As a teenager, you need to understand ___21___ is going on with your body, how to handle those changes, and how to start taking responsibility for your own health. Puberty(or adolescence)is a mysterious word. Upon pronunciation, it almost sounds embarrassed. But it is really nothing to be shy ___22___. After all, everyone goes through it. A young person may begin development at 8 years of age, while another may not show signs of development until fourteen or fifteen. Generally, girls tend ___23___(enter)puberty two years ahead of boys. For both sexes, puberty is usually complete by age eighteen. It is during these years ___24___ your voices deepen, pimples(粉刺)grow and many other physical changes happen.Your emotions also lose balance as you ride the wave of adolescence. For one, it ___25___ have something to do with your hormones; whereas for ___26___ it may come from your changing relationships with people ___27___(involve),or your ongoing pressure from peers. Puberty is important for all boys and girls, which may greatly influence personalities, particularly for girls. Research findings show that the adolescent girls ___28___(undergo)a significant drop in sell-confidence may feel ___29___(insecure)about their own judgment and emotions. Yet, they are usually reluctant to tell their parents and teachers about their feelings. Therefore, adolescent girls should be encouraged to discuss things with trusted adults to cope with such natural developmental difficulties ___30___ they meet with in their personal and school life. Good advice at the right time can lead to positive and productive results. Section B A. boom B. consuming C. change D. lightly E. disposable F. socially G. launched H. potential I. dreams J. poverty K. consciously Yawns are young and wealthy but normal. They are men and women in their 30s and 40s who have become multimillionaires and billionaires during the wealth ___31___ of the past decade.

The larger goal—to reduce ___40___. Ⅲ. Reading Comprehension Section A No woman can be too rich or too thin. This saying often attributed to the late Duchess of Windsor indicates much of the odd spirit of our times. Being thin is ___41___ such a virtue. The problem with such a view is that some people actually attempt to live by it. I myself have dreams of slipping into narrow designer clothes. ___42___, I have been on a diet for the better-or worse-part of my life. Being rich wouldn't be bad either, but that won't happen unless an unknown relative dies suddenly in some distant land, ___43___ me millions of dollars. Where did we go off the track? When did eating butter become a sin, and a little bit of extra flesh unappealing, if not repellent? All religions have certain days when people refrain from eating and excessive eating is one of Christianity's seven deadly sins. ___44___, until quite recently, most people had a problem getting enough to eat. In some religious groups, wealth was a ___45___ of high morals, and fatness a sign of wealth and well-being. Today the ___46___ is true. We have ___47___ to thinness as our new mark of virtue. The result is that being fat –or even only somewhat overweight-is bad because it implies a ___48___ of moral strength. Our obsession with thinness is also ___49___ by health concerns. It is true that in this country we have more ___50___ people than ever before, and that, in many cases, being overweight correlates with an increased risk of heart and blood vessel disease. These ___51___, however, may have as much to do with our way of life and our high-fat diets as with excess weight. And the associated risk of cancer in the digestive system may be more of a dietary problem--too much fat and a lack of fiber--than a weight problem. The real ___52___, then, is not what we weight too much, but that we neither exercise enough nor eat well. ___53___ is necessary for strong bones and both heart and lung health. A balanced diet without a lot of fat can also help the body avoid many diseases. We should surely stop paying so much attention to ___54___. Simply being thin is not enough. It is actually hazardous if those who get (or already are) thin think they are automatically healthy and thus ___55___ paying attention to their overall life-style. Thinness can be pure vain glory. 41. A. regarded B. treated C. considered D. thought 42. A. Consequently B. Unfortunately C. Unlikely D. Frequently 43. A. earning B. leaving C. making D. keeping 44.

