If we were asked exactly what we were doing a year ago，we should probably have to say that we could not remember.But if we had kept a book and written in it an account of _31_ each day，we should be able to give an answer _32_ the question.
It is the same in the history._33_ have been forgotten because we do not have any written account of them.Sometimes men _34_ a record of the important happenings in _35_ country，_36_ often it was destroyed by fire or in a war.Sometimes there was never any written record at all because the people _37_ did not know how to write.For example，we know _38_ the people who lived in China 4，000 years ago，because they could write and _39_ written records for these who live _40_ them.But we know _41_ nothing about the people who lived even 200 years ago in Central Africa，because they _42_.
Sometimes，of course，even if the people cannot write，they may know something of the past.They have learned about it from _43_ people，and often songs and dances and stories have been made about the most important happenings，and these have been sung and acted and told _44_ many generations(後代)。Most people are proud to tell _45_ their fathers did in the past.This we may call“remembered history”。_46_ has now been written down.It is not so exact _47_ so valuable to us _48_ written history is，because words are much more easily _49_ when used again and again in speech than copied in writing.But _50_ no written records，such spoken stories are often very helpful.

First there was learning.This has always been an important part of human life.By imitating their parents，children learned to hunt，to make tools，and to take care of themselves and others.
Next came education.This was possible only after people developed language.Then adults could explain how to do things.They could talk about traditions，beliefs，and ceremonies of the group.Still，education was oral.Children could learn only what their teachers could remember.
Finally，schools were created.They came into being because writing was invented.The first system for writing appeared about 3，500 B.C.in Sumeria，a land that is now Iraq.The Sumerians also invented a system for calculating with numbers.About 500 years later，the Egyptians discovered writing and calculation，too.And shortly after that，both the Sumerians and the Egyptians started schools.Being able to read and write they allowed people to learn anything that could be recorded.But the early systems were complicated.Children couldn‘t learn them just by watching.That’s why schools became a necessity.
Those first students learned reading，writing，and calculation.Having these skills gave people great power over those who did not have them.Some 5，000 years later，this is still true.

Once a landlord wanted to plant garlic in his fields.He found a group of boys and asked them to do the work for him.At lunch time he did not invite the boys to have lunch with his family.The boys had to sit by the door and have lunch on the ground.The landlord was afraid that other people would see the bad food for the boys.So with a smile on his face he said to them：“Boys，go and eat in the house.This is for your food.If you eat here by the door，the dogs will bite you.”The boys were surprised.But they said nothing and went to eat in the house.The landlord was quite pleased.

The International Olympic Committee(IOC)said on February 9 it would award its highest honour to Arthur Ashe，the tennis star and human rights fighter who died on February 6 of AIDS.He was 49.
The award，called the Olympic Order，is awarded to sportsmen and others for service to the Olympics and its principled.
Ashe never participated in the Olympics，but IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch said：“I think he was really a thorough Olympian.”
Ashe is the first black man to win Wimbledon and the only black to win the Australian US open titles.
Last April 8，he announced he had AIDS，which he got from a blood transfusion during a heart operation in 1983.
Ashe often worked for racial equality in and out of sports.He said the happiest moment of his life was not winning Wimbledon，but when Nelson Mandela—South Africa‘s antiapartheid(反種族隔離的)leader—was freed from jail in 1990.
A quote from Ashe：“I have good days and bad days.My ratio of good days to bad days is about six to one.”
()9.The underlined word“award”in the first paragraph means“________”。
A.send a telegraph B.give a prize
C.congratulate somebody D.be in memory of somebody
()10.Arthur Ashe ________.

()12.Which is correct?

For some time past，it has been widely accepted that babies—and other creatures—learn to do things because certain acts lead to“rewards”，there is no reason to doubt that this is true.But it used also to be widely believed that effective rewards，at least in the early time，had to be directly connected to such basic physiological“drives”as thirst or hunger.In other words，a baby would learn if he needed food or drink or some sort of physical comfort，not otherwise.
It is now clear that this is not so.Babies will learn to behave in ways that produce results in the world with no reward except success in sight.
Papousek began his studies by using milk in the normal way to“reward”the babies and so teach them to carry out some movements，such as turning the head to one side or the other.Then he noticed that a baby who had had enough to drink would refuse the milk but would still go on making，the learned response with clear signs of pleasure.So he began to study the children‘s responses in situations where no milk was provided.He quickly found that children as young as four months would learn to turn their heads to right or left if the movement“turned on”some lights—and indeed that they were able to learn some more turns to bring about this result，for example，two left or two right，or even to make as many as three turns to one side.
Papousek‘s light experiment was placed directly in front of the babies and he made the interesting observation that sometimes they would not turn back to watch the light closely although they would“smile and speak”when the light was on.Papousek concluded that it was not the sight of the lights which pleased them.It was the success they were achieving in solving the problem，in mastering the skill，and then there is a basic human nature to make sense of the world and bring it under control.
()13.According to the writer，babies learn to do things which _______.
A.will satisfy their surprise B.will meet their physical needs
C.are directly connected to pleasure D.will bring them a feeling of success
()14.Papousek noticed in his studies that a baby _________.
A.would make learned responses when it saw the milk
B.would continue the simple movements without being given milk
C.would turn its head to right or left when it had enough to drink
D.would carry out learned movements when it had enough to drink
()15.The babies would“smile and speak”at the lights because ________.
A.they succeeded in“turning on”the lights
B.the sight of lights was interesting
C.they need not turn back to watch the lights
D.the lights were directly connected to some basic“drives”

