  [00:00.00]Part B  You will hear a lecture on John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln.
[00:08.88]Answer questions 6--10 while you listen.
[00:14.34]Use not more than 5 words for each answer.
[00:19.70]You will hear the recording1 twice.
[00:23.54]You now have 25 seconds to read the questions.
[00:29.31]6.Why was Kenedy able to attend expensive private school?(  )
[00:31.35]7.How many years did Lincoln attend school?(  )
[00:33.41]8.How did both Kennedy and Lincoln begin their political career?(  )
[00:35.45]9.During which American War Lincoln President? (  )
[00:37.51]10.How did both  Kennedy and Lincoln die? (  )
[00:40.46]John F.Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln Lived in different times
[00:47.02]and had very different family and educational backgrounds.
[00:52.56]Kennedy lived in the 20th century;
[00:56.92]Lincoln lived in the 19th century.
[01:01.26]Kennedy was born in 1917,
[01:05.70]where as Lincoln was born more than 100 years earlier, in 1809.
[01:12.54]As for their family backgrounds,Kennedy came from a wealthy family,
[01:18.81]he was able to attend expensive private schools.
[01:23.96]He graduated from Harvard University.
[01:28.40]Lincoln,on the other hand,had only one year of formal schooling2.
[01:34.25]In spite of his lack of formal schooling,he became a well-known lawyer.
[01:40.70]He taught himself law by reading law books.
[01:45.67]Lincoln was,in other words,a self-educated man.
[01:51.52]In spite of these differences in Kennedy and Lincoln's backgrounds,
[01:57.66]some interesting similarities between the two men are evident.
[02:03.69]In fact,books have been written about the strange coincidences
[02:09.75]in the lives of these two men.
[02:13.41]For example,take their political careers.
[02:18.24]Lincoln began his political career as a U.S.Congressman3.
[02:24.48]Similarly,Kennedy also began his political career as a Congressman.
[02:31.12]Lincoln was elected to the U.S.House of Representatives in 1847,
[02:37.96]and Kennedy was elected to the House in 1947.
[02:43.71]They went to Congress just 100 years apart.
[02:48.96]Another interesting coincidence
[02:53.01]is that each man was elected President of the United States
[02:58.76]in a year ending with the number 60.
[03:03.69]Lincoln was elected President in 1860,and Kennedy was elected in 1960;
[03:11.95]furthermore,both men were presidents during years of civil unrest in the country.
[03:19.00]Lincoln was President during the American Civil War.
[03:24.46]During Kennedy's term of office
[03:28.40]civil unrest took the form of civil rights demonstrations4.
[03:34.26]Another striking similarity between the two men
[03:39.12]was that as you probably know
[03:43.16]neither president lived to complete his term in office.
[03:48.41]Lincoln and Kennedy were both assassinated5 while in office.
[03:54.27]Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas,Texas,after only 1,000 days in office.
[04:02.21]Lincoln was assassinated in 1865,
[04:07.54]a few days after the end of the American Civil War.
[04:12.89]It is rather curious to note that both presidents were shot
[04:19.16]while they were sitting next to their wives.
[04:23.39]These are only a few examples of the uncanny--
[04:29.24]the unusual--similarities in the destinies of these two Americans,
[04:36.30]men who had a tremendous impact
[04:40.87]on the social and political life of the United States
[04:46.22]and the imagination of the American people.
[04:51.16]question 6-10 according to Part B.
