Step 2 Pre-writing
1. Ask them to read the passage on the book and then tell me the main idea of the short dairy. And answer the question: what did he do in the morning?
Jerry had a unhappy holiday, in the morning he watched videos, played computer games and read books
2. Brain storm: Cos Jerry didn’t have a good Saturday, the ending is not expected to be very happy. List the unhappy experience
lost the purse,
broke the leg,
locked yourself outside the door
Step 3 While-writing
Ask them to finish the according to the discussion above or based on their own experience, using simple past tense.
While writing, I will ask them to pay more attention to the spelling, grammar, and the logic of sentences.
Step 4 Post-writing
After they finished the writing, I will ask them exchange the writing with their desk mates and modify his or her drafts.
Then I will invite some students to read their writing to us, so we can some suggestions and learn from each other.
Step 5 Summary and homework
Summary: Summarize their key points listed together with the students
Homework: Tell Jerry’s experience with your ending to your parents in English.
Why do you leave the homework in this way?
Thanks for your question. The homework is Tell Jerry’s experience with the ending students added to their parents in English. The benefits are mainly standing in two aspects. On the one hand, students can use what they have learned in class to communicate with their parents. As a result, the knowledge is deepened in their mind and they are using the knowledge in daily life so that their communicative ability is enhanced. On the other hand, students and parents will spend lots of time together. Parents will come to know what their children are learning in school, which is a good way to develop the relationship between children and parents. That’s all for my answer, Thank you for listening.
