The other children had 36 the tumbling moves months ago. But Megan was still working on them. It simply took her a little longer to learn them.
One day before class, Megan’s father asked to talk to me. “I’m 37 taking Megan out of class,” he said. “Why?” I asked. He said, “She isn’t catching on like the other kids are. I don’t want her to hold them back.” I could see his 38expressionas he said this. Megan’s eyes were looking down as if she wanted to disappear.
“I think you’re making a39 ,” I said. “Megan needs this class, possibly more than the other children need it. I, myself, didn’t start out as a seven-time national champion. I started out as an eight-year-old girl, just like Megan. When I look at Megan, I 40 myself. She works hard.”
“Sir, your daughter 41 never win a competition or even compete, but I promise you that if she keeps trying and believing in herself, her self-respect will be more 42 than any gold medal. I believe in Megan. I believe that she can43 anything she sets out to do.” 4
44 I said these words, Megan looked up at me. Her eyes were filled with tears, and she was smiling like a bud（花蕾）flowering into bloom. Her father hugged me and said in a very low voice, “Thank you. Thank you so much.” He turned to Megan and said, “Honey, it’s time for your class.”
Megan 45 did learn many skills in her own time. More importantly, she never again stood at the back of the line. From that day forward, whenever I asked the children to line up for tumbling, Megan ran to stand in the 46 . 35. A. friends 36. A. made

Does this ever happen to you? Someone introduces you to a friend, you hear his or her name, and then two minutes later, you forget it. Or you go to the same restaurant every day and the owner always says “Hello” to you but you can never remember her name. If this happens, you are typical— actually most people have the problem remembering names.
Here are some ways that can help people remember names.
? C. buy some clothes Repeat the person’s name loud at least three times while you talk together. For example, 6
instead of saying “Nice to meet you.” say “Nice to meet you, Jack (for Sue or whatever the person’s name is).” Instead of saying“Where do you live?” you can say “Where do you live, Jack?”
? Introduce the person by name to someone else right away. Write the name down (with a little information about the person) as soon as possible.
There are other ways which may seem a little strange. However, try them.
? Think of a story using the person’s name. For example, think to yourself, “Jack has
a nice jacket.” Imagine Jack in a nice jacket.
? Think of a rhyme（押韵）for the person’s name. For example, think to yourself, “Jack
would look nice in black.” Imagine Jack wearing black clothes.
All these ways have one thing in common. You must pay attention to the people you meet. You can’t just meet someone, nod your head, say hello, and walk away. Remembering names takes work and practice.
50. The word “typical” probably means “______”.
A. funny B. common C. strange D. careless
51. Which of the following may seem unusual to help remember a name?
A. Repeating the name.
B. Writing the name down. D. Introducing the person to others. C. Making up a story with it.
52. If you want to remember names easily, you must ______.
A. look after the people you meet
B. pay attention to the people you meet
C. nod your head to the people you meet
D. talk politely to the people you meet
Do termites（白蚁）sound delicious? If you were living in Mexico or Thailand or Kenya, the idea of eating insects（昆虫）might not seem strange and unusual to you at all. For thousands of years, insect-eating, has been common practice among many of the world’s people. According to insect-eaters around the world, insects are tasty. “When they are cooked, I find termitesreally delicious,” Arnold Van Huis of Wageningen University in the Netherlands said. Van Huis is an insect scientist. He also studiesinsect-eating. He has traveled the world to learn how different groups of people collect insects and prepare them as food.
Insect fans say insects are not only tasty, they are also nutritious（有营养的）. Many are full of protein, vitamins and minerals. Van Huis is working with other scientists to encourage insect-eating.
According to the United Nations, the world’s population is now almost 7 billion. It is expected to reach 9 billion before 2050. By that time, the need for meat is expected to double. Raising animals such as cows and sheep requires large areas of farmland, and feeding the animals can be expensive. “We have to find other choicesof meat,” Van Huis says. “One good choice is eating insects.”
