Программа экспериментальной работы по теме «Обучение аудированию как одному из видов коммуникативного умения».



Автор-исполнитель: Душинова Алла Атнасыновна.


База исследования: Т М Г им. Б.Б. Городовикова. 7б класс.


Руководитель эксперимента: Бураева Татьяна Викторовна.


Краткое обоснование актуальности темы:


Реализация основной цели обучения иностранным языкам, развития способности школьника к общению, основана и связана с формированием у учащихся коммуникативных умений. На первом этапе происходит формирование первичных навыков и умений иноязычного общения, составляющих основу коммуникативной компетенции в устной речи (говорение, аудирование). Поэтому и содержание обучения аудированию на этом этапе должно быть информативным, обладающим образовательной ценностью, аутентичностью и доступностью. Важно чтобы отобранный материал пробуждал у школьников познавательную активность, стимулировал их общение на изучаемом языке.


Объект исследования – учебно-воспитательный процесс, организация этого процесса, совершенствование методики.


Предмет исследования -- содержание, формы, методы.


Цель исследования: совершенствование механизма аудирования и

разработка методических приемов работы с текстами по аудированию.


Задачи: 1. Разработать основные принципы.

2. Определить критерии отбора тем (интерес, возрастные особенности в рамках государственной программы, доступность, аутентичность, образовательная ценность, информативность).

3. Разработать задания к текстам по аудированию требующие как вербального, так и невербального реагирования.

Гипотеза – Если я составлю сборник текстов для аудирования с учетом индивидуальных и возрастных особенностей учеников и сопровожу их подборкой разноуровневых заданий, дифференцированных по уровню подготовки учащихся, я предполагаю, что такой сборник заинтересует учеников, даст огромный познавательный эффект. В конечном итоге

облегчит выполнение основной задачи, общения на иностранном языке.


Этапы эксперимента:


I. Проектирование с 1998-1999 г.

1). Анкетирование учащихся. Анализ анкет.

2). Изучение методической литературы.

3). Отбор текстов по аудированию.

4). Разработка разноуровневых заданий к текстам.

5). Апробирование данного подбора текстов на факультативных занятиях.

II. Применение проанализированных и апробированных текстов.

III. Обобщение результатов экспериментальной работы.


В результате - составление методического пособия с текстами для аудирования, рекомендациями к применению.

РЕЦЕНЗИЯ

на учебное пособие «Аудирование как средство повышения мотивации учащихся в обучении иностранному языку» учителя иностранного языка ТМГ им. Б.Б. Городовикова Душиновой Аллы Атнасыновны.


Так как коммуникативный метод является ведущим при обучении иностранным языкам, обучение учащихся навыкам аудирования, пожалуй, одна из самых актуальных задач, стоящих сейчас перед учителем иностранного языка. Ведь без понимания речи на слух не состоится общение, даже если у учащегося блестящие навыки говорения. Как учитель практик с большим стажем работы в школе скажу, что мы, учителя иностранного языка, на мой взгляд, не уделяем должного внимания обучению аудированию, занимаясь этим от случая к случаю. Да и учебных пособий по аудированию практически нет. Учителю приходится искать тексты в различных журналах, газетах, учебниках.

И в этой связи Алла Атнасыновна занялась очень нужным, на мой взгляд, делом. Она отобрала очень интересные, фабульные тексты для аудирования, составила к ним задания. При чем задания выстроены методически правильно, последовательно: от предтекстовых настраивающих учащихся на аудирование самого текста к после текстовым, в которых идет не только контроль аудирования,но и закрепляется грамматика, лексика. И наконец, учитель выходит на творческие задания к тексту.

Такое учебное пособие – настоящий подарок любому учителю.

Своей работой Алла Атнасыновна облегчила труд учителя в организации обучения аудированию. В это же самое время и учащиеся будут с нетерпением ждать этот вид работы на уроке, так как они любят занимательные истории и с удовольствием будут выполнять не менее интересные упражнения. И в конце концов система в обучении аудированию позволит добиться более высоких результатов,чем аудирование от случая к случаю.

Хочется пожелать Алле Атнасыновне не останавливаться на достигнутом, а продолжить работу над таким полезным и нужным в работе каждого учителя учебным пособием.

По-моему, работа Аллы Атнасыновны заслуживает всяческого поощрения и может быть допущена к утверждению на учебно – методическом совете.


