IV. Построение проекта решения учебных задач урока

Teacher:  To learn more about British families I offer you to read the text and fill in the gaps (1-6) with phrases (A-G). There is one phrase that you do not need to use.

The Changing face of the British Family”

The traditional nuclear family of 1960s Britain consisted of a married male breadwinner and female care living in a household with their children. This is now a thing of the past.

Since the sixties, a dramatic change in the structure of family life has taken place in the UK. Marriage rates have been declining 1)...  . Divorce rates have increased dramatically in the past four decades. There are also more and more couples 2)… .
Single parents are no longer the exception and women have started giving birth to fewer children later on in life. The result is that it is becoming increasingly rare to find the nuclear family structure in 21st century Britain. Indeed, researches agree that by 2020 it will be very difficult to talk about the “typical British family”3)… .

While many people worry about the “breakdown” of the family, others propose another way of looking at things. These people suggest that families are not falling apart. Rather, the future of the family is stronger than ever in the UK. Families may live apart 4)…  . Surveys show that family members who live apart still turn to each other 5)… . And families are still responsible for most of the socializing which occurs in British life. Also, it is conversations between family members 6)… .

In other words, the change that the family has undergone in the last few decades is not so much breakdown. It is a reinvention. Families in the UK are still highly valued and will continue to be so in the future.

A)     but the emotional support and commitment between family members remains just as strong as ever.
B)     because there will be many different types
C)     so in fact relationships between family members are improving
D)     for support when important life events occur
E)     which accounts for a large percentage of telephone usage in the UK
F)     and the age at which people marry has been increasing
G)    who have chosen not to marry

Answers: 1) F; 2) G; 3) B; 4) A; 5) D; 6) F.

The teacher should monitor the students.   Check the task.

Then pupils answer the teacher’s questions.

– Do you think British and Russian families different or alike?
– Is this good or bad that our families different?
– Is there an international holiday of the family? If so, when is it celebrated?
– Is there a family holiday in Russia? How is it called?

V. Развитие навыков монологического высказывания учащихся

Teacher: Now I’d like you to state your opinion and say what kind of a family you would like to have in the future.  Some of you may write a few sentences on the topic. See the model.

Model: I would like to have an extended family. There will be three kids and many relatives. This will allow me to enjoy great family traditions. And my children will learn to be flexible and communicative…

Pupils represent their talks

Приложение 1 (слайд 6).

Teacher: Read this abstract. Complete it with your idea about family values.

Families in different cultures are different because people are different as well as their believes, customs and lifestyle. The most important thing to remember is that no matter what your family is like, it is always a value.