Raising insects, which are able to live in crowded quarters, requires less land, says Van Huis. Insects are also cheaper to feed, since they can eat food scraps, such as potato skin.
Not only can insects eat our scraps, but also they require much less foodand waterthan cows or sheep. “A cow wastes most of its energy just keeping warm,” Brian Fisher, an insect scientistin the U.S. says. But since insects are cold-blooded, they use more of what they eat to grow.
For insect-eating to become the mainstream, Fisher says people must have a chance to sample delicious, ready-to-eat insects. If you want a try, it is possible to order insect dishes at a few restaurants.
53. What do you know from the first paragraph?
A. Insect-eating has a long history.
B. People cook insects in traditional ways.
C. Insect-eating is unusual and unacceptable.
D. People travel around the world to collect insects.
54. We can infer that ______.
A. insect-eating is common in the U.S.
B. people can benefit from insect-eating
C. insects are more nutritious than animals
D. eating insects is sure to be popular in the future
55. What is probably the best title for this passage?
A. Time to Raise Insects
C. A New Choice for Meat B. Easy Enough to Cook D. A Strange Way of Eating
The requirements for high school graduation have just changed in my community（社区）. As a result, all students must complete sixty hours of service learning, or they can not finish the education in high school. Service learning is a school subject that also helps the community. Examples of service learning include cleaning up a polluted river, working in a soup kitchen, or teaching a student. During a service experience, students must keep a diary and then write a report about what they have learned.
Supporters state that there are many benefits of service learning. Perhaps most importantly, students are forced to think beyond their own interests and realized the needs of others. Students are also able to learn real-life skills that include responsibility, problem-solving, and working as part of a team. Finally, students can think about possible careers（职业）through service learning. For example, if a student wonders what teaching is like, he or she can choose to work in an elementary school classroom a few afternoons each month.
While there are many benefits, people who disagree with service learningpoint out problems with the new requirement. First, they hold their opinion that the main reason students go to school is to learn key subjects and skills. Because service learning takes too much time, students spend less time studying the key subjects. Second, they believe that forcing students to work without pay goes against the law. By requiring service, the school takes away a person’s freedom to choose.
In my opinion, service learning is a great way to contribute to the community, learn new skills, and think about different careers. However, I don’t believe you should force people to help others —the wish to help must come from the heart. I think the best way is one that gives students choices: a student should be able to choose sixty hours of self-study or sixty hours of service. Choice encourages both freedom and responsibility, and as young adults, we must learn to deal with both wisely.
56. Service learning is ______.
A. a way to help the community
B. a must to complete the school report
C. a programme to protect the environment
D. an example to teacher students
57.Supporters believe service learning is mainly for ______.
A. teaching students real-life skills
B. providing students chances of working
C. making students know what others need
D. helping students think about their interests
58. People who disagree with service learning think that ______.
A. forcing students to work goes against the law
B. students must spend more time on key subjects
C. there are more disadvantages than benefits
D. service learning is worthless to students
59. What’s the writer’s opinion on service learning?
A. Students should be more responsible in service learning.
B. Service learning is likely to be less important than self-study.
C. Service learning should be encouraged in more high schools.
D. Students should be free to choose between self-study and service learning.
When I just moved to Los Angeles, I didn’t have a car. 60 , but I wanted to prove them wrong.
I asked my neighbor, Mrs. White, to take me to the bus station in the center of the city so I could try taking the bus home.61 . When I got there, I went inside and got a bus timetable. I looked at the map and worked out that I needed to take three buses to get home.
I bought the tickets and went outside to wait at the bus stop for the Number 8 bus.Soon it came and I got on. I gave my ticket to the bus driver and took a seat. At the right stop, I rang the belland got off. 62 .I waited and waited. A man who was also waiting for the Number 14 bus said that it wasn’t unusual for the bus to be late. Half an hour later, it finally came. To make the matter worse, the third bus broke down halfway and the driver had to fix it. 63 . So when I finally got home, I was very tired. Maybe getting a car in L.A. wasn’t such a bad idea!
