教 后 反 思

成功之处:本节课以参观上海野生动物园这一活动为线索,主要游览了熊猫馆、虎穴和猴山。在熊猫馆主要帮助学生复习Unit4Reading和Maintask,描述大熊猫外形、生活习性、生长过程、生存状况等,培养学生对语言的运用和领悟能力。虎穴主要训练学生的听力,帮助学生了解更多关于老虎的生活习性、生存状况等情况;同时复习本单元重点语法if从句的使用。猴山主要训练学生的口头表达能力,学生自由讨论参观猴山应做什么,不应该做什么;还复习了本单元重点because和because of的不同用法。本节课的总体思路是先引导学生说,再总结本单元重要语法内容,最后进行专项强化训练,课堂当场巩固,使学生从知识能力上,到情感上都得到提高。本节课合理使用学案,听说读写全面训练,让英语教学真正落到实处。


1. 少数同学的课堂参与热情不高。受传统教学的影响,少数学生不敢大胆讲英语,怕出错。这就需要我们在平时的教学中加强口语训练,多给学生创设语境,给学生留足够的自由支配时间,鼓励学生多用英语进行交流。

2. 对学生的阅读分析理解能力训练不够。尤其是在指导学生学习方法方面稍显粗糙。


1 .引导学生小组考核,要求人人参与,人人为组争光。组长设计表格,统计每一位同学的课堂参与情况,评选小组之星。

2. 鼓励学生阅读更多关于动物的美文。增加课堂阅读量,限时训练。
