Part 4 Teaching Methods（教学方法）
As is known to us all, a good teaching method requires that the teacher should help students develop good sense of the English language. For achieving these aims (after the analysis of the teaching material and teaching aims), I will use the following methods according to the modern social communication teaching theories (现代社会交际教学理论). 1. Communicative Approach. (交际教学法)
2. Whole Language Teaching. (整体语言教学法) 3. Task-based Language Teaching. (任务教学法) 4.Total Situational Action (情景教学) a “scene-activity” teaching method, it establishes a real scene and the interaction between the teacher and the students. At the same time, CAI(电脑辅助教学) can provide a real situation with its sound and picture, it can develop the students’ creativity in learning English.
Part 5 Studying way: Cooperative learning; Self-exploring Part 6 Teaching aid: Multi-media
Part 7 Teaching Procedures

(1 minute) (3minutes)
Step 3 Fast reading（快速阅读）
Question: What is organic farming? Purpose of my design is to enhance the ability of finding topic sentence.
Step 4. Careful reading.
Task1.Read the text and answer the following questions: 1. Why are chemical fertilizers so popular in farming today? Possible answer: They are a great way to stop crop disease and increase production. 2. What problems can be caused by using chemical fertilizers? Possible answer: They can damage the land by killing helpful bacteria and pests and by staying in the ground and underground water for a long time. They damage people’s health by building up in their bodies and leading to cancer or other illnesses. 3. What is the main goal for using organic farming methods? Possible answer: The main goal for using organic farming methods is to grow good food and to avoid damaging the environment or people’s health.

What organic farmers do
Why do so?
Use natural waste from animals as To make the soil richer and fertilizer more fertile. Change crops every 2 or 3 years. To keep the soil fertile. To prevent wind or water from carrying away the soil. Purpose of my design: Enable students to comprehend the text correctly by using different reading skills. And proper competition can arouse the students’ interest in English learning. “Task-based” teaching method is used here to develop the students’ ability of communication and also their ability of co-operation will be well trained. . Plant grass between crops
Suppose you are a farmer and the other is a customer. The farmer is persuading the customer to buy his/her “organic food". Make a dialogue between them. Purpose of my design: I think if the students can finish this task well, they will benefit a lot in their spoken English. Most students can take their parts in the activities, especially for the students who have trouble in English study.
Step 6.Draw the organic farmland in your mind and describe it. Step 7. Homework
