Хід уроку


Presenter: Hello! Mу name is Tatyana Chornaya and welcome to our programme ‘Who wants to be a millionaire?” Today you have a very good opportunity to win big money. The participant must answer only four questions and win a million. Please, welcome our first participant Alina. Hello, Alina, how’re you?

Alina: I’m fine, thanks.

Presenter: How old are you?

Alina: I’m twenty-five.

Presenter: And what’s your job?

Alina: I’m an economist.

Presenter: Are you ready to win a million?

Alina: Yes, sure.

Presenter: Good luck to you. Let’s start. Now you may get 250,000 gryvnas if you give the correct answer to the question. The first question is …

What is a beat for a journalist?

  1. A vegetable;

  2. A hit into face;

  3. The subject of the article;

  4. Some kind of wood.

Alina: A very nice question. I heard this word when I was at school. Let me think…

  1. Підготовка до сприйняття іншомовного мовлення.

  1. Організаційний момент.

T: Good morning, pupils! Take your seats. Any morning for many office-goers or even homebodies begins with a hot cup of coffee in one hand and a newspaper in the other! For people hungry for news, it's a must to begin the day with fresh and latest news either in print or through television. But do you know the actual story behind the latest news? It takes a team of professionals that go into the depth of the story so that you can get fresh news when you unfold your morning paper. They are journalists. That’s why the theme of the lesson is “The job of a journalist in the 21st century”.

The objectives of our lesson are:

  1. Talk about the profession of a journalist.

  2. Read the text about types of journalists.

  3. Listen to the text about their qualities.

  4. Check how you are prepared to choose this profession.

  1. Основна частина уроку.

  1. Робота з монологічним мовленням.

T: Journalism refers to the news or feature stories (light, entertainment stories) that are expressed either in a descriptive way or concise pattern through different types of media. But who is a journalist?

P1: A journalist is a person who writes articles.

P2: A journalist is a person who takes interviews.

P3: A journalist is a person who travels a lot…

T: According to Wikipedia, a “journalist” collects, writes and distributes news which can be used in print, on television, aired on radio or even published on the Internet. What does that mean? The standard image of a journalist, and one often portrayed in movies, is of someone working a beat for a newspaper and finding stories. Which begs the question: What is a beat?

T: A beat is a media term for the area, or topic, a journalist covers. So a beat could be anything from local crime, to national news and Hollywood movies. Beats can be very specific, or broader, depending on the kind of publication you’re working for. A mid-size daily newspaper, for example, will have reporters covering everything from local police goings-on to local sports.

What do you think about a beat? What is it?

P1: It is the main thing in journalist’s job.

P2: It is the subject of the article.

T: You are right. Why is it of great importance?

P3: It’s important because you cannot work without it. A beat is the point of your work.

T: Sure. For example, if you are a journalist and you write an article about a person, this person is a beat. Do you understand?

All: Yes.


Presenter: So, what is your answer? Maybe - a hit into face?

Alina: I know that the profession of a journalist is very dangerous, but I’d like to choose the answer ‘c’ – the subject of the article.

Presenter: Yes, that’s correct and you’ve got 250,000 gryvnas. How do you feel?

Alina: I’m happy. But it’s not enough.

Presenter: we continue our game. The second question costs 500,000 gryvnas. I know that you’re quite a famous person.

Alina: Yes, you’re right.

Presenter: And what role do journalists play in your life?

Alina: These paparazzi can’t leave me alone.

Presenter: Nice of you to remind of them because our second question is:

What does the word ‘paparazzi’ mean?

  1. A mosquito;

  2. A dad;

  3. A bee;

  4. A camera.

Alina: Once at English lesson we read the text about these troublesome journalists.

  1. Робота з читанням тексту.

T: What types of journalists do you know?

  • A reporter is a type of journalist who researches, writes, and reports on information to be presented in sources, conduct interviews, engage in research, and make reports.

  • A Correspondent or on-the-scene reporter is a journalist or commentator, or more general speaking, an agent who contributes reports to a newspaper, or radio or television news, or another type of company, from a remote, often distant, location.

