If children aren’t particularly interested in history……阅读理解及答案
作者:佚名 文章来源:网络 点击数: 更新时间:2017/2/5

  If children aren’t particularly interested in history, it’s not their fault. History, while potentially an exciting subject, hasn’t traditionally been treated as interesting a subject as math and reading. They are often given only a glimpse into a historical subject and sometimes that glimpse doesn’t even do a good job of putting historical events or customs into context. So it’s no wonder children don’t often think of history as a subject that excites them and makes them know more.
  But it doesn’t have to be this way. History has the power to come alive if it’s just presented to children in the right way. I was reminded of this when I took my daughter and her friend to visit Colonial Williamsburg. It’s a living museum which features hundreds of restored, reconstructed, and historically furnished buildings staffed with costumed interpreters who tell the stories of the 18th-century city.
  The two 9-year-old girls I was accompanying around town got to dress up in relatively authentic period clothes, asked whatever questions came to their minds, and left behind the trapping of modern life for a day while they discovered that sheep are shorn (剪羊毛) to create cloth and printing presses have to be put together letter by letter. Thanks to a guide, they also discovered much more about the horrors of slavery than they could ever have learned from a text book.
  As a writer, I have personally described Cobblestone, our American history magazine for kids 9 through 14, as a place where history comes alive. Now, I won’t claim that a magazine can make a subject come alive like Colonial Williamsburg, but having read some of the articles did a great deal to helping us gain some much needed context for our trip. If you are planning a trip with any sort of historical aspect, form a visit to a national park to a place like Colonial Williamsburg, Cobblestone could act as your personal guide to the trip.
Of course, for a complete historical view, be sure to subscribe to Cobblestone so you can g et awesome history all year long. Here are some popular family trips with an historical component and a back issue that might help your family get the most out of the experience.
28. Why was the author deeply impressed by Colonial Williamsburg?
A. Because history came alive there.
B. Because children liked dressing in old costumes.
C. Because visitors didn’t talk about the modern life there.
D. Because it is a museum where old costumes are on display.
29. Why did the author mention Cobblestone in the passage?
A. To make it better known to Americans.
B. To call on more readers to subscribe to it.
C. To stress its practical use
D. To help people plan historical trips correctly.
30. What will be talked about in the following paragraph of the passage?
A. The process of subscribing a magazine
B. The tips for a complete historical view.
C. The details of a personal guide to the trip.
D. The introduction of some family trips.
31. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. A Magical Place   B. Living History   C. Learning History well   D. Historical Trips
参考答案: 28-31 A C D B
