最后老师总结reduce, reuse and recycle三个关键词，学生展示他们利用各种废弃物制作的工艺品，深刻切题。
Topic: Speaking-Taking care of the earth
Level: Pre-grade 7
This was a speaking class based on the main contents in Unit 13 and Unit 14 of Elementary Maple Leaf English 5B.The teacher aimed at guiding students to analyze the relevant questions and express their opinions about the earth in a logical way and then form a integrated mind-map.There were mainly 3 parts of the mind-map and all of the contents were from students’ answers of the “3w” questions(what, why and how) .In picture reading, partner discussion and group leader presentation, all groups were highly focused on the tasked-based activities and produced a lot of creative ideas. I also took full use of the board. At the beginning of the class, there was only a drawing of the earth with half of happy face and another tearing which was a foreshadowing part of the whole class. With the teaching procedures promoting, the mind-map was completed part by part. The class started with student’s speech on the topic of how to safe water. After a short feedback given by the teacher, two groups of pictures were shown to students and asked the first “what”question- what was/is our mother earth like before/now? The students were asked to give short sentences to express their opinions with teacher's help.“We humans can't live without the natural resources on the earth”. After the transition sentences above, teacher guided the students to deal with the “why” questions. At last, students had group discussion to exchange ideas about how to take actions to take care of the earth. The students had A/B partners in discussion, it meant one could not only exchange ideas with the students in the same group but also other individuals in other groups. After a short conclusion given by teacher(three way to help: 3R-reduce, reuse and recycle), students representatives in different groups give presentation on explaining their recycling project. Because the time was limited, students didn't have time to finish the mind-map in the handout. It’s better for the middle students to have some writing practice in each class. All the objectives in this speaking class are successfully achieved. As for the Strategic Competence, teacher should give more guidance and help to consolidate the thinking. At the end of the class, they realized how important it is to protect our mother earth and we should take actions to reduce, reduce and recycle from now on.
