"Bill, you never miss!" Joe said admiringly. "Unless I'm in a real game," Bill complained. "Then I miss all the time." Joe knew that Bill was right. Bill performed much better when he was having fun with Joe in the school yard than he did when he was playing for the school team in fro nt of a large crowd. "Maybe you just need to practice more," Joe suggested. "But I practice all the time with you!" Bill objected. He shook his head. "I just can't play well when people are watching me." "You play well when I'm watching," Joe pointed out. "That's because I've known you since we were five years old," Bill said with a smile. "I'm just not comfortable playing when other people are around." Joe nodded and understood, but he also had an idea.
The next day Joe and Bill met in the school yard again to practice. After a few minutes, Joe excused himself. "Practice without me," Joe said to his friend. "I'll be back in a minute."
Joe hurried through the school building, gathering together whomever he could find—two students, a math teacher, two secretaries, and a janitor. When Joe explained why he needed them, everyone was happy to help. Joe reminded the group to stay quiet as they all went toward the school's basketball court. As Joe had hoped, Bill was still practicing basketball. He made five baskets in a row without noticing the silent people standing behind him.
"Hey, Bill!" Joe called out finally. Bill turned. A look of surprise came over his face. "I just wanted to show you that you could play well with people watching you," Joe said. "Now you'll have nothing to worry about for the next game!"

When another old cave is discovered in the south of France, it is not usually news. Rather, it is an ordinary event. Such discoveries are so frequent these days that hardly anybody pays heed to them. However, when the Lascaux cave complex was discovered in 1940, the world was amazed. Painted directly on its walls were hundreds of scenes showing how people lived thousands of years ago. The scenes show people hunting animals, such as bison or wild cats. Other images depict birds and, most noticeably, horses, which appear in more than 300 wall images, by far outnumbering all other animals.
Early artists drawing these animals achieved a monumental and difficult task. They did not limit themselves to the easily accessible walls but carried their painting materials to spaces that required climbing steep walls or going on hands and knees into narrow passages in the Lascaux complex.
Unfortunately, the paintings have been exposed to the destructive action of water and temperature changes, which easily wear the images away. Because the Lascaux caves have many entrances, air movement has also damaged the images inside.
Although they are not out in the open air, where natural light would have destroyed them long ago, many of the images have deteriorated and are hardly recognizable. To prevent further damage, the site was closed to tourists in 1963, 23 years after it was discovered.
25. Which title best summarizes the main idea of the passage?
A. Wild Animals in Art
B. Hidden Prehistoric Paintings
C. Exploring Caves Respectfully
D. Determining the Age of French Caves
26. What does the underlined phrase “pays heed to” in paragraph 2 probably means?
A. discovers B. watches C. notices D. buys
27. Why was painting inside the Lascaux complex a difficult task?
A. It was completely dark inside.
B. The caves were full of wild animals.
C. Painting materials were hard to find.
D. Many painting spaces were difficult to reach.
28. According to the passage, all of the following have caused damage to the paintings EXCEPT _______.
A. temperature changes B. air movement C. water D. light

