   Why is culture important and how does it answer the question "What is cultural identity?”? Culture is the underlying foundation of traditions and beliefs that help a person relate to the world around them. It is the basis for any superstitions they may have. It is the aversion to types of meat, or which days you can work on. Culture gives us a starting point when beginning to search for our roots. Knowing a person comes from will help to define how they look at their family obligations as well as how they celebrate important milestones in life. As a person has given up their cultural identity, they no longer can identify themselves with the things that were the most important things in their lives. They lose direction. As time by and they continue to forget about their past and their natural traditions, their identity becomes less and less pronounced.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

For more than six million American children, coming home after school means coming back to an empty house. Some deal with the situation by watching TV. Some may hide. But all of them have something in common. They spend part of each day alone. They are called “latchkey children”. They are children who look after themselves while their parents work. And their bad condition has become a subject of concern.

Lynette Long was once the principal of an elementary school. She said, “We had a school rule against wearing jewelry. A lot of kids had chains around their necks with keys attached. I was constantly telling them to put the keys inside shirts. There were so many keys; it never came to my mind what they meant.” Slowly, she learned that they were house keys.

She and her husband began talking to the children who had keys. They learned of the effect of working couples and single parents were having on their children. Fear was the biggest problem faced by children at home alone. One in three latchkey children the Longs talked to reported being frightened. Many had nightmares and were worried about their own safety.

The most common way latchkey children deal with their fears is by hiding. They may hide in a shower stall, under a bed or in a closet. The second is the TV. They often turn the volume up. It’s hard to get statistics on latchkey children, the Longs have learned. Most parents are slow to admit that they leave their children alone.

What is the topic of the passage?

  • Latchkey children.
  • Lonely children.
  • Children's activities.
  • Kids without parents.

The phrase "an empty house" in the passage mostly means ______.

  • a house with too much space

  • they are from single-parent families
  • they all wear jewelry

Lynette Long learned of latchkey children’s problems by ______.

  • talking to them
  • interviewing their parents
  • delivering questionnaires
  • visiting their homes

It’s difficult to find out the number of latchkey children because _____.

  • there are too many of them in the whole country
  • most parents are reluctant to admit that they leave their children alone
  • they hide themselves in shower stalls or under beds
  • they do not give information about themselves for safety reasons

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Women in the written history of America

During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, almost nothing was written about the contributions of women during the colonial period and the early history of the newly formed United States. Lacking the right to vote and absent from the seats of power, women were not considered an important force in history. Anne Bradstreet wrote some significant poetry in the seventeenth century, Mercy Otis Warren produced the best contemporary history of the American Revolution, and Abigail Adams penned important letters showing she exercised great political influence over her husband, John, the second President of the United States. But little or no notice was taken of these contributions. During these centuries, women remained invisible in history books.

Throughout the nineteenth century, this lack of visibility continued, despite the efforts of female authors writing about women. These writers, like most of their male counterparts, were amateur historians. Their writings were celebratory in nature, and they were uncritical in their selection and use of sources.

During the nineteenth century, however, certain feminists showed a keen sense of history by keeping records of activities in which women were engaged. National, regional, and local women’s organizations compiled accounts of their doings. Personal correspondence, newspaper clippings, and souvenirs were saved and stored. These sources from the core of the two greatest collections of women’s history in the United States one at the Elizabeth and Arthur Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe College, and the other the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College. Such sources have provided valuable materials for later Generations of historians.

 Despite the gathering of more information about ordinary women during the nineteenth century, most of the writing about women conformed to the “great women” theory of History, just as much of mainstream American history concentrated on “great men.” To demonstrate that women were making significant contributions to American life, female authors singled out women leaders and wrote biographies, or else important women produced their autobiographies. Most of these leaders were involved in public life as reformers, activists working for women’s right to vote, or authors, and were not representative at all of the great of ordinary women. The lives of ordinary people continued, generally, to be untold in the American histories being published.

What does the passage mainly discuss?

  • The role of literature in early American histories.

  • They put too much emphasis on daily activities.
  • They left out discussion of the influence of money on politics.
  • The sources of the information they were based on were not necessarily accurate.
  • They were printed on poor-quality paper.

What use was made of the nineteenth-century women's history materials in the Schlesinger Library and the Sophia Smith Collection?

  • They were combined and published in a multivolume encyclopedia.
  • They formed the basis of college courses in the nineteenth century.
  • They provided valuable information for twentieth-century historical researchers.
  • They were shared among women's colleges throughout the United States.
