【2014 届辽宁五校协作体摸底试题】A MELBOURNE, Australia – A kangaroo frightened by a man walking his dog attacked the pair, throwing the pet underwater and hitting the owner in the stomach with its back legs. The Australian, Chris Rickard, was in stable condition Monday after the attack, which ended when the 49-year-old struck the kangaroo in the throat. Rickard said he was walking his blue dog, Rocky, on Sunday morning when they surprised a sleeping kangaroo in Arthur's Creek northeast of Melbourne. The dog chased the animal into a pond, when the kangaroo turned and knocked the pet underwater. When Rickard tried to pull his dog free, the kangaroo turned on him, attacking with its back legs and tearing a deep cut into his stomach and across his face. "I thought I might take action to drag the dog out from under his grasp, but I didn't expect him to actually attack me," Rickard, 49, told The Herald Sun newspaper. "It was a shock at the start because it was a kangaroo, about 5 feet high, they don't go around killing people." "I was stuck having to hold on to the dog with both hands because it was half drowned and I couldn't really see anything because the kangaroo just attacked me.‖ He added, "All I could do was just keep pushing for the bank and he was trying to push me under the water, so at that point I struck him in the throat and that made him back off a little bit. "I don't think I'll ever be able to watch kangaroo programs quite the same as I used to — it might bring back a couple of bad memories.‖ Kangaroos rarely attack people but will fight if they feel threatened. Dogs often chase kangaroos, which have been known to lead the pets into water and defend themselves there. Rickard said he ended the attack by hitting the kangaroo in the throat adding Rocky was "half-drowned" when he pulled him from the water. 【小题 1】56. Rickard and his pet dog were attacked when _________. A. he was teasing a kangaroo C. swimming in the pond 【小题 2】57. In Australia, kangaroos ________.

【2013 届江苏 扬州中学高三最后一卷】B Aggressive pedestrians are in fact as dangerous as careless drivers. They cause traffic accidents, injury and death. These dangerous walkers can be seen in any big city all over the world. About 69% of last year‘s pedestrian deaths in the US occurred in urban areas. They cross streets ignoring ―DON‘T WALK‖ signals, suddenly appear without warning from behind parked vehicles, walk slowly at crossroads with cell phones attached to heads, blocking traffic.

These pedestrians and drivers share a common disregard for the rules of the road, both for selfish reasons. The drivers believe in the power of their machines. If their machines can go faster, they believe they have the right to go faster. If their machines are bigger, they believe they have the right to push smaller vehicles aside. Aggressive pedestrians, on the other hand, believe in the primacy(首位) of the individual, the idea that they are first in any environment, under any circumstances, even when they are on foot in a roaring tide of steel and rubber. Last year, an estimated 5,220 pedestrians died in traffic accidents. Some 69,000 pedestrians were injured. On average, that worked out to one pedestrian killed in a traffic crash every 101 minutes, and one injured every eight minutes. The good news is that the accident rate is dropping. For example, the number of pedestrians killed last year was 24 percent less than the number killed in traffic accidents a decade earlier. The bad news is that the basic causes of pedestrian deaths remain pretty much the same----disregard for traffic signals, inattention and crossing roads under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Alcohol, in fact, was involved in 46 percent of the traffic accidents that resulted in pedestrian deaths. Of those, 31 percent of the pedestrians were found to be drunk. The bottom line is that the pedestrians must do more to protect their lives as well as the lives of other road users. They can start by obeying traffic signals, using marked cross-walks and calling a cab when they‘ve had too much to drink. 【小题 1】60. The passage is mainly about _____. A. how aggressive pedestrians cause traffic accidents B. why so many Americans were killed on roads last year C. what the traffic rules of the road about pedestrians were D. who are to blame for pedestrian deaths, drunk drivers or the aggressive pedestrians 【小题 2】61. What is the pedestrians‘ selfish reason for traffic jams? A. They know all drivers are skilled and with great care. B. They believe individuals are always first. C. They think traffic rules have nothing to do with them. D. They guess all vehicles will slow down at crossroads. 【小题 3】62. What was NOT the basic cause of pedestrian deaths in the US a decade ago? A. Disregard for traffic signals C. Crossing roads drunk.

We observe today not a victory of party but a celebration of freedom, symbolizing an end as well as a beginning, signifying renewal as well as change for I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forbears (ancestors) prescribed nearly a century and three-quarters ago. The world is very different now, for man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forbears fought are still at issue around the globe, the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God. We dare not forget today that we are the heirs(继承人)of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe (enemy) alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage and unwilling to disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage and unwilling to disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world. Let every nation know whether it wishes us well or ill that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty. This much we pledge (promise solemny) and more. In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility. I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it and the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so, my fellow Americans ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the Freedom of Man. Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us here the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God‘s work must truly be our own. 【小题 1】56. What should friends and foes know? A. That the United States is powerful.

【2014 届 新余一中宜春中学高三联考】D Two friends have an argument that breaks up their friendship forever, even though neither one can remember how the whole thing got started. Such sad events happen over and over in high schools across the country. In fact, according to an official report on youth violence, ―In our country today, the greatest threat to the lives of children and adolescents is not disease or starvation or abandonment, but the terrible reality of violence‖. Given that this is the case, why aren‘t students taught to manage conflict the way they are taught to solve math problems, drive cars, or stay physically fit? First of all, students need to realize that conflict is unavoidable. A report on violence among middle school and high school students indicates that most violent incidents between students begin with a relatively minor insult. For example, a fight could start over the fact that one student eats a peanut butter sandwich each lunchtime. Laughter over the sandwich can lead to insults, which in turn can lead to violence. The problem isn‘t in the sandwich, but in the way students deal with the conflict. Once students recognize that conflict is unavoidable, they can practice the golden rule of conflict resolution: stay calm. Once the student feels calmer, he or slid should choose words that will calm the other person down as well. Rude words, name-calling, and accusation only add fuel to the emotional fire. On the other hand, soft words spoken at a normal sound level can put out the fire before it explodes out of control. After both sides have calmed down, they can use another key strategy for conflict resolution: listening. Listening allows the two sides to understand each other. One person should describe his or her side, and the other person should listen without interrupting. Afterward, the listener can ask non-threatening questions to clarify the speaker‘s position. Then the two people should change roles. Finally, students need to consider what they are hearing. This doesn‘t mean trying to figure out what‘s wrong

