Your job is to try and 40 me in the Lie of the Day.” And thus 41 our ten-week course. Early in the course, the Lie of the Day was usually obvious — 42 causing a forest of raised 43 to challenge the lie. Dr. K would smile, saying, “Very good! In fact, the opposite is 44 .” As the course progressed, 45 , the Lie of the Day became less 46 . Every once in a while, a lecture would 47 with nobody catching the lie. On such days, we would all sit in 48 , while Dr. K looked quite 49 with himself and announced: “Ah ha! Each of you has one lie in your 50 . Discuss what it might be, and I will tell you next Monday.” Those lectures forced us to 51 what we had set down in our notebooks the following week. It's years since I 52 . While my knowledge taught by Dr. K has faded over time, the lessons will always stay 53 with me. “Experts” can be 54 and say things that sound right—so build a habit of 55 new information and check it against things you already accept as a fact. 36.

All my life I had wanted a dog. I had two cats that I adored like children, but I still wanted the company of a dog. Then unfortunately I lost my cats. Soon came another shock that my husband left me forever because of lung cancer. I felt I had just lost everything that ever mattered to me. I voiced these feelings to a friend, who took me to a pet store. The store was holding an adoption day with shelters. I looked at and held several puppies， wondering which to choose. Then I met Maggie. She looked at me with the saddest eyes I had ever seen, then laid her head on my shoulder and slept. I immediately decided to save her! Maggie adjusted well. I, however, was still adjusting. One night, thoughts of losing everything rushed through my head again. So depressed was I that I felt the only solution was to end my life. With a bottle of medicine in one hand and Maggie on my lap, I took the pills. Through my tear-filled eyes I looked down at Maggie to tell her I was sorry. The look on her face I will never be able to explain. It’s as if her eyes said， “Don’t leave me; I need you just as you needed me.” It was then that I ran to the bathroom to vomit up the pills. The rest of the night I sat on the couch holding Maggie and thanking her for saving me. Since that night I have had a love for her that I never knew possible. She never leaves my side when I am at home. She has taught me to smile and laugh. Together with Maggie, I feel I can get through anything. 56.The author got Maggie from____________.

Because she couldn’t find any solution to her problem. 59.What can be a suitable title for the text? A. My favorite pet dog. B. Who saved who? C. What is love? D. Love for life. B One of my wonderful memories is about a Christmas gift. Unlike other gifts, it came without wrap(包装). On September11th,1958, Mum gave birth to Richard. After she brought him home from hospital, she put him in my lap, saying. "I promised you a gift, and here it is. " What an honor! I turned four a month earlier and none of my friends had such a baby
doll of their own. I played with it day and night. I sang to it. I told it stories. I told it over and over how much I loved it! One morning, however, I found its bed empty. My doll was gone! I cried for it. Mum wept and told me that the poor little thing had been sent to a hospital. It had a fever. For several days, I heard Mum and Dad whispering such words as "hopeless", "pitiful", and "dying", which sounded ominous. Christmas was coming. "Don’t expect any presents this year." Dad said, pointing at the socks I hung in the living room. "If your baby brother lives, that'll be Christmas enough." As he spoke, his eyes were filled with tears. I'd never seen him cry before. The phone rang early on Christmas morning. Dad jumped out of bed to answer it. From my bedroom I heard him say, "What? He's all right?" He hung up and shouted upstairs. "The hospital said we can bring Richard home!" "Thank God.'" I heard Mum cry. From the upstairs window, I watched my parents rush out to the car. I had never seen them happy. And I was also full of joy. What a wonderful day! My baby doll would be home. I ran downstairs. My sacks still hung there flat. But I knew they were not empty; they were filled with love! 60. What happened to the author on September 11th,1958 ? A. He got a baby brother B. He got a Christmas gift C. He became four years old D. He received a doll 61.What does the underlined word “ominous” in Paragraph 3 probably mean？ A. Impossible. B. Boring C. Difficult D. Fearful 62. Which word can best describe the feeling of the father when Christmas was coming? A. Excitement. B. Sadness. C. Happiness. D. Disappointment. 63. What is the passage mainly about ? A. A sad Christmas day B. Life with a lovely baby C. A special Christmas gift. D. Memories of a happy family C At a primary school in a small town in the east of South Carolina, second-grade teachers Garneau and Lynne are convinced that separating elementary-age boys and girls produces immediate academic improvement in both genders(性别). David Chadwell, South Carolina’s coordinator (协调者)of single gender education says, “Boys and girls learn, hear and respond to their surroundings differently. We can teach boys and girls based on what we now know.” Male and female eyes are not organized in the same way, he explains. The composition of the male eye makes it sensitive to motion and direction. “Boys interpret the world as objects moving through space,” he says. The male eye is also drawn to cooler colors like silver and black. It’s no a ccident boys tend to create pictures of moving objects instead of drawing the happy colorful family, like girls do in their class. The female eye, on the other hand, is drawn to warmer colors like red, yellow and orange. To attract girls, Chadwell says, the teacher doesn’t need to move as much as in
