Людина не народжується особистістю, а стає нею, набуває якостей так необхідних для її життєдіяльності в суспільстві. Підлітковий вік називають перехідним віком тому, що протягом цього періоду відбувається своєрідний перехід від дитячого до дорослого стану, від незрілості до зрілості. У цьому значенні підліток – напівдитина і напівдорослий: дитинство вже пройшло, але дорослість ще не наступила. Перехід від дитинства до дорослості пронизує всі сторони розвитку підлітка. Він поступово накопичує досвід суспільного поводження, зростають моральна свідомість і соціальні переконання, вивчає основи наук у школі, формується теоретичне мислення, що починає складатися у світогляд. Саме в цьому віці формується уміння вибирати правильну лінію поводження в різних умовах і обставинах, потреба находити, діяти відповідно до власного морального кодексу, зі своїми моральними установками і правилами, свідомо керуватися ними у своєму поводженні.
І як добре, коли в цьому віці буде поряд добра, розуміюча, мудра людина, яка завжди зрозуміє, допоможе і підтримає.

The Plan of the Lesson
1.The theme of the lesson is What makes a personality». Our aim is to create a perfect personality of your classmate. We will discuss different things creating a perfect personality at the same time. So…Let’s start.
2. Do you agree with the phrase:
Personality is a set of qualities that make a person distinct from another?
3. What does the word «personality « include?
4. Let’s discuss appearance of your classmates.
5. We have read the text about genes.
Before doing the next task answer the questions:
How many genes have we got? 2.Whom do we inherit our genes? Can we have blue eyes if both our parents have brown eyes?
Let’s make a small presentation about the colour of eyes of your classmates:
On your pieces of papers make some notes around the colour of the eyes and hair of your perfect personality.
6. Character is the main component of the personality. Let's do some exercises dedicated to this theme:
It's believed that a face can tell much about a character. People have for a long time held the (0) belief that the face is in some way a reflection of 1) There is nothing (2) or mysterious about it: we all have different physical (3) and therefore our (4) is unique. How you feel about yourself also has a direct influence on your facial (5) _. If, for example, you have a lot of (6) self- , this will show in your face.
From ancient times, this (7) between particular features and aspects of personality was made, and a systematic study of the (8) developed and became known as physiognomy. Physiognomy has proved that people's faces (9) reflect people's characters. For those who don't find the idea convincing, let us take the example of (10) twins, who not only look alikе
but also behave in a similar way.
Young people face a lot of problems which are very important for them. Everybody of you is a teenager. What problems do you have in your daily life?

3.The first love.
5.Problems with friends.
6.I need pocket money.
7.I have too much homework.
8.I’ve got bad marks at school.
9.To dress well.
(Pupils speak on each problem)
2.Teacher: So, pupils, who are teenagers?
3.Teacher: Listen to the conversation between 5 teenagers. Try to tell me what is this dialogue about.
4.Teacher: Read the text and fill in the gaps in it:
politics, part-time, problems, spots, boring, money, chore, appearance, guy, drugs, grades
I am a teenager so my life isn’t easy. I have many (1)_______. My parents want me to get good (2)_______ at school. But I have so many subjects at school and some of them are extremely (3)_______. I have to do much homework and to read many foolish books, while some teachers don’t understand that their subjects are not the most important things in my life. Some of my friends worry a lot about their (4)_______ and their teenage (5)_______ which spoil our lives! I must confess that (6)_______, alcohol and AIDS don’t really bother me or my friends. The same I should say about (7)__________. What we really care about is how to impress a cute (8)_______ or an attractive girl. Of course I, like many other teenagers, have problems with (9)_______. Some of my friends found a (10)_______ job in order to have an opportunity to earn some money. But despite all these problems, the life of a teenager today isn’t a (11)_______, it is still fun.
5.Teacher: Read the texts and choose the titles:
1. Teenagers’ Interests
2. Do Teenagers Have Problems?
3. Typical American Teenagers.
4. Are Teenagers a Problem?
5. What is a Teenager?
A. Officially, a teenager is anyone aged from 13 to 19 inclusively, but most people would probably think first of the younger age group and exclude 18 and 19-year-olds. After all, once you reach 18 you can vote, get married without your parents’ permission, and join the army. On the other hand, children are growing up and developing more quickly, and these days 11 and 12-year-olds would like to include themselves in the ‘teenager’ group.
B. According to ‘the older generation’, teenagers are lazy, they wear ridiculous clothes, and are appallingly rude to their betters and elders; they find it impossible to be polite, helpful, constructive, caring or hard-working. What’s more, they spend all their time listening to awful music and watching unsuitable films.
C. Teenagers are human so, of course, they have problems. It is a difficult time for them because it is a period of transformation. It isn’t quite as bad as a chrysalis changing into a butterfly, but it may seem like that. It isn’t easy to grow up, and the dramatic physical and emotional changes are often confusing and worrying.
D. Typical American teenagers are in fact very ordinary. They think their teachers make them work too hard; they love their parents, but are sure they don’t understand anything; and their friendships are the most important things in their lives. Some of them do have a lot of money to spend, but usually they have earned it themselves.

dance, aren't you?
