Домашнее задание и воспитательный момент урока.
Teacher: To my mind it’s high time to answer my question which was asked at the
beginning of the lesson. Why are George Washington and Abraham Lincoln
especially remembered in American history?
(pupils’ answers)
Teacher: As you see both presidents played an important role in American history,
were great figures. They had difficult childhood and had to work hard, had a strong
will. Could we call them “willing hearts”? I think we could.
I hope you have already noticed that the quotation of our lesson is
“Nothing is impossible to a willing heart”
How do you understand this quotation? Explain the meaning of it.
(pupils’ answers).
Teacher: Judging by your words everybody who works hard can be called “a
willing heart”. I agree with you. And every willing heart has a chance to become a
major, a governor and even a president. If you are “a willing heart” you will have a
chance to be a president. The only thing you need is a wish to study and to work
hard, to broaden your outlook.
So you will start to work hard at home. Your hometask for Wednesday will
be the retelling of the text. You may choose any president you like but your
retelling should contain not less than 15 sentences. Write down your hometask, ex.
26, p. 272.
8. Ролевая игра.
Teacher: And now we shall play an “Interview” game. Let’s work in pairs. One of
you will be a president, another one will be a journalist from a popular television
programme. An interviewer will ask the president some questions about his life
and political career and you should guess who he is. I’ll give you the cards with
useful information. You have two minutes in order to prepare the task.(an “Interview” game).
9. Обобщение урока.
Teacher: Today we had an interesting meeting with American presidents and with
the president of our country. You have known some facts about Lincoln and
Washington’s life. Now you know that both presidents had strong characters. They
had to do a lot of things by themselves, were honest, brave, wise, active, devoted to
their country. People trusted them.
All of you should have such features of character. They will help you to
become outstanding people. I wish you to develop these qualities in your character.
Who knows, may be one of you will be a famous scientist and invent the time
machine or will be the greatest poet like Pushkin, the cleverest politician and even
a president. All depends on you.
