Recently, more than 2,000 high school teachers have been asked about the effect of the Internet on their students. Teachers say the Internet has had a good influence(影响and a not-so-good influence on this generation.
Three quarters of the teachers say the Internet and search tools have had a great effect on their students' research habits and skills. But 87 percent agree that this young generation don' t know about hard work and can't stay attentive(注意力集中的) for long. And 64 percent say the Internet does more to distract (使分心)students than to help them in their studies. Many students think "doing research"just means doing a quick search on Google.
According to the teachers, one problem is that students trust too much of the information on the Internet. These students have not developed skills to judge the quality of the information. It' s some-thing that really has to be taught and paid attention to. It' s like everything else. In a world where things can happen quickly, you really need to have a way to step back, think and make judgment about the information you have. And teachers can do a lot to teach that.
Another problem is that being able to quickly find information keeps the students from working hard. They become dependent on search tools and do not make enough use of printed books. Many teachers are also afraid that the Internet makes it easy for students to copy work done by others.
36.What does the text mainly discuss about the Internet?
A.Its success in high school teaching.
B.Its influence on school teachers.
C.Its achievements in school research.
D.Its effect on high school students.
37.What is the percentage of the teachers who think the students need hard work?
A.75%. B.64%. C.87%. D.70%.
38.What should be taught to students according to Paragraph 3 ?
A.Ways to improve their research habits.
B.How to do research on the Internet.
C.Skills to judge the quality of information.
D.How to pay attention to their studies.
39.What will happen when students depend too much on search tools?
A.Their studies will be greatly improved.
B.They won' t make good use of books.
C.Their attention to things will last longer.
D.They won' t copy work done by others.
I am watching my son and hundreds of his classmates, marching in perfect order into the university football stadium(体育场).Holding back my tears, I search for my son in the sea of people. Suddenly, there he is. I jump to my feet and start waving. Arms flying back and forth above my head, I look like a windmill(风车),or maybe an airport worker guiding a plane. I see him smile,then laugh as he pulls his camera out of his pocket. He takes a picture of me as he waves back, and then goes to find his seat.
What is it about graduations that makes them so moving? Why do most of us women cry as we-watch our sons ,daughters, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews march in dark robes(长袍) .9 We cry partly because, no matter how old our children are, and no matter how much they have achieved, in our eyes they are still the little babies we carry around the house to comfort.
And ,of course, we cry also because something wonderful is ending, and we miss it already.Whatever is on its way to take its place will not be the same. It has been such a gift to have my son go to college close to home. We never have to worry about whether he will be able to make the trip home for a holiday. But this was a time-limited gift. My son will attend graduate school in California.We will talk and text like crazy, and visit as often as we can. But it will not be the same.

Once a month,just after sunset, trucks fill an outdoor parking lot in Los Angeles, California.Some trucks sell all kinds of food. Others have clothing for sale. These are known as fashion (时尚)trucks.
It's really fun to go through everything in the truck. The back of the truck is a small store.Clothing hangs on one side. Jewelry(首饰) and purses are on the other. The store looks colorful and is well organized. There is also a very small room for trying on clothes.
Jordana Fortaleza is one of the truck owners. She says the cost of owning a truck is much lower than paying for a store. And there is another reason to use a truck. You can take your business to your customers. But there are also difficulties.
The biggest problem is the weather. In winter, it' s cold outside and there' s no one around. Another problem is keeping the truck in good condition. When it breaks down, the repairs can take days. Business stops during the time. It happens at least once a year because her truck is 38 years old.

Body language is of great importance to humans. We carry many of the meanings through body movements. However, many forms of body language we consider to be fine in our country can get us into trouble in other parts of the world.
A smile is one of the most common examples in different countries. While Americans smile freely at strangers,in Russia this is considered strange and even impolite. In Asian countries a smile isn't necessarily an expression of joy but it can be used to express pain.
The acceptable physical distance is another major difference. In Latin America and the Middle East the acceptable distance is much shorter than what most Europeans and Americans feet comfortable with. Hand and arm movements as a form of body language are also very different among countries. Handshakes are usually acceptable almost everywhere, even between strangers；however,kissing on the cheek and touching on the shoulder or other body parts aren't. For many people in Asia and other parts of the world, such actions are seen as a violation (侵犯) of one's personal space. This is why you should not touch others easily.
Eye contact(目光接触)is one of the forms of body language where the differences are most striking In America and Latin America looking the other person in the eye is a sign of respect. But in Asian countries,prolonged(过长的)eye contact is especially rude,so you should try your best not to do that.
47.To humans, body language is__________.
A.important B.funny C.uncommon D.Strange
48.In which place is smiling at strangers considered impolite?
A.The U.S. B.Asia. C.Latin America. D.Russia.
49.Which form of body language is acceptable almost everywhere?
A.Kissing on the cheek. B.Shaking hands.
C.Touching on the shoulder. D.Keeping a short distance.
50.What does striking in the fourth paragraph most probably mean?
A.Interesting to read. B.Easy to notice.
C.Impossible to remember. D.Difficult to accept.
