Barditch High School decided to an All-School Reunion.Over 450 people came to the event.There were tours of the old school building and a picnic at Confederate Park.Several former teachers were on hands to tell stories about the old days.Ms.Mabel Yates, the English teacher for fifty years, was wheeled to the Park.
Some eyes rolled and there were a few low groans（嘟囔声）when Ms.Yates was about to speak.Many started looking at their watches and coming up with excuses to be anywhere instead of preparing to listen to a lecture from and old woman who had few kind words for her students and made them work harder than all the other teachers combined.
Then Ms.Yates started to speak:
“I can’t tell you how pleased I am to be here.I haven’t seen many of you since your graduation, but I have followed your careers and enjoyed your victories as well as crying for your tragedies.I have a large collection of newspaper photographs of my students.Although I haven’t appeared in person, I have attended your college graduations, weddings and even the birth your children, in my imagination.”
Ms.Yates paused and started crying a bit.Then she continued:
“It was my belief that if I pushed you as hard as I could, some of you would succeed to please me and others would succeed to annoy me.Regardless of our motives, I can see that you have all been successful in you chosen path.”
“There is no greater comfort for an educator than to see the end result of his or her years of work.You have all been a great source of pleasure and pride for me and I want you to know I love you all from the bottom of my heart.”
There was a silence over the crowd for a few seconds and then someone started clapping.Tee clapping turned into cheering, then into a deafening roar（呼喊）。 Lawyers, truck drivers, bankers and models were rubbing their eyes or crying openly with no shame all because of the words from a long forgotten English teacher from their hometown.

The practice of students endlessly copying letters and sentences from a blackboard is a thing of the past.With the coming of new technologies like computers and smartphone, writing by hand has become something of nostalgic （怀旧的）skill.However, while today’s educators are using more and more technology in their teaching, many believe basic handwriting skills are still necessary for students to be successful---both in school and in life.
Virginia Berninger, professor of educational psychology at the University of Washington, says it’s important to continue teaching handwriting and help children acquire the skill of writing by hand.
Berninger and her colleagues conducted a study that looked at the ability of students to complete various writing tasks---both on a computer and by hand.The study, published in 2009, found that when writing with a pen and paper, participants wrote longer essays and more complete sentences and had a faster word production rate.
In a more recent study, Berninger looked at what role spelling plays in a student’s writing skills and found that how well children spell is tied to know well they can write.“Spelling makes some of the thinking parts of the brain active which helps us access our vocabulary, word meaning and concepts.It is allowing our written language to connect with ideas.” Berninger said.
Spelling helps students translate ideas into words in their mind first and then to transcribe（转换） “those words in the mind written symbols on paper or keyboard and screen,” the study said.Seeing the words in the “mind’s eye” helps children not only to turn their ideas into words, says Berninger, but also to spot（发现） spelling mistakes when they write the words down and to correct then over time.
“In our computer age, some people believe that we don’t have to teach spelling because we have spell checks,” she said.“But until a child has a functional spelling ability of about a fifth grade level, they won’t have the knowledge to choose the correct spelling among the options given by the computer.”

A.The absence of blackboard in classroom. B.The use of new technologies in teaching.

B.Spelling ability is closely related to writing ability.
C.Spelling benefits the translation from words into ideas.
D.Spelling slows down finding exact words to express ideas.
49.What does “mind’s eye” in paragraph 5 mean?

50.What conclusion could be drawn from the passage?
A.Computers can help people with their choice of words.
B.Spell checks can take the place of spelling teaching.
C.Handwriting still has a place in today’s classrooms.
D.Functional spelling ability develops fast in the fifth grade.
You are given many opportunities in life to choose to be a victim or creator.When you choose to be a victim, the world is a cold and difficult place.“They” did things to you which caused all of your pain and suffering.“They” are wrong and bad, and life is terrible as long as “they” are around.Or you may blame yourself for all your problems, thus internalizing（内化）your victimization.The truth is, your life is likely to stay that way as long as you feel a need to blame yourself or others.
Those who choose to be creators look at life quite differently.They know there are individuals who might like to control their lives, but they don’t let this get in the way.They know they have their weaknesses, yet they don’t blame themselves when they fail.Whatever happens, they have choice in the matter.They believe their dance with each sacred（神圣的）moment of life is a gift and that storms are a natural part of life which can bring the rain needed for emotional and spiritual growth.
Victims and creators live in the same physical world and deal with many of the same physical realities, yet their experience of life is worlds apart.Victims relish （沉溺）in anger, guilt, and other emotions that cause others---and even themselves---to feel like victims, too.Creators consciously choose love, inspiration, and other qualities which inspire not only themselves, but all around them.Both victims and creators always have choice to determine the direction of their lives.
In reality, all of us play the victim or the creator at various points in our lives.One person, on losing a job or a special relationship, may feel as if it is the end of the world and sink into terrible suffering for months, years, or even a lifetime.Another with the same experience may choose to first experience the grief, then accept the loss and soon move on to be a powerful creative force in his life.
In every moment and every circumstance, you can choose to have fuller, richer life by setting a clear intention to transform the victim within, and by inviting into your life the powerful creator that you are.
51.What does the word “they” in Paragraph 1 probably refer to?
A.People and things around you. B.Opportunities and problems.
C.Creators and their choices. D.Victims and their sufferings.
52.According to Paragraph 2, creators __________.
A.seem willing to experience failures in life B.possess the ability to predict future life
C.handle ups and downs of life wisely D.have potential to create something new
53.What can we learn from Paragraph 3?
A.Creators and victims face quite different things in life.
B.Creators and victims are masters of their lives.
C.Victims can influence more people than creators.
D.Compared with victims, creators are more emotional.
54.The examples mentioned in Paragraph 4 show that _______________.
A.strong attachment to sufferings in life pulls people into victims.
B.people need family support to deal with challengers in life.
C.it takes creators quite a long time to get rid of their pains.
D.one’s experiences determine his attitude toward life.
55.What is the author’s purpose in writing this passage?
A.To define victims and creators.
B.To evaluate victims against creators.
C.To explain the relationship between victims and creators.
D.To suggest the transformation from victims to creators.
Born in 1949, Diana Nyad took an early interest in swimming as a sport and was a Florida State High School swimming champion.Like many young athletes, she had Olympic dreams, but a serious illness kept her competing in the Games.The disappointment didn’t stop her from going forward.Instead, she became interested in marathon swimming.A brilliant athlete, she was well-conditioned for spending long periods of time in the water.As a long-distance swimmer, she would compete against herself and the obstacles presented by distance, danger, cold, and exhaustion.
For ten years Nyad devoted herself to becoming one of the world’s best long-distance swimmers.In 1970, she swam a ten-mile marathon in Lake Ontario, setting the women’s record for the course.In 1972 she set another record by swimming 102.5 miles from an island in the Bahamas to the coast of Florida.Then she broke a third record when swimming around Manhattan Island in 1975.
Nyad attempted to swim the distance between Florida and Cuba in 1978.Though the span of water is less than 100 miles wide, it is rough and dangerous.After battling the water for two days, she had to give for the sake of her own health and safety.Even so, she impressed the world with her courage and strong desire to succeed.For Nyad her strength of purpose was just as important as reading Cuba.That is how she defined success.It did not matter that her swim came up short; she believed she had touched the other shore.
When Nyad ended her career as a swimmer, she continued to try new things---travelling the world as a reporter, writing books and giving public speeches about her life.Diana Nyad works to inspire others, just as she did when she swam the waters of the world.
