A Teaching Plan For Unit 9 “Go For It” Book 3
Teaching Aims:
● To learn about passive voice and adverbial clause with when
●To learn to use when/how long questions
●To talk about famous people
●To learn the simple past tense
Important and difficult points:
To improve the students’ abilities
Teaching Procedures:
Warming up by learning about Passive voice
What does the passive voice look like?
Compare these active sentences and passive voice sentences:
active: The boy ate the apple.
passive: The apple was eaten by the boy.
active: Mary will drive the van.
passive: The van will be driven by Mary.
Identifying S-V-DO
Only sentences which have a direct object can be made into passive voice sentences. Only verbs which take a direct object can be used in passive voice sentences. Let’s look at the sentences we saw above.
The boy ate the apple.
subject=boy, verb=ate, direct object=apple
Mary will drive the van.
subject=Mary, verb=will drive, direct object=van
You can probably identify the verb easily. The subject comes before (to the left of) the verb and the object comes after (to the right of) the verb.
Warming up by asking questions
Hello, everyone! I had a party yesterday. What kind of party? Can you guess? It was my birthday party. Yes, I was born on November 5th, 1972. What about you? Let’s find out when were you were born.
T: When is your birthday?
S: April 22
T: When were you born?
Now please pay attention to the structure
Sb + was/were + born + in + year 出生于xxxx年
We use it to express when is our birthday.For example:
I was born on October 25th, 1975.
1a Talking about international sports stars
T: Do you like sport? I think many of you like it. What sport do you like?
S: football, volleyball, tennis, table tennis, basketball and so on.

Grammar Focus
Please go over this part by yourselves. Put your questions to me if you have any. Please pay attention to the tense and the past forms of verbs. When we talk about things in the past, we should use the past tense. The past form of “be” is “was” or “were”. To the regular verbs, “ed” should be added after them. And as for the irregular verbs we should remember their past forms.
