Good morning,dear judges. I'm number 10. It’s my great honor to have this opportunity to discuss my teaching design here. The subject of this lesson is “It’s raining?”
First of all,I would like to talk about the analysis of teaching material. This lesson is chosen from PEP English book of junior high school,grade 7,Unit 7. It is about weather. Students are supposed to learn present progressive tense in this lesson,this lesson is very important because it is a basic grammar focus .
Then let me talk about the analysis of students. Students in junior school are generally interested in English. They have strong curiosity and thirst for knowledge,the simple repetition of the text by teacher is no longer meet their satisfaction. They cline to evaluate themselves according to others’ opinions on them,so they pretty care about others’ evaluation. So during my class,I will give them more encourage to help them build up the confidence in learning English.
According to the New Standard of English Curriculum,I set the following teaching aims.
1. Knowledge aims
(1)Students can master the new words about weather.
(2)Students can use the Present Progressive tense to describe things easily;
(3)Students can master the key sentences in this part:
How is the weather in Beijing?/ What’s the weather like in Beijing?
2. Ability aims
(1)Students can use the present progressive tense in a different context;
(2)Students can foster the abilities of getting useful information from listening material;
(3)Students can improve their listening and speaking abilities;
(4)Students can describe the weather in different ways.
3. Emotional aims
(1) Can improve the confidence of learning English,and not afraid of speaking English in class;
(2)Can cooperate with others actively,and complete the tasks together;
(3)Can understand that New Year is a very time to make a plan;
(4)Can understand that it is very common that people usually talk about weather as their greeting ways in foreign countries.
According to the above analysis,I set the following key points and difficult points.
Key points are:
(1) the usage of present progressive tense;
(2)the usage to the two ways to talk about weather.
Difficult points are:
(1)Can get the main idea of listening material,and get the useful information from material.
(2)Can improve the confidence of learning English,and not afraid of speaking English;
(3)Can under stand that different area has different weather conditions,and realize the differences between China and foreign countries.
The following step is the analysis of teaching aids. In this class,I will need multi-media and pictures.
The teaching methods will be used in this class include following three methods: Communicative Approach,Task-based Teaching Method,Audio-Lingual Approach.
Now,it is the most important part,analysis of teaching procedure. There are 4 steps in my teaching procedure.
In this section,I will show some pictures on some big cities in the world,such as Beijing and Toronto on PPT and ask students: How do you think of these places? Are they beautiful? Do you like to visit these cities? Then I will tell them if we have the chance to visit one of them,we should know the weather condition there first.
Students could be very interested in this class because they would be very eager to talk about these attractive cities.
2. Pre- listening
I will draw some simple pictures on the blackboard to let students understand the meaning of some new words,let students understand that some adjectives are from the noun we learnt before. for example:
These simple pictures are very easy and vivid,so students could understand their meaning without any burden. So it is a useful way to teach these new words.
Then I will ask students to see the picture in 1a,and according to the pictures to match the relative words. The purpose of this step is to provide a basis for the next section. And if students could finish this step well,it could be easier to do the following activity.
3. While- listening
Listen to the tape and write the city names in the box in 1a. After finished,I will ask students to use the following sentence structure to share their answers:
Beijing is sunny.
Moscow is snowy.
Toronto is raining.
Boston is windy.
Shanghai is cloudy.
Through listening,students could understand the usage of present progressive tense. And listening is a good method of inputting,and these simple sentence are combined with the famous cities,so students could raise their interests in learning the new grammar focus.
I will ask students to do the following activities.
Imagine you are in one of the places in 1a,talk about the weather with your friends on the phone. Pay more attention to the definite article “the” in the first sentence. You can refer to the following conversation.
A:Hi! How is the weather in Beijing.
B:It’s sunny. How is the weather in your hometown?
Then ask them look at the map,and suppose you are a reporter,read the map and choose at least 3 cities and report the weather condition by using the sentences we learnt in this class.
The purpose of these two activities to consolidate the usage of present progressive tense. Because these activities are very practical,so they could improving their comprehensive abilities. Besides,weather report is very attractive to students,so they will be very eager and active in these two activities.
5. Summary and homework
I will ask students to recall what we have learnt today,mainly focus on the key words describing weather and the sentences to inquire and answer the weather condition.
Watch the TV and record the weather condition in your province and fill the following table,then be a weather reporter again. Use the new knowledge to tell the information you got to all of the students in the next English class.
The purpose of this homework is to let them use English language into their daily life. They could also understand that they can learn English from their daily life. Since this homework is based on the other places’ weather condition,they could also can develop their comprehensive ability.
At last,it is my blackboard design. It would be helpful for students to understand the key points in this class.
That’s all for my presentation. Thank you for your listening.
