2.Чтение текста о том, как американские подростки проводят своё

свободное время.

: Now we are going to read a text about three American teenagers and how they spend their free time. While reading try to find answers to the following questions: 1. Name the leisure activities of these teenagers; 2. Why do they work? 3. What do they need money for? Many American teenagers don’t spend their free time just sitting around and doing nothing.
Jared Johnson
, 15, of Skowhegen works because he wants to have to spend when he’s not working. Johnson doesn’t just work at one job doing constructon in Bangor, he also works on weekends at Hannford. On top of that he has ice hockey games every Sunday, and lifts weights for
football on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. “Mostly I’m working to save money just to have it in case,’’- Johnson said. “ And college is coming up and I need my own vehicle’’. When he comes home around 6 p.m. during the week he’s pretty tired, but still has enough hours of daylight left to go to the movies with friends or lift weights for football on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. “Mostly I’m working to save money to have it in case ,’’ Johnson said. “And college is coming up and I need my own vehicle”. When he comes home around 6 .p.m. during the week he’s pretty tired, but still has enough hours of daylight left to go to the movies with friends or lift weights. But most days he comes home with just enough time left to sit and relax before eating dinner and going to bed and to do it all again tomorrow. But Johnson thiks all his hard work will pay off. My construction work and just working a lot shows that I’m not afraid of hard work, and I think that will look good on my resume’’- he said.
Lydia Proulx,
14, from Texas uses her job to try to save money for a car. So, she splits her time between hanging out with friends and working eight hours a day at the veteran’s home.
Chris Caron, 16,
from Skowhegan, USA works four days a week at Burger King, plays in a summer ice hockey League, races cars with the sports car club of America, and plays play station games.
Do you work during the school year or during your summer holidays?
Simple answers: 1.
No, unfortunately not. I would like to but most firms don’t like to employ children and teenagers ;
Yes. I worked this summer. I helped our neighbors with their child;
Yes, I helped my mother in the shop.

Чтение текста о телевизионных пристрастиях американских подростков (Чтение на основе прочитанного) T: And now we are going to read a text about the TV viewing habits of American teenagers and about their favourite leasure activities,.The activity most popular with girls is hanging out with friends. This increases from 20 percent in Grade 3 (8 year olds). Social activities – friends and shopping become girls’ clear priorities as they grow older they prefer: TV viewing,
reading for pleasure and sports and declining. Boys want to hang out with friends too, particurlarly as they grow older. However, computer games are also a highly favoured activity. As for watching TV, the Simpsons and friends are the most popular TV programs both with girls and boys. Top choices among boys are animated programs, comedies and sports. Top choices among girls tend to be programs featuring people in supposedly realistic situations and often focusing on social relationships. The kids surveyed identified the news as one of their most disliked programs but children of all ages watch it. A large majority agreed that the news makes them better uniformed. The primary qualities of feel - good shows seem to be heroism and overcoming the odds Girls’ choices emphasize adventure. The Harry Potter series and the “Lord of the Rings” movies appear in both the “feel-good” and “scary” lasts.
6. Обсуждение после прочтения текста.

Do American teenagers have the same/ different TV viewing habits as you? Why do you think that is so?
8. Подведение итогов урока.

Today we have talked about the viewing habits of Russian and American teenagers. We’ve understood that despite the differences, teenagers are almost the same in different parts of the world (or because teenagers live in in different countries with such different lifestyles, their interests are also different). We have all worked hard and your marks are… I hope you’ve enjoyed our lesson.
