Class theme/topics discussed: Russian cartoons
Goal of the class: to demonstrate to the students such an important component of Russian culture as Russian cartoons; to practice speaking and listening skills
How did you structure the class?
1. Warm up.
Every student has a picture. The task is to find a student who has a similar (pair) picture by asking questions but not naming the object on the picture. When they think they found their pairing picture they explain to the class why the think they pair and show their pictures to the class simultaneously to find out whether they were right or not.
2. Watch a cartoon “Bremenskie muzikanty” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-HBgvJL5rI
Answer the questions:
Who is there in the cartoon?
Where the musicians are going? What are they doing in the castle? What is happening next?
3. Fill in the missing words from the song.
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
Laptop, TV, internet, handouts
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
The lesson went well. It was a bit difficult to discuss the cartoon because students were too relaxed and didn’t want to engage into the conversation.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
