Key and difficult point:
Key Point: master the meaning of words and phrases :period, law, advise,gold,worried about etc.
Difficult Point: use grammar of attributive clause in reading and writing
Step 1: Warming-up
2. Ask students to make several sentences using the grammar of usage of pronoun in attributive clause. Then write a sentence needing to use adverb in attributive clause. And then lead in the new grammar, adverb in attributive clause.
Step 2: Presentation
1.Ask students to open the book and read the passage to guess the meaning the bold words and then paraphrase the bold words with the help of PPT.
2. Then Ask students to find out more complex sentences that the clause is after a noun or pronoun and the words that are used to introduce the sentences: where, when, why or preposition plus which.
The time( when I first met Nelson Mandela )was a very difficult period of my life.
The school (where I studied only two years) was three kilometres away.
This was time (when one had got to have a passbook )to live in Johannesburg.
we were put in a position (in which we had either to accept we were less important, or fight the Government). ...
Then ask students to find the similarity of these sentences and invite several students to share their ideas. Then lead the students to conclude the rules of relative adverb in attributive clause and preposition plus which in attributive clause. (They all function as adverbials)
Step 3: Practice
1.Make sentences: Ask students to use the grammar that has just learnt to describe the pictures which are presented on the PPT.
2.Combine the sentences: Ask students to combine the sentences according to the grammar in attributive clause.
(1)This is a book. Its cover is blue. (whose)
(2)He is the teacher. He helped me. (who/that)
(3)Beijing is the place. I was born in this place. (where/ in which)
(4)This is the hotel. You will stay at the hotel. (where/at which)
1.Make stories: Ask students to use the grammar that has just learnt to describe the video.
2.Discussion: Ask students to tell their daily life to use the grammar that has just learnt. And after 5minutes to invite several students to share their daily life.
Step5: Summary and Homework
Summary: ask a student to conclude the content of the lesson and summarize with the whole class.
Homework: write a short passage about his daily life using the grammar that has just learnt.
1.Which way do you think is better to learn attributive clause, do exercise or use it in oral English?
(1)I think, first, the best way to learn attributive clause is tell the definition of this grammar in
sentence. For example, this is a beautiful teacher (who wears the red dress )is our teacher. Then ask students to pay attention to the clause to find the features of this sentence and conclude the attributive clause: noun/pronoun plus a whole sentence. Next tell the usage of pronoun in attributive clause. Last, teach the usage of adverb in attributive clause.
(2) Exercise and oral English should use togerther in practice attributive clasue. Doing exercise can make students master the structure of this grammar easily. And oral English can make students know the real situation of attributive clause in our daily life.
2. Do you think 'from which' in the first sentence can be replaced by 'that'?
No, I don’t think. From which is an relative adverb from the point of grammar. And that belongs to the pronoun. So it only can be used as the subject, object and so on but can not be used as the adverb or as as phrase. And this sentence doesn’t have the adverb, so we must use from which.
