Teaching Process Design
1. Students’ Activities
1) Greet the students and check the homework
T: Hi/Hello/Good morning, everyone/class! How are you today? It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it?
Ss: Yes, it’s sunny.
T: Ok, Let me check your homework first.
(a few minutes later)
2) Prepare for the new lesson
T: let’s try to remember what we learned yesterday. We talked about Li Ming’s school. In this lesson, we will talk about something new.
(Take out the banana, book and a piece of clothes of the bag)
T: Can anyone guess why I have brought these things? What is the connection between these things? Please guess. Look, this is my red blouse, I’ve told you I like red very much. And the book, it’s my birthday present last year. Yes, this is a banana. I often buy bananas because I like eating bananas.
Ss: You like all of them!
T: Very good, you got it!
2. New lesson
Step 1: lead in(Show the three things )
T: These are the things I like best. Next I want to know more about you.
Step 2: Discussion before the new lesson
T: Look at the questions in “Think About It!” and discuss about them.
(introduce the questions to the Ss and give them five minutes to discuss)
T: All right! Time for me to know how well you know about your friends. S1, who is your best friend?
S1: Wang Gang.
T: What do you know about him?
S1: He likes basketball very much.
T: What about you, S2?
S2: My best friend is my cousin, she likes school.
T: Good! S3, talk about the favourite photo of yourself, please. When was it taken?
S3: Just in the summer holiday.
T: Good! What about you, S4? When was your favourite photo taken? And where?
S4: It was taken in Beijing last year. My father took the photo for me.
Step 3: Discussion about the picture in the textbook
T: Look at the picture in your books and let’s talk about it: what is in the girl’s hands? What is she doing?
(introduce the word “wish” to the students and make sure they know the meaning of “photo”)
Step 4: Further discussion
Ask about the title of this lesson: Why is the lesson called “Many faces, One picture?”
Step 5: listen and find the answer
Ask the Ss to listen to the tape and find the right answer; the answer is in the text. Check the answer with the Ss:
Answer: Everyone brings a photo of him or her. We put them together and make a big picture of our class. There are many faces of the students in the big picture.
Step 6: Project 1: Make a class picture
Make sure the Ss understand what they must do in the project. Explain what a collage is. (in Chinese if necessary) A collage is a picture made of many little pictures.
T: Draw a picture of yourself if you don’t have a photo. Write down at least three sentences about yourself on a small piece of paper. That’s your name card. Of course, our cards are better.
(After a few minutes, Ask several Ss a few questions to help them describe themselves.) The questions can go like this:
1. What is your name?
2. How old are you?
3. How tall are you?
4. What are you wearing in your picture or photograph?
5. What do you like to do?
6. Where do you live?
(The class will make a collage.
T: First, work in pairs please! Ask your deskmate questions about themselves. Then ask other members in your group similar questions.
(Let the Ss find their own partner to practise. Using the sentences in their cards. Encourage the Ss to read what they have written down. Then use their own words.)
T: Now, it’s the time for us to introduce your partners to out class now. S5, introduce your classmates, please.
(After the Ss’ introductions, ask them to glue the pictures to a big sheet of paper for the whole class. Several Ss can glue at the same time.)
At the end, the class has a collage! Post the collage in the classroom or the halfway for everyone to see.
