第二部分 阅读理解 （共两节，满分 40） 第一节（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分）
A To most of us, school means classes, teachers, schedules, grades, and tests. But for the children at Sudbury Valley School in Massachusetts, school is very different. Firstly, there are no lessons. All the children, aged between 4 and 19, do whatever they want. There are no teachers, only “staff members”. The idea behind this is that you do not need to make children learn, because children want to learn anyway. “You do not need to say to three-year-old, ‘Go and explore your environment.’ You can’t stop them!” says Daniel Greenberg, a founder of the school. “But if you make children do what you want all day, they will lose all taste for learning.” At Sudbury Valley School, you will permit children to talk, read, paint, cook, work on computers, study French, play the pia no, climb trees, or just run around. Two boys spent three years just fishing! The other way that Sudbury Valley School is different is that the children can decide the rules. Every week, there is a school meeting where both children and staff have one vote each—even the four-year-olds. They decide the school rules, how to spend the school budget, and even which staff they want and do not want anymore. When the school first opened in 1968, people said it would never work. But today, the school has 200 students, an 80% of its students go on to college. Even the two boys who went fishing all the time have successful careers today. One of them is a musician and the other is a computer scientist. 21. What does the school believe? 中小学最新教育资料
A. Teachers can not teach children well. B. Children learn best when they do what they want to do. C. Learning is for adults—children should only play. D. Children should only learn about one thing at a time. 22. Who has the most power in the school meetings?
A. The older children have more power than the younger children. B. A child has more power than an adult. C. The younger children have more power than the older children. D. Everybody has equal power. 23. What happens to the children after they leave this school? A. They do the same things as children from other schools. B. They have problems getting into college or getting a job. C. They usually do very unusual jobs. D. They are not successful.

C In our culture, the sources of what we call a sense of “mastery”—feeling important and worthwhile—and the sources of what we call a sense of “pleasure”—finding life enjoyable—are not always the same. Women often are told “You can’t have it all.” Sometimes what the speaker really is saying is: “You choose a career, so you can’t expect to have closer relationships or a happy family life.” or “You have a wonderful husband and children—what’s all this about wanting a career?” But women need to understand and develop both aspects（方面）of well-being, if they are to feel good about themselves. Our study shows that, for women, well-being（康乐）has two aspects. One is mastery, which includes self-respect, a sense of control over your life, and low levels of anxiety and depression. Mastery is closely related t o the “doing” side of life, to work and activity. Pleasure is the other aspect, and it is made up of happiness, satisfaction and optimism. It is linked more closely to the “feeling” side of life. The two are independent of each other. A woman could be high in mastery and low in pleasure, and vice versa（反 之亦然）. For example, a woman who has a good job, but whose mother has jus t died, might be feeling very good about herself and in control of her work life, but the pleasure side could be damaged for a time. The concepts of mastery and pleasure can help us identify the sources of well-being for women, and correct past mistakes. In the past, women were encouraged to look only at the feeling side of life as the source of all well-being. But we know that both mastery and pleasure are important. And mastery seems to be achieved largely through work. In our study, all the groups of employed women are valued significantly higher in mastery than women who are not employed. A woman’s well-being is developed when she takes on multiple（多项的）roles. At least by middle adulthood, the women who are involved in a combination of roles—marriages, motherhood, and employment—are the highest in well-being, in spite of warnings about stress and strain. 28. It can be inferred from the first paragraph that ______. A. a sense of “mastery” and a sense of “pleasure” are both necessary to women 中小学最新教育资料
B. for women, a sense of “pleasure” is more important than a sense of “mastery”
C. women can’t have a sense of “mastery” and a sense of “pleasure” at the same time
D. for women, a sense of “mastery” is more important than a sense of “pleasure”
29. The author’s attitude towards women having a career is ______.
B. neutral （中立） C. positive D. realistic

A. she will be more successful in her career
B. her life will be richer and more meaningful
C. her chances of getting promoted will be greater
D. it will be easier for her to overcome stress and strain
31. The most appropriate title for the passage would be ______.

B. Sources of Mastery and Pleasure
C. Multiple Roles of Women in Society
D.Two Aspects of Women’s Well-Being
Walking in daffodils(水仙花) on her farm in Camden, US, Roxane Daniel greets different

Nineteen years ago when money was needed to repair the railroad station in Camden, Daniel
got an idea. The idea has developed into the Camden Daffodil Festival organized by the town.

“The station needed repairing, and I had given all the money we could afford to give.”

inviting flower lovers to her farm.
Each spring, more and more people attend the festival, along with the daffodils and
attractions. Visitors get on buses to tour several flower gardens and historic homes. Other
festival attractions include an art show and storytelling.
Money from the Daffodil Festival is used to support projects of the Historical Society,
and downtown wall paintings, benches and flower boxes.
“Because of Roxane’s idea and her interest in her community, the festival benefits
so many,” says Sammie Briery, 68, who has 1,400 daffodils in her own front yard. “The
whole town has been caught up in the fun and excitement of having so many visitors.”
