Play the game for everyone (P1)
江苏省南菁高级中学 薛海燕
I. Pre-reading: brainstorming
What are your hobbies?


Pre-reading: topic
What is your favorite sport? Why do you like it?

II. While-reading: skimming
Why is basketball so popular across the world?


III. While-reading: comparison


IV. While-reading: structure
How is the passage organized?


V. While-reading: contrast & example
Can you make a summary of the passage based on the structure of the last slide?
Key:
Basketball is popular in the US and worldwide, because it’s a sport which just needs a wall with a hoop and a ball to play. The global success of basketball is a reflection of the major cultural shifts in America, such as from segregation to integration. It’s also believed that there’s a strong link between political liberation and basketball.

VI. After-reading: critical thinking
1. How did basketball affect the cultural shift?
•African-Americans were prohibited from playing in NBA games before the 1950s.
•Earl Lloyd first started to play for the Washington Capital team.
•Since then, most of the greats of the game have been African-Americans.

2. How can playing basketball reflect being politically free?
A connection between basketball and hope
Playing in the air
Flying
Floating
Elevating above the floor
Levitating
In the dream

VII. After-reading: broadening
Talk with your partners and collect some expressions related to the playing of basketball.
Eg. As you read this, young people somewhere in the world are happily passing, dribbling and shooting.
“When it’s played the way it’s supposed to be played, basketball happens in the air; flying, floating, elevated above the floor, levitating the way oppressed peoples of this earth imagine themselves in their dreams.”

oppressed: “to govern people in an unfair and cruel way and prevent them from having opportunities and freedom”压迫

VIII. Self-reflection: discussion
The playing of Ping-Pong broke the ice between China and America. Why do you think sports can bring people together?

IX. Language focus

1. Basketball, by contrast, just needs a wall with a hoop and a ball.
Contrast: an obvious difference between two or more things 对比,差别,对照物
by/in contrast: 与之相比,相比之下
E.g., Their economy has expanded enormously, while ours, by/in contrast, has declined.
国防费用与在住房和健康上的支出形成了强烈的对比。
The amount spent on defense is in striking/sharp (= in very noticeable) contrast to that spent on housing and health.

2. So after its invention by Canadian-American physical educator James Naismith in 1891, the sport took off with US city-dwellers, who quickly became attracted to the game because it suited their circumstances.
take off : to suddenly start to be successful or popular”突然成功,飞黄腾达
Compare:
1. He took off his clothes and got into the bath.  “remove”
2. The plane took off at 8.30 am.  “begin to fly”
3. He took off two weeks in September.  “not work”
4. When he saw me, he took off in the other direction.  “leave somewhere suddenly”

Key: They are largely related to the internet.

2. Why does the Chinese younger generation prefer to do these new jobs?

Key: The biggest attractions are creativity, fame and the opportunity for self-expression, with money in fourth place.

VI. Language study
Translate the sentences. Pay attention to the sentence structures.

• given prep.(表示原因)考虑到;(表示假设)倘若,假定;
•第一个That 引导同位语从句解释说明fact
•第二个that引导宾语从句
•Who 引导定语从句
句意为:鉴于百分之85的受访者说他们认识从事新职业的人,这(近60%的受访者表示他们想要尝试新职业)也就不足为奇了。
