School is a place that is familiar to everyone. Let’s find out what American students do in school.
An official dance party is held about twice a year in high schools in the United States. When the final football game is over for the season there is a homecoming party. Sometimes, students select a king from among the football players, and a queen from among the girls. Every student can attend and have fun with the help of their teachers. Sometimes, students, called bookworms, to the surprise of the other students, come to the party in a beautiful dress.
The most exciting party that students can go to would have to be a dance party. Students attend it in dresses similar to those of Hollywood stars and the atmosphere is comparable to an Oscar Award party. Since such a party is for seniors, students usually stay up the night trying to enjoy their last year in high school.
In American schools, instead of the teachers going to different rooms, students have their own class schedules and go to different classrooms. When a student is away from school, they must have an explanation for being away along with the signature of a parent. The signed paper is then handed in to the school office. High school drop outs and students being expelled (除名) are not that uncommon in the States. High absences without excuses are one of the reasons why students are expelled from school. American students also enjoy a number of activities out of school like cheerleading (拉拉队), student government and a host of different sports.

Imagine entering a very large building and you have no idea how to get to the office you are looking for. But then, as you’re standing there, a nearly silent balloon floats over to you and speaks to you. It asks you where you want to go. You tell it, and then it simply says “follow me” like a child’s game, and begins to float off in the direction of your destination. It keeps going, as you follow, leading you to where you want to go.
The guide works itself, without any help from any human being. It says hello to people as they arrive in the building, speaks to them, processes their requests and then guides them to the destination. The balloon has two tiny fans to help keep it floating and to provide just a touch of lift. Onboard is a wireless (无线的) receiver for receiving directions from a computer that directs the fans and sensors (传感器) that let it know where objects are around it.
The idea of such a simple robot is one that has been on the minds of scientists for years, and has been mentioned in novels many times. Today the iPhone does something similar but has to be connected to the Internet which is sometimes difficult. This is why this little balloon might be the wave of the future — because it is so much easier to follow!

Reading can be a social activity. Think of the people who belong to book groups. They choose books to read and then meet to discuss them. Now, the website BookCrossing.com turns the page on the traditional idea of a book group.
Members go on the site and register the books they own and would like to share. BookCrossing provides an identification number to stick inside the book. Then the person leaves it in a public place, hoping that the book will have an adventure, traveling far and wide with each new reader who finds it.
Bruce Pederson, the managing director of BookCrossing, says, “The two things that change your life are the people you meet and books you read. BookCrossing combines both.”
Members leave books on park benches and buses, in train stations and coffee shops. Whoever finds their book will go to the site and record where they found it.
People who find a book can also leave a journal entry describing what they thought of it. E-mails are then sent to the BookCrossing to keep them updated about where their books have been found. Bruce peterson says the idea is for people not to be selfish by keeping a book to gather dust on a shelf at home.
BookCrossing is part of a trend among people who want to get back to the “real” and not the virtual(虚拟). The site now has more than one million members in more than one hundred thirty-five countries.
12. Why does the author mention book groups in the first paragraph?
A. To explain what they are.
B. To introduce BookCrossing.
C. To stress the importance of reading.
D. To encourage readers to share their ideas.
13. What does the underlined word “it” in Paragraph 2refer to?
A. The book. B. An adventure.
C. A public place. D. The identification number.
14. What will a BookCrosser do with a book after reading it?
A. Meet other readers to discuss it. B. Keep it safe in his bookcase.
C. Pass it on to another reader. D. Mail it back to its owner.
15. What is the best title for the text?
A. Online Reading: A Virtual Tour B. Electronic Books: A new Trend
C. A Book Group Brings Tradition Back D. A Website Links People through Books

Recently word came that our school is planning to open a new subject, known as Appreciation of British and American Literature. It soon causes a discussion among my fellow students.
Students who are in favour of it make up 30% of all. They think they can know many worldfamous great books in a short time. Meanwhile, they can benefit a lot from reading, such as improving the reading ability as well as writing ability. They can expand their reading.
But the other 70% of the students hold a different opinion. Now that they have so many subjects to learn, they won't have time to read the books, which must be a burden. Besides, they can't grasp the essence of the books.
For me, I strongly support the school to provide the opportunity to read the great books.
