第十五周英语作业

一、摘抄、背诵、默写Unit 9 Section A摘记。要求:认真摘抄到摘记本,划出重难点,注出自己的理解读出声音让家长听到;没去家长处背诵过关,家长不要签名。默完后用红笔批改并订正在默写内容的后面。孩子完成后,请家长在默写纸右上角签名:已背已默+家长姓名+日期(年月日)。另外一份空白默写纸返校时带来;

 

二、背诵并默写一篇短文:

       Nowadays more and more people would like to be volunteers. However, our parents and we students have different ideas about it. Parents think we students need to spend more time on study. And we have no time to do volunteer work. What’s more, we might get injured. But in my opinion, being a volunteer is great. We can volunteer our time to help others. I love animals and plan to study to be a vet when I leave school. So I can put this love to good use by volunteering in an animal hospital. Not only do I feel good about helping others, but I get to spend time doing what I love to do.

       现在越来越多的人想成为志愿者。然而,我们的父母和我们学生有不同的想法。父母认为我们学生需要在学习上花更多的时间。而且我们没有时间做志愿工作。另外,我们可能会受伤。但在我看来,做一名志愿者是很棒的。我们可以志愿花时间去帮助别人。我爱动物,我计划离开学校时,要学习成为一名兽医。这样,我能在一家动物医院做志愿者,使这个爱好有用武之地。我不仅感到帮助别人感觉很好,而且还渐渐地花时间做自己喜爱做的事情。

 

三、周日晚自修在校完成一份词汇专项练习;

 

四、认真阅读第十二期《二十一世纪报》,读通文章,不会的单词注上中文和音标,不太理解的句子用下划线标出,做好第一遍“扫雷”工作,为下周的测试做好准备

 

附:报纸原文

Strong start

NBA player Anthony Davis is known for his big unibrow (连心眉). And his talent is as prominent (突出的).

Davis plays as a center for the New Orleans Pelicans (新奥尔良鹈鹕队). The 21-year-old is only coming into his third year in the NBA. But he has already won an Olympic gold medal with Team USA in 2012 and was selected for the All-Star team last season.

Although everything seems perfect for Davis, he’s had hard times.

As the first pick of the 2012 NBA draft, Davis was a confident young man in his first year. But he soon faced experienced NBA players who were much stronger and quicker than him. He started to panic.

“These guys are nice! They can score. They can kill you. And I just wasn’t strong enough. They’d pound (猛撞) me in the post and score like three times, and I can’t stop them!” he said.

He got injured often and missed games. “I had to get better right away,” Davis later recalled.

He started to lift weights. He increased his strength every day in the offseason (赛季后) and put on 15 pounds (around 6.8 kg). At the beginning of last season, the big man was 220 pounds. The stronger size has made it easier for him to post up (护球). This season, his weight has increased to 238 pounds. “It’s going to make me more aggressive (有攻击性的),” he said.

It’s true. In the opening game of this season on Oct 29, Davis led the Pelicans to a 101-84 victory over Orlando Magic. Davis made a “scary” nine blocks (盖帽) in 36 minutes! He is currently the top shot-blocker in the league.

 

Watch out for local customs

TRAVELING to another country is exciting and fun. But if you don’t learn about local customs, your trip could become a nightmare with misunderstandings and even trouble. To help prevent things like that, Teens lists some cultural taboos (禁忌) in certain countries. Let’s take a look and fit in with local culture.

 

US

Americans have a tradition of tipping (给小费). People from non-tipping countries may forget to tip. And they may find themselves in an embarrassing situation. You can tip waiters, taxi drivers, hotel doormen… nearly anyone with a service job. Usually, a waiter is tipped 15-20 percent of the total bill. Also, pay attention when you chat with Americans. Questions like “How old are you?” and “How much do you make?” may be normal between friends. But as a tourist in the US, it is not polite to ask people these things.

 

Mexico

In Mexico, bringing an expensive gift to someone’s home is a no-no. It could be seen as a bribe (贿赂). Something simple like flowers or a dessert are good girls. But you should avoid taking along marigolds (金盏花) or red flowers, because in Mexican culture, they symbolize death and can be connected with witchcraft (巫术). To local people, white flowers are a good gift.

 

Britain

Be careful about hand gestures when you visit Britain. If you make the V sign with your palm (手掌) facing you, the locals may get angry. That’s because this gesture means the same as the middle finger. It’s an insult (侮辱). It is safe to hold off on hand gestures to prevent any misunderstandings.

Also, Britons are known for queuing. From the supermarket to the subway, queues are very common in Britain. Usually a British person spends six months of their life in queues. If you jump the queue in Britain, you may upset them.

 

Japan

You should never wear shoes indoors in Japan. When visiting someone’s home, it is rude to enter with shoes on. Most Japanese floors are covered in Tatami mats made from straw (稻草) like material that is difficult to clean when dirtied. Shoes should be taken off at the door and replaced with indoor slippers.

This is also the same when you try clothes on in the fitting room of a shopping mall. You should take off your shoes before going into the fitting room. There are indoor shoes prepared for customers inside.

 

Italy

It’s actually best to be a little less friendly than usual when you visit Italy. Italian people think making small talk with strangers is strange. As the locals are reserved (矜持的), a very friendly stranger can be seen as threatening (威胁), so keep greetings short. Say “buongiorno (good morning)” or “buona sera (good evening)” when you meet local people.

 

Can it be good to be scared?

WHAT happens when you hear a strange noise at night, or find a big spider in the corner of your bedroom? It often makes us jump. This reaction (反应) is caused by fear. Although many of us don’t like being scared, scientists now suggest that it can be good for our health.

According to Margee Kerr, a sociologist who studies fear, this “powerful chemical punch (冲击)” includes endorphins (内啡肽) and dopamine (多巴胺) – a natural compound in the body that creates feelings of happiness. Fear makes our brain flood with healthy chemicals that excite our mood.

When you’re scared, your body also produces a chemical called oxytocin (后叶催产素). This helps people bond with one another. So if people share the experience of being scared, it can make them feel closer. “Watch people walking out of a haunted house, and you’ll see lots of smiles and high fives,” Kerr said to Time for Kids.

There is also some evidence that being scared can help a person manage stressful situations. Things like giving a presentation in front of your class or performing in a school play can make us fearful and anxious. But these experiences help build a sort of endurance (持久力) to fear that makes us more confident. “You become more comfortable with the physical experience of fear, and so you’re better able to work through it during tense situations,” Kerr explains.

However, it’s important to remember that people experience fear in different ways. What may be fun for one person could be too scary for another. And Kerr noted that it is not good to scare kids younger than 6 or 7.

But for most people who are old enough, a little “boo” now and then isn’t so bad.
