You only have to share your children's interests. Firstly, listen to their questions. I once 14 a classroom of seven-year-olds to talk about science as a job. The children asked me "textbook questions" about schooling, salary and my job. When I 15 answering, I said, " 16 we're finished with your lists, do you have questions of your own about science ?" After a long 17 , a boy 18 his hand, "Have you ever seen a grasshopper（蚱蜢） 19 ？When I try eating leaves like that, I get a stomachache. Why ?" This began a set of questions that 20 nearly two hours. Secondly, give them time to think. After asking a question, teachers often wait only one 21 or less for an answer, no time for a child to think. When teachers 22 their "wait time" to three seconds or more, children usually give better answers. Thirdly, watch your language. When children are having a science discussion, don't jump in with "That's right" or "Very good" because these 23 may make the children think that discussion is over. 24 , keep things going by saying, "I'd never thought of it that way before", or coming up with more questions or ideas. Never 25 a child to "think". It doesn't make sense, because children are always thinking without your telling them to. What's more, this can turn a conversation 26 a performance. 27 , show in stead of telling. Let children look at their fingers through a magnifying glass（放大镜）, 28 they'll understand why you want them to 29 before dinner.

A. the student’s parents B. the student himself C. the student’s tutor D. the student’s teacher 32. The school doesn’t have Tutor Time ______. A. on Monday and Friday B. on Tuesday C. on Thursday A. 09:00 D. on Wednesday B. 10:00 C. 11:00 D. 12:00 33. Students can use their cell phones at ______ every day. 34.

You must ring the school if you are late. D. Wednesday afternoon is free. B When you are invited to attend a party in the West, the first important thing you need to know is that you should arrive late. It is a great embarrassment to arrive at a party early or even on time. Therefore, unless you are the host of the party, you never want to be the first person present at a party. Why? Because others may think that you have no life or nothing better to do than wait for a party to start. Many people try to project（展现）an image（形象）of always being busy, which, whether true or not, has something to do with success. So, by arriving late, you are implying: “I live a full life and it's really exciting.” Therefore, an 8 o'clock party usually doesn't really start until maybe 9 o'clock, as everyone wants to be thought of as a busy and important person with lots of things to do. In other words, a party is one of those rare occasions （极少数场合） in which your punctuality can actually hurt you. It's quite a strange thing, isn't it? Anyhow, remember to be late! 35. The passage is most likely to have been taken from a book about______. A. life in the West behavioral science 36. What is the reason that people want to be late for parties? A. They are not the host of the party. B. They are too busy to arrive on time. C. They want others to think they are busy. D. They don’t want to wait for a party to start. 37. What does the word "punctuality" in the last paragraph mean? A. Being polite B. Being late C. Being smart D. Being on time 38. We can infer from the passage that______. A. Sometimes people pretend to be what they want to be.

B. health and medicine
C. politics in the West
B. Lateness is not a problem when you are attending a meeting. C. You need to be late on every occasion. D. Going to a party can be a waste of time. C It’s puzzling, isn’t it? No matter where you try to tickle（使人发痒）yourself, even on the soles（脚 底） of your feet or under your arms, you just can’t. To understand why, you need to know more about how your brain works. One of its main tasks is to try to make good guesses about what’s going to happen next. While you’re busy getting on with your life, walking downstairs or eating your breakfast, parts of your brain are always trying to predict the future. Remember when you first learned how to ride a bicycle? At first, it took a lot of concentration to keep the handlebars steady and push the pedals（踏板） . But after a while, cycling became easy. Now you’re not aware of the movements you make to keep the bike going. From experience, your brain knows exactly what to expect so your body rides the bike automatically. Your brain is predicting all the movements you need to make. You only have to think consciously about cycling if something changes---like if there’s a strong wind or you get a flat tyre. When something unexpected happens like this, your brain is forced to change its predictions about what will happen next. If it does its job well, you’ll adjust to the strong wind, leaning your body so you don’t fall. Why is it so important for our brains to predict what will happen next? It helps us make fewer mistakes and can even save our lives. For example, when a chief fireman sees a fire, he immediately makes decisions about how best to position his men. His past experiences help him foresee what might happen and choose the best plan for fighting the fire. His brain can instantly predict how different plans would work out, and he can rule out any bad or dangerous plans without putting his men at risk in real life. So how does all this answer your question about tickling? Because your brain is always predicting your own actions, and how your body will feel as a result, you cannot tickle yourself. Other people can tickle you because they can surprise you. You can’t predict what their tickling actions will be. 39. What is the best title for this passage? A. How Does the Brain work? B. Why Can’t I Tickle Myself? C. The importance of Prediction D. The Importance of Our Brains 40. Our brains cannot predict what will happen when we______. A. walk down the stairs B. eat our breakfast
C. suddenly lose our balance and fall D. ride a bike 41. The phrase “rule out” in Paragraph 4 means______. A. decide that something is not suitable B. think about C. act according to the rules D. expect 42. The passage is probably taken from______. A. a scientific report for experts C. a book for children D. a research paper for doctors D Our culture is the system we use to build our identity. All living creatures are part of a culture. Even animals have a culture! So what is culture? It’s the way we behave in a group. It begins with each individual family. Within our families we do things to build relationships with each other. This can include routines for doing things. It also includes traditions. Traditions are activities that are repeated on a regular basis. Culture is not limited to individual family groups. The real strength of culture is in larger community （社会） groups. These larger groups are called societies. Every society makes rules for itself. It decides how people should act in different situations. Some of these rules are written down. Some are just things that are automatically expected of all members of that society. Often, cultures can be identified（识别）by what the people believe. Cultures are also known by what they choose to include in their art. Sometimes a society forms around people who speak the same language. Cultures may also be known for their customs, including the foods they make and the things they do. Our cultures help us understand who we are and what we believe. There are very strong emotions（情 感）connecting us to our own society. Two different cultures may disagree on something, especially if they both feel strongly about it. When that happens, war is a common result. People are learning better ways to communicate with each other. The more we learn, the more we appreciate the differences in cultures. 43. Which of the following is not true? A. Every society has its own culture. B. Every one with an identity card has his own culture. C. Animals have their cultures. D. Culture and traditions are connected.