РУКОВОДИТЕЛЬ РМО УЧИТЕЛЕЙ ИНОСТРАННОГО ЯЗЫКА /ВЕЛИКОРОДНАЯ. Л. А./





Краткое обоснование актуальности данной темы.


Аудирование составляет основу общения, с него начинается

овладение устной коммуникацией. Оно складывается из умения дифференцировать воспринимаемые звуки, интегрировать их в смысловые комплексы, удерживать их в памяти во время слушания, осуществлять вероятностное прогнозирование и, исходя из ситуации общения, понимать звуковую цепь. При этом процесс восприятия проходит в определенном нормальном темпе, свойственном для данного языка.

Некоторые авторы выделяют два вида аудирования: аудирование с полным пониманием и аудирование основного содержания услышанного.


Понимание речи на слух тесно связано с говорением- выражением мыслей средствами изучаемого языка. говорением и аудирование- две заимствованные стороны устной речи. фразы слушания и говорения в общении перемежаются.Аудирование не только прием сообщения, но иподготовка во внутренней речи ответной реакции на услышанное. “… Для того чтобы научиться понимать речь, необходимо говорить, и потому, как будет принята ваша речь, судить о своем понимании. Понимание формируется в процессе говорения, а говорение - в процессе понимания”. Действительно, чтобы сказать, надо услышать, “… говорение и слушание… объединены общностью способов формирования и формулирования мысли посредством языка”. Таким образом, аудирование подготавливает говорение, говорение помогает формированию восприятия речи на слух.

Аудирование связано и с чтением. Их объединяет принадлежность к рецептивным видам речевой деятельности, когда происходит восприятие - понимание - активная переработка информации, получаемых из речевых сообщений – при аудировании через слуховой канал, при чтении – через зрительный. Чтение представляет собой перевод графического языка в звуковой. Читая – вслух или про себя, - человек как бы слышит воспринимаемый текст.

Самым тесным образом связано аудирование и с письмом. В процессе графического оформления человек проговаривает и слышит то, что пишет.

Таким образом, будучи тесно связано с другими видами речевой деятельности, аудирование играет важную роль в изучении иностранного языка и особенно при коммуникативно - направленном обучении. В современной методике обучения иностранным языкам и в нашей стране, и в других странах подчеркивается необходимость формирования аудирования, как очень важного умения, без овладения которым немыслимо общение на языке.

Овладение аудированием дает возможность реализовать воспитательные, образовательные и развивающие цели. Оно позволяет учить учащихся внимательно вслушиваться в звучащую речь, формировать умение предвосхищать смысловое содержание высказывания и таким образом воспитывать культуру слушания не только на иностранном, но и на родном языке. Воспитательное значение формирования понимать речь на слух, оказывающее в то же время и развивающее воздействие на ребенка, заключается в том, что положительно сказывается на развитии памяти ребенка, и прежде всего слуховой памяти, столь важной, не только для изучения иностранного языка, но и любого другого предмета.

Аудирование вносит свой вклад и в достижении образовательной цели, обеспечивая детям, возможность понимать высказывания, как бы элементарны они ни были, на языке другого народа, в данном случае на английском языке, одном из самых распространенных языков мира.

Аудирование служит и мощным средством обучения иностранному языку. Оно дает возможность овладевать звуковой стороной изучаемого языка, его фонемным составом и интонацией: ритмом, ударением, мелодикой. Через аудирование идет усвоение лексического состава языка, его грамматической структуры. В то же самое время аудирование облегчает овладение говорением, чтением и письмом.

Я работаю руководителем ШМО учителей иностранного языка четвертый год. В мою компетенцию входит проведение входных, промежуточных и итоговых контрольных работ Проводя анализ итогов этих срезов я была озадачена низким процентом качества знаний учащихся по аудированию. Это и обусловило выбор темы моей экспериментальной работы, цель которой составить учебное пособие, содержащее в себе сборник аутентичных текстов с системой разноуровневых упражнений коммуникативного характер.

















Идея, положенная в основу разработки.


