    Many American presidents in the 19th century were born in poor families. They spent their childhood in little wooden rooms. They got little education. Washington and Lincoln, for example, never went to school and taught themselves. Lincoln once did jobs as a worker, a shopkeeper and a post officer in his early years. A larger number of US presidents had experiences in the army. The two best known were Ulysses Grant and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Grant was a general(将军) in the American Civil War. It happened that they came from the same school—West Point Military Academy(西点军校). One may be surprised to learn that both of them didn’t do well in the school. Eisenhower, for example, was fined(罚款) because he broke the rules of the school. 

    The jobs of the US president are tiring. He must keep an eye on everything important which happened both at home and abroad. Every day, a lot of work waited for him to do and he had to make many important decisions. When Franklin Roosevelt was a child, he was once brought to visit President Taft. The old president said to him,

    (    ) 3. What can be inferred(推测) from the passage?

    For years I went to school by bus, so I met many “familiar” strangers. We took the same bus but didn’t know each other’s names. I used to think it was impossible for us to be true friends. How wrong I was! Smiles from the “nameless” people have changed my thoughts.

    The first time on the bus, I saw different faces, we met, greeted and cold faces turned into smiling faces. As days went on, we chatted like old friends. 

    But I felt it a pity that I was unable to set up the same friendship with a silent girl in the front of the bus. Her old clothing suggested that she didn’t have much money, but she always took a cup of water for the driver. I guessed she was a kind girl. But why did she sit in silence instead of talking with us? Why did she never reply to our friendly greetings? Couldn’t she smile?

    Then, one evening, I got the answer. I walked to the park nearby and found the girl sitting alone under a tree, lonely and sad. I greeted her with the same warm smile that I had shown to her all these months, but this time her face turned red with a shy smile. As soon as she began her first words, I understood why she hadn’t spoken to us before. Talking was hard for her.

    I learned her story: Her parents worked hard somewhere. She lived with her disabled grandparents. She said, “I can’t express myself very well. Most of the time, I can’t say what I want to say. I have no friends but… you always smile to me like an angel…so I also want to smile.” That evening, we exchanged our names and we said goodbye like old friends.

    Smile is the key to opening the door of heart; it can break the cold walls in front of us.

    (    ) 1. All the following words can describe the girl Except __________.

          A. silent             B. kind                       C. proud                    D. poor

    (    ) 2. The writer often met the girl __________.

          A. on the bus        B. in the park            C. at school            D. under the tree

    (    ) 3. Which of the following is True?

        A. The girl only talked with the driver.

        B. The girl was too shy to talk with others.

        C. The writer knew the name of the girl that evening.

        D. The writer can’t make friends with those nameless people on the bus now.

    (    ) 4. The main idea of the passage is that __________.

        A. we should help those silent people

        B. smiles can deal with every difficulty we meet

        C. we should smile to the nameless people on the bus

        D. smiles can help us get closer and understand each other better

    Michael Morpurgo is one of Britain's best loved story makers whose book War Horse is taught in school. He made a speech at Book Trust Annual Lecture. When talking about tests, he said that too much testing in schools was taking the joy out of reading for children because it destroyed their confidence and resulted in feelings of shame and disappointment.

    Mr. Morpurgo said testing was "supposed to encourage" all children, whether they passed or not, but his was not the case. "When you fail, it brings a sense of worthlessness. It separates you from those who have passed, rocks confidence, and destroys hopes and dreams." For children who pass, they can have the opportunity to receive the great cultural and material benefits of our society through developing an enjoyment of reading.But for children who fail, they are made to feel that the world of books, stories and ideas is not for them, and they are not clever enough to join that world. It is not the world they belong to, and it is shut off from them forever.

    As the president of Book Trust, Mr. Morpurgo also criticized schools for taking the wonder of stories and playfulness of language. Schools have been teaching reading by turning stories into a series of comprehension and grammar tests, because they insist that measurable(可量化的) outcomes and results are the be-all and end-all of the education process. But blaming (责备)governments or schools is passing the buck --- it is a society as a whole that is responsible for whether its children succeed or fail in education, and everyone should make an effort to ensure that reading itself is a pleasure experience for all children.

    Mr. Morpurgo, who was a primary teacher before becoming a writer, wants to see a “story time” introduces in every primary school, when stories are read aloud, at the end of each day. His Book Trust lecture called on schools and the governmemt to keep libriries open, for parents to read to their children every night, etc. “Story time” would be a special time with no testing or teaching. “Let the children go home dreaming of the story, reliving it, wonder… All the rest will come later. Once the seed is sown, the fore is lit, children will want to learn. So give them the love of story first; the rest will follow.”

