Why does Josh feel that it will be good for students to wear a school uniform? 2. What does Josh prefer to wear a cotton shirt and cotton shorts when doing sport? 3. What does Josh think is more important for students to do at school? 4. What does Josh think of some school uniforms? 5. Does Josh think students should always wear school uniforms? 6. What is your opinion about wearing school uniforms? Then ask them to skim it to know the structure of it. As to passage two with the title “My Final Year” on page 91, teachers can also ask the students to read it and answer the following questions: 1. What do the students have to do to get into college in the United States?
2. Why does Sandra think Mrs. Walker is so helpful? 3. Why does Sandra have different classmates for different lessons? 4. Why might students go to school early and leave school late? 5. Besides her school work, what might help Sandra get into a good college? 6. Besides those, ask students to find out the main idea for each paragraph. 教学过程 →Step 1 Greeting and check the homework. Activity 1 Acting out a dialogue At the beginning of this period, teachers can ask some students to act out the dialogues about how to ask the way and how to ask for help. If students have some difficulty, teachers can help them go over the expressions about asking for way. Activity 2 Reading the notice In the last period, students learned what a notice is and how to write it. And they were asked to write a notice based on the given information. Now, it is time for them to exchange their writings. Teachers can ask some to read or to write on the blackboard to find out how well they have mastered. If there are some mistakes, teachers should be careful enough to correct their mistakes without hurting the students’ learning interest. One sample version: STUDENTS NOTICE Speech Contest Canceled Dear students, As the school sports meeting will be held soon, the planned Speech Contest on 8th Dec will be put off till 12th Dec. The School Office Activity 3 Discussion Students have read the two passages before class, so teachers had better check their answers to know whether they have understood them in class. If the students have some problems to deal with, teachers should help them to solve them first. Sample answers to the passage with the title “Should students wear school uniforms or not? ”: 1. Because Josh thinks a school uniform helps the students feel like part of a group. 2. Because she thinks cotton shirts or shorts are comfortable and do not need special care during sports. 3. Josh thinks what students learn at school is more important. 4. She thinks some uniforms look very boring. 5. She doesn’t think students should always wear school uniforms. 6. There are no fixed answers. Give the students freedom to express what they want to. The structure of the speech is as follows: Part 1(Para 1)Presenting the opinion. Part 2 (Para 2-4)Supporting the idea. The first idea: The main concern for students is what they learn at school, not clothes. The second idea: It is convenient to do sports and exercise in school uniforms. The third idea: The students should focus on studies. Part 3 (Para 5)Students do not need to wear uniforms outside school.
To the passage with the title “My final year” 1. They have to make sure they have a good average score in the examinations and school work, they have to take special tests called SATs, and they have to fill in a lot of forms and write letters to apply to colleges. 2. Because Mrs. Walker tells them about the colleges and helps them write letters of application. And she often helps stressed students relax. 3. Because Sandra had to attend lessons in many different classrooms with different students. 4. Because they can drive to school and to finish their homework, sometimes they need to stay at school. 5. Playing basketball in the club, going to choir practice and joining other after-school activities might help her get into a good college. Main ideas for each part: Part 1: Things have to be done before going to college. Part 2: Special counselor. Part 3: Driving to school. Part 4: Different classmates. Part 5: Homework. Part 6: School activities. →Step 2 Lead-in Teachers can ask the students to answer the question: After reading the two articles from two students, what can we learn from them? Sample answers: One of them is Sandra’s article about her school life. From her article, we know that Sandra does many after-school activities, which she thinks might help her go to a better college. This means after-school activities are very important to personal development. Then teachers can continue to ask the following: 1. What after-school activities do you have in your school? 2. Do you like them? Why/Why not? 3. If you could start a new after-school activity to enjoy with your schoolmates, what new activity would you choose? Teachers give the students enough time to discuss the questions above with their partners. Several minutes later, let the students exchanged their different ideas. Later, tell the students we’ll learn how to do after-school activities and how to start a new school club this period. →Step 3 Learning about school clubs Activity 1 Brainstorming In order to let the students know how to start a club for their after-class activities, students should know what a club is? Teachers should encourage them to say anything that they want to express about a club.
