Summative Assessment – I, 2011


Class - X


Q1. Read the following passage carefully: 

Next morning I had an idea. It was nothing clear cut, merely speculative, but I considered it all the way to school. Then, after assembly, as soon as they were quiet, I went in. This might be a bit rough I thought, but here goes. „I am your teacher, and I think it right and proper that I should let you know something of my plans for this class. I tried to pitch my voice into its most informally pleasant manner. We‟re going to talk, you and I, but will be reasonable with each other. I would like you to listen to me without interrupting in anyway and when I have finished anyone of you may say your piece without interruption from me. I was making it up as I went along and watching them, at the least sign that it wouldn‟t work. I‟d drop it. They were interested, inspite of themselves, even the dark Denham was leaning forward on his desk watching me. “My business here is to teach you and I shall do my best to make my teaching as interesting as possible. If at any time I say anything which you do not understand or with which you do not agree, I would be pleased if you would let me know. Most of you will be leaving school within six months or so, that means that in a short while you will embark on the very adult business of earning a living. Bearing that in mind, I have decided that from now on you will be treated not as children, but as young men and women, by me and by each other. When we move out of the state of childhood, certain higher standards of conduct are expected of us.
