From the very ng of school we make books d rg a constt source of possible failure d public humiliation. childr are little we make t read aloud, before the teacher d other childr, so that we be sure they "ow" all the words they are rg. This s that they don't ow a word, they are gog to make a mistake, right front of everyone. After havg taught fifth-grade classes for four years, I decided to try at all costs to rid t of their fear d dislike of books, d to get t to read ofter d more advturously.
One day soon after school had started, I said to t, "Now I'm gog to say sometg about rg that you have probably never heard a teacher say before. I would like you to read a lot of books this year, but I t you to read t only for pleasure. I not gog to ask you questions to d out whether you understd the books or not. If you understd ough of a book to joy it d t to go on rg it, that's ough for me. Also I'm not gog to ask you what words . "
The childr sat stunned d st. Was this a teacher tg? One girl, who had just come to us from a school where she had had a very hard te, looked at me steadily for a long te after I had ished. T, still loog at me, she said slowly d seriously, Mr Holt, do you really that?" I said just as seriously, "I every word of it.
Durg the sprg she really astonished me. One day, she was rg at her desk, From a pse of the illustrations I thought I ew what the book was. I said to myself, "It 't be," d t to take a closer look. Sure ough, she was rg Moby Dick , edition with woodcuts. I said, "Don't you d parts of it rather heavy gog?" She swered, Oh, sure, but I just skip over those parts d go on to the next good part. "
This is exactly what rg should be d school so seldom is, excitg, joyous advture. d sometg, dive to it, take the good parts, skip the bad parts, get what you out of it, go on to sometg else. How differt is our -spirited, picky sistce that every child get every last little scrap of "understg" that be dug out of a book.

Graph be a very useful tool for conveyg formation especially numbers， pertages,
d other data . A graph gives the reader a picture to terpret . That be a lot more pages d pages d pages expg the data .
Graphs s frightg, but rg a graph is a lot like rg a story . The graph has a title ,a idea ,d supportg details .You use your active rg skills to alyze d understd graphs just like y other text .
Most graphs have a few basic parts: a caption or troduction paragraph, a title , a d or key, d labeled axes. active reader looks at each part of the graph before tryg to terpret the data. Captions will usually tell you where the data e from (for exple, a stific study of 400 Afr elepts from 1980 to 2005). Captions usually suarize the author's pot as well. The title is very portt. It tells you the idea of the graph by statg what d of formation is g shown. A d, also called a key ,is a guide to the symbols d colors used the graph. y graphs, clug bar graphs d e graphs, have two axes that form a corner, Usually these axes are the left side d the bottom of the graph .Each axis will always have a label. The label tells you what each axis measures.
A bar graph has two axes d uses bars to show
ounts. Graph 1 ,we see that the x-axis shows grades
that stuts earned, d the y-axis shows bow y
stuts earned each grade .You see that 6 stuts
earned A because the bar for A stretches up to 6 on the
vertical measurt. There is a lot of formation we
get from a sple graph like this(See Graph 1).
A e graph looks silar to a bar graph ,but stead of
Bars, it plots pots d connects t with a e .It has the Se parts as a bar graph - two labeled axes d be read the se way .To read a e graph, it's portt to focus on the pots of tersection rather t the e
sts bet the pots, This type of graph is most
coonly used to show how sometg ges over te.
Here is a graph that charts how far a bird flies durg the first Five days of its sprg migration (See Graph 2).
The unit of measurt for the x-axis is days. The unit of measurt for the y-axis is kilometers. Thus we see that ,on the first day, the pipit flew 20 kilometers. The e st goes up bet Day 1 d Day 2,which s that the bird flew farther on Day 2.If the e st gled dawn, as bet Day 4 d Day 5,it would that the bird flew fewer kilometers t the day before. This e graph is a quick, visual way to tell the reader about the bird's migration.
A typical pie graph looks like a circular pie. The circle is divided to sections, d each section represts a fraction of the data. The graph is coonly used to show pertages; the whole pie represts l00 pert, so each piece is a fraction of the whole.
A pie graph might clude a d，or it might use icons or labels wit each slice. This pie graph shows on month's expse, (See Graph 3 ).