with the other person. It means understanding what the real issue is and what both sides are trying to accomplish. For example, a shouting match over a peanut butter sandwich might happen because one person thinks the other person is unwilling to try new things. Students need to ask themselves questions such as these: How did this start? What do I really want? What am I afraid of? As the issue becomes clearer, the conflict often simply becomes smaller. Even if it doesn‘t, careful thought helps both sides figure out a mutual solution. There will always be conflict in schools, but that doesn‘t mean there needs to be violence. After students in Atlanta started a conflict resolution program, according to Educators for Social Responsibility, ―64% of the teachers reported less physical violence in the classroom; 75% of the teachers reported an increase in student cooperation; and 92% of the students felt better about themselves‖. Learning to resolve conflicts can help students deal with friends, teachers, parents, bosses, and coworkers. In that way, conflict resolution is a basic life skill that should be taught in schools across the country. 【小题 1】This article is mainly about A. the lives of school children C. how to deal with school conflicts . B. the cause of arguments in schools D. how to analyze youth violence .

【小题 2】 From Paragraph 2 we can learn that A. violence is more likely to occur at lunchtime B. the eating habit of a student is often the cause of a fight C. students tend to lose their temper easily

They were looking for guards, not drivers. This suited me. I couldn‘t drive a car but thought that I could probably guard a train, and perhaps continue to write my poems between stations.

Stevens for an insurance company. I‘d be a subway guard. I could see myself being cheerful, useful, a good man in a crisis. Obviously I‘d be overqualified but I was willing to forget about that in return for a steady income and travel privileges — those being particularly welcome to someone living a long way from the city centre. The next day I sat down, with almost a hundred other candidates, for the intelligence test. I must have done all right because after about half an hour‘s wait I was sent into another room for a psychological test. This time there were only about fifty candidates. The interviewer sat at a desk. Candidates were signaled forward to occupy the seat opposite him when the previous occupant had been dismissed, after a greater or shorter time. Obviously the long interviews were the more successful ones. Some of the interviews were as short as five minutes. Mine was the only one that lasted a minute and a half. I can remember the questions now: ―Why did you leave your last job?‖ ―Why did you leave your job before that?‖ ―And the one before that?‖ I can‘t recall my answers, except that they were short at first and grew progressively shorter. His closing statement, I thought, revealed a lack of sensitivity which helped to explain why as a psychologist, he had risen no higher than the underground railway. ―You‘ve failed the psychological test and we are unable to offer you a position.‖ Failing to get that job was my low point. Or so I thought, believing that the work was easy. Actually, such jobs — being a postman is another one I still desire — demand exactly the sort of elementary yet responsible awareness that the habitual dreamer is least qualified to give. But I was still far short of full self-understanding. I was also short of cash. 【小题1】The writer applied for the job chiefly because _________. A.he could no longer afford to live without one B.he wanted to work in the centre of London

C.he was not interested in any other available job D.he had received some suitable training 【小题2】The writer thought he was overqualified for the job because _________. A.he often traveled underground C.he had worked in a company B.he had written many poems D.he could deal with difficult situations

【小题3】What does the writer realize now that he did not realize then? A.How unpleasant ordinary jobs can be. C.How difficult it is to be a poet. B.How unsuitable he was for the job. D.How badly he did in the interview.

【小题4】The length of his interview meant that _________. A.he did not like the interviewer at all C. he was not going to be offered the job B.he had not done well in the intelligence test D.he had little work experience to talk about

【小题5】What‘s the writer‘s opinion of the psychologist? A. He was rather unsympathetic. C. He was quite inefficient. B. He was unhappy with his job. D. He was very aggressive(有进取心的).

But when I see my son, Tonio and his younger brother Sam going down a slide together, one‘s arm around the other, I know I have missed something wonderful. Not only did I never have a brother, but also I had no friendships like theirs. My sister was old enough to help take care of me, so she was more a mother than a playmate, and I was more a pest than a friend. A brother would have been wonderful, but it was not in the family planning. Now I finally live with brothers, my sons, Tonio and Sam. I am watching them build the kind of relationship that I once dreamed about. They go to bed together. When one comes into our bed after a nightmare, my wife and I know that before morning his brother will follow. Sam manages the world with more ease than his elder brother, whose frustrations often bring him to tears. With a sincere ―Smile, Tonio,‖ Sam is the one who comforts him. Tonio, on the other hand, has stopped playing with boys at his age who don‘t like playing with Sam. They are always backing each other up. I don‘t know what kind of relationship they will have when they grow up. Parents always want their children to have what they never could. I want them to have each other. So I imagine them going to the same college, marrying sisters and living on the same block. That‘s why I was so worried the day Tonio started kindergarten. I felt that I would lose something too.

headed for school that morning, both boys seemed relaxed, as if neither had any idea that the day was going to be different, that starting then, Tonio would be leaving behind his brother, his best friend, his right arm. Tonio‘s first day was chaotic, with hundreds of children outside looking for their teachers. Before any of us could say goodbye, Tonio disappeared with his new classmates. He turned to wave and then was gone. It was so sudden. Sam even didn‘ t see him go. Although parents had been asked to ease the craziness of the first day by statying out of the school, I lifted Sam up and took him to Tonio‘s classroom, looking for a glimpse of Tonio. Sam spotted him first. My wife and I didn‘t head back home immediately, stopping instead at a coffee shop to treat Sam to hot chocolate. We even let him eat ice-cream with his fingers. Sam was still quiet, so I asked him if he missed his brother already. He didn‘t answer. Instead he asked, ―Daddy, is Tonio going to be gone forever?‖ ―No, Sammy,‖ I said, feeling happy about his sweet question. ―Not forever, just until three o‘clock.‖ I sometimes think that the greatest thing I have ever done is to help create these brothers. And I didn‘t stop with them. We had another child, and for the third time in a row, it was a boy. It wasn‘t long before his brothers climbed into the crib(婴儿床) to play with him.

【2014 届安 徽池州一中月考】D One day, when I went shopping with Julie, we came across something special. Waiting in a long checkout line, I thought about going to another, which had the shortest queue. There was only one guy in it, but he was in a wheelchair. Well, we stepped in behind him. At first, he seemed to be having difficulty getting his groceries onto the checking desk. But after a while, I realized that what he was actually doing was separating them into two piles.

