Here at the Footwear Museum you can see exhibits from all over the world. You can find out about shoes worn by everyone from the Ancient Egyptians to pop stars. Room 1 The celebrity footwear section is probably the most popular in the entire museum. Started in the 1950s there is a wide variety of shoes and boots belonging to everyone from queens and presidents to pop stars and actors! Most visitors find the celebrities' choice of footwear extremely interesting.

Room 2 Most of our visitors are amazed—and shocked—by the collection of “special purpose” shoes on exhibition here at the Museum of Footwear. For example, there are Chinese shoes made of silk that were worn by women to tie their feet firmly to prevent them from growing too much!

?
Room 3 As well as shoes and boots, the museum also exhibits shoeshaped objects. The variety is unbelievable. For example, there is a metal lamp that resembles a pair of shoes, and Greek wine bottles that look like legs!

The Footwear Library People come from all over the world to study in our excellent footwear library. Designers and researchers come here to look up information on anything and everything related to the subject of footwear. 51. Where would you find a famous singer's shoes? A. Room 1. B. Room 2. C. Room 3. D. The Footwear Library. 52. All exhibits each room ________. A. share the same theme B. have the same shape C. are made of the same material D. belong to the same social class 53. Which of the following is true according to the text? A. The oldest exhibits in Room 1 were made in the 1950s. B. Room 2 is the most visited place in the museum. C. Room 3 has a richer variety of exhibits than the other two. D. Researchers come to the Footwear Library for data. 54. The purpose of the text is to get more people to ________. A. do research B. design shoes C. visit the museum D. follow celebrities B Three Boys and a Dad Brad closed the door slowly as Sue left home to visit her mother. Expecting a whole day to relax, he was thinking whether to read the newspaper or watch his favourite TV talk show on his first day off in months. “This will be like a walk in the park,” he’d told his wife. “I’ll look after the kids, and you can go visit your mom.” Things started well, but just after eight o’clock, his three little “good kids”—Mike, Randy, and Alex—came down the stairs in their night clothes and shouted “breakfast, daddy.” When food had not appeared within thirty seconds, Randy began using his spoon on Alex’s head as if it were a drum. Alex started to shout loudly in time to the beat(节拍). Mike chanted “Where’s my toast, where’s my toast” in the background. Brad realized his newspaper would have to wait for a few seconds. Life became worse after breakfast. Mike wore Randy’s underwear on his head. Randy locked himself in the bathroom, while Alex shouted again because he was going to wet his pants. Nobody could find clean socks, although they were before their very eyes. Someone named “Not Me” had spilled a whole glass of orange juice into the basket of clean clothes. Brad knew the talk show had already started. By ten o’clock, things were out of control. Alex was wondering why the fish in the jar refused his bread and butter. Mike was trying to show off his talent by decorating the kitchen wall with his colour pencils. Randy, thankfully, appeared to be reading quietly in the family room,but closer examination showed that he was eating apple jam straight from the bottle with his hands. Brad Realized that the talk show was over and reading would be impossible. At exactly 11:17, Brad called the daycare centre (日托所).“I suddenly have to go into work and my wife’s away. Can I bring the boys over in a few minutes?” The answer was obviously “yes” because Brad was smiling. 55. When his wife left home, Brad expected to ______ .

