Key and difficult points
To understand the content of this cartoon and describe the appearance and abilities of the robot.
To develop a kind of awareness-don’t judge a person by his appearance.
Step 1: Warming-up
2. Show a video clip from the movie Big Hero 6 which shows the robot Baymax, then ask students whether they like Baymax and why.
Next, invite students to answer the questions “What can Baymax do?” “Can Baymax jump?” and lead into the topic naturally.
Step 2: Pre-reading
Show some pictures on the textbook to the students and guide them to describe the look of this robot. Then, encourage students to guess “what can the robot do?” Invite some students to share their predictions.
Step 3: While-reading
1. Extensive reading
Read the passage for students and ask them to find what robot can do and check their predictions.
Then invite two students to share the answers and write down the answers on the blackboard.
2. Intensive reading
Listen to the tape and ask students to complete the conversation on the screen:
B: These robots are _____!
S: Look at this robot. His _____are very big.
B: Can you _____?
R: Yes, _____.
B: You are great, but you’re _____.
R: Look! Now I’m _____!
Then lead students to answer and invite some of them to write down the answers on the blackboard.
3. Ask students to read after the tape to imitate the intonation and pronunciation.
Step 4: Post-reading
Let students to imagine they have just bought a new Baymax from the supermarket and their best friend is at their home. Work in groups of three and make conversation with their friend and Baymax. 6 minutes are given. Finally, invite some pairs to share their conversations and give positive comments.
Step 5: Summary and Homework
Summary: invite a student to be a little teacher and give a summary. Ask students not to judge a person by his appearance and try to learn more from him.
Homework: ask students to design their robots and introduce them to us next class.
1. Please talk about your warming-up.
As the saying goes, well begun is half done, so warming-up is very important. This part has two functions, one is to arouse students’ interest, the other is to establish a connection with the class.
First, greet my classmates. Next, show a movie called Big Hero 6 to them. The movie is about the robot Baymax. After watching the video, ask the students if they like Baymax and why. Next, I invited my classmates to answer my question - what can Baymax do? Classmates may give me some answers, such as he can cure diseases, keep healthy, and can fly. Moreover, I will ask the students if Baymax can jump? Through this activity, students’ interest can be fully stimulated and the topic of the class -- robots can be introduced.
Therefore, I think this introduction is reasonable. In the future, I will adopt various methods according to the content of the textbook, such as pictures, poems, riddles and, so on.
2. How do you evaluate this class?
Reflecting on teaching can promote the growth of teachers. I'm going to evaluate this class in three ways.
First, teaching objectives. By learning new words and text processing, students can understand the content of cartoon stories and train their reading and listening ability.
Second, teaching methods. In this class, I mainly use the Task-based Teaching Method and the Communicative Teaching Method. By completing the tasks from the simple to difficult, students can master the key and difficult points of this class. Situation creating enables the students to practice oral English in a real language environment.
Third, teaching activities. In this class, I designed various teaching activities, such as video introduction, picture prediction, extensive and intensive reading, oral communication activities. These activities can enrich the class.
Anyway, the design of this class is reasonable. Of course, there are still some disadvantages, for example, I can increase interaction between teachers and students. In future education and teaching, I will bear it in mind that students are the center of this class, and the goal is to guide students to use what they have learned in the real life.
