ESSAY
Time 25 minutes Time—25 minut Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below. Most of us tend to find rules, limits, and restraints irritating. We want to be free of anything that limits our choices. But limitations protect us. Without limitations on our behavior, too many of us will act without regard to the consequences for ourselves, for others, and for the future. Limitations contribute to, rather than take aw ay from, our overall happiness. Assignment: Do rules and limitations contribute to a person’s happiness? Plan and write an essay sig in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations. Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below. People today seem to spend most of their free time being passively entertained: they just sit on the couch and watch movies or television or sporting events. This is mainly because they use up all their energy at work or at school. If they had more time and energy to devote to activities outside of work or school, you can be sure they would enjoy more creative and active pursuits during their free lime. Assignment: If people worked less, would they be more creative and active during their free time? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations. Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below. While serious thinking about important matters may disturb people in the short term, it benefits them immeasurably in the long term. Only by confronting unpleasant truths and by weighing both sides of complex issues can people understand the facts—whether in history, politics, literature, or their own lives—and make appropriate decisions. People may find it difficult or uncomfortable to think seriously about important matters, but not doing so means that they are leading lives without meaning or purpose. Assignment: Does every individual have an obligation to think seriously about important matters, even when doing so may be difficult? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations. Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below. Many people think that success is impossible without help and support from others. They believe that even the strongest and most successful leaders need advisers to define their goals, and followers to carry out their plans. Real success, however, cannot be claimed by those who need others to solve their problems and help them confront obstacles. Only those whose accomplishments are truly their: own can claim to be successful. Assignment: Is real success achieved only by people who accomplish goals and solve problems 人人网 “SAT 备考”公共主页制作, 更多备考信息关注 http://page.renren.com/600932666/index

(A) superfluous (B) voracious (C) obstreperous (D) duplicitous (E) incredulous Questions 9-12 are based on the following passages. Passage 1 The power of role-playing video games resides in the ways in which they meld learning and identity. A player’s taking on the identity of a character in a game constitutes Line a form of identification with the virtual character’s world, 5 story, and perspectives. The player projects his or her own hopes, values, and fears onto the character that he or she is co-creating with the video game’s designers. Doing so allows the player to imagine a new identity born at the intersection of the player’s real-world identities and 10 the identity of the character. This new identity speaks to, and possibly transforms, the player’s values. Passage 2 Role-playing video games offer us many different contexts for presenting ourselves. Those possibilities are particularly important for adolescents because they offer 15 what psychologist Erik Erikson describes as a moratorium —a safe space for the personal experimentation that is so crucial in adolescent development. But some people who gain fluency in expressing multiple aspects of self may find it harder to develop authentic selves. Children who 20 write narratives for the characters they play may grow up with too little experience in how to share their real feelings with other people. Role-playing video games have made it possible to have the illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship. 9.Both passages suggest that video games (A) are underutilized as educational tools (B) negatively influence psychological development (C) rely on a common set of characters and situations (D) allow players to experience alternative identities (E) mirror experiences players are likely to have in real life

11.Which best describes the relationship between the two passages? (A) Passage 1 offers an analysis of an activity that Passage 2 suggests may be harmful. (B) Passage 1 mounts an ardent defense of a hobby that Passage 2 portrays as frivolous. (C) Passage 1 concedes that a position endorsed by Passage 2 has some validity. (D) Passage 1 provides a social explanation for a phenomenon that Passage 2 argues is best understood psychologically. (E) Passage 1 gives a simplified account of an experience that Passage 2 claims is extremely complex. 12.Both authors make the point that players of video games are (A) most often children and teens (B) sometimes changed by the games they play (C) typically dedicated to principles of fair play (D) generally representative of society as a whole (E) usually good at separating their real and virtual lives Questions 13-25 are bused on the fallowing passage. 13After segregationist practices barred Black American singer Marian Anderson from a scheduled Washington, D.C., performance in 1939, the federal government sponsored her in a public concert on Easier Sunday. In this adaptation from a 2003 novel, Delia, a Black American voice student, arrives for that convert. She steps off the train into a capital huddling under blustery April. She half-expects the cherry trees to greet her right inside Union Station. The coffered barrel vault arches over her, a fading neoclassical cathedral to transportation that she steps through, making herself small, invisible. She moves through the crowd with light, effacing steps, waiting for someone to challenge her right to be here. Washington: every fortunate Philadelphia schoolgirl’s field trip, but it has taken Delia until twenty to see the point of visiting. She heads out of the station and bears southwest. She nods toward Howard University, her father’s school, where he suggested she go make something of herself. The Capitol rises up on her left, more unreal in life than in the thousands of silver images she grew up suspecting. The building that now stands open to Black people again.1 after a generation, bends the very air around it. She can’t stop looking. She walks into the waking spring, the river of moving bodies, giggling even as she hushes herself up.

