Group Project "To Ukraine with Love"
як форма інтерактивної роботи на уроках англійської мови
Важливою вимогою суспільства до особистості є набуття вмінь і навичок, що сприяють розвиткові та самореалізації особистості. Це завдання значною мірою вирішується через запровадження інноваційних технологій, серед яких важливу роль відіграють інтерактивні технології.
Метод учбових проектів – одна з форм інтерактиву. Працюючи над проектом, учні вчаться працювати в групі, допомагати та підтримувати одне одного, відшукувати інформацію з різних джерел, оформляти матеріал та представляти його, оцінювати свою роботу на фоні інших, порівнювати свій власний рівень володіння мовою та бачити досягнення. Проектна діяльність допомагає учням набути навичок пошукової роботи через практичну самостійну та колективну роботу з додатковою літературою, розв’язати проблемну ситуацію та набути навичок застосування отриманих знань, набути позитивного досвіду групової роботи.
Організація роботи здійснюється за планом :
1. Вибір теми проекту з обов’язковим урахуванням актуальності, зацікавленості та практичного використання результатів.
2. Підбір учителем питань та завдань, формулювання мети, розробка плану роботи над проектом.
3. Формування груп, визначення лідерів, оголошення теми та мети проекту, обговорення плану роботи.
4. Періодичний контроль та короткий звіт представників груп про виконаний обсяг робіт проводиться на початку уроку.
6. Попередні консультації груп з учителем, підготовка до презентації.
7. Презентація та захист проекту.
8. Оголошення підсумків та їх обговорення.
Частина проектів є груповими й виконується під загальним гаслом «Навчання у співпраці». Створюються тимчасові групи по 4-5 учнів, які виконують різні за типом та часом виконання проекти. Групи є мобільними і під час виконання нового проекту , склад змінюється. Це дає можливість змінювати свою позицію у групі: одного разу ти – лідер, іншим разом – консультант або рядовий член команди. Даний метод можна застосовувати на поточних уроках, під час підготовки позакласних заходів, проведення літньої навчальної практики.

Every year Ukraine celebrates the anniversary of its independence and we need to analyze the achievements of our country. That’s why it is very useful for us to know the history of Ukraine. Every bird likes its own nest, the proverb says. We love our Ukraine and we are proud to say we are Ukrainians.
I‘d like to tell a legend about Ukraine. Many years ago the God made peoples and gave them the land. Our forefathers were late and they were not given land. They came to the God. He was praying at that moment and they did not interrupt him. They waited. The god said that they were good and respectful. They told him about the reason for their coming. The God proposed them the black land (soil). Our forefathers said, “No, the German, French, Spanish and Italian people live there. ” And the God answered, “Then I’ll give you the land I have left for the paradise. There is everything there: rivers, lakes, forests, deserts. But remember: if you take care of it, it will be yours, if not – it will belong to your enemies.”
Our forefathers went to that land, settled there and have lived up there till nowadays. And their country was called Ukraine.
OF DEBATING CLUB
Teacher: Today we gathered to generalize our knowledge concerning the theme “Ukraine”. The lesson isn’t usual. We are going to have the meeting of our debating club. Your assignment was to be divided into groups or pairs where everyone had his own task to show your speaking skills.
So, guys, go ahead.
Student 1: (in folk clothes) My native land... A cherry garden flourishing in spring, a quiet river, a field of sunflowers that stretches far belong the horizon.
Student 2: (in folk clothes) My native land... The street where my friends and I live, the school we all go to, the old park we used to play in when we were kids.
Ukraine! Ukraine, Motherland, and Homeland are some sacred words for everyone. These words are full of deep meaning for all of us.
Student 1: I’d like to start our meeting with the words of the famous Ukrainian poet Vasyl Symonenko:
Native land of mine! My mind is brighter,
Tenderness and love in my soul grow.
When you’re mighty hopes and dreams uplifting.
In my life here strong and steady flow
You are bread for me, my aim for living
From your soul I came and shall return
And beneath your high domed heavens
Life’s hard lessons my young soul did learn.
Teacher: Every country has its national symbols.
I think it will be interesting to know about them.
- I am visiting your country and I want to know more about it. I am from Great Britain and I don’t know what national symbols of Ukraine are.
- The national symbols of Ukraine are the national flag, the national emblem and the national anthem. They were adopted by the Verkhovna Rada in 1992.
- I heard that the Ukrainian flag consists of two horizontal stripes of equal width. The top is blue and the bottom is yellow. These are the colours of the sky, the mountains, the rivers and the golden fields of your beautiful country. Is it true?
- Yes, it is.
- What can you tell about national emblem?
- Similar to other European nations, the national emblems of Ukraine have changed during the millennium of Ukrainian history.
- I know that the contemporary national emblem of Ukraine is a trident. Tell me please about history of foundation of a trident.
- The first image of a trident appeared in the ninth century, Ihor, the Prince of Kyivan Rus sent ambassadors to sign a treaty with the Byzantine Emperor and they sealed the document with a trident.
- What does the trident mean?
- This emblem was a mark of authority and a mystic symbol of one or several of the ethnic groups which inhabited ancient Ukrainian territory and which came to compose the Ukrainian nation. Maybe do you know something about the Ukrainian trident?
- Yes, I do. It is thought that the trident represented the division of the world into three spheres: the earthly, the celestial and the spiritual – as well as the union of the three natural elements: air, water and earth. Tell me, please, when was the trident adopted?
- In 1918 the trident was adopted as the national symbol of independent Ukraine. Sovereign Ukraine adopted the trident as its emblem again in 1992.
- And what about National anthem of Ukraine? Say a few words about its history.
- The anthem of Ukraine “Shche ne vmerla Ukraina” is of quite recent origin. In 1863 the Lviv journal “Meta” published the poem of the scientist and poet Pavlo Chubynsky. In the same year it was set to music composer Mykhaylo Verbytsky.
- When was a song adopted?
- In 1917 the song was officially adopted as the anthem of the Ukrainian state. When Ukraine gained its sovereignty “Shche ne vmerla Ukraina” became the state anthem again.
- Thank you for interesting information.

