A girl graduated from a world-famous university. She wanted to do translation work for country leaders. She was so happy when she entered the British embassy(大使馆).
But her new job was just answering calls and recording staff members’ starting and leaving times. It was simple and boring. However, she didn’t feel sad about it. And she loved it when she was working. She remembered the names and phone numbers of the staff members. When the phone calls came in, she picked it up as soon as possible. When someone asked her about who was not in the office, she would answer them the right name and the time when they left. Nobody could do that except her.
Her wonderful performance received the praise from the embassy’s staff. A leader of a big company also admired her and invited her to work for him. After that she became a personal translator of an important leader from Britain.

I got into the teaching profession by choice. When I was in the 9th grade, my math teacher asked me to help a few students who were not good at math. Before that, I never knew teaching would be so interesting.
After my graduation, I worked as a software(软件)developer. But I realized that no job could provide me with the satisfaction that I experienced while teaching. I decided to be a teacher. I applied to a few colleges, and finally I was chosen as a “Lecturer(讲师)”.
On the first day, I was nervous because I had to teach the senior classes. But now I can say that taking lectures was one of the best experiences in my life. I was a Computer Science and Information Technology lecturer, but I tried to help my students with subjects that were not within my profession. I felt excited when the students greeted me, “Good morning, Madam”.
To me each day was a new beginning, with new feelings, new experiences and new questions. I loved to open their young minds, and read their curious(好求知的)faces when a topic seemed difficult. Though few things never seemed easy, it was very exciting to try my best. That is the reason why I love to teach.
( )24. From the first paragraph, we can know that .

Computers are slowly replacing(代替)human beings at some work. Can computers replace human beings as teachers? My opinion is certain, they can. They can not only do the work of a teacher, but also can do it better.
I will tell you the advantages of computers. In the class, children are often distracted(分心)by things like what the teacher is wearing, or the feeling the teacher has. These things make students not center on the topic that is being taught. With computers playing the role of teachers, students will no longer have any such distraction and will be able to pay more attention to the subject.
Another advantage of computers is that unlike humans they do not need rest because of bad health or any other personal reasons. The programs can make sure that computers will work with few mistakes.
There is another reason why computers might be preferred to human teachers. It is impossible for a computer to prefer some students to others. Some poor students greatly depend on the support and encouragement of their teachers. So, neglect(忽视)will never happen to them by learning from the computers. Human teachers may make mistakes because of personal feelings while evaluating(评估)students’ performance. This can be avoided. The process of evaluation will be faster, too.
For these reasons, I think that computers can replace human beings as teachers. In addition, it can be a better replacement.
( )28. The writer holds the opinion that .
A.human teachers can be replaced by computers.

A new research suggests that little physical activity may leave six-to eight-year-old boys behind on their reading skills.
Researchers from the University of Eastern Finland, working together with the University of Jyv ä skyl ä and the University of Cambridge, discovered that sedentary(久坐的)behavior has connection with poor school performance in the first three school years.
Researchers discovered that high levels of moderate-to-vigorous(中等到高等强度的)physical activity and low levels of sedentary time in Grades One to Three had something to do with better reading skills in Grades One to Three among boys who had both low levels of physical activity and high levels of sedentary time had the poorest reading skills through Grades One to Three, said researcher Eero Haapala, Ph. D.
In the study, the researchers studied the longitudinal associations(纵向关联)with physical activity and sedentary time with reading and math skills in 153 children aged six to eight years old in Grades One to Three of the primary school. Physical activity and sedentary time were recorded by using a heart rate and movement sensor(传感器)in Grade One, and reading and math skills were checked by standard tests in Grades One to Three.
What is interesting is that when they studied the girls, researchers did not find a strong relationship between sedentary time and physical activity and their performance of reading or math skills.
According to the research findings, it is believed that the findings suggest that encouraging boys to have a physically active lifestyle may clearly improve their school performance in reading.

Self-improvement means things you can do to make your life better. To make yourself better, you should make it a rule to start your day in a positive(积极的)way. (36) For example, if you’re a student, you can get up early to study when the mind is still fresh.

When you do something several times, you’ll know what to avoid and what to do next time. (40) So the best way to help yourself is to never make the same mistakes.

When we say a person blows his own trumpet(喇叭), we mean he tells other people how good and (56) (success) he is. That’s usually an act of arrogance(自大). But teachers at Wimbledon High School once encouraged their students(57) (blow) their own trumpets.
“Some students are under too much pressure and they find it difficult (58)
(accept) that they have been successful, ”said Ms Hanbury, head of this famous all- girls school in London."They push (59) (them) hard and might never be happy. That's (60) the “Blow Your Own Trumpet Week” was held in the school.
In the “Blow Your Own Trumpet Week”, the teachers asked their students(61)
Share their stories of success and failure(失败). They (62) asked them to tell how well they did in each subject to know they were all good at something and that they didn't have to be good at everything.
Before that. the school(63) (hold) a “Failure Week" to help students deal with setbacks(应对挫折). The students learned how to get better from setbacks (64)
(quick). so they wouldn’t think it was the end of the world(65) they didn’t do well in an exam.