A. free from B. worthy of C. accessible to D. contrary to Section B (A) How we look and how we appear to others probably worries us more when we are in our teens or early twenties than at any other time in our life. Few of us are content to accept ourselves as we are, and few are brave enough to ignore the trends of fashion. Most fashion magazines or TV advertisements try to persuade us that we should dress in a certain way or behave in a certain manner. If we do, they tell us we will be able to meet new people with confidence and deal with every situation confidently and without embarrassment. Changing fashion, of course, does not apply just to dress. A barber today does not cut a boy’s hair in the same way as he used to, and girls do not make up in the same way as their mothers and grandmothers did. The advertisers show us the latest fashionable styles and we arc constantly under pressure to follow the fashion in case our friends think we arc odd or dull. What causes fashions to change? Sometimes convenience or practical necessity or just the fancy of an influential person can establish a fashion. Take hats for example. In cold climates, early buildings were cold inside, so people wore hats indoors as well as outside. The late President Kennedy caused a depression in the American hat industry by not wearing hats: more American men followed his example. There is also a cyclical pattern in fashion. In the 1920s in Europe andAmerica, short skirts became fashionable. After World War Ⅱ, they dropped to ankle length. Then they got shorter and shorter and the miniskirt was in fashion. After a few more years, skirts became longer again. Today, society is much freer and easier than it used to be. It is no longer necessary to dress like everyone else. Within reason, you can dress as you tike or do your hair the way you like instead of the way you should because it is the fashion. The popularity of jeans and the "untidy" look seems to be a reaction against the increasingly expensive fashion of the top fashion houses. At the same time, appearance is still important in certain circumstances and then we must choose our clothes carefully. It would be foolish to go to an interview for a job in a law firm wearing jeans and a sweater; and it would be discourteous to visit some distinguished scholar looking as if we were going to the beach or a night clubs. However, you need never feel depressed if you don’t look like the latest fashion photo. Look around you and you’ll see that no one else does either! 56. Fashion magazines and TV advertisement seem to link fashion to _____. A. confidence in life B. social relationship C. success in career D. personal future 4 57. Present-day society is much freer and easier because it emphasizes _____. A. practicality B. efficiency C. informality D. individuality 58. The popularity of jeans and untidy look is possibly due to that they ______. A. highlight one’s personality B. are suitable for various social situations C. have the advantages of being convenient and practical D. are not as expensive as clothing produced by top fashion houses 59. What does the author most probably do with the latest fashion? A. The author may be brave enough to ignore the latest fashion. B. The author may follow the latest fashion most faithfully. C. The author may take jeans and untidy look as the latest fashion. D. The author may find the latest fashion increasingly expensive. 60. From the passage we can conclude that“Learning English Video Project!”is most probably ____. A. an online language learning course B. audio documents on language learning C. a series of short video programs D. a set of films on English-speaking countries 61. If someone is interested in the comparison between English and other languages, be might be interested to watch _____. A. Encounters in the UK B. Stories from Morocco C. Thoughts from Brazil D. Insights from China 62. What can we know about English learning in Sao Paulo, Brazil? A. Classroom teaching is more interactive and communicative. B. Homestay arrangement provides positive experience for learners. C. The Internet and games plays a major role in language learning. D. The principle of learning by doing is widely accepted by learners. (C) Google must be the most ambitious company in the world. Its stated goal, "to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful," deliberately omits the word "web" to indicate that the company is reaching for absolutely all information everywhere and in every form. From books to health records and videos, from your friendships to your click patterns and physical location, Google wants to know. To some people this sounds uplifting, with promises of free access to knowledge and help in managing our daily lives. To others, it is somewhat like another Big Brother, no less frightening than its totalitarian(极权主义的)ancestors for being in the private information. Randall Stross, a journalist at the New York Times, does a good job of analyzing this unbounded ambition in his book "Planet Google". One chapter is about the huge data centers that Google is building with a view to storing all that information, another about the sets of rules at the heart of its web search and advertising technology, another about its approach to information bound in books, its vision for geographical information and so forth. He is at his best when explaining how Google’s mission casually but fatally smashes into long-existing institutions such as, say, copyright law or privacy norms. 