- Yes, you are right. The lesson is over. Good bye.
Teacher: You’ve heard about geographical position of Ukraine from which we can make a conclusion that Ukraine is supposed to be economical developed country.
How is it in reality, will figure it out from the dialogue of this pair.
- Hello! I’m a representative of the European counsel. I want to value the economic position of Ukraine.
- Hello. I’m a minister of foreign trade. Nice to meet you. I’ll tell you about economy of Ukraine with pleasure. Ukraine has a developed economy with strong industry and agriculture.

Teacher: Development of economy has its consequences and they are not always good for nature.
We have the group who organized the publication of the newspaper devoted to the problems of environment protection of Ukraine. They are our guests. They will tell us about ecological situation:
Student 1: For many centuries the people who lived on our planet before us had been trying to make their life easier and more comfortable. They thought that resources of the Earth were endless. They used those resources without thinking about the generations that would come after them. Our ancestors chopped down the forest, killed animals that lived there and invented machines and instruments that polluted the water the air and soil. In the 20 century, the rapid growth of science and technology resulted in an increasing negative effect on the biosphere of the Earth. This leads to the reduction of the life-span of man.
Student 2: Sorry for my interruption. Let me introduce myself. My name is Mareya York. I’m representative of an international organization Greenpeace in Great Britain. We have similar problems connecting to environmental Greenpeace in Great Britain. Huge industrial enterprises pollute the air we breathe, the water we drink and the land, which gives as bread, vegetables and fruit. Their discharge of dust and gas into the atmosphere returns to the Earth in the form of acid rains. It also destroys the ozone layer of the Earth and causes ‘‘greenhouse effect’’. It effects forests rivers, crops and people’s health. People die younger, because of cancer, AIDS and other diseases which are directly connected with the polluted environment they live in. Many species of animal and birds face extinction die to the pollution of the biosphere. I have a question: What kind of situation with air pollution do you have in your country?
Student 3: We have such trouble problem. The worst situation with air pollution is in big overpopulated cities. I know from your newspapers, radio that in Mexico city, for example breathing is equivalent to smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. The big industrial cities in Ukraine like Zaporighya, Donetsk, Kharkiv and some others have the same situation.
Student 4: Thanks for your answer. The tragedy of Chernobyl was paid attention all the world. In April 1986 that nuclear power plant just north-west of Kiev suffered the worst nuclear accident in history. What other consequences of this tragedy? Tell me please about it.
Student 5: Dozen died immediately, tens of thousands were evacuated while the long-term effects to human life are difficult to calculate. A large part of Ukraine, Russia and Byelorussia was polluted by radioactive substances. Great damage was done to their economy, nature and people’s health. The problem of Chernobyl has not been solved yet because of the economic difficulties that Ukraine is having now. The power plant was closed on December 15, 2000.
Student 3: And what about work of Greenpeace in your country?
Student 4: From the very beginning I want to say a few words about such international environmental organization as Greenpeace. It wants to preserve earth natural resources and it’s many different types of plant and animal life. The organization campaigns against nuclear weapons testing, environmental pollution & harmful practices in fishing logging & industries.
Student 6: When & where Greenpeace started?
Student 4: Greenpeace was started in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in 1917, by members of a small group opposed to nuclear weapons testing by the United States military in Alaska.
Student 3: Why did they cold they are group Greenpeace?
Student 4 : The group renamed itself Greenpeace to show the biggest goal of creating a green & peaceful world.
Student 6: What are the main action of this organization?
Student 4: Greenpeace became know for it’s exciting exploits that attracted media attention to environmental issues. Greenpeace members in small rubber boats have disrupted whaling expeditions by putting themselves between the whales & hunters harpoons. They did something similar in Newfoundland to protest the killing of baby seals, whose soft white fur is used by clothing manufactures to make coats.
Student 3: What about numbers of your organization?
Student 4: Greenpeace has about 3 ml. paying members & more than 40 offices in 30 countries. Its international headquaters are in Amsterdam, Netherlands. My final question to you. In what way does your country solve the actual problem – the problem of environmental protection?
Student 5: Our country pays much attention to the question of nature conservation. Article 67 of our constitution reads: ‘‘Citizens of Ukraine are obliged to protect nature & conserve its riches’’. New laws and resolutions have aim to protect the atmosphere from pollution, protect the country’s natural resources & save plants, birds, animals from extinction.

- Let’s speak about the fact how sport is useful for people.
- Sport is one of the few things that makes people healthy and strong. The general belief is that a person who goes in for sports can’t be weak and ill.
- Thus, nobody likes to be clumsy and often ill, and all want to have nice bodies and strength such as sportsmen and athletes have.
