The Beginning of DramaThere are many theories about the beginning of drama in ancient Greece. The one most widely accepted today is based on the 36 that drama evolved from ritual( 宗教仪式). The argument for this view goes as follows. In the beginning, human beings 37 the natural forces of the world—even the seasonal changes—as unpredictable, and they sought through various means to 38 these unknown and feared powers. Those measures which appeared to 39 the desired results were then kept and repeated until they changed into 40 rituals. 41 stories arose which explained or masked the mysteries of the rituals. As times passed, some rituals were 42 , but the stories, later called myths, continued to exist and provided material for art and drama.Those who believed that drama evolved out of ritual also argue that those rituals contained the 43 of theatre because music, dance, masks, and 44 were almost always used. 45 , a suitable site had to be provided for performances and 46 the entire community did not participate , a(n) 47 division was usually made between the “ area of acting “ and the “ area in which an audience sits ”. Besides, there were performers, and, since considerable importance was 48 to avoiding mistakes in the practice of rituals, religious leaders usually 49 that task. Wearing masks and costumes, they often imitated (模仿) other people, animals, or supernatural beings, and mimed (用哑剧表演出) the 50 effect—success in hunt or battle, the coming rain, the revival of the Sun— 51 an actor might. Eventually such dramatic representatives were separated from 52 activities.Another theory traces the theater’s origin from the human interest in 53 . According to this view , tales about the hunt , war or other things are told and gradually spread. 54 through the use of action and dialogue by a narrator and then through the assumption of each of the roles by a different person. A closely related theory traces theater to those dances that are primarily gymnastic or that are 55 of animal movements and sounds.36. A . background B. assumption C. evidence D. theory37.

AThere will come a time when you must decide to lead the life someone else has chosen for you… or the life you want. According to legend, when a young boy asked the great Renaissance artist Michelangelo why he was working so hard hitting the block of marble that would eventually become his greatest sculpture, David, the artist replied, “Young man, there is an angel inside this rock, and I am setting him free.” In The Angel Inside, the well-known consultant and career coach Chris Widener uses Michelangelo’s words to explore the hidden potential that exists within us all. In this unforgettable tale, Tom Cook, a disillusioned（幻想破灭的）American businessman, has traveled to Italy looking for direction in his life. In Florence, the last city on his tour, Tom meets a mysterious old man who opens his eyes to the art and life of Michelangelo and reveals what the artist’s work can teach him — and all of us — about the power of following your passion. Whether you are looking for a way to reinvigorate your career or searching for the courage to begin a new one, The Angel Inside is a must-read if you want to find true meaning in your life and work. The break-out business story that’s already sold more than 70,000 copies, The Angel Inside tells the story of a young man searching for meaning in his work and finding it in an unlikely place: the life and art of Michelangelo.Advance Praise for The Angel Inside“The Angel Inside is a powerfully simple story that helps you discover your potential for a passionate life!”— John C. Maxwell, author, speaker and founder of INJOY Stewardship Services and EQUIP “ Chris Widener’s The Angel Inside is a short read that is long on wisdom for life. Take an hour and a half of your time and delve into this truly meaningful book. It will captivate you from beginning to end, but more importantly, it will help you create your own life of power and beauty.”
—Jim Rohn“ A very special one-day relationship between a wise mentor and his struggling but eager protégé. What a delightful story for everyone to read, and from which to benefit greatly!”
— Bob Burg
“ The Angel Inside” is truly one of the most inspiring, encouraging motivational books I have ever read. Once I got started, I found it impossible to stop reading. And I say this as a man who has never read friction; I’ve always said that when I get all of the truth, then I’ll start reading fiction. It was a wonderful thrill to read a work of fiction that contains an enormous amount of truth and encouragement.”

Readers can benefit a lot from The Angel Inside.
