A Visitors to central Austin Texas would be easy to miss a small, old house called the O. Henry Museum. William Sydney Porter(1862-1910)---better known as O. Henry, was one of America’s best loved writers of short stories. Beginning in 1893, he lived here. It was saved from destruction, moved, and turned into a museum in 1934. The museum is a good way to learn about the interesting life of him. William Porter Sydney rented this house and lived with his wife Athol and daughter for about 2 years. Many objects in the museum belonged to the Porters. Others didn’t, but are in the house to recreate the way it looked during their lifetime. Porter worked at a pharmacy, farm, land office and bank. He also loved words and writing. The museum has special proof of Porter’s love of language---his dictionary. It is said that he read every word in it. Porter started a small publication called “The Rolling Stone”. He wasn’t being published early on, so he published himself. His funny stories, poems, and drawings were published in the magazine. But it was too costly to continue for long, so he closed the project after about one year. Other troubles would lead the Porters to leave Austin. Porter was accused of financial wrongdoing at the bank and lost his job. Fearing a trial, he fled the country. But he returned because his wife was dying. After her death, he faced the trial and was found guilty. He served three and a half years in a federal prison in Ohio. Porter would keep his time in prison a secret. But there was one good thing about it. It provided him with time to write. By the time of his release, he had published 14 stories and was becoming well-known as O. Henry. Porter would later move to New York City and find great success there. He published over 380 stories in the last 8 years of his life. 56. What does the author want to tell us in the passage? A. O. Henry’s experience in prison B. The objects in the O. Henry Museum
C. O. Henry’s achievement in literature D. A brief introduction of O. Henry’s life 57. What is the author’s purpose of writing Paragraph 3? A. To attract more visitors to the O. Henry Museum B. To show the jobs O. Henry did
C. To show O. Henry’s publication called “The Rolling Stone” D. To show O. Henry’s early love of words and writing 58. Which of the following shows the right order about O. Henry? ① He was committed to prison. ② He settled down in central Austin, Texas. ③ His wife died. ④ He started a small publication called “The Rolling Stone”. ⑤ He moved to New York City. A. ②④③①⑤ B. ②③①④⑤ C. ②④③⑤① D. ②①③④⑤
59. What can be inferred from the passage? A. Most of O. Henry’s short stories were finished in prison. B. O. Henry didn’t start his career as a successful writer when living in Austin.
C. O. Henry was born in a small, old house which is called the O. Henry Museum now. D. O. Henry spent his last life in the small, old house in Texas.
B In December, 2010, many American newspapers publish a list of the best books of the year. Freedom by Jonathan Franzen is one of the most repeatedly praised books on this year’s list of favorites. It tells about the ups and downs of the Berglund family over many years. Mr. Franzen fills the book with sharp observations about American politics, culture and society.
Jennifer Egan’s book A Visit from the Goon and Squad takes place in 13 chapters over 40 years. The story moves back and forth in time, from different viewpoints. One main character is former rock musician Bennie Salazar who works for a record company. The other main character is a troubled young wo man named Sasha who works for Bennie. The reader learns about their past and those of their friends. The main character in The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman is a failing English language newspaper publisher in Rome, Italy. Each chapter of the book tells about a reporter or editor working for this paper. Their stories are filled with intelligence and great personality. Two of the most popular non-fiction books of 2010 were about rock and roll stars. Just Kids is by rock singer Patti Smith. It tells about her friendship with the artist Robert Mapplethorpe in the 1960s and 19 70s before they became famous. Life is the autobiography of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. It is an honest and exciting look at the development of rock and roll and the wild times this famous band has experienced. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand tells about a man named Louis Zamperini. She tells about his extraordinary survival story after his plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean during World War Two. Stacy Schiff has received great praise for her book Cleopatra: A Life. It tells about one of the most misrepresented and famous women in history, Cleopatra. She ruled ancient Egypt about 2,000 years ago. One critic said Ms. Schiff has brought Cleopatra to life by unearthing her story from centuries of lies. 60. The following books are related to music EXCEPT _____. A. A Visit from the Goon Squad C.

61. If your major is the history of ancient Africa, you may pay attention to _____. A. Freedom by Jonathan Franzen B. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

