When I was twelve years old, my family was the first black people to move into an all white part of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Many of our new neighbors weren?t very welcoming. Some of them said angrily that we should return to where we came from. The children sometimes threw stones at me or drove me home from school.
Most of my teachers simply took no notice of me, but not Dorothy Bean, my history teacher. Miss Bean was angry at how badly I was being treated, but she didn?t say this to me. Miss Bean showed her respect for me by teaching me just like anyone else. Instead of being unnoticed, I was given a chance to show that I was clever. Miss Bean was the first teacher who ever made me think for myself. She always wanted to know what I thought about difficult questions. Was Thomas Jefferson right to buy Louisiana from France? Why? She expected me to have my own idea. Miss Bean was teaching me that thinking for oneself was the real key to education.
One day, when I was not paying attention in class, Miss Bean suddenly threw an eraser at me. The eraser hit me right on the hand and sent my pencil flying. The whole class was very surprised at first, then started laughing. This event became famous in the school and, because it happened to me, the students wanted to get to know me. So that?s the story of how Dorothy Bean made me her target（靶子）, and how I became just another kid in school.

J. K. Rowling is the writer of Harry Potter, one of the best-sellers in the world.
J. K. Rowling was born in Bristol on July 31st, 1965. She has a younger sister. The girls loved listening to their father reading bedtime stories, especially stories about magical worlds. Rowling wrote her first story, called Rabbit, at the age of six.
After she graduated from the university, Rowling worked as a translator (翻译者) in London. During this time, on a long train trip in the summer of 1990, thought of a story about a boy who had magic (魔法) but didn?t know it. In 1992 Rowling began to teach English. She lived with her baby daughter, Jessica, and spent much time finishing the first Harry Potter book for young readers. It appeared in June 1997. To her surprise, the book was greatly successful. The film came out in November 2001. Now Harry Potter series (系列) is popular with people of all ages and about 60 million books were sold in 200 countries.
Why has the series been so successful? There are a few things. Many other magical stories happen in faraway lands or in past or future times. But Harry lives in modern England. He?s also a very common boy: polite, friendly and clever. So when other children read about Harry, they can think they are like him.
J. K. Rowling is very happy with the success, and she is now busy finishing the whole series of seven books. She?s writing full time and she?s really enjoying her life. She says she will go on living a life with her daughter and writing children?s books.

“Let?s go to the animal pets there need homes. Since tomorrow is Saturday, we can both go,” she said.

The others have been destroyed by modern man and his technology. We are changing the earth, the air and the water, and everything that grows and lives here. We can?t live without these things. If it continues like this, we shall destroy ourselves.
What will happen in the future? Perhaps it is more important to ask “What must we do now?” The people who will be living in the world of tomorrow are the young of today. A lot of them know that conservation is necessary. Many are helping to save our world. They plant trees, build bridges across rivers in forests, and so on. In a small town in the United States a large group of girls cleaned the banks of 11 kilometres of their river. Young people may hear about conservation through a record called NO ONE?S GOING TO CHANGE OUR WORLD. It was made by the Beatles and other singers. The money from it will help to conserve wild animals.

It was a freezing cold, winter night. Coming near the town to look for food, a very hungry wolf met a house dog. The wolf saw that the dog was fat and comfortable, so he asked, “Cousin dog, do you know where I can find some food?”
“Oh, there is always food in my house,” said the dog. “My master gives me plenty of meat.”
“Master?” said the wolf, “What?s that?”
“The man I work for,” said the dog. “My job is easy. I bark and keep thieves away from the house. It?s a good
life. Why don?t you try it?”
“Yes,” said the wolf, “Your life sounds much better than living in the cold woods. I?d like a roof over my head. I?ll come with you and ask your master for work.”
As they ran toward the town together, the wolf saw a mark on the dog?s neck.
“What?s that?” he asked.
“What?s what?” said the dog.
“The mark on your neck.”
“Oh, that,” said the dog, “It?s nothing. My collar（颈圈）is a little tight－the collar that my chain is tied to.” “Chain?” asked the wolf. “You mean that you are not free? You can?t go where you want to?”
“Well, they chain me during the day, because the neighbors are afraid of me,” said the dog. “But at night I can go free. Anyway, I sleep during the day, so that I can watch better at night. It?s really not bad. And think of all the food I get!... Where are you going?”
“Thank you, but no, thanks,” said the wolf. “If I had a chain around my neck, I would die. I?d rather be hungry and free than a slave with a full stomach.”

