To help students learn about Theme parks. Procedures I. Warming up Warming up by discussing
Lead in Good morning, class.Have you ever been to parks? If you have, why do you go there? Look at the pictures and ask :What kind of park is it, a traditional park or a theme park? There are many kinds of theme parks in the world. Look at the pictures of some world parks in your textbooks and imagine what you may do there. Look at the screen and listen to me telling you about them. Get to know some parks. Today we are going to visit theme parks. But first what do you think a theme park is? With a classmate discuss what you might do in a theme park. There are also many kinds of theme parks in China. Would you please name some you know? Which one of parks above mentioned would you like to visit most if you are given a chance? Give your reasons. Warming up telling experiences Nice to see you again, boys and girls. As you have all travelled somewhere before I shall ask two of you at random to tell the class about their travel experiences. (For reference: Visiting Disney World was a childhood dream of mine, and I was able to realise it last year. It is not a place I could live in, but it definitely has magic… One of the best parts was that I was able to interact with most of the Disney characters, even though their appearance and mannerisms varied from the Disney comic books I read. A few select pictures are included here, but my recommendation if you're taking a kid is to make sure they get some time with the characters. I can't think of anything cooler. ) Homework 1.Learn the new words by heart 2.Preview :Reading (THEME PARKS ——FUN AND MORE THAN FUN) II. Pre-reading 1. Looking and saying What do you suppose a theme park is ? It is a kind of amusement park which has a certain theme – that the whole park is based on. Work in pairs. Look at the photos and theme parks and predict the contents of the text. When you are ready, join another pair and compare your predictions and the clues that helped you to make
the predictions. What do you think you can see in a theme park? buildings, castles, statues, rare animals and birds, and so on. What activities can we take in a theme park? (For reference: From the photos and title I guess that the text tells about Theme parks where you can joy yourselves and have fun with various activities… 2. Talking and sharing Work in groups of four. Tell your group mates what you know about theme parks. Then the group leader is to stand up and share your group idea with the class. Pair Work----Interview Has your partner ever tried any activity mentioned above? Why or why not? Which activity does your partner prefer in an amusement park? Why? (For reference: As you wander down Main street USA in the Magic Kingdom Park of Walt Disney World, you might stop and take a peek in the Main street Theatre. Here, Steamboat Willie shows how it all began depicting the first appearance of Mickey Mouse. At this point people usually stop for a bit, perhaps to rest from the hot Florida summer, laugh at Mickey's antics as he uses various animals as musical instruments (long before Beavis and Butthead were throwing cats in drying machines), and walk away amused and entertained. That was Walt Disney's primary goal. Today, people might consider the first cartoon featuring Mickey as art, along with a host of other creative works produced by people who work at Disney. Notable among them are Carl Barks and Don Rosa, whose works sell in the thousands. However, Walt Disney himself never thought that what he, and his employees, did was art: "I don't pretend to know anything about art. I make pictures for entertainment, and then the professors tell me what they mean." ) III. Reading 1.Reading aloud to the recording Ask the Ss :What is the meaning of the title ―Theme Park – Fun and more than fun‖?The title means that theme parks are fun to visit, but that they can also be educational and can offer useful information. 2.Skimming: Listen to the tape and find out the main idea (or topic sentence) of each paragraph.
Now please listen and read aloud to the recording of the text THEME PARKS ——FUN AND MORE THAN FUN. Pay attention to the pronunciation of each word and the pauses within each sentence. I will play the tape twice and you shall read aloud twice, too. 3． Reading to identify the topic sentence of each paragraph Skim the text and identify the topic sentence of each paragraph. You may find it either at the beginning, the middle or the end of the paragraph. (For reference: 1st paragraph: Parks provide people with a place to amuse themselves and to escape their busy lives for a while. 2nd paragraph: Many parks have been designed to provide entertainment. 3rd paragraph: Theme parks have a certain idea— a certain theme—that the whole park is based on. 4th paragraph: Some are history or culture theme parks. 5th paragraph: The oldest theme park in the world is Disneyland, built near Los Angeles, California in 1955. 6th paragraph: There are also science theme parks. ) 4.Reading and transferring information After your reading please fill in the form: Kinds of parks purposes Ways to meet this need

Closing down Closing down by doing exercises To end the lesson you are to do the comprehending exercises No. 1, 2 and 3 on p 34. Closing down by having a discussion Do you lake a theme park? Why or why not? (For reference: All over the world people seek stimulating experiences to take their mind away from everyday troubles, and the United States is definitely no exception to this rule. Most of its residents have the money and time to entertain themselves as it pleases them -- and visiting amusement parks certainly does please them. ) Closing down by defining a theme park What is a theme park?