5 And yet, it’s puzzling that he mostly omits the most fascinating component of Google, its people. Google is what it is because of its two founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who see themselves as kindly elites and embody the limitless optimism about science, technology and human nature that is native to Silicon Valley. The world is perfectible, and they are the ones who will do much of the perfecting, provided you let them. Brin and Page set out to create a company and an entire culture in their image. From the start, they professed that they would innovate as much in managing—rewarding, feeding, motivating, entertaining and even transporting (via Wi-Fi-enabled free shuttle buses) their employees—as they do in internet technology. In reality Google’s are as prone to power struggle and office politics as anyone else. None of that makes it into Mr. Stross’ account, which at times reads like a diligent summary of news articles. At those moments, "Planet Google" takes a risk similar to trying to board a speeding train: the Google story changes so fast that no book can stay up to date for long. Even so, a sober description of this moment in Google’s quest is welcome. Especially since Google fully expects, as its chief executive, Eric Schmidt, says at the end of the book, to take 300 years completing it. 63. By describing Google as a Big Brother, people think that Google ____. A. is a pioneer in IT industry B. is an invader of privacy C. breaks its promise of free access D. overestimates its own influence 64. According to Randall Stross, Google’s influence on copyright law or privacy norm is _____. A. temporary B. unprecedented C. long-lasting D. unintentional 65. What do we know about the Google employees in essence? A. They compete against each other in the office. B. They are hard-working and talented. C. They appreciate the managing techniques. D. They feel encouraged by the company’s benefits. 66. What does the author imply by saying“Planet Google”takes a risk similar to trying to board a speeding train? A. Planet Google will be in danger if it stays up to date for long. B. Planet Google have to take 300 years to catch the speeding train. C. The board of Google welcomes Randall Stross to cover Google story. D. A written book can only cover a little part of the on-going technology. Section C I have heard that fluoride(氟化物)can help stop dental decay, but I recently read that it is poisonous. Which of these is true? How can children use fluoride safely? This question is answered 6 thanks to Dr Marcia M. Rich who practices general dentistry in Newholt. She is also a lecturer at the University and a writer for the monthly magazine Your Dentist Cares. My answer to the first question is to stress that fluoride works well and is safe when users follow instructions. Young children have a tendency to swallow toothpaste. ___67___ If this simple measure is taken, parents can be confident that children will be protected against tooth decay, and come to no harm. Almost all medicines have a negative effect-or even be deadly-if they are not taken as directed. ___68___ It is for this reason that fluoride supplements can only be obtained on prescription from a doctor or dentist. Taking too much fluoride while teeth are growing can lead to a condition called dental fluorosis (氟中毒). The most likely cause is the swallowing of fluoride toothpastes by young children. ___69___ For example, when fluoride is already present in drinking water, the overconsumption of it can seldom be avoided. But don’t be too worried, since fluoride overdoses are rare. In fact, I have never heard of any fatal incidents related to fluoride poisoning. Scientific studies have shown that fluoride can help to prevent cavities(牙洞)as long as it is used correctly. But it is also true that if fluoride is abused, there is a risk of illness or even death in extreme cases. ___70___ A person who has swallowed a large amount of fluoride will probably start vomiting. If not, the patient should be given milk or antacid and taken to the nearest hospital for emergency treatment. Ⅳ. Summary Writing Some say it is evident that computers can damage a person’s eyesight. Since the popularity of computers began to skyrocket, there have been questions associated with computer screens and eye strain. There are plenty of symptoms that often show up as a result of eye strain from computer screens. It may first start with a little soreness. Then, it may progress to dry eyes, blurred vision and even headaches. However, the extent to which computer screens damage eyesight is somewhat unclear. Taking a 10 to 15 minutes’break every hour while working is a good way to help avoid this and rest your eyes, though your employer may not be as generous with your break periods. If possible, break up computer tasks and non-computer tasks throughout the day as much as possible. One of the major improvements in computer screens has also helped. Still, even an LCD screen, if it is not adjusted properly or if it is too bright, can be just as hard on the eyes. This is very important as many people tend to keep their LCD screens too bright, simply because they are not viewing them from a proper angle and may be trying to compensate for the “screen door” effect. Fortunately, most of the eye damage, if it is to be called that, resulting from the use of computer screens tends to be a temporary situation. Once the eyes are rested long enough, the symptoms tend to quickly go away. However, if the eyes are not sufficiently rested, the symptoms may return quicker than they appeared at first once computer activities resume. Ⅴ.

