Identify the paragraphfrom which the information is derived. You may choose a paragraph more than once.Each paragraph is marked with a letter.Answer the questions by marking thecorresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2.A.Are you at a loss for creative book report ideas for your students?If yes.then this article will help you make reading and reviewing books more creative for your class.In an age of PSPs，Xbox，anime and gaming arcades，reading has lost its foothold in the list of hobbies that children tend to cite. Most of the reading that kids do today,comes in the form of compulsory books that they need to read for school and maybe that is the reason they find reading to be an insurmountable and boring task.If you want to inculcate the love for languages and literary masterpieces in your students and want them to devour books everyone should read，then a good way of going about the same would be to get them to start working on creative book report ideas.While working on creative ideas for book reports，your students will have to understand the book in a way that allows them to come up with new ways to present to the class，the essence of the book. B.As a teachel while egging your students to activate their creative gray cells.you will have to help them out with basic ideas that they can work on.Depending on the age bracket that your students belong to，the creative book report ideas will vary.This is so，not just because of the varying attention spans that children of various age groups posses but also because of the amount of work that kids can put into the report.While a middle school student wiIl be comfortable handling a handy cam，a student from elementary school will be more fascinated if he is working with paints and puppets.So do you want to know how to write a book report creatively?In this article.we will list out for you，a couple of good creative book report ideas for elementary students and for middle school students. C.A book report sandwich is a good creative idea for book reports.As a teacher you can get drawings of a sandwich on sheets of Paper that are of the color of the ingredients of your sandwich，for example，a cream sheet of paper to resemble mayonnaise，red to represent tomato and likewise.Obviously,each ingredient should be cut in a way that when assembled together,it looks like a sandwich.Now,give each of your students one of these book sandwiches to create their book report. It can start with the name of the book and the author’s name on the top slice of the sandwich.The second ingredient can have the summary of the book on it.Each subsequent ingredient can have a description of the main characters，the setting of the book，the plot，and then his or her views about the book.Once they are done with their book reports，they can staple the book sandwich together and then，you can create a class bulletin board with all the book report sandwiches on display. D.One of the good techniques to retell a story,it is also one of the favorite creative book report ideas among students.The job that the student will have is to read the book and then pick a few objects at his/her home which will allow him/her to retell the story in a way that makes it interesting for his/ her audience.Every time he/she picks out an object from the bag to report the book he/she has read，there has to be a valid connection between the book and the object，which the student can first ask the audience to guess and then go ahead and explain it.This idea is spin—off on the normal show and tells and allows for an interactive book report session. E.This is one of the creative ideas for book reports in which.as the teacher, you will have to divideyour class into groups and give them one book each.The students can then read the book and get together and write a play and act it out for the class.To give a deeper insight into the book，one of the students can play the role of the author and as a group，the students can try and recreate the thought Drocess of the author.The student playing the role of the author can then interrupt the play at lmportant iunctllres and talk about the reasons for these twists in the play and how he/she came up with these plot lines. F.As a voung adult，your student’s fascination may go beyond the immediate concerns of the book. He/she may want to understand the circumstances in which the book was written，the times then，the events happening in the world and get the author’s perspective about the book.Encourage your students to mink on those lines.Divide the class into pairs and give each pair one book to read.Let them then do the roles of the author and a journalist.You can have an interview session in front of the class.enabling them to dissect the book and get a peek into the author’s world. 上一页 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 下一页 G.In a technology—obsessed world，it maybe a very tiny minority of your class that does not get excited with the Drospect of shooting a film.One of the best creative book report ideas for middle school， you will need to divide the class into groups and give them at least two months to adapt the book that thev have been assigned，into a film.The movie should have a well—adapted screenplay,and allother prerequisites，like a lighting engineer,sound engineer, costume designer,etc.At the end of the given time，the film can be screened in front of the class and then discussed. H.If you are on the lookout for good individual creative book report ideas，then this one could be for you.Assign every student a book and then ask them to start maintaining a diary,from the author’sDoint of vie w.Ask them to come up with imaginary incidents from the author’s life and use historical events to explain why the author wrote the book in a certain manner.Alternately, you can also ask your students to give a surrogate ending to the story. I)、These are just few of the options that you could use to inspire your students to come up with creative book report ideas.As kids we tend to be more imaginative and creative .Encourage your students to mink om of the box and appreciate them for their efforts.This will help you have a class that is not only lively and inquisitive by nature but also a class that will cultivate a love for words. 36.11eachers can create a class bulletin board to display all the book report sandwiches after their students finish their reports. 37.Adopting the method of knowing your author,teachers can encourage students to think beyond the immediate concerns of the book. 38.Asking me students to write from their own point of view is suitable for teachers who are on the lookout for good individual creative book report ideas. 39.Retelling a story is one of the favorite creative book report ideas among students and it tells and allows for an interactive book report session. 40.Nowadays，most of book children read are those they need to read for school. 41.Teachers tend to be more imaginative and creative as kids. 42.While working on creative ideas for book reports，students will have to understand the book. 43.The creative book report ideas vary according to ages because children in different age groups have different attention span. 44.If teachers ask their students to shoot a film about a book，they should give them no fewer than two months. 45.Teachers have to divide their class into groups and give them one book each is a good creative book report ideas. 上一页 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 下一页 Section C

You should decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on AnswerSheet 2 with a single line through the centre.
