第一节(共15小题;每小题2分,满分30分)

A

My students often tell me that they don’t have “enough time” to do all their schoolwork.

My reply is often a brief “You have as much time as the president.” I usually carry on a bit about there being twenty-four hours in the day for everyone, and suggest that “not enough time” is not an acceptable explanation of not getting something done.

Once in graduate school(研究院), I tried to prove to one of my professors by saying that I was working hard. His answer to me was, “That’s irrelevant(不相关的). What’s important is the quality of your work.” Since then I have. had time to think carefully about the “hard worker” dodge (诀窍) , and I have come to some conclusions—all relevant to the problem of how much time we have.

If you analyze(分析) the matter, you can identify two parts of the problem: There is, of course, the matter of “time”, which we can think of as fixed. Then there is the problem of “work” during that time. But, as my professor suggested, it’s not how hard one works but the quality of the product that’s important.

That led me to a new idea: the quality of the work. That concept is perhaps best explained by a sign I once saw on the wall in someone’s office: “Don’t work harder. Work smarter.” There is a lot of sense in that idea.

If you can’t get more time, and few of us can, the only solution is to improve the quality of the work. That means thinking of ways to get more out of the same time than we might otherwise get. That should lead us to an analysis of our work habits. Since “work” for students usually means “homework”, the expression “work habits” should be read as “study habits”.

Then, as a smart student, you will seek to improve those skills that you use in study, chiefly reading and writing. If you learn to read better and write better, there are big benefits that pay off in all your studies.

21. From the passage, we know that the author is probably _______ .

A. an educator    B. a poet      C. a novelist     D. an engineer

22. We can infer from the second paragraph that we students still _______ .

A. can meet the president         B. have enough time

C. can get everything done well      D. should accept the explanation

23. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?

A. The author’s students make good use of their time to do all their homework.

B. The author tried to tell the professor that he/she (author) had done a good job.

C. You’ll try to improve your skills in reading and writing if you’re a clever student.

D. You can’t improve the quality of the work if you can’t get more time.

24. What’s the passage mainly about?

A. Don’t work harder; work smarter.

B. Students don’t have enough time.

C. No one can get more time.

D. Read better and write better.

B

Before the 1970s, in southwestern Virginia, there was only one high school in Roanoke, where the students were 100% black. This was Lucy Addison High School, named after Virginian educator Lucy Addison.

Lucy Addison grew up on a farm, which her father purchased after the Civil War. She attended a private school in Philadelphia, where the teaching staff are all black people. Miss Addison graduated in 1882 with a teaching diploma(文凭). Lucy Addison first taught in Loudoun County. Four years later, in 1886, she moved to Roanoke where she taught at the First Ward Colored School. In January 1887, Miss Addison was named as temporary principal(临时校长). A larger school building was made available in 1888. At this time, Miss Addison was named as an assistant principal.

For the next thirty years, she was an inspiration(鼓舞人的人) to generations of African American students. In 1918, Addison became principal of the new Harrison School, which only had classes from Grade One to Grade Eight. High school diplomas were unavailable during this time for black students in Roanoke. By gradually introducing new courses, Miss Addison eventually developed a full high-school curriculum in her school. Her hard work was recognized in 1924 by The State Board of Education(州教育委员会). Addison, who never married or had children, retired at the end of the 1926~1927 school year. In January 1928, the Roanoke City School Board announced that a new high school for African American students would be named in honor of Miss Lucy Addison. The official opening of Lucy Addison High School was on April 19, 1929, with Miss Addison in attendance.

In 2011, a play about the life and times of Lucy Addison was performed and got good reviews. Lucy made her mark in life as an educator and received an honor that no citizen of Roanoke had. She left so many legacies(遗产). She is not just a pioneer for education but a heroine(女英雄).

25. When did Lucy Addison start her teaching career?

A. In 1882.     B. In 1886.     C. In 1887.     D. In 1888.

26. What does the underlined word “curriculum” in Paragraph 3 probably mean?

A. Some life arrangements.      B. Activities in a school.

C. All the courses of study.      D. Work plans in a school year.

27. The high school was named after Lucy Addison to honor her because she ______ .

A. tried her best to start education for the black

B. had devoted all her life to education

C. became principal of the new high school

D. turned to be the only black teacher and taught long

28. How is this text mainly developed?

A. By giving explanations.      B. By giving examples.

C. By following time order.       D. By making comparisons(比较).
