Выступление на ШМО по теме: «Работа с личностными тестами на уроках английского языка как прием повышения эффективности занятий»

Учитель: Чернякова Т.М.(II полугодие 2013-2014 уч. года)



Не секрет, что одной из задач, которые ставит преподаватель перед собой, является повышение мотивации у студентов и развитие интереса к тому, чем они занимаются, в особенности, если речь идет об изучении иностранного языка.

Эффективность занятий зачастую зависит от того, насколько разнообразны и привлекательны те формы, методы, приемы, которые применяются преподавателем в своей работе.

Всем известно, какой положительный результат приносит использование на уроках иностранного языка игр, конкурсов, викторин и т.д. Такие формы не часто удается применять в аудиторное время, поэтому гораздо большую ценность они имеют как элементы правильно организованного внеклассного занятия или факультатива. Свободное же время, оставшееся, к примеру, в конце аудиторного занятия, вполне можно провести рационально, эффективно и одновременно с этим увлекательно, если использовать в частности, работу с так называемыми личностными тестами (personality tests).

Такие тесты могут различаться как по форме, так и по содержанию, рассчитаны на студентов разного возраста с различным уровнем подготовки. Тесты помогают представить себя в определенной роли и скорректировать свое поведение в случае необходимости.

Подобные психологические тесты можно использовать на занятиях для диагностики личностных качеств, манеры поведения в различных ситуациях, а кроме этого, для тренировки речевых образцов, лексического и грамматического материала.

Формы работы с тестом абсолютно вариативны. Это зависит от многих факторов, например, возраста учащихся, уровня их владения языком, темы занятия, целей и задач, преследуемых преподавателем, вида речевой деятельности, который является приоритетным, навыков и умений, отрабатываемых в ходе урока и т.д.

Самое элементарное – ответить на вопросы теста и подвести итоги тестирования. Материал при этом подается либо устно (преподавателем, студентами), либо письменно (на индивидуальных карточках, на доске). Данная форма работы с тестом полезна при тренировке навыков аудирования, чтения (вслух, про себя), переводе, письма.

Подсчет баллов, последующая оценка результатов тестирования, вполне вероятно, вызовет чье-то согласие или несогласие, одобрение или неодобрение. В ходе дискуссии формируются и развиваются навыки устной речи (монологической, а чаще диалогической) с использованием коммуникативных формул и т.д.

Тесты вызывают у студентов большой интерес, они с энтузиазмом работают при этом с разными грамматическими конструкциями и лексикой, сами составляют подобные тесты, переводят уже готовые с русского языка на английский, и наоборот, вносят свои варианты ответов на вопросы, предлагают новые трактовки полученных результатов. Так как тесты, в основном, носят шутливый характер, то на уроках царит атмосфера веселья, доброжелательности.

Предлагаемые в Приложении тесты различаются по тематике, по форме и объему, и станут удачным дополнением эффективного занятия и ярким примером, того, как можно совместить приятное с полезным.

ПРИЛОЖЕНИЕ 1

Personality tests

1. A Love Test

Answer the questions (honestly!) and then read the explanations.

1. You are walking to your boy/girlfriend's house. There are two roads to get there. One is a straight path to take you there quickly, but is very boring. The other is much longer but is full of wonderful sights and interesting things. Which one do you take to get to your boy/girlfriend's house, short or long?

2. On the way you see two rose bushes. One is full of red roses, the other is full of white ones. You decide to pick 20 roses for your boy/girlfriend, of any colour combination. What number of white and red roses do you pick? (You can pick all of one or any combination of the two).

3. You finally get to their house. A family member answers the door. You can ask them to get your boy/girlfriend or you can go get him or her yourself. Which do you do?

4. You go up to you boy/girlfriend's room, but nobody is there. You decide to leave the roses. Do you leave them on the windowsill or on the bed?

5. Later, it's time for bed. You and your boy/girlfriend go to sleep in separate rooms. In the morning, when it's time to get up, you knock at your sweetheart's room. Is s/he awake or asleep?

6. Now it's time to go back home. Do you take the short, plain road or the longer, more interesting one?

Explanations

1. The road represents your attitude towards falling in love. If you take the short road, you fall in love quickly and easily. If you take the long road, you take your time and do not fall in love easily.

