Summing up the lesson


Saying good-bye

1. Good afternoon! You may take your seats! I am very glad to see you today!


2. Introduction. Today we are going to devote our lesson to newspapers. Mainly we shall talk about different types of British newspapers. You’ll get to know a few interesting facts about their size and contents. And if time permits we’ll have a look at the latest issues of ‘Moscow News’.
By the way, can you tell me if you read newspapers?
How do learn the latest news? What sources of information do you prefer?
(Students give answers. It is expected that among the main sources there will be the internet and TV)

3. Since you all have just mentioned the internet and television let us revise the vocabulary of our previous lessons about “the world of mass media”.
(It is possible to use a spider graph from the textbook p.146 or to draw your own spider graph on the blackboard. We also practice the vocabulary by means of putting the words into the following categories: “THINGS” (PC, radio, newspapers and magazines etc);  “PEOPLE” (editor, reporter, journalist etc);  “FUNCTIONS” (informing, entertaining)

Now let us have a look at the main sources of information for conservative British people.
It is necessary to make sure that the students know the meaning of the words before reading: “dailies”, “qualities”, “circulation” and it is also advisable to set a time limit depending on the level of the group.

The students study Item A and  Item B about two types of newspapers in Britain (pp.147-148).

It is possible to make up a short summary of what the students have just learned, or students can complete Figures 1&2 showing the differences between popular papers and quality papers in their contents and presentation (Ex. 4 pp. 148-149) in the textbook.

Now you may easily contrast and compare the following two newspapers: ‘The Daily Telegraph’ (Britain’s best-selling quality daily) and ‘The Moscow News’ (weekly independent newspaper).
What kind of newspapers are these?
Are they quality or popular papers? Why?
Students  contrast and compare the newspapers and prove their opinion.

(Usually I ask my friends or colleagues to bring the latest issue of any English newspaper from abroad so as to  show it to my students;  copies of  ‘The Moscow News’ or ‘The Moscow Times’ may be easily obtained in the centre of Moscow. It is also possible to find information about these newspapers in the internet: www. moscownews.ru  or www.moscowtimes.ru)


At every lesson we try to practice various exam tasks. At this lesson we are going to listen to an interview about a new newspaper. Students are given 10 seconds to look through the task before listening. Students listen to the interview twice and for questions 1-5 they choose the best answer (A, B or C).
After the students  have completed the task, we check it in class.

Today we have discussed the British newspapers.
Hope you have enjoyed it. Will you write down the home assignment for the next lesson?
(The teacher gives the home assignment and finishes the lesson).

 Thank you for the lesson. Good-bye!
