Step I.  Revision

Check the homework with the whole class.

Step II. Warming up

Ask the students to read the instructions and make sure they know what to do, and then have a discussion about the two pictures.

T: Today, before we begin our reading, I’d like to ask you a question, “What is the biggest sound you have heard in your life?”

S1: The sound of wind that blew in a winter night when I was very young. It sounded like a ghost who was howling. I was very frightened at that time.

S2: The biggest noise was the one that I heard when my neighbor was quarrelling with his wife. Perhaps, they broke their TV set.

T: That’s too terrible.

S3: The noise when planes take off.

S4: The sound of trains.

T: Good! I agree that all of them are big sound. But did you once heard the sound that the heaven falls and the earth cracks, in Chinese it is 天崩地裂?

Ss: No, we have no chance to hear that.

T: If there is a sound like this, what is it?

S5: When someone hears something unexpected and terrible. For example, when one of his loved families dies, he will feel this sound.

T: Terrific! You are using a literary way to express the sound.

S6: When an earthquake happens.

T: Great! I have waited for this answer for a long time. Today we’ll learn something about earthquakes. I think most of us have heard of earthquakes. Can you imagine how terrible it is ?

S7: The earth is shaking . All the buildings will fall down.

S8: Many people will die. And perhaps many children will lose their parents.

T: Yeah, earthquakes are disasters to everybody. Now look at the two pictures of Tangshan and San Francisco. Can you describe what you see in the pictures?

S1: Tangshan is a beautiful city. It has beautiful gardens, broad roads and some tall buildings.

S2: From the picture of San Francisco,I can see that it is a very big city.  There are many tall buildings thickly standing on the earth. I think the population of the city is very large.

T: Good! What will happen if there has been a big earthquake in these two cities? Work in pairs and discuss it. Then I’ll ask so me of you to show your opinion.

Step III.  Pre-reading

There are two questions in this part. Both are very interesting. The first one c

an more or less reveal the students’ values; while the second one can enlarge their imagination. No matter what their answers are, as long as they have given careful thoughts to the situations, their answers should be good.

T: Now, let’s look at the pictures. What are the predictions of an earthquake?

S1: Before an earthquake animals will become nervous. Cows, pigs, horses and dogs will be upset. And people can see mice running about. If the earthquake happens during winter, people can even see snakes.

T: Terrific! Where did you get this knowledge?

S1: From geography. I like it.

T: good. Sit down please.

S2: Madam, I don’t know the meaning of the picture with two women.

T: It doesn’t matter. You will know it soon after reading our text. OK. Imagine there is an earthquake now, and your home is shaking, at this moment you have no time to take any other things but one, what will it be?

S3: I’ll take all my money. People can’t live without money.

S4: I will take as much water as possible. Because it is said that people can keep alive for nearly 7 days by drinking without any food

S5: In that case, I’d rather take some apples, so that besides drinking, I can also eat.

S6: I will carry my grandma. She is my most loved person in this world. She brought me up.

T: What a dutiful child you are! I’m very glad to hear that. Sit down please! It seems that all of you know what you should do during an earthquake. OK. Let’s read our text, and see what it tells us.

Step IV.  Reading

In this part, teacher should ask the students to read the passage quickly for the first time to get the general idea of the passage. Ask them to pay attention to the first sentence of each paragraph.  This can help them finish exercise3 in Comprehention. It is about the main idea of each paragraph. Then ask them to read the text again carefully to obtain some details. Before reading for the second time, show some questions on the screen, and let the students read the questions first. These questions can guide them to have a good understanding about the text. They can also make preparations for Exs1-2,which are about details.


T: At first I’d like to read the text quickly to get the general idea of the article.  While reading, you should pay attention to the sentence of each paragraph.

T: Have you got the general idea of the text?

Ss: Yes.

T: What is it?

S1: There is no quick answer to this question . Are you suggesting us that the general idea is the mixture of the first sentences of each paragraph?

T: Sure.

S1:OK. That’s easy. The main idea of the passage is some signs of the earthquake, and what would happen during the quake.

T: Good, sit down please. In fact, while we are answering the questions, we have involved the sequence, the functional item for this unit. (Teacher writes the word on the blackboard ) Do you understand the meaning of the word?

Ss: No.

T: Sequence means the order of the events. It can tell us which event happens first, and which happens later.  Do you know the sequence that is used in our text?

S3: Yes. At first, the text tells us something that happened before the quake, then it tells us the things that happened during the quake and at last it tells us the things that happened after the earthquake.

T: Quite right! Now please look at the screen, these are the first sentences of each paragraph.  Read them and think if they are the main idea of the text. If necessary, you may make some changes to make more exact.

Teacher shows the screen and gives a little time to think it over.

1.      Strange things were happening in the countryside in the northeast Hebei.

2.      The disaster happened and caused a lot of loss.

3.       All hope was not lost.

Careful reading

T: Now, it’s time for us to read the text carefully. But before reading, you should read some questions first. These questions may help you get some information quickly and easily. Now look at the screen, and read the questions.

