 邯郸市第一中学  许蕾蕾

Ultra Violet.

III. Scanning
Read the text carefully and answer the following questions.

To show that purple is a beautiful color that interests some celebrities, and thus leave readers with a positive impression of the color.

2. Which women’s right movements took place this year?

In October, women all around the world started sharing their experiences of being sexually assaulted by powerful men after keeping quiet about these experiences for a long time.

 

 

The roots of TIME’s annual franchise -- singling out the person or persons who most influenced the events of the year -- lie in the so-called “great man theory” of history, a phrasing that sounds particularly anachronistic at this moment. But the idea that influential, inspirational individuals shape the world could not be more apt this year. 《时代》周刊每年选出最具影响力的个人或团体,归根结底是想传达所谓的“英雄造时势”理论。这一表述现在听起来特别不合时宜。但是今年,有影响力和感召力的个体能够改变世界的理念真是再恰当不过了。

3. What does the Pantone “Color of the Year” mean, according to Pressman?
He thinks the Pantone “Color of the Year” has come to mean so much more than “what’s trending” in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.

4. How is the color purple related to creating and balancing?
Because it comes from the mixing of two opposite colors – passionate red and calm blue. Just as Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, put it, [ultra violet] brings hope and an uplifting message. It communicates originality and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

5. What do the following people think about the color purple?
 

IV. Language study
1. But it wasn’t until Ultra Violet – a special shade of purple – was named 2018’s Color of the Year by the Pantone Color Institute that we started to realize that purple could also be “an empowering color”, ...
• 句中it wasn’t until … that …是not until结构在强调句型中的运用,其基本句型为:it is/ was + not until ... + that + 其它成分。
句意为:但是,直到紫外光色——一种特别的紫色——被潘通色彩研究所评为2018年度流行色,我们才开始意识到紫色也是一种能赋予人们力量的颜色。

2. It communicates originality and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.
• communicate  vt. 传达,表达  If you communicate information, a feeling, or an idea to someone, you let them know about it.
• originality n. 独创性;original adj.
• visionary  adj. 有远见的
• that 引导定从句,修饰visionary thinking
• 句意为:它传递了独创性和指引我们面向未来的前瞻性思维 。

V. Post reading
