A NATIONWIDE BESTSELLER
It’s likely that everything you learned about. America’s ancient history is wrong.
The new book, 1491, completely changes our understanding of the America’s before the arrival of Columbus in 1492.
DID YOU KNOW?
When Columbus landed there were probably more people in the Americas than there were in Europe.
The peoples of North America had such healthy life-styles that as late as the 19th century they continued to be the tallest people on earth.
Facts have shown that the Americas were populated as long as 33,000 years ago.
4,000 years ago Mesoamerican farmers developed com in a feat (技艺) of genetic engineering that still isn’t completely understood.
COMMENTS ON 1491
“In the tradition of Jared Diamond & John McPhee, a totally new view of pre-Columbian America”
— Richard Rhodes
“Attractively written and really absorbing Charles C. Mann has produced a book that’s part detective story, part epic (史诗) and part tragedy (不幸). He has taken on a vast topic: thousands of years, two huge continents, and cultures. ”
— Charles Matthews, San Jase Mercury News
“Powerful and challenging”
— Alan Taylor, Washington post
“A pleasure to read as well as a wonderful education”
— Howard Zinn

A. life-styles B. population C. history D. agriculture
57. Which of the following as NOT TRUE about the comments on the book 1491?

For the first time in modern history, less than half of the U. S. adult population now reads literature, according to a recent survey. Reading at Risk: A Survey of Literary Reading in America presents a detailed review of the decline of reading’s role in the nation’s culture.
Reading at Risk is a survey of national fashion in adult literary reading. The data source for Reading at Risk is as reliable and objective (客观的) as any such survey can be. The key results of the survey are presented in the “Summary”, but the report can be further explained as: literary reading in America is not only declining rapidly among all groups, but the rate of decline has been speeded up, especially among the young. Reading at Risk merely shows a great cultural change that most Americans have already noted — our society’s great turn to electronic media for entertainment and information.
Reading a book requires a degree of active attention and devotion. Indeed, reading itself is a progressive skill that depends on years of education and practice. On the contrary, most electronic media such as television, recordings, and radio make fewer demands on their audiences, and indeed require no more than passive participation. While oral culture has a rich reality and electronic media offer the considerable advantage of variety, print culture affords irreplaceable forms of focused and thought than make various communications and views possible. The decline in reading, therefore, equals a larger retreat (减少) from participation in public and cultural life.
What is to be done? There is surely no single solution to the present problem, just as there is no single cause. The important thing now is to understand that America can no longer take active and devoted reading for granted.
Reading is not a timeless, common ability. As more Americans love thus ability. out nation becomes less informed, active, and independent minded. These are not qualities that a free, inventive, or productive society can afford to love.
59. The main purpose of the survey is to ____.
A. focus on the role of electronic media and reading
B. show that American young people read less and less
C. give a report of the national fashion of literary reading
D. review that less that half of the population now reads literature
60. According to the passage, reading _____.
A. requires less attention and devotion
B. demands no more than passive participation
C. limits various communications and views
D. means active participation in public and cultural life
61. The underlined phrase “cultural change” in Paragraph 2 refers to the change _____.
A. from oral culture to electronic media
B. from print culture to electronic to electronic media
C. from electronic media to oral
D. from electronic media to print culture
62. The author of the passage _____.
A. misunderstands oral culture
B. doubts the Americans to read more
C. encourages the Americans to read more
D. agrees to the solution to present problem in reading
The coyote (丛林狼), that clever animal of wide-open space. has come to the nation’s capital. In fact, coyotes have spread to every comer of the United States, changing their behaviors to fit new environments and causing researchers to deal with a troublesome new kind of creature: the city coyote.
The coyote originally lived in the middle of the continent. One of its most obvious characters is its smartness, which has made the animal a notorious（臭名昭著的）pest. Hunters trapped, shot and poisoned more than a million coyotes in the 1900s. It’s still one of America’s most hunted animals. Yet the coyote has survived. How has the coyote shown this extraordinary ability?” I guess if you wanted to use one word, it’d be ‘plasticity’. ” says Erie Gese, an expert at Utah State University. Coyotes can live alone, in pairs, or in large packs like wolves, hunt at night or during the day, occupy a small region or an area up to___40___square miles, and live on all sorts of food, from lizards（蜥蜴）and shoes, to ants and melons.