When Charles was sixteen years old, Dr. Robert Darwin, his father, sat him down and had a talk with him. The doctor told Charles: “to Edinburgh and study to become a doctor. You can then follow in the footsteps of your father and your grandfather.” Dr. Erasmus Darwin, Charles?s grandfather, had been a very famous physician and naturalist.

Jet lag, caused by traveling between time zones, is becoming a common problem for travelers: for 49 percent it is only something annoying and for 45 percent it is a real problem. It is caused by disruption (破坏，使混乱) to the internal biological clock, and may lead to digestive(消化的) problems, tiredness, and sleep disruption.
In general, our biological clock is slightly troubled if we just move into the next time zone, but jet lag becomes a problem once we have passed through three or four time zones. The body takes about one day to get over each hour of time difference. But how serious jet lag is also depends on our direction of travel. If we go north or south, we won?t notice any difference, because there is usually no time zone change. However, if we travel west wewill be in advance of ourselves as for our internal clock and there may be problems. A west-to-east journey, on the other hand, makes us later than the local time. It often takes even greater effort in adjustment (调整)since we are not quick enough to catch up with the new time schedule. Therefore, a trip from New York to Los Angeles often causes fewer problems than a Los Angeles- New York trip.
1. A traveler troubled by jet lag has problems in _______________.
A. adjusting his biological clock B. knowing the direction of a jet
C. knowing how long he flies
D. knowing about the weather of a new place
2. If one travels across three time zones, he needs about _______ hours to get over his jet lag problem.
A. 24 B. 36 C. 48 D. 72
3. A person may have the most serious problem of jet lag when he takes a _________ journey.
A. east-to west B. west-to east C. north-to-south D. south-to-north
4. The main purpose (目的)of the passage is to ____________.
A. tell us why travelers can have jet lag problems.
B. teach us how to solve jet lag problem
C. tell us the differences between time zones
D. show the ways to make jet lag problems less worse

There have been many great inventions, things that changed the way we live in. The first great invention was one that is still very important today－the wheel. This made it easier to carry heavy things and to travel long distances. For hundreds of years after that there were few inventions that had as much effect as the wheel. Then in the early 1800?s the world started to change. There was little unknown land left in the world. People didn?t have to explore（探索） much anymore. They began to work instead to make life better.
In the second half of the 19th century many great inventions were made. Among them were the camera, the electric light and the radio. These all became a big part of our life today.
The first part of the 20th century saw more great inventions－the helicopter in 1909, movies with sound in 1926, the computer in 1928, and jet planes in 1930. This was also a time when a new material was first made. Nylon came out in 1935. It changed the kind of clothes people wear.
The middle part of the 20th century brought new ways to help people get over diseases. They worked very well. They made people healthier and let them live longer lives. By the 1960?s most people could expect to live to be at least 60.
By this time most people had a very good life. Of course new inventions continued to be made. But man now had a desire （渴望，欲望） to explore again. The world was known to man but the stars were not. Man began looking for ways to go into space. Russia made the first step. Then the United States took a step. Since then other countries, including China and Japan, have made their steps into space.
In 1969 man took his biggest step away from the earth. Americans first walk on the moon. This is certainly just a beginning though. New inventions will someday allow us to do things we have never yet dreamed of.

Ellen Sims is an 18-year-old college student.She has an important history exam tomorrow morning.Ellen is going to study all night. She is not going to sleep at all.Many college students ,like Ellen,do this often.They think that they can study all night.And they think that in the morning, they will remember everything that they studied the night before,Ellen thinks that this is a good way to study,but many doctors disagree.They say that sleep is very important for memory and brain development.
Scientists at Harvard Medical School in the US studied sleep and memory.They studied 24 people.First,they asked the people to look at a picture and remember it.At night,they put the people in two groups of 12.Group One went to sleep.Group Two did not.A few days later,the scientists showed some pictures to both groups.They asked the people to find the picture they saw before.The people in Group One did well.But the people in Group Two did not do well.It wasn't easy for them to remember the picture.What happened? Scientists say that sleep helps our memory.After we learn something new,sleep helps us remember it.And when we don't sleep,we can forget new things.
Scientists say that many teenagers,like Ellen,sleep too little.They go to school and they work,too.They also spend time with their friends.They are always busy and they think that sleep doesn't matter.But scientists say the brains of teenagers are still developing,and sleep is a very important part of the development.When teens sleep less than six hours,they can't think clearly.That is not very helpful for a student who is taking an exam.
