Many girls didn’t know they could participate or even be good at sports, but I never needed to be told that because I grew up with my grandmother who was a great Olympian. Even today, many girls need that extra nod in sports, but where can they get it? Winners Never Quit by Mia Hamm Players in Pigtails by Shana Corey This picture book has a great This book takes the story of message about how important the All-American Girls attitude is in sports. I especially love Professional Baseball League the main character who is a child. and personalizes it for young This makes little girls and boys find readers. Many young girls who themselves in similarly frustrating love sports more than princess will like the main situation. You will find yourself saying “Winners Never character and hopefully understand her desire to do Quit” a lot reading this book. what she loves.
Wilma Unlimited by Kathleen Krull It’s a true story of Wilma Rudolph, an African-American Olympian who, despite having polio(小儿麻 痹 ) as a child, became the first American woman ever to win three gold medals at one Olympic Games. What did Wilma have in her corner? Not much more than great determination. This story is incredibly inspiring and the illustrations(插图 ) by David Diaz bring the amazing facts straight to your heart. 21. What do we know about Winners Never Quit?
Basketball Belles by Sue Macy This book is set in 1896 and the attractive illustrations by Matt Collins take readers back to that time. The author takes you back into that gymnasium and makes you see not only how amazing that first game was for those devoted women who played in it, but also how important it was to all the women that have played basketball ever since.

B Four million children are caught up in the war in Syria. Thirteen-year-old Rabia is one of them. Tall and thin, she sits shaking in a yellow T-shirt at the Al Marj settlement, close to the Lebanese-Syrian border. Home for Rabia was once a two-story house near Damascus. Now it is a tent shared with her nine family members. Rabia’s face is covered with dirt, and she is tired and cold. She has just finished work, picking up potatoes that fell from a truck. Her typical day starts at 4 a.m., and she works a double shift that lasts about 16 hours, putting potatoes into bags. The only choice for her is that she can choose the first eight hours or the second eight hours. For this, she gets paid about $8 a day. Working means Rabia misses school. Back in her village, she was the best in her class and good at everything. Her favorite subjects were Arabic literature and math. But, like many children now living in the settlements — there are no official refugee（难民）camps in Lebanon — that was Rabia’s old life. Life before war, before her family moved five times to escape the bombs, before leaving behind her bedroom, her toys and her friends without packing a bag, before “half the people I know” were dead. B. Shana Corey C. Kathleen Krull
The old life was full of laughter with her sister, Wala. But Wala, 14, got married two days ago to an 18-year-old Lebanese. Rabia is happy for her sister. Life in the settlement is tough — the children have nowhere to play, the bathing is poor and sexual abuse is out of control. You can’t blame parents — often confused, illiterate and poor — who want to marry off their daughters. They fear for their safety. Increasing numbers of Rabia’s girlfriends are getting married. Once in rural Syria, a girl got married at 16. According to UNICEF, the age is now dropping to 12 or 13. It is no secret that Lebanese men want to marry Syrian refugee girls, who work hard and don’t ask for anything. 24. Where is the passage most likely to have been taken from? A. A news report. magazine. 25. The underlined word “shift” in Para. 3 probably refers to ______. A. the extra task working period 26. The writer's purpose for writing Para. 4 is to ______. A. present the dream of Rabia C. predict the future of Syrian girls C Why are newspapers and TV broadcasts filled with disaster, corruption and incompetence? It may be because we’re drawn to depressing stories without realizing, according to psychologists. When you read the news, sometimes it can feel like the only things reported are terrible, depressing events. Why do the media concentrate on the bad things in life, rather than the good? In fact, many people often say that they would prefer good news. The researchers present their experiment as solid evidence of a so called “negativity bias(偏 见)”, psychologists’ term for our collective hunger to hear, and remember bad news. It isn’t just delight in other people’s misfortune, the theory goes, but that we’ve evolved to react quickly to potential threats. Bad news could be a signal that we need to change what we’re doing to avoid danger. As you’d expect from this theory, there’s some evidence that people respond quicker to negative words. In lab experiments, flash the word “cancer”, “bomb” or “war” up at someone and they can hit a button in response quicker than if that word is “baby”, “smile” or “fun”. We are also able to recognize negative words faster than positive words, and even tell that a word is going to be unpleasant before we can tell exactly what the word is going to be. There’s another interpretation (解释)that researchers put on their evidence: we pay attention to bad news, because on the whole, we think the world is more hopeful than it actually is. When it comes to our own lives, most of us believe we’re better than average, and that, like the cliches, we expect things to be all right in the end. This pleasant view of the world makes bad news all the more surprising and arresting. It is only against a light background that the dark spots are highlighted. B. show the damage of the war D. compare the life before war and now B. the low pay C. the potato factory. D. the B. A book review. C. A history book. D. A travel
