cover painful feelings. Vietnamese people may tell a sad story but end the story with a smile.
Our faces show emotions (情感), but we should not attempt to “read” people from another culture as we would “read” someone from our own culture. The fact that members of one culture do not express their emotions as openly as do members of another does not mean that they do not experience emotions. Rather, there are cultural differences in the amount of facial expressions permitted. For example, in public and in formal situations many Japanese do not show their emotions as freely as Americans do. When with friends, Japanese and Americans seem to show their emotions similarly.
It is difficult to generalize about Americans and facial expressiveness because of personal and cultural differences in the United States. People from certain cultural backgrounds in the United States seem to
be more facially expressive than others. The key is to try not to judge people whose ways of showing emotion are different. If we judge according to our own cultural habits, we may make the mistake of “reading” the other person incorrectly.
8. What does the smile usually mean in the U.S.?
9. The author mentions the smile of the Vietnamese to prove that smile can ___ .
A. show friendliness to strangers
B. be used to hide true feelings
C. be used in the wrong places
D. show personal habits
10. What should we do before attempting to “read” people?
A. Learn about their relations with others.
B. Understand their cultural backgrounds.
C. Find out about their past experience.
D. Figure out what they will do next.
11. What would be the best title for the test?
A. Cultural Differences
B. Smiles and Relationship
C. Facial Expressiveness
D. Habits and Emotions
Child abuse and child neglect are serious crimes．Some U.S．laws are designed to protect children from their very own parents．Recently, two parents who live in the state of Maryland, near Washington, D.C., were found guilty of "unsubstantiated neglect." (未经证实的疏忽)
What was their crime? The parents let their two children walk home together unsupervised （无人监管的）from a neighborhood park．The children are a 10-year old boy named Rafi and his 6-year old sister Dvora．The two siblings like to play at their neighborhood park．After playing, they walk home – by themselves．And “that is a problem”, says Maryland's child protective services agency．And this incident has restarted a debate in the U.S．about the amount of independence parents should give their children.
Some people object to courts telling parents how to raise their children．They also think children benefit from exploring the outside world without a lot of supervision．Rafi and Dvora's parents, Danielle and Alexander Meitiv, are both trained scientists．They defend “free-range parenting.” Free-range is usually a term used to describe farm animals that live uncaged．With parents, it means loosening control over your children．Danielle Meitiv explains．“The idea of free-range parenting is really that your children need the freedom to explore．They need to be alone, without parents. They learn to take risks. They learn to be independent.”
But opponents say this so called “free-range parenting” can put children in danger. They say children may not be able to safely navigate the world alone. They may not be able to cross the street safely. They may get lost. They could get hurt or, a parent’s worst nightmare, kidnapped.
The Meitiv parents say they slowly let their two children take walks by themselves. They first made sure Rafi and Dvora knew the area well. But on December 20, 2014, the two young Meitivs went farther than usual. They walked home from a park that is a little more than a kilometer away. Police officers stopped the children as they walked along a busy street. They drove the children home. What happened next came as a shock, says Alexander Meitiv, their father.
12．The underlined part “ this incident ” refers to the children’s ____________.
A．playing outside B．being treated badly
C．walking home alone D．committing serious crimes
13．In what sense are unsupervised children similar to uncaged animals?
A．They have difficulty finding their home.
B．They are free to explore the world.
C．They always depend on each other.
D．They are in the control of their parents.
14．Free-range parenting is not favored by those who think __________.
A．children are too young to take good care of themselves
B．parents should give their children much independence
C．family education is the most important for children
D．not all parents are well trained
15．We can infer from the text that _________.
A．Rafi and Dvora were very naughty
B．children are not expected to take risks
C．parents should loosen control over their children
D．the Meitivs didn’t neglect their children on purpose
Physical education plays a vital role in the students’ development and growth. According to recent medical studies, physical well-being of a student is directly related to his or her performance whether in class or in the office. 16
It’s a link to good health.
17 It’s only in physical edu cational classrooms that students learn the value of taking care of themselves through proper grooming, healthy eating and regular exercise.
Many doctors today agree that obesity is a serious health risk. Without any form of diet management and control with the numerous processed food students intake every day, a student’s health can easily be at risk to many diseases. Physical education in school is a preventive measure to teach students the value of regular exercise.
It promotes academic learning.
Physical health allows students to function better in classrooms. A good cardiovascular system developed from regular exercise promotes excellent blood and oxygen circulation. 19 This circulation produces longer attention span during classes allowing longer concentration and absorption.
It builds self-trust.
Students who are active in physical activities are more confident with themselves according to most social school studies. It’s probably because of the self-discipline and dedication to excel in a sport that brings out the best in students. In school, the physical education program introduces these sport activities to students. 20
It promotes a physically active lifestyle.
The purpose of physical education is to instill in students, at an early age, the value of
self-preservation and choosing a lifestyle that is good for both the mind and body.
A．The article will give you reasons to agree.
B．It is the best way to cure your illnesses.
C．The value of physical fitness can never be overstated.
D．It’s a prevent ive measure against disease.
E．They can make choices about which sport they get involved in.
F．Some students prefer to abandon such activities.
G. This means more nutrients circulate throughout the body.
When I began my high school years, I was quite interested in biology. I read 21 books of my father’s about animals, and I learned so much about such things that I was very 22 with myself.

