A Until last spring, Nia Parker and the other kids in her neighborhood went to school on Bus 59. But as fuel prices rose, the school district needed to find a way to cut its transportation costs. So the school’s busing company redrew its route map, canceling Nia’s bus. Now Nia and her neighbors travel the half mile to school via a “walking school bus”—a group of kids, supervised (监护) by an adult or two, who make the walk together. Many parents are delighted to see their kids walking to school, partly because many did so themselves. According to a 1979 survey, nearly half of school kids walked or biked to school, compared with only 16 percent in 2011. Modern parents have been unwilling to let kids walk to school for fear of traffic, crime or simple bullying, but with organized adult supervision, those concerns have reduced. Schools and busing companies are finding other ways to save. In rural areas where busing is a must, some schools have even chosen four-day school weeks. Busing companies instruct drivers to cancel extra stops from routes and to turn off the engine while idling(挂空挡). They are also using computer software to determine the most fuel-efficient routes, which aren’t always the shortest ones. There could be disadvantages, however, to the busing cutbacks. If every formerly bused student begins walking to school, it’s an environmental win—but if too many of their parents decide to drive them instead, the overall carbon footprint can grow. Replacing buses with many more parent-driven cars can also increase safety risks. A 2011 report concluded students are 13 times safer on a school bus than in a passenger car, since buses have fewer accidents and withstand them better due to their size. And some students complain about the long morning hikes, particularly when the route contains a really big hill. 56. In regards to walking to school, modern parents seem much concerned with the _____. A. safety of their kids C. time spent on the way A. shorten the school week C. stop using school buses 58. Busing cutbacks may lead to _____. A. fewer complaints about long morning hikes B. more students taking public transportation C. an increase in carbon dioxide emissions D. a decrease in the safety of school buses B A metaphor is a poetic device that deals with comparison. It compares similar qualities of two dissimilar objects. With a simple metaphor, one object becomes the other: Love is a rose. Although this does not sound like a particularly rich image, a metaphor can communicate so much about a particular image that poets use them more than any other type of figurative language. The reason for this is that poets compose their poetry to express what they are experiencing emotionally at that moment. Consequently, what the poet imagines love to be may or may not be our understanding of love. Therefore, the poet’s job is to enable us to experience it, to feel it the same way 英语第 5 页（共 12 页） B. kids’ physical strength D. changes in the route B. take the shortest routes D. use fuel-efficient buses
57. To save money, some schools choose to _____.
as the poet does. Let’s analyze this remarkably simple metaphor concerning love and the rose to see what it offers. Because the poet uses a comparison with a rose, first we must examine the characteristics of that flower. A rose is impressive in its beauty, its petals （花瓣） are nicely soft, and its smell is pleasing. It’s possible to say that a rose is actually a feast to the senses of sight, touch, and smell. The rose’s appearance seems to border on perfection, each petal seemingly equal in form. Isn’t this the way one’s love should be？A loved one should be a delight to one’s senses and seem perfect. However, there is another dimension added to the comparison by using a rose. Roses have thorns. The poet wants to convey the idea that roses can be tricky. So can love, the metaphor tells us. When one reaches out with absolute trust to touch the object of his or her affection, ouch, a thorn can cause great harm! “Be careful,” the metaphor warns, “Love is a feast to the senses, but it can overwhelm us, and it can also hurt us and cause acute suffering.” This is the poet’s understanding of love—an admonition (劝诫). What is the point？Just this: It took almost 14 sentences to clarify what a simple metaphor communicates in only four words! That is the artistry and the joy of the simple metaphor. 59. According to the passage, a metaphor is a ________. A. description of two similar objects in a poetic way B. literary device specially employed in poetry writing C. contrast between two different things to create a vivid image D. comparison between two different objects with similar features 60. As is meant by the author, thorns of a rose ________. A. add a new element to the image of love B. protect the rose from harm C. symbolize reduced love D. cause acute suffering 61. It can be inferred from the passage that a metaphor is _______. A. difficult to understand C. simple to use A. love is a rose in metaphor B. a rose is a good image in poetry C. a metaphor is a great poetic device D. a poet should be careful to use a metaphor C On my first job as a sports editor for the Montpelier Leader Enterprise, I didn’t get a lot of fan mail, so I was intrigued by a letter plopped on my desk one morning. The envelope bore the logo of the closest big-city paper, the Toledo Blade. When I opened it, I read: “Sweet piece of writing on the Tigers. Keep up the good work.” 英语第 6 页（共 12 页） B. rich in meaning D. perfect in form
