Once I came out of the kitchen, complaining, “Mum, I can’t peel potatoes. I have only one hand.” Mum never looked up from sewing. “You get yourself into that kitchen and peel those potatoes,” she told me. “And don’t ever use that as an excuse for anything again!” In the second grade, our teacher lined up my class on the playground and had each of us race across the monkey bars, swinging from one high steel rod to the next. When it was my turn, I shook my head. Some kids behind me laughed, and I went home crying. That night I told Mum about it. She hugged me, and I saw her “we’ll see about that” look. The next afternoon, she took me back to school. At the deserted playground, mum looked carefully
at the bars. “Now, pull up with your right arm,” she advised. She stood by as I struggled to lift myself with my right hand until I could hook the bar with my other elbow. Day after day we practiced, and she praised me for every rung I reached. I’ll never forget the next time, crossing the rungs; I looked down at the kids who were standing with their mouths open. One night, after a dance at my new junior high, I lay in bed sobbing. I could hear Mum came into my room. “Mum,” I said, weeping, “none of the boys would dance with me.” For a long time, I didn’t hear anything. Then she said, “Oh, honey, someday you’ll be beating those boys off with a bat.” Her voice was faint and cracking. I peeked out from my covers to see tears running down her cheeks. Then I knew how much she suffered on my behalf. She had never let me see her tears. 24. Which of the following expressions can be used most suitably to describe Mum’s attitude when she made the child peel potatoes? A. Serious B. Strict C. Cautious D. Considerate 25. What does the underlined sentence in Paragraph 4 imply? A. Mum was determined to prove she herself was better than the teacher. B. The race across monkey bars was not difficult enough for a child to give up. C. What the child had said brought Mum great attraction and curiosity. D. Mum believed every aim could be achieved if you stuck to it. 26. When the child looked down at the kids, they were standing with their mouths open because ________. A. they felt sorry for what they had done before B. they were afraid the author might fall off and get hurt C. they were astonished to find the author’s progress D. they wanted to see what the author would do on the bars 27. The most probable conclusion we can draw after reading the passage is ________. A. Mum suffered more in the process of the child’s growth actually B. the last incident was sad enough to make Mum weep C. Mum could solve any problem except the one in the last paragraph D. the child’s experience reminded Mum of that of her own C Children are known to be very keen observers and once they are interested in something, it is very likely to stay with them for life. They tend to look at life through the eyes of the person they are close to or want to be like. If their role model is optimistic, there are more chances of them optimistic. The role model becomes their standard of measurement. Because they follow the actions of their role models so closely, children adopt the personality and attitude of their role models. Children learn to like or dislike certain things by mimicking the personality and attitude of the people they admire. One reason why children keep changing their answers to “what would you like to be when you grow up” is that they are influenced by individuals in a certain field. Children view the social relationships (family or public) mainly in the light of the importance these relationships hold in the life of their role models. Their expression of their feelings is many times a reflection of their role model’s outlook. According to a study, around 56% of teenagers identified with the role models. Out of these, those having personal or direct contact with their role models had higher self-esteem and were better at academics compared to those who didn’t. As such, children who have positive role models,
have more self-confidence and are more optimistic about their future. They learn to handle themselves well in social settings and positively interact with those around them. Of course, children who have their parents as positive role models have a well-rounded outlook towards life. They find it easier to deal with the highs and lows of life because they have seen their parents do it before. They find a sense of stability and security knowing that they will overcome failures just like their parents before them. Besides, it becomes easier for parents to discipline and guide children. So it is no wonder why children who have parents as their role models have fewer behavioral issues. 28. This article is mainly about______. A. the importance of role models to children B. how to be a good role model for children C. the relation between role models and children D. how to change children’s personality and attitude 29. The underlined word “mim icking” in Paragraph 2 can be replaced by ______. A. studying B. accepting C. changing D. imitating 30. According to the study, after direct contact with their role models, ______. A. there is a decrease in children’s self-esteem B. there are fewer children better at academics C. chi ldren may have a strong desire to succeed D. children may feel more optimistic about their future 31. