A Sweet Lesson
Many people have clear memories of their school years. What I remember most was meeting Christopher， who had diabetes(糖尿病）at the age of four.
Christopher came to my 13 right after Christmas break. He wasn’t shy at all. He stood in front of the class and introduced himself with 14 .
Weeks passed and I realized Christopher was exactly like
me. We both were funny and liked sports! But Christopher
always wore a metal bracelet, which made him quite different.
My classmates didn’t 15 it. They stayed away from Christopher.
a metal bracelet
The day before spring break, we had a class party. Mrs. Rose invited our
parents too. All kinds of candies were passed out. I tasted every kind and got
some for Christopher too， but he didn’t even 16 them.
“Why aren’t you eating， Christopher?” I asked.
He answered seriously, “I can’t. ’’
I kept giving candies to him then he got 17 ，“I told you I can’t Stop
it! He then stormed out of the room and his mother followed.
I went home that night with a million questions. My mom told me Christopher had diabetes and that was why he couldn’t eat as much sugar as everyone else. She also 18 he wore the bracelet because it had all his medical information in it， in case(万一) he was in serious danger. I felt so sorry for Christopher.
When we returned to school after spring break, I asked Mrs. Rose if I could tell the class Christopher’s medical condition. She agreed. I told them about his diabetes. I also suggested that every snack or sweet that we brought to class should be OK for Christopher.
Months went by and Christopher was 19 than ever. He had even more friends and didn’t feel so left out during snack time because everyone was eating the same treat. I realized this was exactly what Christopher wanted——friends who could 20 him and love him for who he was.

Georgina hated wrapping Christmas gifts. It was
hard to make them look good. She couldn’t fold and cut
cleanly, and the gifts just looked sad under the
Christmas tree as if someone had sat upon them. No one
praised Georgina’s wrapping， and they just tore off and
threw away her wasted colorful paper straight away. But her sister, Jeannette,
could wrap gifts perfectly. It was almost a shame to open Jeannette’s gifts
sometimes because it would destroy her wrapping jobs.
This year, Georgina had a new plan. She started with her brother. He
liked UFOs， so she wrapped his gifts in aluminum foil(铝箔纸）to make them
shiny. They looked really nice reflecting the lights of the Christmas tree.
For her perfect sister, Jeannette, it would be hard to make things perfect
enough, because she was very picky. To make fun of this, all of her gifts were
wrapped in pink and red paper, and small mirrors hung from the gifts, so she
could see herself when she was opening her gifts. It was a fun idea.
Dad loves reading humorous stories in newspapers, so Georgina bought
some newspapers and covered his gifts with funny stories. He would surely
laugh as he opened his gifts.
Mom was so hard-working but managed to present herself at her best. It
was hard to figure out her gift-wrapping. Finally, Georgina decided to wrap the
gifts up in an apron(围裙）.
She was done, and she couldn’t wait to see their reactions(反应）！
The next morning, everyone was pleasantly surprised about how
thoughtful and cool her wrapping job was. Even perfect Jeannette was amazed，
and very impressed. Everyone thanked her, and they probably liked the
wrapping better than the gifts inside. They had a wonderful time together, and
that was what really counted.
24. Who usually wrapped gifts best?
A. Georgina’s mom B. Georgina’s dad.
C. Georgina’s brother. D. Georgina’s sister.
25. Georgina wrapped the gifts for her dad in .
A. pink and red paper B. aluminum foil
C. newspapers D. an apron
26. What did Georgina’s family think of her wrapping job this year?
A. It took her too much time.
B. It was well planned and special.
C. It wasn’t cut cleanly and looked ugly.
D. It was less wonderful than the gifts inside.
Do You Believe You Can Improve?
There5s a high school in Chicago with an unusual grading system. If students
don’t pass a test, they get a different kind of grade “Not Yet” instead of “Failed”. In
her TED presentation The Power of Believing You Can Improve, Carol Dweck, a
psychologist(心理学家），explains the power of “Not Yet”： If you get a failing
grade，you think you’re nothing. But if you get the grade “Not Yet”，you understand
that you’re on the way to the future.
In one study led by Dweck, she wanted to see how children dealt with
challenges and difficulties. She gave l0-year-old children problems that were
a bit too hard for them. “Some of them behaved in a surprisingly positive way，’’
explained Dweck. “They said things like ‘1 love a challenge" or ‘1 think I’ve
learned something from this. These children had a “growth mindset”. They
understood that their abilities could be developed. They didn’t run from error
(失误）；they learned from it.
But other children felt it was terrible to make an error. They felt their
intelligence(才智）had been used up. These children had a “fixed mindset”.
They didn’t believe they could do anything to improve the situation. In the
follow-up studies, Dweck learned these children were more likely to cheat.
They looked for someone who did worse than they did so they could feel better
about themselves. The children with a fixed mindset were operating from the
“Now”，however, the children with a growth mindset were operating from the
We all have things we want to improve. The problem, however, is few of
us believe we can. We believe we’re not smart, or we don’t have enough time.
We believe we can’t persist (坚持）in the face of difficulties or learn from
criticism(批评）.It’s a result of a fixed mindset. But the wonderful reality is we
can move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset once we know how.
