I Understanding of teaching material and the students.
(1) This lesson is the fourth lesson in this unit. In
the past three lessons, students have learned the
mood verbs ”should” and “ could”, and they have
learned some sentence structures, like: what should
I do? Why don’t you/Why not…? How/What
about…? In this lesson, students will learn to use
all these language points to practice speaking and
writing. Although students are familiar with this
topic, it will still be a little difficult for them to
compose a passage.
(2) Teaching and learning focus: Complain about
something politely and give out advice.
(3) Anticipated difficulty :The differences between
could and should; Use the following phrases to talk
about problems and give out suggestions: tell sb.
(not) to do, find out that…, you should/could…
According to the above analysis, I set the following

expressing their problems.
3. Moral objectives:
(1) Students will cooperate well in groups and in

II Teaching methods and learning
I adopt task-based approach. During the lesson , I will use these activities like listening to a song, guessing game, group work, pair work, role playing, survey and interview.
III Teaching procedure.
Step 1 Warming up and revision
1. Play a song “Happy Birthday to You”. Ask
students to sing after it.
Purpose:It is very useful to use a flash and an English
song to activate our students. They will
quickly pay attention to this class while they
are absorbed in the flash and the English
song. The class can be taught in a relaxing
2. Make a survey of your partner about his/her last
Use the questions like: how was your last birthday
party? Did all your friends come? Why didn’t he/she
come? What did you do then?.
Purpose: Students are usually interested in talking
about their own daily life. This activity can
help develop students’ background
knowledge and also arouse students’ interest
in reading the text.
Step 2 Presentation
Present the new words and expressions
Lead—in: Question: when I was at college, my good
friends hold a birthday party for me, and we enjoyed
a good night:
CAI shows many pictures of my birthday party. Talk freely about the games, the activities. Present : tell all of my friends to come; find out that one of my friends did not come; I was upset, gave him a call to invite her.. Purpose: In this step, my purpose is to arouse the
students’ interests and present the new
phrases in a real-life situation. Meanwhile to
help students get some necessary
1. Show a picture of Bob , a lonely kid. Question:
what’s happened to Bob. Let students read the
passage quickly and find the answer.
Purpose:Training students’ reading strategies is one
important task for English teachers. This
kind of activity will help fostering students’
2. Read again and find out Bob’s problems and
translate them into Chinese.
3. Read the passage again and tell following
sentences true or false
• 1. __ The author is popular at school.
• 2. __ The author’s friends were planning a birthday
party for his best friend.
• 3. __ Everyone in the class was invited.
• 4. __ The author exactly know where the problem
• 5. __ The author felt unhappy.
Purpose:This is a kind of detailed reading, an
important reading skill. Students are expected
to go into deeper level comprehension. It’s a
good example to develop students’
4.Role play: Make an interview : Student A acts as a reporter, Student B C D E act as those who lose their way. Use these sentences: When did you go out? Where did you go at first? How did you find that you had lost your way? What did you do when you lost your way? What should we do for fear of losing our way? Purpose: This offers students a good opportunity to
practise their oral English , so reading and
speaking skills are naturally integrated. After-reading
1. T: Imagine you come across a beggar on your
way back home, what should you do?
Show the pictures under this situation. And let
students guess what to do.
Purpose: This writing task aims to enhance students’ writing skill. In this way, the four language skills are naturally integrated
1.Interview your parent about the problems caused
by yourselves and write letter as if you were your
parent, and then write back a letter about what
you should do to solve these problems for them. Purpose: Homework is important for students to go
on practicing students’ speaking and writing
skills after class. The reason of my putting
groupwork here as homework is that this
task is repeated and easy for students to
