But a new study suggests that paying attention to the words and letters on the page may lead to better readers. The two-year study compared children who were read to this way in class with children who were not. Those whose teachers most often discussed the print showed clearly higher skills in reading, spelling and understanding. These results were found one year and even two years later. Shayne Piasta, an assistant professor of teaching and learning at Ohio State University, was an author of the study. She says most preschool teachers would find this method manageable and would need only a small change in the way they teach. They already read storybooks in class. The only difference would be increased attention to the printed text. Ms Piasta says if you get children to pay attention to letters and words, it makes sense that they will do better at word recognition and spelling. But she says research suggests that very few parents and teachers do this in a systematic(系统的) way. More than 300 children aged four and five were observed in classrooms in Ohio and Virginia. The children came from poor families and were below average in their language skills. This put them at risk of reading problems later. For 30 weeks, the children took part in a program called Project STAR. It tests the short-term and long-term results of reading regularly to preschool children in their classrooms. There?re different ways that adults can talk to children about print. They can point to a letter and discuss it, and even trace the shape with a finger. They can point out a word, “This is a ?dog?.” They can discuss how the words tell the story. And they can talk about the organization of the print—for example, showing how words are written left to right in English. 56.According to the text, Shayne Piasta _______. B. worked in a middle school C. didn?t attend the research at all D. liked kids to be educated through words
E. hoped to increase kids? interest through pictures 57. According to the text, Project STAR ____. F. focused on adults? education G. was to study reading results H. was mainly conducted at home I. tested kids with good reading skills 58. What is the last paragraph mainly about? J. Why words have meanings. K. Different expressions of words. L. How words are spelled differently. M. Ways of teaching about print. 59. The text may appear in ____. N. Child Development O. Daily Technology P. International Affairs Q. Health Development B They say love can cover a lot of crimes; yet never have I seen it more beautifully showed than in the life of a dog named Jessie. Jessie came into our lives at the age of six months. By that time he had already experienced the hard knocks of life. He was found abandoned on the side of the road, where we adopted him and took him home. From the beginning, it was obvious that Jessie was traumatized (受精神创伤 的 ). He was afraid of everything: the car, the doors, the stairs, and just about everything else. We couldn?t foresee where Jessie?s fear would take us. Jessie was with us for about six months, when we became foster parents to a mixed-breed young dog. Jessie did not like her at all. We all lived in a nervous co-existence, until dinnertime. Within moments a food fight erupted between Jessie and this foster child. It all happened so fast, and I was in the middle. My husband managed to get in between the two dogs, grabbing Jessie by his collar. Jessie screamed all the way down the hall and into the bedroom. I, quickly put the foster dog into her own bedroom and hurried down the hall. The crashing I heard in the bedroom, scared me to death. But nothing prepared me for the scene I witnessed as I opened the bedroom door. There was my husband, on top of a terrified Jessie, holding back his head. Blood dripped from my husband?s arm. To tell you the truth, as I was sitting beside my husband in the emergency room, I just didn?t know what to do with Jessie. I was so angry at that dog. Day after day, week after week, however, my husband faithfully trained the dog that others would have put down. As his arm healed over the next months, something rare and beautiful began to take place. Jessie, under my husband?s gentle persuasion, began to understand and obey. And Jessie adored him. I could see, that although the tempest had ruled Jessie?s former life, affirmation and love had calmed the storm.