BThe first time we started using it, we thought it would just be a bit of fun, a one-time thing. __A__“Let’s just give it a try,” my fiancée said. I was a bit nervous, but I knew some of our friends were already into it, and they said it was fine and that I should relax because everyone was doing it.“OK,” I agreed, convinced it would be harmless.___B___Before long, we were using it once a week. Then it became twice a week. We went from using it after work to using it in the mornings, and then at lunchtime, too.Suddenly we reached a point where we were using it every day. Even when I wasn’t using it, I was thinking about using it. ___C___That’s when I realized the terrible truth. We couldn’t stop.Dear readers, it shames me to admit it, but I am an addict of online shopping site Taobao.And I don‘t think I’m the only one. __D__ I see the telltale signs every where: People with bags under their eyes, clearly exhausted after staying up late browsing items they might one day need (but probably won’t)，like the 1940s leather aviator cap I bought in the event I ever need to become an aviator in the 1940s. I see co-workers furtively (偷偷摸摸地）sneaking down to the mailroom, eyes darting around suspiciously.I know what‘s going through your mind as you read this.“This isn’t me，” you’re thinking, “I can stop anytime I want.”But can you?In China you can get same day delivery for just about anything you buy online. In Australia, my home country, the same item would take weeks to arrive.“It‘s the convenience,' I said to my fiancée. “That’s why we‘re hooked.”But is that convenience worth the risk of waking up one morning to discover you’ve been buried alive in masses of brand new women’s shoes?In my case it’s probably not, especially because I suspect my fiancée won’t realize I‘m missing until weeks later, when my credit card stops working and I‘ve long since expired.So what can you do to battle this terrible addiction?Never fear, dear readers, because I‘ve created a special five-step list to help you stop online shopping.Step one: Acknowledge you have a problem. Resist buying adult-sized, Star Wars Stormtrooper outfit on Taobao. You don’t really need it.Step two: Try not to feel guilty about buying adult-sized, Star Wars Stormtrooper outfit on Taobao. Step three: Put the computer and smartphone away, get back to nature, and take a walk in the park. Step four: Try not to feel guilty about buying a new outfit for your walk in the park. I mean, it was on sale, right?Step five: Buying a book on how to quit Taobao...from Taobao.On second thoughts, maybe don’t listen to me, after all.59. Where should the sentence “I have never been so wrong in my entire life.” be put in the passage?A. In blank A. B. In blank B. C. In blank C. D. In blank 60. The author writes the underlined paragraph to show ________.A. Taobao is a popular and successful online shopping siteB. online shopping is an effective way to help relaxC. people today are fond of the 1940s leather aviator capD. quite a lot of people are hooked on online shopping61. The author concludes this passage with a tone of________.A. confidence and optimism
B. disappointment and disapproval
C. uncertainty and humor
D. confusion and sympathy
CYou’re probably aware of the basic trends. The financial rewards to education have increased over the past few decades, but men fail to benefit.In elementary and high school, male academic performance is lagging. Boys earn three-quarters of the D’s and F’s. By college, men are clearly behind. Only 40 percent of bachelor’s degree go to men, along with 40 percent of master’s degree.Thanks to their lower skills, men are dropping out of the labor force. In 1954, 96 percent of the American men between the ages of 25 and 54 worked. Today, that number is down to 80 percent. In Friday‘s jobs report, male labor force participation reached an all-time low.Millions of men are collecting disability benefits. Even many of those who do have a job are doing poorly. According to Michael Greenstone of the Hamilton Project, annual earnings for average prime-age males have dropped by 28 percent over the past 40 years.Men still dominate (主宰) the top of the corporate ladder because many women take time off to raise children, but women lead or are gaining nearly everywhere else. Women in their 20s outearn men in their 20s. Twelve out of the 15 fastest-growing professions are dominated by women.Over the years, many of us have employed a certain theory to explain men‘s economic decline. It is that the information-age economy rewards qualities that women are more likely to possess.To succeed today, you have to be able to sit still and focus attention in school at an early age. You have to be emotionally sensitive and aware of context. You have to communicate smoothly. For genetic and cultural reasons, many men are not good at these.But, in her fascinating new book, The End of Men, Hanna Rosin suggests a different theory. It has to do with adaptability. Women, Rosin argues, are like immigrants (移民) who have moved to a new country. They see a new social context, and they flexibly adapt to .new circumstances. Men are like immigrants who have physically moved to a new country but who have kept their minds in the old one. They speak the old language. They follow the old customs. Men are more likely to be rigid; women are more fluid.This theory has less to do with born qualities and more to do with social position. When there’s big social change, the people who were on the top of the old order are bound to stick to the old ways. The people who were on the bottom are bound to experience a burst of energy. They are going to explore their