However, doing that job was no easy task in itself. I offered to help, but he and the checkout lady had it under control. He asked my wife if she would mind putting his empty basket away. What must it be like, I wondered, to be so dependent on other people like that? The checkout operator came around and gave him his change and the items he needed to have to hand. She hung one bag of groceries over a handle at the back of his chair. I offered to get the other, bigger, bag and he said, ―No. But you could do me a favour. Take that lot along to the entrance and give it to Angela.‖ As I was told, I did that, leaving Julie with our shopping. Angela, as turned out, was collecting food for people who might otherwise go hungry! I hadn't even noticed her before. This guy, despite the limitations that his physical condition imposed on him, had bought more than twice as much shopping as he needed – and given the bigger bag away to help other people! He didn't let the fact that he needed help stop him from being a help. He may have been limited physically, but his heart was more than capable of overcoming all that. And it changed my idea of dependence when I realized that the help he had given was more than the help he had received. So … what‘s holding the rest of us back? 【小题 1】 From the first paragraph, we know that______.

Lee, 58, on Sunday accepted the Academy Award for best director for Life of Pi, a 3D adventure-drama film. Lee had won the top directing award in 2006 for Brokeback Mountain and the best foreign language film Oscar in 2001 for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Lee came to Hollywood's attention after directing three Chinese-language films in the early 1990s, with an emphasis on the interactions between modernity and Chinese traditions. Some Web users called Lee "a source of pride for Chinese people," and admired him for bearing the torch of Chinese culture. However, a large number of audience members and critics from the mainland expressed their frustrations over home-made movies: Mainland filmmakers have made numerous ambitious tries for the prestigious award but never won. Hao Jie, a young director whose 2010 film Single Man won the Special Jury Prize in the Tokyo Filmex Festival but was never screened in the mainland for it showed complex sex lives in a village. "Due to the censorship(审查), we are prevented from the beginning of our production, which forbids our works from mirroring realities," Hao said. While acknowledging the system's role in undermining(削弱) excellent works, Su Mu, a well-known film critic, argued that the atmosphere in the mainland's film circle is also to blame. "Lee produces his works with his heart, but most mainland directors now only have money in mind." Though having obtained approval for his second film from the film authority, Hao said cinemas have kept delaying the screening of his work. "This is another factor that prevents us from progressing. Cinemas won't risk showing our film, which features no stars and is considered non-mainstream," complained Hao. 【小题 1】What does the underlined phrase ―the prestigious award‖ refer to? A. the Best Director of Oscar C. the Special Jury Prize B. any of the Oscar Awards D. the best foreign language film Oscar

【小题 2】Which of the following statements is true? A. Ang Lee‘s films are always focusing on Chinese traditions. B. Chinese audiences are proud of their Chinese identity in the films. C. Ang Lee has won the world‘s favor only by means of his three Oscars. D. Ang Lee is famous for his combining modernity and Chinese traditions. 【小题 3】Which of the following is NOT the factor that prevents Chinese mainland films‘ progressing? A. Strict censorship. B.

【2014 届安徽望江中学月考】A Once there was an 11-year-old boy who went fishing with his father in the middle of a New Hampshire lake. On the day before bass (巴斯鱼) season opened, they were fishing early in the evening, catching other fish with worms. Then the boy tied on a small silver lure (鱼饵) and put it into the lake. Suddenly he felt that something very big pulling on the lure. His father watched with admiration as the boy skillfully brought the fish beside the bank. Finally he lifted the tired fish from the water. It was the largest one he had ever seen, but it was a bass. The boy and his father looked at the big fish. The father lit a match and looked at his watch. It was 10 pm – two hours before the season opened. He looked at the fish, then at the boy. ―You‘ll have to put it back, son,‖ he said. ―Dad!‖ cried the boy, ―There will be other fish,‖ said his father. ―Not as big as this one,‖ cried the boy. He looked around the lake. No other fishermen or boats were in sight in the moonlight. He looked again at his father. Even though no one had seen them, nor could anyone ever know what time he had caught the fish, the boy could tell from his father‘s voice that the decision couldn‘t be changed. He threw the huge bass into the black water. The big fish disappeared. The boy thought that he would never again see such a big fish. That was 34 years ago. Today the boy is successful architect in New York City. He often takes his own son and daughters to fish at the same place. And he was right. He has never again caught such a large fish as the one he got that night long ago. But he does see that same fish … again and again … every time he has an ethical (伦理的, 道德的) decision to make. For, as his father had taught him, ethics are simple matters of right and wrong. It is only the practice of ethics that is difficult. 【小题 1】56.What happened when the big fish turned out to be a bass? A. The boy cooked the big fish. B. The boy threw the bass back into the water willingly. C. The father lit a match in order to check the time.

届广东珠海市高三 9 月摸底】(B) The USA is a land of immigrants. Between 1815 and 1914, the world witnessed the greatest peaceful migration in its history: 35 million people, mostly Europeans, left their homelands to start new lives in America. Why did these people risk everything by leaving their homes and families? First, what forced emigrants to make the decision to leave? One major cause for European farmers to leave was the rise in population which in turn led to land hunger. Another was politics. There was an increased taxation (税收) and the growth of armies, and many young men fled eastern Europe to avoid being forced to join the army. Physical hunger provided another pressing reason. Following the collapse (衰退)of the economy of southern Italy in the 1860s, hundreds of thousands decided to start a new life in America. Religion also encouraged millions to leave the Old World. In short, people chose to leave their homes for social, economic and religious reasons. As a result, by 1890 among a total population of 63 million, there were more than nine million foreign-born Americans. But what were the attractions? First of all, there was the promise of land which was so scarce in Europe. Next, factories were calling for workers, and pay conditions were much better than back home. Men were needed to open up the West and build the long railroads, and new towns needed settlers to live in and to develop business. There was the space for religious people to practice their faith in peace. This immigration meant that by around the 1850s Americans of non-English had started to be more than those of English. As we know, there were losers. To start with, there were those unwilling immigrants, the slaves who had been used as a source of cheap labour. Nor should we forget the equally unlucky American Indians. By 1860 there were 27 million free whites, four million slaves and a mere 488,000 free blacks. Nowadays, the USA is still seen by millions as the Promised Land. As always, it remains an attractive place to those who think it will offer them a second chance. 【小题 1】What is not the cause for people to leave their homeland? A. The search for religious freedom. B. The search for adventure. C. Unwillingness to join the army. D. Economics. 【小题 2】Why was life of the 19th Century European farmers difficult? A. There was no land.

