Ход урока

I. The Beginning of the Lesson. Greeting the Class. Teacher’s Introduction to the Lesson. The Theme and the Aims of the Lesson.

• Good morning boys and girls. Glad to see you.

There are a great number of technological advances that make our life easier every day: computers, calculators, digital recorders, CD players, and all of the other gadgets that have become so commonplace. Without a doubt, many of these technological toys have become popular in your class and family. They can make our job and study easier, get us information faster, and keep us connected with friends and family. But through all of this, tell me,please , do all these gadgets have only good sides?

Pupils:Some people think that technology will save the world and make it better, some others think that technology will ruin the society because we are too dependent on electric and electronic gadgets and machines.

Lots of people think using them is harmful.

Well, you are right. What will we discuss today? Right, our theme for today is “Inventions. A High-Tech Life. Pros and Cons.” And what will we do today?

-I think we’ll revise some things we’ve learned before about modern technology.

-To my mind,we’ll listen to and read about arguments for and against some inventions.

-We will know different opinions about high- technological things, advantages and disadvantages of modern inventions and their role in the life of people.-We will give our own opinions, arguments for and against electric and electronic gadgets and machines.

So our purposes for today’s lesson are:1. To know different opinions about inventions, and their role in the life of people.2. To give your own opinions, arguments about electronic gadgets and machines.3. To discuss some statements: (Проблемные утверждения в течение урока высвечиваются при помощи мультимейдийного оборудования)1. We cannot live without modern inventions.2. The mankind can do without modern inventions.3. Everything should be in measure.Read these statements and translate them. We see that popular and necessary things have both positive and negative sides for people. From one side, they help, from another side, they harm. And at the end of the lesson we must make our decision for both sides.

Завершение работы. Выводы. Решение проблемы, поставленной на уроке.Teacher: Well, students. Let’s do the conclusion. Do you remember the purposes of our lesson? Look at the blackboard.You can see here some arguments. And they are approximately equal. What are your decisions according these statements?Учащиеся делают выводы:Technology- especially consumer electronics- are some of the greatest advances currently being made available to all members of Russia society. They can make our jobs easier, get us information faster, and keep us connected with friends and family. But through all of this, children, like adults, are not immune from the «gotta have it now» syndrome.

I would argue that although inventions have certain disadvantages people would not be able to survive without them. However, I believe that we should improve them to lower their harmful influence on people’s health.

I want to say that virtually every technology has its pros and cons. I believe we should not reject them for the bad effect they have. On the contrary, we must learn how to make the best use of them.
