Supporters say that the new approach, called reader's workshop, helps develop a love for reading in students who are bored with classic literature. They argue that the best way to motivate students to read more is to offer them more choices. Not_all_educators_are_on_the_same_page,_however. They worry that students who choose trendy, less challenging titles over the classics won't be exposed to the great writing and key themes of important works of literature. Student reporters Donald and Sarah express their ideas about this new approach. Donald thinks that they should turn the page. Students should be allowed to select the books they read in English class. He says he and his classmates are allowed to pick their own books in class. That makes them more focused, and they look forward to class time. Tristin, a classmate of his at Clinton Middle School agrees. “I'm reading books that I want to read, which makes class more fun and interesting,” he says. Offering students a choice may also improve test scores. Studies by Professor John Guthrie of the University of Maryland found that students in grades 4 through 6 who had some choices in the books they read showed improved reading comprehension skills during testing. Giving students the chance to decide what they read helps build a lifelong love for reading. Isn't that what we want for our students? Sarah holds a different view. She thinks teachers know more about books than students do. When an English teacher assigns a book, he or she keeps in mind the reading level of most students in the class. Students who choose their own books might be cheating themselves by picking books that are not up to their reading level or that are too difficult. Furthermore, a whole class can discuss a book it reads together. That makes it easier for some kids to understand what they are reading. “The students wouldn't be able to hold a meaningful conversation if they were all reading different books,” says Kristin, an English teacher at Fleetwood Area Middle School. “If they read the same book, their conversations would be more indepth.” 16.What's the meaning of the underlined sentence “Not all educators are on the same page”? A.Educators have different opinions. B.Educators didn't appear at the same time. C.Educators wrote in different pages. D.Educators didn't agree with the author. 17.Donald thinks that the new approach could ________. A.help students be more focused in class B.draw students to reading classic novels C.make students less worried in English class D.encourage students to read more challenging books 18.Sarah thinks that the new approach might ________. A.help students improve reading comprehension skills B.help students hold meaningful conversations in class C.make some students read books not suitable for them D.make some students ignore the important works of literature 19.Who has the same attitude towards the new approach with Kristin? A.Donald. B.Sarah. C.Tristin. D.John Guthrie. 20.The author develops the text mainly by ________. A.listing cases B.making comparisons C.following time order

D.explaining causes and effects B Arthur Miller(1915-2005)is universally recognized as one of the greatest dramatists of the 20th century. Miller's father had moved to the USA from AustriaHungary,drawn like so many others by the “Great American Dream”. However, he experienced severe financial hardship when his family business was ruined in the Great Depression of the early 1930s. Miller's most famous play, Death of a Salesman, is a powerful attack on the American system,with its aggressive way of doing business and its insistence on money and social status as indicators of worth. In Willy Loman, the hero of the play, we see a man who has got into trouble with this system. Willy is “burnt out” and in the cruel world of business there is no room for sentiment: if he can't do the work, then he is no good to his employer, the Wagner Company, and he must go. Willy is painfully aware of this, and at a loss as to what to do with his lack of success. He refuses to face the fact that he has failed and kills himself in the end. When it was first staged in 1949,the play was greeted with enthusiastic reviews,and it won the Tony Award for Best Play,the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award,and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.It was the first play to win all three of these major awards. Miller died of heart failure at his home in Roxbury,Connecticut,on the evening of February 10, 2005,the 56th anniversary of the first performance of Death of a Salesman on Broadway. 21.Why did Arthur Miller's father move to the USA? A.He suffered from severe hunger in his home country. B.He was attracted by the “Great American Dream”. C.He hoped to make his son a dramatist. D.His family business failed. 22.The play Death of a Salesman ________. A.exposes the cruelty of the American business world B.discusses the ways to get promoted in a company C.talks about the business career of Arthur Miller D.focuses on the skills in doing business 23. What can we learn about Willy Loman? A.He treats his employer badly. B.He runs the Wagner Company. C.He is a victim of the American system. D.He is regarded as a hero by his colleagues. 24.After it was first staged, Death of a Salesman________. A.achieved huge success B.won the first Tony Award C.was warmly welcomed by salesmen D.was severely attacked by dramatists 25.What is the text mainly about? A.Arthur Miller and his family.
