Unit 5 Music: The band that wasn’t
本单元的话题是“音乐” 、 “音乐类型” 、和“乐队” 。本课“The band that wasn’t”(“曾不是 乐队的乐队”)是单元的精读课文。文章先介绍了一个乐队形成的通常过程。然后描述了门基乐队 （The Monkees）由“假乐队”发展为“真乐队” 、 “成功的乐队”的特殊历程。通过对课文的学习， 学生将了解音乐的价值、乐队的成名过程，并领悟乐队成功的要素。 本课理解的关键点在于门基乐队由“假”变“真”的过程。 因此在热身环节中要引导学生理解什么是乐队 （许多学生分不清乐队和音乐组合） ， 为理解课 文做铺垫。 在阅读环节中，应让让学生归纳出普通乐队和门基乐队不同的形成和发展历程，比较两者之 间的区别，进而理解门基乐队起初“不是”真乐队，后来“发展成为”真乐队。最后引导学生讨 论乐队成功必备的因素。让学生在理解文章同时，引发对音乐人人生价值的思考。 本文脉络结构清晰，但细节信息丰富，且含有大量的的定语从句，学生理解有一定的困难。 因此在阅读的过程中，既要引导学生归纳段落大意，把握篇章结构，又要教会学生删繁就简，抓 住关键词，把握主要信息和细节信息，又快又准的理解课文。
