As sixth graders, kids were separating into groups, but I wasn't sure where I belonged．
Our teacher gave us a task called "secret friends" for the coming week．We were supposed to do nice things our friends without letting them know who was doing it．or in their bags．Before doing the task, with our eyes closed, from a basket, we a name of a classmate who we were to secretly befriend over the next five days．
Soon, the task was turned into a competition of giving instead of notes．Everyone was getting cool presents except me．My friend exactly what the teacher had told us．So I received nothing but hand-made cards with nice words about me．

My grandmother wouldn't want it．" The girls laughed at my words and went out of the bathroom．Washing my hands, I let the water run through my fingers I thought about my words．It wasn't like me to say things like that．
"I'm your secret friend．" It was Rochelle．" I' m sorry about the gift," she said to me, tears running down her face． From a poor family, she was a target(目标) at school for those with rich parents．Yet she just took all the terrible treatment silently．
I was sick to my stomach as my words ran through my mind．She had heard everything．How could I have been so unkind?
Later I learned she had felt bad all week about not being able to leave me any cool present and her mum had given up her only luxury（奢侈品）．
And I had destroyed everything for her．
I told her that I had only said those things to try to fit in.

Before I started school, people felt that I was not going to be successful．At the age of four I started speech lessons because I could not speak well enough for anyone to understand me.
The first grade was a struggle (挣扎)．I had difficulty speaking, I also couldn’t learn to read．The second grade was not much better．I still struggled with the inability to read．In the third grade a new school was built. It was near my home. I went
there with my parents and helped to get the school ready so that we could move to the new one. However, things didn’t get better for the next two years.
It was in the fifth grade．Mrs．Wakefield was my teacher, and she was a good teacher．She did not make me feel unconfident. Instead, she did her best to let me know that I could be whatever I wanted to be．And that is just what I did． For the past 22 years, I have been a fifth grade teacher．Because of Mrs．Wakefield's influence on my life, I am now encouraging students who have had difficulties in their lives to believe that they can deal with any difficulty successfully and become someone．I have won many awards(奖项) up to now, such as Teacher of the Year．I think I should thank my fifth grade teacher. She believed in me and helped me to be all that I could be．

