Step 2 Revision T：Yesterday you were asked to writing a passage about a great person.Have you finished your homework？ Ss：Yes. T：Very good.Who’d like to introduce your hero/heroine？ S 1 ：I want a try.Madam Curie is my heroine.She is a French professor of physics.She was born in Poland in 1867.In 1891 she went to study in Paris University because at that time women were not admitted to universities in Poland.When she was studying in Paris，she lived a poor life， but she worked very hard.In 1895 she married Pierre Curie，and then they worked together on the research into radioactive matter.They discovered two kinds of radioactive matter—polonium and radium.In 1904 she and her husband received a Nobel Prize for Physics.After Mr Curie died in 1906，she went on with her research.She received a second Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1911， so she became the first scientist in the world to win two Nobel Prizes. T：Excellent.Anybody else？ S 2 ：Let me try.Albert Einstein is my hero.He was born on March 14，1879 in Ulm，Wurttemberg， Germany.Einstein contributed more than any other scientist since Sir Isaac Newton to our understanding of physical reality.Einstein worked at the patent office in Bern，Switzerland from 1902 to 1909.During this period he completed an astonishing range of theoretical physics publications，written in his spare time，without the benefit of close contact with scientific literature or colleagues.The most well known of these works is Einstein’s 1905 paper proposing “the special theory of relativity.” Later in 1905 Einstein showed how mass and energy were 2 equivalent expressing it in the famous equation：E=mc .This equation became a cornerstone in the development of nuclear energy.Einstein received the Nobel Prize in 1921 but not for relativity， rather for his 1905 work on the photoelectric effect.He worked on at Princeton until the end of his life on an attempt to unify the laws of physics.
