"Helen, please let me borrow a dollar," Jenny asked as they stood in the school lunch line. "I have one in my jacket, but I don't want to leave and lose my place."
"OK," agreed Helen.
Helen waited all day for Jenny to pay back the dollar she borrowed, but Jenny always seemed to be busy. " She's just forgotten," thought Jane. " I don't want to make her angry." Still, her money didn't go back. Some classmates, like Jenny, were getting five dollars a week.
Weeks went by. At last Jane got up enough courage (勇气) to tell her about the money.
"Oh Helen, I forgot!" Jenny said. " I'll bring the dollar tomorrow."
The next day Jenny seemed to have forgotten again. During the noon hour Helen saw her buying sweets for Mary and ann. Jenny saw Jane looking at her. Then, she said something in a low voice to the other two girls. Helen felt bad and asked her teacher if she could go back to the classroom.
In the classroom, Helen saw two new pencils in Jenny's desk. An idea came to her.

In order to learn our attitudes towards some things, our school did a survey on us last week. The following is what I wrote in the form.
Nowadays, a new term called SAHDs (stay-at-home dads) is becoming very popular. In the UK, there are 600,000 men who stay at home as full-time husbands. The number is 10 times more than 10 years ago. In the USA, there are at least 1.7 million unemployed (失业的) married men who depend on their wives.
SAHDs have increased in number around the world. There are three reasons to explain this.
First, the bad economic situation (经济形势) has caused the decline (衰退) in men's traditional working fields, which has led to a large number of unemployed people.
Second, the social and cultural progress provides a possibility for such a change in families.
Third, the improvement in women’s education has also given them the chance to show their talents in work. Therefore, women are able to support their families.
According to a survey in the UK, most stay-at-home fathers said the reason for this was that the mother made more money. The survey also suggested the men that stayed at home were happier with this than the women, with 75% of fathers saying they were lucky to spend so much time with their children.

W: (5)___________ So, see you at the cinema tomorrow evening.

Spending just a few hours a week online may make people feel more socially isolated(孤立的), lonely and downhearted(沮丧的), according to a two-year study of nearly 100 families with the Internet.
“We were surprised to find that social technology has such bad effects on social communications,” the lead author, Dr. Robert Kraut of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, said in a statement to the news. The findings suggest that “Rather than encourage students to use the Internet alone for research, teachers might give pupils online group homework to complete with classmates. Local groups might build websites that allow neighbors to discuss local affairs(地方事务).”
“Before the technology develops and can be really more beneficial, people should control(控制) their wishes to use much of the Internet,” Dr. Kraut and other experts advise. In order to control their children and encourage family activities, parents might think of putting the computer in the living room rather than in a child's room, they suggest.
Dr. Kraut also suggests that when surfing on the net, especially when chatting with strangers on the net, children should not use their real names, and that they should not tell the addresses, telephone numbers to the strangers.

My teenage son Karl became withdrawn after his father died. As a single parent, I tried to do my best to talk to him. But the more I tried, the more he pulled away. When his report card arrived during his junior year, it said that he had been absent 95 times from classes and had six failing grades for the year. In this way he would never graduate. I sent him to the school adviser, and I even begged him. Nothing worked.
One night I was at work when I got a phone call. A man introduced himself as the headmaster. “I want to talk to you about Karl's absences.” Before he could say another word I choked up (哽咽) and said sadly, “I love my son. I’ve tried everything to get Karl to go back to school and nothing has worked. It's out of my hands.” For a moment there was silence on the other end of the line. The headmaster seriously said, “Thank you for your time.” and hung up.
Karl's next report card showed a marked improvement in his grades. He was even on the list of the best students at school. In his fourth year, I attended a parent-teacher meeting. I noticed that his teachers were surprised at the way he had turned himself around. On our way home, he said, “Mum, remember that call from the headmaster last year?” I nodded. “That was me. I thought I'd play a joke but when I heard what you said, it really hit me how much I was hurting you. That's when I knew I had to make you proud. “
