By studying No Boundaries, the Ss can improve their reading ability; get know something about the famous scientist Stephen Hawking; and learn the spirit of Hawking. At the same time, we should get the students to discuss something about Hawking to improve their oral ability and understand the passage better. Let the Ss become stronger-mind to face the difficulty in their lives. On studying the teaching material and analyzing the regulation of the Ss’ growing of mind, I put forward the teaching objectives according to English Syllabus and new lesson standard.

Something about the Ss:
The senior students have learned some vocabularies, so they can express their ideas to some extent.
Some Ss are not active in the class because they are afraid of making mistakes. So we should encourage them to practice.
Well, I’ll talk about my teaching methods below.
Part 2 Teaching Methods:
According to the modern perception theories and social intercourse teaching theories, I adopts the question-and–answer method, cooperate method and discussion method in my teaching.
First, question-and–answer method, to some degree, it can arouse Ss’ interest and develop their corpus.

After feeling and comprehending the passage, let the Ss talk something about Hawking in their own words. Thereby, develop the Ss’ abilities of organization the language and cultivate their thinking.
Part 4 Teaching Process:
In order to realize the teaching process systematically, properly and efficiently, under the principle of “regard Ss as the corpus, the teacher inspires for predominance”, I divided the teaching process into six steps.
Step 1 Lead-in
First, I show the question ‘…may not have more than twelve months to live. How would you feel? What would you do?’ on the PowerPoint and ask the Ss to say something about it. And then show what Stephen Hawking thought on the PowerPoint. The purpose is to arouse the Ss’ interest of the study on Hawking.
Step 2 Fast reading
Before fast reading, here some questions for them.
1 Why did Stephen Hawking need a PhD?
2 When did Hawking become famous?
3. When did Hawking visit Beijing?
The purpose is to concentrate the Ss’s thinking, make them find the answer quickly to develop some basic skills of reading. It also prepares for knowing something about Hawking and understanding the main idea of the text.
Step 3 Careful reading
Ask the students to read the text carefully and find the information about Hawking’s misfortune, attitude towards difficulty, and his achievements, also the results from his disease. Then fill the information in a form. Show the form on the PowerPoint. Four minutes later, check the answers with the whole class. From this form Ss can have a clear image of Stephen Hawking. Ask Ss to discuss with group members: What should we learn from Stephen Hawking? Students are given several minutes to discuss. Several minutes later, spokesmen or spokeswomen from different groups will stand up and speak out their opinions. Different people have different opinions. So it is easy to make the class the fullest. By designing the question, the Ss’ learn the spirit of Hawking. It is a good case point of “regard Ss as the corpus, the teacher inspires for predominance”.
Step 4 Sum up the main idea of each part
During this procedure Teacher will play the tape for students. Students will underline the head sentences. After listening to the tape, students will grasp the main idea of the text.