Show on the screen

1.      What natural signs of a coming disaster were there?

2.      Can you think of some reasons why these signs weren’t noticed?

3.      What events probably made the disaster worse?

4.      What situations probably made the disaster worse?

5.      How were the survivors held?

Step V.  Extension

Show the questions on the screen.

1.      From whose point of view are events described? How do you know?

2.      What is the mood of this passage? How is it created?

3.      Why do you think the writer chooses to express his feelings about the quake rather than simply reporting what had happened?

4.      Why is the title A NIGHT THE EARTH DIDN’T SLEEP?

5.      What does the sentence “Slowly, the city began to breathe again.” mean?


1.      He uses third-person to describe the quake. His description is very objective. For example, the second sentence in the third paragraph. The writer says: “Everywhere they looked nearly everything was destroyed.” The writer uses they instead of we.

2.      The mood is serious and a bit sad. It is created by giving details of how many people and animals were killed or injured, and how many buildings were destroyed.

3.      Although the writer was not there, he felt sad for the people of Tangshan. He knows that some personal feelings will make the reading more interesting.

4.      I think the reason is that, as usual, night is the time to sleep, and night should be safe and quiet. But that night everything changed. The writer uses A NIGHT THE EARTH DIDN’T SLEEP as a title to show how terrible and how unusual the night was.

5.      Here we can see that the writer compared the city to a person who suffered a lot in the disaster. He felt her pain, and he worried about her. So when he said that people came to help her, we can feel his feelings to the city. The city will not die, she has hope and she can recover from the pain.

Step VI Comprehending

Answers to Exx1-3

1.      1. C 2. E  3.B  4.D  5.A

2.      1. The walls of the villages wells had cracks in them.

2 .Roads got huge cracks

3. Brick buildings were destroyed.

4. The army helped the survivors.

5. Shelters were put up for those with no homes.

3.      1. Strange things were happening in the countryside in northeast Hebei..

1.      The disaster happened and caused a lot of loss.

2.      All hope was not lost.


Step VII Homework



Step I Revision

Teacher check the students’ homework by showing the answers to exercises1-2 in the Learning about language.

Answers to Exercise 1.

1.      pipe 2. dam 3. shocked 4.injured 5. well 6. canal 7. ruins 8. a great number of 9. at an end 10. bury 11. rise 12.rescue 13.steam

Answers to Exercise 2.

A great number of, dam, well, canals, steam, ruins injured, shocked, bury

T: OK. Before we begin today’s class, please guess the meaning of these sentences.

1.      Small incidents foretell big events.

2 Blessings never come in pairs and misfortunes never come singly

3. Where there is life, there is hope.

S1: The first sentence means people should pay attention to the small things, because these things often cause unexpected events. Just like what we have learned in the text.

S2: The most important thing in the world is life. Without life, everything will lose its meaning.

S3: It means everything has its two sides. Although the disaster is terrible, and we cannot avoid it, it can force us to try our best to foretell it more exactly and reduce the loss caused by the disaster.

Step II. Reading, writing and speaking

A thank speech

The teacher’s main task is to tell students some problems that appeared in their writings.

Show the sample on the screen, and ask the students to read it, and find something that are useful.


Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen. My name is Wang Wei. At first, I’d like to thank Mr. Zhang and the city of Tangshan for the honor of talking to you. I’d also like to thank each of you to come here today for this special occasion. Twenty-nine years ago, we experienced the terrible earthquake, which completely destroyed everything in the city. And twenty-nine years later, we get together in this beautiful park. This park makes me believe that we are indeed in the “Brave City of China”. Here I’d like to thank all of you, especially those who worked hard to save the survivors. During those days, you forgot the danger and devoted yourselves to digging out those who were trapped in ruins. Burying the dead, and building shelters and so on. I’m sure the people in Tangshan will never forget you! When I walk in the broad street, and see the new houses and offices, I can’t help expressing my thanks for those who rebuilt the city within 13 years. Also we can’t forget you. I believe our city become more beautiful in future. The spirit of its people has been and will always be strong forever! Thank you.

Two minutes later.

 T: What do you think of the speech?

 S1: The speech is very fluent.

 S2: The writer uses many Attributive Clauses. I don’t know how to use the structure.

 T:  It doesn’t matter. We’ll learn it next time. Now let’s go through exercise 4, it’s another writing task.

A little talk

A model speech has been given to the students. The students should complete the sentences after looking at the design of the new Tangshan stamps. The speeches may have many different contents. Let the students pay attention to this point: the audience is the same with the one In the last speech.

T: We can see there are four stamps showing new Tangshan. Can you describe each of them with a few words?

S1: Housing conditions for the first stamp.

S2: Street scenery of new Tangshan for the second stamp.

S3: Industry for the third one.

S4: Ocean transport for the last one.

An outline

Show the questions on the screen.

