The teacher should explain the sentences and points.21 教育名师原创作品 ☆教材解读☆ 1.It is also very hard to take in air as you get near the top. ◆“It is + adj.+ to do sth.”句型中 It 作形式主语放在句首,而把真正的主语放在 句尾。常用于此句型的形容词有 important,difficult,dangerous,necessary,useful,possible 等,用来对 to do sth.进行 说明。此句型可以转换成“To do sth.is+adj.”。 It is important to study English well. 学好英语很重要。 It’s very difficult to climb Qomolangma. 攀登珠穆朗玛峰很难。 ◆as 作连词,相当于 when。as 引导时间状语从句,作“当……的时候”解,有“随着……” 之意,与 while 意义相近,强调两个动作同时发生,或某事一发生,另一事立即发生。 He shouted aloud as he ran along. 他一边往前跑,一边高声地呼喊。 I was startled as he opened the door. 他一开门,我吓了一跳。 2.The spirit of these climbers shows us that we should never give up trying to achieve our dreams. ◆give up 意为“放弃”,后面可以接名词、代词或动名词作宾语。如果宾语是名词, 那么名词可以放在 give 和 up 之间,也可以放在 up 之后;如果宾语是代词,那么代词只能 放在 give 和 up 之间。 My uncle wants to give up drinking wine. 我叔叔想戒酒。
Although English isn’t easy to learn,I won’t give it up.虽然英语不易学,但 我不会放弃。
◆achieve v.达到;完成;成功。 At last,he achieved his dream. 最后,他实现了他的梦想。 【辨析】 achieve,come true (1) achieve 指实现梦想、目标,主语是人。 He hopes to achieve all his aims soon. 他希望尽快达到所有目标。 (2) come true 实现,主语多是梦想、蓝图、计划等。 At last,his dream came true. 最后,他实现了他的梦想。 3.Why do so many people try to climb this mountain even though it is dangerous? even though 用作从属连词,意为“即使;尽管”,相当于 even if,引导让步状语从句, 不与并列连词 but 连用。 Mr.Wang will come on time even though it rains.尽管下雨,王老师也会按时来。 Even if you are with your friends,it is better to keep your voice down in public places.即使你与朋友在一起,在公共场合也不要大声喧哗。 【拓展】 引导让步状语从句的还有 though/although 虽然,whoever/no matter who 无论谁,however/no matter how 无论怎样,whatever/no matter what 无论什么等。 Task 6:Post-reading activities Ask students to retell the passage according to the points.

interesting fact is that whales can jump high out of the water.Some kinds of whales
are in danger because humans catch them for meat,fat and oil,and use whale parts
to make candles and soap.Whales are also in danger from water pollution.We should

the sea.I think people should learn more about whales.

With more and more cars on the road,the traffic jam will happen.How do we see it
and how can we solve the problem?
We know that the traffic jam happens in many places,especially in big cities.What
are reasons for the problem? On one hand,some people think that they should have
cars when they have enough money,and then it’s easy to go out and they can feel
comfortable.On the other hand,a growing number of people hope to use their cars to
show off (炫耀).What’s more,years of research has shown that one of other reasons
for the traffic jam is the driving habit.For example,many young people enjoy driving
very fast,so they can feel excited.At last,most of them hardly care about the speed
Many governments are working at how to make the traffic better.In my
opinion,firstly,the government should educate those people who have cars or plan
to buy cars.The government must make them know that the traffic jam is very
serious,and set up a much more perfect traffic system(体系) to solve the traffic

C Chogori (乔戈里峰) stands on the Chinese-Pakistan border.Chogori is from the Tajik language,it means “high,great and magnificent(瑰丽的)”.Internationally,it is better known as K2.Chogori is about 8,611 meters high,and it is the second highest mountain in the world. And Chogori is not Qomolangma.On one hand,Chogori is a steeper(更陡峭的)and more dangerous peak (山峰).In fact,it is the most difficult peak to reach in the world.The first two people to reach the top of Chogori—Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni from Italy—did it in 1954.In 1986,the first woman did it too.Since 1954,only 281 people have reached the top,and 49 others have been killed (However,Qomolangma has been reached 3,000 times and only 15 climbers lost their lives).Of all the over 8,000-meter-high peaks,it has the highest death rate. On the other hand,this great peak is for professional climbers only.Here,no commercial(商业的)climbing organization will provide you any services,and even top-class (一流的;顶级的) climbers will choose their climbing partners with a particularly eagle(鹰)eye.The leader of a Japanese K2 team said when organizing his team in 1982,“We are professional climbers,and all know that if we run into trouble at a height of 8,000 meters on K2,it is impossible to get help.If you do not have the confidence and determination(决心)to face possible trouble,you should not go! ” This is Chogori! In the eyes of the top-class climbers,it is the most beautiful peak,and it is the danger that attracts them. 根据短文内容回答问题 56.Where is Chogori? _____________________________________________________________________________ 57.What’s the height of Chogori? _____________________________________________________________________________
58.When did the first two people reach the top of Chogori?

Ⅳ.Pandas are one of the most lovely animals.They are black and white.People in the world like them very much.There used to be many pandas in China long ago.As the balance of nature was destroyed and the weather was getting warmer and warmer,humans started to cut down forests.But at present,the number of pandas is increasing year by year.There are now so many pandas that some are being sent to other countries so that people there can enjoy them. Now,the Chinese government is trying to save the pandas.The biggest nature park for pandas is in Sichuan.There is a research centre for nature and wild life there.Scientists hope that one day they will have enough pandas to live in the forest again.