I knew I was 25 , so I was looking forward to the teacher 26 I was right. My friends were eager for an opposite answer. We asked her 27 the whale was a mammal. “No, the whale is a fish,” she said without a moment’s28 .
You could have knocked me over with a feather. My 29 was hurt because I lost the argument, but that wasn’t the main reason why I was too30 to speak. I still knew I was right, which __31 the teacher was wrong. Not only was she wrong, 32 she was completely ignorant about something I thought

I have met many teachers since I begin my schooling. Of all my teachers, Mrs. Green is the one who impresses me most. Though she is 50, she looks very young at her age. Comparing with other teachers, Mrs. Green pays more attention to her way of teaching. She tries various ways to make her class lively and interestingly. In her opinion, we will not only know ‘what’ but also understand ‘why’. So instead of giving us answer immediately, she encourages us to think carefully every time when she puts forward questions. With her help, we have learned how to anal yze and settled problems. What the amazing world of ‘why’ she leads us! She is such a learned person that we all admire him very much.

I’m sorry to hear that you feel rather nervous whenever you’re taking any important exam. Most of us have such bad times, so don’t worry too much about it. I’d like to offer you some useful tips.
First, it’s important to have a right attitude towards exams. They help you check how you are getting along with your studies, so the results are not the most important. If you study hard and make careful plans for every exam, you can be more confident. Second, getting enough sleep can make you energetic so that you can perform well in an exam. Therefore, you should not stay up too late. Third, you can do some outdoor exercises to keep yourself relaxed before an exam. Finally, you may ask your parents, teachers and friends for help. Having a conversation with others will also make you feel more relaxed.
I hope you will find my suggestions helpful.
A few days before my going away, my father handed me a piece of paper. Surprised, I took the paper to my room. There were 29 mottos. The first few were－ "Keep change in your pocket." "Don't pick up strange girls. You may be sorry." "Don't climb mountains. You might get hurt."
It was always that way with Dad. I remembered Dad driving us to school, giving the same lecture every morning, "Boys, you're getting the tools－of your trade. Get them now or you'll be like a carpenter (木匠) without his tools－you won't be able to make a living." But I daydreamed my way through classes. In the schoolyard, I was in a lot of fights.
However, Dad's most important lessons were the ones he never expressed in words. He worked hard to pay for everything we needed. He took care of my mother's family-her sister Virgiebelle and Virgiebelle's daughter Dodie.
My father's world was filled with big talkers. They'd often come to my house. Many had worked for my father and were looking forward to borrowing money from him. Dad was an easy touch.
Once Dad wrote to our mother, "When I came home last night, Anna's little girl was very interested in Norman's bicycle, and I gave it to her." Anna was my mother's longtime helper. Dad bought me another in place of that.
When Frank got out of prison, Dad took him in. Dad was kind-hearted but no fool. After a few months, when Frank had made no progress in getting a job, Dad checked the basement bar (地窖). Bottles had been replaced empty or watered. Frank was soon gone from our life. A year later he was wanted for stealing.
I now know things I didn't know when my father was alive. I remember my father's final lesson. So when my son says, "Dad, can we talk?" I put down my book and say, "Sure."
21. The writer's father wanted him to ________.
A. save up money for his old age

Sydney is Australia’s most exciting city. The history of Australia begins here. In 1788 Captain Arthur Phillips arrived in Sydney with 11 ships and 1,024 passengers (including 770 prisoners) from Britain. Today there are 2.5 million people in Sydney. It is the biggest city in Australia, and one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
There are over 20 fine beaches close to Sydney. Its warm summer and cool winter have made it a favorite city for immigrants(移民) from overseas. There are three things that make Sydney famous- its beautiful harbor, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House.
But there are many more interesting things in Sydney: beautiful shops and restaurants, for example, rows of interesting old houses built everywhere in the 19th century. Summer or winter, day or night, Sydney is an outdoor city.
Some Americans think it is very British. Some British visitors think it is like America. There is some truth in both these opinions, because Sydney takes from both the Old World- Europe, and the New World- America, and makes itself into something that is neither British nor American but truly Australian.