Questions 46 to 50 are based on the following passage.It‘s very interesting to note where the debate about diversity(多样化)is taking place.It is taking place primarily in political circles. Here at the College Fund，we have a lot of contact with top corporate(公司的) leaders;none of them is talking about getting rid of those instruments that produce diversity.In fact，they say that if their companies are to compete in the global village and in the global market place，diversity.In fact，they say that if their companies are to compete in the global village and in the global market place，diversity is an imperative.They also say that the need for talented，skilled Americans means we have to expand the pool of potential employees.And in looking at where birth rates are growing andat where the population is shifting， corporate America understands that expanding the pool means promotingpolicies that help provide skills to more minorities，more women and more immigrants.Corporate leaders know that if that does not occur in our society，they will not have the engineers，the scientists，the lawyers，or the business managers they will need. Likewise，I don‘t hear people in the academy saying.“Let’s go backward.Let‘s go back to the good old days，when we had a meritocracy(不拘一格选人才)” (which was never true-we never had a meritocracy，although we’ve come closer to it in the last 30 years.) I recently visited a great little college in New York where the campus has doubled its minority population in the last six years.I talked with an African American who has been a professor there for a long time，and she remembers that when she first joined the community，there were fewer than a handful of minorities on campus.Now，all of us feel the university is betterbecause corporate board rooms or on college campuses. Choose correct answers to the question： 46.The word“imperative”(Line5，Para.1) most probably refers to something _____ A.Superficial B.remarkable C.debatable D.essential 47.Which of the following groups of people still differ in their views on diversity?

D.Managers. 48.High corporate leaders seem to be in favor of promoting diversity so as to ______ A.lower the rate of unemployment B.win equal political rights for minorities C.be competitive in the world market D.satisfy the demands of a growing population 49.It can be inferred from the passage that _____ A.meritocracy can never be realized without diversity B.American political circles will not accept diversity C.it is unlikely that diversity will occur in the U.S. Media D.minorities can only enter the fields were no debate is heard about diversity 50.According to the passage diversity can be achieved in American society by ____ A.expanding the pool of potential employees B.promoting policies that provide skills to employees C.training more engineers， scientists lawyers and business managers D.providing education for all regardless of race or sex

Questions 51 to 55 are based on the following passage.Many private institutions of higher education around the country are in danger.Not all will be saved，andperhaps not all deserve to be saved. There are low-quality schools just as there are low-quality business.We have no obligation to save them simply because they exist. But many thriving institutions that deserve to continue are threatened.They are doing a fine job educationally，but they are caught in a financial squeeze，with no way to reduce rising costs or increase revenuessignificantly.Raising tuition doesn‘t bring in more revenue，for each time tuition goes up，the enrollment goes down，or the amount that must be given away in student aid goes up.Schools are bad businesses， whether public or private，not usually because of mismanagement but because of the nature of the enterprise.They lose money on every customer，and they can go bankrupt either from too few students or too many students.Even a very good college is a very bad business. It is such colleges，thriving but threatened，I worry about.Low enrollment is not their chief problem.Even with full enrollments，they may go under.Efforts to save them，and preferably to keep them private，are a national necessity.There is no basis for arguing that private schools are inherently (固有地)better than public schools.Examples to the contrary abound.Anyone can name state universities and colleges that rank as the finest in the nation and the world.It is now inevitable that public institutions will be dominant，and therefore diversity is a national necessity.Diversity in the way we support schools tends to give us a healthy diversity in the forms of education.In an imperfect society such as ours，uniformity of education throughout the nation could be dangerous.In an imperfect society，diversity is a positive good. Enthusiastic supporters of public higher education know the importance of sustaining private higher education. Choose correct answers to the question： 51.According to the author‘s opinion，schools are bad businesses because of _______. A.mismanagement B.too few students C.financial squeeze D.their characteristics 52.The author used the phrase “go under” in Para. 3 to mean “_______”。 A.get into difficulties B.have low enrollment C.have little money D.bring in more money 53.We can reasonably conclude from this passage that the author made an appeal to the public in order to support_____ A.public institution B.private schools C.uniformity of education D.diversity of education 54.Which of the following is NOT mentioned about private schools? A.High-quality private schools deserve to be saved. B.If the tuition of the private schools is raised， the enrollment goes down. C.There are many cases to show that public schools are better than private schools. D.Private schools are more profitable than public schools. 55.Which of the following ways could possibly save private schools? A.Raising tuition. B.Full enrollment. C.National awareness and support.

