Deal with Warming up. Play some videos of people with disabilities for students to watch. Then ask them to discuss what the disabilities are and what difficulties they have to overcome in daily life. T: Good morning /afternoon, class! Ss: Good morning/ afternoon, Mr. /Ms… T: In this class we are going to learn about disabilities and the life of the disabled. First let’s watch some short videos. Then discuss in groups what the disabilities are and what difficulties they have to overcome in daily life. After the discussion, Teacher will present the four pictures on Page 1 to students. T: Quite right. Disabilities can be visible or invisible. People with invisible disabilities don’t look disabled. Depression, sleep disorders and learning difficulty are invisible disabilities. No matter what disability one has, life is not easy. They have many difficulties to overcome, but please keep in mind they can also live well, even achieve great success. Now look at the pictures, how do they look? Ss: They look happy and satisfied. They are smiling. T: Yes, they are. But all of them are disabled. Can you guess what their disability might be? S1: … S2: … …… T: OK, please remember there are many disabled people in the world. They are part of
the world. They also have rights to enjoy life. Would you like to learn more about them and try to do something for them? Here is a website “Family village”. From here we can learn some positive stories about the disabled. Step II Pre-reading
Ask students to read the pre-reading carefully and find out the purpose of the website. Then show the suggested answer on the PowerPoint. Suggest answer: 1. To give ordinary young people with a disability the chance to share their stories with others. 2. To inspire other disabled people. 3. To get non-disabled people to understand more about how challenging life can be for people with disabilities. Step III Reading
Deal with the reading part. Scanning Ask the students to scan the text and find problems Marty have in his life and what he does in spite of his disability. T: First I’d like you to do the scanning and then fill in the chart with the information you get from the text. After you have finished, please compare with your partner. Several minutes later, students compare their information with each other in groups. Then check the answer with the whole class. T: From this chart we can have a clear image of Marty. What kind of person is Marty? You may discuss in groups. You may refer to the adjectives on the PowerPoint. Show some suggested adjectives on the PowerPoint. brave, unlucky, weak, clumsy, strong-minded, optimistic, happy, independent, stupid T: Ok. You are right. Though Marty has a muscle disease, which causes many difficulties to his life, he still lives well. He is living a busy and satisfying life. He is very optimistic. Then continue to discuss the next two questions on Page3. Deal with the next two questions in the same way. Suggested answers:
1. I think Marty is very optimistic. He is strong and independent. He has learned to enjoy life. 2. I think when others make fun of him or feel sorry for him, he may feel hurt and get annoyed. 3. Maybe at the beginning I will feel very low and disappointed, but Marty’s story will encourage me to overcome the difficulties. I will learn to adapt to the disability and try to live a positive and satisfying life. Careful reading Ask students to read the text carefully and then finish Ex3 on Page 4. T: Now let’s read the text again and try to sum up the main idea of each paragraph. Several minutes later check the answers with the whole class. Suggested answers: Paragraph 1: I have a muscle disease, which is very unusual. Paragraph 2: No one knows how the disease develops. Paragraph 3: The difficulties I have in daily life. Paragraph 4: My fellow students have begun to accept me for who I am. Paragraph 5 All in all, I have a good life. Paragraph 6: People with disabilities can also live well. T: Now let’s read Paragraph 4-6 again. Then we will deal with Ex4 on Page 4. Please think actively. Then we will check the answers together. Suggested answers: 1. He has a busy life and has many hobbies. When he is well, he goes to the movies and football matches with his friends. He keeps pets. He spends a lot of time to look after his pets and he also gets a lot of enjoyment out of his pets. He also has a lot of study to do. 2. Don’t feel sorry for the disabled or make fun of them, and don’t ignore them either. Just accept them for who they are and give them encouragement to live a good life as non-disabled people. 3. Because Marty is strong-minded and independent. His efforts have gained his fellow students’ respect and understanding. So they have learned to accept him for
who he is. Summary Ask students to work together to write a mini biography for Marty according to the text. T: Now we’ve finished Marty’s story. Now it’s time for you to work in groups and write a mini biography for him. My Mini bio Name: Status: Health: Interests and Hobbies: Ambition: Motto:

Explanation During this procedure Teacher will play the tape for students. Students will underline the difficult sentences. After listening to the tape, Teacher will explain the text and deal with language problems. T: Now we will deal with some difficult language focuses. Now I will play the recording of the text for you. Please make a mark where you have difficulties. After listening to the tape, explain the difficult sentences to students. Before explaining the difficult points, students are asked to refer to the notes to the text on Page86-87. T: Do you have any difficulties with the text？ S1:Could you please explain the sentence to us：I have learned to adapt to my disability. T: Before he developed the disease, he could run or climb the stairs as quickly as other people. But after he had the disease, he becomes very weak, so he cannot run very fast. It takes time for him to get used to slow pace. Besides this the disease has brought many other difficulties to him, he has to get used to living with the disease. So we can understand it like this: I have got used to living with the disease. Do you have any other questions? Ss: No. T: This is a very inspiring story. From Marty’s story, what have you learned from? S1: We should be patient with people with disabilities. We shouldn’t get annoyed just because they are slow. S2: We shouldn’t feel sorry for them. That might hurt them. S3: We should help them in a clever way. S4: We should encourage them when they feel down. …… S8: Just having a disability doesn’t mean your life is not satisfying. T: I’m very glad all of you have learned something from the story. Please remember everyone can live well even if he has a disability.
