Izhevsk Talk1

  1. 1. NON-TRADITIONAL TYPES OF ENGLISH LESSONS AT THE STAGES OF FINAL CONTROL AND GENERALIZATION MIKHAIL M. NOKHOV GYMNASIUM # 1 KHASAVYURT, DAGESTAN
  2. 2. Why do we deal with this topic today? <ul><li>The increase of the level of general preparation of the pupils in many respects depends on the rational organization of the process of teaching and further improvement of the methods of education. </li></ul><ul><li>The most important task in mastering the educational process at schools still remains the task in what way the teacher should raise the cognitive activity of the pupils in learning, how he will use in his work different forms and means of teaching English at the lessons. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The problems that the teachers faced: <ul><li>For many years the teachers of English have been looking for new ways to improve the teaching of the English language, especially it concerned the control and generalization lessons. </li></ul><ul><li>The problems were: </li></ul><ul><li>- how to make the lessons interesting, not scaring for the pupils; </li></ul><ul><li>- in what way to organize testing of knowledge and skills acquired by the pupils during a short period of time; </li></ul><ul><li>- in what way to create such a psychological climate at the lesson so that to make pupils feel at ease and show the acquired knowledge; </li></ul><ul><li>- how to make the tasks feasible for the pupils but at the same time created with higher motivation? </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why do we need this? <ul><li>Free possession of English suggests that a pupil should spontaneously react upon different situations of real life, which means that the final goal of the educational process at school is the development of the pupil’s ability to have an unprepared talk in English both monologue and dialogue. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Using computer technologies is one of the means of the solution of the problems mentioned above, but it doesn’t fully solve the problem. It only helps the pupils master grammar phenomena and learn the lexical material on certain topics. Of course in senior forms using the Internet is the best means of enriching the pupils’ knowledge of the history, culture and traditions of the English- speaking countries, but it can’t fulfill the main task - teach them speak. This task is still on the shoulders of a school teacher .
  6. 6. The types of non-traditional lessons at our disposal: <ul><li>Lesson-seminar. </li></ul><ul><li>Lesson excursion. </li></ul><ul><li>Quiz “What? Where? When?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ The Field of Wonders”. </li></ul><ul><li>The Club of Merry and Cute. </li></ul><ul><li>Lesson-conference. </li></ul><ul><li>Lesson – press-conference. </li></ul><ul><li>Linguistic express. Etc. </li></ul>
  7. 7. “ The club of merry and cute” <ul><li>These are the mostly widely spread types of non - standard lessons. The children like them, because the lessons help reveal their knowledge, creative activity. They are especially popular with the pupils of different language levels. </li></ul>
  8. 8. How we organize such lessons: <ul><li>Such lessons are usually held either at the end of the semester (a generalization lesson) or at the beginning of the next one (a repetitive lesson). </li></ul><ul><li>The class or a group of pupils is divided into two teams. In this competition we evaluate the results of the whole team and of each separate pupil, which stimulates pupils’ activity. The tasks are quite various in different aspects of oral communication. </li></ul>
  9. 9. 9 Grade. “Do you know America?” <ul><li>Here are the examples of several tasks for the teams: </li></ul><ul><li>Presentation of the participating teams: names of the teams, emblems, mottoes. </li></ul><ul><li>Questions of the type “Do you know or do you remember?” </li></ul><ul><li>Do you know the name of the first president of the USA? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you know the name of the author of the Declaration of Independence? Etc. </li></ul><ul><li>All of you know a lot about tea-parties, what can you tell us about the Boston Tea party?, etc. </li></ul>
  10. 10. 2 . “Q. look at American History” <ul><li>Name the first people in America. </li></ul><ul><li>Where did the American Indians come from? </li></ul><ul><li>What was the cultural situation in North America before men from Europe came? </li></ul><ul><li>Who was the first to open America- Columbus or the Vikings? </li></ul><ul><li>What can you tell us about Eiriksson’s map of “The Land of the Vine?” </li></ul><ul><li>Who came to the New World in 1620? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you know about the first Thanksgiving celebration?, etc. </li></ul>
  11. 11. 3. Famous people of America <ul><li>Who were they? The team describes a person; the other team must guess who he is. </li></ul><ul><li>For example: He was American. He was born in the backwoods of America in 1809. His parents lived in a log hut. The family was poor and he had to earn his living at the age of 11. He performed a variety of jobs. Later he became a lawyer and was elected President of the USA. He freed the black slaves. He was killed at Ford’s theatre by an actor named John Booth in 1865 . </li></ul>
  12. 12. 4. Competition of the captains. They must answer each other’s questions concerning history, culture, American holidays, etc. The questions are usually rather difficult and the teams greet each failure of the opponent with applause and shouting.
