Form 9. Unit 8. New technologies are improving communication

Are new technologies improving communication? Я бы этот урок назвала бы так, сохранив вопросительную интонацию. Авторы учебника предлагают дискуссию, мнения по этому поводу могут быть совершенно разные. Завершить раздел предлагаю песней, написанной в далеком 1969 году о том, что нас ждет. Думаю, что нынешнее поколение девятиклассников она о многом заставит задуматься. Прослушивание сопровождаем параллельным выполнением заданий.

  Текст песни

In the Year 2525 

 In the year 2525, if man is still alive
If woman can survive they may find.
In the year 3535, ain’t gonna need to tell the truth
Tell no lies
Anything you think, do and say
Is in the pill you took today
In the year 4545, ain’t gonna need teeth
Won’t need your eyes
You won’t find a thing to chew
Nobody’s gonna look at you
In the year 5555, your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs got nothing to do
Some machine’s doin’ that for you
In the year 6565, ain’t gonna need no husband
Won’t need no wife
You’ll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube
In the year 7510, if God is coming, should have made it by then
Maybe he will look around himself and say
Guess it’s time for judgement day
In the year 8510, God is gonna shake his mighty head
He’ll even say I’m pleased where man has been
I’ll tear it down and start again
In the year 9595, I’m kinda wondering if man is gonna be alive
He’s taken everything this old Earth can give,
and he ain’t put back nothing
Now it’s been 10,000 years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew
Now man’s reign is through
But through eternal night
The twinkling of starlight
So very far away,
Maybe it’s only yesterday…
