Early childhood education primarily focuses on learning through playing to develop the child's physical, sensory, communicational and social development.Early childhood education has become a concern of the government, who pushes poor children to be formally trained before they-are old enough for kindergarten. There are good reasons for the government to push early childhood education. Studies have shown that orphaned children who did not receive good care and education become developmentally delayed causing failure in school, and even in life.Further studies show that poor children who take part in Head Start programs are more prepared for school, less likely to end up in Special Education classes, and are less likely to receive public help or g& to jail. There are also negative parts to putting a child in formal education programs too early. Time Magazine

online explains that the younger the child the less his chances of catching up with first-grade work.n I have personally witnessed many children of my generation who went to Head Start programs become frustrated and bored with school before they finished high school.Yet patents have been sure that the earlier the child starts school, the better life he or she will have, so they Dash to start children earlier. Actually while early formal education of poor children does show great gains in the early elementary years, studies also show that this head start is really a "false start", as the gains are lost in middle and high school years.It seems that environment is a bigger factor on life's success than early education.Head programs have not achieved its original goal m dosing the achievement gap in poor and middle school children.Perhaps it is time to find other ways to close that gap. 66.The purpose of the government valuing the teary childhood education is A.to develop the children^ communication B.to give orphaned children good care and education C.to get the children prepared for the kindergarten D.to train the children formally and regularly 67.According to the studies, which of the following is TRUE? A.Children with good early education* may have a good life. B.The orphaned children are usually unhappy in their life. C.Children without early education can do well at school. D.Head Start programs are helpful to the poor children.

68."..the younger the child the less his chances of catching up with first-grade work." suggests . that_____. A.the early childhood education is helpless to the child’s grade B.it is good for the young children to receive early education C.the early education can help the children follow the grade D.the younger the children are, the more clever they will be 69.The authors attitude toward the early childhood education is_____. A.subjective B.objective C.disapproving D.approving 70.The main idea of the last paragraph is that_____.

Read the following passage. in the numbered blanks by using the information from the Fill passage. Write NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS for each answer. A gap year (also known as year abroad, year out, year off, deferred year, bridging year, time off and tune out) is a year during which students take time off and do something other than schooling, such as

travel or work. The gap year is most commonly taken after secondary school and before starting university. The practice of taking a gap year developed in the United Kingdom in the 1960s.During a gap year, a student might travel, do voluntary work overseas or undertake a working holiday abroad. In 1978, the Prince of Wales and Colonel John Blashford-Snell beam what is now known as Raleigh International by launching ' Operation Drake", a gap year expedition voyage around the world following Sir Francis Drake's route.The Center for Interim Programs in the United States was originally founded in 1980 to assist students in making a more effective transition from high school to college. The gap year has grown very popular among students in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.A trend for gap years is to participate in educational programs that combine language study, home stay, cultural immersion, community .service, and independent study. The high pressure increasingly leaves students of high school tired out and longing for refreshment. Also, counselors are coming to bless the gap-year option, and colleges increasingly are offering a delayed enrollment option as more and more “gapers" arrive on campus with enhanced motivation and maturity-all of which prepares well for their undergraduate years in college. In 2010, gap year travel has increased among school, college and university leavers, as this is seen as an attractive option for future career development.
