III.教材分析与教材重组 教材分析与教材重组
  1. 教材分析 . 本单元的话题是 Crossing limits,话题涉及的历史和地理知识庞杂,给学生理解文章带来 了较大难度。Pre-reading, Reading 和 Post-reading 部分涉及了许多背景知识,这会给学生精读 文章带来障碍。Warming Up, Listening 和 Integrating Skills 部分涉及到 Exploration 话题的空间 跨度很大,因此解决好中外、过去和现在 Exploration 的关系可以促进学生理解话题??跨越 极限。Speaking 和 Writing 以判断和劝诱为主题,旨在通过理解和学习话题,发展学生理解观 点和形成自主判断,促进学生的自主决策能力。
  1.1 WARMING UP 以4位中外航海家的图片为引线, 引出了本单元人物和话题。4
个任务设计层层深入,首先由人物事迹逐渐导向单元话题??Exploration。最后一个任务把话 题引向具体的单元话题的目标语言。
  1.2 LISTENING 包 括 Pre-listening, While-listening 和 Post-listening 三 个 部 分 。
Pre-listening 的目的是培养学生听前预测的能力,这就使得听的过程目的性很强。Post-listening 的两个任务设计各有侧重,任务1强调对听力内容的整体理解,任务2则侧重对话题思想的 理解,重在培养学生解决问题的能力。整体上来看,Listening 的设计旨在培养学生预测、选 择、判断和深层加工信息的能力。
  1.3 SPEAKING 部分包括三个 Situations。三个 Situations 都是以科学发现和探测为
主题,提出问题情境,旨在培养学生对问题情境的判断能力和运用语言解决问题的能力。问
题的情境设计具有思辨性特征,学习者只有对问题情境的深刻理解,才能做出准确的判断, 在此基础上形成决策。
  1.4 READING 部分包括 Pre-reading, Reading 和 Post-reading 三个部分。 Pre-reading
以 Silk Road 为主题,输入背景知识,促进学生对 Reading 的深刻理解。Reading 讲述了海上丝 绸之路开辟的背景、发展和繁荣,文章的后半部分重点记叙了郑和下西洋的过程和意义。 Reading 的主题内容明确,此主题是培养学生民族自豪感的好材料。Reading 的语言材料不难, 但是由于文章所记叙的内容时间跨度很大,关系略显复杂,学生不易把握文章的结构。教学 中处理好背景知识输入和读懂文章整体结构的任务设计,就基本可以很好地完成教学任务。 Post-reading 是对 Reading 内容的熟练和主题的拓展,最后一个任务升华了主题。这些任务设 计都要求学生跨越段落寻找信息,因此教学设计中要适当补充和重新设计 Tasks,以使得大多 数学生都能读透文章。
  1.5 LANGUAGE STUDY 分词汇和语法两部分。其中,Word study 的前两个练习序
列性很强,两个练习设计注重词性拓展和运用。任务中基本涉及到本单元重点词汇和常见词 汇,但是对学生而言,仅依靠这样两个任务设计是不能够达到熟练的目的,因此应该适当的 在 Homework 或者 Integrating Skills 部分运用恰当的任务设计来达到使学生能够熟练运用这些 词汇的目标。Word Study 的第三个练习训练学生在语境中运用词汇的能力,材料内容补充了 本单元话题的背景知识。Word Study 基本上呈现出了本单元的重点词汇,任务形式以训练为 载体,强调了语言知识的运用能力,因此教学中要细处理。Grammar 则分成两个 Parts. Part 1 要求学生要学会识别和判断 Predicate;Part2强调了 Predicate 在语篇中的运用。由于是复习内 容,所以两个 Task 的内容设计显得简单,可以适当补充一些 Tasks 来强化学生在写作过程中 准确运用 Predicate 的能力。
  1.6 INTEGRATING SKILLS 分为 2 部分:Reading 和 Writing。Reading 记叙了中外
Pioneers 爬越珠穆朗玛峰的过程,文章的语言内容不难,不会对学生构成整体的阅读障碍,但 文章中涉及到的一些细节知识需要学生细读才能准确把握,因此可利用本篇阅读材料重点培 养学生细节理解能力。阅读材料后的四个任务设计都是围绕细节理解展开,任务设计采用口 头回答和 Paraphrasing 的形式,目的是训练学生的口头表达能力。Writing 部分的内容以阅读 材料为背景, 以爬山是否应该带氧气为主题形成讨论, 分为两种观点。 题目设计同前面 Speaking 话题相同,训练学生的思维辨析能力,提高其运用笔头形式表达观点的能力。写作要求学生 要拓展话题,了解更多的 Mountain-climbing 事实或实例来支持观点。因此写好文章的关键重 在于事例和事实的采集、整理和分析。

  1.7
Tips 的主题内容是阅读指导, 指导学生对于不同文体和主题的阅读材料要选用不
同的阅读方法。阅读策略训练一直都是阅读指导的重点,因此可选用报刊选载、小说和科技 说明文来指导学生利用 Tips 的建议阅读,强化阅读策略训练。
  1.8 Checkpoint 2 是本单元语言知识的反馈和强化。分为谓语形式和单元话题词汇与
句式复习两个部分,此项内容可以作为反馈练习来强化单元知识。

  2. 教材重组 .
  2.1 教材的 Warming Up 和 Listening 两部分内容相关性很大,Warming Up 的材料不
仅可以导出单元话题,而且可以利用 Warming Up 的内容为 Listening 铺垫必要的语言准备。 Workbook 部分的 Listening practice 可以被用来补充更多的单元信息和训练学生的听力能力。 因此可以整合这 3 部分内容,上一节听力课。
  2.2 Speaking 的内容以 Exploration 为题,重在培养学生运用思维辨析、判断和决策
的能力,组织语言材料的难度较大。但可以借助 Warming Up 的内容和听力材料为辅助材料, 运用 Mind-Map 教学策略来帮助学生收集材料,降低难度,上一节口语课。
  2.3 Pre-reading, Reading 和 Post-Reading 三个教学环节序列性很强,互为补充。
Integrating Skills 的 Talking 部分同教材 Reading 部分内容有很大相关性,整合这 4 个环节,可 以设计一节文化背景输入→阅读→读后反思→读后讨论的流线形精读课。
  2.4 LANGUAGE STUDY 重在语言知识复习和强化,教学中通过合理设计任务,分
类组合,设计一节以语言训练为载体的语言知识学习课。
  2.5 INTEGRATING SKILLS 的 Reading 的内容相对简单,但是在单元教学中作用很
大。其内容不仅是对单元话题的拓展,也是对后面写作内容的铺垫。通过精处理,拓展话题 理解,训练语言知识,就可以起到承前启后的作用。
  2.6 INTEGRATING SKILLS 部分的写作设计是对单元话题的总结。 语言的输出方式
以 Essay 载体,以单元主题为话题,既呼应了 SPEAKING,又升华了主题。
  2.7 Work book 的 Integrating Skills 分为 Reading 和 Writing 两部分内容,Reading 的
内容同教材部分 Reading 的内容的文章结构有相似之处, 都是对历史事件和历史人物的记叙和 评价;Writing 以 Essay writing 为主题,呼应教材 Speaking 和 Writing 部分。因此可以这两部 分为载体,上一节综合实践课来强化本单元读写技能的实践运用。
  3. 课型设计与课时分配 . 课型设计与课时分配(经教材分析,根据学情,本单元可以用 7 课时教完) 1st Period Listening
2nd Period 3rd Period 4th Period 5th Period 6th Period 7th Period