60. Before being adopted by the writer, Jessie had _______. R. suffered a lot S. Lived a happy life T. lived on the road half a year U. often fought against other dogs 61. Paragraph 2 shows that the writer was ________. A. happy B. disappointed C. angry D. worried 62. It can be inferred from the text that the writer?s husband?s arm bled because of _________. V. his own behavior W. the writer?s fault X. Jessie?s bite Y. The new foster dog 63. What would be the best title for the text? Z. A Dog Named Jessie AA. Love Calmed the Storm BB. Conflicts Between Dogs CC. Fights Between Man and Dog C Scores on a national test released(发布)on November 1 show that students in the U.S.A. have improved in math over the last two years, but mostly stayed the same in reading. This year, 422,000 fourth graders and 343,000 eighth graders took the exams between January and March. Students were asked to read grade-appropriate(年级适合 的) materials and answer questions for the reading test. For the math test, students answered questions about geometry, algebra, number properties, measurement and other topics. The U.S Department of Education released the scores in a report called The Nation?s Report Card (NAEP). This year, students earned the highest scores ever recorded on the math exam, which has been given since 1990.Fourth graders scored an average of 241.That is a one-point increase from 2009and a 28-point increase from 1990. Eighth graders made similar progress. Then average score this year was 284,up one point from 2009 and 21 points from 1990. In reading, fourth graders scored an average of 221 points, the same average score since 2007.That score is four points above those from 1992, when the first reading test was given. Eighth graders scored an average of 265 points, up one point from 2009 and five points from 1992. Education experts say reading is a harder subject to improve in the classroom than math. While math is largely learned in classrooms, reading results depend on how much kids read outside of school and how much they read in other subjects, such as history and science. On the NAEP, math scores were the highest among students who have limited use of calculators(计算器) during math lessons, compared with students who have unlimited use or no use. Reading scores were the highest among students who said
they read for fun on their own time almost every day. 64．According to the test, students in the U.S.A _______________________. A. do better in math than in reading B. work harder at reading than at math C. prefer to learn math in their spare time D. are more interested in reading than before 65. In 1990, the fourth graders? average score on the math exam was about____________ A.238 B. 240 C.213 D. 220 66. We can learn from the third paragraph that ______________. A. eighth graders all took part in the test in 2007 B .reading scores have not improved much since 2007 C. eighth graders got higher scores than fifth graders D. fourth graders? scores are becoming lower and lower 67. What can we learn from the passage? A. The first reading test was given in 1990. B. Eighth graders? average math score was 285 in 2009 C. Eighth graders got the same average as fourth graders in the reading this year D. Reading is hard to improve in the classroom because that requires students to read a lot outside of school. D Travelling abroad for leisure is becoming more and more popular for Chinese. The UK is high up in the list of places that the Chinese want to visit. There is a sense of mystery about the UK; it?s often the images of England?s green parks, countryside and Victorian houses that people point to as an alternative to polluted, overcrowded cities such as Beijing and Guangzhou. The capital is viewed as modern and dynamic, while being filled deep with history. When asked what other images are thought of by the UK, the reply is often “the Queen, tea and Oxbridge”. So what?s stopping them actually coming? Sebastian Wood ,the British ambassador in Beijing, has described the UK as a “fortress”, and while this is perhaps an exaggeration(夸张)，Britain does have a reputation as a country that is harder to access. The main problem for Chinese tourists is obvious. Although visa applications are now completed online, visitors are still required to visit one of 12 UK centers across the country for a face-to-face interview and fingerprinting. If you don?t live near one of these enters already, you?d have to travel some distance to get there. Another problem is also to be mentioned. If travelers from China visit the UK, they also want to cover as much ground as possible. But the UK is not included in the Schengen visa, which allows access to a host of 26 European countries such as France and Germany. So it makes the former seem a less worth it. There is also the issue of cost: ? 47 for a Schengen visa, ? 82 for the UK. On top of this, the UK is viewed as stricter in its handing of visas compared with the rest of Europe, fed by urban legends of rejected applications. In the end, the decision comes down to one question: Is Britain worth a visit?