Homework 1.Read the passage carefully and underline some words, phrases or sentences which you don’t understand. 2.Preview– learning about language IV.Learning about Language (Word formation) Aims To help students learn about word formation. To help students discover and learn to use some useful words and expressions. To help students discover and learn to use some useful structures. Procedures I. Warming up Warming up by discovering useful words and expressions Turn to page 35 and do exercises No. 1, 2 ,3 and 4 first. Check your answers against your classmates’. II. Learning about Word formation Some words can be guessed by looking for smaller words within them. These are called compound words. Examples of compound nouns are theme park, fantasyland and English-speaking. Find out three types of compound nouns in the reading passage. The basic part of any word is the root; to it, you can add a prefix at the beginning and/or a suffix at the end to change the meaning. For example, in the word "unflattering," the root is simply "flatter," while the prefix "un-" makes the word negative, and the suffix "-ing" changes it from a verb into an adjective (specifically, a participle). English itself does not use prefixes as heavily as it once did, but many English words come from Latin, which uses prefixes and suffixes (you can use the word affix to refer either to a prefix or a suffix) quite extensively. For example, the words "prefix," "suffix," and "affix" themselves are all formed from "fix" by the used of prefixes:
? "ad" (to) + "fix" (attached) = "affix" ? "pre" (before) + "fix" = "prefix" ? "sub" (under) + "fix" = "suffix"
Note that both the "-d" of "ad" and the "-b" of "sub" change the last letter. Here are some of the most common Latin prefixes (for the meanings of the Latin roots, look up the words in a good dictionary): ab (away) abrupt, absent, absolve ad (to) adverb, advertisment, afflict in (not) incapable, indecisive, intolerable inter (between, among) intercept, interdependent, interprovincial intra (within) intramural, intrapersonal, intraprovincial pre (before) prefabricate, preface prefer post (after) postpone, postscript, postwar sub (under) submarine, subscription, suspect trans (across) transfer, transit, translate III. Ready used materials for Word formation 了解了英语构词法是迅速扩大词汇量的有效途径之一。英语中有转化法、合成法、缀合法、 派生法等构词方式， 这里我们将向您陆续讲解比较常用的几种， 希望对您的英语学习有所帮 助。 首先，来介绍一下构词法中的几个基本概念： 词根（base,boot） ：指同根词共有的可以辨认的部分。 例如：philanthropist(慈善家)、anthropoid（类人的） 、misanthropist（厌世者） 、anthropology （人类学）这几个词中的词根 anthropo-(人)就很容易辨认出来。 词干（stem） ：是未经词形变化的原词。 前缀（prefix）和后缀(suffix)：原是独立的词或词根，由于经常缀在别的词或词根的前后， 辅助中心意义，渐渐就失去了独立的意义和形式，而成为附加的构词部分。 例如：co-(with)就是一个常见的前缀。通常把带有前后缀的新词叫做合成词，也有人把带有 后缀的词叫做派生词。把一个词从一种词类转成另一种词类，可以用缀合法，如 red adj. (红 的)—to redden v. 变红） 可以用改变词根的元音或辅音的办法， （ ； 即元级派生法， food n.(食 如 物)—to feed v.（喂饭） ；也可以原封不动，转成其他词类，如 pale adj.(苍白的)——to pale v. （脸变白） ，即转化法。 这里，我们先来看看―转化法‖中名词转成动词的一些例子。 He filmed the story. / He reproduced the story on a film.他把这篇小说拍成电影。
