How does a brilliant teacher get that way? The question of how they developed has as many answers as there are inspired instructors. One example is an original and magnetic woman who has become one of best ever at taking disadvantaged students to a new level.
Jackson was born in Altoona. Her father was a construction worker. When she was in the eighth grade, her father died just before Christmas. Her principal, Mrs. Brown, said not to worry about schoolwork for a while. That upset her. Her father would not have wanted her to do anything but her best. He always said: "Don't let your first failure be the reason for your next."
Jackson was an accomplished shooting guard in basketball and a star sprinter on the track team, running the quarter — mile in 57 seconds. She thought she might become a sports broadcaster. She gave no thought to teaching until a friend took her to an introduction to a program, which placed novice instructors in schools full of low-income children. Jackson liked the idea of giving back, as well as the chance to have some of her student loans forgiven.
She is a big sports person, and that is how she connects with lots of kids. She couldn't motivate children until she knew what was bothering or pleasing them. “Students learn from people who love them/5 she said, “They will be motivated and inspired to learn if they know deep down that you care about them." In class she gave basketball tickets to students who were doing their work. At weekly drawings they could win sticky notes, pencils or other small prizes.
She helped create after-school clubs. A tall student said to her: 'I'm a bailer. I heard you ball." There was a basketball league in Paterson, but the school didn't have a team. Jackson started one with support from local business executives. The student, Essence Carson, went to Rutgers University, was a first-round draft（运动员选拔机制） selection for the WNBA's New York Liberty and now plays for the Connecticut Sun.
24. Why did Mrs. Brown's words upset Jackson?
A. Her father just passed away.B.She was taught to do her best.
C. Her first failure led to another one.D.She was concerned about her grades.
25. What is the main idea of Paragraph 3?
A. The way Jackson turned teacher.B.The dream job Jackson desired.
C. The student loans Jackson owed.D.The athletics Jackson did well in.
26. Why did Jackson give small prizes to her students in class?
A. To connect with them.B. To please or bother them.
C. To encourage them to learn.D. To show her love to them.
27. What can we infer from the last paragraph?
A. Jackson founded a school team in Paterson alone.
B. Jackson played in the basketball league in Paterson.
C. Jackson selected Essence to play for WNBA's New York Liberty.
D. Jackson should take some credit for Essence's professional career.
Have you ever noticed that the stars sometimes appear brighter in December, January and February? There's a link between cold air and the night lights. "Part of it is that it tends to be drier in the winter," said Diane Tumshek, an astronomer at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Even though it's invisible, moisture（湿度）can change the way light moves through the air. And in the summer, moisture can make stars appear more dull.
Air temperature is also what puts the twinkle twinkle in the little stars. "Even on very clear nights, some of the atmosphere is cooler, and some of the atmosphere is warmer,, said Tumshek, who also works with the Allegheny Observatory （阿利根尼天文台）.And when the light from a star passes through those bubbles of varying temperatures, "it bends and shifts the light, so that we are seeing stars appear to dance or twinkle,“ she said.
For star lovers in the United States, there's another factor that comes into play for bright winter stars, although this is a matter of coincidence. During Earth's journey around the sun, “there are just simply more bright stars visible from the Northern Hemisphere in the winter sky," Tumshek said. If you really want to see a shiny star, just try to find a burning ball of gas called Sirius near the horizon. At 8.6 light-years away, Sirius is relatively close to Earth and the brightest star visible in the night sky. It is also large — nearly twice as big as our sun and 20 times as bright. So this winter, when the world turns cold and it seems like we should be spending more time indoors, consider asking an adult to go exploring outside. With a warm coat and a clear sky, any night can be turned into a treasure hunt. All you have to do is look up.
28. What does the underlined word "dull" in Paragraph 1 probably mean?
A. not shinyB. not exciting C. not severeD. not smart
29, How does air temperature influence the brightness of stars?
A. By changing the bubbles around them.
B. By putting the twinkle twinkle in them.
C. By varying the direction of the light from them.
D. By making the stars dance and twinkle in the sky.
30. What do we know about Sirius?
A. It can be found at any night.B. It is 20 times as bright as the sun.
C. It is a burning and shiny ball.D. It is closer to Earth than other stars,
31. What is the author's purpose in writing the text?
A. To advocate stargazing in winter,
B. To call on people to focus on stars.
C. To present new research results about stars.
D. To explain why stars are more visible in winter.
Going through social media can quickly convince you that everyone's life is more interesting than yours. During a particularly adventurous week on Instagram some months ago, I saw waterskiing in Maui, and swimming with wild pigs in the Bahamas. Wild pigs! I started googling flights to new places, imagining adventures. Then I ordered food from the place I eat at every week and ... felt bad about not trying somewhere new.
Recent research about repeat and novel experiences suggests that we ought to reconsider those negative feelings associated with repetition. Ed O'Brien, a professor at the University of Chicago, launched a series of studies on this topic, “There's a genera! belief that if you want to seem like an interesting, cultured person, the best thing you can do is to showcase that you're open to new experiences," he says. "That may be true, but I think we take for granted the value of really digging deep into one field.”
To test this hypothesis （假设），O'Brien and his team exposed all participants to the same stimulus （刺激），including museum visits, movies, and video games. Next, some people were asked to imagine repeating the experience, while others actually did
repeat what they had done. The researchers found that on the whole, participants said that repeating experiences was often far more enjoyable than they had predicted.
There is joy in repetition partly because every human mind wanders. Consequently, we miss a good part of every experience. Repeating things can really be seen as another opportunity to actually experience something fully. O'Brien's studies show that people are too quick to assume that they've 'seen all the layers' even in those cases where they haven't. It's safe to assume there are more explorable layers in any experience. When we're noticing new things in any experience, our brain becomes engaged. All we need to do is approach whatever task is at hand by searching for the things that we didn't see in it the first time around.
32. Why does the author mention his experiences in Paragraph 1?
A. To introduce the bad feelings linked to repetition.
B. To show novel experiences are more interesting.
C. To tell us a common belief about social media.
D. To present to us his new, imagined adventures.
33. What did O'Brien's studies find?
A. People were open to new experiences.
B. Imagination was exciting on the whole.
C. Repeating experiences made one bored.
D. Digging deep into one field was enjoyable.
34, How can we keep our brain engaged?
A. By assuming we didn't see all at first.
B. By searching for the ignored elements.
C. By approaching whatever task is at hand.
D. By keeping focused on every experience.
35. What is the best title for this passage?
A. Novel Experiences Enrich Us
B. More Layers Keep the Mind Busy
C. Repetition Makes People Happy
D. Wandering Minds Help One Explore
To help contain COVID-19, one of the most important things you can do is wear a mask in public. 36 . Try these smart fixes for common problems.
