Различные пути в подготовке учащихся к написанию писем

(в формате ЕГЭ)

Часть 1 –написание личного письма
В последнее время многие учителя , используя различную методическую литературу, ищут пути повышения эффективности обучения учащихся письму.

Если обратиться к формату ЕГЭ, то он включает два задания:

  • Написание письма личного характера (100-140 слов)

  • Написание эссе с элементами рассуждения (200-250 слов)


Сначала рассмотрим стратегии выполнения этой части экзамена.
Стратегии выполнения этой части экзамена

  1. Внимательно прочитайте задание и выделите главные вопросы, о которых нужно написать, определите формат письменного задания ( вид письма и тип сочинения)

  2. Определите, кому адресовано письмо и выберите соответствующий стиль письма .

  3. Составьте план письма / сочинения и подберите необходимые слова и выражения.

  4. Пишите в соответствии с планом и помните о делении текста на абзацы.

  5. Старайтесь использовать не только простые предложения, но и сложноподчинённые, используя средства логической связи.

  6. Старайтесь правильно употреблять временные формы глагола, используйте разнообразные грамматические структуры.

  7. Внимательно проверьте работу, обращая внимание на следующие моменты:

    • Соблюдается ли формат и стиль высказывания;

    • Логично ли текст делится на абзацы;

    • Правильно ли использованы средства связи внутри предложений, между

предложениями, между абзацами;

Для успешного выполнения этого задания, можно наметить различные пути:

1й путь- опора на модель. Модели хорошо представлены в современных УМК (как отечественных, так и зарубежных авторов) в разделах Writing Help.

В качестве примера можно посмотреть Opportunities (Michael Harris and others), State Exam , Maximiser ( Е.Н.Соловова, И.Е.Солокова), Practice Tests for the Russian State Exam

( Elena Klekovkina and others) и другие. Последние два источника, на мой взгляд, самые удачные для подготовки к ЕГЭ.

2й путь- опора на клише. Клише разрабатываются самим учителем , опираясь на собственный опыт или на опыт коллег.

3й путь- опора на предварительные упражнения, которые можно взять готовые из УМК или составить самостоятельно. Какой путь лучше ? Моё мнение- использование всех путей.

Что касается 1го пути,- использование модели, то я не буду останавливаться, так как наши и зарубежные УМК изобилуют такими моделями. Я хочу начать с клише.

I'm working at a lovely hotel in the city centre. I started there two weeks ago. The job involves answering the phone, making bookings and answering guests' questions - you know the sort of thing, I'm sure. I'm really enjoying it, actually.

All the people I work with are very nice and have been very helpful to me. The hotel manager has been especially kind. There's also one woman who's become quite a good friend already. She's a waitress called Sandra, and we get on like a house on fire!
Anyway, that's all my news for the moment, but I promise I'll write again soon. I hope you and your family are well. Keep in touch!

10th December
Dear Vic,

Hi - how are you? What are you doing this New Year's Eve? Jean and I have decided to hold a party at home this year, and we'd love it if you and Monica could come.
We're planning quite a small party with our old schoolfriends, so you'll know all of the guests. There'll be lots to eat and drink, of course. We've decided to give the party a Mexican theme, and we thought that a variety of Mexican dishes would be perfect, since all of our friends love spicy food. Jean's already started planning the menu, making decorations and so on.
You'll probably be coming by train, won't you? Just give us a ring from the station when you arrive, and I'll come and pick you up. I expect the party will go on quite late, so of course you will need to stay the night. Don't worry, though -

there's plenty of room for both of you.
Well, I really hope you can make it, Vic. Do try and come - it seems ages since we last saw you both! Please let me know as soon as possible if you'll be able to join us.

Lots of love,

Mark



What is the main topic of each paragraph?

Exercise 1. from Successful Writing –Upper Intermediate, Virginia Evans, Express Publishing
Read the closing paragraphs below and say whether they express a balanced consideration or the writer's opinion.

Key: 1,2,5-writers opinion 3,4,6-balanced consideration


  1. In conclusion, getting married has, to my mind, more advantages than dis­advantages. After all, what can be more fulfilling than a steady relation­ship with the person you love that lasts for the rest of your life?