C Jim suffered heart problems. In conversation he expressed little joy and it seemed that his life was drawing to a close.
When his heart problems led to an operation, Jim went through it successfully, and a full recovery was expected. Within days, however, his heart was not beating properly. Jim was rushed back to operation, but nothing was found to explain the cause of his illness. He died on the operating table on the day before his 48th birthday. Dr. Bruce Smoller, a psychologist, had had many conversations with him, and the more he learned, the stranger he realized Jim’s case was. When Jim was a child, his father, a teacher, suffered a heart attack and stayed home to recover. One morning Jim asked his father to look over his homework, promising to come home from school at noon to pick it up. His father agreed, but when Jim returned his father had died. Jim’s father was 48. “I think all his life Jim believed he killed his father,” Dr. Smoller says. “He felt that if he had not asked him to look at his homework, his father would not have lived. Jim had been troubled by the idea. The operation was the trial he had expected for forty years.” Smoller believes that Jim willed himself not to live to the age of 48. Jim’s case shows the powerful role that attitude plays in physical health, and that childhood experiences produce far–reaching effect on the health of grown–ups. Although most cases are less direct than Jim’s, studies show that childhood events, besides genes, may well cause such midlife diseases as cancer, heart disease and mental illness.
63．Jim was rushed back to operation because A．his heart didn’t work well C．his life was drawing to a close
B．he expected a full recovery D．the first one wasn’t well performed
64．What made Dr. Smoller feel strange about Jim’s case? A．Jim died at a young age. B．Jim died on the operating table. C．Both Jim and his father died of the same disease. D．Jim’s death is closely connected with his father’s. 65．From Smoller’s words, we can infer that A．Jim’s father cared little about his study B．Smoller agreed that Jim did kill his father C．Jim thought he would be punished some day D．Smoller believed Jim wouldn’t live to the age of 48 66．Which of the following could have strong effect on one’s physical health according to the text? a． One’s genes. b． One’s life in childhood. c． One’s physical education. d．The date of one’s birthday. e．The opinions one has about something. A．a, b, d B．a, b, e C．a, c, e D．b, c, d C A. a c d B. a b e B. a b e C. b c d C. b c d D. c d e D. c d e .
A. a c d
D Traveling should be easy and enjoyable, and one of the ways to make sure your trip remains fun is to know exactly how to keep your valuables safe. If you are traveling alone, distribute (分散) your money through your luggage. Place most of it in a wallet and put the wallet in your mai n suitcase or bag. Make a rough estimate of how much money you will need on the journey, till you reach your destination. Add, say, $100 to that. Place this money in a different wallet and carry this in
your pocket. Spend from this wallet till you get to your destination. If you are traveling with someone, distribute the money among yourselves. Instead of wearing your jewelry(珠宝), you can put your jewelry at the bottom of your suitcase or bag. DO NOT carry it in your purse; just in case somebody is very quick in stealing your purse; or in case you misplace your purse. In addition, if you are going to be frequently opening your purse for things like tickets and phone numbers, what if you accidentally just drop it? Have you ever seen a mini backpack purse? It looks really fashionable and is very smart. Plus, it’s really convenient to use. The best thing to do is to sling(悬挂) the mini backpack purse in the front, like a baby carrier. There are two big advantages to do this: one, your hands remain free to carry your luggage and ot her things; and two, your purse is always monitored, and it is just under your nose. Credit cards are very useful in many ways. But if you misplace your credit card, it is quite easy for someone else to find it and use it to his/her maximum benefit before you even realize you have lost it! If you lose cash, you lose only that much cash as you are carrying. But a lost credit card means the money in your bank account is lost. So always try to use cash instead of credit card while traveling. 67. Which of the following statements does the author probably disagree with? A. Putting your money in different wallets. B. Putting your jewelry in your purse. C. Carrying a mini backpack purse. D. Using cash instead of credit cards. 68. Carrying a mini backpack purse can help you because _____. A. it is convenient to carry and monitor. B. it is easy for you to carry your baby. C. it reduces the burden on your back. D. it can be used to carry more things.
69. What can we learn from the text? A. You shouldn’t spend money until you reach your destination. B. Putting jewelry at the bottom of a bag is safer. C. One should carry a fashionable backpack purse while traveling. D. Credit cards are not as convenient as cash while traveling. 70. What is the main idea of the text? A. Ways to make traveling fun and enjoyable. B. Tips on carrying valuables safely while traveling. C. Advice on travelers’ personal safety. D. Things to consider before traveling. 第二节 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容， 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 More than one million children in the United States do not go to school. Instead, they learn at home. They are taught by adults, like tutors (家庭教师). 71 Educational companies, libraries, and the Internet provide many families with teaching material. 72 Some choose it because of their religious beliefs. Others say it provides more
time for the family to be together. They say home offers a better place for learning. Some parents believe home-schooling avoids problems of traditional schools. These include classes that have too many students. Critics, however, say children need to attend school with other children. They also say that some home-schooled children do not get a good education. 73
Some states(州) do not require much preparation made by parents or testing of children. Other states have more requirements for home-schooling. Home-schooling in the United States began when the country was established. In farm areas, people often lived far from a school. Widespread home-schooling took place until about the middle of the 19th century. Then, in 1852, the state of Massachusetts passed the first law requiring children to attend school.
Over the years, the American public education system strengthened and grew. By the 1960s and 1970s, however, some Americans believed that traditional education was not helping their children. 74 Home-schooling expert Linda Dobson says many people have helped the movement grow. She says some parents began teaching their children at home after changes in tax laws forced some private religious schools to close. That happened in the 1980s. And, most recently, she says many kinds of people have joined the movement. 75 They
represent many races, religions and political beliefs. Ms. Dobson says the number of home-schooled children has increased by an estimated fifteen to twenty percent each year during the last fifteen years. A. So a number of parents began home-schooling. B. They are mainly rich people. C. However, all fifty American states and the District of Columbia permit home-schooling. D. She says these include rich people and poor people. D. Home-schooling is not accepted by all the people. E. Parents choose home-schooling for several reasons. F. Most often, their parents are their teachers.

10. member 改为 members 范文： Recently our class has had a heated discussion about whether to call off doing morning exercises. Different students have different opinions. 70% of the students disagree with it. For one thing, they think nothing is more important than health and doing morning exercises can make them strong. For another, doing morning exercises can make their brains relaxed, which will improve the efficiency of their studying. On the contrary, the rest of the students consider it a waste of valuable time. Besides, being excited after morning exercises, they find it difficult to get down to study. In my opinion, we shouldn’t stop doing morning exercises. Doing morning exercises can keep us healthy so that we can devote ourselves to studying hard.
