Many of us hold on to little resentment（怨恨） that may come from an argument, a misunderstanding or some other painful events．Stubbornly, we wait for someone else to reach out to us— 1 this is the only way we can forgive or 2 a friendship or family relationship．
An acquaintance of mine, whose health isn’t very good, recently told me that she hadn’t spoken to her son in almost three years．“Why not?” I asked．She said that she and her son had a（n） 3 about his wife and that she wouldn’t speak to him again 4 he called first．When I suggested that she be the one to reach out, she 5 at the beginning and said, “I can’t do that．He’s the one who should apologize．” She was truly 6 to die before reaching out to her only son first．After a little gentle 7 , however, she did decide to be the first one to reach out．To her amazement, her son was grateful for her willingness to call and 8 an apology of his own．
As is usually the case, when someone takes the chance and reaches out, everyone wins．Whenever we hold on to our anger, we turn “small stuff” into really “big stuff” in our minds．We start to believe that our 9 are more important than our happiness．However, if you want to be a more peaceful person, you must understand that being right is almost never more important than 10 yourself to be happy．The way to be happy is to let go and reach out．Let other people be right．This doesn’t mean that you’re wrong．Everything will be fine．You’ll experience the peace of letting go, as well as the joy of letting others be right．You’ll also notice that, as you reach out and let others be “right”, they will become less defensive and more loving toward you．

This is the age of being busy. Many of us live in busy places and have busy lives. Even the roads are busy as we try to get from here to there. Adults are busy going to jobs and taking care of their families. Kids are busy, too, going to school and doing a lot of homework after school and on weekends.
Busy isn’t bad, necessarily. If you are not busy enough you might be bored. But if you are too busy, you might break down. For example, if you have a soccer game that runs late on a school night and you haven’t eaten dinner or done your homework, that’s a not-so-fun kind of busy. We wanted to know what kids thought, so we did a kidsPoll about being busy with 882girls and boys aged 9 to 13.
Almost all of them said they felt stressed because they were too busy. About half said they felt this way once in a while or some of the time. But 17% said they felt this way most of the time and 24% said they felt this all the time! Oh dear, that’s no fun.
Only 4% of kids said they wanted less free time and 18% said they already had just the right amount. But, no big surprise, 61% of kids wish they had a lot more free time. If they had more time, most would spend it hanging out or playing with friends.
Often, adults plan large parts of a kid ’s day, especially during the school year. kids can’t tell their parents they’ll be skipping school(逃学) today to get more free time! But they can tell their parents they’d like to play a game or read a book during their free time instead of watching TV.
The purpose of the first paragraph is to _____.
A. Introduce the topic
B. Support the main idea
C. Raise the topic sentence
D. Attract the readers’ attention
By giving the example of a late soccer game, the writer intends to tell us______.
A. Being too busy is bad for the kids
B. It is no fun to be busy for the kids

D. Being busy may cause the kids to feel bored
According to the passage, the KidsPoll is done to carry out research on _____.
A. How kids arrange their free time
B. What kids think of being busy
C. How many kids felt stressed
D. What kids do with their study
From the passage, we can infer that the writer agrees kids can_____.
A. Spend their free time hanging or playing out
B. Get a lot more free time from their parents

Let me tell you why I have got so many deductions (扣分) for the last four weeks. Sometimes I got up lately. In order not to be late for class, I did everything in hurry. So I often forgot to put all my roommates’ shoes under their bed. As a rule, we should do a general cleaning in Monday afternoon, but I don’t know. Of course I did not go back to the room to do some cleaning. What a shame! What’s the worse, nobody came to help me when I in trouble. I think they are too selfish.
By the way, many of us are always saying the dormitory administrator (寝管员) is too strict with us. As a matter of fact, I have never met such a cruel person. But maybe, she is right. I promise that I would do well than before in the future.