  2. To sum up, camping holidays do have advantages, the main one being that they are far cheaper than other holidays. In my opinion, however, there is too much hard work involved for them to ever feel like a real holiday.

  3. To conclude, by looking after ani­mals and helping them to breed, zoos play an important part in pro­tecting many species from becom­ing extinct. Therefore, the negative aspects of keeping animals in cap­tivity are balanced out by the posi­tive ones.

  4. All in all, computers have both advantages and disadvantages. They may have replaced humans in many jobs, but they have also made our lives considerably easier, and it is now difficult to imagine life without them.

  5. On the whole, while most people go on holiday to rest, this is one thing you are unlikely to do on an adven­ture holiday. In my opinion, this dis­advantage outweighs all the advan­tages associated with this kind of holiday.

  6. Taking everything into account, there are both advantages and dis­advantages in keeping pets. In the end it is up to the individual to decide whether the pleasure associ­ated with owning a pet is worth the work that goes with it.


Exercise 2. from Successful Writing –Upper Intermediate, Virginia Evans, Express Publishing
Put these jumbled sentences in the correct order. Then write them out in two separate paragraphs, one including all the advantages, the other all the disadvantages. Finally, write a suitable beginning and ending for this topic.

Key: 1E,2B,3D,4G,5A,6F,7H,8C

Package holidays: Good or Bad?
A However, there are disadvantages to going on a package holiday.

В То start with, package holidays are cheaper than travelling on your own, as the price includes the air fare and hotel accommodation.

С Another negative aspect is that as you have paid for your accom­modation in advance, you often feel obliged to stay in that place rather than move around and explore.

D Furthermore, the brochures from which most people select a package holiday usually give you a good idea of what the resort offers, therefore reducing the chances of disappointment.

E Package holidays have several advantages.

F In the first place, as package holidays are less expensive, the hotel is unlikely to be top-class.

G Last but not least, when visiting a new place it is often much easier to have all the details arranged in advance as it can be rather con­fusing to plan everything by yourself.

H Also package holiday destinations are usually popular tourist resorts, thus there is little opportunity to experience the true culture of the country you are visiting
Exercise 3. from Successful Writing –Intermediate, Virginia Evans, Express Publishing
Underline the correct linking word/phrase. Key: 1-besides 2-argue that 3-in favour of 4-even though 5-for instance

  1. Besides/Despite, television affects the way we think.

  2. Many people are against/argue that we need advertisements in order to keep up to date with the latest products on the market.

  3. One point of view against/in favour of travelling is that it allows you to meet people from different cultures.

  4. Even though/Nevertheless most people nowadays use a computer at work, it will be a while before we stop putting our ideas down on paper.

  5. For instance/Still, people who know how to play a musical instrument are usually popular and make friends more easily than others.

"Having a pet is good for you."
1 In my opinion, owning a pet teaches children to become responsible adults.

2 In addition, a pet can be amusing.

3 However, pets need a lot of care and attention.

4 What is more, certain pets can be useful if you train them properly. .

В - shows fascinating documentaries (nature/wildlife), keeps us informed

about world events, covers international sports events

С - can watch variety of films and programmes at home, cheaper than going to the cinema

Comment on the following statement.
Fast food is very popular and saves time for busy working people. However, many experts say that it is not completely healthy.

What can you say for and against fast food? Write 200-250 words.

HELP! Fast Food Restaurants


For

  • They are quick and you don’t have to wait

  • The food is fairly cheap, especially for young people

  • They are the same everywhere, so you know what to expect

  • The restaurants are usually very clean and the waiters wear special uniforms (it’s pleasant to look at them)

  • They do their best to attract children, some of them organize parties for children ( for busy parents it saves a lot of trouble and time)

Against

  • The restaurants create litter

  • Rain forests are cut down to provide land for cattle for the fast food industry

  • The food contains a lot of fat and all is placed in a bun - that is unhealthy

  • You don’t really sit down to eat

  • The food is the same everywhere and you can’t order the dishes which you enjoy most of all or get used to

  • You can’t visit the restaurant before opening hours ( early in the morning)