We planned to travel to Belgium, Netherlands and West Germany. I have clear memories even today of going to Mumbai airport at night all excited about finally going abroad. I had heard several great things about Lufthansa till then but now I finally got to experience them first hand, during the flight to Frankfurt. We flew business class and even today I can remember the excellent service by the Lufthansa crew (工作人员). The flight was really smooth and thoroughly enjoyable, even for someone like me, who is especially afraid of flying. After spending almost two weeks in Europe, we took the Lufthansa airport express from Dusseldorf to Frankfurt airport, for our return flight. What a journey that was! All along the Rhine (莱茵河), it was simply an unforgettable experience. I had a sombre feeling on the flight back to Mumbai as it marked the end of a wonderful vacation, but the Lufthansa crew members were able to change it into a most enjoyable experience yet again, with the quality of their service. Being the first airline to take me abroad, Lufthansa will always hold a special place in my heart. Even today, I continue to enjoy flights on Lufthansa and simply cannot dream of choosing any other airline. Flying, in general,for me,has always been a terrible and painful experience.Flying on Lufthansa,however, is something I always have and always will look forward to. 【小题 1】 Which country does the author live in now?

Almost every day of every year, Murbach‘s thoughts turn to vision of a perfectly shaped evergreen tree that will take everyone's breath away.

Murbach is the man responsible for finding the towering tree that makes more attractive Manhattan‘s Rockefeller Center each Christmas season. ―I'm always looking for a tree,‖ the center's chief gardener says. ―I look for it even when I go to the beach in the summer. It' s like a homework assignment hanging over your head.‖ And if he gets it wrong, there's nothing hiding it. ―Every day it's up, 400,000 people go by, and 2.5 million people watch the lighting celebration on television,‖he says. This year‘s tree, a 74-foot Nomy spruce (云杉) from Richfield, Ohio, flown to New York on the world's largest cargo plane, was lighted on December 2. The arrival of the tree leads in the Christmas season in New York — a tradition dating back to 1931, when the workers building Rockefeller Center put up a small tree with ornaments (装饰品). The search for the next year's tree starts soon after the old tree is chopped up for wood chips and horse-jumping logs. Murbach has three standards: The tree must be at least 65 feet high, at least 35 feet across and leaves dense (密集的) enough not to see through. That's not as simple as it sounds. Though forests are full of evergreens, few get enough sunlight or space to fill out. And branches in snow regions often break under the weight, making trees unbalanced. Back at the office, he sorts through hundreds of letters from people offering their trees, many addressed simply to ―Mr. Christmas Tree Man.‖ Though there was occasional anxiety attack and sleepless night, Murbach knows the effect the tree has on people: ―It's for bringing people together, attempting to bring together people you love. That's what I hope it sets off.‖ But Murbach says he's always too worn out to celebrate Christmas. 【小题 1】 Which is the correct order of the events in the passage? a. Murbach‘s thoughts turn to a perfectly shaped tree. b. 2.5 million people watch the Christmas tree. c. The tree is flown to New York. d. It was lighted on December 2. e. The tree is chopped up. f.

On Sunday Feb 10, 2013, I was preparing to celebrate Chinese New Year again – in London‘s Chinatown. It was raining. It was cold. But ever since I left Beijing in August, I had promised myself I would celebrate Chinese New Year – if only to help with my Beijing ―homesickness‖. Central London was dressed up for the occasion. There was a stage for a big fireworks display for the evening. Even so, it wasn‘t like my real Beijing chunjie. Even buying a baozi didn‘t cheer me up. It cost about 10 times as much as the real thing does in Beijing and got stuck to its rain-ruined paper bag. Cold, wet and depressed, I ran into a shop for shelter. Suddenly, there it was. Between the packets of dried meat and fish, the bags of rice and the smell of dried noodles in this little Chinese supermarket, I had found home.

me please; I’d like to show you a very special small shark commonly known as horn sharks, only found in the coastal waters of north-west North America.

Look at this shark, and you can easily see the horns on it and you will know the reason why it is called the horn shark is that it has the broad, flattened head and two large horn-like spines(脊椎) found behind its eyes and makes it one of the hardiest of all shark species. What makes it unique is that as its enemy attempts to swallow it, the spines on its back will stick into the enemy’s mouth and give a good chance for it to get away.

The horn shark is brown in color with black spots all over its body. The adults can reach up to a length of 4 feet and weigh up to 10 kg. An interesting fact about the horn shark is that it has five gills(鳃). The horn shark is a clumsy swimmer using its flexible pectoral fins(胸 鳍)to push itself along the bottom of the ocean. The maximum distance that has ever been recorded for a horn shark to have traveled out from its habitat is 10 miles.

Today, as so little is known about its population off the Californian coast, they have been listed as being “Data Deficient” in the World Conservation Union. The horn shark is being threatened both by water pollution and commercial fishing in the area. Though they are not among those sea creatures hunted primarily for food, but they often get caught as a by-catch in fishing expeditions.

【小题 1】The horn shark gets its name for______. A. its small size B. its large eyes

C. its two large spines

D. its brown color with spots

【小题 2】How is paragraph 3 mainly developed? A. By giving descriptions B. By following time order

C. By analyzing causes

D. By making comparisons

【小题 3】Which factors contribute to the horn shark’s being on the “Data Deficient” list?

It wasn‘t the store I normally go to, just one I passed along the way. As I walked up to the entrance, I noticed a man and a boy who was about 10 or 12 years old standing at the front of the store. Customers walked past, as the man handed them half-sheets of white paper. I walked up to them with curiosity, wondering what cause they were representing.

