Have you ever been cycling(騎自行車)? This spring my elder brother and I 1.(spend) a long weekend cycling in the countryside. We rode 2.(slow) along the road because we just wanted 3.(get) some fresh air and a break from schoolwork. We really had a great time 4.(ride) in the countryside. And there was one of the best things about our trip that made us happy: every few 5.(kilometer) there was a village where we could find everything we needed.
All the local people were really friendly. However,6. the second day, something happened. We were going down the hill when my brakes(剎車) started making 7.noise, but I didn’t mind at all. At midnight we were woken by the noise in the hotel. We were tired8.we set off the next morning, but soon we felt cheerful when the sun came out.
What we enjoyed 9.(our) most about cycling is that it’s simple and fun. I think nothing is 10.(good) than cycling if you’re looking for a break that is active and cheap. Why not have a try?

Could the students from less developed areas in central and western China get the same educational chances as those in big cities in the east Could the children in poor rural (農村) areas develop as well as those in rich cities Maybe the answers were “No” in the past. But now, China is trying to change the situation.
In order to help rural students grow taller and stronger. China’s Nutrition(營養)Improvement Program started in 2011. According to the program, a lot more money was spent improving students’ meals. More than 36 million students from 134,000 primary and junior high schools in poor rural areas have benefited from the program. They are provided with healthy food like eggs and milk from Monday to Friday at school. And the result of a survey shows that the students in those areas are much taller and stronger than before.
It is true that there were differences between less developed areas and developed areas in education before. Recently, The Guideline for Popularizing High School Education(2017-2020) has come out. According to the guideline, above 90%students from all over the country will go to high schools by 2020. What’s more, the schools in central and western areas will get more support to improve their education.
Students from rural and poor areas also get more chances to receive higher education. A special college program makes it possible for more students from those areas to go to key (重點的) colleges and universities. The number will be increased by 10%in 2017.
With the guideline and the programs, we can expect a fairer and more balanced(均衡的) education in the future.

Chip was in first grade when I arrived at his school as a counselor(輔導員). It was shocking to me that he was described as an angry, uncontrollable and evil(惹人厭的) boy. How could such a little boy, after being in school only one year, be considered “evil”？ Over the next several months, I came to know Chip well enough to see that he was neither evil nor uncontrollable.
But, one day, Chip threw a chair at his teacher and was sent to my office. I asked him what made him do this. He replied that his teacher hated him. He felt there was no way to ever get her to like him. I asked him if he would tell his teacher this. He nodded, and we called her into my office.
When the teacher came, ________. He then said that he knew he was a very, very bad boy, and he didn’t think anyone could ever like him. His teacher listened to him with heartfelt compassion. Then she gave him a big warm hug, telling him she didn’t hate him at all and, actually, she cared very much about him. Only sometimes Chip’s behavior really scared her. It was clear to both Chip and me that she really meant it.
I put my left arm on his shoulders and the right hand on his heart. I told him how wonderful and lovely I saw him to be. I praised how special and brave he was to express his hurt feelings.
As I was speaking to him, his_whole_body_came_to_rest_on_my_right_hand_next_to_his_heart. It was a moment in time unlike anything I had experienced before. From then on, I’m pleased to see his behavior improved through the rest of school years.
A child’s mind is clear and sensitive(敏感的). He receives whatever others say without protection. It is as easy to consider someone hopeless as it is to consider him able in his own special way.

Happy birthday! You are now the proud owner of an iPhone. You are a good and responsible 14-year-old boy and you can have this gift. But with the acceptance of this gift come some rules. Please read through the following list of rules. I hope that you understand it is my job to help you become a well-behaved, healthy young man. If you fail to follow the rules, we will stop you from using it.
①If it rings, answer it. It is a phone. Say hello, and use your manners(禮貌). Do answer the phone if the screen reads “Mom” or “Dad”．
②It does not go to school with you. Have a conversation with your friends in person. That’s an important life skill. But field trips and after-school activities will need special consideration(深思)．
③If it falls into the toilet, drops on the ground or disappears into thin air, you should pay for the repair costs or a new one. Accidents will happen, so you should be prepared.
④Turn it off, silence it or put it away in public, especially in a cinema. You are not a rude person, so do not allow your new toy to change that.
⑤Leave your phone at home sometimes. It is not alive, nor is it an extension(延伸) of your body. Learn to live without it. Be bigger and more powerful than FOMO—fear of missing out.
⑥________. See the world happening around you. Look out of a window. Listen to the birds. Take a walk.
If you mess up, I will take away your phone. We will sit down and talk about it. We will start over again. You and I, we are always learning. I am always in your team.

Dear Sunday Globe，
I am writing to tell you about your article Smartphones Make Life Easier in last Sunday’s newspaper. You did an excellent job explaining the good points of smartphones, but you didn’t talk about their bad points at all. So, I hope you’ll let me give your readers some advice on smartphone etiquette(禮儀)．
The first point I’d like to address is loudness. When you talk on your smartphone in public, please don’t shout. In fact, the microphones in smartphones are very sensitive(靈敏的). So, you can be heard even if you speak quietly.
Another point is about personal space. I don’t think it is polite to make calls in small spaces full of people. This makes others uncomfortable and forces them to listen to your personal business. What’s worse, it stops many face-to-face conversations from ever beginning.
Lastly, doing two things at the same time is dangerous. For example, making calls while driving is a bad habit. Pay attention to the road! Similarly, when staying with your friends, turn off your smartphone and enjoy their company.
1.Amber Jala wrote the letter to ________．
A. find a good job

3.What can we learn from the last paragraph?

B. It is easy to start a company with others.

Mind maps are a great way of showing a picture of information.They work very well in all kinds of learning.Here is an example to show us how to draw a mind map.
1Draw a circle and write the word subject in.
2Brainstorm some word groups and think of headings for each one．For example：
3Draw short lines from the center circle outwards．Add more circles and write the new word groups inside．Then try to draw more lines and circles for more sub-groups(從屬詞群)．
More words,more lines and circles.
To make the mind map even better，use color to show important ideas or parts of the map．