England's highest main-line railway station is in serious trouble, deserted and unmanned since it was officially closed in 1970, Dent, located high in the hills of Yorkshire, wakes up on six summer weekends each year, when a special train unloads walkers, sightseers and people who simply want to catch a train from the highest station to its platforms.
But even this limited being may soon be brought to an end. Dent station located on the Settel to Carlisle railway line, is said to be surrounded by the most beautiful scenery in the country. But no amount of scenic beauty can save the line because of the British Rail's money problems.
It is now an open secret that British Rail sees no future for this railway line. Most of its trains disappeared some time ago. Bridges, built a century ago, are falling down. It is not alone. Half a dozen railway routes in the North of England are facing a similar threat. The problem is an old system and an almost total lack of cash to repair it. Bridges and tunnels are showing their ages, the wooden supports for the tracks are rotting(腐烂) and engines and coaches(车厢) are getting old.
On main lines between large cities, the problem is not too bad. There lines still make a profit and cash can be found to keep them in good condition. But on the country branch line, the situation is different. As track wears out, it is not replaced. Instead speed limits are introduced, making the journey longer than necessary and discouraging travelers.
If a bridge is dangerous, there is often only one thing for British Rail to do: go out and find money from another places. This is exactly what it did a few months ago when a bridge at Bridling station was threatening to fall down. Repairs were calculated at 200,000 pounds just for one b ridge, so British Rail was pleased, and rather surprised when two local councils(理事会) offered half that amount of money.
32. Of all the railway routes in Britain, the one which passes through Dent
A. is the most historic.
B. passes through the most attractive countryside.
C. is the most expensive route for tourists.
D. carries the greatest number of tourists.
33. What is the most urgent( 迫切的)problem for many country railway lines ?
A. Rebuilding bridges.
B. Repairing engines.
C. Renewing coaches.
D. Replacing stations.
34. Who would appear to be the people most affected by the difficulties facing the British Rail?
A. The people who do much business.
B. The groups who are organized .
C. Large city people and local people.
D. The people who want to have holidays for touring.
35. How should British Rail improve the financial situation of the country railway lines?
A. By bringing in speed limits
B. By decreasing preserving costs.
C. By increasing train fares
D. By asking local councils for help
Why Don’t Students Like School?
Most of the teachers I know entered the job because they loved school as children. ___36______ However, they are understandably discouraged when they find that some of their students don’t like school much, and that they, the teachers, have great difficulty inspiring them. Why is it difficult to make school enjoyable for students?
As a matter of fact , the brain is not designed for thinking. It’s designed to ask you not to have to think, because the brain is actually not very good at thinking. Thinking is slow and unreliable. ____37_____People like to solve problems, but they do not like to work on problems that cannot be solved. If schoolwork is always just a bit too difficult for a student, it should be no surprise that he doesn’t like school much. __38____
What is the nature of being human? ____39____ Many people would answer that it is our ability to reason that makes us different—birds can fly, fish can swim, and humans can think . (By thinking I mean solving problems, reasoning, reading something complex, or doing any mental work that requires some effort.) Shakespeare thought highly of our cognitive(认知) ability in Hamlet: “What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason!” Some three hundred years later, however, Henry Ford came up with a quite different opinion, “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is the probable reason why so few people are interested in it.” They both had a point of view. Humans are good at certain types of reasoning, especially compared to other animals, but we hardly often exercise those abilities. ___40_____Thinking is not only painful, as Ford noted, it’s also slow and unreliable.
A.A cognitive scientist would add another point of view, “Humans don’t think very often because our brains are designed not for thought but for escaping from thought.”
B. What sets us apart from other species?
C. Of course you could make each decision with care and thought.
D. However, people enjoy thinking if it is successful.
E. Therefore, teachers should reconsider how they encourage their students to think, in order to make thinking enjoyable enough for students to go after.
F. If we are all so bad at thinking, how does anyone get through the day?
G. They want to help their students feel the same excitement and passion for learning that they felt.

As I came to my eighteenth birthday, the lessons became 56 lessons and then every other month, until they slowly drifted away.My brothers and I were older, and we had school activities, sports activities and job responsibilities that became very 57 to manage.
It's been years now since we had those classes with Dad.We are 58 with careers (事业) and wives of our own.Very often, 59 , one of us has a situation where we need help from Dad.At this time, we 60 take out our notebooks; we needn't call home.

It matters a lot if you don’t have your breakfast. In the United States, recently a test 61 (perform) by the scientists. People 62 different ages from 15 to 80 were included in the test.

W: Isn’t Mary a beautiful bride?
M: Yes, she is,indeed.John looks very happy, too.
M: What did you do yesterday evening?

M: Hello, Mary.It’s Mike.⑥We received a letter last week about the geography field trip.I just want to remind you that it needs to be signed by your parents, and it should be handed in tomorrow.
W: Are we leaving on Sunday or Monday for the trip?
M: All the information is given in the letter.⑦Final details will be posted on the notice board on Friday morning, the da y after tomorrow.