The whole city is a postcard panorama. Like being inside a grade-school civics text. Today, at least, the monument-flanked boulevards How with people of all races. The group from Union Baptist Church told her to look for them up front on the left, near the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. She has only to hook right, on Constitution Avenue, to see how naive those plans were. There’ll be no rendezvous today. To the west, a crowd gathers, too dense and ecstatic to penetrate. Delia Daley looks out over the carpet of people, more people than she knew existed. Her steps slow as she slips in behind the mile-long crowd. All in front of her, the decades-long Great Migration2 comes home. She feels the danger, right down her spine. A crowd this size could trample her without anyone noticing. But the prize lies at the other end of this gliding crush. She breathes in, forcing her diaphragm down—support, appoggio!—and plunges in. Something here, a thing more than music, is kicking in the womb. Something no one could have named two months ago now rises up, sucking in its first stunned breaths. Just past Delia in the press of bodies, a high schooler—though from the look of her, high school is a vanished dream—spins around, flashing, to catch the eye of anyone who’ll look at her, a look of delivery that has waited lifetimes. Delia pushes deeper into the sea, her throat, like a pennant, unfurling. Her larynx drops, the release her voice teacher Lugati has been hounding her these last ten months to find. The lock opens and a feeling descends on her— confirmation of her chosen life. She’s on her appointed track, she and her people. Each will find her only way forward. She wants to kick back and call out, as so many around her are already doing, White people within earshot or no. This is mil a concert. It’s a revival meeting, a national baptism, the riverbanks flooded with waves of expectation. Inside this crowd, she feels the best kind of invisible. The slate-colored combed-silk dress that serves so well for Philadelphia concerts is all wrong here, too sleek by half, her hemline missing low by a full two inches. But no one marks her except with pleasure. The crowd condenses. It’s standing room only, flowing the length of the reflecting pool and down West Potomac

Park. The floor of this church is grass. The columns of this nave are budding trees. The vault above, an Easter sky. The deeper Delia wades in toward the speck of grand piano, the stickpin corsage of microphones where her idol will stand, the thicker this celebration. The press of massed desire lifts and deposits her, helpless, a hundred yards upstream, facing the Tidal Basin. Schoolbook cherry trees swim up to fill her eyes, their blossoms mad. They wave the dazzle of their pollen bait and, in this snowstorm of petals, fuse with every Easter when they ever unfolded their promissory color. And what color is this flocking people? She’s forgotten even to gauge. She never steps out in a public place without carefully averaging the color around her, the measure of her relative safely. But this crowd wavers like a horizon-long bolt of crushed velvet. Its tone changes with every turn of light and lilt of her head. A mixed crowd, the first she’s ever walked in, American. Both people are here in abundance, each waiting for the sounds that will fill their own patent lack. No one can be barred from this endless ground floor.

6.As presented in the opening sentence, the task of the oceanographers is most similar to that of (A) lawyers presenting a case to a jury (B) explorers climbing a previously unseated mountain (C) investigators trying to solve a mystery (D) doctors performing delicate surgery (E) researchers applying a new methodology 7.Lines 6-7 (“These days…water”) serve primarily to (A) cite an authority (B) suggest an option (C) defend a position (D) provide a transition (E) offer a qualification Questions 8-9 are based on the following passage. follow Many professional musicians receive conservatory training in order to become well-grounded in formal theory and instrumental technique; however, when we approach Line jazz we are entering quite a different sphere of training. 5 Here it is more meaningful to speak of apprenticeship, ordeals, initiation ceremonies, and rebirth. For after the jazz musician has learned the fundamentals of an instrument and the standard techniques of jazz, such as intonations and traditional styles, the musician must then find his or her 10 soul. All this through achieving that subtle identification between the instrument and the musician’s deepest drives, which will allow for the expression of each artist’s distinctive voice. 8.Which generalization about jazz training is most directly supported by the passage? (A) Its value is difficult to assess. (B) Its focus on formal technique is excessive. (C) It is a demanding process. (D) It should precede conservatory training. (E) It has been the source of much controversy. 9.Lines 10-11 (“All…voice”) primarily emphasize which point about jazz? (A) Jazz is hard to define and varies greatly among performers. (B) Years of training are needed to hone a jazz musician’s skills. 人人网 “SAT 备考”公共主页制作, 更多备考信息关注 http://page.renren.com/600932666/index