    Diana Gerald, the co-worker of Book Trust, said, “Reading isn’t a tick-list of books. That need to have been read;nor is it just a skill to be learned then put aside. The ability of reading and writing can, and should be tested; reading for pleasure needs to be valued and seen more like exercise-do it as regularly as you can, make it fun and red together whenever possible for maximum benefits.”

    1. What does the expression “passing the buck” in Paragraph 3 probably mean?

    A. Valuable.               B. Irresponsible.

    C. Unnecessary.            D. Harmful.

    2. According to the passage, what should children do at their “story time”?

    A. Enjoy reading.           B. Prepare for tests.

    C. Practise writing stories.    D. Tick their book lists.

    3. Which of the following is Mr. Morpurgo’s suggestion?

    A. Test should be canceled in schools.

    B. Children should join the Book Trust.

    C. Reading for pleasure should be encouraged.

    D. The government should build more libraries.

    4. Which of the following statements is TRUE?

    A. Mr. Morpurgo hopes to become a primary teacher.

    B. Children who are tested can’t get the joy from reading.

    C. Mr. Morpurgo wants his book War Horse to be read often in schools.

    D. Chilrdren who fail in tests probably won’t explore the wonder of stories.

        One day a little girl found two weak birds when she walked in the forests. She took them home and put them in a small cage.

        Every day she feeds them with love and the birds grow strong. Every morning they say “hello” to her with a beautiful song. The girl loves them very much and wants their singing to last (持续) forever (永远).

        One day the girl left the cage’s door open. The larger and stronger of the two birds flew out of the cage. The girl watched worriedly when it circled (盘旋) high above her. She was afraid that it would fly away and she would never see it again. So when it flew close, she caught it at once. She was very happy that she held it tightly (紧紧地) in her hand! Suddenly, she felt something happened to the bird. She opened her hand and was surprised to find that the bird couldn’t move any more and died. Her love for the bird killed it.

        She noticed the other bird jumping in the cage. She could feel that it wanted to be free. It hoped to fly into the clear, blue sky. She lifted (举起) it from the cage and flew it into the air. The bird circled once, twice, three times…

        When the bird flew happily in the sky, she was so glad. Just then the bird flew closer and sat softly on her shoulder (肩膀). It sang the nicest song she often heard.

    It was a cold winter afternoon before Christmas. My parents and I sat on the bench in Washington, D.C. Union Station, waiting for the train. Inside the waiting hall were many people.
       A boy sat nearby. His worn jacket, pale face, dirty hands all seemed to tell me that he was homeless.
       “He must be cold and hungry. Maybe I should help him,” I said to myself.
        Just at that moment, a well-dressed young couple walked towards him.
       “Excuse me,” the man bent down. “My wife and I bought two meal boxes but one was enough for us. We hate to waste good food. Can you help us out and put this to use?” he handed the boy a meal box.
        The boy thanked them and opened the box with joy and care. Suddenly he stopped. In the direction to which he looked, I saw an old man in rags in a worn sweater, worn trousers and open shoes, entering the hall.
        Putting the meal box aside, the boy stood and helped the old to his seat. He took off his jacket and covered it on the old man’s shoulders, saying, “A gentleman brought me this warm meal but I just finished eating. I hate to waste good food. Can you help me out?” He placed the still-warm meal box in the old man’s hands without waiting for an answer.
       “Sure, son, but if only you share that sandwich with me. It’s too much for a man at my age. ”
       We were all touched. Dad went away and soon returned with cups of hot chocolate and a big pizza. Mum and dad went up to those rags, “Excuse me…”

    Once a king got two nice falcons(猎鹰)from his son. He had never seen such beautiful falcons before. He loved them so much and he ordered the best falconer to train them to fly.

    After several months, the king came to see how the training was going on. He found that one falcon had already been able to fly high in the sky, while the other was staying on the branch(树枝) of a tree quietly, just keeping still.

    The king called all his falconers together and ordered them to try every way they could to make the other falcon fly. But none of them succeeded. One day, while the king was taking a walk in the forest, an idea came to his mind. Maybe someone who knew the natural environment well could solve this problem. He sent for a farmer who lived in the forest into his palace to train it at once.

    The next morning, the king saw the other falcon flying above in the sky freely. “It is unbelievable!” shouted the king. How could you make it happen?”

    The farmer replied, “It’s very easy. I just cut off the branch where the falcon rested.”

    It is always the same to human beings. We all have “two flying wings” in our hearts as well, but we often seem not to notice them and stay where we just for safety and comfort. We won’t realize we can fly so high and freely until the “branch” we are resting on breaks.

