Is everything clear?
Now read the passage very carefully. Try to grasp both the central idea and the
details. Start reading the text to yourselves.
Television and Children
Television (TV) has its good side. It can be entertaining and educational,
and can open up new worlds for kids, giving them a chance to travel the globe,
learn about different cultures. Shows with a pro-social message can have a
positive effect on kids' behavior; programmes with positive role models can
influence viewers to make positive lifestyle changes. However, the reverse can
also be true: kids are likely to learn things from TV that parents don't want them to
learn. TV can affect kids' health, behavior and family life in negative ways.
It's worthwhile for parents to think about what role they want TV to play in
their family. Spending time watching TV can take time away from healthy
activities like active play outside with friends, eating dinner together as a family, or
reading. TV time also takes away from participating in sports, music, art or other
activities that require practice to become skillful.
TV viewing starts earlier than other forms of mediaoften beginning before
age two. We don't know yet what effect TV-viewing by babies may have on their
development. We do know that time spent watching TV replaces time spent
interacting with caregivers and other children.
TV viewing among kids is at an eight-year high. On average, children ages
2-5 spend 32 hours a week in front of a TV. Kids ages 6-11 spend about 28 hours a
week in front of the TV. 71% of 8- to 18-year-olds have a TV in their bedroom;
37% have cable/satellite TV. Media technology now offers more ways to access
TV content, such as on the Internet, mobiles and iPods. Kids with a TV in their
bedroom spend an average of almost 1.5 hours more per day watching TV than
kids without a TV in the bedroom. Kids who spend more time watching TV (both
with and without parents) spend less time interacting with family members.
Excessive TV viewing can contribute to poor grades, sleep problems, behavior
problems, obesity, and risky behavior. Most children’s programmes does not teach

what parents say they want their children to learn; many shows are filled with
stereotypes, violent solutions to problems, and mean behavior.
Advertisers target kids, and on average, children see tens of thousands of TV
commercials each year. This includes many ads for unhealthy snack foods and
drinks. Children and youth see about 2,000 beer and wine ads on TV each year.
Kids see favourite characters smoking, drinking, and involved in sexual situations
and other risky behaviors in the shows and movies they watch on TV.
Now I want you to do some tasks on the passage you’ve just read and see how
much you have understood.

Обсуждение результатов работы. Summarizing
So, let’s summarize everything we’ve learned today.
And now can you tell me what television is: one of the greatest achievements of
the 20th century or “one-eyed monster”. Forget about being shy. (презентация)
1 Giving opinions
I think…
As far as I'm concerned…
The way I see it…
I suppose…
In my opinion…
I’d just like to say...
To my mind,…
If you ask me...
2 Polite disagreements
Maybe, but I am not sure.…
I have mixed feelings about it..…
I can see your point, but…
I’m afraid I’m not of the same opinion…
I’m sorry, but I can’t agree with you.
To sum up then, most of you consider that television have advantages and
disadvantages. I am sure that television is doing a lot of good because it is
invaluable for the information it provides; it has vast educational opportunities; it
makes people argue and discuss, think more; it is one of the mighty means of
forming people’s character and outlook.
But it occupies all our spare time. We rush home to be in time for this or that
programme. The violence on TV creates violence in real life, television is bad for
people’s health, and it is like a drug. And I think that you use and will use
television for your best benefit and enrichment.
