A year ago in August, Dave Fuss lost his job driving a truck for a small company in west Michigan. His wife, Gerrie, was still working in the local school cafeteria, but work for Dave was hard, and the price of everything was rising. The Fusses were at risk of joining the millions of Americans who have lost their homes in recent years. Then Dave and Gerrie received a timely gift—$ 7,000, a legacy (遗产) from their neighbors Ish and Arlene Hatch, who died in an accident. “It really made a difference when we were going under financially.” says Dave. But the Fusses weren’t the only people in Alto and the neighboring town of Lowell to receive unexpected legacy from the Hatches. Dozens of other families were touched by the Hatches’ generosity. In some cases, it was a few thousand dollars; in other, it was more than $ 100,000.
It surprised nearly everyone that the Hatches had so much money, more than $ 3 million—they were an elderly couple who lived in an old house on what was left of the family farm.
Children of the Great Depression, Ish and Arlene were known for their habit of saving. They liked comparison shopping and would go from store to store, checking prices before making a new purchase.
Through the years, the Hatches paid for local children to attend summer camp when their parents couldn’t afford it. “Ish and Arlene never asked if you needed anything,” says their friend Sand Van Weelden, “They could see things they could do to make you happier, and they would do them.”
Even more extraordinary was that the Hatches had their farmland distributed. It was the Hatches’ wish that their legacy—a legacy of kindness as much as one of dollars and cent—should enrich the whole community and last for generations to come.
Neighbors helping neighbors—that was Ish and Arlene Hatch’s story.
21. According to the text, the Fusses ______.

D. They helped their neighbors to find jobs.
23. According to Sandy Van Weelden, the Hatches were ______.
A. understanding B. narrow-minded C. childlike D. curious
24. What can we learn from the text?
A. The community of Alto was poor.
B. The summer camp was attractive to the parents.
C. Ish and Arlene got a legacy from the Hatches.
D. The Hatches would like the neighbors to follow their example.
There are two kinds of memory: short-term and long-term. Information in long-term memory can be remembered at a later time when it is needed. The information may be kept for days or weeks. However, information in short-term memory is kept for only a few seconds, usually by repeating the information over and over. The following experiment shows how short-term memory has been studied.
Henning studied how students who are learning English as a second language remember vocabulary. The subjects in his experiment were 75 college students. They represented all levels of ability in English: beginning, intermediate (中等), and native speaking students.
To begin, the subjects listened to a recording of a native speaker reading a paragraph in English. Following the recording, the subjects took a 15-question test to see which words they remembered. Each question had four choices. The subjects had to circle the word they had heard in the recording, Some of the questions had four choices that sound alike. For example, weather, whether, wither, and wetter are four words that sound alike. Some of the questions had four choices that have the same meaning. Method, way, manner, and system would be four words with the same meaning. Finally the subjects took a language proficiency test.
Henning found that students with a lower proficiency in English made more of their mistakes on words that sound alike; students with a higher proficiency made more of their mistakes on words that have the same meaning. Henning's results suggest that beginning students hold the sound of words in their short-term memory, and advanced students hold the meaning of words in their short-term memory.
25. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?
A. Information in short-term memory is different from that in long-term memory.
B. Long-term memory can be achieved only by training.
C. It is easier to test short-term memory than long, term memory.
D. Henning gave a separate test on vocabulary to his students.
26. From Henning's result we can see that ______.
A. beginners have difficulty distinguishing the pronunciation of words.
B. advanced students always remember words by their meaning.
C. it is difficult to remember words that sound alike.
D. it is difficult to remember words that have the same meaning.
27. The word "subject" in the passage means ______.
A. memory B. the theme of listening material
C. a branch of knowledge studied D. the student experimented on
28. The passage centers on ______.
A. memory B. two kinds of memory
C. short-term memory D. an experiment on students
Forget Twitter and Facebook, Google and the Kindle. Television is still the most influential medium around. Indeed, for many of the poorest regions(地区)of the world, it remains the next big thing—finally becomes globally available. And that is a good thing, because the TV revolution is changing lives for the better.
Across the developing world, around 45% of families had a TV in 1995; by 2005 the number had climbed above 60%. That is some way behind the U.S., where there are more TVs than people, and where people now easily get access to the Internet. Five million more families in sub-Saharan Africa will get a TV over the next five years. In 2005, after the fall of the Taliban（塔利班）, which had outlawed TV, 1 in 5 Afghans had one. The global total is another 150 million by 2013—pushing the numbers to well beyond two thirds of families.
Television’s most powerful effect will be on the lives of women. In India, researchers Robert Jensen and Emily Oster found that when TVs reached villages, women were more likely to go to the market without their husbands’ approval and less likely to want a boy rather than a girl. They were more likely to make decisions over child health care TV is also a powerful medium for adult education. In the Indian state of Gujarat, Chitrageet is a popular show that plays Bollywood songs with words in Gujarati on the screen. Within six months, viewers had made a small but significant(有意义的) improvement in their reading skills.
Too much TV has been associated with violence, overweight and loneliness. However, TV is having a positive influence on the lives of billions worldwide.
29. The underlined word “outlawed” in paragraph 2 probably means “ ”.
A. not allowed B. not liked C. not offered D. not refused
30. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. Over two thirds of families in the world will have a TV by 2013.
