The number of students who arrive at college already medicated for unwanted emotions has increased dramatically in the past 10 years We, as a society, don’t want to “feel” anything unpleasant and we certainly don’t want our children to “suffer” The resulting problem is that by not experiencing negative emotions, one does not learn the necessary skills to tolerate and negotiate adversity Asa psychologist, I am well aware of the fact that some individuals suffer from depression and anxiety and can benefit from treatment, but I question the growing number of medicated adolescents today Our world is more stressful in general because of the current economic and political realities, but I don’t believe that the college experience itself is more intense today than that of the past 10 years What I think is that many students are often not prepared to be young “adults” with all the responsibilities of life What does this mean for college faculty and staff? We are required to assist in the basic parenting of these students the student who complains that her professor didn’t remind her of the due date for an assignment that was clearly listed on the syllabus and the student who cheats on an assignment in spite of careful instructions about plagiarism As college professors, we have to explain what it means to be an independent college student before we can even begin to teach As parents and teachers we shouldexpect young people to meet challenges To encourage them in this direction, we have to step back and let them fail and pick themselves up and move forward This approach needs to begin at an early age so that collegecan actually be a passage to independent adulthood Adapted from “Students are different now”by Linda Bips New York Times, October 11, 2010 Question 46: According to the writer, students today are different from those she knew in that they are A not so academic B responsible for their work C too ready for college D not as mature Question 47: The word “handle” in paragraph mostly means C lend a hand to D gain benefits from A point at B deal with Question 48: According to the writer, students’ difficulties to cope with college life are partly due to A the lack of financial support B the over-parenting from parents C the absence of parents' protection D the lack of parental support Question 49: The phrase "on medication" in paragraph is similar in meaning to B suffering anxiety or depression A receiving medical treatment C doing medical research D studying medicine at college Question 50: The word "intense" in paragraph is closest in meaning to A needing much experience B not serious C not interesting D demanding big efforts Question 51: Which of the following is NOT TRUE according to the passage? A The college experience itself is more intense today than that of the past 10 years B Our world is more stressful because of the current economic and political situation C College faculty and staff are required to helpin the parenting of problematic students D Our society certainly doesn't want our children to experience unpleasant things Question 52: The word "them" in the last paragraph refers to C teachers D parents A college professors B young people Question 53: Students who are not well-prepared to be young “adults” with all the responsibilities of life will need A to be assigned more housework from adults B to be given more social responsibilities C to be encouraged to meet challenges D daily coaching from their teachers Question 54: According to the writer, failure in life and less support from parents will A defeat students from the very beginning B help students to learn to stand on their own feet C discourage students and let them down forever D allow students to learn the first lesson in their lives Question 55: What is probably the writer's attitude in the passage?