上一页 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 下一页 PartⅢ reading comprehension Section Passage One 答案解析： 46.[D] 词义理解题。本句说到公司要在地球村和全球市场上竞争，多样性是imperative，由前文“没有取消引起多样性的手段”和下文提到的公司对各种各样有技能的美国人的需求可知，多样性对于企业来说应该“必需的”故D正确。 47.[B] 事实细节题。第2段末句指出这种辩论主要存在于政治圈和媒体中，结合上句内容，可知其中的this debate指的就是关于多样性的辩论，故B正确。 48.[C] 事实细节题。由第1段第4句可知，公司高层领导人促进多样化的原因是想要在全球市场上更具竞争力，C与此相符。 49.[A] 推理判断题。第2段中提到有些人认为在没有多样性的过去照样能做到不拘—格选人才，但作者马上which was never true否定此观点，故A正确。第2段只提到多样性的辩论存在于政治圈和媒体，但并不代 表在这两个圈子里不能接受或从未出现多样性，故排除B、C;D说法过于绝对，且在文中找不到依据，也可排除。 50.[D] 推理判断埋。由第1段倒数第2句可知企业expand the pool就意味着向more minorities，more women 和 more immigrants提供技能培训，而expand the pool对应的就是题干中的说的多样性的形成，D中的race 和sex分别对文中minorities和women，故正确。A泛泛而谈，没有说到点子上，不如D具体、准确;B与多样性没有关系，C是利用文中的有关职业的词拼凑而成的干扰项。 PartⅢ reading comprehension Section Passage two 答案解析： 51.[D] 事实细节题。本题考查因果关系。第2段倒数第3句中的“not because of…… but because of……”指出了nature就是原因所在，characteristics是nature的近义词，故D正确。 52.[A] 词义理解题。通过go under所在句子中的Even with……可知，该句与上一句形成对比，这两句中的enrollment是相对应的，所以go under应该也与上文的problem相对应，由此可推断，go under就是have problem/ difficulty之义。本题最具干扰性的是C，但文中并无细节具体说明即使入学人数满额学校收人也很少的问题，因此C把problem定义得过细，不如A恰当。 53.[B] 推理判断题，也是主旨大意题。文章一开头就指出“许多私立髙等学校都处于危险之中”，引起读者的关注，结尾句明确倡议支持公立髙等教育的人们应该同样支持私立髙等教育，由此可见，B是本文的目的。本题最具干扰性的是D，D的说法在最后一段中多次提到，但是作者提出办学多样性是为了说明私立教育的重要性，故D只是本文主题(私立教育)的支持性细节，并非本文的中心话题。 54.[D] 事实细节题。可用排除法找出答案。A可从第1段推断得出;B可在第2段第3句中找到;C可从最后一段中间找到。 55.[C] 推理判断题。可用排除法找出答案，根据原文，第2段第3句可证明A不可行;最后一段第3句证明B不可行;第2段第2句也指出D行不通。本文的目的是为了提高公众对私立教育的关注，由此可见，只有C是拯救私立高校的可行性方法。 上一页 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 下一页 Part IV Translation 答案解析 Chinese Fans During the late Qing Dynasty, a large number of Chinese fans exquisitely carved and gorgeously painted were produced in Canton (now called Guang dong).These fans later were in good graces of western merchants.After they were shipped to Europe and America, they became fashionable accessories for noblewomen.The materials used to make Chinese fans were mostly exquisitely carved ivory,pearls and shells and lacquer.These Chinese fans showed many figures of Mandarins and their consorts.Mysterious oriental sentiment as they presented, each lady in upper-middle class family at that time owned a Chinese fan to show off her wealth and nobility. 上一页 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 下一页
