Isaac’s three laws for robots. Later in this unit we will learn more about his three laws.

Characteristics of science fiction

T:

As you know, the story was written in 1951. With the development of science,
some of the functions performed by Tony have come true. From this story we can
draw a conclusion: Science fiction is often based on scientific principles and
technology. Science
fiction may make predictions about life in the future. Please
remember these are some characteristics of science fiction. If you are interested, you
may write short science fictions in your spare time.

Explanation

During this procedure, play the tape recor
ding for students. Students will underline
the difficult sentences. After listening to the tape, explain the text and deal with the
language problems.

T: Now we will deal with some difficult language problems. Now I will play the
recording of the text for

you. Please make a mark where you have difficulties.

After listening to the recording, explain the difficult sentences to students. Before
explaining the difficult points, students are asked to refer to the notes to the text on
Pages 88
-
89.

T: Do you hav
e any difficulties with the text


S1:Could you please explain the sentence to us

She felt embarrassed and quickly told
him to go.

T: Because Tony didn’t look like a machine at all, when Tony offered to help her get
dressed, she was embarrassed, perhaps shy to get a “man” help her get dr
essed.

S2: How to understand this sentence: Claire thought it was ridiculous to be offered
sympathy by a robot.

T: In spite of the fact that Tony looked so human, he was just a machine. So Claire
thought it was foolish that Tony offered her sympathy. Do yo
u have any other
questions?

Ss: No.

T: Maybe someday we will have robots that have feelings and can also think for
themselves. Please remember science fiction reflects scientific thought;
things

-
come based on things

-
hand. OK, that’s all for today. Do
n’t forget to surf
the Internet to learn more about the great writer and his stories. Of course you will
learn more about robots.

教学反思:

本篇课文既是一个故事,同时也是一篇科幻文学小说,在设计上课过程的时候

我就在考虑怎么样技能让学生以文学的深度欣赏这篇文字,又能以读小说的放松
心态来进行学习,所以我抓的是
Claire
心态变化的这条主线,期望达到“寓教于
乐”这样的目的。课上过来我发现,学生对于主线的把握还是比较清晰的,但是
读故事的心态多过读文学作品的心态,不过我觉得,教学应循序渐进,能够抓住
学生们的兴趣之所在,也算是成功的。