?
A. go out for a walk in the park. B. watch TV talk show with his children. C. enjoy his first day off work. D. read the newspaper to his children. 56. Which of the following did Randy do? A. Drawing on the wall. B. Eating apple jam. C. Feeding the fish. D. Reading in a room. 57.Why did Brad ask the daycare centre for help? A. Because he wanted to clean up his house. B. Because he suddenly had to go to his office. C. Because he found it hard to manage his boys home. D. Because he had to take his wife back. 58. This text is developed______ A. by space. B. by comparison. C. by process. D. by time. C Honey(蜂蜜)from the African forest is not only a kind of natural sugar, it is also delicious. Most people, and many animals, like eating it. However, the only way for them to get that honey is to find a wild bees' nest(巢)and take the honey from it. Often, these nests are high up in trees, and it is difficult to find them. In parts of Africa, though, people and animals looking for honey have a strange and unexpected helper 一 a little bird called a honey guide. The honey guide does not actually like honey, but it does like the wax (蜂蜡) in the beehives (蜂房). The little bird cannot reach this wax, which is deep inside the bees’ nest. So, when it finds a suitable nest, it looks for someone to help it. The honey guide gives a loud cry that attracts the attention of both passing animals and people. Once it has their attention, it flies through the forest, waiting from time to time for the curious animal or people as it leads them to the nest. When they finally arrive at the nest, the follower reaches in to get at the delicious honey as the bird patiently waits and watches. Some of the honey, and the wax, always falls to the ground, and this is when the honey guide takes its share. Scientists do not know why the honey guide likes eating the wax, but it is very determined in its efforts to get it. The birds seem to be able to smell wax from a long distance away. They will quickly arrive whenever a beekeeper is taking honey from his beehives, and will even enter churches when beeswax candles are being lit. 59. Why is it difficult to find a wild bees' nest? A. It's small in size. B. It's hidden in trees. C. It's covered with wax. D. It's hard to recognize. 60. What do the words "the follower" in Paragraph 2 refer to? A. A bee. B. A bird. C. A honey seeker. D. A beekeeper. 61. The honey guide is special in the way________. A. it gets its food B. it goes to church C. it sings in the forest D. it reaches into bees' nests 62. What can be the best title for the text? A. Wild Bees B. Wax and Honey C. Beekeeping in Africa D. Honey-Lover's Helper D Medical drugs sometimes cause more damage than they cure. One solution to this problem is to put the drugs inside a capsule, protecting them from the body—and the body from them—until they can be released at just the right spot. There are lots of ways to trigger(引发) this release, including changing temperature, acidity, and so on. But triggers can come with their own risks—burns, for example. Now,

?
researchers in California have designed what could be a harmless trigger to date: shining near-infrared light (NIR,近红外线) on the drug in the capsule. The idea of using light to liberate the drug in the capsule isn't new. Researchers around the globe have developed polymers (聚合物) and other materials that begin to break down when they absorb either ultraviolet (UV,紫外线) or visible light. But tissues also readily absorb UV and visible light, which means the drug release can be triggered only near the skin, where the light can reach the capsule. NIR light largely passes through tissues, so researchers have tried to use it as a trigger. But few compounds(化合物) absorb NIR well and go through chemical changes. That changed last year when Adah Almutairi, a chemist at the University of California, San Diego, reported that she and her colleagues had designed a polymer that breaks down when it absorbs NIR light. Their polymer used a commercially available NIR-absorbing group called o-nitrobenzyl (ONB). When they catch the light, ONB groups fall off the polymer, leading to its breakdown. But ONB is only a so-so NIR absorber, and it could be poisonous to cells when it separates from the polymer. So Almutairi and her colleagues reported creating a new material for capsules that's even better. This one consists of a long chain of compounds called cresol groups linked in a polymer. Cresol contains reactive(易反应的) components that make it highly unstable in its polymeric form, a feature Almutairi and her colleagues use to their advantage. After polymerizing the cresols, they cap each reactive component with a light-absorbing compound called Bhc. When the Bhcs absorb NIR light, the reactive groups are exposed and break the long polymer into two short chains. Shining additional light continues this breakdown, potentially releasing any drugs in the capsule. What's more, Almutairi says, Bhc is 10 times better at absorbing NIR than is ONB and is not poisonous to cells. 63. According to the passage, which of the following could be the best trigger? A. Temperature change. B. NIR light. C. Acidity change. D. UV light. 64. Why in ONB unsatisfactory? A. It breaks down when it absorbs NIR light. B. It falls off the polymer and triggers drug release. C. It has not come onto the market up till now. D. It is not effective enough and could be poisonous. 65. Which word can be used to complete the following process of changes? Bhcs absorb NIR. ?Part of the cresol is____. ? Polymer breaks down. ? Drug is released. A. protected B. formed C. exposed D. combined 第二节 (共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 China’s Olympic lesson Although the Athens Games are over, ___66____ . While busy preparing for the new semester in the first week back at school, many youngsters have started to wonder what Beijing can learn from Athens. “I was amazed by the fantastic opening ceremony from the moment it began,” said She Fei, a Senior 2 boy from Beijing Huiwen High School. He represented China in Athens and got the chance to see the opening ceremony with his own eyes. “Greece has done such a good job in showing its colorful culture using high-tech methods. ____67_____ ” he said. “It seems that Beijing needs to combine the use of advanced technology with creative design to present its culture to the rest of the world. ____68____ ” he added.

