第一节  基础写作One possible version:

Dear Editor

     I’m writing to tell you about the discussion we’ve had about whether passengers who ride in a car driven by a drunken driver should be punished. The minority of the students hold the opinion that punishing the passengers helps to reduce traffic accidents and increase traffic safety. Not to ride in a car driven by a drunken driver is not only a responsible behavior for passengers themselves but also for the drivers and other people on the road.

    The majority of the students, however, disapprove of the idea, stating that it is difficult for common passengers to know whether the driver has been drinking or not. What’s more, even if the passenger knows the driver has drunk alcohol and has attempted to persuade the driver not to drive, it is unfair to punish  the passenger when the driver does not follow the advice. As far as I am concerned, punishing passengers as well as the drivers is not only unfair but is also hard to carry out.

                                                           Yours sincerely

第二节:读写任务One possible version:

In the passage the author, taking his own experience for an example, shows that honesty is one of the most important policies and good qualities for a student.

In most teachers’ and parents’ minds, a student with good qualities means being passionate, honest, responsible, determined, hard-working, and so on. Among dozens of good qualities, I totally agree with the author: honesty is the most essential qualities for a student.

Why should we students be honest? Firstly, being honest is one of Chinese traditional virtues that we should carry forward. At schools we are taught to be honest and never cheat others, especially never cheating in the exams. The high scores gained by cheating means nothing. Secondly, friendship, which plays an important part in our students life, is based on honesty. Seeing that the honest person is reliable, most of us are willing to make friends with them. Thirdly, honesty is very important for us to build a harmonious society. Without honesty, people would complain and suffer instead of respecting and trusting each other.

As a famous saying goes, “Honesty is the best policy”. Only in this way can we win respect from others and grow up healthily.

 

 

  Until the 1980s, the American homeless population comprised mainly older males. Today, homelessness strikes much younger part of society. In fact, a 25-city survey by the U. S. Conference of Mayors in 1987 found that families with children make up the fastest growing part of the homeless population. Many homeless children gather in inner cities; this transient(变化无常的) and frequently frightened student population creates additional problems — both legal and educational — for already overburdened urban school administrators and teachers.
  Estimates of the number of homeless Americans range from 350,000 to three million. Likewise, estimates of the number of homeless school children vary radically. A U.S. Department of Education report, based on state estimates, states that there are 220,000 homeless school-age children, about a third of whom do not attend school on a regular basis, But the National Coalition for the Homeless estimates that there are at least two times as many homeless children, and that less than half of them attend school regularly.
  One part of the homeless population that is particularly difficult to count consists of the “throwaway” youths who have been cast of their homes. The Elementary School Center in New York City estimates that there are 1.5 million of them, many of whom are not counted as children because they do not stay in family shelters and tend to live by themselves on the streets.
  Federal law, the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act of 1987, includes a section that addresses the educational needs of homeless children. The educational provisions of the McKinney Act are based on the belief that all homeless children have the right to a free, appropriate education.
  1. It is implied in the first paragraph that ____.
  A) the writer himself is homeless, even in his eighties
  B) many older homeless residents are going on strike in 25 cities
  C) there is a serious shortage of academic facilities
  D) homeless children are denied the opportunity of receiving free education

  2. The National Coalition for the homeless believes that the number of homeless children is _____.
  A) 350,000
  B) 1,500,000
  C) 440,000
  D) 110,000

  3. One part of the homeless population is difficult to estimate. The reason might well be ____.
  A) the homeless children are too young to be counted as children
  B) the homeless population is growing rapidly
  C) the homeless children usually stay outside school
  D) some homeless children are deserted by their families

  4. The McKinney Act is mentioned in this passage in order to show that ___.
  A) the educational problems of homeless children are being recognized
  B) the estimates on homeless children are hard to determine
  C) the address of grade-school children should be located
  D) all homeless people are entitled to free education

  5. The passage mainly deals with ____.
  A) the legal problems of the homeless children
  B) the educational problems of homeless children
  C) the social status of older males
  D) estimates on the homeless population


The story happened years agowhen my daughter was still little.

The lady told me that she and her husband wanted to see us safely back into our     8   . She explained that sometimes rest areas could be a  9   place for a young lady like me. She told me that she had a daughter almost my age, so they wanted to make sure that I got safely back on my way.

I was very touched by their  10 . Being young, and probably naive to the potential  11  of rest areas, it had never occurred to me that there was any possibility of something going wrong. I  12   them for their kindness. My daughter and I continued our journey and   13   our destination safely. K*s5$u

答案与解析:



C C D A B
  直到20世纪80年代,美国无家可归的人口主要包括的还是年龄较大的男性。现在,社会上年龄较小的一些人也面临无家可归的威胁。的确,美国市长会议在1987年对25个城市进行了一项调查,结果表明,在无家可归的人口中,儿童的增长比例是最快的。许多无家可归的儿童都聚集在城市的中心地带。其中学龄儿童四处流浪,饱受惊吓。这给已经负担考试大过重的城市教学和教学管理带来了许多额的外的麻烦,其中既涉及法律问题又涉及教育问题。
  美国无家可归的人口数量估计在35万到300万人之间。同样,无家可归的学龄儿童人数也无法做出准确的估计。一份根据各州估计数字而得出的美国教法的育部的报告指出,有22万无家可归的学龄儿童,其中约有三分之一没有按规定上学。然而国家关于无家可归人员的联盟会却估计,这样的儿童人数至少还应该多一倍,其中半数以上没有正常入学。
  有一部分无家可归的人口尤其难以统计,就是那些遭家庭遗弃的浪荡少年。据纽约小学中心估计,这样的人口有150万左右。其中还有许多小孩没有估计进去,因为这些小孩不呆在安全的家中,却往往独自在街头流浪。
  联邦法律(1987年斯图尔德B麦肯尼无家可归人员救助法案)有一部分专门指出了无家可归儿童的教育需要。法案中有关于教育的条款所.