       1.What did the king do after he got the two falcons?

    A. He kept them on the branch of a tree.

    B. He sent them to a farmer in the forest.

    C.He made the best falconer train them to fly.

     D. He set them free and let them fly in the sky.

       2.Why did the king call all his falconers together?

    A. Because he wanted to get more falcons.

    B. Because he wanted the other falcon to fly.

    C. Because he wanted them to see his falcons.

    D. Because he wanted to know more about his falcons.

       3.Who finally made the other falcon fly in the sky?

    A. The king.       B. The king’s son.  C. The farmer.   D. The best falconer.

       4.How did the king feel when he saw the other falcon fly freely in the sky?

    A. Excited.        B. Moved.        C. Worried.             D. Relaxed.

       5. What is the best title for the text

    A. The Wise King         B. The Nice Falcons

    C. The Best Falconer    D. The Flying Wings.

     “One father is worth more than a hundred schoolmaster,” Britain poet George Herbert once said. Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, agrees.

    When he was a little kid, Gates was silent and hated to talk with others. He spent most of his time alonereading books and thinking. To help his son, Gates’ father held family meetings and let him play simple games with family members. “These activities seemed silly but they improved my leading and working-together abilities,” Gates said later.

    While mothers offer a more gentle kind of love, fathers teach qualities like independence(独立), confidence, courage and adventure(冒险). Children learn these things from their fathers when they play sports or games together.

    British scientists showed that children who grow up without their fathers may have many problems. They may not have enough courage for facing difficulties, may be shy and worried or may even commit crimes (犯罪).

    A caring father can help children get along well with others. Fathers not only lead their children into social circles but also teach them how to behave and control their feelings. Moreover, fathers let you know who you are. They lead you to learn what you should be like as a girl or a boy.

    1. To help Bill Gates, the father played __________ games with him.

    A. simple and silly                       B. difficult but useful

    C. silly and useless                      D. simple but useful

    2. According to the story, a caring father is less likely to do the following EXCEPT_________.

    A. offer a gentle kind of love

    B. help kids get along well with others

    C. teach children how to behave and control feelings

    D. help you learn what you should be like

    3. The main idea of the story is ____________.

    A. A father plays an important role in the growth of a child.

    B. Parents offer different kinds of love to their children.

    C. How Bill Gates became the richest man.

    D. The possible dangers of children without fathers.

        I have tried to write a ghost story that won't make you unhappy with yourselves, with each other, with the seasons, or with me. I hope it haunts your houses pleasantly.

        One Christmas Eve, old Scrooge and Bob were working busily in his office. It was a cold, foggy day. The fog was so thick that the houses opposite were like ghosts. It was only three o'clock in the afternoon, but it was already quite dark.

        "Merry Christmas, Uncle! God bless you!" cried a happy voice. It was Scrooge's nephew.

        "Bah!" said Scrooge. "Humbug(骗人的话)"

        "Christmas is a humbug! Surely you don't mean that, Uncle." said his nephew.

    "I do," said Scrooge. "Merry Christmas! What reason have you got to be merry? You are poor."

    " OK, then," replied the nephew cheerfully. " What reason have you got to be sad? You are rich. Don't be angry, Uncle!" said his nephew.

        "What else can I be?" answered the uncle, "I live in a world of fools! Merry Christmas! What's Christmas time to you? It's a time for paying bills without money. It's a time for finding yourself a year older, but not richer. Everyone who goes around saying 'Merry Christmas 'should have his tongue cut out. Yes, he should!"

        "Uncle! Please don't say that!"said the nephew. "I've always thought of Christmas time as a good time, a kind, and a charitable, happy time. And so, Uncle, Christmas has never put any gold or silver in my pocket, but I think it has done me good. And it will do me good. And I say, God bless it!"

        Bob, standing in the corner of the room, applauded(鼓掌). He realized his mistake very soon, and went quickly back to his work, but Scrooge had heard him.

        "One more sound from you, Bob Cratchit," said Scrooge, "and you'll celebrate Christmas by losing your job!"

        "Don't be angry with him, Uncle. Come and have dinner with us tomorrow."

        "No." said Scrooge.

        "I'm sorry you don't want to celebrate Christmas. But I do. So a Merry Christmas, Uncle !"

        "Good afternoon!" said Scrooge.

        "And a Happy New Year!" said his nephew.

        "Good afternoon!" said Scrooge again.

        His nephew left the room. He stopped to wish Bob a Merry Christmas. And Bob replied, "A Merry Christmas to you. too."