В основу моей разработки положены принцип гуманизации и личностного ориентирования в обучении учащихся, при которых, прежде всего, учитываются возрастные особенности, психофизическое развитие, интересы, желания и потребности учащихся. Мне необходимо было создать благоприятные условия для комфортного, увлекательного, занимательного и познавательного процесса обучения аудированию. Для успешной реализации этой цели мне пришлось пересмотреть следующее:

1. подбор материала и его организацию,

2. определение организационной формы, в которой

предъявляется материал (всему классу; индивидуально;

группе учеников),

3. подготовку учащихся к аудированию (нужны опоры или

нужны, если нужны – какие),

4. организацию контроля.

Для выявления интересов и потребностей, учащихся мною было проведено анкетирование.



Систематизация работы.

Анализ УМК по английскому языку, анкет, учащихся выявил недостаток текстов, а также заданий к текстам по аудированию.

На основе этого анализа мною были разработаны критерии отбора текстов для обучения аудированию в 6-8 классах:

1. соответствие с возрастными особенностями.

2. доступность.

3. аутентичность.

4. познавательный характер.

5. информативность.

А также система упражнений для работы с аудиотекстом, включающая следующие этапы:

1. предтекстовые, направленные на снятие языковых

трудностей (фонетических, лексических).

2. послетекстовые, направленные на закрепление

грамматики, развитие навыков устной речи,

активизацию лексического материала, творческие и

продуктивные.

A TRUE STORY



In the autumn of 1935, when I was a young man, I was traveling in the North-West of India. One evening, after hunting in the forest all day, I was returning to my tent. It was getting dark, and I was walking along a narrow path. Suddenly I saw two green eyes looking at me from among the trees. A man-eating tiger was ready to jump on me. What could I do? Could I jump into the river? I looked to the left. In the river there was a big crocodile waiting for me with his mouth open. I was so afraid that I closed my eyes. The tiger jumped. I heard it. “What has happened?” I thought. I opened my eyes. What do you think I saw? The tiger had jumped over me and was now in the crocodile’s mouth. That is a true story, believe it or not!

THE DAYS OF THE WEEK

You know the names of the days of the week: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. But do you know where these names come from? If you look at the word Sunday, you may guess that it come from Sun-day, the day of the Sun. The name of the second day, Monday, comes from the word Moon; so Monday is the day of the Moon. The names of the other days of the week are connected with the names of different gods and planets. For example, the word Thursday comes from the name of the god Thor. Thor was the German god of thunder. The word Friday comes from the name of the old German goddess Frig who was the goddess of beauty.

The last day of the week is Saturday. The first part of this word, Saturn, is Latin. It is the name of the god and the planet. The second part of the word is English. Therefore, Saturday is the day of Saturn.

ANIMALS AND OURSELVES

Have you ever thought of yourself as a part of the animal kingdom? If you remember what you have learnt and read, this is what we are, very highly developed animals who can talk and speak.

In one of his “Just-So Stories” Rudyard Kipling described ways that he imagined in which Stone Age man taught animals to work for him.

Kipling was quite right – from the very earliest times animals have worked for men. Oxen, for example, could do as much work in one day as a farmer could do in a week.

Horses were of course the most common means of transport until the beginning of this century. The camel is called “ the ship of the desert” because for centuries it carried people across deserts. You have probably seen pictures

of elephants carrying heavy things from place to place. Dogs were probably man’s first friends.

Yet man has been very cruel in the way he used animals. There are many animals which we know today only from pictures, others are now dying out.

The time has come to protect “our lesser brothers”. If we do not act soon, new generations may know some animals only from a picture in a book.

A FORGETFUL TOURIST

Once a tourist arrived to London. When he got off the train, he asked the porter to show him the way to the nearest post-office. He sent a telegram to his wife, informing her that he had arrived safely and giving her the address of the hotel he intended to stay.

Then he went to the hotel, left the luggage there and went for a walk. As it was his first visit to the English capital, he was very much interested to see the museums and the sights of this beautiful city.

He strolled about a bit, had dinner at a small restaurant and looked at the shops. When he felt tired and wanted to turn his steps back to the hotel, he suddenly realized that he didn’t remember its name or even what street it was in.

MY FAVOURITE FILM

My favourite film of all times is Jurassic Park. I have seen it six times! It is a science fiction and adventure movie. It first appeared in 1993. The director was Steven Spielberg. The film is just over two hours long.

In the film, a scientist has found some dinosaur DNA. He has used his discovery to re-create dinosaurs, for example, tyrannosaurus rex, Apatosaurus and the dangerous velociraptor. The animals are all on an island, in a special theme park. However, everything goes wrong. The animals escape, and attack and kill people.