2. The number of red roses represents how much you give in a relationship, while the number of white represents what you expect in return. For example, if you chose 18 red and 2 white roses, you give 90% and expect 10% in return.

3. This question represents your attitude towards handling relationship problems. If you asked the family member to get you your sweetheart, then you like to avoid problems and hope that they will solve themselves. If you went to get him or her yourself, then you are a more direct person and like to work out problems immediately.

4. The placement of roses determines how much you like to see your boy/girlfriend. Placing them on the bed means you like to see them a lot, while placing them on the windowsill means that you are alright with not seeing them very often.

5. This is representative of your attitude towards their personality. If you find them asleep, you love your boy/girlfriend the way they are. If you find them awake, you expect them to change for you.

6. If you chose the short road, you fall out of love easily. If you chose the longer one, you usually stay in love for a long time.

2. How courageous are you.

Do this quiz and find out. What would you do if.

a) I would tell my parents and go back to bed.
b) I would hide under the bed.

You were on a desert island?

a) If I could swim, I'd escape.
b) If I couldn't swim, I'd build a boat.
c) If I didn't have a friend, I would be frightened. I would explore the island.

a) I wouldn't believe my eyes — I don't believe in ghosts.
b) I would faint.
c) I would speak to it nicely — it might be shy or lonely.

a) I would keep calm and phone the newspapers.
b) If I were alone, I'd panic. I would be terrified.

a) I would remove it carefully — it might be poisonous.

It won't do you any good to quarrel with your parents, you will have to make up in the end." As soon as you take into consideration that your parents have feelings, wishes and needs, they will recognize you as their equal.

15-24 points
Sometimes misunderstanding, irritation and despair darken the, relationships with your parents. There are no ideal families you know but practically all people try to improve their relations with family members' by seeking different ways. It's worth discussing and solving problems together.

Under 15 points

11. Your jeans and your personality

Believe it or not, your jeans can indicate some of your personality traits!

Pick your favourite style of jeans and read the analysis.

Baggy jeans
• Tight jeans
• Faded and worn-out jeans
• Decorated jeans
• Designer jeans
• Standard jeans
• All styles of jeans

Baggy jeans
People who wear baggy or oversized jeans are often shy and indecisive. They lack self-confidence and tend to worry about their appearance.

Tight jeans
People who wear tight jeans are self-confident and like to be the centre of attention. They know how to attract attention from the opposite sex.

Faded and worn-out jeans
People who like old worn-out jeans are usually independent and sincere. They aren't interested in money or status symbols.

Decorated jeans
Those who like jeans that are decorated with patches, ornaments, etc want to show that they are unique and creative. They love thinking up new ideas and like change.

Designer jeans
Those who wear designer jeans, particularly from a well known designer, and love to show off that label to the world aren't really satisfied with what they currently are, and are looking for that extra recognition from people around them.

Standard jeans
Those who like to wear standard blue jeans (not tight, baggy, decorated, etc) are content with their current status and lifestyle. They normally wear jeans only when it's appropriate to do so. Sounds like a real gentleman or lady, doesn't it?

All styles of jeans
Some people do collect all types of jeans as listed above. This definitely shows that they also have a collection of personalities as well! One thing is for sure, these people are very adaptable, changing with the times, and probably get bored very quickly.

18-25: You know how to stand your ground and speak your mind without making people angry. Your friends will respect you for this, and in the long run you may help people avoid making serious mistakes.

Above 25: You stand your ground and speak your mind — but be careful. You may run into trouble if you are too aggressive. There may be a better way of getting your point cross. Think before you speak!

Majority of A answers.
For you watching TV is a way of escaping from reality. TV keeps you company and doesn't ask for much in return. Be careful not to isolate yourself from others or give up more interesting things. Sometimes it's good to escape from reality, but it's important that you shouldn't do it too often.

Majority of В answers.
Television isn't very important for you. It's no problem to give it up if there's something more interesting to do. But if you have to stay at home you watch whatever's on that night. So, be careful not to be too superficial in your choices!

Majority of С answers.
You've got an active relationship with TV. You have a good critical sense and know how to choose programmes. Be careful not to give TV too much importance and don't let it influence your language and way of life too much. Sometimes it's better to read a book.

Here are some types of television viewers.

The absent-minded
This type of viewer leaves the TV on all day. In the meantime, he eats, phones, reads or does his homework. For him television is really just background noise for his day.

