At last, check the answers with the whole class. T: Today we’re going to learn about suffixes. Do you know what a suffix is? S1: A suffix is a particle, which is added to the end of a root. T: Good. Do you know anything more about it? S2: Generally, suffixes do not change the meaning of the root, but its part of speech. e.g. lead (v.)→leadership (n.) ill (adj.) → illness (n.)
S3: Although each suffix has its own meaning, it can’t be used separately without the root. S4: However, some suffixes add new meanings to the newly formed words. e.g. meaning → meaningless think → thinker
T: Very good! Now who’d like to share your collected suffixes with us? Ss: The following are some of the most commonly used suffixes. 1. Suffixes used as a noun signifier Verb read act train build Adjective Suffix -er -or -ee -ing Noun reader actor trainee building

Teaching methods 教学方法 Comparing and practice. Teaching aids 教具准备 A projector, a computer and a blackboard. Teaching procedures & ways 教学过程与方式
Step Ⅰ Revision Check the homework. Step Ⅱ Presentation At first, get the students to know what a noun clause is and what role it plays in the sentences. Then, discuss noun clauses as objects. Next, give them an example to show what are Noun Clauses and in what situations they should use them. At last show them the sentence structures of the Noun Clauses. T: Today’s topic is noun clauses. A noun clause is an entire clause which takes the place of a noun in another clause or phrase. Like a noun, a noun clause acts as the subject or object of a verb or the object of a preposition, answering the questions “who(m)?” or “what?”. There are many types of noun clauses. Today we’re going to discuss only noun clauses as objects. Show the following. He knows that noun clauses are difficult. T: OK. Please look at the sentence on the blackboard. There is a that-clause in the sentence. Do you know what clause it is called? Ss: Yes. It is an object clause. T: Right. How do you know this? S: I think the clause is used as the object of the verb “knows”. T: Very good. There are three types of common noun clauses, which I’ll eventually cover. Now I’d like to show you more examples about them. Show the following on the screen. · That-clauses: I believe that you can learn noun clauses well. ·If / whether clauses: The teacher must determine if / whether they are ready to study noun clauses. · Wh-clauses begin with words like who, what, how, whenever, which, etc: First you need to explain what a noun clause is. I know how I can make you learn noun clauses. T: As for punctuation, the clause determines whether it’s a question or statement. How
do you use them correctly? Ss: That clauses are made from statements and are introduced by the word that. If / whether clauses are made from general questions and are introduced by the words if or whether. Wh-clauses are made from special questions and are introduced by the wh- words. T: Quite right. If the clause is used as subject, we call it the subject clause. This kind of clause is also used as the predicative, the appositive or the attributive. Are you clear about that? Step Ⅲ Practice Ask the students to practice Activities 1~4 on page 5. For Activities 1~2, discuss what role these clauses play in the sentences in pairs. For Activity 3, ask them to make sentences containing noun clauses on their own. For Activity 4, complete the dialogue with the given sentences in pairs. At last, check the answers with the whole class. T: In English we often find clauses acting as subject, object, appositive and predicative. Here are some more examples about them. Now please open your books and turn to page 5, let’s look at the underlined noun clauses. Please discuss what role these clauses play in the sentences in pairs. A few minutes later. T: In the sentences, what types of noun clauses are they? Ss: In the first sentence, the underlined part is used as subject. It is the subject clause. In the second sentence, the underlined part is used as predicative. It is the predicative clause. In the third sentence, the underlined part is used as object of the verb “know”. It is the object clause. Go on with the Activities 2-4. Then check the answers with the students. Step IV Homework Ask the students to do the following. 1. Finish Activity 2 on page 49 in the workbook. 2. Sum up all the conjunctions used with noun clauses and compare it with the conjunctions used with attributive clauses. Then tell the differences between them.

Teaching procedures & ways 教学过程与方式 Step Ⅰ Revision Check the homework. Sample answers to Activity 2: 1.

Where they are going is unknown. Whoever broke the vase will have to pay for it. The Toronto fans hope that the Blue Jays will win again. 2.
