Are you so sure your mistakes are just mistakes? Or could they be building blocks to a success beyond any you imagined?
When my friend Dorothy goes home to visit her family each Thanksgiving, her mother serves the traditional “mistake salad”. The dish was born many years ago, Dorothy explains, when mother was using a cookbook to make a salad. In the process, by mistake, mother included half the salad ingredients (原料) from a recipe (食谱) on the left side of the open cookbook, and half the ingredients from a different salad recipe on the opposite page. Everyone enjoyed the salad so much that she continued to serve it every year. So it was really not a mistake at all.
Then there was the man named Alfred, who invented dynamite (炸药). When Alfred’s brother died, the city newspaper mistook his brother for him, saying in the news that the dead’s most famous act was the creation of bombs (炸弹). Surprised to consider that his name would forever be connected with destruction, Alfred wanted to leave a more positive impression on people. So he set a prize for people who made contributions to world peace. Now the Nobel Prize, set up by Alfred Nobel, is the most respected prize in the world.
Everything is part of something bigger, and so are mistakes. In his brilliant book Illusions, Richard Bach explains that every problem comes to you with a gift. If you only fix your attention on what went wrong, you miss the gift. If you are willing to look deeper and ask for the bright, the problem will disappear. You are left only with the learning, and you go forward on your path.

B. Delicious dishes come from mistakes.
C. Mistakes are also part of something bigger.
D. The setting up of the Nobel Prize was a mistake.
When it comes to generation gap (代沟), we usually think of different tastes in music, or pastimes. But now the generation gap is handwriting. After one teacher in Tennessee discovered that she had students who couldn’t read what she was writing on the board, she posted it on the Internet saying that handwriting should be taught in schools.
Others who are against it claim that handwriting has become out of time in our modern world. Typed words have become a main form of communication. Once a practical skill, handwriting is no longer used by most of Americans. It is no longer taught in schools, and some claim that the time that it would take to teach it could be put to better use, for example, by teaching the technical skills.
But even in today’s world there are still plenty of reasons to pick up a pen and write on the paper. In America, signatures (签字) by hand are still often required, for example, signing for a registered letter and buying a house. And original signatures are much more difficult to fake (伪造).
There is also strong evidence that writing by hand is good for the mind. It makes a different part of the brain active and improves fine moving skills in young children. People are also more likely to remember what they write by hand than what they type, and the process of writing by hand has been shown to stimulate ideas. Not only those, studies have shown that kids who write by hand learn to read and spell earlier than those who don’t.
Yes, we live in a modern world, but we live in a modern world of basic and important values.
22. What did the teacher find in her class?
A. Her students were too lazy to follow her class.
B. Her handwriting was too terrible to understand.
C. There was something wrong with some students, eyes.
D. Some students could not recognize her written words on the board.
23. Some people are against handwriting teaching because they think .
A. handwriting is a practical skill
B. handwriting is no longer popular
C. it’s difficult to fake typed signatures
D. handwriting is no longer used by Americans
24. How many advantages does handwriting have for the mind?
A. 3. B. 4. C. 7. D. 8.
25. The underlined word “stimulate” in Paragraph 4 probably means .
A. cause B. collect C. exchange D. influence

Once there lived a rich man, 51 wanted to do something for the people of his town. But first he wanted to find out 52 they were worth his help or not.
In the center of the main road into the town, he placed a very large stone. Then he 53 (hide) behind a tree and waited.

My Unforgettable Experience
During last summer holidays, in order to do something meaningful instead of staying at home, I got a job at a fast food restaurant as a cleaner. I worked eight hours a day for four weeks.
Every day I started off for work early in the morning and got home late in the evening. The job was hard and boring and seemed endless, which made me so tired that I nearly gave it up half way. However, I finished it with determination. Although I met with a lot of difficulty in the work, it helped me understand better what labor means. I think it’s really an unforgettable experience.
