Notes on the lesson.

I. Introduction:

1) Teacher: Good morning to everyone. Welcome to our English class. Today we will speak about the problems of teenagers. Youth is a very important period in the life of a man. This is a time when a person discovers the world and tries to determine their place in the universe.

- So, the theme of our lesson is: ” Teenagers. Their problems and activities.”

2) Teacher: So, what are we going to do today? You can see the objectives of our lesson on the screen, just read (pupils are reading).

3) Teacher: You will start from lexical exercises. I’ll ask  questions, you will answer to review vocabulary which we had learnt before:

  •  What harmful habits are there among teenagers?

 Pupils: drugs, alcoholism and smoking.

  •  What is the most popular activities of modern grown – ups?

Pupils: computer games, social sites.

  •  What do the girls worry about most of all to be pretty?

Pupils: appearance.

  •  Where do the teenagers like to go dancing and to spend more time with their friends?

Pupils: parties, night clubs, discos.

4) Teacher: How can you characterize a person in one word?

Match the adjectives to the reasons:

a) never stop talking--------------- talkative

b) not say a lot  ------------------- shy

c) feel angry about not having what others have --------------  jealous

d) talk to everybody -------------- sociable

e) never betray friends ------------ loyal

f) able to think of new ideas ---------- imaginative

j) never tell lies  --------------- honest    

h) hate spending money  -------- mean

5) Teacher: Your home assignment was to find some facts about real life and problems of teens. Let’s talk about:

Pupil 1. Problem of unemployment leads to material problems. Young people have to pay for everything, they have needs, they have to pay their bills and etc., but they don't have enough money. Almost all of young people face to shortage of money.

Pupil 2. The housing problem is still unsolved. Usually young people have no chance to buy or to rent an apartment because of soaring of real estate prices. No housing and no hopes to get it. They have to live unsettled life in hard conditions. Some of them have even nowhere to live. Lack of your own dwelling prevents to create young families.

Pupil 3. Alcoholism and drug-addiction is a relatively new problem but it is becoming more and more dangerous. Millions of young people today are using drugs. Usually they want just to try it, starting with light drugs like marijuana. Then they can't stop and after year may be two years they will die. Drug-addiction is a disease. Drug and alcohol consumption can destroy individual's life. Another problem is alcoholism.

II.1.Teacher: Young people face a lot of problems which are very important for them. Everybody of you is a teenager. What problems do you have in your daily life?

You can see a diagram, complete it with problems.

5. spots;
6. drugs;
7. politics;

3. Teacher: What features are suitable if you want to describe a typical teenager? You will be divided in two teams. Write down positive and negative features.

 Pupils: selfish, brave, creative, sociable, honest, decent, fun-loving, easy-going, well-wishing, hard – working, ambitious, active, generous, lazy, jealous, mean, loyal, imaginative, rude.

4.Teacher: Read the sentences and find the adjectives you think each sentence illustrates.

1. Sarah is friendly and enjoys being with other people. (Sociable)

5. Teacher: Another item for teenagers is their free time. I offer you to watch a short film about leisure of British youth. After watching you will discuss your activities. Role play: “Pupil from Britain”. Denis is a simple British school – boy. Have a conversation about your activities.  

(Watching a film “Leisure in Britain.”)

6. Grammatical training.

Teacher: At the previous lesson we revised the Passive Voice.

When do we use and how do we form it?

Pupils:

  •  The Passive Sentences focus on the object of the action.
  •  We form the Passive Voice by means of the verb to be and the third form of the main verb.
  •  We use the Passive Voice:
    •  When we don’t know who does the action.
    •  We are not interested in who does or did the action.
    •  When it is obvious who does the action.
    •  For formalities and impersonal.
  •  When we want to say who did the action, we normally use preposition by
  •  When we want to describe something we do the action, we use the preposition with.  

Let’s do the exercise 5, page 37.  

(Put the verbs in brackets into correct tense form and voice.)

1. A lot of different material … (to use) to prepare this project.

2.  … you … (always, to share) your views with the others?

3. Look at theses certificates! I think you … (already, to active) a lot.

4. When … a thematic evaluation … (usually, to make)?

5. Our own learning …. (Should, to organize) well as we … (to have) final exams at the end of the school year.

6. All the school facilities … (to repair) by the beginning of the new school year.

 

7. Reading the text “Off the Streets”.

It's a typical Saturday afternoon on Cathedral Square in Peterborough, in the east of England. Two noisy gangs of young people are sitting in the centre of the square. One group are wearing tracksuits and baseball caps and brand-new white trainers. A lot of them are wearing jewellery like gold chains and earrings. They’re the ‘Chavs’. Opposite them are the ‘Goths’. They’re wearing black Doctor Marten boots, long black coast and black T-shirts with the names of their favourite bands on them. Some of them are wearing lipstick and eyeliner and a few of them have piercings.   Nervous shoppers hurry past them, trying not to make eye contact.  It seems to be quiet but you feel that at any moment a fight could star. The police say these young people are probably harmless – perhaps they just hand around the square because there’s nothing better to do. But older people say they are tired of putting up with the noise and litter. These kinds of problems certainly aren’t unique to Peterborough. But after trying several different methods, Peterborough City Council has a radical plan to change things. The council’s controversial plan to bring peace to the city stars on a Tuesday morning during the half-term holiday. A group of fourteen Chavs and Goths of both sexes are travelling by bus to a secret location in the countryside, ten miles out of town. There are more Chavs that Goths – maybe it’s hard for some Goths to get up in the mornings! When they finally arrive, supervisors ask them to put on camouflage clothing. And then the two gangs spend the rest of the two gangs spend the rest of the morning pretending to shoot at each other.

Don’t worry – the guns are not real (they fire plastic balls filled with paint) and it’s all for fun. But isn’t it dangerous to fight aggression with aggression? Is a game of paintball really the best way to bring young people together? Steve Mayes, the organised of the event, feels that it is. He thinks these controversial games give the two groups something to do and can start them talking. ‘It gets rid of a lot of energy too – it’s much better than playing games on Playstations and  Xboxes, ‘ he says. Meanwhile, the Chavs and Goths are fooling around: there’s a lot of shouting and laughter and everyone appears to be having fun.

Are the statements true (T) or false (F)?

1. The scenes that are described in the first paragraph don’t happen very often.

2. The shoppers in Peterborough are afraid to look at the young people in the square.

3. The police don’t think the young people are dangerous.

4. Peterborough isn’t the only place where you can find such problems.

5. Only boys are taking part in the council’s event.

6. Chavs and Goths start playing paintball together.  

8. Do the crossword. (individual cards)
