Teaching plan for Unit 16 book1 Good afternoon, everyone, It’s my great pleasure to be here sharing my lesson with you. 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: 1. Knowledge objects: 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. 2. Ability objects: (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． 1). Group competition 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. Step 2 Reading 1). Individual work Skimming: Read the material fast to find out the right picture about Franklin’s experiment. 2). Individual work Scanning: Listen to the tape part by part to find out the topic for each one. Para 1-3 the description of the experiment Para 4 Para 5-6 the equipment of the experiment the steps of the experiment
Purpose of my design: Enable students to understand the given material better using different reading skills . To present Sample A by CAI （电脑辅助教学）is
much easier for the Ss to learn and grasp the meanings. CAI can provide a real situation with its sound and picture and it makes the relationships between the Ss better. In this course, Ss can understand the main contents of this dialogue and get the key points by following the example. Step 3 Practice 1). Class work With all the equipment ready ( a handkerchief made of silk, two pieces of light wood, strings, a sharp piece of metal, a key, a silk ribbon ), one student acts as the host to conduct two students how to make a kite as the one made by Franklin. 2). Individual work After that, all the students try to tell how to make such a kite in their own words with the help of the pictures on the screen.
Step4 Further understanding 1). Pair work Read through the passage to fill in the blanks in the form in pairs. 2). Class work Listen to some sentences to judge whether they are true or false. Purpose of my design: “Task-based” teaching method is used here to develop the Ss’ ability of communication and also their ability of co-operation will be well trained. Tell the Ss we should be polite and take good care of our things. We should love our life. I think proper competition can arouse the Ss’ interest in English learning. If the Ss can finish this task well, they will benefit a lot in their spoken English. By this step, it achieved the teaching aim of understanding and talking the dialogue of this lesson. Step 5 Post-reading
1). Pair work Franklin was doing the experiment with his little son, and he was a bit curious about what his father was doing. On the other hand, many people were watching Franklin doing the experiment. Divide the class into two groups to make a dialogue in pairs, one is between Franklin and his son ,the other Franklin and a person watching the experiment. 2). Group work let Ss read the passage carefully and answer the question: Discuss the following questions in groups: Students make a conclusion of de process of Franklin’s experiment and retell the tips of doing the experiment。let Ss find out the keys of the exercises after their reading. Purpose of my design: Most Ss can take their parts in the activities, especially for the Ss who have trouble in English study. In the group activities, they can speak a little English. Without doubt, this will encourage them to speak English. In fact, it is a kind of demand of human being. Suhuomulinsiji （苏霍穆林斯基） says:“In one’s mind, there is always a kind of deeply rooted demand, that is the
hope to feel oneself a finder and explorer. In Ss’ spirits, such demand is specially strong.”This step also leads to the emotion objective of this lesson, that is to have moral education in this step. Step4 Homework. Summarize the whole lesson, and arrange the homework. 1.Do the exercises in the workbook. Check the mastering of knowledge of this lesson. 2.Ask Ss to interview their friends asking the price and size of their clothing and make records of the information. Purpose of my design: I think homework is so important that the Ss should speak English as much as they can in class or after class. It is necessary for the Ss to do some exercises after class to master the knowledge they learned. This content is an extension of the previous lesson, to meet the needs of increasing communicating demand of some Ss. Part 5 Blackboard Design. Anyway, the teaching of this lesson aims to develop not only the Ss' language technical abilities, but also the various intelligence by gathering teaching
methods. Purpose of my design: 1、Make the students be free to talk about social behaviors 2、Understand the reading passage and can talk more about teamwork. 3、Improve the students’ reading and writing skills. As teachers, to make our English classrooms shine with vitality, we are laid with heavy burden, and we still have long way to go. Deal with the language points. Ask the students to pick out the useful expression from the text, give them more examples, and do some exercises to practice the language points. Above is the lecture notes of my lesson. Thank you very much!