It’s a great sunny day，so it’s time to get out and enjoy the weather.Many of us would like to，but we have projects due，tasks that need to be done，people that we need to see，and money that needs to be made.
What if your company gave you that time off as compensation for the great effort that you gave to the team to finish a project on time？See，when it comes to teamwork，the main focus is for the team to work together.In a “winning” team there is an equal balance of people who have unique strengths and weaknesses.
Take the example of the Chicago Bulls of the 1990s.Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball player to play the game，but did they win a championship every year when Michael had played？No.It took a (D?type) Michael Jordan to lead the team and control the outcome.It took a(n) (I?type) wild and energetic Dennis Rodman to keep the team fun and interesting.It took (S?types) Scottie Pippin，Bill Cartwright，and John Paxson to support the team.And it took the (C?type) analytical mind of Coach Phil Jackson to create a foundation for the players to play on.In the end they，the Chicago Bulls，were able to win six championships within eight years.
What is your team made up of？All Jordans？All Jacksons？All Rodmans？Or all Pippins，Cartwrights and Paxsons？It is you who can choose who’s on your team.Try finding the right people for the right job，and you will have a “winning” team every time!

A good friend of mine lives about one hour away. I called her last week and found out that she wasn’t doing well at work, which would make the following year a little more difficult. After hanging up the phone, I decided to offer to help her, but I couldn’t think of what to do. However, opportunities come themselves when you’re not even looking for.
A few days later, some friends and I happened to be eating desserts at a restaurant in her city. As we were looking at the menu, I turned to my friends and asked them if they wanted to join in a game. After explaining the idea, they decided to take 15 minutes to make someone’s day. We ordered an extra dessert, wrote a note, added a smile card and were off. However, there was one problem: I had no idea where she was.
Therefore, it was time to rely on the network. I called up a friend and got him to call her to see what she was doing and found out that she was at work.
We drove to her work place and one of my friends became the delivery(投递)person.He went in to look for my friend, found her, didn’t really answer her questions and walked out, saying he’s simply a delivery person.
He ran out quickly and I bent down as we drove by to make sure she didn’t follow him out. Afterwards, all of us had this huge smile on our faces. We felt as if we had just planned a surprise party or something.

Holidays are really important. Many of us will have childhood memories of summer holidays where we were taken away from home to experience new environments and learn in different ways.
But holidays are expensive and, for those on low wages or living on benefits, they are often unobtainable. Even the cheapest holidays require travel and other additional costs that are difficult for many families to meet.
For working parents, the long summer break can be a very difficult problem for childcare. When an annual leave allowance amounts to only five weeks, there is a need to spread this across the year. Couples can find themselves taking leave in turn in order to care for children who are on holiday. For some, this makes even an affordable family holiday difficult.
The schools that I visit in Nottingham are full of experienced staff committed to giving our children a caring and inspiring learning environment. The number of children receiving free school meals is quite large in Nottingham and many schools have breakfast clubs to make sure that children get a healthy start to the day. Most schools undertake programs of group or individual educational support. Schools also have an important role in sofeguaiding children's welfare through the ongoing touch and support with their pupils. During the long summer holidays, much of this is missed.
While teachers are holidaying in the UK, many of their pupils spend the whole six weeks on the street where they live. The lack of free school meals for six weeks can result in pressure on a family budget and an inability to afford the inspiring experiences that help children to continue their learning.
In setting out its plans for a five-term year, Nottingham City Council (委员会)is seeking to reduce the summer holiday down lo four and a half weeks, with a more balanced five terms of roughly eight weeks, each followed by a two-week break. We believe this will give real “down time" for school staff and pupils alike but will be short enough not to cause a real break in learning.
We acknowledge that this change may be difficult for some school staff, particularly whose own children are educated in other authorities. However, this must be weighed against the benefits for city children for whom we all have the greatest duty of care.
1.The passage is probably written by .
A. an experienced teacher B. a city council member
C. an inspired student D. a working parent
2.The underlined word "they" in the second paragraph refers to " ’.
A. environments B. wages C. holidays D. benefits
3.It is suggested in the passage that the summer break be reduced to .
A. 2 weeks B. 6 weeks C. 5 weeks D. 4.5 weeks
4.The plans for a shorter summer holiday will help students_____ .
A. obtain the cheapest holidays without additional costs
B. get a chance to spend six weeks a term with teachers in school
C. have more school days to receive free school meals
D. benefit more from the caring and inspiring learning environment
5.It can be inferred from the passage that _______.
A. some school staff will say “ No" to the plans for a shorter summer holiday
B. the suggested plans for a five-term school year can hardly be carried out
C. the long summer holiday gives teachers and students real "down time"
D. working parents can enjoy a five-week break to care for their children
