Unit 2 Heroes
Lesson 1 Modern Heroes
Good morning, dear teachers. It’s my honor to stand here sharing my teaching ideas with you. My name is Niu Xiaoli, graduated from Xinxiang Medical University 2010. The content of my lesson is from Senior English Book 1, The first lesson of Unit 2. I will begin the lesson from five parts: analysis of the teaching material, the teaching method, the studying method, the teaching procedure and the blackboard design. Let’t come to the first part.
Part 1 Analysis of Teaching material
The topic of this unit is Heroes, including national heroes, history makers, sports stars and superhero. Different fields have different heroes. The first lesson is about national hero Yang Liwei’s first journey with Shenzhou V to the outer space. The lesson not only tells the first manned spaceship’s movement from lift-off to landing, but also trains the students’ English learning abilities including reading, writing and speaking abilities. The senior students have built the basic foundation to learn English. They are more mature than before, so they are able to analyze some primary materials. They are just lack of chances to practice and courage to express their ideas. According to the new standard curriculum and the syllabus, after analysis of the teaching material and the students, I think the teaching aims are as follow:
1. Knowledge and skill aims:
a. To practise skimming and scanning skills to get a general idea of the text and find answers to some specific questions.
b.To practise intensive reading in order to get the main idea of each paragraph and work out the meaning of the new words, new phrases and key structures.
c. To practise writing skills with the new words, new phrases and structures.
d. To improve oral English.
2. Process and method aims:
To train the students’ self-learning and cooperative ability.
3. Emotion and moral aims:
To understand the hardships during the development of the space exploration.
The important point of the lesson is how to work out the meaning of the new words, new phrases and key structures.
The difficult point is how to make good use of the new words, new phrases and key structures in proper situation. In order to stress the important point and break through the difficult point, I will adopt some teaching methods as follow.
Part 2 Teaching methods
In the teaching process, communicative approach and task-based language teaching methods will be adopted. The new standard curriculum propose that the students should be the real master of the class, and put emphasis on their probe ability and cooperative ability. So many chances will be provided to train their abilities.
Part 3 Studying methods.
Students of this stage are quick in thought and they are eager to show what they know. They have a certain self-learning abilities which needs more practice. A good teacher will act as a director, a guider, a helper to make the students the real master of the class. The main studying methods are