So our attraction to bad news may be more complex than just journalistic prejudice or a hunger springing from the darkness within. 27. What is “negativity bias” according to psychologists? A. It is one’s delight in others’ misfortune. B. It is one’s habit of reacting quickly to potential threats. C. It is a signal with which we can avoid danger. D. People are born to hear and remember bad news. 28. What can we infer from the passage? A. depressing bad news. B. It is true that there are no good stories to be reported. C. People unconsciously pay more attention to bad news. D. People like to hear pleasant words rather than bad words. 29. What will be read first by most readers according to the theory? A. Movie star arrested for taking drugs. B. Movie star went on a campaign for ASL disease. C. Movie star accepts Ice Bucket Challenge D. Movie star awarded the third Oscar in three years. 30. What causes people to focus more on bad news than on good news? A. The world is believed to be more hopeful than it actually is. B. It is expected things will be all right in the end. C. The world is believed to be full of darkness. D. It is believed that we are better than others. D Due to the increasing number of violence acts produced in schools all over the world, more and more parents prefer to have their children educated at home rather than at school. This way they can assure their safety and well-being, although teachers and school representatives are trying to improve the situation in schools by increasing the number of the persons in charge with the safety of the students. The main reason for violence acts are the films and cartoons that fill the children’s time. They want to do everything. They watch on TV and never think at the consequences, and they may hurt a classmate or a teacher. Journalists only feel like reporting
On the other hand, parents are not fully satisfied with the children’s results obtained in classes and they consider private classes would have better results. When a teacher has to watch 30 students in class he can’t probably see what each of them is doing, how he is writing, or if he understands the explanations. At home the teacher can explain in details everything the child doesn’t understand as many times as he considers proper. And many times. the child grows fond of the teacher at home, who becomes his best friend, and who helps him whenever he needs someone to talk to. However, the best solution would be a mixture between the education received at school and that at home, because school makes children communicate and socialize. Keeping a child at home for fear there might happen something bad to him only makes the child’s character weak and prevents him from knowing what real life is. Staying in a crystal ball only does harm to the child. All in all, schools have been created to help children, not to harm them, so it’s best to keep children in these special places, where they learn, laugh, have fun and make new friends. 31. The writer’s purpose in writing the text is to ______. A. teach parents the ways to keep theft children safe B. show solutions to developing children’s character C. explain the main reason for violence acts in schools D. analyze an education problem and give opinions 32. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage? A. Advantages and Disadvantages of Private Classes B. Who is to Blame. Parents or Schools? C. Which is Better, School Study or Home Study D. The Relationship between Teachers and Children 33. Parents prefer to have their children educated at home because the following EXCEPT that A. More and more violence acts occur in schools B. Parents want to improve their children's grades C. Parents are concerned about their children’s safety D. The education system is far from satisfactory 34. What does“a crystal ball”in the passage refer to? A. A toy that can be used for entertainment. B. A safe and comfortable environment. C. An object that is made of crystal. D. A setback that is hard to over come. 35. We call infer from the passage that ______. A. violence TV programs have bad effects on children’s behavior B. the teacher at home is more patient than the teacher at school C. children today are weak from lack of sense of right and wrong D. there ale too many students in class for a teacher to teach