If hus were truly at home under the light of the moon d stars，we would go daress happily，the ight world as visible to us as it is to the vast number of nocturnal(夜间活动的) species on this pet. stead，we are diurnal creatures, with eyes adapted to livg the sun's light. This is a basic evolutionary fact , ev though most of us don't tk of ourselves as diurnal gs. Yet it's the only way to exp what we've done to the night: We've eered it to receive us by g it with light.
The efits of this d of eerg come with consequces 一 called light pollution 一 whose effects stists are only now ng to study. Light pollution is largely the result of bad lightg des， which allows artificial light to se outward d upward to the sky.Ⅲ-desed lightg washes out the daress of night d completely ges the light levels 一 d light rhyts - to which y forms of life, clug, ourselves, have adapted. Wherever hu light spills to the natural l world , some aspect or life is affected .
most cities the sky looks as though it has ptied of stars, leavg d a vt haze(霾) that mirrors our fear of the dark. We've grown so used to this orge haze that the oral gloiy of unlit nigh, - dark ough for the pet Vus to throw shadow on Earth, is wholly beyond our experce, beyond ory ost.
We've lit up the night as if it were unoccupied country, notg could be further form the truth. ong mals alone, the number of nocturnal species is astonisg, Light is a powerful biological force, d on y species it acts as a et(磁铁). The effect is so powerful that stists speak of songbirds d seabirds g"captured"by searchlights on d or by the light from gas flares on mare oil platforms. Migratg at night, birds td to collide with brightly lit tall bugs.
Frogs livg near brightly lit highways suffer nocturnal light levels that are as much as a million tes righter t normal, throg nearly every aspect of their behavior out of jot clug most other creatures ,we do need daress .Daress is as esstial to our biological welfare, to our ternal clockwork, as light itself.
Livg a glare of our g ,we have cut ourselves off from our evolutionary d cultural heritage-the light of the stars d the rhyts of day d night a very real sse light pollution causes us to lose sight of our true place the universe, to forget the scale of our g, which is best measured st the sions of a deep night with the Milky Way-the edge of our galaxy arg overhead.
50. Accorg to the passage, hu g .
A. prefer to live the daress
B. are used to livg the day light
C. were curious about the ight world
D. had to stay at home with the light of the moon
51. What does "it"(Paragraph 1) most probably refer to?

One of the best tgs you do y te the sester is go see the professor. So hoof on over to office hour d have some one-on-one face te with someone who'll help you master the material d prove your grade, to boot. But how should you have this conversation with the professor? Here are five sider tips about how to make that office hour really count:
61. No need to get all t out of shape about gog to see the professor. The professor would actually like to see you d swer your questions. Believe it or not, he or she is on your side d is eager to see you do well. d besides, he or she has s y stuts stupider t you, so notg you're gong to ask will set the record for stupidity.
62. Ev though you might feel more comfortable gog with a frd or partner, the office hour will go better if it's just you d the professor. You'll get more questions, the discussion will be tailored to what you need most help on, d two-party counication is ost always more productive t coittee work. You frd wait outside for the discussion.
63. If you 't make the official office hours, most professors are g to make dividual, appotts to help you out. If you're lucky ough to d such accoodation, though, be sure you're 100 pert on te. There's notg that ticks off a professor more t g -or herself available for a custom office hour only to d that you don't care ough to come on te. d besides, the professor might leave after t utes, which would make your trip a total loss.
64. If you're meetg with the professor to go over a paper or test, or to ask questions about a particular lecture or rg, make sure you brg that paper or test, or your lecture notes or a copy of the article. The professor doesn't rber the cots he or she wrote on your dividual piece of work-though he or she will be able to recall t after just a brief ce at your work. d if you have your lecture notes or the article d, you d the professor will be able to exe specific pots that are confusg to you, rather t just tg a eral way about the contts.
65. Office hours ost always go better if you brg a few specific questions to the meetg. It's ost never good to start a meetg with eral cots such as:"I 't understd what you said about [ topic of the course]"or"I cou't understd y of your lectures last week."Much better is to come with two or three conversation-starters, about a specific concept, pot, or pro you 't understd. Keep d that a fiftute office hour (which is how long these tgs usually last), two or three questions are usually the most you'll have te to discuss.
It was very nice to get your vitation to spt∧d with you. Luckily
I was completely free t, so I'll to say "yes". I'll arrive Bristol at around 8:00 p.
