We remembered that she had touched so many people's lives, and there were so many people for her to consider. Then someone got the idea that we should include everyone in the celebration by turning it into a tribute(献礼) to my grandmother. We secretly sent out letters to the people in Grandmother's address book and asked them to send a letter with a memory that they had shared with her. People sent us letters with poems,
xkb 1.com

stories and pictures. The deep feeling that was shared through the response (回应) surprised us. We compiled(编辑)these letters into a memory book and amazed her with it on the morning of her birthday. The unusual thing about my grandmother's friends was not the number that she had, but the connection they shared. In many ways this book of friendship was the greatest achievement of my grandmother's life. I believe that developing true friendships is one of the most important things that anyone can d o in one's lifetime. It is not a matter of the number of friends one has, but the quality of th e bonds. If one has had at least one true f riendship before dying, then one can say one has lived a successful life. I have made many friends and I believe I have begun to develop the same types of friendships my grandmother kept up over her lifetime. I only hope that I will be as successful as she has been. 56. How did the author's family celebrate Grandmother's birthday ? A. They took her on a trip across the country. B. They gave her a memory book of friendship. C.

C Public schools in Washington, D.C. provide students with musical instruments for free. When something goes wrong with an instrument, Charles West and Larry Jernigan do the repairs. Both men approach their work with a passion(激情). For them, it’s important that students have a joyful experience with music. The two have worked together for almost 20 years. This year alone, they’ve fixed about 450 instruments. Both men are musicians and music lovers, so learning to do repairs came naturally. “I have been a musician all my life.” says West. “I played in an orchestra here in the city. I majored in music in college. I played in an army band.” Jernigan’s musical interests are varied. “I was formerly trained in the piano and guitar. The alto sax, and the flute, I picked up while working here.” In addition to fixing instruments, the two also go to schools to instruct teachers and s tudents on how to make minor repairs on their own. West believes if children start early and stay concerned with music, it enriches other areas of their lives. “I see that in other kids. I see it in myself. I have seen it hundreds of times and it works,” he says. “They learn teamwork. They learn patience and respect.” But West has concerns about the future of music in the electronic age. “This instant age has taken away from the sit-down, the patience. And to learn to play an instrument, it takes patience, it takes diligence, it takes time.” Being able to enjoy music on the job is one of the benefits of the job. Both men agree their best rewards are the students’ performances. 66. What’s the job of West and Jernigan at school? A. Teaching music. B. Writing music. C. Making musical instruments. D. Repairing musical instruments. 67. They love the job because they can . A. earn more money B. learn repair skills C. enjoy music D. watch performances 68. Which of the following is true of the two men? A. They have fixed 450 instruments in the past 20 years. B. They can play and repair musical instruments. C. Jernigan used to play in an army band. D. West was trained to play the piano. 69. According to West, what can people learn from music? A. Teamwork and patience. B. The value of time. C. The truth of society. D. Diligence and confidence. 70. What is mainly talked about in the text? A. How to repair musical instruments. B. Learning experiences of two repairmen. C. How to prepare a musical performance. D. The enjoyable job of two music lovers.

If we agree that the function of education is to prepare us for life, then there is very little time to waste. So, while we can, we ought to concentrate on teaching children something really useful. Here is what our schools should teach. Politeness is a mark of civilization. The sooner children learn this, the better. In any case, a lot can be accomplished by a smile and good manners. Like it or not, our adult lives will be consumed by the struggle for money, but we don’t make an effort to teach children how to manage it. So our schools have a duty to teach them this ability from the beginning. We’re likely to accept something we are told, b ut that’s not what educated people do. Educated people are reasonable and they look at facts. If our schools teach nothing else, they should at least teach critical(批判性的)thinking. Children should learn to take care of their health. They should know that if they eat junk food, they will become fat and unhealthy. They should be very clear about what happens to their bodies when they drink or smoke. All of us are part of society. We have rights and responsibilities. We ought to understand what they are. We have to know a little bit of history and geography, because we need to have an environment in which to relate to the people around us. How will we test students on these? We can’t. But that’s not a reason to avoid teaching what is important. Our schools should spend every moment they have telling this to our children: ”This is life, this is what you are going to face, and this is how you deal with it.” Title Introduction Advice Very 76 In Schools for life.

in the passage and required words limit. Write your answers on your answer sheet. Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky on February 12, 1809. When he was a small boy, his family moved to Indiana. Here, his mother taught him to read and write. Lincoln had very little formal education, but he became one of the best-educated men of the Great West. When Lincoln was a young man, his family moved to the new state of Illinois. Lincoln had to make a living at an early age, but in his spare time he studied law. He soon became one of the best-known lawyers in the state capital at Springfield, Illinois. It was here that Lincoln became famous for his debates with Stephen A. Douglas on the problem of slavery (奴隶制度). In 1860, Lincoln was elected President of the United States. He was the candidate of the new Republican Party. This party is against the creation of new slave states. Soon after his election, some of the Southern states quit from the Union and set up the Confederate States of America(美利坚联 盟国). This action resulted in the terrible Civil War which lasted from 1861 to 1865. On January 1,1863, during the war, Lincoln published his famous Emancipation Proclamation(解放宣言). In this file, Lincoln announced that all the slaves were to be free from that day. In 1865, after the war ended, another file was added to end the slavery everywhere in the United States. Early in 1865, the Civil War came to an end with the defeat of the South by the North. Only a few days after the end of the War, Lincoln was shot by an actor named John Wilkes Booth. The President died on April 14, 1865. In his death, the world lost one of the greatest men of all time. 86. Who taught Lincoln to read and write in his childhood? (no more than 10 words) (2 marks) 87. When did Lincoln become the president of the U.S.? (no more than 3 words) (2 marks) 88. What does the underlined phrase “this action” in Paragraph Three refer to? (no more than 20 words) (3 marks) 89. How did the Civil War come to an end?

He experienced his first airplane flight with his father when he was five, and earned his flight certificate at age 15. At age 17, Armstron g began studying engineering a t university. Two years later, he joined the Navy. After his service with the Navy as a pilot, he returned to university to study engineering. Then Armstrong became a test pilot in a flight station, and began his astronaut career in 1958. July 17, 1969 was an unforgettable day in Armstrong’s life. He was sent into space with other two astronauts in Apollo 11, the space flight that would carry men to the first landing on the moon. After four days’ voyage in space, they landed on the moon successfully. Armstrong made “the giant leap for mankind” and became the first man to walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong died on August 25, 2012. His remarkable life inspires the young people around the world to be willing to explore and push the limits, and to work hard to make their dreams come true.
