2 Cultural information 1 Cultural information 1. Quote O Hare Noel (American Writer): As a modern parent, I know that it’s not how much you give children those counts, it’s the love and attention you shower on them. A caring attitude can not only save you a small fortune, but also even make you feel good about being tight-fisted and offering more care than present.
3 Cultural information 2.1 2. Father The father is often seen as an authority figure. A common observation among scholars is that the authority of the father and of the political leader are closely intertwined, that there is a symbolic identification between domestic authority and national political leadership. The fundamental common grounds between domestic and national authority, are the mechanisms of naming (exercise the authority in someone’s name) and identification. In a patriarchal society, authority typically uses such rhetoric of fatherhood and family to implement their rule and advocate its legitimacy.
4 Cultural information 2.2Cultural informationIn Western culture patriarchy and authority have been synonymous. In the 19th century Europe, the idea was common, among both traditionalist and revolutionaries, that the authority of the domestic father should “be made omnipotent in the family so that it becomes less necessary in the state”. In the second part of that century, there was an extension of the authority of the husband over his wife and the authority of thefather over his children, including “increased demands for absolute obedience of children to the father”.

11 Detailed reading1 My Forever Valentine The traditional holidays in our house when I was a child were spent timing elaborate meals around football games. My father tried to make pleasant chitchat and eat as much as he could during half time. At Christmas he found time to have a cup or two of holiday beer and do his holly-shaped bow tie. But he didn’t truly shine until Valentine’s Day.1
12 Detailed reading2Detailed readingI don’t know whether it was because work at the office slowed during February or because the football season was over. But Valentine’s Day was the time my father chose to show his love for the special people in his life. Over the years I fondly thought of him as my “Valentine Man”.2
13 Detailed reading3Detailed readingMy first recollection of the magic he could bring to Valentine’s Day came when I was six. For several days I had been cutting out valentines for my classmates. Each of us was to decorate a “mailbox” and put it on our desk for others to give us cards. That box and its contents ushered in a succession of bittersweet memories of my entrance into a world of popularity contests marked by the number of cards received, the teasing about boyfriends/girlfriends and the tender care I gave to the card from the cutest boy in class.3
14 Detailed reading4Detailed readingThat morning at the breakfast table I found a card and a gift-wrapped package at my chair. The card was signed “Love, Dad,” and the gift was a ring with a small piece of red glass to represent my birthstone, a ruby. There is little difference between red glass and rubies to a child of six, and I remember wearing that ring with a pride that all the cards in the world could not surpass.4
15 Detailed reading5Detailed readingAs I grew older, the gifts gave way to heart-shaped boxes filled with my favorite chocolates and always included a special card signed “Love, Dad.” In those years my thank-yous became more of a perfunctory response. The cards seemed less important, and I took for granted the valentine that would always be there. Long past the days of having a “mailbox” on my desk, I had placed my hopes and dreams in receiving cards and gifts from “significant others,” and “Love, Dad” just didn’t seem quite enough.5
16 Detailed reading6-7 If my father knew then that he had been replaced, he never let it show. If he sensed any disappointment over valentines that didn’t arrive for me, he just tried that much harder to create a positive atmosphere, giving me an extra hug and doing what he could to make my day a little brighter.My mailbox eventually had a rural address, and the job of hand-delivering candy and cards was relegated to the U.S. Postal Service. Never in ten years was my father’s package late nor was it on the Valentine’s Day eight years ago when I reached into the mailbox to find a card addressed to me in my mother’s handwriting.67
17 Detailed reading8-10Detailed readingIt was the kind of card that comes in an inexpensive assortment box sold by a child going door to door to try to earn money for a school project. It was the kind of card you used to get from a grandmother or an aging aunt or, in this case, a dying father.It was the kind of card that put a lump in your throat and tears in your eyes because you knew the person no longer was able to go out and buy a real valentine. It was a card that signaled this would be the last you would receive from him.The card had a photograph of tulips on the outside, and on the inside my mother had printed “Happy Valentine’s Day.” Beneath it, scrawled in barely legible handwriting was “Love, Dad.”8910
18 Detailed reading11-12Detailed reading11His final card remains on my bulletin board today. It’s a reminder of how special fathers can be and how important it has been to me over the years to know that I had a father who continued a tradition of love with a generosity of spirit, simple acts of understanding and an ability to express happiness over the people in his life.Those things never die, nor does the memory of a man who never stopped being my valentine.12

135 Consolidation Activities- For your reference_2.2 VocabularyGrammarTranslationIntegrated skillsOral activitiesWritingListeningViewpoints for reference:—I think celebrating western holidays and festivals is acceptable. This is an age of cultural exchanges. We should know the western cultures. Celebrating those holidays is one way. For example, from the celebration of Christmas Day and Easter, we learn some western religions, customs or traditions. On the other hand, some western holidays are quite humanistic. Celebrations of holidays such as Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving Day, which we do not have in China, are an advocate of showing love and appreciation to the people who love and help us. Personally speaking, I am quite supportive of the two days.
136 Consolidation Activities- For your reference_2.3 VocabularyGrammarTranslationIntegrated skillsOral activitiesWritingListening—I worry about the craze. Sometimes people are so crazy about western holidays and festivals that they ignore or forget Chinese traditional festivals. Gradually, those Chinese festivals may vanish. Nowadays, a lot of young men prefer exchanging gifts at Christmas to paying a visit to relatives at Spring Festival. Many people celebrate Valentine’s Day while they totally forget in China we have the Lover Festival (The Seventh Evening of the Seventh Moon) which originated from a beautiful legend. Chinese culture is unique with a long history. What I hope is, when we show our respect for foreign cultures, we can still cherish and pass on our own ones. This is our responsibility.