68. The underlined word “fortress ” in paragraph2 is something similar to ______. A. temple B. apartment C. castle D. market 69. Which of the following statements is NOT true for the UK visa? A. One can apply for a visa online. B. One must have a face-to-face interview. C. No one can get a visa without a fingerprinting. D. No one needs to travel a long distance to get a center. 70. What can a visitor do if he gets a Schengen visa? A. He can only visit the UK. B. He can only visit 26 European countries. C. He can visit the UK and France. D. He can travel to any country he likes. 71. What is the writer ?s attitude towards visiting the UK? A. He really supports Chinese people to visit the UK. B. He suggests Chinese people visit London strongly. C. He thinks it is troublesome to visit the UK. D. He believes everyone should go to see the Queen and Oxbridge. E At age 11, Ghulam was married off to 40-year-old Jaiz in a rural Afghan village, making her only one of more than 10 million young girls who are being forced to wed men old enough to be their fathers of grandfather every year. In an effort to start a global conversation about the devastating effects of early marriages, which are currently practiced in more than 50 developing countries, the United Nations designed October 11 as International Day of the Girl Child this year. Although child marriage is against the law in many countries, and international treaties forbid the practice, it is estimated that about 51 million girls below age 18 are currently married, often under the cover of darkness and in secret. In Afghanistan alone, it is believed that approximately 57 percent of girls wed before the legal age of 16. Various factors drive parents of child bridges to marry off their daughters, from the community?s pressure to confirm to age-old cultural customs to economic considerations. In poor, developing nations, it is not uncommon for families to settle debts by offering their daughters as payment. Experts agree that early marriage denies the girl education and robs them of their childhood because most young wives, burdened by grownup responsibilities, do not get a chance to interact with their peers or carry on friendships outside the household. In many cases, the girls are lorded over by their husbands and in-laws, leaving them vulnerable(易受伤害的) to domestic violence as well as physical, sexual and verbal abuse. Underage wives who are lucky enough to escape from their husbands end up living in poverty, or worse. Most girls who enter early marriages are expected to get pregnant right away, which often leads to tragedy for both the mothers, who are still children themselves, and their babies. Unless international organizations take steps to reverse the troubling trend, it is estimated that over the next decade, 100 million more girls—or about 25,000 girls a
day ---will marry before they turn 18. To learn more about campaign to end the practice of early marriages, please click: Too Young To Wed. 72．The purpose of the first paragraph is to _________. A. attract readers? attention B. introduce the following topic C. list the countries practicing early marriages D. give readers an example of early marriages 73. The fifth paragraph mainly talks about __________. A. the number of girls involved in early marriages B. the causes of early marriages in developing counties C. the tragic effects of early marriages D. the countries that allow early marriages 74. The UN made October 11 as International Day of the Girl Child in order to __ A. urge parents to treat girls equally as boy B. call on people to pay more attention to girls? education C. call on people to pay more attention to girls in poor countries or areas D. start a global campaign against early marriages 75. Which of the following is a cause of early marriages? A. The present girls develop much earlier than before B. Some poor parents marry off their young girls for economic problems. C. Many young girls receive little or no education for different reasons. D. Most girls suffer from domestic violence and have babies too early.

录音原文 Text 1 W: What are you doing up so early? M: I?m going to line up to get tickets for the baseball match. They go on sale at 10:00 a.m., but I want to make sure I?m at the front of the line, so I?m planning to get to the stadium when it opens at 8:00 a.m. W: Wow, you sure are a real fan! I don?t think I?ve ever seen you awake before 7 o?clock! Text 2 M: I forgot my student ID. Can I still check out a book? W: It?s okay, as long as you don?t have any overdue books. What?s your student number? Text 3 M: Next time I go to the doctor, remind me to bring you along. I probably understood half of what the guy told me. He spoke so fast, and he used tons of words that I never learned in my Chinese classes. W: I thought they had English-speaking doctors there. Text 4 W: Professor, could I hand in my paper a few days late? M: I?m afraid that?s out of the question. Text 5 W: How much is your cell phone bill each month? M: It?s different every month. Depending on how long I spend online and what kinds of things I use my phone to do on the Internet, it ranges between 60 and 80 dollars a month. Text 6 W: Good morning, class. Today, I thought we would talk about something bright and cheerful — the sun! Can anyone tell me how you feel when it?s sunny compared to how you feel when it?s cloudy? M: I find that it?s a lot easier to get up in the morning if it?s sunny. W: Well, what if I told you that it would rain for weeks on end with no break? M: I don?t think I would like that very much. W: Lately, most of the articles regarding the sun only discuss the negative effects of staying in the sun for too long. Although these articles are factual, the sun does have some positive effects as well. Text 7 W: Whoa! Did you just go swimming in a pool of sweat or what? M: Very funny! It was hot out there, and I ran two miles more than I usually do. W: I?ll bet you lost five pounds of your body weight after your jog! M: Yeah, I can?t wait to take a shower. Have you seen my brown shorts?