  • An editor selects and prepares written, visual, audible, and film media used to convey information through the processes of correction, condensation, organization, and other modifications performed with an intention of producing a correct, consistent, accurate, and complete work.

  • A columnist is someone who writes for publication in a series, creating an article that usually offers commentary and opinions. Columns appear in newspapers, magazines and other publications, including blogs.

  • A photojournalist collects, edits, and presents news material for publication or broadcast creating images in order to tell a news story.

T: Look at the photo. What is happening? (Paparazzi are taking photos of a celebrity.) Why do you think people enjoy looking at photos of famous people and reading about their private lives?

Answer the questions:

  1. What does the word ‘paparazzi’ mean? What language does it come from?

  2. Who was Princess Diana and how did she die?

The price of fame

There are endless magazines, newspapers and TV programmes which are solely dedicated to giving us inside information on the many celebrities that decorate our society. Celebrities and their lives are big business these days. Nowadays, if you are famous, it is harder and harder to keep your private life out of the public eye. A new 'profession' appeared - the paparazzi. These are photographers who will pursue celebrities in the hope of getting an interesting, unposed picture, which may make them a great deal of money.

The plural word 'paparazzi' comes from the character of a photographer in a Frederico Feilini film. Fellini called him 'Paparazzo' - which is Italian dialect for mosquito - and described him as 'a buzzing insect'. So, it's easy to see why the name stuck for this type of photographer in general. In fact, they often try to provoke a reaction from celebrities so that they can get a picture of them lashing out in anger.

British actress Sienna Miller has complained that paparazzi photographers are making her life such a misery that she's going to ask the British government for a change in privacy laws. She has said that she often feels physically threatened by photographers who constantly follow her. In the past eighteen months there have been several car accidents involving celebrities who were being followed by photographers. The most famous and tragic incident was in 1997, when Princess Diana was followed at high speed through the streets of Paris by photographers on motorbikes. The chase ended in her death when the car she was travelling in crashed in a tunnel. Three photographers were convicted of breaching French privacy laws for taking pictures of her that night.

On the other hand, there are many publicity-hungry celebrities who actively invite press attention. One celebrity magazine editor has claimed that some celebrities are colluding with the paparazzi and secretly taking half of the money the photographers earn for the shots.

So, is there anything to be done about the paparazzi? Are they a necessary evil in our celebrity-hungry society or should there be more laws governing their actions? And who is ultimately responsible for the present state of affairs? Celebrities? The paparazzi? The press? Or is it us, the public, who buy and read the celebrity magazines every week?

T: Are the sentences true or false?

  1. Celebrities can always manage to keep their private lives private. – False

  2. Paparazzi deliberately try to annoy the people they photograph to get a better shot. – True

  3. The word ‘paparazzi’ from the Spanish language means ‘a mosquito’. – False

  4. Sienna Millar thinks that photographers ought to have more rules to follow. – True

  5. Princess Diana died in a car crash. – True

  6. Paparazzi were found guilty of killing Princess Diana. – True

  7. Celebrities sometimes get paid by the paparazzi for having their photos taken. – True

  8. According to the text, the public is not at fault for the rise in paparazzi photographing. – False


Presenter: So, did you make up your mind?

Alina: I’ll try and choose the answer ‘a’ – a mosquito.

Presenter: Yes, that’s correct and you’ve got 500,000 gryvnas. Do you want to take your money and stop the game.

Alina: No, I’m not that kind of people. I want to go on.

Presenter: If you answer our next question, you’ll get 750,000 gryvnas. The third question is:

Who said these words: “If a person is not talented enough to be a novelist, not smart enough to be a lawyer, and his hands are too shaky to perform operations, he becomes a journalist.”

  1. Francis Bacon;

  2. Tomas Jefferson;

  3. Arthur Miller;

  4. Norman Mailer.

Alina: You’ll be surprised to hear this but I guess I know the answer. Our teacher of English once told about this famous person.

  1. Робота з аудіюванням.

T: As you understand from the text not everyone can be a journalist. So, what traits of character should he have? Listen to the text and write down the traits you’ll hear.


