CELEBRATION

+

-

New year party


It was the most joyful celebration of all.

We sang songs and danced and then we had

fireworks. The cake was delicious.


We had to stay with our relations all night long. It

was so boring. When we went out it was

unbearably cold. And we ate too much as usual.


Cousin's wedding

It impressed me greatly. The bride was so

beautiful in a long white dress and veil.

The church was very small and cozy and

they played the organ.



It was a real mess! I have never seen so many

relations before. The bridegroom was late and the

priest was talking too much. Everybody was

looking forward to the party.



Nephew's christening

I was really fascinated by the ceremony!

The baby was so cute and the marble font

was so beautiful. Remember, how the baby

cried when they put it into the water. And I

also liked the name he was given.


It was awful! They brought this poor little one

into that big church and then put it into the water.

He cried so piteously. And everybody was very

happy! It was really cruel.



Our birthday party in a disco bar

It was a wonderful idea to invite all our

friends to a disco. We had such fun! And

the DJ played one song in our honour.

Everybody was laughing and dancing. And

we didn't have to clear the house

afterwards.



This horrible disco was so crowded that I

couldn't see our guests. I didn't like the music

either. I think the DJ was very stupid. And how

expensive was Coke and sandwiches!



Discussion based on video "In Search of Happiness"



T: So , we've spoken about happy families , participating in social events, and we have one more issue "What is happiness?" Our next page of discussion is "In search of happiness". You're going to watch a short section of the video film and then answer some questions.

1. Planet Report

The Planet Earth Super Dossier reports on the health of the natural world:
Wildlife. By the year 2030, 25% of all animals, birds, fish and insects may be extinct. Why is this happening? Well, there are three main reasons. The first is pollution. Millions of animals die every year because man has polluted their natural home or habitat. The second is hunting. Man hunts and kills millions of animals every year. The third reason is the environment itself. It's becoming smaller. Every year man cuts down more trees, builds more roads, and uses more land for farming. This leaves fewer jungles, fields and forests for wildlife.
Pollution. Cars and factories are very dangerous for people, wildlife and environment. Two serious pollution problems are... (1) Acid rain- This happens when gases and chemicals mix with water in the air. The mixture travels for hundreds of miles and finally falls back to earth. Because acid rain contains a lot of chemicals, it kills fish and trees. (2) The Greenhouse Effect- Gases and chemicals are the reason for this problem, too. Some of them stay in the air like a blanket around the world. Because of this blanket, the Earth's climate is changing and getting hotter.
Health. People don't just pollute the atmosphere. They pollute themselves, too - for example with cigarettes, junk food, alcohol, illegal drugs (like heroin and cocaine). The question is - how can human beings become healthier?
Energy. 94% of the world's energy comes from oil, gas and coal. But these fossil fuels won't last for ever. There's only enough oil and gas for the next 50 years. Coal will last longer- perhaps another 300 years. Then what? Well, there are two possible answers.

(1) Nuclear Power -20 years ago this seemed to be the answer. But today, after Chernobyl, many people think it's too dangerous.

(2) Natural Energy - This means energy from the sun, sea, wind and under the ground. It's clean and natural, but there's a problem. It's also very expensive.
Land. 40% of the world's rainforests have disappeared in the last 80 years. Today in South America 50 hectares disappear every minute. This is happening because people need wood and paper, minerals and medicines, more room for farms and houses. But land isn't just disappearing in South America. It's an international crisis. In Africa, for example, the Sahara desert is growing bigger every year. Here the problem is erosion. That's what happens when farmers use the soil too much. It becomes poor and thin. Then, in the end, the wind blows it away or 'erodes' it.
2. Animals in Danger ( from Super Dossier ‘Modern Issues’)

Perhaps the most famous rare animal is the panda . Twenty years ago it was nearly extinct. Now, its numbers are growing again. It's even become a symbol for wildlife conservation. But many other species have been less lucky than the panda.


HABITAT  the problem
There is a serious habitat problem because.....

1) After pollution or destruction, habitats take many years (sometimes hundreds or even thousands) to grow again.

2) Pollution and destruction change the balance of nature . Each species in a habitat (for example, wood, jungle, marsh or forest) needs and helps the rest. If one animal , bird or insect disappears. All the others suffer too.

This is what's happening in the rainforests of South America, Africa and Asia. These are some of the world's oldest habitats. Or they were. Man is destroying an area of rainforest as big as Switzerland every year.

But the problem doesn't stop there. Habitats and animals are disappearing in Europe, too. Since 1947 in Britain, for example...

• 50% of the woods have disappeared

• 50% of the marshes have disappeared

• 95% of the meadows have disappeared

And what has taken the place of these green, natural places? Houses, farms, cities, streets, roads and factories. Because of this ( and pollution, too ) several British species are dying. In fact scientists believe that 30 British animals, fish and birds may become extinct by the year 2000.
THE SOLUTION
There is only one way to save wild animals and wild habitats - conservation.