W: Yeah, they?re in the laundry room. I was just about to do a load. You know what? Why don?t you throw those dirty clothes in there, and I?ll wash them with the others? M: Good idea. Let me just get something to drink first. I don?t think I?ve ever been this thirsty in my entire life! W: Yeah, of course. First things first! Text 8 W: Hi. I was wondering if you have time to cut and color my hair today. M: Yes, we could fit you in at 4:00 p.m. What did you have in mind? W: My husband was joking with me that I?d look good as a redhead, so I want to surprise him and come home with bright red hair. M: We can definitely do that, but your hair is so dark that we would need to use some chemicals first. It might be better if you come back tomorrow, since this will take a long time. W: Oh, I hadn?t realized you would need to use so many chemicals. They won?t damage my hair, will they? M: That is another concern. You have such healthy-looking hair, and these chemicals might be hard on it. W: Couldn?t you dye my hair red without using the chemicals? M: We could try that, but it wouldn?t give you the result you?re looking for. You would still have black hair, but with a slight red tone. W: I see. I think I?ll go ahead and have you use the chemicals and then color my hair. What time can I come in tomorrow? M: Let?s see… I have openings at noon and at 3:00 p.m. W: Noon would work best for me. I?ll bring a book to read, since I?ll be sitting in that chair for a long time! Text 9 W: Good morning, Mr. Evans. Did you have a nice weekend? M: Not really. My wife and my daughter were arguing the whole weekend about God knows what, and my son came down with the flu, so we had to miss a really important football game that I had gotten tickets to. W: Oh, that?s too bad. Is he feeling any better now? M: A little bit. He?ll be fine in a few days. So, what?s on the agenda for today? W: You?ve got a 10:00 a.m. meeting about the Peterson account. And you?re having lunch with Valerie Dumonde. She wanted to talk to you before she leaves for Paris this evening. M: Right. What time is the reservation? W: 12:30. The car will pick you up downstairs at noon and take you over to her office. It shouldn?t take more than ten minutes to get there, and another five from her office to Charmaine?s. You?ll have plenty of time. M: All right. What about the afternoon? W: Well, so far, it looks like you just have the regular 3:00 p.m. managers meeting and some emails to respond to. M: That?s a relief. Maybe I?ll even make it out of here on time today! W: Well, that would be a first, Mr. Evans, but I?ll keep my fingers crossed!
Text 10 A white dog named Bubbles was lost near the north entrance to Central Park on Wednesday, June 8th. Bubbles was last seen wearing a dark brown leather collar. Attached to the collar is a pink name tag with her address and phone number on it. Bubbles is a seven-year-old female dog with short hair. She weighs about five pounds and is very smart. She can sit and wait to be given food, play catch, roll over, and play dead. Bubbles is a member of our family, and we miss her very much. We got Bubbles as a two-month-old puppy when our daughter was only three years old. Bubbles slept with her every night. Now, our daughter cries herself to sleep every night because she misses her best friend. Bubbles brought such love and happiness to our family. Please help us find her. We are offering a reward of $1000 to anyone who finds and returns this precious member of our family to us, no questions asked. If you have seen Bubbles or know where she is, call us at (206) 452-9716.
参考范文 I only complete with myself In the real world, everyone wants to be splendid. Some look for a man of straw(假想的对手) to catch up with, while others just compete with themselves. To me own, I certainly stand for the latter. As a high school student, my dream is to enter a key university. In order to realize it, I once locked on the number one student in our grade as my target object. But the result turned out to be far from satisfactory. Under greater and greater pressure, I just couldn?t concentrate my mind on studies and often made stupid mistakes. I realized I had to make a change. From then on I stopped forcing myself but struggled to the end just to be the best of me. What I required myself to achieve was not to be better than anyone else but to defeat the old one. Since then, I have performed better and made progress day by day. So it is really useless setting unrealistic goals for ourselves, since there is always someone who is either prettier or smarter than us. We might have kept chasing after others for a lifetime but finally found that we didn?t achieve anything. As the saying goes, “God only saves the man who saves himself.” The person we need to compete with is just ourselves. Life will be surprisingly wonderful as long as we try to be the best of us. 答案解析：

力范围之内，选择句式时要赋予变化，因为这样你才可以更好的驾驭。在发表个人观点的时 候，可以使用谚语来提升整个文章的档次和文采，也能增加得高分的可能性。 高考英语作文已经不再仅仅考察学生的议论能力，它有些借鉴中文作文，要求学生夹 叙夹议。 在叙述中， 如果只是平铺直叙那显然得不到高分。 描写的关键在于捕捉事物的特征， 而高考作文往往要求学生在短短几句话中描写到位，这其实是不低的要求。