人身器官名称，用作动词，表示使用这种器官的动作。 例如： shouldered his way through the crowd. (他用肩膀从人群中挤过去) 此外， to cheek He 如 (厚着脸说)、to finger (摸索)、to hand a person（用手领着）等。 盛具或衣物的名称，用作动词，表示―盛‖或者―装入‖。 例如：He pocketed his book and pen. (他把钢笔、本子装进衣袋子)以及 to bottle(装瓶)、to can (装罐)、to sack (装在袋里)。 表示地点的名词用作动词也有类似用法： corner( 逼在角落)、 island(隔离)、 nursery(放 to to to 在温室里)等等。 除此之外，还有动词、副词、助动词等转化成名词的用法，我们来看一些例子： On another run they failed to see the boat.他们第二次去的时候没有找到那只船。 ins and outs (来龙去脉) back and forth(问答) a must ( 必不可少的事) many ifs（许多条件） 动词加副词转化为名词的例子也很多：Break-down(垮)、get-together(聚会)、set-back(挫折)、 wash-out(废物)等。 另外，形容词有时候也可以转成名词，如：the greens(青菜)、great sillies(大蠢人) 下面，我们来学习一下―合成法（composition）‖。 凡是由两个或两个以上的构词成分，合成一个词，而其中每个成分又可以独立为词的，叫做 合成词（compounds）,而这种构词法，叫做合成法。比如：coal-mine(煤矿)、man-made(人 造的)。 合成词的特有含义，不受词中各个成分连结方式的影响，它的写法由习惯而定，可以写在一 起， blackbird(画眉);可以用连词符号连接， turn-coat(叛徒)； 如 如 也可以分开写， black list(黑 如 名单)。注意，分开写的合成词，不仅仅在意义上，即使在形式上，也和词组有区别。比如 black sea 里的 black，不是独立的形容词，不能说 very black sea。合成词各个成分之间关系 千变万化，分类也有很多种，这里就合成词的词性，分类举例说明： 1.合成名词 名词+名词：前面的名词说明后面的名词，中心意义由后面的名词表达，比如，同是 book, 可以有 account book，hand-book，note-book 等等。前面的名词可以表示人、物、性别、器 具、 地点、 时间、 比喻对象等等。 如： eye-shot(视力范围)、 buck-rabbit 公兔） night-school(夜 （ 、 校)、baby-husband（小女婿）等等。 形容词+名词：这类词意义关系一目了然，有时候是实指，有时候是指物而拟人。如 Blueprints(蓝图)，big hat（大人物）,double-face(两面派)等等。
动名词+名词：动名词表示行为或状态的改变，名词往往表示所用的器物，地名等等，如 consulting-room（诊室） ，writing-desk（写字台） 。 动词+名词：往往由短语动词变成，或者是转化与合成的结合，如 pickpocket(扒手)， turn-coat(叛徒)等等。 名词+动名词： 很普遍， 有时甚至可以随意构造， book-learning 书本知识） word-making(构 如 （ ， 词)等等。 前置词+名词：意义关系和―形容词+名词‖类型相似：after-effects(后果)，by-product(副产品) 等等。 另外，国名的组合，有时候用―拉丁语+英语‖的方式，如 Afro-Asian People's Conference( 亚 非会议)、Sino-Japanese War(中日战争) 2. 合成形容词 3. 形容词+名词：形容词和名词连用，原是短语，用做定语。固定下来，成为形容词，有 的还只是 nonce-words,也有合成名词作定语或转成形容词的情形： full-time worker 全 如 （ 职工） 、long-range gun(远程炮)等。 4. 形容词+形容词：这类词不算多，前面的形容词大都进一步说明后面的形容词，如： light-blue(浅蓝)、dead-alive(半死不活)。 5. 名词+过去分词：有被动意味，名词相当于前置词宾语，表示工具，行为者等， 如:man-made(人造的)，moth-eaten(虫蛀的)。 6. 名词+现在分词： 有主动意味， 名词大都相当于行为的宾语， English-speaking people(说 如： 英语的人)，peace-loving（热爱和平的） 7. 形容词+现在分词：有主动意味，形容词相当于表语或者定语，如 eager-seeming(样子急 切)，easy-going（随和的） 副词+分词：如 half-baked(幼稚的)，far-seeing（有远见的） 副词+形容词：over-anxious(过急)，all-round athlete(全能选手) 名词+形容词：名词大都作比喻的对象，如 cock-sure(自恃)，paper-thin（薄如纸） 3.合成动词 合成动词大都是由―副词＋动词‖组成的，这里―副词‖多半表示动作的方向、程度等等。 如：out 表示超过 to outnumber（超过数目）to out-talk（压过别人的声音） ；under 表示 不足、在下 to underdevelop（发育不全）to underestimate（估计不足）to underline（行 下划线）等等。
4.叠声合成词 由同一个词重复， 或稍加声音变化重叠而成。 这类词往往是加重语气因而常带有感情色 彩，比方，嘲讽。例：goody-goody（假殷勤）so so（不怎么样）wish wash（乏味的饮 料）等等。 5.句式合成词 整个句子当作一个词用， 有的已经固定下来， 例如 pick-me-up （兴奋剂） what's-his-name ， （某某人） 。整个句子用作形容词的现象比较普遍，把复杂的概念揉成单纯的限制语使 行文紧凑。A let-bygones-be-bygones manner（一种―过去的就算了吧‖的态度） an if-you-would-only-be-guided-by-me expression（一种―要是你肯听了我的话够多好‖的神 气） 我们接着来学习构词法中的第三类——―缀合法‖，分前缀和后缀两部分来讲解。 前缀 有些词根或单词，由于经常放在别的词根或单词前面使用，经过长期的发展，失去了 独立的作用，变成前缀。前缀具有一定含义，但不见得很明确。前缀缀在词上，可以改 变、限制、或加强这个词的含义，而不改变其词类。一个词根或词，可以层层缀上好几 个前缀， in-com-pre-hen-si-ble-ness(不可理解)的词根是 hen,pre-,com-都加强了其含义， 如 而 in-又把整个词义转为否定。凡由缀加前缀或后缀而成的词叫做派生词。 前缀的缀合，有时是连写，如 extraordinary,有时用连词符号如 extra-territorial,有时被词 根吸收如 ancestor(ante-cessor)。前缀既然有一定的意义，为了便于识别，下面就按照一 样相近的前缀，分类说明。 （前缀的来源一律以缩写字母注：[OE]古英语；[OF]古法语； [L]拉丁；[GK]希腊；[IT]意大利等） 表示否定的前缀，这类前缀可以分为四种： （1）纯粹表示否定的，如 a-,dis-,in-； （2） 表示―错误‖的， mis- ； 3） 有 （ 表示―反动作‖， de-,un- ； 表示―反对‖的， anti-,contra如 （4） 有 （1）纯粹表示否定的。a-,an-[GK]能构成少数新词。加在名词、形容词上，表示没有―某 种 性 质 ― 。 如 :amoral[=unmoral] 不 道 德 的 ,asexual 无 性 别 的 .a- 在 元 音 前 变 成 an- 如 anonymous[onoma=name]匿名的 dis-[L]加在名词、形容词、动词上，表示否定。Disadvantage(劣势)、disagreement(不和)， disbelieve(不相信) in-,il-(在字母 l 前)，im-(在字母 m,b,p 前)，ir(在字母 r 前) [L]常和音节较多的 learned words(雅语)，尤其是拉丁，法语外来词结合，加在形容词或其派生词、副词上，表示
