Ход урока

  1. Организационно-мотивирующий этап.

А) Развитие навыка диалогической речи.

Dear friends! At the previous lesson we started discussing the subject “Natural disasters”. You read and discussed the text “Tsunami Disaster”. Now I’m going to check up your home assignment: Imagine you are a survivor of a tsunami disaster. Act out an interview with a journalist about your experience. If you have any questions about your homework, don’t hesitate and ask me.

The first interview is between Jason and a journalist.

J: Where did you experience a tsunami?

Jason: It happened in Indonesia.

J: You were a member of a rescue team, weren’t you?

Jason: Yes, I was.

J: How did a rescue team help the Indonesian people?

Jason: We distributed rice, water, tinned fish and other supplies to the people.

J: Did you have any difficulties?

Jason: Yes, of course. Cracked roads and collapsed bridges were making it very difficult.

J: What impressed you most of all?

Jason: On Tuesday, we managed to find a 13-year-old girl who was still alive.

J: Oh, really?

Jason: She had been buried underneath a five-storey building for 52 hours.

The second interview is between Bill and a journalist.

J: How did it happen that you experienced a tsunami?

Bill: I was on holiday.

J: Where were you exactly when you realized that something terrible had happened.

Bill: I was sunbathing when I noticed huge waves.

J: What was your first reaction?

Bill: I started to run but I couldn’t because the water was up to my knees. A few seconds later I was under the water.

J: Oh, goodness! How did you manage to escape this disaster?

Bill: Luckily, a man who was on a palm tree pulled me out of the water onto the tree.

J: What happened next?

Bill: After a few hours we were rescued by some local men and they took us to the hospital.

The third interview is held between Sue and a Journalist.

J: I guess that you are a doctor.

Sue: Yes, you are right. At the hotel my colleagues and I were helping injured people. We gave them emergency first aid.

J: What was the character of these injuries?

Sue: Some of injuries were horrific. People were struck by pieces of wood, metal and fallen trees.

  1. Создание учеником СОП по теме “Earthquake. Tornado. Flood. Drought. Avalanche. Hurricane. Cyclone”.

  1. Развитие языковой догадки учащихся:

So, let’s determine what a natural disaster is. Choose the most appropriate variant. You may use your glossary lists.

Слайд 1

A natural disaster is the effect of the earth’s natural hazards (dangers) with a human involvement.

A natural disaster is the problem with the nature itself.

б) развитие лексико-грамматических навыков учащихся:

You are right.

There are different kinds of natural hazards such as a flood, tornado, hurricane, volcanic eruption, earthquake, heatwave or landslide. You’ll see a presentation “Natural disasters”. Each group will take turns of asking the questions. Use dictionary entries from your home assignment (ex. 6 p. 75) while answering the questions.

Слайды 2- 9

- What is an earthquake caused by? (An earthquake is caused by a shaking of the ground)

- A hurricane is caused by an extremely violent wind, isn’t it? (Yes, it is).

- What’s a tornado? (It’s a violent wind storm which consists of a tall column of air spinning around very fast).

- What is thrown from the crater? (A volcanic eruption allows lava to escape from below the surface).

- What is a flood caused by? (It is caused by lack of rain).

When do we have a drought? (We have a drought during the period of dry weather when there is not enough water)

So, now you’ll have some practice in using words referring to our subject “Natural disasters”. You can use the following site for further work with new words

в) развитие навыка аудирования по теме. Использование сайта http://www.englishdom.com/top/weeklybox/56

Now you’ll listen to Cari, a teacher from the online English school. Your task is to fill in the missing words from her interview in your sheets of paper. If you have some problems with the perception of the text, you can use the prompt.

Hello. This is Cari. I’m a teacher with the online English school, Englishdom.com. Today, we’re going to talk about natural disasters. A natural disaster is __an emergency__(1) situation that results from a natural cause and poses significant danger to life or property. Some examples are earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods or droughts, wildfires, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.

Have you ever been in _a natural disaster___ (2)? When I was very young, we lived in Iowa which is flatland (a lot of fields and farming areas) and it was very prone to tornadoes___ (3). And I remember many times, my parents walking the children up in the middle of the night and sending us down to the basement to sleep because we had to take cover (because there was a tornado warning).

Now, a tornado sighting means that someone has actually seen the tornado___ (4). A tornado warning means that the conditions are perfect for a tornado but maybe, one has not been seen yet. So, people are often asked to take cover during a tornado warning and you may or may not actually have a tornado.

However, I do remember one time that, after we woke up in the morning, we went driving around town and there was a lot of _damage__ (5) (trees that had fallen on cars or houses so there had been a tornado touch down).

