Good afternoon, everyone, It’s my great pleasure to be here sharing my lesson withyou.The content of my lesson is Senior English for China Book1B Unit 16 Scientists at work. I’ll be ready to begin this lesson from five parts. Analysis of the teaching material, the teaching methods, the studying methods, the teaching procedure,and Blackboard design.First, let me talk about the teaching material.
Part 1 Teaching Material:
This unit is about science and scientists. By studying of this unit, we’ll Enable the students to know the serious attitude towards science and develop the interest in science. At the same time ,Let the students learn how to give instructions. this lesson plays an important part in the English teaching in this unit.This is an important lesson in Book One. From this lesson, it starts asking the Ss to grasp contents of each passage.
Therefore, this lesson is in the important position of the teaching material. If the Ss can learn it well, it will be helpful to make the Ss learn the rest of this unit.As we all know ,reading belongs to the input during the process of the language learning. The input has great effect on output , such as speaking and writing . According to the new standard curriculum and the syllabus （新课程标准和教学大纲）， after studying the teaching material and analyzing the rule of children’s growing of mind,I think the teaching aims are the followings:
a）The Ss can hear, read, and use the main sentence patterns
b）The Ss can understand the content of the lesson.
c）The Ss can use the patterns to express their thoughts in the proper situation.
（1） To develop the Ss’ abilities of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
（2） To train the Ss’ ability of working in pairs.
（3） To Improve the student’s reading ability, especially their skimming and scanning ability.
3.Emotion or moral objects:
a）By completing the task,the Ss increase their interest and set up self-confidence in science;
b）Teach the Ss what is "science", put the moral education in the language study.
now,let’s come to the Important points and the Difficult points.
Well, how to achieve the teaching objects better, how to stress the important points and break through the difficult points? As is known to us all,The modern teaching demands the teacher should improve the students’ ability. A good teaching method requires that the teacher should have the leading effects. According to the analysis of the teaching material and the students’learning background ,I will use the following methods .
Part 2 Teaching Methods:
In my opinion,the main instructional aims of learning English in the Middle School is to develop the students’ abilities of listening, speaking, reading, writing and their good sense of the English language. So in this lesson I’ll mainly use "Communicative" Approach（交际教学法）， "Whole language teaching" （整体语言教学法）and "Task-based" language teaching （任务教学法）。 That is to say, I’ll let the Ss to get a better understanding of the key structure of the dialogue. According to the modern social communication teaching theories（现代社会交际教学理论）， I adopt the TSA method（情景教学） and TBLT method （语言任务教学）in my teaching, namely Total Situational Action and Task-based Language Teaching.The former is a "scene — activity" teaching method .It establishes a real scene and the interaction between the teacher and the Ss . The latter offers the Ss an opportunity to complete the tasks in which Ss use language to achieve a specific outcome. The activity reflects real life and learners focus on meaning, they are free to use any language they want.At the same time, I’ll make use of the modern electricity teaching equipments and all kinds of teaching means, it can develop the Ss creativity in learning English.
Part 3 Studying Methods:
Our students are almost from the countryside. They are lack of geography knowledge and the cultural background of those foreign countries.As senior students ,they have a certain ability to read . And the beautiful places are most attractive and easily arouse students learning emotion.As for the learning methods, they are poor in cooperative learning skills.Some students are not active in the class ,and some students don’t like English.therefore, I ’ll have Ss study in a relaxed atmosphere. Ss understand the new knowledge in certain degree through the mental process of seeing, hearing, saying, observing, thinking etc. And make preparation for completing the new study task.After feeling and understanding the language points, let Ss get the knowledge actively by probe study and cooperative study. In a word,we’ll
1.Teach the Ss how to be successful language learners.
2.Let the Ss pass "Observation—Imitation—Practice "（观察—模仿—实践三步教学法） to study language.
3.Teach the Ss how to master dialogues and how to communicate with others.
Part 4 Teaching Procedure:
Step 1 Lead-in.
As we all know ,Benjamin Franklin is a famous politician and writer.But today, we will read a passage about him as a scientist. His serious attitude to science .Let’s see how Franklin made his famous electricity experiment by flying a kite.
In the 18th and 19th century, scientists all over the world made many important discoveries and inventions in different fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, biology and so on. Divide the whole class into four groups to name some of them.
2） Group work
A match competition. Match Column B with Column A correctly.give more examples to make Ss get information.
Purpose of my design:To get to know something about the story of famous scientists.
