第二部分 阅读理解 (共两节, 满分40分)
It was the beginning of the school year a few years ago and I had a little boy in my class who came from a non-English speaking home. He was very quiet and shy. I wasn’t sure how much he understood during the school day and I was especially concerned that he just stood by himself at break time and did not play. If I tried to talk to him, he would turn away and tightly shut his eyes to hide from me.
After a day or two of this, I decided to seek the help from one of my outgoing and friendly little girls. I called her over and she ran to me, ready to help.
I immediately began a long speech about what I needed from her. I asked her if she would try to get him to play, and I started talking quickly about all these suggestions on how she could start communication with him. I explained she could do that, she could try this idea, she could try that idea. She touched my arm to stop my talking and looked up at me in that wise and special way that only a six-year-old can, and said, “Don’t worry, I speak kid”. And she ran off.
I stood there all alone, silently watching her. It took less than a minute for the two new friends to run off, hand in hand, happily joining a game of tag(捉人游戏) taking place all over the gym.
I often think of that small moment, about what I learned and how important it is for all teachers to speak kid – big kid, little kid and middle kid. I know my focus must be on teaching students how to think, how to approach problems, and how to figure out solutions and teaching them never to let the opportunity away. We must be ready to learn from our students because those “teachable moments” during the school days are for us, the teachers, as well as our kids.

The direct coal liquefaction line is located in Ejin Horo Banner(伊金霍洛旗), Ordos city, North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region. It produces 3,000 tons of oil products by using nearly 10,000 tons of coal per day, said Shenhua Coal Liquefaction and Chemical Co.,Ltd.

Statistically, air travel is by far the safest way to travel, and you can make flying even safer, just by following these simple rules. Though your chances of being in an air accident are practically zero, many of these tips concern what you should and shouldn’t do to make your journey safer when you are in the air.
Fly on non-stop routes
Most accidents occur during the take-off, climb, descent and landing periods of a flight, so flying non-stop can reduce these complex steps.
Choose larger aircrafts
Although small aircrafts have very good safety records, those with more than 30 passenger seats are designed to follow much stricter regulations and are tested more regularly to make sure they still work well. Also, in the unlikely event of a serious accident, larger aircrafts provide a better opportunity for passenger survival.
Pay attention to the pre-flight safety briefing
The information may seem to be heard repeatedly, but it’s worth listening to the flight attendants. And even if you’ve flown before, it doesn’t mean you know everything about the aircraft you’re on, such as the location of the closest emergency exit.
Store things safely
Never put very heavy things in the overhead storage bins. They may fall out when someone opens the bin and cause injury. Also, the bin may not be able to hold heavier objects during turbulence(气流).
Keep your seat belt fastened while you are seated
Cabin crew always tell you this, but it’s important. You would be seriously injured if the plane hits unexpected turbulence. Always fasten your seat belt if you are told to. The general rule of flying is this: If you are told to do something, do it first and ask questions later.
Let the flight attendant pour your hot drinks
Flight attendants are trained to handle hot drinks like coffee or tea in a crowded passage on a moving aircraft, so allow them to pour the drink and hand it to you. Never ask to take a coffee pot from one of them.
28. Why does the writer write these air safety tips? To tell the passengers
A. how to improve safety while flying.
B. what to do in the unlikely event of a serious accident.
C. how they can avoid turbulence.
D. how to avoid injury.
29. Which of the following is the best one to replace the underlined word “those” in the second tip?
A. smaller aircrafts B. passengers
C. larger aircrafts D. safety records
30. Which of the following is NOT true?
A. Larger planes have more safety checks and are safer in an accident.
B. Seat belts should be worn only during the take-off, climb, descent and landing periods of a flight.
C. Non-stop flights can reduce the complex steps of takeoff, climb, descent and landing.
D. It is dangerous for a passenger to pour hot drinks on a moving plane.
31. What is the best title of the passage? .
A. How to Avoid Turbulence B. How to Fly a Plane
C. Larger Plane is Better D. Flight Safety Tips
The quality of drinking water in Shanghai will meet European Union standard soon and, a decade later, citizens in Shanghai will drink the best water in the world.
These were the goals set out by the Shanghai Water Authority. With the city’s population expected to increase only slightly and the economy to boom by 2020, Chen Yin, an official with the water authority, said Shanghai’s water use will not increase from its present amount.
Zhang Yue, director of the Urban Construction Division under the Ministry of Construction, said, “Shanghai is the first city in the country to publicize these goals. They will not be easy to achieve.”
He said water saving will help keep the sustainable(可持续的) development of China’s economy.
Saving one cubic meter of water means saving the city’s infrastructure(基础设施)costs by 10,000 Yuan. Last year, Shanghai saved 300 million cubic meters of water either from readjustment of industrial structure or the use of new technology.
“The aim is to arouse public awareness of the seriousness of water shortages,” Chen said. “The rich surface water and amount of rain of the city are so misleading that they result in improper use of water.”
Shanghai lacks drinkable water. The Huangpu River, which supplies 80 percent of the city’s drinkable water, is drying up.
The city, therefore, has been exploring new sources from the Yangtze River and growing forests along it to hold quality water.
Besides, the authority is popularizing technology among the public to efficiently cut the amount of water used.
At present, the city has 600,000 family toilets, each using 13 liters of water per flush. These are to be renovated(整修)to use only 9 liters of water per flush.
The authority is renovating the first 200 toilets for households – at a cost of 40 Yuan each.
In three years, all the toilets will be renovated, which saves the city nearly 15 million Yuan every year in water use.
Another task is the treatment of the waste water to improve the water environment.
At present the city can only treat 44 percent of its daily 5.04 million tons of waste water. To meet the total demand, 27 more treatment factories are to be set up with an estimated investment of 18 billion Yuan.
32. Some people in Shanghai use water improperly because .
A. the rich surface water and large amount of rain mislead them
B. their family toilets can save plenty of water
C. the waste water has already been treated
D. new technology provide people with water as much as possible
33. The authority begins to renovate the toilets for households to .
A. make people live more conveniently
B. meet people’s need of water
C. make people’s living standards better
D. reduce employment pressure
34. Which of the following measures are all mentioned in the passage to save water?
a. Introducing or using some new technology.
b. Improving drinking water quality.
c. Changing some industrial structure.
d. Renovating some family toilets.
e. Building more waste water treatment factories.
f. Speeding the economic development of Shanghai.
A. a, b, c, d B. b, c, e, f C. b, c, d, e D. a, c, d, e
35. We can infer from the passage that .
A. Shanghai will need a much larger amount of water in the future
B. people in Shanghai can drink the best water in the world today
C. not all the people in Shanghai today know water shortage
D. all the family toilets will be renovated to save water in 3 years