  13. 13. 4. Competition of the captains. <ul><li>Say Tongue Twister. </li></ul><ul><li>To prepare for this competition we use the computer course “Professor Higgins” with lots of tongue twisters. The pupils practice to say them with different speed; besides they can check their pronunciation with the recorded master pronunciation, recording themselves on the computer and listing to both variants . </li></ul>
  14. 14. 4a. Examples of Tongue Twisters How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck would chuck wood . What noise annoys an oyster Unique New York She sells seashells by the seashore. The shells she sells are seashells , I’m sure
  15. 15. 5. The competition of amateur performance <ul><li>Both teams recite the poems, sing folk and popular American songs. </li></ul><ul><li>The jury names the winners, the teacher summarizes the results. </li></ul><ul><li>The jury is always </li></ul><ul><li>strict. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Lesson excursions <ul><li>Such topics can be used as a base for excursions: school, our town, shopping, traveling, going sightseeing.., etc. in 6-7 Grades. </li></ul><ul><li>First we make a tour of the town and collect the material, then we have an oral discussion and write compositions. </li></ul>
  17. 20. Lesson Revue <ul><li>Lessons revue in the 3-5 Grades. </li></ul><ul><li>The number of topics defines the number of role-plays. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Let’s get acquainted.” The class is divided into two groups – English and American children and Russian children. They meet each other, get acquainted, try to find a pen pal for further correspondence. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Family”. One group represents a family – grandfather, grandmother, etc. They speak about each other. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Our School”. One group speaks about junior schools in England the other speaks about our schools. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Birthday”. The hero of the day brings a cake. We organize a tea party. </li></ul>
  18. 21. Lesson Conference <ul><li>The class is given a task to find the material about a certain problem. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, the topic is: “What must we do to keep Dagestan clean”. </li></ul><ul><li>One pupil speaks about general protection of the environment in Dagestan. </li></ul><ul><li>The rest of the pupils speak about air and water pollution, the destruction of mountains, the destruction of a miracle of Dagestan – the dune Sara Koum not far from Makhachkala, about the animals and birds enlisted into the Red Book, etc. </li></ul>
  19. 25. Lesson Press Conference <ul><li>For many years the governments of the Russian Federation, Azerbaijan, Iran, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan have been considering the problem of the demarcation of the sea borders of the Caspian sea, the exploration of it’s bottom and fishing. They have come to the press-conference and try to explain the difficulties they are facing in the solution of all the disputable questions. The pupils – journalists ask them questions. Etc. </li></ul>
  20. 26. LINGUISTIC EXPRESS <ul><li>The class is divided into several groups which will represent carriages. The aim of this expresses is to reach the station of destination safely and without losses. There are several stations on the train’s way: Lexical, Grammatical, Poetic, Musical, Cute, etc. It depends on the teacher’s taste which stations to choose. When the train reaches the station the conductor gets a sealed envelope with the tasks to be done. Collective work is welcomed. </li></ul>
  21. 27. LINGUISTIC EXPRESS <ul><li>The tasks may be the following: </li></ul><ul><li>give the meaning of a certain group of words and compose sentences with them. </li></ul><ul><li>compose a situation with a group of words; </li></ul><ul><li>the words in the sentences are jumbled. Put them in the right order; </li></ul><ul><li>recite the verse we have recently learned; </li></ul><ul><li>speak about …. (depends on the topics recently learned). </li></ul><ul><li>sing your favorite English song, etc. </li></ul>
  22. 28. SING OUT ENGLISH SONGS. <ul><li>The Great Russian teacher Ushinsky wrote: </li></ul><ul><li>“ The joint chant at the lesson is the best teacher’s remedy, which unites, organizes and brings up the pupils’ feelings”. </li></ul>
  23. 29. SING OUT ENGLISH SONGS. <ul><li>The use of singing material stimulates the motivation and in this way helps to assimilate the language material better, thanks to involuntary memorizing the words and the melody. </li></ul><ul><li>The task of joining the pupils to cultural heritage and spiritual values of their own nation and other nations and peoples of the world can be successfully solved in the process of teaching English. </li></ul>
