comment

Teachers should employ proper teaching methods and techniques to satisfy their needs.They are in great need of instructions on how to be successful language learners.

My lesson plan is designed on the basis of these two principles. The questions in my teaching plan are raised for the purpose of arousing the students\' interests and aimed to help the students to concentrate on the meaning of the text

.

In this lesson, I lead the students understand the passage step by step, and help them to understand the text. In the whole period I just act as a director, giving the students some detailed task and letting the students explore the knowledge by themselves or in teamwork.