62. The main idea of this passage is that ________.
It was signed by Don Wolfe, the sports editor. Because I was a teenager (being paid the grand total of 15 cents a column inch), his words could not have been more exciting. I kept the letter in my desk drawer until it got rag-eared. Whenever I doubted I had the right stuff to be a writer, I would reread Don’s note and walk on air again. Later, when I got to know him, I learned that Don made a habit of writing a quick, encouraging word to people in all walks of life. “When I make others feel good about themselves,” he told me, “I feel good, too.” Why are upbeat note writers in such short supply? My guess is that many who shy away from the practice are too self-conscious. They are afraid they will be misunderstood, sound old-fashioned or flattering. Also, writing takes time and it is far easier to pick up the phone. The drawback with phone calls, of course, is that they do not last. A note attaches more importance to our well-wishing. It is a matter of record, and our words can be read more than once, appreciated, and treasured. What does it take to write notes that lift spirits and warm hearts? Perhaps just a desire and a willingness to express our appreciation. The most successful people write notes that are short on words and long on feeling, sincere, short, specific, and usually spontaneous in nature. It is difficult to be spontaneous, however, when you have to hunt for letter writing materials; so, keep paper, envelopes, and stamps close at hand, even when you travel. Fancy stationery is not necessary; it’s the thought that counts. So, who around you deserves a note of thanks or approval? A neighbor, your librarian, a relative, your mate, a teacher, or your doctor? You do not need to be poetic. If you need a reason, look for a milestone, the anniversary of a special event you shared, a birthday, or holiday, and do not hold back your praise. Such words as: “greatest,” “smartest,” “prettiest” make us all feel good. Even if your praises run a little ahead of reality, remember that expectations are often the parents of dreams fulfilled. 63. On seeing the letter on the desk, the author felt _____. A. annoyed B. curious C. doubtful D. shocked 64. According to the author, many people don’t write upbeat notes mainly because they are _____. A. afraid of being out of date C. prepared to make phone calls A. praises often run ahead of reality B. praises help in pursuing a dream C. parents often write upbeat notes D. parents expect children’s success 66. What might be the suitable title for the passage? A. The Power of a Positive Note C. The Necessity of Writing Notes B. Notes Help to Fulfill Dreams D. Note or Phone, Your Own Choice D Homeownership has let us down. For generations, Americans believed that owning a home was undoubtedly 英语第 7 页（共 12 页） B. too shy to flatter others D. too concerned about what others think
65. It can be learned from the last paragraph that ______.
good. Our political leaders hammered home the point. Franklin Roosevelt held that a country of homeowners was “unconquerable.” Homeownership could even save babies, save children, save families and save America. A house with a lawn and a fence wasn’t just a nice place to live in or a risk-free investment; it was a way to transform a nation. No wonder leaders of all political types wanted to spend more than $100 billion a year on subsidies and tax breaks to encourage people to buy. But the dark side of homeownership is now all too apparent: Indeed, easy lending stimulated by the cult of homeownership may have triggered the financial crisis. Housing remains a drag on the economy. Existing-home sales in April dropped 27% from the prior month, worsening fears of a double-dip. And all that is just the obvious tale of a housing bubble and what happened when it popped. The real story is deeper and darker still. For the better part of a century, politics, industry and culture lined up to create a fetish of the idea of buying a house. Homeownership has done plenty of good over the decades; it has provided stability to tens of millions of families. Yet by idealizing the act of buying a home, we have ignored the downsides. In the bubble years, lending standards slipped dramatically, allowing many Americans to put far too much of their income into paying for their housing. And we ignored longer-term phenomena too. Homeownership contributed to the hollowing out of cities and kept renters out of the best neighborhoods. It fed America’s overuse of energy and oil. It made it more difficult for those who had lost a job to find another. Perhaps worst of all, it helped us become casually self-deceiving: By telling ourselves that homeownership was a pathway to wealth and stable communities and better test scores, we avoided dealing with these frightening issues head-on. Now, as the U.S. recovers from the biggest housing bust（破产）since the Great Depression, it is time to rethink how realistic our expectations of homeownership are—and how much money we want to spend chasing them. Many argue that homeownership should not be a goal pursued at all costs. 67. Political leaders wanted to spend money encouraging people to buy houses because ______. A. owning a home was undoubtedly good B. homeownership was unconquerable C. houses could save families and America D. homeownership could shape a country 68. The underlined sentence in Para. 2 means ______. A. homeownership has quite a lot of bad effects B. there might be another housing breakdown in the U.S. C. the existing-home sales will keep decreasing in the U.S. D. the result of homeownership is much worse than it appears 69. It can be inferred from Para. 3 that ______. A. it is hard for Americans to get a home loan B. it is the way to wealth to have one’s own house C. many Americans choose to live out of urban areas D. homeownership has made many people out of work 70. What is the author’s attitude towards homeownership? A. Favorable. B. Ambiguous. C. Cautious. 英语第 8 页（共 12 页） D. Optimistic.
