При обучении английскому языку перед учителем встает несколько проблем: как постоянно поддерживать интерес учащихся к изучению иностранного языка, как в рамках учебного процесса направить деятельность учащихся в коммуникативное русло, что нужно сделать, чтобы создать и поддерживать активную мотивацию у детей к изучению языка? Очень важно организовать мероприятия на принципах личностно- ориентированного образования для решения всех этих задач. Неделя английского языка должна быть распланирована таким образом, чтобы были охвачены все ступени обучения. Кроме того, учитывались интересы учащихся при подготовке сценария недели, где бы они могли полностью творчески раскрыться. Настроение праздника, языковая атмосфера создаются при помощи музыки, английских юмористических изречений и высказываний, висящих на стенах холла и коридоров школы, красочно оформленными стенгазетами о странах, городах, праздниках и традициях стран изучаемого языка, просмотром видеофильмов на английском языке. Данное мероприятие позволяет направленно формировать познавательные интересы учащихся, расширять кругозор и сферы применения полученных и имеющихся знаний и умений. Сначала дети тренируют свои способности в рифмовке слов, а затем изучают видео построения «Лимериков».

Круглый стол

«Граффити: искусство или вандализм?»

10 класс
В гимназии прошёл круглый стол с учащимися 10-ых классов, в процессе которого ребятам было предложено отправиться в мир граффити (поговорить о понятии "граффити”, познакомиться с историей развития данного движения и существующих стилях граффити). Тема круглого стола была выбрана не случайно, она является актуальной для современных подростков, в частности, и нашего города, в целом. Данное молодёжное движение вызвало большой интерес у учащихся, они активно учавствовали в обсуждениях, дополняли социального педагога гиманазии и делились своими мнениями. Круглый стол включал множество форм работы, поэтому подросткам не приходилось скучать. Ребятам была предоставлена возможность оригинально изобразить название своей команды, используя любую форму граффити, и представить её. Подростки также работали в группах, разбирали различные ситуации с позиции законов и обсуждали ответственность за нанесённый ущерб "незаконного” творчества. Педагог подготовила для учащихся памятки "Ответственность за нанесение граффити” и рассказала о гимназистах, состоящих на учёте в ИДН за повреждение чужого имущества. По итогу встречи, были определены две совершенно противоположные сферы применения граффити: 1. Созидательная, связанная с эстетическим благоустройством города. 2. Разрушительная (вандализм). Ребята сделали вывод: молодёжное направление граффити существует, от этого никуда не деться, но в каком виде она нужна современному городу. Очень бы хотелось, чтобы данное направление развивалось исключительно как искусство.

Thought provokers
1. A lot of people (both the authorities and common people) consider graffiti vandalism and therefore find it illegal. 2. Many people (especially young people) consider graffiti as art. 3. There are talented people among graffiti artists. Society must find the ways to help them develop their talents. 4. Graffiti inscriptions contain social and political connotations which are not liked by all social groups. They foster hostility. 5. Graffiti make cities look ugly. They are often offensive and intimidating. 6. There are no or very few special places for graffiti artists to express themselves. 7. Young people don’t know what to do in their spare time. That’s why they turn to graffiti. 8. Parents should take better care of their children’s upbringing. They should spend more time with their children and direct their interests. 9. The society is not tolerant enough to youth subculture. 10. There are more dangerous “evils” than graffiti in society.
Preamble.
Man has always scribbled and drawn on walls: for example, the graffiti of prehistoric man has become a museum piece. If man draws on walls now, his graffiti does not become a museum piece. It is wiped off walls as soon as it is put there. Yet aerosol art has become a serious business to a growing number of young people and their messages are on the wall - in the same way as prehistoric man used to use his wall paintings as a way of communicating. Graffiti art, or graff to use its slang or popular name, takes a number of forms. It can be an individual scribble, often just the initials of the artist, or something which is much larger,
11 and like a mural. Each artist has her or his own tag, or signature, and each piece of graff is tagged. For some artists, graff is a reaction, while for others it is a thought-out expression. Either way, the graffiti has the personal stamp of the young person on it and it is an expression of her or his feelings. The motivation behind г can be happiness or sadness, frustration or relief. For this reason, graff is very close to the hearts of young people. Graffiti as a youth culture has its roots in America, but British graffiti has come a long way in a short time. Its influences include pop music and cartoons. Some of it is so creative that art dealers have started to show an interest in it. Some people find graffiti offensive. Graffiti- painting can lead to other crimes… It disrupts travel…Costs of cleaning up graffiti are passed on to rail passengers in higher fares…Graffiti can be dangerous… What’s your opinion? Today we have a particular case related to graffiti. The case requires a solution. You represent different sides with the opposite views. Can we solve the problem? Can we come to a compromise? Let’s try. I’m sure it is going to be a heated discussion and nobody will stay indifferent. Good luck!

