Step Nine Teaching appraisal:In this class, I stick to the theory of the task-based teaching, concentrated on the topic" Protecting the Environment", designing a chain of tasks that are closely associated with the life of the students, carrying out a close link of activities like listening, speaking, reading and writing to fulfill these tasks. These tasks are so interesting, practical, clearly-targeted, and update that the students can enjoy the pleasure of success while learning English by means of cooperating, investigating, thinking and discussing. Thus, their desire of mastering the language is initiated, their ability of cooperation is promoted and their potentiality of learning is developed.This task-based teaching design fully embodies the student-centered pedagogic thought with a purpose of “Learn to use; learn while using; use while learning’’.
