Як зробити перший урок після канікул цікавим?

Перше вересня -  свято знань, і традиційно (як не дивно) ніякі знання в цей день  учні не отримують.
Уроки, які проводяться першого вересня,  частіше за все мають вигляд спроби змусити учнів згадати щось із тієї інформації, яка була вивчена протягом попереднього навчального року, або лекцію із вуст вчителя про важливість освіти та нового етапу навчання.

Урок іноземної мови, англійської зокрема – урок, де кожна хвилина чітко розпланована та використовується з користю, але не у випадку першого вересня. В даній статі ми запропонуємо Вам варіанти вправ/ігор/тем для дискусій, які Ви сміливо можете використати для першого заняття з англійської мови, щоб воно пройшло цікаво і з користю.

ACADEMIC PRESENTATION AS A KEY SKILL

Giving presentation is a key skill and competence our learners will need in the future. Regardless of the language, being a good speaker makes so many things easier and opens a lot of doors in life. So, how can we teach our students to be good speakers? And the more important question is whether we should do it at all?

Giving presentation is a key skill and competence our learners will need in the future. Regardless of the language, being a good speaker makes so many things easier and opens a lot of doors in life. So, how can we teach our students to be good speakers? And the more important question is whether we should do it at all? stat_cup1

Looking at the current trends and growing amount of gatherings, conferences and seminars, we think that we should. Academic presentations are vital for secondary and higher education students when they need to present projects, thesis and research results.

Teaching presentation skills often involves other abilities as well. Building a speech requires good mastery of grammar and vocabulary, functional language, writing and speaking skills. Presenting in English is a double challenge for language learners as they have to perform in their non-native language with a degree of confidence and be able to structure their thoughts.stat_cup2

In order to integrate teaching presentation skills with my group of advanced learners I watched and analysed the talk of Steve Jobs, his commencement speech at Stanford University in particular. Steve Jobs is admired by millions of people around the world, especially the youth, and can be regarded as one of the very good examples of a presenter and a public speaker. So, first we broke down his speech into three parts, as he was telling three stories of his life and it made it easier for students to analyse the structure and the content of the talk. We then had the vocabulary and the listening task each time and it took us two lessons to work through his speech in total. Students were also provided with the video script at the end for further use. I then assigned learners with the task to write their own commencement speech for the final ‘graduation’ lesson at the end of our school year. Learners were to plan their speech, including the target vocabulary and functional language, draft and review it. Afterwards, they were to present it during the final two lessons of our semester. It is very important to encourage and praise every student’s effort in making such a big creative project, therefore each of the speakers was awarded with a certificate and ‘sweet treats’ from the teacher.

Praising students’ work is important and can be debated and discussed further on, but I personally believe that when students do and then present a creative task, they should be properly praised and encouraged.