I said hello and the man greeted me and handed me one of the pieces of paper, explaining that they were collecting donations for the local food pantry. On the paper was a simple list of food items: peanut butter, noodles, pasta sauce, canned fruits and vegetables. It also included a short story about the boy and his efforts to collect food donations since the age of 8. I was really touched that someone so young would be so interested in helping others. I told him it was an awesome idea and that he should be proud of himself. He smiled. Then, I went inside to get my drink. Unfortunately, the store didn‘t have it in stock. But, I wasn‘t upset, because by then I felt I had another mission. I went through the store, picking things from the list, then brought them back out to the boy and put them in the cart. I also gave the man the white sheet of paper back to reuse for another customer. They thanked me and offered me a treat (candy, I think) but I said to pass it on to someone else. As I walked back to my car, the boy‘s well-intentioned spirit stuck with me. How inspiring to encounter a young boy with a resolve to do good deeds, and the courage to act on it. It made my day! 【小题 1】59. What do we know from the passage? A. The author wasn‘t a regular customer to the store. B. The store was owned by the man and the boy. C. The store didn‘t deal in drinks. D.

【2014 届湖北省荆门市龙泉中学月考】A One evening I went out and left my 17-year-old son in charge of his 8-year-old brother and 4-year-old sister. On this occasion, the work was made less troublesome by the presence of his girlfriend. I left with complete confidence that the older children would do a wonderful job of babysitting the younger children and the younger children would do a wonderful job of accompanying the older ones. Later, I discovered that complete confidence was the last thing I should have left home with. I had decided to return home earlier than planned so that my son and his girlfriend could go out. I called home with this happy news. But instead of hearing his cheerful, grateful voice on the other end of the line, all I heard was the sound of a telephone ringing. It was, I should point out, after 10 p.m., when the two younger children should have been in bed, and when the two older children should have been answering the phone. ―I‘ll give him a lesson,‖ I said. I decided they must be outside. Why they might be outside at 10:30 on a wintry night I had no idea, but it was the only explanation I could come up with.

Finally, in desperation, I called his girlfriend‘s house. After what seemed like countless rings, his girlfriend answered. ―Yes,‖ she said brightly, ―He‘s right here.‖ He came on the phone. I was not my usual calm, rational(理智的) self. After all, one of the rules of survival for modern parents is that you can‘t trust modern teenagers. ―Where are the children?‖ I said. He said they were with him. They had done nothing wrong. My son had taken the younger children over to his girlfriend‘s house just for ice cream and cake. This was too good to be believed. Well, it turns out that I shouldn‘t have believed it. It was only part of the truth. The following Saturday evening we were at my parents‘ home, celebrating my birthday. My oldest son gave me the children‘s gifts. Mounted and framed were a series of lovely color photographs of my children, dressed in their best clothes, and wearing their most wonderful expressions.

examination. However, in Canada and the United States, it is easy to go to university, and anyone who wants to go can go.As a result, Asian parents decide to leave their countries so that their children can go to university. The problem is that when Asians arrive, they discover that finding a job and making money are more difficult in the West than in the East.Also, they find that they are very lonely, and that they miss their homes.Because of these two reasons, most Asian parents decide to go back to work while their children study in the West. Therefore, these children become ―satellite kids‖, and most of their parents do not know how sad it is to be a ―satellite kid‖. Only until now are Canadians and Americans discovering the ―satellite kid‖ problem.Because these children do not speak English and because their parents are not there to take care of them, they are often absent from school.To be a ―satellite kid‖ means to grow up in a country where you know you are different and where you cannot make friends because you do not speak English well.Also, it means to grow up lonely, because your parents are elsewhere.What these ―satellite kids‖ will probably say to their parents is that it‘s better to have parents around than to have a university education. 【小题 1】Some Asian parents send their kids abroad because ________. A. they hope their children may easily find a job there B. the kids may not be accepted by universities in their own countries C. all foreign universities are better than the ones in their own countries D. the kids want to improve their English and make foreign friends 【小题 2】 ―Satellite kids‖ refer to Asian kids ________. A. without patents B. living abroad alone C. with university education D. speaking no English 【小题 3】Some Asian immigrant children become ―satellite kids‖ because their parents ______.

The event was swimming and started with only three men on the blocks.For one reason or another, two of them false started, so they were disqualified.That left only one to complete.It would have been difficult enough, not having anyone to race against, even though the time on the clock is important. I watched the man dive off the block and knew right away that something was wrong.I'm not an expert swimmer, but I can tell a good dive from a poor one, and this was not exactly medal quality.When he resurfaced, it was evident that the man was not out for gold — his arms were waving in an attempt at freestyle.The crowd started to laugh.Clearly this man was not a medal competitor. I listened to the crowd begin to laugh at this poor man who was clearly having a hard time.Finally he made his turn to start back.It was pitiful.He made a few desperate strokes and you could tell he was worn out. But in those few awful strokes, the crowd had changed. No longer were they laughing, but beginning to cheer.Some even began to stand and shout ―Come on, you can do it!‖ and he did. A clear minute past the average swimmer, this young man finally finished his race.The crowd went wild. You would have thought that he had won the gold, and he should have. Even though he was recorded one of the slowest times in Olympic history, this man gave more heart than any of the other competitors. Just a short year ago, he had never even swum, let alone race.His country had been invited to Sydney. In a competition where athletes remove their silver medals feeling they have somehow been cheated out of gold, or when they act so proudly in front of their competitors, it is nice to watch an underdog. 【小题 1】 From the passage we can learn that the young man ________.

Shakespeare, more perhaps than any other writer, made full use of the greatest resources of the English Language.Most of us use about five thousand words in our normal employment of English; Shakespeare in his works used about twenty-five thousand! There is probably no better way for a foreigner to appreciate the richness and variety of the English language than by studying the various ways in which Shakespeare uses it.Such a study is well worth the effort, even though some aspects of English usage, and the meaning of many words, have changed since Shakespeare‘s day. However, it is surprising that we should know comparatively little about the life of the greatest English author.We know that Shakespeare was born in 1564 in Stratford-on-Avon, and that he died there in 1616.He almost certainly attended the Grammar School in the town, but of this we cannot be sure.We know he was married there in 1582 to Anne Hathaway and that he had three children. know that he spent much of his life in We London writing his masterpieces.But this is almost all that we do know. However, what is important about Shakespeare‘s life is not its incidental details but its products, the plays and the poems.For many years scholars have been trying to add a few facts about Shakespeare‘s life to the small number we already possess and for an equally long time critics have been theorizing about the plays.Sometimes, indeed, it seems that the poetry of Shakespeare will disappear under the great mass of comment that has been written upon it. Fortunately this is not likely to happen.Shakespeare‘s people have long delighted not just the English but lovers of literature everywhere, and will continue to do so after the scholars and critics and all their works have been forgotten. 【小题 1】This passage is about A. the great length of each chapter B. the great varieties in writing styles C. the richness of the content in Shakespeare‘s works D. the rich English language used by Shakespeare in his works 【小题 2】 According to the writer, which of the following remains uncertain about Shakespeare? A. His date of birth. B. His marriage. C. His life in the Grammar School. D. His date of death. 【小题 3】It can be inferred from Para 3 that