否定。Inaccurate, illegible, impolite, irregular, inability, infinite, impious。 un-[OE]是最通用的前缀之一，可以用于大多数形容词及其派生副词、名词、表示否定， 如 unfailing, unfinished, undoubtedly, unheard-of 等。 （2）表示―错误‖的 mis- 多作重读， 表示―wrongly，badly‖。可以适当构造新词：大多用于动词：to misbehave（行为不当） misunderstand（误解） 。用于作形容词的分词：misbelieving（信仰不当） ，misleading（靠 不住） 。用于动名词：misdealing（不正当手段） 。 偶而，mis-也表示纯粹的否定词义：to mistrust。 （3）表示―反动作‖。 de- 表示―反动作‖ （to undo the action） 。能构造新词，多作重读。decontrol（取消控制） decolour（漂白） ， dis- 主要用于动词，表示―反动作‖。disappear（不见） disarm（解除武装） disconnect （分离）un- 表示―反动作‖unmask（揭露） unsay（收回意见） （4）表示―反对‖。 anti表示―反对，反面‖ anti-social（反社会的） antiseptic（防腐剂） anti-militarist（反军国 主义者） contra- 表示―反对，相反‖ contradiction（矛盾） contrast（对比） contrary（相反的） counter- 表示―against‖ counteract（还手） counterattack（反攻）前缀大都表示空间，时 间，逻辑上的关系，意思上有引申。 ab- apo- se- 这几个前缀或多或少都有―away ，off‖的含义。 ab- a- abs- 在 p， m， v 之前作 a-，在 c， t 之前作 abs-，不能构造新词，表示―away ， apart， absence‖，例如 absent， avoid se- 表示―separation‖（分离） ，例如 segregate（隔离） ，sedition（反叛） ante-，fore- pre- post- pro- 这几个前缀都有―before‖的意思。 ante- 表示在...前，例 ante-humous（死前） ，ante-room（前厅） fore- 表示时间，空间上的―在前面‖，例 forehead（前额） ，foregraound（前景） ，foretell （预言） pre- 表示事先，在前，例 prehistory（史前） ，prepayment（预支） post- 表示时间空间上的在后。例 posterity（后代） ，post-war（战后） pro- 表示―代替，利于，亲于‖，例 pro-chancellor（代大学校长） ，pro-consul（代理领事） circum- peri- 这两个前缀跟圆周有关。 circum- 表示圆周，如 circumference， circumlocution， circumpolar peri- 表示―round‖，如 perimeter（周长） ，perisphere（势力范围）

II. Old Aircraft Carrier Turned Into Military Theme Park in China An old aircraft carrier from the former Soviet Union navy has been turned into a military theme park and will be stationed at Dapeng Bay in Shenzhen, south China' s Guangdong Province. The 40,000-ton ship, known as the Minsk, first arrived at the Wenchong Shipyard in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong Province, in November 1998 as scrap iron, the Shanghai-based Wenhuai Daily reported on May 8. It is about triple the size of a standard football field, 18 stories high, and has more than 2,000 cabins, the paper said. The carrier, which was poorly maintained by the Russian navy after the collapse of the Soviet Union, retired in 1993 and was initially sold to a South Korean businessman as scrap steel after key military components were removed, the paper said. The Minsk was later resold to an undisclosed Chinese business.

For an answer, I turned to Robert Obenour. He's spent his career in the theme park business and is currently vice president of operations for Baker Leisure Group, an international theme park consultancy. Here’s the advice he gave me to pass on to you. 1. Plan your visit.
