Being a volunteer is great！
Number 77 High School is home to three very special young people: Li Huiping, Lan Pei, and Zhu Ming. These three students all volunteer their time to help other people. This volunteer work takes each of them several hours a week, so it is a major commitment. Huiping loves to read, and she puts this love to good use by working in the after-school care center at her local elementary school. Here, she helps young children to read. Pei loves animals, and plans to study to be a veterinarian when he leaves school. He spends every Saturday morning working in an animal hospital. Ming wants to be a professional singer. He sings for groups of people at the city hospital to cheer them up.
“Volunteering is great！” says Huiping. “Not only do I feel good about helping other people, but I get to spend time doing what I love to do.” Pei says he has learned more about animals. Ming says he has met some wonderful people at the hospital. The three students plan to set up a student volunteer project at their school. “Don’t put it off,” says Huiping. “Become a volunteer today！”

Closing down by reading an English poem
Falling Asleep in Class
I fell asleep in class today,
as I was awfully bored.
I laid my head upon my desk
and closed my eyes and snored.
I woke to find a piece of paper
sticking to my face.
I'd slobbered on my textbooks
and my hair was a disgrace.
My clothes were badly rumpled
and my eyes were glazed and red.
My binder left a three-ring
indentation in my head.
I slept through class, and probably
I would have slept some more,
except my students woke me
as they headed out the door.

Just for fun
Look at the pictures and make a story out of them.
Reading: I’ll send you a photo of Lucky.
Before you read, listen to the recording without looking at the article.
While you read, underline all the phrasal verbs, blacken all the expressions and circle all the linking words.
After you read, copy down all the phrasal verbs and useful expressions into your notebook.
Dear Miss Li,
I’d like to thank you for sending money to “Animal Helpers”, an organization set up to help disabled people. For sure, you have helped make it possible for me to have “Lucky”, who has filled my life with pleasure. Let me tell you my story.
Being blind, deaf, unable to walk, or use your hands easily is soothing that most people cannot imagine. But there are many people who face these challenges, and I am one of them. Because I cannot use my arms or legs well. Normal things like answering the telephone, opening and shutting doors, or carrying things have always been difficult for me. Then one day last year, a friend of mine said that she would like to help me out. She said she would talk to “Animal Helpers” to see if it would be possible for me to get a specially trained dog. She also thought a dog might cheer me up. I told her I love animals, and that I’d love to have a dog.
After six months of training with a dog at “Animal Helpers”, I was able to bring him home. My dog’s name is “Lucky”— a good name for him because I feel very lucky to have him. You see, I’m only able to have a “dog-helper” because of your kind donation！
How does Lucky help me, you might ask? Well, he has been trained to understand different instructions. For example, I say, “Lucky！Fetch my book,” and he does it at once. He is very clever, and understands many English words, even some difficult ones like “upstairs”.
Lucky is an amazing dog. I’ll send you a photo of him if you like, and I could show you how he helps me too one day. And so I thank you again for supporting “Animal Helpers”. It is very important that this organization does not run out of money. Your donation is greatly appreciated and the money is well used to help disabled people like me.
Part 2: Teaching Resources （第二部分：教学资源）
I. What is a volunteer?
A volunteer is someone who performs or offers to perform a service out of his own free will, often without payment. The year 2001 was the International Year of the Volunteer. 2005 is the UK Year of the Volunteer.
People may volunteer to perform some work, e.g., of charitable character. Some volunteer for clinical trials or other medical research, and may even donate their bodies to science after their death.
II. What is an online Volunteer?
An online volunteer is a person who contributes time and effort with an organization through an online connection, rather than in person. A wide variety of people from around the world are online volunteers and most are not technology professionals.
Online volunteers may provide advice, consultancy and perform remote administration tasks for the organisation, usually a charity or non-profit organisation. The practice of donating time online goes by other names, such as virtual volunteering, cyber service, telementoring, e-volunteering, and cyber volunteering.
There are many opportunities for people to donate their services using the internet. Online volunteers do a variety of tasks, such as translating documents, editing or preparing proposals, designing logos, researching information, developing strategic plans, reviewing budgets, creating web pages, designing flash presentations, moderating online discussion groups and managing other online volunteers.
III. What is an ICT Volunteer?
An ICT volunteer is someone who is working to foster the implementation and use of Information and Communication Technologies. He or she can install hardware, software or carry on with ICT training programmes. There is no need to be an online volunteer to be an ICT volunteer: installing hardware is a good example. Likewise, there is no need to be an ICT volunteer to be an online volunteer: teaching a language through a virtual campus is not related with ICT fostering, at least in a direct way.....