The practice of students endlessly copying letters and sentences from a blackboard is a thing of the past. With the coming of new technologies like computers and smart phone, writing by hand has become something of old skill. However, while today’s educators are using more and more technology in their teaching, many believe handwriting skills are still necessary for students to be successful--both in school and in life.
Virginia Berninger, professor of educational psychology(心理学) at the University of Washington, says it’s important to continue teaching handwriting and help children learn the skill of writing by hand.
Berninger and her workmates carried out a study that looked at the ability of students to complete different writing tasks---both on a computer and by hand. The study, published in 2009, found that when writing with a pen and paper, people wrote longer articles and more complete sentences.
In a more recent study, Berninger looked at what role spelling plays in a student’s writing skills and found that how well children spell is tied to how well they can write. “Spelling makes some of the thinking parts of the brain active which helps us get our vocabulary, word meaning and ideas. It is allowing our written language to connect with ideas.” Berninger said.
Spelling helps students translate ideas into words in their mind first and then to transcribe(转换) “those words in the mind into written symbols(标志) on paper or keyboard and screen,” the study said. Seeing the words in the “” helps children not only to turn their ideas into words, says Berninger, but also to notice spelling mistakes when they write the words down and to correct them over time.
“In our computer age, some people believe that we don’t have to teach spelling because we have spell checks,” she said. “But until a child has spelling ability of about a fifth grade level, they won’t have the knowledge to choose the correct spelling among the choices given by the computer.”
53. Which of the following best shows the role of spelling?
A. Spelling improves one’s memory of words. B. Spelling ability is closely tied to writing ability.
C. Spelling benefits the translation from words into ideas. D. Spelling slows down finding exact words to express ideas.
54. What does “” in paragraph 5 mean?
A. Window. B. Emotion. C. Picture. D. Imagination.
55. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Computers can help people with their choice of words. B. Spell checks can take the place of spelling teaching.
C. Handwriting still has a place in today’s classrooms.D. Spelling ability develops fast in the fifth grade.
You are given many chances in life to choose to be a victim(受害者) or creator. When you choose to be a victim, the world is a cold and difficult place. “” did things to you which caused all of your pain and suffering. “They” are wrong and bad, and life is terrible as long as “they” are around. Or you may blame yourself for all your problems, then internalizing(内化)your victimization. The truth is, your life is likely to stay that way as long as you feel a need to blame yourself or others.
Those who choose to be creators look at life quite differently. They know there are persons who might like to control their lives, but they don’t let this get in the way. They know they have their weaknesses, yet they don’t blame themselves when they fail. Whatever happens, they have choice in the matter. They believe their dance with each sacred(神圣的)moment of life is a gift and that storms are a natural part of life which can bring the rain needed for emotional and spiritual growth.
Victims and creators live in the same physical world and deal with many of the same problems, yet their experience of life is different worlds. Victims are easy to be in anger, guilt, and other emotions that cause others--and even themselves--to feel like victims, too. Creators choose love, inspiration, and other qualities which inspire（鼓舞）not only themselves, but all around them. Both victims and creators always have choice to decide the direction of their lives.
In fact, all of us play the victim or the creator at different points in our lives. One person, on losing a job or a special relationship, may feel as if it is the end of the world and go into terrible suffering for months, years, or even a lifetime. Another with the same experience may choose to first experience the sadness, then accept the loss and soon move on to be a powerful creative strength in his life.
In every moment and every situation, you can choose to have fuller, richer life by setting a clear goal to change the victim within, and by inviting into your life the powerful creator that you are.
56. What does the word “
A. People and things around you. B. Chances and problems.
C. Creators and their choices. D. Victims and their sufferings.
57. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Creators have the ability to predict future life. B. Creators deal with ups and downs of life wisely.
C. Victims can influence more people than creators. D. Victims and creators face quite different things in life.
58. The examples mentioned in Paragraph 4 show that ________.
A. strong feelings of sufferings in life pull people into victims. B. people need family support to deal with sufferings in life.
C. it takes creators quite a long time to clear out their pains. D. one’s experiences decide his attitude toward his life.
59. What is the writer’s purpose in writing this passage?
A. To describe victims and creators. B. To compare victims with creators.
C. To suggest changing from victims to creators. D. To explain the relation between victims and creators.

Have you had this experience? You are watching a movie. A man is shooting(射击) on the screen. The picture is so real that you think he is shooting at you.
Three-dimensional(3D)movies use special technology to make pictures seem more real and exciting than
So far we can only see 3D movies in the cinema with a special screen and projector(放映机）. But soon, we will be able to watch them in our living rooms. Last month, Woods Company told reporters that it plans to bring 3D televisions to homes in the near future.
“The 3D train is on the track, and we are ready to drive it home,” said the President. 3D movies and TV programs are fun to watch, but do you know how they are made? It is much easier to understand if we do an experiment.
Hold one of your fingers up at arm’s length and close one eye. Then try closing the other eye. As you move between open eyes, you should see your finger “jumping” left and right against the background.
This happens because our two eyes are about 4 cm away from each other. The separation causes each eye to see the world from a different angle(角度). The brain puts these two views together. What you see becomes three-dimensional.
3D movies are made using two video cameras at the same time, which creates two different images（影像）. When the movie plays in a cinema, two projectors put the two images on the screen. With a pair of 3D glasses, the two images are separated and each image only enters one eye. Your brain puts the two pictures back together, and the pictures on the screen become three-dimensional.

65. What does Woods Company plan to do in the near future?
66. What can you see when you move your finger between open eyes?

74. One possible version:
I can understand you because I also like doing experiments very much.
In my opinion, your mother is right. It’s dangerous to do experiments at home. You may get hurt. So first you should understand your mother. It’s natural for your mother to worry about your safety. It’s better for you to do experiments at school. Your teacher can help you when necessary. If you prefer to do experiments at home, you can ask your parent to be with you.
I hope what I said can help you.