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that______. A. children’s behavioral issues are serious B. people should learn the latest studies on role models C. parents should set a good example for children D. teaching children strategies for security is important D The behavior of a building's users may be at least as important as its design when it comes to energy use, according to new research from the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC). The UK promises to reduce its carbon emissions (排放)by 80 percent by 2050, part of which will be achieved by all new homes being zero carbon by 2016. But this report shows that sustainable building design on its own—though extremely important—is not enough to achieve such reductions: the behavior of the people using the building has to change too. The study suggests that the ways that people use and live in their homes have been largely ignored by existing efforts to improve energy efficiency, which instead focus on architectural and technological developments. “Technology is going to assist but it is not going to do everything，”explains Katy Janda, a UKERC senior researcher, “consumption patterns of building users can defeat the most careful design.” In other words, old habits die hard, even in the best designed eco home. Another part of the problem is information. Households and bill payers don't have the knowledge they need to change their energy use habits. Without specific information, it's hard to estimate the costs and benefits of making different choices. Feedback（反馈） facilities, like smart meters and energy monitors, could help bridge this information gap by helping people see how changing their behavior directly affects their energy use; some studies have shown that households can achieve up to 15 percent energy savings using smart meters. Social science research has added a further dimension, suggesting that individuals' behavior in the home can be personal and cannot be predicted—whether people throw open their windows rather than turn down the thermostat (恒温器) , for example. Janda argues that education is the key. She calls for a focused program to teach people about
buildings and their own behavior in them. 32. As to energy use, the new research from UKERC stresses the importance of ________. A. zero carbon homes B. the reduction of carbon emissions C. sustainable building design D. the behavior of building users 33. The underlined word “which” in Paragraph 2 refers to“________”. A. their homes B. existing efforts C. developments D. the ways 34. What are Katy Janda's words mainly about? A. The importance of changing building users' habits. B. The necessity of making a careful building design. C. The variety of consumption patterns of building users. D. The role of technology in improving energy efficiency. 35. The information gap in energy use________. A. affects the study on energy monitors B. brings about problems for smart meters C. can be bridged by feedback facilities D. will be caused by building users' old habits 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项 中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 There is an old Spanish proverb which states, “Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week”. 36 I’d say, too many. Our dreams should not, and cannot wait. We have to go for them now! Here’s why. 1. 37 Nobody likes to talk about death, but the reality is that everybody is going to die at one point. None of us know the day, or the hour. Therefore, today is all we have. Don’t go to your grave with unfulfilled dreams. Make the decision to go after every dream, big or small right now. 2. The world is waiting on your gift. I know this may be hard to believe, but the world is waiting on YOU! Yes, YOU! 38 Sure, other people may be ab le to sing. But they’ll never be able to sing exactly like you. Sure other people can write, but they’ll never be able to write from the same perspective in which you write. Don’t deprive the world of your gift. It’s the oxygen that we need to survive. Thus, it is your responsibility to figure out exactly what your gift is, and use to better your life and the lives of those around you. 3. 39 You can dream about writing the great American play that you want, but it’s never going to happen unless you actually put pen to paper. You can dream about finding a cure for cancer, but it will never happen unless you actually go to school to become equipped with the necessary tools to find that cure. 40 They require you to get your head out of the clouds, and actually do the work to make them happen. Get to it! A. You can’t let fear win. B. Tomorrow is not promised. C. In other words, dreams don’t work unless you do. D. How many times have we put off our dreams until tomorrow? E. You were born into the world with a unique gift, which nobody on this earth can duplicate. F. Possibilities you never knew existed are waiting on you. G. Unless you take the first step, your dreams will never come true. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项，

The other day our class had a discussion about if we should welcome the Web Language. Forty percent of the students think it ridiculous. They argue that it did no good to helping people communicate, nor is it useful for learning languages. Beside, it'll make Chinese less standard and pure, finally ruining our mother tongue. However, 69% of the students is fond of it. They think it simple, convenient and helpful in expressing them. What's more, it may make the language more interested. Personally, it’s not good habit to use the Web Language.

It’s reported that in China many children in mountainous areas still have no access to school because of poverty. Last week, our class held a discussion about how to help them to go to school and live a happy childhood. Here are our suggestions. First and foremost, some old textbooks and clothes can be collected and sent to those children so that they can be reused. As far as I’m concerned, we should save some of our pocket money and give it to those children in need. What’s more, it’s also very important to appeal to more people and social organizations to help and care for those poor children. Above all, we should give them respect, never looking down upon them because they are poor. We would appreciate it if you can, through the Teens, increase public awareness of the poor children’s living conditions and call on more people to help them. Yours sincerely, Li Hua