Buy a guidebook. Read reviews. Check out the park’s Web site. Then plan what you want to see and do. Unless the park is small, you shouldn’t expect to see or do everything in one day, so set your priorities. The investment you make in planning will pay handsome dividends on ―park day.‖ 1. Have a ―Plan B.‖
It is not uncommon that an attraction will be closed. In that case, just move on to the next on your list. Also, in the unlikely — but not unheard of — event that the entire park is closed, have a backup plan that includes another, nearby activity. 2. Arrive early.
An extra 15 minutes waiting in line at the park entrance could cut an hour off of your waiting time for the most popular attractions.
Divide and conquer.
Chances are that not everyone in your party wants to do or see the same things. Although it is nice to be able to share the experiences of a theme park as a family or with friends, time (and money) may limit the opportunity for each person to accomplish what he or she would like while traveling as a group. 4. Keep in touch.
Go your separate ways, but arrange to meet back at a specific location at a designated time to talk over your experiences, offer recommendations, revise your plan and set a time and place for your next meeting. Also have a site selected that can become a place to reestablish contact should your party become accidentally separated. It will save lots of time that might otherwise be spent looking for one another. 5. Go deep.
Once you enter the park, proceed to the farthest attractions first. Theme park designers place much of the merchandise near the park entrances — hoping to catch you coming and going. And it works — in this case to your advantage. By bypassing the shops on your way to the popular attractions, you will beat others who get waylaid by the shops. 6. Choose your position.
The front of the line may not always be the best for attractions where large numbers of guests are admitted all at once as, for instance, in an auditorium. The people who are at the very front of the line may find themselves up against a side wall, while middle-of-the-liners have the best view. 7. Leave mid-day.
Generally, theme parks are most crowded in the middle of the day. This is a good time to rest for a few hours — regaining your strength for another assault on the park later in the day. Be sure to get your hand stamped or get some other proof of admission that will allow you to be readmitted to the park at no charge. 8. Eat outside.
Food prices inside a theme park can be as horrifying as any of the park’s dark rides. While taking your mid-day break from the park, refuel yourself without spending a bundle on hot dogs. 9. Return late-day.
As the energy of other guests wanes, move back into the park. This time, visit the attractions closer to the entrance first where it is probably less crowded now. 10. Shop last.
Want to buy souvenirs? Do it on your way out. You won’t have to lug your purchases around with you all day. 11. Enjoy.
Finally, if you find yourself getting ticked off at slow lines, poor service or inconsiderate guests, stop and take a breather. A visit to a theme park is supposed to be an enjoyable event, not a stressful occasion. 3．Words and expressions from Unit 5 Theme Parks
