The teaching design I’m going to talk about is for unit 10, from Fun with English for primary school, Book 1A. It mainly deals with colors , I’ll describe it mainly in 5 parts.
1. Analysis of Ss
Most of the first-grade Ss haven’t learned English. But some of them have learned some basic knowledge about English in the kindergarten. They ar
e eager to learn and are interested in English. All these are to the advantages of English learning.
Analysis of the textbook
The ultimate goal of Oxford English is to develop the comprehensive ability to use the language. That is to develop their four skills, listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Firstly, knowledge objective. In this unit, Ss are required to master the five words ( red, green, yellow, brown, white) and sentence structure “ What color?”
Secondly, skill objective. Ss are going to learn how to apply the words and expressions they’ve learned in their daily life. The good news is that unit 10 is so closely connected with their daily life that it is not difficult to set a life-like language environment for them to practice what they’ve learned in class.
Thirdly, emotional objective. We should make Ss become aware of their own advantages and disadvantages in learning. And also teach them to be willing to cooperate with others. In this way to help them develop a healthy and positive character.
The key points of this lesson are the five words ( red, green, yellow, brown, white) and sentence structure “ What color?”
The difficult points of this lesson are how to motivate students’ zeal for knowledge and create life-like language situation.
There should not be fixed teaching approaches for one particular class. No matter what teaching approaches I apply, I think the Ss must play the principle role in each class. That is student-centered teaching. And also task-based learning and activity-based teaching . As we know, the main instructional aims of teaching English in primary school is to cultivate Ss’ basic abilities of listening, speaking, reading and writing and the good sense of the English language. So in this lesson, I will mainly use “ task-based” teaching method. That is to say, I’ll create an English environment and let Ss learn in real situations. According to the topic, I’ll design four kinds of teaching activities, they are singing, chanting, guessing, drawing.
Teaching aids:I will use pictures, word cards and fruit in my class.