I like the film because the story is exciting and interesting. The acting is good, but the real stars are the dinosaurs. The special effects are amazing. Nevertheless, I did not like some of the violence in the film.

The theme of the film is important. It shows that it is wrong and dangerous to interfere with nature.

MISS EVANS

On a beautiful afternoon, in a year now long gone, a big ship set out on its first voyage from England to America. It was a new ship called “Titanic”.

For two days, the “Titanic” went on its way over the sea. Then it entered an ice field and was hit by an iceberg.

Everyone was told to come out of their rooms. Men were putting the life-boats over the sides of the ship, down into the water. Then all the men helped the women and the children to get into the life-boats.

There was not very much time left. The iceberg was on one side of the ship. It was like a high white wall.

A woman came to the side of the ship. Her two children were in one of the life-boats, and she was very much afraid.

My children are in the life-boat. I must go with them!” the woman called to the people in the life-boat.

There’s no more room”, someone called out. “If we take one more, the life-boat will sink”.

There was a young woman in the life-boat called Miss Evans. When she heard the woman calling, she stood up in the life-boat and touched one of the men on the arm.

Let me get back on the ship”, she said. “Let that woman take my place. I have no children”.

The ship is sinking”, said the man. “ You know that?”

Yes”, said Miss Evans. “ I know that”.

THREE MEN IN NEW YORK

Three men came to New York for a holiday. They came to a very large hotel and took a room there. Their room was on the forty-fifth floor. In the evening the three men went to the theater and came back to the hotel very late.

I’m very sorry”, said the clerk at the hotel, “but our lifts do not work tonight. If you do not want to walk up to your room, we shall make beds for you in the hall”.

No, no”, said one of the three men. “No, thank you. We do not want to sleep in the hall. We shall walk up to our room”.

Then he turned to his two friends and said: “It is not easy to walk up to the forty-fifth floor, but I think I know how to make it easier. On our way to the room I shall tell you some jokes; then you, Andy, will sing us some interesting songs; then you, Peter, will tell us some interesting stories”.

So they began to walk up to their room. Tom told them many jokes; Andy sang some songs. At last they came to the thirty-fourth floor. They were tired and decided to have a rest.

Well, said Tom,” now it’s your turn, Peter. After all jokes we heard on our way here tell us a long and interesting story with a sad ending”.

I shall tell you a sad story you asked me for”, said Peter. “It is not long, but it is sad enough. We left the key of our room in the hall”.

EVERY DAY

Every day in one of the streets of Vienna you could see a blind man playing the violin. His dog sat near him with a cap in his mouth. People, who were passing them, dropped coins into the cap.

One day when the weather was very cold, the man was playing for a long time, but nobody wanted to give him anything. The poor man thought that he would go to bed without supper. He was so tired and so weak that he stopped playing.

At that moment a young man came up to him and asked why he had stopped playing. The blind man said he had played for two hours but nobody had given him anything. “Give me your violin. I shall help you”, said the man. And with these words he began to play. He played so well that people began to gather and soon there was a big crowd. Everybody was eager to listen to the fine music and thank the young man for the pleasure.

Soon the cap was full of money.

I don’t know how to thank you”, said the blind man.

NEWTON’S DINNER

Sir Isaac Newton was so often deeply interested in difficult problems that he became quite absent-minded. One day a gentleman came to see him, but was told that Isaac was busy in his study and nobody was allowed to disturb him. As it was dinner-time, the visitor sat down in the dining-room to wait for the scientist. The servant came in and placed on the table a boiled chicken under a cover.

An hour passed, but Newton didn’t appear. The gentleman, feeling hungry, ate the chicken, and covering up the skeleton, asked the servant to prepare another one for his master.

Before the second chicken was ready, however, the scientist entered the room, apologizing for his delay. Then he added: “As I feel rather tired and hungry, I hope you will excuse me a little longer, while I take my dinner, and then I will be at your service”. With these words he lifted the cover, and without emotion turned round to the gentleman and said: “See what a strange set we scientists are! I quite forgot that I had already dined”.

At this moment the servant brought in the other chicken. The visitor explained how matters stood. After a hearty laugh, the hungry scientist sat down to dine.