138 Consolidation Activities- Writing_1.1 VocabularyGrammarTranslationIntegrated skillsOral activitiesWritingListeningStringy sentences are sentences in which too many clauses are connected. Thus, they seem to be endless. They would be easier to read and understand if they were broken up into separate clauses. To avoid stringy sentences, we can use division, subordination, combination or phrases.

DivisionBy division, it is to divide the original sentence into several sentences. Division is employed when the clauses in the original sentence are of equal importance.Example:Stringy:He went to a law school, and then he joined a law firm in Miami, and we seldom saw each other anymore.Revised:He went to a law school and joined a law firm in Miami.

154 Consolidation Activities- Listening_ pop1 VocabularyGrammarTranslationIntegrated skillsOral activitiesWritingListeningValentine’s DayPart AFebruary 14th is a complicated but interesting holiday. First of all, Valentine’s Day is not a holiday from work. No one gets a day off. On Valentine’s Day people usually send romantic cards to someone they love. The cards are called valentines. They are very colorful, often decorated with hearts, flowers or birds, and have humorous or sentimental verses printed inside. The basic message of the verse is always “Be My Valentine,” “Be My Sweetheart” or “Be My Lover.” Besides cards, a valentine could also be a heart-shaped box of chocolate candies, or a bouquet of flowers tied with red ribbon.
155 Consolidation Activities- Listening_ pop2 VocabularyGrammarTranslationIntegrated skillsOral activitiesWritingListeningBut in whatever form, the message is always the same — “Will you be my valentine?” A valentine may be anonymous, or sometimes signed “Guess who.” The person receiving it has to guess who sent it. This can lead to interesting speculation. And that’s half the fun of valentines.One of the symbols of St. Valentine’s Day is the Roman God of Love, called Cupid. Cupid is often printed on the card, a winged naked infant, poised to shoot his arrow into a heart. He would shoot an arrow of love into a person’s heart to make the person fall in love immediately, maybe with the first person to come along.
156 Consolidation Activities- Listening_ pop3 VocabularyGrammarTranslationIntegrated skillsOral activitiesWritingListeningSometimes one arrow would go through two hearts, holding them together.

The desk, the bookcases, and the typewriter were deep in dust, but we finally managed to make the room spotless. I hadn’t written anyting for a long while. Now I began to write again. One of my first pieces was about a Christmas I remembered. I was seven years old, it was during theGreat Depression, and we were living on a run-down farm. In times as hard as those, I didn’t think I would get any presents. A blizzard had developed on Christmas Eve,
162 Text2Text IIMemorable quotesand I had snuggled into a featherbed to keep warm, praying that I would get just a little something for Christmas. When I woke the next morning and went downstairs, I found a decorated Christmas tree in the front room, and underneath it, a pair of lace-up boots, a red fire engine, and a sack of candy.“I have seen many other snowfalls,” I wrote, “but for some reason I always remember that night when the blizzard came on Christmas Eve. Whenever I see the snow coming down and hear the wind begin to howl, I remember a dream that came true.”2
163 Text3Text IIMemorable quotesI submitted the story to the local Burlington newspaper — the Hawk Eye — for a winter writing contest and received a first prize for it. That was my first Christmas present of the year. And others came, too. Wanda and I had only a little money, although we had been able to make ends meet with the Social Security disability payments and Veterans Administration checks we had been receiving. But Christmas 1973 turned out to be one of the warmest our family ever had, thanks to the generosity of a few friends, particularly those at the factory where Wanda had worked. We received cash,3
164 Text4Text IIMemorable quoteshams, turkeys, and countless boxes of candy. Wanda bought a few presents for the children. Most important, the entire family was together.The day after Christmas, I decided it was time for me to write about the struggles of a cancer patient. Before I knew that I had cancer, I had thought of it as similar toleprosy — a disease that rotted people slowly — and visibly away. Life with cancer didn’t have to be that way, and I wanted people to know this. Of course, I didn’t have all the answers, but I wanted to show that cancer could be approached with openness, and that dying people did4
165 Text5Text IIMemorable quoteshave something to live for. Although I had read about all the money being spent on cancer research, I had heard very little about the emotional rehabilitation of cancer patients and their families. The void was obvious. No matter how the problem of cancer is handled in a family, all the members of the family are bound to be affected in some way.I spent two days writing and editing the piece. “Once,” I wrote in it, “I asked how there could be a God who would let so many terrible things happen. Now I ask myself how I can doubt the existence of God ... when I5