?
Echoing her view on the challenge of designing an unique opening ceremony, Zhang Yufei, Senior 3 from No. 2 High School attached to Beijing Normal University, thinks that director Zhang Yimo’s presentation of Chinese culture will be out of date by 2008. “Peking Opera costumes and the big red lantern did not seem to surprise the audience in the closing ceremony. ____69____ ” She said. Other students worry people’s bad habits, ____70____ , might be the weak point of Beijing 2008. “In Athens, all the residents were very careful with their behavior and manners. I think they have set a good example of Olympic hospitality. Beijingers can learn from them and do better.” She Fei said. A.such as spitting on the ground B.We definitely need something better in 2008. C.Chinese teenagers’ passion for the Olympic has not faded D.Beijing is the best place to host it. E.Beijing can learn a lot from the success of the opening ceremony in Athens. F.This will ensure Beijing does an equally good job on four years time. G.We are sure Beijing will surprise the whole world. 第 II 卷 第四部分写作(共三节,满分 50 分) 第一节 任务型阅读,一空一词。 (10 分) D. R. Gaul Middle School is in Union, Maine, a blueberry-farming town where the summer fair finds kids competing in pig scrambles and pie-eating contests. Gaul, with about 170 seventh- and eighth-graders, has its own history of lower level academic achievement. One likely reason: Education beyond the basic requirements hasn't always been a top priority for families who've worked the same land for generations. Here, few adults have college degrees, and outsiders (teachers included) are often kept at a respectful distance. Since 2002, Gaul's students have been divided into four classes, each of them taught almost every subject by two teachers. The goal: To find common threads across disciplines to help students create a big picture that gives fresh meaning and context to their classwork -- and sparks motivation for learning. Working within state guidelines, each team makes its individual schedules and lesson plans, incorporating non-textbook literature, hands-on lab work and field trips. If students are covering the Civil War in social studies, they're reading The Red Badge of Courage or some other period literature in English class. In science, they study the viruses and bacteria that caused many deaths in the war. Team teaching isn't unusual. About 77 percent of middle schools now employ some form of it, says John Lounsbury, consulting editor for the National Middle School Association. But most schools use fouror five-person teams, which Gaul tried before considering two-person teams more effective. Gaul supports the team concept by "looping" classes (跟班) so that the same two teachers stick with the same teens through seventh and eighth grades. Combining teams and looping creates an extremely strong bond between teacher and student. It also, says teacher Beth Ahlholm, "allows us to build an excellent relationship with parents." Ahlholm and teammate Madelon Kelly are fully aware how many glazed looks they see in the classroom, but they know 72 percent of their eighth-graders met Maine's reading standard last year -double the statewide average. Only 31 percent met the math standard, still better than the state average (21 percent). Their students also beat the state average in writing and science. And in2006, Gaul was one of 47 schools in the state to see testing gains of at least 20 percent in four of the previous five years, coinciding

Good morning, everyone, I am Li Hua from Xingguang Middle School. The topic of my speech is "Let's Ride Bicycles". As is known to us, cars bring us a lot of problems. Air pollution , the most serous one, has make it hard for humans to live in the world with good health . And with more and more people buying private cars, traffic become heavier and heavier. Therefore, it’s high time we chose another better means of transport,

?
that is, cycling. There are many good reasons to ride bicycles. First of all, compared to cars, bicycles are much cheaper to buy and maintain, and you don't have all the added costs of fuel, and parking. What's more, bicycles are more environmentally friendly than cars, because they hardly make noises and exhaust. Cycling has become a new trend around the world, a good way of energy saving and low-carbon life. Last but not least, cycling is an excellent way to keep fit and live longer. By riding bicycles, you can cut down your risk of heart attacks, high blood pressure and other illnesses. So I think, riding bicycles actually has great effects on us. Let's ride bicycles from today on! 6 个要点每个 3 分,共 18 分 两个 topic sentence, 每个 2 分,共 4 分 适当的连接与过渡: 3 分 听力原文 Text1 W: What do you usually have for breakfast? M: Fried cakes.