W: Yes.How long is the shop open every day?
M: ⑧Usually it opens at 9:00 in the morning and closes at 6:00 in the afternoon.But at weekends it closes half an hour later.

W: How about this one?

W: All right.Let me show you something darker then.How about this one?
M: The material is quite nice, but the jacket seems a little tight in the collar.The color seems a little light.Don’t you have anything in darker grey?

M: What? Apartment?
W: Don’t you think we should get a larger apartment?
M: What do you mean? This apartment is fine.It’s big enough for us.
W: It’s obvious that this apartment is too small.We don’t even have a dining room.We’ve lived here since we were married.It’s time we moved.
M: I’d rather stay here.I love this old place.Besides, we don’t need all that extra room.

W: Don’t worry.We can afford a more expensive apartment.You got a raise last month and my salary certainly helps.
M: Well, yes, good point.I guess we should look at a few apartments.
W: We all like our parents, because they give us too much love and care.Now I’d like to talk about my dear dad.My dad is a “Mr.Mom”.He was 50 years old when I was born.I didn’t know why he was at home instead of mom, but I considered myself very lucky because I was the only one of my friends who had dad around.
Dad did so many things for me during my elementary school years.He convinced the school bus driver to pick me up at our house instead of the usual bus stop two blocks away.He always had my lunch ready for me when I came home.
As I got a little older and tried to gain my independence, I wanted to move away from those “childish” signs of his love, but he wouldn’t give up.In high school I was no longer able to go home for lunch, so I began taking my own.Dad would get up a little earlier and prepare it for me.
However, when I left home for college, I missed my dad every day after scho ol.At that time I called him a lot.It didn’t matter what he said; I just wanted to hear his voice.2016河北贫困村搬迁政策 学校领导对教师学年度考核评语 北京市大兴区2015-2016学年度第一学期期末化学试题下列变化中，属于化学变化的是 厦门市2015-2016学年度第一学期高一质量检测生物试题 咸阳市20142015学年度高一学期期末政治 周口市2015-2016学年度期末考试答案 唐山市2015-2016学年度高二年级 天津四中2015-2016学年度高二数学期末试题 太原五中2015-2016学年度第一学期阶段性检测高一化学 太原市20142015学年高一年级第二学段测评化学答案 山东省部分重点中学2015-2016学年度 广东省2015-2016学年度第一学期高三文数调研测试 年度自我鉴定范文 2015_2016学年度教学质量评估时间（12） 2013-2014学年度下期成都市调研考试数学试题 教师年度考核登记表 教育系统小学年度考核 珠海市2015-2016学年度第一学期 湛江市2015-2016学年度调研测试理综 2016至2017年度广西区高级中学 2013-2014学年度下学期期末考试高二年级化学科试卷 20162017学年度第一学期期末学业水平调研测试高一化学 信阳市2015-2016学年度下学期期末教学质量监测高二语文 北京市朝阳区2015-2016学年度第二学期高一年级期末统一考试物理试卷 合肥市2015-2016学年度高二第二学期期末调研考试数学答案 体育局四好班子规划 812天津港危化 天津市五区县2015至2016 2014天津五校联考19 2016天津市十二区县政治 2016,天津,河西,一模 2016年天津市十二区县 2016年天津市河西区一模 2016天津市河西区化学一模答案 2016天津市十二区县化学 2016年天津市南开区一模答案 我国四个省市区经济数据表 十二区县2016 天津市河西区2016年高三一模考试百度文库 2017天津买房新政策 2016年天津中学排名 2014长沙县吃低保标准 2016年海南工资多少需要上税 2016年低保4月1日天津 2016年天津招兵 2016天津市买房首付比例 2016年天津市丧假 3位曾担任福建省书记的领导是谁 天津市原代课教师 2016年中央在甘肃巡视时间
