But instead of sending me to a school for the deaf, they decided to “mainstream” me. All of my peers and teachers world have normal hearing. I was the only deaf child at Blue Creel Elementary School. From almost the first day there, the other kids made fun of me mainly because of my hearing aid and the way I talked. And I also had difficulty with most of my school work. When the other kids made fun of me, I was sure that I was a bad person. I saw myself as a boy who wasn’t smart enough to keep up with the class. Mrs. Jordan, my 5th grade teacher, changed all of that with a simple three-word phrase.
One morning, she asked the class a question. I read her lips from my front-row seat and immediately raised my hand because I was sure I had the right answer. But when she called on me, I was afraid. Here was an opportunity to impress the powerful teacher and show her I was worthy of her love. Maybe even impress my classmates a little. I didn’t want to blow it. Despite my fears, I took a deep breath and answered Mrs. Jordan’s question. I will never forget what happened next. Mrs. Jordan enthusiastically slammed （跺动） her right foot on the floor and turned her tight hand around in full circle until it pointed directly at me. With sparking eyes and a wide smile she cried, “THAT’S RIGHT STEPHEN!” For the first time in my young life, I was a star. I sat a little taller in my chair. From that day forward, my grades and speech improved greatly. My popularity among my peers increased. It was all because Mrs. Jordan believed in me and wasn’t afraid to express it. “THAT’S RIGHT STEPHEN!” 21．What does the underlined word “mainstream”(in Para 1) mean? A．Encourage a disabled child to live a normal life. B．Include a disabled child in an ordinary class. C．Treat a disabled child with respect. D．Teach a disabled child at home. 22. It can be inferred that when entering Blue Creek Elementary School, the writer . A．was not clever B．could not focus on his study C．lacked confidence D．got along well with other kids 23．From his experience, the writer may conclude that . A．the right words could change someone’s life B．each of us has the courage to be great C．all great heroes made mistakes D．each day is a lucky day 24. What would be the best title for the passage? A. The Reward of Love B. The Power of Confidence C. The Boy Who Overcame Obstacles D. The Teacher Who Made a Difference B More and more people, especially in developed countries, are becoming older. In the United States there are currently over 40 million people aged 65 and over, more than 10 million are over 85. Caring for these senior citizens is becoming a necessity - and a big industry. Traditionally care for the elderly has taken place in an extended family. Grandparents live at home and are helped by other family members. However, as more and more young people enter the work force full time they cannot care for their parents or grandparents any more. There are more than 10,000 organizations that provide care for the elderly; more than 1,000 were founded last year alone. Ordinary people quit their jobs and start a private care centre, where they offer senior citizens their services. One of the most difficult aspects of such an organization is finding the right people to do the
job. Caring for the elderly is not an easy task. It requires skill and patience. Among daily tasks are preparing meals, washing older people or giving them a bath, or simply keeping them company. Many care workers quit because they find it very depressing. It is important to help the elderly stay mobile as long as possible. When they cannot walk or climb stairs they need more help; thus costs become higher. Care workers concentrate on exercises to help them stay mobile. In many cases assisted living replaces round the clock health care. Elderly people need help with some daily tasks but can mostly live on their own. It also costs less than full nursing care. While wealthy Americans turn to private care centers, those who are poorer cannot pay for the services because Medicare does not cover it. Not all countries offer health care provided by the state. In Asia and Africa, for example, older people are cared for by family members. 25．We can infer from the passage______________ A. caring for the elderly will be a prosperous industry B. care organizations have no difficulty finding care workers C. medicare will cover health care for the elderly D. young people hate looking after their parents and grandparents 26. From Paragraph 4, we can learn______________ A. the elderly are grateful for the care workers’ company B. care workers are short of working experiences C. some people are not fit for caring for the elderly D. young people are particular about their work 27. Which statement is TRUE according to the passage? A. Assisted living costs as much as full time nursing care. B. No people can stand the caring work. C. Only America government offer health care. D. In Africa family members