高一英语 Module 2 Welocme to the Unit

Module 1 Unit 2 Welcome to the Unit

Teaching aims:

1. First students will be shown several pictures and video about growing pains to activate their echo to the growing pains, which could arouse the students’ interest in the topic.

2. After they answer several questions, they will be asked to find out the reasons of growing pains.

Through this, the students will be able to strengthen their abilities to find and solve problems.

3. Given some key words and phrases, students are required to imagine a situation according to four pictures, and then the students can improve their spoken language and imagination.

4. After a series of questions about their parents, the students will be able to analyse problems and think of questions in new ways. Also, this will contribute to their emotional experiences.

5. Through listening, the students can practise their listening ability and help them get a high level of understanding growing pains.


Teaching procedures:

Step 1   Lead-in

1.      Show pictures of growing pains and lead in:

Pictures about what often happens in the growth of teenagers

2.      Play a short video clip to arouse the students’ echo to growing pains and activate their interest.

说明:对应的PPT从第一页到第六页。首先用英文介绍一下几张图片(ppt4),引导学生说出growing pains的主题(ppt 5),然后用一个home alone的电影剪辑(ppt 6)来调动学生对主题的兴趣,从而得到学生对他们自己成长时的烦恼的一个共鸣,进而为下一步的讨论作了铺垫,也是为第二课时的reading作个铺垫。


Step 2  Discussion

Give students three questions related to the video clip to organize them to discuss the subtopics to further main topic.(ask several students to give a feedback)

1. Do your parents sometimes interfere in your life and make decisions for you? And How?

2. Will you talk to your parents when you have a problem?

3. Do your parents trust you?

And then by showing the possible growing pains to enlarge students understanding of growing pains, and then ask students to find out the main reason of growing pains.

Why do these happen more often than not?

Generation gap means there are great differences between the younger generations and the elders.

     It occurs when older and younger people do not understand each other because of their different experiences, opinions, habits and behaviour. Especially as one gets older, she or he isn’t always understood by the elders, because of what she or he does, says or wears. So she or he will often have trouble or pains during their growth.

说明:设计ppt从7-9。通过上面的电影剪辑,学生会发现父母与孩子之间存在的误解,进而产生一些烦恼,通过学生的讨论 (ppt 7)把这些烦恼结合自身体验简单罗列,然后教师给出主要的growing pains,通过一个图表形式展现(ppt 8)。然后,让学生分析这些现象所产生的原因,引导其得出“代沟”的答案,然后对代沟进行简单解释,以及产生的条件,使学生对问题产生的原因有个初步概念,也是为后面如何解决代沟问题作个伏笔。


Step 3  Situational Imagination

1.      According to the 4 pictures in the textbook, students are required to create a situation to describe growing pains. Besides, the teacher will give some key words and phrases on the black board. (This is a group work, so the students are divided into 4 groups to compete for a prize.)

Pic 1 last Sunday, Li Lei, turn up, shout at, angry, embarrassed, at a loss, confused

Pic 2 Wendy, not later than 6 o’clock, late, 7 o’clock, explain, not trust, depressed

Pic 3 Lisa, ask for signature( 签名 ), a waste of time, regretful, angry, interest

Pic 4 Tom, play computer games, upset and angry, a rest, a time limit, control oneself

2.Then the teacher could give a sample answer on the computer screen to help them.

说明:对应的ppt从10-11。从上面了解了growing pains的主要原因后,进而对growing pains的出现情况通过课文的图片进行情景创作,通过这个过程培养学生的想象力和提高学生的口语表达能力,也是对刚才第二步骤的一个加深过程,让学生学会如何表达自己的烦恼。在黑板上要把上面的提示词写上,配合屏幕来做这个group work.。一共四个小组,每组抽签决定一张图片,进行创作,对创作较好的给予奖励。 

Step 4 Further Discussion

Ask the students to futher discuss the question:

Do you think there is a generation gap between you and your parents? If so, what is the best

way to solve the problem?

说明:对应的PPT从12-18。再进行了上面的活动后,学生对自己的growing pains 进行了描述,那么就要想办法解决问题,所以在这个步骤中讨论如何解决上文中提到的根本原因“代沟”,引导学生讨论从PPT13-17引导学生从父母亲的角度去思考,如何NARROW THE GAP。请几个小组反馈一下,再用PPT18给出一个可行的方式,更好地帮助学生解决问题。

Step 5 Listening

Why are there so many misunderstandings between parents and children? In my opinion, the reasons can be listed as follows. First of all, the two generations, having grown up at different t_____, have different l____ and d________, and that is why the d__________   often arise between them.

Secondly, having little in c_____ to talk about, they are not willing to sit face to face. Last but not least, with the pace of modern life becoming faster and faster, they both are so busy with their work or study that they can’t spare enough time to e_______ their ideas.

Keys: difficult, misunderstandings, problems, generation gap, old-fashioned, times, likes, dislikes, disagreements, common, exchange

The teacher will read the passage for students, and, at the same time, they are required to fill in the missing blanks.

说明:PPT19-21。通过听力填空,一方面使学生听力得到训练,另一方面,使学生对如何处理growing pains给出一个全面的认识,从而结束本课时,让学生对growing pains这个主题积累充足的信息,也为下一课时做好了充分的准备。

Step 6  Homework

1. Write a note of how to communicate with your parents in terms of one of your growing pains.

2. Preview the new words of Reading and the play in Reading.
