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 place of American women in written histories.
  • The "great women" approach to history used by American historians.
  • The keen sense of history shown by American women.
  • The role of literature in early American histories.

The word "they" in the second paragraph refers to ______.

  • efforts
  • authors
  • counterparts
  • sources

In the first paragraph, Bradstreet, Warren, and Adams are mentioned to show that even the contributions of outstanding women were ignored.

Women's history materials in the Elizabeth and Arthur Schlesinger Library and the Sophia Smith Collection provided valuable information for nineteenth-century historical researchers.

In the last paragraph, the author mentions activists for women's rights as possible roles of nineteenth- century "great women".

According to the 2nd paragraph, the sources of information the writers were based on were not necessarily accurate, which is the weakness in nineteenth-century histories.

Read the passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks.

Environmental Concerns

          Earth is the only place we know of in the universe that can support human life. human activities are making the planet less fit to live on. As the western world carries on consuming two-thirds of the world's resources while half of the world's population do so just to stay we are rapidly destroying the only resource we have by which all people can survive and prosper. Everywhere fertile soil is built on or washed into the sea. Renewable resources are exploited so much that they will never be able to recover completely. We discharge pollutants into the atmosphere without any thought of the consequences. As a , the planet's ability to support people is being reduced at the very time when rising human numbers and consumption are making increasingly heavy demands on it.

        The Earth's natural resources are there for us to use. We need food, water, air, energy, medicines, warmth, shelter and minerals to us fed, comfortable, healthy and active. If we are sensible in how we use the resources they will last indefinitely. But if we use them wastefully and excessively they will soon and everyone will suffer.
