Teaching plan for Unit 5 book 2 Good morning, professors, it’s my great pleasure to be here sharing my lessons with you. The content of the lesson is Senior English for China Student’s Book 3
Unit 2 Healthing eating. I’ll begin the lesson from the following five parts, the teaching material, the teaching methods, the studying methods, the teaching procedures and blackboard design. First, let me talk about the teaching material. Firstly，let me introduce the teaching material. This unit is to introduce to us different types of band. The reading passage is the center of this unit. It is made up of 3 parts, that is,. The text is the most important teaching material in this lesson, which extends the main topic “” and contains most of the vocabulary and grammar points that students should learn in this unit. Secondly, I want to tell something about the students. Although the students have the basic abilities of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, they still need many opportunities to practice what they have learned, to express their ideas, feelings, and experience and to develop their autonomous learning ability and cooperative learning ability Thirdly, I’d like to talk about teaching aims and demands 1 Knowledge aims: （1）to help students to understand and master the words, phrases and sentence patterns.
（2）to know some basic information about music 2 Ability aims: (1) To improve the students’ organizing and using skills of English as the second language (2) To understand the main idea, to scan for the needed information and to grasp the details 3 Emotional aims: (1) Help students understand (2) Develop students’ sense of cooperative learning Fourthly, teaching key points is 1. To help the students get a general idea of the whole passage, and some detailed information and language points as well. 2. To understand Teaching difficult points is 1. The students use their own words to express their own ideas. 2. The usage of modal verbs According to the analysis above, I’ll try to use the following theories to make students the real master of the class while the teacher myself the director. a. Communicative Language Teaching Language is used for communication. It’s learner-centered and emphasizes communication and real-life situations.
b. Task-based Language Teaching A task resembles activities which our students or other people carry out in everyday life, Learners should be given opportunities to reflect on what they have learned and how well they are doing. c. Computer Assisted Language Teaching Language learning needs a context, which can help the learners to understand the language and then can product comprehensible output, so computer has the advantages to make the materials attractive. Part 3 Learning Methods Task-based, self-dependent and cooperative learning Part 4 Teaching Procedure Step One Lead-in “Interest is the best teacher.” Therefore, at the very beginning of the class, I should spark the students’ mind to focus on the centre topic “the band”. I’ll show some pictures of food to attract their attention and then bring some questions. Question: What kind of food they like? What should go into a good meal? The answers must relate to the diet. After this, the students will be eager to know something about a balance diet and this is the very time to naturally lead the class into Step 2
Step 2 Reading for information: skimming and scanning In this step, I use Task-based Language Teaching method, which can give students a clear and specific purpose while skimming and scanning the context. Task 1 General idea The students will be asked to just glance at the title and the pictures of the passage, and then guess what they will read in the text. And they’ll be divided into groups of four to have a discussion. The purpose is to inspire the students to read actively, not passively. In addition, the task is to develop the students’ reading skill by making prediction and to encourage the students to express their thoughts in English and cooperate with each other. Task 2 Main idea of each paragraph Cooperative learning can raise the students’ interest and create an atmosphere of achievement. Based on this theory, I divide the whole class into 4 groups to skim the whole text and get the main idea of each paragraph. Step 3 Reading for comprehension The purpose of reading is to get the correct and useful information. Students should not only have a high speed of reading but also have a correct understanding of details. Therefore the following practices on Page 35 can help check the situation.
Step 4 Solving difficult language problems through reading It’s important for language learners to learn important rules of grammar and use these rules to solve problems in reality. In the previous process of reading, the students must come across some difficult language obstacles, so it’s necessary for us to discuss and explain. This period of time belongs to students. They can ask any questions they come across in the process of learning. I’ll explain the questions and difficulties. The purpose of this is improving the students “questioning spirit” and dealing with the difficulties. Step 5 Consolidation Language is learnt by communicating. It is my job to create an atmosphere for students to use the language. Here I design 2 activities 1 Reading for comprehension I’ll ask 4 students to read each paragraph, and then do the exercise following the text. I think it’s a good way to review what they have learned. 2 Discussion During making discussion, the students will deepen their understanding of the main idea of the passage. a. Why Monkees can be successful? Give reasons. b. What’s the most important thing for a successful band? Why? Step 6 Homework
Ask the students to write down sth about their favorite singers, band or music and list the reasons. The assignment enables the students to search various information resources, which can widen their view and continue to inspire their enthusiasm of learning. Part 5 Blackboard design Unit 4 Music
Passage The Band That Wasn’t Topic Sentences: 1. Many people want to be famous as singers or musician 2. Form a band 3. Began as a TV 4. They became even more famous than the Beatles Discussion: a. Why Monkees can be successful? Give reasons. b. What’s the most important thing for a successful band? Why? In my opinion, the blackboard design can reflect the teacher’s ability of mastering the text and leading the students to master the text easily. In this text, the design is not easy to write. I write the topic sentences on the blackboard, in order to tell the students that this is of the importance in this class. I want to make the design inductive, instructive and artistic.
