T: Take your places. How are you?
Ch: Very well. Thank you.
I am OK. Thank you.
T: I am happy to hear that. Let's start our lesson. Today we'll speak about teens, subcultures, youth organizations.
Organization moment: (3 min)
Checking up the home task:
II. Основная часть.
1) Brain storm. (3 min)
Teacher: We shall begin our work with a brain storm. Think over and say what your associations with the topic "Subculture" are. Will you go to the blackboard, and write down all our suggestions.
Subculture: image, music, emo, goth, clothes, values, punks, hippie...
2) Speaking. (5 min)
T: I think it will be the plan of our lesson. N..., could you tell me what subculture is?
P 1: A subculture is a group with a distinct style and identity. Different subcultures have their own beliefs, value systems, fashion, and favourite music.
T: Ok! You are right. Go to your place. Now I invite you to discuss all these points in details. Look at the second slide and try to find out 13 names of different subcultures and organizations.
Slides 2 - 14
P 2: Goth wear the blackers black, with a lot of silvery jewellery and have very black hair and look as thin and pale as possible. They read Bram Stocker and talk about being vampires, and about the end of the world.
P 3: Punks are young people who dress in a shocking way to express their identity. They have brightly coloured hair and wear metal chains. They are thought to rebel against the society or the older generation. Their music is aggressive. They reject everything.
P 4: Members of one of the leading (in number) youth organizations in Britain. Scouts are trained to use their initiative, learn to use practical skills. Their moral values are loyalty and responsibility.
P 5: They are the 'wizards' of the computer community; people with a deep understanding of how their computers work, and can do things with them that seem 'magical' to express themselves. Hackers do not protest against their parents.
P 6: Emo occurs from the English word "emotion" and it is translated as emotional. To be Emo is to be themselves and not shy of its actions, emotions and desires.
P 7: A young person who wears a leather jacket, army boots just to show off is a rocker. He is associated with something rebellious.
P 8: These are the folks who use computer-made, synthesized music, and drugs to create massive all-night dance parties. Ravers like to be in a collective. They want to try out all sorts of options and are thought to be violent and rebellious.
P 9: Bikers are persons who ride 2 or sometimes 3 wheeled motorised vehicles and who identify themselves with a special subculture. They usually wear leather jackets and army boots.
P 10: People who in their club get practical experience in agriculture, home crafts and country life are young farmers.
P 11: Some classify these people like drug users and rock and roll fans, since their behaviour and attitudes differ from social norms. Hippies don't conform to society's standards and support a liberal attitude and lifestyle. They accept other people as they are. They always want to change the world for the best.
P 12: Environmentalists are concerned about nature and want to improve or protect our Earth. Usually they join Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth. They prefer non-violent direct actions to solve ecological problems. Earnest Gekkel is the first ecologist in the world. It is he, who in 1866 used the word "ecology" thus calling a science about life of animals and their relation to the environment.
P 13: Volunteers do voluntary work in the community, help needy people, children and animals.
T: Probably you have noticed that many subcultures pay great attention to their image. A tattoo is one of the distinct signs. Can you say anything about this point?
P 14: I want to say some words about tattoos and body piercing. Teenagers do it to show off, to drаw people's attention and to display their individuality. We can see them in many subcultures: bikers, skinheads, rockers, goth.
Slides 16 - 19
P 15: Besides the unusual teenagers' images the possible presence of subculture in the streets can be detected by graffiti. "Graffiti is an Italian word. It was originally used by archeologists. Nowadays, graffiti refers to writing or pictures rude, humorous, political or sexual in content, drawn with spray paint or felt-tip pens on walls in public places, such as buildings, parks, trains, buses, toilets etc. Graffiti is also found in rural areas, often on bridges and rocks along a highway. It is a form of self-expression"... [1, c. 30] Within the programmes of some youth festivals graffiti festivals are held. Though graffiti exists in our towns, cities people still argue if it is an art or acts of vandalism.
T: Oh, it's a very interesting theme for discussion. I think it deserves special time. We can do it somehow. Thank you for the information. It's high time for us to continue our work.
3) Reading. (10 min)
T: The representatives of different subcultures prefer different music. Let's read the text about the history of musical styles. The first task is matching. You have texts for reading and answer sheets on your desks. Have a look at them. If you have questions ask them.
T: Your time is up. Let's check your work. On the twenties slide you can see the right variants.
Now you can put marks. Who has got 5? 4? 3? Well done.
Презентация "Music". (5 min)
Slides 1 - 7
P 16: According to the information from the Internet sites I could say. Hippie prefer rock-n -roll. Their favourite singers were Sonny and Sherr, The Beatles and many others. In the 70-s heavy metal style appeared. It was the music listened by rockers. Heavy metal groups are Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. The 80-s is the time of punks. Punk rock became well-known after the coming of the group Sex Pistols and the Clash. Their music was loud, angry, and rebellious. Modern teenagers listen to techno, rap.
T: Music festivals became common nowadays. What do you know about their beginning?
Slides 8 - 9
P 16: Woodstock festival became the greatest event in the youth culture. The first Rock Music Festival took place in Bethel (New York) in August 1969. Famous rock groups such as The Band, Country Joe, the Who performed there. Nowadays rock festivals are held in Russia. To my mind, Nashetvie in Tver' and Tornado in Miass are the most well-known.
T: We have discussed a lot today. But we don't your parents' opinions upon this point. K... will share information with you.
<Приложение 1. Презентация. "Teens. Subculture. Organizations.">
Slide 25 - 26
P 18: Before the lesson I was given the task to interview parents and classmates. I asked them questions about their attitude to different subcultures. Twenty per cent of mothers don't want their children to join youth groups. Fathers are much more categorical. As for classmates the results you can see on the next slide.
6) Dialogue. (7 min)
Slide 27 - 28 [7, c.33 - 34]
T: Now I want you to work in pairs and discuss these situations. How would you react? Use phrases "(un)willing to do something" and "giving reasons".
7) Work with cards (10 min)
III Reflexion (1 min)
T: Thank you for your cinquains. Our lesson is practically over. In your diaries you will put marks that you have got for listening and reading. Don't forget to put down your home task. Leaving our classroom I want you to put the "smiles" on the blackboard. They will show your impressions about our lesson. Here is the bell. I think that is all for today. Our lesson is over. Good bye. See you on Monday. Thank you for the work.
