Good morning，ladies and gentlemen!I am very pleased to have an opportunity to talk about some of myteaching ideas.The topic of this Unit is “What should I do?” from thetextbook—go for it book 8 unit 2 for junior middle school students.I’d like tosay it from 5 parts as follows：There are teaching materials，teaching methods，learningstrategies，teaching procedures and blackboard design.
Now，Let’s come to the first part—Teaching materials.It includestwo parts，status and functions of the material and the teaching content.The thingsin the text book are appropriate to students’ interests，experiencesand knowledge;provide the students with opportunities to use the target languageand stimulate students to seek further information.In unit 2，Studentswill learn to talk about problems and learn to give advice to others.So it ishelpful to improve their communicative competence.
Ok，second，teaching content，which includes four aspects，the key vocabulary，the targetlanguage，important and difficult points, and the teaching aims.About theteaching aims，in this unit，students will talk about problems which students come up with intheir daily lives and learn to use modal verbs “could” and “should” to makesuggestions.The second is ability aims，to improve thestudents’ abilities of listening，speaking and readingby providing various tasks.The last is the affection aims，that is，to help eachother and learn to cooperate.
Next，let’s come to the second part—teaching methods.Whiledealing with this lesson，I usually adopt “Task\|based” teaching approach.It aims at providing opportunities for the learners to explore bothspoken and written language through learning activities.So，I will letthe students learn in real situations，fulfill severaltasks such as pair work or group work.And in this unit thecommunicative approach and the situational language approach will be adopted.And thefocus is on functional language usage and the ability of learners to expresstheir own ideas，feelings，attitudes，desires and needs.So combine these methods together，enable the studentsto receive，process and retain new information through “multipleintelligences”.
Next I’d like to talk about part three—Learning strategies.I usuallytell the students some learning strategies.For four languageskills，I also tell the students to learn efficiently through strategies.Saylistening，in my class I train the students to get the general ideals，makeprediction，make a reference，identify key words and signal words.About theword\|formation and the exploitation are also very important strategies.Each studentcan be involved in the class by using the strategies which are suitable forthem.
Ok now，let’s come to the fourth part—Teaching procedures.I’ll finish mylesson in 7 steps，they are Warm up—Lead in—Pre-|task—Task—cycle—Post-task—Homework—Self-assessment.This step-by-step progression allows students to build accuracy andgain confidence with the new language.
Step1? Warm up
Watch a movie called Let’s Play.The moviewill offer the students a relaxing atmosphere and develop students’ interest inEnglish.
Step2? Lead in
Brainstorming，look at this，funnypicture.He looks very blue and depressed，what’ s wrongwith him?What should he do?This brainstorming stage is helpful in providing ideas for actualspeaking.By discussing with peers they can get a lot of informationconcerning the new topic they are going to learn.
In this step I introduce the topic and give the students clearinstructions on what they will have to do.So first I willprepare some vivid and beautiful pictures to present them the new words.The studentsassociate the meaning of the vocabulary and the form of it，and theyalso practice the speaking and the listening.I’ll get thestudents to do a problem\|solving activity to help the students to recall somelanguage that may be useful for the task.I will make asummary to give a detailed explanation about the Grammar point—sentencestructure “should/could”.I usually try to cultivate the learner’s unconsciouscompetence，give the students more examples.In this way，I think theywill get a further understanding of the Grammar.
Task 1—Pair work.I’ll ask the students to work with their partners to learn to giveadvice to different problems using the key words and the grammatical points.Task 2—Listeningpractice? I designed the (1)Pre-listening activities (2) While-listening activities (3) Post-listeningactivities.Task 3—Group work.I’ll get the students act out the conversation in small groups.
In this step，I prepared two activities.First is—Let’s think.Michael，coming fromUSA.He wants to practice his Putonghua，But he is very shy.So can yougive some advice to him?I suggest that he should get a tutor，can you give more?Make a listof your suggestions.The second is—Discussion.Let’s take a look at the screen，from the picture wecan see the children are studying and living in the very poor condition，1.What’s the matterwith these children?2.What could they do?3.What should we do? (showing pictures) Put the knowledge into the real situations，elicit thestudents to find out the most efficient ways to the problem in our country.
1.Ask your parentsabout if they have some problems.if they have，Try to give advice.
2.Make a survey aboutwho are still in trouble and try to find some solutions.
In the process of teaching and learning，teachersneed to know what has been done well and what needs to be improved further;where thestudents perform well and where they still feel confused.Thediversities of classroom activities，and a welcoming andengaging learning environment will make the study easy and happy.Thus thestudents will get more experience and exploitation by doing things.
And the last Part is Blackboard design? I’ll write thenew words on the left，on the right I write the target language.If possibleI’ll draw some pictures.It is terseness and easy to understand.
Thank you for listening，goodbye!
