Your task is to listen to me attentively, be ready to answer my questions and retell the story like a snowball.
Hooked on the Net
The latest addition to trap thousands of people is the Internet, which has been blamed for broken relationship, job losses, financial ruin and even suicide. Psychologists now recognize Internet Addiction Syndrome( IAS) as a new illness that could cause serious problems and ruin many lives. IAS is similar to other problems like gambling, smoking, drinking: addicts have dreams about the Internet; they need to use it first thing in the morning, they lie to their parents and partners about how much time they spend online; they wish they could cut down, but are unable to do so. Many users spend up to 40 hours a week on the Internet, Some addicts are teenagers who are already hooked on computer games and who find it very difficult to resist games on the Internet

VI Физкультминутка. Зарядка для глаз.
VII Активизация навыков устной речи по теме в режиме T-P1-P2-P3-P4….
Let’s continue our conversation about the Internet in the form of discussion. Don’t be passive, be active, argue with me, express your own points of view.
Teacher: So people can find out a lot of useful information and communicate about themselves on the internet. But I want to know why people want to be” on the Internet?
P1: Let me think. It seems to me that people like to do it because they feel free on the Internet.
Teacher: Explain me, please I don’t understand you what this freedom includes?
P1: OK. Firstly, it is equality. It does not matter what your race, age, nationality, wealth is. You cfn post your message on the Internet and you will be heard.
P2: I fully agree and I can add. You will find a lot of people who will support you and others who will not support you. You will find your allies and enemies.
Teacher: OK. In my opinion it is the freedom to express your opinion. Do you agree? But what can you tell us about the freedom of choice.
P3: On the Internet you can choose information according to your own tastes or needs. I am sure that nobody can make you look at something that you don’t need or don’t like. If you don’t like something, you just type another address and in a second you are already where you want to be.
Teacher: I wonder what you can choose from these different resources? As far as I know it may be pornography or silly games.
P4: Sure it can, but it seems to me that very few people view pornography on the net. So these people will not influence all the rest of the inhabitants. What can I TELL ABOUT THE GAMES? There are tons of very useful games which will help you to understand the economy of a city, improve your language skills and vocabulary or at least give you better skills in using the” mouse”.
Teacher: It’s just for me, better skills in using the “ mouse”. I see, there is also a freedom of movement.
P5: Certainly. As you know there are no borders on the Internet, and you can travel all over the Internet without any prohibitions. If you need some information about some foreign country you will get it. You don’t need any visas to explore web sites in foreign countries.
Teacher: OK, I see. But I am sure we can’t vote on the Internet
P6: Just on the contrary. I can’t agree with you because you can vote on the Internet. There are a lot of questionnaires where you can express your opinion towards something.
Teacher: I see that the main principles of democracy are kept on the Internet. So the Internet is super, perfect and there are no problems concerning the Internet.
P7: Unfortunately, there are some problems concerning the Internet. I think that it is not good that internet users communicate only with other people on the Internet. They stop talking with their relatives and friends, because they have only virtual friends. So the Internet destroys real human communication.
P8: I want to object. May be some interpersonal communications have been destroyed, but now technology gives us an opportunity to communicate with our distant relatives and friends as if we were in the same room. People can be close to each other even living on different continents.
P9: You are not right .I consider that if a person is mentally normal he or she will never prefer communication with relatives to the computer.
Teacher: So I’d like to say that the Internet will help us to develop our educational level through its democracy and freedom. Now sum it up. After people find out what freedom is they…
P10: They to my mind develop this spirit in their own country. After the Internet guides us to the one open society, there will be no borders on Earth any more. We will live in peace and will respect each other like on the Internet.
P11: They I am sure will be tolerant to each other, because without this tolerance and love we won’t have a peaceful world in the future. Warmth of hearts and ability to sacrifice is something that requires real tolerance and love.
P12: On the internet we communicate with people of different races and religious of course. In my opinion the Muslim as well as the Christian first of all speak of love and mercy and has nothing in common with terrorism. They have been existing side by side without any conflicts for many centuries .It’s time for the human race to stop fighting and hating each other. Generally speaking everyone should adhere to Alexander Severov’s words:” Do not do onto others what you would not have them do on to you”.
VIII Проверка домашнего задания.
Teacher: Your homework for today’s lesson was to make up or find out in the newspapers and magazines interesting stories about the influence of the Internet on the teens’ lives And what is more important to make rules how not to have this happen to you, the warnings for children and their parents.
Text 1: Georgie was 13 years old when she fell in love with someone she “ met” on the Internet. He said that he was 15 and his name was Johnny. “ We talked about everything- pop groups, TV programmes, boy-girl stuff. That’s how it started”, Georgie remembers. They exchanged photographs: he sent her a photograph that showed the top part of his head, and a little bit of his eyes. He told her it was like that because he had a problem with his computer. They ended up talking on the phone and very soon he asked her out on a date. Luckily, Georgie’s mother insisted on going with her, she hid behind a big poster and watched what happened. Young Johnny turned out to be a 47- year old man. “ When I saw him, I didn’t know what to think, because I was shocked”, Georgie says.” I thought it was may be his dad. I was scared as well. Then my mum came over and spoke to him. She told him to go”. It took Gtorgie a few weeks to get over the shock. It was her first love, and no first love should be like this.
Text 2: 14 year old Linda from California wasn’t so lucky. Her online friend, who claimed to be 16, turned out to be a bald 49 year old man with a criminal record. He lured her to his flat and kept her there for a week.” It was hell”, Linda says. The man was arrested and jailed, but Linda’s saga didn’t end there. In the following years, she learned who her friends really were and fought her way back from severe depression and bouts of shame and guilt.” Now, looking back, I can see that there were some warning signs that there might be some sort of problem. But I ignored them”, she admits. She hardly goes to chat rooms at all now:” There’s one friend I talk to online, but mostly I just use e-mails. And I wouldn’t arrange to meet anybody, ever. You don’t have to go on the Internet to meet people”.
Most chat users are normal, friendly people, but they are still strangers. People can pretend and they do pretend. Sometimes a grown up might pretend to be a kid. So always remember Stranger Danger and be careful.
Take everything said in chat rooms lightly. After all you never know if what is being said is the truth or not.
Many people mistakenly think that they are completely anonymous while they are surfing the Net. They don’t realize just how easy it is to link someone’s address or online identity with a real person in the real world. So don’t give out your surname, phone number, home address or school, college, university and any other personal information that can be used to track you down.
If you are asked for a screen name or need to use a name to play a game, use a nickname, never use your real name.
Passwords are secret and should stay that way. Never tell anyone what it is. Try not use names of family or pets as they are easy to guess. A mix of numbers and letters is best.
Beware of people who change their details many times. If they can’t make up their minds who they are, how can they be trusted.
Meeting people you have chatted to over the Internet is extremely risky. Even when the date is arranged in a public place or with friends accompanying, it can still be dangerous.