(C) Listening to jazz has clinically therapeutic value. (D) Jazz performances are comparable to paintings and sculptures. (E) Playing jazz is a highly personal and creative activity. Questions 10-15 are based on the following passage. This passage is taken from the introduction to a 1987 sociological study of the use of nighttime hours. We are good at inventing ways to enlarge our realm. Repeatedly we find methods of spreading farther. If an element is forbidding, we devise a means to master it. Reaching the continental shores, we developed shipbuilding and navigational skills in order to cross oceans. Shivering at arctic weather, we designed fur clothing and snug shelters in order to edge northward. And, having first occupied much of the usable space in the world, we are filling its usable time. Although being wakeful at night flouted our natural rhythms, we developed artificial lighting that let us be active after dark. An era is now under way in which we are replacing our cyclic community with activities that never stop. There is widespread factory shift work. Airports, gasoline stations, hotels, restaurants, and broadcasters operate incessantly. Data-processing departments of insurance companies and banks are astir all night. Meanwhile, isolated individuals bend over books and papers on desks in their homes, watch television after midnight, or walk in the streets and listen to the night breathe. This extension across all hours of the day resembles our spreading across the face of the Earth, Look at both trends from enough perspective in distance and time and they appear alike. Hover far above the planet and watch it as it spins throughout the eras. With the planet’s surface in daylight, little human settlements can be seen to grow larger as the years go by and small extensions appear at their outskirts. Watch the surface when it is in night and at first some pinpoints of light flicker for a while and then go out. After ages pass, those lights become stronger; they stay on longer, and other glimmerings appear nearby. Day and night, over thousands of years, reveal to us widening networks of human settlements and illumination being prolonged after dark. The surface is not uniformly occupied. The hours are not uniformly lit. But both are advancing in order. Both forms of expansion are frontiers. A frontier is a

new source of resources that people use for subsistence or for profit. It is also a safety valve for people who feel confined. They disperse in response to pressures at home and to appealing opportunities elsewhere. Now, venturing into the night, we have the same motives as our predecessors who migrated geographically. The daytime is too crowded. Its carrying capacity is being strained, and still it does not yield all that the community wants. The chance to exploit facilities that are left idle also arouses our initiative to use more of the night. Using the same space more of the time is a way to multiply its capacity. Some people dislike the commotion of the day and crave the serenity of night. Others look to it to better themselves economically. It is no accident that personal motives for relief and opportunity are similar to the causes of expansion for the community as a whole. Those are the age-old forces behind all migrations.

(A) Conducting evening classes in public school buildings (B) Increasing the number of night guards in a museum (C) Adding more buildings to a factory complex (D) Keeping municipal offices open during the lunch hour (E) Enforcing curfew laws in residential neighborhoods Questions 16-23 are based on the following passage. This passage, adapted from a 1995 book about whales, was written by a biologist. Conducting scientific research on this most challenging of groups can be compared to viewing a whale through a keyhole. The hulk of the animal glides past from time to time while we try desperately to figure out what on earth it is. In spite of lots of sparks and smoke, we have so far accomplished little more than a small enlargement of this keyhole. Someday—perhaps in the next hundred years we may have a picture-window-sized keyhole and will finally see what the whole whale looks like. But even then the enigma of the whale will stand, undecoded, before us. I have been studying whales continuously since 1967. One of the delights of that experience has been discovering that there is no way to get a whale to adopt a human timescale. This is no more possible than it would be for a human to adopt a weasel’s speed of living. Whales are unhurriable. It’s one of their most endearing trails. Nowhere is this more engagingly seen than in trying to figure out what a whale is doing when what you are watching is, for example, play, but you have not yet figured that out. The difficulty comes from the fact that one of the major clues to the function of a behavior pattern is the rhythm of its occurrence. Because we commonly associate play with quick motions, the key to being able to recognize play in whales is learning to think differently—in terms

of long, slow rhythms, where things occur very lingeringly (it would be a comparable problem to learn to recognize play in snails, or sloths, or tortoises). To understand whales one must be deeply patient, must slow way down and be content to observe passively for a long time. Only at the end of a day may one say to oneself. “Now let me see; what did I see? Well, I saw the whale do this…and then it did this…and then this…and then…For heaven’s sake, it was play I was looking at.” In order to observe whales, you must be willing to set your metronome on adagio1. Then, to understand what you have seen, you must fast-forward through your observations by setting your metronome on allegro2. During the first ten years of my career in biology, I was an experimentalist. I worked in neurophysiology and behavior and did experiments on how bats determine the direction from which sound is coming, how owls locate their prey in total darkness by hearing it. and how moths determine the direction from which a bat is approaching (so they can make evasive maneuvers to avoid it). When I started studying whales—a group of species upon which it is all but impossible to experiment—I worried whether I would find the work stimulating enough or whether it would seem boring simply observing, without ever being able to manipulate anything or do an experiment. I had enjoyed experimental work—at that time of my life I liked manipulating things—yet I had very little idea of how to make good, passive field observations. But I soon appreciated the greater rewards of finding things out through passive observations. I soon realized that the constraints posed by passive observation can be more challenging than those posed by experimental work. It is rather like the constraints of the sonnet form, which make composing poetry exquisitely challenging. Passive observation requires a subtler way of thinking, and the result can be sonnets rather than ballads, 1at a slow tempo 2at a brisk lively tempo