Graffiti: Art or Vandalism?
By Kary123, Сhelsea, MA A lady walks down the streets she goes to a train station, she waits a few minutes for the train. The train pulls up, before she boards it she notices a beautiful graffiti painted on the side of the train.”That is such an amazing piece of art. But then again wouldn’t that make it vandalism? I wonder if that person asked permission?” A lot of people wonder this question is Graffiti art or vandalism? When I go home I pass a lot of graffiti. One day I passed a beautiful graffiti, it was amazing. It had a lot of colors but mostly red, white and black, with other colors mixed in here and there. When I saw this it got me thinking. I did some research. I learned that modern graffiti comes in many different forms, from the scrawled messages in a public bathroom stall to the spray-painted murals on subway walls. The simplest form of graffiti is scrawled message; ”Sally loves Рeter” or ”James woz here.”Some people see this as vandalism since it lacks artistic merit, yet the point of graffiti is to send an expressive message to the reader, whether it is political, social or personal view. While doing online research I picked up some views that people had. Like an anonymous person who said that it really all depends on the message being passed through to the reader. The rest of the views opinions that I saw were all pretty much the same. And they all said that graffiti could be both art and vandalism. One opinion that really caught my eye was done by an anonymous source. That person said “I think you have to look at the intention behind the graffiti writer’s actions. If they are trying to express themselves its art, but if they have the intention of harming someone else`s property its vandalism. That being said I would say most graffiti writers don’t write on someone else’s property because they want to disrespect or cause trouble to the owner but because they want their work to be seen {even if it’s a tag showing their hand style}. We don’t accuse someone of murder if they accidentally run over someone on the street and end up
12 causing their death because the driver DID NOT intend to kill the person. I’m NOT saying graffiti is legal, but you have to agree there is a difference between throwing eggs at someone’s window for malicious intent and putting a piece of graffiti on it so that other people can see it. The latter is not vandalism. I loved this opinion because that person made really good sense about the person doing the graffiti and how they are trying to express their feelings. My opinion about this matter is that graffiti can be both art and vandalism. It really all depends on what the picture expresses to you and what you see. But everyone has their own opinions and everyone sees everything differently. My class and I went walking around Chelsea. While we were walking I took 2 pictures. One is a door and it has a bunch of sayings and names, and all of those are written in different hand styles. When you look at this picture you instantly think that it is vandalism and maybe you are right. But if you take a look at the other picture you see a beautiful mural with a tree and heart. It also has school stuff portraying that it is good to learn. Basically this picture is motivation and when you look at it you instantly think its art. Lately I have been thinking that maybe the government should leave a wide white wall. That section could be for graffiti only. It would solve the problem of illegal graffiti. Because all the people who do graffiti would only have to go to that wall and do whatever graffiti they like. My opinion on graffiti will always be the same. Sometimes I get confused. I wrote this article to convince that graffiti can be both good and bad. But I can’t make you think that you have to figure it out yourself.

Graffiti – a dangerous way of life.
Scrawling graffiti is seen as a crime in the UK, yet in the US it has become a recognised art form. Just a few weeks ago eight graffiti gang members were convicted of causing £5,000 worth of damage on the London Underground. They are among more than 70 hard-core graffiti artists thought to be operating in London today. Most are aged under 20. Graffiti artists, or 'graffers', operate in many British towns. They often work at night, covering walls, trains and railway stations with brightly painted murals or scrawls in spray paint and marker pen. Some people regard graffiti as a form of vandalism and a menace. London Underground says that railusers find it ugly and offensive. It spends £2m a year dealing with graffiti, and has even introduced trains with graffiti-resistant paint. 'We don't think it's artistic or creative - it's vandalism. It's a huge nuisance to our customers, and it's ugly and offensive, says Serena Hoik, a spokeswoman for London Underground. 'It creates a sense of anarchy and chaos,' says Richard Mandel, a barrister who prosecuted the graffiti gang. 'Passengers feel as if the whole rail system is out of control.' British Transport Police has a graffiti unit designed to catch graffers in the act. It spent five months tracking down the recently prosecuted gang. Graffiti art can also be a dangerous pastime. London Underground says that some teenagers have died in accidents during nocturnal graffiti 'raids'. However, others say that graffiti at its best is an art form. Art galleries in London and New York have exhibited work by increasingly famous graffiti artists. 'Of course graffiti is art. There's no question about that,'' says David Grob, director of the Grob Gallery in London. Even some of those who think graffiti is wrong admit that graffers are talented. 'It's just that their
13 artistic talent is channelled in the wrong direction,' says Barry Kogan, a barrister who represented Declan Rooney, one of the gang members. There is a difference between 'good graffiti' and vandalism, says Dean Colman, a 24- year-old graffiti artist. 'I'd never spray private property, like someone's house. Some graffiti are disgusting. There's a big difference between that and graffiti which can brighten up grey walls.' Dean makes a living as a graffiti artist. His days of illegal spraying are behind him, he says. He has worked on a television programme about graffiti, designed a series of government posters, and decorated nightclubs. He has exhibited his work at Battersea Arts Centre in London, and he has taught graffiti-spraying in youth clubs. Dean sees himself as an artist, and thinks that graffiti art does not get due recognition. 'There's no graffiti art in the Tate Gallery and there should be,' he says. 'Graffiti is as valid as any other art form.'

