-------Unit 2 What’s the matter?
Part 1 Analysis of the teaching material
1. Unit 2 What’s the matter? Comes from Go for it Book 2 Section 2. This unit selects from our daily life, about health. In this unit I will
start with groups of pictures and PPT to show new words of
ody parts and illnesses. As we all know that interest is best b
teacher for students. Then they will learn new words in theirs
interests. And I play a word game to enhance the new words. In
the active game they will keep the new words in mind. And then
leading the new pattern“What’s the matter? I have a cold.” by
some illness pictures. The vivid pictures draw students’ attention
to learn the pattern and I will let them practice it in pair work or
group work. They can grasp the vocabulary in the practice. And
now they can use the pattern to concern others health problems
and answer the questions properly. When we find a problem, we
had better solve it. Therefore I introduce the new vocabulary
give advice(提建议)？then students think some advice in Chinese,
and I will give these advice in English in a chart. I will teach
them these words to words. How to deal with the illness
problems? Then give advice. It has an important role in the book,
and the illness is the most important, because it often checked in
many examinations. At finally, I will explain them to use the
model verb“should” and “shouldn’t” in giving advice. In that
way students can grasp the vocabulary clearly.