look after elderly people. C Sports account for a growing amount of income made on the sales of commercial time by television companies. Many television companies have used sports to attract viewers from particular sections of the general public, and then they have sold audiences to advertisers. An attraction of sport programs for the major U. S. media companies is that events are often held on Saturday and Sunday afternoons—the slowest time periods of the week for general television viewing. Sport events are the most popular weekend programs, especially among male viewers who may not watch much television at other times during the week. This means the television networks are able to sell advertising time at relatively high prices during what normally would be dead time for programming. Media corporations also use sports to attract commercial sponsors that might take their advertising dollars elsewhere if television stations did not report certain sports. The people in the advertising departments of major corporations realize that sports attract male viewers. They also realize that most business travelers are men and that many men make family decisions on the purchases of computers, cars and life insurance. Golf and tennis are special cases for television programming. These sports attract few
viewers, and the ratings(收视率)are unusually low. However, the audience for these sports is attractive to certain advertisers. It is made up of people from the highest income groups in the United States, including many lawyers and business managers. This is why television reporting of golf and tennis is sponsored by companies selling high-priced cars, business and personal computer, and holiday trips. This is also why the networks continue to carry these programs regardless of low ratings. Advertisers are willing to pay high fees to reach high-income consumers and those managers who make decisions to buy thousands of “company cars” and computers, with such viewers, these programs don’t need high ratings to stay on the air. 28. Television sport programs on weekend afternoons______________. A．result in more sport events B．get more viewers to play sports C．make more people interested in television D．bring more money to the television networks 29. Why would weekend afternoons become dead time without sport programs? A．Because there would be few viewers B．Because the advertisers would be off work C．Because television programs would go slowly D．Because viewers would pay less for watching television 30. In many families, men make decision on______________ . A．holiday trips B．sports viewing C．television shopping D．expensive purchases 31. The ratings are not important for golf and tennis programs because______________ . A．their advertisers are carmakers B．their viewers are attracted by sports C．their advertisers target at rich people D．their viewers can afford expensive cars 32. What is the passage mainly about? A．Television viewers are determined by male viewers. B．Rich viewers contribute most to television companies. C．Sports are gaining importance in advertising on television. D．Commercial advertisers are the major sponsors of sport event. D Shakespeare City Walk This 90-minute leisurely walking tour does not go to the Globe Theatre (because everyone already knows it).

Choose a goal that matters, not just easy to win. A meaningful goal—__61__ that truly inspires you to change—requires going deeper. Think about what you want in the coming year, and then ask yourself __62__ you want that. For example, if you want to quit __63__(smoke), ask why do you want to quit? Then, if you want to quit for your health ask why do you want good health? Then, if your answer is to be alive long enough __64__(meet) your grandchildren, ask why do you want to meet your grandchildren? Set up your goals positively. How you describe your goal makes __65__ big difference. Focusing on __66__ you want to “bring into your life—not what you want to avoid—will make you more likely to __67__(actual) pursue it.” Prepare for failure(in a good way)． Moments of failure __68__(be) unavoidable, but most of us abandon the goal entirely when slight failures and setbacks start piling up. At the moment when you fail, often the first instinct(本 能) is to push the goal away. It's so __69__(comfort) to be in that condition of self－doubt or self－criticism and guilt. Your task is not to avoid failures, __70__to plan for them. Ask yourself, how am I likely to
fail? For example, if you're likely to choose unhealthy meals when you're hungry, carry a light snack with you. 第四部分、改错 写作（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节 短文改错（共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 假定英语课上老师要求同桌之间交换修改作文，请你修改你同桌写的以下作文。作文中共 有 10 处语言错误，每句中最多有两处。每处错误仅涉及一个单词的增加、删除或修改。 增加：在缺词处加一个漏子符号（∧）并在其下面写出该加的词。 删除：在错的词下划一横线，并在该词下面写出修改后的词。 注意：1.每处错误及其修改均仅限一词； 2.只允许修改 10 处，多者（从第 11 处起）不计分。 The other day, as I walked to school, I passed small construction area.