W: Don’t remind me about them! They are so complicated. Text5 M: You prefer meat to vegetables and fruit, don’t you? W: Yeah. I think different kinds of meat taste better than vegetables, and they are more nutritious. M: I don’t quite agree with you. Meat is more delicious than vegetables, but it is not more nutritious than vegetables. Eating too much meat will do harm to your health. Text6 M: Mrs. Montgomery? I’ve been trying to figure out when we should have the New Year’s party. Could you take a look at these dates? W: Sure. The twenty-ninth is out. I’ll be out of the office all day at a seminar. Either the twenty-eighth or the thirtieth is fine. M: Well, why don’t we make it the thirtieth? We can have it from three to five. That way, everybody can just go home afterwards. W: Sounds good to me. You make the invitations. I’ve got to run. I’ve got a meeting in five minutes. Text7 W: Hello, February’s Department Store. Can I help you?

But we have three different brands available, Curzon, Aderson, and Instant. Which one would you prefer? M: I’m not quite familiar with those brands. Could you recommend one for me? W: Well, that depends on what kind of bicycle you want. The Curzon is the cheapest one, only 60dollars; the Aderson bike is a 2011 model, the newest one; the Instant is more comfortable than the other two, but it is the most expensive of all, 85dollars. M: Oh, yes, it is really hard to decide. I think I’ll come over and take a look at them. Thank you so much. See you later. W: See you. Text8 W: Charles, do you know how this telephone works? The sign says you can use it for long-distance calls, but I don’t know where to put the money. M: Oh, well, this kind of phone doesn’t take coins. You have to buy a special card to put it in down there at the bottom. W: I’ve never heard of that before. M: Here, I have one myself. W: Where did you get it? M: At the information office on campus. It costs ten dollars. I think you can get them directly from the phone company, too. W: Do you save money by using the card? M: No, not really. But it’s pretty convenient. W: I guess I’ll go over to the office and get one now. M: Here, just take mine. W: Thanks. Are you sure you don’t mind? M: It’s no problem. Text9 W: Hey, John, rise and shine. M: What time is it? Sheila? I have no idea how long I’ve been here. W: Hmm….. The library is too quiet. You need a place that’s nice and noisy to study. M: You have got a point. I always mean to study hard but I quickly nod off. It’s just too quiet here. W: Maybe you were thinking of Carlson’s psychology lesson. M: Yeah, he’s a nice guy, but he just can’t seem to come down to earth. The whole time he seemed to be talking to himself. That’s as good as a sleeping pill. W: You should have been in my history class with Professor Rivers. What a trip! One student got up and challenged him to name six women who contributed to the American Revolution. He was speechless. M: The class must have been buzzing. W: Especially when the student started telling him over a dozen names. She was no fool and she wasn’t going to let him off the hook. M: Seems like she gave Professor Rivers a good lecture. W: Yeah, although I kind of felt that she should have given him a chance to save face. After all, I doubt whether many people can name even more. M: That’s true. I sure can’t. Text10 Hi, I’d like to talk to the manager about something. I have to travel every day from Souk Road to

the airport. Only the Number 16 bus travels along this road. Your timetable is there. It shows that there are buses from Souk Road to the airport every ten minutes. If this is so, why do I have to wait half an hour for a bus nearly every day? The rules say that if there are empty seats on a bus, they just stop at every stop where people are waiting. Why is it, therefore, that half-empty buses go straight past me when I am standing at the bus stop? The rules say that no bus may carry more than 40 seated passengers and 20 standing passengers. Yesterday I was the first to get off the bus when I reached the airport. I counted the other passengers as they got off. They were 129 0f them. Clearly printed on the back of every bus is a sign that says “Highest speed: 50mph.” The distance from Souk Road to Kai Tak is 12 miles. On Saturday morning a Number 49 bus traveled this distance in 10 minutes. At times, it must have done at least 80 or 90 mph. It is obvious that our bus companies have no respect for the rules or consideration for the