    1. In which season did the story take place?

       A. Spring.               B. Summer.           C. Autumn.            D. Winter.

    2. What did Scrooge think of Christmas wish?

       A. It was simple.      B. It was important.       C. It was stupid.    D. It was necessary.

    3. What did Scrooge's nephew mean by saying "Christmas time is a charitable time"?

       A. Christmas was a time to be generous and kind.

       B. Christmas was a time to do some challenging work.

       C. His uncle should give some money to his family.

       D. His uncle should give away his money to the poor.

    4. Which of the following is TRUE about Scrooge and Bob?

       A. Scrooge was Bob's uncle.                        B. Bob worked for Scrooge.

       C. Scrooge celebrated Christmas with Bob.    D. Bob was Scrooge's visitor.

    5. What can we infer (推断) from the story?

       A. Scrooge was working busily in his office before Christmas.

       B. No rich people wanted to waste their time to celebrate Christmas.

       C. Bob believed in Christmas wish as well as Scrooge's nephew.

       D. Scrooge refused his nephew's invitation to dinner on Christmas day.

    It may be hard to believe , but the American Revolution(革命) —the war that freed the American states from British control—began over a cup of tea. Tea was not the only thing that caused the war, of course, but it played a very big part.

        The British people’s love of tea is well-known. When the British won control over much of North America in the early 1700s, they brought their tea-drinking habits with them. Tea quickly became the continent’s most popular drink. As tea could not be grown locally, just as in Britain, it was shipped into the country—mostly from India.

    In the early 1700s, the British government made a special deal with the East India Company, an English trading company. They agreed that no other company was allowed to bring tea to Britain or any country controlled by Britain, including America. It was a great deal for the East India Company, since it meant that the company could decide whatever price it wanted for its products. And it always decided on a high price!

    In North America, the local people did not like having to pay such high prices. Instead of overpaying for tea from the Britain, they turned to Dutch traders, who secretly brought tea to the country that was just as good—and much less expensive. Although this broke the law, the American people didn’t care. They got the same cup of tea at a much lower price.

    The East India Company, however, didn’t like this at all. By the 1760s, they were losing millions of pounds each year to Dutch traders—a huge amount of money in a time when 60 a year was considered a good income. Instead of reducing their prices to compete with the Dutch, the company asked the British government for help and the government agreed.

    In 1767, the British introduced new laws that increased the prices of all goods which were brought into America. These laws helped make the East India Company even richer and forced local people to pay much more for everything. The American leaders asked the British government not to do so, but the British refused to listen. These unfair laws increased Americans’ anger about British rule and the rest, as they say, is history.

    1. In the early 1700s where did most tea drunk in America come from?

       A. China.                        B. India.                       C. America.                  D. Britain.

    2. The underlined word “it” in Paragraph 3 refers to "          ".

       A. the tea market                                                B. the American government

       C. the British government                                    D. the East India Company

    3. Why did many Americans begin to buy tea from the Dutch traders?

       A. Because the tea was much cheaper.                 B. Because the tea was a lot healthier.

       C. Because they could buy it more easily.              D. Because they didn’t want to support the British.

    4.What did the East India Company do to stop losing money?

       A. It reduced the price of its tea.                          B. It improved the taste of its tea.

       C. It introduced a new kind of tea.                       D. It asked the British government for help.

    5.What is the passage mainly about?

       A. Tea trade in eighteenth-century America.

       B. The relationship between America and Britain.

       C. A reason for the start of the American Revolutionary War.

       D. The introduction of British tea-drinking habits into America.

        Rob Frenette had problems with bullies(欺辱) at school for eleven years. He was often lonely and scared. When he was fifteen, however, he decided to do something about his problems. He walked into a newspaper office and told them about the bullying. His story went into the newspaper and soon all the TV stations in Canada wanted to talk to him about his experiences. They also wanted to hear his ideas to stop bullying.

        After that, Rob continued his studies at school, but in his free time he helped other people with bullying problems. With a friend Katie Neu, he made a website called www. bullyingcanada. ca.

Every weekend Rob has to answer e-mails to the website. He also speaks to children, teachers and members of government around the country about bullying.

        Rob’s most important message is: “When bullies are unkind to you, it isn’t your fault. There’s nothing wrong with you, so you should try to keep trusting yourself. And remember that people care about your problems. You just have to find those people.”

        One of Rob’s ideas is “Blue Day”, a special day for stopping bullying in schools. Students have to wear blue clothes and in class they learn how to stop bullying. More than 150 Canadian schools now celebrate Blue Day, but Rob won’t stop until there’s a Blue Day in every school in Canada.