B. a textbook for medical students
44. Which of the following has nothing to do with culture according to the passage? A. A religion that a certain people practice B. Greetings sent to people we love during spring festival C. Face-changing in Sichuan Opera D. Someone’s personal habit of staying up very late 45. Which of the following is true? A. Modern societies have written down all the rules for behavior. B. Plants themselves have no culture. C. Disagreement between two societies always leads to war. D. Strong emotions that connect us to our society should be got rid of. 46. We can infer from the passage that ______. A. cultural exchanges may help reduce the risk of war B. all disagreements are caused by strong feelings C. differences in culture always cause disagreements D. people haven’t tried different ways to communicate E Google is testing its newest high-tech device, Google Glass. Most of the technologies for Google Glass are already available on smart phones. Google has taken those same technologies and added them to eyeglass frames（眼镜架）. The company describes the glasses as wearable computers that would change the way people view others and the world. "Google Glass is a tiny computer that sits in a lightweight frame, and rests neatly above your eye and it makes exploring and sharing the world around you a lot easier,” said Chris Dale, the Senior Manager of Communications for Google Glass. The glasses have a tiny video screen and a camera that connect wirelessly to the Internet through WIFI, a smartphone, or a tablet computer. You can make and receive calls, send and receive texts, take pictures, record video or search the web. You control Google Glass using your voice, and a touchpad on the right arm of the frame. Professor Marcia Dawkins is among a select group of people who have been given a chance to test out Google Glass. "I thought this is something I definitely need for my classroom and hopefully for my personal life too." The Professor's Google Glass looks like a pair bright orange glasses, without the actual glass. But there's a tiny rectangular（长方形的）glass at the top right-hand corner. Through that glass, she has been recording video while biking. She also has been able to talk to her sister in Thailand, and she plans to use the device to teach a public speaking class.
But not everyone is excited about Google Glass. Some are concerned about possible risks to privacy. John Simpson is the director of the privacy project at Consumer Watchdog. "It is going to allow people to come in and spy on you and record that, without you knowing what is going on." Filmmaker Chris Barrett showed just how easy it is to record people without them knowing it. His glass captured（捕捉）a man getting arrested after a fight. He shared the video on You Tube. Also some are concerned about the use of facial recognition（面部识别）technology on Google Glass. But Google says it will not approve the use of such applications. The Internet company says it is still testing its new device, and it hopes to make Google Glass available to the public by early next year. 47. The technologies Google has made use of for Google Glass are______. A. completely new B. mostly already in use for smartphones C. high-tech but out-of-date D. all old 48. Which of the following is not true about Google Glass? A. It’s a very small computer. B. It’s very light in weight. C. Everyone can buy it now. D. It can be used for teaching by school teachers. 49. While cycling, the Professor has used the Glass to ______. A. record video and chat B. send emails C. teach a class D. spy on others 50. What can be inferred from the passage？ A. Google has done what it can to protect people’s privacy. B. Google Glass may be used for bad purposes. C. Most people feel worried about the use of the Glass. D. Google Glass is more useful than smartphones. 第二节 根据对话内容，从对话后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项 涂黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。 （共五小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分） Carol: Juliet? Juliet Smith? My gosh! Juliet: Carol!

or reading the news. News comes from every source, not only from printed ways, but from TV, radio, and the Internet as well.  With the increased availability of news, serious questions have been raised about
the role of the news media in society. Should the media report every detail about every story, even when the information does not seem timely or valuable? Some researchers are concerned that by focusing on everything at once, the media increasingly ignore the more important social, political and economic problems that we face. We cannot concentrate on what’s important by reading about what is not. One extreme example of this is the type of information covered by
A. How do you feel? B. Congratulations! C. Sure, I will. D. What a small world! E. And you? F. Are you sure? G. For ages!
the tabloid（小报）media, which focus on negative stories of violence and crime.  How can people deal with all the news that is available to them? Some become
“news resisters” and choose to turn their backs on news, resisting their desire to turn on the TV and read the paper every day. They argue that although daily news reports may provide us with many facts, they do not include the background or some information that we need to understand news events. They suggest that, instead of daily reports, we look for information that has more in-depth analysis of the news, such as monthly magazines.

Besides, forest destruction results in decrease of planting land. Now around China, most of the cities are enveloped by heavy haze which is the killer of our respiration.
Serious as the problem seems, we can come up with some measures to deal with it. First of all, the authorities should adopt the policy of "sustainable development", and the environmental protection should be strictly put into effect. What’s more, every citizen should realize the seriousness of the problem and make concerted efforts to protect our environment. In addition, planting trees helps improve and beautify the environment.