First, believe you can change, now. Not tomorrow, next week, next
month, or next year, but now.
Next, for every negative(负面的）thought, write down a positive answer.
So when your self-talk says，“I tried running before and gave up after a week. ”，
you can reply, “That’s because I didn’t have a carefully designed plan. Now I
have one and I’m going to stick to it. ’’
Developing a growth mindset takes time and effort, but over time, with enough
practice, you’ll operate less from the “Now” and more from the “Not Yet”.
27. Why does the school in Chicago use “Not Yet” instead of “Failed” to grade
A. To keep students from losing confidence.
B. To help students realize their weak points.
C. To advise students to take the test a second time.
D. To make students understand their future is uncertain.
28. Which of the following statements shows that the person has a “growth
A. “I failed in the task. I was nothing. ’’
B. “I can’t stick to taking exercise. I’m too busy. ”
C. “I know math is interesting but I am not smart for it. ”
D. “I didn’t win the competition but I learned a lot from it. ”
29. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Most people believe they can improve themselves.
B. Dweck did the study to help children get better grades.
C. Some children cheated in the study and were punished.
D. People can follow some ways to develop a growth mindset.
In July 2017, families in Marion County， Florida, got surprising news
about the coming school year； Traditional homework will disappear, at least for
Last year， Dara, a fifth grader, had two or three hours of homework a
night. “I had 12 math questions and six or seven pages of work to do for
reading，” she said. Now Dara’s new homework is only to read for 30 minutes.
She enjoys having more time for activities like painting and playing video games.
But her mom misses last year’s assignments. “The kids knew that once they
finished those worksheets, they were done，” she says. “Sometimes， getting
Dara to sit down and read for 30 minutes is a challenge. ”
Around the country， primary schools are experimenting with a no-homework policy(政策）.School leaders say the new policy is based on research. Studies have shown that homework does not improve grades or test scores in primary schools. Paula Fass is the author of The End of American Childhood. She says，“There’s been controversy over homework ever since schooling became a requirement. ?? Support for homework has gone up and down through the years. More than a century later, many still question the role that homework should have in kids’ lives.
Harris Cooper, a professor, has studied more than 50 researches on
homework. In his view, homework has a positive effect on achievement. The
effect gets larger as kids move through the grades. But even in the early grades，
homework has a positive effect on simple skills. Examples include spelling and
math facts. But he warns that homework can have a negative effect as well. “If
there’s too much of it or if it’s too difficult, it can lead to frustration，” he says.
“And that’s not a good thing. ’’
Last year, Kelly Primary School in Holyoke, Massachusetts, eliminated(取消）
homework. But this year，students in kindergarten through eighth grade have
homework once again. But they receive only one assignment per day. The
headmaster explained that the school took a balanced way. “We want to build
responsibility and structure，” she says. “But we don’t want to take away the
important time that children have with their families or practising sports.??
Kelly Primary School won’t be the only school to experiment with the
no-homework policy. “One thing you can know is that this is part of a long
history of fight over homework，” says Fass. “And that can be expected to

P. I. C. K. the Right Books for You
The secret to learn how to choose the right book is simple. It’s one word
you can depend on when you’re in a library or a bookstore. All you need to
remember is “ P. I. C. K. “ P. I. C. K. ” stands for Purpose, Interest，
Comprehend, and Know the Words.
P= Purpose. Why are you looking for a book——reading for pleasure or trying to
learn something? Reading silently for yourself or reading out loud for someone else?
Most often, your purpose for reading can be found with a quick answer.
I = Interest. With the many millions of books on shelves today, there must
be something out there for everyone. If you are interested in cars， consider
books about history of racing, race car drivers, or car design. Even if you have
a short amount of time to choose books, you can determine interest by looking
at the front cover， flipping through(快速翻阅）the pages to have a quick look at
photos or illustrations, or reading the back cover or the chapter titles.
C = Comprehend. It’s important to choose a book right for your level or
ability. How to choose such a book? If you read books at Level A, for example,
you’d better not choose a book at Level D. If the book isn’t labeled(贴标签）
with a level, you can open the book and choose a page——then you can decide
whether the book is at a right level for you by asking yourself；
• Did I understand what I just read?
• Do I remember what I read?
• Was I able to read most of the words?
This brings us to our final letter； K.
K=Know the Words. Readers should be able to understand most of the
words on the page. The key is the ‘‘Five Finger Rule” ： Choose a book you
would like to read， look at a page in the middle and put one finger down for
every word you don’t understand. The “Five Finger Rule” shows a general idea
of the relationship between the number of unknown words and the difficulty
level of a book；
•0 — 1 unknown word = too easy
•2 — 3 unknown words=just right
•4~5 unknown words = too difficult
You want to know how to choose books right for you一books that are
enjoyable， fun and exciting. P. I. C. K. is all about giving you the tools to be a
strong and confident reader.
34. What does “P. I. C. K. ” stand for?
35. According to the passage, what is one possible purpose for reading?
36. What books does the writer advise you to read if you’re interested in cars?
37. What is the fourth paragraph mainly about?
38. If you put three fingers down when you’re reading a page, what’s the
difficulty level of the book?
