总体构想 
 (  ) 教材分析
本单元的中心话题是“Festivals”,介绍古今中外节日的种类、由来、意义以及人们的活动和习俗,旨在通过对世界各地的节日名称、由来及庆祝方式的讨论和学习。通过本单元学习,一是丰富中学生关于节日的知识;二是了解外国的节日文化、风土人情;三是让学生比较外国节日与中国节日的异同,并发现节日文化的共性、多样性和民族独特性,从而增进对多种文化节日的理解,进而拓展社会文化背景、增加跨国文化知识,同时让学生明白这样一个哲理:不管在世界的哪个角落举办什么样的节日,其宗旨是一致的:促进历史和文化的发展,有助于人们了解自己、展望未来。
 ) 教学目标 
(1)帮助学生了解世界各地的节日。
(2)了解节日的分类并进而理解节日庆祝的意义。
(3)通过阅读材料继续训练学生略读,细读,猜测词义,归纳等阅读技巧。
 )教学重点、难点
(1)理解节日的起源及意义,增强文化保护意识
(2)通过学生对多样的东西方节日、文化所进行的比较,发现节日文化的共性、多样性和民族独特性,从而增进对多种文化节日的理解。
  ) 课型:阅读课
 ) 教学设计理念
语言的学习离不开文化,英语教学从某种程度上来讲就是文化教学,对英语文化的了解和理解有利于加深本国文化的学习,培养爱国主义精神,也有利于提高人文素养。因此传授文化知识、培养文化意识和世界意识,是英语教学中一个非常重要的任务。
①运用任务型语言教学模式,训练培养学生对语言的综合运用能力.
②课堂以学生为主体,以任务为主线,重视体验参与,教师起到“设计者、研究者、促进者、协调者”的作用.
③在教学中,突出交际性,注重读写的实用性,要进行情感和策略调整,以形成积极的学习态度,促进语言实际运用能力的提高.
④正视个体差异,倡导过程激励,以多层次、多角度、多主体的结果与过程并重的评价方式激励学生进步.
 
 )教学活动反思
本节课的教学活动以“生本教育”为理念,以学生为中心展开,形式多样,有Group work,如: 让学生以四人一组的形式讨论中外两个重要的节日:中国的春节和西方的圣诞节。有
Pair work,如:Questions and answers还有individual work ,: 阅读课文时布置给学生的各项任务。小组讨论的形式使每个学生都有话可说,从而激活每位学生的思维,调动起学生想要了解更多的有关节日的兴趣,绝大多数学生发言积极,但也有个别学生不会用英语表达,只能用中文讨论。Pair work1: Which do you prefer, the Chinese Spring Festival or Christmas? Why?和问题3: Why do we celebrate the Spring Festival?使一部分同桌不能流利地表达,有的表达的很浅显,有的表达的不完整,大部分学生还是表达的很全面、很透彻,但活动的目的已达到:每位学生都在开口说英语。阅读过程分Fast reading,careful reading ,true or false , Fast reading是培养学生快速阅读概括文章中心的能力,大部分学生能在规定时间内准确概括文章的主题思想。careful reading培养学生发现问题解决问题的能力,有的学生对阅读教材处理的较好,能根据上下文猜测词汇的意思,并能完成布置的有关内容。阅读后设计Questions and answers和interview,这两部分深化了阅读课文,问使学生从课文中走到了课外。Reflective thinking和discussion 将课堂效果达到了高潮,学生把所学的知识和实际生活结合起来进行了热烈的讨论,但由于时间有限,只有两组学生在课堂上进行了阐述,所以下次应考虑Reflective thinking将去掉。让同桌间相互作你问我答,同桌间互问互答的活动形式能使每位学生都能开口,课堂气氛活跃。在问答环节的问题