Unbelievably people helped coyotes increase when they killed most of the wolves in the United States. The spreading of coyotes into city areas, though, is recent. They travel at night, crossing sidewalks and bridges. running along roads and ducking into culverts (钻入洞）and underpasses. No one knows why coyotes are moving into cities, but experts explain that cleverer, more human-tolerant (不怕人的) coyotes are teaching urban survival skills to new generations.
Occasionally, coyotes might attack human beings. There have been about 160 attacks on people in recent years Therefore, people have been consistently told not feed coyotes or leave pet food unsecured. That, plus a large trapping program in the neighborhood, has cur down on the coyote population.
63. The underlined word “plasticity” in Paragraph 2refers to _____.
A. the ability to fit the environment B. notorious smartness
C. hunting ability D. being human-tolerant
64. The aim of the passage is to _____.
A. tell people how to fight against coyotes
B. tell us why the coyote is the most hunted animal
C. supply the reason why the coyote is a kind of notorious pest
D. explain how the coyote has spread to and survived in cities
65. According to the passage, coyote _____.
A. originally lived in the west of the continent
B. sleep dung the day but look for food at night
C. are teaching survival skills to there younger generations
D. suffered a population decrease because people killed wolves
66. According to the passage, to cut down on the coyote population, people are advised to _____.
A. leave pct food secured B. keep coyotes in small regions
C. force coyotes to live alone D. avoid using trapping programs
The discovery of a dwarfed (矮个的)” human being” who lived in Flores. Indonesia. up to 18,000 years ago is changing the way we think about the human family. This “Flores Human” was three foot tall and her brain was smaller than that lf the average chimp (黑猩猩), yet she and her relatives apparently lived fully human lives. They seem to have made tools, worked together to find food and cook it, and perhaps even hurried their dead with ceremony.
It was a major surprise to find tools associated with the new human family member. The tools are like those formerly seen only with European fossils (化石) from our own species; Homo sapiens (智人)；and the oldest of them were made 94,000years ago. Homo sapiens is thought to have arrived in the island about 40,000 years ago,much too late to be responsible for the tools. If this tiny human made the tools, them the inside structure (结构) of its brain must have been more like our own than a chimp’s,despite being just a third the size of ours.
This “new human” was suspected to be a dwarfed ranch of Homo erectus (直立人). When creatures are separated in regions with rare resources but few enemies, being big is a disadvantage, and evolution tends to shrink them, a process known as island dwarfing. Could natural selection make a human smaller while keeping — even improving — mental ability?Quite possibly, believes Christopher Wills of the University of California.
Has the “Flores Human” even shown the ability of language? “I find it difficult to imagine that people could make tools, use fire, and kill large animals without fairly advanced communication. ” Wills says. Did “Flores Human” possess the basic components of human culture — such as the burying of the dead with ceremony? Emiliano Bruner of the Italian Institute points out that Indonesia’s hot, wet environment is bad for fossilization. It is reasonable to assume, he says, that the 18,000-year-old bones of the most complete Flores woman were well-preserved because she was buried with special care.
67. According to the passage, “Flores Human” _____.
A. lived a partly human life
B. was a branch of Homo sapiens
C. used tools before Homo sapiens arrived
D. had a brain as a common chimp’s
68. The underlined part “this tiny human” in Paragraph 2 refers to _____.
A. a chimp B. Flores Human
C. Homo sapiens D. Homo sapiens
69. This passage mainly talks about _____.
A. the tools made by “Flores Human”
B. the language used by “Flores Human”
C. the evolution of “Flores Human”
D. the major surprising findings about “Flores Human”
70. According to the passage, it is believed that “Flores Human” _____.
A. was dwarfed by its enemies
B. could use language
C. left a lot of fossils in hot and wet environment
D. reached Flores 40,000 years ago
Susan Sontag (1933 — 2004) was one of the most noticeable figures in the world of literature. For more than___40___years she made it morally necessary to know everything — to read every book worth reading, to see every movie worth seeing. When she was still in her early 30s, publishing essays in such important magazines as Partisan Review, she appeared as the symbol of American culture life, trying hard to follow every new development in literature, film and art. With great effort and serious judgment, Sontag walked at the latest edges of world culture.
