英语：Unit1《Festivals around the world》 Period 1 Warming up and Reading（说课稿）
Good morning, everyone, It’s my great pleasure to be here sharing my lesson with you. The content of my le
sson is New Senior English for China Book3 U1 Festivals Around the World. I’ll be ready to begin this lesson from two parts. The first part is analyzing the teaching material and the second part is teaching procedure. First, let me talk about the teaching material. Part 1 Teaching Material: This is the first teaching period of this unit. At the beginning of the class, the teacher can lead in the topic of the unit by having a free talk with students about their winter holidays and the Spring Festival. The Warming Up is intended to have students start thinking about the variety of events and festivals that are celebrated in China. The teacher can ask the students if they have some idea about the foreign and domestic festivals. The Pre-reading is a continuation of the Warming Up and it moves the discussion to a more personal level. It is intended to help students enter imaginatively into a discussion of festivals and their importance to the society. It also directs their attention to the variety of events and activities those festivals include. The reading passage titled Festivals and Celebrations which is briefly describes the earliest kinds of festivals with the reasons for them, and then four different kinds of festivals that occur in most parts of the world. Encourage students to look at the pictures and the heading of each section to guess what the text might be about. The teacher can first let them work in pairs or in groups to find the answers together, and then check their answers with the whole class. Students should be required to talk about festivals in their own words at the end of the class.
Part 2 Teaching Steps: In my opinion, the main instructional aims of learning English in the Middle School is to develop the students’ abilities of listening, speaking, reading, writing and their good sense of the English language. Therefore, the teaching steps are very important and they should be arranged in good orders. Moreover, the teaching methods should be considered in this part, such as pair work activity and Students
–Centered-Teaching. Now let me introduce my teaching steps. Step 1 Leading-in I will have a free talk with students. Ask them the following questions: Did you have a good time in your winter holidays? How did you celebrate your Spring Festival? With this topic we will begin the new unit which is talk about the festivals around the world.
Step 2 Warming up I will let students talk about other Chinese festivals that they familiar to. (Lantern Festival, Pure Brightness Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, New Year’s Day, Chung Yeung Festival. . . ) And then I will let students read the information about Chinese festivals in the book and discuss another three Chinese festivals. Next I will let them complete the form in this part in pair work and ask some to share their opinions with the whole class. After finish the form I will talk about some foreign festivals with students by PPT such as Christmas, April Fools’ Day, Easter, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving Day and so on.
Step 3 Pre-reading In this part, we will have a discussion about the following questions:
What festivals or celebrations do you have in your city or town? What part of a festival do you like best—the activities, the music, the sights, the food or the people who visit? Step 4 Reading This part will conclude 3 parts, the fast reading, intensive reading and reading and discussion. About the fast reading, I will ask students to skim the reading passage and then fill in a following chart. This part is very important because students can improve their reading skills and reading speed by skimming reading scanning reading. For the intensive reading part I will allow students to read carefully this time to understand the main ideas of each paragraph and the important details, and then finish some questions. Last is the reading and discussion, in this part, the students are allowed to read the text a third time and then work in pairs to finish the form and discuss which festivals are the most important and which are the most fun. I will encourage them to expand their answer by their own experience. Step 5 Homework The last step is homework. 1. Learn the useful new words and expressions in this part by heart. 2. Read the reading passage again and again and try to talk about festivals both in and out of China. Purpose of the homework: I think homework is so important that the students should speak English as much as they can in class or after class. It is necessary for the students to do some exercises after class to master the knowledge they learned. Last by not least, class mood is very important for both students and teachers. I will make my class in an easy mood by using some beautiful music and flash or other suitable methods. As teachers, to make our English classrooms shine with vitality, we are laid with heavy burden, and we still have long way to go. Above is the lecture note of my lesson. Thank you for listening!