Not long ago,there lived in Auckland a working family who dreamed about a house of their own.Anyone then could read in the newspapers about the building companies who offered to put people into a new house 1 only a$1,000 deposit.Of course,the remainder had to be paid off with interest over a period of twenty years or so.
The worker and his wife hopefully went to one of these companies 2 this wonderful offer.And the man in the office said.“Yes,sure.You bring along$1,000 and we can 3 you with a new house.”
So the worker and his wife had to work hard and in twelve months’time they returned to the building man with$1,000.But the man in the office said,“Look,I’m sorry,4 we’ll need$1,500 now.Costs have gone up since we saw you last,you know.”
The couple thought it over and decided it would not take very long to save the extra$500 if they worked hard.
In six moths they worked 5 overtime and saved the$500 in spite of the high rent they had to pay for their flat.Back to the building man they 6 with their$1,500.But to their surprise he 57 the deposit was now$3,000.
Now somewhat wiser,the worker said,“And the next time,I dare say we’ll find the deposit rising once more.How have we 58 save the extra$1,500?”
“Well”,said the man,“I think we can stabilize the situation for about twelve months.By the time you come with$3,000,we will have had the house 9 for you.
The couple left,sad at heart as they saw their dream house 10.By the time they had saved the extra$1.500,no doubt the deposit would have become still higher,maybe$5,000,then$10,000 and then…!

For some minutes,all was quiet in the street.Then from across the street someone came walking.
It looked like a man of middle height,dressed in a big raincoat,a soft hat and rubber-soled boots or shoes,and making little sound while walking.No one was in sight.It was a street with two rows of about fifty small houses and there were three lamps on either side.The lamp nearest to the child’s house could be seen clearly,but the others were almost hidden by the smoky air.A car passed the end of the street and its lights showed faintly,but clearly enough to show the smooth skin of a woman’s face.The car disappeared as the woman,wrapped up in her coat,reached the doorway of the child’s house.
She put a key in the lock quickly,pushed the door open and stepped inside,then closed the door without looking round.She began to breathe hard.
She leaned against the door for a moment,then straightened up as if with an effort,and walked towards the door of the front room,the passage leading to the kitchen,and the narrow staircase.She hesitated outside the door,then went up the stairs quickly but with hardly a sound.There was enough light from the narrow hall to show the four doors leading off a small landing(楼梯平台).She pushed each door open in turn and shone a torch inside,and the light fell upon beds,walls,furniture,a bathroom hand-basin,a mirror which flashed brightness back;but this was not what the woman was looking for.She turned away and went downstairs,and hesitated again at the foot of the stairs,then turned towards the kitchen.Clearly there was nothing there,or in the small washroom that she wanted.Two rooms remained;the front room and a smaller one next to it.She opened the front room door.After a moment,she saw the child’s bed and the child.

We find that bright children are rarely held back by mixed-ability teaching.On the contrary,both their knowledge and experience are enriched.We feel that there are many disadvantages in streaming(把……按能力分班)pupils.It does not take into account the fact that children develop at different rates.It can have a bad effect on both the bright and the not-so-bright child.After all,it can be quite discouraging to be at the bottom of the top grade!
Besides,it is rather unreal to grade people just according to their intellectual ability.This is only one aspect of their total personality.We are concerned to develop the abilities of all our pupils to the full,not just their academic ability.We also value personal qualities and social skills,and we find that mixed-ability teaching contributes to all these aspects of learning.
In our classrooms,we work in various ways.The pupils often work in groups:this gives them the opportunity to learn to co-operate,to share,and to develop leadership skills.They also learn how to cope with personal problems as well as learning how to think,to make decisions,to analyse and evaluate,and to communicate effectively.The pupils learn from each other as well as from the teacher.
Sometimes the pupils work in pairs;sometimes they work on individual tasks and assignments,and they can do this at their own speed.They also have some formal class teaching when this is appropriate.We encourage our pupils to use the library,and we teach them the skills they need in order to do this efficiently.An advanced pupil can do advanced work:it does not matter what age the child is.We expect our pupils to do their best,not their least,and we give them every encouragement to attain this goal.
