The ideas of John Dewey, philosopher and educator, have influenced American thought for over one hundred years. Dewey was born in Vermont in 1859, and throughout hi life he kept the respect for experience, individuality, and fair play that shaped the character of the nineteenth century Vermonter. He viewed his own life as a continuously reconstructive process with experience and knowledge building on each other. By the 1930s, Dewey had simplified his theory of experience to its essence. As the intellectual leader of the progressive schools, he asserted that there was danger in rejecting the old unless the new was rooted in a connect idea of experience. He held that experience is an interaction between what a person already knows and the situation at hand. Previous knowledge interacting with the present environment influences future experience. Dewey be1ieved that experience could not be equated with education because all experiences as not necessarily educative. Experience is educative only when it contributes to the growth of the individual, but it can be miseducative if it distorts the growth of further experience. It is the quality of experience that matters. Thus, productive experience is both the means and the goal of education. Furthermore, since education is a social process, truly progressive education involves the participation of the learner in directing the learning experience.During his long life, Dewey lectured and published prolifically. These writings were influential both during his lifetime and after his death at the age of ninety-two. He viewed his whole life as an experiment which would produce knowledge that would lead to further experimentation. The range and diversity of Dewey’s writings and his influence on society place him among American’s great thinkers. Question 31: What does the passage mainly discuss ? A.

The New York Times is a daily newspaper published in New York City. For a long time, it has been a newspaper of record in the United State and one of the world’s great newspapers. Its strength is in its editorial excellence; it has never been the largest newspaper in terms of circulation. The Times was established in 1851 as a penny paper whose editors wanted to report the news in a restrained and objective fashion. It enjoyed early success as its editors set a pattern for the future by appealing to a cultured, intellectual readership instead of a mass audience. However, in the late nineteenth century, it came into competition with more popular, colorful, if not lurid, newspapers in New York City. Their publishers ran sensational stories, not because they were true, but because they sold newspapers. Despite price increases, the time was losing £1,000 a week when Adolph Simon Ochs bought it in 1896.Ochs built the Times into an internationally respected daily. He hired Carr Van Anda as editor. Van Anda placed greater stress than ever on full reporting of the news of the day, and his reporters maintained and emphasized existing good coverage of international news. The management of the paper decided to eliminate fiction from the paper, added a Sunday magazine section, and reduced the paper’s price back to a penny.In April 1912, the paper took many risks to report every aspect of the sinking of the Titanic. This greatly enhanced its prestige, and in its coverage of two world wars, the Times continued to enhance its reputation for excellence in world news.In 1971, the Times was given a copy of the so-called “Pentagon Papers,” a secret government study of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war. When it published the report, it became involved in several lawsuits. The U.S. Supreme Court found that the publication was protected by the freedom-of-the- HOC24.VN 6 press clause in the First Amendment of the U.S Constitution. Later in the 1970s, the paper, under Adolph Ochs’s grandson, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, introduced sweeping changes in the organization of the newspaper and its staff and brought out a national edition transmitted by satellite to regional printing plants. Question 44: What is the main idea of the passage? A. The New York Times publishes the best fiction by American writers. B. The New York Times became highly respected throughout the world. C. The New York Times lost its prestige after the Vietnam War. D. The New York Times broadcasts its news to TV stations via satellite. Question 45: It can be inferred from the passage that the circulation of the New York Times is_______. A. not the largest in the world B. the worst in the world C. not the best in the world D. the smallest in the world Question 46: Which phrase is closest in meaning to the word “restrained” in paragraph 2? A. With self-control. B. Put in prison. C. Without education. D. In handcuffs. Question 47: What word or phrase does the word “his” in paragraph 3 refer to? A. Van Anda. B. News of the day. C. Reporters D. International news Question 48: To improve its circulation, the management of the Times did all the following EXCEPT:_____ A. increased the number of lurid stories, even if they were not true. B. added a Sunday magazine section. C. emphasized good coverage of international news. D. eliminated fiction from the paper. Question 49: The passage implies that the newspaper’s reputation_____ A. decreased when it lowered its price to a penny. B. grew because Adolph Ochs bought it in 1896. C. decreased because it could not compete with other New York papers. D. increased because of its coverage of the Titanic’s sinking.