1.      Why is an outline important?

2.      What should an outline include?

3.      Why is a headline important?

4.      What are the steps to finish a newspaper story?

5.      What is the feature of a newspaper story?


1.      Because an outline will prepare you to write a better story.

2.      A good outline should have a headline, a list of main idea and a list of important details.

3.      A headline can tell the reader what the topic is, so it can attract the readers’ attention since the reader may not have bought the newspaper before they read the headline.

4.      First, organize the main ideas. Next, put some details into each paragraph.

5.      A newspaper story gives the most important news first and the least important news last.

Teacher show more examples of some newspapers on the screen and ask the students to read them and try to find the outlines in the stories.

A short story

This integrated language activity enables students to use their imaginations and to write in a literary way. You may want to encourage students to use a literary device, such as simile, personification or metaphor.

T: Now, please turn to page 62, look at the TALKING part. Read it carefully, and then tell me what the feature of this talking is.

Give them two minutes to think about this question.

S1: This talking needs us to imagine.

S2: We should write it in a literary way.

T: Good! You’ve got the point of the talking. In this task, the most important thing you should do is to make full use of your imaginations and try to use a literary way. For example, you may use simile, personification or metaphor. Now, work in groups to write down your own short stories. Attention! The stories are about the cause of earthquakes. After you’ve finished, I’ll ask some of you to read out your work..

Group One

In the center of the earth lives an evil ghost. He usually sleeps for many years. During these years, people on the earth live a happy life. But when he wakes up, he shall howl. And then people feel an earthquake.

Group Two

Some people believe that there is a magic world in the center of our earth, where lives a kind of wiser living thing. They can make UFO. When the UFO comes out to visit our world, there is an earthquake.

Group There

There are too many people on the earth, and people are building too many buildings. Besides, they dig too many and too deep holes. The earth can’t stand. She shakes, and an earthquake happens.

Step II.  Pre-reading

T: At the first period, we learned the earthquake happened in Tangshan.  In that article the writer mainly described what happened during the quake.  And the descriptions are objective.  Now, we will read a story written by America’s most popular writer, Jack London. In the article he expressed his own feeling about the San Francisco quake. His account of the disaster is both factual and literary. You may feel it when you are reading the article. At first I’d like to show you some background of this article.  Please look at the screen and read the passage.

As luck would have it, at the time of the quake, America’s most famous writer, Jack London just happened to be living near San Francisco.  His account of the disaster is both factual and literary, that is he tried to write not only for readers of that time but readers yet to come.  London, like most great writers and former journalists, knew a good story when he saw it. He and his wife rode on horseback at a fast gallop from their ranch to the hills overlooking the “ city by the bay.” What they saw both horrified and fascinated them.

Step III.  Reading

T: Now that we have known the background of the article, and something about the writer. Let’s read the article carefully, with these questions on the screen. Then you can have a discussion. After that we’ll check them together.

Show the questions on the screen

1.      Who is the man in the picture?

2.      What can we see from the word never in the sentence “Never before in history has a city been so completely destroyed”?

4.      What’s the feature of the sentences in the first paragraph?

5.      What’s the main idea of the second paragraph?

6.      What can we learn from the first sentence and the last sentence?


1.      Maybe he is the writer, Jack London.

2.      From the word never, we can feel that the writer was very sad.

3.      There are six words. They are never, nothing, gone, no, useless and burst.

4.      All the sentences in this paragraph are short ones.

5.      Out at sea it was calm.

Possible Sample


Earthquakes are terrible natural disasters.  Although we cannot avoid it, we can survive by making preparations.  Here are the essential things you should always take during an earthquake.

You should take a bottle of water.  It can keep you alive for a long time, if you are trapped under the ruins. Take some fruit, in case you are hungry.

And also take a torch light and a mobile. These can help you keep in touch with the outside world, and it is easy for rescue workers to find you quickly.

Don’t put fresh fruit in the bag as they will go bad quickly and cause problems. Don’t take money, especially don’t go back to take money when the house is shaking. You may be caught in the ruins.

Step IV  Project

This project begins by asking students to review what they have learned about earthquakes and how people have coped with these sudden natural disasters. It then asks them to apply that knowledge by making a checklist of things that should be done before, during and after a quake hits. The functional item of the unit is reviewed as students are discussing and deciding the order of their checklists. It is not necessary or likely that students will number their checklists the same. What matters is whether the sequence is logical or not. Finally, the students must choose one action from the checklist to discuss in more detail.

Answers to the PROJECT 1.      How to plan for future disaster;

2.      How to make new buildings after;

3.      How to teach children about earthquake safety;

4.      How to rescue those who still trapped in the ruins;

5.      How to take care of the survivors

6.      How to recognize shelters for survivors;

7.      Where to put information for survivors and their families;

What to do with the ruins;

8.      What to do with the buildings that survived the quake;

9.      How to repair buildings that survived the quake;

10.  Where to get money to build again;
