EDGEWOOD—Every morning at Dixie Heights High school, customers pour into a special
experiment :the district’s first coffee shop run mostly by students with special
Well before classes start, students and teachers order Lattes, Cappuccinos and
Then, during the first period, teachers call in orders on
their room phones, and students make deliveries.
By closing time at 9.20 a.m. , the shop usually sells 90 drinks.
“Whoever made the chi tea, Ms. Schwartzman says it was good, ”Christy McKinley ,
a second year student , announced recently, after hanging up with the teacher.
The shop is called the Dixie PIT, which stands for Power in Transition. Although
some of the students are not disabled, many are, and the PIT helps them prepare for
life after high school.
They learn not only how to run a coffee shop but also how to deal with their affairs.
They keep a timecard and receive paychecks, which they keep in check registers.
Special-education teachers Kim Chevalier and Sue Casey introduced the Dixie PIT
from a similar program at Kennesaw Mountain High School in Georgia.
Not that it was easy. Chevalier’s first problem to overcome was product-related.
Should schools be selling coffee? What about sugar content?
Kenton County Food Service Director Ginger Gray helped. She made sure all the
drinks, which use non-fat milk, fell within nutrition（营养）guidelines.
The whole school has joined in to help.
Teachers agreed to give up their lounge(休息室)in the morning. Art students
painted the name of the shop on the wall. Business students designed the paychecks.
The basketball team helped pay for cups.
24,What is the text mainly about?
A. Best-selling coffee.
B. Bpecial educational program.
C. Government support for schools.
D. A new type of teacher-student relationship.
25,The Dixie PIT program was introduced in order to .
A. raise money for school affairs
B. do some research on nutrition
C. develop students’ practical skills D. supply teachers with drinks
26,How did Christy McKinley know Ms. Schwartzman’s opinion of the chi tea?

Why is pink or purple a color for girls and blue or brown for boys?
The answer depends largely on cultural values as well as personal experiences.
To the Egyptians, green was a color that represented the hope and joy of spring, while
for Muslims, it means heaven. Red is a symbol of good luck in many cultures. In China,
children are given money in a red envelope to bring good fortune in the New Year.
For many nations, blue is a symbol of protection and religious beliefs. Greek people
often wear a blue necklace hoping to protect themselves against evils（灾祸）.
People’s choice of colors is also influenced by their bodies’ reactions （反
应）toward them. Green is said to be the most restful color. It has the ability to
reduce pain and relax people both mentally and physically. People who work in green
environment have been found to have fewer stomach aches.
Red can cause a person’s blood pressure to rise and increase people’s appetites
（食欲）. Many decorators will include different shades of red in the restaurant.
Similarly, many commercial websites will have a red “Buy Now” button because red
is a color that easily catches a person’s eye.
Blue is another calming color. Unlike red, blue can cause people to lose appetite.
So if you want to eat less, some suggest that eating from blue plates can help.
The next time you are deciding on what to wear or what color to decorate your
room, think about the color carefully.
28．Muslims regard green as a symbol of heaven mainly because of their

A．Colors and Human Beings

C．Colors and Personal Experiences D．The Meaning and Function of Color
D Have you ever had the strange feeling that you were being watched? You turned around and, sure enough, someone was looking right at you! Parapsychologists (灵学家) say that humans have a natural ability to sense when someone is looking at them. To research whether such a“sixth sense”really exists, Robert Baker, a psychologist at the University of Kentucky, did two experiments. In the first one, Baker sat behind unknowing people in public places and stared at the backs of their heads for 5 to 15 minutes. The subjects（受试者）were eating, drinking, reading, studying, watching TV, or working at a computer. Baker made sure that the people could not tell that he was sitting behind them during those periods. Later, when he questioned the subjects, almost all of them said they had no sense that someone was staring at them. For the second experiment, Baker told the subjects that they would be stared at from time to time from behind in a laboratory setting. The people had to write down when they felt they were being stared at and when they weren’t. Baker found that the subjects were no better at telling when they were stared at and when they weren’t. Baker concludes that people do not have the ability to sense when they’re being stared at. If people doubt the outcome of his two experiments, said Baker,“I suggest they repeat the experiments and see for themselves.” 32. The aim of the two experiments is to ________. A．explain when people can have a sixth sense B．study how people act while being watched in the lab C．study whether humans can sense when they are stared at D．prove why humans have a sixth sense
33. The underlined word “outcome” in the last paragraph most probably means
34. In the second experiment, the subjects _________.
A．could tell when they were stared at
B．could tell where they weren’t stared at
C．couldn’t tell who they were stared at or who they stared at
D．couldn’t tell when they were stared at or when they weren’t
35. What can be learned from the passage?
A．People are born with a sixth sense.
B．The experiments support parapsychologists’ idea.
C．The subjects do not have a sixth sense in the experiments.
D．People have a sixth sense in all places.

书面表达 Last Sunday, our class organized a meaningful voluntary activity—we paid a visit
to an orphanage and showed our love for orphans there. The details are as follows. As soon as we arrived, they gave us a warm welcome. We presented the children
with gifts such as books and pencil boxes, which we had prepared in advance. Then we patiently taught them to sing some children’s songs. Before leaving, we took pictures with them to mark the activity. When it was time for us to leave, the children waved their hands, saying that they were grateful for our kindness. We made every effort to bring sunshine to the children’ life and the children’s
bright smiles confirmed that it was worthwhile to do such a job.精品文档 强烈推荐
