Good afternoon, boys and girls. I’m glad to meet you in our school library where our lesson will take place. We’ll try to remember all the material we’ve learnt during the previous lessons. There’s one more person who will help us to acquaint ourselves with the latest issues of the Russian magazines for teens. It’s our school librarian Elena Vitalyevna.
The quotation of today’s lesson is the words by S. Maugham. Have you got any ideas why I’ve chosen these words as an epigraph to the lesson? We’ll try to give an answer to this question at the end of the $lesson.
Now let’s start with the words we’ve met while studying the topic “What’s the news?”
While we’re working together I’ve got some individual tasks for the pupils. (Some pupils are given the following tasks “Make a perfect TV programme for children” or “Make a perfect TV programme for sport lovers” etc. They do it on the prepared sheets of paper.)
Make as many phrases as possible.
Add some more words on the following topics.
Horror, detective, documentary, . . .
Discussions, talk show, weather forecast, . . .
$Large photos, headlines, foreign news, . . .
Creative, funny, unrealistically, . . .$
Thanks. It’s high time to check the mini projects of our TV directors.
