Приветствие, сообщение о теме и характере работы на данном уроке.

Good morning! I am very glad to see you and hope that you are ready for the lesson and you are in a good mood. Today the theme of our lesson is «The system of school education in English-speaking countries and in our country». Today we’ll speak about the role of knowledge in our life. Our task is to remember and discuss all aspects of school education which are typical of Great Britain, the USA and our country.

2. Warmingup. Для настройки учащихся на беседу по теме используется высказывание. Teacher: There is a saying about education. Let’s read and translate it.

The better a person is educated, the greater his/her chance for success and high living standard is. (How do you understand it? The more a man knows, the more opportunities he has. Knowledge gives a man great power. Everybody must try to increase his knowledge.)

Do you share this opinion? Why? (Do you agree?)

Knowledge is power, isn’t it?

Where do you get knowledge? (from books, magazines, TV, the Internet)

Do you try to learn all subjects well?

Do you try to broaden your outlook?

3. Развитие речевых навыков.

Teacher: The more we learn – the more we know, The more we know – the more we forget, The more we forget – the less we know. So why study?

So, “Why do you study? Why do you go to school?”, Is education important?”

Pupils: I go to school, because we must get education school;

because secondary education is compulsory;

because we have exams this year; because it is interesting to study;

because I like to take part in social life;

because knowledge is power; because I want to get an interesting profession; because I want to enter a University;

because I want to succeed in life.

Teacher: Have we mentioned all the points?

4. Phonetic practice. Teacher: Now let’s remember proverbs about learning. Match the proverbs and their Russian equivalents. Repeat it after me, please.

Live and learn. Век живи, век учись. Its never late to learn. — Учиться никогда не поздно. Practice makes perfect. Повторениемать учения.

A little learning is a dangerous thing. Недоученный хуже ученого.Learning is an eye in the mind. Учениесвет, а не ученьетьма.

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.- Никогда не откладывай на завтра то, что можешь сделать сегодня.

Teacher: At home you were to prepare the phonetic reading of the poem “Today is yours». Read it, please.

Today is yours

Don’t wait till tomorrow

to reach out and grow,

To learn something interesting

you didn’t know.

Don’t wait till tomorrow

to find ways to share,

To make a new friend,

really show that you care.

Don’t wait till tomorrow

to follow your heart,

To savor the beauty

that life can impart.

Don’t wait till tomorrow

to let yourself start…

Take time to do it today!

What is the idea of the poem? (You shouldn’t waste time, should you? You should find ways to grow, to improve your knowledge. What is your main task now? It the most important time for you, isn’t it? (Do you try to study hard to be well prepared for exam?)

7. Контроль домашнего задания. Teacher: Your homework was to find interesting information about education in English-speaking countries. Let’s listen to some of you.

Примерные ответы учащихся:

Education in Australia

Education in Australia is compulsory between the ages of 6 and 15. Most children (about 70 %) study at state schools where education is free.Most Australians live in cities along the eastern and south–eastern coasts. But there are also many remote inland towns on the continent. So in several states of Australia there are “Schools of the Air”. These schools are situated in the areas far away from the big cities and towns. How do students attend the Schools of the Air? The easiest thing to get a classroom experience is to use a two-way radio or other means of communication. By listening to the radio, watching TV and video the students learn about the world around them though they stay in their own homes.There is also “Schools Through the Mailbox” for children who live far away from any school in the area. Subjects are divided into one-or two-week units. Each unit including new material, illustrations, exercises and tests can be sent to pupils any time.

Schools in the USA

Speaking about schools in the USA I’d like to say that boys and girls start school when they are 6 years old. Most children attend public elementary and secondary schools. The parents do not have to pay for their children’s education in such schools. If a child goes to a private school, his parents pay the school for the child’s education.

Secondary education is compulsory in the USA between the age of 6 and 18. So most students are 18 years old when they graduate from secondary school. At elementary school a student spends 5 or 8 years in different types of schools. High schools provide secondary education.

Today about half of the high school graduates go on to colleges and universities. Some of them are free and a student at a state university does not have to pay very much if his parents live in that state. Private colleges and universities are expensive, however. Almost half of the college students in the United States work while they are studying. When a student’s family is not rich, he has to earn money for the part of his college expenses.

Schooling in Great Britain.

Education in Britain reflects the country’s social system: it is class-divided and selective. The first division is between those who pay and those who do not pay. The majority of schools in Britain are supported by public funds and the education is free there. But there are also public schools and if parents send their children to such schools they must pay for the education.

Another important feature of schooling in Britain is a variety of opportunities offered to schoolchildren. Education in England, Wales and Northern Ireland follows the National Curriculum.

The English school curriculum is divided into Arts (or Humanities) and Sciences. That’s why secondary school pupils study in groups: a Science pupil will study Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics (Maths), Economics, Technical Drawing, Biology, Geography; an Art pupil will do the English language and Literature, History, foreign languages, Music, Art, Drama. Besides these subjects they must do some general education subjects like Physical Education (PE), Home Economics for girls, and Technical subjects for boys, General Science.

Oxford and Cambridge

Oxford and Cambridge are the oldest universities in Britain. Only very rich families can send their children to these universities. Many people think they are the best universities in Britain. Many prime ministers and politicians graduated from these universities. Oxford and Cambridge universities consist of a number of colleges. Each college offers teaching in a wide range of subjects. Oxford and Cambridge different, but in many ways they are alike. Each college has its name, its coat of arms. Oxford and Cambridge is governed by a master. Students study for 3 years and after it they take the Degree of Bachelor of Arts. Some courses, such as languages or medicine may be one or two years longer.

Teacher: Now let’s relax. Look at the word and name as many words as you can for each letter.

Education

e – enter, entrance, exam, elementary

d – discipline, drama

u – university

c – curriculum, compulsory, comprehensive

a – attend, ability, activity
