How to Improve Study Habits

1 ____________

Some people need total quiet, while others can study well with music in the background. The key is to find a comfortable place and study there regularly, such as a kitchen table, a desk, a favorite chair, a bed, etc.

2 _____________

Study a little every night instead of cramming late the night before the test. A good night’s sleep helps. Bleary eyes and a tired body do not.

3 _____________

In the department store aisles, there are boxes and boxes of binders, folders and organizational tools. For every class, prepare a binder, a folder or a notebook. There should be a place for class notes, handouts and homework assignments. Some of the larger binders can accommodate all classes. It is really a matter of personal choice; just keep papers separated by class.

4 _____________

One great way to study is to make a list of the important information from a chapter and write it in your own words. Copy down any words that are written in bold or in italics. Look at chapter headings, section headings and review sections at the end of a chapter for other important information to add to your study guide. Merge this information with class notes.

Ski Patrol: Always on Alert for Avalanche Safety

When he was about 10 years old, Doug Driskell narrowly escaped an avalanche. He and some friends were waiting for a tram to carry them down a mountain at a ski resort, and they started fooling around. “We were just walking around having snowball fights,” he says. “All of a sudden, the snow layer took off and I ran and jumped out of the way.”

Within five seconds of taking off, an avalanche can move at 80 miles an hour (129 kilometers an hour), so people rarely have time to jump or run out of harm’s way like Driskell did as a kid. But these days, avalanches don’t often overtake skiers at resorts because the ski patrol makes sure the slopes are safe.

As long as skiers stay in the official ski areas, they don’t have to worry. “We control the hazard, so it is unlikely you’ll get caught,” Driskell explains. “We do that by compacting the snow, and we use explosives to make an avalanche move or to test an area to see if it is unstable.” This work can be dangerous, so ski patrol members look out for each other and keep the public at a safe distance.

People going out into the backcountry often carry a special instrument called an avalanche transceiver that sends out a radio signal. All members of the ski patrol carry one as well, in case they get caught in an avalanche while working. The signal tells the patrol where to dig if someone ends up under the snow. Once the patrol identifies the area where a person might be, they push a probe down into the snow. When it hits an object, they start digging with the shovels they always carry. Everyone on the ski patrol has studied first aid, and many are Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) or paramedics, so they can start treating life-threatening injuries right there on the mountain.

An Australian shepherd, a Labrador retriever, and a German shepherd are important members of the Aspen Mountain Ski Patrol team. These amazing dogs are trained to use their keen sense of smell to seek out people unseen beneath the snow. First, they learn to find their master, then someone else they know, then a stranger.

A He luckily avoided an accident in his childhood.

B He dreamed to be a patroller in his childhood.

C He is good at persuading skiers to be careful.

D He is the master of four well-trained dogs.

7. According to the text, which is one of the ski patrol’s responsibilities?

A To ensure the slopes are covered with snow.

B To guide people in the backcountry.

C To initiate avalanches in controlled areas.

D To teach the public skiing skills.

8. The author of the passage suggests that

A masses of snow can move as fast as a car

B nowadays there is less snow on the slopes

C the number of avalanche victims has increased

D avalanche victims today have little chance of survival

9. What does the pronoun “it” in line 20 stand for?

A a transceiver

B the patrol

C snow

D a probe

10. Which of the following is NOT mentioned about the Ski Patrol?

A They know how to help people who are hurt.

B They use explosives after heavy snowfalls.

C They have special electronic devices to find people under the snow.
