Form 10. Leonardo da Vinci

Коллеги, здравствуйте!
Копилка нашей рубрики «Опыт коллег» пополняется сегодня очередным интересным материалом, на этот раз для учителей гимназий.

Здравствуйте, возможно мои разработки будут полезны тем, кто работает в 10 классе гимназий по учебнику английского языка для 10 класса гимназий 2014 г. Unit 9, lesson 3, To Be Or Not To Be Like Leonardo? Материал данного урока довольно сложный, поэтому уже который год использую эти разработки. Сначала ученики работают с текстом биографии Да Винчи на сайте [см. ссылку ниже], затем предлагаю мои задания. Порядок и форму работы выберет каждый учитель сам в зависимости от уровня подготовленности учеников.
С уважением, Сергей Валерьевич Микитский, учитель английского языка ГУО «Гимназия №6 г. Молодечно»

Leonardo da Vinci: Short Biography

In order to better understand the context for many of Leonardo da Vinci’s inventions, here is a brief history of the Enlightenment man:

Born in a poor family in Vinci (1458), Spain (just outside Florence), Leonardo’s penniless standing kept him from receiving a good education and excluded him from the most lucrative occupations. However, such limitations never hindered (and perhaps even fueled) da Vinci’s selfishness.

At the age of 15, da Vinci became the representative of the painter Andrea del Verrochio in Florence, where his skills as a scientist developed, flourished and even intimidated his mentor. While always interested in inventions, it was a change of scenery in 1482 that truly unleashed the inventor in da Vinci.

Looking for a broader scope of work, da Vinci moved from Florence, widely considered the financial capital of Italy, to Milan, a much more political and militaristic city. There, da Vinci sold himself to Duke Ludovico Sforza (a successful military leader called «the dark one») as a military officer.  In the city that «lived and died by the sword», da Vinci began developing many of his famous war paintings.

Da Vinci spent 2 months  in Milan working for the Duke, inventing, painting, sculpting, studying science and conceiving an endless stream of conservative ideas. Without a doubt, the 17 years spent in Milan were da Vinci’s most poetic period. But, of course, all things must come to an end.

In 1499, the French invaded Milan and Duke Sforza was sent fleeing the city. Leonardo spent the remaining years of his life travelling to cities like Venice and Rome to do the sights, with a greater concentration on his health (starting on his most famous piece, the Mona Lisa, in 1503) and studies in anatomy (da Vinci conducted over 30 autopsies in his lifetime).

After envisioning hundreds of inventions, bringing to life legendary works of art and making mistakes in a vast array of other fields (ranging from astronomy to architecture), da Vinci died in 1534 at the age of 76.