This means...

• protecting animals in danger by law

• opening more national parks

• building fewer new roads

• planting more new forests

• cutting ( reducing) pollution

If this doesn't happen, many wild animals will soon have just one habitat - the zoo.


HUNTING ® Poaching
Man has always been a hunter. He still is. But many modern hunters don't just kill for food - they kill for profit. That's why so many rare and protected animals are still dying. Hunters like these are called poachers.

Fact In 1981 there were 15,000 black rhinos in Africa. Today, because of illegal hunting, that number is 4,500.

In the 1970s there were 1.3 million African elephants. Today , because of poaching, there are under 85,000.


The Fur trade
In the 1940s, 90% of skins and furs came from wild animals. Today that number is 15%. That's because most modern skins come from fur farms.

Fact It takes 40 dumb animals to make a fur coat. But only one to wear it.
Fur Farm Facts
• There are more than 2,000 in Scandinavia and 340 in Russia.

• They don't keep rare or protected animals.

• Fur farmers kill and sell over 34 million mink every year. ( *mink -норка)

• Animals in fur farms live in good conditions and die without pain (the farmers give them an injection).

But what about the other 15% of furs? Well - these still come from wild animals. Hunters catch most of them in traps. These are made of metal and are very sharp. Most animals caught in traps die very slowly.
Fact The USA traps over 20 million animals every year.
3. The Greatest Threats to the World’s Environment


Problem

Reasons

Effect

Solution

  1. 1.The extinction of plant and animal life.



  • Pollution ( air, water, land, industrial)

  • Killing animals

( hunting, poaching, for food, for sport, for research, for profit)

  • Deforestation (it is caused by trees being burnt or cut down)

  • Birds and animals lose their homes and die

  • Changes in climate

  • Less and less oxygen is being produced

  • Drought or flooding

  • Famine

  • protecting animals in danger by law;

  • opening more national parks and planting more new forests;

  • protecting jungles and forests ;

  • more money for conservation ;

  • cutting pollution;

  • introduce harsher punishments for illegal hunters;

  • raise public awareness about endangered species

2. Air Pollution

  • cars, buses , trucks...(exhaust fumes)

  • smoke and fumes from factories




  • it can cause serious breathing problems and cancer

  • remove the harmful industrial enterprises over the city limits;

  • all of them should be fitted

with traps and dust-

collectors;



  • encourage industries to use cleaner methods of production;

  • expand the green zone; build the dam with purification system;

  • install pollution control systems ;

  • freight traffic is banned in the historical centre of the city;

  • drive cars which run on unleaded petrol;

  • use bicycles instead of cars;

3. Water Pollution

  • human activities

( dirty rivers and canals, radioactive waste, chemical discharge and the dumping of dangerous toxins and raw

sewage);



  • environment disasters (oil tankers are spilling thick black oil into our oceans)

  • acid rains ( it is caused by factories and cars releasing poisonous chemicals into the air )



  • trees, lakes and buildings are being damaged

  • sea life is threatened with extinction

  • water is not safe to drink or swim in

  • it can cause stomach illnesses

  • international and national laws of the coastal states;

  • to control the purity of water

( check points, purification units);

  • to preserve sea life ;

  • to organise rational fishing;

  • to prevent oil pollution ;

  • governments should fine factories which pollute the seas and rivers

4. Land Pollution

  • garbage and trash thrown by people ( the problem of litter is caused by the production of too much packaging and food waste;

  • using pesticides and fertilisers;

  • nuclear waste




  • streets are dirty

  • diseases are spreading more easily




  • throw away less rubbish ;

  • use litter bins;

  • turn rubbish into energy;

  • controls on use of pesticides and fertilisers;

  • use recycling;

  • provide more bottle-tanks /can-banks



5. Global Warming

Greenhouse Effect



  • deforestation;

  • using aerosols, freezers with CFC coolants;

  • burning fossil fuels




  • rising temperatures;

  • melting ice-caps in the polar regions;

  • droughts in hot countries;

  • floods (sea levels rise)

  • cutting down fewer trees;

  • building sea defences;

  • planting more trees;

  • using alternative sources of energy



6. World Population Growth


The world population is growing very quickly.


  • Growing cities gobble up precious natural resources;

  • destroy and poison huge areas of land, along with the plants and animals that live there.

  • The trouble is our planet’s riches are limited. A lot of people around the world do not have enough clean water. In many countries there is simply not enough food to feed the growing population. Each day 40,000 people die from malnutrition. Huge demands for food have forced farmers to overuse their land. When the land is replanted too often, nature has no time to replace the soil’s nutrients.



