12. Summer is finally here for most of us. Sadly, summer is not so pleasant to people in a bit less lucky places, where air conditioning（空调）is not easy to get for most of them.
But as a saying goes, where there is a will, there is a way, especially for those who like doing it
yourself（DIY）. A young man from Bangladesh（孟加拉国）designed an air conditioning system called the Eco Cooler, one that does not require power, and is made of the world’s most common waste—plastic bottles.
The Eco Cooler is super simple to build—no special engineering skills are required. First, to fix it,
a window should be taken away and replaced（替代）by it. Second, a board should be cut into the size of a window. Some bottle—neck sized holes should then be cut onto the board. Then, the funnel—shaped（漏斗状）bottlenecks, cut from the plastic bottles, should be put into the holes. The next step is to fix the design onto the window frame（框）with the wider side facing outwards. And this is it.
The Eco Cooler then works by catching the winds and sending them inside the building. It can reduce the temperature of a room by as much as 5°C—a big difference when looking at comfortable 25°C compared to uncomfortable 30°C.
The idea of the inventor, Ashis Paul, was to show his great product to as many People as possible. For this purpose, he received help from some groups of volunteers. Together, they offered to help local people build and fix the units, as well as teach them how to make them themselves.
Yes, the Eco Cooler is not a super high—tech air conditioning system, but it is one that can make a
( B)When building the Eco Cooler, we should pay special attention to .

( D)What’s the best title of this passage？
A. DIY air conditioning made from plastic bottles

13. How to investigate
?Decide on a scientific problem to investigate
For example, a student named Mary has decided to research into how quickly sugar dissolves（溶解）in water.
?Write down your hypothesis
You may already have an idea of what you expect to happen in your investigation. This idea is called your hypothesis. It may not be right! It is just an idea, though it may be based on work in science which you have done before. The aim of your investigation is to test your idea.
?Decide what variables（变量）you are dealing with
Things like temperature, size, weight, and colour are called variables. Variables are things you can
In your investigation, you have to decide what the variables are, which ones you
will keep fixed, and which you will change.
You need to change just one variable at a time. If lots of variables change at once. it won’t be a good test.
?Decide what equipment you need, and in what order you will do things
?Prepare tables for your results
②Getting your evidence（数据）

14. We wake up very early to go to school, maybe even earlier to meet with a teacher, complete our extracurricular（课程以外的）activities, come home to have a quick dinner, talk for eight minutes with our parents and do homework until we fall asleep. But then we remember. We have to look at the American College Test（ACT）exercises one more time. Half asleep, we run downstairs to get the ACT book, and start studying. After this we finally get to turn off the lights and drift away to sleep. And then six hours later, we do it all over again.
In my health class, my teacher told us that teenagers need at least eight to nine hours of sleep each night. The sad truth is, with so much to do every day, high school students cannot keep to this sleep schedule（安排）.
Let me ask you all a question：Doesn’t it seem more humane（人道的）to give a teenager perhaps two hours of homework each night？This would allow us to have the eight to nine hours of much needed sleep. Or does it seem better to pile students with five hours of work a night？It leaves us very little time to relax, therefore reducing the time that we can sleep.
In my opinion. the present structure（结构）of the junior year of high school doesn’t work well. Junior year of high school is a time for growth. By this time many students have the ability to think creatively, and solve challenging problems. Homework is important for a student’s growth. But do we really need to spend countless hours a night doing it？Too much homework can only lead to too little sleep and too low an ability. I do think it is time to change the structure, so that we sleep at home, and learn at school.
( A)In the first paragraph the writer gives .
A. a picture of the present daily life of high school students
B. an example of an ideal daily life of high school students
C. a reason for high school students to live a busy daily school life
D. a suggestion of what high school students should do to pass ACT
( D)From the last paragraph we know that the writer thinks .
A. Junior year of high school is the most important growth period
B. challenging problems are needed for a teenager’s growth
C. the ability to think has nothing to do with homework
D. the present structure leads to students often sleeping in class
( C)Why does the writer write this article？
A. To prove the role of enough sleep in teenagers’ growth.
B. To complain about the problems in the system of the ACT.
C. To ask for a change for less homework and more sleep.
D. To discuss the relationship between sleep and homework.
15. After a while attention to Tom ended, and the usual school murmur（嗡嗡读书声）rose upon the boring air once more. Now the boy began to steal secret glances（偷看）at the girl. She noticed it, made a face at him and gave him the back of her head for the space of a minute. When she slowly faced around again, an apple lay before her. She pushed it away. Tom gently put it back. She pushed it away again, but with less animosity（敌意）. Tom patiently returned it to its place. Then she let it remain. Tom wrote on his paper, “Please take it—I got more. “The girl glanced at the words, but made no sign.
Now the boy began to draw something on the paper, hiding his work with his left hand. For a time the girl refused to notice; but her human curiosity（好奇心）soon began to show itself by hardly noticeable（明显的）signs. The boy worked on, seemingly not aware. The girl made some non—committal（含糊的）efforts to see, but the boy did not display that he was aware of it. At last she couldn’t bear it and whispered：
“Let me see it. “
Tom partly uncovered the picture of a house with some smoke rising from the chimney（烟囱）. Then the girl’s interest began to fasten itself upon the work and she forgot everything else. When it was finished, she gazed a moment, then whispered：“It’s nice—draw a man. “
The artist created a man in the front yard; she was satisfied, and whispered：“It’s a beautiful man——now draw me in it. “
Tom drew an hour—glass（沙漏）as the body, a full moon as her head and some arms added to it. The girl said：
“It’s ever so nice—I wish I could draw. No one has ever taught me that. “
“It’s easy, “ whispered Tom, “I’ll learn you. “
“Oh, will you？When？”
“At noon. Do you go home to dinner？”
“I’ll stay if you will. “
“Good—that’s a deal. What’s your name？”
( B)What probably happened in the classroom before this passage？
A. The girl introduced herself to the boy.
B. Something noticeable happened to the boy.
C. They had a lesson on how to draw.
D. The boy drew an apple for the girl.
( C)What most probably happened to the apple finally？

