The Fifth Period
●从容说课 This is the fifth period of this unit.As usual，the teacher will check the homework.First，the teacher will ask several pairs of the students to act out their dialog
ues.This activity is designed to make Ss to guess what may happen according to the story，meanwhile to develop Ss’ ability of expressing their ideas in English and make them more courageous to express themselves in public.To see if the Ss have improved their ability of expressing themselves in English，they will evaluate their performance in acting their dialogue.Later this evaluation will be put into Ss’ study files. For Part 1 on Page 56，the teacher can ask each student to read several sentences of the passage.In this way， Ss are also given a chance to practise reading English aloud.To give Ss a clear impression upon the Wuyi Mountains，the teacher can present pictures taken there. There are several language points from Page 22 to 23.It is time for the teacher to deal with them in this period，for there is a translation exercise on Page 57，which we will leave to Ss as today’s homework.The explanation of these language points will give Ss confidence in finishing what otherwise will be very difficult. In the previous two periods，Ss have been given much training in reading，since listening is another important part of English learning ， they should be given some training in listening.Therefore in this period，they will finish the listening tasks of Part 3 Chatting With a Girl on Page 23.Through listening activity，we can develop Ss’ ability of grasping key words and key sentences and get them into the habit of predicting what will happen according to the context.Ss are given different tasks while listening to the passage for three different times.This is also correspondent to the task-based teaching methods. To consolidate the language points in this unit，Ss are required to finish the translation exercise of Part 2 on Page 57.And they should preview Part 6 of Journal Down the Mekong on Page 59. ●三维目标 1.Knowledge： usual，put up，camp，for one thing... for another 2.Ability： Listening and speaking. 3.Emotion： Learn the beauty of our motherland. ●教学重点 The language points of this lesson. ●教学难点 To get correct information in listening. ●教具准备 Projector and other normal teaching tools. ●教学过程 Step 1 Greeting Step 2 Act out the dialogue
Step 3 Revision T： Yesterday you did a quite good job.So today I’ll show some beautiful pictures I took in the Wuyi Mountains as a reward.Do you like them？I think you’ll be interested in the travel journal by one of the tourists to Wuyi Mountains.Please turn to Page 56.Would you please read the passage，paying attention to your tone？ S1：A tour of the Wuyi Mountains in the northwest of Fujian Province is well worth your time.This place has clean rivers，beautiful forests on hills and peaceful villages.The UN honored much of Wuyi in 1999.Since then，more and more tourists have visited it and some have used air travel to get there. T：Please stop here.Would anyone go on reading the passage？ S2： You will be gl ad to know， however， that it is still a special， quiet place to see.Yunufeng， or Jade Lady Peak，is as beautiful as ever.Jiuquxi，a river in the shape of a snake in the southwestern part of Wuyi Mountains，is still green and clear as it travels nearly ten kilometers to the plains below. S3：On the river you can see many high hills or stop to climb a rock staircase to the top of Tianyoufeng.From there you might stand in a light warm rain as you look out over the beautiful valley below.Clouds come and go among the mountains and you may imagine yourself in a dream world.Sometimes fog finds its way between the mountains and into the valleys.Birds sing cheerfully in the forest，perhaps calling out names from long ago. S4：In another part of the river you can take a boat down the rapids but be sure to wear a T-shirt and shorts as you will get wet.If you need to wear glasses，tie them to your head.Don’t change your mind about going down the river! Be brave!Some guides will help you on the boat and take care of you on the river.You can watch gre en water become white as it begins to move more quickly.You will probably feel both excited and nervous，but enjoy the ride.When your journey is finished，don’t forget to pay a visit to the village nearby and try the famous Wuyi rock tea.Then you can have a rest and think about the trip. Step 4 Language points T： “As usual” means “ as it is usual”.For example： He came late as usual.（He was always late，and this time he came late again.） Can you guess its Chinese meaning？ S：It means “像往常一样”. T：Please make some sentences by yourselves. S1：He is a man with few words.He didn’t say anything at the meeting as usual. S2：He will go home at the Spring Festival as usual. T：Listen and tell me the meaning of “than usual”. He had important things to deal with this morning，so he got up much earlier than usual. S：比往常。 T：Yes.How can we say “今天会议室的人比往常多”？ S：Today there are more people in the meeting room than usual. T：What about“他今晨感到比往常好一点了。 ”？ S：He feels a bit better than usual this morning. T：Tell me the meaning of “put up the tent”. S：搭起帐篷。 T：Besides “搭起” ，what other meanings does the phrase have？Please tell the meaning of
it in the following sentences. （1）If you have questions，you can put up your hands to ask your teacher.举起手 （2）They put up several new houses on out street.建造 （3）They put up some pictures on the wall to make the room more beautiful.张贴 （4）Every morning，mother puts up breakfast for the two children.准备（饭食、药物等） （5）He is going to put up another proposal at the conference.提出（建议） （Ask individual Ss to guess the meaning in each sentence.） T：Now look at the word “camp”.What part of speech it it？ S：It is a noun.

S：Can it be used as a verb？ T：Yes，of course.We can say “go camping.” “Go camping” means “去露营”. S：I once came across “summer camp” ，does it mean “夏令营”？ T：Yes，you’re very clever.Here is another very important word “stay”.How do you understand the word in “stay awake”？ S：Does it mean “ keep or remain awake”？ T：Yes，how do you know？ S：I remember we learned “American English changed while British English stayed the same.” In this sentence， “stay” means “remain” or “keep”. T：You have good memory.We should always associate the new with what we have learned.It is a good way of learning everything.Now turn to Page 23.Please underline “for one thing，for another” and “be familiar to”. “For one thing，for another” usually expresses two reasons.Its Chinese meaning is “一 则??再则” ，e.g. I persuaded him not to buy the suit，for one thing，it didn’t suit him，for another （thing） ， it was too expensive. Can you make one sentence after the model？ S：I will not go the cinema tonight，for one thing，it is raining，for another，there will be an exam tomor row.

Step 5 Listening T： Next， we will do some listening exercises.Please look at Part 3 Chatting with a Girl on Page 23. （1）First listening Listen to the tape for the first time，and then tick out the words you hear on the tape. （2）Second listening Listen to the tape for the second time and fill in the chart. The teacher can design a close test about a summary of this listening part.Ask Ss to fill in the
missing words. （3）Third listening Let Ss listen to the tape again and check the answers by themselves.The teacher gives Ss the suggested answers. Step 6 Homework 1.Finish the translation exercise of Part 2 on Page 57. 2.Preview Part 6 of Journey Down the Mekong on Page 59.