Here are a few tips to ensure a safe and pleasant trip.
●Read up on what The State Department has to say. The State Department does an excellent job of watching out for our safety and protecting us in our travels by providing Travel Warnings Public Announcements and Consular(领事的) Information Sheets for every country in the world. Be sure to check in when planning your trip, and before you leave.
●Remember that you are a guest in a different country. Do your best to mix in with the locals by taking note of their talk and behavior. Buy or borrow a book from the library that teaches you about the local customs and beliefs.
●Try to stay in areas where there are lots of people and avoid wandering around new places where there is the possibility of getting lost.
●Feel free to make friends with locals, but remember that they are still strangers and you do not know them. Be careful of information that you share- especially about where you are staying.
●Make a copy of your passport and inform the US Embassy (大使馆) in the country you will be visiting before you leave. Should you come into any danger, the US Embassy is there to help and protect you. Having proper proof of identity will help ensure a safe and speedy return home.

●39 As part of a healthy diet, eat more fruits and vegetables each day. Vitamins C and E help protect eyesight and promote eye health.
●Practice safe wear and care of contact lenses (隐形眼镜).Many Americans use contact lenses to improve their eyesight.

I am Li Hua, and I am so excited now, because I will go travelling with friends after the mid-term exam. We plan to go to visit Chongqing, for it is very near our place.

The second period starts when you reach the age of 13. First, girls grow faster than boys, then boys catch up and grow faster and stronger.

When you reach the age of nine, your bones starts to grow rapidly, and will keep growing until you reach your full height (高度).

A Letter to Editor of TV Weekly
I read Alison Burnham’s review of When we were 12, and I do not agree with her. I thought the programme was wonderful . I found the old news pictures really interesting . They helped to bring to life the stories the people were telling.
The programme reminds me of many things from my own childhood. For example, one day when I was about five, I was going to school on the bus by myself (this was the late 1960s). My mother had given me exactly the right money for a return ticket. I held out my hand with the money in it — one big coin on top of one little coin. The bus conductor took the big top coin only and she gave me a ticket, but it was a pink one for a single journey. I needed a white one for a return journey, but I was too frightened to say anything. When school finished for the day, I couldn’t catch the bus home ?I had to walk. As a grown-up, whenever II’ve been in a situation where I need to say something or take some action, this early memory of my bus ride comes back to me, and I’m able to take control of the situation.
I would like to say to the director, Bret Chrysler, carry on making this kind of programme. Too much TV these days is quiz shows and so called “reality programmes”. I appreciate the human story that can make me laugh and cry.
60. What is Chris Daniels’ purpose of writing this letter?
A. To persuade Bret Chrysler to turn away from quiz shows.
B. To express his appreciation of the programme.
C. To entertain other readers with old news pictures.
D. To have his story told on the programme.
61. According to the passage, Chris Daniels had to walk home because .
A. he missed the bus home
B. he had lost his bus ticket
C. he didn’t like big crowds
D. he hadn’t got a return t icket
62. What does Chris Daniels now think about his experience on the bus?
A. He should have told the conductor then.
B. He should have been well treated.
C. He regrets going to school alone.
D. He wishes it hadn’t happened.
Have you ever been to a national park like Yellowstone, Yosemite or Glacier? How about the moon?
That’s a trick question, of course. First of all, if you’re a kid, I’m absolutely certain you’ve never been to the moon. After all, only a dozen grown-ups have ever wal ked on the moon’s surface. And the last one did it in 1972. Second, the moon is not a national park. But if two US women get their way, it might become one. Eddie Johnson and Donna Edwards have introduced a bill （法案）that would create the Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Historic Park.
Why should a park be on the moon? After all, you can’t just get into a car and drive there on vacation. But in the not-so-distant future, you might be able to fly there. Private(私人的) companies are working on ways to transport tourists to the moon. And there are concerns that some careless visitors might mess up some of the historic sites up there - sites such as the astronauts’ footprints and other things they left behind.
Some people think the bill is a good idea. “It’s a good idea because the moon’s environment is very fragile(易损的),” said David Paige, a scientist. “Any disturbance to the soil there will last for millions of years.”
But others think it’s kind of silly. For one thing, how are you going to make sure that the moon’s historic sites are truly protected? After all, there are no park rangers （国家公园管理员）to enforce the law up there. And there’s another big problem: the moon does not belong to the United States - or any other country, for that mater. So in order for the United States to create a national park on the moon, it would need to get permission from lots of other countries. And that might not be as simple as it might sound.
Still, Johnson doesn’t consider her bill frivolous. “I don’t think that there is anything far-fetched about protecting and preserving such items and such a place,” she said.
63.What is the function of the two questions asked in the first paragraph?
A. To help develop readers’ interest in national parks.
B. To remind readers to care for the technology
