II. Reading
Paragraphs 1-3
1.What is the name of this rugby team?
The New Zealand All Blacks.
2.What do they do before every game?
Before every game, they gather in a semi-circle and begin to dance. 
3. What is the name of the dance that the rugby team performs?
Try to describe it.
The rugby players perform the haka. It is a traditional Maori dance that has been used as a war dance since the 19th century. 
 
Paragraph 4 
Find the similarities between warriors and the All Blacks players.
Warriors originally performed the war dance before battles to show off their strength in order to threaten the enemy, while the players perform this war dance to get excited and raise their spirits before the game.
 
Paragraphs 5-6 
Questions to ponder
1. How did Ernest Renan define nationalism? 
He described the “nation” as a “large-scale togetherness, made by the feeling of sacrifice.  
2.Why haka is considered a perfect act of nationalism? 
It shows the solidarity of warriors – both of Maori and non-Maori backgrounds – fighting for a common future and a recognition of an almost sacred past. 
 
Paragraph 7
Comment on the haka’s status in New Zealand.
Today in New Zealand, the haka is still performed at many different gatherings and celebrations. It is a connection to Maori ancestors.
 
III. Language study
1. The 19th century French theorist Ernest Renan, one of the first real theorists who looked into the idea of nationalism, described the “nation” as a “large-scale togetherness, made up of the feeling of the sacrifices that one has made in the past and of those that one is prepared to make in the future”. 
本句的主干为:Ernest Renan … described the “nation” as a “large-scale togetherness。one of the first real theorists 用作同位语,其中包含who引导的定语从句;made up of the feeling …用作后置定语,修饰a “large-scale togetherness;of those 指的是of the sacrifices,两个that都是引导定语从句,分别修饰sacrifices和those。
重点词:look into 调查,研究; be made up of  由……组成,构成;  make sacrifices 做出牺牲
 
IV. Role play activity 
Suppose the Rugby World Cup is being held and the All Blacks of New Zealand perform the haka before the game. Act as a reporter covering this event for the TV audience.  
You can refer to what we have learned from the text.

2.How is a planet different from a star?
Stars sometimes seem to twinkle in the night sky while planets shine steadily. Stars keep a constant position over time, while planets appear in different areas at different times. 
 
Our Solar System The Sun and other planets
 
 
 
 
 
Earth II?
•What makes life possible on a planet?
Gases like oxygen and carbon dioxide that support life; 
Water;
The temperature should not be too cold or too hot. 
 
While reading
•Scanning: 
Read the article and answer the following questions. 
ØWhat is Earth II?  Why are scientists excited about its discovery?

ØCan we visit Proxima b now?
 
What is Earth II?  Why are scientists excited over its discovery?
  It is a planet "more or less" like Earth that is orbiting Proxima Centauri, the star nearest to our solar system. Therefore, scientists are wondering if there is life on this new planet.
 
The imaginary landscape of Proxima b
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
While reading 
What has the US done to attract aliens' attention?
In the early 1970s the US sent its Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11 space probes with pictures of a man and a woman, diagrams of the solar system and space postcards. Gold records were also launched into space on Voyager probes in 1977. 
Aliens might also have heard a message from former US President Jimmy Carter.
 
While reading
Can we visit Proxima b now?
   It might not be time to plan a visit to Proxima b just yet. Even if it has an atmosphere, we would need to invent a way to get there in less than the 78,000 years and it would take at 36,000 mph (about 57,900 km/h).
