Kivalina, an island village in Alaska, USA, is known by only a few people. It cannot be found on most maps of Alaska because it is only 10 km2 . This small Arctic village is home to 400 Inuit people*. However, their home will become uninhabitable because the island could be covered by the Chukchi Sea by 2025. These Inuit people will have to leave their home.

But life now is already difficult. Over the past twenty years, winters have become warmer, the Arctic ice has kept melting, and the sea has been rising. These changes have made it harder to live by hunting and fishing than before. What’s worse, there is no Arctic ice thick enough to keep them safe from terrible wind and rain.

These Inuit people think it is the oil and power companies in Alaska that have brought all these troubles, but they are the ones who are paying the price. It would cost hundreds of millions to move their village, and they have no idea where to get the money. Groups like ReLocate are working together with the Inuit people to save Kivalina, but nobody is sure if their hard work will come to anything. All the Inuit people can do now is to pray the rising sea will not cover their home too soon.

* The Inuit people are a group of people who live in the Arctic.

I had a horrendous experience last Saturday.

That day, my family went camping near a big lake. While my parents were preparing dinner, my brother and I were playing by the lake. A dirty man appeared from somewhere, and his face was half covered by his hair. He walked to us and asked for some water.

When I gave him water, the bag he carried dropped, and things inside fell out on the grass. I saw a rope, a knife, and a baseball bat. The strangest thing was that there were also a woman’s shoe and a ring, and I’m sure they were not his. The man quickly put all his things back in the bag and looked at us angrily. At that moment, the picture of a man the police was looking for came to my mind. He was the crazy killer! I was so afraid that I could not move at all.

Luckily, before he could get any closer, my mom shouted from far away, and the man hurried off into the dark.

“Terry is a good boy,” Mrs. Kao thought.He's three years younger, but I seldom need to worry about him.

This is a letter by Selena Bieber to the students in her school.

Later Is Better!

Selena Bieber
Northville High School

Do you feel it’s hard to get up early for school and even harder to listen well in the first class at 8 a.m.? Well, this happens to most of us and is not helpful for our learning!

Some studies show that teenagers’ brains make melatonin, the hormone that helps sleep, between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. So it’s better for us to sleep during these nine hours. But here comes the problem. We’re asked to get to school by 7:30 a.m. That means we have to get up before 7, when our brains should still be sleeping. That’s why we’re always so tired and can’t think clearly in early morning classes. No clear head, no good learning, right?

If we can’t change how our body works, why can’t school start later? In this way, we can not only sleep more but also learn better!

brain 大腦
hormone 荷爾蒙
What problem is Selena Bieber trying to fix?
Lunch break is too short for taking a rest.
High school lessons are too difficult.
Classes start too early in the morning.
Too many students are late for school.
What can we learn from the letter?
Sleeping longer helps the body make more melatonin.
It is easier to fall asleep when the brain is making melatonin
Too much melatonin can hurt teenagers’ brain.
The brain stops making melatonin after 11 p.m.
Below is some information from another study.

We studied 48 high school students and found that the students who went to bed earlier did better on their school tests. This is not only true for those who slept nine hours, but also true for those who slept less. And some of them agreed that they learned better in early morning classes.

Do the ideas in Selena Bieber’s letter agree with the information?
Yes, because her letter says it is better to sleep from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Yes, because her letter says getting up early is not helpful for learning.
No, because her letter says teenagers’ brains do not work well in early morning classes.
No, because her letter says students are asked to get to school by 7:30 a.m.

Teacher: Let’s play a game with 3-letter words. The game is easy to play. First, a 3-letter word is spoken. Then the next person has to say a different 3-letter word that starts with the last letter of the spoken word. Anyone who cannot speak a right 3-letter word in two seconds will have to 40. Any questions?

Brian: Yes. Can we try again if we say a wrong word?

Teacher: No, you 41. That’s why the game is exciting and fun. Now let’s try it!

Brian: OK! Let me try first. MAP.

Amy: PUT.

Jane: TEA.

Ken: 42

Carl: EAR.

Sam: RAIN.

Carl: Ha! I got you.

Sam: Oh, no! I forgot it has to be a 3-letter word.