B. Eaten by the boy because it was the last one he had got.
C. Eaten by the girl because they finally became friends.
D. Eaten by the girl because the boy was drawing all the time.
( B)What can we learn from the 2nd paragraph？
A. The boy didn’t want the girl to show interest in his drawing.
B. The girl didn’t want to show interest in the boy’s drawing noticeably.
C. The boy didn’t notice the girl trying several times to see his drawing.
D. The girl didn’t want the boy to do the drawing in class any more.

16. When a thought has found words
Poetry（诗歌）is the forgotten child of literature. Few people read it for pleasure. In Western high
schools, poetry is seldom taught because it is considered to be out of date and have little to do with the life of today’s students.
In ChinA. however. poetry is still an important part of the curriculum（课程）. Recently, the Ministry of Education has increased the number of ancient Chinese poems for students to memorize and recite, from 14to 72. Why is it important to learn poems？
First of all, poetry is a necessary part of learning traditional Chinese culture. It is a path to understanding your history and your society. It is also the key to understanding the thoughts and feelings that are common to everyone but that we may be unable to express—the joy of Li Bai dancing with the moon, for example. Everyone has feelings of joy, love, loneliness, sadness and even anger, and a good poem can put those feelings into words and bring us self—understanding.
Poems can also express beauty. In a few short lines, even something common can become beautiful. Here is a poem called Fog by Carl Sandberg：The fog comes/on silent haunches（弓腰）/and then moves on. Yes, fog does move smoothly, silently and like a cat, and Sandberg catches that feeling and image（形象）, and makes it beautiful.
Of course, to really enjoy poetry, it has to be read aloud. After all, a poem is really just a song without music. Most ancient poetry, like Homer’s Epics（《荷马史诗》）and China’s Book of Songs, was spoken for hundreds of years before it was written.
The American poet Robert Frost said, “Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. “You are lucky that you now have seventy—two poems to learn!

5. 参考词汇：长篇读物full—length reading n. [u];
文学作品works of literature n. （pl. ）
Our school asks us to spend three hours on self—reading every day in the summer vacation. However, opinions are divided on what to read.
Some of us think we should choose the full—length reading, such as works of literature and scientific books. Because they can develop our reading habits. Others think that we should read practical essays. such as social news and knowledge about life. Because they can help us learn more about the world. At the same time, we will find life interesting for us through reading them.
In my opinion, I would like to choose practical essays. On the one hand, they can help us deal with our life problems. On the other hand, social news can let us know what happens every day around the world.