Grammar(11%) Section A Directions: After reading the passage below , fill in each blank with the proper forms of the given words to make the passage coherent and grammatically correct. Sports shoes that work out (16) their owner has enough exercise to warrant time in front of the television have been devised in the UK. The shoes — named Square Eyes — contain an electronic pressure sensor and a tiny computer chip to record how many steps the wearer has taken in a day. A wireless transmitter passes the information to a receiver (17) (connect) to a television, and this decides how much evening viewing time the wearer deserves, based on the day’s efforts. The design was inspired by a desire to fight (18) the rapidly ballooning waistlines among British teenagers, says Gillian Swan, (19) developed Square Eyes as a final year design project at Brunel University to London, UK. “We looked at current issues and childhood 3 overweight really stood out,” she says. “And I wanted to tackle that with my design.” (20) a child has used up their daily allowance gained through exercise, the television automatically (21) (switch) off. And further time in front of the TV (22) only be earned through more steps. Swan calculated how exercise should translate to television time using the recommended daily amounts of (23) . Health experts suggest that a child take 12,000 steps each day and watch no more than two hours of television. So, every 100 steps recorded by the Square Eyes shoes (24) (equal) precisely one minute of TV time. Existing pedometers(计步器)normally clip onto a belt or slip into a pocket and keep count of steps by measuring sudden movement. Swan says these can be easily tricked (25) recording steps through shaking. But her shoe has been built to be (26) (hard) for lazy teenagers to cheat. “It is possible, but it would be a lot of effort,” she says. “That was one of my main design considerations.” Section B Directions: Complete the following passage by using the words in the box. Each word can only be used once. Note that there is one word more than you need. A. organizations B. physically C. adapted D. motivated E. potential F. issued G. individuals H. critical I. participants J. typically K. involved Youth sport has the (27) to accomplish three important objectives in children’s development. First, sport programs can provide youth with opportunities to be (28) active, which can lead to improved physical health. Second, youth sport programs have long been considered important to youth’s psychosocial development, providing opportunities to learn important life skills such as cooperation, discipline, leadership, and self-control. Third, youth sport programs are (29) for the learning of motor skills(运动技能); these motor skills serve as a foundation for future national sport stars and recreational adult sport (30) . When coachers develop activities for youth practices and when sport (31) design youth-sport programs, they must consider the implication of deliberate play and deliberate practice. Research from Telama (2006) states that regular participation in deliberate play or deliberate practice activities during childhood and youth (ages nine to eighteen) increases the likelihood of participation in sports during adulthood by six times for both males and females. C?té (2002) defines deliberate play activities in sport as those designed to maximize enjoyment. These activities are 4 regulated by flexible rules (32) from standardized sport rules and are set up by the children or by an involved adult. Children (33) change rules to find a point where their game is similar to the actual sport but still allows for play at their level. For example, children may change soccer and basketball rules to suit their needs and environment (e.g. in the street. on a playing field or in someone’s backyard). When (34) in deliberate play activities, children are less concerned with the outcome of their outcome of their behavior (whether they win or lose) than with the behavior (having fun). On the other hand, Ericsson (1993) suggests that the most effective learning occurs through involvement in highly structured activities defined as deliberate practice. Deliberate practice activities require effort, produce no immediate rewards, and are (35) by the goal of improving performance rather than the goal of enjoyment. When individuals are involved in deliberate play, they experiment with different combinations of behaviors, but not necessarily in the most effective way to improve performance. In contrast, when (36) are involved in deliberate practice, they exhibit behavior. focused on improving performance by the most effective means available. For example, the backhand skill in tennis could be learned and improved over time by playing matches or by creating fun practice situations. However, players could more effectively improve their backhand performance by practicing drills that might be considered less enjoyable. Although the drills used in most effective means available practice might not be the most enjoyable, they might be the most relevant to improving performance. Section B Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. (A) The 2012 London Olympics had enough problems to worry about. But one more has just been added-a communications blackout caused by solar storms. After a period of calm within the Sun, scientists have detected the signs of a fresh cycle of sunspots that could peak in 2012, just in time for the arrival of the Olympic torch in London. Now scientists believe that this peak could result in vast solar explosions that could throw 5 billions of tons of charged matter towards the Earth, causing strong solar storms that could jam the telecommunications satellites and Internet links sending five Olympic broadcast from London. "The Sun's activity has a strong influence on the Earth. The Olympics could be in