2． Revise the contents in Unit 7．
3． Check homework by asking some students to read their sentences they’ve made with the verbs． Let them hand in their homework．
4． Dictate ten words in Unit 7．
Step Ⅱ la
In this unit we learn to offer to help．
We’ll use some phrasal verbs． Each phrasal verbs has two or three words, such as clean up, cheer up, give out．
Here is an example on how to use clean up． Look at the title of Unit 8． I’ll help clean up the city parks． Repeat it twice, please．
Ask the children to read the title twice．
Then go on saying, "clean up means make a place clean and tidy, put things there in order"． Let’s see another example, We should always clean up after a picnic．
Who can explain this sentence in your own, words?
Ask one student to explain the sentence．
He or she may say like this． This sentences means we should burn wastepaper, collect litter and empty bottles, etc．
Then ask the class． Who can make more sentences with clean up?
Ask several students to share their sentences to the class．
Do the same with the other phrasal verbs．
Read the instructions to the students．
Please look at the picture now． We can see a bulletin board and two children in it． What is the bulletin board about?
Help students to answer: Volunteer Today!
Then continue saying, "Who can tell me the meaning of volunteer?"
Ask one student to try to explain it． Then tell them the meaning of it． Volunteer means a person who offers to do something unpleasant or dangerous． It means a person who offers to help the others sometimes． Volunteer is used as a verb in this lesson．
Draw the students’ attention to the three posters on the board．
We can see one sentence in each poster．
And we can see some people in each poster, too． What are the volunteers doing in each poster? Please work in pairs and talk about the posters．
Give the students a few minutes to talk about what they will say． Let them talk about all the three items． Move around and help the pairs as needed．
Then read the sentences in the posters to the class． Ask the pairs of students to explain what the sentence means in their own words． Or tell what the volunteers are doing in the posters．
For example, for the first poster, a pair might say:
It means there is trash in the park． There are papers on the ground． We can help clean up the park by picking up papers and trash． We can make the park clean．
After the students have finished all the items, ask the students to add some other ways they can help people． Get them to write the ways down in the box below the picture．
At last, ask some students to share their ideas with the class． Write any new words or phrases on the board and explain these words to the class, if necessary．
Step Ⅲ 1b
Call the students’ attention to the two lists in the box in Activity lb． Ask some students to read the eight sentences on the lists to the class． Explain any new words and phrases in it．
Make sure that all the students can understand the meanings of the eight items．
Then get the children to read the instructions together．
Say, we will hear four conversations．
Your task is to match the items in the two lists． We can see the blanks in front of the first line of each conversation． Listen to the conversations and write the letter in front of the first line of each conversation． Put the letters of the second line of conversations in right places．
Point out the sample answer to the class．
Play the recording the first time． Tell the students to only listen．
Then play the recording a second time．
Tell them to write a letter in front of each numbered sentence this time．
Check the answers．
Step Ⅳ 1c
Read the instructions with the class．
Call their attention to the example in the speech bubbles in Activity la． Ask a pair of students to read this conversation to a class． Then let them practice in pairs．
Note their pronunciation of "like to" in phrases such as, I’d like to help hungry people． Tell them English speakers usually pronounce the words "like to" as if they were spelled like-tuh．
Play the I’d like to statements on the recording to demonstrate this pronunciation．
After they’ve finished practicing the sample conversation, ask them to make up similar conversations based on the other two posters． Get two pairs to demonstrate two conversations first．
Then let the whole class practice in pairs．
After that, play the recording of activity 1b and let the children read after it twice．
Then ask them to practice similar conversations using the information in Activity 1b．
