First of all, I would like to talk about the analysis of teaching material. This lesson is chosen from PEP English book of junior high school, grade 7, Unit 7. It is about weather. Students are supposed to learn present progressive tense in this lesson, this lesson is very important because it is a basic grammar focus .
Then let me talk about the analysis of students. Students in junior school are generally interested in English. They have strong curiosity and thirst for knowledge, the simple repetition of the text by teacher is no longer meet their satisfaction. They cline to evaluate themselves according to others’ opinions on them, so they pretty care about others’ evaluation. So during my class, I will give them more encourage to help them build up the confidence in learning English.
