T:In this unit we focus on the great women home and abroad.Remember the one we talked about the day before yesterday?? Ss:Yes,of course.? T:Who is she?? Ss:Jane Goodall.? T:Why did she impressed you so much?? S:Because she devoted all her love to the chimps.? S:Because she was a woman full of determination and courage.? S:Because she was so unselfish that she gave up the opportunity to go to university only because of the chimps.? T:Good!What you said sounds reasonable.When we are growing up we need food to give us nutrition.But the most important thing that we couldn’t do without is the love from our parents,our friends and the ones we loves.Similarly,a person’s success couldn’t leave the love to others.Knowledge is the food that a man should absorb;while love is the sunshine,a success should show love to others.When he or she is doing so the person is really a famous person or such a person can be a great person.Don’t you think so??

S:I know something about her too.She was strong-willed.Lin Qiaozhi’s mother died when she was five but she was quite lucky because her father who worked at a university of Singapore believed in the education of women.That is why she as a woman in Old China got so much education.? S:She once studied in the Peking Union Medical College,London University Medical School,Manchester University Medical School and the Chicago University Medical School.? S:She studied diseases of women,especially women in the countryside.? S:Last year I went to Beijing.In the Great Hall of the People,I saw a copper statue which was placed to honor her and her work.?

chemistry.? T:Right.What about the second one?? S:2.He decided to study medicine.Because he was moved by Lin Qiaozhi.? T:Is he right?? Ss:Yes.? T:Good.The next one?? S:3.There are many words such as busy,hard work,determination,good nature,kindness and consideration that can be used to describe Lin Qiaozhi.? T:It’s very careful of you to have been able to find out so many words.In these words some are about her character and some are about her personality.Character is how she behaved in her work or towards others;while personality is to describe what she is like.Do you understand??

T:We have got the general understanding of the passage now.Next I would like you to listen to the tape and read the passage again.After you finish reading,you should have got the answers to these questions:? 1.1.When the writer was surfing the Internet,what drew her attention?? 2.Was it difficult for Lin Qiaozhi to get a medical training?? 3.What had got her into medical school?? 4.What made Lin Qiaozhi famous?? 5.What were most of Lin Qiaozhi’s stories about?? T:Time is up.Who can answer the first question?? S:1.When the writer was surfing the Internet,a small book explaining how to cut the death rate from having and caring for babies by following some simple rules for keeping babies clean and healthy.? T:How did you know that it drew his attention?? S:He said the book caught his eye.? T:So here “something catch one’s eye” means...?? Ss:It means “draw one’s attention 某物吸引某人的注意,某人看到了某物”.? T:Good.(writes “ sth.catch one’ eye= sth.catch one’s attention/sb.see sth.” on the blackboard)? What about a book explaining how to cut the death rate from having and caring for babies by following some simple rules for keeping babies clean and healthy?What does it mean?? S:In Chinese,it means 一本介绍如何在妇女怀孕到护理婴儿的过程中通过一些使婴儿保持清洁健康的简单 规则来降低死亡率的书。“explaining how to cut the death rate from having and caring for babies by following some simple rules for keeping babies clean and healthy” is the attribute.? T:Good.( writes “v.-ing as attribute” on the blackboard and gives more examples with ing as the attribute) ? Let’s see the second question.? S:2.Yes,it was difficult for Lin Qiaozhi to get a medical training.? T:Yes or no?? Ss:Yes.? T:How did you know?? Ss:The first sentence in the third paragraph.?
T:Can you understand the sentence?? Ss:Yes/ No.? T:Who can explain the sentence?? S:Let me try.This is a complex sentence.The first “it” is an empty subject and the real subject is how difficult it must have been for a woman to get a medical training so long ago when women’s education was always placed second to men’s. The second “is” also an empty subject.It stands for “to get a medical training for a woman so long ago when women’s education was always placed second to men’s”.“when women’s education was always placed second to men’s” is a relative clause to modify “long ago”.In Chinese,the whole sentence means “在那久 远的年代,当女性的教育总是低于男性的时候,一个女子去学医一定是相当困难的,这想法闪电般地闪过我的 脑海。”? T:Good.(writes and explains “modal verb + have been” and “place A second to B” on the blackboard,giving more examples) Let’s see the third question.What had got her into the medical school?? S:3.It was hard work and determination as well as her good nature that had got her into medical school.? T:The next one?What made Lin Qiaozhi famous?Was it her success at university that had made her famous?? Ss:No.? S:4.It was her kindness and the consideration she showed to all her patients made her famous.? T:How did you get the answer?? S:I got the answer from the two sentences—It was not her success at university that had made her famous.It was her kindness and consideration she showed to all her patients.“It was...that” is a structure used to emphasize “not her success at university” and “her kindness and consideration”.So we can see the two sentences mean that not her success at university but her kindness and consideration had made her famous.? T:Absolutely right.Very good job!(writes the structure “It is...that...” on the blackboard)? It was not her success at university that had made her famous.? It was her kindness and consideration she showed to all her patients that had made her famous. Now please pay attention to the boldface:It was...that...This is a structure used to emphasize some speech of a sentence.For example:John saw her in the garden yesterday after noon.We may say:? It was John that/who saw her in the garden yesterday afternoon.(subject)? It was her that/who John saw in the garden yesterday afternoon.(object)? It was in the garden that John saw her yesterday afternoon.(place adverbial)? It was yesterday afternoon that John saw her in the garden.(time adverbial)? T:Please look at the sentences on the blackboard.Is there any connections between them?? S:Oh,if we take the structure away,the other parts of the sentence will make a simple sentence.? T:Bingo.If fact,when we want to stress a person,we can use “that or who” while in other situations we can only used “that”.Do you have any questions about the structure?? Ss:No.? T:So let’s do some practice to see whether you really grasp the structure.? (Get the students to do some practice by emphasizing the underlined part of the sentences.)? At the supermarket I met my former classmate.? My cousin turned home from Britain last year.? I rather than you helped her out of the trouble.? Keys:It was at the supermarket that I met my former classmate.? It was from Britain that my cousin turned home last year.? It was I rather than you that/ who helped her out of the trouble.? T:Now let’s come to the last question.What were most of Lin Qiaozhi’s stories about?? S:5.Most of her stories were about how she went late a night to deliver a baby for a poor family who could not pay her.?
T:Deliver a baby means... ? S:It means give birth to a baby.? T:Good job.(writes “deliver a baby= give birth to a baby” on the blackboard)? Step 5 Retelling? Get the students to retell the passage by filling in the blanks.? Lin Qiaozhi wrote a small book for __________ in the __________ who were __________ __________ get to a hospital easily .It was to help them to __________ __________ their babies properly.? Qiaozhi lived in the early __________ __________.It was not __________ for women to get __________ __________ at that time.Education was for men __________ and women __________.She chose to study at medical college because she wanted __________ __________ other women.?

The 2nd paragraph:twentieth century,easy,medical training,first,second,to help? The 3rd paragraph:a great woman? Step 6 Homework? 1.Read the passage fluently and learn by heart some important phrases and structures.? 2.Read Elizabeth Fry’s story on Page 45 and finish exercise 1.? The Design of the Writing on the Blackboard Unit 1 Period 3 A good example for me?
