三、本单元各部分材料分析

1. Welcome to this unit

内容:⑴ Eddie和Hobo的对话.

⑵ 香港不同时代的交通工具.

作用:热身,为后面作好铺垫,激发学生的学习兴趣。

本课可以看做是一个单元的读前热身活动。在备课时应先阅读整个单元,了解本单元的话题、功能和语法项目以及中心任务,同时,了解学生在这些方面的已有知识。在此基础上,教师才能在这一课时有效激活学生的已有知识,充分调动学生对本单元的学习兴趣,为后面几个课时的学习做好铺垫。


Unit 1 past and present

2. Reading

内容:Lily 采访Mr Dong关于九龙城的变迁。

作用:单元的核心,训练学生阅读理解能力

阅读是一个单元语言输入比较集中的环节,一般用两个课时完成。阅读教学主要围绕阅读材料本身的内容展开活动,要求学生说出文章的大意,将细节内容归类等。阅读后的活动旨在让学生通过提问、讨论和语言难点的学习等形式进一步加深对文章的理解。阅读课还应该配合听、说、写的活动,培养学生综合运用英语的能力。


Unit 1 past and present

3. Vocabulary

词汇部分围绕本单元话题介绍一些新词,方便学生在后面的学习活动中使用,同时,按词义将同一类别的单词集中学习,有利于提高学生单词学习的效率,快速扩大词汇量。教师在教学中可根据实际情况对该部分的词汇进行补充,并帮助学生掌握一些单词记忆的方法。

在教授语法项目时,第一,语言结构尽量用图表的形式表达,使语法结构一目了然。第二,坚持在尽量真实的语境中呈现和练习语法项目。第三,从分步呈现、分步练习到综合运用,层次清晰,循序渐进。第四,学生通过观察和实践自己总结语言规律,符合语言学习的一般规律。教学中应将语言的意义、情景和实际运用放在首位。


Unit 1 past and present

5. Integrated Skills

You have been in this school for about two years.

And you have been in this school since 2003.(板书)

T: Yeah, Eddie has lived with Millie for four years.(板书)


Unit 1 past and present

III. While-task

Task 1

Let the students know that the sentences on the board all include the present perfect tense.

Tell the students: We use the simple past tense to talk about what happened at a definite time in the past, like ‘Eddie was born four years ago’.

We use the present perfect tense to talk about things that started in the past and still have some connection with the present, like ‘Eddie has lived with Millie since he was born’. ‘Eddie has lived with Millie for four years.’


Unit 1 past and present

Task 2

We make positive and negative sentences using the present perfect tense like this.

We form the present perfect tense by adding ‘have’

or ‘has’ before a past participle.

e.g. have/has + seen/ done/ sung/, etc.


Unit 1 past and present

Task 3

Tell the student how to write the past participle of verbs.

1) We add ‘-ed’ to regular verbs. (板书)


Unit 1 past and present

  • We form the irregular verbs differently. We do not add ‘-ed’. Ask the students to look at the table of irregular verbs on Page 112. Ask the students to remember the past participle of irregular verbs.

    动词原形 动词过去式 动词过去分词

  • A B B bring brought brought

  • A B C do did done

  • A A A let let let

  • A B A come came come

  • A A B beat beat beaten


Unit 1 past and present

Task 4 (A1)

Here is a short exercise for students to finish. Ask the students to complete the table with the correct past participle on page 10. And then work out the rule.

Task 5 (A2)

After the short exercise, ask the students to complete the sentences using the present perfect. Help them to complete. Ask them not to forget the verb ‘have’/ ‘has’.

Present the Present perfect tense briefly.

Subject + have/has+ past participle


Unit 1 past and present

Task 6

Teach the students how to ask and answer questions using the present perfect tense.

e.g. Have you arrived? Yes, I have. / No, I haven’t.

Has she left? Yes, she has. / No, she hasn’t.(板书)

The teacher asks the students some more questions .

Task 7 Chat time (A3)

Millie and Sandy are talking about a film about Hong Kong. Complete their conversation using the correct forms of the verbs in brackets.

1)Give them several minutes to complete it.

2)Check the answers with the whole class.

Unit 1 past and present

IV.Post-task

Ask the students to make sentences with the present perfect tense. Students ask each other “Have you ever…?” When a student has found a person who has done the following things, they write a complete sentence, e.g. “Li Hua has traveled to Beijing.”
