The Third Period
●从容说课 This is the third period of this unit.To test if Ss have understood the phrases and patterns they learned during the second period，the teacher can first give them
some revision exercises.“It is ...that” is a very difficult structure，so the teacher can design some exercises for Ss. Ss have got some idea about the present continuous tense for future use in the first period，to make them more familiar with its function， the teacher can give them more practice， both oral and written.Meanwhile，the teacher will help them go over another two ways of expressing future actions.These tasks are designed to improve their ability of using language. To make Ss well prepared for the reading of the fourth period，the teacher can deal with the rest few new words in this class. As to the homework，the teacher will ask Ss to preview Part 3 on Page 19 after class.Because this work is a bit difficult，tell Ss any group work is welcome. S ince the five-day National holidays are coming.Suppose that one student and his friends will go for a trip.Ask them to go to a nearby travel agency and find a schedule for their trip.Later they are required to talk about what they will do on their travel，using present continuous tense.Through this activity，Ss can get to know what a travel plan is like，and consolidate what they have learned，which is correspondent to the teaching method “Learn through doing”. ●三维目标 1.Knowledge： （1）Learn the present continuous tense for future use. （2）Go over the other two ways of expressing future actions. 2.Ability： Learn to make sentences，using the above three ways. 3.Emotion： Develop Ss’ sense of group cooperation. ●教学重点 The present continuous tense for future use. ●教学难点 （1）It is ...that... （2）The present continuous tense for future use. ●教具准备 Multi-media classroom and other normal teaching tools. ●教学过程 Step 1 Greeting Step 2 Revision T：First I will test how well you understand what you learned yesterday.Please judge whether the following sentences are right.If they are not right，please correct them. （1）It is with the help of the teacher that I passed the exam. （2）It is I who is wrong. （3）It was she that he helped with her homework yesterday. （4）It was at the post-office where we met each other.
（5）It was yesterday afternoon when they played a close basketball game. （6）Who was it that discovered the secret？ S：I think it’s right. T：Do you agree with him？ S2：No，I think it is not right.But I don’t know why. T：Does any one know the reason？ S3：In that cause，the past tense is used，so I think we should change “is” to “was”. T：Quite Good.That is to say：当原句的时态为表示现在的各种时态时，用 It is...；当原 句的时态为表示过去的各种时态时，则用 It was...。Now，what about the second sentence？ S：I think it is right. S：I don’t agree with her.Here “who” refers to “I” ，so after I we should use “am”. T：Great.当被强调部分为原句的主语时，that 句中谓语动词应在人称与数上与它保持一 致。Let’s look at Sentence 3，is it right or wrong？ S： It’s wrong.The phrase is “help sb. with sth.” I think we should change “she” to “her” . T： Good.当被强调部分为代词时， 如是主语就用代词的主格， 如是宾语则用宾格。 So you see in Sentence 2，we use I instead of me，because the emphasized part is subject. S：I see. T：Is Sentence 4 a good sentence？ S：Yes，I think so. T：What is your opinion，Han Mei？ Han Mei：I am not quite sure. T：Write down this sentence in your notebook： 当被强调的对象指人时， 可用 who/whom 代替 that； 但当被强调的是地点、 时间、 原因、 方式等状语时，决不能用 where，when，why，how 等来替换。 S：Sentence 4 and Sentence 5 a re wrong.We should use “that” in place of “where” and “when”. T：You are clever.And the last sentence is right .Always remember： Wh+was it that...？当对被强调的地点、时间、原因、方式等状语提问时，我们要用到这 个句 型。 Please translate these sentences，using this structure. （1）他是在哪里度过他的童年时代的？ （2）他们怎样取得 这么大的成就的呢？ （3）他和她为什么吵架？ S1：Where was it that he spent his child hood？ S2：How was it that they made such great achievements？ S3：Why was it that he quarreled with her？ Step 3 Relaxation T：You did a quite good job.I will play an English song for you as a reward.But while enjoying the song，you should underline the verb in the sentences of part on Page 21.

T：But here does this tense express the present action or state？ S：No. T：We all can see it expresses the future action.Can you expres s these sentences in other ways？ S：Are you going to work this evening？ We are going to have an English party. We are going to give performances at the party. I am going to sing songs with my classmates. T：So you use “be going to” to express the future action.Will someone say them in a different way？ S：Will you work this evening？ We will have an English party. We will give performances at the party. I will sing songs with my classmates. T：You are perfect right.And you use “will do” to express future action.Now how many ways do we have to express future actions？List them.