new surroundings more enthusiastically.Rosin reports from working-class Alabama. The women she meets are flooding into new jobs and new opportunities — going back to college, pursuing new careers. The men are waiting around for the jobs left and are never coming back. They are strangely immune (免疫的）to new options. In the Auburn-Opelika region, the average female income is 140 percent of the average male income.Rosin is not saying that women are winners in a global gender (性别) war or that they are doing super simply because men are doing worse. She‘s just saying women are adapting to today’s economy more flexibly than men. There’s a lot of evidence to support her case.A study by the National Federation of Independent Business found that small businesses owned by women outperformed male-owned small business during the last recession (衰退). In finance, women who switch firms are more likely to see their performance improve, whereas men are likely to see theirs decline. There‘s even evidence that women are better able to adjust to divorce. Today, more women than men see their incomes rise by 25 percent after a marital breakup.Forty years ago, men and women stuck to certain theory, what it meant to be a man or a woman. Young women today, Rosin argues, have abandoned both feminist (女权主义者）and prefeminist preconceptions. Men still stick to the masculinity (大男子主义的）rules, which limit their vision and their movement.If she‘s right, then men will have to acknowledge that they are strangers in a strange land.62. Which of the following statements is TRUE?A. Male labor force participation has declined by 80% since 1954.B. More men than women take time off to raise children now.C. Good communication is one of the qualities that women possess.D. Men are still taking most top and fastest-growing professions.63. In Hanna Rosin’s opinion, male performance is falling behind because _______.A. men are less likely to sit still and focus in school at early ageB. men are more rigid and less able to adapt to new circumstancesC. women are doing better for genetic and cultural reasonsD. it is more and more difficult for men to get bachelor’s degree64. What is the passage intended to convey?A. The differences between men and women.B. The reasons why men do no better than women.C. The social status of men and women.D. The reasons why men fail compared with women.
DIt appears that the police now have a device that can read license plates and check if a car is unregistered, uninsured or stolen. We already know that National Security Agency can dip into your Facebook page and Google searches. And it seems that almost every store we go into these days wants your home phone number and ZIP code as part of any transaction (交易）.So when Edward Snowden — now cooling his heels in Russia — revealed the extent to which the NSA is spying on Americans, collecting data on phone calls we make, it‘s not as if we should have been surprised. We live in a world that George Orwell predicted in 1984. And that realization has caused sales of the 1949, dystopian (反乌托邦）novel to spike dramatically upward recently — a 9,000% increase at one point on Amazon. com.Comparisons between Orwell’s novel about a tightly controlled totalitarian (极权主义的） future ruled by the ubiquitous (无所在的）Big Brother and today are, in fact, quite similar. Here are a few of the most obvious ones.Telescreens — in the novel, nearly all public and private places have large TV screens that broadcast government propaganda (宣传), news and approved entertainment. But they are also two-way monitors that spy on citizens, private lives. Today websites like Facebook track our likes and dislikes, and governments and private individuals hack into our computers and find out what they want to know. Then there are the ever-present surveillance (监控) cameras that spy on the ordinary people as they go about their daily routine.The endless war — In Orwell’s book, there‘s global war that has been going on seemingly forever, and as the book‘s hero, Winston Smith, realizes the enemy keeps changing. One week we’re at war with Eastasia and friends with Eurasia. The next week, it‘s just the opposite. There seems little to distinguish the two adversaries (对手), and they are used primarily to keep the people of Oceania, where Smith lives, in a constant state of fear, thereby making disagreement unthinkable — or punishable. Today we have the so-called war on terror, with no end in sight, a generalized societal fear, suspension of certain civil liberties, and an ill-defined enemy who could be anywhere, and anything.Newspeak — the fictional, stripped-down English language, used to limit free thought. OMG (Oh my God), RU (Are you) serious? That‘s so FUBAR (Fucked Beyond Ail Recognition). LMAO (Laugh My Ass Off).Memory hole — this is the machine used in the book to change or disappear embarrassing documents. Paper shredders (碎纸机） had been invented, but were hardly used when Orwell wrote his book, and the concept of wiping out a hard drive was years in the future. But the memory hole foretold both technologies.So what’s it all meant? In 1984, Winston Smith, after an intense round of ^behavioral modification” — read: torture— learns to love Big Brother, and the difficult world he was born into. Jump forward to today, it seems we‘ve willingly given up all sorts of freedoms, and much of our right to privacy. Fears of terrorism have a lot to do with this, but dizzying advances in technology, and the ubiquity of social media, play a big part.There are those who say that if you don‘t have anything to hide, you have nothing to be afraid of. But the fact is, when a government agency can monitor