第三部分 阅读理解（共 10 小题，每小题 1.5 分，满分 15 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项中选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A （CNN）—China’s first lunar rover(月球车) got separated successfully from the unmanned spacecraft Chang'e-3 that landed on the moon Saturday. Jade Rabbit （called Yutu in Chinese） is a six-wheeled lunar rover equipped with at least four cameras and two mechanical legs that can dig up soil samples to a depth of 30 meters. The solar-powered rover will wander around the moon’s surface, studying the structure of the lunar crust as well as soil and rocks, for at least three months. The robot’s name was decided by a public online poll（投票） and comes from a Chinese tale about the pet white rabbit of a goddess, Chang’e, who is said to live on the moon. Weighing 140 kilograms, the slow-moving rover carries an optical telescope for
astronomical observations and a powerful camera that will monitor how solar activity affects the various layers （层） — troposphere, stratosphere and ionosphere — that make up the Earth’s atmosphere, China’s information technology ministry said in a statement. The Jade Rabbit is also equipped with radioisotope （放射性同位素） heater units, allowing it to work during the cold lunar nights when temperatures plunge as low as -180°C (-292°F). The moon exploration makes China one of only three nations — after the United States and the former Soviet Union — to “soft-land”on the moon’s surface, and the first to do so in more than thirty years. 46. According to the passage, why does the Moon rover get the name Yutu? A. Its appearance is more similar to a rabbit. B. It’s a pet rabbit of a Chinese goddess, Chang’e. C. Internet users got it from an ancient Chinese story. D. It is equipped with a special material called Yu. 47. The moon rover can do the following EXCEPT___________. A. Taking photos of the moon from different angles B. Moving freely without any outer energy C. Monitoring how the various layers of atmosphere changes D. Studying the soil and rocks at the depth of 30 meters on the moon 48. The underlined word “plunge” means ______________. A. rise by B. fall by C. reduce to D. increase to 49. What’s the best title of the passage? A. Chinese moon rover launched successfully B. Unmanned spacecraft Chang'e-3 landing on the moon C. China becoming a powerful nation in space exploration. D. Chinese moon rover coming from a Chinese tale
You know about the season's blockbusters(大片), but if you want something different and exceptional, take a closer look at these small-press gems.— By Dawn Raffel
Stop Here by Beverly Gologosky
Centered around the fictional Murray’s Diner on Long Island, Gologorsky’s beautiful novel looks at working class families affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sample: “When Bobby was a baby and threw his toys on the floor she’d retrieve them—again and again—to teach him that what leaves comes back. Except she doesn’t believe it herself.”At heart, says the author, “It’s about the emotional rewards of struggle.” Published by Seven Stories Press.
An Honest Ghost by Rick Whitaker
This novel is
before—Whitaker composed it entirely from sentences taken from other books （500 in all, under fair use constraints ） to create a haunting, semi-autobiographical account of a gay man and the nine-year-old boy who is to become his adopted son. The
Supplement selected it as one of the year’s
best. Sample: “I am unpacking my library. I have been able to start work again on my novel. It is growing very slowly. There are limits to what can be said. Life lived by quotations.” Published by Jaded Ibis.
Make Me Do Things by Victoria Redel
marriage, divorce, and parenthood. Redel, who is also an award-winning poet, makes everyday topics shimmer. Sample: “He’d liked telling people that Danny claimed two homes were better than one because it meant two sets of Christmas presents. But now, all of Danny’s jolly laughing seemed like the hysterical crust over a havoc chasm. It made Dan miss Carine and all their predictable arguments?” Published by Four Way Books.
Seven Tales and Seven Stories by W.P. Osborn
Most of these stories in this debut book from Unboxed Books were published in well-established literary magazines, but the unnerving whole of their collection becomes more than the sum of the parts as Osborn successfully blends reality and fantasy. Sample: “During a lecture in the middle of the day in the fall semester of our senior year, an embarrassed new student was ushered into Mr. Krom's general science 1. We could see right away she was different?”
50. Those who are interested in The Times Literary Supplement will probably read _______. A. Stop Here C. Make Me Do Things A. W.P. Osborn B. An Honest Ghost D. Seven Tales and Seven Stories C. Rick Whitaker D. Beverly Gologosky
51. Who wrote a book, in which most stories had come out in famous magazines? B. Victoria Redel 52. What is the main purpose of the text? A. To introduce some writing styles to us. B. To make some great writers known to us. C. To advise us to get and read special books. D. To tell us general ideas of some famous novels. C The Tories would allow children to go to school for ten hours a day and on Saturday mornings to improve the performance of poorer pupils and help working parents. Schools spokesman Michael Gove declared plans yesterday to give disadvantaged children more classroom time to help them catch up. Longer school days could also be popular with parents who struggle to fit 3pm school finishing times around work, he said. Mr. Gove gave out the success of a U.S. plan where teenagers from poor backgrounds attend school from 7.30 am to 5pm. “I believe that having children in school for longer, particularly if they come from disadvantaged backgrounds can help them to achieve more in academy, ” he told the annual conference of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers in Manchester. He pointed out that it was up to schools alone to decide whether to open longer, or at weekends. But he was greeted with laughter from delegates （代表）when he said the plan would really work only with the active support of teachers. ATL general secretary, Dr Mary Bousted, said, “The last thing we need to be doing at the present time is increasing teachers’ working hours. Teachers already work the most unpaid overtime of any public sector profession. If we want Saturday
schools then we need more teachers doing the extra hours, not the same teachers working longer and becoming tired.” Meanwhile Mr Gove's idea is likely to alarm those concerned about the erosion （侵蚀 ）of family time. Margaret Morrissey, founder of the lobby group Parents Outloud, said, “What we should be doing is supporting these children within the school week.” 53. What’s the main idea of Paragraph 1? A. The Tories required all students to stay longer at school. B. Some parents didn’t support the arrangement. C. A new plan was used to help the disabled children. D. A plan was to meet some students’ and parents’ needs. 54. The successful example given by Mr. Gove suggests that having children in school for longer, can improve their___________. A. studies communication 55. According to the passage, which of the following is true? A. Each school in that area has to open longer or work at weekends. B. Parents who can’t pick up their children on time support the action. C. According to Gove, the teachers there agree to longer school days. D. The new plan will undoubtedly help poorer pupils catch up with others. B. health C. confidence D.