(From “The Guardian”)
Where do you expect to see graffiti? Probably not in a museum. Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, in the south-west of England, was the kind of place you went to see classical statues and stuffed animals in cases until the arrival of the ‘Banksy versus the Bristol Museum’ exhibitio in society n in the summer of 2009. The exhibition hosted more than 100 works by Banksy, one of the world’s most famous graffiti artists. Banksy is a man of mystery. He hardly ever gives interviews and likes to be anonymous. Nobody knows much about his life or his background but many people believe that his real name is either Robin Gunningham, Robert Banks or Robin Banks and that he was born in 1973 near Bristol. Banksy’s controversial ‘street art’ includes spray paintings on live sheep and cows and graffiti on the huge wall erected to divide Israel and Palestine. Brad Pitt spent over 2 million dollars on a Bansky original. Banksy designed an album cover for the Britpop group Blur in 2003 but he has refused at least four requests to do adverts for Nike. A year after the Bristol exhibition, Banksy made a film called Exit Through the Gift Shop. The film tells the story of a French street artist in America. Exit Through the Gift Shop received many positive reviews. Nobody knows if it was about a real artist or an invented character from Banky’s imagination. Bristol isn’t the only place in Britain to welcome graffiti. The DPM Park in Dundee, Scotland has the longest legal graffiti wall (almost 110 metres long) in the UK. Anyone can paint on the council-owned wall any time they like. Mike Crilley, the graffiti wall project organiser, promotes the positive side of graffiti and runs workshops for local children. Is everyone doing graffiti? Can we do graffiti where we want these days? Not exactly. It’s illegal to paint on somebody else's property so make sure you find a legal graffiti wall like the one in Dundee if you want to have a go.