Seriousness was one of Sontag’s lifelong watchwords (格言), but at a time when the barriers between the well-educated and the poor-educated were obvious, she argued for a true openness to the pleasure of pop culture. In “Notes Camp”, the 1964 essay that first made her name,she explained what was then a little-known set of difficult understandings, through which she could not have been more famous. “Notes on Camp”, she wrote, represents “a victory of ‘form’ over ‘content’, ‘beauty’ over ‘morals’”.
By conviction（信念）she was a sensualist（感觉论者）, but by nature she was a moralist （伦理学者）, and in the works she published in the 1970s and 1980s, it was the latter side of her that came forward. In illness as Metaphor —published in 1978, after she suffered cancer—she argued against the idea that cancer was somehow a special problem of repressed personalities（被压抑的性格）, a concept that effectively blamed the victim for the disease. In fact, re-examining old positions was her lifelong habit.
In America, her story of a 19th century Polish actress who set up a perfect society in California, won the National Book Award in 2000. But it was as a tireless, all-purpose cultural view that she made her lasting fame. “Sometimes,” she once said, “I feel that, in the end, all I am really defending …is the idea of seriousness, of true seriousness. ” And in the end, she made us take it seriously too.
71. The underlined sentence in paragraph 1 means Sontag _____.
A. was a symbol of American cultural life
B. developed world literature, film and art
C. published many essays about world culture
D. kept pace with the newest development of world culture
72. She first won her name through _____.
A. her story of a Polish actress
B. her book illness as Metaphor
C. publishing essays in magazines like partisan Review
D. her explanation of a set of difficult understandings
73. According to the passage, Susan Sontag _____.
A. was a sensualist as well as a moralist
B. looked down upon the pop culture
C. thought content was more important than form
D. blamed the victim of cancer for being repressed
74. As for Susan Sontag’s lifelong habit, she _____.
A. misunderstood the idea of seriousness
B. re-examined old positions
C. argued for an openness to pop culture
D. preferred morals to beauty
75. Susan Sontag’s lasting fame was made upon _____.
A. a tireless, all-purpose cultural view
B. her lifelong watchword: seriousness
C. publishing books on morals
D. enjoying books worth reading and movies worth seeing
Quality after-school programs are designed to improve academic performance, decrease youth crimes and other high-risk be4haviors, and help young people grow into healthy, successful adults.
The effect of quality after-school programs on academic performance is clear. Studies show that students who take part in such programs show better work habits, higher rates of homework completion, improved grades, and higher scores on achievement tests. They also have fewer absences and are less likely to blame. After-school programs also influence high-risk teen behavior. Various studies show decreased rates of crime, drug use, and teen sex among youth who join in well-run after-school programs when compared to similar youth who do not. Finally, after-school p0rograms play an important role in supporting the following fields of development, mental development and social development. Thus, one can safely say that after-school programming is an effective method to help young people become contributing members of society.
Although there is enough proof from both small and large assessments that after-school programs can make a positive difference, it is important to note that not all programs are equal. First, dosage （时量）matters — young people who attend the most hours over the most years benefit more than members who attend less often or over a shorter period of time. Next, after-school programs make a bigger difference for those students who need help most and have the fewest choices. Finally, program qualities matter. After-school programs work best when they create unique opportunities for youth. They should provide opportunities, skill building meaningful involvement（参与）, expression suggestion, service, and work. Staff characteristics make an important difference in the quality of a program. The adults should treat youth as partners, create safe and fair environment, encourage personalized（个性化的）involvement, and actively create learning opportunities. In short, although after-school programs have promising future, how they are designed and run matters.

One possible version：
Of all my teachers, Mr. Moore is the one who impresses me most. Though he is 34, he looks very young for his age. And he’s one of the most popular teachers in our school.
Compared with other teachers, Mr. Moore pays more attention to his way of teaching. He tries various ways to make his classes lively and interesting. In his opinion, we should not only know “what”, but also understand “why”. So, instead of giving us answers immediately, he encourages us to think by ourselves whenever he puts forward questions. With his help, we’ve learned how to analyze and settle problems. What a wonderful world of “why” he leads us to!
He is such a learned person that we all admire him very much.
