I. Aims of the lesson
Teacher: Dear student! You know, in February, Americans celebrate President’s Day, which
honors the birthdays of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and all other past
presidents of the United States.That means when you get elected, there’s automatically
a holiday honoring you- no matter how good you are at job.
Two of America’s greatest leaders, G. Washington and A. Lincoln, were born in
February. Until the 1970s, there were two holidays celebrated in the USA: George
Washington’s birthday (February 22), and Abraham Lincoln’s birthday (February 12).
In 1971, President Richard Nixon decided that one celebration would do and changed
it into one federal holiday called President’s Day. So now American kids have only one
day off school instead of two!
So, today we shall talk not only about these great leaders, but about the other
outstanding people of the USA too.

Change the sentences into reported speech:

4. When 1956 – a year of presidental elections- came around, Senator John F. Kennedy had become a familiar figure in Massachussetts. “I suppose anybody in politics would like to be President”, he said at that time. “It is the centre of action. At least you have an opportunity to do something about all the problems, which I would be concerned with, as a father or as a citizen”.
5.After the war, Robert E. Lee wanted the Southerners to accept being beaten and rebuild their lives, so he said, “Make your sons Americans”.