第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的七个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。 “Look it up in the dictionary” is the usual comment when people are in doubt about the meaning or spelling of a word. Dictionaries are considered the final authority on these matters as well as on pronunciations and other facts about a word. Until a few hundred years ago, however, people could not “look it up” because there were no English dictionaries. The ancient Greeks and Romans and the scholars of the Middle Ages had made lists of Latin and Greek words. 71 The first great English dictionary listing both common and uncommon words was written by Samuel Johnson in 1755. In America, the most famous name in dictionary writing is that of Noah Webster. He stressed American rather than British ways of speaking. His great dictionary, which first appeared in 1828, has been republished many times. 73 72 The latest edition is still considered “the” dictionary. It defines over 450,000 words, The huge ones that rest on stands in libraries are called unabridged, meaning “not shortened.” including radar, television and many others undreamed of by Webster. They tell not only a word’s meaning and spelling but also its pronunciation, origin, history, part of speech, grammatical forms, and ways of use. The smaller ones do not provide all this information. 74 A bilingual dictionary, such as a Spanish-English dictionary, translates words from one language into another. A thesaurus lists other words that mean the same as each listed word. A gazetteer lists place names, and a glossary is a small dictionary in a book defining technical words in that book. There are also dictionaries of scientific terms and ones on many other topics. There is even a dictionary of slang. The dictionary is one of our most valuable language tools. A. Each time, it has been updated. B. General dictionaries are not the only kind. C. Thus there are many kinds of special dictionaries. D. In a general dictionary, each word may have multiple meanings. E. Dictionaries that list all kinds of words are known as general dictionaries. F. Over the previous 150 years more than 20 dictionaries had been published. G. But it was not until 1604 that a book of uncommon English words appeared. 英语第 9 页（共 12 页） 75

三、Possible Version 1 In the picture, along the tracks come three runners. The one who takes the lead wears a smile on his face, despite the great distance he has covered. The other two, with sweat streaming down their faces, are clearly tired from running. What the picture tries to convey is that success belongs to those who can keep up a good state of mind faced with life challenges. The smile on the face of the runner in the lead suggests that he enjoys the race, regardless of the hard work he has to devote. This definitely makes him stand out among the other competitors, who wear serious and painted expressions on their faces. Life is sometimes like a race with tracks stretching long. A good state of mind can actually bring out our best. Possible Version 2 In the picture, three boys are running along the tracks. The first boy is running with ease and confidence. The last boy falls far behind, but he is still going all out for the race, with his teeth clenched. 英语第 14 页（共 12 页）
It dawns on me that whatever situation we find ourselves in, never should we lose hope but press ahead. Standing a slim chance of catching up with the other two ahead of him, the persistent boy in the last place shows no sign of giving up and works even harder. His perseverance demonstrates a profound meaning in life. It often happens that hard as we may try, our efforts do not yield satisfying results. However, as long as we persevere in our determination and efforts, we are the champion of our own life “race”.
