SkimmingRead the article quickly and answer the question.•What circus is this article about, and what happened to it?• The US’ Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, one of the world’s biggest circuses, gave its last show at the Nassau County Coliseum in New York on May 21, 2017. III. ScanningRead the article carefully and answer the following questions.1.What do people working in a circus say at the end of each show, and why?They never say “goodbye” to each other.

Why does the author say “For generations, Ringling’s famous slogan – ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’ seemed indisputable”?During the 19th century, Ringling brought world-class performances to small towns in America.During the 20th century, Ringling managed to survive as movies, television and computers competed for the public’s attention.It was a tradition for people in the 1950s and 1960s to go to the circus. 3. What mainly led to the circus’s closure in the 21st century?It lost its most important animal performers, the elephants.  4. What can we conclude from the last two paragraphs? Although the circus experience will probably disappear forever, the good memories it left us will always stay. IV. Language focus-----sentence pattern1. During the 19th century, Ringling traveled by train across a still-growing America, bringing world-class performances to small towns, often shutting down local streets as animals paraded (行进) toward the showgrounds.Note:•bringing… 和shutting down…是现在分词短语作状语。as引导了时间状语从句。 2. Following the transition (转变) of the elephants, the company saw a decline (减少) in ticket sales greater than could have been anticipated (预料).Note:•Following the transition…作状语,相当于After the transition…•see/ witness: to be the time when an event happens, or the place where it happens•E.g., The stadium has seen many thrilling football games. 3. But while it’s true that the Ringling circus experience is something that will probably disappear forever, some part of it will always stay.Note:•while引导了让步状语从句,相当于though/although.•it’s true that…中的that…是主语从句,that will…是that引导的定语从句,修饰先行词something。 IV.
