On the first day of her work, Sally found that a class full of problems was waiting for her. Six teachers had quit before her. When she walked into the classroom, it was chaos; two boys were fighting in the far corner, yet the rest of the class seemed not to notice them; some girls were chatting and some were running about; paper, food packages and other garbage were littered around….Just when she was about to speak, a student rushed in and pushed her aside! He was twenty minutes late!
Sally walked onto the platform, picked up a piece of chalk and wrote on the blackboard: “Rule 1: We are family! “ All students stopped to look at her. And she continued with Rule 2, Rule 3… In the following weeks, Sally worked out 10 class rules and posted them on the walls of the classroom. She patiently explained all the rules to the students and require everyone to follow them.
Surprisingly, Sally was not driven out like the former teachers; instead, she won respect from the students. Over the year, she witnessed gradual change in the class. At the graduation ceremony, just as she expected, she was very proud to stand with a class of care, manners and confidence.
Oseola McCarty spent more than 75 years washing and ironing other people’s clothes. As a laundrywoman, she was paid only a few dollars each time. Certainly nobody would consider her rich, so they were all amazed when Miss McCarty decided to donate $ 150,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi.
The money was I … me savings. She could save such a large amount of money because she lived a very simple life. She never learned to drive, and when she wanted to go somewhere, she just walked. She never flew to anywhere till the donation，and in 50 years she had been out of the South only once. The house in which she lived was also a rather modest one her last uncle left her. Only after she became known in America did she begin to travel all over the country. Since then, she had been the subject of many interviews and articles and was even invited to the White House.
Her donation was for students who clearly needed financial help. She herself left school in the sixth grade and had never married or had children. She said to the reporters that the idea of helping somebody’s child go to college gave her much pleasure.

My husband received a letter a month ago from a young woman who had been
student when she was in middle school. She was writing because she
wanted to thank him for having a great influence on her life.
the letter she wrote, “You were the teacher who helped me discover my
talent for math. Before you came to teach us, I had been terribly poor
at math, and had never thought that I would be interested in it. To my
surprise, you magically
showed me the beauty of math. I guess that was the turning point of my attitude
it. Gradually my interest in it began to grow. Thanks to your
encouragement, I made continuous progress in math, and finally made up
my mind to study it in the university. Today I am working as an
accountant at Valley Medical Center in California. You played an
important part. Thank you!”
a wonderful gift to a retired teacher! My husband has received many
letters from students over the years. This one was special, for it
arrived at this time in his life when he is in very poor health.
Sam first got tohis boarding school with his parents, he was very
happy. He thought he would beable to go home every weekend. When he was

He started crying when itwas time for his parents to leave. He was then
taken to the dorm, where he sawother children happy. He tried as much
as he could to fit in but could not becausehis mind was at home. He
started feeling homesick (想家) and wanted to go homesas soon as possible.

concentrate in the classroom.All he could think was being at home with
his family. He had no mobile phone orother means to get in touch with
his parents. He was angry and felt lonely. Hethought his parents hated

high school, one of my classmates, Eithan, was addicted to TV. This
boysimply knew everything about such pop shows as Who’s the Boss?
day Ethan’s mother made him an after in order to draw him back to
hisschool subiects. She promised that she would give him $200 if he
could go afull month without watching any TV. None of us thought Ethan
could do it, buthe did quit TV. His mom paid him $200. He went out and
bought a TV, the biggesthe could find.
In recent years, hundreds of schools havecarried out experiments with
paying kids with cash for showing up or gettinggood grades. All school
kids admire this trend. But it upsets adults. Teacherssay that we are
rewarding kids for doing what they should be doing of their
ownwill.Psychologists warn that money can actually make lies perform
worse bymaking the act of learning cheap. The debate has become a
typical hattle overwhy our kids are not learning at the rate they should
be despite decades ofreforms and budget increases.
is perhaps themost easily annoyed koala（考拉）at theFeatherdale Wildlife
Park in southern Australia. All the koalas there areunhappy and
complaining. You would be too if you were used to night activitiesand
someone kept waking you up all day while you were trying to sleep it
off.That’s right—sleep it off. The average koala is always half asleep
because itfeeds on the leaves of a special kind that makes it sleepy.
reason Jackie andher fellow koalas are repeatedly awoken from their
deep sleep is so they can behugged and photographed by tourists，who make
the trips to Featherdale and an increasing numberof other national
parks for just that special experience. Whatever departmentin the Aussie
government in charge of such things is now moving to make thepractice
illegal，which isunderstandable. How would you react，my friend，if you
weretrying to sleep off a dozen times and some round，furry creature
smelling of grass kept waking you?
Hi, I am Mike. I just went through my firstyear of college. The
toughest part on me at first was the general adjustment.1went to a very
small high school where my mom was a teacher and she didpractically
everything for me. But at the college I needed to know some basiclife
skills. such as balancing a check—book, laundry, and the things you
haveto be able to handle that I never thought of in the high school! It
was reallytough for me at first and I got badly homesick.
thatfirst semester was over and I got used to the college life, I loved
it—goodfacilities, helpful instructors. and a good library. The
Students’ Union organizesvarious parties every week. I also go to
cinemas and concerts, and often spendSaturday nights in pubs and clubs.
thing Ithink is important is to get yourself active in things. I was on
the dance teamin college and met a ton of people that way ••• it was so
much easier to makefriends when you had a common ground.
学校最近组织了一次中美学生交流活动，你参加其中的“大学校园生活”讨论。听完Mike的发言之后，你准备写一份发言稿，题目是“PreparingMyself for College Life”，内容要点包括：
As you sleep in my arms, I'm amazed at howlight you feel. I stare at
your tiny body, so fragile that a sudden wind couldlift you up into the
air. I love this feeling of protecting you and dreaming ofall I have in
store for you.
I intend to bring you up to be brave andsuccessful in an often
difficult society. That's why your mommy and I havenamed you Ari, which
means "lion". It's our hope that you will growstrong and eagerly grasp
every opportunity to do well for yourself and others.
Before you came into the world, we hadspent months imagining what you'd
be like. Would you be a boy or a girl? Wouldyou look like Mommy, Daddy
or your elder brothers? Anyway, we would find outsoon.
Finally your mother's labor came. Andseveral hours later, we met the
first time. I held you high up in the air. Ithen was able to cut your
umbilical cord (脐带) and put you in your mother's arms. She stillhad
enough energy to radiate the love while she pressed you to her face.
And here we are tonight. As I hold youclose, you sleep so peacefully. I
press my ear to your chest and hear yourstrength. I am listening to the
first beats of a lion's heart. Welcome to theworld, Ari.
