Teaching procedures & ways

Step Ⅰ Lead-inunit7 - 紫霞仙客 - 紫霞仙客的博客unit7 - 紫霞仙客 - 紫霞仙客的博客unit7 - 紫霞仙客 - 紫霞仙客的博客

Ask them to have a discussion in order to make them further understand the knowledge of Christmas and try to make them realize Christmas is the time when everyone should open their hearts to others and be friendly to others.

No one is an exception.

T: There are three questions to discuss.

1. How is Christmas Eve celebrated in western countries?

 Christmas is an important festival in western culture and people celebrate it in their own ways. For example, there will be a Christmas dinner. In the dinner there must be a turkey. Each family has a Christmas tree. They often decorate it to add to the festive atmosphere. 

 All kinds of things are put on the tree, such as lights, color-flowers, toys and stars. Before going to sleep, children prepare empty socks or shoes for Father Christmas to put gifts in. The next morning, they can find socks and shoes full of such gifts as toys, chocolate and candy.

2. What Christmas songs do people sing? Can you sing some of them?

3. What do you know, about Santa Claus? What is his role?

 Santa Claus , Father Christmas, is dressed in red , comes on the back of a deer, climbs down the chimney and gives Christmas presents to the children. So he is very kind .

      He plays an important role in Christmas because he brings presents for Children. What’s more, he also brings happiness and hopes for people.


Step II  Pre-reading

Get the students to know some general knowledge about Charles Dickens’ play—A Christmas Carol by asking them some simple questions. This step is very important because it is easier for the students to further understand the main idea of the play. Explain the general knowledge as patiently as possible.


Fast reading

 1. When does the story happen?

       It happens on the day before Christmas, that is to say, at Christmas Eve.

   2. Which of the two men in the picture is Ebenezer Scrooge — the boss?

The man on the left is Scrooge


Step III  Reading

1. Details checking

Ask the students questions about the main idea. But the teacher should make sure that the students can answer all the questions because only so can the students know what kind of person Scrooge is.

T: Now I think you must know the details of the play.

Please look at the sentences in the slide. Try your best to judge whether they are true or false.

1. It was cold in Scrooge’s office and Bob had to warm himself over the candles.

2. Scrooge was willing to let Bob have a day off because it would be Christmas the next day.

3. Scrooge was invited by his niece and he accepted the invitation happily.

4. A gentleman arrived at Scrooge’s office because he wanted to collect some money for the poor.

5. Scrooge didn’t want to give the poor any money because he was poor himself.

6. In Scrooge’s dream he met his old friend—Jacob Marley.


Step IV  Listening

This time the students should listen to the tape as carefully as possible. They should not only pay attention to the pronunciation and intonation but also understand the main idea of the play as well.



Step Ⅴ  Play-acting

This step aims at making the students fully involved in the situation. In this step, the students’ performances are the most important things. So the teacher should act as a guide. Don’t interrupt them if they make mistakes.


Step Ⅵ  Post-reading

In this procedure, the students are asked to read the play once more. But this time they should read the play more carefully. As a result, more difficult questions will be asked so as to check whether the students have really grasped the character of Scrooge and how his words and actions show his character.
