1. How do you think about that the teacher is learning?
【參考答案】All of us want to be a good teacher. But how does it come? I think several qualities are definitely necessary: academic knowledge, the understanding of children, and the techniques and methods for teaching. As the saying goes: there is no best, but only the better. For our teachers, it means we should keep going on our job, improve our own abilities and skills of teaching. We do have a lot of ways to improve ourselves, but no matter what kinds of progress, we get them through the same way, that is learning. I appreciate every opportunity that i can learn from the textbooks, from the other teachers, from the students, even from every class i hold. This way might be hard but with pleasure.
2. Please retell your presentation.

Then i invite a student to come to the front to write down the sentences. next, i give my students 5minutes to discuss with their desk mates about the similarities between these modal verbs and ask them to share their answers. After their sharing, i make a conclusion about the usage of modal verb in this article. The function is that the modal verbs are used to express permission.
