He has an intuitive(直觉的) knowledge of what is important in life. When we go out he looks people in the eyes, calls them by name, and shares his smile far more easily than I do. He goes through life with a soul full of love, joy and kindness that he gives to everyone he meets. He makes others feel better. He makes each day shine brighter. He makes this world more beautiful just by being in it. He may not understand everything in life, but he knows how to live happily and lovingly. He shows me everyday that life is simple. It is we who make it complicated. You see, life is just the choices we make each day. We can choose to love or we can choose to be afraid. We can choose to help or we can choose to turn away. We can choose to forgive or we can choose to hate. We can choose to be kind or we can choose to be cruel. We can choose to trust or we can choose to be suspicious. We can choose to give or we can choose to take. We can choose to laugh or we can choose to cry. We can choose to smile or we can choose to stress. We can choose to shine our souls or we can choose to dwell in darkness. My son knows these choices by heart and always makes the right ones. I hope to one day get there as well. Until then I will do my best to live simply, to be wise, and to choose well. Until then I will do my best to love family, myself, and others. May you do the same. 21.

Six years later, the non-profit group is building a new school somewhere every 90 hours. It has helped more than 22,000 children in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It all started when Adam Braun was a college student. He was visiting India when a boy stopped him on the street, the boy asked for money. Mr. Braun asked the boy what he would want, if he could have anything in the world. “I thought the answer was going to be a house or a car or a boat. However, his answer was a pencil. So I gave him my pencil and he just lit up with joy. I realized he never had been to a school before, and that was the reality for 57 million children around the world,” Braun said, Adam Braun started working in finance after he graduated from college. But he never forgot the boy and the problem he represented. Mr. Braun raised money for his project by using social media. He paid for building the first Pencils of Promise school, in Laos, five years ago. Since then, his group has helped pay for more than 200 schools in rural areas of Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Ghana. Adam Braun decided to expand his organization’s work beyond elementary school level. Pencils of Promise developed financial plans to help students continue on to secondary school and teacher training. “We are r eally serious about making sure that the programs are not just beautiful photos and videos of kids, but that we are actually seeing incredible results in the classroom. And if we are not seeing results, then we need to change our programs. That’s why our kids in Pencils of Promise schools progress from one grade to the next at two times the national average,” Braun said, 28. Pencils of Promise aims at __________. A. making all kids educated B. collecting money for poor families C. setting up new schools around the world D. helping more students to return to school 29.

The last paragraph implies _________ . A. Braun will change his goal B. the Pencils of Promise’s plan C. the difficulty Braun is facing now D. the Pencils of Promise’s achievement D LONDON-The news that a Chinese maths textbook will be introduced into Britain this summer has again caught the eyes of people in the education field, as well as the public, since the first group of maths teachers from China's Shanghai took part in an exchange project in Britain last year. The supplementary textbook, One Lesson One Exercise, is a popular book for students in Shanghai for more than 20 years. Earlier on Thursday, the publisher East China Normal University Press said, in January, it signed an agreement with HarperCollins to publish an English version of the book this summer in Britain, which would be named as One Lesson One Exercise of Shanghai Maths. It said experts "familiar with both Chinese textbooks and British educational conditions are compiling(编辑 ) the maths section on the basis of the pre-existing domestic edition", and some changes would be made as the education systems of the two countries are different. However, the difficulty won't be reduced. So far, the number of schools and students who will use this textbook is unknown. Britain's Department for Education said, at this stage, it's a matte r for the publishing company, and won't make any comments on this. A Chi nese man who required anonymous（匿名的） said he had noticed a very interesting phenomenon in his daughter's school and other schools in London, that most of Chinese students, even Asian students can get a higher scores than others in maths. He said he learnt the news of Shanghai textbook on the Internet, but he thought it's very complicated to judge whether the action would be good or bad for students in Britain. "The introduction of the Shanghai textbook may play a part in improving local students' numeracy （计算能力） skills, however, I think local maths lessons place more focus on developing students' ability of inference and logical thinking, rather than the numeracy skills. They'd like to complete maths problems by tools, but not in particular require students to master of numeracy," he said. 32. The best title for the news report can be “ .” A. One Lesson One Exercise is a popular book B. Chinese math textbook to be introduced into Britain C. Experts are compiling the Chinese math textbook D. The cultural and educational exchanges between China and Britain 33. What can we learn from what the Chinese man said in Para. 4 ? A. The majority of Asian students’ practical ability is higher. B. British students can adapt to the Chinese teaching ways.
C. Most of the Chinese students can learn maths better than others. D. It will surely benefit British students to use the Shanghai textbook. 34. Why would some changes be made when compiling the textbook? A. Because some of the contents of the textbook are out of date. B. Because the textbook is a little difficult for British students. C. Because the company wants to improve the quality of the book. D. Because education systems of the two countries are different. 35.The possible meaning of the underlined word “ supplementary ” in Para. 2 is “ ”. A. added to something B. far away in distance or time C. having relative freedom of movement D. tending to accept things without much thought 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。 Five tips for helping you stay away from “holiday fat” It’s easy to gain a few pounds over holidays, especially for the Chinese as the Spring Festival and its component family feasting are nearing. To get rid of those “holiday fat”,however, is not that easy. Following is what you are supposed to do to avoid putting on extra weight. Stay active 36 Time is spent doing holiday errands(使命) ，which makes us more tired, less motivated, and not wanting to stick to our routine. Best thing to do is to stick to your regular schedule. Not only will it help keep weight gain down, it will give you more energy and it will reduce your stress. Don’t starve yourself Many people think before attending new year feast, they should go hungry all day so that they can “afford” the calories later on. The truth is you may be so hungry that you will forget about any sense of the word moderation （适度）or control. 37 38 There are some healthy options that you can eat during the holidays. For the cookers of the family, really think about the ingredients that you normally use and then think about how you can make the dish healthier. Be sure to sleep well 39 Some studies have shown that losing sleep can affect your metabolism （新陈 代谢）and the secretion of cortisol, one hormone that regulates appetite（胃口）. Think of a good night’s sleep as a necessity (much like oxygen) to keep you sane and keep your stress and hormone levels in check. Do some exercise Working out may seem like the last thing you have time for, but it ’s essential for keeping your weight in check and your stress at manageable levels. 40 In this case, you work more than one muscle group at the same time.
A. B. C. D. E. F. G.
Choose healthy recipes Losing sleep makes you sleepy. The best way is to eat as much as you can. Try circuit training and focus on using compound exercises. Lack of sleep not only leads to stress, it can also lead to weight gain. One of the major causes of weight gain during the holidays is lack of activity. The right thing to do is to make sure to eat your normal and healthy meals before the New Year feast.