We also had a tornado warning when I lived in Michigan. It is very common in the schools to practice tornado drills and fire drills; which means we practice what to do in those emergency situations. Out in California, which is prone to earthquakes, in the schools they practice _earthquake drills__ (6).

Слайд 13

For your prompt:

Damage

An emergency

Earthquake drills

A Natural disaster

Tornadoes

Tornado

г) Развитие навыка монологической речи.

Can you give a summary of Cari’s interview?

S1: Cari says that a natural disaster is an emergency situation. It is caused by natural cataclysms and brings danger to life and property. When she was a child, she experienced a tornado warning many times. A tornado warning means that the conditions are perfect for a tornado and people are often asked to take cover during a tornado warning.

S2: Cari tells us about her experience of facing natural disaster. She remembers that her parents often woke the children up in the middle of the night and sent them down to the basement to sleep because they had to take cover.

S3: One more fact, one day after the children woke up , they went driving around a town and they saw a lot of trees that had fallen on cars and houses.

S4: I want to add that Cari also says about the system of protection against natural disasters in schools in Michigan and California. Children practice tornado drills, fire drills and earthquake drills that means they practice what to do in those emergency situations.

  1. Конкретизация знаний учащихся по теме “Natural Disasters”.

А) Групповая презентация слайдов “Earthquake”, “Floods”, “Droughts”, “Wildfires”.

Now, I want you to demonstrate your joint presentation. This presentation is the result of your search for some interesting facts referring to natural disasters..

Earthquake

Pay attention to these words:

a sudden release - внезапное освобождение

crust – кора

vary – изменяться

An earthquake is the result of a sudden release of energy in the Earth’s crust that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes show themselves by vibrations and shaking the ground. The vibrations may vary in magnitude.

Some of the most significant earthquakes in recent times include:

  • The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, the third largest earthquake in recorded history. The huge tsunamis caused by this earthquake cost the lives of 229,000 people.

  • The 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami brought the death to over 13,000 people and over 12,000 people are still missing.

Flood

overflow – разлив, вытекание через край

an expense water - большое количество воды

submerge – затоплять

devastating - разрушительный

A flood is an overflow of an expense of water that submerges land.

Some of the most significant floods include:

  • The Great Flood of 1993 was one of the most devastating floods in the United States history.

  • The 1998 Yangtze River Floods in China left 14 million people homeless.

  • The 2012 Flood in Krasnodar region killed 162 people. Up to 43,000 people were affected by the disaster. The speed of the flood was shocking, carrying away not only homes but 16-ton trucks as well.

Tropical cyclones can result in great flooding, as happened with:

  • Typhoon Nina, which struck China in 1975,

  • Hurricane Katrina, which struck Australia in 2011

Drought

cattle – скот

water shortage – нехватка воды

a drought emergency declaration – объявление чрезвычайного положения, вызванного засухой

If an area has no rainfall or less rain than normal for a long period of time, it is called a drought. Hot dry winds, very high temperature can also result in conditions of the drought.

Well-known historical droughts include:

  • In 2006, some states of Australia had been under drought conditions for 5 to 10 years.

  • In 2006, Sichuan Province in China experienced its worst drought in modern times with 8 million people and over 7 million cattle facing water shortages.

  • In 2011, the State of Texas lived under a drought emergency declaration for the entire calendar year.

Wildfire

combustible vegetation – воспламеняющаяся растительность

break out – разразиться

damage - ущерб



A wildfire is any uncontrolled fire in combustible vegetation that takes place in the countryside or wilderness area.

The 2010 Russian wildfires were several hundred wildfires that broke out across Russia, primarily in the west, starting in late July 2010, due to record temperatures and drought in the region.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev declared a state of emergency in 7 regions for the fires. The fires cost $ 15 billion in damages.

  1. Рефлексия.

Now think about the topic of the lesson and respond to some essential questions,

Why is a natural disaster called a natural disaster?

A natural disaster is called a natural disaster because it is natural; a man has no control over its power.

Disasters are caused by nature, not a man.

What are different natural hazards?

They are earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, avalanches, wildfires, droughts.

Imagine that you live in the area which is prone to one of these natural risks. Would you want to move? Or would you stay because you have roots here or your family here?

I think I would stay because it is my native land. People who live in these areas must follow a natural disaster warning.

In my opinion, it is risky to live in these areas. If you have a chance to move, you’d better

do it.

  1. Домашнее задание: At home you’ll read a text about tornadoes and the next step of your work is to create your own tornado.