That‘s because job growth numbers don‘t matter to job hunters as much as job turnover data. After all, existing jobs open up every day due to promotions, resignations, terminations, and retirements. (Yes, people are retiring even in this economy.) In both good times and bad, turnover creates more openings than economic growth does. Even in June of 2007, when the economy was still humming along, job growth was only 132,000, while turnover was 4.7 million! And as it turns out, even today — with job growth near zero — over 4 million job hunters are being hired every month. I don‘t mean to imply that overall job growth doesn‘t have an impact on one‘s ability to land a job. It‘s true that if total employment were higher, it would mean more jobs for all of us to choose from (and compete for). And it‘s true that there are currently more people applying for each available job opening, regardless of whether it‘s a new one or not. But what often distinguishes those who land jobs from those who don‘t is their ability to stay motivated. They‘re willing to do the hard work of identifying their valuable skills; be creative about where and how to look; learn how to present themselves to potential employers; and keep going, even after repeated rejections. The Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that 2.7 million people who wanted and were available for work hadn‘t looked within the last four weeks and were no longer even classified as unemployed. So don‘t let the headlines fool you into giving up. Four million people get hired every month in the U.S. You can be one of them. 【小题1】56. The author tends to believe that high unemployment rate ______? A) deprives many people of job opportunities. B) prevents many people from changing careers. C) should not stop people from looking for a job. D) does not mean the U.S. economy is worsening. 【小题2】57. Where do most job openings come from?

However, bridge building experts throughout the world thought this was an impossible feat and told Roebling to forget the idea, but Roebling could not ignore the vision he had in his mind of this bridge. After much discussion and persuasion he managed to convince his son Washington, an up and coming engineer, that the bridge in fact could be built. The project started well, but when it was only a few months underway a tragic accident on the site took the life of John Roebling. Washington was injured and left with a certain amount of brain damage, which resulted in him not being able to walk or talk or even move. "We told them so." "Crazy men and their crazy dreams.'' "It's foolish to chase wild visions." Evcryone had a negative comment to make and felt that the project should be scrapped since the Roeblings were the only ones who knew how the bridge could be built. In spite of his handicap, Washington was never discouraged. One day he was lying on his bed in hospital, seeing the sky and the tops of the trees outside for just a moment with the sunlight streaming through the windows, and a gentle breeze bowing the flimsy white curtains apart when an idea hit him.

【2014 届陕西 汉中洋县实验中学高三第一次月考】A China is a land of bicycles. At least it was back in 1992 when I traveled the country. Back then everyone seemed to be riding a bicycle. Millions of them, all black. Cars were rare. Yet since my arrival in Beijing last year, I‘ve found the opposite is true. There are millions of cars. However, people still use their bicycles to get around. For many, it‘s the easiest and cheapest way to travel today. Bicycles also come in different colors---sivler, green, red, blue, yellow, whatever you want. It‘s fun watching people biking. They rush quickly through crossroads, move skillfully through traffic, and ride even on sidewalks(人行道). Bicycles allow people the freedom to move about that cars just can‘t provide. Eager to be part of this aspect of Chinese culture, I decided to buy a bicycle. Great weather accompanied my

great buy. I immediately jumped up on my bicycle seat and started home. My first ride home was orderly (守秩序的). To be safe, I stayed with a ―pack‖ of bikers while cars on the streets came running swiftly out of nowhere at times. I didn‘t want to get hit. So I took the ride carefully. Crossing the streets was the biggest problem. It was a lot like crossing a major highway back in the United States. The streets here were wide, so crossing took time, skill and a little bit of luck. I finally made it home. The feeling on the bicycle was amazing. The air hitting my face and going through my hair was wonderful. I was sitting on top of the world as I passed by places and people. Biking made me feel alive. 【小题 1】 According to the author, why are bicycles still popular in China today? A. Because they are traditional and safe. B.Because they are convenient and inexpensive. C.

【2013 届天 津市红桥区高三第二次模拟】B At the age of sixteen, I joined a volunteer group with my dad.I went on my first volunteer project in West Virginia. the night we arrived, we discovered that "our family" was living in a trailer On (活动房车) that was in poor conditions.A crew had been wolfing on it for two weeks, but every time they finished one problem, another surfaced. We decided the only reasonable solution was to bridle a new house – something unusual but necessary under these circumstances.The family was overjoyed with their new house that was twenty by thirty feet with three bedrooms, a bath and a kitchen. On Tuesday of that week, while we ate lunch together, I asked the family's three boys, Josh, Eric and Ryan, "What do you want for your new room?" Expecting toys and other gadgets that children suavity ask for, we were astonished when Josh responded, "I just want a bed." The boys had never slept in a bed! They were accustomed to plastic mats.That night we had a meeting and

decided that beds would be the perfect gift.On Thursday night, a few adults in our group drove to the nearest city and bought beds and new bedding. When we saw the delivery truck coming, we told the family about the surprise.We could hardly contain ourselves. It was like watching excited children on Christmas morning. That afternoon, as we fitted the frames of the beds together, Eric ran into the house to watch us.Too dirty to enter his room, he observed with wide-eyed enthusiasm from the doorway. As my father slipped a pillowcase onto one of the pillows, Eric asked, "What is that?" "A pillow," he replied. "What do you do with it?" Eric continued to ask "When you go to sleep, you put your head on it," I answered softly.Tears came to my eyes as my father handed Eric the pillow. "Oh..that's soft," he said, hugging it tightly. . Now, when my sister or I start to ask for something that seems urgent, my dad gently asks, "Do you have a pillow?" We know exactly what he means. 【小题 1】The author's first volunteer project was A.working on a poor trailer C.donating beds and bedding . B.helping a poor family D.dealing with a housing problem .