everyone‘s phone calls, we have all become suspects. This is one of the most frightening aspects of our modem society. And even more frightening is the fact that we have gone so far down the street, there is probably no turning back. Unless you spend your life in a wilderness cabin, totally off the grid, there is simply no way the government won’t have information about you stored away somewhere.What this means, unfortunately, is that we are all Winston Smith. And Big Brother is the modem surveillance state.65. What caused 1984 to sell well on Amazon.com?A. The fact that authorities have access to our personal information.B. The worry that our government agencies can monitor our phones.C. The surprise at how Americans are spied on by the government.D. The similarities between the world we live in and that of 1984.66. Which of the following statements is TRUE?A. When Orwell wrote 1984, paper shredders didn‘t exist.B. Winston Smith loves Big Brother due to the fears of terrorism.C. Telescreens arc used to broadcast and spy on citizens’ privacy.D. The war with Eastasia makes people in Oceania fearful.67. What docs the underlined word “this” in Paragraph 8 refer to?A. Willingness to abandon freedom and privacy.B. Addiction to social media.C. A round of “behavioral modification”.D. The phone calls being monitored.68. The underlined part in the passage replies that _______.A. we are walking along the street too far to go back homeB. it is impossible for us to return to our initial pathC. if s very difficult for us to change the current situationD. the government can find out which street we are going down69. Which of the following is the best title for the passage?A. We’re living “1984” today.B. Big Brother is watching you.C. We are all Winston Smith.D. The NSA is spying on Americans.70. What is the writer‘s attitude towards the phenomenon?A. Optimistic. B. Concerned. C. Angry. D. Enthusiastic.

The important thing is the quality of them. I would rather have a small team that works in concert than a big team so scattered（分散的）that nothing ever gets done. It’s better to have a few close friends who love you for who you are than a lot of acquaintances who you’re not so comfortable with.Here are five ways you can make people enjoy being around you.1. Be confident, but not cocky.There is a big difference between healthy confidence and arrogant（傲慢的）cockiness. A confident person, when complimented about a wonderful thing they did, would reply with a simple “thank you.” A cocky person would take the opportunity to perform an unscheduled Academy Award acceptance speech. A confident person would offer praise for everybody who contributed to their success. A cocky person would claim all the credit for themselves without a second thought. Cocky people might experience temporary perks, but long-lasting success is a prize reserved for the confident.2. Be approachable, but not a pushover.You should welcome your friends and coworkers with open arms. It’s hard to find a person who will offer a listening ear in time of need, so fulfilling that need will help you become a person people trust. But there can be too much of a good thing. If you find yourself with invitations you’re not that interested in, don’t be afraid to politely reject them. If your schedule becomes occupied by people desiring your attention, set some ground rules and prioritize（优先考虑）. To take care of others, you must first take care of yourself.3. Be direct in expression, but not nasty in delivery.Receiving honesty with no filter （过滤）is like finding a massive glass of ice water during a desert adventure. Speak words of truth, and people will be refreshed to hear them. Most people sugarcoat their opinions, so a willingness to tell it how you see it will win the appreciation of your friends and coworkers. But here’s the catch: delivery is everything. There is a big difference between “Your article sucks”and “I like the general concept, but I think it might play better if you try if from a different angle.” Truth is something you should aim for, but it isn’t a ticket to be nasty to people. To deliver honest and helpful feedback, use this sentence structure: “ I liked (insert positive quality), but I think it would be better if (constructive criticism/ suggestion for improvement).”4. Be mindful of your actions, but not absorbed in yourself.Have you ever found yourself nervous while fielding questions in a job interview or talking to a cute person you have a crush on? So eager to make a positive first impression that you can’t escape the constant stream of thoughts causing you to doubt if you’re saying and doing the right things? As a consequence, you might find yourself so self-absorbed that you can’t focus on what the other person is saying. The less time you spend questioning yourself and the more time you spend actively listening to the other person, the better off you will be.5. Be assertive, but not overbearing.There is a thin line between being assertive and overbearing, so let’s take a look at their definitions.as·ser·tive (adjective): having or showing a confident and forceful personallyo·ver·bear·ing (adjective): unpleasantly or arrogantly domineering （专横的）An assertive person would confidently (and politely) ask friends or networking contacts for help if they needed it (and hopefully offer to return the favor). An overbearing person would force people to get what they wanted without a second thought about how their actions affected others. Being overbearing will make people avoid you because no one wants to help a pushy person. Being assertive will attract people to you, if you can reflect confidence and enthusiasm.