boy’s class. Using descriptive phrases and lots of colors in presentations or on the blackboard gets their attention. Boys and girls also hear differently. “When someone speaks in a loud tone, girls interpret it as yelling,” Chadwell says. “They think you’re mad and can shut down.” Girls are more sensitive to sounds. He advises girls’ teachers to watch the tone of their voices. Boys’ teachers should sound more forceful, even excited. A boy’s nervous system causes him to be more cautious when he is standing, moving, and the room temperature is around 69 degrees Fahrenheit. Stress in boys, he says, tends to increase blood flow to their brains, a process that helps them stay focused. Girls are more focused when seated in a warmer room around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Girls also respond to stress differently. When exposed to threat and conflict, blood goes to their guts(肠道), leaving them feeling nervous or anxious. These differences can be applied in the classroom. Chadwell adds, “Single gender programs are about maximizing the learning.” 64. What is David Chadwell’s attitude toward separating elementary-age boys and girls while learning? A. Supportive B. Worried C. Concerned D. Uninterested 65. Which of the following shows the organization of the passage? (①= Paragraph 1 ? ②= Paragraph 2 , ③ = Paragraph 3 ….. ⑧ = Paragraph 8)
66. To engage boys in a class, the teacher ______. A. had better move constantly while teaching B. must have a moving object in this hand C. needs to wear clothes in warm color D. has to speak politely 67.Which of the following students is most likely to be focused? A. A boy sitting in a warm room B. A standing boy who is faced with stress C. A girl standing in a cold room D. A girl who is facing a lot of pressure D Work is a very important part of life in the United States. When the early Protestant
immigrants came to this country, they brought the idea that work was the way to God and heaven. This attitude, the Protestant Work Ethic (道德规范), still influences America today. Work is not only important for economic benefits, the salary, but also for social and psychological needs, the feeling of doing something for the good of the society. Americans spend most of their lives working, being productive. For most Americans, their work defines them: they are what they do. What happens then, when a person can no longer work? Almost all Americans stop working at age sixty-five or seventy and retire. Because work is such an important part of life in this culture, retirement can be very difficult. Retirees often feel that they are useless and unproductive. Of course, some people are happy to retire; but leaving one’s job, whatever it is, is a difficult change, even for those who look forward to retiring. Many retirees do not know how to use their time or they feel lost without their jobs. Retirements can also bring financial problems. Many people rely on Social Security checks every month. During their working years, employees contribute a certain percentage of their salaries to the government. Each employer also gives a certain percentage to the government. When people retire, they receive this money as income. These checks do not provide enough money to live on, however, because prices are increasing very rapidly. Senior citizens, those over sixty-five, have to have savings in the bank or other retirement plans to make ends meet. The rate of inflation is forcing prices higher each year; Social Security checks alone cannot cover these growing expenses. The government offers some assistance, Medicare (health care) and welfare (general assistance), but many senior citizens have to change their life styles after retirement. They have to spend carefully to be sure that they can afford to buy food, fuel and other necessities. Of course, many senior citizens are happy with retirement. They have time to spend with their families or enjoy their hobbies. Some continue to work part time, others do volunteer work. Some, like those in the Retired Business Executives Association, even help young people to get started in new business. Many retired citizens also belong to “Golden Age” groups. These organizations plan trips and social events. There are many chances for retirees. American society is only beginning to be concerned about the special physical and emotional needs of its senior citizens. The government is taking steps to ease the problem of limited income. They are building new housing, offering discounts in stores and museums and on buses, and providing other services such as free courses, food service, and help with housework. Retired citizens are a rapidly growing percentage of the population. This part of the population is very important and we must meet their needs. After all, every citizen will be a senior citizen some day. 68. The author believes that work first became important to Americans because of _______. A. economy B. religion C. psychology D. family 69.The passage is mainly about _______. A. work and retirement B. senior and junior C. money and check D. Protestants and Americans 70. When Americans stop work, it’s difficult for them to _______.
A. get Social Security checks C. feel productive
B. enjoy themselves D. be religious