What makes a good journalist? Many things. Norman Mailer once said: “If a person is not talented enough to be a novelist, not smart enough to be a lawyer, and his hands are too shaky to perform operations, he becomes a journalist.” First of all, a deep and genuine interest in people. A person who has no interest in other people will never make a good journalist. So if you are not very interested in other people and think that most people are a bit of nuisance and you prefer not to have anything more to do with them than is necessary, journalism is not for you.

Hand in hand with this interest in people, should go qualities of sympathy, open-mindedness and an inquiring mind. Sympathy: so that you can see the other side of an issue even you disagree with the person who holds it. Open-mindedness: so that you do not make hasty ill-informed judgments. Inquiring-mind: so that you can really get to the bottom of the thing you are asking about.

So these are the basic qualities for a journalist, but the officially required qualifications are very different. Obviously a journalist must be well enough educated to be able to write fairly clearly in whatever language it is he hopes to work in.

What about the rest of the educational qualifications for a journalist? Often it is the pupil who was fairly good at five or six subjects, and not brilliant at just one, who makes the best journalist. This sort of people are rather balanced for the sort of life a journalist leads. But of course, nobody can say exactly what the best qualifications for a career in journalism are. They will vary enormously according to the individual.


genuine подлинный, истинный, настоящий
nuisance досада, неприятность, надоедливый человек
sympathy сочувствие, сострадание, симпатия
open-mindedness широта кругозора, непредубежденность, восприимчивость
inquiring mind пытливый ум
hasty поспешный, необдуманный, опрометчивый
judgment суждение, мнение, взгляд, оценка
to vary меняться, изменяться

Qualities: curious, sympathetic, open-minded, fair, objective, educated, sociable, patient, tolerant, polite etc.


Presenter: Tell me the name of this man.

Alina: This is the option ‘d’ – Norman Mailer. He is an American novelist and won two Pulitzer Prizes. Mailer is considered to be an innovator of creative nonfiction, a genre sometimes called New Journalism.

Presenter: Are you sure that’s Norman Mailer?

Alina: Yes, I am.

Presenter: Yes, that’s correct answer and you’ve got 750,000 gryvnas. You see the questions are not easy. Do you want to quit the game and be the owner of 750,000 gryvnas?

Alina: No, I will fight till the end.

Presenter: If you answer our last question, you’ll get 1 mln gryvnas, but if you don’t, you’ll lose everything. Be very attentive. The fourth question is:

Continue the proverb “Strike while the iron is … ‘.

  1. cold;

  2. hot;

  3. warm;

  4. burning.

Alina: I’m not sure if it’s hot or warm. Let me think.

  1. Робота з усним та письмовим монологічним мовленням.

T: As you said he must be educated it means that he must know a lot of words. Make up the words according to the following scheme:

a…., .a…, ..a.., …a., ….a

Apple, marry, scary, salad, polka

T: Make up a sentence or a short story using these words.

Example: A young couple decided to marry and made an apple salad to celebrate this event. They turned on the music and began to dance polka when suddenly the light turned off. They were very scary when they heard someone’s steps in their house. The light turned on again, these were their parents who decided to make a surprise for them.

T: It often happens that journalists tell one story in different ways. We trust those who do this more convincing. Comment on the situations.

  1. Imagine that people have wings. What advantages do they have?

  2. Find virtues in these situations:

  • Your suit has been spoilt by soup;

  • The teacher put you unsatisfactory mark;

  • Your parent are called to the headmaster;

  • You quarreled with your friend.

T: When a journalist writes a report, he has to know how the express his opinion in brief. Choose the phrase that has the same meaning as the following proverb:

Strike while the iron is hot.

  1. The smith works the hot iron.

  2. If there are good opportunities, one should use them at once.

  3. The smith, who works unhurried, often manages to do more than that who is in a hurry.

T: Divide into two groups. The first group will write advantages of being a journalist, another one will write disadvantages of it.



  1. Active way of life

  1. Irregular working hours

  1. Meeting with famous, talented and good people

  1. It’s impossible to switch your attention from the news