To have a better understanding about the importance of experiments in science.It is really difficult for the scientists to achieve their goal , and only after tens of thousands of attempts, experiments, thinking and failure can they be successful in their research. Today, we are going to learn one example of them: Franklin’s famous kite experiment.
Good afternoon, every one. It is my great honor to stand here to present my lesson. To make my presentation clearer, I will explain my lesson plan in the following parts
Part One: Analysis of the teaching material
Reading teaching is a very important part in English teaching. New Curriculum standard requires that students should get some kinds of information, enlarge their knowledge, enjoy and get gum, cultivate and develop their reading skills through reading.
The lesson I am going to talk about is the reading part in Chapter6 from Oxford English 7A. It is a story about a crew’s adventure on another planet. The title is Nobody wins. Part One of the story appears in Chapter 5 and students will know the result of the story in this chapter. Students only know part of the story in Chapter5, so they will be very interested and eager to know the result of the story. They may be very exciting when they know the result.
Part Two: Teaching aims
According to my understanding of the material and students, I establish the following teaching aims:
1. Students can read and understand the story.
2. Students can develop their guessing, skimming and scanning skills.
3. Students can build up their self-confidence and learn how to cooperate with others well.
Teaching key point and difficult point:
The key point of this lesson is to develop students’ scanning and skimming skills. The difficult point of this lesson is some difficult words in the story.
Part Three: Teaching equipment
CAI, tape recorder
Part Four: Teaching methods and learning methods
1. Communicative teaching method
2. Task-based" teaching method
3.Cooperative learning method
As we all know: the main instructional aims of learning English in the Middle School is to cultivate students’ abilities of listening, speaking, reading, writing and their good sense of the English language. To use these methods are helpful to develop the students’ abilities.
Part Five: Teaching procedures
（1） Pre-reading activity:
Students act out part one of the story.
Students have learned part one of this story in Chapter 5. After learning Chapter 5, students know what the story is about but they don’t know the result of the story. The ending of part one is that the main character of the story says all of them will be alive. （The main characters were caught by a monster and trapped in a cage）。 After students act out part one of the story, I will raise a question to lead in my lesson: What’s the main character’s plan to save the crew from danger? Ask students to number the paragraphs in the story. There are totally twelve paragraphs in this story.
（2） While-reading activities:
Activity one: Guessing: Students often meet with some new words in reading. When
they see the new words, they are either frightened by the new words or they spend too
much time in looking up the words in the dictionary. It will be helpful to improve
students’ reading ability if they know how to guess the meaning of the words
according to the context. When they are doing this part, ask them to finish it by
themselves first and then ask them to discuss in groups.
Ask students to find the following words in the story and use them to replace the words in italics in the sentences.
immediately, secretly, attacked, escape
1. The captain’s men climbed into the kangaroos’ pockets and no one saw them.
2. After super, Gork went to bed and fell asleep at once.
3. Gork shouted because Nobody hit him.
4. They could not kill Gork. Otherwise, they could not get away.
Activity two: skimming （When students do the skimming task, they don’t need to read the whole story word by word and they don’t need to understand the whole story. The skimming task only requires students to read parts of the story and get the main information of the story. This skill will help students to develop the ability to find out the key words and key sentences to understand the main idea of the story. It is helpful to increase students’ reading speed. ）
Ask students to number the paragraphs in the story. There are totally twelve paragraphs in this story.
1. Ask students to read the first and the last three paragraphs and answer the following questions:
a. What will they use to melt the bars of the cage?
b. Were they free?
2. Ask students to read the story quickly and give correct orders to the following sentences:
a. Then you’ll use it to kill Gork, Captain.
b. Gork, this is nobody.
c. You just had a bad dream.
d. We will use this laser torch to melt the bars of the cage.
e. We can’t kill him.
f. Nobody attacked and damaged my eye.
Activity Three: scanning （scanning is a kind of skill used to find out the main information in reading. When scanning, students don’t need to read the story word by word, they just need to scan the relative part of the story according to the information they need to find out. ）
Ask students to fill in the blanks according to the story.
Gork fell asleep. Captain King told his ________. They _____ from the cage. King shouted "This is _________" and use a ________ _______ to aim at Gork’s eye. The kangaroos did not help Gork because he said nobody ________ him. King and his friends _________ into the kangaroos’ pockets and escaped the cave.
Students work in groups to tell Captain King’s plan to save them from the danger with the help of the given questions.
How did King call himself?
What did they use to melt the bars?
What hit Gork’s eye?
When the kangaroos came, what did Gork say?
After this activity, I will tell them the moral education of this story: When you are in danger, you should calm down, use your brain and try to think of some ways to save yourself from danger.
