The next morning, we got up 35 . I followed my father to the shelter with my sleepy eyes. I had no great expectations and felt 36 all the way. As soon as we arrived, we got to work. There was so much to be done. But all I could think about was the dinner I couldn’t enjoy.

Recently, a junior high school sent several students back home because they broke the school uniform（校服）rules. Should students wear school uniforms? The Young World magazine held a discussion on this topic（话题）.
Kennedy: The school uniform is very important, because it always reminds me that I am supposed to go out of my way to study hard. It also helps prevent school bullying（欺凌）. If everyone wears the same clothes, it is impossible to laugh at other people’s clothing.
Manson: The uniform has to be earned（获得）through efforts. Students should start school with no uniforms. As they make progress at school, they start wearing it. I always think children need to be proud of their school. The uniform is important for that. So, make students earn it! If they don’t perform well, they should not be allowed to get one.
Moorhead:In my opinion, kids don’t have to wear uniforms. There s hould be more choices open to kids in education. They ought to develop their own independence and just be themselves.
Their personalities would be expressed through their own clothes at school. And different dress could be one way of showing their understanding of beauty. Besides, they make the school lively and colorful.
Patrick:I can see the advantages of wearing school uniforms. They play a very important role in managing schools. However, a school should not depend heavily on uniforms to improve stude nts’ behaviors. Teaching them how to express themselves with confidence（信心）is more important.
46．What does the writer mean to do in Paragraph 1?
A．Present an opinion on a subject.
B．Introduce a topic for discussion.
C．Provide a way to solve problems.
47．What is Kennedy in the second paragraph?
A．A student. B．A teacher. C．A parent.
48．In Manson’s opinion, ___________ .
A．students have the right to get school uniforms for free
B．students should be encouraged to earn school uniforms
C．students performing well needn’t wear school uniforms
49．According to Patrick, what is more important?
A．Managing schools by uniforms.
B．Improving students’ behaviors.
C．Helping students express themselves confidently.
50．We can learn from the text that ___________ .
A．Kennedy can’t stand school uniforms
B．Moorhead is against school uniform rules
C．the writer holds the same opinion as Patrick’s
It is believed that Huck Finn is based on（基于）a childhood friend of Mark Twain’s. In fact, Twain was not alone in basing a fictional character（虚构的角色）on a real-life person.
Severus Snape / John Nettleship
Severus Snape is a skillful wizard（巫师）teaching magic in Harry Potter. The writer, J.K. Rowling, once said that the character was based on a teacher of hers.
The teacher turned out to be John Nettleship, who taught Rowling chemistry. At first, Nettleship felt surprised. “I know I am a strict teacher,” he said. “But I don’t think I am as bad as Snape!” On second thoughts, however, he said that he was so ill-tempered that most of his students avoided making him mad. Also, he used to wear long hair and have an untidy lab. That sounds familiar to Harry Potter fans.
Alice / Alice Liddell
Famously, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is based on Alice Liddell.
Carroll was close to the Liddell family. One day, ten-year-old Alice asked Carroll to tell her a new
story. Carroll began to create his famous tale of Alice and what happened after she fell through the rabbit hole. The little girl liked the story so much that she asked him to write it down. And the rest is history.
Dill / Truman Capote
In To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee based Dill on her childhood friend, Truman Capote. Capote once said, “Lee was my best friend. Have you ever read To Kill a Mockingbird? I’m a character in that story! The story takes place just in the town where we lived!”
51．Snape and Nettleship have something in common EXCEPT__________.
A．their jobs B．their looks C．their hobbies
52．What does the underlined word “ill-tempered ” mean in Paragraph 3?

A．Alice Liddell’s requirement.
B．His great interest in rabbits.
C．His experience of travelling.
54．Being a character of To Kill a Mockingbird, Truman Capote felt________.
A．proud B．unsatisfied C．surprised
55．The text is mainly about ________.

