I arrived in the classroom, ready to share my knowledge and experience with 75 students who
would be my English Literature class. Having taught in the US for 17 years, I had no 36 about
my ability to hold their attention and to 37 on them my admiration for the literature?文
学?of my mother tongue.
I was shocked when the monitor shouted, “ 38 !” and the entire class rose as I entered the room, and I was somewhat 39 about how to get them to sit down again, but once that awkwardness?尴尬?was over, I quickly 40 my calmness and began what I thought was a fact – packed lecture, sure to gain their respect – perhaps 41 their admiration. I went back to my office with the rosy glow which comes from a (n) 42 of achievements.
My students 43 diaries. However, as I read them, the rosy glow was gradually 44 by
a strong sense of sadness. The first diary said, “Our literature teacher didn’t teach us anything
today. 45 her next lecture will be better.” Greatly surprised, I read diary after diary, each
expressing a 46 subject. “Didn’t I teach them anything? I described the entire philosophical framework?哲学体系?of Western thought and laid the historical 47 for all the
works we’ll study in class,” I complained. “How 48 they say I didn’t teach them anything?”
It was a long term, and it 49 became clear that my ideas about education were not the same as 50 of my students. I thought a teacher’s job was to raise 51 questions and
provide enough background so that students could 52 their own conclusions. My students thought a teacher’s job was to provide 53 information as directly and clearly as possible. What a difference!
54 , I also learned a lot, and my experience with my Chinese students has made me a 55
American teacher, knowing how to teach in a different culture. 36?A?worry B?idea C?doubt D?experience

Brownie and Spotty were neighbour dogs who met every day to play together. Like pairs of dogs you can find in any __36__, these two dogs loved each other and played __37__ so often that they had worn a path through the grass of the field between their own houses.
One evening, Brownie’s family __38__ that Brownie hadn’t returned home. They went looking for him with no __39__. Brownie didn’t appear the next day, and, despite their __40__ to find him, by the next week he was still missing.
Curiously, Spotty __41__ at Brownie’s house alone, barking. Busy with their own lives, they just ignored (to pay no attention to) the __42__ little neighbour dog.
Finally, one morning Spotty __43__ to take “no” for an answer. Spotty followed Ted about, barking strongly, then running towards a nearby wood, as if to say, “__44__ me! It’s urgent!”
Ted followed the anxious Spotty. The little dog led the man to a __45__ spot a half mile from the house. There Ted found his beloved Brownie __46__, one of his hind legs stuck in a steel leg hold trap. Horrified, Ted now wished he’d taken Spotty’s earlier requirement __47__. Then Ted noticed something quite remarkable.
Spotty had done more than simply __48__ Brownie’s owner to his trapped friend. In a circle around the __49__ dog, Ted found some dog food---which was later __50__ as the remains of every meal Spotty had been fed that __51__!
Spotty had been visiting Brownie __52__, in a single-minded quest to keep his friend alive by offering his own comfort. Spotty had obviously stayed with Brownie to protect him from being hurt, snuggling (依偎) with him at night to keep him __53__ and touching him gently with its nose to keep his spirits up.
Brownie’s __54__ was treated by a veterinarian and he recovered. For many years afterwards, the two families watched the faithful friends frolicking (嬉戏) __55__ chasing each other down
that well-worn path between their houses.
