The students do it while listening to the tape. T: OK. Stop here, please look at the big screen and choose the correct one. Which one is the best? The passage Zhou Kai (1) mainly tells us that______.

T: Yes, good. We can see this point from the conversation between Zhou Kai and his mother. Next, let ’ s learn some details about this passage. You’ll be given a few minutes to read the passage again and answer the questions in Activity 2. A few minutes later. T: Now, do this activity with your partners. One asks and the other answers. OK, Question 1, who volunteers to do it?
S: Why is Zhou Kai’s mother anxious? S: Because he is going out to play football in the rain without a jacket on.

T: Next one?

T: Good. I have some words shown on the big screen. Please organize a short paragraph with the words according to the content of Zhou Kai (1). You may add more words. anxious, fever, catch a bad cold, get one’s jacket on Give the students some minutes to prepare it. T: OK, who volunteers to do it?
S: Mother eyed Zhou Kai anxiously when she saw him going out without a jacket on. She was afraid of his catching a fever and a bad cold. Finally, Zhou Kai had to obey his mother’s words and got his jacket on.
T: Excellent! Now, let’ s learn more details about Zhou Kai’ s lifestyle. Please read Zhou Kai (2) and then summarize the main idea of each paragraph. You can discuss with your partners. The students read it silently. T: OK, class, who volunteers to tell the topic sentence of each paragraph? What’ the topic sentence of Paragraph 1?
S: The topic sentence of the first paragraph is “My mother has always made sure we eat very healthily, and fresh fruit and vegetables are a very important part of our diet”.
T: Yes, right! From the first paragraph, we can see that the family really have a good diet habit. Especially, Zhou Kai, he doesn’t have a sweet tooth. Do you know the meaning of “have a sweet tooth”?
S: Sorry, we are not sure.
T: Let’s analyze it together. Zhou Kai says, “A lot of my school friends eat sweets every day but ...”. Pay attention to the word “but”, it tells us that Zhou Kai doesn’t have the same eating habit as his school friends. Following this, Zhou Kai also says, “I’ d rather eat a nice piece of fruit.” Now can you guess if Zhou Kai like eating sweets?
S: No, he doesn’t like eating sweets.
T: So, “have a sweet tooth”means: like eating sweet things. OK, what’s the topic sentence of Paragraph 2?
S: It is “ I’m quite healthy”.
T: Yes, right. But he still tells us his two unlucky experiences. Now, what about Paragraph 3?
S: The topic sentence is “I’m crazy about football”.
T: Really good! What’ s the meaning of the phrase “be crazy about” here? Does it mean someone has mental problems? Let ’s read the context. We can see a dash “—” between the two sentences, so we
know the sentence“I’m crazy about football”is used to explain the last one. The two sentences have the same meaning. The last sentence is “But there’s one thing I really love”, so the phrase “be crazy about” means “love”—love or like something very much. T: Yes, good. We can know Zhou Kai’s hobby is playing football. OK, good, now please summarize it? the whole passage in a sentence. What is
S: Zhou Kai has a healthy lifestyle.
