Passage one 
        One afternoon I went to see John Holt, who was working in his fourth-floor 
office on Boylston Street in downtown Boston. Holt, possibly this country's best 
known, if not its most controversial education writer, was sitting on a stack of 
newspapers four inches high placed on a chair in front of a desk cluttered with 
books and papers. The newspapers were yellowing. One was dated February 29, 1980. In front of his desk was a green folding cot, standing upright to shield him from the 
sun that slanted through the windows. 
        “I may not be good at making things," he said, “but I love to improvise," He 
pointed proudly to the wooden splint and tape that held the cot upright. He worked 
bare-chested and wore shorts in the heat; his skin full of freckles, and a fan 
whirred beside him as he composed on his Olivetti memory-storing typewriter, his 
pride and joy. 
        In contrast to so much of the writing on schools and learning, one reads Holt 
easily, and he has become one of the very few education writers to have reached the 
masses. How Children Fail and How Children Learn, the most successful of his nine 
books, are among the best-selling education books ever. 
        This afternoon he was putting the finishing touches on a revised edition of How 
Children Fail (to be published this spring by Delacorte). When the original was 
published in 1964, it all but launched the educational reform movement that reached 
its peak a decade ago before being swept aside by “back to basics." 
        “My first thought, he says about his revision, “was that it would be easy 
maybe add a few words here and there. But I found I had a lot more to say. My 
thinking had really moved on since then. It's a whole new book. Really John Holt up 
to date." 
        By the mid-seventies Holt had decided that for him, meaningful school reform was impossible. Four years ago he began his own magazine Growing Without Schooling. In the magazine, In the magazine, in lectures, on talk shows (after an appearance on 
the Phil Donahue show Holt received 10,000 letters) and in a new book Teach Your Own (Delacorte) he stressed that the best learning environment for a child was not in 
the school, no matter how humane, but in a supportive home.

41.Passage two 
         History was rewritten after about 100 million people voted to name the seven new wonders of the world. India's Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China, Jordan's Petra, Brazil's statue of Christ the Redeemer, Peru's Machu Picchu, Mexico's Chichen Itza pyramid and the Colosseum in Rome have now replaced the original wonders, most of which have long since vanished into the mists of time. Greece's Acropolis and Cambodia's Angkor War failed to make the final cut. The Great Pyramid of Giza, the only one of the original wonders of the ancient world still standing, was assured of retaining its status in addition to the new seven after indignant Egyptian officials said it was a disgrace they had to compete. The other original wonders, all destroyed, were the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the statue of Zeus at Olympia, the temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the lighthouse of Alexandria. Money raised by the New Seven Wonders organization will be used to fund restoration efforts worldwide, including a mission to recreate the giant Bamiyan Buddha statue destroyed by the Taliban in Afghanistan. “We want people to look at the world in a different way and appreciate their culture and different cultures", said spokeswoman Tia Viering.