Our Life Rests on Our Choice为题，用英语写一篇150词左右的文章。
Life is a matter of choice. Seemingly, it means a choice of concrete (具体的) things. But in fact, it means choosing a way of life. Life is to be lived and enjoyed, not to be wasted or complained about.
Hardly can we forget the time when our society faced the threat from the life-and death disease --- SARS. Yet, even during those dreadful times, some suffering people remained optimistic. Instead of wearing white masks, some people turned to colorful ones, and thus displayed a happy mood. And some creative people dubbed SARS to mean “SMILE AND REMAIN SMILING.” People who survive these kinds of circumstances decide in their minds to carry on in spite of the hardships.
Although we cannot choose our appearance, inborn gifts and even avoid unexpected disasters and adversities (逆境), we do have the right to choose to live optimistically, to love our lives, to have dreams, and to cherish hopes.
Every morning when we get up, we have a choice of how we want to approach life that day.

Life, to some extent, rests on our choice. Life is full of ups and downs. When the time comes for us to make choices, we should be aware of the importance of a positive attitude. A positive attitude somehow resembles the sail of a ship, which offers us the right direction.As a teenager, it is of great significance to take a positive attitude towards life. To stay energetic, I will stick to an exercise schedule. I will also keep myself informed of the current events and communicate more with others, becoming socially connected.

The food is great and the service is just perfect.Text3M: Do you find the film Big Hero 6 a little bit boring?W: Why? It can be anything but boring. Baymax is such a perfect companion. I am dying to have a robot friend like him myself.Text4W: Oh, my! Look at the rain! It would be impossible for me to get a taxi to the meeting! Can you give me a ride there?M: I’d like to. But I am afraid that I may fail to send you there in time in case there is a terrible traffic jam in such a rain. You’d better go by underground.Text5M: Jenny, have you ever read the novel The Ordinary World by Lu Yao?W: Yes, of course. The novel itself is really inspiring. Sun Shaoping is really my hero. He is strong-minded and manages to fight out of the ordinary.M: Yeah, it appears to me that nothing can change his mind of working hard for a better life.W: I can’t agree more.Text6W: Hi, there!M: I am thinking of getting an earphone for my father’s 40th birthday.

All of the students’ assignments are posted on a web page, so for each of their papers or essays they have to write, students can just go online and read the descriptions of the assignment and all their requirements, and then they can type them up and e-mail them. They can also type them up directly on the web. In this way, a teacher can do all the grading for the papers online. It’s easier for teachers because they can just highlight something and make it red or whatever. It’s much quicker than the traditional way of circling it and writing “spelling”. Once teachers get into the habit of doing it with a mouse, it goes very quickly, and they can also make comments by changing the color or the size of the words, and type directly. Most of the students like it, but there is a small minority who don’t. When they are late, or whenever they want to just slip a paper under the teacher’s door, they can’t do that, because if their paper is later, the computer doesn’t lie. The delayed papers will be honestly marked out.
