We once had a poster competition in our fifth grade art class.
“You could win prizes,” our teacher told us as she wrote the poster information on the blackboard. She passed out sheets of construction paper while continuing, “The first prize is ten dollars. You just have to make sure that the words on the blackboard appear somewhere on your poster.”
We studied the board critically. Some of us looked with one eye and held up certain colors against the blackboard, rocking the sheets to the right or left while we conjured up our designs. Others twisted their hair around their fingers or chewed their erasers while deep in thought. We had plans for that tendollar grand prize，each and every one of us. Im going to spend mine on candies，one hopeful would announce，while another practiced looking serious，wise and rich.
Everyone in the class made a poster. Some of us used parts of those fancy paper napkins, while others used nothing but colored construction paper. Some of us used big designs, and some of us preferred to gather our art tidily down in one corner of our poster and let the space draw the viewers attention to it. Some of us would wander past the good students desks and then return to our own projects with a growing sense of hopelessness. It was yet another grownup trick of the soil they seemed especially fond of making all of us believe we had a fair chance，and then always—always—rewarding the same old winners.
I believe I drew a sailboat，but I cant say that with any certainty. I made it. I admired it. I determined it to be the very best of all of the posters I had seen，and then I turned it in.
No one came along to give me the grand prize，and then someone distracted me，and I probably never would have thought about that poster again.
I was still sitting at my desk，thinking，What poster? When the teacher gave me an envelope with a tendollar bill in it and everyone in the class applauded for me.
()1.What was the teachers requirement for the poster?
A.It must appear in time.
B.It must be done in class.
C.It must be done on a construction sheet.
D.It must include the words on the blackboard.

D.began to play games
()4.After seeing the good students designs，some students .
A.loved their own designs more
B.thought they had a fair chance
C.put their own designs in a corner

A.enjoyed grownup tricks very much
B.loved poster competitions very much

In bringing up children, every parent watches eagerly the childs acquisition(学会)of each new skill—the first spoken words, the first independent steps, or the beginning of reading and writing. It is often tempting to hurry the child beyond his natural learning rate, but this can set up dangerous feelings of failure and states of worry in the child. This might happen at any stage. A baby might be forced to use a toilet too early; a young child might be encouraged to learn to read before he knows the meaning of the words he reads. On the other hand, though, if a child is left alone too much, or without any learning opportunities, he loses his natural enthusiasm for life and his desire to find out new things for himself.
Parents vary greatly in their degree of strictness towards their children. Some may be especially strict in money matters. Others are strict over times of coming home at night or punctuality for meals. In general, the controls imposed represent the needs of the parents and the values of the community as much as the childs own happiness.
As regards the development of moral standards in the growing child, consistency is very important in parental teaching. To forbid a thing one day and excuse it the next is no foundation for morality(道德). Also, parents should realize that “example is better than precept”. If they are not sincere and do not practise what they preach(说教), their children may grow confused, and emotionally insecure when they grow old enough to think for themselves, and realize they have been to some extent fooled.
A sudden awareness of a marked difference between their parents principles and their morals can be a dangerous disappointment.
()6.Eagerly watching the childs acquisition of new skills .
A.should be avoided
B.is universal among parents
C.sets up dangerous states of worry in the child
D.will make him lose interest in learning new things
()7.In the process of childrens learning new skills, parents .
A.should encourage them to read before they know the meaning of the words they read
B.should not expect too much of them
C.should achieve a balance between pushing them too hard and leaving them on their own
D.should create as many learning opportunities as possible
()8.The second paragraph mainly tells us that .
A.parents should be strict with their children
B.parental controls reflect only the needs of the parents and the values of the community
C.parental restrictions vary, and are not always enforced for the benefit of the children alone
D.parents vary in their strictness towards their children according to the situation
()9.The word “precept” (Line 3, Para.3) probably means “”.
()10.In moral matters, parents should .
A.observe the rules themselves
B.be aware of the marked difference between adults and children
C.forbid things which have no foundation in morality
D.consistently ensure the security of their children

Directions: Translate the following passage into Chinese.
Yet few people ask from books what books can give us. Most commonly we come to books with blurred and divided minds, asking of fiction that it shall be true, of poetry that it shall be false, of biography that it shall be flattering, of history that it shall enforce our own prejudices. If we could banish all such preconceptions when we read, that would be an admirable beginning. Do not dictate to your author; try to become him. Be his fellowworker and accomplice. If you hang back, and reserve and criticize at first, you are preventing yourself from getting the fullest possible value from what you read. But if you open your mind as widely as possible, then signs and hints of almost imperceptible fineness, from the twist and turn of the first sentences, will bring you into the presence of a human being unlike any other. Steep yourself in this, acquaint yourself with this, and soon you will find that your author is giving you, or attempting to give you, something far more definite.
Directions: Write a composition of 120~150 words about a successful teaching experience.