Summer is here. One of the best ways to cool off on a hot summer day is to jump into a swimming pool. Swimming is great exercise, and a trip to a pool or beach is a good way to have fun with friends. 56．______________, so it’s important to stay safe as you do it. Here are a few things you can do to swim safely.
●Swim only in areas set for swimming.
Don’t swim unless there is a lifeguard（救生员）on duty. If you’re on a beach near the ocean, this is especially important. In some places, fast currents（急流）can sweep swimmers away without warning. So if a sign says “no swimming”, please take care.
●Be careful when diving（跳水）into the water headfirst.
Most pools have deep ends where diving is safe. In natural water, don’t dive unless you know that the w a t e r i s d e e p e n o u g h.57．______________,c a u s i n g i n j u r y（伤害）o r d e a t h.
●Make sure you have a partner with you.
Nobody knows what will happen while you are swimming. If something goes wrong, you can get help from that person as soon as possible. In this situation, 58．______________.
●Pay close attention to children’s safety.
Kids who don’t know how to swim should wear life jackets. But by themselves they are not enough, 59．______________ . If you have a pool at home, put a fence（围栏）around it in case children fall in. And if a child disappears, check the pool first.
I am Canadian. I started learning French when I was 10 years old. But my whole experience with the language was in the classroom. All of that changed, however, during my last summer of high school. As a 17-year-old girl, I flew across the country by myself for the first time! I headed for Quebec to live in the province with a French-speaking host family, who didn’t speak any E nglish. And I would learn French at a local school.
On the first day of school, all of us students were given a test to determine（测定）our language level. We were required to speak only French all summer.
I made every effort to communicate in a second language by making new friends, seeing movies and even ordering food from restaurants in French. Though I couldn’t understand most of it at the very beginning, the whole experience was exciting and refreshing.
On weekends, my classmates and I took trips to different places around the province. On one trip, we went whale watching on the St. Lawrence River. Even though it was raining, we could see huge whales swimming around our boat. The most memorable part of our trip was a visit to historic Quebec City. I walked along the stone streets, took pictures of the European-style（欧式的）buildings, and learned some stories there.
Finally my efforts paid off! At the end of the summer, I was able to communicate pretty well. I
couldn’t wait to go back to school and talk with my French teacher. Being fully immersed（沉浸）in a French-speaking environment was a valuable learning experience. And it could be the main reason for my improvement in French.
60．When did the writer fly alone for the first time?
61．How did the local school d etermine the students’ language level?
62．Did the writer enjoy the experience of communicating in French?
63．What did the writer think of the visit to historic Quebec City?
64．What could be the main reason for the writer’s improvement in French?
第一节语篇翻译阅读下面的短文，将划线部分译成英文或中文。（共5小题，计10分）Do you enjoy hitting the books? It doesn’t mean you enjoy beating your books with your hand. That may be reasonable if you don’t understand something inside your books. Hitting the books just means t hat you are studying hard. You can learn a lot when you hit the books. 65．Especially before exams, most students spend a lot of time hitting the books to get good grades.
This is just one example of expressions that can’t be understood by taking them apart（分开）word by word. Expressions like this are called idioms（习语）. They are an important part of a culture’s language. Languages and cultures are closely connected. One example of an idiom in the Chinese language is “dui niu tan qin”, or “to play the lute（拨弦乐器）to a cow.” 66. 这意味着某人在说话或写作时不考虑其听众或读者。
Let’s get back to idioms that begin with the word “hit”. 67. There are many of them in English, but it’s not that easy for you to understand.
One common idiom you may hear in English is “hit the road”. It means to leave or to go. You can say, “Hey, I need to hit the road. Can we talk about this another time?” Or simply, “It’s time to hit the road.” When you are tired and you want to go to bed, you can say, “I need to hit the hay（干草）.” It means you want to go to sleep. 68．That’s because a bed was often a big bag with hay inside in the past.

Let’s hit the road to learn some and try to use them.

B: Fantastic! Could you please tell me more about it when you are back?
A: 74. I’ll see you in a few days. Talk to you soon.
B: Thank you. Have a nice journey!