A school club is an organization for students who share a particular interest or enjoy similar activities, or a group of students who meet together to do something they are interested in. Activity 2 Listening Ask the students to listen to the recording of the articl es on page 18, and then tell if the following statements are “true” of “false”. If it is false, ask the students to correct them; if it is true, let the students repeat it. Before listening, teachers should let the students know what they are going to listen and remind them to pay attention to some details. Teachers had better advise the students to take some notes while listening, if necessary. After listening, teachers should present the statements one by one orally. Or if the students are poor at listening, teachers had better show the statements on the screen or blackboard before they listen. 1. The radio station is run by the principal. 2. The radio station started 2 years ago when CD players were allowed in school. 3. Members of Poets of the Next Generation meet up on the last Friday of every month. 4. Everyone was nice and friendly in the group. They liked the first poem Bob read to them. Activity 3 Reading After knowing what a club is, it is time for the students to read the two passages about clubs to help them to get as much information about what school clubs are like as possible. Teachers may start like this: “Now please read the articles written by two students, which are about school clubs run by students themselves. Read them quickly and find out the answers to fill in the following blanks.

The topic of this unit is “starting a new school club”. This period contains two articles written by two students, which will give the students some idea of what school clubs are like. Besides these two articles, it also has a project, which is to work in groups and design a poster advertising a new school club. This part gives out the concept of “4P” method, that is, to plan, to prepare, to produce and to present. This is the first time for the students to get to know the idea of the “4P” method. We should explain it to the students. And it will take the students a lot of time to get ready for the project. So we had better tell the students to collect some information and do something for it in advance. First the teacher can divide the students into different groups so that group work can be carried out. In doing group work, the students will get some idea of team spirit. They are supposed to learn to cooperate with their group members so that they will be able to work with their colleagues in the future. After the step, the students will collect enough information about school clubs, therefore, we will be able to guide them to finish completing the poster following the “4P” method. 三维目标 First of all, we will help the students to know something about school clubs. To do so, we will go through the two passages on page eighteen. We will use them as fast reading materials. After the students get a general idea of what school clubs are, finish the poster in groups. In the end ask some groups to present their work. 重点难点 Help the students learn how to start a new school club and design a poster for it.

Topic 1 How do these two activities attract the students? Topic 2 How do they help the students? →Step 5 Designing a poster Planning: To get a new club started, several things are needed: members in the club, common interest, meeting place, date and time. Ask the students to work in groups and decide what club they would have. After this step let the students work in groups again and decide which group members should do what tasks. Here are the tasks: Research the information: Make the poster: Present the poster:
Preparing: The first step is to find information as a preparation. About this step here are some tips. 1. Remember that you cannot possibly present everything you know on the topic in that small space. The most common er ror is including too much information. What should be included in your poster are “what, when, where, how, why and so what, now what” you should only be able to answer. 2. Include only your important points, complete sentences are not required. 3. Use larger section headings to help the readers quickly understand the poster’s organization. 4. Make your poster visually attractive but make sure that color is a plus, up to a limit without making the audience blind. Producing: The members should learn the following tips by heart: Posters must attract the audience. 1. Use primary colours instead of shocking pinks and yellows. 2. Use large fonts for the title and use leave enough space for photographs, charts and samples of children’s work—a wall of text is not attractive! 3. Make sure that small blocks of text can stand alone so that the readers who come up to your poster and read a small portion of it will understand your poster. 4. Use lots of white space around your work—light and empty space attracts the eye and the reader of course. 5. Make sure there is no spelling mistake in your poster, so run your spelling check twice! And you can ask a friend to read your draft. Presenting: During the poster presentation in class, the students will stand next to the poster and provide a brief explanation of its content to people who come by. The students are supposed to answer the questions people have about the topic. Here are some tips for the students: 1. Be able to describe the poster within 2 minutes. 2. If interested, people will ask you more questions and you can expand on the detail. 3. Dress professionally—if you look professional, you are more likely to feel and act professionally. 4. Don’t hide next to even behind your poster. Even if you’re terrified, act confident and friendly: force yourself to smile, make eye contact, say hello, ask people walking by if you can tell them a little about your poster. →Step 6 Homework 1. Preview the new words in Unit 2. 2. Finish doing the after-class work in the workbook exercises. 板书设计
