Better still, perhaps, is the practice of reading it twice, once at the beginning of the discussion and once at the end. All discussions of poetry are, in
fact, preparations for reading it aloud, and the reading of the poem is, finally, the most telling "interpretation" of it, suggesting tone, rhythm, and meaning all at once. Hearing a poet read the work in his or her own voice, on records or on films, is obviously a special reward. But even those aids to teaching cannot replace the student and the teacher reading it or, best of all, reciting(背诵) it. I have come to think, in fact, that time spent reading a poem aloud is much more important than analyzing it, if there isn't time for both. I think one of our goals as teachers of English is to have students love poetry. Poetry is a criticism of life, and a heightening(提升) of life. It is an approach to the truth of feeling, and it can save your life. I am not saying that every English teacher must teach poetry. Those who don't like it should not be forced to put that dislike on anyone else. But those who do teach poetry must keep in mind a few things about its essential nature, about its sound as well as its sense, and they must make room in the classroom for hearing poetry as well as thinking about it. 21. To have a better understanding of a poem, one should_______. A. discuss it with others B. analyze it by oneself C. copy it down in a notebook D. practice reading it aloud 22. According to the writer, one of the purposes of teaching English is to get students______. A. to understand life B. to enjoy poetry C. to become teachers D. to become poets 23. The underlined word "make room "( in the last paragraph) probably means _______. A. to build a booth B. to provide equipment C. to leave a certain amount of time D. to set aside enough space 24. The best title of the passage may be________. A. Reading Poems Aloud B. Analyzing Poems C. Discussing Poems D. Learning English B The artist, Hong Xuguang was born in Wendeng, east China’s Shandong Province, in 1959. In 1983, he graduated from Hubei Fine Arts Institute ( HFAI), majoring in Chinese painting before taking up a position as an art teacher at a university in the south for 10 years. Hong, with a thirst for learning, left China for Europe in the 1990s to further his studies over the course of eight years. During this time he visited many cities, absorbing Western culture as well as classic and modern art. It was at the Technical University of Munich(TUM) that he first came to show an interest in graphic(书画的) composition, which came to play a significant part in his later paintings. To broaden his horizons, Hong traveled to Australia and Singapore to attend advanced studies. During this time the artist discovered a common lack of knowledge
concerning Chinese ink painting. "In many foreigners’ eyes, all such work looks alike. For this reason, European galleries seldom display ink paintings. I think there is a cross-cultural obstacle. " Hong stressed. In 2000, the artist created a series of abstract ink paintings based on the theme Variations (变奏曲)，developing a new style in the process. "Variations normally refer to a set of short musical pieces, repeated and developed in alternate form based around a central theme." Hong said. Similarly, he used graphic elements such as point, line and depth to describe various views on the same theme. In 2007, he was honored at the An Entrance to Classic of Chinese Water-Ink Painting ceremony while in 2008; his paintings were collected in the Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy Dictionary. Since 2009, Hong has resided in Beijing, a center of culture and art where he feels like a fish in water, spending much time in sketching lotus flowers. In 2011, Hong showed an ink painting Harmonious Flourishing Time of Colored Lotus on a CCTV show as a representative work of contemporary Chinese art. In December 2012, Hong was listed for the nation-wide Huaxia Star of Chinese painting and calligraphy master contest. 25. Which is the right order of events in Hong ’s life? ①He left China for Europe to further his studies. ②He has resided in Beijing. ③His paintings were collected in Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy Dictionary. ④He developed a new painting style. A.②①④③ B. ②④③① C. ①②④③ D.①④③② 26. What can we learn about Hong Xuguang? A. He once worked as a teacher for ten years. B. He graduated from the Technical University of Munich. C. He thought all Chinese ink paintings look alike. D. He hates to use graphic elements to describe views on the same topic. 27. What’s the main idea of the passage? A. The development of ink painting. B. A brief introduction to artist Hong Xuguang ’s life and achievements. C. The painting style of artist Hong Xuguang. D. The master pieces of artist Hong Xuguang. 28. The passage is organized by______. A. cause and effect B. comparison and contrast C. time and events D. definition and classification C Mumbai, India—The children in their party clothes on the stage were very excited when they received the award. And the two of them said, "It's unbelievable!" Nine-year-old, Rubina Ali, and Azharuddin Ismail, 10, were living a very different life and obviously loving every minute of it. The two, some of the child stars of the
Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire (《贫民窟的百万富翁》) movie, know the Indian slums very well. That was where they grew up, and it is where they will return at the end of their Hollywood dream trip. But before going back home, there was an interview with the host, Ryan Seacrest. During the interview they smiled and repeated their disbelief in what was happening to them. To their surprise, their movie won first place in the Oscars. When the two received the award, it was late morning in the children's home city of Mumbai, where family, friends and many fellow residents of the slums watched the result from Hollywood. "I don't really know what the Oscars are," Rubina's mother said, "I'm just glad my daughter looks happy, though she told me she missed Indian food." "Our children lead a dog's life," Rubina's mother said, pointing out the rubbish everywhere, the open drains(下水道) and the lack of education opportunities. In a few days they will be back in Mumbai and back in the slums which are their home. Fortunately, according to media reports, the movie's director, Danny Boyle, has promised to help the children chosen from the slum and make sure they will go to a proper school. The two don't need to worry about their daily lives because of the Oscar success of Slumdog Millionaire. But the poverty and lack of opportunity—the central theme of the movie—is always all around. 29. Which of the following is NOT true about the two children? A. They were the only two child stars in the movie, Slumdog Millionaire. B. They had been having a difficult life in India. C. They were interviewed before they went back home. D.They were both excited about receiving the award nation-wide. 30. What can we infer from the text? A. The two children have played in other movies before. B. Rubina may not get used to the American food. C. Rubina's mother also went to Hollywood. D. They will travel to other countries before returning home. 31. What will happen to the two children after they return to India? A. They will go back to the miserable life. B. They will play in movies as famous actors. C. They will have a better education. D. They will leave school to learn acting. 32. According to the author, the value of the movie is that ______.

Working in a team can be rewarding, but at times it can be difficult. To create a successful team, effective communication methods are necessary. Here we've outlined some ways to avoid some common team mistakes as well as some helpful advice. 1. Communicate 36 Letting bad feelings brew(酝酿) will only make you feel bad and want to isolate yourself from the group. Not only does it feel good to get the bad feelings out, but it will be better for the team in the long run. 2. 37 People in your group will lose respect for you if you're constantly blaming others for not meeting deadlines. Group members understand if you have a heavy workload and aren’t able to meet a deadline. Saying something like, "I'm really sorry, but I'll get it to you by the end of today." will earn you a lot more respect than trying to make it seem like it's everyone else's fault that you missed your deadline. 3. Support group member's ideas If a teammate suggests something, always consider it! 38 And this makes you a good team member. After all, nobody likes a know-it-all. 4. Listen Actively Look at the person who’s speaking to you, nod, ask questions and acknowledge what's said by paraphrasing points that have been made. If you're unclear about something that's been said, ask for more information to clear up any confusion before moving on. Effective communication is a vital part of any team. 39 5. Get Involved Share suggestions, ideas, solutions and proposals with your team members. Take the time to help your fellow teammates. You can guarantee there will be a time in the future when you'll need some help or advice. 40 A. Don't Blame Others B. Avoid showing off C. Thus, the value of good listening skills shouldn't be underestimated（低估）. D. Have faith that people will recognize when good work is being done. E. If you have a problem with someone in your group, talk to him about it. F. And if you've helped them in the past, they'll be more than happy to lend a helping hand. G. Considering the group's ideas shows you're interested in other people's ideas, not just your own. 第三部分：英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完型填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分) I grew up poor — living with six brothers, three sisters and my mother.

The reason is that it takes less time to understand the whole story. Besides, the film is usually more interesting, and it is easier to follow. Some others have just the opposite opinion. They think that they can get more detailed information from the original. Meanwhile, the language in the book is possibly more lively and beautiful. Personally, I agree with the second view. Actually I have more reasons for it. I think I can stay at home, reading quietly in a situation of my own, and what’s more, I am able to better understand the author’s ideas. In a word, to read the original work is better than to see the film based on it.