This can‘t be happening to me. Then I felt the gun, cold, against my head, and I heard my friend Jeremy saying, ―What do you want? Take my wallet,‖ but at the time I thought of nothing. I remember being a little annoyed when the gunman pulled me from the car by the hair. I remember the walk to the house --- Jeremy, me, the two men with two guns. I remember the fear and anger in the gunmen‘s voices because Jeremy was being slow, and I remember wondering why he was being slow. I did not realize that Jeremy had thrown the keys into the bush. But I remember that sound of the gun hitting Jeremy‘s head and the feeling as the man who had hold of my hair released me. And I remember the split second when I realized he was looking at Jeremy, and I remember wondering how far I could run before he pulled the trigger. But I was already running, and upon reaching the car across the street, I didn‘t crouch(蹲伏) behind it but screamed instead. I remember thinking there was something ridiculous and illogical about screaming ―Help, help!‖ at eight o‘clock on a Tuesday evening in December and changing my plea(恳求) to the more specific ―Help, let me in, please let me in!‖ But the houses were cold, closed, unfriendly, and I ran on until I heard Jeremy‘s screams behind me announcing that our attackers had fled. The neighbors who had not opened their doors to us came out with baseball bats and helped Jeremy find his glasses and keys. In a group they were very brave. We waited for the police to come until someone said to someone else that the noodles were getting cold, and I said politely, ―Please go and eat. We‘re O.K.‖ I was happy to see them go. They had been talking of stricter sentences for criminals, of bringing back the death penalty(处罚) and how the President is going to clean up the country. I was thinking, they could be saying all of this over my dead body, and I still feel that stiffer sentences wouldn‘t change a thing. In a rush all the anger I should have felt for my attackers was directed against these contented people standing in front of their warm, comfortable homes talking about all the guns they were going to buy. What good would guns have been to Jeremy and me? People all over the neighborhood had called to report our screams, and the police turned out in force twenty minutes later. They were ill-tempered about what was, to them, much trouble about nothing. After all, Jeremy was hardly hurt, and we were hopeless when it came to describing the gunmen. ―Typical,‖ said one policeman when we couldn‘t even agree on how tall the men were. Both of us were able to describe the guns in horrifying detail, but the two policemen who stayed to make the report didn‘t think that would be much help. The policemen were matter-of-fact about the whole thing. The thin one said, ―That was a stupid thing to do, throwing away the keys. When a man has a gun against your head you do what you‘re told.‖ Jeremy looked properly embarrassed.

Then the fat policeman came up and the thin one went to look around the outside of the house. ―That was the best thing you could have done, throwing away the keys,‖ he said. ―If you had gone into the house with them…‖ His voice became weaker. ―They would have hurt her‖ --- he twisted his head toward me – ―and killed you both.‖ Jeremy looked happier. ―Look,‖ said the fat policeman kindly, ―there‘s no right or wrong in the situation. There‘s just luck.‖ All that sleepless night I replayed the moment those black gloves came up to the car window. How long did the whole thing last? Three minutes, five, eight? No matter how many hours of my life I may spend reliving it, I know there is no way to prepare for the next time --- no intelligent response to a gun. The fat cop was right. There‘s only luck. The next time I might end up dead. And I‘m sure there will be a next time. It can happen anywhere, anytime, to anyone. Security is an illusion(幻觉); there is no safety in locks or in guns. Guns make some people feel safe and some people feel strong, but they‘re fooling themselves. 【小题 1】 When the writer saw the gun pointing against the car window, ______. A. she felt very annoyed C. she felt very much nervous B. she lost consciousness D. she lost the power of thinking

【小题 2】What most possibly drove the two gunmen away? A. Jeremy‘s fighting C. Their neighbour‘s brave action B. The author‘s screaming D. The police‘s arrival

The program includes an academic part as well as

specific plans for supporting the overall development of the participants. Among the Boys uses painting as an instrument for helping boys examine their world, discuss it, and develop positive ways of handling the challenges they face daily. Young men present personal challenges to the group, such as a recent fight or the long-term drug abuse they observe in their neighborhood. After guided discussion, the youth work as a team, determining how to best represent the issue at hand in a painting. The resulting paintings and explanations of these paintings provided by the young people suggest that something profound(深远的) occurs through this process. These young men are learning a healthy way to express and cope with the pain and suffering they feel. Art serves as a healing process and a structured method of teaching teamwork, nonviolent values, conflict handling and problem-solving skills. Activities in Among the Boys are in agreement with the best practices in the prevention of high-risk behavior. First, community-based youth development programs are considered important parts of a comprehensive prevention method, particularly in high-risk neighborhoods. Second, compensatory(补偿) education that targets at risk youth for academic failure is also considered an effective prevention method. Third, interventions(介入) aimed at improving youth‘s moral reasoning, social problem-solving, and thinking skills are reported to be effective methods for reducing violence in high-risk populations, especially when carried out with elementary school-aged boys. Finally, Among the Boys has an adapted tutoring part, considered an effective prevention tool. Tutoring is typically a one-to-one match between a tutor and a youth, but Among the Boys employs what is referred to as ―group tutoring.‖ Among the Boys makes up for its high student-tutor ratio(比例) with quality and quantity of time, as the program meets after school, on Saturdays, and all day during the summer, and is staffed primarily by males, an unusual quality among educational programs. Among the Boys is rare and successful form of grassroots program, and represents the dream of a successful male who grew up in the Highland Park neighborhood and has returned to make a valuable contribution to his community. 【小题1】Which of the following most accurately describes the organization of the second paragraph? A. A theory is presented and proved with data. B. A statement is made and supported with examples. C. A problem is put forward and solutions are suggested D. A situation is described and a prediction is provided 【小题2】 Which of the following statements is implied in the passage? A. Art programs can promote painting but cannot prevent school failure. B. Social problem-solving skills are not important for high school-age youth.