the middle of the next solar maximum which could affect the functions of communications satellites," said Professor Richard Harrison, head of space physics at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire. At the peak of the cycle, violent outbursts called coronal mass ejections (日冕物质抛射) occur in the Sun's atmosphere, throwing out great quantities of electrically-charged matter."A coronal mass ejection can carry a billion tons of solar material into space at over a million kilometers per hour. Such events can expose astronauts to a deadly amount, can disable satellites, cause power failures on Earth and disturb communications," Professor Harrison added. The risk is greatest during a solar maximum when there is the greatest number of sunspots. Next week in America, NASA is scheduled to launch a satellite for monitoring solar activity called the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which will take images of the Sun that are 10 times clearer than the most advanced televisions available. The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory helped to make the high-tech cameras that will capture images of the solar flares (太阳耀斑) and explosions as they occur. Professor Richard Hold away, the lab's director, said that the SDO should be able to provide early warning of a solar flare or explosion big enough to affect satellite communications on Earth "If we have advance warning, we'll be able to reduce the damage. What you don't want is things switching off for a week with no idea of what's caused the problem," he said. 37. The phrase "communications blackout" in Paragraph 1 most probably refers to________ during the 2012 Olympics. A. the extinguishing of the Olympic torch B. the collapse of broadcasting systems C. the transportation breakdown in London D. the destruction of weather satellites 38. What can be inferred about the solar activity described in the passage? 6 A. The most fatal matter from the coronal falls onto Earth. B. The solar storm peak occurs in the middle of each cycle. C. It takes several seconds for the charged matter to reach Earth. D. The number of sunspots declines after coronal mass ejections. 39. According to the passage, NASA will launch a satellite to________. A. take images of the solar system B. provide early warning of thunderstorms C. keep track of solar activities D. improve the communications on Earth 40. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage? A. Solar Storms: An Invisible Killer B. Solar Storms: Earth Environment in Danger C. Solar Storms: Threatenting the Human Race D. Solar Storms: Human Activities to Be Troubled (B) Elixir written by Eric Walters Twelve-year-old Roth becomes a friend of Dr. Banting and his assistant, Mr. Best,who are in search of a cure for diabetes (糖尿病).

Elizabeth Macleod B. Eric Walters C. Rocky London & David MacDonald D. Bev Spencer (C) Look to many of history’s cultural symbols, and there you’ll find an ancestor of Frosty, the snowman in the movie Frozen. It appeared on some of the first postcards, starred in some of the earliest silent movies, and was the subject of a couple of the earliest photos, dating all the way back to the 1800s. I discovered even more about one of humanity’s earliest forms of life art during several years of research around the world. For example, snowmen were a phenomenon in the Middle Ages, built with great skill and thought. At a time of limited means of expression, snow was like free art supplies dropped from the sky. It was a popular activity for couples to leisurely walk through town to view the temporary works of chilly art. Some were created by famous artists, including a 19-year-old Michelangelo, who in 1494 was appointed by the ruler of Florence, Italy, to build a snowman in his mansion’s courtyard. The Miracle of 1511 took place during six freezing works called the Winter of Death. The city of Brussels was covered in snowmen -- an impressive scene that told stories on every street corner. Some were political in nature, criticizing the church and government. Some were a reflection of people’s imagination. For the people of Brussels, this was a defining moment of defining freedom. At least until spring arrived, by which time they were dealing with damaging floods. If you fear the heyday of the snowman has passed, don’t worry: I’ve learned that some explosive snowman history is still being made today. Every year since 1818, the people of Zurich, Switzerland, celebrate the beginning of spring by blowing up a snowman. On the third Monday of April, the holiday Sechselauten is kicked off when a cotton snowman called the Boogg is stuffed with explosive and paraded through town by bakers and other tradesmen who throw bread to the crowds. The parade ends with the Boogg being placed on a 40-foot pile of firewood. After the bells of the Church of St. Peter have rung six times, representing the passing of winter, the pile is lit. When the snowman explodes, winter is considered officially over -- the quicker it is burnt down, the longer summer is said to be. 45. According to the passage, why did snowmen become a phenomenon in the Middle Ages? A. People thought of snow as holy art supplies. 9 B. People longed to see masterpieces of snow. C.

    Grammar 英语最基本的语序是主语在前,谓语动词在后。但有时由于句子结构的需要或表示强调,就要采用倒装形式。将谓语动词完全移到主语之前称为完全倒装,只将助动词或情态动词放到主语之前称为部分倒装。强调性倒装和以so, neither, nor开头的句子是高考例题的热点。 (1)倒装句的意义 1、适应一定的语法结构的需要,主要是指疑问句句型结构的需要。 e.g. May I come in? Was the People’s Liberation Army founded in 1927? 2、为了强调某一部分,而把这部分放到句首,构成倒装。 e.g. Never have I been late for school this term. So early did he come to school that no other students came. (2)倒装的使用情况 1、在 "there be" 结构里,there是引导词,主语在be后。 e.g. There is a box on the table. 2、在疑问句中。 e.g. Is she singing in the classroom? What does your mother do? ================================================ 压缩包内容: 牛津上海版高二英语必修3 unit 1Sporting Events 语法学案.doc
