School life in the UK Good morning , judges,It’s my great honor to be here sharing my lesson with you. I’ll be ready to begin this lesson from four parts. Analysis of the teaching material, t
he analysis of the ss, the teaching methods and the teaching procedure. First let me talk about the teaching material The selected teaching material is from the Reading section of Module1 unit of Advance with English. The article is from a school magazine written by an exchange student. After studying in the Uk, she gave us a brief but clear description about what school life in the Uk is like from her own experience.In a word, the passage covers almost every aspect of school life in the UK. After the students read this passage, they will have a general understanding of high school life from another culture. 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. Therefore, this lesson plays an important role in this unit. According to the new standard curriculum and syllabus, after studying the teaching material, I think the teaching aims are the following.(根据新课标和教学法) 1) Knowledge objects A.

To help the students to learn about the school life in the UK and get them to talk about the differences in the school life between the UK and China. 2. To help the students master the new words and expressions in this period. Next, I want to talk about the students. This is the first reading lesson for the students, maybe they never read an article for so long. Since they have been studying for many years,the ss have known something about school life in China, while they may know a little about the school life in the UK. They must be interested in learning the differences. As for the senior one ss, they have a certain ability to read but they are lack of vocabulary. Besides, they don’t often use English to express themselves and communicate with others. Some Ss are not active in the class because they are afraid of making mistakes To solve these problems, I’ll apply the following teaching methods in my teaching 1.Question-and-answer activity teaching method Lead ss to think and find the
answers by their own. 2.Free discussion method Give ss chances to discuss and express 3.“Communicative” Approach(交际教学法). Use English in the class as much as possible 4.“Task-based” language teaching (任务教学法). Offer the Ss an opportunity to
complete the tasks in which Ss use language to achieve a specific outcome. 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. 1. Basic learning strategy The Ss can get the meaning of words and phrases. 2. Practice strategy Practice can help the Ss get the general idea and have a better understanding of the language. 3.Communication strategy Teach the Ss how to be successful language learners Let the Ss pass “Observation- Imitation- Practice” strategy to study language. Next part,teaching procedure Step 1 lead in Ask the students to discuss some parts of high school life in the UK based on what they learned in Welcome to the unit. Let ss work in groups.
