In the part of “classroom teaching” , Fan Xuying drew the problem “A Walk on thin ice”. The article contains a large number of rare words and professional terms. Meanwhile, the content was far away from what students could easily understand. It has become a difficult problem for teaching design to encourage high-quality innovation within a limited time. After discussing the topic with instructor Li Huiyin, making an in-depth interpretation of the teaching units, constantly improving the teaching design and program, Fan Xuying settled on the concept of “theme leading” and being “student centered”. Finally, she got the highest score of 91.78 for her teaching process and entered the national finals as the first finalist.

During the questioning session, Fan Xuying discussed the text content with Professor Mei Deming, which was highly praised by the judges and presented a wonderful feast of ideas about teaching for the audience inside and outside the forum.