Fifty years ago, they were the latest thing in educational reform: big, modern high schools outside the cities with thousands of students. Big schools meant economic efficiency, a greater choice of courses, and better football teams. But only years later did we understand that it involved the difficulty of strengthening personal connections between teachers and students. SAT scores began dropping; on average, 30% of students did not complete high school in four years, a figure that rose to 50% in poor city neighborhoods. High schools for a variety of reasons seemed to have made little progress. Size isn‘t everything, but it does matter, and the past decade has seen a noticeable trend toward smaller schools. This has been partly due to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which has invested $1.8 billion in American high schools, helping to open about 1,000 small schools — most of them with about 400 kids, each with an average enrollment of only 150 students per grade. About 500 more are on the drawing board. Districts all over the country are taking notice, along with mayors in cities like New York, Chicago and San Diego. And most noticeable of all, there is the phenomenon of large urban and suburban high schools that have split up into smaller units of a few hundred. Hillsdale High School in San Mateo, California, is one of those ranking No.423 — among the top 2% in the country. In 2003, Hillsdale remade itself into three ―houses‖. 300 students arriving ninth graders are randomly assigned to one of the houses, where they will keep the same four core subject teachers for two years before moving on to another for 11th and 12th grades. Teachers meet with students in groups of 25, five mornings a week, for open-ended discussions of everything from homework problems to bad Saturday-night dates. The advisers also meet with students privately and stay in touch with parents. Along with the new structure came the percentage of freshmen taking biology jumped from 17 to 95.‖It was rough for some. But by senior year, two-thirds have moved up to physics,‖ says Jeff Gilbert. ―Our kids are coming to school in part because they know there are adults here who know them and care for them.‖ But not all schools show advances after downsizing, and it remains to be seen whether smaller schools will be a cure-all solution. Ranking schools is always controversial. Over the years this system has been criticized for its simplicity — list of top U.S. high schools was made merely according to the proportion of students taking college-level exams. This year a group of 38 superintendents (地区教育主管) from five states wrote to ask that their schools should be excluded from the calculation. ―It is impossible to know which high schools are ?the best‘ in the nation,‖ their letter read. ―Determining whether different schools do or don‘t offer a high quality of education requires a look at

【2013 届浙江 桐乡市高三模拟】D I was watching some little kids play soccer. These kids were only five or six years old, but they were playing a real game — a serious game — two teams, complete with coaches, uniforms, and parents. I didn‘t know any of them, so I was able to enjoy the game without the distraction of being anxious about winning or losing. The teams were pretty evenly matched. I will just call them Team One and Team Two. Nobody scored in the first period. Then came the second quarter. The Team One coach pulled out what must have been his first team

and put in the scrubs(替补队员), except for his best player who now guarded the goal. The game took a dramatic turn. I guess winning is important even when you‘re five years old — because the Team Two coach left his best players in, and the Team One scrubs were no match for them. Team Two packed around the little guy who was now the Team One goalkeeper. He was an outstanding athlete, but he was no match for three or four who were also very good. Team Two began to score. The lone goalkeeper gave it everything he had, desperately throwing his body in front of incoming balls, trying bravely to stop them. Team Two scored two goals in quick succession. It angered the young boy. He became a raging maniac — shouting, running, diving. With all the strength he could gather, he covered the boy who now had the ball, but that boy kicked it to another boy twenty feet away, and by the time he repositioned himself, it was too late — they scored a third goal. I soon learned who the goalkeeper‘s parents were. They were nice, decent-looking people. I could tell that his dad had just come from the office — he still had his suit and tie on. They yelled encouragement to their son. I became totally absorbed, watching the boy on the field and his parents on the sidelines. After the third goal, the little kid changed. He didn‘t quit, but he became quietly desperate and futility was written all over him. His father changed, too. He had been urging his son to try harder — yelling advice and encouragement. But then he became anxious. He tried to say that it was okay — to hang in there. He sorrowed for the pain his son was feeling. After the fourth goal, I knew what was going to happen. The little boy fetched the ball from the net and handed it to the referee(裁判). He just stood there while huge tears rolled down both cheeks. He went to his knees, and he cried the tears of the helpless and brokenhearted. At that moment, I saw the father start onto the field. His wife seized his arm and said, ―Jim, don‘t. You‘ll embarrass him.‖ But he tore loose from her and ran onto the field. Suit, tie, dress shoe, and all — he charged onto the field, and he picked up his son so everybody would know that this was his boy, and he hugged him and held him and cried with him. I‘ve never been so proud of a man in my life. He carried him off the field, and when he got close to the sidelines I heard him say, ―Scotty, I‘m so proud of you. You were great out there. I want everybody to know that you are my son.‖ ―Daddy,‖ the boy sobbed. ―I couldn‘t stop them. I tried, Daddy, but they scored on me.‖ ―Scotty, it doesn‘t matter how many times they scored on you. You‘re my son, and I‘m proud of you. I want you to go back there and finish the game. I know you want to quit, but you can‘t. And, son, you‘re going to get scored on again, but it doesn‘t matter. In my eyes, you are the winner! Go on, now.‖

【2013 届浙江 桐乡市高三模拟】A This Christmas, maybe different from previous years, a strong desire drives me to make my own Christmas gifts. Honestly speaking, I‘ve promised myself this more than once. As a crafter (工匠), I‘ve frequently thought I am supposed to turn it into action. However, this year I really plan to stick to it. It‘s partly because I run short of money. More importantly, I‘ve recently returned from an inspiring trip around Britain, collecting some information about crafting for BBC‘s Newsnight. Actually I planned the trip couples of months ago. The idea of traveling the country — making things as I went, meeting artists and craftspeople — sounded perfect to spend the summer. I‘d pack a tent and a sewing machine and I‘d set off. But by the time I determined my plans and hit the road, leaves made a sighing sound under foot. It seemed crazy to camp with winter on the way; Luckily, Newsnight viewers offered me accommodations in return for help with a craft task. My tasks ranged from sewing worn-out clothes to making trousers. Textile students in Harpenden offered to pay for my petrol in return for a talk about hats. In Derby, Amy needed help to change an old pair of curtains. I was really struck by people‘s increasing enthusiasm for making things. When I asked some people if they could sew, only a few raised their hands. But when I asked who wanted to learn, nearly everyone responded positively, hoping to learn something practical. Craft is definitely popular at the moment. But besides fashion, we‘re learning to appreciate effort and quality again. Perhaps once people rediscover the pleasure to be gained from making something unique, it may stick. Sue is director of quilts at the V&A, where next spring she‘ll be putting on the museum‘s first major quilting exhibition. Sue believes the return to crafting is related to how we rethink ourselves. ―People, especially women, are beginning to think about the way they live their lives.
