Teacher: Good morning, my dear friends! Let’s start our lesson. The theme of our lesson for today is «What makes people different? » and we will speak about peoples' characters. We’ll know more information about your teachers, your classmates, their appearance, characters, hobbies and interests. We have to learn to express our opinions about it. But at first let’s do some gymnastic for tongues (tongue twister, Презентация 1, слайд 3).
Teacher: Well, thank you. And now tell me, please, what do you think about this question? (students' opinions). Good. So, people can be different in appearance, personality, beliefs and opinions, education, tastes, language and culture, behavior and manners and so on. But let’s check up, if you remember human features of character. There are two columns of words and you have to find antonyms. (slide with antonyms, презентация 1, слайд4).
Teacher: I think it’s important to look great. People should take care of their appearance and worry about how they look. There are many proverbs about that. Match the proverbs and their Russian equivalents.
Teacher: What do you think can influence our character?...... Well, in our group there are students that believe that stars have an influence on us. Let’s listen to them (Project: Signs of the zodiac, презентация 1, слайды 5-14)
Pupil 1: There are 12 signs of the zodiac. These are: Aquarius, Sagittarius, Cancer, Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Scorpio, Leo, Libra, Capricorn, Taurus, and Aries.
P2: And astrologers believe that these signs can influence people's character.
P1: They suppose that every sign has its typical traits of character and behavior.
P2: Let's find out, if it is really so.
P1: Well, in our group we have 3 Aquarius. These people are friendly and cheerful. They have a lot of brilliant and crazy ideas, they like to be different. In our group these are … Stars say that they are wise, impartial, kind. They like to tell truth.
P2: Pisces. People of this sign are quiet, a bit lazy. They like helping other people, they are good at art. But they are whimsical and haughty. This all is about our ….
P1. I think that not everyone will agree with stars, but let’s go on. The next sign in our horoscope is Aries. These people are usually generous, bossy, and a bit selfish. They are often angry and bad-tempted. They like sport. They don’t like to lie and are not cruel. These are …
P2. Two students in our group, … were born under the sign of Taurus. The people of this sign are careful and helpful. They like working in the garden, like nature, flowers, like cooking food. They are hardworking, loyal, have a good sense of humor. But they are obstinate.
P1. Being obstinate is sometimes very useful.
P2. That’s just I was thinking.
P1. Well, let's pass to the next sign. Gemini. It is a very interesting sign. These people are clever, funny, cheerful, but fickle and impatient. They are interested in books, like traveling and chatting with friends - they are talkative. These are …
P2. Leo. This is … Stars tell us that he is confident, proud, purposeful. He is a loyal friend and a strong enemy. He likes extravagant things and luxury. He is very cheerful.
P1. A direct opposite of Leo is Virgo. They are critical, careful, shy and even-tempted. Untidy people annoy them. They like animals and to put aside money. They are very thrifty. We speak about …
P2. Finally we came to the last sign in our group: Scorpio. It is very inconsistent. People are clever and brave, but not very honest and egocentric. They always get what they want. They are good friends.
P1. Well, we presented you stars' influence on human characters. Do you agree with it?
Teacher: Well, thank you girls and what about you? Do you agree with it? .....
Thank you, boys and girls. And now let’s play. Take pieces of paper and write down three adjectives that mean your main features. (Play “Describe yourself”) Good, thank you. And now play for the teams/ you have to describe a person from the opposite team in 3-5 adjectives or examples and then to guess who it is. (Play “Who is it?”)
Teacher: Well, we found out that stars can influence our character. But what about geography? Does our character depend on the place, on the country we live? We have learned enough about Russia, about the USA and about the UK. And now let's look throw some presentation and think could it be or no? (Презентация 2) Tell me please what you think about it. (Discussing)
Teacher: And now let’s listen to the story about two friends, Tim and Jim. After listed to it you have to describe characters of the boys and compare it. (Working in groups). So, we see that people can be different but they can be friends. But what do you think a real friend should be?(Diagram) See you, your imagination about it is different too. So, let’s make a conclusion to our lesson: we all are different but we have to get along with each other.