This article gives some suggestions on how to give an effective speech. So, you have to give a speech and you’re terrified. You get nervous, you forget what you want to say, you stumble over words, you talk too long and you bore your audience. Later you think, “Thank goodness, it’s over. I’m just no good at public speaking. I hope I never have to do that again.” Cheer up! It doesn’t have to be that bad. Here are some simple steps to take the pain out of speech making. Ask yourself the purpose of your speech. What is the occasion? Why are you speaking? Then, gather as many facts as you can on your subject. Spend plenty of time doing your research. Then spend plenty of time organizing your material so that your speech is clear and easy to follow. Use as many examples as possible and use pictures, charts and graphs if they help you make your points clearer. Never forget your audience. Don’t talk over their heads and don’t talk down to them. Treat your audience with respect. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Just remember: Be prepared. Know your subject, your audience and the occasion. Be brief. Say what you have to say and then stop. And be yourself. Let your personality
come through so that you make person-to-person contact with your audience. If you follow these simple steps, you’ll see that you don’t have to be afraid of public speaking. In fact, you may find the experience so enjoyable that you volunteer to make more speeches! You’re not convinced yet. Give it a try and see what happens. Suggestions on (56)______a speech ▲ You feel nervous and don’t (57) ______ the content you Problems will say. ▲ You talk too much, making the audience (58) ______. ▲ Usually, you hope the speech will end as soon as possible. ▲ Knowing (60) ______ you have to give the speech. ▲ Spending much time researching and having your material (61) ______to make your speech smooth.

Possible version Dear teacher and classmates, To my joy, the Spring Festival is approaching, but how shall we spend it in a new way? In my opinion, I will do what I can to share housework, such as doing some cleaning，and watch the Spring Festival Gala with my them, after enjoying a get-together dinner. What ’s more, it is also fun to visit my relatives while I am free. The time is so valuable that I shouldn’t waste most of the time playing computer games, chatting on the Internet or watching videos. For a student, study must come first. However, besides this, I would prefer to go outside to do some meaningful things as a volunteer for our society, for example, putting up some posters to publicize the traffic rules and call on people to observe/obey them. If you are in favor of my idea, don’t hesitate to join me please. That’s all, thank you. 英语书面表达评分标准（15 分） 1．本题满分为 15 分，依据内容和语言按五个档次给分。 2．评分时，先根据文章的内容和语言初步确定其所属档次，然后以该档次的要求来衡量， 确定或调整档次，最后给分，大错：要点缺失，语法句型错误每个 1 分；小错：词汇拼写， 标点符号等每个 0.5 分；书写不工整或卷面不整洁可降档处理。 具体要点:（1）做家务事、吃年夜饭、走亲戚、看春晚（共 4 分） （2）寒假学习、做志愿者活动（共 4 分） 3.各档次的给分范围和要求 满分档（15 分） ：文本长度符合要求、书写规范，涵盖所有要点、结构规范、条理清楚、逻 辑严密，词汇丰富、没有任何语法错误。 第五档（12-14 分）文本长度符合要求、书写规范，涵盖所有要点、结构规范、条理清楚、 逻辑严密，词汇比较丰富、有少量语法错误。 第四档（9-11 分）文本长度符合要求、书写规范，部分涵盖要点、行为基本连贯，词汇不 够丰富、有一些语法错误。 第三档（6-8 分）文本长度与要求有明显距离、书写不规范，要点不完整、行文不连贯，词 汇量不足、错误较多，勉强能看出作文意图。 第二档（3-5 分）能用句子表达，错误百出，只能勉强猜测出作文意图。 第一档（0-2 分）有一些英语单词，但与话题毫不相干；白卷 0 分。 听力原文 Text1 M:I saw Emily yesterday evening.

W: OK, and then what? M: Go straight for half a mile until you see a group of houses on the left. My house is the one with all the lights on. I’ll wait for you outside.