Passage 1 is adapted from a 2006 book by a journalist. 人人网 “SAT 备考”公共主页制作, 更多备考信息关注 http://page.renren.com/600932666/index

Passage 2 presents the ideas of an authority on Paleolithic cave images.
Passage 1 There is still no grand theory of what the ancient paintings of animals on the cave walls mean. That is frustrating for scientists and amateurs alike, since as works of art the paintings communicate directly and supremely well. The cave painters may or may not have had the idea of art as we understand it, but when they chose to draw an appealing line instead of an awkward one, to create paintings that had graceful lines, subtle color, and precise perspective, they were thinking and acting like artists trying to create art in our sense of the word. That’s why it is valid for us to respond to cave paintings as art and not merely as archaeological evidence, although they are certainly that as well. Often reproduced in textbooks as the beginnings of Western art, animal cave paintings—die multicolored and stylized horses, the pride of hunting lions with their eyes ablaze, the weighty yet delicately curving bison—all prove that beauty is truly eternal. And that beauty is amplified because, against all logic, the paintings seem familiar as well, close to us in time despite being as far from us in time as any art could possibly be. How is it that they could be locked away in caves, unknown or misunderstood, for eons and yet, once discovered, fit naturally in the Western cultural tradition? The immediacy of the paintings, despite their great antiquity and mysteriousness, powerfully affects everyone who sees them. After their beauty, the first thing everyone notices about the cave paintings is that they are repetitive. The same animals in the same or similar poses appear again and again in cave after cave, regardless of the date of the paintings. Each species is painted according to convention. The conventions change somewhat over time, but still they are there. This consistency means that the art in caves is fundamentally conservative. In modem times we almost demand that art attack the social order or mock it or undermine it in some way, and our art changes as the times change. Yet cave art. which is unvarying, must have been a stalwart support of the social order. It sustained society’s beliefs by painting them as unfailing, constant, ever and always the same. And in its role as protector of .society and its institutions, the art was spectacularly successful.

Passage 2 R. Dale Guthrie, a retired professor of zoology at the University of Alaska, is both a professional expert in the large mammals that cavort on the cave walls and a personal 45 enthusiast who has spent 40 years in the Arctic wild tracking and studying their descendants, The Nature of Paleolithic Art. his exhaustive work published in 2005, is nothing less than a labor of love growing out of half a lifetime of experience with wildlife in the far north and 50 two decades of examining most of the thousands of images that make up the entire collection of Paleolithic art. In general, Guthrie views Paleolithic cave imagery as an immensely valuable archive for natural history, and he brings more empiricism to his work than do many other 55 experts. His forensic analyses of fossil handprints in the caves, coupled with his knowledge of animal behavior and hunting, leads him to hypothesize that many of the ancient cave artists were not the Michelangelos of their time, as most art historians have assumed. Instead, many cave 60 artists were teenagers who, too young to hunt but nonetheless fascinated by wildlife, were free to venture into the caves and create hasty, impish doodles “with overlapping, incomplete, and often askew imagery.” These unskilled drawings, according to Guthrie, are rarely 65 reproduced in art books. However, the artists must have been keen observers of the natural world, Guthrie believes: their depiction of animal forms on rock surfaces seems both easy and automatic. Guthrie’s theories are not likely to be accepted by the 70 many scholars who study cave art as the key to unlocking the mysteries of the Paleolithic symbolic worldview. But should Guthrie’s views devalue the artistic power of Paleolithic cave art for the rest of us? Guthrie believes not. For him, the possibility that “adolescent giggles may have 75 echoed in dark cave passages demeans neither artists nor art. Instead, it opens the possibility for us to conceive, with familiar warmth and greater immediacy, the entire range of preserved Paleolithic art.” Art allows us to experience the world as richer and more meaningful than it otherwise 80 would seem. It has been said that no one who studies the cave paintings is able to resist a yearning for communion with their creators. The identity of those creators is ultimately less significant than our emotional reaction 人人网 “SAT 备考”公共主页制作, 更多备考信息关注 http://page.renren.com/600932666/index
