1. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) Todd: Okay Monica, we%27re going to debate winning and sports, especially for young people. So do you think that winning should be stressed with sports, with, let%27s say high school athletes? Monica: Well, it depends on the situation and what they%27re training for, but generally I think that winning is overemphasized in sport. I think that participation is more important. Yeah. Todd: Why would you say that? Monica: Well, I think if you concentrate too much on winning, then the problem is, if you don%27t win, you don%27t enjoy the sport, so the _______________ is shifted from enjoyment to basically results, so I think it can be quite damaging.

2. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) Michael: Well, it%27s interesting, you%27re favorite (movie) is a trilogy, and my favorite is a trilogy too, and that%27s the Godfather trilogy, and my favorite is the second one. Simon: Oh, you like the second one. That%27s surprising! Most people like the first one the best. Michael: I like the first one a lot but I like the second one because DeNiro is in it and I like the story of Don Corleone in Sicily as well. Simon: Ah, yeah, flashbacks! Michael: Yeah, and I think that the real conflict in the story comes out in the second one. More so than in the first. I see the Godfather trilogy to be very similar to a Shakespearean kind of trilogy, tragic, I think that Michael Corleone is a tragic hero and I like Shakespearean trilogies to so perhaps that%27s why I like it. Simon: Oh, that%27s a really good _______________. I understand clearly.

3. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) %22Circumstantial evidence is just evidence of an indirect nature,%22 says Mary Cheh, a law professor at George Washington University. It allows you to _______________ conclusions from the available facts, she says. For example, imagine that a man and a woman check into a hotel and emerge the next morning, night after night. %22Maybe I don%27t have direct evidence that they%27re having an affair,%22 Cheh says, %22but I infer rather strongly from those facts.%22

4. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) Making an _______________ is also known as reading between the lines.  The reader must put together the information the author provides and the information that the reader already knows to come up with the answer.

5. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) I actually agree to be honest, because I think if you increase the number of P.E. lessons that students have in a week, it doesn%27t actually necessarily increase their _______________ to be involved in physical activity, but if like he%27s suggesting, you increase the opportunities outside of school, students maybe become involved in a sport that they choose, that they%27d like to do and they hopefully can take it on as a lifetime sport. Yeah, which is important.

6. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) Todd: Hey, Eucharia can you give us a brief history of Ireland? Eucharia: Sure well, I think most people know of St Patrick’s day and that it is an Irish festival which celebrates being Irish. Well, St Patrick was brought to Ireland in 460 as a slave from Wales and then he left and went to Italy where he was converted to Christianity and then he went back to Ireland to bring Christianity to the Irish Celtic people. So, skipping ahead a few years. The Celtic people were always quite unique within Europe because we… the Celtic people always believed in equality between men and women and therefore there were women warriors in Ireland which used to frighten many of the _______________ invaders away because a lot of men didn’t like to be beaten by women back then and maybe it’s still true today.

7. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) _______________ is a reading technique that can help you to read more quickly and decide if the text is interesting and whether you should read it in more detail

8. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) My name is Jeff Eagar and I%27m 32 years old and I%27m from Canada and most people in Canada are Christians, they%27re Catholics or Protestants and my parents are Catholic but I%27ve done a lot of traveling in my life and now I%27m interested in the Buddhist religion, Buddhism. It%27s a very peaceful religion and it has some philosophies that I believe in, for example, it talks about detachment. You should not get attached to money, or you shouldn%27t get attached to fancy cars and fancy clothes. You should try to _______________ your life and have as little as possible. Be comfortable but don%27t have too much. Don%27t have, don%27t be excessive with what you have, and I believe in this philosophy.

9. (potential, emphasis, explanation, infer, motivation, skimming, simplify, structure, drilling, drilling, inference) Peter King runs weekend workshops in which participants turn a pile of lumber on the ground into a tiny house. Four students pay for the experience, and a fifth person pays for the wood and has a new house at the end of the weekend. Most of King%27s students find him on the Internet thanks to a web video series called Stuck in Vermont. On a recent weekend, King was working with students to build a 10x10 foot _______________ in Woodstock, Vt. The 100 square foot house will serve as a home office for a freelance writer and will cost a total of $6,000 or $7,000.