The Dangerous Life of a Graffiti Artist.
Posted on September 29, 2011 So you think you have what it takes to be a graffiti artist? Consider this: - Are you quick on your feet? - Can you think fast in high-pressure situations? - The kicker (and this is a big one): Are you willing to spend time in jail?
14 Not everyone is destined to be a graffiti artist. It takes a lot of hard work, practice, and skill to be a capable and respected tagger. It’s not just about creating beautiful works of spray paint (although that’s a huge chunk of it), a tagger must also be quick and nimble, effective enough to successfully evade obstacles that are thrown their way. One small misstep, and they risk getting thrown in jail for vandalism and public indecency. There are many factors that taggers go up against every single time they step out of the door in the dead of the night with their dark attire, athletic runners, and a backpack reeking of aerosol. Taggers expect that anything and everything will go wrong during their trip. There are so many dangers that I’ve dwindled the list down to the top six most dangerous factors that taggers might face every time they set out in the dead of the night and create works of street art. ____________________________________________________________________
Police
The police (or “Hogs” as taggers like to call them) are a tagger’s public enemy numero uno! The hogs stand as the number one obstacle to not just taggers but also street artists. Their duty is to preserve the city from vandals and they patrol the streets to enforce their laws, because of this their ideals clash with street artists who wish to use public space to express their art. The hogs are notorious for locking taggers in jail and feeding them hefty fines and community service. Seeing as all types of public properties are a required necessary for taggers, hogs make it a point to patrol these areas with the sole intent of cracking down on these ‘vandals’. In some of the more populated cities (New York, London and Germany) where vandalism continues to be an overwhelming concern, government officials specifically instruct hogs to crack down on graffiti artists. Often, patrol units are dispatched late at night to contain and restrict taggers from venturing out. To the taggers, these hogs stand for something greater. They represent the roadblocks standing between their ability to openly express themselves, and are the main reason why graffiti and street has become to be known as medium that attacks the authority. ____________________________________________________________________
Environment
The environment is another factor that poses a serious threat to taggers. As more art is made and space is filled up, taggers are forced to find new places to create their art. Why don’t they just write over old graffiti you ask? Well for one that’s asking for a definite ass-kicking. A code of honor is shared amongst all taggers and going over someone’s work is a sign of straight disrespect, and they will come after you! Each work must be preserved and respected. If there is no room, simply look for another place. However, once all the building walls are inevitably filled up, taggers are forced to seek out new spots – some of them being more difficult to access. They began climbing fire escapes to reach high rise billboards, some jumped from one building to another in order to access exclusive places where graffiti hasn’t found its way in yet. It’s a very dangerous price to pay, but one that some taggers are willing to risk if it meant a new spot for their works to be displayed, or one that would instantaneously catch the public’s attention. Unfortunately, the environment has caused many casualties – many taggers fall to their deaths climbing the high structures, and some die due to accidents caused by rainfall and other forces of nature. It’s important as a tagger to evaluate the pros and cons before setting out and putting
15 up a new piece – “Should I go or is it truly in my best interest to stay and let the weather rest before heading out?” Be smart about the situation and always be wary of your surroundings! ____________________________________________________________________
Gangs
In some poverty-stricken neighborhoods, gangs are very common and widespread. Gangs are very territorial and mark their territories with their own signature graffiti. When venturing into these neighborhoods, taggers must be especially wary and always be on the look out for these gang tags. When they see a wall marked, make a complete 180 and look for another wall. While it’s tempting to write on a fresh wall with lots of space, getting severely beaten to a pulp by a group of thugs is most certainly not. In America, there are certain incidents where gangs have killed rival artists who have invaded their territory. A tagger must be aware of his or her surroundings at all times, and if something feels wrong, it probably is. ____________________________________________________________________
Subway Trains
Subway trains pose an extreme risk to taggers, as they can cause instant death. Absolute beasts of machinery, subway trains travel in lightning speeds throughout the city. In order to access secluded spots where taggers can safely perform their craft, taggers usually jump fences in order to get to these places. However, the inherent danger with this (especially in a city like New York) is that these areas usually have trains running through them. Some routes are not protected by wall fencing, and thus at night in complete darkness taggers must know exactly where they are. There are far too many horror stories of the NYPD discovering bodies of taggers sliced and diced on railroad tracks the morning after, this goes back to point number two, always be aware of your surroundings! ____________________________________________________________________
Time
Time is money. An artist must be skilled when creating their piece. They must be lightning quick in their application and bolt once their work is completed. Time is valuable. Taggers don’t have the luxury to take their time with their art as other artists do due to graffiti being considered illegal. For taggers, it’s basically get in, spray, spray, spray and get the #$&@ out – and pray you don’t run into any of the other factors mentioned above on the way to safety! Tick tock… tick tock… ____________________________________________________________________
Final Word
Being a tagger is no easy job. The fact is; creating great works of graffiti is only half the battle. Batting the elements mentioned above is the other half. Don’t be so quick to judge, taggers have it the hardest. Fueled by their passion however, a new sense of respect can be attributed to these people who risk their lives providing us with great works of street art to marvel and look at. Do you have what it takes to be a graffiti artist? Maybe, maybe not but in the mean time we all can appreciate their hard work, and give them the respect that they deserve for all that they risk to do something that they truly love.

“Do you know the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland?”

5 класс
При обучении английскому языку перед учителем встает несколько проблем: как постоянно поддерживать интерес учащихся к изучению иностранного языка, как в рамках учебного процесса направить деятельность учащихся в коммуникативное русло, что нужно сделать, чтобы создать и поддерживать активную мотивацию у детей к изучению языка? Очень важно организовать мероприятия на принципах личностно- ориентированного образования для решения всех этих задач. Настроение праздника, языковая атмосфера, музыка, английские высказывания, висящие на стенах коридоров школы, красочно оформленными стенгазетами о странах, праздниках и традициях стран изучаемого языка, просмотр видеофильмов на английском языке производят на детей сильное впечатление. Викторины по английскому языку помогают учащимся полностью раскрыться творчески, формируют познавательные интересы учащихся, расширяют кругозор и сферы применения полученных и имеющихся знаний и умений учащихся.
