English is a language that keeps developing. However, there are some words and rases that have stood the test of time. OK is a good example. It has become the
International way to express agreement
Why is this phrase so useful and so popular when we could use many
other words to say the same thing?
Allen Metcatf, writer of OK: The Improbable Story of America’s Greatest Word
writes in The Times:"What OK provided that the other words did not was neutrality
(中立). it's a way to express agreement without having to give an opinion.
For example, if someone asks you:“ Shall we go for a walk after lunch?”You could say:“ I suppose”,or “That sounds great!”or, you can simply say,“OK”— no extraopinion, Complete neutrality.
But does this useful phrase sound a little too informal(不正式的)?O course http://m.wendangku.net/doc/eab0403da55177232f60ddccda38376baf1fe0a1.html President Barack Obama used“OK” several times in his election(选举) speech
Where did this popular phrase come from? No one knows for sure. OK may have
been, simply, the name of a person or a thing.
Metcalf writes in an article for London’s Metro newspaper: O and K are presen
many languages of the world. "OK is the short form of expressions for
meaning. For example: in French, "o Qu oui”, means"yes indeed", and in
Greek,”olla kalla”,”all good”.
Wherever it comes from. it's OK to say OK. And thanks to the expression’s
widespread usage across the world, you can be understood anywhere.

The practice of students endlessly copying letters and sentences from a blackboard
is a thing of the past. With the coming of new technologies like computers and
smartphone, writing by hand has become something of nostalgic(怀旧的) skill
However, while today ' s educators are using more and more technology in their
teaching, many believe basic handwriting skills are still necessary for students to be
successful- both in school and in life
Virginia Beminger, professor of education at the University of Washington, says
it's important to continue teaching handwriting and help children acquire the skill of
writing by hand.
Beminger and her colleagues made a study that looked at the ability of students to complete various writing tasks both on a computer ands by hand. The study published in 2009, found that when writing with a pen and paper, participants wrote
longer essays(文章) and more complete sentences and had a faster word production rate(率)
In a more recent study, Berninger looked at what role spelling plays in a student's writing skills and found that how well children spell is tied to how well they can write.
"Spelling makes some of the thinking parts of the brain active which helps our t
vocabulary, word meaning and ideas. It is allowing our written language to connect p
with ideas. "Berninger said
Spelling helps students translate ideas into words in their mind first and then to
transcribe(转换)"those words in the mind written symbols on paper or keyboard and
screen, "the study said. Seeing the words in the "minds eye"helps children not only
turn their ideas into words, says Berninger, but also to find out spelling mistakes when they write the words down and to correct them over time.
“In our computer age, some people believe that we don't have to teach spelling
because we have spell checks, "she said. "But until a child has a
functional spelling ability of about a fifth grade level, they won 't have the knowledge to choose the correct spelling among the options (选择) given by the computer.
37. What makes writing by hand a thing of the past?
A. The absence of black board in classroom.
B. The use of new technologies in teaching.
C. The lack of practice in handwriting.
D. The popular use of smartphones

A.talked about the difference between writing by hand and on a computer.
B. showed that students preferred to write with a pen and paper.
C. found that good essays were made up of long sentences.
D. discussed the importance of writing speed.
39. Which of the following best shows the role of spelling?
A. Spelling improves one's memory of words
B. Spelling ability is closely connected to writing ability
C. Spelling benefits the translation from words into ideas
D. Spelling slows down finding exact words to express ideas.
40. What does“mind's eye” in paragraph5mean?