B. The world’s TV sets will total 150 million by 2013.
C. 45% of families in the developing countries had a TV in 2005.
D. Americans used to get access to the Internet easily.
31. The author intends to .
A. introduce the readers some websites such as Google
B. persuade women to become more independent
C. encourage people to improve their reading skills
D. stress the advantages of TV to people’s lives
32. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. TV Will Rule the World B. TV Will Better the World
C. TV Will Disturb the World D. TV Will Remain in the World
In 1826, a Frenchman named Niepce needed pictures for his business. But he was not a good artist. So he invented a very simple camera. He put in a window of his house and took a picture of his yard. That was the first photograph.
The next important date in the history of photography was 1837. That year, Daguerre, another French, took a picture of his studio. He used a new kind of camera and a different process. In his pictures, you could see everything very clearly, even the smallest details. This kind of photograph was called a daguerreotype（早期银板照相法）.
Soon, other people began to use Daguerre’s process. Travelers brought back daguerreotypes from all around the world. People photographed famous buildings, cities and mountains.
In about 1840, the process was improved. Then photographers could take pictures of people and moving things. The process was not simple. The photographers had to carry lots of films and processing equipment. But this did not stop the photographers, especially in the United States. After 1840s daguerreotype artists were popular in most cities.
Mathew Brady was a well-known American photographer. He took many pictures of famous people. The pictures were unusual because they were very life-like and full of personality(个性）. Brady was also the first person to take pictures of war. His 1862 Civil War pictures showed dead soldiers and ruined cities. They made the war seem more real and more terrible.
In the 1880s, new inventions began to change photography. Photographers could buy films ready-made in rolls(卷). So they did not have to make the film themselves. Also, they did not have to process the film immediately. They could bring it back to their studios and develop it later meaning that they did not have to carry lots of equipment. And finally, the invention of the small handheld camera made photography less expensive.
With the small camera, anyone could be a photographer. People began to use cameras just for fun. They took pictures of their families, friends and favorite places. They called these pictures “snapshot”.
Photographs became very popular in newspapers in the 1890s. Soon magazines and books also used documentary photographs. These pictures showed true events and people. They were much more real than drawing.
Photography also turned into a form of art by the end of the 19th century. Some photographs were not just copies of the real world. They showed ideas and feelings like other art forms.
33. The passage is mainly about ______.
A. the invention of cameras B. a kind of new art-photography
C. the development of photography D. the important dates in the history of photography
34. The first pictures of a war were taken by ______.
A. a French photographer in the 1840s B. an American photographer in the 1860s
C. a German reporter in the 1880s D. a French artist in the 1890s
35. Photography can also be an art form because artists can ______.
A. take anything they like B. keep a record of real life
C. take photos of the famous D. show ideas and feeling in pictures
36 One of the best things you can possibly do is to start your own club. It’s great fun especially if you are the sort of person who feels there’s never anything to do during the school holidays. The first thing you need to come up with is an idea for your club. 37 Pets, clothes, pop music or dancing groups, sports, making things? The list is endless. Next you need some friends to be in your club with you. 38 All you need is three or four other people who are interested in the same thing as you. 39 You should all sit down somewhere together with lots of pieces of paper and write down every name you can think up. That’ll keep you busy for ages. At your first meeting you should make up a rule book. And the first rule should be no grown-ups or little/big brothers or sisters! The best clubs are always secret! Now you have just about everything you need, except membership cards. These are very important and again you can spend a lot of time making them.40 Why not leave some space for a photo of yourself? That will make the membership card really look like it. So there you are, get clubbing! Once you get started you’ll think of loads of more interesting things to do!
A. That’s easy.
B. Enjoy your own club!
C. Invite a designer to join you.
D. What are you interest in?
E. Some vacation is just around the corner.
F. Then you need to pick a name for your club.
G. Use a bright thick pen to make a special design.
第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节， 满分40分）
For a long time I saw happiness as a huge banner (旗帜) across the finish line of a long race. I felt that only when I 41 certain things could I finally be happy in my life. Most of the time I felt like a tortoise (乌龟，行动迟缓的人或物)believing that being slow and 42 would win the race. At other times I would 43 like a rabbit trying different side roads at a dangerous 44 hoping to reach that banner a little faster. 45 , I began to see that no matter how long I raced towards it, the banner was never any 46 . I finally decided to 47 and take a break. It was then that I saw my 48 sitting beside me.
It had been with me as I 49 hard to support my family, as I played with my children and heard their 50 and even when I was 51 with my wife at my side looking after me. It had been with me as I raced towards that stupid banner. I just didn’t have the 52 to see it.
There is an old Chinese proverb that says, “Tension is who you think you should be. 53 is who you are.” Perhaps we all should stop our race towards the 54 life we think we should have and 55 the life we have now. Happiness will never be found under some banner far away. It will be found 56 your own heart, soul and mind. It will be found when you 57 that others love you just as you do.
Don’t be a tortoise or a rabbit when it comes to your happiness. Be a playful puppy and carry your stick of 58 with you everywhere you go. 59 yourself out of the race and realize that when it comes to love and happiness, you are 60 there.
