Caty: Now, Anna, remember. When we read the news we are always reading facts. We never show our feelings.

Caty: Great. Are you ready?
Anna: Yes.
Caty: Okay, let’s try the first story!
Anna: Hello, and welcome to The News.
Anna: A new book is very popular with children and families. This is it.
Anna: It is about a lost duckling. The duck's mother cannot find him.
Caty: Stop! Anna, when you say the words “duck” and “duckling” you look really sad.
Anna: I do?
Caty: Yes. Sad is a feeling.
Anna: Sad is not a fact. Sorry. Let me try again.
Caty: Okay, she’s trying again! And go.
Anna: Hello, and welcome to The News. A new book is very popular with children and families. This is it.
Anna: It is about a lost duckling. The duck’s mother can not find ‘im. But a family gives him a home.

Anna: This story is very sad.
Caty: I have an idea. Let’s read the second story. She’s reading the second story. And … go!

Caty: Just the facts, Anna.
Anna: Right.

Caty: Stop, stop, stop!! Anna, you cannot say you are happy.
Anna: But I am happy.
Caty: But you can’t say it.
Anna: Why?
Caty: This is the News. Happy and sad are feelings. You can’t have them in The News.

City politicians in Big Town are using city money to have a big party on a cruise ship. They are taking the money for the party from the children’s library.

Learning Strategy 学习技巧

Learning Strategies are the thoughts and actions that help make learning easier or more effective.

The learning strategy for this lesson is Classify. We can classify kinds of words we learn, or groups of things we need to remember.

本课的学习技巧是归类。我们可以对单词或是需要记住的事情进行归类。

In the video for this lesson, you see Caty classifying the way she wants Anna to read the news. Caty says, "When we read the news we are always reading facts. We never show our feelings." She is classifying two different things: facts and feelings. Anna needs to learn the difference to read the news the way her boss wants her to do it.

在本课中,Caty希望Anna在播报新闻时,只读事实,不夹杂感情。她把事实和感情分开。

How do you classify when you are learning English? Write to us in the Comments section or send us an email. Teachers, see the Lesson Plan for more details on teaching this strategy.

你在学习英语时是如何利用归类这种技巧的?评论或是发邮件告诉我们。