We all feel that having a knowledge of first aid is of vital importance. As we know, accidents and injuries can occur anytime and anywhere. Being prepared for emergency situations and being able to give first aid when needed can make a difference in a severe injury before proper medical treatment is given. Therefore, we suggest that our school should launch some related activities to publicize the knowledge of first aid. For instance, courses on first aid can be offered, from which we can learn more professional knowledge in various situations. What’s more, posters about the treatment for different injuries can be put up in every corner of our campus. Finally, our school can organize the rescue drills to provide a stage for students to practice and gain hands-on experience in first aid. I’m looking forward to your solid support. Yours, Li Hua （听力原文） Text 1 W: I’m worried about those classes I missed when I was sick. M: Don’t be so upset. We’ll help you out. Text 2 W: Congratulations, Tom! Our teacher said that you had done the best in the English test in our class. M: Really? Do you know what my score is? Are you still one of the best in our class? Text 3 M: Did you watch the football match on TV yesterday evening? W: No, I didn’t. I had dinner with a friend and I didn’t go back home until eight o’clock. Text 4 W: I’m so happy to see you back in class again. Three weeks is a long time. M: I really had a great time seeing all the sights. There’s nothing like taking it easy once a year. Text 5 M: I had a big argument with the boss yesterday. I demanded a raise. He got really angry! W: What were you thinking? M: I just don’t think that I’m being paid enough. W: How can you say that? You already make twice as much as I do! Text 6 W: I love this pair of jeans. M: Please try them on if you like. The fitting room is right over there. W: Thank you. M: Do they fit? W: No, this size is a little too large for me. Have you got anything smaller? M: Yes, I’ll show you. Oh, sorry, they are all sold out. W: When can I get a smaller one? M: In a week at the earliest. W: That’s too long for me. I cannot wait until then. M: Maybe you can find some in the jeans shop next door. W: Do you think so?
M: You can try. W: Thanks. Bye-bye. Text 7 W: Do you have good friends in your class, Michael? M: Not really. But I have some good friends in other classes. W: How come? Is it difficult to get along with your classmates? M: Not exactly. My classmates just don’t share my interests. W: What are your interests then? M: I like sports and I play sports every day, but my classmates don’t. Some of them like reading while others like music. So in my spare time I seldom play with them. W: Then how did you get to know your friends in the other classes? M: Well, two of them are my neighbors. We’ve been playing together since we were babies. And the other boys are their classmates. W: I see. Text 8 M: Excuse me, Miss. I’m new to this area and I’m running out of gas, and I can’t seem to find a gas station anywhere around here. Can you direct me to the nearest one? W: No problem. First you take a left at the light. Go west for about a mile and there will be one on your left, next to the post office. M: I didn’t quite catch that. Would you mind going over the directions one more time? W: No problem. Take a left at the light and continue on that street until you see the post office on your left. The gas station is right next to the post office. You can’t miss it. M: Thanks. Does the gas station accept credit cards? W: No, it doesn’t. But there’s a bank across the street from it, and you can get money there if you want. M: That’s probably what I’ll do. W: You also might consider buying a map at the gas station. This is a rural area, so it’s very easy to get lost. M: I think I’ll do that. I really appreciate your help. W: It’s my pleasure. Text 9 M: So, Jane, where are we meeting these friends of yours tonight? W: Oh, didn’t I tell you? We’re going to see a movie. M: Yeah? What movie? W: I’m not sure. I know it’s one of those action movies. M: Oh, no! Can’t we see a romantic movie? Action movies are too violent and stupid. W: I know, but my friends really want to see this one. M: OK, then what about dinner? Should we take them out for some Chinese food? W: I’d prefer Mexican. I’m not too good with chopsticks. M: All right, I wouldn’t want you to spill food on yourself in front of your old friends. W: They’re not just my old friends. You know one of them, Tina. M: Yeah, we live in the same town and we went to the same school. W: She’s beautiful and funny. I like her very much. M: Yeah, she is a nice girl. Are we taking the bus? W: No, the subway is faster. Did I tell you we have to be there in 30 minutes? Text 10 In England, people often talk about the weather because they can experience four seasons in the same day. In the morning, the weather can be warm just like in spring. An hour later, black clouds might come and then it might rain. The weather might get a little cold. In the late afternoon, it will often be sunny. The sun will begin to shine, and it will be like summer at this time of day. In England, people can also have summer in winter, or have winter in summer. So sometimes in winter they can swim, and sometimes in summer they should wear warm clothes. If you go to England, you will see that some English people usually take an umbrella or a raincoat with them even when it is sunny in the morning, but you should not laugh at them. If you don’t take an umbrella or a raincoat, you might regret it later in the day.
