Unit 2 Healthy Eating Foreword
With the rapid development of the economy, more and more peopl e pay much attention to the quality of life. What counts most, in term s of quality of life, is one’s health. As chairman Mao Zedong once said, “The body is the capital of revolution.” Moreover, health is the capital of all other things. No health, no wealth. Therefore, there is no happiness to speak of.

Since it is the first class of this unit, the major job is to grab students’ interests in learning. Therefore I focus on meaningful learning by
means of preparing some pictures. Most importantly, the main job of this lesson is the reading material. I am more like an authority in this part which lacks students’ enough involvement. I am afraid that I rely on the multimedia facility too much, which constraint students’ thinking, so next time I should control the use of multimedia to certain extent.
