Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)
Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)
A sketch of Jane Austen by her sister Cassandra:
Jane Austen was an English novelist whose books, set among the English middle and upper classes, are notable for their wit, social observation and insights into the lives of early 19th century women.
Jane Austen was born on 16 December 1775 in the village of Steventon in Hampshire. She was one of eight children of a clergyman and grew up in a close-knit family. She began to write as a teenager. In 1801 the family moved to Bath. After the death of Jane’s father in 1805, Jane, her sister Cassandra and their mother moved several times before eventually settling in Chawton, near Steventon.
Jane’s brother Henry helped her negotiate with a publisher and her first novel, ‘Sense and Sensibility’, appeared in 1811. Her next novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’, which she described as her “own darling child” received highly favourable reviews. ‘Mansfield Park’ was published in 1814, then ‘Emma’ in 1816. ‘Emma’ was dedicated to the prince regent, an admirer of her work. All of Jane Austen’s novels were published anonymously.
In 1816, Jane began to suffer from ill-health, probably due to Addison’s disease. She travelled to Winchester to receive treatment, and died there on 18 July 1817. Two more novels, ‘Persuasion’ and ‘Northanger Abbey’ were published posthumously and a final novel was left incomplete.

 Austen’s hometown - Bath
Bath is a city in the ceremonial county of Somerset, England, known for its Roman-built baths. In 2011, the population was 88,859. Bath is in the valley of the River Avon, 97 miles (156 km) west of London and 11 miles (18 km) south-east of Bristol. The city became a World Heritage Site in 1987.

Grass may give us energy (P5)
浙江省金华市外国语学校    翁冰玫

I. Warming up  
1. Look at the types of energy below. Which types are renewable energy and which are non-renewable?
wind, coal, biomas, propane, uranium, water, natural gas, sun, petroleum
   Water, wind, sun and biomass (vegetation) are renewable energy, and the others are non-renewable.

2. What are the differences between renewable and non-renewable energy?
Renewable energy is made from resources that are available naturally and will not run out on a human timescale, like wind, water and sunshine. It is also called "clean energy" or "green power" because it doesn’t pollute the air or the water.
Non-renewable energy is energy from fossil fuels (coal, crude oil, natural gas, etc.)  They took millions of years to form and will run out one day. In addition, non-renewable energy can cause pollution.

II. Pre-reading
    Grass can be seen everywhere. What can grass be used for?

III. While reading
1. Read the article and finish the following activities.
1) Pick out the sentence that best sums up the article’s topic.
Growing garden grass could be the secret to solving our energy needs, according to scientists, and we may soon be able to replace our gasoline with “grassoline”.
2) Paraphrase (explain in your own words) the topic sentence.
Scientists say grass may help solve the energy problem, and it’s likely that “grassoline” will take the place of gasoline.

2. Read the article carefully, and finish the True or False exercise.
1) Sunlight and a catalyst can speed up the chemical reaction between hydrogen and grass. F
2) Hydrogen is a very important energy carrier in the age of renewable energy. T
3) The method of getting hydrogen from cellulose using photocatalysis is used widely. F
4) Nickel interests scientists greatly because it is the most effective metal-based catalyst. F
5) To use real grass to make hydrogen, scientists need to separate and clean up cellulose first. F

3. Read the article for the third time and answer the questions.
1) What is photocatalysis?
Photocatalysis is a process in which the sunlight starts the catalyst, which then makes cellulose and water into hydrogen.
2) In what way may grass give us energy?
Cellulose, a major part of grass, is a great source of hydrogen. With the help of sunlight and a catalyst, cellulose and water are made into hydrogen, which is a significant energy carrier.
3) What did Bowker mean by saying “This is important as it avoids the need … which can be both difficult and costly”?
Being able to use real grass directly from a garden to make energy is less difficult and less expensive. This is very important.