Some people say that the Chinese government is right: the population should be limited. Others say that no government should make rules about family size. What can we do about overpopulation?


7. Energy Problems


  1. 94% from fossil fuels

  2. nuclear power




  • Coal, oil and gas will not last for ever, and burning them is slowly harming the atmosphere.

  • Nuclear power leaves dangerous radioactive waste.

  • Solar power (the sun’s energy as heat or to make electricity )

  • Wind-power (to build modern windmills).

  • Water-power

  • geo-thermal power




8. Holes in the Ozone Layer

Ozone layer is a layer in the earth’s atmosphere in which ozone is formed, preventing harmful radiation from the sun reaching the earth. The release of CFCs and some other chemicals into the atmosphere is considered the cause of the thinning of the ozone layer.


As a result, more and more people are getting skin cancer.


Some companies now make aerosols that do not contain CFCs , and these are often marked ‘ozone-friendly’

• preparing some posters:


« Take care of the Earth and it will take care of you »

« Speak to the Earth, and it shall teach thee » (Bible)

« The Nation that destroys its soil destroys itself » (Franklin Roosevelt)

« Civilization is being poisoned by its own waste products » (William Ralph Inge)

« Ecology has become the political substitute for the word MOTHER >> ( J. Unruh)

« The more we exploit nature, the more our options arc reduced, until we have only one: to fight for survival » ( M.K. Udall)

« The Earth has enough for every man's need but not for every man's greed ». (Gandhi)

« Man is a complex being: he makes deserts bloom - and lakes die ». (Gil Stern)

Ход урока



  1. T: You are invited to participate in the conference devoted to environmental problems « We and Our Environment » . We invite the citizens of St. Petersburg , specialists and educators to join it and share their views on the urgent global and local ecological problems.

  2. The Chairman: Today we’ll have to give a general idea of the ecological situation on our planet. Our planet is on the verge of a Global Ecological Catastrophe , so we have to highlight the most dangerous tendencies that have deadly consequences for us. Some people live in a town environment and the other -in a country one. The air we breathe, the soil on which we stand and the water we drink are all parts of our environment. Now Man is beginning to realize that environment is not just his own town or country, but the whole earth. Whether Man survives or not, depends on his ability to live in harmony with his environment. Now let’s look at this diagram.

The extinction of plant and animal life



pollution


World population growth







Global warming



Energy problems



Holes in the Ozone Layer

About two hundred years ago Man lived in harmony with nature, but now it’s a dramatic situation. We have a lot of problems. ( a 2 minute talk on the greatest threats to the world’s environment)


  1. Reporter: Can you give a more detailed picture of these problems?

  2. Scientist : We have been monitoring air pollution round the world for 8 years, we measure two things: the amount of sulphur dioxide (SO 2) in the air and the amount of suspended particles, in other words smoke. Sulphur dioxide is produced when fossil fuels such as gas, oil and petrol are burnt. Rain washes it out of the air but this creates 'acid rains' which pollute water supplies, damage crops, forests and buildings and may also affect people's health. Water pollution has become a serious problem in many seas and rivers.

  3. Reporter: Are all big cities equally affected by the pollution?

  4. Scientist: The cities most affected by sulphur dioxide are Milan, Prague, Santiago and San Paulo. But some cities with the reputation for clean air get worse in winter. Helsinki, for example, becomes one of the cities with the most sulphur dioxide content in the air in winter. This must be because of the great increase in fossil fuel and wood burnt to heat the buildings. Glasgow and Warsaw suffer in the same way.

  5. Reporter : Does the pollution of the air depend on the part of the world, where the city is situated?

  6. Scientist : In accordance with our investigations in some hot countries strong sunlight can change the exhaust gases from automobiles into stronger pollution. There may be desert dust in the air mixed with smoke.So there is some dependence on the climate. And such cities as Teheran. Baghdad, Delhi, Calcutta are among the smokiest cities.

  1. Warm-up Discussion

T: Ladies and Gentlemen, May I welcome you as participants of our project-conference «Education for a Happier Life»! Some world known educators and teachers come to our conference. The motto of the conference invites its prospective participants to focus on any aspect of secondary education. Today we’ll speak about education as a tool of making our life more productive, successful and happier. We have two working groups.

We consciously know nothing at birth. Everything we know came through a process of education-through other people teaching us.



T: So what does modern education mean to us?

The groups are expressing their ideas and thoughts on this problem.

2. Main Body.


  • Discussion (a group work)

T: Our conference looks at education because « the fate of empires depends on the education of youth» (Aristotle, 384-322c. ВС, Greek philosopher). We have a lot of problems for our debates and I'd like the working groups to think and express their ideas on some problems.

The groups are given cards with different problem situations. They read and discuss the problem within the group (1 minute), then they share their ideas and thoughts. ( содержание карт проецируется на экран)