The addict
He won't give up TV for anything in the world. He watches the programmes in silence, with great concentration. Even during commercials, he won't leave the screen for fear of losing a second of the programme. He usually chooses the programmes he wants to watch very carefully.

The bored
He puts the TV on when he's got nothing better to do. For him TV is the last resort. He only watches it when it's raining or when he's ill.

14. Tell me what you eat...

What do your tastes in food and drink reveal about your character? Read about Charlie Chilli, Suzie Sweet-Tooth, Hungry Harry and Picky Polly and see which one you identify with! The character analysis is at the bottom.

Charlie Chilli: “I love eating hot, ' spicy food. I enjoy trying foreign specialities in restaurants, and I'm also fond of preparing exotic dishes in my own kitchen. I hate eating the same thing two days running — I would rather go hungry!”

Suzie Sweet-Tooth: I don't mind what I, eat, as long as there is some chocolate on the menu. I adore desserts: I have so many favourites I often find it difficult to choose! I like milk shakes and fizzy drinks better than tea or coffee”.

Hungry Harry: “I'm more interested in quantity than quality. I can't stand getting up from the table if I still have room in my stomach. I prefer rice or potatoes and cooked vegetables to salads, and would rather drink Coke than fruit juice.”

Picky Polly: “I'm not keen on dishes which don't look beautiful. In fact, I haven't got a large appetite. There are all sorts of things I refuse to eat at all, and even when I'm given one of my favourites I always leave half of it on the plate”.

Character Analysis

Chilli eaters are brave and adventurous; they like to shock, but they get bored and restless very easily.

Sweet-eaters are easy-going and sociable but they lack confidence. They are kind and sympathetic but not always reliable.

Hungry eaters are hard-working and generous; they aren't ambitious and hate changes of any sort. They worry about the future.

Picky eaters are artistic and sensitive but they lose their tempers easily. They set themselves very high standards and don't like to fail.

17. Your fave cookies and you

David Stevenson, an American psychologist, has discovered that the way we eat cookies can reveal our personalities.

Choose which method best describes the way you eat your favourite cookies and find out what it means.

1) The whole thing all at once.
2) One bite at a time.
3) Slow and methodical nibbles examining the results of each bite afterwards.
 
4) In little feverous nibbles.
5) Dunked in some liquid (milk, coffee...).
6) I don't have a favourite way because I don't like cookies.

Your personality:

l. The whole thing.
This means you enjoy life to the full and you are fun to be with. You are carefree and sometimes even reckless. You are totally irresponsible. No one should trust you with their children.

2. One bite at a time.
You are lucky to be one of the 5.4 billion other people who eat their cookies this very same way. Just like them, you lack imagination, but that's okay, not to worry, you're normal.

3. Stow and methodical.
You follow the rules. You're very tidy and orderly. Your homework is always perfect. You're so meticulous that it can drive other people up the wall.

4. Feverous nibbles.
Your teachers (bosses) like you because you get your work done quickly. You always have a million things to do and never enough time to do them. Your moods change very quickly: one minute you're happy, the next minute you feel sad.

5. Dunked.
Every one likes you because you are always upbeat. You avoid unpleasant situations and like to say pleasant things to the people around you.

6. I don't have a favourite way, I don't like cookies.
You probably come from a rich family, and like to wear nice things, and go to upscale restaurants. You are particular about the things you buy, own, and wear. Things have to be just right. You like to be pampered. There's no pleasing you.

Краткое описание документа:

Не секрет, что одной из задач, которые ставит преподаватель перед собой, является повышение мотивации у студентов и развитие интереса к тому, чем они занимаются, в особенности, если речь идет об изучении иностранного языка.

Эффективность занятий зачастую зависит от того, насколько разнообразны и привлекательны те формы, методы, приемы, которые применяются преподавателем в своей работе.

 

Всем известно, какой положительный результат приносит использование на уроках иностранного языка игр, конкурсов, викторин и т.д. Такие формы не часто удается применять в аудиторное время, поэтому гораздо большую ценность они имеют как элементы правильно организованного внеклассного занятия или факультатива. Свободное же время, оставшееся, к примеру, в конце аудиторного занятия, вполне можно провести рационально, эффективно и одновременно с этим увлекательно, если использовать в частности, работу с так называемыми личностными тестами (personality tests).
